WIN AT BRIDGE Prof's play startles student Television Logs Friday 11:55 NBC News 4-6 Dick;Vari Dyke tx-agnet News 5 7. 11-12 By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - A relative of mine was put in the hospital complaining of a heaviness on the left side of the chest, and she had numbness in her fingers and arm. After tests were made of the heart, stomach and chest, the results showed she had blood clots in her lungs. Can you explain how this came about? We have heard about getting blood clots after an operation but never without a reason. DEAR READER - Spontaneous occurrence of blood clots is rather uncommon but it occurs. A person may develop a clot or inflammation of the veins in the legs or even in the pelvic region, and the clot may jar loose and pass through the heart to the I""? 8 - , , i . The danger of a loose clot going to the lungs is the reason doctors are usually very careful with a patient who has a clot in the leg veins or an inflammation of the veins, as in the case of ex-President Nixon. . , This problem can develop in active persons as well as inactive persons. It is more apt to occur in the legs if the venous drainage of the legs is slowed. This can occur with constricting wearing apparel. It may occur with sitting too long with pressure on the back of the thighs, as can occur in long airplane rides. That is one reason I recommend getting up and stirring around a little if you are going to be traveling for a long time. It occurs in pregnancy, in part because of the pressure on the veins from the pregnant uterus. And, clots in the legs may occur for no good reason at all. A loose clot tends to go to the lungs because the clot forms in the veins. The veins all drain to the right side of the heart, and the blood is all pumped from the right heart to the lungs. The clot cant get through the lungs to go on to the left side of the heart and out into the arteries. Clots that cause strokes commonly originate in the left side of the heart and not in the veins. The clot in the lung is called a pulmonary embolism. It resembles a heart attack, just as you have described it. The doctors need tests, including a heart tracing, blood tests, and sometimes special X-ray tests to determine what the problem really is. Sudden onset of chest pain and breathlessness (often extreme) are two common features of a pulmonary embolism. DEAR DR. LAMB - Would you advise all adults not to drink milk? Is it true that only children need milk? You may guess I like milk and want to continue drinking it. My weight, blood pressure and cholesterol are no problem. Please advise us, as we are a milk-drinking Senior Citizen group. DEAR READER - I prefer that everyone get about a quart of milk a day or its equivalent as cottage cheese or buttermilk, or a milk substitute. We all need calcium, and a calcium deficiency can increase the chances of having soft bones with a tendency for fractures to occur in later years. For those who have high cholesterol or other problems, they can use fortified skim milk and uncreamed cottage cheese. The nonfat dry milk powder for cooking is excellent for protein and calcium. You don't have to drink the milk to get your quota. It can be used in desserts, sauces, and any number of prepared foods. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on cholesterol, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Cholesterol" booklet.

How could that play be right? Dummy's king of clubs hit the table next. West dropped the 10. The Professor led the jack and let it ride after East played low. The student's horrified look turned to one of awe when he saw that the Professor was going to make five club tricks instead of the four and wind up with an oyertrick. "How did you know the heart finesse would lose? Why did you play clubs so peculiarly?" the student asked. "I didn't know about the heart finesse," was the reply. "I really didn't care. The real danger to the hand was that East would gain the lead and play a spade. I had two spade stoppers against a spade lead by West but only one against a spade lead by East. Furthermore, I didn t want to let East get in with a club if I could possibly help it. When I let the jack of clubs ride I didn't mind if it lost to the queen. I would be sure of nine tricks in any event." The bidding has been: Some people believe that children who drink from ivy- wood cups will be cured of whooping cough.

New satellite will monitor wheat fields WASHINGTON (AP) Wheat fields in a huge area of North America will be watched by a new U.S. satellite next year as part of a project aimed at keeping closer tabs on the world's food supply. The project will involve the government's second Earth Resources Satellite, ERTS-B, to be launched in January, the Agriculture Department said Wednesday. The crop watching portion is called the Large Area Crop Inventory Experiment or LACIE. "Wheat will be the test crop for this experiment " the department said. "At the outset, LACIE, which will continue over several growing seasons, will concentrate on a major wheat-producing region such as the Great Plains." The satellite survey was announced earlier this week by Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger who told the World Food Conference in Rome that it would be part of a new scientific endeavor to help determine global food situations. Department officials said if the experiment is successful its techniques will be expanded to other areas of the world and be included in making routine forecasts of U.S. crop production. -, 0 /v/ 74 1^^^ a ,05 224 i e9l4l ia *nV ?°* D i ttO*t v£ ^Ull» 0 ' \ * * TS r^..
