Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 UTHBR1DOE HMALO Monday, 4, IfTS Ask Andy Seedless trees Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Kelly Day, age 13, of Scarboro, Maine, for his question: Can a tree grow from a seed- Jess orange? If you plant a seedless orange, it cannot sprout a root or a shoot. It is attacked by bacteria and other micro-or- ganisms, by mites and various small dwellers in the soil. It soon becomes a pulpy mush and as it continues to decay, its complex molecules are broken apart into usable nutrients to feed other plants. However, there are various methods for duplicating plants without de- pending on seeds. Growers of seedless oranges use the graft- ins method. We are told that our future food supplies depend en how well we larn to work with the methods of nature. This same idea brings a bonus. We can improve on nature's best and even produce entirely new plants. One of these sophisti- cated results is the seedless orange. Usually it is a late season Valencia orange. And it may be called seedless, even though a few of these big, extra-meaty fruits do have a few seeds. All our fragrant, flavorsome oranges, of course, were de- veloped from wild types. Wild orange trees tend to bear stin- gy little fruits, often sour and stringy. But they have two ad- vantages. They can cope wizh the rigors of soil, climate and many diseases. And their stin- gy little fruits contain seeds. When they fall or get carried far afield by birds, some of the seed sprout and becomes more wild orange trees. Orange growers do not de- pend on seeds to grow the trees they want. Each fancy orchard tree is a grafted union of two trees, each with special qualities. The root, called the rootstock, comes from a sturdy wild or half wild tree, able to withstand hardship and resist common citrus diseases. The trunk and branches grow from a twig, or scion, taken from a tree that bears seedless or other superior oranges. There are several ways to graft the rcotstock and scion. But all of them depend on the slim layer of cambium under the bark of a woody trunk or twig. Cambium cells are multipliers that produce layers of new growth for the bark and for the wood. When the cambium of the scion and rootstock are held in contact, they grow together and form a union. This is grafting. The secret is to place the two cambium lay- ers in close contact, tie them securely and seal up the sur- gery. The rootstock for a seed- less orange may be a young bit- ter orange or a rough lemon, a sturdy lime or a wild sweet orange. Its sapling trunk is cut to a stump and some of the bark is cut and pee'ed to ex- pose the cambium. The scion twig or twigs are from a sel- ect tree bearing seedless oran- ges. The grafting grows togeth- er and in time, the sturdy rootstock supports the seedless orange treetop. It is possible to get some re- sults from an orange pip, even from the rare one we may fmd inside a seedless orange. With a lot of pampering, in suitable soil and warm sunny air, the seed may sprout. Its slow grow- ing twigs may grow handsome glossy orange leaves. In time it may bear a few IraDgrant blossoms that just might form stingy little fruits like tihoss that grow on the wild ances- tors of the rootstock.

Low blood sugar problems aired tear Dr. Lamb Your ser- ies on low blood sugar was great. Your suggestion about adding roughage to the meals was unknown to me but seems to be a real help. Sometime when you're dis- cussing it I wish you would con- sider the fact that some of these people with low blood sugar have a genuine intoler- ance for certain protein foods especially. Not all but some. Do you find this to be true and is it related to the general pic- ture or just a second compli- cating condition that one sees at times with the hypoglyce- mia? The intolerances are us- ually multiple and include milk, cereals, legumes, etc. Dear Reader I.receive a number of good letters from doctors, such as yourself. They contain important public infor- mation. I hope to include such information from other doctors when possible. It's certainly true that some of the people who suffer from low blood sugar attacks do not tolerate other foods well. Many of these people have multiple problems in absorption from the digestive tract. This can affect milk tolerance, particularly if they have trouble splitting and absorbing the double milk sugar lactose. It might be dif- ficult to establish that this was due to the proteins in some of the foods or whether they were associated with other elements that are common in certain protein foods such as the milk sugar in milk. It is also true that some people don't toler- ate soybean and soybean prod- ucts well and find them to be gas formers. Some individuals who have low blood Sugar also have stom- ach acidity with their attacks and generalized digestive com- plaints. As an initial approach, eliminating sweets, and in se- vere cases eliminating milk and cereals (both of which are Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER Ann paused at the door.

After the problem has been controlled, by indivi- dual experimentation one can find what foods are best tol- erated. Some individuals who do not tolerate cereals may have some intolerance to the gluten protein common in all cereals except rice and corn. tf K Dear Dr. Lamb I'm a 16- year-old female and have syphilis. I'm having treatment, and also started work at a V.D. clinic. The reason I'm j writing is because there are hundreds of people who have V.D. and don't know it. I would like to say if you think you might have V.D. go to your doctor, or better, go to a V.D. clinic, there are a lot of them. Venereal disease doesn't just get teens. V.D. doesn't play favorites. V.D. can infect at any age. The youngest person in our clinic ,vas 11 and the oldest was 53. I read an article about an 80-year-old man who got syphilis. If you're over 30 don't think you can't get V.D., because you can. Please print this letter be- cause I want everybody to know about this disease. Dear Reader Thank you for trying to help other people. You're absolutely right. V.D. does not play favorites in terms of age, religion, sex, race, wealth or social position. Hav- ing intimate relations with oth- ers, regardless of their social standing or other aspects, raises the possibility of vener-_ eal disease, unless both part-i ners are free of disease and are not engaging in activities with anyone else. I also agree with your recommendation that any- one who has any reason to think they might have venereal di- sease should seek an examina- tion from a V.D. clinic or through the county or cityi health office. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's new booklet on dlver- ticulosis, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Divcrticulosis" booklet. I'VE PUTTING CM SO MUCH WEISrlT LATELY T.
