PAUL DONOHUE North America Syndicate Dear Dr. Donohue: I see where a treadmill is the best way to exercise. Unfortunately, I don't have one, but I do have A a rowing machine. Should I put the rowing machine in my wife's next garage sale, or stick with it? — B.T. Dear B.T.: I've seen lots of both in garage sales, but in many ways, the rowing machine seems to offer the better answer for ^ total body fitness. * With the treadmill, besides the heart workout, you're getting mostly leg exercise. With the rowing machine you're exercising arms, back and abdominal muscles along with legs and heart muscles. And you get it all ,in a single workout. Don't get me wrong. Nothing wrong with treadmills, I own one myself. But were I to have a garage sale and you came, the chances are better of seeing my treadmill than my rowing machine. Keep in mind that rowing machines can offer pretty intense exercise, so they're not for everyone. But if you can manage it, and your doctor has no problem with it, then go for it. .Dear Dr. Donohue: Will you HALLOWEEN T|PS FROM G A R F I E L 9 please explain for me what a groin pull is? The team doc offers little information. — B.R. Dear B.R.: Let's locate the area first. The groin is the upper inner part of the thigh, where it meets the abdomen. That's where the adductor muscles reside. The adductors exert an inward pull to the legs when running, and are in play both when you run ahead or suddenly change of direction. A pulled muscle is strained, with some fibers torn. The adductors are frequent sites of muscle pulls, frequently described as "groin pulls." It takes time to heal a pulled groin muscle, just how long depending on the number of fibers torn and how extensively. Want to avoid future pulls? Here's an exercise to do once your present groin situation stabilizes: Sit on the ground with your heels touching, a sort of lotus position. With the heels touching, the knees will tend to stay off the ground. Put a little pressure on the knees with your hands until you sense muscle resistance. Hold for 15 seconds and do as many stretches as you can manage comfortably. Dear Dr. Donohue: I hurt my leg, nothing serious, but the doctor wants me to put running on hold. He does suggest deep-water running as therapy, however. Would it do any good? Won't the water buoy up the body, thus negating efficiency? — H.H.F. Dear H.H.F.: Deep-water running might be the thing for you. Even people who are not recovering from leg injury can benefit from it. The exercise is best done in the deep end of a swimming pool. Wear a flotation belt to keep your head above the surface. Then run, just as you would were your feet planted on dry land. The buoyancy takes the stress off your legs, and therein lies its value for you in your injured state. The exercise won't hurt the leg, but it will permit aerobic conditioning.

Santa Fe HELOISE King Features Ribbons, yarn pose danger to all felines Dear Heloise: I am the owner of a young (2 years old) cat named Kasper. I adopted him at the Humane Society. I read numerous books on how to take care of a cat and also watched a video prior to adopting him, but I was never informed of the danger of yarn or ribbon that you use to wrap gifts. One day my cat was having a grand time playing with a gift we had wrapped for a birthday party. It had all kinds of ribbons dangling from it. Not aware of its danger, we allowed him to continue playing 'with it. We left the room, but when we returned we discovered the ribbon was missing and, worse than that, the cat may have eaten it! Two days later, the cat's life was in danger. He had some serious medical complications in his digestive tract and was not expected to survive the operation. Unfortunately, Kasper had to undergo two serious operations only because we were not aware of this danger. I am 11 years old and I pay for all of Rasper's medical expenses, food and litter. I pour all of my heart into my cat, and all of my allowance! Thanks to Dr. Keene, Rasper's life was spared. In the future, I will protect Rasper with all of my might. I'm doing my part to educate the public of the dangers of allowing your furry loved ones to play with ribbons and yarn. — Rristen N. Blaney, Tampa, Fla. Dear Kristen: We're so happy Rasper survived! So many pet owners have written about their pets choking on shoelaces, strings, yarn, etc. It's amazing how many household items can be fatal to a pet. You're a very responsible and loving pet owner and your letter is important for all pet owners to read. Thanks for writing. — Hugs, Heloise f Dear Heloise: The bottom bed- sheet will stay smooth and in place even on the new mattresses that are 7 inches high. Use an old suspender and attach the gripper to the bottom corner of the sheet, then run the suspender under the mattress. Reach for the other gripper and attach to the opposite corner sheet. The sheet will stay in place. Sweet dreams. — Lueann Croes, New Richmond, Wis. Dear Lueann: I tried your hint using my husband's old suspenders. It worked great on full- and queen-size beds but didn't quite go across our king-size bed. The sheet was pulled nice and tight and did stay in place. — Heloise P.S. Don't tell David!
