Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 0 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Monday, October 21, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band and I have an argument concerning calories. He claims one can eat even 500 calories in fat, butter, or sweet cream, and not get fat sick maybe, but not fat. I disagree very much. He is five feet six, weighs 210 pounds and is 67. He is try- ing to lose weight and says it doesn't matter what one eats as long as he doesn't overeat his calories a day. I dis- agree again. Some days he doesn't eat at all, drinks coffee all day, to cut his appetite he says. I think this is wrong also. It's bad for your nervous system. He's very irritable when he drinks all that coffee. Who is right? Dear Reader I don't think he is going to lose much weight on calories regardless of what kind of food it is, unless as you say, it makes him sick. He will probably need to cut down well below that level unless he is far more active physically than I would guess him to be. The important thing in los- ing weight is how many calories you eat (whether it is fat, carbohydrate or and how many calories your body uses. A calorie is a calorie whether it comes from protein food or carbohydrate. Think of it like your checking account. The balance, what you weigh, is always the ac- cumulative result of what you have eaten and absorbed into your body against the amount you have used. Those crash days on a diet are not a good approach. The goal of a diet is to lose excess fat safely and keep it off. Your Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.

In view of your opening one club bid and subsequent jump raise of his suit, partner might suspect that you have an unbalanced hand.

After all. he might be forcing you to bid at the three-level with a bust. You actually have some useful values, and a bid of three hearts does not do them justice.

The opponents may be talking you out of a contract, but there is no sound action you can take. You need a fat wallet to overcall on a four-card suit in this situation, and a takeout double would surely elicit a spade response from partner. Q4.-As South, vulnerable, you hold: VAK83 4Q10965 The bidding has proceeded: South West North East 14 Pass What do you bid now? hearts. The most flexible call at this point. Part- ner might have four hearts, in which case" hearts should be the best spot. Should partner re- turn to spades, you have ade- quate support. And should he have a strong band and be in- terested in slam, you have suffi- cient values to cooperate. in. South, dealer and vulnerable, you hold: VQ8 A1076 4AQ What action do you take? While this hand counts to 13 points and has a five-card spade suit, and is. therefore, an optional opening bid, .there are flaws in the form of an insuffi- ciently guarded heart queen, a doubleton ace-queen of clubs and a spade suit no one could call ro- bust. Also you will have no con- venient rebid should you open one spade and partner responds two hearts. vulnerable, as South you hold: VK2 4KQJ643 4KQJ4 Your partner opens the bid- ding with one no trump. What is your response? clubs. The Gerber Con- vention, asking partner to show his aces in steps- Should partner hold all four aces, you can bid seven no trump with a reason- .able degree of certainty, while if he shows only three, you can take a shot at six diamonds. If partner has fewer aces, sigh off at four no trump. Note that a bid of four no trump would not be ace-asking, but is a quantitive raise in no trump asking partner to bid a small slam if he has a. maximum opening bid. vulnerable, as South you hold: 92 VAK843 AQ1092 4Q The bidding has proceeded: South West North East 1 V Pass 1 Pass 2 Pass 3 Pass I What do you bid now? raise to three dia- monds is constructive, since your rebid was not forcing and partner could have passed with a weak hand. Thus, prospects for game are there, so we suggest a bid of four diamonds.

Then he should stick to that diet or add a few calories for maintenance once he has gotten down to the desired level. Too much coffee can be harmful. For more information you can write to me at P.O.

Flashback By The Canadian Press Oct. 21, 1974 A British fleet under Lord Nelson annihilated a Franco Spanish fleet 169 years ago in 1805 at the battle of Trafalgar. It climaxed a year long chase from France to Egypt to the West Indies and back. The British lost 450 kill- ed and wounded in a fleet of 37 ships but captured 19 and sank one of the enemy's 40 ships, taking prisoners. Nelson was killed by a sniper during the battle but victory assured British command of the seas for decades. 1879 American inventor Thomas A. Edison tested the first practical incandescent electric light bulb. 1900 The business district of Sydney, N.S., was swept by a fire which caused worth of damage.

Ask Andy FIREFLIES Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Carl Haefner III, age 10, of Williamsport, Pa., for his question: Where do fireflies spend the winter? Fireflies belong to warm summer evenings, or so it seems. It would be nice if they were around in the winter to add their twinkling sparks to the falling snowflakes. But they are not and this is quite mysterious. For if they all died out in the fall there would be no fireflies next summer. Obviously they must have safe and secret hiding places to spend the winter. But where in the world are they? Dozens of different fireflies flash their fairy lights in different parts of the world. But they're not really flies. Actually they are beetles and it so happens that the bee- tle insects outnumber all the other creatures in the world. All of them live their lives in four separate stages, and in most cases their life stages are timed to match the summer and winter seasons. The life cycle begins on a warm summer evening when those soft golden sparks wink on and wink off. The male fireflies are winking and blinking signals to the females. Soon the females reply with winks of their own, and the couples find each other. After the mating, a female firefly lays at least 75 little round eggs and maybe as many as 150. Chances are she lays them on the ground in fallen leaves or rotting wood. After a week or 10 days, the .eggs hatch and the baby lar- vae are close to their favorite food. This is very important because, during a beetle's lifetime, most of his eating is done during the larval stage. Many kinds of firefly larvae are meat eaters. They have special digestive juices to dis- solve the bodies of snails and slugs. Other types prefer plant food and feed on roots or rotting wood. In any case, the female lays her eggs where the wormy grubs will find plenty of their favorite foods. Since many fireflies live in tropical and semitropical climates, they do not have to worry too much about the winter. Some types spend the entire winter in the larval stage. Others live as larvae through several years summers and winters. But sooner or later each grubby worm must progress to the next stage of his life. When he has eaten all he possibly can, which may be enough to last through the rest of his life, the firefly larva burrows down into the ground and becomes a pupa. If the winter season is chilly, he may remain in this stage until spring. When the warm weather returns, the pupa cracks open and an adult winged firefly struggles forth to add his winking sparkles to the evening air. by chil- dren of Herald roadort ahould mailed to Ask, Andy, P.O.
