What is lifespan of cancer patient? Dear Lamb My hus- band passed away recently from advanced cancer of the lower left lung. The doctor re- moved all of the left lung and had to scrape the cancer from his heart. The doctor operated on a Tuesday and my husband was up and walking on Friday. One week after the operation, the doctor gave him a cobalt treatment, and three days later, he died. What chance did he have of living or how long could he have lived? Dear Reader No one can answer that question in any in- dividual case exactly. There have been some astonishing ex- amples of people who have lived much longer than usual even though they have very advanced malignant disease. A person with, cancer of, the lung which has already spread as your letter suggests, has only a minimal chance of living very long afler the operation. This does not mean that all cancers of tha lung are hope- less. A number of them have been detected early enough to result in a cure for five or more years. Cancer of the lungs Is one of the most common cancers in men and 90 per cent occur in cigarette smokers. Individuals who are heavy smokers are the ones who most often develop cancer of the lungs. There are some types of cancer of the lungs which are relatively rare and can occur in Individuals who are non-smokers. But es- sentially, the non-smoking pop- ulation rarely has cancer of the lungs. Dear Dr. Lamb As an in- dividual who has had his larnyx removed, I was particularly in- terested in one of your columns describing a procedure for fa- shioning a voice box from the skin of the patient. This subject is of intense interest lo many individuals who are struggling along to achieve adeptness in the use of the esophageal speech, or in the use of a buz- zer, can one have such surgery done and how long a period of hospitalization would be involved? Dear Reader I have re- ceived many letters about this. The Initial reports about the procedure stated that it was done by Doctors J. Simon Mc- Grail and David O. Oldfield, To- ronto Medical School and lesley Hospital, Toronto, Can- ada. The operation is said to produce a good quality voice by fashioning a voice box from the patient's own skin. To find out more information talk to your own doctor about it and let him contact Drs. Mc- Grail and Oldfield by writing to the Toronto Medical School, To- ronto, Canada; or he may have some other source of additional information. Although the ori- ginal procedure was credited lo the two Canadian doctors, most new surgical procedures that have real promise are ra- ther quickly adopted by other surgeons.

Had he done so, how- ever, the partnership would have recorded a deficit on the deal because of the hor- rendous division in clubs. That very same adversity should, apparently, have de- feated the five club contract How South was able to over- corns nature's stymie pro- vides the basis for our story, West opened the jack rf hearts and the king was played from dummy. An ex- amination of the combined holdings apparently added up to 11 tricks seven cluts, one diamond, two hearts, and cne spade. What distribution could possibly upset tnia inventory? Tha obvious an- r. ver only if one of the cpponsnts had all four miss- ing (rumps. The next ques- tion was whether South could do anything to cope wltn so adverse a division. After tome study, declarer concluded that he could it and a 4-0 club break, pro- vided that East had all clubs, To test the rituatiori iw led a small crab to the king at trick two and, sure enough, West out, discarding diamond. The ace of diamonds was cashed and a diamond ruffed with UK deuce of clubs. De- clarer led e spade from his hand and ducked it around to East's eight. The latter re- turned tbe queen of hearts to dislodge North's ace. Anoth- er diamond was trumped with tha three of clubs, fol- lowed by a spade to the ace and a spade ruff with the four of clubs.

Light bulb heat Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of fchs Merit Siu- denls Encyclopedia to An- drew Michael Ciarta, age 11, of Enid, Oklahoma, for his question: How is heat produced In a light bulb? Light bulbs arc made to shed Ight, which they do. But they also create enough heat to make a lighted bulb too hot to handle. This is a nuisance and also very wasteful. Both light and heat are forms of energy. The heat from a bulb is wasted energy and we would like to convert it all into light. Fireflies can create light with- out heat, but so far our scien- tists have been unable, to fig- ure out how those pretty little beetles manage to do it, A light bulb, naturally, uses electricity and the current is created by moving electrons. These negative particles of matter are infinitesimally small and they move incredibly fast. They also pace together in astronomical numbers. The light from a glowing bulb is actually a traffic jam that oc- curs when armies of jogging electrons must squeeze through a narrow bottleneck. Their countless collisions create enough heat to make the metal filament glow. An electric wire Is a double strand of copper. It conducts the current from the generator. Along the way there are numer- our outltes where we can plug in and use the electric current. In AC, or alternating current, this is the energy of electrons Jogging back and forth in step, at so many times per second. They create energy through- out the circuit, but in the wires they have enough room lo move without many colli- sions. This smooth traffic ar- rangement changes when we plug in a light bulb. Then the electron traffic must detour through the tliin wire system inside the glass bulb. It enters anH departs through a pair of rather sturdy metal rods. But their tops are connected by a very tliin wire filament. The electron .traffic has to squeeze through this bottleneck. This results in countless collisions, which re- lease enough energy to heat up the filament. When we turn on the in less than a second the deloured electron traffic in the bottleneck makes the filament hot enough lo glow. Meter maids cause fuss at city hall CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) Fifteen meter maids hired by the city has created a furore by ticketing cars owned by pubb'c figures including Mayor Ralph Perk. The meter maids were hired with federal 'funds and began making their rounds yes- terday. In two days they have issued more than tickets which cost violators each plus extra costs for delayed pay- ments. The net total comes to in income wh ich equals the salary of one meter maid. Irene Harris, one of the met- er maids, ticketed the official automobile of Mayor Perk be- cause it was parked in front of City Hall in a "no parking zone. 7t is usually kept there for expediency. Cily Hall officials said Perk was out of town, but a police driver apparently had stopped momentarily at the mayor's of- fice on business. Miss Harris explained that she and other meter maids were told that no one should get preferential treatment. "I saw this car parked there and I ticketed it. It's that sim- ple." The maids have banded out tickets to cars of judges, bail- iffs, politicians and policemen. I BLONDIE-By Chic Young Hence, the bulb does not create heat as a byproduct. The light sheds is actually a byproduct of the heat in the filament. The numbers and speeds of the electrons involv- ed are fantastic. For example, suppose you switch on a read- ing lamp. You enlist armies of electrons, jogging back and forth at perhaps 60 times per second. About three billion-bil- lion of them jog through the wiring and crowd through the narrow filament in the bulb. There they jostle each other and release the heat that causes the glow that lights the This Is a crude way to light electric bulbs because so much energy is wasted in unwanted heat. But at present, we do not know how to separate this energy of heat and light. Re- searchers are striving to find a more economical way to produce light without heat. Meantime, the fireflies refuse to share their secret recipe for making cold light. Questions aSRea by chlTflioD of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

(CP) Andrew Cassidy found neces- sity to be the father of an in- vention for his dog which saves them both from embar- rassing situations. Mr. Cassidy, weary of em- barrassing situations with neighbors and friends, came up with a sort of portable first-of-its-kind washroom that looks like a walking stick or an odd-shaped golf club. The gadget is of simple de- sign. It consists of a two-foot long handle with a circular flange at the bottom with a cover that flips open with a cb'ck of a wrist. Attached to the flange is a plastic bag, held in place by a spring strap. "It's so simple to he said. "You just walk along with your dog on his leash and when he decides its time, you flip the lid and swing it under him." The bag is disposed on re- turning home. "There's no mess, no noth- he said. And no one needs to be embarrassed. His device is not on the market yet, but he has it pat- ented and "we're looking for someone who would be inter- ested in producing it and put- ting it on the market.1' Bridge results Ladln Wednesday Aflwnwn D.B.C.
