Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuwdiy, Fubruiry 18, 197S Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I have developed spastic colon problems. I have been to a doctor and have no organic disease. I have also had x-rays which show spastic colon. For several weeks the doc-, tor kept me on a diet without any whole wheat bread or any food with roughage. This diet did not seem to help a whole lot. After I read your column on this problem I went on the diet you suggested, after which I began having considerable pain in the lower left side. Is this pain normal after going on a whole wheat diet until your body adjusts to it? I bak- ed my own bread with whole wheat flour so I was sure to get whole wheat. I'm stumped as to what to eat. Dear Reader Some peo- ple do have the problem you describe when they start a diet that includes more cereal fiber. The discomfort is related to excess formation of gas. This lasts about three weeks and then disappears. If you have too much trou- ble with it try to gradually increase the roughage in your diet. That will help some. Cereal fiber is particularly good for bowel function since it is not absorbed and it does soak up moisture. Its bulk with the moisture it retains helps to increase the size of the stool and prevent it from becoming a hard dried out residue that is related to the spastic colon problem. The spastic area is com- monly on the left side. That is thought to be the reason the diverticula (pockets of the colon) develop on the left side too. They are related to spastic colon and poor bowel habits. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Feb. 18, 1975 Western planes delivered the ton of supplies into Soviet blockaded Berlin 26 years ago in 1949. The blockade was imposed in June, 1948, in an attempt to force the Western powers to abandon their rights to the city. The blockade ended May 12, 1949, after the airlift which continued to September, 1949 had cost 1479 George Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence, was ex- ecuted by being drowned in a barrel of wine. 1688 Quaker community of Germantown, Pa., made first American denunciation of slavery. 1725 The Order of the Bath was revived. 1930 The planet Pluto was discovered. 1944 70 Allied bombers were lost in raid on Leipzig in Second World War. Switching from white flour to whole wheat flour and products containing whole cereal, particularly whole wheat products, often cor- rects bowel problems. The whole program is a bit more involved. For people who have this condition I recommend a bowel training program with the increased roughage. You get the details of this program by writing to me at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019 and asking for the booklet on spastic colon. Enclose 50 cents and a long self addressed, stamped envelope. It is important to realize that excess gas can be a problem for the first three weeks. But, if you can tolerate it, this condition will gradual- ly disappear. While increasing the bulk in your diet, it is a good time to start cutting down on foods that contain lit- tle or no bulk. That means sugars, sweets, and refined flours used in white bread and desserts. A good source of cereal bran is plain, unprocessed miller's bran. A ready source is ALL-BRAN. You can use this as a breakfast cereal. The more you use to begin with the more likely you will have gas problems. So don't go over- board at the beginning, just start perhaps first by just changing from white flour to whole wheat flour products. Then after a week start using a small bowl of ALL-BRAN for breakfast. Incidentally, rice does not contain any significant amount of fiber and you won't get much benefit from it. Otherwise most of the un- refined cereals such as the brans and shredded wheat are useful to provide roughage. There is some evidence that the fiber may also help pre- vent absorption of cholesterol from the digestive tract and may even aid in controlling blood cholesterol problems. People are beginning to dis- cover cereals again and it is a good thing for our health. Astrological Forecast by Sydney Omarr HERE'S JOE MOTOCK055 6oiN6 our TO STAIfT HIS BIKE...

Sometimes, however, blindly returning partner's suit can be an exer- cise in futility. Here is an example An orthodox auction let to a reasonable three no trump .game. West led the ten of spades, and when dummy came down South was de- lighted with the final con- tract. Even if he had to lose two diamond tricks, it seemed that he was assured nine tricks. Declarer won the spade opening in his hand and ran the eight of diamonds to East's queen. The spade re- turn was won by dummy's jack and the king of dia- monds forced the ace. East shifted to a heart, declarer played low and West's ace of hearts was the defenders' last trick. Making four-odd. East should have realized that there was no reason to persist in attacking' the spade suit. He could hope for no more than 4 or 5 points in the West hand, so West could not have the two entries needed to establish and cash the spade suit. Careful analysis would re- veal that only the heart suit offers any'hope of defeating the contract. Specifically, West must hold A-10-x-x of hearts to beat- the hand. At trick three, East must shift to not just any heart. The only card that will do the trick is the nine of hearts, unblocking the suit! If South plays low, so does West and dummy's jack wins. When East gets in with the ace of diamonds, he continues with the queen of hearts, and the defenders score three heart tricks in addition to the ace-queen of diamonds. It is equally futile for de- clarer to go up with the king of hearts on the first lead. West ducks, and when East comes in with the ace of dia- monds, the defenders can again cash three heart tricks. MUDSKIPPER Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Jim Kukucska, age 14, of Milk River, Alta., Can., for his question: What is a mudskipper? Though the mudskipper is a genuine fish out of water, he looks to all the world like a popeyed, supersize tadpole of the amphibian clan. Naturally, as a fish he is not related to our native mud pup- py, who is a genuine amphibian. He is at home along warm, muddy shores, in the sort of places where very young children love to play. The mudskipper belongs to the goby family, a multitude of small fishes that dart among the rainbow colors of coral reefs. As fishes they have gills to extract oxygen from the water. But unlike most fishes, they also have tissues inside the mouth and throat that can extract oxygen from the air. From his wide, froggy face to the tip of his tapering fishy tail, a mudskipper measures from 5 to 12 inches, depending on his species. His scaly skin and his remarkable fins are likely to be dotted and spotted with bright browns or reds, es- pecially during the courting season. His bulging cheeks are large gill chambers where he can carry supplies of water during his long hours on the beach. His most noticeable feature is a pair of round, turreted eyeballs, set side by side on the very top of his head. He can pivot them around to survey the scenery on all sides and from time to time, he winks one of his bright green or blue eyes. Also from time to time, he waves a gaudy fin'to greet a neighbor- ing relative. One of his favorite haunts is a brackish mangrove swamp where tidal waters wash around soggy roots. There, loiiing beside a group of friends, he uses his shoulder fins like elbows to rest on the mud, while his tail dangles down in the water. When alarmed, he scuttles across the mud, often faster than you can run. He can make his getaway with floppy, 3 foot leaps. Nobody seems to know ex- actly how long a mudskipper can live out of water. However, his favorite places are near the high tidal level, where he often builds a soggy burrow. In some species the dorsal shoulder fins are joined to form a sucker. These specialized fins are used to climb way up the trunks of .mangrove trees. However, from time to time this fish out of water must moisten his scales and his eyes. He also must dunk to replace the water in his bulging gill chambers. The various mudskippers in UJm are at home in soggy swamps ififn along the shores of West Africa, the Red Sea and parts of Australia. Some species live along lake shores of the Sahara region, where a fish must come prepared to cope with long spells of dry weather-. OASWOOO, RUH DOWN TO CHARLIE'S PLACE AMP GET ME A HAMBURSER MR.
