Ryan I UNPERSTANPY6R COMPOSING AumETOM-TOMTWEjLOTSA LUCK! Why bears hibernate Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Chria Sargente, age 12, of Staten Island, New York, for his question: Why is it necessary for bears to hibernate? Chris reasons that a bear's shnggy overcoat should be able to keep him warm through the winter. It certainly some bears do indeed stay up and around through the cold season, without shivering or sneezing. Hence, It is logical to search for another reason for winter hibernation. The answer is groceries just what you would expect from this born moocher. A bear's assortment of teeth enables him to dine on both meat and vegetables and his digestive system is adjusted to cope with a mixed diet. You would expect such a large ani- mal to plan at least one large meal for himself every day Sometimes he does indulge in an enormous banquet. But he is by nature, a snacker, very font of samling a wide variety of this and that, in small helpings This sort of gourmet tasting keeps him busy throughout to day. To satisfy his choosey an petite, he wanders over a wide range, never missing a chance to track home a wild bee ane indulge his sweet tooth with feast of honey. During thi spring, summer and fall hii world is a free supermarket teeming with samples of his fa vorite groceries. Chipmunk and small furry creatures scul tie among the stones, wil blackberries and blueberrie hang temptingly on the bushes a few birds lay tasty, eggs i nests on the ground. In spring tantalizing salmon swim in th streams. However, this sort of gourmet ving comes to an end in the ate fall. Before his supermar- et closes for the season, the ear lakes advantage cf the ate berry season and gains nougli fatty poundage to last im for several months. After 11, he is rat the type of char- acter to make do with meager lickings. Besides, he would ust as soon not have to cope vith frosty snows and chilly oes So he shuffles off to find a cozy corner, perhaps in a small- sh cave or hollow tree. Thera ,e gets comfortable and goes o sleep. Actually he does not sink into the deep coma of hib- ernation. Once in a while he wakes up to go to the bath- 'oom. Sometimes he fails to .uck himself back in bed and a blizzard may pile a blanket of snow on liis sleeping back. The female bear gives birUi ii mid-winter. You can bet yom boots this devoted mother does not sink into a deep sleep when her precious cub needs her ten der, loving care. So much for the hibernation of a bear in the wild. However these born moochers know tha his human acquaintances cai provide him with his favorite snacks summer and winte This may explain why bear that live in zoos seldom take a loog winter sleep, even in ex tremely cold climates. Appar ently, if food is plentiful, a bear's coat makes the worst o the winter bearable. Questions asuea u? cnrMicn o! Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

Soulh's jump rebid of three spades is forcing to game af- ter North's two-over-one re- Eponse. When the latter trot- ted out a second suit by bid- ding four clubs, South checked hack for aces via Blackwood. The live no trump bid announces thai the partnership has all the lop controls. Had North shown a sufficient number of kings, it was South's inten- tion to go all the way. When Ws partner turned out lo be kingless, however, he was obliged lo settle for a small clam in spades. West opened Ihe eight cf d i ivrn o n d s. an effective for with any older lead, declarer has lime to set up North's clubs for tffQ discards. The deuce o[ dia- monds was played from dummy and East put up Ihe jack to win the trick. l Withost a moment's delib- eration, East made the natu- ral shift to a heart and South played the ace. Trumps were drawn with lour pulls as Notlh discarded hearts and clubs. A diamond was led to the ace and then the queen was returned. East followed with the six, declarer slutted, the queen ol hearts and West out. Another dia- mond brought forlh East's Jting which was ruffed in Ihe closed Jiand. The ace of clubs put North in lo cash the fen of diamonds on which South slutted his remaining club. He claimed the rest wilh good trumps, having lost one diamond trick. East was in position lo de- feat Ihe slam by returning a diamond at trick two. Altho (his temporarily sacrifices -a trick, it effectively prevents Ihe establishment of the suit. ]f South overtakes the nine ol diamonds with dummy's ten to lead a third round, he cannot ruff wilh Ihe nine of spades without subjecting himself to an overruff. If he Irumps with Ihe jack, on tha other hand, ten be- comes established as an winner. If South wins the diamond return in his 4iand at (rick three with the nine, in order lo draw trumps, it is Pre> sumed tha! he will enter dummy with the ace ol cluhs to cash the ace of diamonds. When the suit does not divida evenly. He may discard a club from his hand and then resort to the heart linesse. When Ihis fails, he is set by cue trick. