GEMINI (May 21 June You're back now to the subtle game of confusion. There's no let Dear Dr. Lamb Would you kindly write about pleurisy, possible causes and resulting pain and fever? Could this be contracted because of driving with an air conditioner unit vented directly at the driver? After a recent automobile tap my husband began to have pains in his right chest where the cold air blew at him. It does not get better and the doctor says it could be pleurisy. He has been troubled for two months1. Chest x-rays, electro- cardiograph and other tests are normal. Is there any treatment other than pain killers. Can this be cured or does it become chronic? Dear Reader The surface of the lungs and the inner sur- face of the chest cage are lined with a very thin clear mem- brane which is called the pleu- ra. Inflammation of this lining Tories move to the left on power FAIRVIEW (CP) Alber- ta Progressive Conservatives may be moving to the left on the issue of public power, pro- yincial leader Peter Lougheed indicated here. The party will ask that an assesment be made on Cana- dian participation and owner- ship of the utility companies and on the merits and advan- tages of the power grid system in the distribution system. Mr. Lougheed told the norm- nation meeting for the Spirit River constituency that con- cepts of competition and con- sumer protection must be re- evaluated. The new look is "a long way for a he said, "I know some of you are no' going to be very happy with that position." The party will seek for legis- lation to have Alberta farmers get electrical power at cost, he said. And it will also ssek re- organization of the Alberta Public Utilities Commission so the boards "are protecting thi interest first of the consumer.' In a close nomination battle Donald Moore, a Spirit Rivei farmer, Polled 79 votes, sb more than nmner up Dale Hahn, a merchant from Hine Creek. Fairview is 250 miles north west of Edmonton. is pleurisy. Interestingly enough, there are no pain fib- ers from this lining over the lung surface, so the pain must come from the chest wall. Many people think that the pain is caused by inflamed lung surface rubbing against the chest cage. This is probably not true. The pain appears to be more related to spasm of the small muscles between each of the ribs. When you breathe and the chest wall expands, these mus- cles move. Like any muscle cramp, the movement causes severe pain. This is why limit- ing the motion of the chest by tight bandages tends to relieve the pain. Muscle spasm can indeed be caused. by a cool air blowing ver the body surface. Severe, sudden pain in the neck mus- cles can follow sleeping under a fan. Pleurisy can be caused by a ong list of medical disorders Fortunately, most cases are caused by viral diseases that cause a lot of pain and ort but seldom cause any last- ng damage or serious illness The pain is usually far out of >roportlon to any actual dam ;er, but it is quite severe. Any infection of the lungs can associated with pleurisy This includes tuberculosis, the jacterial and viral diseases even tumors and rare diseases we call metabolic diseases. Treatment obviously depends upon the cause. In most cases small doses of aspirin will help a great deal. A heating pat may provide comfort an wrapping the chest tightly wit an elastic bandage may' mini mize pain. Of course, if the un derlyinj cause is a serious med ical problem, that too must be treated. There 'are other causes for similar chest pain. This in eludes disorders of the spin and shingles (a virus involve- ment of the nerve) which ma basis for alarm, tho' you yourself in for unjust criticism. Prudence could prevent much of this.

