Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD 11 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Could you say something about halitosis? I've got chronic allergic bronchitis and chronic sinusitis. I'm on daily medications, mostly for I asthma. My mouth gets quite 'dry from the medicine and, according to some, it is a source of air pollurion. Recently, I've had some dental work done. I brush and floss my teeth and gargle mouthwash (someone at work offered me some mouthwash after I'd just gone to the ladies' room and used some) I also do postural drainage daily. My lungs are usually carting excess mucus around. I mentioned my problem to one physician and he suggested I use a mouthwash (every five minutes, Any suggestions (other than telling the supernoses where they can go') Sometimes I can't smell (a I'm 37, female, divorced, and to the point of becoming a hermit. I don't have sweet nothings whispered into my ear, but, "You smell funny." Dear Reader It is true that dental and mouth con- ditions can cause bad breath. However, many cases of bad breath are on an entirely different basis and mouthwash by the gallon won't solve the problem. You have already identified your problem in stating you have sinusitis and bronchitis. Both the lungs and the sinuses can be sources of bad breath. Both require treatment to eliminate the breath problem You may need to see an ear, nose and throat specialist to clear up that sinus condition. If you have a chronic infec- tion of your lungs, it needs to be treated and the infection eliminated Chronic infections sometimes require chronic treatment, often involving much more than just postural drainage The lungs are also a source of bad breath from what you eat and drink As an example, think a bit about alcohol. That alcoholic breath is not from alcoholic beverages in the mouth. The alcohol is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream Then when you exhale, you blow your boozy breath in other people's faces The alcohol in the blood is released into the air you ex- hale. This is the basis for the drunk driving test used by law enforcement officers. Now you can imagine that a gallon of mouthwash is not going to do anything about the odor coming from the blood cir- culating in your lungs. This principle holds true for all bad breath problems. I presume you do not smoke and drink if you have bad breath. Smoking contributes to infections of the lungs and sinuses, as well as contributing to bad breath in other ways. So, while you are wise to pay attention to your teeth and mouth, I doubt that is the main source of your problem in view of your story. Inciden- tally, don't forget the tongue. Many people clean the teeth well and forget that the sur- face of the tongue may be coated with food particles. Don't lose that wonderful sense of humor It will make the way a lot easier even when things get, if you will excuse the word, foul. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on con- stipation, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Constipation" booklet. Flashback "You must pay Ron for those books he got Mary told her husband "It can't be more than 20 bucks, but still you owe Fred smiled. "Not even that much, but I'll give him the cash he replied. "It's funny about the amount. If you add twice the square of the cents to half the square of the dollars you get the whole amount in cents How much was it? Thanks for the idea to F C Asbury, Toronto, Ontario. (Answer Monday) Yesterday's answer: READER was 134231. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.

Against his four spade contract, West led the jack of hearts, and in view of East's preempt, declarer was sure that it was a singleton. However, Eichel decided that his best chance lay in convincing East that it was he who held only one LI'LABNER heart, so he played low from dummy and won with the ace, just as if it was bare. He was apparently sacrific- ing a heart trick, but it was to come back later with interest. At trick two declarer took a losing spade finesse. East won and, convinced that West, not South, held the ten of hearts, shifted to the ten of diamonds. Declarer won in his hand, cashed the jack of trumps and entered dummy with the ace, in the process drawing the de- fenders' trumps Thpn hf> led a low heart from dummy. Who can blame East for falling for the trap baited so carefully? He followed with a low heart and declarer's ten won! Two rounds of trumps, followed by a dia- mond to the ace, 'reduced the hand to this position: NORTH 6 AQ EAST 4- K9 4- 4 K10 At this point declarer had lost only one the king of trumps. Now the queen of hearts was led to throw East on play. East took his king and could cash his long heart, but then he had to lead into dummy's club tenace, allowing declarer to score two club tricks for his contract.

The word geothermal reveals its identity when we take it apart Geo refers to the earth and thermal means heat Hence, geothermal energy must be heat energy that comes from the earth The whole thing is a fascinating story, full of promises to help to tide us over our present energy crisis until we learn how to harness solar energy We are told that the earth is warmed by the fiery furnaces of the sun. This it true But the earth also has enormous supplies of its own heat, most of it stored down in the interior, far below the cool, rocky crust Scientists suspect some of this internal planetary heat comes from heavy radioactive substances, perhaps in the core. Some is caused by the pressure of weighty crustal layers This internal heat is called geothermal energy, especially when it is close enough to the surface to be usable. As a rule, these usable pockets are in regions where fairly recent volcanic activity left lingering heat within the crust There it makes itself known when it uomes in contact with seeping ground water, creating hot springs, steamy geysers and smoky fumaroles. This heat can be used as a source of energy. People use this geothermal energy in Iceland and New Zealand, where hot springs and geysers abound The idea is not new. But modern scientists tell us that the earth can give us far more of this free, nonpolluting energy. Most of it however, is at deeper levels where hot lava once intruded between buried crustal layers. This heat may remain stored there for thousands of years All we have to do is to reach down and help ourselves There are several ways to do this though all of them use water, which is nature s own method of bringing buried heat to the surface. This works in a rather wondrous way because, under pressure from above, ground water remains liquid at far higher temperatures than its normal boiling point. Geysers and fumaroles es- cape through natural vents This removes the pressure and the superheated water turns to steamy vapor. The same thing happens in a man made geothermal plant Various plumbing systems drill down to the hot level and presto, the superheated water provides steam to spin the tur- bines of electric generators Surveys reveal numerous pockets of geothermal energy at reachable depths, especial- ly in our western mountains where a few plants already provide electric power Geologists suspect that the earth has enough of this wondrous energy to supply our needs for many centuries Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
