Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LFIHBRIDCE HERALD Thursday, November 16, 1972 YOUR HOROSCOPE By DIXON FRIDAY, NOV. 17 Your birthday lotlay: You DOW make constructive and lasting adjustments in your lite style.

TAURUS (April 20-May How moles breothe Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of Merit Stud- ents Encyclopedia to Brad Simpson, age 11, of Charlotte, No. Carolina, for his ques- tion: How can a mole brcallie under- ground? Last week we surveyed the groundwater and saw how vital it is to life on the surface. The ground also contains enormous quantities of air and other gas- es. Some of these are vital !o the burrowing moles and also to multitudes of mini-creatures that build and rebuild the soil. All living tilings depend on the plant world, the plants need soil, the soil needs Ixtth water and air to stay in good condi- tion. But even ecologists tend to forget the importance of Ihe j ground air. j I We are told that the atmo- j sphere rests on the surface and its layers extend up for hun- dreds of miles. This over-sim- plified picture ignores all the air that exists in caves and crevices, between the crumbs of sand and soil and in the pores of deeply buried rocks. For a long time, we have pol- luted and abused our soils. To rebuild them we must take a new look at this layer of ground air in the atmosphere's base- ment. It is the naturr of gases to mingle together and to per- meate every available space. At sea level the weight of the lofty atmosphere exerts about 1414 pounds of pressure per square inch. This helps to push Tariff talks get go-ahead GENEVA (Reuter) A go- ahead was given here Tuesday for a further'round of world trade negotiations to open late next year. The BO members of the Gen- eral Agreement on Tariffs and Trade agreed at the end of a two-week session to hold a min- isterial meeting in September to draw up guidelines for the talks. The talks will aim to cut tar- iffs and non-tariff barriers to trade and will embrace both in- dustrial and agricultural prod- ucts. the gaseous air into the soil and through deeper porous rocks. In Ihe dirt there are plenty cf air-filled pockets to supply teeming hordes of large and small creatures that live underground. When you poke a hole in the ground, it fills with air much faster than you can dig Some seeps from surrounding soil, more presses down from above. A worm's tunnel fills with air as he digs his way through the dirt. The same thing happens when moles and badgers, aard- varks and other hurrowers fun- nel through the ground. Host jf them also dig underground dens and bedrooms for themselves. These also fill with air. Upstairs, the atmosphere cir- culates in weathery turmoil. The air underground circulates more slowly from space to space. Some gets mixed with volcanic fumes and non-breath- able gasss from decomposing organic material. Pockets of stale or poisonous air often get trapped in mines and caves. But as a rule, these problems do not bother the moles and other burrowers. Their tunnels have numerous exits that act as two-way air vents. The underground air, stale with carbon dioxide, seeps outside and merges with the atmosphere. Fresh air from above seeps down inside, bring- ing oxygen to the moles and to all the other underground popu- lations. If would be nice to Imow as much about the ground air as we know about the groundwater. But scientists tend to neglect this fascinating realm of sub- surface ecology. They give us estimated figures on the groundwater. But though Andy searched diligently, he was un- able to learn how much useable air is estimated to be under- ground. We need to know lots more about it in order to help the earth to restore her pollu- ted and impoverished soils. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

M. D. Questions surgery for 89-year-old Dear Dr. Lamb My fa- ther has an aortic aneurysm and has had it for about eight YEARS. However, now it is getting bigger and our family doctor suggests an operation with a graft. He is 89 years old and I don't know whether the family should encourage the operation or not. I, being the son with power of attorney to handle all legal matters, seem to be left with the decision. Would you please comment on this for me. He is in pretty good health other than hyper- tension and also he is taking digitalis tablets four times a week. Drar Reader An aneu- rysm of the aorta is caused by a weakness in the wall of the aorta which allows it to balloon out like a weak spot does on an inner tube only usually in these cases the area involved is much larger than that you might see on the inner tube. The real dan- ger of course is that the dilated part of the weakened wall or the aneurysm may blow out or rupture. When it starts getting larger, if it is going to be op- erated on, that is