Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy November THI LITHWUOOE HIHACO t INDIAN TURNIPS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Deborah age of North for her What are Indian The early settlers called the people they met in the New World Indians and named many plants for them. In Colonial com was called Indian corn and Indian shamrock was the purple trillium. The candlenut was called Indian walnut and the lovely lupine was Indian beet. Dutchman's breeches was called Indian boys-and-girls and the older name for Jack- in-the-pulpit was Indian tur- nip The Indian turnip sounds as if it should have roots somewhat like turnips and it does. But they are NOT good to eat. most people call it Jack-in-the-pulpit In early it puts on a flower arrangement that looks for all the world like a small preacher standing inside a fancy topped with a leafy canopy. Nobody knows why the stiff little preacher was named Jack. The pretty wild plant grows in moist woods and marshy thickets all the way from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Mexico and westward as far as Minnesota. AH summer it made and stored food in its so that it could get an early start in the spring. As soon as winter is up pop the each one topped with a neat group of three green-green leaves Then from the centre comes a straight stem by about turns into Jack-in-the- pulpit. The top of the stem becomes the poker stiff preacher It is covered with tiny which may be male or female. This is called the spadix. The pulpit is called the spathe. It is shaped like a leafy with its base at- tached to the stem below the spadix. At the wide open end at the one side of the spathe reaches way up and over like a graceful canopy above the preacher. Though the pulpit is streak- ed with greens and pretty it is hot a petal and the flowerets on the preacher have no true petals. Gnats and other flying insects slide into the slippery pulpit and help to transfer pollen from male to female flowerets. From through May and the preacher may be seen in his pulpit. Then the seeds ripen. As the spathe a round ball of bright red berries appears at the top of the spadix. Some birds eat the leaves and berries and naturally we refuse to steal the food that Mother Nature provides for her wild creatures. Nor can we eat Jack-in-the- pulpit's turnip because it con- tains a very bitter poison. Some say it loses its flavor and its poison when boiled but we don't want to eat that either. In Colonial mothers used the bitter juices as cough medicines but our modern cough medicines taste better and work better. asked by child- ren of HwaM readers should be malted to Ask P.O. Box.

BEETLE BAILEY by mort walker Lawrence Lamb DEAR DR. LAMB I'm begging you to help me with this I just turned 14 and started my periods a little more than a year and a half ago The problem is I can't use tampons. I've tried time after and I follow the directions exactly. The last time I tried when my parents were away and when I tried to insert it I felt dizzy and faint. Sweat broke out on my forehead and my stomach felt suddenly so I removed it quickly. The next thing I knew I was lying on the floor. I had fainted I got hysterical. Don't tell me this is normal and try to relax next time. Does this mean I'll be unable to have children like normal if you tell me what is wrong9 DEAR READER You're describing a simple faint. it is not normal to have this type of problem. That does not mean that your problem is serious or won't be able to have children. You may have a problem with your anatomy. That may be why you are having so much dif- ficulty If it could be fairly simple and probably fairly easily corrected. If it isn't corrected it could lead to problems for you later on in your married life. There is only one good way to solve your problem You will need to be seen and ex- amined by a physician. He can tell very easily if you have a problem that needs correc- ting. You may have a extra firm that all girls but it is much more fragile in most girls.

I would also suggest that you not try to use tampons on your own again without having an examina- tion first. DEAR READER I have included your letter because your problem is so important to you. I have written a book that includes the complete gamut of ques- tions and in between ages have written to me because they need help so desperately with problems they consider embarrassing Unfortunately I can't answer all these questions in the new- spaper because of their nature. for those who have ques- tions about male or young or I'd suggest that they see if the book is in the library. If it can be ordered by your bookstore or you can order it yourself. It will give many of you the needed information on these problems. You can also see that you are not alone in having problems The book is Doctor It's About 720 Fifth New N.Y. price The entire book is of letters anonymous readers have sent to just as you and my comments.
