Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wtdnttdiy, February 12, 1175 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb For the past 10 years I liave had a con- dition known as wry neck (it was explained to me as a mus- ,cle where my head hangs to the right of my neck with a constant ache. I have been to very competent orthopedic doctors, and five years ago (hey put me in a hospital in traction for 10 days. When I came home my condition, if anything, was worse. A therapist was recommended and I went to him for a number of visits. This summer, under a new, doctor, I had 10 acupuncture treatments. There was no change in my condition and actually it made me a nervous wreck. I'm in my mid 50s and have, a responsible job where I" must be sharp at all times. I'm seldom absent. Other than the neck I'm in perfect health, but I am vain. I hate to have people ask me wlial is the matter with my neck. This condition bothers me' most when I am walking (this is really an effort) and when I am driving my car. Do you have anything at all to suggest in order to straighten my neck? This is really getting me down. Dear Reader Since you have had the problem for 10 years it is not going to be easy for anyone to do much.about it. My suggestion would be to see a good specialist in physical medicine. He can use the information from the orthopedic specialist and also prescribe what you might need-from a physical therapist. The first important thing to find out is what is causing the muscle spasm, if thai is what you really have. If the muscle spasm is because of some problem within the neck it may be necessary to correct (hat. Usually people like you have some other underlying problem and temporary relief, of the muscle spasm helps only a little while unless the underlying cause is corrected. It might be that you are one of those people with a short leg. These people will have the whole spine, including the neck, canted out of position like a crooked stack of dominoes. The neck is held in an abnormal position to com- pensate for the poor align- ment beginning from the bot- tom of the spine up. The fact that you have trouble when you walk means this needs to be looked into. The search for the cause begins literally from the possibility of a short leg, all the way up to the top, in- cluding-the heck vertebrae. Acupuncture is not much good for these problems un- less one means using a needle to locate small points of mus- cle spasm and then to needle them. These spots are sometimes injected with noyocaine. the same thing the dentist uses, to relieve the spasm. Such treatments by experienced hands are really great in providing sudden relief. These treatments too, though, are usually temporary unless the underlying disorder is corrected. That is why you can't just treat the muscle spasm. A lot of short term stiff necks from muscle spasm can be almost miraculously cured by techniques that involve stretching the affected muscle. It is a bit like reliev- ing a muscle, by stretching it. If the cause is something sim- ple like unusual exertion (painting the ceiling) that may not occur again, that may be all that is necessary. Recurrent attacks, though, also require a search for the cause. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents and a long self addressed stamped envelope to 'the same address and ask for the "Balanced. Diet" booklet.

EI6HTANP THE LAST FOUR ARE SNOWMEN HI AND LOIS Ask Andy Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF 1975. The CUaiiTribunr Both vulnerable. North den Is.

As an example, consider this hand, which played a role in deciding a l< ,m championship at a rerciil Midwest tournament. At both tables, the final contract was six spades, reached on similar auctions. Once a spade fit was con- firmed, both players their extra values. iSoulh checked on n v fore leaping to slam. At both tables, tho open- ing lead was the queen of dia- monds. At one table, de- clarer won with dummy's ace, crossed-to the ace of spades and ruffed a dia- mond. He returned to his hand with another high trump, and was unpleasantly surprised when West show- ed out, which meant that he had a certain Irump loser. South did the best he could by ruffing another diamond and taking the club finesse, but that lost for down one. Declarer's line of play was correct if he was playing seven spades, for then he would need a 3-2 trump break to make the hand. The only distribution that could endanger six spades was a bad trump break, and at the other table the declarer pro- tected himself against that possibility. There, declarer won the opening diamond lead and immediately ducked a round of trumps. East won the seven and took his best shot by shifting to a low club. De- clarer rose with the ace. ruffed a diamond, returned to his hand with a trump and ruffed another diamond. All that declarer had to do then was to cross back to his hand with the king of hearts, draw the outstanding trumps and claim the rest of the tricks with dummy's good hearts. This was simply a rnsn nf well rewarded. HAMSTER ORIGIN Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Dave Gyorkor, age 12, of Peoria, 111., for his question: Are hamsters bred from rats and mice? The cute little hamster looks as if he might be related to the rats and mice. And so he is. But he was not bred from these or from any other members of the rally rodent clan. Actually, he is a species in his own right, which means thai hamsters have been hamsters for millions of years. It is possible to crossbreed horses and donkeys and get mules. But the hamster is not a crossbreed of this sort. His ancestors were Old World hamsters, where many of his cousins still live freely in the wild. In their original homes, the pretty little critters are rated as downright pests because they do so much damage to the crops. In parts of Europe and Asia about 14 wild hamslei species live in burrows and concentrate on their food supplies. They do most of their grocery shopping at night, taking care to dodge owls and other dusky prowlers. When grains and seeds are plentiful, they stuff the surplus into their big bulg- ing cheeks. Often they dig for potatoes and other root crops. All the surplus is toted below and stashed in a storage chamber. Come fall, the panlry of a hard working hamster may be stuffed with 100 pounds of winter supplies. His well built, well run burrow has a cozy bedroom and a sanitary toilet, which is sealed up when full. The largest wild hamster a iiuffy guinea pig with a brown back and jet black tummy. The family midget is 2 inches long, plus a stubby tail. The first to be adopted as pets were the silky gray hamsters. Then, in 1930, an unusual hamster and her 12 babies were found in Syria. This little family became the ancestors of all our pet golden hamsters. Hamsters, as we all know, are very attractive pets. However, let's not forget that wild hamsters steal and hoard our food supplies. Hence, hamster owners should pre- vent their fluffy pets from es- caping and never turn them loose in the wilds. aiked by chil- dren of Herald ahould be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
