Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb A friend has recently been put on a strange diet by a doctor of good reputation, and it makes little sense to me. I unders- tand it was given for the pur- pose of fluid in the body and for a kidney condition. I'd like to try it for the fluid condition but hesitate to do anything so drastic. Nothing but cooked rice and orange juice for every meal for four or five days. Is it worth the try and has it any benefit for the system? Seems very unbalanced to rne, and I try to balance my diet to the best of knowledge as I cannot take drugs too well without side effects. Dear Readers There are many "strange diets" used for special medical problems that should never be used by the public without a doctor's recommendation. The diet you speak of is a variation of the "rice diet." It was pop- ularized by Dr. Walter Kempner at Duke University years ago. In its original form it included only limited amounts of rice and fruit. The rice diet has two big ad- vantages, it is low in salt and low in protein. You might wonder what advantage there would be to having a low pro- tein diet. If you have kidney disease you sometimes have trouble eliminating urea, the ammonia part of amino acids in the excess protein most people eat. It is also low in calories and can be used as a weight reducing diet. Like other such diets it can make you very weak. You need to take vitamins and minerals if you are on such a diet more than a few days. The rice diet was used very successfully in many patients with high blood pressure in the days when we had few, if any, effective medicines to offer for this problem. With new medicines it is rarely used. Still it does have its place in medical problems associated with retention of salt, kidney problems, and high blood pressure. The chief value of the diet has been demonstrated to be its ex- tremely low sodium content (low Since neither rice nor fruit contain any major amount of i'at and neither contain any cholesterol, it is truly a low- fat, low-cholesterol diet. It is an exhausting diet in many respects. It is certainly not something I could ever advise anyone to take just to manage normal cyclic changes in fluid retention. Absolutely no one should be on this diet unless the doctor has recommended it for a par- ticular problem. However, if I had a patient who could not be managed properly with medicines and a more general diet, I would give it serious consideration. You have to limit your calories on this diet to lose weight. Calories do count. I always remember one of my patients I had told to eat nothing but rice and fruit in the hopes of controlling his weight and heart disease problems. He did not lose weight. So I asked him. "Alan, what have you been He replied, "Just what you told me, doc. Just rice and fruit, rice and fruit." Being of a suspicious nature, I asked him, "what kind of "Oh, I've just been giving them hell." When the fruit was limited his weight began to disappear. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Losing Weight" booklet. (Newspaper Enterprise Fun with figures By J.A.H.

Ask Andy RACCOONS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Laura Dex, age 12, of Allen- town, Pennsylvania, for her question: What are baby raccoons called? Baby house cats, as everybody knows, are called kittens. But baby lions and tigers are called cubs. So are young foxes, bears and wolves, though the family dog gives birth to puppies. Baby seals also are pups. There seems to be no hard and fast rule for naming young mam- mals. But since the majority may be called cubs, we might suspect that baby raccoons may be called cubs. And this is correct. When you watch a baby rac- coon at play, his most suitable name seems to be Cutie. True, all young mammals are cute little animals. But this little charmer is more so than most. However, zoologists usually refer to him as cub, at least as long as he stays with his mother which is through the first year of his life. Our native raccoon ranges far north into Canada and way down south through Central America. In his northern range, he hibernates through the winter and the mating season comes later. The male raccoon mates with several females and departs to live a carefree life. The babes are born about nine weeks later. The female gives birth to a litter of from three to six cubs. They have thick, raccoon-type coats and clever little raccoon hands. Their furry tails are rather stubby, but they are marked with proper raccoon rings. Their little faces have dark raccoon masks, but the baby cubs do not open their bright eyes un- til they are about three weeks old. Their devoted mother gets no help from the male. For two months or so, the cubs are kept at home in their cozy nest and fed on mother's milk. At last, the playful little rascals are big enough to take their first walk through the woods. The high spirited cubs follow their mother, one behind another. Now and then, this one or that one is tempted to step out of line and investigate some fascinating item in the scenery. But not for long. The curious one soon realized that he or she is left behind and scampers to catch up. This exciting first walk through the woods is after dark, for raccoons usually sleep through the day and carry on most of their business at night. Through the summer, the patient mother teaches her growing cubs how and where to catch frogs and fish also which grains and berries are good to eat. She shows them how to dunk their food in a stream. Raccoons are hunted by people, dogs and wildcats. When trouble arrives, the mother coaxes her cubs to hide in a tree, while she leads her enemies on a chase through woods and streams. Later she returns to her brood. This merry childhood fun ends all too soon, for at the age of one year the former cubs are adults. The time has come to separate and lead their own lives. Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648.

The United States con- sulate-general here said the man, Thomas Edward Utter, Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Sept. 4, 1974 France proclaimed its Third Republic after the capture of Napoleon III in the Franco- Prussian War, 104 years ago today in 1870.

He is due to appear in federal court here Friday for a deportation hearing. Reports sent to Australian police by Interpol, the FBI and Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Stephen Trott said Utter travelled to Europe in 1968 with a wealthy California woman, Norma Wilson, 57. She never re- turned. But Utter did. An investiga- tion pressed by the woman's husband turned up bloodstain- ed clothing belonging to Mrs. Wilson in a Swiss railway station. A jawbone found in the Swiss countryside was also identified as hers, the reports said. Utter was living in Califor- nia when arrested in April, 1970. Investigations showed he had influenced the missing woman to sign over land worth more than million, and he was sentenced to life in prison following conviction for murder, robbery and grand theft. During the trial he claimed he was being framed because he wanted to run for political office. He ciaimed he had un- covered political corruption. After Utter escaped from jail in March, he and a girl- friend. Beth Greenhouse, fled to Europe, Inlerpol reports said they called on a friend of Beth's father in Vichy, June.
