Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LITHtniDQI HERALD November Ask Andy PLANT OXYGEN Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to John age of for his Do trees really use Some weeks ago Andy reported that trees use oxygen and return carbon dioxide to the air. This was challenged by several polite friends and a couple of people not so friendly. They were sure that Andy told the story backwards because plants use carbon dioxide and give off oxygen The fact is that both statements are true and either one tells only half the story. Almost everybody knows that green plants absorb carbon dioxide and pour out breathable oxygen. During the miraculours process of they use the energy of sunlight to manufac- ture basic plant food from water and dissolved chemicals which they get form the soil and carbon dioxide which they get from the air The gas from this wondrous operation is ox- ygen. All this is true. But plants also carry on another exchange of gases. The living cells of both plants and animals use oxygen as a fuel for their chemical ac- tivities. These miraculous ac- tivities are the very processes of life itself. In this operation is called or breathing In plants it is called tran- spiration Both respiration and transpiration use gaseous oxygen as a fuel and produce waste carbon dioxide. We breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide day and night. So do trees and other plants. We cannot reuse any of this waste carbon diox- ide But the plants can. Day and the plant and animal worlds use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Dur- ing the daylight green plants also use the carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. The surfaces of green leaves and stems are riddled with small which allow the gaseous air to pass in and out. As this mixture of gases cir- culates among the living plant they take the oxygen molecules they need and return molecules of carbon dioxide which eventually seep out through the pores This goes on day and night At green chlorophyll cells start up their photosynthesis operation. They absorb molecules of carbon dioxide from the air that seeps in through the pores. Eventually the gas from the photosynthesis process seeps put through the pores. And it is oxygen oxygen to supply all the animals and people with gaseous fuel to carry on the processes of life. We keep plants thinking that they pour fresh breathable oxygen into the air. So they but only during the daylight. After dark photosynthesis which produces oxygen shuts down But plant transpiration con- tinues to use oxygen and give out waste carbon dioxide. At the plant and animal world compete for the same gases. Questions asked by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box. Huntington California 92648. Chronicle Publishing Co. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov. 1973 Adolf Hitler's beer-hall putsch in Munich began 50 years ago today in 1923 when Hitler and supporters seized the Bavarian govern- ment and Munich police of- ficials The following day police fired on a Nazi procession going through the city and the revolt dis- sipated. Hitler was found guil- ty of high treason and given the minimum sentence five years He served only part of his term in the fortress of Landsberg and spent the time writing Mem Kampf. 1960 Democratic Senator John F.

In dupli- cate failure to make an overtrick can result in as bad a score as going down in a in rubber making the contract is the paramount objective. Consider today's hand.

Even when East ruffs the third dia- m o n d declarer is not through. Since dummy's eight of trumps is an entry to the fourth East must shift to a spade. De- clarer is still home if East holds the ace of spades. Un- West has that so the defenders will be able to cash three spade tricks and South will go down one.

LAMB My husband has a slow heart and his pulse goes down to 34 and a few times 32. If he gets out- side and digs around it gets up to 42 He does at times seem to have some high blood but has not taken anything for it in over a year Fifteen years ago he had a heart block and it left a scar through the heart. He is 72. We have a garden which he takes care of He keeps up our yard and trims our hedge but tires easily His doctor tells him to just live with but you tell me what foods are best for people like that DEAR READER The most immediate problem for your husband is to evaluate how well his heart functions mechanically. You don't men- tion any problems that com- monly occur when there is a heart block that causes a very slow and perhaps he has none. The slow heart rate in this instance means that the nor- mal impulses from the top of the heart are not getting to the lower part of the heart As longj as the heart is able to pump enough blood this way to provide good circulation to the individuals with this problem do fairly well. If there is a problem in circula- tion to the brain then fainting and other problems develop. These problems cannot be avoided. In patients who need a faster a pacemaker can be installed that stimulates the heart electrically to a rate that maintains good circulation Evaluating who does and does not need a pacemaker is not a simple office procedure. Unless your doctor is a heart specialist I would ask him about a referral consulation with a cardiologist in a centre where pacemakers are install- ed to see if your husband needs one or not. It is entirely possible that he doesn't need one or there may be reasons why he is doing better as he but it would be good to have the situation clarified Diets for this problem are the same as for all other problems related to fatty deposits in the arteries to the heart that lead to heart at- tacks. If there is a weight problem it should be controlled. The and par- ticularly the saturated in the diet from mammal sources should be and cholesterol found in animal foods .should be limited. I'm sure your doctor can help you with this DEAR DR. LAMB Will you please explain why out- ward hemorrhoids itch so much. Can they become cancerous from so much rub- bing9 DEAR READER Inter- nal hemorrhoids are but they are the ones that bleed The external ones are located immediately under the external skin where there is an abundant nerve supply. A hemorrhoid is just a varicose vein of the rectal area and the dilated vein can sometimes become clotted which results in swelling and irritation This will either rup- ture and expelling the small clot that will or else it will dry up and be left as a small tag of tissue These can sometimes cause itching thereafter. Rubbing and scratching can cause irritation of any area on the body and is usually not recommended but it will not cause cancer. Anyone who has any rectal problem should have a com- plete medical examination Hemorrhoids sometimes pop out because of pressure against the veins. The pressure may be caused by a tumor above the hemorrhoids That's too important a problem to so let the doctor make sure that it's just hemorrhoids Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O.
