Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 10, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Doctor treats heart ailment Dear Dr. Lamb I am ter- ribly depressed because I've been told by my doctor that nothing can be done for my heart attacks caused by ather- osclerosis. I can hardly believe this. I was hospitalized last year for about three weeks and given all kinds of tests, then about two months later I had another attack. The first one occurred in Bible class and the second one in church. I didn't have any undue excitement of any kind previous to either at- tack. What is your opinion, doc- tor? 'I've been on some medicine for high blood pressure, and also Coumadin to keep my blood from dotting. I have blood tests and checkups regularly. The doctor said on my last ex- amination that my blood tests, blood pressure and electrocar- diogram were all satisfactory, but I'm afraid to move for fear I'll have another heart attack. Dear Reader Your doctor is doing something about your heart attacks. This is what the medicine to treat your blood pressure and the Coumadin to prevent blood coagulation is for. He's studying the function of your heart and circulatory system to regulate your medi- cine and, if necessary, institute other measures. I'm sure that what your doc- tor tried to explain to you was that the disease itself, the ath- erosclerosis, was difficult to treat, and the damage that had already been done to your heart Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER Each distinct letter in this addition stands for a particular but different digit. A hint. What are the possi- ble values for the letter 0 here? And then what about the A? So get our GOLD. Air. Hunter answers all let- ters: ideas welcomed. Yesterday's answer: Bob 46 years old. Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON from the previous attack was there to stay. This doesn't mean, however, that you can't make a good recovery or that there is nothing at all that can be done to help you maintain your health in the best condi- tion. Your diet is important. If you have any excess weight, it can be eliminated by a sensible program. You should be on a moderately restricted fat diet, restricted in saturate fats and limited in cholesterol. By pro- per diet, often you can reverse the fatty deposits that develop in the arteries. This has been demonstrated in animals. You can't eliminate the scar in the heart muscle or some of the scarring that develops in the arteries when they've been damaged from fatty deposits, or the calcium deposits that gradually develop around where the fatty deposits are in the walls of the arteries. But, I would like to stress that there are things which can be done. Anyone with a severe car- diac problem is usually able to do more if the body weight is decreased. It's very simple. The body must work harder to move 200 pounds across the room than it does to move 100. This means there's less work for the heart and circulation to move a small body weight around. There are clher bene- ficial effects too. The blood prer sure is often significantly low- ered if a person has any ex- cess fat and eliminates it. It's important for people who've had a heart attack to be given some reassurance. Many people do make excel- lent recoveries. I know that it's common to sit around and worry about what may happen after an episode, but appreciat-' ing the fact that some benefits can be achieved, and that if you've recovered well enough to go home that you may well have a reasonably good out- look, should help to dispel the discouragement that some peo- ple have. I am personally im- pressed about how well some people do after they have made a complete recovery from the initial heart attack. As I've mentioned before, both Presi- dent Johnson and President Eisenhower are good examples of this point. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on cholester- ol, send 50 cents to the same address and ask "Choles- terol" booklet. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN O TM Tram North-South vulnerable South deals. NORTH EAST O8S432 4962 WEST OQJ10 OKS7C SOUTH AAKJ1075 OA 4AK3 The bidding: Sooth West Nortt East Pass 2 NT Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Queen of O South had a close decision whether to rebid three spades or four spades. The former would not be 100 pet North has the op- tion to pass with a virtual bust. However, as any one of three queens and several other possibilities would vir- tually guarantee game, South decided to take the strain off his partner. When this deal came up in a recent team match, the result more than accounted for the difference between the two teams. At both ta- bles the final contract was four spades, and in each ease the opening lead was the queen of diamonds. Yet at one table the contract was defeated for 190 points to East-West, while at the other North-South scored 620 for making four spades. At the first table, the un- successful declarer won the opening lead in his hand and entered dummy by leading a trump to the nine. The six of hearts was led and the jack was finessed, losing to the queen. West returned a trump, taken by dummy's queen. A heart was led to the king and ace, and West removed dummy's last trump. Declarer still had to surrender a heart and t club trick for down one. At the other table, the de- clarer realized that be could afford to lose two heart tricks and a club. According- ly, he wasted no time in leading a tow heart from his band at trick two. West won and returned a trump, but declarer was in control He won in dummy with the nine and ted a heart to the jack and queen. West played an- other trump. Declarer won, and there was still a trump in dummy to take care of declarer's third heart True, the unsuccessful de- clarer was most unlucky to find both heart honors and three trumps with West He had more than a 90 pet chance of landing his game. However, the successful de- clarer adopted a sure line, and the difference between 100 pet and 90 pet UBS tune spelled the difference be- .-ween victory and defeat WEDNESDAY, JULY 11 Your birthday today: Is marked by excitement, novel exploits, important changes, and opportunity.

