Measuring calories Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encylopedia to Gail Horta, age 11, of W. Warwick, Rhode Island, for her ques- tion: How do they measure the cal- lories in different foods? A dieter's Calorie Chart looks as neat as a pin. The so-called fattening and non-fattening foods are listed in ounces, grams or cups. Beside each item is a number of calories in easy-to-figure round numbers. The picture looks perfect, but such precise neatness might make a person suspicious. Ac- tually, there are several rea- sons why the calorie value of this or that food sample can- not be precisely accurate. Calorie counting concerns the possible energy that digested foods can produce in the body. This is translated into units of heat. The calorie itself is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water one degree C. This unit, however, is not the one used by the calorie count- ing experts. They use the kilo- calorie, alias the Large Calorie, which equals small calor- ies. The unit used on a Calorie Chart should start with a capi- tal letter and it represents the heA required to raise a gram j cf water degrees C, or 1.000 grams by one degree. A heat unit is used because heat is a form of energy released when foods are digested by the body. These highly complex pro- cesses are far from fully un- derstood and they differ from person to person. Hence, it is not easy to figure precisely how much energy certain foods pro- duce for one and all. However, experts can mea-' sure the possible heat energy' that different foods are capable of yielding outside the body. This is done with an instru- ment called the calorimeter. It works because when different foods are burned they yield dif- ferent amounts of heat energy. This heat can be measured in calories or kilocalories. The simplest calorimeter is a copper pot containing a mea- sured amount of water. The heat content of the pot and the water are known. The sample substance is measured for weight and temperature, then) dunked into the pot. If it is hot.' it loses heat and if it is cold it gains heat. The loss or gain in temperature is measured in calories. A more complex calorimeter is a sturdy metal chamber called a bomb. The food sample is weighed and measured and placed inside. The bomb is dunked into water and an elec- tric current ignites the sample and burns it. This heats the bomb and the bomb heats the water. By mea- suring how much the tempera- ture of a given amount of wa- ter is raised by the burning of the sample, v.e can determine its calorie content. The system is not perfect but neither is it slipshod. It tells in j a general way, how much en- ergy the average person gets from certain amounts of differ- ent iocds. For people who need special diets, a Calorie Chart is essential. For ordinary folk it is a helpful guide to foods that tend to form surplus fat.

Altho seven spades is a sound undertaking, South's bidding technique leaves something to be desired. Tho his hand is worth 19 points counting high cards and dis- tribution, we approve of his simple forcing response of one spade after his partner opened the bidding with one diamond. An immediate jump shift should be avoided where responder lacks a fit for part- ner and does not have an in- dependent suit of his own. When North made a jump raise to three spades, South realized that a small slam was a sure thing and in or- der to assess the possibilities for going all the way, he embarked on a Blackwood inquiry. North's responses account for the missing aces, but one king was short It was reasonable for South to assume that one of these honors was the king of spades; had the other been the king of diamonds rather than of clubs, a grand slam might not have been a sound undertaking. South would have been bet- ter advised to cue bid the ace of hearts over three spades instead of using Blackwood. North would presumably re- ciprocate by showing first round control of clubs and thereby invite partner to show another feature him- self. This would provide North with the opportunity to indicate possession of the king of clubs by bidding six clubs. If he does so, South can carry on to seven spades with a measure of assurance. West opened the jack of diamonds and the ace was played from dummy. A study of the combined holdings re- vealed that several prospects were present. If trumps vided two-two, then declarer can ruff out his fourth club and third heart and claim 13 tricks. If the adverse spades are three-one, then the clubs may split evenly which -will establish declar- er's long card in that suit as a winner. If neither suit re- sponds favorably, then South can fall back on the heart finesse. There is another chance available and declarer took the first step toward testing this out by leading a small diamond from dummy at trick two and ruffing with the deuce of spades. Trumps were tested next by cashing the ace and queen, and West showed out on the second discarding a heart. Dummy was reentered with the king of clubs and another diamond was trumped with the five of spades. The ace of clubs put North in once more and the queen of dia- monds was ruffed with the jack of spades. The ace and king of hearts were cashed next and the jack was led and covered by West's queen. North trumped with the eight of spades and then the king of trumps pulled East's ten. Declarer's queen of clubs took the last trick. By reversing the dummy, South generated an extra trick In the trursp suit. In all he took three club tricks, the ace of diamonds and three diamond ruffs in his hand, two hearts and a heart ruff in dummy and three spada tricks. chest pains may be digestive Dear Dr. Lamb Can you help me? For four years now ]I have gone to several doctors and even had x-rays for my problem. They either say I'm too young for my symptoms, or they don't know what it is tnat's wrong. And the last one said he thought I was out of my mind. For the past four years I lave had severe chest pains. My age is 22 and I have had four children. I have been awakened with my chest ach- ing. It felt like it was being j crushed and I had hard time jreathmg. It seemed to start down in my back and its way up into my chest and ache clear into my back. The is so severe that I sometimes had to get a shot for the pain. The longest it has lasted is about five hours. I also have trouble in swallow- ing my food. I take small bites and chew it up as wen as pos- sible, it feels like sandpaper going down. The pain is Seated where my ribs come together. I have also had x-rays for this. I drank some chalky fluid and the doctor said he found noth- ing. This started about four years ago too. I have a lot of trouble with gas and acid. Doc- tor, I just don't think I can go through this much longer. I hope and pray you can help me. Thank you. Dear Reader Every chest pain is not a sign of heart dis- ease. From jour symptoms alone I would be inclined to think that you do not have heart disease at your age. Heart pain does not cause pain in the back and it is not associated with difficulty in swallowing. More likely you are having spasms of your diges- tive tract, including the eso- phagus. This can cause severe chest pain mimicking the pain of a heart attack. Muscles in the esophagus tube clamp down and act like a muscls cramp. You have a history of a lot cf digestive disturbances and since you've already had x- rays, I would presume that you don't have any major ob- struction. Anyone who has dif- ficulty in swallowing certainly must have a complete medical examination. Having done that, the best advice I can give you is to change your diet com- pletely. Eliminate all milk and al! milk products, including cheese, buttermilk or any foods that are made from milk, cof- fee, caffeinated or decaffeinat- ed tea, do not smoke, eliminate all alcoholic beverages if you use them, try to eat a diet made of very lean msat, such as baked chicken, broiled lean bsef or broiled fish. Avoid ex- cess use of breads. You can use some Jello, avoid spicy foods, and if you respond well to this procedure, later on you can add more cereals to your diet. If this regimen helps you a great deal I would suspect that you might have intolerance to some of these foods and you'll have to be careful about which ones you use. High on the list of aggravating factors in your case may well be milk, milk products and coffee. I feel fairly confident that your pro- blem is not heart disease and that most of it originates with difficulties in your digestive tract. Stress and tension mav also be an important factor. Try to minimize the amount of daily stress you have.
