This gives rise to the sensation of a skipped beat. Sometimes the second beat is stronger because more blood bas accumulated In the heart during the pause. Many people have these and are lolally unaware of them. The difference is probably a matter of hoiv forceful 'lie sec- ond beat Is as well as bow sen- sitive the person is. Now that you arc aware of them you are more concerned about them, and this can aggravate the problem. When I evaluated thousands of apparently healthy men flying aircaft this was the most frequent irregularity of the heart and occurred in all ages, even in some of tlie as- tronauts.

In the rest of your letter you have indicated that in your case they are all normal. Falntness after a hot bath can occur in young healthy people. The heat relaxes the blood ves- sels, and when you first stand up there is a tendency for the blood to accumulate in the lower part of the body and cause faintness. The longer one stays in a hot tub and sweats, the more likely this is to occur.

Dinosaur relatives Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dent encyclopedia to Angela Marshall, age 11, of St. Louis, Missouri, for her question: What is the dinosaur's closest living relative? Modern animals come In a vast variety of shapes and sizes, though only about of them are reptiles. If we could see the earth as it was 100 million years ago, we might be surprised to find almost as many different shaped animals though most of them would be reptiles. This was, of course, the Age of Reptiles, when the fantastic dinosaurs dominated the realm of animals. They were the remote ancestors of Ibe more than reptiles that now Inhabit the earth. Almost modern lizards are classified in the Suborder Sauria, the same group in which the ancient dinosaurs be- longed. These fantastic reptiles of the Mesozoic Era thrived for more than 100 million years. Then quite suddenly, four fam- ilies of their largest, most mon- strous s p r c i e s disappear- ed from the land and the seas. This was about 60 million years ago. However, all of the rep- tiles did not perish and the Order Reptilia is a great one for branching out In assorted shapes and sires. For example, long after the dinosaurs depart- ed, the snakes developed from reptile ancestors that had legs. Though young reptiles resem- ble their parents, some species tend to change very slightly [rom generation to generation. The differences are too small to notice during 60 thousand years but after 60 milb'on years the descendants may be differ- ent species. Without a doubt, all our lizards of the sauria jroup descended from ances- tors that belonged to a fabu- lous dinosaur clan of 100 mil- lion years ago. All of them share basic rep- i Lilian features with their re- mote ancestors. However, time has shrunk their sizes and even the largest lizard is a midget baiiric one of the giant dino- saurs of the pnst. Our biggest lizard is the fen-foot-long Kom- odo dragon, who strongly re- sembles many of the long-gone dinosaurs, though on a smaller scale. He has a similar elong- attfl body and tail, plus squat legs, mighty muscles and fierce meal-eating teeth. Like his an- cient reptilian ancestors, he also is a scaly-skinned, cold- blooded animal who hatches from a soft-shelled egg. Most of these basic features are shared by all our saurian lizards and many of Ihem look like small versions of Ihn ancient dinosaur relatives. We have lizanis spikes and horns, neck frill.s and various flaps of skins. There were din- osaurs with nil of Ihese fea- tures. However, there also were many dinosaurs that ran around on their hind legs anc others that wore fantastic plates of bony armor. These monsters perished, though the tortoise group of the reptilian clan still wear armored shells, We tend to think of the dino- saurs as failures, though for for longer than 100 million years they were the ruling ani> mals of the earth. Their reptil- ian order did not perish with them. The turtles survived with litlle or no changes and so did the crocodiles. Our lizards still resemble saurian ancestors, though on a mini-scale.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1972) Artificial heart dollar I'S away says doctor EDMONTON (CP) An American surgeon who has led the way in open-heart surgery for 20 years says a practical artificial heart Is only dollars away. Dr. C. Walton Lillehei of the University of Minnesota said in an interview that develop- ment of the artificial heart is "an expensive technical prob- lem that can be solved." He added that "we would have artificial hearts in people today if Ihe United Slates gov. ernment had spent anywhere near the money for Its develop- ment that it has on the Apollo space project." Dr. Lillehei made his com- ments after he presented a two-hour report to an over- flowing audience of surgeons, medical students and nurses at the symposium celebrating the 50th anniversary of the surgery department at the University of Alberta.
