Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD February 10, 1974 Dear Dr. Lamb I am an instructor of physical education, and was a student when you visited our campus. Since then I have encountered some people who have disagreed with me when I told them that eating food late at night didn't tend to make you fatter than eating the same food any time of the day. I remember you discussing this matter and explaining that it was like "putting money in the bank not when, but how much." Could you please give me any information so I can document my statement to these disconcerting people? Dear Reader -1 am always flattered when someone remembers something I have said in a lecture. You have quoted me correctly. I too have had an occasional person question this fact. Proving it to your hecklers is a little bit like proving that toe sun comes up in the east. The statement is based on one of the must fundamental laws of nature, the law of conservation of energy. It states, as you will find in any adequate college text of physics, "energy can neither be created nor destroyed." A calorie is a unit of energy, described as the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of water one degree centigrade. Energy in our food is measured in calories. It follows that the calories in our food can neither be increased nor decreased by the time of day they are eaten, a calorie is a calorie in the morning, at. noon, in the evening, at night seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. People who do not understand this or will not accept it are ignoring the fundamental laws of nature. This principle also applies to many diets that have been proposed. There is no magic way to defy the laws of physics. Our body is a calorie processor. We use the calories in the food we eat, or we store them as fat. Like all energy systems, it is cumulative. That means the changes in your body at the end of a day, a week or a month represent the sum total of the energy in, minus the energy used. If you eat more energy than you expend you get fat. The person who expends more energy than he heats uses the energy in the fat stores to make up the difference. So, it doesn't make a particle of difference whether you eat 2000 calories for breaktast and 400 calories all the rest of the day or whether you eat only 400 calories for breakfast and 2000 calories before going to bed. The end result is 2400 calories in, and if you don't use that much that day the extra calories are stored in fat. People who do eat a lot of food at night are most likely to get fat, for quite different reasons. Most people who don't get food energy during the day tend to be less active. They are not active at night either. The net result is their energy expenditure is usually (but not always) low. How- ever, that doesn't alter the basic law of energy. These people eat more calories than they use. Until someone finds a way to circumvent the law of. conservation of energy, a calorie will still be a calorie. When that law is circumvented, look carefully to the west in the morning, you may see the sun rising in the west after all.

HUNTER Each distinct letter in this addition stands for a particular but different digit. It could be bad news for someone, but you'll find it easy enough to get your CHOW. NOW NOW N O CHOW Thanks for an idea to R. K. Burton, Waco, Texas. (Answer tomorrow) OFF TO MOSCOW MIAMI (AP) Armed Forces Minister Raul Castro of Cuba has left Havana for Moscow for an unofficial visit, Havana radio said. Castro, younger brother of Premier Fidel Castro, will travel to Czechoslovakia after visiting the Soviet Union. WEDNESDAY, FEB. 20 Your birthday today: You must iall back on your own resources this year. If you receive benefits from others, do everything you can to continue the setup, while making the fullest use of your ingenuity and the material you have to work with. Relationships run a little thin as you have much to do, some challenge to meet, all of which leaves less time than you'd like. Today's natives are versatile, capable of original thinking. ARIES (March 21 April Slow down for social pleasures, paying little attention to wild stories, rumors. Much neglected work can be quietly picked up and disposed of today. TAURUS (April 20 May Continue along the lines of late yesterday, and improve on them a little. You have better perspective tomorrow and can make innovations then., GEMINI (May 21 June Monitor your facts and figures as you go what you have must be incomplete at best, so assume nothing until the full story comes in later. CANCER (June 21 July Important moves, particularly financial shuffling, are better postponed for further study, investigation. You have planty to keep you busy, anyway. LEO (July 23 Aug. Letting well enough alone is a good enough maxim for the day. The well-tried methods of the past continue producing if you will but work at them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Your questions tend more to hinder your search for details than they help. Listen carefully, keeping your nose out of the conversation, and learn more. _ LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. It is time for you to teach something of what you know, especially to the young and to co-workers. Concentration on details pays off handsomely. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Complete old projects in preference to new ones. In the process, your friends can well be left out; they all have other irons in the fire, anyway. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 Dec. Study of the performance of others turns out very profitable or satisfying today. The less you translate your schemes into immediate action the better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Quiet maneuvering finds you uncovering unsuspected and very useful information. You haven't got the kind of energy on tap for a big campaign. