Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIOQE Lawrence Lamb Dear Dr. Lamb I'm 11 years old. five-feet-three and weigh 90 to 95 pounds People think I'm rather slim, but I don't think I am. I take ballet and in ballet you should be skinny. People think I'm crazy, but I think I need a diet. I've gained 15 pounds in six months. I've stayed at my pre- sent weight about a month, and I suppose I'll gain five more pounds. I've only grown a little over three inches with my weight gain. I have a real problem because I eat continually and can't stop. I've tried several times to go on a diet, but it just won't work. Do you have any suggestions? I'd like to lose five or 10 pounds. Dear Reader The only way to tell if you are too fat or not is to see how much fat you have under your skin. If, indeed, you have a roll around the middle or some excess fat around your navel then you are eating more calories than you need. Otherwise, you probably need all those calories for your normal growth and development, and I wouldn't do a thing to help you damage your health. Sorry about that. During growth you are forming a lot of new body structures. Each tiny chemical compound that is formed uses some energy from your food to hook the atoms and chemicals together. Every muscle fiber you develop to help you become a mature, good ballet dancer is constructed by using lots of energy. That is why growing people use more energy than those of us who have stopped growing. Ob- viously you are still in your growth phase and need that vital energy badly. Also, the energy you use in ballet takes a number of calories. I know you have to practice regularly to become any good at ballet and regular exercise does end up using a lot of calories I think the best thing I can do for you is to dis- courage any real weight loss effort on your part unless you truly have excess fat under your skin. A good ballet dancer needs a strong, healthy body, and it is important that you eat right to obtain this goal. Dear Dr. Lamb Will you kindly tell me if there are any side effects to the drug Atromid-S used to reduce cholesterol levels? I use little or no food containing high amounts of cholesterol. Dear Reader Patients have tolerated Atromid-S sur- prisingly well. A few patients have digestive complaints, mostly nausea, diarrhea, gas and similar problems. Even fewer patients complain of headache, dizziness or weakness. This medicine, also known as clofibrate, is useful for many patients. It is not a substitute for a good dietary program, but, if needed, should be used with the diet. To control the cholesterol level you need to do more than just limit the foods that are' high in cholesterol. The body also makes cholesterol and will do so if you eat too many calories of any type, car- bohydrate, protein or fat, and is especially likely to produce fatty-cholesterol particles in the blood if you eat too much fat, particularly the saturated fats from animal sources. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on cholesterol, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Cholesterol" booklet. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Sept. 24, 1974 Six boxes of gold bullion worth were stolen from an unguarded building at Malton Airport, near Toronto. The gold, awaiting air ship- ment to Montreal, was never found but investigations in- dicated it had been flown in a private aircraft to New York. It was then believed to have been smuggled to Hong Kong and eventually to Communist China 1788 The first shipment of furs from Canada sailed for China. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN 1M4.

When dummy came down, de- clarer saw that the contract was in jeopardy. He had two heart losers and. with the ace of clubs marked in West s hand, two ciub losers. However, a study of the position revealed a slight chance The opening lead placed the king- of hearts in East's hand, which sug- gested that West held the queen of clubs in addition to the ace for his If he also held only two hearts, declarer realized that he would he able to set up the king of clubs for a heart discard from dutnrny. The initial step in de- clarer's campaign was to allow the queen of hearts to hold the first trick. The heart continuation was taken with the ace. trumps were drawn in two rounds ending in the closed hand, and a low- club was led toward the jack. West went in with the queen and shifted to a dia- mond, hut declarer was in control. He w-on the are of diamonds and played the jack of clubs, forcing the ace. The king was now set up for a heart discard, and declarer claimed the rest of the thicks. Xote that declarer can make his contract even if East piajs the kinij of hearts lo the first Now de- clarer must hope thai West started wilh quern jack ban in hearts. He w-jns the ace of draw continues in the A to lay their eggs. The most familiar crabs live along tidal shores, at least during the summer. When the tide goes out. they are often stranded on the beach or marooned in tidal pools. This does not bother them at all. because plenty of oxygen-rich moisture is trapped inside their crusty shells. Many species live inside damp burrows and visit the sea only once in a while. As a general rule, the crabs depend less on the sea than most other shellfish. One of the true land crabs is the robber crab, alias the coconut rrab This crusty character spends his entire adult life high and fairTy dry on the beach, scampering up and down coconut palm trees. There is a reason why this species and other land crabs ran survive out of water. True, they have gills as other crabs do. But their gills arc rather small and they have help The pJIs ol the robber crab are lucked inside pockets of spongy Jleih This special Jlrsh i.s t id-Jit-d with tony ,irc to ex- tract oxygen from moist air. The fleshy pockets act somewhat like lungs, which is why a land crab does not de- pend on high and low tidal waters. In fact, it has been proven that certain land crabs die when forcibly kept under water for several days. Ap- parently their pockets of spongy, lung-like tissue are more important than their ancestral gills. The crusty robber crab lives on beaches around the Indian Ocean and on many Pacific islands He is one-and-a-half feet wide and weighs six or seven pounds. Some observers say that he climbs palm trees "because he likes coconuts. Others suspect that he dines mostly on carrion and berries and may climb aloft because there is dewy moisture among the foliage. The male robber crab may not return to the sea at all dur- ing his adult life. But once a year, the female returns to lay her eggs in .the water. The young crablets remain in the sea through their complex lar- val stages. As mini-crabs they spend some time on the shore. by chil- dren of readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
