Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBR1D6E HERAID Thursday, Mtmli 8, 197J LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Elderly couple troubled by sex Dear Dr. Lamb I would like for you lo explain to me, if you can, the actions of a "man in his early 70s whom I was going to marry. I am the same age. 'When he could not perform the sex act, he blamed it on me and called off the en- gagement and said we were not compatible. I told him peo- "ple who marry at our age marry more for companionship. He said he wanted a wife, not a companion. Please set me straight on this if you can as I hive worried and wondered about it. Dear Header Many older people enjoy an active sex life, and many men over 70 years of age have fathered children. H Is usually said that in the American population about half of the men over 75 years of age lose their sexual ability. Ob- viously then, about half of them retain itj at least to some degree. From the large volume of mail I receive from older peo- ple about sex, it is clearly an important consideration hi their lives just as it is to younger people. As in younger people, the level of interest and activity is highly variable. With increasing age a number of medical problems do occur which can cause difficulties. If the woman is deficient in fe- male hormones, COHY- monly occurs after the meno- pause, in the course of time she may have developed enough changes to cause her real phys- ical difficulties. Other women in their 70s maintain a strong sex drive and continue lobe ac- tive. A woman's sexuality in later years can be protected by replacement of female hor- mones after menopause If she needs them. New heart drug St. LOWS (AP) Chromal- loy American Corp. has been cleared to market a new anti- angina! drug called Tolsem in Mexico, Chairman Joseph Friedman said yesterday. Sim ilar tests are still going on ir I he United States and in othci countries. The Mexico testb demonstrated 90 per cent bene- ficial results on patients with angina pectoris. a disease marked by a lack of oxygen to the heart muscles. There isn't a yes or no answer to your question. Men sometimes blame a woman for their own problems and vice versa. It is also true that while sex is important, it is not the only aspact of life and certain- ly not the only basis for a gocd relationship between two indi- viduals in or out of marriage, I suspect that no marriage is a rip-roaring success over very many years if the only ingredi- ent that is holding it together is sex. Dear Dr. Lamh In your opinion do today's children have pimvorms as they did a few years ago. If so, what are the symptoms? How do you detect them? Dear Reader Pimvorms are still very common. It is not exactly a social disgrace to have them either since it affects all people regardless of econ- omic level or ethnic origin and whether they arc city folks or country folks. The pinworm's lack of discrimination concern- ing whom it infecis leads one observer to comment that pin- worms have been known to at- tack the highest seats in the land. Although pinworms infect children more than adults, the whole family can be involved. The most striking symptom i rectal itching. The female wcrms migrate down the in- testine into the external anal area where they lay their eggs. It is the migration of the fe- male to the anal area whicl causes the intense itching. Oc- casionally pinworms cause more severe problems, but this is relatively rare. The diagnosis is made using a swab, often a tongue depres- sor, covered with ordinary cel- lophane tape, sticky side out. In the morning before bathing the sticky side of the tape is press- ed against the itchy area. Tha Upe is placed over a micro- scope slide and oil examination the eggs can be seen. Scud your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of tliia news- paper, P.O. Box 1551, Dept, Radio City Station, New York. N.Y. 100W. For copies of Dr. Lamb's booklets on impotence or menopause, send 50 cttits each (he sure to Mate your choice) to the same address. rOREN ON BRIDGE 87 CHARLES H. GOREN e mi, CKUH Both vulnerable. East deals. NORTH EAST 02 AU4 IWST VQJ988 CM3 OA5 SOUTH 3 OKCJJSI The bidding: East Soulli West Norii 1 0 Pass 1 A ftts 2 0 Pass 3 Pm 3 NT Pass Pass Pan Opening lead: Queen ol Failure lo execute a safety play while developing his long suit, led to South' s downfall In the three no trump contract presented to- day. North was confronted wilh a choice of calls on Ihe sec- ond round. Over South's re- hid of two diamonds, he could have proceeded direct- ly to three no trump himself. However, with a good six card major suit and only single