LAMB. M. O. Four-year-old swallows Pear Dr Lamb A few months ago. while playing with her doll, my four year old daughter swallowed a straight pin. The pin went down her windpipe and lodged in her right lung. She was rushed to a lung specialist. He went down her windpipe many times try- ing to remove the pin. But he could not reach it. She had no complications except just the pin in her lung for five months. The doctors kept planning lung tongue. Just two weeks before this she had x-rays. So the pin must have come all the way from the bottom lobe of her lung, out to her mouth. Lung specialists said they had never heard of this before. Tell me how the pin could have gotten out without complications Dear Reader Your girl was very lucky. The surgery. After five months TUMBLEWEEDS-By TOM K. RYAN Of- ALLTHE UNHOLY GALL! HOW PARE VOU ASK TO PORROW THIS What are vipers? Andy sends a complete 20- volumc set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Eric Hodson, ago 10, of Penticton, B.C., Canada, for his question: Which snakes arc called vj. pers? Any snake may be called a serpent because all snakes are classified in the suborder Ser. pentes. But strictly speaking, the name viper belongs to the minority of poisonous snakes and even some of these are not classified as vipers. According to scientists, the true vipers are a group of poisonous snakes native to the Old World. The pit vipers are a group ol New World snakes. The true vipers of the Family Viperidae strongly resemble on. native rattlesnakes.

It may well have moved while .she was lying down and didn't become fired in one position. The air passages are lined with a type of fine hair and form mucus that serves to clean the air and the air passages. They naturally tend to act to move things up and out. Straight pins however are a bit beyond the call of d u t y. The mucus nor- mally secreled the air pas- sages probably helped carry the pin up the windpipe to the point that she could cough it up in her sputum. One of the problems with small children is that you never know just what they may have swallowed or have gotten in t' lungs. And if you don't see it happen you never know it until trouble occurs if it does. You speak as if your girl, for in- stance, had no trouble for five months even though a straight pin was in the lung. Our rattlers are classed P't vipers because they have -lollow dents in their heads, fitted with sensitive nerves to detect warm-blooded victims. The true vipers do not have this special sensory organ. However, their fangs are long- er and the largest true viper can inflict a deeper, more dan- gerous bite than even our dead- ly diamond-black rattler. Most snakes keep to a fairly small range. But the common viper, alias the adder, ranges wide and high. He is found throughout Europe as far north as the Arctic Circle, two milts high in the Alps and eastward to the shores of Asia though only about two feet long, he is a very savage creature, always eager to strike Like most vi- pers he is handsome. As a rule his back is marked with a long zigzag band bordered with rows or black buttons. This adder viper likes dry heaths and moors and enjoys basking in the sunshine. He be- comes alert after dark, when he goes hunting for rodents, snails and lizards, frogs and worms. Mrs. Adder gives birth to live babies, each wrapped in what looks like a clear plastic bag. The sturdy youngsters rin themselves free and start forth Lo hunt. Each has enough venom to slay four mice. Some observers claim that young ad- ders wag their tail to lure vic- tims within striking distance. The asp adder prefers the warmer regions of southern Europe. This bad-tempered snake is reddish brown and perhaps a yard long. In far away India, his cousin the Rus- sell's viper is feared as greatly as the dreadful cobra. This handson-.e five-foot snake is pale brown, with black bands bordered with gold or while. Most of the world's true vipers live in Africa in secret bur- rows, half hidden in the sands or coiled up in piles of trash. One of these is Ihe gaboon, the giant of (he viper family. This dangerous character may be five or six feet long. All the true vipers tend to have thick, wide bodies and tiny pointed tails, Most, but not all of them are savage crea- tures. But several small vipers and at least one large one lend to be rather timid and shy away from people. However, they strike when provoked and the bit" of any viper is deadly dangerous because these snakes have extra-long fangs and exlra-sbrong venom. Many victims die without speedy medical help. The puff adder of Africa, has thick body, adorned with a Jattern that resembles rows of jale half moons in a mackeral sky. This venomous viper is in no way related to the harmless and helpful puff adders of America. Our so-called pirff ad- ders are non poisonous and spend their time controlling the rodent populations.
