Much of its hydrogen and other bght gases escaped Eventually dense clouds formed niujsture and shed rain deluges of rain that filled the vast ocean basins In most temperatures settled between the freezing and boiling points of water The global temperature conspired with the gravity of our dense little planet to hold onto this abun- dant supply of life-giving water Things are different on the other planets Questions asked by c ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.

West could have no more than five diamonds Another holdup of the dia- mond ace would shut out West's suit The only other prospect for tricks was in the heart but East could not afford to lead up to the queen of hearts His problem was to get West on play for a lead through the lady To seek a way out of the impasse.

Together with two diamonds and the ace of that meant a two-trick defeat. DEAR DR. LAMB What are the side effects of a female taking male hormones for 10 to 12 years'7 Would it cause glittering in the eyes or a staggering feeling and blackouts9 What would be the side effects if one decided to stop taking them9 The problem is I had cancer of the or they thought it was But it has been in a standstill state for about 12 years One doctor said it was bronchitis DEAR READER It makes quite a bit of difference whether one has bronchitis or cancer of the lungs since you have had the question of cancer of the lungs discussed with you the possible diagnosis can t be much of a shock to you I would think the first thing would be to tind out just exactly what you real- ly do have Then the proper treatment can be given I would guess that the doc- tors believed you have a cancer that originated somewhere else in the body the breast or female and that was the reason for the male hormones Maybe you just represent a very successful treatmen1 I would certainly jiot advise you to stop the drugs without know- ing with absolute certainty what your diagnosis is under these circumstances For that reason I must advise you to stay on the treatment you have been on until your doc- tors tells you otherwise I would have a frank discussion with him and see if you can't get a clear un- derstanding of your diagnosis The male hormones used in women for such problems tend to slow down or stop a cancerous growth originating from the female organs They do tend to decrease the effects of female hormones in a nutshell tend to cause masculine-like changes They will cause the hair to get sometimes affect facial hair and body characteristics and even affect the person's perhaps causing a woman to be more aggressive Sex drive can also be increased Not withstanding these m selected cases hormones can be verv beneficial in treating difficult medical problems Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O.
