Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -1 nc UC i n0niWE Ask Andy SEAS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Chris age of St. for his question. Why is the Red Sea Our Great Lakes total more than half the area of the Red so compared with the world's major it is not a giant. it has a dramatic history that dates back through thousands of years What's in the near future the famous reddish-tinged waterway will start on a new and very busy career. The Red Sea is a long narrow arm of salt water leading from the Indian Ocean Detween Africa and the Arabian Peninsula Several things happen to add a reddish unge to its waters. Sometimes there is a population explosion among its native red algae Sometimes the hot desert winds cover its surface with matches of reddish sand Sometimes it has an abundance of reddish seaweeds and often the shiny surface mirrors the reds from the coral reefs and surrounding hills There seem to be plenty of -easons why there is a reddish tinge to the waters of the Red and also why at times it is redder than others Apparently this always was for it was called the Red Sea in Bible days. we are this arm of reddish water rolled back to let the Israelites escape from the Dursumg armies of Egypt The famous old sea lies at the eastern end of the near the regions where the first human civilizations got their start But its northern shore is cut off from the Mediterranean by a narrow strip of land This bothered the Pharaohs of ancient who wanted a waterway to sail ships from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea. In ancient the builders of the durable pyramids made several attempts to cut a canal across this narrow strip of land And several times they succeeded in linking their inland sea with the global ocean But in time their canals were neglected and desert winds filled them with sand. In modern the famous Suez Canal was dug to link the Red Sea with the Mediterranean For almost a ships had this shorter route to the Orient. No longer did they have to sail thousands of extra miles around the southern tip of Africa Then the Middle East became involved in conflicts and disputes The priceless canal was neglected and became useless some people have faith that this hot-tempered region can be calmed down enough faith to make plans to reopen the neglected canal More plans include some amazing improvements. Free trading ports may be established along the snores. The channels will be deeper to let through larger ships. If all goes the Red Sea may once again become one of the world's busiest waterways. Geologists tell us that this arm of red sea water fills a long deep crack in the earth's crust. Most likely it formed ages ago as the sea floors spread and the continents drifted apart It cuts through a hot desert region where the scorching sun evaporates causing the water to become saltier and saltier. Its dreary shores are lined with coral low sandy hills and high rocky ranges Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN Trikint East-West vulnerable. North deals. NORTH 10 32 V A Q 10 3 K 2 A Q 10 2 WEST EAST KQJ54 J1054 473 K964 SOUTH A87 J765 4 Q6 J 8 5 The North East South West Pass IV Pass 2V Pass 4V Pass Pass Pass Opening King Most players are familiar with the effectiveness of a holdup play at a. no trump contract. They do not always realize that this maneuver can produce similar results in suit play. North and South con- ducted a logical auction to reach a good heart game. 3nce North supported South's hand re- valued to almost a full opening bid. Since there was no point to South leaped directly to game. West led the king of spades on the theory aces were made to capture South won md drew trumps in two ending in his rhe jack of clubs was led and 111 passed. East won the king and was ungracious enough to return a. spade. West took two spade tncks and then shifted to a allowing East to score the ace tor a one-trick set. Observe what would have happened had South held up the ace of spades for one round. He would win the second draw trumps as before and run the jack of clubs. This would lose to East's but East is out of spades and has no way to get to West's hand so that his partner can cash a second spade trick. No matter what he he cannot prevent declarer from discarding his remaining spade loser on dummy's fourth club What if spades were to divide In that there would be no way for declarer to make his contract if the club finesse fails. Doesn't a holdup play run the risk of having the second spade ruffed by if the suit breaks but that happens letts than 7 times in whereas the 5-2 division occurs almost 31 percent of the time. a spade ruff would not in itself defeat the the club finesse would have to fail or the defenders would have to be able to negotiate a second spade ruff. All these mathematical probabilities show is that declarer gives himself a far better chance of making his contract if he isn't quite so quick to grab the ace of spades.

The Chicago Tribune Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band has high blood pressure which is inherited Everyone in his family has it. My problem he goes to a doctor who doesn't weigh him or put him on any kind of a diet He has been going to him for the past 15 years and keeps putting on weight He's five- feet-nine and weighs about 200 He has a lot of indigestion and keeps chewing pills for gas. He fries his eggs in a pan of oil He can't drink tea or Sanka because they all bother and now he's on cocoa because so far this hasn't bothered him. I told him cocoa isn't good for him I am very patient with him. We've been married 28 years and have had a happy but I worry about what he's doing to himself I keep asking him to change doctors and he won't Shouldn't he be going to a specialist7 I'm sure he might live longer than but I would like you to tell me if I'm wrong in worrying. He's been on pressure medication all these years Dear Reader Obesity is harmful to patients with high blood pressure Even if it is inherited it still needs to be treated You don't neglect to treat diabetes just because you have inherited it. The same applies to high blood pressure. The evidence strongly suggests that about half of the cases of moderately elevated blood pressure can be controlled adequately with proper weight control That means getting rid of all the fat. Some doctors give knowing a patient will not follow a diet and will continue to fry eggs swimming in oil and ignore every bit of diet ad- vice given. the doctor does what he can with a patient who won't and uses medicine to help relieve the problem I think all moderate cases of high blood pressure should first be treated by eliminating any ex- cess fat the patient has. If the high blood pressure persists then it is time to use medicines. A lot of your husband's in- digestion may be related to his bad dietary program Overeating leads to and indigestion it is true that cocoa contains caffeine which may not be good for the in- digestion problem It also con- tains plenty of calories It does sound like your hus- band needs help in the diet department. Can't you do it for him9 One sure way to avoid those eggs swimming in oil would be for you to fix his breakfast for him. Give him a low-cholesterol breakfast to start the day with Then plan the rest of his meals so that they are satisfy- ing but not loaded with calories. The wife often makes the difference in whether a husband is successful or not on a diet. I can't cover all the points but you could plan a low- low-cholesterol meal program for your husband by using the recipes and food tables in my You Need to Know About Food and Cooking for B25 Madison New You didn't say what your husband's blood pressure is with his present treatment plan. If it is well controlled then his remaining problem is that diet which you could help with He could ask his doctor to refer him to a heart specialist After he has had the benefit of the specialist's advice he could return to his family doctor if he wishes and all the recommendations of the specialist would be given to the referring family doctor.
