Ryan I'M PLANNING A GALA PARTY FOR TOMORROW AFTERNOON AT MY HOUSE, HONi YOU'VE JUSTfiOT TO-.COME! Dear Dr. Lamb Would you explain a radio thyroid isotope scan study? Is a subslernal thyroid cancerous? What would cause a subslernal thyroid? If it is not creating any symp- toms wouldn't it be better to leave well enough alone? Dear Reader The thyroid scan uses radioactive iodine and takes advantage of the (hyroid gland's function in us- ing iodine. The radioactive io- dine will be concentrated in the thyroid gland area and by us- ing a counter technique, which identifies where the radioactive iodine is, a map of the size of the thyroid gland can be made. It is a miniaturized version of using a counter to find a urani- um mine. If a portion of the thyroid gland is trapped under the sternum (breast bone) its location there can be identified. If there are nodules of ac- tive tissue in the thyroid gland which may be cancerous, these will pick up additional amounts of the radio active materials and represent hot spots or high density areas on the thyroid scan. A substemal thyroid is mere- ly one which is enlarged and a portion of it is trapped under- neath the sternum. In other cases of thyroid enlargement all of the thyroid gland is in the neck, none of it is under the sternum, and its size can all be determined by physical examination usually without the necessity of using a thyroid scan. A substernal thyroid is not necessarily cancerous. In fact, it usually is not. It just defines where the enlargement of the thyroid gland is located. Sometimes substernal thyroid glands, if they are large enough, will cause pressure against adjacent structures and will therefore need to be re- moved. Otherwise, ordinary en- largement of the thyroid gland in Ihe neck region merely in- creases the size of the neck without creating pressure on underlying structures. Dear Dr. Lamb doctor says I have spasms of the stomach but he doesn't know what causes it. I have great pains in my stomach like cramps. I also have a bad heart. I have a pacemaker this year makes my fourth year willi it. It was exchanged in February of this year. It is do- ing okay but my stomach is not. I am 76. I would like you to give me some advice if you can. Dear Reader To have some idea of what is causing your problem, one would need to have x-rays of your stomach and possibly even your gall- bladder and lower digestive tracl. If Ihese are all normal there is a possibility that the pains you are experiencing in the area of your stomach are from your heart. Some people have heart pain referred to the upper abdomen. If this should be the case your doctor could try nitroglycerine tablets under the tongue and see if it relieves your abdomin- al pain. The body plays strange tricks on us. The pain is not always where the difficulty is. That is why a person with gallbaldder difficulty will sometimes have referred pain to the shoulder and a person with a heart at- tack may have pain in the arm instead of the chest. So, you can have trouble with the blood supply to your heart muscle and it may cause pain in the abdomen instead of the chest. GOREN ON BRIDGE BV CHARLES H.

West opened the jack of hearts which held Ihe first trick when declarer played low from the dummy anil East signalled encourage- ment with the nine. West continued wilh Ihe ten which was duckel again and South ruffed with the fivo of spades. South began drawing trump, however, when East showed out on the second round, it became necessary for the declarer, to use up every one of his spades U exhaust West. Dummy was entered will the king of clubs to try th< diamond finesse. When the ten of diamonds lost lo the king, West returned a heart thru dummy's queen, and since all the trumps were gone, Bast was able to cash enough lieart tricks- to set declarer on the deaL South surrendered control of the Iiand when he ruffed the second heart. He should have taken steps to protect himself against a four-one division in trumps by at- tempting to sever his oppo- nents' line of communica- If one of the defenders does hold four spades, may have less hearts than his partner. Observe the effect, if the declarer permits West to hold the second heart trick, discarding the eight of clubs from his hand. If West con- tinues with the eight of hearts, South ruffs and pro- ceeds to draw all the trump. Now when he crosses over to the king of clubs to take the diamond finesse, West is out of hearts and is unable to put his partner in. South wins the return and has the rest of the tricks. In. all, he loses two hearts and one diamond. Since South has to lose a club Irick in any case, it can hardly cost to. give il up ear- ly, in order to better hi] odds. Life story of eels Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Jeff Somerfleld, age 12, of Cones- toga, Pennsylvania, for his question: What exactly is an eel? This slipperiest of slippery creatures is a fish who looks like a snake. At least he does when he reaches the adult stage of life. This is when we find him slithering around mud- dy ponds and freshwater streams. Actually, this par- ticular eel is a female, for only she makes the daring journey from Uie sea, traveling perhaps halfway across the continent. The males congregate near the shore, often where wide rivers join Uie sea. The eel you catch in a creek looks for all the world like a large water snake. However, she has fishy gills to absorb dissolved oxygen, fishy fins and small fishy scales embodied in her slippery-slithery skin. Her fins have no spines like those of most fishes and on dry land they may not be noticeable. In the water, they look like pieces of soft grey chiffon. A she swims, she waves a pair of small fins, placed near the gill slils on Ihe sides of her head. She also waves a long caudal fin that grows from her lower spine, around the tip of her tail and under her body. By wriggling her supple spine and waving her filmy fins, she can travel far and fast. She also manages to travel over land from one pond or stream to the next one. She makes this bold journey at night and sur- vives on oxygen from the dewy grass or by absorbing it from the air, directly through her moist skin. These fresh water eels are re- lated to the whopping conger eel and also to Uie bad-temp- ered moray eel that intimidates small creatures off the coral reefs. But they are not related to the shocking electric eel lurking in murky rivers of t IAMNOT60NNA MARRY BLONDIE-By Chic Young Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov. 23, 1972 Advanced elements o! the French Armored Division entered Strasbourg 28 years ago the Second World War. Strasbourg was first taken by France in 1681 under Louis XIV but was surren- dered to the Germans in 1870. After the First World Wav, it passed with Alsace- Lorraine to France but was lost to Germany again on the French collapse in 1940.

South America. All our fresh- water eels are more or less grown and for a long time no- body knew how, when or where the youngsters originated. It took several decades to solve their secret life story and the facts are more amazing than fiction. After several years, when the fresh water females reach a length of from three to six feet, they mig.vte back to the sea often from hun- dreds of miles inland. Near the mouths of rivers nnd in salty lagoons, they rendezvous wilh groups of males. This is where Ihe males stayed when the fe- males went ashore. Together, the males and fe- j males voyage lo their breeding grounds near the Bermuda Is- lands. There they rendezvous with other groups of adult eels that have voyage! across the Atlantic from western Europe and Africa. In a short time, they lay their eggs and then die. The hatchlings look for all the world like orc'inrary young fishes. They soon leave their fabulous breeding ground and begin the long journey back home, with no adults to guide them. t It takes the youlhlul eels a year or more to reach the snores from which their par- ents migrated. Meantime, ihey grow to look more like eels am less like ordinary fishes. They arrive along the shallow snores in countless numbers, where many are devoured by sea birds. The surviving males and females segregate themselves and the females make their way into fresh inland waters. The males wait near the shore for the next migration back to the mid-Atlantic.
