Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I had viral hepatitis and didn't listen to my doctor. I had a daughter to send through school, alone and an ill mother. I am a widow. I never stopped long enough to rest five minutes. In three months I was taken to the hospital unconscious and toxic with plenty of liver damage and wrecked nerves. Now I am on total disability, my mother has passed away and my last child married. I never did drink, but I smoked three packs of cigarettes a day for 30 years. After I was left alone, I would make a pot of coffee and sit down with my cigarettes and my pot of coffee. I lighted one cigarette off the last one while I watched my favorite T.V. programs, then I would eat and smoke more for hours. One night I saw a religious program on T.V., and I have never smoked since, but I gained 75 pounds. My doctor put me on a diet, and I have lost 40 pounds, but I still don't and won't smoke any more. Now I have started a new life at 55. The only exercise I can take is to walk, so I walk a mile a day and am losing weight. My bad problem now is my abdominal muscles. I can't lie on the floor and take exercise. Do you know anything I can do while walking my mile that will tighten my stomach muscles? I have lost inches every place from my walking, but don't know any exercise I can take standing up to help my stomach muscles. My dieting, my walking, my not smoking are worth all it has taken. Dear Reader Congratulations on a big improvement in your life style. It may save you a lot of trouble later on. I hope you have also cut down or eliminated that coffee habit. I'm sure why you can't lie down on the floor to do exercises. You must lie down sometime. If you can lie on your back in bed you could do exercises such as lifting the legs up and down to strengthen abdominal muscles or do sit-up exercises. If you do sit-up exercises, try them with your knees bent upward so you will be using mostly your abdominal muscles. The sit- up exercises are good for the upper abdomen. Even lifting and lowering the head will have some effect. Leg lifts are good for the lower abdomen, if yea are not strong enough to lift both of them, you can lift one leg at a time until you get stronger. You can also simply tighten your abdominal muscles as much as you can by forcibly pulling in your muscles then holding your stomach muscles in that contracted position for at least 30 seconds. Repeat this exercise as often as you can until you develop some muscle tone. You can also do the abdominal muscle tightening exercise while standing up. If you are able, you can bend over and repeat the process by increasing the number of these you do and repeating them several times a day, you will soon be on the road to stronger abdominal muscles and lose inches off that waistline. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on diverticulosis, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Diverticulosis" booklet. Pun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER It's a Magic Square today, a special 1974 Magic Square. That's a sequence of consecutive numbers arranged in a checkerboard style formation. The columns, the rows, and the two main diagonals all add up to the same Magic Total. And that's 1974. The greatest number in the sequence happens to be odd. What must it be, and how many numbers will there be? Thanks for an idea to Fred Ontario. (Answer tomorrow) Yesterday's answer: CROWS was 58061. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.
