Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHMIDQE HERALD November Ask Andy THE OPOSSUM Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Bruce age of for her Does u opossum sleep aaag- jsjg Mttde You don't often see a 'possum dangling by his tail from a bough. But chances are you can find a photograph of this remarkable sight in a nature book at the library. Notice that his bright round eyes are open. Obviously he is wide awake. .He would never think of taking a nap in this upside down position. The opossum takes his long nap during the daytime like most wild he takes care to hide himself while he sleeps. For one his woodsy world is patrolled by bobcats and hawks and a long list of other hungry fellows who enjoy opossum meat for dinner. His hideaway may be a deserted burrow or a hollow tree. An opposum nam- ed Gerald rents a small cavelet under a waterfall in Andy's backyard. An opossum's little den is lined with a comfortable layer of crisp grasses and dry leaves. Naturally a mother opossum shares it with her brood of growing youngsters. But the adults prefer to live alone and usually a den is oc- cupied by one male or one female. There he or she spends the curled up and fast asleep. In the late the opossum comes forth into a shadowy world. He pokes out his nose' to test for whiffs of known enemies and perhaps a few sniffs of suitable food. Soon his bright eyes are used to the darkness and he ven- tures a few careful steps from his door. If the world seems he begins his nightly prowl for assorted meats and vegetables. The opossum is a great tree climber. Sometimes he scrambles up in the branches to escape dogs and other blood-thirsty opossum enemies. Sometimes he climbs up to gather berries and other fruit for desert especially persimmons. And sometimes he hangs onto a bough with his tail and lets go. His head.and fat furry body dangle upside while he watches what goes on in the shadowy night-time world. The opossum has a hairless tail that can wind around objects and hold on. It is called a or tail. the tail of an older opossum tends to lose some of its grip. if you see an opossum dangling upside down among the shadowy you can be fairly sure that he is a young fellow. And he will not go to sleep in this remarkable position. The mother opossum gives birth to a dozen or more helpless little babes. For about ten weeks they are fed from milk faucets in her pouch. Then they come out and cling to her fur while she goes forth on her nightly rounds. Life for the opossums is very risky and some of the broods are sure to be lost. At about 14 the survivors go off to find dens for themselves and the lucky ones can expect to live about two years. askediby child- ran of Herald should be mailed to Ask P.O. Bex.

LAMB -1 am a man past 80 years of age. We just celebrated our 59th wedding anniversary. We even have five great- grandsons. I can shave with a straight razor. My hands are steady. Now the problems. The past six months I have been troubled with dizziness. When I change from the ver- tical to especially when I lie down on my right the room turns around with me it seems. The doctor prescribed Antivert but they did not help. My second problem is forgetfulness. If I go in the next room for I can't remember what I went for. It is very embarrassing to forget names that I knew for years. Do you think this is due to the drying up of the capillaries leading to the 1 have angina but I always carry my nitroglycerin tablets with which give me immediate relief. Please write about my two problems. It may help others as well. DEAR READER You are to be congratulated on such a full and obviously rewarding life. you seem to do very well in expressing your problem.' I'm afraid that all of your problems are related to the same thing. The changes in your arteries are probably causing your memory problems and your angina. People often forget Flashback The first of the two Northwest Rebellions by the Metis under Louis Kiel broke out 104 years ago today in 1869. The boatmen and carters of the Red River in what was then known as Rupert's were alarmed at the possibility of a rush of Canadian immigrants into the area when Hudson's Bay Co. handed over- jur- isdiction to the government of Canada. The subsequent rising brought about the creation of Manitoba. IMl The world's first atomic power-generating plant was opened in England. Lieut. Philip Mount- batten was made the Duke of the day before his wedding to Princess who later became Queen Elizabeth n. IMl The British offensive in Libya began during the Se- cond World War. 1SS3 The inventor Sir William Siemens died. 14W- Columbus discovered Puerto Rico. that the disease that causes heart attacks and angina is really a disease of the arteries. It can affect any artery in the body. That is ex- actly why heart transplants and artificial hearts will never be satisfactory for treating the majority of heart disease problems. What we in most is a way to cure or prevent the disease in the all over the body. Your dizziness is most likely due to the fatty deposits in the arteries that supply blood to the balance mechanism in the ear. your doctor was right to give you Antivert. You should go back to as he may want to change the amount or type of medicine. You should do your best to cut down on the fat in your food. It does help if a person is eating too much par- ticularly too much saturated fat. In doing don't neglect to get your and minerals. Since you stated in the rest of your letter that you read my you probably know my views on diet to pre- vent heart and vascular dis- ease. Use fortified skim lean fish and poultry. Use equal amounts of poultry and mammal meat. Avoid fats in cooking and use plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. If you should be try to eliminate gradually the excess pounds. If you don't get much exer- start a daily walking program. Even when people have memory problems in later there is some evidence that memory training techni- ques will help some. I'd suggest that you look in your local bookstore for some or- dinary books on memory training and try some of their suggested techniques. You can train the at least within limits. It might even be fun to try it. Scad yoar qiettioas to Dr. ia care of this new- P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y.
