Those crash diets can ruin health Dear Doctor About five months ago, I went on a crasl diet. 1 then weighed 117, now 1 weigh 81) and I am 5-foot-2. You probably tliink I ;ain weight and so do my parents. But my real prob- em is that I convinced myseU so strongly that I was fat, I still feel fat when I eat. When am 14. should Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Randy Stan- ifer, age 12, of London, Ken- tucky, for his question: M'hy lias every snowflake different design? Several years age-, research ers probed deep into the se- crets of snpwflakes. The labor atory conditions precisely dup licated those in which snow flakes form in the weathery ac mosphere. The results were astonishing because the proce dure did not follow the usua' rules of ice and wafer. Scien tists had to fathom a branc new set of rules to solve the mysteries of how snowflakes are formed and why they look like they do. Feathery snowflakes are created from minuscule crys- tals of ice interlaced around minuscule pockets of We take it for granted that water freezes to ice at 0 degrees cen- igrade. Hence we would ex- pect moisture in the air to form the basic ice crystals at Uiis temperature. Then the snowflake building could be- gin. But the laboratory experi- ments revealed this is not the way it happens at all. The moisture in the air is reluctant to become solid frag- ments of ice until the tempera- ture falls several degrees be- low the normal freezing point of water. The tiny crystals needed to construct snowflakes may be no bigger than mole- cules and they are formed in different shapes. All of them, however, build the six-sided, or hexagonal, structure dictated by the shape of the basic ice molecule. Ordinary bricks are cubic ob- longs so they fit naturally to- gether for building walls. The odd shape of the water mole- cule forms hexagonal crystals of solid ice. And these minia- ture building blocks naturally arrange themselves in hexagon patterns. The shapes and sizes of the ice fragments vary as the tem- perature falls. At 3 degrees Centigrade below freezing, the moisture in the air tends to form The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE flat, six-sided plales of ice. A minus 5 degrees centigrade i tends to form tiny crystal shaped like jagged needles. A minus 8 degrees centigrade hollow crytals are formed six-sided columns. When Uie air is super-dry, the creation o this assortment of miniatun ice crystals requires a lowei temperature range. A low-hanging snow Is a turbulent mixture of air masses cool and cold, mois and dry. This situation creates a wide variety of floating, fly ing ice crystals. When the tem- perature drops to around minus 12 degrees centigrade, these minuscule building blocks be- gin to team together and con- struct snowflakes. The con- struction work goes faster when the assorted particles can assemble around floating dust, fragments of salt and silica, mica, and other minerals. Snowflakes use a variety of ice crystals as they are waft- ed between different weather conditions in the cloud. This creates variety in the hexa- gonal assembly of crystals and air pockets. Countless crystals of assorted shapes and sizes are assembled while the grow- ng snowflake is shifted from lere to there. It is not likely .hat two flakes are built under dentical conditions. It Is not ikely that two identical snow- flakes fall, even in a huge bliz- iard. Snowflake assembly also will temperature. Lab experiments showed that the [rowth of a perfect six-sided lake needs calm, gently cooi- ng air and plenty of time. Sud- len cold drafts cause lopsided In tie atmosphere, a growing snowflake wafts hrough countless drafts and elects its crytals from a count- ess assortment. Identical twins .re not impossible, but so far nobody has found a pair. Questions asRed by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 785, Huntington Beach, California 9264S.

Dear Reader You are one of many young girls who are victims of the "youth empha- sis" on excessive slimness. In truth, you have a serious prob- lem and the lack of good nutri- tion is contributing to it. You need food for energy and build- ing a healthy, mature body. I have always tried to stress optimal levels in all facets of living. Avoiding obesity or fat stores is important, particular- ly for adults. Young people should not get excessively fat but active, growing bodies need food energy, not starvation. I must respectfully but strongly disagree with the ad- vice that a psychiatrist wouldn't lelp. You have gotten into a vicious cycle that may ruin your life without competent prp- 'essional help. There are basic reasons why young people re- act as you have. You are prob- ably not aware of what factors are responsible for your preoc- cupation with your body weight. The factors you think are im- are most likely not the cause. You will need pro- fessional help to understand your problems and it may take some time for you to work through them. The end result will be an opportunity for a nor- mal, happy, healthy life. I don't think you can realize this goal unless you work out your prob- lems with a skilled psychiatrist. Ask your doctor to refer you lo a psychiatrist or call the county medical society yourself and ask for recommendations for a psychiatrist in your area. If all else fails, get a new doc- tor. Your life, health and happi- ness is at stake. This is too im- portant to ignore. I hope all young girls who are tempted to go on crash diets will learn j something from your proble and not get into the same dif ficulties.