stoppers in hearts and clubs, he chose instead to jump to three spades, which is of course forcing to game. When South proceeded to three no trump, North ac- cepted the decision. West opened the queen ot hearts and the king was played from dummy. A dia- mond was led. East followed wilb, the five and declarer put up the jack which won the trick. He continued with the king and East was in with the ace. A heart return dislodged South's ace. Ha played the queen o! dia- monds; however., East showed out and West was revealed to iave a second stopper in the suit. When the latter got in, he cashed enough heart tricks to send the declarer down to defeat. South could have won the hand by leading a small dia- mond instead of the king aft- er Ihe Jack held, for East It left the lone see. How- ever, this is an unnatural play and would have been 'based on a peek at his oppo- nent's holding. A more legitimate play was available to ths declarer which would have enabled' Wm to salvage his contract. It is suggested that, when the first diamond is led from dummy, South put in the nine from his hand. Altho this gives West an opportuni- ty to -win a cheap trick with the ten, the latter Is not in position to continue Ihe at- tack in hearts without giving South an additional stopper in that suit. West's best return is a spade. Declarer puts up North's see, enters his hand with the king of clubs and leads Ihe king of diamonds. East Is In with the ace and returns a heart. South puts up the ace, cashes the queen and jack of diamonds, pull. Ing the outstanding cards In that suit, and runs for cover with nine clubs, four diamonds, two hearts and one spade.

Suppose we lived on enormous rafis, bobbing gently on the waves and Inching slowly around the global ocean. There is nothing frightenng in this mildly adventuresome picture. The recent facts we have learn- ed about the earth's mantle are somewhat more adventurous. But the global picture is no more hazardous than life on tliat huge drifting raft. V Just a few years ago tile earth's mantle was describ- ed as a rather stodgy layer be- tween the thin rocky crust and the seething core at the center of the planet. Seismic waves suggested that it is denser than crust. It was assumed lo be hot, plastic or semi-plasic but definitely steady and well behaved. My, how those notions have changed! About 30 years ago, some daring dreamers suggested that the continents drift around the globo like floating rafts. This theory of Continental Drift was pooh-poohed, mainly because stupendous energies would be needed to operate the slow-mo- tion, global carousel. At that time, nobody drcanred these dynamic resources were in the mantle which was supposed to be a placid, do-nclhing layer about miles thick. A decade or so ago, research- ers from various countries de- termined to test the new drift theory. Their results shatter- ed the older concepts and masses of evidence proved that indeed the continents are drift- ing around on global tours. The same evidence also revealed that the stupendous energy needed to operate this global carousel comes up from the mantle. Earth scientists now think that the mighty mantle acts as a dynamic thermal doncuclor, between the cool crust and the seething core. Its uppar level is rigid and broken into ten major and numerous fragments. These are the tektonic plates that support the continental rafts and enfold the globe like a cracked shell. Forces from below keep the surface plates moving in def- inite patters. On. a global scale, the mantle's stupendous thermal energy circulates hi convection currents. These pat- terns resemble boiling water, as it steams up and over, down and around the pot. In the man- tle, rising'and descending con- vection currents 'release their energies at various junctions between certain tektonie plates. In the ocean beds, some 40, 000 miles of submerged ranges mark zones of rising currents. Here masses of molten material erupt from the mantle, cool and solidify. This occurs along Uie famous Mid-Atlantic Hidge and the spreading sea floor pushes apart enormous tektonic plates. With them go the con- tinents. In an average lifetime, the east and west shores of the Atlantic may drift six feet far- ther apart. This is merely one feature of the dynamic mantle. Another is an irregular layer of hot mol- ten material. It is about 50 miles thick and begins about 30 miles below the rigid plates. Earthquake and volcanic zones channel down and derive their energy from this mysterious level. In other zones, descend- ing currents drag the edges of tektonic plates downward to form plunging trenches in the ocean floor.
