Ask Andy PLANTS DO REST Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Teri Enigle. age of Montour- for her Do aay plaits There is a time to be busy and a time for a time for waking and a time for sleeping. These rhythmical routines hold true for people and for all other living things that belong to the planet Earth. Sometimes words mis- lead us because we use different names to describe the same event. For certain animals are said to es- tivate or some nap or sleep and all of them take rest periods. The plants also take long or short and. these are said to be dormant periods. Right the woodchucks are hibernating and the tender-leafed maples are dor- mant. Each in its own way is taking a long rest period through the cold winter months This winter sleeping is very similar in both plants and animals. ours is a very precise language with words to express even very slight differences. This is why we say that though animals the plants become dormant. A walk through the wintery woods shows us which of the trees are taking a dormant rest period. Plants need green chlorophyll to use sunlight to manufacture the food that keeps their cells busy. Ob- viously the oak and the beeches and birches are not operating at maximum capacity for they have lost their food-producing leaves Actually they are dor- operating at minimum capacity through the winter. Dormancy is not limited to the trees that lose their green leaves in the fall. During the all plants take rest periods of some kind. Even for winter is a lazy rest period during which no new growth is added. This semi-dormancy ends with an outburst of new growth in the spring. Our of are used to the warm summers and cool winters of the temperate zone. But what of the trees that live in the winterless Many of them are evergreens with huge wide rather than narrow pine needles. Certain- ly the year-round climate is suitable for year-round growth. But year-round it is not suitable for the plant world. From time to most tropical trees shed some of their leaves and take a rest before sprouting new growth. The earth's smaller plants also take dormant rest periods For many of the weeds are annual plants that complete their life cycles in a single year. They have a most ingenious system for getting through the winter Come the parent plants scatter their seeds and die down. The seeds lie sleeping in the soil until the warm weather wakes them up in the spring These plants spend the winter dormant period as seeds. the work and rest routines of the plant world are regulated by day and night and by the changing seasons. In the Arctic the low-growing vegetation beds down with the first frosts and remains dormant through the long polar night. Come their sleeping seeds and perennial roots awake from their dreams and burst into frantic activity. They must mature and produce seeds before the short Arctic summer ends and the cold winter night returns.

LAMB Approximately three years ago I started being con- stipated I was advised by my doctor to take one Dulcolax a day. Then I had to take two and finally three a day for ac- tion The doctor changed me to another but it did not have the same results for me so I continued the three Dulcolax with one of the new laxative tablets each day. The contents were red and I assumed the coloring was from the new laxative which was red tablets. Now after reading one of your columns I suspect it was blood. If I take nothing I am constipated and with the laxatives I have blood Is cereal fiber in my daily diet What lax- atives are bulk DEAR READER You've got a problem. The first thing to do is find out for sure if you are passing blood and what it is caused by. No one should neglect to see a physician as soon as possible after passing blood.

Hopefully you really don't have such a serious but you will still have the problem of a chronic laxative habit and you can't do much for it by taking more lax- atives.

Avoid all white flour products. The bulk laxative products are those that are agar agar or those made from pysillium seeds. A common one available is Metamucil. Even these should be replaced by a good normal diet and good bowel when possible.
