Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD WodnMday, March e, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D, Dear Dr. Lamb I am 55 and have been a heart patient for the past year. I take Coumadin and other medicines. I walk a mile a day and do my housework. A year ago I weighted 155 pounds, now 140 pounds. I have to limit myself to 1000 calories per day to control my weight. What I need to know is, how many of these should be protein, carbohydrates and fat? I know I have to keep the fat low, but, I'm afraid I'm getting too much carbohydrate. I drink three glasses of one per cent skim milk a day and eat very few starchy foods. My carbohydrates come from vegetables, fruit, cereals, skim milk and one slice of bread a day. Dear Reader You are getting over 150 calories of protein, or about 40 grams, from your skim milk. The new 1973 Recommended Daily Dietary Allowances (from the National Research Council) for women over 51 is only 46 grams a day. So, you can see that you are getting about all the protein you need from the milk alone. I would think, though, that yon should get some additional protein from other sources, including some lean fish, poultry and meat. In general, though, I would guess you are already getting enough protein. The new values for protein requirements have actually been lowered on the basis of the most current research. I'm inclined to think that when you are trying to control your weight, it is wise to have a little more protein, but, otherwise, apparently most normal adults don't need more than 60 grams daily (240 calories of The rest of your calories can, and should, come from carbohydrates and a limited amount of fat. Vegetables, fruit, and cereal are fine foods. I would hope that your condition will permit you to be a little more active and a little less restrictive on your calories intake. A 1000 calories a day diet for a prolonged time is a marginal intake. I don't recommend this except under a doctor's supervision. For more information on keeping a balanced diet write to me, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10022, and ask for the "Balanced diet" booklet. Send 50 cents to cover costs. Dear Dr. Lamb Kindly tell me what causes the pressure when one has glaucoma? My doctor said no 'cataract. I am 75. He told me to use eye drops. Could there be cancer? Should I follow a diet? Dear Reader The eye normally produces a certain amount of fluid inside the eyeball all the time. It should gradually seep out. The balance between the amount of fluid formed and the amount that is leaked out determines how much pressure is inside the eye. Some people have a defect in the normal drainage mechanism from the eye. It can be caused by many different things. This causes the pressure to increase and results in glaucoma. You do not need to have cataracts to have glaucoma. They are not the same thing. Anyone who has glaucoma should follow his doctor's advice to the letter. It can make the difference between keeping your sight and losing it. No, glaucoma is not caused by cancer. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS March 6, 1974 Gen. Santa Ana's forces finally captured the Alamo at San Antonio, Tex., 138 years ago 13 days of bitter fighting. No survivors were permitted among the Texans and the victims included the legendary scouts Davy Crockett and James Bowie. A month later, Santa Ana was defeated at the battle of San Jacinto and Texas won independence.

A It t S WEST EAST Q J 9 7 4 4 A It 5 OQ7C2 OKJ84 SOUTH O AW 5 The bidding: Sort) West North East l Pass 2 Pan t Pass Past Pass Opening lead: Queen of you are playing a contract, you can never have too many high cards. The more you have, the greater care you should ex- ercise in the play. Dcrlarer failed to make full use his side's assets on this hand, and went down in a contract that should have been made. The bidding was routine. Once North raised hearts, Sooth's hand revalued to 21 points. Thus, even if North was slightly below strength for Iris raise to two hearts, the combined strength of the two hands was sufficient to contract for game. West led the queen of spades, and declarer cava- lierly covered with king. East won the ace and continued with the ten, ruffed by declarer. After drawing trumps in two rounds, ending in dummy, declarer tried the club fi- nesse. That and declarer was eventually forced to concede a diamond trick and another club for down one. Declarer blew the contract with wasteful play at the very first trick. Defending a suit contract, it is most un- likely that West would lead the queen of spades from a holding that included the ace. Therefore, there was no reason to sacrifice dummy's king of spades to the ace. Look at the difference if de- clarer plays low from dum- my at trick one. Best defense is for West to shift to a diamond. Declarer captures East's king with the ace, crosses to dummy with the nine of tramps and ruffs a spade. Dummy is raenterad with the ten of trumps for a second spade ruff, with most gratifying re- sults. The ace of spades is ruffed away, and dummy's king is esubasned for a club discard- Declarer concedes a diamond and then ruffs his remaining diamond. The dub finesse now is for an overtrkk. The defenders can score no more than one trick in each side suit Your horoscope ByJeaneDixon THURSDAY, MARCH 7 Your birthday today: Improving and deepening relationships are the strongest factors in your emotional health and growth this year. Much of what you did in the past moves to the payoff