Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta nt Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb First 1 am 67 and I can't write very well In my whole life I only went to school 93 days. That's what my report card said. I learned from my kids the little I know I go to a but he only answers bluntly about what's wrong with you. If your feet or whole legs swell so much it is from your heart. If both arms it is also heart. I saw the card on his desk When the nurse went out it was left near me It said artenosclerotic cardiovas- cular disease and diver- coronary artery disease There was but the nurse was coming back How much time do I have left9 Some things I must do. Dear Reader It looks like you have made the most of your 93 days in school You can read and write and that is quite a bit under those circumstances You can have swelling of the feet and legs from heart disease When the heart fails to pump fluid accumulates in the legs you can have pain in the arms from heart disease Judging from your the diagnoses you were able to and your age you probably do have fatty deposits in the arteries to your hpart This is quite common in our society in persons of your age gro'up. The other diverticulitis. refers to inflamed small pockets off the colon. The inflammation may quiet down and just leave quiet pockets I can't tell you what to expect for the future The truth is that atherosclerosis or fatty deposits in the arteries is an 'unpredictable disease 1 have seen people with this problem live for years with proper when they followed their doctor's advice I have also seen apparently healthy persons have a heart attack from the same disease a week after getting a clean bill of health from their doctor Not because the doctor but because our tests are not that good for identifying this disease when it is with no pain or or breathing problems So. hope for the best Take vour medicine and follow exactly what you are told and hopefully you will do well For more information on write to me in care of this P.O. Box Radio New N.Y. and ask for the booklet on cholesterol. Enclose 50 cents to cover costs Dear Dr. Lamb Should an 11-year-old boy be ashamed of having an ulcer' What can I tell people to explain why I get pains' What can I do to get rid of it' Dear Reader there is no reason for anyone to be ashamed of having an ulcer. Did you know that even small babies sometimes have an ulcer' Just tell people the if you feel you have to explain what your problem is Of there are a lot of things that cause stomach pains besides and you need an examination to find out if you really have one In any whatever causes your stomach pain it is not something to be ashamed about It is to have a medical examination. If you do have an ulcer then your doctor will want you to be on a treatment program to control the excess acid that aggravates the ulcer Dr. Lamb welcomes questions from his but because of the volume of mail he cannot answer personally. Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. Write to Dr. Lamb in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

In the 1973 World East allowed his concentra- .ion to and he rued .he consequences No slam is particularly but the club slam is slightly superior to a slam m spades since the losers are not in the trump suit. There are some wasted values in both the North and South lands North can do without the club jack and South does not need the heart queen. If either of these cards was the jack of the slam would be an excel- lent undertaking. West led the king of dia- and declarer set about giving himself the best chance possible. He won the ace of diamonds and drew trumps in two rounds The king and queen of hearts were declarer dis- carding a spade from and the fourth heart was ruffed. A diamond ruff com- pleted the stripping of the red suits from both declarer's hand and dummy. declarer led a spade to the and East care- lessly followed suit with the nine. School was out. De- clarer led a low spade from and when East played the he played low. West could not afford to overtake with the ace for that would set up declarer's queen allowing East to hold the lead with the jack of spades was no for East had nothing but dia- monds left on the forced diamond declarer was able to discard his queen of spades while ruffing the dia- mond in dummy Had East been more he could have beaten the slam by dropping his jack of spades under the king. West would then remain wich the ace-ten of spades over de- clarer's and the de- fenders would collect two spade tricks for a one-trick set.

CANCER 21-July your schemes are revised to fit into an organized may become simpler and easier as you are coaxed to drop frills Surprising help is available in odd places. LEO 23-Aug. Whatever you can do single- handed to advance by all means do within reasonable bounds. You can't wait or depend on others to open the subject or to begin operations VIRGO The fine art of saying without stirring animosity comes into practice to day. Consolidate scattered enterprises and budgets. Tidy up try out new appliances LIBRA 23-Oct. Your career effort goes smoothly enough once you meet forceful suggestions from with some definite assertion of your own devising. Expect no progress in romance. SCORPIO 23-Nov. common-sense methods are most pertinent to today's problems. People often complain of matters quite other than what really troubles them.

But chances are it does not happen the way you picture it. For one none of these plants can devour anything much bigger than a bee. No plant is big enough to trap and squeeze the goodness out of a human being What's the land- dwelling plants are rooted to the spot They cannot prowl as the meat-eating animals chase after their food Most plants use sunlight to make their basic foods from water and chemicals in the soil. But some soils cannot provide all the food chemicals they need For plants need to take certain nitrogen chemicals from the soil And as a there is a shortage of these chemicals in soggy-boggy soils. Plants that grow in these soils must have ways to get their needed nitrogen from somewhere else. There is plenty of this stuff in the bodies of and a few plants have clever ways to get it Actually they don't grab a bite of insect chew it up and digest it as we cope with our meaty food They trap an then soak him in juices that draw out his nitrogen chemicals. There are not many of these odd plants in the world Some people call them insectivorous plants until we only knew about those that consume insects Now we know about a strange fungus plant that consumes real meat It lives in the steamy jungles of Borneo and its meat course is a mini- worm let called a nematode. So nowadays we call all these oddities carnivorous plants which means meat-eating plants. One of them is the pretty little sundew. It is a flat rosette of spoon- shaped about the right size to fit in the palm of your hand The tiny spoons have hairy with here and there a glistening drop of dewy moisture. When a fly is tempted to land on a the little spoon closes like a fist The Venus-flytrap has leaves with spikey edges and the middle vein of each leaf works like a hinge. The leaves of the pitcher plant are folded around to form a slender pitcher. When a fly lands on the he slides down a slippery surface. At the bottom of the pitcher there is some gooey liquid which drowns the fly and digests his juices Not all the carnivorous plants live on land. The bladderworts live in fresh waters and salt sea waters. These stringy little water weeds have dozens of bladder-shaped balloons with hairy trapdoors All sorts of wormy midgets swim in the water When one of them happens to touch the the little bag puffs up and sucks him down to be digested Queetione asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.
