Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD Friday, March Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I'm writing you this letter because I have an embarrassing problem I can't discuss with anyone. Please help me, if you can. I'm 26, female and have one child and am very happy other than the fact that I'm beginning to grow a mustache. I know I shouldn't have bothered it, but I became so frantic I've tried everything to take it off and it is only worse. I'm becoming very withdrawn, and I'm so afraid nothing can be done. Please help me. I have a wonderful husband but he notices everything, and I know it will bother him very much if he happens to notice it Dear Reader If it isn't evident enough for your husband to have noticed it yet then it may not be so apparent or important as you think Many women have a light amount of facial hair, particularly on the upper lip. The important point is that it is affecting your personality and your behavior. You will- have to get help from someone because you simply can't do much for this type of problem yourself. I would suggest a visit to your doctor. If you have a glandular problem he would be able to help you. Usually this is not the case, and it is a straight cosmetic problem. In that instance you could then have the hairs removed by electrolysis, using an electric needle. Skilled operators can kill the tiny hair follicle and no more hair will grow from that follicle It usually takes several treatments because hair that you can't see sprouts and grows out later. After several treatments the area should stay free of hair. Don't be foolish and let your problem affect your life. There is nothing wrong with doing things to improve one's appearance. That is one reason teeth are straightened, noses are shortened, hair styled and nice looking clothes worn. It is all part of the same thing. Everyone wants to look their best Well, almost everyone. Dear Dr. Lamb Although organ meats have a reputation for being nutritious, I have heard it said that they are not to be recommended for eating by older people because of something they do to the blood. I would appreciate any information you may be able to give me on this question. I am inordinately fond of organ meats, but I am also fond of being in good health. Dear Reader Most normal, healthy people can eat some organ meats without trouble. Brains are very high in cholesterol. Liver, kidney, and sweetbreads are moderately high but can be used in limited amounts. Heart has only about half as much cholesterol and can be used in larger quantities and still not overload the diet with cholesterol. The cholesterol limitation is often recommended to help prevent heart disease. The only other problem with organ meats is that some patients with severe gout are asked to avoid them. Otherwise, use them in moderation. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Balanced Diet" booklet. Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER "Anything wrong with my asked Edie. "You've been staring at it quite a while." Stan turned. "It's the time, or it was a few moments he replied. "The minute hand was right on a minute mark, and the hour hand was three tunes as far from the nine o'clock mark as the minute hand was from the two o'clock mark." Only Stan would notice such a thing, but what was the time? No cheating now! (Answer Monday) Yesterday's answer: SPEEDS was 217782. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN e me TIM Both vulnerable. South deals. NORTH 0 Void 4J9854 WEST EAST 8 4 V M 7 5 3 OAKQ1972 0854 At SOUTH 4AK872 0 J9C3 The bidding: South West East 1 20 2 Pus 2 30 3 PMC 1 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of O South made a valiant ef- fort at his contract of four spades. Unfortunately, no points are awarded for ef- fort. only for making the contract. Once South rebid his spades, confirming a five- card suit. North displayed excellent judgment in rais- ing his partner's suit rather than showing his second suit. South's decision to go on to four spades was based partly on a revaluation of his queen of hearts, an im- portant card in view of North's bid, and partly be- cause his diamond length suggested partner would be short in that suit. The opening diamond lead was. ruffed in dummy. De- clarer crossed to his hand with the queen of hearts and ruffed a second diamond on the table. Since there was no quick entry back to his hand outside of trumps, declarer elected to cash the ace and king of trumps, leaving one of the defenders with the master trump. Now, declar- er tried to run the heart suit to obtain diamond discards. This plan would have suc- ceeded had the defender with the last trump held at feast three hearts. Declarer would have obtained two diamond discards by the time that de- fender ruffed, and only losers would have been two clubs and a trump. Un- fortunately, West raffed the third heart, cashed a high diamond and forced declarer to ruff a diamond. Locked in his own hand, declarer had to lose two clubs, for he was forced to lead away from his king. Declarer tost control of the hand when he allowed mas- tery of the trump suit to pass to his opponents. Con- sider what would happen if, at trick two, declarer led a low trump from dummy and passed it West would win the trump ten, but would be powerless to defeat the contract There' would still be a trump in dummy to control the dia- mond suit As soon as South gamed the lead, he would draw trumps in two rounds and cash his five hearts. In an, declarer would score four trump tricks, dia- mond ruff and five hearts. Your horoscope By Jeam Dixon SATURDAY, MARCH 9 Your birthday today: "All systems go" is the slogan of your year. There's no major problem, no drastic