Loses weight on personal diet Dear Dr. Lamb I have been reading various articles on women with weight prob- lems. I am in my 50s and six DionLhs ago I weighed 215 pounds. I thought nothing of it and just kept right on eating. An accident caused me to go to the doctor and he asked me in 11 gentle way to try eating half of what I was eating, along with giving up sweets and starches. I marie up my own diet which tire doctor checked. My diet consisted of an abun- dance of. will power pills, aJong with chicken, tuna, baked fish, roast end steak and a stuffed green pepper now and then, with such vegetables as broc- coli, cauliflower, green beans, lettuce, salad and also a lot of cottage cheese. I drank tomato Juice for breakfast, coffee, tea, cream of wheat, and once in a while two strips of bacon fried crisp. Dear Reader Thank you for your nico letter. You are living proof that one of the prin- ciples in losing weight is reduc- ing calories and a good way for a person to do this is indeed to just decrease the quantity of everything they hove been eat- ing. The diet you describe. above has certain important features. It contains quite a bit of protein from chicken, tuna, I bkcd fish and other items that you mentioned. Any diet, even for losing weight, should include a signifi cant amount of vegetables, which you have described. These provide bulk and keep the person satisfied. Cottage cheese is excellent. For losing weight I usually recommend un- creamed or low-fat cottage cheese. Following such a sen- sible diet consistently will cause eight loss. Dear Dr. Lamb I would like to ask you about catsup. My two sons and ooe of the wives and a grandson are all crazy about It. They have cat- sup on any meal, every day, even on fried eggs. I have cau- tioned my sons that catsup might not" be good for their health but I would like to bear what you say about it. Dear Reader There is noth- ing wrong with catsup, except for those, people who cannot tolerate spicy foods or bavc to eliminate salt from their diet because of medical problems. Caisup after all is mostly to- matoes and spices. Catsup has gone a long way to rescue a lot of unpalatable meals. ing to news stories one of the nation's leading citizens likes the combination of cottnge cheese and catsup.

Failure to fully capitalize on those odds proved costly to the declarer when he ran into a highly unfavorable division in trumps. West's takeout double ot SouUYs opening spade bid elicited a somewhat re- luctant Iwo diamond re- tponse by East, South re- quired very little from part.. ner to produce a play for Kl tricks and since he did not have outstanding defensive potential, South decided In capitalize on the favorable vulnerability conditions and put U right up to the opposi- tion by leaping directly to four spades. West opened tho king of hearts on which dummy played the three. East the) deuce and South the four. In order to prevent the. estab- lishment of tho queen and Jack o[ hearts for potential eluffs, West shifted to a dia- mond at trick two and North played the nee.

He attempted to sneak into dummy by leading the len of clubs, but West played the king and relumed another diamond. East covered the len with the queen and South ruffed. There was no way for the latter to avoid the loss of two hearts, one club, and one spade. Altho a I h r e e-nothing trump breal: is admittedly a long shot. South was in posi- tion to cinch his contract against any holding except three spades in the West hand. At Jrick (wo u'hen Ihe spade is Icil from dummy, it is suggested that he play the jack from his hand. Even if This Iridc loses to the queen.

(1972: Ily The Chicago Tribune) Megapodes Andy sends a complete 20- volumne of the Merit Student Encyclopedia to Terry Pres- lon. age 11, of Cobourg, On- tario, for his question: IVdat are nicgapodes? This is a story of turkey- birds and large feet, incubators and warm ocean islands. The turkey type birds are called megapodes because the name means big foot. They are the only family of birds that build incubators, instead of hatching their eggs in the ususal way. The 20 or so species of the family enjoy life In Australia, New Guinea and many smallish islands of the mid-Pacific. The megapodes are classed with the galliformes, or chic- ken type birds. Like all their numerous relatives, they scratch and peck on the ground for a living. Their stubby breaks, strong legs and sturdy claws are very suilable for this life stylo. The group iucludes shy quails and grouse, turkeys and ptarmigans, proud pea- cocks and fancy pheasants. Some galliformes prefer the megapodes and many other interesting species prefer the Arctic; the megapodes and many other Interesting species prefer the tropics and semi- tropics. The smallest megapodes are chicken sized, the largest are as big as turkeys. They have sturdy bodies, very strong legs and extra large feet with extra sharp claws even for galli- rormcs. In their native haunts, they are called brush turkeys and scrub fowl, moundbuilders and mallee fowl, leipoa and thermometer birds. They are remarkable because they build mounds of debris in which to ncubale their eggs. As a rule, 'he necessary warmth Is pro- vided by decaying vegetation. But certain bold parents en- trust their precious eggs to sands warmed by underground volcanic activity. In Australia, the enormous mounds once were mistaken for native burial grounds. A heap of earth and vegetation may be 50 feet wide and ID feet high It is thought that several gen erations of parent megapodes scratch and scrape together the ten or more tons of debris to build it. The great pile of de- caying compost may be super vised by one male bird in charge of several females Some observers suspect tha certain mounds may belong to just a couple of parents. In any case, both parents are highly sensitive to the tempera- ture of their do-it-yourself in cubator. When it reaches about 95 degrees Fahrenheit, the fe- male selects a site high on the mound and drills deep slanting holes, one for each of her five to eight eggs. When the eggs are covered, the heat of the compost begins to perform its magic. The anxious parents stand by, checking and adjust- ing the temperature. When the mound gets too hot, (he male bird drills ventilation holes. When things are too cool, he adds more decomposing debris. In a few weeks, the white, thin shelled eggs turn coffee brown. But the chicks are nol ready to hatch for at least two months. After such a long incu- bation period, they are fully developed and ready to go. Though the parents are poor fliers, the chicks take to the ai; within a few hours. The adult megapodes let them perhaps the youngsters come back later to brood their own eggs in the old family incuba- tor.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1572) Diary of death HUE, South Vietnam (AP) "The shelling is terrible; I will die a North Viet- namese soldier wrote in his diary. An artillery barrage proved lu'm right. The diary, which South Viet- namese officers said was found on a body just north of My Chanh, 20 miles above this threatened key northern city, read: Enemy shells continue for more hours. There isn't a minute they don't come in. So many shells make you run from your fox- hole like a thousand naves splashing the shore Translators said the pas- sage, written in poetic, abbre- viated Vietnamese, carried a notation asking the finder to deliver it to Nguyen Dinh Quo, a Hanoi civil servant; the soldier's brother. The soldier, who was not named, wrote that he entered flic army seven months ago, leaving Hanoi before the Tet (lunar new year) and crossing into South Vietnam on May 2 along the Ho Chi Minh trail. "I die for either the glory of my counliy or the humiliation of my people so thai, my fellow soldiers "ill gain vic- tory or so that my blood will stain the red flag in the imperial ciry of Hue."
