Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26-THE NovMilbtr Ask Andy CHINOOK WIND Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Cecile age of Fair- for her What is a chlnook In pioneer the region around the great Columbia River was known as the country of the Chinook In- dians. Later some of the settlers noticed that wonder- ful winds sometimes blew from this direction. came bearing spells of nihM- dry just when the wintry season was at its worst Surely such welcome winds deserved a name and surely the most suitable name was Chinook winds. Winter brings blizzards and deep snows to Montana and to the Dakotas and southwestern Canada. But in these the people have come to expect a mid-winter treat. It arrives when the chinook wind blows down the eastern slopes of the wafting mild dry air over the snows. Often the people look toward the hoping to see its sign in the sky. When a great triangle of clouds is blown like a curtain across half the blue they know that the chinook is on the way. As the air blows down the eastern it grows warmer. When it reaches the the temperature may rise 40 degrees. In a few more than a foot of the deep snow may melt or more likely evaporate into the warm dry air. Often one chinook wind follows another and in a few unlikely cattle may graze outdoor through much of the winter. Naturally this kindly wind is part of the global weather system it is a feature of the prevailing westerlies that across the Pacific Ocean. These cool moist winds reach thejyestern mountains and to continue-on their way they must ascend and descend over the hump. This causes changes in air pressure and the cool wet wind becomes a dry wind. As the ocean winds ascend the western they shed their moisture as ram on the slopes and often as snow on the high peaks. When it reaches the the breezy air is much but still cool. When the wind continues on down the eastern its air is warmed by a process called adiabatic heating. For every 180 feet it drops down the the temperature may rise one degree Fahrenheit. If the chinook wind climbs over a range feet it gets to be about 30 degrees warmer than it was on the other side. By the time it reaches the level the chinook is a rather gusty wind of moderate strength. But it is warm enough to relieve the wont winter weather with a reminder of springtime. Windf of thin sort blow over mountainous regions in other parts of the world. Some meteorologists call them foehan which is what they are called in There these west' winds blow over and down the steep slopes of the Alps. QuMtfont by cMM- of Herald nmdm thOuM IM malted to Andy.

LAMB Would you please print your opinion on the use of raw sugar that you buy in the pure food stores compared to white sugar. I'm taking water pills' and I know that salt will cause the body to maintain water. What do you think about using a salt substitute to cut down on salt My regardless of what doctors is that anyone retaining water in their system should learn to cut down on salt intake and use more flavoring spices to make up the and in time they won't need salt at all. Another my brother and I and some friends have been cutting down on our food intake in order to lose weight so we have been drinking a lot of bouillon but I have noticed that they have a salty so in trying to cut down on our weight by using these are we adding salt which helps us to hold water and still gives us extra DEAR READER There is no significant advantage in using so called raTw-sugar over white sugar. It is stilTftsarly free of other substances in the cane or beet that it is made from. There are only traces of other elements in it. Both are equal in and I notice you want to lose weight. Salt substitutes are fine for people who need to take medicine to eliminate salt. At one time the low salt diet was our mainstay in treating these problems because now com- monplace effective medicines didn't exist. Either one of the salt substitutes you mention in the rest of your letter would be fine for this purpose. you can do a lot by planning your food prepara- tion to eliminate excess intake of sodium salt. Some people can't bring themselves to stay on such a and this is one reason doctors often resort to water pills rather than try to encourage their patients to follow such a diet. The trick is to prepare foods without adding as you men- using spices helps solve the taste problem. You can use artificial salt also in seasoning your foods. bouillon cubes are loaded with and if you and your friends are drinking lots of bouillon you are getting plenty of salt in your diet. Bouillon cubes are just dandy for people who do not need to worry about salt but simply can't be used if you want to stay on a salt restricted diet. You can prepare your own bouillon by boiling or and .saving the juice for this pur- pose. if you you could season it with salt sub- stitute. There is naturally salt in but unless you have a serious problem it won't be enough to make a difference. Since your doctor seems to be unworried about your salt in- it should be okay Retaining water does in- crease pounds of but it is not fat. If you want to get rid of fat you must eliminate more than water. Washing out the body water without losing unwanted fat .deposits is not -helpful in a weight losing progTaHkJThe accompanying loss of saTt'can lead to un- necessary weakness. if you are successful in controll- ing the salt in your your doctor may want to cut back on your water pills.

Senator Hartland Molson says but the Senate is not a farce and a scandal. He was objecting strongly in the Senate to language used in a recent Montreal Gazette editorial. The editorial was highly critical of the Senate. It was written following a recent Canadian Press story analysing corporate director- ships held members of the Senate banking com- which Senator Molson is a member. The 22 banking committee members have 75 per of the reported direc- torships held by Senators. Senate of Canada stinks of the editorial said. reeks of special interest.
