LAMB, M. D. Doctor's opinion on 'French Kiss' By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. 1 would like some advice on a subject in which I am sure a lot of leen-age girls are interested. As a doctor how do you feel about "French kissing" The germs and so forth. Dear Reader I would sus- pect that a lot of people feel that the "and so forth" would outweigh the problem of the germs. Seriously, it really de- pends on whom you are being thusly Intimate wilh. We all have germs. They are on our hands, face, our skin, in our ears, rose every orifice of Uie body, Including the mouth. Fortunately, most of these germs which we all carry with us ere relatively harmless as far as causing disease. This isn't always true and I'll give you a sample unemotional ex- ample. A person who has a severe, sore, strep throat may well infect someone by person- al contact, kissing of any type, and even more likely so with French kissing. Colds and res- piratory infections when they present may easily be transmitted this way. In between Infections, the types of bacteria that are in the mouth that may be trans- mitted from one person to an- other may not be the kind that would cause any disease. Now, of course, this is a generaliza- tion and there are conditions in which germs in the mouth can be transmitted from one per- son to the other and cause dis- ease. It is obviously one good way of transmitting syplu'lis, since (lie germ of syphilis has to remain in a moist environ- ment and moist saliva provides such a moist vehicle for pass- ing the germ from one person to another. All of us learn to live In peace (most of the time) wilh our germs. When two people with different germs come in close contact new germs are exchanged and the body some- times reacts adversely until a new peaceful co-existent situa- tion is developed. Studies of the germs each person had be- fore entering a simulated space chamber and what each per- son had when he came oul showed that all team members came out with the same germs in common. I doubt very much that any really good studies on French kissing in relationship lo trans- mitting syphilis iiave ever been done, possibly because French kissing often goes along with other activities. I suppose most of the time it is reasonably safe. When it is not, it usually involves transmission of respir- atory infections like the com- mon cold and at very infre- quent intervals something more serious can be transmitted. 1 suspect that the "and so forth" is still going to be the determ- ining factor.

The first cement Andy sends a complete 20- volumc sot of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Donald Maclsaac. age 8, of Niagara Falls, Ontario, for his ques- tion: When dill they start using cement? Cement is supposed to stick things together, and -ve have all kinds. We have different glues for cementing wood, paoer and plastic. But the cem- ent we use lo make sidewalks and is something verv soe- cial. It cements sands and gra. vels together to make sturdy slabs of concrete. We call il Portland cement. It was invent- ed about 150 years ago. Anc for the past 100 years of so builders have been using il In a big way. The verv first builder's cem- ent was dried mud. Ages ago, thev mLxed mud and water molded the pasle inlo bricks anc let the sun dry them hard Later they learned to bake I heir clay bricks in huge ovens. When time came lo build, Ihey used mortar to cement the, bricks together. As a rule, the mortar was a moist mixture ol lime and clay, some sand and pprhsos a few horse hairs lo bind it together. When it dried it cemented the bricks In fairly firm walls. About years ago, they needed a better cement to build a mighty lighthouse, strong enough to withstand the surging seas off the shores of England. They made it by baking limy ingredients and chomping Ihe chunks to powder. It was called Roman cement. When mixed with water It formed very strong mortar. But a brick layer named Joseph Aspdjn longed for a still better mortar to cement his bricks together. Joseph took pride in his work. He also must have been a sensible person because he studied how the earth cements sands and gravels lo make enormous slabs o[ hard rock. About 150 years ago, he tried lo copy nature's recipe. He smashed limestone and other Begins hunger strike TORONTO (CP) Alan McGinn, 43, secretary and gen- eral manager oE the Society for Animals in Distress, began a hunger strike Monday to protest the use of carbon dioxide in the borough of Scarborough to de- stroy unwanted pets. Mr. McGinn said in an inter- view he will fast outside the Scarborough municipal offices un-JI the borough uses barbitur- ate overdoses to destroy ani- He said that barbiturates are the onJy humane method and that animals struggle Tor life when carbon dioxide is adminsi- tered. "A cat can gasp for breath fnr 90 seconds if it isn't adequately chloroformed before it ij in the room lo die and a dog can struggle up Lo four min- utes for breath. 'It's a barbaric method.'1 Roy Arnold, I he Scarborough treasurer w h o recommended the carbon dioxide method ac- cepted by board of control, said the borough will continue to use it because "the animal feels no pain." "It Is unconscious right from the beginning." today's FUNNY TOEKY.A BREADWINNER ETJ IT SLICED EXTRA THIN earthy ingredients to frag- ments. Then he baked the mix- ture to form hard ground the chunks to powder. He moistened it and used it to cement his bricks. He tried many experiments. Then in 1024, he invented a cement that "was harder than nature's own recipe. He named it port- land cement because it remind- ed him of a sturdy building stons that came from a small Isle of Portland. This sturdy cement also could stick sand and gravel together in slabs of man made rock called concrete. In the 1830s, Joseph's Portland cement be- came popular in England. Sev- eral factories tried to copy it and in the 1880s, they were using 19 different recipes. About lOfl years ago, the build- ers of the United States and Canada began using their own Portland cements to make con- crete. But all those different recipes were a problem. So around 1916, the experts got together and de- cided that there should be only one standard recipe for making Portland cement. They listed the ingredients and described the steps to make it. Then peo- ple knew that they always could depend on it if they followed instructions. The pasty colored powder must be mixed with the right amounts of sand, gravel and wafer. When it dries, it is sure to form sturdy concrete suitable for building sidewalks and buildings, dams and bridges and dozens of other things. Andy sends ?10. to Richard Gawel, age 10, of Toronto, Ontario, for his question: What causes gravity? This is a problem of how and why which are two very dif- ferent things. Several genera- tions ago, Michael Farady fig- ured out how a generator can create electric current. We still don't know exactly why this happens. Way back in the 1600s, young Isaac Newton figured out precisely how gravity works. We still don't know exactly why it works as it does. numerous research teams have tried to find the answer to the same question that puzzles you. But at present, they cannot ex- plain exactly what causes gra- vity. However, we do know that this well behaved force is built into every speck of mat- ter. Every molecule of solids, liquids and gases has its min- uscule quota of built-in gravity. The quota increases when large amounts of matter are massed together. We also know precisely how it works. Be- cause centuries ago, a certain young genius figured out the laws that govern the force of gravity and slated them in simple terms that any young student can understand.
