Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 11, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band is 56 and appears to be in good health. He is active physically and likes to hunt and fish. He is 5 foot -11 and weighs 175 pounds. We have always had a good marriage and have two daughters and one son, all grown and away from home. Now all at once he isn't able to have sex anymore. He tries but nothing happens, no response at all. What could be the problem? Do you suppose this means he has been having an affair with another woman? Or, does it mean he doesn't really care for me anymore? He is still loving and tries to make it up to me in other ways, but our sex life is non existent. I've tried to get him to see a doctor, but he says he feels fine and doesn't want to. What do you think? Dear Reader Impotence is a symptom not a diagnosis. Of course, he should see a doc- tor and find out what the symptom means. Many men are afraid to see a doctor about any problems related to sexual function. They seem to think this is too great a shame to share with someone else. So they suffer, often needlessly, in silence. So do their wives, many voicing or thinking the thoughts you express. I can't include all the causes of impotence here, but you can write to me at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on impotence. Send 50 cents to cover costs. Impotence is often psy- chological. It may be related to factors the person is totally unaware of. It often requires professional help to solve these problems. Sometimes the whole thing is related to self confidence. A failure, even after an evening of too many cocktails, will be over emphasized and fear of failure takes over. When the man's confidence is restored, sometimes even with a useless medicine he has faith in, his capacity may return as if by magic. In other instances im- potence is an indication of il- lness. It can be a sign of un- recognized diabetes. In these problems the diabetes affects the nerves to the sexual organs and the normal mechanisms no longer work. Early control of diabetes probably helps to prevent this complication. There are now techniques, some experimental and others fairly well accepted, where selected patients can have a flexible splint implanted which helps a great deal for impotence from nerve in- volvement in diabetes or after surgery. They have no place in treatment of impotence from psychological causes. Impotence can be a symp- tom of circulation problems to the pelvic area. A careful ex- amination of the circulation may demonstrate the cause. Some types of surgery in selected patients will relieve the problems. A small number of problems are related to decreased output of male hor- mone. This usually involves a somewhat older man. Even so, about half of men 75 years or older are still potent, and there are medical records of men well over 100 who have remained completely potent in all respects. Encourage your husband to see a doctor. He is not at all unusual, and he needs to find out what the problem is and get the proper help. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Dec. 11, 1974 King Edward VIII ab- dicated 38 years ago today in 1936 after 11 months of a reign that had aroused high expectations. Edward, later the Duke of Windsor, gave up his throne to marry the American divorcee Wallis Warfield Simpson. 1475 Pope Leo X born. 1848 Napoleon elected president of France. 1864 Florence designated as temporary capital of Italy. 1941 The United States declared war on Germany and Italy.

Miller (Dow Jones, paperback Dick has been bridge editor of the "National Ob- server" for more than ten years, and in this book he has selected some 110 of the best columns to appear in that time. This hand is from the book. The bidding needs some explanation. North-South were using the Precision System, which is based on a strong, artificial one club opening bid. North's first two bids showed a hand of 8 points or more, with 4-4-4-1 shape and a singleton heart. When South discovered his partner held both missing aces as well as a club honor, as suggested by North's club raise, he elected to try for a grand slam in his 4-4 major suit. West led the queen of dia- monds, and declarer saw no problems in the play. He took the ace of diamonds, drew trumps in three rounds, and started on clubs. When West showed out, de- clarer was in trouble. He could discard a club from dummy on a high heart, but he had to ruff both a club and a heart loser on the table, and dummy had only one trump. As a result, he was down one. Declarer overlooked a simple precaution that would have permitted him to make his contract. He should draw only two rounds of trumps, take the ace of hearts and a heart ruff and then cash a high club. When West shows out but cannot ruff, declarer cashes both remaining high clubs ending in his hand, dis- cards a club from dummy on the king of hearts and ruffs a club. He gets back to his hand with a diamond ruff to draw the last trump and scores the established club for his thirteenth trick. What if a defender had ruffed the first club? In that case, declarer was going down anyway, so he would lose nothing. And if both de- fenders follow to the first club, declarer simply draws the outstanding trump and claims his grand slam.

HEAD OF STEER. Ask Andy CHROMIUM Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Sandy Gino, age 13, of Philadelphia, Pa., for her question: Does chromium have many uses? A thin coat of chromium metal is used to protect bumpers and automobile parts from rusty corrosion. And, just for fun, it glints like shiny silver in the sun. Other forms of chromium work behind the scenes to improve other metals, to create paints and polishes, leathers and photographs and furnace linings. And just for fun it takes time from its chores to add the color to a couple of precious gems. Chromium in its pure form is not found in the earth's crust, possibly because Mother Nature regards it as too useful to be left lying around. However, it is there in large quantities, though dis- guised with iron and oxygen in a mineral ore called chromite. When separated, the silvery metal rates as a chemical element made from atoms that are all alike. This hard, handsome metal resists rusty corrosion, which is why we see it on auto parts and metal appliances. A thin coating is enough to do a protective job. This is for- tunate because the glamorous metal is very difficult to shape. A thin coat is added, atom by atom, by the process of electroplating. Chromium is not so temperamental about working with other metals. When alloyed, or mixed with steel, it SHOW EVA'S BODY BUENOS AIRES (AP) The body of Eva Peron, back home after 19 years, went on display Tuesday in an open casket next to the coffin of her husband, the late president Juan Peron. Eva Peron died of cancer in 1952. Isabel, Peron's third wife, ordered the return of Eva's body from Spain where it had been since 1971. Peron died July 1 of a heart attack and Isabel be- came president. creates tough armor plating for ships. Chromium steel is tough enough to make ball bearings and other heavy duty machine parts. When these alloys contain 10% to 18% of chromium, they are tough, rustproof stainless steels. Most of its useful chores are done behind the scenes when chromium forms chemical compounds with other sub- stances. Certain chromium compounds are used to fix, or make permanent, various dyes for the textile industry. A chromium and potassium compound is used to tan leather. Others form yellowish pigments used to make paints. An alloy of chromium and nickel forms a tough, heat resistant metal used in kitchen stoves and various heaters. Chromite, a form of natural chromium ore, is used to line furious furnaces. The name chromium was coined from an older word meaning color. This seemed logical because its compounds add colors to the artists' paint box. In nature, the fascinating element adds the green to precious emeralds and the red to the precious rubies. asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
