(1971: By The Chicago Trubine) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Why egg yolks won't harm baby Dear Dr. Lamb - How do you feel about feeding babies egg yolks as is recommended in some baby diets by baby doctors? And, is that delicious chicken skin harmful when eaten consistently? Is it classified as a saturdated fat? Would you also comment on bacon fat in connection with this? Dear Reader - I don't get worked up about feeding babies egg yolks. Babies and very young children often are able to eat things we don't recommend for adults. Children as a group tend to have low cholesterol values, although there are some exceptions. I think the reason for this is that most growing children are using a lot of their calories for new muscles, bones and general body growth. The thing to guard against In children is childhood obesity. This sets a pattern for life. The obese child often builds more fat cells and it will make controlling body fat more difficult in the adult years. Yes, that chicken skin does contain a lot of fat, even before cooking. Only about one-fourth is polyunsaturated fat while nearly one - third is saturated. The rest is technically called mono - unsaturated fat, which isn't thought to be so good either from a health stand point. Of course, if the chicken is fried in a polyunsaturated fat, like safflower oil or corn oil, the amount of fat and the portion that is polyunsaturated goes up. All fats have many calories. To control the amount of fat in your diet, the best approach is to eliminate the skin. Incidentally, the white meat has about one - half as much fat as the dark meat. Fryer chickens have much less fat than hens and roasters. A whole pound of fryer chicken breast has only 394 calories. Less than 9 grams (about 80 calories) is fat. A pound of thighs ha 435 calories and 19 grams of fat. A pound of ready to-cook roaster chicken has 791 calories and 59 grains of fat. It pays to know this when you are shopping if you really want to decrease fat in the diet effectively. A pound of bacon has over 3,000 calories and 314 grams of fat. About one-third of this is saturated fat and less than 10 per cent is polyunsaturated fat, Newspaper Enterprise1 Assn. Oak apples Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Lisa Marshall, age 9, of Santa Maria, California, for her question: Are oak apples poisonous? A so - called oak apple has a strong, bitter taste. Besides, there is a wormy grub inside it. Sometimes a hungry squirrel breaks it apart, and eats the whole thing. He does not mind eating a few wormy grubs and the bitter taste does not seem to bother him at all. Ages ago, people in Asia and Europe thought that anything that tasted so bad must be good medicine. So they brewed up oak apples to make tonics and also served it to patients who got themsevles poisoned.   ' Eating a so - called oak apple may not poison a person. But it certainly has a horribly bitter taste. What's more, not many people fancy eating the wormy grubs that are inside it. Ages ago, Andy decided not to sample anything growing in the wilds. For another thing, any wild plant may be infested with microbes and many of them are full of secret poisons. Even non-poisonous mushrooms found growing in the wilds are likely to contain grubs or insect eggs. So to be on the safe side, Andy either grows his own vegetables or buys them in stores where they have been inspected. When exploring the great outdoors, he prefers to admire the wild growing things - and to leave them where they belong. He says that this is safer for them and for him too. An oak apple is really a gall and not really an apple at all. It is a round, woody ball fixed onto a twig or a leaf of an oak tree. It is caused by an insect -but nobody can explain how he does it. The story begins when a little waspy insect seeks a place to lay her eggs. She chooses a certain oak tree and drills a small hole in a twig. Into this tunnel she places one tiny egg and goes on her way. Soon the egg hatches into a grub. In some mysterious way the youngster forces the tree to grow a wad of woody cells. Soon he is safely inside an oak apple. Boy, 5, treated for VD LONDON (Reuter) - A five-year-old U.S. boy underwent treatment for venereal disease. *A girl, aged nine had infected him. This was only one of many shocks experienced in Western countries over the last year he-cause of a rapid spread of gonorrhea. The U.S. government in February established a commission to study the problem. Last year, a survey in 30 American cities found that gonorrhea was "rampaging" through the country. "With more than 1.5 million new cases each year, venereal disease is the nation's most communicable disease except for the common cold," the New York Times said. A report to the Geneva-based World Health Organization GOREN ON BRIDGE By CHARLES H. GOREN le 1�71: By Tin Chlci* Tritiintl Neither vulnerable. West deals. NORTH A J4 AQ765J 0 73 * A 10 4 WEST EAST *3 4 9852 V 8 2 V K 10 OKQJ10 94 O A 8 6 5  K862 *QJ3 SOUTH 4 AKQ107S J94 O 2 4975 The bidding: West North East South SO 3 V Pass 4 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of O The' declarer in today's hand got away with his enterprising contract of four epades when East and West missed their signals and failed to take advantage of their resources. West, with only five and one-half winners, was somewhat aggressive in his opening bid of three diamonds but, with his lack of fortification in the major suits, the situation seemed desperate enough to warrant drastic action. As for North's overcall of three spades, it was a somewhat hazardous action at the three level on such an open suit with only 11 high card points, South's jump to four spades may be regarded as routine. West opened the king of diamonds on which East signaled encouragingly with the eight. A diamond continuation was ruffed by