Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18-THE LETHBRIDQE February Lawrence Lamb M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB This may seem at first glance like an indelicate question, but I am sure that your answers would be interesting to many middle-aged couples. After 35 years of happy marriage we've quarreled with a will and loved with a will, I am more than anxious for my husband's health and well-being. It seems that so many in our age group have the same complaint that makes one ask, "Must every man over 50 have prostate gland My question is, is it well to encourage amorous advances and thus the exercise of these organs, or is their disuse more healthful? DEAR READER I don't think there are any really good statistics to answer your question. The first consideration is the confusion about prostate gland problems. A man may have an infection of the gland caused by a variety of different bacteria This is like any other infection and may cause fever, chills and, because of its location, burning on urination and other symptoms These problems are best treated with appropriate antibiotics Most of these are of limited duration. In older men there is an enlargement of the prostate gland that can obstruct the outflow of the bladder. That is why it causes problems. Why the prostate enlarges is not known Theories include changes in hormone levels and even the possibility of adnormal circulation to the area regardless of what causes it, prostate enlargement does occur with monontonous regularity. I doubt that a buildup of sexual tensions affects either of these problems. A man will have an automatic release, whether he wants to or not, if the buildup of fluids becomes too great. This is particularly true of young men in their peak of sexuality If there is any advantage to sexual release, it is probably in the young man prone to infections. Theoretically, releasing tensions decreases the engorged prostate gland and makes it less likely to be a fertile bed for some bacteria to lodge from his body and set up housekeeping. I happen to believe, and the letters from readers confirm this, that people past 50 are not dead from the waist down Continuing an active sex life is good for a person's health. It seems to keep them mentally young as well. Perhaps this is because it gives them a continued interest in life. In any case, I would not advise a wife who has her husband's best interests at heart to discourage him from continuing to remain active. Sometime? a woman has a problem too. Her hormones, as you know, also change She may need some help to keep her interest going. Without a proper amount of female hormones, she may have changes that mate an active sex life difficult or even painful. This can be treated medically. But, as long as she is healthy, and particularly if she enjoys the closeness of this relationship, there is no good reason not to continue it, and there are a lot of very good reasons to maintain this part of the marriage.

Goran on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN e TM nmm Neither vulnerable. East deals. NORTH J72 V 8654 0 AJ 4KQ105 WEST EAST 4 Ii65 M7 0 1S54 0 K832 4S743 SOUTH KQ843 A2 0 Q107 AJ2 The bidding: East Soath West North 1 V Dbte. Pus 3 4 Pass 3 Pass 4 Pass Pan Pass Open lead: Ten of S7. While half a loaf might be better than none at all, be- ing half right at the bridge table is generally no better than being completely off the track. South correctly considered his hand too strong and his support for the minor suits too good to insist on his apades. Therefore, he made a takeout double, intending to bid spades at his next turn. When North showed a hand that was better than average with his jump re- sponse. South felt free to in- troduce his suit and a good game was IM nti 1 ivacneo. West ted the ten of hearts and, to guard 'against the danger that it was a single- ton, declarer won the ace. Since the opening bid marked East with every missing high card, declarer entered dummy with a dub to the ten and ted a low spade to his king, which held. He con- tinued with a spade to the jack. East took the ace, cashed the king of hearts and continued with the queen. Declarer was a dead duck. If he ruffed low, West would overruff with the ten. If he ruffed with the queen, West's ten would be promot- ed to a trick. Since declarer still had to lose a diamond trick, that meant down one. Declarer was on the right track when he crossed to dummy to lead a low trump toward his hand. However, that should have been only the first stage in his plan. After winning the king of spades, declarer should have re-entered dummy with the ace of diamonds and ted a second spade toward the queen! Note the difference that this play makes. East wins the are of trumps and cash- es the king of hearts. Now, when he leads another heart declarer can ruff with the queen to prevent an over- ruff. The jack of spades is still in dummy to draw West's tea of trumps, and declarer makes the contract, losing a trick in each suit except for clubs. in Your horoscope lyJefteDUon WEDNESDAY, FEB. 13 Your birthday today: Brings both the need and the means to sort out your life. Abrupt changes, arrival of long- awaited critical conditions, demands that you redeem old promises are all normal now. Revision of personal habits is not only necessary, it can be fun to achieve. Relationships are under stress