Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, S, 1974 Ask Andy MOTHS AND BUTTERFLIES Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Kris Boren, age 12, of Indianapolis, Ind., for her question: Do moths and butterflies differ? Yes they do, but you do not have to be an expert en- tomologist to tell which is which. Often you can tell by the clock, which sounds rather odd. If this method fails, there are certain plain physical features by which you can tell a moth from a- butterfly. About of these wide .winged insects have been named and classified. Scien- tists classify them both the moths and the butterflies in the order Lepidoptera, which is the second largest order of the animal kingdom. Only the beetle order is bigger. There are more, many more, moths than butterflies, Fun with figures By J.A.H. Hunter By J. A. H. HUNTER Each letter here stands for a different digit. TAPIRS RATE AS GREAT ANT EATERS Don't forget that we have very odd EATERS here! So what does it all add up to? TAPIRS RATE (Answer tomorrow) CHARTERED BY PARLIAMENT The Canadian Commercial banking system consists of 10 privately-owned banks, char- tered by Parliament and oper- ating under the provisions of the Bank act. and some of them are very handsome. But the average butterfly tends to be more gorgeous. All these insects progress through four life stages from egg to cater- pillar to pupa and winged adult. As a rule, the moths prefer to fly by night and the butterflies are creatures of the dazzling day. If you notice a gorgeous, wide winged insect fluttering around on a summer afternoon, he or she is most likely a butterfly. If you notice a velevety, wide winged insect flying around after dark, he or she most likely is a moth. You can use a more ac- curate estimate if you wait for the insect to land. If he rests with his wings held straight up over his back, your subject is a butterfly. If he rests with his wings spread flat from his sides, then he must be a moth. A closer inspection reveals physical differences. Both have sensitive antennas. The butterfly's antennas are skinny spikes ending in small knobs. A moth's antennas are shorter and usually tapered like feathery leaves. The average butterfly has a long, slender body to match her long slender antennas. A moth's body tends to be a lit- tle shorter and a lot wider. It is covered with furry threads and often her shoulders seem to wear a thick, furry shawl. In almost all cases, an amateur nature lover can tell the moths from the butterflies by their bodies, their antennas and their day- or night flying habits. Members of this order are rated as the most advanced insects and certainly the most beautiful. True, many moths are drab little creatures, but the luna moth and many others are gorgeous. Almost all of the butterflies have large colorful wings, and some look like flowery petals bedecked with vivid jewels.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF 1174 .ThiChleigo Tribune Neither vulnerable. North deals. NORTH AJ9 AK2 AQ7 WEST EAST W7543 4J1053 J942 K3 SOUTH 1087642 V86 41075 The bidding: North East South West 3 NT Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Queen of 9. When the high cards are evenly divided between his hand and dummy, declarer usually will not have to worry about lines of com- munication. However, if the preponderance of power is concentrated in one hand, entries to the weaker hand are often as scarce as hen's ieeth. When that is the case, declarer must utilize what entries he does have as judiciously as possible. Ob- serve South's technique on this deal. North was a little! light for his three no trump opening hid in theory, it shows 25-27 points. However, as compensation he did hold four aces, which should up- grade his hand 1 point. South's hand was useless at any contract other than spades, so he corrected to the major suit game. Note that this is not a slam try. Had South been interested in bigger things, he would have to make some bid other than signing off in a game contract. West led the queen of hearts, won by dummy's king. There were finesses available in three suits, but only one entry to the South hand. Declarer used it to best advantage. Alter cash- ing the ace of hearts and ruffing a heart to get to his hand, he led a trump to the nine. East won the king, but found himself in a most un- enviable position he was endplayed in four suits! No matter what he returned, he had to-present declarer with a trick. East did the best he could by leading another heart, giving declarer a ruff-and- sluff. South carefully dis- carded a diamond from his hand and ruffed in dummy. After cashing the aces of spades and diamonds, de- clarer came to hand with a diamond ruff and led a low club. Had West followed low. declarer intended inserting dummy's eight. This play gave him an extra chance of finding West with the jack- nine of clubs as well as the king. If the eight lost to the nine or jack, declarer could later finesse West for the. king. However. West follow- ed with the nine, covered by dummy's queen and taken by East's king. East cashed the queen of spades and exited with the king of diamonds. Declarer ruffed, led the ten of clubs and let it ride. When this held, he was home and drv.

Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I have what my doctor describes as Meniere's disease. It is located in my right ear where I have little or no hearing and I'm always dizzy. There is also a constant buzzing. Could you give me a little in- formation on this as to what causes it, if there is a cure and any other information on it as I am very interested. The dizziness is quite severe. Dear Reader It's a fairly common problem. Typically it is characterized by buzzing or ringing in the ear or ears, which doctors call tinnitus, with loss of hearing and dizziness. A group of patients have similar complaints without the hearing loss, and they are called "pseudo-Meniere's dis- ease" meaning false Meniere's disease. Many of these develop the hearing loss later and are then properly classified as Meniere's dis- ease. Some patients have nausea, vomiting and sensations of fainting with the attacks. The disease causes sudden at- tacks, then symptoms sub- side. The severe attacks may last a few minutes or several hours. During the severe at- tack the illusion of movement that the patient calls dizziness may be so bad that the patient cannot walk. Either one or both ears can be involved. The hearing loss may precede the other characteristics of the disease. The hearing loss is usually worse during the severe at- tack. As the attacks recur the hearing gets progressively worse. The buzzing in the ear may be constant even between severe attacks. Incidentally, this is only one of many causes of ringing in the ears, so I hope everyone who has this symptom will not im- mediately conclude they have Meniere's disease. The attacks of dizziness sometimes cease after the hearing is totally lost in the affected ear. Many patients have remissions of the attacks and may go for years without a recurrence of the attacks. The problem seems. to in- volve the delicate semicir- cular canals and hearing parts of the ear. It is not a disease of the nerve between the ear and the brain or of any part of the brain. Just why the delicate ear organ goes berserk isn't known. Some doctors think it is because of an accumulation of excess fluid in the complex structure of the ear. In cases where the hearing has been totally lost removal of the inner ear mechanism has provided relief, demonstrating that the problem is in the ear, not the brain. Most attacks can be controlled by various medicines the doctor uses to counteract dizziness, including those used to pre- vent motion sickness. Other measures have also been used, including a low-salt diet with variable results. It is fair to say that no one form of treatment has been a cure-all for all patients with this problem. It is important to have continued checks of your hearing and evaluation of your progress. While your doctor can't be expected to cure your problem, he can give you medicines that will provide a great deal of relief and make it possible for you to get along much better, specifically limiting or preventing disabl- ing attacks. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Dec. 5, 1974 The Nova Scotia built brigantine Mary Celeste was found at sea 102 years ago in 1872 between the Azores and Cape Roca, Portugal, with no one aboard. It started one of the great unsolved mysteries of the sea. She had sailed from New York in November with a cargo of alcohol. There was no sign of a struggle but her chronometer, lifeboats and papers were missing. The fate of her crew remains unknown. 1492 Columbus sighted Santo Domingo Island. 1560 Francis II of France died. 1615 Sieur de Poutrin- court, founder of Port Royal, N.S., died. 1933 Prohibition was repealed in the United States.
