C, m- t e r j e c t e d a bid of five diamonds! South went on to five spades and West dou- bled Before making the opening lead, Ellen Allen reviewed the bidding Altho their side had agreed upon hearts as the trump suit, her partner had bid diamonds at the five level Obviously, that could not be a suit in which he wanted to play. The only in- terpretation of the bid was that it was lead-directing Accordingly, she led the ten of diamonds, obeying her partner's instructions and at. the same time suggesting an entry in the high ranked suit East ruffed, and realizing that declarer was probably void in hearts, cashed the ace of clubs West signalled with the sev en, and East continued the suit to the king Back came another diamond, and a sec end ruff defeated the con- tract two tricks for a score of 500 than the value of a game for East- West Note that without East's lead-directing diamond bid West's natural lead is the ace of hearts Declarer would ruff and collect 11 top trumps and five make his contract Dear Dr Lamb Are vdncose veins and hardening of the arteries the same thing9 It not could vou tell me what thev are Dear Reader The veins are the vessels vou can see directlv underneath the skin as over the back of the hand and torearm You can also see the veins stand out in the feet and sometimes in the legs Thev usuallv have a bluish c oloration when viewed exter nallv The blood carried in the veins is returning from the (ells and is low in oxygen The low oxygen content contributes to the bluish coloration of the veins as you see them through the skin When the veins in the legs become markedly dilated they are called varicose veins This is particularlv apt to occur in wumen and especially follow- ing pregnancy The condition also occurs in men but less Irequentlv Hardening of the arteries is not a scientific term but is comrnonlv used to refer to atherosclerosis meaning fat tv deposits in the walls of the ai tenes These fatty deposits can later be calcified and the arterv becomes hard The arteries carry the blood away from the left side of the heart All of this blood has been ox- vgenated bv the lungs and hence it is red Its also under higher pressure than blood in the veins You usually can t see the arteries underneath the skin although vou may see the pumping of an artery in the temple in front of the ear and of course you can feel the pulse in the wrist which is caused bv the pumping action ot the heart Atherosclerosis or the fatty deposits seen in the arteries usuallv does not occur in the veins Thre is one notable ex ep11on It a vein is transplanted into the arterial system so it s exposed to the same pressure it will sometimes show fatty deposits and undergo atherosclerosis The pressure lac tor is important in whether a person develops atheiosclerosis or not and this is why high blood pressure is related to the development ot heart attacks and strokes Dear Dr Lamb They have lists ot the number of calories of different foods but what about the calories you lose while exercising Take for example walking How long and at what pace does it take to lose 100 calories9 Dear Reader Your point illustrates that people are more inclined to concern thenisel-.es about the calories thev eat than the calories they use The truth is both are im portant and the balance Isetween the two represents the fat deposits If you eat too manv calories and use too little vou develop fat deposits It s justlike a check- ing account There are tables that give the calories for all sorts of different physical activities is perhaps one of the most common activities A person who weighs 150 pounds and walks at a speed of three miles per hour on level ground will use about 60 calories more per mile than he would if sitting or resting quietly An hour of walking (three miles) would use 180 calories smaller individual would lose less 100-pound individual would use about 45 additional calories a mile while a heavier person at 200 pounds would use about 78 extra calories There are 3 500 calories in an ordinary pound of body fat 150 pound individual walk- ing JO minutes a day would use an ddditional 90 calories every In 365 days this would be equivalent to the calories in about nine or 10 pounds of foodv fat Send your questions to Dr Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P 0 Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N Y 10019 For a copy of Dr Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Losing Weight" booklet ANYWHERE BUT WM0 TOLD YOU THAT you COULD PLAY wMees CAN we I SAID NO BAU PLAYING NEAR MV HAQAR THE HORRIBLE WORRY YOU CAN'T A LITTLE OJLTLJRE WMILE TMERE I--KOM NEEP P6PFUME, AMP SOtAB Of EXCELLENT LACE...
