PISCES 19-March Bi: gcnlle lo those you love, a hit firmer toward those you don't. "Good fences make bet- ter neighbors" is a saying which serves well. (1972: By The Chicago Tribune) By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. "Dear Dr. Lamb I would like some information on sea- sickness. How does one know if this is caused by an inner ear problem or just a matter of getting used to sea travel or ship motion? I have experienc- ed the same motion sickness doing exercises. Is one medi- cine better than another for this? Also, is the continual use of such medicines as Marezine bad for one's system, let's say on a 30- to 45-day trip? Any information on this would be appreciated. I know many peo- ple suffer from Ihis and yet love to travel by sea. Dear Reader Motion sick- ness isn't confined lo sea tra- vel. Hypersensitive individuals may have similar problems dur- ing air travel or in an auto- mobile. Any exercises which cause excessive motion of the head, particularly some of the gadgets that induce swinging motion to the side or up and down, can cause this problem. Motion sickness is caused by the inner ear. We have three little circular canals inside each ear which serve as a balance mechanism. Literally, they measure the displacement of the head in any direction. When you're spinning around and around, these little canals per- ceive the movement and send a signal to the brain. If a per- son has poor tolerance to this, he will get motion sickness. This reaction occurs in most normal people if there is enough motion. You can he- come conditioned to motion so it is not quite so bad. This is what happens with a prolonged sea voyage. The main difficul- ty occurs the first few days because these sensitive bal- ance mechanisms are receiving a lot more simulus than usual. Afler the body adapts to this, there may be no significant diz- ziness. After a long sea voy- age, some individuals will de- velop motion sickness after they get on land. Tills is be- cause the stimulus is decreased. It's the change in the stimulus of motion that really causes the problem. The important thing about taking medicine for motion sickness is to take the medicine before the attack strikes and not after it has already hap- pened. In other words, the med- icine works better to prevent the problem than to cure it. For ail-plane trips and short periods, obviously, the medi- cine would be used before the trip and would usually solve the problem. For longer trips, one might need to take the medicine for the duration of the trip itself. For long sea voy- ages that you mentioned, I don't think you'd really need it except for the first several days. Marezine, which you nun- tioned. is one of the popular medicines used to prevent mo- tion sickness and is highly satis- factory. Dramimine and Bonine are similar medicines that are commonly used. If a person lakes a very large dose, he may nolice some drowsiness and dryness of the mouth. These are lire principal com- plications. These medicines have been shown to have some adverse effects on a develop ing fetus in animals when given in large doses far above Ihe level commonly used to pre- vent motion sickness. Never- theless, it would be wise for a pregnant woman to be sure to check with her obslrctician before she lakes any of Ihese medicines that might be avail- able to her. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

This hand does not measure up lo Ihe reijulrcnrnts New nesfs every year Andy sends o complete 20- volumc set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Mary Margaret Echonliardl, age 12, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for her queslion: Do V.TCUS return to the same liests? Certain wrens trust us enough to nest in a man-made bird house, close to a human habi- tation. These are the bold lillle house wrens and somelimes Ihe same family may return lo occupy Ihe same apartment. However, wrens MM new nests every season. 1 n fact, Ihcy rather outdo themselves. The male bird partially con- structs several nests. The fe- male selects Ihe sh-uclure and location she prefers and adds Hie finishing touches to the project. Norlh America is lucky to have a dozen or so wren spe- cies and subspecies. All of Ihem are charming small birds and most of them can sing dc- lighlful songs. Though most of them are shy of people, they are rated among our friendly allies in the world of nature. For the wrens consume hordes of destructive caterpillars, beetles and other insect pests in our fields and gardens. In the fall, most of them mi- grate to regions around the Gulf of Mexico or to Southern California and a few species travel as far south as Mexico. Several Southland species are permanent residents. Another year round resident has a very wide range, extending north of Pittsburgh. He is the Carolina wren, who wears a long white streak above each eye and lives a secretive life in swamps and wild woodlands. Here, there and almost every- where, the friendliest species is the sassy little house wren. But come fall, he departs for regions around the Gulf Mexi- co and perhaps even farther south. In summer, the house wren's nesting range extends through most of the United Slates to their old neighborhood. Some occupy suitable bird houses, others nest in tree holes near human homes. The male house wren arrives first and slakes his claim lo several nesting sites. With sticks and twigs he builds half a dozen or so sloppy structures in tree houses and other suitable sites around the neighborhood. When the female arrives about ten days later, she makes her selection. She may return to last year's site, or this may be taken by her grown children or by other local wrens- In any case, the male bird's sloppy work will not do. She demol- ishes it and builds a firm nest of Iwigs and grasses, lined with soft feathers. She may add a domed roof and a side entrance. Though the parents may return to the very same site, Mrs. Wren builds or rebuilds a new nest. f The eggs of the house wren Ere speckled with pmks and browns and there may be six, eight or even ten of them. In 12 to 14 days they hatch and the nest is crowded. The dark fuzzy chicks open their big yel- low mouths and the parents stuff insects down their hungry throats. The noisy family does a lot of chattering. And some- times the male bird bursts into a bubbling song, punctuat- ed with stammers and lyrical trills. Like most of his cou- sins, the house wren is a tal- ented singer. PICKUP Questions D.I cnfiaten of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andj, P.O. Box 755, HuntinglOD Beach. California 92648.
