Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, February 7, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M Dear Dr. Lamb I am a 67- year-old accountant. I had a duodenal ulcer and hiatal her- nia. The ulcers flared up two years ago and healed in'a cou- ple of months, proved by x- rays. At the present I feel no ex- cess acidity and I carry on a fairly active normal life, However, at dinner time, poorly masticated meat or rice and other foods stick in my esophagus causing soreness when I try to force it down. This has happened twice in the last two weeks. I solved the problem by regurgitating the food. I want to consult a physician, but I don't know which specialist to see for this disorder. Dear Reader You are describing esophageal spasm. This is sometimes a complica- tion of the hiaial hernia. When the lower esophagus has been repeatedly exposed to the acid digestive juices squirted backward into it from the stomach, it undergoes changes. At first spasm may be all that occurs, but that can be painful enough. Later scar formation may result and it may become difficult to swallow solid food. Sometimes it is necessary to have treatments to dilate this area of the esophagus when it is too small. You can help protect yourself from this condition by treatment of the hiatal her- nia, particularly neutralizing the acid digestive juice and taking measures to prevent it from leaking backward into your esophagus. For more in-' formation on what you can do to help yourself with this problem, write to at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New' York, N.Y. and ask for the booklet on hiatal hernia. Send 30 cents to cover costs. For those interested in more information on ulcers there is also a booklet on ulcers. Follow the same procedure to order it. Anyone who has trouble swallowing must have a medical examination to be sure what the problem is. Oc- casionally it is from a tumor or even cancer in the es- ophagus, so it should not be neglected. You can see your family internist for your problem, but he may want to refer you to a specialist in gas- troenterology. Dear Dr. Lamb Two months ago I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. The only thing he has all his organs from his left side on his right side and vice versa. Is this harmful to him or will it be as he gets older? Could you tell me why it happened? I had a normal pregnancy. Dear Reader It is a rare condition, but it can occur without any abnormality at all. Some babies have other defects as Well, but your doc- tor could detect this with his examinations. If it is a simple reversal of, Astrological Forecast by Sydney Omarr SEE lOU'tt WRITING A8CWT ONE Of THE UKITIN6 iS PEAL WITH KEALHIWAN EMOTIONS Joe Greed was born in a small town in Colorado. Leo, in attempting to organ location you have perceive the "big nothing to wprry about. often neglects details. The No one knows just why this .natjve exhibits a tendency to happens. It is sort of like everything being a mirror im- age of itself. When you think of the complex changes the body undergoes from the time one fertilized cell starts the whole process, it is a miracle that we don't have more variations than do occur. Do you realize that the same set of plans, called genes or DNA, in that first fertilized cell literally has to duplicate itself, and parts of itself, over and over to form a heart, a set of lungs, a brain and all the other structures we have? The variation you describe1 can occur without any problems during pregnancy. Your boy may cause the doc- tors a lot of trouble as he gets older before they realize what is going on, but if he is free of any other development abnor- mality, this variation will not interfere with his develop- ment or health. I Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Feb. 7, 1975 Belgian rebelled against Dutch rule and set up a Regency 144 years-ago in 1831 and drew up a constitution modelled on Britain's and one of Europe's most liberal.

Leo gives benefit of doub.t too often. Man or woman, the individual born under this zodiacal sign seems to invite difficulty where it could easily have been avoided.

The perfect time for a bit of deception on defense is when it doesn't matter if partner is fooled by your play. Consider this example from the recent. European Championships in Herzliya, Israel. Sitting West was Sven Olov Flodqvist of Sweden. The bidding was perfectly natural. South opened in the suit below his shortness, then showed his second suit. North's hand improved tre- mendously once South bid spades, but not quite enough to contract for game. He made an invitational jump raise to three spades, and South had the values to con- tinue on to game. The defenders started with three rounds of clubs, declarer discarding a heart from dummy on the third. Looking at all the hands, it seems that declarer must to eleven tricks. In- dced. that, is exactly what happened when the board was reP'aved tne other table of the match. Here, however, Flodqvist suc- needed in creating a false picture of the hand. When declarer led the king of spades, Flodqvist dropped thequeen! Declarer was so mesme- rizodiy this card thai he un- wisely decided that he better neart situation be- drawing any more trumps. He cashed the ace of hearts, crossed to the king and ruffed a heart. Much to his surpl.jse. West over- ruffed! THE SUN BEAR Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Brad Petrovich, age 12, of Eugene, Ore., for -his question: Would a sun bear make a good pet? Andy's faithful readers know that he is rather fussy on the subject of suitable pets, Most animals belong in the wild, where Mother Nature tends them better than we can. It seems only fair to leave them there. Besides, many wild types make life miserable for members of the family and a few are downright dangerous. The sun bear, alias the honey bear, is the smallest member of the bear family. When fully grown he measures four feet long, plus a stubby two-inch tail.

Almost always his chest is marked with a creamy colored crespent moon. However, he is called a sun bear rather than a moon bear because in' his Malayan homeland the crescent is a knew how to fend to his special needs. Besides, the family lived in his homeland, where he was used to the climate. However, he grew quite fast and, though devoted to his human friends, obvious- ly needed and longed for a free life in the treetops. At the age of six months, it seemed only fair to send him to a large, zoo, where he could be protected while he developed his natural climb- ing skills. Soon he was ready to venture Into the forest where he naturally belonged. However, he never forgot his human .friends, and often returned to visit them. A fully grown sun bear may weigh 200 pounds, which is rather bulky for a house pet. He needs treetops where he can build his own bed from twigs and find insects in rotting logs. Obviously this pretty little bear is not a homebody and does not belong on the list of suitable pets for the human family. docs not detracl from West's sign of the rising sun. By fine effort.
