Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, May 15, 1973 LAWRENCE E LAMB, MD Harmless home remedy for warts By JEANE DIXON Dear Dr. Lamb I that were as long as my little much interested in your answer fingernail and left a deep cone- to matter about warts re- j shaped hole uhich soon healed moval and decided to write with no further trouble. about mv experience, perhaps it could help someone else this time. Back in 1930 my small daugh- ter had a wat corns under her fingernail ard it pushed the nail up and was very painful, as you might know. I wrote to a doctor's column at the time and asked what I could do as I had done everything our local doctor had told me. The answer was to get a small bottle of "flexible cover the wait and keep it cov- ered with this for 10 days or longer. It dries on and acts like a second skin. Then you should be able to lift the wart cut with tweezers or jour fing- worked like magic and ers.

I'm including your letter and the one below to give all the readers other suggestions on treating warts Dear Dr. Lamb You an- swered a correspondent's query about plantar warts, naming several means of treatment. However, you did not mention the best treatment cf all. I spent 23 years, before my retirement, in the Low Temper- ature Laboratory of the Univer- sity of California where we li- quefied ak, fractionating it into liquid oxygen and liquid nitro- gen, Ebo liquefying hydrogen and helium. Many times we had occasion to treat plantar with liquid nitrogen. By using a small cotton swab, dip- ping it in liquid nitrogen, and applying it to a wart until it turned white (frozen) the wart was cured. It was practically painless, the skin was not bro- ken to admit infection and all that was necessary, besides tfas freezing of it, was to cover the HauJ garbage v_ froi and works e harmless too I believe borne j %vart wlth a and forget ccrn remedies have collodion it for a week or so and it for a base too i corns off like scab.

It is rnudi beater than acids, an elec- tric needle, surgery, tape, or any other method with which I am familiar.

GOREN 1573 The Cftiajo TnbuM Both vulnerable. East deals N'ORTIf A K953 Pass 6 V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Jack of 4k South, the declarer at six hearts, permitted his oppo- nent to score a trick the ten of hearts despite the fact that the former had a solid holding in trumps. However, this apparent gift was an essential ingredient to a successful campaign. East opened the bidding with a preemptive call of three spades, and South ov- ercalled with four hearts. There was little room left for investigation and no oth- er suitable bid available to him. North felt warranted in making a slam try by raising beyond game to five hearts inasmuch as he held some strategic values in the ace-queen of clubs and the king-queen of trumps. South required no more encourage- ment to carry on to slam, since he had first round con- trol of the opponents' suit. Altho a club lead would have sealed South's doom, West can hardly be faulted for selecting the more nor- mal opening of the jack of spades, which was ducked by the dummy and East and ruffed in the closed hand. South began drawing trump by leading over to the queen of hearts and low back to the jack in his hand. When West showed out on the sec- ond round, declarer aban- doned the suit and switched his attention to diamonds. He cashed the ace of dia- monds and continued with the king. East ruffed with the ten of hearts; however, he found himself to be end- played. He was reluctant to lead away from the king of clubs with the ace and queen in full view, so he returned the ace of spades. South ruffed, played the queen of diamonds and then ruffed away West's jack on the next round with North's king of hearts. After the three of clubs was discarded on the king of spades, the ace of clubs was cashed and South's hand was high. Ha had lost only one ten of hearts. Had declarer started by drawing three rounds of trumps, he would have gone down to defeat after the club finesse fails. He must lose a diamond trick as well when that suit fails to divide even- ly. By first testing dia- monds, South remains in po- sition to safely draw the last trump, if both opponents fol- low to two rounds of dia- monds, for he is now as- sured of at least 12 tricks. Observe that East would not have benefited by refus- ing to ruff the second round of diamonds. Declarer will continue with the queen and, if that card is also permitted to hold, he can trump the fourth diamond in dummy with the king of hearts. Fish species Andy sends a complete 20- vohune set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to An- tionette Smith, age 12, of Winston Salem, North Caro- lina, for her question: Which are the different fish species? Ichthyologists have listet more than different fishes and a fair description of al the species would fill a fair sized library. fishy multi- tude is sorted and separated into large, small and smaller groups so that each type has a genus name and his own per- sonal specres name. This helps us to see similarities and rela- tionships in the various groups. However, it is very unfortunate that the fish experts of the world cannot agree on the same sorting system. The fishes have had more than 400 million years to branch out in various shapes and sizes. Many of the more primitive types died oat a s more advanced ones arrived and survived in the fresh and salt waters of the modern world. Ichthyologists have identified and (sorted about 600 of these existing species into three major classes, which some call superclasses. The experts are not agreed on how major classes should be subdivided into smaller groups of more closely related species. However, most systems included 40 to 45 orders and some include a few categories called subclasses and subor- ders. This is confusing to stu- dents interested in the fish world, let's hope the world- wide ichthyologiste finally agree on a single system of classifi- cation. Three major classes or super- classes separate the well- known bony fishes from the sharks and the jawless lam- preys. Class Agwatha, the jaw- less ones, includes about 235 species of lamprey and hog- fish types. Class Chondrich- thyes, the gristle-tome fishes, includes about 600 sharks, rays and chimera typss. The great majority belong in Class Os- teichthyes the bony fisihes. The or so species in this popular group are separated in 35 or so smaller orders. One of everybody's favorites is Order Clupeiforms, which is crowded with silvery herrings and stuffed with sardines Some systems include the rich sal- mon and trout in this order. Others group them with an as- sortment cf pikes and minnows m Order Salmoniformes. An- other system groups some of the minnows with the catfish, the carp and goldfish, the elec- tric eel and the voracious little piranha. The largest and most famous group is Oader Perciformss, the spiny-rayed fishes. It in- cludes the perch and to typical fishy types fishes of fresh and salt waters. Some systems include in this group the mackerel and the snapper, the bass and the whopping tuna and the bad-tempered bsrra- cuda. t- In most eases, an order as i large and subdivided into sev-1 era! familfes of more clcssly related fishes. A family is sub- divided into genera, and the members of each genus are cousins. Each cousin is an in- dividual species. The genus and species names often vary. This, sad to say, because ichthy- ologists are not agreed on how their or so subjects should be sorted, classed and named.
