Ignoring odds. Capt. Fogarty Fegen steered straight for the enemy until all guns were knocked out and the Jervis Bay sank. Only 65 of a crew of 255 were saved. The sacrifice of the Jervis Bay enabled all but four of the unarmed freighters to escape. Capt. Fegen was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. 1688 Prince William of Orange landed in England to assume the English throne, displacing the unpopular Catholic king, James II. 1914 Britain annexed Cyprus. 1930 Sinclair Lewis was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. 1934 The League of Nations questioned Japanese officials on reports that Japan was fortifying former German islands in the Pacific. 1940 Franklin D.

There is a sea horse and a sea bat, a sea fox and a sea hound, a sea robin and a sea raven. All of them are fishes named for land-dwelling animals. Among this group of mixed-up characters we would surely expect to find one named for the gentle cow. And so there is. He is called the cowfish. His relatives include a weird and wonderful assortment of oddities called the trunkfishes. If you come face to face with a cowfish. through the glass walls of an aquarium, you would recognize him in a moment. He stares from a pair of round cowlike eyes. He has a stubby cowlike face with a pair of horns on top of his head. Certainly, his head reminds you of a puppy-sized seagoing cow. But since he is a genuine fish, he has fins for swimming instead of legs for walking. The cowfish belongs in a very remarkable group called the trunkfishes. The trunk refers to the bony boxes that cover almost all of their bodies. This sturdy armor is made from closely knit six- sided plates. The small round mouth, with sharp teeth and crushing jaws, is free to move. So is the tail section, with its fan-shaped fin. The rest of the body is sealed in- side the rigid, boxy trunk. Most of the trunkfishes en- joy life in warm and tropical seas, though the cowfish may live farther north. Their bony- outfits come in odd shapes, often six-sided, with a flat sec- tion at the bottom. Their ar- rnor tends to make them slow and clumsy, which may ex- plain why they prefer to live in the lower levels of shallow water. Usually, their armor plating is dotted, spotted and bedeck- ed with eye-catching color schemes. However, they do not attract attention in their natural environments. Many live in coral reefs, where their vivid coloring blends with the rainbow-tinted surroundings, The cowfishes are at home along both sides of the Atlan- tic Ocean. The American types are found along shores from Massachusetts all the way south to Rio de Janeiro. Most of our native cowfish have horns on their heads, though some do not. All of them wear startling decors, usually in patterns of contrasting yellow or blue and white. Some are yellow with bold white polka dots. Others wear blotches and wavy rib- bons of blue on a yellow background. The female cowfish lays batches of tiny eggs that measure about 32 to an inch. They float to the surface where they hatch in two or three days. The hatchlings are little round larvas that do not resemble their parents. They hide among the waterweeds, where they look like tiny angel faces with big wide eyes, puffy cheeks and mini-mini mouths. Some people call them dingleberries. The tough-coated trunk- fishes dine on tough chewy food. Those that live along reefs bite off bits of rock and digest the little coral animals inside. The cowfish often spouts jets of water to stir up the sandy sea floor. This reveals an assortment of small mollusks, worms and crustaceans which he grabs and devours.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 59 and suffer from con- stipation. You recommended coarse foods for constipation. I have pockets on my colon and I'm not allowed to eat any foods with fibers or seeds or skins. And also, I can't drink milk. It gives me gas. I drink decaffeinated coffee using' one-fourth teaspoon of powder to a cup. Do you think that would cause me to have gas? My doctor gave me some capsules to take called Dox- idan. and when I have a bowel movement I have a burning in my rectum from the capsule. I would like to know if the cap- sule would be bad for my colon. I give myself enemas a lot and would like to know if that is o.k. What would be best for constipation and what foods should I avoid and which ones should I eat? Dear Reader Those pockets are diverticula and the current thinking is that constipation and poor bowel habits are part of the reason they develop. Fun with figures Bv J.A.H. Hunter Each distinct letter in this addition stands for a par- ticular but different digit. It all adds up to THREE, of course. ?o what is that? L F TS T A T T II R E PrtT If you don't have an infected pocket or bleeding or a small perforation of one of them, the associated constipation is usually the main problem. You really need a change in your total bowel pattern. You should be eating foods with bulk. That means whole cereals and bulky vegetables in considerable amount. Your colon will not function properly, with or without diverticula, until you eat properly, and that includes proper amounts of bulk. That laxative and enema habit has merely made matters worse. Doxidan is a chemical laxative. It has some useful purposes but should not be used regularly and the same applies to ail other chemical laxatives. A bulk expander would be useful until you get straightened out. You need a good program for training your bowel habit and to train your normal responses. It won't be easy since you obviously have a long standing problem, as do many people who suffer from constipation and spastic colon. You will be able to get some help from two booklets, one on constipation and another on divertirulosis. They will tell you more about bowel training. You can get them by writing to me in care of this newspaper. P.O. Box 1551. Radio City Station. New York, N.Y. 10019. Ask for the booklets on constipation and diverlii-ulosis.