AJ The bidding: East South West Pass 1 NT Pass Pass 2 C Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Eight of 0 A great many declarers are afflicted with a form of anxiety neurosis when it comes to the handling of the trump suit. In their haste to draw trumps as soon as the lead is obtained, they are apt to overlook con- siderations of timing that may be necessary to success of the operation. South found that in order to make his four heart contract today, he was obliged to leave some trumps outstand- ing until the been reached. of obtaining a ruff. Declar put up the jack from dumm but East refused to be so obi ing as to cover. A heart w led to the king and anoth heart returned to the ace West discarded a small clu This exposed East's jack trumps to a finesse but, befo declarer continued this proces he paused to reflect on the o erall position. The way the c a r d s lie, a spade lead by West will defeat Werry sees trouble at Ponoka EDMONTON (CP) A Pro- ressive Conservative MLA said here serious morale prob- ems are developing at the Al- bsrta Hospital in Ponoka be- cause the government hasn't made clear its plans for the in- stitution. Len Werry (Calgary Bow- ness) said there has been little action concerning the hospital since the Blair report on men- tal health was tabled in the legislature 22 months ago. "Staff morale isn't a serious problem yet but unless a sen- ior official of the Department of Health soon clarifies the position of Ponoka within the framework of the Blair report, thsre will be trouble." The Blair report, endorsed in principle by the government, studied all aspects of mental health care in Alberta and rec- ommended less emphasis be placed on institutional type care and priority to out-patient and community treatment cilities. Dr. W. R. N. Blair of Cal- gary, author of the report, re- signed last Thursday as an "unofficial" adviser to the gov- ernment. Falling stars Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Kathy Weaver, ag.e 11, of Muncie, Indiana for her question: What happens to falling We see them as bright little rks arching down through sky and most of them disappear in a moment. Some- times one of these so-called falling stars is extra bright and lasts long enough to plum- met down to the ground. But don't expect it to look like a spectacular heavenly body. If you do chances manage are you to find take it for an ordinary peb- ble among ths ordinary stones of the earth. Only an expert could tell that the fallen star is .actually a grounded traveler from outer space. Those flashy falling stars are called meteors and astron- omers estimate that of them crash into our bulky planet every day of the year. These are the ones that are showy enough to be visible and most of them are no bigger than grains of sand. Many more dusty little meteors plunge through the earth's at- mosphere, too smal to blaze visible trails through the air. And we collide with only those meteors that happen to be space traveling through our section of the solar system. Obviously the spaceways swarm with meteors. Some are mountainous, others are. only tually sift down to the land an sea. Falling stars and othe showy meteors become mete orites and then become part o the earth. 9 The sizable meteors that sur- vive the fall carry amazin news items from outer space Stony meteorites ar.e -similar t the earth's rocky mineral: Others are metallic chunk mostly iron and nickel. Th most interesting ones are cal ed carbonaceous chondrite Recently, some of these wer found to contain amino acids those strange, chemicals use to build the complex moleculf of living cells. But this fab lous story provides the answe to quite a different question. V Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Scott M. Theobald, age 12. of Salt Lake Utah, for his question: What exactly is frostbite? By frost bite we mean tem- peratures low enough to freeze water. It so happens that most living cells are filled with wa- tery liquids and lower-than- normal temperatures can freeze them solid. When fragile plant foliage is exposed to frost, icy crystals form inside their cells. They act like tiny daggers and gash the delicate walls of cells and veins. This breaks down the organized ac- tivity in the tissue. The foliage turns black, withers and dies.

His tn-o club response is convention- al and requests the no trump bidder to show a four card ma- jor if he has one. South obliged bv bidding two hearts and North promptly raised to game in Ihe suit. West opened his singleton eight of diamonds in the hope trump immediately, dummy would have only one entry left king of clubs with which to make a diamond play. If it developed that diamonds broke as badlv as trumps. South would be left with a loser in that suit along with the three spades that must be conceded. Declarer decided therefore to test the diamond suit first. The three was led from dummy and, when East followed with the five. South put in the nine. This held the trick as West showed out for the second time. The jack of clubs was overtaken by ihc king in order lo repeat the diamond finesse. Smith cashed the ace of diamonds next and the club ace and simply got out with a spade. The defcnderp were able to take three spade tricks but. re- gardless of what they led at trick twelve, declarer sat. over East's jack nine of hearts with mai ooay icmpcraiure. aucr a generates heat up to tlle may be degrees Fahrenheit. warmed to around 104 degrees Falling meteors glow and ..._.... frost bitten fingers with snow. But scientists ._ cently discovered a much safer method. They recommend soaking our frostbites in water that is warmer .than the nor- mal body temperature. After a start to burn about 65 miles cbove the earth. At 35 miles, the dusty midgets are con- sumed to ashes. Those weigh- ing a few pounds or more sur- vive the fall, though their skins are crusted with burns and some break apart as they fall. The survivors either crash onto the ground or splash into the ea. This ends their space-travel- ing days forever. These grounded meteors become earth bound meteorites and add their weight to the earth's 6.6 sextillion tons. It is esti- mated that the meteors that strike during an average day could add 1.000 tons to the Fahrenheit. This brings back circulating blood with nutrients to start the healing processes in the frost-burned tissues. Questions aslied by cnildron of Herald readers should mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 76.1.