declarer who proceeded to draw trump in four rounds. The heart finesse was taken, losing to East's king, and the diamond return was trumped with South's last spade. With the hearts now established, declarer had a place to put his losing clubs and he scored an overtrick. East was quick to place the. finger of blame on his part* ner for not shifting to a club at trick two, contending that, unless the defense was ablo to establish tricks in that suit, there could be no reasonable) hope of defeating the contract. His reasoning was �f course faultless, but it was his own shoddy technique that laid the basis for the defensive lapse. East, having sized up mat* ters at trick one, should have directed the defense. Ha could, if he so desired, follow to the king of diamonds with the five requesting his partner to shift to another suit. The appearance of the dummy makes it clear that clubs is the area in which ta attack. However, the more direct procedure would be to overtake West's lead with the ace of diamonds, in order to assure a club shift at the second trick, for unless West has the king of clubs-the defense might just as well fold camp. (WHO) in January said gonorrhea was spreading through the world and is currently out of control. The disease can be transmitted by any form of sexual contact, whatever the age of carrier or victim. Norwegian Dr. Thorstein Guthe, who conducted the WHO survey, reported increases of the disease in Canada, Britain, Denmark, and Sweden. Syphilis, a far more dangerous disease than gonorrhea, appears to be under control in most countries. . There is no discernible pattern for each country in the gonorrhea problem. Italy recorded 13,175 cases of venereal disease in 1968. But the figure dropped within a year to 11,585 registered cases, according to Rome's central statistics institute. FURTHER DROP EXPECTED For 1970, the institute says final figures will show an even greater drop, mainly because of improved antibiotics. But a contributing factor, officials say, is that prostitutes are wealthier these days and can afford to take proper medical precautions. The statistics presented in the WHO report give a different picture for other countries. Both Canada and Denmark show a 15-per-cent increase in gonorrhea cases. In Britain, the total figure was up to seven per cent. In France, about 17,000 cases of venereal disease are reported each year. Free health clinics established throughout the country have failed to produce any major change. In Osaka, Japan's second largest city, public health department records show that one out of every 25 people suffers from venereal disease. In Argentina, there are 60,000 new cases of syphilis a year. Ten times that number suffer from gonorrhea. Dr. C. S. Nicol, a British health consultant, says "many people do not know that infection can be spread by close genital contact without sexual intercourse." The hungry grub feeds on tree sap. His oak apple home is also a pantry filled with his favorite food. Sealed inside, be eats and eats until he reaches his full size. Then he becomes a sleeping pupa and changes into a winged insect. His oak apple now feels like a prisoq. So he eats himself a tunnel and climbs outdoors - wheT* be spreads his wings and flies away. Dozens of other Insects play tricks like this on different trees. Their mysterious galls may be large or small, on the roots or on plants above the ground. Some types infest gol-denrod plants; others damage wheat crops. Not all galls ax* caused by insects. Some are caused by slime molds and bacteria.  � � Dyes from oak apples are used to tan leather, color cloth and imprint tatoos on the skin. One type is very special. It is used to make the ink to print treasury notes for the United States and the Bank of England. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Animal neglect spurs term in kennel OTTAWA (CP) - A man who allowed two collies to starve to death has been sentenced to work in a kennel for three weeks. Stephen Holdford, 21, was convicted of neglect for locking two collies in a garage and allowing them to die of malnutrition. Judge J. A. Archambault Wednesday ordered Hold-ford, currently unemployed, to spend three weeks working at local humane society kennels. Holford, who had already spent four days in jail, was told by the judge: "I trust this will be a lesson to you and others who torture and neglect animals." Metal workers get pay hike OTTAWA (CP) - A London, Ont., wage settlement giving sheet metal workers increases of $2.20 an hour to reach $7.90 an hour in the spring of 1972 will be investigated by the prices and incomes commission. The commission headed by Dr. John Young said all factors leading to the settlement between the London Sheet Metal Contractors Associaion and Local 473 of the Sheet Metal Workers' International Association will be reviewed. The contract affects 240 workers in the London area and put their pay rates $1.40 or more above comparable contracts in Toronto and other southwestern Ontario centres. LSD boomeranged TORRANCE, Calif. (AP)-Donald John Henry, 31, said he spiked potato chips with the hallucinogenic drug LSD at a party last April because he thought it would make for a "great" party. The guests weren't aware of what Henry had done. Henry was sentenced in Superior Court Thursday to six years to life imprisonment for the act and for several other narcotics charges. Fifty persons at the party were treated at hospitals'. REAL ESTATE SLOW TORONTO (CP) - The Mor-gage Insurance Co. of Canada says real estate markets were slow during February despite a slight drop in interest rates and a small increase in the already plentiful supply of money. Near the end of the month "faint signs were appearing of a slight improvement in the demand for funds," the company said in its monthly report of activity in Canadian cities. � CAN WU IMAGINE?
