D 'Walking best for the heart Dear Dr. Lamb I h if Iherc are any kinds of activity that those with hear conditions should especially avoid. My husband is most an xious lo do what is best not overdo, but lie probabl} doesn't do enough. I think hi. can't quite realize that exercise of the right kind strengthens not weakens, the heart. I ba lieve a column of general ad' vice for people with a heart condition would be of help lo niany, if such advice can bo given when there are so many kinds of this trouble. Dnar Reader Thank you for your thoughtful suggestion. For individuals who do not have any symptoms of heart disease, specifically no evidence of shortness of breath or chest pain, I think the best exercise in the world is enough simolR walking. It doesn't need to be very fast, ft can gradually be increased in speed, if one de- sires to do so, or in duration to a level entirely consistent with the individual's own health. A comfortable walk of from 10 to 15 minutes is usually within the scope of most people's physi- cal ability unless they already have symptoms of heart dis- ease. Then the duration can br> increased to 30 minutes, then 30 minutes twice a day. While many people can walk an hour without difficulty, there are a surprising number who cannot. So it is not a goal one should hope to achieve when ho first starts walking. If a person has any evidence of chest pain or shortness of breath or just feels too tired, he should stop walking and rest. Any person who has symp toms while doing ordinary wall ing shouldn't try to do any rnor of an exercise program withou a complete evaluation by thei doctor. I do not approve of vigorou exercise for individuals wh have not already demonstrate adequate walking capacity. Fo older people or those nho a ready have disposed heart dis ease, I am not very entlmsias tic about maximum physical ex ercise of any type. Good walk ing exercise Mill build up you heart and circulation. In young er people without evidence o serious heart disease, after they have demonstrated their walk ing capacity and maintained i for several weeks, more vigor ous exercise such as joggin] and other exercises can be con sidered. Many people already exceed Ihese levels of exercise regu larly and do so comfortably For those I suggest that they continue lo do so, only avoid peak.exertion or unusual exer .ion. It is better to exercise ittle bit below your maximum capacity and do it more of I en :ban it is to overdo it just one !ime. Exercise causes the heart o increase its work. The heart s essentially a muscle and like any other muscle that is work ed it builds up its strength. Doc- ors also think that appropriate orms of exercise increase the )lood supply to the heart mus cle just as we know it does in other muscles of the body that are worked or exercised. Used iroperly, it is a wonderful way f building up the strength and apacity of the heart. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN [e lln: IT m Ckluw Trlhm) BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS 1-East-West vulnerable.

Yo may not suspect it, but this cu }f salty seawater contains ample of -plankton. Chance are, it teems with an assort ment of living things, too sma] o be seen without a micro cope. The green tinge, for ex mple, is added by microscopic Igae. In astronomical num ers, these humble little mem ers of the plant world providi xygen for marine animals nhey also pour a surplus into he air to be wafted over the and. Actually, our cup of seawater a rather poor sample o lankton.We could get a richer ample in the Antarctic or in ome other region where the ater is tlironged with assorted shes. If we sift a scoop of this atei- through a fine net, we left with a layer of slime id a few fragments that look le tiny creatures. The micro- coje proves these fine frag- ents to be an assortment of ggs and larvae, a few of which ill survive to become fishes, abs and other larger animals the sea. The slime turns out be an asortment of micro- opic plants and animals. These midgets float near the rface of the seas in ashuuo- ical numbers. The miniature plant cells use sunlight to make their food and release oxygen into the air and water. The miniature animals feed on the plants and on each other. To- gether they make a highly nou- rishing seafood salas of meat and vegetables. Shrimps and dozens of other small swim- mers feed upon it. The great blue whale is the earth's largest animal. He uses the balleen curtains in his mouth to suit plankton from the water. This is bis only food. Most oilier sea duellers do not feed directly on plankton. But without it they would starve. This is because the floating seafood salad is the base of their food chain. The smaller marine animals thrive on it, multiply and provide food for the larger ones. These pro- vide food for bigger and still bigger fishes. For example, hall a ton of plankton feeds 100 pounds of small shrimp who feed ten pounds of mackerel. There is not much of this basic seafood salad in a cup of ocean water. But the vast oceans have enough of it for all their creatures. As usual, tliis vital food chain is a delicately balanced pyra- mid. When offshore waters are polluted by human and indus- Irial wastes, some species in :he plankton are destroyed and others multiply beyond bounds, adding more pollution to the water. The basic balanced diet is upset and many fishes (hat depend on it must perish. Some of them may be valuable as luman food.

The remarkable capybara s the giant of the rodent clan. le lives on the side of the all the way from Pana- ma to Paraguay. There, he also s known as the water pig or he water cavy. He looks some- vhat like a plump, fair sized ig wearing a shabby dark oat of scrawny hairs. How- ver, his square shaped face oes not resemble a pig's nout, he has very, very small ars and no tail worth mention- ng. He is four feet long, stands 1 inches high and tips the cales at about 120 pounds. The capybara's unusual feet ave webbed toes and long ails. Hence, he is well-equip- ed to trot over hard ground take to the water. lie feeds n vegetation near streams or vers, where he can dive to afety when threatened by a I ungry jaguar. Apparently his eat is very tasty, which is hy his most serious enemy is an. Tliis large, inoffensive unny type rodent is hunted n land and from canoes in the ater.

(Copyright chrnnicte Publishing Cn 1972) Electricity aids healing WASHINGTON (AP) Suc- cessful use of electric current lo stimulate healing of a rare, con- genital bone-defect in a 14-year- old boy who otherwise faced amputation of a leg was re- ported today by a team of New York City researchers. The case marked only the sec- ond known time that electricity has been employed successfully in promoting human bone-heal- ing. Dr. Leroy S. Lavine of Down- state Medical Center and sev- eral of his associates there and at New York University told it in a report to the tech- nical journal Science. Lavine said (he researchers believe the "success" achieved against the rare though only a single rants application of the electric technique "to other less-rare problems, such as non-union and delayed healing of frac- tures." But he said much addi- tional basic research must be done before the technique is used extensively ir, humans. The case reported involved a fracture-like defect caused abnormal tissue growth of the inner leg bone. The unidentified patient hat to wear braces from the time he was able to walk imtil he wa four years old. After that, he underwent a series of operations over a period of nearly 10 years, without avail, and facet certain amputation until the electric method was tried as an alternative, Dr. Lavine re- ported. "As an alternative to amputa- tion of the he said, "in October of 1970, direct electric current was passed across the defect and beginning bone- union was obtained within four months." The first reported case of the use of electric current to pro- mote bone-healing was made list fall. A team at the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania said they had iifed such a method lo pro- mote healing of an ankle-frac- lure in a woman. The original fracture lad failed to heal pro- perly over a year's time, they said. i ACTUALLY.
