Tuesday. September 3, 1974 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page Five Dr. Lamb Bulk aids natural reflex By Lawrence IE. Lamb, M.D, PEAR DR- LAMB - I would appreciate your comments about elimination. The problem affects the majority of humans and becomes more of a problem as age creeps upon us. It is inadvisable to become used to cathartics, vet it is difficult to establish a natural elimination pattern. Our daily lives are so hectic w e cannot heed "nature's call" as we rush to the office, or are busy on the phone or with customers. I read recently that if one lakes a tablespoon of pure apple cider vinegar in a glass of cold water upon arising it will start elimination 20 minutes after. Does this tend to thin our blood, and will this be harmful to us older retired folks? I drink eight glasses of water a day yet elimination doesn't seem easier. DEAR READER - No, the glass of water and cider will not harm you. However, it will not be any better than a glass of fruit juice or other liquids for breakfast. I favor a good breakfast containing whole cereal and at least two glasses of fluid. The urge that occurs naturally then in 15 to 30minutes is a natural reflex, stimulated by the stomach being filled. H is called the gastrocolic reflex. When trained and used it is a good way to develop good bowel habits. For more information about bowel training and Ihese problems write to me in care of this newspaper, P. O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on constipation. Send 50 cents to cover costs. While I think it is a good idea to drink a reasonable amount of water, it is of limited value in improving ,- The reason 's that the water you drink will be absorbed through the small intestine into the bloodstream. Any excess water you have is filtered out through the kidneys. So, drinking lots of water causes you to pass lots of urine but has little effect on the bowel functions. Us main benefits are in distending the stomach and initiating the gastrocolic reflex. This is a temporary reaction. Incidentally, since the kidneys flush out extra water, the water and cider will not thin your blood. To improve bowel function you need a training program and a diet that includes adequate amounts of bulk. The bulk in the solid foods you eat, not water, is essential to normal bowel function. DEAR DR. LAMB - What causes swelling of the stomach? DEAR READER - A common cause is having missed your period for nine months. Seriously, the common causes other than pregnancy are food, flatulence (gas), fluid and tumor. Gas is probably one of the main causes. But that is usually temporary. Fat is probably the leading cause. There is fat inside the abdominal cavity as well as outside. This usually goes along with a lack of muscle tone that leads to the big middle. Fluid accumulates in many women before their menses and they will notice the increase in girth. It also accumulates in some illnesses, such as liver disease or in some forms of heart disease. Tumor can cause enlargement of the abdomen. The spleen, for example, in some illnesses can become enormous. (NKWSI'AI'KH KNTKWHISK ASSN.I Detroit murder rate is setting record pace DETROIT (AP) - Charley Mathis took off his shoes last week and was shot to death •when a friend did'" like the smell of his feet. It went down on police records as a fatal shooting prompted by "allegedly odiferous feet." . Joe Peoples, 64, tried to stop a man stabbing a mongrel dog on an inner-city sidewalk. 'Shut up old man, or I'll kill you," the stranger said. An hour later Peoples was dead, knifed in the back. These two cases were among 516 homicides committed in Detroit thus far in 1975, 27 above last year's record pace, police said. There were 751 killings in 1973, an all-tune record in this city of 1.5 million that has come to be known as the nation's murder capital. Sayings involving out-of-tow- ners have been rare, and convention officials say business is up. A Wayne State University study cosponsored by the city reveals the typical killer differs little from his victim. The report, covering about 500 murders in 1972, shows: More than 75 per cent of murderers were male; two- thirds of the slayings followed a quarrel with a relative or acquaintance; 63 per cent of the murders were committed with guns, often the inexpensive "Saturday Night Specials"; most of those involved on both sides of the gun were black males, with half of them single and 40 per cent unemployed. "But these conditions are not unique to Detroit," said Dr. G. Marie Wilt, who made the study. "You find them all over the country. The problems are socio-economic." Police statistics show that of the 432 homicides through July of this year, three-quarters were committed with guns and half of the killers knew their victims. Why Detroit? The most popular reasons advanced for the homicide rate — auto assembly line pressure, poverty, and narcotics — are belittled by some experts. Dr, Wilt says Detroit, with a white-black ratio of about 50-50, differs little from American cities with lower murder rates. She cites dope in New York, factories in Pittsburgh and poverty everywhere. Dr. Emanuel Panay, a psychiatrist who has studied violent