Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 Herald Novambar Ask Andy WALKING Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit ...Students Encyclopedia to John age of In- for his Is there tuck a thing M a .walking This sounds like a wondrous dream from Alice In a fabulous book that mentions a crocodile who weeps tears of phony sym- pathy and a talkative cat who disappears by allowing his smile to linger until last. Alice did not meet any walk- ing but in the real world such things do indeed exist. The earth's species of fish have gills to extract dis- oxygen from the water and naturally the vast-assort- ment of land animals have 'i'lungs to extract their needed r oxygen from the air. As a creatures with lungs are limited to living on the dry land and those with gills are supposed to stay un- der water. But nothing in the world of nature is downright or so it seems. Even the most hard and fast rules are broken sometimes. For an adult frog air-breathing lungs. But can squat for hours under water on the bottom of his I pond because he absorbs oxygen through his amazing -amphibian skin. And a few of the fishes have ways to sur- out of water for long of time. Obviously a 1 fish must be able to do this if he plans to do any successful on the dry or fairly land. One of the most inventive groups is the catfish clan of more than species. All of them wear fleshy whiskers called barbels on their which serve as feelers. Some wear scales and some do some live in fresh water and some prefer the sea. They -range in size from one inch to -a ten foot giant that weighs 400 pounds. There are ar- mored upside-down catfishes and electric cat- 'fishes. There is a so-called talking catfish so nobody should be surprised to learn of a walking catfish. The walking catfish is a native of India and other parts of Asia where the rainfall is undependable. Through half the the seasonal mon- soon winds drench the ponds and streams. Then the winds -reverse and the dry monsoon season takes its toll of .'moisture from the land. This is when the walking catfish does his walking. It so happens in addi- to his this remarkable fish has special organs that serve as lungs. The average -walking catfish has a wide head and a round two -small sturdy fins on his shoulders and a long tapering r body. When his stream begins Jo dry he comes on land to a source of deeper water. He progresses by using his fins as supporting _legs and pushes forward by humping and straightening his body. Your horoscope fry cfcwlM scftati Some years these Asian walking catfish were im- ported and careless people allowed them to escape into Florida's inland waters. They multiplied at a great rate and ferociously attacked the more desirable native fishes. This unwelcome catfish can leave the water and keep walking for twelve most likely in search of less crowded streams in which to multiply.

For the last four years I have had several attacks of pancreatitis. After the first hospitalization the doctor asked me if I drank alcohol. I truthfully told him 1 am a non-drinker.

Will you please comment in your column on the causes of this disease as I must soon see a physician and I am wondering about continuing with this one if he does not believe me. Dear Reader Com- I believe faulty communications are the cause of over half the world's problems. Your doctor does not disbelieve you. You have been misinformed and he doesn't know it. Thers are a lot of different causes for inflammation of the pancreas. It can occur as a complication of a virus infec- tion such as mumps. it can and often does occur in in- dividuals who use lots of alcohol. In a large number of cases the cause is never known. It simply recurs at intervals even though the person drinks no and apparently doesn't have any other infectious disease or problem. The term chronic relapsing pancreatitis used by your doc- tor IS NOT the same as alcoholic pancreatitis. All the many people who have never touched a drink in their life and who have this problem have the same diagnosis. The confusion comes from the point that one of several but not the only of this problem is alcohol. Your doctor was absolutely correct in using this term on your insurance papers. It means or long term as opposed to short recurring inflammation of the exactly what you describe having had for several years. It means nothing more and in no way in- dicates the cause of the problem. you have done your doc- tor an injustice. No doubt youi have had an acquaintance who knows someone who had this diagnosis who also drank alcohol. The moral of the story is to listen to your doctor when it comes to your medical problems. You have a tough problem to manage and he will need your full co- operation to do the best he can for you. I hope you get along better. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O.

The Chicago Tribune Doctor figures loaded EDMONTON Federal government which show Alberta doctors as the highest paid in are says Dr. Robert executive direc- tor of the Alberta Medical Association. Dr. Clark was commenting on a statistical report releas- ed earlier by the federal health department. It said Alberta with a gross income averaging in were the highest paid doctors in Canada between 1961 and 1971. The report also said that Edmonton with net earnings- of or more averaged in gross ear- nings in 1971 for the highest of any and Calgary stood se- cond highest with average earnings of almost an- nually below Edmonton. FIGURES OUTDATED Dr. Clark said the federal figures are outdated and fail to show falling incomes among Alberta physicians since 1971. He also said the statistics were unfair because they excluded all physicians earning less than a year. Dr. Clark said 1971 was a peak income year for Alberta physicians. Since then more doctors have graduate and the average payment to physici- ans in the province fell 6-2 per cent annually. picture isn't as rosy as it Dr. Clark said.. The average physician has about 35 per cent overhead which reduces his net income to about out of which he must pay retirement holiday benefits and all other fringe benefits. Edmonton doctors lead those in the rest of because of the highly sophisticated medical school and the University of Alberta and because Edmonton operates as a referral centre for northern areas oc- all of Western Dr. Clark said. The federal survey also showed that Alberta pathologists earned on ah average a year more than pathologists across Canada in 1971.
