(1971: By The Chicago Tribune Groundhogs Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Honk Encyclopedia to George Montgomery, Jr., age 15, of Lilesville, North Carolina, for his question: What are the habits o( the groundhog? There is nothing hoggish about him, though he does spend much of the day down in his underground burrow. What's more, the groundhog, alias the wcodeliMk, does not waste his ime chucking wood. The Al- 'onquin Indians called him by a lame that sounded something ike "wcjack" and the early set- ters remodeled this to "wood- shock" and later to "wood- chuck." Actually, he is a rather slow character who comes above ground to lunch on rassy vegetation and some- :imes spends a lazy hour or so >asking in the afternoon sun- shine. TUMBLEWEEDS-By TOM K. RYAN LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Get checkup fast for hiatal hernia We have discussed some of] the practical points about hiatal hernia. Now is a good time to talk about what you should and should not do about symptoms that may or may not mean hi- atal hernia. Although dull pain or fullness behind the breast bone can be caused by hiatal hernia, other disorders can cause similar discomfort. If you have this problem and even if it occurs only after eating, you need a medical examiniation. A care- ful examination of the heart is in order. This includes a record- ing of the heart's electrical ac- tivity Both hiatal hernia and heart disease occur together in some cases. This taxes the doctor's skill to determine if the symp- toms are caused by the hernia or the heart or both. Disturb- ances of normal rhythmic con- traction of the esophagus, some- times with actual spasm, can cause excruciating pain in the University ombudsman appointed EDMONTON (CP) Dr. Donald B. Scott has been ap- pointed tile University of Al- berta's first ombudsman. Dr. Scott, a member of the university's physics department since 1940, is the former chair- man of the department of com- puter science and director of the computing centre. The ap- pointment as ombudsman is ef- fective Sept. 1. The university said in a re- lease that his duties would in- volve the investigation of com- plaints and grievances made to him by students and staff con- cerning academic and adrnini strative procedures, practices and decisions. chest almost indistinguishable from heart pain. It is true that difficulty in swallowing may occur, particu- larly in more advanced cases pf hiatal But, sometimes the sensation of food being caught in the center of the chest or difficulty in swallowing can be caused by a tumor and some tumors are cancer- ous. No one can afford to delay having a correct diagnosis made in this instance. This requires x-rays and in some cases look- ing into the esophagus with a special instrument. If a mass or diseased area is present, sur- gery may be required. Occasionally, difficulty in swallowing is really caused by improper function of the valve between the esophagus and the stomach without a hernia being present. The valve may be ob- structed, causing the esophagus to dilate and fill with food. Vom- iting undigested food may re- sult, sometimes without pain. A number of these cases require surgical correction, ditttattm of the valve and long term management with variable suc- cess. What can you safely do your- self I think if you have simple burning at tile lower of the breast bone, you can adjust your habits yourself. In other words, stop smoking, stop cof- fee entirely and don't drink al- cohol, colas or tea. Eat a bland diet for a few -weeks. If your symptoms go away, rejoice and stay with your program. If they don't, go see your doctor. Beyond the common problem of heartburn you will be better off to see your doctor for a good examination. Of course, prevention must he considered. Avoiding abdominal obesity helps to prevent hiatal hernia and eliminating bad hab- its decreases the likelihood of acid stomach secretions being regurgitated into the lower eso- phagus. This requires self-dis- cipline. Is your life worth it? The groundhog is one of the largest of the ground squirrels, a member of the genus marmo- ta. He has various marmot cou- sins living in Asia and parts of Europe and a remarkable first cousin who enjoys life in the Rockies, from New Mexico to Alaska. This colorful character is known as the "whistler" be- cause he utters a piercing whis- tle to warn his neighboring kin- fold of approaching visitors. His coarse thick rwat is griz- zled with black and white, nice- ly set off with black feet, a black face and attractive white marks on his cheeks and fore- head. All marmots inhabit complex systems of underground bur- rows with storage and sleeping chambers, plus up to 20 exits. The slow, rather timid crea- tures like to have plenty of get- away tales concealed in piles of rock or fallen logs. When on :he surface, their leisurely din- ing may be disturbed by a hun- gry predator and it's nice to have a handy escape hatch within easy scampering dis- tance. Most marmots enjoy each other's company and live in colonies, where the ground is riddled with their underground burrows. The groundhog mar- mot of eastern North America is an exception. He prefers a solitary life, though the mother lends her brood until they can fend for themselves. The five to ten-pound mother gives birth to a litter of two to eight babies weighing about one ounce apiece. At birth they are blind, bare and totally helpless. After a month or so, they take their first look around at their under- ground nursery. Soon after this, they are coaxed to sub- stitute crunchy vegetation for their mother's milk and by late summer they are ready to embark on their separate lives of more-or-less solitude. The adult woodchuck is a chubby, Uriels-set fellow with a rabbity face and small rounc ears. His bulky body may be 27 inches long, plus a six inch brushy tail. His thick coarse coat is a grizzled mixture of I brownish reds or greys. His legs are rather short and when dining he often sits upright on his rump, using his hands to feed grassy twigs into his mouth. As a rule, he comes up to dine in the evening and spends most of his time dozing below. When it comes to doz- ing, the woodchuck is a cham- pion. In late summer he eats extra food and builds his weight to about ten pounds. When day- time temperatures drop below 00 degrees, he curls up in one of his underground chambers and sinks into the deep coma of tine hibernation.

BECTLE BAILEY-By Mort Wolker February 2 is known through- out the land as Groundhog Day and the groundhog is expected to appear above ground to sur- vey the weather. If he sees his shadow, so they say, he goes back down for another six weeks of sleep. This lovely leg- end may not be exactly true. However, the woodchuck does wake up from his deep winter sleep a few times usually to go to the bathroom and stretch a few of his lazy muscles.

L ABNER-By Al Capp TORONTO (CP) A Univer- sity of Toronto doctor says he has produced hayfever in a test tube and developed a serum to control it by using goat protein. Dr. B. J. TJnderdown, of the newly-formed Institute of Im- munology, told a news confer- ence yesterday that persons with hayfever have an abnor- mal amount of a protein called Emmundbiosulin in their blood which causes misery when it reacts with ragweed pollen. He said that by using goats, he has developed a serum that can combat this protein which he has extracted from hayfever victims. The only problem, he said, is that the goat serum cannot be used on patients because hay- fever victims likely would suffer severe allergic reactions to the goat protiin. But he said the research could provide clues as to how to con- trol hayfever. Dr. Underdown said he pro- duced hayfever in a tube by mixing extracts of ragweed with white blood cells from hayfever victims. Dr. Underdown also is investi- gating a second defence protein Immunoglobulin A which may be able to give protection against a variety of ailments. It the chief antibody found in and intestinal is mother's juices. He said study of this anti- body, taken from milk samples, may reveal better ways to im- munize people against viruses and bacteria. The institute is a group of H doctors doing co-operative re- search on the body's defence mechanisms. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.
