Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIOQE July Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am a 15- year-old chain and I've been smoking cigarettes since I was in the eighth grade. am now in the At first I did it to be But now I just can't No matter how I I went to Florida with my parents in the summer. We drove down. On the way I had no urge for a cigarette for one week. Then I met these other girls. They had and I got the nicotine fits. naturally I took advantage of it and had a few I usually never buy because I'm low on cash I'm what you might call a Why can't I I want to so much it's pitiful. Dr you're the only doctor I've consulted about this. I hope you'll be able to help I want to be a healthy human being again' They say on television to stay away from the people who smoke and places where you usually smoke. I don't see how that will help. All I think it would do is to lose your friends and cause you to stay home when you've got the chance to go out I feel like a dope addict. Please help me Dear Reader I wish I could help but the person who has to help you is YOU' The first requirement to quit- ting smoking is to really want to do so That means wanting to quit bad enough to forego some of life's pleasures for a while It looks like you could quit if you can go a week without having any problem. That is a good sign you are not that badly hooked There is still time for you to do something about it. Since it is summer you could easily avoid social situations that caused you to be exposed to other people who smoke. You don't have to go to and you can discipline yourself to stay away from social contacts for a couple of weeks. you will still have the but it will not be so overwhelming after two and you can learn some self-control Perhaps your parents will take you on a trip to make it easier for you. If you are learn to do something constructive with your hands so you can be occupied. You might learn a new hobby like needlepoint. There are a number of devices on the market that will help ease the pain of quit- ting. These include tablets that help kill the desire for nicotine in cigarettes. Then there are devices that cut down on the amount of nicotine you get in cigarette these are filter-like devices. You could probably quit if you really wanted to do so since you have already demonstrated that you don't miss it for a week when you are not in a social setting that includes smoking. Remember that after that first initial period of stopping smoking you can't ever smoke not even one cigarette. The mistake many people make is to be off a week or even longer and then think they can smoke just one or in your just one scrounged butt. In no time they are back on the habit It's really up to you If you think you need some additional help you might see your family but I'm pretty sure you could quit on your own if you really make up your mind to do it. You are a good example to other young people of just what the cigarette habit can lead to Flashback 1871 The ferry Westfield exploded in New York killing 100 persons. 1898 Prince Otto von the Iron Chancellor of died. 1930 The British airship R101 flew the Atlantic 1963 Stephen Ward was convicted on two of five charges of procuring after a sensational trial in London at the height of the Profumo scandal He took an overdose of drugs that night .and died Aug. 3 Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN The Cfiicjgo Tribune Both vulnerable South deals NORTH 10 K 7 7 5 2 A 8 4 3 WEST EAST 10 9 6 3 4 2 Void 10 9 5 2 SOUTH 9 6 5 3 J 8 5 Void K QJ 7 6 The bidding South West North East Pass 1 INT Pass pass 2 NT Pass Pass 4 Pass 54k Pass Pass Pass Opening lead- King of One ot the clues that suggest a dummy reversal is the possession of high trumps in dummy even one high trump can be sufficient Note declarer's technique on this hand An overcall of one no trump is equivalent to a one no trump opening bid and wliile it tends to deny interest in the major suits. South reasoned that it could do no harm to cue-bid the opponent s suit just in case a 4-4 fit could be uncovered in hearts or spades When his partner denied holding a major South bid his clubs Since his stopper in diamonds was tenuous at North raised and South was under no pressure in continuing to game. West led the king of diamonds and when dummy came down declarer thought the play would be a cinch Since at least one spade could be ruffed in it appeared that the maximum number of losers would be two spade tncks de clarer received a rude jolt when after ruffing the opening he plaved the king of clubc west showed out he could not draw all the trumps for that would strip of trumps and he would not be able to ruff spades Nor could he give up a spade and play a trumping spades in dummy and diamonds in his for East then would end up with long trumps and declarer would be unable to score his four heart tricks Declarer found a neat way out of his impasse. He crossed to the king of hearts and ruffed a diamond with his low trump After cashing the queen and jack of clubs dummy was entered with the ace of spades and the ace of clubs drew East's last trump. On this declarer discarded a spade from his hand. It was now a simple matter for declarer to cash the ace of hearts and take two more heart tncks with the queen and jack That left him with just two spade which he happily conceded to the defenders. What South did was to increase his trump tncks to six by using two of his trumps as ruffers and then scoring four high trumps Added to four heart tricks and the ace of this brought his total to eleven.

The oxygen we use up is recycled continuously by the plant world There is a carbon cycle that helps to maintain all liv- ing things. And there is the stupendous water without which life on the land would be impossible At any given an es- timated cubic miles of water is being redistributed between the earth and the at- mosphere This seems like a staggering amount of water to be hoisted miles above the especially when we realize that each cubic mile of water is enough to fill a mile- mile-square tank Yet this is merely one thousandth part of one per cent of the earth's total water supply. The stupendous recycling operation is possible because of the particular properties of water itself At average earth water is a li- quid But only slight temperature changes are re- quired to change it to its gas- eous vapor state or to its frozen solid state Gaseous water expands and rises to mingle with the at- mosphere. Liquid and solid moisture in the atmosphere is pulled down by the earth's gravity Hence the change from one state to another plays a key role in the water cycle. On a summer's an acre of corn adds gallons of vapor to the air and the entire plant world contributes countless tons But most of the vapor evaporates from the water that covers three- quarters of our watery world. This major operation occurs because water molecules have a built-in attraction for each other plus a tendency to use heat to move faster. In liquid they cling in strings and slither around following the leader With a little more they move fast enough to break their mutual bonds and leave home as separate molecules of vapor. Naturally the energy for this global operation is supplied by the beaming sun It sheds larger or smaller quotas of radiation on the sur- face of the globe The surface warms the air above it and the warm air evaporates vapor from liquid water. Obviously the seas and rivers do not have to boil. But a skinny layer of surface molecules gets enough solar heat to speed fast enough to evaporate. Once the vapor is ruled by the weathery atmosphere Cooler air converts it into misty clouds or frozen ice crystals Winds transport it for miles and miles gravity tugs the heavy moisture back to the surface as rains and snows Questions asked by chil- dren of Harald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.
