Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 1Q _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 29, 1971 Sesame seed Andy sends n complete 20- volunio set nf the world Book Encyclopedia to Paul Harvey Robb, age 11, of Tuc- son, Arizona, for his ques- tion; What pi Jin t produces sesame seed? Mrs. Alt Baba learned that "i-csame'1 was the magic word to open the treasure cave of the Forty Thieves. Being a housewife of the Orient, she also knew the merits nf sesame seeds and how they grew. Per- haps she helped to hoc the knee high sesame plants in the sunny fields. Certainly she knew seeds that are their pearly stuffed with rich golden oil. If she was a sensible woman she knew that, in the long run, this precious oil is richer hy far than barrels of stolen treasure. Like all cultivated plants, sesame descended from wild, weedy ancestors. Perhaps they were wayside weeds of India or China, though nobody is cer- tain, llicy have been forgotten because superior sesame plants have been cultivated in (he Orient since before the dawn of history. In the 1950s, they were coaxed to grow in Texas. Nowadays, fields of sesame thrive in warm, southwestern regions of North America, in Mexico and parts of South America. The sesame plant is an annu- al herb thai grows each year from a sesame seed. It reaches two in four feet high and its stem is crowded with rather coarse, hairy leaves. Those at the top are shaped like minnow fishes, those nearer the base are larger and usually have jagged edges. The flowers are tucked in the axils between leaves and stem. They may be whitish, pale yellow or pink, j Each blossom is about r'i of an inch long and somewhat like the tube shaped floweret on a foxglove spire. The sesame flower has five unequal stamens and a two- celled ovary. In time, the fer- tilised ovary develops a two- part seed pod. The sides of the twin pods are joined to form a slender tube. Their two pointed tips turn gracefully backward when the seeds inside are ripe. Then the pearly litlle seeds can be shaken from their crisp package. As a rule, the silky smooth seeds are pale prim- rose yellow. But some sesame seeds are brown and some are almost black. The seeds have a delicate nut like flavor all their own. They add something special to buns, biscuits and baked breads. But. I he real treasure is stuffed inside smooth little shells. When sesame seeds are crushed, they yield a light, pale golden oil with a delicate fragrance and a tempt- ing, nut like flavor. It is fine for all types of cookery and extra good in salad dressings. Sesame oil is rich in food value and low in poly saturated fats. What's more, unlike most veg- etable oils, it keeps indefinitely without going rancid. the cup animals. All of them have cup shaped umbrellas and most of (hern have trailing ten- tacles. They range from one inch midgets to an arctic giant with an umbrella eight feet wide and trailing tentacles 200 feet long. The class Scyphozra includes five orders and each jellyfish belongs in a small genus group and has a species name of his own. Many common medium- sized jellyfish belong in the order Scmaeostomeae, which means flag mouth. The arctic giant also belong in this order. His genus and species name is i Cyanea arctiea. Many of our i common offshore jellyfish of this order are in I he genus Aurelia. The one most likely to get washed up on the beach is Aurelia aurita.

(CopvriglH Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Scientists dispute smoking hazard PHILADELPHIA (Heuter) The battle over whether ciga- rettes cause disease is not over yet. It broke out again Tuesday at a symposium at the American Association [or the Advance- ment of Science convention. Some scientists still believe there is no hard proof of the effect of smoking cigarettes. The disputing scientists were E. Ciiyler Hammond, a vice- president of the American Can- cer Society of New York and Dr. Theodor D. Sterling, a stat- istician and mathematics pro- fessor at Washington University in St. Louis. Hammond have shown disease and mortality rates with cigarette smoking. Sterling says no such inference can be de- rived from the available data. As an example Hammond de- livered a paper on a survey run by the cancer society on more thaJl one million men in 1959-fiO by volunteer workers for the ACS. HIGHER DEATH RATE Tiie study of white males aged 45 to 79 showed death maintains studies a definite link in rates were consistently higher for current cigarette smokers than for men who never smoked regularly; "and the rates increased coasisf.ent- ly with amount of cigarette smoking." Lung cancer rates were far higher among smokers than among non-smokes and in- creased with amount of smok- ing. The over-all results, Ham. mond said, show there is statis- tical evidence linking smoking with higher mortality rates and certain diseases. Sterling said the statistics are loaded and unacceptable from a scientific- position that is also held by the tobacco companies and a minority scientists. Sterling says selection proce- dures for the studies are sus- pect. He said a Japanese study in which subjects were not deliber- ately selected but simply in- cluded everyone above a certain age in a certain area showed no difference of any conse- quence" between the death rate of smokers and non-smokers. 10 LIKE TO OtJN AN I J EN6LI5H SHEEP' THEV MI'S?

CANCER (June 21-July In India and warm parts of China, yearly crops of sesame take the placr of Ihc ancient olive groves of the Mediterran- ean. Sesame oil is used instead of olive oil and the harvested berbs are mulched hack into the soil. The oil also is used to make soothing lotions. Some- times it is boiled with wood ashes to make soap.

There was no way that declarer could di- agnose his opponent's hold- ing and -when the dummy was spread, he played the eight of clubs in the hope that West had underled some combination which included the nine. When East covered the eight of clubs with the nine and held the trick, he wt quite surprised. He re- covered in time to return the suit and West put up the jack which was ducked. The continuation of the king was covered by North's ace. South took an inventory of his tricks and observed that even if the heart finesse suc- ceeded, he could not possibly come up to nine, without first driving out the ace of dia- monds. A small diamond was led to the ten and West was in with the ace. He promptly cashed the queen and five of clubs, to set the contract. Observe that if West leads the king of clubs originally, North's ten will eventually become a second stopper and West from running ilie Miii when lie gc-ts in with the ace of diamonds.
