Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy THE MAGNET Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Vicki age of St. Marys. for her question What makes a magnet attract and A metal magnet pulls and holds slivers of steel. So we know that its magical force extends outside the metal. two ends are its north and south poles. The north poles of two magnets repel each other. So do their two south poles. But a pair of north and south magnetic poles attracts each other and cling together. The magnetic force that causes these happenings occurs in- side the iron magnet and ex- tends outside it. This mystery takes us down to the mini-world of atoms and the tiny particles from which they are made. The same thing happens in all magnets so let's explore the process in a simple little bar magnet. It is made of iron atoms that are all alike. Each atom is a tight-fisted nucleus in the centre of whirling electrons The main particles in the nucleus are charged with positive electricity Each whirling electron has a negative equal and opposite to one proton Every iron atom has exactly 26 protons in its nucleus and room for 26 swirling electrons All its electrons swirl around in the same creating a mini- breeze as they go In a numerous atoms are tilted so that their electron breezes blow together in the same direction Iron atoms are so small that a row of 100 million of them measures about one inch. Zillions of them are jam- packed in a small bar of iron And each atom creates its tiny breeze of swirling electrons. If the iron bar is not a its atoms are tilted so that their electron breezes whirl in different directions and cancel each other out. One tiny electron breeze amounts to almost nothing at all. But when zillions of them whirl together in the same they whip up quite a storm. In a numerous atoms are arranged so that their electron breezes blow together as a team. they create the magnetic force that extends outside the magnet. This force is not the same as the positive and negative charges of protons and electrons. When zillions of electron breezes inside the magnet blow as their magnetic force extends outside the metal and loops in lines between the magnet's two poles In some mysterious way. this magnetic force creates two opposite magnetic poles. Its north pole attracts the south pole of another magnet Opposites attract each other. Two south poles repel each so do two north poles It is not necessary to line all of their electron breezes in the same direction. Actually they are arranged in magnetic centers called each of which has a team of perhaps a thousand-million atoms whose electron breezes blow in the same direction. If an iron bar has enough of these their combin- ed force makes it into a magnet Questions asked by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box. Huntington California 92648. Chronicle Publishing Co. Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Dur- ing everyday life I must suffer the consequences of having hands that perspire too much. I have heard that there is a chemical or medication which can eliminate sweating but that it is harmful in some way What is this medication17 How dangerous is and where can I get it9 Dear Reader Exces- sively sweaty palms are a major handicap for some particularly the young It is a social handicap because the person with the problem hesitates to shake hands It can make it very dif- ficult for young girls to do stenographic and there are countless occupations where wet hands simply won't do The actual cause of this problem is not except that it is related to an overac- tive sympathetic nervous a part of the autonomic system that you have no control over It is not caused by psy- chological although nervousness or any stressful situation can make the problem worse Medical treatment has been less than satisfactory. The usual antiperspirants are of limited value for short durations Medicines that block the autonomic nervous system functions have been used with some and one of these is probably the medicine you have heard of. These are the same group of medicines used to keep the nervous system from stimulating the stomach to produce too much acid in ul- cer patients. These are atropine or atropine-like drugs. They do have some side such as drying of the mouth or even blurring the but these are not undu- ly severe. Patients who take these medicines regularly for ulcer problems tolerate them without any difficulty. A new development in treat- ment of this problem is a sur- gical approach. Dr. Donald F a neurosurgeon at the Cleveland has developed an operation which removes the part of the nerves that stimulate the sweating action in the arms and hands. It should also help in patients with excessive underarm sweating that can't be controlled by other measures. Dr Dohn's procedure is he reaches the nerves near the spine where they originate. The operation is through the back with one in- cision. He has developed a special Which is not likely to cause any serious side effects and is pretty well limited to controlling the sweating problem. Thus far he reports that he has had ex- cellent results. I am sure other neurosurgeons can do the same in fact a different type of operation called a sympathectomy used to be fairly for other and is more com- plicated. I don't think the variations in technique he has developed to simplify the procedure and prevent un- wanted complications should be seriously considered by anyone operating for this problem Your doctor could contact Dr. Dohn is he wants more information for you. Send your to Dr. in care of this new- P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 1M19. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on con- send 50 cents to the same address and ask for booklet.

Getting your life together in a single har- monious current of happy ex- perience means much collecting from far and considerable selection among possible social initiative in applying what has already come into your hands.

GEMINI 21-June Tested routines continue moderate but avoid haste Boredom or fantasy can lead to carelessness. It's better to interrupt early than to go on and spoil things. CANCER 21-July What you seek far afield is probably right in your own backyard Money gets away with every passing particularly with younger peo- ple unless special con- ditions limit you. LEO 23 Aug. Make this a quiet day of minding your own business. Working alone brings swift progress Concentrate on situations where others don't have to concern themselves or catch up with you. VIRGO 23 Sept. Overattention to superficial items blurs your view of the whole scene Step get down to fundamen- tals and make your moves decisively while the moving is good LIBRA 23-Oct. Long-term actions have their expectable indifferent or mix- ed If you don't like begin to change the habits you could have changed long ago SCORPIO 23-Nov. Your expression is taken by others as much stronger than you had so under- state rather than emphasize. It's a good time for bringing vexing questions to confrontation. SAGITTARIUS 22- Dec. What now seems reasonable to promise or ex- pect turns out later to be out of line with reality. Short trips bring slight while long journeys are favored at this time. CAPRICORN 22-Jan.

For a handful of they are prepared to play in the wrong game contract. Today's South let honors blind his but fortunately he possessed the skill to redeem himself in the play. Not even the strictest theo- retician could take exception to the first two bids in the auction. South's rebid is open to question. His hand almost certainly will produce seven tricks at a no trump and nine tricks usually are easier to make than ten. He should have been prepared to give up on his honors and simply rebid three offering North a choice of contracts. With North as declarer at a no trump ten tricks can be made on any lead. West led the jack of and declarer was faced with the prospect of four losers in the minor suits. It was un- likely that West held the king of but the finesse couldn't so declarer tried the queen from dum- my. East won the king and returned the West's seven forcing dummy's ace. The queen-jack of hearts offered some but de- clarer needed two entries to dummy to establish a heart for he would first have to unblock the ace of hearts in his hand. the club attack had removed one of dummy's entries pre- maturely. The only chance for an extra entry lay in the trump could finesse the eight if West held the he would have a second entry. This play risked going down but the extra 100 points was a small price to pay in an at- tempt to win the game. Since this was the only declarer crossed to his hand with the ace of led the deuce of trumps to dummy's eight' and closed his eyes. When he opened them he saw that East had followed with the three. The queen of hearts was led and declarer discarded his remaining club as West won the king. The club re- turn was ruffed in the closed a trump was led to dummy's ace and the jack of hearts was de- clarer discarding a diamond. He returned to his hand with the ace of diamonds to draw the last trump and then con- ceded a diamond trick. His only losers were one trick in each plain suit. by H caff MARRIAGE THAWSA COPY ITSKEEREP HER VJARWTTMAT A SMART MOVED' MOSrSTOOFlD EVEN LIFE.'.'-SHE'S FO' TH'TOWM _______by dwta MKU WOODSTOCK MAKE5 A LOOSV SNORT MBS TWffM INJUNS ARE SAJNIN'ON US.
