I COULDN'T CARE LESS.'] By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb You had a letter in your column from, a woman who had pernicious anemia. She had been receivini B-12 once a month and had never had a blood test. This reminded me of the problem concerning my mother. She had gone to the doctor for a number of years for pernicious anemia and had received a monthly shot of B-12 but there had been no blood tests or other treat- ment. She kept getting -worse and with much urging she fin- ally went to see my doctor who Is a specialist in internal medicine. When he examined her he immediately put her in the hospital and stalled giving her massive doses of B-12. She responded well and was a new person. My doctor was so dis- tressed with the treatment that she had received that he re- ported the problem to the coun- ty medical association. Appar- ently this wasn't the first time that this doctor had a problem and eventually his office was vacated. I tell this story to ask you if you won't stress to your read- ers thai if they are in doubt about the treatment they are receiving to see another doc- tor. A reputable doctor will not be offended if you ask for another consultation, but if he is, that is the time to make a change. Although 99 per cent of the doctors are reputable there is bound to be a black sheep in the medical profession just as I here is in others. Dear Reader I don't dis- agree with your observation. The truth is I have seen very few people who have been can- onized in life ar.d this includes doctors. In defending physi- cians, however, I will say that as a group they are one of the hardest working segments of our society and most of them take their responsibilities quite seriously. I don't know of many other segments of our society who would permit their private life to be interrupted to the degree that most physicians do or would work the same number of hours, including weekends and holidays and all hours of the night or would, in fact, do as much charity work as many physicians do. The truth is that most doc- tors like their patients and they get something out of being able to do somelhing for them. This is not lo say that they don't enjoy their income as physi- cians, but the income doesn't keep them from enjoying the other aspects common to the practice of medicine. I agree that if a patient is concerned about his treatment he should have a consultation. If nothing else, such attitude on the part of the patient re- flects a lack of confidence and it interferes wilh the normal treatment relationship between the doctor and the patient. The way to solve the problem is to have a consultation and clear the air. Most doctors who are really concerned about how .heir patient is doing and are 'or some reason or another un- certain about either the pa- ient's state or what to do for lim usually will ask for a con- sultation from another physi- cian who might be able lo help vith the problem.

We have reliable evidence that some animals see only black, white and gray tones. Others have color vision, more or less like ours, and some see colors way beyind our range of vision. One of the most fascina- ting fields of modern science is investigating the capabilities of animal senses. This research has barely begun and the realm is almost limitless. Hence there should be plenty of careers in the field for fu- ture scientists. In most animals, the sense of sight is suited lo Iheir partic- ular environments. Cats and cattle view the scenery in tones of gray, accented with patches of black and white. Other evi- dence suggests that the octopus beholds a range nf colors, much as we do. Tests vith certain in- sects suggest that they see glamorous colors of the ultra- violet wave-lengths, wliich we canr.ot sec. The earthworm has no eyes, as we know them. Though he has numerous sen- sitive cells that help him lo perceive the difference be- tween light and shadow. So far as we know at pres- ent, closely related animals that share similar environ- ments also share similar types of vision. For example, mem- bers of the cat tribe are color- blind with a dividend to as- sist them on their night prowl- ing safaris. Their eyes have special lenses that accent light and dark tones to give sharper images in dim light. Dogs and pigs, horses, monkeys and oth- er familiar mammals also are color-blind. So are the nocturn- al lemurs, though they see bet- ,cr by red light. Frogs and salamanders see only gray tones, though lizards and olher reptiles tested have color vision. So do certain birds. At least those that con- duct their business during the bright hours of daylight can see the world in rainbow colors. Ordinary fishes have remark- able eyes that survey the scenery on all sides and also compensate for the angles of light above and below the wa- ter. They also see colors. Apparently certain insects see colors beyond our dreams, extra vivid colors in the ultra- violet range beyond our vision. The honeybee sees the flowery garden colors that we see and more. To her eyes, a com- mon yellow daisy has a dark centre amid a halo of brilliant spots of ultraviolet light. The graceful, swallowtailed Ima moths also see ultraviolets. The female luna sees the male as a brunette; he sees her as a glamorous blon'.lo. We see them both as pale, moonbeam green. Naturally we cannot say whether animals perceive or interpret colors as we do. All we know is that they can dis- tinguish certain colors or tones. But we do know that color TV sets are wnsted on our pet cats and dogs. And al last we know that a red rag docs not infuriate a bull. Chances are, he sees a white one more clearly. What triggers his tem- per is a moving object, which he interprets as a threat to his security. Questions asRed Tiy cnTTclicD of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

He said new ground may be iroken in fringe benefits when negotiators from the railway and 17 unions representing a majority ot its employ- ees meet in November.

Better way would thwart car thieves EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Motor Association has nsked the provincial govern- ment lo devise a system which would make registration of stol- en vehicles more difficult. "It appears obvious that the Alberta vehicle registration system, while convenient to the public, is also safe and con- venient for car thieves across association directors said in their annual meeting with Ihe cabinet. Mr. Lach said the major unions have indicated they will bargain for job security, pen- sions, sickness benefits and other matters. "The unions might be sur- prised at how far we might be prepared to go in some areas if we can see or be shown ways of meeting the he said.
