Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1I_THI llTHMUOOi'MllULD-WidnMdiy. NovMllMr Ask Andy EARTH'S SPBUU Andy semis a complete 30- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Kim age of for her How many miles the earth ft- arwad a The Spaceship Earth spins like a top and circles the sun while swirling around a great orbit through the Galaxy. What's our dizzy old spaceship performs these curlycues at different speeds and with slight variations. For it travels around the sun slightly faster in December than in July. And the ground at the equator spins faster than it does at Oregon. Our big round globe spins around its a sort of line straight through the middle from pole to pole. This motion is called rotation and the average length 'of one rotation is 23 56 minutes and 4.098 seconds. During this period of which is a calendar the big ball spins completely around like a top. It rotates altogether as a solid unit because of its spherical some parts must spin around faster than others The axis through the middle stays still while the rest of the earth spins around it. Hence the two poles at the two ends of the axis do not rotate. From these two the earth's surface bulges outward to the wide equator. The distance between the bulging equator and the poles is marked off in smaller and smaller circles of latitude. All these circles make one rotation in about 24 hours and the big ones must spin faster than the smaller ones. If you stand on the the ground beneath your feet spins around at about miles per hour. Here the spinning speed is about 508 yards per second. From the the two hemispheres curve toward the the spinning circles of latitude get smaller and their rotation speed decreases. Latitude 30 degrees runs across southern Texas. There the surface of the earth spins around at about 439 yards per second. Let's travel farther north to Latitude 60 which runs along the southern shore of Alaska. There the surface rotation speed is reduced to about 255 yank per second. Farther the ipeed decreases and at Latitude 90 which It the North it dwindles to nothing. the earth it also revolves along its orbit around the sun. Its average orbital speed is per hour which is r.u'les per minute or 18 tt miles per second. This speed is the same at the at the at Oregon and everywhere else on earth. While the Spaceship Earth spins on its axis and orbits the it also travels with the Solar System on an enormous tour through the starry galax- y. The speed of this grand tour is miles per hour which is almost 12 miles per second. At this it takes 200 million years to complete one enormous orbit through the Galaxy. by child- rwi of Herald rcadcra malted to P.O. Box. Huntmgton California Chronicle Publishing Co.

They seldom mention that a 4-3 fit can be more than Hwueh the play might need some care. Today's hand could prove awkward for those who are compelled to open one dia- mond and then have to for a rebid over part- ner's two club response. They might reach a five chib contract that can be defeated with good defense. Natural ended hi the excellent four heart con- tract that needed only a modi- of care to be brougJit home. Note that South had no qualms about contracting for game even tbo he knew that his partner was unlike- ly to bold more than three hearts for his delayed jump raise. The first two tricks were won by the king and jack of and West continued with the ace of spades. De- clarer's natural instinct was to but he realized that this might not be the win- ning play. To ruff would mean shortening his trump holding to three cards. Since the combined heart suit in declarer's hand and dummy was only seven that 1 meant that the defenders had a total of six trumps. Six missing cards are likely to divide 4-2 most of the so if declarer ruffed the third the defenders would then have control of the hand because one of them held a long trump. there was no need for declarer to for he had a simple ploy to counter the defenders' forc- ing game. Instead of ruffing the third declarer discarded a diamond. This left the defenders without resource. If West continued declarer would ruff high in dummy while discarding from his A shift would also be to no for declarer draw all the out- standing trumps and come to 10 tricks via four trump the ace of diamonds and five chita.

The Chicago Tribune Lawrence Lamb M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB My doctor says I have triglycendes in my blood. I never heard of it before. What is the difference between triglycerides .and I try to keep my weight down and not use too much fats. Please tell me what to do. My old doctor would have ed and told me but he and I had to get another -doctor. He tell me anything. I'm not afraid to know what is wrong. DEAR READER Triglycendes is a scientific name for fats Most of the fat in our and that we is in this form. What your doc- tor is telling you is that you have too much fat in your blood. Cholesterol is not actually a although it is a waxy material. It is formed by the liver The liver can make it from too many calories of any including carbohydrates and even protiens. Whenever you eat more calories than your body there is a probability that your liver will form excess amounts of cholesterol. You can also get more cholesterol from the food you eat. Egg yolks'and organ meats are the most common foods that contain lots of cholesterol. The cholesterol with the fat forms small particles that can be deposited in the wall of arteries causing which leads .to heart and other problems. Some people require special care to help control their blood fats and cholesterol. The can do much better by decreasing' their body fat. This means decreasing the number of calories eaten and increasing physical activity. You are wise to limit the fat in your diet. You might make a point to include more poultry and fish in your diet and less mammal meat if you to use lots of it. You can also use low fat dairy such as fortified skim milk and uncreamed cot- tage cheese. Prepare your foods .using corn oil or safflower oil at home. Limit the fatty salad dressings and the high calorie desserts. And a word about your new doctor. He would probably en- joy talking to you more. Most doctors actually did go into medicine because they enjoy doing things for people. The problem often is that they simply can't. The modern medical system has forced each doctor to see a lot of patients just to keep the office open. I sometimes think doc- tors have to see too many patients a busy doctor with lots of responsibility can't take the time to explain all about foods and living patterns. If he he wouldn't be able to see all of the patients that need to see him. This is too bad because some of these aspects of health care are very impor- tant factors in how people get along with their problems. This is why I think we must try to do more to help people help themselves. Increasing a doctor's responsibility to see more and more even with the aid of new office and new expen- sive equipment is not going to make it any easier for him to have the time to explain a lot or spend much time with each of his patients.