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. her blood L-essure normal? Deal' Dr. Lamb My young- r sister on the West Coast had blood pressure of 131 over 84. Icr doctor said the maximum vas 130 over 80 and if she idn't get immediate treatment he would die. She convinced me to get a check-up and my blood pressure was 136 over 86. My doctor said it was fine, that he maximum was 140 over 90, jut it tended to creep up in a person my age. He said 1 shouldn't gain weight and it the pressure got higher we would lave to start treating it. Any opinions or comments, please? Dear Reader The official opinion of the American Heart Assn. and the American Medi- cal Assn. is that a blood pres- sure of 140 over 90 or below is normal. I can add to this from personal experience that there ire a large number of healthy young Air Force pilots will jlocd pressures higher than 13( over 80 who are flying aircraf today and a few astronauts. am unaware of any qualifier, leart specialist who (eels that 130 over 80 is abnormal. Blood pressure varies from lime to time. It can be sharply elevated during the anxiety of a medical examination, only t subside to much lower limiL immediately thereafter. F o this reason, most doctors wil prefer to have more than on blood pressure reading in a var iety of settings before decidm what its significance really is High River youths die in crash HIGH HIVER (CP) Greg ry York Blayney, 17, and Bea rice Cragg, 18, both of Hig liver, were killed Sunday in vo-car collision east of thi outhern Alberta community.

Dear Dr. Larnl) used to exercise 15 to 20 minutes right >eforc going to bed each night lecause I fell asleep faster, fell letter in the morning and seem o have had more energy and >e more alert the next day. Then I read somewhere that exercise at that time is not good 'or you, so I quit altogether. Other times are not as conven- ient.) I have decided lo get a medical opinion. Do you think exercise at night before going to bed is harmful? I am a 17-year- old girl. Dear Reader Of course not. Some people do not like to exercise at lhat time hecause it energizes them and they feel awake when they would like tc feel drowsy and go to sleep. That apparently was not your problem. Other individuals who eat large, heavy meals, partic- ularly those who have preced- ed their meals with a couple of cocktals, seldom want to exer- cise at that time. It is true that individuals have health problems, particu- larly heart disease, are better off to do whatever exercise they are able lo do before meals rather than after meals. Otherwise, there should be no reason why a person could not do his exercises just before go- ing to bed. Each person often develops his own routine and the most important thing about exercise is to follow a proper program, which means enough, but not too much, and do it reg- ularly. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) I HEAR YOU TALKING TO THE BIROS? BEETLE BAILEY-Ey Mort Walker LI'L ABNER-By Al Capp Demolishing buildings is hazardous profession CALGARY (CP) Two dem- jlition experts, one who heads lis own firm in Alberta, say de- stroying buildings is more haz- ardous than construction work. But with the added danger comes a greater challenge for Bill Wearmbuth of Calgary and Dick Laws of Los Angeles. And there is always the chance they will realize the greatest dream ol all demolition ery in an old building of a cache at money, enabling them to re- tire immediately. "It's something you wouldn't shout Mr. Laws said. "Thcre'd be too many people after yom; finds." However, the superintendent for the Cleveland Wrecking Co. of Ohio fondly remembers his best recovery during a job in San bottles of whisky. He also recalls a letter post- marked the White House during the administration of Abraham Lincoln. FOUND EJECTION SEAT "Calgary is young and not the best place in the world for find- ing unusual said Mr. Wearmouth, "but off-beat things surface occasionally. "Like this old jet fighter ejec- tion scat. We found it hanging up in a dilapidated house down- town. Apparently some kids were using it as furniture." "Most of the buildings we knock down arc not of a stand- ard of construction of those going up said the U.S. superintendent. "Some of them have been ren- ovated so often over the years that you wouldn't believe what we find when we start stripping away the veneer a post miss ing here, a post missing there. 'It's downright scary some- limes." Mr. Laws, 55, said his com pany once knocked down a 50- storey building. "A building that size would b no trouble at all if it stood by it self in a field somewhere. You'd just set a charge and blow it up "Some of our buildings ar< knocked down that way, but most are on busy downtown streets and we're not even al- lowed to disrupt pedestrian traf- fic in taking them down."
