Dcar Dr. Lamb 1 read your article on angiograms and coronary catheterization, and I war particularly interested be- cause I have had this procedure done. It wasn't a very comfort- able feeling and it took a long time. Anyway, the doctors were satisfied with my x-rays and told me I have idiopathic hy- perlrophic subaortic stenosis. Of course, the doctor' went on to explain what each word meant but I've forgotten a n A would like for you lo explain. How dangerous is this disease? Dear Reader Idiopathic is a fancy medical word that we doctors use to say don't know what causes the problem. It sounds a lot better than say- iny I don't know. Hyper means excessive and trophic means growth; thus excessive growth or overgrowth. Subaortic means underneath the aortic value which is the miin valve con trolling the outflow of b 1 o o t from the main left pumpinj chamber of the heart into thi giant aortic artery that carrie. blood to the entire body cxcep the lungs. Stenosis means to oc live than ever. AQUARIUS (.Ian. 20 Feb. Think early about what is ssential and what is not, cle- ide on the minimum activity, attend to it thoroughly.

Now, with Liverpool re-opened, CP Ships' five container vessels are in full service. elude or obstruct, so the entin erm really means an obstruc ion or occlusion of the regio just beneath the aortic valv caused by an overgrowth of tis sue. The reason for the over growth of tissue isn't known, it's called idiopathic. The main effect of this prob lem is to obstruct the of blood from the left side the heart to the body. The mu: cular left heart chamber ha to pump harder to force th blood past this narrow openin or obstruction. For this' reaso the muscle of the left hea hamber enlarge causing car- ac enlargement from ork. If the heart muscle has y work loo hard and there is ot enough circulation, to the eart muscle itself, then a per- )ii can hi.ve heart pain or an- inal pain similar to that caus- al by fatty deposits in the ar- erics to the heart muscle.

J Depending on the over-all eart status and the health of ne individual, and depending n the question of whether the vergrowth of tissue will grow jack again or not, some indivi- duals with tliis problem can lave heart surgery and the ov- ergrowth material removed. ?hese kinds of decisions have o be made on an individual basis. Considering the type of evaluation you have had, I'm certain your doctor is aware of these various possibilities and will be able to give you the ]est possible advice on what you should do. Here's more on cancer and food. Dr. Robert A. Good, one of the world's leading immun- ologists, reports that experi- mental studies in animals and human populations show that if you decrease the level of prot ein in the diet you can de- crease the incidence of cancer. But, if you go too far and have a protein deficiency, you are more susceptible to cancer. J looks like there's an optima amount of protein in the die and defining this optimal amount may be difficult. TUMBUEWEEQS-By Tom K. Ryan THEN WHY ARE YOU SITTING-UP THEP.fi? YOU WER A COW00Y!

Past Pass Pass Opening lead: Nine of C? When North opened the bidding with two no trump, announcing a holding of 22- 24 high card points, South had just enough with threa points -to contemplate a. game. Holding nine cards in the major suits, he properly chose to explore for a suit contract by bidding three clubs. This call is conven- tional and requests the open- er to show a major suit if he holds, either four hearts or four spate. North's rebid of three dia- monds denied a major, and. South now bid three hearts. Altho North persisted to three no trump, South could not accept partner's choice, for his own holding figured to be worthless as a dummy since he had no reentry to the hearts once that suit be- came established. He felt obliged to carry on to Jour hearts and hope for the best. West opened the nine of hearts, which seemed to place the king with East. South observed that it he took the finesse and it lost, he would have only nine hearts, two dia- monds, two clubs, and one spade. If spades divided three-three, he could establish a long card in that suit for a 10th trick. Inasmuch as the odds Dm not favor an even division in spades, South decided to try to make all of his hearts by ruffing out dummy's minor suit cards. The ace of hearts was played at trick one; then the ace and king of clubs were cashed, followed by a third round which de- clarer ruffed with the seven of hearts as the queen of clubs appeared from West. The North hand was re- entered with the diamond king, and a fourth round of clubs was led. East covered with the jack, and South trumped with the ten of hearts, on which West dis- carded z diamond. The ace of diamonds put dummy in, and a third diamond was now ruffed with the jack of hearts as both opponents followed suit. A spade to the ace permit- ted the lead of a fourth dia- mond and there was no way that East could prevent South from scoring his I0th trick with the queen of hearts. If tie former ruffed in himself, with the king of hearts, it would establish de- clarer's queen by force. In all, South took two clubs, two diamonds, one heart, and one spade in dummy and four hearts in his own hand. Speedy YOU TALK TO AW STOMAOl LI'l ABNER-By Al Capp Andy sencs a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stud- ents Encyclopedia to Beverly Newman, age 12, of Visalia, California, for her question: What determines the speed of Ilalley's comet? Right now, Ilalley's comet is dawdling along about halfway between the orbits of Neptune and Uranus. In 1986, it is ex- pected to make a razzle-dazzle U-turn around the sun at about one million miles an hour. The Earth's orbital speed is very slightly faster in Decem- ber, when it swings a little closer to the sun. The dramatic changes in the speed of the famous comet also are related to the distance it happens to be from the sun. 9 When the heavenly bodies were formed, they were set going in certain directions at certain speeds. Then the 1 a w of gravity took command to keep them in their places, Its pulling force reaches out from the centre of every celestial object, getting weaker as it spans outward across the uni- verse. Its strength depends upon mass, the amount of mat- ter packed into the size or vol- ume of a heavenly body. More than 99 per cent of the material in our Solar System is packed into the massive sun, and its pulling power is enor- mous. The less massive planets and cornets pull back with their weaker quotas of gravity This cosmic tug-of-war helps to keep the Solar System in shape. But is not the whole story. If it v.'ere, the sun's mighty gravity would pull all its children down into its fiery furnace. This downward pull is counteracted by other bodies' spinning motions around their orbits. A planet's orbital speed is adjusted to match the sun's pull at a certain distance. Its orbit is almost round, ancl it speeds up only slightly when it comes slightly closer to the Halley's comet travels around a long, narrow orbit. Its dis- tance from the sun varies from a few million miles to more than million miles. Once every 76 years or so, it makes a close U-turn around the sun. Then it departs to make a re- turn loop, far out beyond the orbit of Neptune. The' speed of thee ntirero und trip is deter- mined by the comet's distance from the sun. In 1848, it dawdled at a snail's pace around the outer limit of its orbit. At this far- Ihest distance the sun's gravity was weakest. Now it is well inside the orbit of Neptune, ap- proaching the sun. During the next 14 years its speed will ac- celerate as the distance grows shorter and the sun's gravity becomes stronger. When i lasses the orbit of Mars, i will be travelling very fast in deed. If it. perform as it did the past, the ciose brush around the sun will be made at about a million miles an hour As it departs, its speed _will de crease as the sun's gravity dim- inishes with distance. H There is always a chance thai. the famous comet may meet a mishap on its long orbit. If it chances to come close lo Jupi- ter, the gravity of the big planet could change its speed and perhaps its direction. The fast spin might make it swerve clear out of the Solar System. Or the famous comet might be captured to join Jupiter's large family c( moons. There its speed would be adjusted to its distance from the giant planet.
