Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, June 22, 1970 THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Groivth Rule Of Thumb Is Fairly Accurate By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Q - My daughter. 2, Is 38 Inches tall. Does this mean that she will be 6 feet 4 when she quits growing? In a recent col-unrn you said that female hormones would curb a girl's growth. Is there any disadvantage to this treatment? A - The rule of thumb used to predict adidt height is fairly accurate. I know of no way to curb your daughter's growth except by giving her hormones (hydrocortisone, pituitary or estrogens) when she is 10 or 11 years old. Such treatment, the results of which cannot be guaranteed, should be given only on the advice of her physician when that age is reached. Estrogens must be given only with the full understanding tliat they will cause enlargement of the breasts and uterus, early onset of menstruation and premature stimulation of sexual desire. Q - T am a girl, 13. When T go on a roller coaster at the fail- I get dizzy. What can I do to get over this? A - If you go on a roller coaster you are less likely to get dizzy if you lean fonvard and try to push the car to make it go faster. Persons who are fearful and try to hold back mass all the fim and wind up feeling terrible. If this doesn't work end, if your doctor approves, you might try an antihistamine 20 or 30 minutes before you go on the ride. Q _ When our son, 13, was 8V2 an eye examination at school revealed that he was not seeing with his right eye. A specialist diagnosed it as amblyopia. For a year he wore a patch on his good eye to strengthen the weak one. Then, for a year, he had eye exercises but he has shown no real improvement. Will the amblyopic eye remain healthy except for the loss of vision or is there danger of infection? A - This letter illustrates the tragedy of not discovering "lazy eye" blindness before a chUd enters school. If treatment is not started before age 6, it wiU not help. The amblyopic eye is normal in appearance. It cannot be helped by glasses. Fortunately, its sus-ceptibihty to disease is not increased. Q - I have heai-d that sulfa drugs suppress the production of red and white blood cells. Could Grantrisin given to a child cause leukemia? A - No. In leukemia there is an overproduction of white blood cells. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON PEANUTS TUESDAY.

If you are now in a down-spiral, it will increase until you make AP Newsman Ordered To Leave Peru LIMA (AP) - Peru's military government ordered expulsion from the country of Associated Press bureau chief Joe Mc-(Jowan Jr., Friday. A resolution passed by the council .of ministers said the action was taken because of an "unreal and offensive description" of Lima that presented the city as prospering because of the arrival of foreign aid missions to help Peru recover from its disastrous earthquake. The council resolution apparently referred to a story by McGowan saying that major hotels were filled by foreign relief workers and reporters, and that souvenir shops and shoe-shine boys were doing a thriving business. Glee In Tory Ranks Over Election Result OTTAWA {CP) - There is op-tiraisitic glee in the Progressive Conservative party over the results of the British general election-and it's not confined to any particular affinity for the (Conservatives in Britain. Rather, it's because cf the way the public opinion polls booted the job. And one of the most comforting conclusions federal Conservatives here can reach is that opinion polls shouldn't be taken too seriously. Already, some Conservatives here are drawing parallels with British CJonservative Leader Edward Heath and Canadian Conservative Leader Robert Stan-field. If the polls were so wrong in wntmg Mr. Heath's obituary, badly off, notably in 1957 when they say, perhaps they are the Liberal government of Louis Prime Minister Trudeau in terms of popular support. It's certain that in the next federal election-eitter next year or in 1972-the Conservatives will get a good deal of ammunition from the way the Brit-i^ polls handled things this time, providing, of course, they Strong Emotions Can Cause Death WINNIPEG (CP) - Death can be caused by strong emotions, including the emotions which follow triumph, success or a happy ending, an American psychiatrist said here. Dr. George Engel, of the University of Rochester said there are examples of this phenomenon in medical literature, including two men and two women who died during reunions after long separations. Dr. Engel told delegates to the annual meeting of the Canadian Psychiatric Association here that sudden death under circumstances such as acute Restiiction On Families Is Forecast PORT ELGIN, Out. (CP) -By the end of the century, laws will be passed to restrict Canadian families to two children each, environmental expert Ian Burton said today. He told a conference on pollution that each person living in Mghly-industrifllized societies uses and pollutes 50 times as much of the earth's supply of land, air and water as an inhabitant of a less-developed coun- tn-. "TJm's means that adding one Cainadian Lo the world's population is as serious as adding 50 Indians ot Africans or Chinese," said Dr. Burton, director of environmental science and engineering at the University of Toronto. "Ecologists seriously doubt that the world can support more North Americans with rapidly rising levels of consumption, but the notion of bringing the rest of the world to our standard blows the mind," he said. The conference is sponsored by the Ontario Federation of Labor, National Farmers' Union and the Ontai-io Teachers' Federation. equally wrong here in saying St. Laurent was overtaken by