Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDCE HERAID ThunJoy, July 17, 1972 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON rniDAV, JULY zs Your oilUnlay today: You are eilher your best friend or worst rival (his year. Extern- al factors nre not always in exact step wilh your reac- tions. Relationships are re- cast in accord wilh your spir- itual progress. Today's nat- ives often enjoy physical strength, personal leadership, admiration from people of less drive. ARIES (March 21-April See for yourself before respond- ing to a dramatic story. Much of today's action is a matter of adjusting the old rather than creating the new. TAURUS (April 20-May Expect relatively less demand on your energy, share good humor with friends while taining your momentum. Go visiting. GEMINI (May 21-Jane Your watchfulness must in- clude tangibles as well as sur- face appearances. Closing out the weekly cycle is more of a change than usual. CANCER (June 21-July Technical advice is needed for any serious transaction. Per- sonal possessions may increase, perhaps not of your own initia- tive. LEO (July 23 Aug. In- decision has its uses today is not the time to begin new LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Physicians study acupuncture By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Is acu- puncture very popular in the United States? Can it be used for all types of operations" Could it be used for a prostate operation? Dear Header No, acu- puncture is not popular in the United States. In fact, It's safe to say that most doctors know almost nothing about it. Cer- tainly this would be true from the "standpoint of experience. There has been an upsurge of interest in this procedure since Itn President's Cniha trip. Just how successfully it can be used in American medicine will need to await clinical trial by medi- cal investigators. The old traditional acupunc, lure in Chinese medicine mere- ly consisted of sticking needles into the body at specified points. Jt would be difficult to see how this alone w o u 1 (I produce enough of an anesthetic reac- tion to the patient to enable one to perform major surgery, let alone cure disease. Old Chi- nese teachings believed that in- sertions of needles at various points in the body cured all sorts of disease just as a result of the procedure alone. From the available early re- ports by only a few observers it would appear what the Chi- nese are doing today isn't tra- ditional acupuncture at all, but In reality the inserted needle which is supposed to reach a nerve may be connected to an electrical current. Nerves lit- erally are the body's electrical wire and whenever you start introducing electrical current along the nerves it is a whole new ball game, not just acu- puncture. A number of investigators have used electrical anesthesia in this country in the past. Our scientists know electrical cur- rent Introduced into a nerve can relieve pain. Medical World News recently reported the case of Ted EndrzejewsW, a 38-year- old Pennsylvanian, who is pro- tected from pain by a small electrical current. After a spi- nal injury he had such severe pain he could not drive a car, have sexual intercourse or even get a night's sleep. Now he can, with the aid of an electri- cal pack with wires that are in- serted into the spine. When he begins to feel pain he turns a simple dial and electric current stops it. I would suspect there are not going to be many people hav- ing prostate operations under acupuncture right now, but if the use of the more modern techniques with the electrical impulses prove to be effective, then I expect there will be a mad rush on the part of the American physicians to learn how to use it. In the meantime, if you contemplate anything as sensitive as a prostate opera' tion, I would suggest that you let your doctor stick to the old fashioned, American system o, using an anesthetic.

In Ihe semi-final round, Hamilton and Pcrlman exe- cuted an artistic display o[ deception lo upset the threa no trump contract tho thrust on South by an aggressive parlner, appears lo be unbeatable. Hamilton, seated West, tjpencd (he six spades, tha deuce was played from dum- my and Perlman put in the rmrn (o di.slodge declarer's lung. A diamond was led lo the jack, losinfi to East's acr.

