Dear Dr. Lamb I read your columns regularly and find them very interesting and informa- tive. There are two food items in which I am very interested: the dry cream substitutes used for coffee creams, and pure virgin olive oil, extracted from olives, used for salads. I would like to know the cholesterol and saturated fat content in each in comparison to using half and hah" coffee cream and corn oil for salads. Dear Reader Most of the j coffee whiteners or dry pow- der cream substitutes contain coconut oil. This has no choles- terol but it is very high in sat- urated fat. Ordinary half and half cream has less saturated fat than most artificial pow- der coffee whiteners. Inciden- tally, there are some liquid polyunsaturated cream substi- tutes available in some regions of the country but not every- where.

How bad is this? Will it shorten a person's life drastically? Can it be helped or controlled? 1 still have some swelling In doctor said I probably always would have. He gave me some blue and white capsules, also Zyloprim tablets. He said I would have to take the tablets the rest of my life. I have never seen anything about this in any of your ar- ticles. Although I did read the cne about gout. So, if there is anything else you can tell us about uric acid, I would appre- ciate it. Should a person be on some kind of a diet' Dear Reader Lots of peo- ple with a relatively high uric acid level live to ripe old age. Many women have high uric acid levels and never de- velop gout or gouty arthritis at all. There is some overlap be- tween what is considered the normal range of blood uric acid and the range of uric acid level seen in patients with gout. In any case, if you al- ready have had gout of the big toe and have high uric acid TUMBUEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan Chic Young my big toe from gout and the level, clearly, you have gout. My column which you read on the subject, then, applied to the problem. Zyloprim tablets are used to block the body's action in pro- ducing uric acid. Most of the uric acid present in the blood is caused by an over produc- tion of uric acid in cells' daily normal metabolic function, spe- cifically in protein metabolism. By blocking the production or uric acid within the cells with Zyloprim. the uric acid level is lowered. This helps prevent the formation of uric acid crystals in the joints, responsible for gout, also helps to decrease the amount of uric acid eliminated in the urine and in this way helps to prevent the formation of kidney stones and damage which can occur in patients with gout. It is a very good medicine and is used common- ly.

The latter was toned in ca the same wavelength however, and East's went for naught. The jump overcall of three clubs by West is preemptive and designates a good suit of at least six-card length and a maximum of approximately M.high card points. North and South were not to be de- nied, however, and they ar- med at their five diamond contract without undue pres- West opened the king of and East promptly ov- ertook with the ace. In view his partner's jump over- can, it seemed highly im- probable to East that a sec- and round of the suit would net go thru, and he anted avail himself of the only op- portunity he could count on to make a play for his part- ner. East accordingly shifted to a spade at trick two. South put in the ten of spades from his hand and West won the trick with the jack. There was no apparent reason to return the suit, so West shifted back to the queen of clubs which declarer ruffed. South had paid close atten- tion to the defensive strategy and he promptly drew some enlightened conclusions. H East had the king of spades, for example, it did not ap- pear likely that he would so anxious to overtake his partner's king of clubs in order to play a spade. shift appeared to be based on a desire to promote his SIM'S holding in spades by leading thru the declarer, up to dummy's weakness. Declarer decided to proceed on the assumption that the spade finesse would fail. He proceeded to run the entire- trump suit, followed by three rounds of hearts ending up in the North hand. As the last heart was led, dummy was left with the ten of clubs and a spade. De- clarer retained the ace-queen of spades. West held the jack of clubs and the king-five of spades with one discard to make. He gave up the five at spades in order to guard club suit. A spade ted from dummy and South played the ace. When the> king dropped, declarer's queen became the fulfilling trick. Stalagmites Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to David McDonnell, age 10, of St. Catharines. Ontario, for his How are stalagmites formed? Stalagmites are created in nature's own underground art galleries. In certain cool moist caves, they rise up from the floors in graceful stone stalag- 1 mites, with pointed tops. In the same caves we also find stalac- tites, hanging like icicles from the ceilings. The stone walls are sculptured with artistic fes- toons and elaborate scroll- work. These handsome stone struc- tures usually are found in caves that have formed in thick de- posits of limestone. They also occur in dolomite, which is metamorphic limestone, chang- ed by tremendous heat and pressure. Both these rocks con- tain forms of calcium, soft min- erals easily dissolved in water. Usually the climate of the re- gion is fairly moist and rain water continuously seeps through the ground. !in opposite pairs from the same Inside, the caves are cool j kafc in the ceiling. In time, and damp. Usually they are a stalactite and a stalagmite mineral is deposited as solid calcite. The water drips and trickles, forming tiny streams and thin films, somewhat like slowly melting snows. As it evapor- ates, molecules of solid calcite are deposited on the walls, floors and ceilings. Layer by patient layer they build the sculptured formations that de- corate the interiors of lime- stone and dolomite caves. These formations are called dripstone because they are created by the dripping water that deposits them and also models their shapes. Films of moving water create the fes- tooned scrolls on the cave walls. Trickles from the roof build the spiked stalactites that hang like stony icicles from the ceilings. Some of the drips from above land on the floors. As this moisture evaporates, it deposits a pile of solid calcite that forms a spikey stalagmite. V As a cave grows older, its stalactites from the ceiling and its stalagmites from the floor grow longer.

As it seeps, drips and trickles through the limestone type rocks, it dissolves mole- cules of calcite and carries them away. Often the bedrock is submerged completely under water that erodes deep cracks and enlarges them to form tunnels and gigantic holes A system of caves is hollowed into bec'roc-k This basic building job changes when the ground water drains away and air enters the hollcvs. Ssepiag rams continue to drip-drip through walls and ceilings. Among other dis- solved minerals, they carry cal- cium bicarbonate. As this water trickles into the caves, it is ex- posed to the air and some of it evaporates. A m g other things, it releases carbon di- oxide which reacts with dis- solved calcium compounds to form calcium carbonate. This may meet and form a single column. Some caves are decor- ated with groups of handsome columns from floor to ceiling. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765. HuDtington Beach.
