Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, February 5, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I'm one of the 50 per cent of Americans who are overweight. I've been battling overweight for 10 years, ever since my hysterectomy. I'm 62 now, 5-foot-6 and weighed around 125 to 130 pounds until 10 years ago. That's when I had surgery and the trouble began. I've been on the Weight Watchers plan but gained on their allotment of 1400 calories a day. Only by cutting the diet in half to 700 calories a day could I lose weight. At this level it took me 16 weeks lo lose six pounds. I've kept records of everything 1 eat for months and weighed it all on postage scales to calculate my calories. Doctors just brush aside my data and give me diet lists that cause me to gain weight, not lose it. Dieticians are just as bad. When I get a 1200 calorie diet with 80 grams of protein. I start gaining weight. Other than this problem I am healthy and very active. My thyroid is on the low side but not abnormal or low enough to require a supplement. Just what can a person do? Have you any suggestions for us hungry, fat people? Dear Reader You are not alone. I must conclude from the rest of your letter that you are indeed an active person. The secret in many cases such as yours is not the diet or the daily activity. It is how much muscle, not fat, that you have. This is the one thing that most weight control plans have ig- nored, and it can be devastating. The basic laws of energy mean that you must use the energy you consume, or it will be stored as fat. Most people think that means running it off or working it off. However, the body normally uses far more calories just sitting around than it does from daily activity. Your body has simp- ly quit using as many calories at rest as it once did, and the usual reason is because of loss of muscle .mass. Those who want a diet program can write to me at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on los- ing weight. Send 50 cents to cover costs. Women tend to have a drop in the use of calories at rest after age 40, and the middle age spread begins. Lots of light activity, including housework and walking, may not load the muscles enough to maintain their size. They .begin to shrink and the body starts changing from muscle to fat. Soon you are in a vicious circle. The less mus- cle and the more fat you have the fatter you get, and the less energy you need at rest. I approve of walking and similar endurance exercises, but in a case like yours, a good muscle building and maintenance program is needed. It doesn't take too much time each week, either. Most people don't unders- tand muscle building training. You don't need hernia producing straining activity. Light weights, springs, modified isometric contrac- tions and calisthenic exer- cises that use your body as a weight are all useful in this regard. Good examples here are the pushup and chinup. I think you need to find a good gym program, with someone to instruct you in these types of exercises, and give it a try. It is worth seeing what you can do for yourself. I do think, though, it should be a super- vised program at the start to be sure you don't overdo anything. Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER said Judy's father, finding her at the table. "It's a while since I saw you for breakfast, so now I'll give you this little reward and there'll be a nickel more than that tomorrow if you're in time again." Judy took .the cash gladly. "What about the days after she asked. "Will you go on raising it a nickel a day every "I'll do just replied Tony. "I guess it won't be for long anyway." He was right! The arrange- ment cost him only two dollars in all, so how much did he give Judy that first mor- ning? (Answer tomorrow) Yesterday's answer: SEAL was 9728. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Yalta Conference of Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin opened at the Black Sea port 30 years ago in 1945.

Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF Roth vulnerable. West deals. NORTH VAK10732 963 WEST EAST AK 108544 QJ72 K3 SOUTH 4AQJ1062 5 Void The bidding: West North East South I 1 2 2 3 3V Piss 4 Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of There are many reasons why it might not be advis- able to ,draw trumps at the first opportunity. At times, the trump suit constitutes the only means of transpor- tation between declarer's hand and dummy. Consider this hand from a regional tournament in Florida. It. was dealt in a team match, and at both tables South became declarer at a contract of four spades. Despite the fact that the high cards were evenly di- vided between the two sides, Soiith's distributional assets made the spade game a rea- sonable undertaking. At both tables. West led the king of diamonds, ruffed by declarer. At one table, de- clarer drew three rounds of trumps, then led a club. West won the king and play- ed another diamond, forcing declarer again. South was now down to only one trump. He led another club, but East, Mrs. Edith Kemp, one of the country's great wo- man players, refused to take her ace! Declarer was helpless. He could get back to his hand only by ruffing a diamond or a heart, but that would run him out of trumps. So declarer reluctantly had to settle for nine tricks spades, one club, and the ace and king of hearts. William Seamon was the declarer at the other table. After ruffing the opening diamond lead, he immedi- ately led a club. Now. it was the defenders who were helpless. West won the king of clubs and played a second diamond, but it was to no avail. Declarer ruffed and continued another club. East had to win the ace or lose ii (declarer could come to his hand with a spade and ruff a club with the king of and not even a third diamond could embarrass de- clarer. He simply ruffed in his hand, drew three rounds of trumps, running every- body out of spades, and then had four cluhs to cash for an overtrick. Astrological Forecast by Sydney Omarr The silver spoon is not Capricorn, nor is the prover- bial red carpet. When this native succeeds, it usually is because of hard work and determination and the stub- bornness necessary to over- turn odds and overcome ob- stacles. Capricorn does not have an easy path, but this native keeps position once it is obtained. Incidentally, there have been more heavyweight boxing champions born under Capricorn than any other zodiacal sign. Capricorn fights to attain and obtain and it is not easy to shove a goat off the mountain. ARIES (March 21-April Face facts about money and partner, mate. Be specific.

What was taken for granted may be part of a new, tougher policy. Capricorn, Cancer may be in picture. Don't play games with money or love. Stakes are high! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. You finish project. Assign- ment is completed to your ad- vantage. You gain prestige and will take on added respon- sibility. Aries, Libra are like-. ly to be involved. What had been out of control is returned to your authority. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Original ideas "click." Now you can make fresh start and get needed backing.

Ask Andy HEARING Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Annette Ikeda, age 10, of Costa Mesa, Calif., for her question: Do dogs hear better than people? Your own dear dog may be a true breed or an ordinary pooch with a mixture of ancestors. In any case, you can be sure that he hears softer sounds from farther away than you can hear. He also hears a lot of super high notes that your ears cannot catch at all. What's more, he has a keener nose for delecting smells. However, your bright eyes are sharper than his and he cannot see colors at all. It is a nice idea to train your dog to come when you blow a silent' whistle. Actually, this special dog whistle is not real- ly silent. The sound it makes just cannot be heard by human ears. It cannot bother the human neighbors but it is heard by the neighborhood dogs. This is because our ears hear notes that go only so high and a dog can hear notes that are higher. Maybe you can hear human voices from 25 yards down the street. But your dog can hear sounds of this sort from 10 times farther away. His ears are much keener than ours, and he also hears sounds we never hear. And, as a rule, a smallish dog has sharper ears than the larger types. Most of the sounds we hear are caused by vibrations jogg- ing through the air. High notes vibrate faster than low notes. For example, the lowest notes we hear vibrate at about 20 times per second, the highest at about times per second. The range of normal human hearing includes about 10 octaves. Our ears are deaf to the dog whistle because its sounds yibrale faster than per second. A dog can hear it because his keener ears can hear sound vibrations as high as times per second. What's more, we can train the smart fellow to come when he hears his own personal whistle. Training starts when you blow the whistle and serve his dinner or give him a friendly caress. He soon catches on and comes running for his reward when he hears his whistle from afar. A dog's world is full of sounds we cannot hear and smells we cannot smell: Though he sees quite he prefers to depend upon sounds and scents to bring him news of what goes on around him. A trained dog can scent his master in a huge crowd of people, track a lost person through the wilderness or sniff out a small sack of drugs in a whole warehouse full of crates.
