Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IFTHBRIOGE HERALD Fridny, Mortli 10. W2 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Behavior change f yvfe demands a Mention In DON'T VOD mi we, AMD THEM I'LL 8E ONE i Itpar Dr. L.nnilv I r c a fI your article said that there was of (lie brain cells Hmt were damaged by a stroke. 1 wns wondering if an fliiewysm operation could cause damage to the brain cells. Con Id a psychiatrist or or pills help? Tliree years ago my son liad that operation and here is what I have noticed in Ins behavior since: very nervous, lies a lot, cannot take pressure of any kind, forgetful, cannot f i n ci work lie likes, fear, reads a lot about suicide, reads a lot about dirty sex, not too many friends. He "had none of this before the operation and he does not take drugs or drink. Dear Header It is very difficult in medicine to estab- lish a direct cause and effect relationship. particularly in problems related1 to the person- ality. These events may have occurred normally ns the years passed, totally independent of the operation. I presume when you say aneurysm you are talk- ing about a dilated artery in the brain because of (fie ques- tion of brain damage. Brain damage can follow almost any kind of operation if there are complications. Frankly psycho- tic behavior often occurs after open heart surgery. Fortunate- ly, it usually disappears in time. Tf your son has really had n significant change in ity, it would be a good idea for Who pays? TORONTO CCP) If your doctor treats you by telephone instead of by house or office call and charges you for it, who pays? Ontario Health Services In- surance Plan won't and some Ontario doctors want the gov- ernment to pay for such calls, Ronald Browiiridge, assistant secretary nf tho Ontario Medi- cal Association, said here. He. said in an interview: "It is our understanding such charges are rarely made here. But they can be, pri- marily to discourage sary calls." He said not many Ontario doctors "would risk the haz- ard, of diagnosing new ill- nesses over the phone." But. they might, bill patients for re- peated calls for advice, fear- ing needless O3lls would in- crease, He said the association does not set. a rate that doctors may charge for telephone ad- vice. n iisy-chialviKt. A could help him a ot and miybody who roads a lot about suicide needs help. Tho iroblcm should not be ignored. Dear Dr. I.atnb I am 50 ears old and have had covon- nry artery disease for more han Iwo years, ily doclor says t is not severe enough for mcd- cine. I get severe pain over tho eft breast and left arm after xertion or when I begin lo ire. How long do you have to ive with this disease before you need to get lelp for it? Dear Header If the pain are talking about is caused jy your heart, you could take tritroglycerin tablets. That is vhat they are for, Your letter sn't explicit enough for me to >c certain that your pain, how- ever, really is related to tho icarl disease that you state yon have. Typically, the exertions! pain from heart disease occurs at the time one is doing the exertion and not some time afterward. Of course, you can have heart jain even ut rest, but that usu- illy means something else. If rou are having pain very often, why don't you ask your docto? f he won't give you nitroglyc- erin tablets that you slip under vour tongue lo stop the pain? People who have pain with ex- ertion caused by the heart can earn what amount of exercise will produce it and take llio tablets before the exertion. This often prevents pain. MP predicts controls in 6 mouths TORONTO (CP) Robert Kaplan, Liberal member of Par- liament for Toronto Don Valley, says Canada probably will have wage and price controls within six months. Ha said yesterday he thinks the federal government will im- pose them on selected areas o( the economy to fight inflation. Mr. Kaplan told 85 persons at a question-and-answcr meeting he would like to see controls start "right now in the construc- tion industry.1' He said Metropolitan Toron> to's skilled construction trades- men won raises o[ S2 nn hour or more in two-year contracts last year and builders simply pass on the increased cost to people who must have housing. Bear sizes vary Arnly sends a complete volume set of the World Hnok fcjKjvlopedia to .John Sutli- van, ago of St. Paul, Min- nesola, for his question: What is the average weight of a hear? The average bear has dozens of cousins. All of them arc tho usual bulky bear But they come in different sizes and the big types weigh more than the small ones. A grizzly may stand more than eight feet tall and weigh more than four tall, fat men. But he is not the bulki- cst bear in the world. On the small size ot the family, the little sun bear may stand only three feet high and weigh just a few pounds more than you do. The giant Kodak bear lives i the far north. He may be ine feet tall and his average is around 1.000 pounds, 'his is more than of a ton. Tile giant Kodiak bear lives n Southeast Asia, His average icighv is between three and our feet. His average weight s between 60 and 100 pounds. I would take at least IB of iiese small bears to equal tho vcight of one big Kodiak bear. :ly (he average weight of a r must he somewhere be- ween these two. Perhaps the middlew eight 1: a m p i on is the American ilack bear. His name can fool because his shaggy coat may not be black at all. He nay be light brown or dark irown, ginger brown or even 'alish honey color. But black s a popular color in his {am- ly. Somelimes one of these irowii mother bears has .1 >rood of jet black cubs. Some- imes the cubs of a black bear nay be black, or brown or loney colored. But, regard- ess of color, all of them be- ong to the American black bear family and all of them up to be average sized members of the bear world. These are the bears we meet when we visit some of our won- derful wild National Parks. They arc clownish characters, rather lazy and quitn clever And every one of them is a born moodier, bill of plans to ret himself free handouts from .he visitors. This is a no-no, as every sensible person knows iVilcl bears must practice find- .ng their own food, otherwise :hey forget how to feed them- selves when the visitors depart, Another thing, these bears aro never satisfied with free gifts [f we feed them and fry to stop, they get nasty. And bears can get very nasty indeed. Our average sized black bear stands five feet tall and GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Every summer, a few visitors get bashed by bears. But this is no reason to banish the bears from our National Parks. After all, they rightfully belong there. Most of thorn welcome visitors, in a rather grumpy way. So it's up to us to learn just what to do to keep them and (he real secret is to keep them at a distance. It seems that sooner or later, almost a bears get annoyed with close human friends. Andy sends a World Book Globe to Tommy Gore, age 8, of High Point, North Carolina, for his question: Ifou' did SOS come to mean HELP? Morse code signals are long and short taps. The short ones are called dots and the long ones are dashes. Each letter has certain dots and dashes ar- ranged just so. There are spaces between so that words do not get jumbled to- gether. However, some mes- sages are easier io lap out than others. And when a person needs help, he may forget how to tap out something compli' catcd. This Is why the SOS signal was invented. It is three dots, three dashes and three more dots. This is very easy to tap out, even when a person needs help in a hurry. Actually the message isn't related io the let- ters. Three dots stand for let- ter "S" and three dashes "0" and three dote stand for let- ter "S." So the easy dot-dot dot, dash-dash-dash, dol-doWot are called SOS, even when ev- erybody knew Ihcy meant HELP.' Questions asKefl ny cnlTdien of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