The latter returned the ten lo dislodge (he king and establish his eight, as West discarded the Cine of spades. The nine of diamonds was led to the queen and South cashed the ace and jack of clubj. On the last club, West discarded Uie jack of spzdei, to create the illusicn that he had led originally from a suit consisting of the AJ-9-6. Jf this were the case, iu fact, and he had already shown up with two hearts and three clubs, then it appeared that he must hava begun with four dia- monds headed by the ten- end therefore held -a second stopper in that suit. South was assured of eight tricks, three clubs, two dia- monds, two hearts, and one spade. It appeared safe (a lead a spade, fcr if West had the ace, he would be obliged lo lead away from the 10-5 of diamonds on the return ar.d thereby surrender the fulfilling trick lo the declar- er. Thers was the further consideration -that East had passed in second position end inasmuch as he had al- rea'dy shown up with the aca of diamonds and the ace of hearts, it appeared most un- likely that he cculd also hold the ace of spades, On the basis of the evi- dence, declarer innocently led a spade. To South's dis- may, West produced the five find East won the trick wilh the ace and then cashed the eight of hearts for the set- ting trick. In the ebsence of the fan- cy defensive footwork, de- clarer might have tried to eplit out the diamonds. When the ten (alls under the king, Bouth's Ions card in the suit becomes established for i ninth trick, Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Wade Moore, age 8, of Florence, South. Carolina, for his ques- tion: How do the taste buds taste? They do it with chemicals, moisture and a sort of tele- phone system that flashes news items lo the brain. Your choosy little taste buds are buried in the skin of your tongue and several other damp places in- side your mouth. They also share information with sensi- jve smelling cells in back of rour nose and throat. You have lundreds of little taste buds and each one is a hump made :rom many tiny taster celis. The body has millions of sen- sitive cells and all of them ivork in much the same way. Vhen they sense bits ot infor- mation, they flash these reports o the brain. Your fingers know he difference you touch a hot stove or a chunk of ice, a smooth glass or the furry coat of a cat. Clever cells of this sort are. buried in the skin all over your body. They are connected to finer-than-flne nerve threads that lead to the brain. And the brain lets you know whether you are touch- ing something hot or cold, smooth or rough. The taste buds, of course, are very special sensing cells that report the flavors of your food. They too are connected to nerves that carry their reports to the brain. As the nerves pass through the body, the fine ones merge together to make larger ones. Those from tile tasta buds meet with the lower back part of the brain. There the strands that carry messages about dif- ferent flavors separate and travel onward to the clever re- gion In front of the brain. So far, the messages are In code. But when they reach the brainy part of the brain they are translated into the taste signals that we can understand. Strange to say, tastes and flavors come from certain chemicals in oar foods. The taste buds use their own sen- sitive chemicals to tell which flavor is which. But to do this, the little bumps must be moist and fairly warm. This is be- cause the chemicals they use must be dissolved in liquid. Of course, the liquid they use is the moist saliva that oozes all over the skin inside the mouth. Some taste buds can sense the difference between all sorts of different flavors. But others are specialists. There is a group of tasters near the Up of your tongue. It knows when you lick a lump of sugar or some- thing sweet. Along side of your tongue you have a group of tasters who send messages when you eat salty food. Two other groups, farther back along the sides of your tongue, report sour flavors. Another group on the back of the tongue can taste bitter flavors. Most foods are blends of dif- ferent flavors and the taste iuds work together to test hem. They work very hard, testing all the chemicals that get dissolved In the moisture nside your mouth. In fact, the jusy taste buds soon wear out their sensitive cells. But as old ones become useless, new ones are formed. Every ten days or so, about half the weary old aster cells are replaced with ieen new ones. Questions asiea BY cnnuion of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.

PEP criticized WINNIPEG (CP) Una Decter, chairman of Jlani- oba's welfare advisory com- mittee and appeal board, was critical of provincial m a k e- work programs, saying here .hat they are little better than welfare. Mrs. Decter told a communi- y law clinic meeting that Man- toba's two year oid Pro- Employment Program, known as PEP, often consists of little more than "cutting brush and picking up stones." It was "degrading" for a man to be expected to work at a job like picking stones off a 'armer's field when his chil- dren could probably do a bet- er jobs because they have stronger backs.

MIAMI (AP) Everyone has heard of a snake in the grass, but U.S. Customs inspectors at Miami Interna- tional Airport thought they had come up with some grass in a snake Monday. A boa constrictor that had arrived aboard a Ilighl from South America bulged suspi- ciously and inspectors thought somebody might have force- fed the animal plastic bags filled with marijuana or other drugs. J. C. Witzlebcn, manager of Pan American Airline's cargo and mail services, was asked if he could take x-rays of the snake. "Certainly, sir. How many views would you he re- plied.
