Andy sends a complete 20- rolumc set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Jimmy Arn- hart, age 11, of Chamblee, Georgia, for his question: Can Swamps be useful? The answer to this question is changing with the times, thank goodness. A generation ago, the question was: Can swamps be converted to be use- the day and its extension into is rare but can happen. Your swamps play a vital role in the ecology. They are indirectly useful to us because they help nature to maintain a world worth living in. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Silent heart attack can really occur Dear Dr. Lamb During a recent, checkup an internist told me 1 had a heart attack in the past and electrocardiogram shows scarred tissue. It came as a shock as I've never been known to have a heart condi- tion previously. Could this pis- Sibly be brought on by smok- ing? On my medical claim he diagnosed it as ASHD old M.I. Could you please explain this in your column and1 is it serious? Dear Reader Yes, you can have a heart attack and never know it. We call these "silent heart attacks" and they are usually found an electro- cardiogram during a routine ex- amination, or are noted on a post-mortem examination. Not all of these are truly without symptoms or silent, but cause such mild symptoms that the condition is not sus- pected. I have seen several ap- parently healthy men who have had this occur and then they remembered an episode of mild indigestion they had ignored. We bad problems of this sort with the U.S. Air Force flying population. Others had no story of any illness whatever, Some people normally have electrocardiograms that look like those caused by heart at- tacks. This is why I hate to diagnose a heart attack if the person has not had any trou- ble and otherwise appears nor- mal. The best way to be sure a heart attack has occurred is to have an old record avail- able for comparison. Since we had yearly records for the air force flying population we were able to spot changes and also knew what a man's record look- ed like normally. Sometimes we could spot heart trouble sooner because a change had occurred from the earlier record. This is one reason I recommend that every adult should have an electrocardiogram and it should be part of the permanent medi- cal records for later study and comparison. Silent heart attacks are caus- ed by the same thing as those that cause symptoms. This in- cludes smoking. A heavy smok- er man or woman will increase his likelihood of hav- ing a heart attack as much as three times the risk he might have if he didn't smoke. Stop- ping smoking almost immedi- ately removes the increased risk so it is never too late to quit. M.I. means old myoeardial infarction, the medical term for damage (infarction) to the heart muscle and ASHD is an abbreviation for arteriosclerotic heart dis- ease, the common type of heart disease caused by fatty depos- its (atherosclerosis) in the ar- terits leading to the heart. I am amazed that there are not more silent heart attacks since the heart itself is nearly- devoid of nerves for pain. The pain frnm a heart attack is really referred pain to other areas of the body, like the arm, shoulder or chest. Alberta labor act may be overhauled EDMONTON (CP) The Al- bcrta government will exam- ine possible revisions to the la- bor act that could reduce "the incidence of serious confronta- tion-type disputes that result in labor minister Bert Hohol said here. The government will hold public hearings on the act next year and present revisions at the 1973 session, the minister said in an interview. The legislation was passed during the 1971) session by the vSocial C'redit government which has recently been suc- ceeded by the Progressive Con- servatives. The Social Credit government had planned public hearing and revisions to the act. JOLLY TIME POP RQRM Dr. Hohol said the negotia- tions process will be a major area where revisions could be expected to be sought by labor and management. "I don't want to reflect any kind of he said. "All the parties will be able to have their say. "But certainly we will be looking for additional mechan- isms to assist in concluding contracts that may lessen the incidence of serious confronta- tion-type disputes that result in strikes." He said the provision requir- ing 30 days' notice to be given when a party wants to rene- gotiate a labor contract is a prime example of a situation where revisions could be ex- pected. "It's far too short a period (or meaningful negotiations to be able to take he said. The government might also look at provisions permitting it to intervene if after a speci- fied period of negotiations has passed, it appears that one side or Uie other is not negotiating in good faith. Dr. Hohol said ho would pre- fer to sec the bargaining pro- cess by itself. "If we can set guidelines ac> ceptable to labor and manage- ment, a new atmosphere to ne- gotiate might be found." He said labor management encounters between now and the time hearings iKfiin will likely prepare the way for some kind of agreement. He said poor negotiating con- ditions affect the economy of the province nnd the individual and the pcrformanci! of labov and management. In the past, people decided that useful things were the ones that could be put to work in some way right then and there. It seemed silly to decide that a forest or a swamp could be useful just as it is. Now- adays, thank goodness, we are taking a wider view of the glo- bal scene. We know that na- ture intended to make room for many very different scenes in the planetary picture. They depend upon each other in a multitude of mysterious ways. They work togeUicr in the bal- anced systems of ecology that support all life on this luxurious planet including ttie life of mankind. Obviously the lands and oceans, mountains and valleys are parts of the geographical picture. Each is populated with suitable plants and animals adapted to life in the locality. Every species needs oxygen and water. This is served free all over the world, either dis- solved in water or mingled in air. Streams and swamps are the geographical features that distribute the water between the earth and its living things. True, the swamp's, stagnant waters attract and breed mos- quitoes. They also attract and breed frogs that devour mos- quitoes both the infants and adults. Parts of the swamp are clogged with waterweeds and provide oxygen for fishes, tad- poles and other gilled crea- tures. Around the edges, frin- ges of reeds and rushes grow ankle deep in the mud. They provide camouflage and shel- ter for coots and kingfishers. Greebes and bitterns, ducks and various other wild water birds migrate there to nest and educate their chicks. The soggy brink of swamp seems like a risky drinking hole. But wild creatures are careful and cautious in their ways. This may be tbe only water within their limited range. Chances are there are a few solid shores, a few boul- ders or fallen trunks to bridge the soggy mud. Badgers and porcupines, field mice and doz- ens of others carefully test out their safe spots. Hacoons slosh around, rinsing their food. All return to the swamp for their daily water or perish from thirst. So the swamps are useful and indeed necessary to the survival of countless species. If we wish to preserve our lux- urious world as nature intend- ed, then swamps must be in- cluded in the scene. Indirectly they are useful and indeed downright necessary to our long term survival. Though a swamp teems with life, many of its tenants are transients. Migrating birds de- pend upon it to nest and rear their young. Without it, the next generation of grebes and such could not return. The swamp also provides permanent habi- tats for countless other species who could not possibly survive in drier or wetter, higher or lower surroundings. This ex- plains why so many swamps are set aside as wildlife san ctuaries. Andy sends a World Book Globe to Polly Ingall, age 8. of Lansing, Michigan, for her question: How docs a green tomato turn red? The green and the red play hide-and-seek all summer long. Both colors are there in the tomato all the time, helping it to grow and ripen. They are very special chemicals with long fancy names. The green one is called chlorophyll. The chlorophyll in the baby green tomato uses the summer sun- shine to build sugar from air and water. Other magic chemi- cals in the plant remodel the sugar into all the different in- gredients it needs to grow. Some of the chemicals in the green tomato are yellow, orange or vivid red. But there is so much chlorophyll that it hides these other colors all sum- mer. At last the tomato grows to its full size. The green chlor- ophyll that helped to build it is no longer needed. So the plant breaks up the chlorophyll. The green fades away and the oth- er colors come out of hiding. The tomato begins to blush. When all the chlorophyll is gone, iLs smooth shiny skin is vivid red and ready to be pick- ed. Questions asxed by cnlTflrerj of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
