Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My doc- tor is an orthopedic surgeon. He told me I have "tennis technically called tenosynovitis. I want to know if he is right. The outer knuckle or knob on my elbow hurts when I grip with my arm completely extended straight. If I strike this knob against anything it hurts so bad that I almost cry. In a position such as the one I put my arm in (o write, my arm goes to sleep. Of course, there are other positions that do the same thing. There is a continuous ache in my elbow joint. My doctor gives me an in- jection of corticosteroids about every three months. I'm a pipefitter. He tells me that an operation may not help because manual labor such as my work would probably produce a recurrence. Dear Reader No doubt your doctor is correct. Tennis elbow can occur whenever the elbow joint is subjected to repeated strain and jarring. With the boom in tennis this condition is being seen with far greater frequency. Your arm has three main bones: the humerus, between the elbow and the shoulder, and the radius and ulna between the elbow and the hand. The two lower bones are held in place at the elbow hinge joint by a partial cap- sule of ligaments. These ligaments are attached direct- ly to rough surfaces and knobs on the bones. This joint was not made for excessive jarr- ing. As with other joints, if it is used in an unnatural way, it can become injured, setting up an inflammation. A baseball pitcher may develop a "pitcher's elbow" or a ballet dancer damage to her ankles. The hand can be rotated back and forth by the twisting of the two lower bones. When striking an object if the elbow joint, bones, and ligaments are not in the right position, it will be more injurious. You know that if you pick up a club and hold one end while hitting something with the other end you won't feel much of a jar. BUT, hit something about half way along the length of the club and you will feel it. I suspect your occupation has been a factor in putting a strain on your elbow joint. In the tennis player it is often that backhand It is important to know if there is any un- derlying problem that contributes to the disorder. Both gout and arthritis are sometimes a factor. Getting older, apparently with bone changes, is a factor. In fact tennis elbow occurs most often in the older athlete, par- ticularly those who play once a week. Treatment ideas vary. Surgery seldom helps. Medicines to relieve pain are often used, that includes cor- tisone injections, aspirin and other .measures. Rest, heat, massage, ultrasound and whirlpool baths are all useful in some cases. The best approach is to pre- vent the recurrent injury. Tennis players may rest the arm. Most don't like that solution. For tennis it is im- portant to learn to do it right. Professionals seldom have this problem, but some do (including both Arthur Ashe and Tony It often means a poorly controlled backhand. Exercises to strengthen the forearm muscles, learning the proper grip, and hitting the ball cor- rectly remove that abnormal jar to the elbow joint. Then happily, in some instances, the tennis elbow disappears for no good reason but to the satisfaction of everyone in- volved. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O.

Hunter It's- the 2246 game today. One 6, one 4, and two 2's. Us- ing all four each time, but no other digits at all, you form expressions for consecutive numbers from one up. Any arithmetical signs may be used, but no summation or factorial symbols. Don't forget decimals, regular and repeater, also powers and roots (no extra For example, 42 minus 6 plus 2 is a solution for 38. The limit without a break in continuity seems to be 138, with several tough solutions along the way. I shall be glad to check solutions. Yesterday's answer: SALLY was 12559.

GOREN TIM ChiCJJO Tnftvnt Both vulnerable South deals NORTH 2 V532 AQ J 64 A3 WEST EAST 63 V 10 VJ9876 4109852 4105 SOUTH J 9 8 5 V A K Q4 43 Q82 The bidding: South West North East Pass Dble. INT Pass 2NT Pass 3 NT Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Ten of V Just because it is your turn to bid is not reason enough to enter the auction. Unless your side has the potential to buy the contract, or unless youi bid has lead-directing poten- tial, it might be wiser to remain silent, lest you tip off the distribution to an alert declarer. East might have selected to pass at hi? first turn, to see how the bidding would develop. Alternatively, he could have bid one spade to suggest a lead. Instead, he decided to make a takoaut double, and drew a roadmap for South that steered him to the winning play. West got his side off to a good start with the ten of hearts. East overtook the jack and declarer won the queen. There were seven fast winners, and declarer could rule out the spade suit as a source of if he guessed to finesse for the ten. the defenders would have the heart suit set up before South could establish a spade. Thus, diamonds would have to be declarer's best friend, and the obvious way to tackle the suit was x-ia a that the bidding had almost cer- tainly marked East for the king of diamonds. East had made a vulnerable takeout double, and except for a pair of jacks, the only missing high cards were the ace-king-queen of spades and the king of diamonds. Almost certainly. East had to have all these cards. Therefore, declarer rejected the diamond finesse in favor of playing a diamond to the ace and a low diamond from dummy! When the king came tumbling down on the second lead, the queen and jack became the game-going tricks. What if East had started wilh three or more diamonds to the king? In that case, there would have been no way to make the contract. Work it out for ycmrsdf if yew don't believe me.

Ask Andy TELEVISION Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Anastasia Pflug, age 10, of Corona del Mar, Calif., for her question: Who invented television? A television set is one of the most complicated gadgets in our complicated world. What's more, it needs a broad- casting station with all sorts of complicated equipment to send the picture on its way. Many of Andy's readers often wonder which brilliant brain invented all these details. Ac- tually, many inventors and teams of inventors were need- ed to make the whole wonder- ful thing work. The best inventions often begin with just an idea. For example, the Wright Brothers had the idea that it would be very useful to build a flying machine. After much studying and many tests, they invented the airplane. But a television system is much more com- plicated and many very different inventions are need- ed to make it work. Maybe the idea was born after radio was invented. Several people thought that it would be nice to send pictures as well as sounds through the air. Early in the 1900s. many people were sending and receiving radio messages. Soon regular radio programs became very popular. Many inventors tried to find ways to add pictures to the programs. But the task was enormpus. Then it turned out that many of the most tricky problems had been solved or partly solv- ed m the past. These earlier inventors simply solved some interesting science problems, with no thoughts about televisison. For example, way back in 1873. two English scientists discovered that light causes electrical changes in selenium Later, this informa- tion was needed to build cer- tain TV cameras. In 1888. a German scientist found that light causes certain sub- stances to give off electrons. This idea is used in certain TV lubes l-n 1hc 1880s. Paul Nipkon of Germany invented a revolving disk to scan and relay moving pictures. In 1911, an English inventor found a way to scan with electrons. AU these and many other ideas were needed to make a workable TV system In the 1920s, several teams in America, England and Germany were trying to make a workable system. By this time several of the trickiest problems had been solved by great inventors. Lee De Forest of America invented the triode electrode tube and perfected it to amplify TV signals. In 1922, a 16-year-old American boy named Philo Farnsworth invented an electronic scanner that actually sent TV pictures. The next year, 1923, Vladimir Zworykin invented two basic gadgets that made the whole thing possible. One was the iconoscope, the special camera tube needed to broadcast pictures. The other was the kinescope, the picture tube that receives the programs in your TV set. In 1929. Zworykin used his two inventions with numerous other inventions to prove that the wonderful system was workable. This list is but a few of the key inventors who helped to make television possible. In 1928. the first American home TV set was demonstrated in Schenectady. The inventor was E. F. W. Alexanderson. The picture screen was three inches wide and the black and white pictures were somewhat blurry. It worked, but many more inventions were needed to make it work well. by chH- of nuitod to Art Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntlngton Boach, CoWomta 92MS. PuMoMng Co.
