The Armadillos Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Colleen Bern- liardt, age 12, of Foremost, Al- berta, Canada, for her ques- tion: What is the armadillo's family? His family name is Dasypo- didae and the armadillo may be called a dasypodoid. These scientific terms are coined from an older word for "hare" and ntended to mean hairy-footed. This is odd, because the most -emarkable feature of the ar- madillo's toes are his very cap- able claws. What's more, he ivears armor plating instead of miry, hare-type fur and when AXCER (June 21 July I it comes to traveling, any hare LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. See your doctor for chest pains Dear Dr. Lamb I have a lot and garden and don't like weeds, so I work some, but if I don't stop at the first warn- ing and get to the house and to a chair I get considerable pain in my chest and right arm and generally up my left arm, too. Sometimes I f e e 1 choked. Us- ually I get relief in one to two hours. I don't want to go back to the hospital on my income of a month. I am a long way past retirement age and otherwise in good health. In fact. I have survived my own cutties. In severe degrees, this can also cause referred pain to the arm. If you simply can't afford to see "a doctor and I really can't see how you can afford NOT to see one the only general advice 1 could give you without knowing more about your problem would be to reduce ycv.r weight. If you should be overweight, limit your fats and cholesterol along the lines I have discussed fre- quently in my column and, just in case your problem is related cooking for about 17 years j to a hiatal hernia, eat small since my wife died.

Dear Reader Pain in the And don't involve yourself in chest occurring with exercise activities that reqi'ire bending is often due to heart disease, or stooping over. In fact, you would leave the stalwart arma- dillo far behind. Most scientific terms aim to give us a few hints but the family name of the dasypodoids is hard to fathom. We expect creatures with tough armor plating to be cro- codiles, turtles ar at least rela- tives of the reptile class. But the armor-plated, warm-blood- ed armadillos give birth to live babies and feed them on moth- er's milk. Hence, they belong in the Class Mammalia. This most unusual mammal and his relatives are members of the Order Edentata, a term mean- ing the toothless ones. This is rather peculiar, since the arma- dillo of North America has 20 to 30 teeth in his long tapering jaws. However, they are ex- tremely flimsy teeth without enamel coatings and no roots to fix them securely in his jaw bones. One family of edentates in- eludes the toothless anteaters; 1 another includes some sloths. Members of both thee families have fur coats. The edentate Family Dysypodidae includes several fairly small mammal! native to the New World. Most of them are at home in Ctntral or South America, sharing this territory with their relatives, the sloths and the anteaters. However, sometime in the last century, one armadillo species swam across the Rio Grande river and settled in Texas. Since that time he has extended his range into other regions of the warm, dry southwestern deserts and prairies. The name of his genus is Dasypus which, like his family name, also means "hare1' or "hairy-footed." His species is novemcictus, hence his signature is Dasypus novem- cictu.

His armor-plated tail is 20 inches long and his three- foot-long body is jointed with a dozen bands. All armadillos enjoy insect food and use their long, sticky, extendable tongues to capture their victims. Actually the armor plates are made from hair-type material and as a rule a few bristles poke through the cracks. At least two dasypodoid species have shaggy coats. The hairy armadillo of Argentina con- ceals his armor under long shaggy hair. The pretty little hairy armadillo has rows of shell-pink plates along his spine and over his rump.

(AP) A University of California sci- entist reports he has identified a substance in the brain which appears in some measure to cause schizophrenia and am- phetamine psychosis. If the findings of Dr. Arnold Mandcll of the university's medical school here are cor- rect, it could lead to a treat- ment of schizophrenia, the most common severe mental disor- der, and for overdoses of am- )hetamines. Dr. Mandell said the sub- stance leads to production of hallucinogenic compounds in the brain which cause the same kind of behavior associated with amphetamine overdose and schizophrenia. He said the substance is an enzyme called indolt ethyl amino mctliyltrans- ferase. Dr. Mandell, chairman of (lie university psychiatry depart- ment, reported his findings in the scientific journal Nature. Certain drugs now used to moderate psychoses recently have been shown to inhibit UK brain enzyme. I HATE TO PESO COMMERCIAL. BUT J.NEEPTHPMON6V'. BUGS BUNNY ;
