Eventually you must take chance If you are lo make the Dragonflies Andy sends a complete 20- volumc set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Charles P. Thomas, age 11, of Merrill- ville, Indiana, for his ques- tion: Is it true that dragonflics can- not walk? Sometimes a dragonfly may take a few tottering steps. But her six long skinny legs were not made for walking They are used a great deal for perching on twiggy foliage and to- gether they form an excelleni market basket. But walking around is not that important. For the or so dragonfly cousins include the champion fliers of the entire insect world. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Rapid heart beat causes anxiety Dear Dr. Lamb 1 read your column about paroxysmal tachycardia and I am very much interested as I am a vic- tim of I've been to two doc- tors and Ihey both tell me not to worry about it, but while you have it there is great anxiety and it scares you, which only adds to (lie discomfort. The doctor said I have a prema- ture heart beat and twice in two years my heart went into a spasm The first attack last- ed four hours and the second one lasted 10 hours. The doc- gave me pbenobarb. Only he pressed my eyeballs back and it went back to its normal rhythm. Any information you can give would be appreciated. Dear Reader Your story is typical for paroxysmal tach- ycardia. The heart may be beatuig perfectly normal and then suddenly it starts beating much faster. If the rate is very fast, the heart doesn't function properly as a pump and one develops symptoms. You are right, it certainly makes a person anxious and this does add lo the problem. Despite the discomfort, unless there are other problems such disturbances are not likely to be damaging. They cause more trouble in older people because heart disease is usually also present. I saw many pilots and even astronaut candidates with this problem, so it can and of- ten docs occur in people who are otherwise healthy. For frequent attacks, it is wise to give medicine these medicines belong to or have the same actions as quinidine. They decrease the irritability of the heart muscle making it less likely to have such rapid rates. Not everyone tolerates these medicines well so doc- tors are reluctant to give them to patients who have very few attacks. Of course any patient who has such episodes must be thoroughly studied to be cer- tain they don't have some other problem, like an overactive thy- roid gland that can be causing the trouble. One irate reader wrote to inform me they are caused by low blod sugar. This is only one of many causes fand not a very common If it were that simple the examina- tion and treatment would be easy. Pressing on the eyeballs wil] stop the attacks, in some cases. This is a reflex action. The nerves from the eyes said a signal to the brain and stimu- late the vagus nerve to send a powerful signal to the heart and can slow the heart mark- edly. When it works, the rapid rate stops abruptly, as you have described. The same ef- fect can be accomplished by pressure over the neck (over the carotid This proce- dure should only be done by a doctor since it can cause prob- lems. Sometimes gagging or breath holding will stop an attack through a similar reflex mech- anism. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN [C lin: Br Thi CtikHB Trttm] vulnerable. North deals.

Sunbeams glisten from their big gauzy wings. Their long skinny bodies shine like polished metals with greens and blues, yellows and reds. Each species favors its own scheme of jewel-tone colors. The large true dragonflies are the champion insect fliers and some of them can even outfly small birds. Their glis- tening wings vibrate as they dart among the foliage, bank and turn, suddenly brake and hover over a quiet pool or stream. These insects keep so busy because they are always fam- ished. And their only food is meat, alive and kicking. Their menus include flies, midges, mosquitoes and almost any in- sect that comes within reach. And most of these food items are caught on Ihe As a dragonfly hunter zooms through the air, he carries a market basket which he creates by entwining his long skinny legs in a sort of net. He can outfly and outmaneuver other insects and his leggy market basket is just fine for scooping up his victims. Some- times he eats a snack as lie flies, then zooms right on to catch the next one. Sometimes he catches a beetle or some other largish bug. Then he may perch on a twig and enjoy a sit-dowr dinner. But when he lands, he rarely if ever moves from his perch. He can ding by his toes, but his long skinny legs are too weak to do much walking. Dur- ing the courting season, he may creep a few steps forward to grab Irold of a lady dragon- fly. When it's time to lay her eggs, she mast place them in or on the water. Sometimes she has to take a few steps to lay her eggs on a submerged water weed. But walking is so tiresome that she often perches on an overhanging twig and drops the eggs into the "rater. Perhaps a dragonfly could take a walk if he tried, but those skinny weak legs would not take him very far. In any case, he seems to detest this form of exercise. After all, such a splendid flier does not need to walk or run and he has more useful things to do with his long skinny legs. Dragonflies are amphibious insects, which means that they live part of their lives in the water and part on the land. The eggs hatch into grubby nymphs always famished like their parents. They, too, live on live meat, though they catch it and gobble it uuder water. As they grow, Ihey molt their skins for larger ones. After about one year and 12 molls, they are ready to emerge with their This is a good time to try a calculated risk. SCOlil'IO (Oct. 23 Nov.

Riot gas gets okay LONDON (AP) A commit- tee of doctors and scientists has given CS gas a clean bill of health for use in rids. The committee said in a state- ment today that the gas might cause serious injury or death only under exceptional circum- stances, and "in conditions of civil operations with disciplined troops and police, it is highly improbable that such circum- stances could occur." The committee said that there was no evidence that the gas, used frequently in riots in Northern Ireland, harmed the young or the elderly particu- larly or that it affected preg- nancy. There were no indications of longrterm effects such as can- cer, but experiments on animals were proceeding, the comittce :said. CS gas, a modified form of lear gas, also causes nausea, J couching and difficulty in brea- thing. NOW THAT YOJ AND I ARE THROU6H, SCHROEPER, I'M RETIWNIN6 ALL THE 6IFK I WAS SOIN6TO 6IVE W...
