Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy SHRIMP'S LIFE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Russell age 11. of South for his What tke life cycle of a A shrimp if such there may be invisi- ble to the human eye. The youngsters measure perhaps 100th part of an which is barely large enough to be and at this stage of their larva they are usually transparent. You just might be able to detect the red or black eye dots on their hungry little heads. Shrimps are crustaceans and there are dozens of different species ranging in length from less than one inch to more than 12 inches plus antennas. They come in greys and pinks and greens and blues and several species wear multi- colored stripes. A few are emitting a hazy glow. Most shrimps live in the sea. some live in brackish es- tuaries and a few in fresh water. All shrimps lay eggs and molt through several larva though the life cycle varies somewhat in different Small females lay to eggs at a larger species lay as many as Most species produce two broods during the plus a winter brood of larger eggs that take somewhat longer to hatch. In some the fertilized eggs are left to take their chances in the hungry sea. In the brood of tiny round eggs is attached to 'the female's swimmerets until hatching time. The newly hatched larvae may resemble miniature torpedos or almonds legs and tiny dark eyes. Usually they are rhey feed near the on norsels of floating plankton. During their first three ir four the glaSsy Tiidgets go through perhaps 15 depending upon species. At last they resemble adult shrimps and sink down to take ap a less hazardous life near the bottom. Most species skulk on or in the sand during the day and do their foraging after dark. species reach maturity and old age at the end of their first year. Others mature at the age of one or two and have life ex- pectancies of two to five years. Their life cycles vary quite a but apart from size and a few special adult shrimps are very much alike. The average shrimp is a' a ten-legged crusta- cean built like a miniature lobster. Its head and thorax are united under a single shell. This section is fitted with five pairs of skinny walk- ing two pairs of whiskery a pair of pincer jaws and five pairs of appendages used to handle food. The jointed abdomen section has ten plus two more under the tail. The frisky shrimp can swim forward or tip down his tail to reverse his direction. He usually walks on two pairs of his back tucks two pairs under his body and uses the front pair to feel his way. He hides himself by shoveling a hollow with his walking legs and jets of water from his then using his whiskery antennas to flip sand over his back. All this is done with a noisy cracking of joints.

LAMB -1 have had a duodenal ulcer off and on for approximately 10 years. As of late it has been bother- ing me very and the doctor I have been seeing has put me on a very strict diet. After three weeks there is still no relief. The doctor now says it is up to me to either stay on the diet and hope for it to heal in a year or two or he can operate. He doesn't favor the operation because of my which is and he says there are physiological changes after surgery. Could you give me some in- formation and advice on DEAR READER In my own no one be operated upon for a duodenal ulcer unless they cannot benefit from careful manage- ment within the hospital en- vironment. I would rather see a patient spend several weeks in the hospital with good management than several weeks with surgery and post- operative recovery. If there are such as or then surgery may be needed at once. Otherwise adequate medical management deserves a careful trial. The hospital is the only place you can hope to do this because it is the best way to be sure what the patient is eating and what he is doing about his medicine. It also insures removing him from environmental factors that may seriously affect the way his ulcer is doing. This doesn't mean you can't treat an ulcer without going to the hospital. Of you can in many cases. it does mean that the hospital should be tried before sur- gery. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov. 13 The first scientific studies of meteors began 140 years ago today in 1833 when more than shooting stars were sighted over eastern North America. The brilliant spectacle led many to believe the end of the world had come. IMS Gen. Charles de Gaulle was elected interim president of the French provisional government. 1918 Austrian Republic was proclaimed. About 260 people died in a mine accident at 111. 1897 Ernest the ex- died. 1794 Washington authoriz- ed suppression of the whisky rebellion in Pennsylvania. your doctor is right that some people do have complications after ulcer sur- gery. Others do fairly well with minimal difficulties. I think it is better to correct the factors that lead to an ul- cer when you rather than operating. The ulcer is often an indication that life is not what it should be. High on the list of things you should if you have not done them is to stop smok- ing entirely. Use no coffee in any form eliminate chocolate or any other source of caffeine. All alcohol is strictly out. Then comes your diet and medicines that your doctor has no doubt prescribed'tor ypu. And you should try- to eliminate the things in life that are particularly frustrating to if at all or at least minimize them. DEAR DR. LAMB -1 have become interested in the human anatomy and the reproductive system. I was reading a book on the reproductive system and in one paragraph of a sentence is a word I do not understand. Would you clarify it for The word is impenetrable. I only know the ovum and the spermatozoa. DEAR READER HHHuuummm. It's just a good English word meaning the inability to be penetrated or pierced. I .presume you were reading about the sperm cells penetrating the ovum. This is the process of fer- the essential step in causing pregnancy. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O.