death says the answer is "simple and obvious. Guns. "In England, if you get mad at someone you choke them with your hands. The aggressor may lose his temper, but he regains it before he kills his victim." Dr. Paney said gun-buying increased sharply following the 1967 riot here in which 43 died. He feels there is an upward spiral which is unstoppable without gun control. Vrons/cfe' folding up in January TEL AVIV (AP) - Raymond Burr, star of the television mystery program "Ironside," says the series will end its eight-year run this January. Burr and co-star Don Galloway were in Israel to attend the opening of the Israel Film Festival on Monday. Burr will spend six days touring Israel where "Ironside," has a large television audience. NEW YORK (AP) — The Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon has received more than $16 million in pledges to fight muscular dystrophy. Lewis, national chairman of the Muscular Dystrophy Associations of America, said people ignored their own economic problems to help fight the neuromuscular disease. "When other people are in trouble, they don't look at their own problems," he said. When the 20-hour-long telethon, broadcast from Las Vegas to 174 stations throughout the country, went off the air at 6:30p.m. Monday, a total of $16,129,213 had been pledged, which beat last year's record of $13.7 million. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Ford plans to be in Philadelphia Thursday for the convening of the Continental Congress as part of the nation's bicentennial celebrations. The President plans to fly to Philadelphia for the ceremony Thursday evening and return to Washington that night, a White House official said on Monday. A presidential spokesman said he did not think Ford would make any statement on amnesty for draft dodgers and deserters while in Philadelphia. In 1776 the Continental Congress met in Philadelphia and declared the 13 American colonies independent. Jefferson firm given contract MEMPHIS, Term. (AP) - A contract has been awarded to Charles Hampton of Jefferson, Tex., to build and lease a new post office at Williford in Sharp County. James Curtis, manager of the Memphis Postal District, said the Texas builder offered the lowest of four bids. The planned is to contain 1,046 square feet of interior floor space and is to be leased to the U.S Postal Service for a basic period of 10 years, with options on 20 additional years. The postal service controls a site at the intersection of Arkansas 58 south and Arkansas 58 east. The contract calls for completion of the building in April 1975. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Ford and President Luis Echeverria of Mexico may meet very soon at the border of the two countries, a White House official says. Presidential spokesman Jerald F. terHorst told reporters on Monday that "a very early meeting on the border" is expected, but gave no date or location. Echeverria has been quoted as saying the meeting was upcoming.

Because if East held the queen of clubs or four hearts to the king or queen the squeeze would not develop. (NEWSI'AI'EK KNTKW'HI.SE ASSN.) Miss America must do without red robe ATLANTIC CITY, N-J. (AP) — The young woman who walks down the Convention Hall ramp as the new Miss America on Saturday night won't have a robe to wear. The new queen will still get a crown and scepter but the traditional red velvet robe trimmed in white fur is being Dispensed with in an effort to Keep pace with the times, said Albert A. Marks Jr., the Pageant's head. "We're eliminating the robe to tell America we are not crowning Queen Elisabeth in foe raMcUe of the 18th Century." Marks told the 50 state <Weens at the pageant's official opening Monday. He said the pageant is "a roeans of promoting some of we better things in the American way of life." He Ukened it to "the Cincerella story, born and reborn again." Some critics claim the pateant casts the contestants as "sex objects" but Marks told the contestants: "If you kids who are articulate, intelligent, lively and good citizens are sex objects, then something is wrong somewhere." A feminist group, the National Organization for Women (NOW), has turned its eastern regional convention to coincide with the pageant this weekend. Without referring to NOW by name, Marks said, "They can do their thing. We will do our thing and never the twain shall meet." . . All the pageant's competition takes place in Convention Hall, Where three nights of preliminaries begin Wednesday.

ByOswald & James Jacoby Here is a rubber bridge hand played at the old Knickerbocker Whist Club long after it had given up whist for contract. The late P. Hal Sims, one of the all-time greats, cashed his high diamonds and led a trump. Charles Lochridge, another all-time great who sat South, won the trick, spread his hand and asked, "I make it, don't I?" Hal folded his cards and said, "Yes, you do." But East wanted to know why Charley didn't have to lose a club trick. Charley's claim was perfectly legal since he did not intend to take any finesses. His plan was to cash his ace ot hearts, lead a trump to dummy, ruff a heart, lead another trump to dummy, ruff a second heart and play out his last trump.
