Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LiTHBRlDGE HERALD - Tuesday, Februory 13, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEAN6 DIXON WEDNESDAY, FEB. 14 Your birthday today: Rela-' tionships are tested by your moocls and tendency to project your inner stress. Today's natives are usually pop- ular with opposite sex, may develop such a role that the true nature is difficult to know. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Avoid needless purchasing. Ev- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Blocked sinus may be problem Dear Dr. Lamb - For several years my wife and I have vacationed by air to Hawaii. On the last flight when the plane reached an altitude of about 10,000 feet I developed a sharp pain over my left eye and a burning sensation while breathing in my left nostril. This pain persisted until the plane reduced altitude for landing. On each leg of our flight the pain recurred and stayed until landing. I am told this problem was caused by a blocked sinus. I never had sinus trouble and seldom ever had a headache and I did not have a cold during ihis trip. Can a blocked sinus cause this condition? Is there anything that can be done before flight time to prevent this? I am becoming afraid to fly because of this pain. Dear Reader - Yes, a blocked sinus can cause this kind of problem when you're exposed to altitude. If the lining to the air passage of the sinus swells sufficiently to block off the sinus, for any reason, such as an allergic-type reaction, then the air that's trapped in it expands when you go to altitude and causes pain. As you return to ground level the trapped air is under the ordinary ground level atmospheric pressure and no longer expands. Such problems from blocked sinuses, and similar problems which cause painful ears, are common to aviators, and are just part of being exposed to altitude. As to what you can do in the future for such flights, this is one of the few circumstances where I would recommend some form of nose drop or pill that shrinks and dries the lining of the membranes in the nose just before flight. Overuse of such preparations can lead to chronic irritation of the sinuses. For occasional flights in selected cases they would be all right. Your family doctor can get you the proper medicine. Because of my long association with aviation medicine I feel impelled to tell you that you were not exposed to an altitude of 10,000 feet. Cabin pressure is quite different from altitude pressure. Commercial aircraft are pressurized to prevent exposing passengers to excessive altitude. I believe federal regulations require that the cabin altitude cannot exceed 7,000 feet and it's usually considerably below that. Nev-erthless, the cabin altitude is enough to cause discomfort of the type you describe in some people. Even though it is uncomfortable, it is not serious or dangerous. * � * Dear Dr. Lamb - Would you please comment on this. A young man goes to the animal hospital every time he has what seems to be a common head cold and gets a bottle of penicillin and streptomycin. He injects himself in the hip two or three times a day for several days, then he keeps it in the refrigerator and uses it again when he thinks he needs it. Dear Reader - A real cold is caused by a virus and viruses are not affected by anti-biot ics, either penicillin or streptomycin. Using penicillin can result in a penicillin sensitivity, then it can't be used when it's really needed. Streptomycin, when used too frequently or in too large an amount, can damage the nerve to the ear leading to permanent hearing difficulties. In short, the treatment is the wrong medicine for a cold and can actually be dangerous, not to mention the fact that the purchase and use of such medications without a prescription is illegal.

Ryan Cause of sleet Andy sends a complete 2-volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Caroline Johnson, age 11, of Wichita, Kansas, for her question: How is sleet caused? Meteorology is one of' our most neglected sciences. This explains why so many ordinary everyday weather events cannot be explained in exact detail. It also explains why we still are at the mercy of droughts .and deluges, floods and hurricanes plus an endless series of other unexpected disasters. Students who dream of benefiting the world might prepare themselves for research in meteorology. * * � First let's clarify what we mean by sleet and what the meteorologists say it is. There is a difference. Most ordinary folk assume that sleet is a soggy shower of ice cold rain mixed with partly melted snow. In England, the weathermen agree with that point of view. Our American meteorologists reserve the term sleet for a downfall of ice crystals or small pellets of transparent ice. They are smaller than hailstones, which appear frosty white because they are formed from different layers of partly melted and refrozen moisture. It seems that the formation of hail and sleet also varies, though at present meteorologists cannot prove exactly how the atmosphere creates them. For this reason-we can only suggest a theory. A theory, as we know, is an educated guess that may be proved right or wrong when more information has been gathered. We know that sleet and all other forms of precipitation occur when moisture in the at- Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Feb. 13, 1973 . . .

As a rule, the mysterious process begins at cloud level, perhaps several miles above the ground. The air up there usually is cooler, often very much cooler than it is at ground level. The creation of sleet most likely begins when water vapor condenses onto fragments of salt, dust or other small solid nuclei. This produces a cloud of misty droplets of liquid moisture. Between the cloud and the ground there are layers of different weather conditions, subject to change without notice. When cloud droplets congeal in drops of rain, they begin to fall. If they chsnce to fall through a lower layer of cold freezing air, liquid raindrops may be changed to solid pellets of ice. Ths is the form of precipitation that the weathermen call sleet. It may strike the ground as small glassy beads of ice, or several beads may clog together in odd-shaped bundles. This sleet is not snow or rain, not hail or a mixture of these things. Apparently it forms only when there is a layer of freezing air just above a warmish layer at ground level. * * * Sometimes the air on the way down is just warm enough to keep moisture wet - and the ground below is freezing cold. When the cool raindrops touch the surface on or near the chilly ground, they suddenly turn to ice. This produces a glaze that adds icy coats on the stones and encases every twig in an icy stocking. If sunshine follows such an ice storm, the whole world glistens and glitters with a million sparkling mirrors. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
