Tuesday, October 8, 1974 (AKK,) STAR t*«g« Dr. Television Loos Colon doesn't absorb food By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR Dft. LAMB - A few months ago I had about a foot of ftiy colon removed. My doctor told me that this wouldn't present any problems, as I had considerably more.than needed. He did mention that 1 might be able to eat more. My problem is that although my eating habits haye remained unchanged, 1 keep gaining weight. I have never had a weight problem and can't understand what's happening now. I would appreciate it if you would tell me if there could be any connection between the surgery and the gain in weight. Also, how long should an incision such as this remain tender and itchy? DEAR READER - I'm not sure why your doctor thought you could eat more. The colon has nothing to do with the absorption of food or calories. That is all accomplished in the small intestine and mostly in the first few feet near the stomach. The colon serves to reabsorb water. If you had the colon and part of the small intestine removed or if the operation caused you to have an overactive small intestine preventing normal absorption, then it might. You may have heard of operations to prevent obesity. They bypass or detour a large section of the small intestine (not the large intestine). And, they frequently cause problems. I suspect that the reason for your weight gain is lack of physical activity after surgery. I note your statement about the incision being tender. If you can become more active perhaps you will not continue to have a weight problem. Some people have tender incisions for months and others have no problems even within a few weeks. You should ask your surgeon about it. DEAR DR. LAMB - I've enjoyed eating raw ground beef ever since I can remem- ber. Several people have told me that it is harmful lo my health, and I can pick up diseases that way. So far 1 am quite healthy, but 1 am beginning to worry that my friends may be right. Could you please set me straight on this? I also enjoy eating raw potatoes, peas, cabbage and other raw vegetables. DEAR READER - I used lo think eating raw ground beef was okay. I dorPt any more. Ideally you should be gelling meat from healthy animals, and it shouldn't be a problem. But it just doesn't work out that way. Cooking is the one way mankind has been able to survive all the germ infested foods he has eaten throughout history. Tea, for instance, provides germ-free water to many parts of the world because the bad water is boiled in the process. Pork is particularly likely to be infested with trichinosis. And, in the marketplace the same meat grinder that grinds pork E roducts may then grind eef. Then some so-called ground beef may contain some raw pork. If you want to be sure you have ground beef without contamination with pork, I'd suggest buying good beef and then grinding it at home. So, I think all meat you eat should be properly cooked, including beef. Vegetables are another matter. Just be sure they are clean. Well cleaned vegetables are often better food raw than cooked. In some parts of the world it is advisable to wash the vegetables and fruit with a suitable disinfectant then wash them in water adequately. This is particularly true if human fertilizer is used.

West shows out on the second diamond lead and third club lead. . , South cashes one high heart and comes* back to his own hand with the king of spades. East shows out and South knows that West started with six spades and four hearts. South can now claim the grand slam because when he cashes the last club and diamond, West will have to discard down to one heart and the jack of spades. The heart queen will drop wherever it is. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) By Oswald & James Jacoby It really doesn't matter if South is playing three, six or seven notrump. That is, it doesn't matter to the man interested only in good technical play. To the man interested in big swings, the play becomes really important when the contract is seven. So we have had North bid the grand slam. South counts 12 top tricks. At first glance it appears that the best play for the grand slam is to take a heart finesse. Now. if you look at the East-West hands you will see that the finesse is going to lose, but if South just plays dummy's ace and king the queen will drop. .

Winds rip Carolina coast By The Associated Press Small craft advisories were in effect for most of the southern Atlantic Coast today as gale force winds ripped North Carolina coastal areas. Winds up to 40 miles per hour, spinoffs from a storm system off the Carolinas, combined with tides two to four feet above normal to cause some beach erosion. A large fair weather system centered over the middle Mississippi Valley held temperatures below normal for most of the nation east of the Rockies. Lubbock, Tex., had its lowest afternoon temperature on record for an Oct.7 with 53 degrees Monday. Rain mixed with snow fell in northern Minnesota overnight, and most of the upper Great Lakes had cloudy skies and temperatures in the 30s. Scattered showers and thundershowers persisted in Central and Southern California, Southern Nevada and Southern Arizona, and from Central Kansas through Oklahoma into the Lower Mississippi Valley. Overnight temperatures in the 40s and 50s were common, with readings in the 30s extending from the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes into New England. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 25 at Watertown, N.Y., to 79 at Blythe and Needles, Calif. The largest record king crab had a leg spread of just under five feet and a weight of 24^ pounds; specimens three feet across and weighing 10 pounds are common.

Chairman William L. Hun- naif, D-Mo., said the subcommittee "will make a decision one way or the other (this) afternoon and announce It." He said Watergate Special Prose- nuor Leon Jaworski had expressed concern over pre trial publicity from the Ford appear* anco. Rep. Wiley Mnyne, R-Iowa, said he was the only member thai strongly objected to the postponement at a closed-door subcommittee meeting Monday. He said that although no vote was taken to measure sentiment then, several other members argued Ford's appearance should be postponed until the following Thursday if the jury has not been picked and sequestered. The comet Kohoutek disappointed observers last winter by not being as brightly visible as anticipated. But it provided a wealth of information that delighted scientists, reports the National Geographic. Two new compounds found in Kohoutek may help determine how far out in space comets are formed.

Sirica said good progress was being made in selecting a panel from which the final 12 jurors and 6 alternates will be drawn. He said he hoped to seat the jury by the end of the week. But the prosecution suggested an easing of requirements to speed the procedure even further, indicating indirectly that there is difficulty in finding an unbiased jury in the much-pub-, lized case. f In a memorandum, the gov* eminent suggested that individ- uals "casual 1 * optoloti* ffligM be to* cepiable.
