Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE HERALD-Thursday, Octobtr Ask Andy Lawrence Lamb M.D. by ehirtN uhJlz. NASA Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Amanda Tally, age 12, of Winston-Salem, No. Carolina, for her question: When did NASA get started? Lunar landings, weather satellites, space probes to other planets, super-surveys of the earth, new systems of communications, a non- polluting auto engine plus dozens of everyday inventions these are just some of NASA's accomplishments. If you had to guess, you might say that it took 10.000 years to introduce the world to all these wonders Not at all. NASA is only 15 years old. The Spaceage Success Story began with the first man- made satellite, in 1957. This proved that it is possible to es- cape Earth's gravity and ex- plore the vast regions beyond. Everybody was eager to go- go-go and no time was wasted in setting up a workable system to usher in the new era. In 1958, the year after the first satellite, the U.S. Congress established a well- organized federal and civilian agency for the purpose of peaceful research and development in space flight The stupendous undertaking was called the National Aeronautics and Space Ad- ministration NASA. Almost at once it became a busy hive with thousands of topknotch scientists and researchers, engineers and technicians. Some of the teams worked in universities, some in civilian industries and some in a dozen or so major NASA centers set up in various states to cope with special aspects of the enormous project. For ex- ample, as we all know, moon missions are launched from the NASA Space Center at Cape Kennedy and NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center is at Houston. Recorded history began when mankind invented writing and all of it is crowded into about years. Without a doubt, history's most impor- tant scientific event is the conquest of space that began less than 20 years ago. The organization of NASA made it possible for this stupendous adventure to progress with speed and accuracy. Certain experts suggest why this is so, and also why the beneficial by-products have been so much greater than anybody expected. The problem of coping with space travel is, naturally, out of this world. Systems that work on earth had to be forgotten and new ones devis- ed to work in space. Researchers had to come up with new substances and materials, new instruments of all kinds. And many of these spaceage items proved superior to plastics, gadgets and dozens of everyday ob- jects we had been using on earth. We have the benefit of these spaceage im- provements. Another surprising reward sprang from NASA's basic organization. Never before had so many teams of top scientists been able to put Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Oct. 18, 1973 The first photographs of the far side of the moon were shown by the Soviet satellite Lunikk HI 14 years ago today in 1959. They had been shot several days earlier when the satellite passed behind the moon but were not tran- smitted until the craft began its journey back to earth. 1963 Sir Alec Douglas- Home succeeded Harold MacMillan as British prime minister. 1917 German forces won the four-day battle of Mahiwa, Africa. 1898 Gen. John Brooke took possession of Puerto Rico for the United States.

Among other wonders, it made possible the first lunar landings, which happen- ed when NASA was only 11 years old. asked by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

LAMB In just four days we recently lost a dear member of our family to an illness diagonosed as pan- creatitis. I need to know what causes this sudden disease, its symptoms, proper treatment and whether or not it is usual- ly fatal. DEAR READER At the outset let me say that there is a difference between acute sudden pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis. The out- look in the chronic form is somewhat different although it can become poor if underlying problems are not corrected, such as a gall stone blocking the duct from the' pancrease or failure to cor-' rect an underlying alcohol- problem Acute pancreatitis is sudden inflammation of the pan- crease, the organ lying un- derneath and behind the stomach at the upper left part of the abdomen. The picture varies a great deal. In general there is obstruction of the drinage of normally produced pancreatic juice into the small intestine. These juices tend to break out of the nor- mal drainage ducts within the gland and chemically inflame or even digest the pancreatic tissue. This in turn leads to more damage and the process can accelerate rapidly. The pancreatic juice con- tains powerful enzymes used to digest both proteins and fat. They are capable of causing Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN e 1973, The Chicago TnBuM East-West vulnerable. Vortn deals.

It is well to bear in mina always that the players to your left and right are ne- farious characters whose aim it is to defeat you, using all means at their within the scope of the Laws of Contract Bridge, of course. After South had responded one spade to his one dia- mond opening bid, North was faced with a rebid prob- lem He did not want to jump raise his partner with only three trumps, and he feared that to jump rebid his diamonds might result in a spade game being lost. His solution was to "reverse" in his three-card heart suit, showing a strong hand and, normally, a four-card suit, in the hope that South would bid again. When South rebid his spades. North's hand re- valued to enough to jump direct to game. Instead of leading the usu- al fourth best heart, West resorted to deceptive tactics and selected the deuce of hearts. Declarer saw no harm in letting this run to his jack. However, East won the king, and shifted to a low club. West won and played another heart, East ruffing. The defenders still had the ace of trumps to come, and that meant down one. Declarer's error was that he was lulled into a false sense of security by West's lead. Had he counted his los- ers before playing to the first trick, he would have realized that he could afford to lose a trick in each suit except for diamonds, and still make his contract. Thus, while there was no ap- parent danger in taking the heart finesse, it was a slight additional risk that was not warranted by the reward of a paltry 30 points for the overtrick. The correct play at trick one was the ace of hearts. East could win the first spade trick and get to his partner's hand with a club to score a heart ruff, but that would be the defenders' third and last trick. severe inflammation of the pancreatic tissues. If swelling of the tissues is all that oc- curs, the patient may do fairly well and recover. The usual picture is one of shock and it can be very severe. Some of the proteins that are released into the bloodstream tend to dilate the small arteries throughout the body and blood pressure falls. Treatment is directed toward relieving the shock when that is the main feature. Sometimes there is an associated diabetic complica- tion if the islets of tissues within the pancreas that produce insulin are also severely damaged. There is usually abdominal pain, and it can be in the pit of the stomach and radiate to the back. Other patients may not have such severe pain. The pain can resemble many other conditions that can occur in the abdomen, including a rup- tured peptic ulcer. If the damage and inflam- mation of the pancreas is severe and if it is associated with bleeding into the pan- creas, which can and does oc- cur, then only about half of the patients survive the acute at- tack under the best management Surgery is usually not attempted during the acute at- tack unless it is obvious that medical treatment is not go- ing to prevent the patic-nt's demise. It can be harmful. It is a very serious medical problem and the outlook isn't too encouraging There are many causes of it. Underlying gall bladder dis- ease resulting in a stone in the bile duct may block the pan- creatic duct and is a common cause. Alcohol is another fre- quent cause and there may not be any cause that can be iden- tified. Rare causes include infections such as mumps which can involve the pan- creas much as it involves the glands in the neck and jaw region. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

OCT. 19 Your birthday today: From a mixed beginning, and after several experimental thrusts, this turns out to be a year of strong affirmation in your life. Past achievements are updated and consolidated in the final months. Relationships dwindle then redevelop in a sort of spiral escalation with, finally, very satisfying results. Today's natives have a strong affinity for children, the interests of the underdog, and are sen- sitive, benevolent people.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March An experiment arises spontaneously. Take a per- sonal interest in your team's work. In the final hours of this complex work week, there is a lesson to be learned.
