Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD WrtiWldiy, January 29, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I've just come off a successful diet, go- ing down to 170 pounds. I'm 40, five feet six, stocky build and a college professor, which makes me somewhat seden- tary in habits. I've read your 'book on fitness and follow your exer- cise routines. I use a stationary bicycle each night to help out about 60 minutes or so. I do extensive exercises for my abdomen. What is the relation between breathing and exer- cise? At what point in the ex- ercise is it best to breathe in and out? When, after a meal, it best to exercise? Also, what is the biochemistry involved here? Does one increase the usage of calories if he exer- cises right before a meal? What self tests can one app- ly to determine the success of abdominal exercises? I've been at this for more than a year, doing most of your exer- cises. I have extensive fat around my waist and do not seem to be getting rid of it. On the basis of my descrip- tion would you say that a daily intake of to calories should stabilize my weight once I get to 160 pounds? Dear Reader You may have still more weight to lose than you realize. I don't think it makes much difference when you breathe during your exercises. Whatever is comfortable for you is all that matters. For weight training, it is usually recommended that you breathe in during the lift and out while returning the weight to the starting position. You should avoid holding your breath in deep inspiration as you might do during a chin-up. Breath holding can trigger powerful reflexes that lead to fainting or collapse in some people. You should also avoid overbreathing or breathing too fast. This induces chemical changes in the body that also lead to faintness. Exercise before a meal if you are doing strenuous exer- cise. This is particularly true for heart patients, since diges- tion alone increases the work of the heart. Fatty foods increase the clumping tendency of the blood and decrease optimal circulatory function. Wait at least two hours after a fairly adequate meal before exercising vigorously. A good walk after a meal, in healthy people, is no strain and is often helpful. Healthy people don't need to sit or lie down for long periods after eating. You will use the same number of calories with the same task whether it is before or after the meal. The best test for abdominal fat is your waistline and the amount of fat under the skin. You can tighten up your ab- domen with exercise but exer- cise won't eliminate ab- dominal fat. Abdominal fat means you still have a lot of excess fat to lose, and that means more calorie restriction and con- tinued exercise routines. For more information write to me at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019, and ask for the booklet on weight loss. Send SO cents to cover costs. You'll have to judge yourself how many calories you need after you have eliminated all the significant fat deposits under the skin. In general eat only enough to control your weight and still have an adequate supply of energy. If you are reasonably active I would hope that might be at least calories a day for you.

The bridge stars of yesteryear no longer find it easy to win major championships. Though a number of the great players of the 'forties and 'fifties are stitl active, they frequently have to bow the knee to the crop of young experts that has come to the fore in recent years. We have been most im- pressed by the play of a 31- year-old New Yorker, Peter Weichscl. He was a member of the team that was narrow- ly beaten in the final of the playoff to select the team that represented North America in the 1975 World Team Championship. Watch his technique on this hand from that event. With such an abundance of defensive values, -South's choice of four spades as his overcall is open to debate. The more normal course would be to double first and then bid four spades at his next turn, so that his partner could judge the situation more accurately if the op- ponents competed to the five-level. West led the king of hearts, ruffed by declarer. Faced with a sure loser in diamonds, Weichsel's prob- lem was to hold his club losers to two. Even if he successfully finessed East for the queen, declarer would still need to ruff a club in dummy. However, there was only one entry to the jack of spades- and if declarer used this to take the club finesse, West could return a trump after winning the ace of clubs, thus removing dummy's last trump. The alternative play of leading the king of dia- monds to force a later entry to dummy with the queen of diamonds was no defenders would still have two opportunities to lead trumps to prevent a club ruff. Weichsel found an elegant solution. At trick two, he led his low diamond! The de- fenders had no counter. If West ducked, dummy's queen would be an entry for the club finesse and declarer would have time to ruff a club. But going up with the ace of diamonds and shifting to a trump proved no better. Declarer won in his hand, cashed the king of diamonds, and crossed to the jack of spades. After discarding a club on the queen of dia- monds, he took the club finesse for his contract.

Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Kathra Bostick, age 13, of Sarasota, Fla., for her ques- tion: Is the Gorilla an Ape? Yes he is. Of the 200 or so members of the monkey clan, only four are classed as apes. The gorilla is the biggest and also the strongest of this highly sophisticated group. A grown male may be as tall as a tallish man and twice as heavy. He looks somewhat like a hair-raising nightmare, though usually he is a peaceable person. The clever monkeys, large and small, are classed as primates because, from our point of view, they seem to be the most advanced members of the animal kingdom. The gibbon and the gorilla, the orangutan and the chim- panzee are called anthropoid, or manlike, apes. From our point of view they are the most advanced of the advanc- ed primates. The great apes have extra- long arms, clever hands and feet and no tails. They live in tropical forests, feeding main- ly on fruits and tender greenery. The skinny gibbon walks upright with his arms held high above his head. The others use the knuckles of their hands to walk around on all fours. The gorilla belongs to the tropical jungles of Africa. He is a big, black, hairy fellow with an enormous chest. A large male may stand six feet and weigh 450 pounds. His skull has a bony crest, which gives the appearance of a very high forehead. The hair on his back is streaked with white. His huge, scowling face, with those glaring eyes and that wide toothy mouth would never win a beauty contest. What's more, when threatened, he advances with blood-curdling yells, thump- ing his chest. This nightmare appearance is enough to scare away his fiercest foe. However, almost always this fearsome display is mere- ly for show. Actually the mighty gorilla is a very peaceable fellow who prefers to ignore the rough stuff. His only serious enemy is man the hunter, and the only thing that really scares him is water which he abhors. The average gorilla family includes an adult male, several smaller females and their growing children. They share several miles of territory, though other gorilla families may visit and mingle for a while. So far as we know, the fierce looking males never fight each other and rarely if ever get into serious fights with other animals. MkMl by chil- dren of Hirald thould tw milled to Aik Andy, P.O. Box.
