Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHDRIOGE HERALD Tueiday, January 21, Lawrence Lamb M.D. that Dr. Lamb After be- ing "treated" for a duodenal ulcer for nine years my doctor tells me my x-rays show no scarring from ulcers but 1 do have a hiatal hernia. Are they similar in symptoms and discomfort? Dear Reader You don't have to have a scar that you can see on an x-ray after you have had an ulcer. So the presence of a hiatal hernia now doesn't mean you may not have had an ulcer. Not everyone with a hiatal hernia has symptoms. Many people with hiatal hernias don't even know they have the problem. Most of the symp- toms are caused by the acid digestive juice in the stomach leaking or being squirted back into the lower esophagus. This acid juice can burn the lower esophagus and cause the burn- ing pain in the pit of the stomach just at the lower tip of the breastbone that patients complain about. The same acid digestive juice produced in excess quan- tity and squirted out into the duodenum can cause an ulcer there. So, in fact, the acid digestive juice can cause an ulcer in the duodenum, with burning and pain, or it can cause irritation and even an ulcer in the lower esophagus in relation to a hiatal hernia. Our bodies are not so good at presenting black and white and "either-or" situations. The pain and location of an irritated lower esophagus or the duodenum are not so specific that you can always be sure which is the problem or for that matter if both con- ditions are present at the same time. There is a lot you need to know about the management of a hiatal hernia. Small fre- quent meals are important, as well as what you eat, rules about clothing, sleeping, and exercise. Part of the treatment of both ulcers and hiatal hernia symptoms are the same. Since symptoms from both problems are largely caused by the acid digestive juice formed by the stomach, it is imported to neutralize stomach acid. The antacids used for this purpose work equally well for both con- ditions. Medicine is sometimes used to block the nerves to the stomach to prevent forming so much acid. These are very good for most cases of ulcers. Their use is questionable in the treatment of hiatal hernia symptoms. They may delay the emptying ,df the stomach allowing the stomach contents to leak back into the lower esophagus. Actually these medicines may not be all bad in hiatal hernia, if they effectively decrease the amount of acid- produced by the stomach, even if they do delay stomach emptying. The stomach itself is protected from the digestive action of its own juices by a thick mucus material over its lining. The duodenum and es- ophagus don't have this protection is why the acid digestive juices irritate or ulcerate them. For more information on these items write to me in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. and ask lor the booklet on hiatal hernia. Send 50 cents to cover costs.

Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Jan. 21, .1975 The Axis counter offensive in North Africa began 33 years ago in 1942 commanded by Field Marshall Rommel and speaheaded by his Afrika Korps. Tobruk, the key city, fell June 21 and El Alamein, within Egypt's borders, was reached July 1, where Rommel paused for two months. His attack at El Ala- mein failed and was followed Oct. 23 by the British attack which led to destruction of the Afrika Korps within seven months. ARIES (March 21-April Be somewhat skeptical while keeping a sense of humor. Much of today's trivia remains so only because it's taken lightly. Later hours bring sober thoughts. TAURUS (April 20-May Unless Well budgeted, money gets out of hand with little to show for it. Conversations run in convey emotional meanings unrelated to the words. GEMINI (May 21-June Visitors pop up when least ex- pected, or turn out other than anticipated. Their news is sur- prising although relatively un- important. Calmly treat today's changes as tem- porary. CANCER (June 21-July Complications attend any career effort. Teamwork en- counters minor snags. It's up to you to abstain from fault finding. Your luck improves suddenly at end of the day LEO (July 23-Aug. Select the smoother, more peaceful contacts for a begin- ning. Bring together all sides, a few at a time, for recon- ciliation. Expect no definite conclusions today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Try for tranquility despite ex- citement. Travel is favored, but should be planned around alternative routes as con- ditions are subject to abrupt change. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. The bright new idea is the thing this morning, but spend at least a day checking it out before you decide to apply it. There's more than one factor needing judgment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Amuse yourself, but not at the expense of others. Help those who are confused. Most schedules fail; the more com- plicated, the more in- convenient. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22r Dec. The spirit of adven- ture can lead you out of your regular pathways. No harm done if you've taken care of ordinary chores first. Home life is richer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Thrift is something you normally practice naturally. Today is not the day to overdo it. Get help, a second opinion, on any technical matter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Quietly keep your self control as everybody has a great deal to say about secrets that can't be kept much longer anyway. Family affairs become exceptionally busy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Communication includes much clamor, many extras that are confusi'ng. Concentrate on people who have told their stories well and straight before..

Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF S North-South vulnerable. West deals. NORTIT WEST EAST 4975 4AJ108 SOUTH The bidding: West North East South 1 Pass Pass Dble. Pass -Pass 2 DUe. Pass Pass Pass. Opening lead: Two of The 25th anniversary of the first Bermuda Bowl com- world bridge team be played in Bermuda the last week of January. For the first time in world championship play, screens will be used. The screens are placed diagonally across the table during the bidding so that each player can see only one of his opponents, but not his partner. They are re- moved after the opening lead has been made. Italy will again be de- fending the world title. How- ever, the team will be weakened by the absence of Pietro Forquet who, in his heyday, was considered by many to be the world's best player. The only member of the original Blue Team that first won the world championship in 1957 who will be on the 1975 team is Giorgio Belladonna. His p.-'.rtnership with Benito Garozzo, a member of the team since 1961. is one of the strongest in the history of bridge, and they will spear- head Italy's attempt to re- tain world bridge suprema- cy. When this hand was played in the 1974 Bermuda Bowl event, held in Venice, Belladonna and Garozzo sat East-West. After North's opening bid was passed round to him, Garozzo made a balancing double, and Belladonna converted it to penalties by passing. South sought to improve the con- tract, but ran into a double by West, followed by perfect defense. Garozzo led to the king, and Belladonna shifted to a low diamond. South could have saved a trick by playing .the eight, but he made the natural play of an honor. West covered and dummy's ace won. The king of spades lost to the ace, and another low diamond was led. Again Hhe eight would have salvaged a trick, but declarer won the queen and shifted to hearts. West rose with the ace and returned a heart to his partner's king. On the ten of diamonds West discarded a spade, and then overruffed the fourth dia- mond and returned a spade. When East later got on lead with the ace of trumps, he continued a third spade, and there was no way declarer could prevent West's jack of trumps from scoring a trick. That was down three, or points to Italy. PANGOLIN Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Todd Skinner, age 10, of Tulsa, Okla., for his question: What is a pangolin? The biggest pangolin looks for all the world like a walking pine cone 5 feet long. His smaller cousin often dangles from a bough by his tail like a scaly ball at the end of scaly rope. These remarkable animals live in faraway places, in parts of Africa and Asia. Scientists call him the scaly anteater. This is logical because he wears scales and feeds on ants. The Malays named him the pangolin, which in their language means the roller. This also is logical because when scared he rolls his long tapering body into a neat coil. He may be 5, 4, or 3 feet long, depending upon his species. But in any case, he is covered with scales like a pine cone. Large scales overlap down the length of his back and sides and also enfold his tail, which may be wide or ex- tra long and ropy. Smaller scales cover his narrow head and part of his pointed nose. More, even smaller scales reach down his stubby legs to the strong claws on his toes. Scales, as we know, are very popular with fishes and reptiles. But the pangolin is not related to these animals. He is classed with the furry mammals because a baby pangolin is fed on mother's milk. Actually, those pine cone scales are really plates made from special wads of hair and there are a few ordinary hairs on his scaleless tummy. A pangolin usually dozes through the day in a burrow. At night he comes out and uses his mighty claws to tear open the nests of ants and ter- mites. As the terrified insects scurry around, he gathers them up on his sticky tongue, which may be a foot long. He swallows them whole, for a pangolin has no teeth. Most of the pangolin cousins live in the trees, where they poke around for ants and ter- mites under the bark. Africa's giant pangolin lives on the ground, though he may climb a tree to escape trouble. Often he shuffles along on his sturdy back legs, leaning forward with his front legs dangling above the ground. In captivity pangolins never breed and seldom live very long. So we do not know much about their family lives. As a rule, the female bears one scaly baby. He feeds on mother's milk and rides around on her back.
