Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HIRAID Thunday, July 19, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANi DIXON FRIDAY, JULY 20 Your birthday today: Your experience this year runs to extremes. Material needs seem well taken care of; relationships involve chal- lenge, sacrifice, patience, and turn out to be worth- while. Today's natives care- fully strike a balance be- tween original expression LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Testicle problem needs treatment Dear Dr. Lamb I am very much concerned about brother's problem. When my he was born his testicles didn' descend. At about the age of 1 he went to a doctor to begin treatment. If the shots weren't effective, of course, an opera- tion should have been per formed on him. It seems he never got the operation. Now he's a grown man. Can any- thing be done for him, or is i just too late? Is is possible for him to have any kind of sex life. I don't know why iny parents neglected this impor- tant situation. Dear Reader Undescended testicles should be treated in young boys bef're or at the onset of puberty. One or both testicles may be involved. If an undescended testicle is not brought down at this stage o: life, and it is neglected until full maturity has been achiev- ed, the testicle is usually not capable of producing live sperm, cells. If one testicle is proper- ly descended it can produce sperm, and such an individual will be able to father children. When neither testicle is des- cended before maturity is reached, then the man is al- most always permanently ster- ile. This does not mean that he will not be able to engage in sexual activity. The testicles have two main functions. One is to produce sperm cells, and the other is to produce sex hormones. The undescend e d testicles still produce testoster- one and the individual involv- ed can be just as masculine as any other man in all res- pects. He has the endocrine make-up for the normal amount erf sex drive. The testicles have to be locat- ed outside the body to pro- duce suitable amounts of live sperm cells so that a man can father children. The control of the temperature of the tes- ticles is essential to a man's fertility, but not to his produc- tion of male hormone. Dear Dr. Lamb I have often wondered about the chil- dren of paraplegics, health- wise. After I read your article about paraplegics having chil- dren, I was prompted to ask a few questions. Wouldn't the cause of the paraplegia de- termine the health of the child? Could a disease cause this to be inherited, but obviously an accident would not? Then I was wondering, in particular, about polio. Is polio a disease that can be inherited or not? If a woman had polio when she was about 25 years old and a few years later gave birth to a healthy child, would this girl be healthy and, if she has other children, is there a possibility of the polio being inherited? Dear Reader Many worn en who have had polio hav normal children. Polio is virus disease and, while it ma damage the nervous sytem tha affects the muscles particular ly, once the disease is over the individual cannot transmi it to anybody else. It's no Ion ger contagious, and it is in n way an inherited disease. Yo should think of it in the sam light as chicken pox, measles and other virus diseases which really are contagious diseases and not inherited diseases. Paraplegics have damage t National Parks, where all native plants and animals are >rctected by law. One species s the rare and remarkable sii- versword. One of its limited locales is Haleakala Park on the Island of Maui. It includes the top of an enormous volcanic moun- ain, with a weathered summit some feet high. Its ragg- ed crags plunge 3000 feet to a lesolate cindery crater, cover, jig 19 square miles. Haleak- ia's name means House of the iun, but the fiery old volcano now dormant, though not entirely extinct. Here among the impossible inders, the siiversword and a ew other unique species man- ge to survive in the cool dry air and brilliant sunshine. The [awaiian name "ahinah 1 n a means though rom a distance the silver- sword looks like a ball of sil- ver-white daggers.

But do try. It's a chal- enge! PETER E E D S BETTER BETTER P E A NUTS small white hairs that add the silvery gleam. In this high, dry, alpine re- gion, the thirsty sunlit air eva- porates moisture from unpro- tected plant cells. The leafy daggers of the silverswprd have tough skins, and their furry little hairs reflect away much of the glare. Thus the silver- sword conserves moisture from shower to shower. But never- theless it grows slowly. After about 20 patient years, it is ready to flower. A tall sticky stem sprouts from the center, bearing several hund- red buds. The buds grow grace- ful stems topped with flower pom-pons of lavender blue. Crawling bugs are stopped by the sticky goo, but flying in- sects arrive to take the nectar and to pollinate the flowers. When the seeds are ripe and ready to go, the parent silver- sword withers and dies. This rare and remarkable plant also grows on the lafger Island of Hawaii, some 40 miles to the southeast. As you would expect, we find it in sim- lar alpine conditions, high up in volcanic craters and on the cindery slopes. These silver- swords also grow in a Nation- al Park where, thank good- ness, they are protected from mindless souvenir hunters. The Hawaiian Islands were built by eruptions from sub- marine volcanoes. Por a while, heir cindery slopes stood bare and barren, out there in the mid-Pacific. Gradually the winds, waves and birds brought seeds from far distant lands. In time the islands had lush vegetation. The silver- sword species is classed in the sunflower family. But nobody knows what the original plants were like or how they ad- justed and became unique. YES, EUMO-J 60 TELL. BUMSTEAO TO CUT THE. GRASS GO ASK WELL WMATCAMJr WHAT YOU I rA CAW DC?
