(ARK.) STAK Dr, Lamb Gimick diets will never die Lawrence E. Lamb, M.I). DEAR DR. LAMB - Recently in our paper there was an article about a new vitamin E plus C diet which was supposed lo give fast weight loss. Reading the article convinced me that il was another scheme to defraud gullible fat people who were so eager to reduce that they were willing to try anything. I am enclosing this article, and 1 hope you will comment on il, t'ilhi'f'p ro <"' con - according to its merits. DKAH READER - I can't find much fault in your impression These iicls are now swecmtm I he- country, listed as ;i new vitamin E discover) or the K plus C diet. The lis'i of foods in lln> diet shows lh;it it is another low-carbohydrate diet of the same lype used by Dr. Atkins or earlier by I Jr. Taller in "Calories Ixin'i Count." Dr. Tailor ran into legal problems with his diet, and the Atkins diet h a s b e en branded by knowledgeable and leading nutritionists in the country as unscientific and dangerous. Such diets work because the person eats fewer calories. Many high protein foods, lean steak for example, contain a lot of water. Lean raw round steak is 70 per cent water and a pound has only fiOO calories. These diets also cause the body to lose too much salt through the kidneys. Your body is more than 50 per cent water normally (your lean muscl'.-s are also 70 per cent water), and when you lose salt, water goes with it. The loss of too much sail and water leads to fatigue, faintness and a chemical disturbance of the body. You can recover from this by adding carbohydrates in a normal amount to your diet and then regain your normal amount of sail and water. The vitamins in the so- called E and C diet do nol do a thing lo cailse a person to lose weight. That is pure WIN AT BRIDGE hokum. It is a good idea to take vitamins, though, if one is on a poor or unbalanced diet thai lifnits all those important vegetables, cereals, fruits and milk with their es- seniial vitamins and minerals. .Such unbalanced diets are deficient in vitamins and minerals. The ad you sent me claims one can lose a pound a day. That may be true if you lose too much of your water and sail or if you slarl losing your importanl muscle mass. Thai means loss of protein from YOUR BODY. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat. Even if you ale nothing at all and wereslarved completely, your body would not use that many calories a day so you can't lose a pound of FAT a day with any of these diets. The misleading stalemenl is "a pound a day," bul Ihe question is A POUND OF WHAT? You have to be very active lo use 3,500 calories a day, and if you are starving you won't feel like being that active. When you see any ad stating you will lose a pound a day, raise your index of suspicion to the red alert level. If you lose muscle and cells from vital organs in the body, you are in trouble. Muscle tissue uses more calories even when il is resting than fat lissue does. Keeping a good muscular body helps you keep from gelling fat. Unsound diets thai cause you to lose part of your muscles fix your body so you use less calories al rest. Then you have to eat a lot less lo keep from gelling fat. These diets Ihen make il likely lhal you will have a diel and obesity problem thereafter. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care ol this newspaper. P.O. Box 1551. Radio City Station, New York.

Radio Cify Slalion New York NY 10019 By Oswald & James Jacoby One of the chapters in the Morehead-Frey book discusses the general folly of bidding your partner's cards for him. This hand is given as a proper example of when to bid for your parlner. The reason is that while he probably has little or nothing in the way of strength, his cards such as they are - will help you. If Wesl had opened ace and one spade he would have beaten the hand, but he did open the king of clubs. South ruffed, led a diamond to dummy's queen; a second diamond back 'o his ace, ruffed his last small diamond and played a trump. West took his ace and led his last diamond. East ruffed and the contract had flown away. Once dummy had been able to ruff that low diamond, South had a sure thing play staring him right in the tace. All he had to do was to ruff a second club in his hand, ruff his king of diamonds with dummy^ lasl trump, show the opponents his hand and claim his contract. He would have six tricks in and four sure trump tricks to come. K ENTEKPKISK ASS.N > The bidding has been: 13 West North East South l* Pass 2* Pass 3* Pass 3f Pass 3N.T. Pass ?

"Strong defense is the surest way to peace," he said Monday night in a first report to Congress and the nation. "Strength makes detente attainable. Weakness invites war, as my generation knows ..." The speech reflected Ford's commitment during 25 years in Congress to a strong military— and his recent loyalty to the Nixon administration's bid to case tensions with Moscow. "To our two peoples, and to all mankind, we owe a continued effort to live, and where possible to work together in peace," Ford said. "For, in a thermonuclear age, there can be no alternatives to a positive and peaceful relationship between our nations." Ford did not specify how much the United States should be willing to limit its military arsenal in a mutual arms reduction with the Soviet Union. One of his first big jobs will be to resolve differences between the Pentagon and the State Department in advance of a new round of nuclear arms talks in Geneva. Continuity was the key word for the new President. He used it each time in outlining eight foreign policy guidepusts. Among them: For the European allies and Japan—"continuity in the loyal collaboration of our many mutual endeavors." For mainland China—continuing on the course of friendship set by the Nixon Administration. For the Arab states and Israel—"we shall carry out our promise to promote continuing negotiation among all parties for a complete, just and lasting settlement." The Middle East seems sure to preoccupy Ford in his first week in the White House. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger opened talks late Monday with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy. Ford will see him on Wednesday and then receive Jordan's King Hussein on Friday. The diplomacy is designed to set the stage for a negotiated Israeli withdrawal from portions of the west bank of the Jordan River. Treasury Secretary William E. Simon, meanwhile, is directing a separate series of conferences with visiting Egyptians that will result Wednesday in the signing of new economic, scientific and possibly cultural agreements between Washington and Cairo. On the Soviet front, Kissinger confirmed that Leonid I. Brezh- nev, the Communist party leader, had sent Kissinger a message, in addition to the formal, goodwill note Soviet President Nikolai Podgorny sent to the White House. The contents of Brezhnev's message were not disclosed. White House sources said, meanwhile, that Ford may ask Brezhnev to advance his visit to the United States, now tentatively planned for late June or July. These sources also said Ford is considering a goodwill tour of Western Europe. Later, a White House spokesman said any overseas travel probably would not come until after the November elections.
