Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 14, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD January 14, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Recently I read your article on cereal fiber combating diver- ticulosis. I developed a spastic colon last February. My doc- tor put me on a bland diet and Librax. After two months, my condition had only improved somewhat. He took me off whole milk, and now I am starting to see a real im- provement. I'm very confused at this time. I only started drinking a lot of milk a short time before my spastic colon problem started. I have never been much of a vegetable or salad eater, but I did include them in my meals several times a week. I really don't know what brought the condi- tion on. My doctor said I must stay on a bland diet, but I feel that you need roughage as you ex- plained. I'm 31 and would like to have a second child. I need to be on a correct diet now so I will maintain good health in the future. The type of diet suggested for people with colon problems is a subject of controversy among physicians. The end result is I'm confused about what to do. Any information or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Dear Reader There is lots of room for confusion. For years doctors have prescribed bland low residue diets for spastic or irritable colon. Work by a British suregon, since confirmed by many other doctors, strongly suggests that this was exactly the opposite of what most peo- ple in our highly civilized society really needed. This gave rise to the bulk diet concept, with particular emphasis on getting cereal fiber from whole wheat and whole cereal products as op- posed to refined flour. It has since been shown that vegetable fiber is also helpful. Whenever there is a drastic change in thinking like this, there will be a period before there is general agreement. Then there is always the ex- ceptional case that requires a different approach. Still the evidence is very good that the colon needs bulk and that means vegetable and cereal fiber in the diet. Intolerance to lactose, the double sugar in milk, is still a different problem. Many adults have this condition and it causes the same symptoms as a spastic colon: It is quickly and dramatically treated by simply stopping use of milk and all milk products. These people need another source of calcium. -Milk in- tolerance will cause digestive problems, even if your diet is otherwise nearly perfect and contains adequate bulk. That may have been your main problem. The milk problem here is the same whether you are using whole or skim milk. It is the double sugar and not the fat that is causing the problem. You may need a bowel training program. For more on this write to me at P.O. Box 1151, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on spastic colon. Send 50 cents to cover costs. You can always do some ex- perimentation on your own and find out. Stay off all milk and milk products, including cheese, buttermilk and foods that use lots of milk in preparation then see what happens. You can also try the foods with lots of bulk and see if that improves your condition. Also, stay away from coffee, tea, coias and other caffeinated beverages. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Jan. 14, 1975 Italian revolutionist Felice Orsini threw three bombs at the carriage of French Emperor Napoleon III 117 years ago in 1.858 killing three bystanders but leaving the emperor unharmed. Or- sini, who considered the emperor the chief obstacle to Italian independence from Austrian rule, made a death- cell appeal to him to take up the Italian cause. The country eventually achieved independence in 1871. 1875 Halifax Herald first appeared. 1911 Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen reached the Bay of Whales en route to the South Pole.

Texas, was won by two U.S. internationalists. Edgar Kaplan of New York and Norman Kay of Philadelphia. They came from behind with a 73% score in the final ses- sion to take the title. This hand played a major part in their victory., Kay, West, took advan- tage of the vulnerability to make a weak jump overcali in clubs. North's double was not for it was a Negative Double, used as a takeout for the unbid suits. When South took two bids without any further en- couragement from his part- ner, North judged his hand, worth a raise to slam. Six hearts was a reason- able contract, which under normal circumstances would on little more than the diamond finesse. On the actual lie of the cards, the slam stood no chance, as Kay and Kaplan were quick to demonstrate. Kay led the two of clubs, taken by Kaplan's king. Since this card could not have been a fourth-best lead in view of West's preempt in the suit, East read it as an usual lead, indicating that West had a strong preference for a particular suit to be re- turned. Therefore, Kaplan returned a lower of the remaining side suits. Declarer played low, and Kay's ruff beat the slam. Had the hand been dis- tributed differently so that West had a spade void, he would have been able to con: vey this message to partner by his choice of opening lead. In that event, West would lead the eight, or possibly the jack, of clubs. Since the first trick would reveal that the lead could have been from the top of a sequence, it would again have a suit pre- ference connotation, this time requesting a switch to the higher of the remain-, ing side suits, or spades.

WELL, I SEE YOU FINALLY ear AROUND TO SEWING THE BUTTON ON AAV COAT. Ask Andy ALLOY Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to John J. Holland III, age 11, of Santa Maria, Calif., for his question: What exactly is an alloy? An alloy is a mixture, usual- ly of two or more suitable metals, and our man made alloys are far superior to the metals found in nature. For example, natural gold is soft and tends to flake apart. When alloyed with small amounts of silver, it becomes harder and more durable without los- ing its golden gloss. Perhaps the first alloy was made by accident, when bits of copper and tin melted and fused together in a long ago campfire. When the mixture cooled, it formed a new and different metal, stronger than either copper or tin. It was the brownish alloy called bronze. The Bronze Age of human history began when mankind learned to repeat this happy accident to make superior tools and weapons. Most natural metals are too soft, too brittle or too prone to rust up under hard work. But when melted with small amounts of other materials, they form alloys with superior qualities. For ex- ample, our various steels are basically iron alloyed with carbon and magnesium. Traces of valadium, titanium and cobalt may be added to create the super tough steel alloys used to make heavy duty machine tools. Small amounts of chromium with perhaps nickel, molybdenum and silicon may be added to the basic iron alloy to create stainless steel. The list of possible alloys in endless, and each mixture has its own special qualities. All DESTROYED BY LIGHTNING Semele, daughter of Cad- mus, mother by Zeus of Dionysus, demanded Zeus appear before her in all his splendor and was destroyed by his lightning. this is possible because each is made of its own atoms or molecules, which are all alike. These invisibly small fragments are arranged in tiny grains or crystals. The crystals are arranged in formations, and the same pattern repeats throughout the entire structure. This holds the natural metal together, but under stress it tends to slip and dislocate along the cracks. However, when two or more metals are melted together, their crystals separate. As the alloyed mixture cools, the different crystals interlock and form more durable struc- tures. Hence a good alloy is harder, stronger and less breakable than its separate ingredients. Most alloys gain strength and rust resistance. However natural aluminum is rust resistant, though too soft for hard work. When alloyed with zinc, copper and magnesium it becomes stronger, though some of its rust resistance is lost. Quwtioni asked by chil- dren of Herald thould be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