stage, spontaneously; some results fall a bit short, requiring additional effort from you in an already busy season. Today's natives pursue learning, eager for command of special skills, while retaining definite prudence in material affairs. ARIES (March 21-April Expect your work to reach its most strenuous levels. Pace- your efforts to provide both chances to catch errors and rest periods for reflection. TAURUS (April 20-May Group resources need special care. Romance, for the moment, does not thrive; response is unmistakeably negative where you overstate your case. GEMINI (May 21-June You are apt to have mixed feelings today. The fair approach is to protect others from the confusion of hearing both sides by turns. CANCER (June 21-July Stay out of secret particularly where money is the motive. Purchases are too high in price, perhaps more quantity than needed. Take it easy, forgo it wherever you can manage. LEO (July 23-Aug. Your views run to extremes of expression, more than you really mean to signify. Friends are willing to take sides, add extras that run up expenses. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. In the stress of the moment you awaken higher levels of your spirit. From a difficult beginning progress comes and builds rapidly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. A fact you thought was secret turns out to be otherwise. Just because these tales are well told shouldn't lead you to assume everything else is known. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. You'll be proud of sidestepping the hasty moves of your friends. Being careful to state your case simply and clearly makes a great difference. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Your natural tendency to try doing everything by yourself lets you in for work or troubleshooting a bit beyond your ordinary level of skills. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. See that you are not the one seeking difficulty in dealing with old familiars. Mechanical and electrical equipment deserves thoughtful handling. AGUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. You are in the slow upward swing of your "luck." Another round of planning is just as well, provided that you still have the time before having to meet deadlines. PISCES (Feb. 19 March Any minor disagreement now can build into a more, lasting difference of opinion or viewpoint in the future. Be sure you are right. 1974, The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy WHERE DO THEY GO? Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Kelly Brenzikofer, age 11, of Florence, Kansas, for her question: What happens to the stars in the daytime? The stars, as we know, are faraway suns, most of them bigger and brighter than the friendly neighborhood sun that lights our days. Our sun has been blazing away for billions of years and without a doubt it will go on blazing through billions of years into the future The same holds true for the other starry in the night sky. So obviously nothing happens to them when our sun rises each morning. But where in the world are they during the daytime? This baffling mystery was not solved until people got a true picture of our Solar System. Before that, they thought that our little world was the very centre of the Universe and once every 24 hours, the entire Universe revolved around the planet Earth. This mistaken notion was set to rights some 400 years ago, by the great Polish astronomer, Copernicus. A few years later, Galileo, the famous Italian astronomer, first observed the heavenly bodies through a telescope and proved that the Copernicus theory of the Solar System was correct. It was quite a comedown, when people had to face the fact that their Earth is not the centre of the Universe. Actually, the sun is the central star of one of many solar systems in the endless Universe. The earth orbits around the sun, spinning around once every 24 hours as it goes. Believe it or not. these facts are related to the appearance and mysterious disappearance of the stars in our sky. They do not. as people once thought swing around to the other side of the earth. Every calendar day. the earth rotates on its axis turning first one side of the globe then another side to face the spacious universe that surrounds us on all sides. During the day, our side of the globe faces the sun and we enjoy its dazzling daylight At. night our side tarns away from the sun and we see the stars. Because the earth rotates toward the east, the starry constellations rise above the eastern horizon and march westward over the sky. This starry parade continues all night and just before sunrise we still see a skyful of stars. But one by one the paler ones and finally the brightest ones wink out and disappear. Or do they? Actually they are still there in the sky, rising in the east and marching to set in the west. We just cannot see them. This is because our starry sun casts its brilliant rays through the atmosphere above our heads. In a pitch dark room, even a small candle seems to shed a bright flame. But when we light a bright lamp, or let in the dazzling daylight, the little candle flame seems to fade and grow pale. The same thing happens to the daytime stars. When the sun rises, their tiny sparks of light are masked and lost in the razzle-dazzle brilliance of its golden rays. We do not see them again until the sun and its brilliant glory sink to bed below the western horizon. QiMHioha aokod by chUd- iwn of Horpld FMdtn should bo mated to Andy, P.O.
