Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thuridty, January 16, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am a weight watcher and have had my weight down for three years. I weigh 110 pounds and used to weigh 200. I am very interested in calories. You always say a calorie is a calorie, so why do some diets say you can eat all you want to of cucumbers, cabbage, radishes and so on? Please let me know if you have to count them, as I would eat much more of them if they didn't have to be controlled. Dear Reader Many diets just disregard these items thinking they don't contribute much to the total calorie in- take. The few calories they do contain, though, have to be added to the daily intake. The U.S. Department of Agriculture tables list one pared cucumber weighing seven ounces as 30 calories. Not very many people would eat. a lot of cucumbers eyery day. Except for those few people who have to watch every calorie, you can just about ig- nore these food items (cucumbers, lettuce, but when eyery calorie does make the difference in a successful diet program, then they have to be considered. Of course, if you would walk an extra mile each day you could eat almost two cucumbers and still not affect your calorie balance. Dear Dr. Lamb I have split and peeling fingernails. I have asked doctors about it and never get an answer as to its cause. I've tried gelatin to no avail. I try to keep nail polish on them to protect even wear gloves. I'm 52 and have never had good nails. In the last eight years they have been so bad they peel back in layers, that, of course, keeps the ends soft and ragged. I eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. I do not care for milk, but do eat milk products, cheese and cottage cheese. Dear Reader Most people who have nail problems will not get any benefit from drinking gelatin mixtures. Gelatin- is a protein and has only part of the essential amino acids the body needs. I suppose if a person were deficient in the amount of pro- tein in the diet it might do some good, but in our society protein deficiency is not very common. particularly, are apt to have iron and calcium deficiencies that contribute to poor nails, the iron- deficiency may show up with an anemia or even with dif- ficulty in swallowing .and various digestive complaints. Any common all-purpose daily vitamin pill with iron should satisfy the need for iron ex- cept in the presence of medical problems. Calcium deficiencies are widespread because people don't use milk or milk products. Cottage cheese is a good source of calcium, but if that is your main source I wonder if you really use enough every day to r, your calcium needs. If ,ou don't like to drink milk you might find ways to use it in cooking. You can use the dry milk powder in cooking and increase the calcium intake. Desserts are often given a bad press because they are sweet. A dessert can be good for you if made with sufficient amounts of milk containing protein and calcium. It is what is in the dessert that counts, not just whether it is sweet or not. Finally, some women benefit from using one of the nail 'polish preparations intended to harden and cover or protect the nails. These preparations work better than ordinary nail polish.

For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Balanced Diet" booklet.

Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF Neither vulnerable. East deals. NORTH 4J1086 AK863 4K8 WEST EAST VQJ7654 QJ9742 4QJ42 4109763 SOUTH 4AKQ94 VAK1093 4A5 The bidding: South Weit North Pus 1 Pass 3 4 4 Pass 4 Pus -4 V Pass 5 4 Puss 5 V Pass 6 Pass 7 Pass Pus Pass Opening lead: Queen of The choice of an opening lead can make a tremendous difference to the outcome of a bridge hand. At times the difference can be dramatic, such as when a particular opening lead causes immed- iate defeat of the contract. At others, the result is not immediately apparent. Con- sider this deal from the Mixed Pairs Championship at the recent ACBL Fall Nationals. Seven spades was a fairly popular contract, reached on an auction such as the above. After North jump raised his partner's suit, both players cue-bid their controls, and South leaped to seven spades because of the quality LILABNER of his suit. At most tables, West led the queen of diamonds, and the grand slam could be made via a dummy reversal. After winning the king of diamonds, declarer ruffs a diamond with a high trump, enters dummy with the four of trumps to the eight, and ruffs another diamond high. Dummy is reentered by overtaking the nine of trumps and the last low dia- mond is ruffed with de- clarer's remaining trump honor. All that remains is to enter dummy with the king of clubs, draw the outstand- ing trump and claim the con- tract. When Mildred Kielpinski of Amarillo, Texas, held the West cards, she attacked with a trump. This lead seemed innocuous enough, but it made all the difference, in the world. It used up an entry to dummy before de- clarer could put it to con- structive use. To ruff three losing diamonds, declarer had to use two trump entries and the king of clubs. However, he now had no quick entry to dummy to draw West's remaining trump. The only possibility was to get there with a heart ruff. This would have been easily accomplished had West held two hearts, but West ruffed the first heart for down one. 'Of course, declarer can make the hand if he knows the distribution. He can play East for both missing heart honors, and get home by drawing three rounds of trumps and then taking re- peat finesses in hearts. LIGHTNING Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to" Larry Pungman, age 11, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for his question: Why is there no lightning in the winter? Lightning comes with tor- nados and howling hurricanes. But most of it is created in or- dinary thunderstorms. In coastal regions these storms tend to build up on sultry summer days. In other regions they occur on summer nights or on winter nights. Weather experts tell us that there are reasons why this is so. During an average day, about thunderstorms occur in various places around the globe. Right now, perhaps flashes of lightning are piercing the clouds. AH of these dramatic weather events are caused by similar conditions in the atmosphere. These thunderstorm con- ditions tend to build up at different seasons in different parts of the world. The scene .is set when the air aloft is quite a bit cooler than the air at ground level. Meteorologists call the special situation a steep temperature gradient. When it occurs, the temperature between the ground and several miles aloft decreases at a steady rate. This particular weather pattern also creates certain variations in air pressure. But the temperatures gradient plays the major role in building a thunderstorm. This may occur in winter or summer. In summer, lofty sea breezes often cool the air high above the scorching ground. This creates the temperature gradient that builds up thunder and lightning on summer afternoons. In the middle of our con- tinent, there are no cool daytime breezes to cool the air high above the hot ground. However, after sunset, heat escapes from the upper air level, while the surface stays hot. A steep temperature gradient builds up and stormy lightning occurs around midnight, Over the oceans, most thunder and lightning storms occur on winter nights. This Is because the seas warm up and cool off more slowly than the land. In winter, the water warms the lower air but the upper air becomes very chilly, especially after dark. The difference between the lower and upper air temperatures may be 30 degrees or more. In summer, the ground level may be 90 and the upper level 40" degrees. In winter over the sea, the lower level may be a coolish 50 and the upper level way below freezing. Either of these conditions can whip up a thunderhead.
