My parents have gained at least 150 pounds each in a year's time Their obesity is excused because of the hardships of menopause. They are not under a doctor's care. I'm wondering if they shouldn't even for a good diet My parents were always weight conscious and often what they ate A couple of years ago they could pass for my older brother and sister. Today they can easily pass for my grandparents My brothers accept all of this as the change of life cycle I've been away from the family for a few years and just returned to the United States after a two-year absence Am I the one overreacting to this new state of Dear Reader Even allowing for a little the weight gam you describe is really unnecessary Nothing makes a person look older faster than gainmg a lot of excess fat Obesity is directly related to medical for example vascular diseases Women do tend to gain weight with the but your father is not having a he is suffering Flashback 1818 The Red River region was hit by a swarm of grasshoppers 1925 Part I of Hitler's Mem Kampf was published 1945 Halifax was rocked by the explosion of a naval ammunition dump from obesity. A big factor in weight gain after 40 is a sudden decrease in the amount of calories the body uses at rest. That is often caused by a loss of muscle. We use a lot of energy at rest because muscles need energy even while we are sitting still. A heavy laborer uses more energy at rest than a fat man of the same weight. The loss of muscle is related to inactivity A great deal can be done to prevent this problem with regular daily not just walking but strengthening exercise also that maintains the size of the muscles a person should increase his physical activity as he gets older to avoid the middle-aged spread.

It is always a surprise to see one's parents age. When the change is rapid it is a shock With age you can expect the hair to get gray and a few wrinkles to but it is not necessary to lose your muscles or to gam fat. That is not but a result of living mostly unhealthy ones. Dr. Lamb welcomes questions from his but because of the volume of mail he cannot answer personally. Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. Write to Dr. Lamb in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

GOREN ChlUM Tnbiot East-West vulnerable East deals NORTH AQ5 9 8 5 4 3 63 WEST EAST 4K106 SOUTH A Q 10 2 V J42 Q J 7 2 A 4 The East South West North 1 Pass 1 NT Pass 2 V Pass Pass Pass Dble. Pass Pass Pass Opening Nine of 4 Fools rush in where angels fear to and bridge experts are hard on their heels. South had the technical skill to justify his1 venture into the unknown. There was a considerable amount of logic behind South's decision to enter the auction at the three-level on a four-card and a shoddy one at that. The opponents' auction had died at three indicating that North held some and had developed in a way that marked North with length in diamonds. In South's ace-queen of spades were behind the opening which gave his holding idded strength. Tho he held K-lO-x in West's iouble was based more on rritation at the opponents jetting into the bidding than LTLABNER on any sound supposition that the contract was going to be defeated West led the nine of and dummy was all South expected it to be Since the opening lead removed the danger of a spade the only losers outside the trump suit were a heart in the unlikely event that West held a doubleton and a club. declarer's efforts had to be directed towards losing no more than two trieks in trumps. to achieve that declarer should lead a trump from dummy. there was a problem in entries. It was far too risky to enter dummy with the ace of hearts to lead a for that would expose declarer to a heart ruff. The solution to his problem was very neat. After winning the king of spades with the declarer led a low diamond from his East won the but the defenders had been render- ed helpless. The spade return was won by the queen and the queen of diamonds forced the king. Declarer could win any draw the last and concede a heart and a club. Notice that declarer would have gone down had he played a trump honor at trick for then the defenders would have scored three trump tricks. His play of a low trump would not have cost had the trumps split for then he would have lost only two trump tricks no matter what he led. The only time declarer's play of a low trump would have cost a trick was if either defender held a singleton ten of but a singleton king or ace was twice as likely. RATTLESNAKES Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Kathy age of for her question Do the rattles tell the age of a Nature is beauteous and but she always includes a few bewares to test how smart we are Right the summer sun beckons us to explore outdoors and let's not miss a thing But let's also brush up on those bewares Rattlers are deadly snakes Sensible folk arm themselves with including which rattlers are found how to avoid them and what to do just in case of a bite Every summer we are warned and warned to beware of rattlesnakes And no doubt many sensible persons pay attention On the other every summer many get bitten by poisonous rattler fangs With proper medical almost all victims survive. But every rattlesnake poison proves fatal to a small proportion of those and makes others very sick Let's think about that for a moment. Certainly no sensible person wishes to examine and count the rattlers on a snake in even though the snake looks deader than a doornail Obviously this is a case when we should depend on information from who know how to examine rattlers without risk. The rattle itself is a string of horny beads attached to the far end of the snake's tail. When he shakes it vibrates with a sort of fizzy crackle. Many people believe that the rattler alwavs rattles a warning before he strikes This tale is not to be trusted because they can and sometimes do strike without warning. In any if you hear that wretched rurr do not walk in the opposite direction. It is true that a junior rattlesnake adds more bony beads to his rattle as he grows older For this we would expect a grand-daddy rattler to have the longest rattle with the most bony beads. Sometimes this proves to be but not always The little bony beads are locked but things can happen to shake them loose. For a snake may lose one or more rattles from the far end of his tail this can happen at any time of life. In such the number of rattles cannot tell his true age There is another reason why the rattles may misrepresent his age An extra bead is added to the string each time the snake sheds his skin. Many people take it for granted that he sheds his shabby old skin for a new one just once every year no is how people got the idea that counting the rattles would tell his age. skin-shedding is an agonizing business and no snake does it more often than he has to. Youngsters and teenagers usually have to shed two or three times during their time of early growth which adds more than one rattle a year. Adults must shed when the shabby old skin becomes too scuffed for comfort. With average wear and this may be once a year which adds one new rattle a year. by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box. Huntlngton California 92648. Chronicle Publishing Co.
