Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 34 and have had a complete hysterectomy. I was told a woman could not live without estrogen, and yet I know, several women who have had the same operation who have gotten along without taking shots or pills. A couple of them were in their 20s. They said the only thing was they were thrown into the change of life early. Could you please explain the difference to me as I am confused, and I don't have a doctor anymore as our doctor left the area. I was taking estrogen shots and pills, but I am taking nothing now. If I can live without estrogen I would rather. My doctor never said I had to take it at all in the first place. It was my mother who says I need it. Dear Reader First, just having a complete hyster- ectomy does not mean that there will be any loss of ovaries, and these may be left in place when a hysterectomy is done. And, usually they will be left in unless there is some disease of them that requires their removal The difference between whether the ovaries were taken out or left in is one faction in the different responses women have to this type of surgery. If the ovaries are taken out then a young woman will have a premature menopause. However, estrogen is also manufactured by the adrenal gland. Deciding whether any woman, with or without an operation, needs estrogen is dependent upon the results of a medical examination. Some women go through the menopause with no problems and never take estrogen. In others it is very useful in controlling symptoms and preventing changes. In any case, you do not die because your body is not producing a large amount of estrogen. My advice would be te find a doctor and get a good examination to find out what you need, not what your mother needed or your girl friends needed. Only then you can know if YOU really need any additional female hormone or not. For more information write to me in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N. Y. 10019, and ask for the booklet on menopause. Send 50 cents to cover costs. Dear Dr. Lamb Can being overweight cause pain in the chest? Dear Reader Yes. It contributes to causing a hernia of part of the stomach through the normal, but enlarged, hole in the diaphragm. This is quite a common problem in our society in middle aged and older people. The hernia causes a leak of normal acid digestive juices into the esophagus. This irritates the lower esophagus and causes a burning pain at the lower end of the breastbone. It can also cause the esophagus to go into spasm, creating pain in the middle of the chest, not unlike a heart attack. The obesity contributes to heart disease, which leads to chest pain. It also contributes to the problem of arthritis. Dr. Lamb welcomes questions from his readers, but because of the volume of' mail he cannot answer personally. Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. Write Dr. Lamb in care of this! newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

The Aces, world champions in 1970 and 1971, and strength- ened by Canadians Eric Mur- ray and Sammy Kehela, gen- erally regarded as one of the world's great pairs, will be trying to avenge last year's defeat at the hands of the Italians. Kehela first attracted atten- tion in British bridge circles some 20 years ago as a mere stripling. Since then he has developed into one of the game's great card players, as this deal illustrates. Against four hearts. West led the king of clubs and con- tinued with the ace, which Kehela ruffed. It seemed that the contract hinged on the location of the ace of spades, but West's vulnerable over- call made him a favorite to hold that card. Unless the ace was singleton or double- ton, which would permit de- clarer to establish his king by leading low spades twice from his hand, there was considerable danger of losing three spade tricks as well as a club. However, Kehela un- earthed a better line that guaranteed the contract pro- vided West held at least one diamond honor. After drawing the outstand- ing trumps, he ruffed dum- my's remaining club. He crossed back to dummy with a trump and led a diamond. East played low and, despite the fact that the diamond was singleton in dummy, de- clarer did not play the ace- be finessed the ten! This highly unusual play had strange repercussions. West won the king of dia- monds but was caught in a rare endplay. If he returned a diamond, it would be into declarer's ace-jack, allowing him to discard two spades from dummy; a spade return would limit the defenders to one trick in the suit, for one of dummy's spades would go on the ace of diamonds, while a club would give declarer a ruff-and-sluff.

Ask Andy CLAMSHELLS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Blake Lippi, age 10, of Pekin, Illinois for his question: Exactly how does a clam build his shell? The clams have been building their neat shells in the same old way for millions of years Each baby clam inherited the pattern from his parents and he starts on this shell building program as soon as he hatches. When times are good and he has plenty to eat, he adds new ridges around the edges. As he grows older, his soft body grows bigger and he needs more room inside his shells. The clam's two shells are hinged together with a very strong muscle. When he relax- es his hinge, the two shells part to let in the water. The hinge also can close the shells tight to shut out his enemies. The oldest part of the shell is next to the hinge. Some of the grooves in this section were made when he was a tiny baby. Inside the shells, his boneless body is enfolded in two fleshy flaps called the mantle. This is where the sturdy shells are created, fragment by tiny fragment. Actually, each shell is a tough, hard sandwich with three layers made from chalky materials called calciums. The mantle uses a very clever plan to make the shells bigger and bigger. The edges of the loose man- tle slaps reach to the outside edges of the two shells. This part of the mantle oozes two kinds of shell building material. When these sticky materials dry, they form tough layers of shells. Another forms the hard shiny inside layer of the shells. The clam adds an outer rim around his two shells during the seasons when food is plentiful and the water as pleasantly warm. The inside layers of the shells are something special. They are made of very smooth pearly material to protect his soft body from scratches. This hard, pearly layer is added like a paint job, ail over his in- side walls This special material oozes from all over the upper surface of the mantle, which is just under the shells. When this oozy stuff dries, the inside walls of the two shells have a complete new pearly paint job. A clam, of course, lives a very quiet life. You might think that he is out of touct with the outside world. But this is not so. When he partly opens his shells, rows of tiny threads on his body wave streams of water in and out. His gills sift and dissolve ox- ygen and send out waste carbon dioxide. Scraps of floating food enter his little round mouth to be digested. From the water he also takes the calcium type chemicals he uses to build his shells. His clever mantle arranges these mini mini particles in different for- mations When these oozy mixtures dry, they form the three different layers of his shells. The clam may live in the sil- ty sand of the sea or on the soggy floor of a stream. His private water supply is part of the world wide streams and oceans. This water dissolves all sorts of chemicals from the rocks. When it enters the clam, he extracts a supply of shell building calcium chemicals.
