22 LETHBRIOGE HERALD July 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am now able to recognize that I have a serious obsession about gain- ing weight for probably a mul- titude of reasons. I read your column about the side effects and disadvantages in not eating properly of sex drive and and personality I am experiencing these effects now to a serious degree. I have been eating improperly for seven years and look back and see the unpleasant changes that have taken place. I'm five feet tall and weigh 87 pounds. Could you tell me where I could find a diet that is more importantly centered around balanced nutrition rather than the diets with lamb I can't eat due to a nervous milk shakes and egg nogs to just put on I know I would inevitably put on some weight by beginning to eat. I want to get on a balanced eating plan that will help me to discipline myself and supp- ly me with the vitamins my body must badly need at this point. I have gotten myself into a serious state of poor health and am very eager to put my every effort into a good healthy eating plan. I sincere- ly hope your answer will be something more than Dear Reader You need to learn something about nutrition. For a write to me in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New York. N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on Balanced Diet. Send 50 cents to cover costs. A proper diet includes all the necessary amounts of vitamins and plus sufficient complete proteins. That usually means a quart of milk skim milk or its equivalent is Ade- quate amounts of poultry and fish for complete protein quart of milk plus seven weighed of any of these items each day will meet your protein re- Then you need fruit and cereal. Study the booklet to see which ones give you the needed vitamins. Then a balanced diet must have enough calories. If you don't eat enough calories the protein in your diet will be used for energy and not to develop a good healthy body by forming replacing blood hor- mones and other vital sub- stances and structures for good health. A calorie- deficient diet can lead to a protein deficiency. That is why starved people lose their muscles. Next you will need to start an exercise program to regain your muscle mass. You when you starve you lose mus- cle tissue and your muscles may stay small even when you go back to eating a normal unless you are active enough to work your muscles and to stimulate them to grow. A muscle grows because you put it under load as in lifting a weight. It grows strong enough to lift the weight easily. Then if you increase the weight it grows some more. The bigger the muscle the more weight it can lift and the more you lift the bigger the muscle. A number of calisthenic-type of exer- cises are wonderful for this including push knee raising up on your if you a reasonable weight training program. When you regain your muscular strength you will have more energy. Your posture will be better and you will have less trouble preventing obesity or develop- ing fat deposits later. Let me know how you make out with your program. Dr. Lamb welcomes ques-. tions 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.

If the thirteenth card was the jack of spades. West would win but would be endplaywi. His forced dia- mond return would present declarer with a rufl-and-sluff.

Ask Andy DOPPLER Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Timothy age of Kentucky for his question. What is the Doppler A German physicist named Christian Doppler discovered this way back in 1842. It is related to moving ob- which seem to change the frequency of sound waves and light waves. We can detect the Doppler effect in the whistle of a passing train. Astronomers use it to figure whether a certain star is approaching or receding iiom the earth. It also tells how fast the distance between us and a certain star is increasing or decreasing. The Doppler effect first was discovered in sounds created by moving objects. A good ex- ample is the whistle of a pass- ing train. As we stand beside the naturally the sound grows louder as the train approaches and fades as the train chugs away into the dis- tance. But to a sharp-eared something else also happens to the whistling sound. This something is the Doppler effect. The note of the whistle grows higher as it approaches and sinks to lower notes as it departs down the tracks. This oddity is related to the which is the frequency of sound. The energy of sound pulses along in waves and frequency is the number of pulses per second. Faster sound vibrations cause higher notes and slower sound waves produce lower notes. For the lowest note of a well-tuned piano vibrates with 27 sound waves per second. Its fre- quency is 27. The highest note on that same piano has a fre- quency of pulses per second. These high and low sound variations are called As a train dashes toward down the the sound of its whistle gets louder and also higher. The loudness has nothing to do with the Doppler effect. The rising pitch does. It means that as the train the sound waves are reaching our ears at a faster rate. as the distance between us and the train so do the dis- tances between the whistling sound waves. This means that the sound vibrations are being crowded together. We hear more of them with each passing second. of increases the frequency of the whistle and its pitch grows higher. The sound reaches its highest note as it passes us by when it also happens to be loudest. As the train dashes away down the the sound waves are stretched apart again. Fewer of them reach our ears per second. The slower vibrations lower the frequency and the pitch of the departing whistle sinks to lower and still lower notes. We call this an effect because the pitch of the whis- tle does not really change. It merely seems to do so because its sound waves are squeezed and stretched by the moving train.
