Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Monday, Octobtr Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Reader It depends entirely upon how much obstruction you have. You can't always tell that by just doing a manual examination. The prostate can enlarge outward and not significantly compress the urethral drainage from the bladder. It can also enlarge toward the centre, like filling the hole in a donut, compressing the urethra without feeling very large. Your symptoms are some indication of how much obstruction you have. When obstruction becomes marked there may be a markedly distended bladder. This may cause frequent urination without completely emptying the bladder. You may also have other problems, in starting your stream and stopping it. The stream may be small in caliber. Your symptoms don't sound like you are having much trouble yet. When it is desirable to know for sure how much obstruction a man has, it is necessary to have him empty his bladder as completely as he can. Then a catheter (hollow tube) is passed through the urethrea into the bladder and if there is still a lot of urine present it can be drained out and the amount measured It is sometimes surprising how much is there. A wash basin full is not uncommon in severe problems. A simple X ray of the, abdomen after urination may also show a distended bladder. When dye studies of the kidneys are done, the dye collects in the bladder and makes it more obvious. Certainly you shouldn't have surgery done unless it can be shown by one of the above methods that you really do have a lot of urine in the bladder that is not being eliminated. Meanwhile I think you should have at least a yearly checkup which would include a manual examination of your prostate gland. Send your questions to Or. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.

I Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Oct. 7, 1974 An American revolutionary force under George Washington was routed at Chadds Ford, Pa., 197 years ago in 1777 by the 1st American Regiment, now the Queen's York Regiment, one of Canada's oldest military units. The regiment was organized before the revolu- tion by Robert Rogers fam- ed for his Rogers' Rangers but later was moved to Toronto by Lt.-Col. John Graves Simcoe, first lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN O WMr TM vulnerable, as South you hold: 9AKQ943 The bidding has proceeded: South West North East 19 2NT Pass 34 Pass 3 NT Pass 9 What do you bid now? spades. North quite likely has the king of spades on this auction, so slam chances are bright unless you have two quick diamond losers. Your bid over game gets this message across, and at the same time tells part- ner that you have at least six hearts and five spades, and that you want to play in six of his bet ter major if he controls the enemy suit vulnerable, as South you hold: AKQ52 983 4Q1098 The bidding has proceeded: South West North East 1 Dble. Rdble. 2 What do you bid now? This seems almost too good to be true. It would appear that West was in an ex- perimental frame of mind when he entered the auction, and no thought should be given to such a petty matter as reaching game unless, of course, partner re- moves your double to two spades Here, the penalty's the thing vulnerable, as South you hold: 9A102 4KQ107 The bidding has proceeded: South West North East 1 1 2V Pass 9 What do you bid now? A.-Three clubs. While you have adequate support for hearts, you should delay raising partner to complete the description of your hand. When you raise hearts at your next turn, your singleton spade will become marked and partner can decide whether to make a move toward slam vulnerable, as South you hold: 9 A109872 4107 4KJ82 The bidding has proceeded: North East Sooth West Pass IV Pass 1 Pass 2 9 Pass 2 Pass What do you bid now? has described a hand with sax diamonds and five spades, and on that basis a pre- ference to diamonds is indicated. However. South can give himself aa extra chance by bidding three clubs. He knows that North has only two cards in clubs and hearts. If they are 1-1 or if North has no hearts and two clubs, he will return to three diamonds and South can pass. However, if North holds two hearts and no clubs, he should give preference to hearts, in which case four hearts should be a reasonable gamble. Q.5-East-West vulnerable, as South you hold: 9QJ854 4643 The bidding has proceeded: North East South West 14 Pass 1 9 Pass 1 Pass What do you bid now? Game must be out of the question, and another bid from you might spur partner to perilous heights. Even the most tolerant partner will expect more than a queen, two jacks and a singleton if you take another bid vulnerable, as South you hold: 9KQ1054 4852 The bidding has proceeded: North East South West 1 Pass 2 9 Pass 4 Pass 4 Pass 6f Pass What do you bid now? hearts. North has shown a monster distributional hand in the major suits. He was prepared to play a slam on the strength of your two-level response and diamond ace. know- ing nothing of your king of spades. That card must solidify his hand, and 13 tricks should be a laydown. vulnerable, as South you hold: A7 9943 4K1062 The bidding has proceeded: North East South 3 NT Pass What action do you take? arithmetic dictates a raise to six no trump. Partner has promised 25-27 points and a balanced hand, and you have 9. which places you securely in the small slam range, but short of a grand slam. vulnerable, as South you hold: 9K652 AK 4K1092 The bidding has proceeded: North East South West 1 Pass 1 9 Pass 1 Pass What do you bid now? question is the best way to probe for a grand slam, for a small slam seems a safe under- taking. Blackwood wall not get you sufficient information, so we suggest yon first set the trump suit by jumping to three dubs. Subsequent action will depend on partner's next bid.

Ask Andy RAIN Andy sends a complete 20 volume' set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Angella Alsobrooks, age 11, of Matthews, North Carolina, for her question: Exactly how is rain made? Obviously, the main ingredient is plain water, which comes splashing down from the clouds in small, large or medium size drops. The mystery lies hi how all this water, gets up in the air, especially when we learn that even a mini rain cloud weighs 100 tons. Rainmaking is an enormous, complicated pro- ject. It involves the beaming sun, the filmy atmosphere and the solid earth, with its vast expanses of land and sea. If our scientists knew this secret down to the last detail they could perform wonders. They could coax the clouds to shed showers on the thirsty deserts, end dreadful droughts and maybe tame deluging floods At present they know more or less how raindrops are created in the weathery atmosphere. But they do not know enough to control nature's rainmaking on a global basis. Weather scientists are meteorologists, and they refer to the rain as a-form of precipitation a word which means something that com- es tumbling down. Other forms of precipitation are snow, sleet and hail. In the tricky formation of raindrops, one or all of these other forms of precipitation may play a part For example, a raindrop that finally splashes on the ground may have started as an ice crystal or spent a brief spell as a feathery snowflake. In general, all types of precipitation are formed from gaseous water vapor, which the sun evaporated from the moist surface of the earth. Every hour, countless tons of this invisible vapor rise to several miles above the ground. Chilled by the cooler air aloft, the gaseous vapor becomes liquid droplets of misty cloud moisture. This is the material used to make rain and all other forms of precipitation. The droplets in a misty cloud are too small to be seen one by one, and each is sur- rounded by plenty of space. Thousands of these moist midgets must merge to form one raindrop and the problem is how to get them together Meteorologists now know that a successful rain cloud must contain tiny solid particles called nuclei. A nucleus may be a fine frag- ment of salt drawn up from the sea, a speck of dust or a tiny ice crystal formed in the chilly air aloft. From the ground, the average cloud looks like a peaceful mountain of mist, calm and serene. Actually, it is a billowing mass where breezes blow up and down and in all directions. As the nuclei are whisked around, they bash into the cloud droplets and gather films and more films of liquid water. Soon the grow- ing drops get too big and too heavy to float aloft in the air and down dashes the rain. Usually, a growing raindrop starts on high and falls several miles through the breezy cloud. On the way it is whirled through warmer and cooler pockets, damper and drier pockets. Sometimes it< first forms a snowflake or an ice pellet and melts to form a raindrop in a low layer of warm air just above the ground. by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