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Don't wait for associates to get moving. Start with things you can attend singlehanded with no great effort; get a lot of little chores done. PISCES (Feb. 18 March Use the relative calm of the day to proceed on well- tested lines of action. What worked before should be tried again with no major changes. 1974, The Chicago Tribune 5UT SHE STILL HASN'T LEARNEPTO AVOID TH05E 0ET1WAMUT THOSE HOLES IN THE ROAR, by o'ned THE EATIN5 fORWKKS THAT SETS ISNT THAT THe euesfsr >ou ve EVER SEEN 7 MIND LOIS WHAT DOES TUESDAY LOOK LIKE I'M VERY BUSY NOW. DITTO HAVE TO LOOK IT UP YOURSELF DAD, WHAT TIME DOES 3 The bidding: West North East Smith 1 O Pass Pass 2 S? Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of 0. Today's declarer had no side suit of his own to devel- op. so he embarrassed the opposition by establishing Iheirs. In the pass-out posi- tion, Souih's jump bid of two hearts is not forcing. His hand was too good offensive- ly to balance with one heart, for that might sound 4o his partner as if he were simply competing for the part score and did not have much of a hand. North gave full weight to his prime controls when he raised to game. West led the king of dia- monds and shifted to the queen of clubs. Tho this de- fense was the best available at trick two. West's choice of card conveyed a lot of information to declarer. East was now marked with the king of clubs, and since he had failed to respond to his partner's opening bid, he could not hold the king of spades as well. Thus, the spade finesse was doomed to failure, and there were only nine tricks in sight. The black suits offered no glimmer of developing a tenth trick, so declarer had to turn to diamonds as his only chance. He won the ace of clubs and made a key loser-on-loser play when' he led the ten of diamonds from dummy, and discarded a club from his hand as West won the jack. West could do no better than lead another club. De- c 1 a r e r ruffed, drew two rounds of trumps, ending in dummy, and led the nine of diamonds. Again he refused to ruff, instead discarding a spade. West was helpless. He was forced to win the ace of diamonds. Dummy's eight of diamonds was now set up as a winner, and de- clarer's spade holding could not be attacked, for West would be leading into the ace -queen tenace. When West elected to play another club, declarer ruffed, en- tered dummy with a trump and discarded the queen of spades on the established di- amond. All declarer tost were three diamond tricks! FLIGHT OF AN EAGLE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Diane Hord, age 12, of Houston, Texas, for her ques- tion: How does an eagle teach her young to fly? The lordly eagles are birds of prey and without them the wilds would be over-run with ratty rodents. Most of them patrol vast territories and some have wings that spread more than seven feet wide. Their family life is a model of excellence, even in the bird world, which teems with excellent parents. The flight of an eagle lifts your heart high above the patchy green and brown takes it soaring for miles and mjiles. Our favorite species is the white-headed American eagle, commonly called the bald eagle, that once ranged over most of our, continent. The faithful parents mate for life and use the same nest year after year, sometimes through several generations. Female birds of prey are larger than the males and the wings of the female American eagle may span almost seven feet. But the large lady is not too proud to share her family duties with her mate. Both parents incubate the eggs, feed the youngsters and teach them what eaglets must know to survive. The nest is near a stretch of water, where these big birds fish for their favorite food. It is a huge pile of sticks and vegetation usually perched in the fork of a tall tree, often 80 feet above the ground. As a rule, there are two pale blue eggs, less than three inches long which is rather small for such a big mother bird. The precious eggs do not hatch for a month to six weeks, during which time the handsome parents take turns at sitting on the nest The newly batched eaglets nave big fluffy heads and coats of soft white down. Now the devoted parents toil to bring them morsels of food. The parents tease and coax the young eaglets to stretch and reach for their food. The all important flying instruction begins long before the young wings are ready for flight. It is based on a system of rewards and punishments small punishments for inattention and large rewards for success. What seems to be a wrestling game between a parent and a bulky eaglet actually is pre-flight instruction. The youngsters are pushed, prodded and shaken to encourage them to perch securely while exercising their frantically flapping wings. This instruction lasts several months. As the young wings grow stronger, the parents play rougher and tougher games. They tease the eaglets to reach farther for their food. They coax them to the edge of the nest. And finally the big birds dangle tasty morsels a few feet away from the nest. The eaglets must take a few daring flaps in the air or go hungry. So, almost without knowing it, the young birds are coaxed to take their first .flights. Throughout the Northern Hemisphere, the best known eagle is the great golden eagle. In ancient times, he was elected the King of Birds. Golden eagles also mate for life and spend most of the year tending and teaching their offspring. Some observers say that he shares the incubating, others say that he feeds the female while she sits on the eggs. In any case, both parents toil to feed their eaglets. And both play rough wrestling games designed to teach the young ones to fly. MR. LE6ALEASLE WILL SEE YOU NOW!