BlONPIE-By Chic Young uui IIIBUI i Ask Andy Cassowaries Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Peggy McKee, age 13, of Charlotte, N.C., for her queestion: What are cassowaries? When at home, the casso- wary is a shy bird living in the secluded thickets of a trop- ical rain forest. But when an- noyed by visitors, he becomes the most dangerous bird in the world. He is one of those tall, bulky birds called ratites, and the rati.tes are too heavy to fly. You might mistake bun for an ostrich with stringy black plumage, plus other odd fea- tures. The cassowary is armed like a warrior and fights like a karate expert. The cassowaries resemble the ostriches and the rhea birds, though they are not re- lated. There are three species, classed in the family Casu- ariidae. and all of them are at home, on the far side of the globe. They live in the dense tropical jungles of New Guinea, on several nearby islands and in the northeast comer of Queensland, Australia. In spite of their fierce repu- tations, the cassowaries are not meat-eating hunters. They dine mainly on vegetable food, and prefer to keep out of sight. Most of the tune they conceal themselves in dense jungle thickets. During the early mornings and evenings, small groups of the big birds forage for nuts and fruit and perhaps insects. Cassowaries have three-toed feet armed with huge and deadly claws. On then- long naked necks they wear a va- riety of vivid patches selected from reds, blues, greens, yel- lows and purples. Their heads are armor-plated with bony helmets or high casques. Then- bulky bodies are covered with droopy black plumage. The largest cassowary weighs 120 pounds and stands almost six feet tall He wears a high, razor-sharp casque on his head. Like an his kinfolk he is a strong athlete. With his bead held down and his small wings extended, be can cut his way through tangled under- brush at 30 miles an hour. In the open, he can run faster. He also can swim across streams and leap over ob- stacles six feet high. The female is larger, but the male cassoway does not trust her to tend the children. The leafy nest is at the base of a tree and the greenish eggs are five inches long. The mother bird lays three to six eggs in June, July or August Then she is exiled for seven weeks. Dur- ing this period, the bossy father sits on the nest He later tends the perky little striped chicks. All goes well unless some- body threatens the casso- wary's privacy. When in- truders arrive the devoted father runs away, trying to distract attention from the previous nest. When cornered, any cassowary fights with1 deadly -fury. The beak and hard crest may be used to jab and stab. But the main attack is kicking. Each blow is back- ed up by mighty muscles, and the well aimed claws slash long deep gashes. A bout with a cassowary can be fatal, even to a grown man. Andy sends a seven vol- ume set of The Chronicles of Narnia to Paul Mense, ase 10, of St. Bruno, Quebec, for his question: Is the ivory-billed woodpecker already extinct? Early in the century, our two largest and most beautiful woodpeckers seemed doomed to extinction. Loggers were clearing their native forests. One of the threatened suedes was the pileated woodpecker, a 19 inch black-and-white bird with a vivid scarlet crest. How- ever, he has managed to vive in both the U.S. and ada, where ner forests are re- placing those that were strip- ped. The larger ivory-billed wood- pecker was not so lucky. He depended on the big old trees that grew in pine and swamp forests around the Mississippi. In 1942, the Audubon Society selected this bird for the first study of an endangered spe- cies. Time after tune, con- servationists pleaded to pre- serve his native forests. But during the 1950s no ivory bills were seen, and bird watchers gave up hope. Then during the 1960s a few sightings were claimed, though some experts suspect that these birds might have been pileated woodpeck- ers. Our best hope is that a few ivorybills still survive in swamp forests in Louisiana and eastern Texas no- body is certain. Questions by children HeraM readers sbraM be naOed te Ask Andy, P.O. Box 785.
