Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta trie 1.1: mortice mursoay, Maicu k'l, imi4 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I notice your answer to a question as to the benefits of Vitamin E. I was so shocked at your flat answer that it had "no value because it showed your ignorance of all the tests that have been made with this vitamin. There are several books on vitamin E that you should get and read so you can tell your readers the truth and not merely your personal opinion I am aware that the AMA has blocked all efforts to test vitamin E in the U.S., but tests have been carried very successfully in Canada. It is time that AMA progresses and works to keep people well rather than just treating them after they are ill. Dear Reader I am sorry that you are upset because I don't agree with your opinions. Your opinions, however, are not based on solid information. Much of the information hawking vitamin E is from profit-making organizations and does not represent the thinking of top level scientists, nutritionists or physicians in the United States. Canada, England or any other country. Before going further. I should like to point out to you that the National Academy of Sciences National Research Council's Food and Nutrition Board has just reviewed the need for various vitamins, minerals and foods. Their recommendations are based on all the available scientific information. That includes all of the valid material on Vitamin E as well as other vitamins. This is a U.S. Government organization and Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS March 21, 1974 A Socialist Communist government was formed in Hungary 55 years ago today in 1919 after the collapse of the Austro-Hunganan empire Beta Kun, a Hungarian Bolshevik newly arrived from Moscow, began an unpopular program but was forced to tlee when the Romanian army defeated Hungary. Kun returned to Russia where he later became president of Comintern but was shot in 1939 on Stalin's orders. is not part of the AMA. The maximum amount of vitamin E they recommend for any age for a daily dietary allowance is 15 units (about 15 You easily get these amounts in any reasonable diet. These recommendations are for 1973. So, it is not just my opinion, as you have wrongly stated, but the opinion of the best group of nutritionists and scientists in the country that you can and should get all the vitamin E you need from a reasonable diet. The fairy tales about vitamin E have been used to bilk the gullible for many years. It has been investigated, contrary to your statement, in many leading universities in this country and abroad. This includes Canada. And incidentally, The Canadian Medical Association has been busy trying to protect the Canadian public against false claims originating in that country. Vitamin E probably is necessary in small amounts. But, you don't need a special diet to get that amount. It may have some benefits in isolated medical problems, but it does not cure arthritis, heart disease and all other human ills. It is true that some animals need vitamin E The cow and the sheep, for example, will develop heart failure if they don't get it. Man does not behave the same way. Apparently we are able to substitute other chemicals into the metabolic system and use them instead of vitamin E. Differences in species with regard to vitamins are well known. A common well-known example is our dependence on vitamin C We can't manufacture it in our body. But the cow and most animals make it out of carbohydrates. We lack an important enzyme that would enable us to do this. In the case of vitamin E the shoe is on the other foot, or hoof, and some animals need it much more than man.

North deals. NORTO 6 854 f 0 AS KQJ92 WEST EAST 49 KQJ1M2 S7Q975 4 0 K843 0 JU7t 10 754 SOUTH A73 s? AJ8C2 0 Q92 AC The bidding: North East South West 1 2 4k 3 Pats 4 V Pass 4 4k Pats 5 0 Pass C V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Nine of 4. A preemptive bid often dis- rupts the smooth flow of the opponents' auction. However, it can also backfire by driv- ing the opponents into a mak- able contract that they might not have reached under their own steam, and by locating key cards for them. Left to their own devices, it is unlikely that North-South would have gotten beyond four hearts. East's preemp- tive jump overcall of two spades propelled the auction into slam, for after North had raised Smith's suit, the latter felt that he was committed to make another move be- cause of his wealth of controls and the fact that North's hand was not yet limited to a mini- mum. Cue-bids in spades and diamonds resulted in a heart slam that, considering only the North-South cards, was slightly optimistic. West led the nine of spades, taken by declarer's ace. Since the bidding made it more likely that West held length in hearts, South led the lack in the hope of pinning the nine. Dummy's king captured West's queen, and the ten of hearts was cashed to see if the suit would divide 3-2. When East showed out, de- clarer had an unavoidable trump loser, and prospects looked bleak. There was one chance, and declarer went for it. He played four rounds of dubs, discarding two spades from his hand as West was forced to follow. A heart was led to the ace, and West was thrown on lead with his trump win- ner. By now. West was stripped of everything but diamonds, and he was forced to concede the contract to declarer. If he led a low diamond, de- clarer would run it to his queen, crass to the ace of diamonds and discard his re- maining diamond on the fifth club. It would be no better to lead the king of diamonds for declarer would win in dummy and discard on the club immediately. Note that declarer could not afford to play the fifth dub while West still held trumps. West would ruff and exit with a trump, and dedarer would be stranded with a diamond loser.

(1974, The Chicago Tribune) Ask Andy RAINBOWS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Susan Burchfield, age 12, of Lowell, North Carolina, for her question: What is the raincrow? Our raincrow is not really a crow. We also have a ram dove, who is not really a dove. Both of these lovely birds are cuckoos, with soft crooning voices. They visit us during their summer nesting season, but usually stay out of sight However, we sometimes notice their sweet sad voices before an evening thunder shower If you ever chance to catch a glimpse of the raincrow, you know in a moment that he is not related to a sooty black, loud-mouthed crow. The slim graceful creature is about the size of a large robin, plus an extra long tail. His Vest and chest are snowy white. His cap and his back, his wings and his tail are dusky grey. He has a slightly curved cuckoo-type bill and his cuckoo-type toes perch with two in front and two behind. Actually our so-called raincrow is the black-billed cuckoo In summer he nests from southern Canada, all the way south to Florida though not in the Western mountains. We seldom see him because he is a shy bird who keeps to the woods and thickets. Usually his cuckoo call is lost in the mingled chorus of summer songbirds. But we may notice it before an evening thunder shower. Then his deep sad voice says. Tut- tut. Tut-tut. And with a mournful sob he adds. Cl-uck- cl-uck. cl-uck cow-cow-cow. Naturally he came to be called the raincrow because he seems to announce a downpour. But actually he may not be the weather prophet he is cracked up to be. It could be that his deep voice happens to travel farther in the moist stormy air. What's more, most of tlie other birds sink into silence as a storm approaches. This gives the black-billed cuckoo his chance to be heard. His cousin, the yellow-billed cuckoo, is known as the rain dove. His white underparts arc similar to those of the raincrow. but his greyish upper parts are tinged with rusty brown and there are bands of white ribbon across his long tail. And his bill, of course is yellow, not black. The yellow-billed cuckoo, alias the rain dove, nests from British Columbia, southward as far as Florida. Like his black-billed cousin, he spends the winter way down in South America. These cuckoo birds are said to lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. Actually, they build rather shoddy nests and almost always bring up their own children. Only rarely, very rarely do they place an egg out for adoption. It so happens that the cuckoos help to increase our food supplies. This is because they feed on insects, especially the tent caterpillars and hairy caterpillars that do enormous damage to our crops. These pests devour our orchard fruits. The cuckoos also eat grasshoppers and beetles that attack our vegetable gardens. And when army worms attack, the black-billed cuckoo has been known to wipe them out. Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
