Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thunrfay, July 34, 1979 THI UTHMIDOI HttALD Ask Andy Emrgy crisis Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Angel Benwoy, 11, of Rensselaer, N.Y. for her question: What will happen whim we run out of petroleum? The so-called energy crisis refens to our dwindling supplies of petroleum. It should not surprise us. After all, we knew that the earth's supplies are limited, and we have squander- ed them at a great rate. Ob- viously we must change our extravagant use of petroleum in order to conserve what we have left. Obviously, our socie- ty must stave bard to develop otter energy sources to replace petroleum. The present petroleum pic- ture seems confused because experts describe it from differ- ent points of view. Geologists tell us that the earth has enough petroleum left to last us for many years, even at our estflavafant rate of consuming it. Oilmen say that the supplies from rich reservoirs near the surface are dwindling fast. The supplies included by geologists are at deep levels and in rocks that contain only small traces.

Conservationists are concern- ed about the many pollutants that result from our present methods of using petroleum as an energy fuel. However, anti- pollutant devices use up still more fuel. True, the picture is confusing. But obviously the time has come to conserve wf dwindling supplies while we plan to develop other of fuel energy. A few decades ago, many people pinned hopes on atomic energy. Now critics point out that, In proportion to toe power they yield, midear power plants are very costly to construct. Also, they pro- duce dangerous atomic wastes. What's more, nobody can guar- antee that nuclear plants are perfectly safe which should disqualify them absolutely. Another alternative is thermal power, which uses heat from the earth's crust to turn electric generators. Sev- eral safe, non-polluting geo- thermal plants are in opera- tion, and geologists estimate that the supply of this energy is almost unlimited. However, the locations are limited to a few regions where fairly recent volcanic heat is trapped near the surface of the earth's crust. In Europe, a mice structure gathers and concentrates the sun's radiant energy to gener- ate electric power. This is the same solar energy used to power our spacecraft. It creates no pollution, and the supply is unlimited. At present, we faced with the enormous problem of harnessing soter energy. Most of our present devices are small solar cells, developed by space scientists. Certainly it will take time and a great deal of money to develop solar ener- gy and possibly other suitable energy sources. And while we wait, each and every one Of us should be very stingy with tfoe gasoline. True, the survival of our pre- sent lavish society seems to depend on petroleum fuel. But it helps to know that all this developed id less than a cen- tury. Without a doubt, the folks of 2073 will have' abundant sources of cheap, non-polluting energy. Perhaps solar energy is the best. But it's up to our generation to explore sll possi- bilities and to hear the bur- den of developing them. questions asked by children at Herald readers sboott be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

South, with an absolute maximum, was delighted to accept the invi- tation. West led the king of dia- ironds, immediately attack- ing the entry to dummy's suit. However, with nine cards in clubs, declarer seemed unconcerned. As a matter of formality, he ducked the first two rounds of diamonds and won the third. He cashed the and queen of clubs. West dis- carding the eight of spades. Declarer overtook the nine of clubs with the king, and then found to his dismay that he had to win the fourth club in his hand. There was no entry to dummy to enjoy his long club, and eight tricks proved to be the limit of the hand. Had clubs divided 2-2, de- clarer would have had no problem.

Test tube babies aren't available Dear Dr. Lamb This a very hard question to ask. I have asked different peipte and they all say to ask you. I had to have an operation so I can't have children. My hus- band and I are very much in love and would give anything to have one. We have heard that you could go to a hospital up north and have a test tube baby. Is this true? If so, please let us know how to get the infor- mation. Dear Reader No, you won't be able to go anywhere and have a test tube baby. It is true that an early fertffiied egg lad early development has been produced within a test tube as a laboratory proce- dure. No one has, however, carried the test tube baby to normal maturity. Many scien- tists feel that the experiments shouldn't even be done. I sus- pect it will be though since most things which can be done eventually are done. Your baste problem Is that you would like to have a baby, which is quite understandable. You didn't elaborate on what kind of an operation you've had, but if you're talking about having had an operation on your tubes, sometimes this can be reversed so that a woman can become pregnant. To find out anything about this you would need to a good gyne- co'ogist, a specialist in women's problems. Of course, if you have had an operation because for health reasons, then this wouldn't be helpful for you. The next best thing would be adoption. Dear Dr. Lamb Recently you discussed in your column about the value of high protein food. About one year ago I discov- ered the value and importance of protein and now I am much better physically. I am in akter- ly man and now I find I can do more and harder work since I have switched to soybean cer- eals and wheat germ foods. I do not care for sweets of any kind cow because I really never get hungry like I did be- fore. There is one thing that irks me, other people tell me the dangers of eating high protein food. So, the question is, just how harmful is high protein food when used in generous por- tions? DEAR Reader You are probably doing a tot better than many other older people who shift their diet to eating large amounts of wcete and disre- gard the proper intake of pro- teins. There are an kinds of proteins and I prefer to see peo- ple get their protein from a var- iety of sources. This should in- clude lean meat, cereals, fish, poultry and fortified nonfat milk. There is no danger in eating too many proteins as long as you are not eating too many calories and getting over- weight. The only people who have a problem of this type- are those who have serious liver or kidney disease. U you like your soybean cereals and wheat germ foods there isn't any rea- son why you shouldn't eat them, and they probably are very good for you. I do hope how- ever, that you are getting some lean meat and some fortified skim milk in your diet. You need calcium. You'll get some in soybeans but it's hard for most .people to get sufficient calcium unless they are in- cluding an adequate amount of milk products such as fortified nonfat milk or uncreamed cot- tage cheese in sufficient quan- tities in their diet. JExcess amounts of proteins converted by the liver to carbohydrates. In tte process the nitrogen that makes the che- mical compound a protfin is simply stripped off and elimi- nated in the urine.