Mr. Stanfield is badly trailing John Diefenbaker's C^nserva- "...... ~ � lives. But since then, say many Ckmservatives, the credibility of poUs seems to have been re-es-tablished with Canadians. Should Mr. Stanfield still trail Mr. Trudeau in the next preelection polls, they hope the British results will give them the psychological advantage. In any event, there is no doubt that Conservative spirits have been buoyed. In the Commons Friday, Mr. Diefenbaker said that "all of us are in good feelings, having regard to what happened ia the land of the Heath." And outside the chamber, party members were eagerly gobbling up the latest election returns. The party's lobbies were filled mOi excited talk about Mr. Heath's stunning victory, and knots of MPs stood around discussing how the results could change the entire complexion of things in Canada. BAD RECORD Dartmouth and Massachusetts began football rivah7 with a scor-!less tie in 1902. Since then Dartmouth has won 18 straight times. grief, personal danger, fear, or loss of self-esteem, can stem either from acute excitation or where the "motivation to go on living has been lost." In medical literature "intense fear of terror are widely regarded as conducive to sudden death," he said. The emotions of joy or triumph would seem to contradict this, he said. But joy or triumph involve sudden intense excitement, and reunions after long separations often are preceded by shorter periods of anxious and often painful waiting and anticipations. "These circumstances . . . are conducive to the reawakening of disturbed memories and fantasies' of past losses and threats and hence may, momentarily at least, evoke giving-up feelings." He said other cases may involve the achievement of long sought - after goals, after wluch a person feels let down and consequently ^ves up. He cited examples of a ."iS-year - old man who dropped dead when he met his 88-year-old father after a 20 - year separation. The father dropped dead soon after. "A 56 - year - old man collapsed and died while receiving congratulations for scoring his first hole-in-one and a 75-year - old man who hit the twin double foi- $1,683 on a $2 bet died as he was about to cash his winning ticket," lie said. Sudden death may also occur after danger passes. Dr. Engel cited tlie example of a 71 - year - old man who died while talking with firemen after they reported a false alarm at his home, and a 55-year-old man who collapsed and died moments after he walked uninjured from a train week. Accounts of people being "scai'ed to death" are much more frequent, with 43 deaths reported in this category. Included were three men who died while being questioned in the courtroom. A 35 - year - old man accused of robbei-y told his lawyer was "scared to death" then collapsed and died, Engel said. In the 43 cases, all were a.s-cribed to heart attacks, but in 26 cases there was no corroborating evidence. Dr. Engel said. are still trailing in Canadian poUs. There have been occasions in Canada when the polls were sweeping changes. If you are prayer . fully seeking the way upward, this year will bring self-fulfjDment. Material matters are of no serious concern. Today's natives approach life with equanimity. Most are very nice people to know. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Your mind is open, and big ideas may be close to the truth. You have a rare opportunity to do something unusual that improve^ your home. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Delay and confusion arouses your spirit and your will to achieve. Your performance goes well and calls for a bit of a celebration tonight. GEMINI (May 21 . June 20): Look for more information during the morning. If the time is wasted, it's still no loss. The afternoon and evening can be successful and interesting. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): SomeUiing you learned some time ago from someone now far away crops up in discussions and is very helpful. Make important decisions later in the day. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Your projects now attract attention and perhaps active support from important people. Give everybody plenty of time, close your deals later in the day. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The less you say today the less likely you are to encomiter misunderstandings. What you do say should be to the p^int, in plain language. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Find out more details before you accept the glowing reports of the morning. The story is quite different and more truthful by the time evening arrives. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 . Nov. 21): Your ideas on family affairs don't turn out to be very practical because of change and growth beyond your expectations. Stick with that which proves useful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22.Dec. 21): Family matters are turbulent, perhaps noisy. By the end of the day some issues will be settled. The latter part of the day is important for trouble shooting, error-correction. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan 19): Watch and learn today rather than plunge into expert mental activities. Your friends are aU on the move now-try not to let contacts lapse. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): At the present your tendency is to jump to conclusions. Circumstances are not so readily evaluated this morning. Be systematic and thorough. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): The day is full of secret deals which are likely to defeat them selves. Stay away from need less involvem e n t, disregard gossip. You have plenty to say later. 1970, Newsday, Inc. I RNALLV FOUND OUT WHAT THAT 5TliPlPPKD'5 NAME 15,..