shift of direction or personal orientation required or probable. Relationships tend to level into sensible mutual co-operation. Today's natives have good potential abilities, often some hindrance to their fluent expression of original thought. It is seldom that anything bothers their enduring enthusiasm for whatever they are involved in doing. ARIES (March 21-April You have exceptional opportunity for your own experiments, ventures into new fields. Just avoid trying to push anybody else into anything. TAURUS (April 20-May Plan your time to best advantage. Group finances come to rather favorable disposition if the whole story is given out to all concerned. GEMINI (May 21-June Now the sense of recent history dawns, a bit late for you to have caught the interesting beginnings, plenty of time to catch the final action. CANCER (June 21-July Keep moving, catch as many little adventures as circumstances permit. Sentimental concerns take up more time and space than usual LEO (July 23-Aug. Regular routines should be finished off promptly, the earlier the better, as other things will be there to do. Romantic ideas are encouraged VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. It is time to gather outstanding accounts, re- establish neglected ties, and bring home whatever belongings may have been lent to neighbors. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Ride along with the tide. Creative work is intriguing but apt to be a bit complicated by the personal needs of others associated with you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Just get your quota of responsibility covered, or at least well started. Action counts for much more than promises or discussion. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Being as tactful as you can may not be enough for some people, but friends will understand your intentions. Accept invitations for further social contact. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Pursue business planning Make a survey of immediate resources and give some thought to the way you are using them. Changes will suggest themselves. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. You may make quite a number of promises by nightfall See that you keep them, as most have strong emotional satisfaction involved in their fulfillment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Line up your accounts and budgets. Since certain moves are not really urgent, give thought to the probable reasons for their being suggested. 1974, The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy NOT THE SAME Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Alicia Rutledge, age 12, of Atlanta, Georgia for her ques- tion: Are planets dead stars? In some ways, a dead star is like a planet, but the two are not the same thing at all. Astronomers tell us that a dead star shrinks to the size of a smallish planet and like a planet, it sheds no brilliant light or blazing heat Both are round globes of solid materials, But a burned out star is at least a million times denser and heavier and besides, it was once a nuclear bonfire but the planet was not Scientists know more or less how a sun and its planets are born and live through billions of years. From studying the nuclear fusion of the H-bomb, they know how a star's fiery furnace burns and finally burns out. By studying aging stars in the heavens, they know how the average star grows old and dies. Our sun has a permanent family of nine planets. A few planets have been found orbiting other stars out in space and astronomers think that most other stars have solar systems of their own. In each case, the solar system is formed from an enormous cloud of cosmic gases. For reasons unknown, the huge hazy cloud begins to shrink and condense. Cosmic forces set it spinning like a wheel, with most of the material packed together in the center. Smaller concentrations of material form the planets, whirling their separate orbits. Perhaps 99 per cent of all the material in this budding solar system is concentrated in its central sun. Eventually, dynamic cosmic forces cause its enormous mass to ignite and the embryo star becomes a blazing sun. Most of its material is hydrogen, the fuel which powers the nuclear fusion of its furnace. The average sun starts out with enough hydrogen fuel to run its furnace for many billions of years. As the fuel is consumed, it creates helium, which is the ashes of the nuclear furnace. Meantime, the blazing sun sheds life giving radiation on its planets and its enormous gravity keeps them revolving around their orbits Things may go on like this for ten billion years or more. But gradually the sun uses up its original quota of hydrogen fuel. Scientists predict what happens when about 15 per cent of the hydrogen is consumed Its core of helium ash starts a second nuclear furnace, far hotter than the first. The star swells up and becomes a seething red giant, scorching the surfaces of the inner planets to ashes. This sudden flare up soon subsides. Then the star shrinks and shrinks, burning with a blue glow as it changes its materials into metals. After a few hundred million years, its blazing blue fires s'ibside but the weary old furnace continues to glow red for a hundred billion years or more. Eventually, of course, the weary old star burns out altogether and becomes a ball of cold, dead ashes. Though smaller, it still has most of its original mass or material. Since gravity is related to mass, this means that the little dead star still holds its planet children in their orbits. Though as small as a planet, the dead densely packed sun still is perhaps a million times more massive than the average planet. ranofHt VtUNMM Boi. 70S, HunMngton California 92641.
