Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBR1DGE HERALD Thursday, September 21, LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Soldier's heart disease is rare Dear Dr. Lamb Would you comment on the difference be- tween soldier's heart disease and effort syndrome compared to angina pecto.'is by atherosclerosis in terms of their symptoms and treatment? I have been treated for coronary heart disease. My blood pres- sure is normal, 1 don't smoke, or have diabetes. I'm not over- weight, or have other ci circulatory problems. I'm in- clined to think my doctor may be treating me for the wrong thing and povhaps I have sold- ier's heart disease. Dear Header You must have been doing some reading since not very many people knew about soldier's heart dis- ease. Angina pectoris. of course, is pain in the chest usually caused by atherosclerosis (fatty deposits in the It is a very common disease in the American population and an- other manifestation of the same disorder of the heart that causes the common heart attack. The main difference is that the at- tacks are much shorter in dura- tion and often mildev. Soldier's heart disease is sometimes called neurocircula- tory asthenia. Individuals with the problem have sumptoms that simulate angina pectoris or heart have disease nothing although they structur ally WTOng with theiv heart. These individuals often have sharp pain under the left nipple. They become breathless with mini- mal amounts of exertion and some complain of skipped beats or palpitations of the heart Faintness while standing is common. It is also called "ef- fort syndrome" because many of the reactions resemble the feeling a person has aftev hav- ing done an unusual amount of effort. It was commonly observed in soldiers undergoing physica" ..aining and Sir Thomas Lemis, a famous British heart special- it, observed that it occurred in office wovkcrs and men with sedentary habits who were then put in to "a fairly vigorous phy- sical training program. Most heart specialists feel that indi- viduals who have this kind of problem are in poor physical condition and that the proper treatment is very gradual in- crease in the level of physical activity. Since a person who is taking medicine for heart disease, such as you are, may have a fairly serious problem, it is very important (hat the indivi- dual doesn't take it upon him- self to try to differentiate be- ,ween these two problems. That's what the doctor is for. If you're '.vrong and decide you merely have sumptoms caused >y an inadequate level of phy- sical fitness and embark on an exercise program on you? own, you can do yourself a great deal of harm. The doctor will his decision by careful examination and sometimes by the effects of exercise upon the electrocardiogram taken bc- fbTC, sometimes during, and after exercise period, irfihe doc- tor's office. If an individual has sufficient findings to make a diagnosis of angina pectoris or heart disease without the exer- cise procedure, the doctor may not wish to subject the patient to this test. Other universes? Andy sends a complete 2ft- I v olumo set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Ellen Thompson, age 12, of Waynesboro, Virginia, for her question: Have scientists found olhcr uni- verses besides our own? So far as we know, thove is no end to the infinite readies of snace. If by chance we found the outside edge, our next question would be: "What's on Ihe other Ob- viously our human minds can- not grasp Ihe concept of end- less infinity. But once in a while, every thinking person is tempted to think and wonder about it. This is a good cxcr- :ise to stretch the brain so long as we remember that we could not grasp the answer, even if we found it.

Some people refer to our own star system as an Island Uni- verse or the Milky Way Gal- axy and some still call it the universe. Maybe the simplest term for it is the Galaxy, spell- ed with a capital letter. Tile countless star systems it may be called other island universes, nebulae or nebulas. The simplest term seems lo be galaxies, spelled without a c n p i t a 1 lette: to distinguish them from our own Galaxy.

(AP) Treas- ury department officials re- ported Monday the arrest of one American and four Colom- bians and the seizure of seven pounds of cocaine, valued al more than on Ihe illicit drug market, at Miami Inter- national Airport during the weekend. The cocaine seizure was carried out by U.S. cus- toms agents. cause Ibe word "universe" ran away with itself. Originally it meant everything in our world, plus all tho things we knew about in the sky above. As scientists probed deeper into tlw space that su -rounds the parti, tlwy discovered that .here arc vast reaches beyond ;iie range of our eyes. The old jlea ot the visible universe ex- ploded, so to speak, beyond the range of human imagination. But people were used to the old "universe" and they tried lo keep it, even though it no longer fitted the known facts. This led lo a lot of confusion. The old word was given several extra meanings to bring it up to date. Several new terms were dubbed in lo clarify the situa- tion. Meantime we learned that our old visible universe is huge system of about 100 bil- lion stars, isolated in vast oceans of outer space. Thou- sands of similar star systems were discovered, separated by enormous distances from our universe and from each other Obviously we need some pre- GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Even if South had bid two dia- monds, it was North's Inten- tion to show his spade suit next to give his partner an opportunity to raise that juit if he had three card support. The slightly unbal- anced nature of North's hand including two worthless doubletons suggests that a suit kpnlract might be pref- erable. When South, somewhat unexpectedly, bid two spades, showing four of that suit, North proceeded direct- ly lo game in for in support of that suit, his hold- ing was worth 10 points. West opened the jack of diamonds, North played the Ihree and East put up the ace. The latter shifted to the fjueen ot clubs which was covered by declarer with the king. West won the trick with the ace and then exited with the deuce of clubs, East put up the ten and continued with the jack, forcing dum- my lo ruff with the three ot spades The king of spades was cashed and when East showed out, discarding the seven of -hearts, complica- tions set in, even tho West's jack could 'be picked up easily enough by finessing dummy's ten. U trumps had divided either two-two or three-one, South could trump out his long diamond. With the highly abnormal division -in spades, declarer sought for an alternative line ot play. He considered cashing the ace and king of hearts and then attempting to ruff a third round in his hand, but by so might subject himself to overruff by West. The play in clubs tended to indicate (hat that suit was divided four-four and inasmuch as West was known to hava four spades as well, that lett him with only five cards in the red suits. Since East held nine red cards, the burden of protect- ing heat is and diamonds might reit on the latter's shoulders and South decided to -cash out the trumps in order to place pressure on his right hand opponent. A spade was led to the ace as East gave up his remain- ing club. A small trump came next, West followed with the nine and the proven finesse of dummy's ten was taken as East parted with the of hearts. The queen ot spades drew West's jack of trumps and placed unbearable pressure on his partner. East could not ford to give up another heart, tor then the ace and king would drop the jack and queen and establish North's ten and six for two more tricks in the suit. East parted with the lour of diamonds and now dia- mond lead to the queen fol- lowed by the king dropped the four outstanding cards in the suit and established de- clarer's six for the game ful- filling trick. In all, South took five spades, two hearts, and three diamonds. BLONDIE-By Chic Young ;reatest of imaginable con- cepts with the wc-.-d cosmos. In my case, nothing lias been or vill be found beyond it The cosmic Universe includes all j know plus everything we I don't know. i Thi; thousands of known gal- axies, or universes, are cat- alogued by letters, numbers and sometimes clues to the con- stellations where they may be located in our skies. Our Gal- a.xy is a v; h c e 1 i n g lens with spiraling arms. It is called a spiral nebula. Many outer gal- axies are spiral nebula types. Others are S-shaped or barred. Some are hazy spheres in which, perhaps, the gases are still unborn stars. All of them are included in the one and only Universe, or cosmos.