care is needed in tending those you wish to retain. Today's natives are peaceable, but proud of their strength. Many of them work in vocations involving vibratory energy, light. ARIES (March 21-ApriI Now let well enough alone, especially financial arrangements and the enterprises of your friends. Expect no favors from higher ups. TAURUS (April 20-May As if you aren't determined enough, you attract equally stubborn opposition. Associates are open to critical views; don't give them a new story to work on. GEMINI (May 21-June Impulse springs forth and commits you to projects you don't fully understand, unless you're very busy doing what you should do. Keep promises. CANCER (June 21-July It is better to sustain an argument than to let your money get mixed into schemes of friends. Buy no more than essentials, minimum supplies. LEO (July 23-Aug. Any home or family situation can be stretched into a squall or squabble with little effort, and once at odds, it's hard to make peace. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Unreal estimates made by others in the past now plague present progressive efforts. Stay in there pitching while you have materials to work with. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Your money seems scrambling to get loose. Possessions, property should be subject to proper attention, definitely-arranged security. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Not the day to offer your personal conclusions on partisan issues, but rather a time for simply doing those things which advance your career SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Self-discipline works wonders which are taken for granted, unnoticed except by comparison with the easy course of overdoing and its results. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Minding your own business produces strange results mostly beneficial. Getting involved in the affairs of others lands you in the middle or muddle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. A delicate balance between career, public affairs, and domestic responsibilities must be sought Wherever you can, exert precise control over what you say. PISCES (Feb. 19-March The here and now is enough to cope with today, paying no great heed to theories, distant contingencies. Be patient with dissenting friends and relatives. (1974, The Chicago Tribune) Ask Andy POLLUTION Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Karalee Jarvill, age 11, of So. Sioux City, Nebraska, for her question- How does air pollution get started? The complicated process begins with waste materials poured into the air from man- made engines and industrial plants. Many of these emissions, though unhealthy, are not downright dangerous. However, serious pollution builds up when these original emissions are changed by sunlight and by various gases in the atmosphere. Someday historians will look back and wonder how our atmosphere got into such a state of unhealthy pollution. Most likely they will decide that the Industrial Age happened too fast. Machines and factories were designed, built and put to work in a great hurry- The population increased at a great rate and everybody demanded every new gadget right this minute. Nobody had time to consider what all this extravagant use of energy would do to the world of nature. For example, most air pollution starts with wasteful burning processes. The rest starts with carelessly designed chemical plants. The automobile gets a lot of the blame. Auto emissions are the unburned, wasted gasoline poured into the air as exhaust gases. Most of this material is hydrocarbon chemicals, which are not poisonous in small quantities. However, our streaming traffic pours forth countless tons of these auto emissions. And some of them react with the atmosphere to form destructive nitrogen compounds. Cars also emit quantities of carbon monoxide. When people breathe this gas in large quan- tities, they get headaches and fatigue and high concentrations can be fatal. Some of the worst air pollutants are the nitrogen oxides. Most of them start out as waste emissions from autos. petroleum plants and from factories that burn, or partly burn, fossil fuels. One of these emissions is nitric oxide, a colorless gas. In the atmosphere, nitric oxide forms the stifling, reddish- brown pollutant called nitrogen dioxide. Nitrogen dioxide harms plant life and hampers the breathing of people and animals. Even worse, in certain weather conditions, it reacts with the air to form more dangerous pollutants. One of these is sulfur dioxide, which is destructive to all living tissue. And sometimes this pollutant combines with atmospheric moisture to form deadly droplets of sulphuric acid. When things get this bad, it's time to issue a red alert. The worst kind of air pollution, of course, builds up around crowded cities. The mixture varies from place to place and changes with the weather With the Age of Industry, air pollution crept up on us unawares. When we realized how serious it was becoming, steps were taken to reduce it. This has helped somewhat, at least to stop pollution from getting worse. But ahead of us lies the enormous task of stopping it entirely. This will succeed when we control the emissions that start it OuaMona asked by cNM- ren of Herald readers ahowM malted to Ask Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Beach, California 92641.
