Be ready for late- in-the-year challenges, ab- rupt changes which require original approaches. Relation- ships need your deliberate sttntion all year. Today's natives are versatile, quently unconventional. fre. Any promise made now tends ARIES (March 21 April Bring in anyone who can con- tribute to group effort today. Much loose advice is offered from all sides by people who lack insight. TAURUS (April 20 May LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. dear calories do count Dear Dr. Lamb I read re- cently that if you were on a crash diet program for several weeks, whsre your food intake and calorie intake is extreme- ly low, your body becomes attuned to burning pure calor- ies. Then as soon as you begin to eat normally, regardless of what you eat, you gain weight. By normally I do not metn going back to your old eating habits, because I know that would make you gain ail over again. Also. I would like to know if calories are really important or not. For example, does a piece of cake and a piece of lean meat, containing the same amount of calories, have the same effect on your body as far as maintaining your weight is concerned. Dear Reader Whenever you sharply decrease your ca- Icrie intake the body metabo- lism shuts down, decreasing the calories used and the rate of weight loss. This is nature's mechanism of enabling man to survive when food is not abun- dant. If you are lost in the Arc- tic, this can be rather handy. It's not so handy if you are dieting to lose weight. When the metabolism is down the energy level is zilch. To counteract this, if you want to lose weight, it is bet- ter to maintain an active phy- j Eical program which stimulates your metabolism. For a good sensible weight control program you should de- crease the calories only a rea- soanble amount and increase your physical activity. This will enable you to eat a good, normal healthy diet while los- ing weight slowly. You need to develop nutrition habits to keep the excess fat off, not just simply to lose it. Now, about regaining weight after you've stopped the diet. This is particularly apt to hap- pen on the low carbohydrate diets, such as the recently popularized Atkins' diet or its preceding versions, such as Teller's "Calories Don't the erroneously called Air Force Diet or Jlayo's Diet. Much of the irutal weight loss on low carbohydrated diets is from loss of water. The kid- neys lose needed body salt and water, not just fat. This some- times causes weakness. When you resume eating a more nor- mal diet to include important carbohydrate sources, such as vegetables, cereals, raw fruits, or even milk, the body chemis- try returns to normal level, and regain the normal salt and water. This rapid weight loss that's been evident on the scales, and sometimes evident in ths haggard, sunken face, is quickly replaced. The effect is much the same as watering a plant that hasn't gotten water for several weeks if it sur- vived. Yes, calories do count. There is ao magic that enables one to avoid the principle that what you weigh depends on the ca- lories in (food) balanced against the calories out (acti- It's just like a checking account, and you either have to lose the- calories through the digestive tract (as may occur with an illness such as an in- or else you I to become expensive later.

Measuring raindrops Andy sends a compelte 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Janet Kenkel, age 12, of Le Mars, Iowa, for her question: How many drops are in an inch of rainfall? This poses a problem some- what like trying to measure the contents of a swimming pool with a spoon a very small spoon. No doubt one member of the family can state the contents in gallons. This person would likely be the one who watches the meter and pays the water bills. Other family members know the depth of water at both ends, plus the width and length of the pool Rainfall, naturally, descends from the clouds in drops. But the drops may be whopping splashers, fine misty drizzles or some size between these soggy giants and midgets What's more, a shower may shed just a few big splashers or just a few GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

To many players it becomes a question of mere- ly selecting the longest and strongest suit. The obvious choice is not always the best one, however, as there are other considerations which may take precedence. To- day's hand, taken from a re- cent tournament, presents an interesting case in point. The first round of bidding was more or less normal. When South made a free bid of one heart over East's one diamond overcall, North's thoughts naturally turned to slam, and he flashed the sig- nal by cue-bidding the oppo- nents' suit. His two diamond call is unconditionally forc- ing to game and permits him to indulge in a relaxed investigation without fear that partner will drop him somewhere along the way. _ When South revealed club fit, many Norths were satisfied to play the contract in that suit and it became merely a question of the lev- el to be reached. Some were content to settle for a small slam which they were able to claim shortly after the opening lead was made. Oth- ers went all the way to sev- en clubs and suffered disap- pointment when they learned that there was no way to get rid of declarer's losing spade. Only one North-South pair reached the maximum con- tract of seven hearts, and this was the result of further exploration. When South bid three clubs, North contented himself with a simple raise to three hearts. When Soath merely returned to four clubs, North was still not certain how far to go, and he made a cue-bid of four spades to elicit further infor- mation. South's bid of five hearts was most revealing. It cleared up in North's mind any lingering doubt as to the solidity of the hearts. The only remaining hole was North's ten of spades. If South had five hearts, a dis- card becomes available on the long card in that suit. However, if South has only four hearts, it might be es- sential to utilize the club suit for discards. In the interest of safety, therefore, North bid the grand slam in hearts. There was nothing to ffie play of the hand. South ruffed one diamond in dum- my, drew trumps, and rou- tinely took 13 tricks for a top score on the deal. misty sprinkles. Another down- pour may deluge down zillions of whoppers or a fine misty rain that goes on for days and days. To a weatherman, the day's rainfall means the depth of wa- ter that falls on the ground, as if none sinks down or drains away. Obviously he cannot depend on drops that measure anywhere from, five to five thousand to the inch. He sets up scientific equipment to trap samples of falling rain in se- lected spots. He measures the depth of this captured rainfall I in inches and fine fractions of j inches. i. An amateur can take a rough- and-ready measurement wrf-h a ruler and an open-topped can. Place the can in a sheltered spot, protected from gusty breezes. When the sun comes out, use the ruler to measure the depth of the water in the can. Naturally a larger can depth of rainfall is the same as in a smaller one. Suppose your trapped rainfall is one inch deep. It would not help to measure the contents of your make-shift rain gauge j in drops either large or small ones. This would not include the rain that fell all over your back yard and perhaps over the whole county. A weather- man solves this problem by estimating the depth of water in many sample rain gauges, placed throughout a large area. His estimate is the depth of rain that fell. It is possible to estimate the weight of each inch of rainfall over large areas and these fig- ures are downright stunning. A long day's downpour can dump an inch of rainfall over several states. In this case about 113 tons of water falls on every acre of city and farm- land- One inch of rainfall on every square mile weighs 300 tons. And one inch of rain- fall on your entire home state of Iowa weighs more than four billion tons.

Druggists use a more precise drop measure- ment called the "minim." There are 480 minim drops in an ounce. You could multiply I minims, ounces and tons to find the number of drops in an inch of rainfall over, say an acre. But the weatherman's way of measuring the depth of rain- fall in inches is neater and less complicated. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.
