By Lawrence E. M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Can dieting during pregnancy be harmful to the unborn My friend is one month preg- nant and weighs 110 pounds. She says she will allow herself to gam no more than 10 pounds during the pregnancy. What does determine the weight of the Is there any way a woman can control the weight of the baby so she will have a smaller Dear Reader The only person who should diet during a pregnancy is a woman with a medical like tox- emia of pregnancy. I think it is very unwise for a pregnant woman to diet except upon the advice of her doctor. That new baby needs pro- tein to develop If he doesn't get it there is a possibility of faulty or as some scientists' have the baby's brain may not be developed to its full capacity. In plain the baby won't be as smart as it should be The latest recommen- dations from the Food and Nutrition Council of the National Academy of Sciences recommends an addition of 30 grams of protein a day at a bare minimum. For more in- formation on dietary re- write to me in care of this P.O. Box Radio City Station. New N.Y. and ask lor the booklet on Balanced Diet. Send 50 cents to cover costs The placenta and fluid around the baby will amount to about two and a half pounds. The uterus will also increase in weight as it must develop to provide support for the baby and delivery of the baby It usually increases over two pounds in weight. The breasts normally gain about two pounds. That ac- counts for at least six and a half pounds without consider- ing the weight of the .baby. The body normally ac- cumulates some extra fluid during and the mother's volume of blood is increased to support the pregnancy. It follows that in a normal pregnancy with a baby of about seven the mother will gain a minimum of 15 to 20 pounds just to sup- port the pregnancy. Now if she is fat to begin with she can use some of her body but oddly enough it is the skinny woman who wants to avoid gaining weight during pregnancy. So she harms her own body and harms her baby by failing to follow the good advice of her doctor. The baby's weight will indeed depend upon the mother's health during the and that definitely includes what she eats. It will also depend upon how long the pregnancy lasts. One indica- tion of whether a baby is premature or not is its birth weight Premature babies often have serious health problems at birth. The mother's diet must con- tain adequate amounts of minerals. The baby has to develop a complete skeleton and that means it needs CuJciuiii. The mother can lose calcium from her own skeleton if she doesn't pay attention to this. The American diet is often deficient m so it is a very important consideration. The baby will also need lots of iron. The mother will need more iron to support her increased amount of blood and to make up for the blood loss during delivery. I can't emphasize too strongly the importance of a good diet dur- ing pregnancy. Dr. Lamb welcomes questions from his but because of the volume of mail he cannot answer per- sonally. Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. Write to Dr. Lamb in care of this new- P.O. Box City New N.Y. 10019.

This graceful gliding is possible because the snake has a multitude of ribs attached to an extra long sup- ple plus a network of super-supple muscles and gnppers in his scaly skin. His spine is a long string of jointed vertebrae. Except for a few at the tail each vertebra is attached to a pair of ribs that arch around his snaky body. A four-foot-long snake may have 150 pairs of ribs and larger snakes have 300 pairs or more. For the ribs are spread apart or closed in sections. They are spread apart on the outside of each wavy curve and brought closer on the in- side. An jntricate muscle system is needed to keep the ribs and spine flowing in smooth lateral waves. Actually it is a super-supple with hundreds of overlapping muscles lying just below the scaly skin. Together they control the wavy spine and the spine controls the curving sec- tions of ribs. These motions enable the snake to perform his lateral undulatory motion. But they are not enough to take him traveling from place to place. To get a traveling snake must be able to grip the ground and push himself section by wavy sec- tion. He cannot make any progress across a smooth sur- such as a glass table any more than you can march neatly over smooth ice in slippery shoes. Part of his gripper system is in his body and part is in his natural environment. Some of his scales are small grippers and the lower side of his ribs are attached loosely to his skin. As they spread and they form ridges that tend to grip the ground. The average snake travels flat on the floor where usually there are plenty of rough rocks and tufted grasses. He uses these natural objects as pegs and pushes his wavy sections against them. His curving undulations flow first one and then another pushing against this rock and that tuft of grass When the snake all these separate sections and systems work together in graceful fluid motion.
