Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, December 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am a white male, age 64, weight 190, and height six feet two. I have been active in sports all my life particularly the con- tact sports. My present oc- cupation is football and lacrosse coach. I can honestly say that I am in pretty good health, particularly in reference to diet. I will say, however, I am not very careful in reference to rain, cold and snow, having spent some bad days playing, of- ficiating and coaching. I seldom wear a hat. For the past three or four weeks I have been pestered with a nagging burning sen- sation, at times right in the middle of my chest. This sen- sation seems to originate just below the breatbone and work right up to my throat where it seems to linger a few seconds and then passes away. This sensation at times will cause my upper chest to become sort of tight and sore, sometimes it will go straight through to the back. This sen- sation will come on at any time, while cutting the lawn, reading or watching TV. I do not smoke cigarettes. I do, however, smoke three or four pipes each night. I never smoke during the day. I drink an occasional highball before dinner. I have a yearly physical each September. It includes an x-ray, ECG (heart tracing) and other tests. So far all have been normal. At times I become terribly depressed and don't seem to pay atten- tion to what some people say, particularly my wife. Would you say old age is finally catching up with me? I would appreciate your comments. Dear Reader There is no way to be certain what you have from your history alone. BUT, you and anyone who has chest pain should seek medical attention at once. I don't mean in a day or two or a week or two, but right when it happens. Call the doctor when you have the pain. If you can't find the doctor go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Get someone to drive you, if possible I don't mean to be an alar- mist, but unexplained chest pain can be the first sign of a heart attack These are so common in our society that you have to regard it this way. Also, the best chance you have of surviving a heart attack is by getting early attention. That means you can't sit around home wondering if it is indigestion or a heart attack. Call your doctor or get to the hospital. You could be having indiges- tion and esophageal spasm, but your history is compatible with heart pain. You can have heart pain any time. You do not have to be exerting yourself. A good many people have heart attacks in bed or while riding in a car or while being inactive. The electrocardiogram (ECG) can be perfectly nor- mal until the attack occurs. It shows changes in the heart muscle that occur after the artery is suddenly blocked off. Keeping your weight down, avoiding cigarette smoking, and eating the right foods all help in preventing heart at- tacks, or at least delaying them. But people still get heart trouble, even when liv- ing a fairly healthy life by most standards. If everyone who develops symptoms which you describe would seek medical attention at once a lot could be done to cut down the per cent of deaths caused by heart attacks. Go see your doctor. 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 cholesterol, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Cholesterol" booklet. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Dec. 28, 1974 Yonge Street, the road from York, now Toronto, to Lake Simcoe, a distance of 50 miles, was started 179 years ago in 1795. The road, ordered by Governor Simcoe, was completed by April the following year. Col. Simcoe named it for Sir George Yonge, then secretary of state for war in the British government.

I Look for answer." on Monday) Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SUNDAY, DEC. 29 Your birthday today: This year, you learn to capitalize on your natural abilities and, to some extent, your limitations. Meditation brings inspiration and the serenity to get you through intensely competitive experience. Relationships bloom because you find it necessary to dis- cover what other people are really like. Today's natives are logical and persistent in their search for order. ARIES (March 21-April Leave business aside altogether and make this a family at home sort of Sun- day despite an oversensitive mood Share favorite pastimes, good music or a show. TAURUS (April 20-May Social activity is somewhat formal, but it's just as well that way. Don't expect anything from relatives or associates. Keep travel to a minimum. GEMINI (May 21-June There's no reason to talk about money questions you must solve soon. Avoid quarrelsome people. Think over recent developments in later hours CANCER (June 2l-July Do as much of what's ex- pected of you as conditions permit. It's unlikely that you can persuade many people to go along with your plans. Romance only dimly glows patience1 LEO (July 23-Aug. It's time you listened to good music or looked at something outside of your usual surroun- dings. Skip work if possible and concentrate on self im- provement activities or health. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Be realistic; accept people as they are rather than what you think they ought to be. Ex- press your views candidly. Don't promise anything. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. You spend time and effort on preparations and even more on decisions or bickering over the welfare of older people. Put business out of your mind. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Stick close to home and watch closely how others get along. Ease any conflicts among those you love. Take time out for reflection and new plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Self discipline is a key factor in your prosperity while temptations to squander arise on all sides. Give romance a breathing spell to redevelop. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Let well enough alone as you pace your way through local customs. Friends take off on tangents in all direc- tions; don't follow any of them very far. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Accept your natural limitations and conserve energy, time and space. A complete rest costs less than entertainment and brings benefits and a chance to pray. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Each to his own today. Choose your favorite com- panions and stay with them to learn from their actions. Young people get ahead of themselves. Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Debbie Alber, age 12. of Defoeestville. NY, for her question What is the gegenschein? The gegenschein is related to the zodiacal light, which at least gives us a clue to its whereabout. We would expect to find it in the zodiac. And the zodiac, of course, is that well travelled heavenly highway that belongs to the sun, the moon and the constellations that change with the season. The gegenschein and the zodiacal light are paler than the Milky Way and both appear in the zodiac. In our latitudes, we rarely see the ghostly gegenschein. But at certain times of the year, we may see its partner, the zodiacal light. It appears above the horizon before sunrise or after the sun sets, looking like a foggy, cone shape glow, tapering toward the top of the sky Its pale, pale glow is outdazzled by the moon and by city lights. So to see it, we choose a clear moonless night and go to a remote place. In March and April, we may see the zodiacal light soon after sunset The base of its ghostly cone appears on the western horizon, where the sun sank to rest. Its tapering top angles upward along the sun's sloping path, which is in the center of the zodiac. Early risers get another chance to see the eerie glow in September and October This time it appears above the eastern horizon, just before dawn Onre again, its tapering cone slopes upward along the sun's path In our latitudes, the sun's daily path is a sloping loop over the sky. Ir, the tropics, il climbs almost straight up and down and the noonday sun is almost directly overhead. When we travel to the tropics, we have a better chance to see both the zodiacal light and its ghostly partner, the gegenschein. There the zodiacal light appears throughout the year, with its tapering con? pointing almost straight up along the sun's path. As it dwindles, it may loop right over the top of the sky. From there it dips down fanning out to form a pale cone on the opposite horizon This second hazy light is the counterglow, alias the gegenschein Astronomers agree that these partners are hazy sunlight, reflected from swarms of tiny particles. Ap- parently a vast, thin cloud of superfine fragments reaches out from the sun's equator like a huge, flat plate. From the earth, we sometimes get an oval or edgewise view of it. We see its two hazy halves as the gegenschein and the zodiacal light Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) East slopes rules broken says Clark EDMONTON (CP) Robert Clark, Social Credit house leader, says the provin- cial government has failed to exercise responsibility in supervising the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. In a news release, Mr. Clark said Allan Warrack, Alberta lands and forests minister, has allowed the granting of 58 permits since the government declared a moratorium on ex- ploration in June. 1973. After a visit to the Caw Ridge area, one of the zones in which exploration has been carried out, Mr. Clark said it is are being broken "This points up the absurdi- ty of allowing exploration to go ahead while the moratorium is in effect."
