•ff Tuesday, October 29, 1974 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Dr. Lamb Nervous condition caused illness LR policemen plan Television LOOS i » .. -^ ' * ' " ~ *^F ' no change in guns By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB *• I have had a nervous stomach since World War II which resulted in a duodenal ulcer. The ulcer perforated and I had a sub-total gastrectomy in 1964. I still have a dumping syndrome. Two years ago I had a pulmonary attack and was hospitalized for 30 days. The diagnosis was emphysema and chronic bronchitis. This December I developed a swollen stomach and hemorrhoids. The swelling was diagnosed as "aero- phagia. 1 It continues, at times more pronounced than usual. I think my lack of breathing, due to emphysema and chronic bronchitis, is made worse by the aero- phagia, and I feel close to' suffocation, which is terrifying. I believe my nervous condition is increased to the F oint of extreme hysteria and am fearful, not only for myself but also for anyone I am in contact with. Will you please advise me as to my suspicions and what course to follow? DEAR READER - Starting from the beginning for pur other readers, the dumping syndrome is a complication of surgically removing much of the stomach. Since the normal storage action of the stomach is impossible, large amounts of completely undigested foods are dumped immediately into the small intestine. Foods are normally predigested in the stomach into a liquid or at least semisolid state. The stomach, by controlling how much food passes into the intestine for absorption, even affects such functions as blood sugar level. It's important in your case because it may make the accumulation of gas in the abdomen more likely and more severe. Aerophagia means swallowing air. Most of us do it to some extent. When you are nervous it happens more often, and can become a habit. I'm not as impressed with this as I was in my younger WIN AT BRIDGE in medicine. Then we didnt know about the gas- producing effects of lactose in milk. I suspect that many people, but certainly not all, diagnosed as "aerophagia,'' really have gas problems the doctor has not solved. You are right about the breathing problem. When the lungs are already compromised, anything that distends the abdomen will make matters worse. Why? Because you enlarge the chest cage to draw air in by moving the diaphragm downward. If your abdomen is distended with fluid, gas or fat, your diaphragm cannot move down much and you can't breathe as much as you should. In extreme conditions this results in a feeling of suffocation. And, it is a terrifying feeling. For the best lung function a person should avoid abdominal obesity and maintain good posture so the chest cage is able to move normally. In emphysema the chest cage or ribs sometimes can t move much. Now what should you do? You should do everything possible to avoid accumulation of gas. You might try eliminating all milk and milk products, just in case you have the lactose problem. You should eliminate coffee, tea, colas to eliminate caffeine. Avoid all soda drinks and any foods you know to be gas formers. In many people that means limiting starchy vegetables, too. I presume you are not smoking. If you are you must , quit at once. Incidentally, stopping the caffeine drinks may help your nervousness. Make a conscious effort not to swallow air and try to eliminate causes for nervousness if you can. The rest will need help from your doctor. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019.

Pass West looked at dummy's five diamonds and saw that once trumps were pulled they would represent five tricks to declarer. He saw that if he started to give away diamond tricks right off the bat he might kill most of the diamond suit. He led his jack of diamonds! South was in dummy and has his choice of any number of ways to go after 10 tricks. All these ways had one thing in common. They werenl going to work. All West had to do was to remember to lead a second diamond when he next got in the lead. The bidding has been: West North East 1? Pass By Oswald & James Jacoby The bidding of today's hand was excellent. North saw no point in overcalling at the two level with his five- card minor suit. He bid only two diamonds after his partner reopened the bidding with a takeout double. When South bid two hearts, North was justified in jumping to game. Good bidding doesn't always show a profit. It didn't this time because West came up with a killing defense. His king of spades held the first trick. East's four spot was the lowest missing spade so We.st assumed his partner held three spades. P ass Pass ** 2N - T - Pass Pass 29 South 2* LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Police Chief Gale P. Weeks says the Little Rock Police Department has no plans to use pistols larger than the .38-caliber pistols its officers now use. Many police departments have issued larger and larger pistols to push down the crime rate. The Little Rock policemen are required to use the hollow point bullet, which recently has become the target of criticism by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups. The Arkansas affiliate of the ACLU said in a statement it was "opposed to the shooting of unconvicted criminal suspects with any kind of bullet, except inself-defense.. ." The group said it "particularly condemns as peculiarly brutal the use of hollow point bullets by police." Those seeking to outlaw the use of hollow point bullets have called them cruel and inhumane and have said the soft- nose ammunition was outlawed for military use by the Geneva Convention. "I'm sorry to say it," Weeks said, "but there's just no such thing as a humane bullet. Bullets, and guns, too, were designed for only one thing — to kill." Ernie Sparks, a retired military man recognized in sporting circles as an expert on guns, said, "What difference does it make whether it's humane or not? There's only one ' degree of dead." The major difference between hollow point bullets and full- jacketed ammunition is that the soft-lead nose on the hollow point has an empty core that causes the bullet to mushroom on impact. Those seeking to outlaw the hollow point for law enforcement use say the mushroom effect causes the bullet to make a larger hole and tear muscles and cartilage more easily, causing more damage to the person who has been shot. Policemen and civilian weapons experts disagree with that view and said in many instances it was safe. Sparks said the soft nose on the bullet gives it little penetrating power. "This gives the innocent bystander more protection," he said. "A hollow point bullet won't completely go through a person. Fully jacketed rounds can go completely through a person and hit somebody else." The soft-lead bullet also travels more slowly. "If a policeman misses his target, a hollow point won't hit some little grandmother three blocks away," he said. "A hardball round might." The policemen like the hollow-point bullet because it provides more "stopping power" than does the standard round. "If I'm in a gun battle with somebody," one officer said, '1 want him to go down the first time he's hit. I don't want him to keep shooting after I've hit him." Sparks and others also questioned the mushrooming capabilities of the hollow point bullet when fired from the policemen's pistols. Farm Union opposed to Amendment LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Board of Directors of the Arkansas Farmers Union says it is bitterly opposed to the proposed Amendment 57 to the state Constitutionm The measure would allow the state legislature to set interest rate ceilings above the current 10 per cent constitutional limit. Bill McCarty, president of the Farmers Union, said that, if approved, the measure would raise prices for those who can least afford it. Elton P. Hall TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Elton P. Hall, 61, publisher of the Traverse City Record-Eagle and vice president of Ottaway Newspapers, Inc., died Monday of a heart attack. He joined the Ottaway group in 1937.

Jacksonville police charge Missouri man with murder JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Jacksonville police charged an Independence, Mo., man, Glenn Martin Green, 21, with first-degree murder in the death of an 18-year-old woman Monday. Authorities found the woman's partially decomposed and badly beaten body Sunday night in the Bayou Meto about 15 miles west of Lonoke. The woman's identity was being withheld pending notification of her relatives. Lonoke County Sheriff Donald Brumett said the woman was the daughter of a retired Air Force officer. Sgt. Jack Livengood, public information officer for the Jacksonville Police Department, said Green was interrogated Sunday after a joint in- vestigation by Jacksonville and Air Force police placed him at Little Rock Air Force Base's enlisted men's barracks early Oct. 22, the place and time the woman was last seen alive. Jacksonville police had received a missing person's report on the woman last Saturday. Livengood said evidence found in Green's car and the interrogation led to the discovery of the woman's body. xuxedo" is an Indian word describing the foot-pads of wolves.
