Relationships are under stress, require special reflection and care. ARIES (March 2!

There are signs that the next page of history will turn us to a green world, in which peo- ple will pay proper respect to the earth and its generous plants. One of these happy signs is a bursting new interest in hybrids. These are superior new plants created by man and nature, working together. For example, nature created the modest little wild rose. From this, mankind developed all those huge, showy hybrid roses. AU our foods come from eith- er plants, or animals that feed on plants. The plant world stands between us and starva- tion and the merciless famines of past history struck when the crops failed. When wandering hunters settled to form the first civilized communities, the lirst order of business was farming. The first farmers cultivated seeds from wild plants. They learned lo select seeds from superior plants to develop bet- ter strains. This selective breeding worked because plants as well as animals tend to inherit the geneitc qualities of their parents. After uncount- able generations, this patient process developed worthwhile cereals from stringy wild grass- es. A breakthrough occurred in tho 1650s, when botanists dis- covered that seeds form from male aj7d female plant cells. Experiments proved that sex cells from different plant var- ieties can be united artifically. Superior varieties were cross- jrcd and lime after lime the seeds inherited the superior qualities of liotii parents. In modern horticulture, Ihis is called hybridization, One ot Hie best examples is the corn that feeds us, our beef and our dairy cattle. The best hybrid seed corn is produced by inbreeding and crossbreed- ing several strains through sev- eral generalior.s. Let's say that pol'-en from tassels on variety A is transferred to the silk of i-ariety B. In the same manner, variety C is inbred with var- iety D. The seeds produce two single-cross hybrids, AB and CD. Next year, the two single- crosses can be crossed, bur best hybrid corn seeds are double-crosses of this sort. Crossbreeding was used to produce more than hybrid garden roses from a few wild rose plants. Every year, the ar- ray of hybrid flowers and vege- tables become ever more amaz- ing. Old strains are crossbred to give us new types that sur- vive severe weather and resist many old plant diseases. 6 Plareis grown from Hybrid seeds tend to be vigorous growers and high yielders. However, their seeds result from careful crossbreeding of their sex cells, which is con- trolled artificially. When hybrid plants are given their-freedom they tend to change the rules. Some hybrids produce no fer- tile seeds. Olhers do, but tbe plants from the next generation rarely inherit Ihe qualities of their hybrid parents.

Surgery best for hernia Dear Dr. Lamb Is it pos-l der than the usual amount re- siblc lo correct a hernia of the commended for preparing milk. lower abdomen without surgery or hospitalization? A man lold me he had a hernia corrected in this manner. In this way you have a richer product with more calcium and more protein in whatever dish you are preparing. You can, for Dear Reader There arc a example, use a half-cup of pow- nurober of things that are done der rather than a thlrd ot a HAGAS the HORRIBlE-By Dik Browno to people to correct problems in the lower abdomen area which aren't necessarily -her- nias, such as withdrawal of fluid from a sac in the scrotum. But the only real way to cor- rect a hernia in that area is surgical. The hernia occurs because the muscles and tendons around Ihe lower abdomen in this area arc torn and stretched. The most common problem then is thst a loop of bowel slips out along the same area that the cord to the teslicle comes out from a hole hi the abdomen. The loop of intestine can then slip out through the lower part of Ihe abdomen and into the scrota! sac. In women there k a struc- ture comparable to the cord which also is associated with a weakening of the lower ab- dominal wall but it's usually not as much of a problem, as in men. The loop of bowel, if it's out, has to be placed back in the abdomen (they usually slide in and out anyway unless they become strangulated) and then the torn and over-stretched liga- ments and muscles have to be properly relocated, and sutured in place. If the sutures hold and the structures don't stretch or tear again then the hernia is corrected. Some people use a truss and external devices but in most in- stances, il the patient's condi- tion permits il, I believe lhat surgery is the proper answer. t Bear Dr. Lamb one of your future articles will you explain the reason yon specifi- cally said use fortified skim milk for drinking purposes but use nonfat milk for cooking? Is it because of the better taste of skim milk only? We have been drinking the dry milk fortified with vitamins A and D for years and would like to continue to do so. How- ever, if something of nutritional value is missing we would switch lo skim milk. Dear Reader There is noth- iing wrong at all with drinking reconstituted dry milk. Most people just don't like it as well as fortified skim milk. Even plain skim milk doesn't laste as good to some people as some of the fine fortified skim milk products marketed in recent times. The dry milk has some ad- vantages in cooking over uid skim milk. For one thing, you can prepare a nonfat gravy with water and beat in the milk powder at the last minute and avoid scorching the milk. This can be done in almost any other dish where heating milk is parl of the preparation. Then yon an add more nonfat milk pow- cup of powder to one cup of water.

Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS March 19, 1973 French explorer Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de LaSalle, first white man to descend the Mississippi River, was murdered 266 years ago 1687. He was killed by his own men when a mutiny broke out in Texas as he was at- tempting to reach the Mis- sissippi's mouth to establish a fort. LaSalle had emi- grated to Montreal from France in 1668 and had be- come a favorite of Fron- tenac, governor of French Canada. Canadian gov- ernment froze retail prices on clothing, textiles, furni- ture and household furnish- ings. United States and Canada signed the pact to develop tho Great Lakes- St. Lawrence waterway. Canadian House ot Commons passed a bill banning Canadian enlist- ments lor the Spanish Civil War. 1760 Massachusetts in- vited delegates for the first Continental Congress. English founded the Massachusetts colony.
