Thursday, September 19, 1974 MOPE <AKK.) SfAR Dr. Lamb xtra heart beats may not harm By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.t). DEAR DR. LAMB - Will you please explain to me just what a PVB is and how serious they are. About a year ago I was hospitalized quite suddenly after a visit to a doctor for this problem. I was given some medicines which didn't agree with me. And, I had no pain or indication of heart trouble. Finally, 1 was discharged and told to go on living a normal life. Last week I suffered severe pain in my left leg and also pain in my left arm. I began shaking uncontrollably. I called a doctor, and he would not come to the house but advised me to use hot soaks and take some Anacin. This has me terribly upset and worried. Any explanation would be appreciated. I'm 61 years old, a widow and by myself most of the time. Could a bad fright have caused those P V B s? DEAR READER - PVB is an abbreviation for premature ventricular beats, often called extra beats or flip flops that people sometimes feel. You can have them and never feel a thing, either. It is just a beat that conies early (premature) in the natural rhythmic beat of the heart. Many normal people have these without heart disease. If they cause symptoms or occur frequently or with known heart disease then they can be important, otherwise, they are best ignored. That is why your doctor told you to just go on and live a normal life. I doubt they had anything at all to do with your leg and arm pain. However, for anyone who needs medical help and can't get it, don't be dismayed because the doctor doesn't come to the house. If you have a serious problem he would need the facilities of the hospital anyway. The smart WIN AT BRIDGE Plain old simple good play thing to do if it is really an emergency is to take a taxi or an ambulance, depending on how you feel, and go to the hospital emergency room. I don t recommend this unless you can't find a doctor. Ordinarily a doctor will ask a patient to go to the hospital, and he will meet you there, if you have something serious that should have fairly immediate attention. Or, if he can't see you then the hospital staff will do so for him. Emergency rooms are for emergencies, however, and you should only use them for that. Otherwise real emergencies won't receive proper attention because of the overload. And one day you might be the emergency. DEAR DR. LAMB - I recently read in a magazine that both mushrooms and onions counteract cholesterol in your blood. If there any truth in that statement? DEAR READER - I'm afraid not. I do wish it were all that simple. The only thing onions and mushrooms have going for them is that both are low in fat and neither contain any cholesterol. So, it is correct to say that you could use any amounts of these you might wish to eat — in any reasonable quantity — but, I'm afraid they have no medicinal quality. Mushrooms and onions are both low calorie foods and a reasonably high percentage of the calories in mushrooms are protein. My statements on the food values of both are based on food values listed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.

When they get around to playing the dummy, they aren't likely to come up with complicated squeezes and end plays. But when it comes to standard, basic good play they are right there We watched one of them play today's hand. She took the" first diamond and saw that it was up to her to go alter hearts. At least we assume that is what she saw, because she called for dummy's deuce of hearts. Her eight lost to West's queen and a second diamond i v Q ui For Friday.jept. 20,1 974 ARIES (March 21-April 19) Things should work out just as you ve anticipated - provided you do what's necessary to maintain the proper priority TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Set a good example and it will ne easy for you to get others to follow your lead Willing >.ands will help with a task /ou've been stuck with alone GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your presence will be sought by others for activities of a iocial nature You II add zest to the party CANCER (June 21-July 22) This will be a productive day ior y ou You re capable of juggling several situations at the same time and doing a good iob at each LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Something pleasant will occur n the earlier part of the day It will give you cause to cele- Qrate later in the evening VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Conditions are such at this was led.

South let the 10 ride; played a third heart; and made the three heart tricks she needed. Note that if South had called for the 10 of hearts at trick two and East had ducked South would only have been able to take two heart tricks. (NEWSPAPEK ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

Archie W. Crittendett of Dillard said the new IBM 3650 system features 50 hand-held electronic wands at sales counters which read magnetically coded price tags. He said the price tags contain the price of the item, its description and stock data. Here is how a typical transaction would work: A clerk passes the wand reader over the thin magnetic stripe on the price tag. A terminal device, which resembles a cash register, records and prints the information about the item and displays the price on a lighted panel. To complete the purchase, the amount due, including tax, is computed by the terminal, along with the change to be returned. The terminal prints a cash receipt and a journal tape. Crittenden said that the terminal captures such information as merchandise class, size, color and price for inventory control. That information is retained in the company's central computer. "With detailed information about the previous day's sales, we will provide our buyers with sales data five days faster than before," he said. The Incas had no knowledge of the wheel, no draft animals and no beasts of burden other than the llama — strong enough to transport 80-pound loads over Andean trails but too frail to carry a man, National Geographic says.