the time it should be done. Many of these that Involve replacing a section of the aorta GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN c BT Tta CMOH Tclbm Neither vulnerable. South deals. NORTH AJM7 OQ31 AKQ3 WEST EAST 43 O3D32 (7Q.T8S OAJ102 OK853 SOUTH AAQ982 <2 AK9 076 J105 The bidding: South West North East 1 A Pass 2 Pass 2 A Pass 3 A Pass 4 A Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Ace of 0 Altho West got off to the killing lead against South's four spade 'contract, he did not follow up his inital ad- vantage, and in Ihe end his efforts went for nothing. Holding four trumps, West chose to launch an assault against declarer's trump holding by playing a forcing Same. He accordingly opened the ace of diamonds and when partner gave him a come-on by playing the eight, West continued with the jack "which was ducked by all bands. A third round was covered by -North's queen, East's Mng and ruffed by South with Wa deuce of spades. The dummy was entered with a club, and the jack of spades was put thru for a finesse. West won the triclc with the king and exited "With a trump. South had just enough spades to draw all of his opponent's trumps. When he was finished, he claimed his contract, announcing that he would discard his small heart on North's fourth, club. West erred in winning his trump trick so quickly. The Initial attack in diamonds had brought declarer down, to his size in spades, and West should have endeav- ored to preserve the initia- tive by exhausting the dum- my of its trumps first. Observe the effect that can be obtained if West ducks not only the first, but also the second spade lead. The best declarer can do mw, is to cash the ace of trumps, leaving the king out- standing, and then begin to run the clubs. West trumps the third round of clubs and returns a diamond, forcing out South's last trump and leaving the latter perma- nently disconnected from the dummy. In the end, South must surrender a heart for the selling trick. Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov. 16. 1972 John Bright, English par- liamentarian, was bom 161 years ago son of a Quaker mill owner. He became a top Liberal or- ator and free-trade advo- cate and he resigned office when the British bombarded Egypt. His main interests were economic and political reform, but one of his dreams was a great North American federation, from Hudson Bay to the Gulf of Mexico, free of military in- terests and "with freedom everywhere, equality every- where, peace every- where." parachute jump from a balloon 14 miles high was made by Capt. Joseph Kittinger of the U.S. Air Force over New Mexico. Soviet Union and India signed a five-year trade agreement. fall offensive of the Allied armies in Europe began. United Slates recognized the Soviet Union as the government of Rus- sia. Lower Canada authorities ordered the ar- rest of Louis Papincau, which resulted In the Re- bellion of 1837. in the abdomen can be done with a limited amount of risk. If the section to be replaced is in Ihe chest, the operation is more difficult and carries a higher risk The synthetic ma- terial that is used for a graft works very well and in fact in time a new lining grows inside of it just like the lining in the ordinary aorta. It is not possible for me lo tell you whether it is wise to oper- ate or not because I don't know that much about the rest of the medical condition of your fa- ther. There is a point, however, when one has very little to gain by waiting, If the likelihood-is that a rupture of the aneursym is going to occur relatively soon and nothing is done, once it ruptures there is only one pos- sible outcome- So, even when there is a reasonably high risk Involved because of the age and health problems, it is still sometimes indicated. This must be balanced against the probability of operative success. Some- times in people your father's age the aorta has undergone so much change that it can't be operated upon successfully. The aorta may be so hard from c a 1 c i f i cation and associated change that it is very brittle. Such an aorta is sometimes called a "glass aorta" and it shatters on attempted incision and it Is impossible to suture successfully. I would suggest that you go along with your family doctor's suggestion, at least to the point of having your father referred to a large medical centre where operations of this nature are done rather frequently. To be certain to get the best team effort, I would suggest that he be referred to a medical car- diologist, not directly to a sur- geon. The medical cardiologist will need to evaluate some of the problems I have mentioned in judging whether your father is a candidate for surgery, but I must urge you to proceed as rapidly as possibTe to obtain a decision because of your com- ment about the aneursym get- ting larger.
