T Page 6 The Sulina Journal — Sunday, November 22,1961 Jogger's 'h/gh' explained Mayor makes Christmas list Dear Dr. Donohue: My jugging friend keeps telling me about the tremendous high he gets while doing his thing. He tells me he feels as though he is floating at these times and feels worry-free. Is he hooked on something besides jogging? — B.K. Yes, he may be hooked on endorphins (en-DOOR-fins). I better explain that statement. The brain is always sending out messages to itself with good or bad news. One of the good messages is one that says to forget pain. The messenger is an endorphin, which is a little protein that acts like morphine (the medical pain-killer). Exercise is thought to increase the levels of endorphins in the brain, and that can account for your friend's high. It is a little too soon to be absolutely sure about all this, but at least it is one explanation for. the Jogger's feeling of well-being. And it may even explain why some joggers begin to feel depressed when they cannot run for a few days. The floating feeling he mentions is also reported by some track runners after overcoming what should normally be a level of exhaustion in a distance race. & 1r -Cr Dear Dr. Donohue: This is my last try in contacting you before I become convinced that you're but a figment of the editor's imagination and don't really exist. As an avid swimmer, I was curious as to which muscles are used in swimming. — S.H. Many muscles are used in dr. donohue to your good health swimming, but the upper arm and shoulder muscles supply 85 percent of the power in pushing and pulling you through the water. Other muscles in the hip and thigh are used to a lesser extent. Specific muscles used may vary somewhat with the strokes involved. You can see this easily by comparing the crawl and butterfly strokes. If you want to be technical, the chief swimming muscles are the pectoralis major and minor (on the chest), the la- tissimus dorsi (on the back) and the deltoid and rhomboids (on the shoulder). Swimming is not just a utilizer of muscle power. It is a great aerobic conditioner, the kind of exercise that benefits the heart and lungs. And it is also a good way to burn stored calories (fat). An easy recreational swim burns 300 to 400 calories an hour. Very competitive swimming can burn 800 an hour. Finally, swimming is good for many otherwise incapacitated persons (arthritics, for example) because it places minimum stress on the weight- bearing joints while permitting easy movement. •tr -tr TV Dear Dr. Donohue: I have a booklet on rope jumping. It says that if you jump 120-140 turns in a minute you will burn about 760 calories. This must be wrong or more people would be trying to lose weight this way. Did the company make a mistake? — P.L. You can burn 760 calories in one hour maybe, but not in one minute. I don't know of any exercise that would do that. Anywhere from nine to 12 calories per minute are burned depending on many things, one being the speed with which you jump. Keep up the Jumping. You are giving your heart a good workout while losing the calories. TV -tr * Dear Dr. Donohue: Can you tell me about the Borg Scale as opposed to pulse-taking to measure heart rate? — M.G. Doctor Borg was dissatisfied with pulse-taking as a practical method for judging how hard exercise is. So he devised a scale based on how the body "feels" about what it is doing. He calls this "perceived exertion." Perceived exertion while the body is at rest is given a rating of six in the Borg Scale. The rating with very, very exhausting work is a 20. You then determine actual heart rates (pulse) bu multiplying each rating by 10. Multiply the Borg rest rating (6) by 10 and you get a heart rate of 60. Multiply the very exhausting activity rating (20) by 10 and you get a heart SAop Early in Sa/ina's Mos£ Colorful Gift Stoop Featuring Gifts "Designed For Giving". Gifts Wrapped In Hallmark Paper.

Dr. Borg and many others feel you can in this way estimate the intensity of exercise accurately without having to rely on taking of pulse rates and breath count. It sounds sensible, but if you have a condition that requires you to keep your heart rate down, it is best to rely on the old p'ulse-taking method. tr tr -fr Dear Dr. Donohue: With diets being so popular today, I wondered if there was one appropriate for a woman in menopause. Is there one? — Mrs. R.R. There are no diets or diet restrictions that will help avoid the symptoms of menopause. Arthritis sufferers can be helped. For a copy of the booklet, "How You Can Control Arthritis," which discusses many type of arthritis and related joint diseases as well as effective treatments and medications, write to Dr. Donohue, Box 19620, Irvine, Calif. 92714. Enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 50 cents. Dr. Donohue welcomes reader mail but regrets that, due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to answer individual letters. Readers' questions are incorporated in his column whenever possible. LINCOLN, Neb. (UPI) - Mayor Helen Boosalis has made her list and checked it twice. Now she's passing it out to businesses and anyone who will take a look at it, hoping the city will get some nice Christmas presents. The list is actually a 40-page catalog full of gift ideas in a variety of price ranges for people who are willing to help the city in its time of need. The ideas range from a $24,000 forklift to eight SWAT team baseball caps at $25 to flourescent lights at $150 and a jogging path at $800. A new fire engine for up $75,000 is also on the list Mrs. Boosalis said with an increasing strain being put on the city budget, "We certainly need the help of the private sector." immrmimfmmrmirmmmini™ ORGANS Do you need another employe?
