Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July 30, 1973 THI UTHMIOOI HBULO Ask Andy The Winds Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Bryn McDougal, age 12, of Tulsa, Okla., for his question: Why does wind direction change at different altitudes? Sometimes a flock of little gray c'ouds scoots along, while a stately parade of big white clouds at a higher level moves in a different direction. Since both groups are blown by winds, obviously the breezy traffic regulations change at different altitudes. Actually, our winds are confined below about ten miles. But within this limit, upstairs and downstairs winds usually blow in different direc- tions. The winds are the global transportation system. They run the world-wide circulation of tiie atmosphere. Actually they run two systems to mix and mingle (be air to a height of about ten miles. One is a permanent system of perman- ent winds that circle the globe in six well-defined belts. Each bait has an upland-down ele- vator that tirulates upstairs and downstairs wind, which blow in different directions. Along certain latitudes, these airy elevators of low and high pressure lift and lower vast masses of air. This permanent system is governed by the sun, the rotating earth and the nature of gases. The spinning earth veers all winds north of tba Equator to the right and those south of the Equator to the left. The three wind belts in each hemisphere match each other, though the wind direc- tions are reversed. The lower air is warmed or chilled by the surface. Warm air expands', spreads thin and rises aloft, where it cools. Chilly is dense and tends to descend in heavy masses. Winds are set in motion be- cause heavy, high-pressure air blows into zones of light, low- pressure air. Above the warm Equator, currents of light air rise to about ten mdpes. At the surface, the northeast and southeast trade winds arrow into this wide belt of low pressure. Thej ascend the Aloft the light air cools and separ ates into two upstairs winds blowing away from' the Equa- tor. In our hemisphere, upper level southeast winds blov above the northeast trade winds. Along latitude 30 de- grees north of vbe Equator, the cool winds upstairs pile up an descend in heavy masses. This creates a down-elevator of hig pressure. Some of the upper air ignores the elevator and coi tinues on toward the North Pole. Part of the descending ait rejoins the surface trade winds and makes another trip to- ward the Equator, up the ele- vator and around the merry-go- round. The rest Joins the pre- vailing westerlies that circle the globe between latitudes 30 an 60 degrees. Along latitude 60 degrees, the westerlies dash with the pola easterlies, coming down from the frozen north. Their warm et air wedges above the mass- es of cold polar air, creatin a high-pressure Here th clashing air masses upset the winds at all levels. These wea thery conflicts cause blustery polar fronts and the prevail ing westerlies carry them across North America. This permanent system o breezy circulation whirls up- stairs and downstairs winds in different directions. Meantime numerous highs and lows cre- ate pockds of turmoil in the global pattern. A monstrous hurricane spirals wild winds through the upper and lower levels. Toe turbulence of a ma jor thunderstorm often revers- es the upper winds over a wide Stormy weather fronts often cause upper and lower winds to blow in differnt dir ecttans?

Vasectomy and prostate surgery Dear Dr. Lamb In 1963 I had a trans-uretbral prostate operation. The young surgein who operated performed a vasectomy on me at the same time without my knowledge or consent. I discovered that he had done so when I found that I could no longer ejaculate. His explana- tion when I questioned him was that he did it to avoid infec- tion. My sex life since this op- eration has been most unsatis- factory and I am convinced that his action was unethical. Could I have sued him for mal- practice? Dear Reader Many urolo- gy surgeons perform a vasec- tomy at the time of the prc tate operation. This has ba done for years long before vasectomy operations were popularized for b i r t h control. Many surgeons feel that this helps protect the testicles from becoming inflamed, a condition called orchitis which some- times follows prostate-opera- tions. A vasectomy in no way af- fects ejaculation. Most .of the fluid comes from the prostate and seminal vesicles. More likely, the valves that control the outlet of the bladder have been affected by surgery. This too is common and does not mean that your surgeon didn't good job. As a result, men commonly have backward ejaculation into the bladder. The sensations and reactions, however, should not change. Most often individuals who've had a prostate operation of the type you've had do not have sexual problems afterward, with or without a vasectomy. There are many other reasons for a man to have problems with his sex life. Often it has to do with psychological factors. Your difficulty may well be that you've not understood what your operation did, what type of responses you should expect, and have totally misun- derstood what a vasectomy does, in relationship to a man's sexual performance. Vasecto- mies were once performed with the thought that it improved men's potency. On the basis of TUMBlEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan your letter you have no for a'malpractice suit. I would suggest that you talk to your doctor and explain your prob- le can explain to you more fully what the effects of the operation are. With a bet- ter understanding of the prob- lem. Perhaps he can explain to confidence and find a signifi- cant improvement in9 your sex life. Dear Dr. Lamb In answer to your request from anyone who has worn the stretch gloves, I am glad to say I have worn them' for several months now and I can't get along with- out them at night. They have given me more relief than all the medical treatments I ever tried, and that means pifis and all kinds of liniments I could get. So I sure can recommend the mto anyone with arthritis._ I used to be up two or three! times at night bathing myj hands in hot water and oint- ments of all kinds but now I' just slip on my stretch gloves' and sleep all night. I am 83 yeas old. Believe me, I know what I am talking about. Dear Header Thanks for your comment I've had a number of letters from people about satisfactory results using stretch gloves. Apparently these are very useful for indi- viduals who have arthritis in the hands. Readers tell me there are differences in the gloves, some of them get bet- ter results with gloves that con- tain synthetic fibers, some have been referred to as "miracle -fi- than they've gotten witb cotton stretch gloves. There are a number of different types of gloves and the best thing I can recommend to those of you who have arthritis of the hands is to try the different types and see which ones help you the most. Send yonr questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspa- per, P.O. Box 1551. Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's new booklet on stipation, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Constipation" booklet. WHY THE STRANGE HAT, LOTSA LUCK? mfrROM ASIA, WflPB.
