Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta me LcmBHiuuc ncnALis Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I hope you have some advice for people like me. I was fascinated that yon consider calories a day as low I've belonged to TOPS International for years and in that time I've seen many women who lose weight on calories either fast or slow There are many of us who eat less to maintain our weight and much less in order to lose. I eat to to stay the same weight and only 900 to lose weight very slowly. I'm small five feet six and weigh 145 pounds A biood thyroid test proved slightly low but didn't warrant medication I'm reasonably active and eat balanced meals. I'm always tired I get up tired and must push myself at all times. Is there any hope for people like Must we struggle tired and hungry9 All we have to look forward to is additional and more difficult dieting as we grow older. Dear Reader Small women do have a problem in preventing or eliminating obesity. The problem is that your body doesn't use many calories The main use of unless you are very is to run your body at rest Energy is required to move chemicals through cells The movement of chemicals is the main use ot calories. Right here is the neglected part of weight control Your muscles use more calories at rest for this than fat tissue. If you have a lot of you will use more calories just sitting than you will if most of your body weight is fat Small even if they are often fail to develop enough muscle How much energy you use at rest is affected by and a low thyroid can mean your body runs at a lower level using less energy. An overactive thyroid has the opposite effect In your case perhaps you do need some thyroid. Most overwieght have normal thyroid function. The second use of energy is by physical activity jogging and many activities are calorie but you must do a lot of them to use many calories. Most people fail to use exercises that build muscles. I think even women with your problem would be smart to do some strength even mild weight to build muscles. With more muscles the body will use more energy at rest and the diet problem won't be so difficult. That may be the secret to your problems not enough muscle. When you develop muscles you are building tissue that literally generates the energy mechanism of the body. Many fat and tired people have so little muscle mass that they don't process food to energy Those individuals who use very little and hence get fat if they don't markedly restrict their must use ways to increase the body's ability to convert food calories to energy rather than store them as fat. If you are one of those rare people who has low-thyroid then that should be corrected. if you are one of those people whose busy type of activity doesn't build perhaps you need to concentrate on building muscles. It doesn't take a lot of work each day to build muscles. it is the missing formula most people need to lose weight. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

Declarer exhibited a delicate sense of timing to land a difficult four spade game. Ihe vulnerability precluded East-West from finding a sacrifice at five of either minor. Though short in high South's highly distributional band had tremendous trick- taking potential. he needed no more than slight encouragement from his part- tier to contract for four spades. West led his partner's' and at first it seems that declarer must lose two tricks in hearts and a trick in each minor for the opening bid almost certainly marked East for the ace of diamonds. our de- clarer was not the type to give and he found a way to avoid a second heart loser. Dummy played low to the first and declarer captured East s nine of hearts with the ace The king of spades drew both outstanding and low diamond was led to the king and ace. East did as well as he could by returning a diamond. Declarer cashed the ace of clubs and got off lead by playing his remaining club. He did not mind which defender won the trick. It was obvious that West s heart lead had been a so if he won the club he would be unable to lead a heart through the queen and would have to lead a minor allowing declarer ruff in dummy while discarding a heart loser from hand. Simi- if East won the he would be faced with the choice of giving declarer a ruff-and- sluff or leading a heart up to the again limiting declarer's heart losers to one. Note that declarer will be defeated it he leads clubs before diamonds West can win the second club and shift to a diamond. East wins and exits with a and sits back to wait for his two heart tricks III Your horoscope By Jeim Dixon JULY 24 Your birthday Fol- lowing an initial special ef- you're encouraged to proceed on your own- initiative.

How are geodes One of nature's favorite games is hide-and-seek. For many useful minerals are hidden in the earth's crust and it's up to us to go seek them. One of these buried treasures is the a hoard of colorful crystals concealed inside what looks like a plain rock. Every well-stocked rock collection has a a roun- dish rock sliced in half to reveal its pocket of sparkling crystals. it is a hollow stone of sand- stone or some other common mineral Its glassy crystals are clustered lining the inside wall of the hollow Usually the glassy treasures are tinted crystals of silica in the form of semi-precious gem stones They may be rose-tinted or honey-tinted quartz crystals The secret pocket of the loveliest geode is lined with violet tinted crystals of amethyst. Other geodes are lined with rainbow colored bands of agate. All of these surprising pebbles are formed in more-or-less the same way The patient recipe is done by drip-dripping and seep-seeping through pores in the earth's rocky crust. Often the ground is bedrock sand- which contains lots of silica Molecules of this com- mon mineral are used to build tough quartz and gritty grains of also a long list of semi-precious stones in colors that rival the rainbow. Seeping ground water dis- solves silica and other minerals from our sandstone bedrock It seeps faster or slower through the depending on the dry and rainy seasons When it evaporates or becomes it tends to dump its dissolved loot. These deposited molecules patiently arrange themselves to form glassy crystals. Sandstone is a porous filled with mini-pockets Here and it may have holes as big as your fist. In order to create a the earth needs a secret little cave in the bedrock and lots of per- colating ground water The patient recipe takes perhaps a hundred million years or more As the ground water seeps through the porous it dissolves silica and other minerals Time after it seeps into the mini-sandstone cave and leaves its loot behind One by one the deposited molecules arrange themselves in crystal for- mations If all of them are the crystals will be glassy clear quartz If a few such as are the glassy crystals will be tinted with some flowery color Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Aak P.O.

Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS July 1974 The Lachine Canada's first step towards opening up the Great Lakes for salt-water was com- pleted 149 years ago today in 1825 after four years of work. The bypassing the rapids immediately up- stream of Montreal on the St Lawrence was first planned in 1700 by the French A shallow canal at Sault Ste. Mane. was dug in 1798 and in immediately after the union of Upper and Lower the Welland canal past Niagara Falls was modernized.
