Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, May 16, 1773 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. See specialist for nausea test Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON Dear Dr. Lamb We seek j'our column as soon as the paper is delivered and have read your helpful advise to others. May I ask you a spe- cial favor for a mystifying con- dition that exists at our home? An early reply may ease our worried minds. It is now two years since my sister (83 years old) was stricken with this illness. Truth- fully, I think it is a case of nerves, due to nothing to occu- py her mind. She has lived alone for many years like a cocoon, making no friends and being very suspicious of peo- ple wanting to mind her busi- ness. She became Fearful of liv- ing alone. I am her only sis- ter. She had fallen at times, lost the sight of one eye through glaucoma, and was her to a stomach specialist? Dear Reader Persistent nausea is a symptom, not a diagnosis. It can be caused by nervous tension and a var- iety of disorders of the diges- tive tract, including hiatal her- nia, and changes in the brain associated with fatty deposits in the arteries. Individuals past 80 often have poor circulation to the brain. There are so many changes which occur in the brain and its control of the personality and functions of the entire body, that it is sometimes dif- ficult to pinpoint them. Your sister may be responding less well to stress, and may be hav- ing changes in personality be- cause of changes in her arter- ies. It would be wise to have your sister checked carefully by a gastroenterologist, a specialist fearful cf falling and breaking i in stomach problems. He could an arm or leg. We belong to a very fine med- ical plan, got her to join, went to the numerous, thorough tests and earns through "with a clean slate of health. She has con- tinuous nauseas, wakes up with it. and it lasts all day, but she never loses her food. The only thing they found was a hiata'l hernia. The doctor said at this age it wasn't advisable to op- erate. She wasn't satisfied and fear- ed cancer o[ the stomach, so ve took her to another doctor ard he too couldn't find any- thing wrong. I think it is "psy- chosomatic." After reading this descrip- tion, what is your diagnosis and would you suggest we take i Fun with figures i .1. A. II. HUNTER Doug was yawning when he came in for breakfast. "What time did vou come home last j asked Andy. "I didn't! hear j "Not so late, the boy replied. "I checked with your clock, and the minute hand was exactly on a minute mark 17 minutes ahead of the hour hand." What time was it? examine the status of her hia- tal hernia to see if it is a con- tributing factor. If she has a fairly persistent one, lying flat at night may be causing her problem. The acid digestive juices may be spilling back into the lower part of her eso- phagus, causing irritation of the esophagus and neusea. It is probably true that sur- gery isn't indicated in her age If tht, hiatal hernia is a problem, careful attention to medical management may help a great deal. This would in- clude elevation of the head of the bed, small meals, neutrali- zation of any excess acid ste might have (this may not be a problem in her age group) avoidig anything tight around her waist, such as belts, cloth- j ing, girdles, and avoiding stoop- J ing. The doctor could advise j her regarding the over-all as- j pects of living patterns to give i her maximum benefit.

Butterflies Andy sends a complette 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Joey DeVito. age 12, of Mundelein, Illinois for his question: Do caterpillars really become butterflies? In early summer, a certain zebra striped caterpillar may be found dining on milkweed leaves. He bears no resem- blance brown at all to a and orange beauteous monarch CAD NAME VANCOUVER (CP) Since booze abuse is bad for the s image, the Association of Cana- dian Distillers is setting up a butterfly. Yet this is his des- tiny. The caterpillar devours enough food for a lifetime, then changes into a green pupa. In- side the crisp shell, his body is remodeled completely and he or she emerges as an adult winged monarch. This kind of biological happening is one of nature's miracles. All insects start life as eggs and many of them develop through several Tstmrmwmmsmtmsai I wings of the adults. Their newly hatched larvae are caterpillars. One might never guess that the caterpillars are remotely relat- ed to their velvety-winged par- ents. For example, an adult tiger swallowtail has large graceful wings, splashed with yellows, bordered with bluish greys and rows of multicolored dots. His body is in three clearly defined sectionsn and his s'x legs are attached to the center, thorax section. He has a pair of slend- er antennas, compound eyes and syphon type mouth parts for sipping liquids. But that gor- geous creature was not always thus He spent several hungry weeks of his life as a caterpil- lar. The unrecognizable charact- er's body was just one long green segmented tube. On his shoulders, he wore a couple of circles tint resembled over- sized eyes.

I JS The bidding: South West North East 1 IV Pass Pass 3 NT Pass 'Pass Pass A potential ten-trick swing hinged on West's selection of an opening lead against South's three no trump con- tract. The first round of bidding requires no comment. How- ever, South was confronted with an interesting problem when West's one heart over- call was passed back to him. Inasmuch as North was un- able to take action, it ap- peared unlikely that the partnership could score a game in clubs which would require the winning of 11 tricks. On the other hand, South observed that it would be a cmch to scramble home with nine tricks at no trump, pro- vided that West led a heart. South accordingly jumped to three to trump which be- came the final contract. West gave careful consid- pration to his opening "shot. If he led the queen of hearts to dislodge the king, he w o u 1 d probably establish fne tricks for himself in that suit. However. West lacked a quick card of reen- try and he feared that the unit of time surrendered to the declarer, by giving the latter a trick at the outset, might deal the defense a fa- tal blow. West decided to lead from his sequence in diamonds in the hope of finding his part- ner with something in that suit. The king of diamonds was opened and East sig- naled encouragement with the seven. When the king held, West continued with the queen on which South dropped the jack, A third round of diamonds enabled East to mop up the suit, and now a heart shift thru de- clarer's king turned the deal into a total rout. The defense scored four diamond tricks and six hearts for a net profit of points. If West had led the queen of -hearts originally, South would have taken all 13 trick's.

Vancouver Is- land had been annexed to the colony of British Colum- bia in 1866, but it became clear that wider union was necessary to save the united cclory from economic disas- ter.

The caterpillar's tody suited his life style, at least until he had gorged enough solid food to last the rest of his life. Then hormones that govern biological growth and develop- ment triggered some changes. Our caterpillar grew a crisp case around his body and be- came a pupa. He spun a short silken rcpe to attach himself to a cherry tnig and appear- ed to sink into a deep sleep. But oh, no, the little body in ithe pupa case was not asleep. The hormones that govern his development were organizing a biological remodeling job. The cells that made his former caterpillar parts separated and mixed together in a soupy liq- uid. As the change called me- tamorphosis progressed, the cells were rearranged complete- ly to form the body of an adult tiger swallowtail butter- fly. When the mysterious miracle was complete, the model was ready to crack open his pupa shell and emerge. At first he was a pale and helpless creature w th drooping wings. In about 20 minutes the sunny a i r dried his wings. It took about two hours for his wings to show their full gorgeous colors. This miracle of complete me- tamorphosis happens in the life of every butterfly. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.
