Dr. tomb The Idato Free Press The News-Tribune. Wi ·'···sdav, January 29. W75 -., Cxerc/se before meals Ry Lawrence E. Iamb, M,D, DEAR DR.LAMB-I'vejusl ; tome off a successful die! going down to 170 pounds. I'm « five-feet- six. stocky build and a college professor, which makes me somewhat sedentary in habils. I've read your book on fitness and follow y o u r exercise routines. 1 use a stationary bicycle each night to help out about 60 minutes or so. 1 do expensive.-exercises for my ab- 'clomen. ; What is the relation between breathing and exercise? At what point in the exercise is it best to breathe in and out? When, after a meal, is it hest to exercise? Also, what is the biochemistry involved here? Does one increase the usage of calories if he exercises right before a meal? What self tests can one apply to determine the success of abdominal exercises? I've been at this (or more than a year, doing most of your exercises. I have extensive fat around my waist .and do not seem to be'getting nd of it. On the basis of my description would you say that a daily intake of 1,600 to 1,700 calories should stabilize my weight once 1 get to 160 pounds? DEAR READER - You may have still more weight to lose than you realize. I don't think it makes much deference when you breathe d u r i n g y o u r exercises. Whatever is comfortable for you is all that matters. For weight training, it ,is usually recommended I hat you breathe in during the lift and out while returning the weight to H/nfs from Heloise Plunger removes dent in new car Dear Heloisc: I had (he shock of my life when I found my new car with a dent in it. Even though it was not my fault, I cringed at the thought of telling my husband. My neighbor shared a little female secret with me she had used before... (before her husband got home). She suggested I use a plunger (the kind used to un-stop sinks etc.), place it on the dent, and pull with all my might! ! did, and darned if that dent didn't pop out! I don't know U this will always work, but it sure is worth a try (or two) to help keep harmony in the family and reduce those repair bills. Mrs. Judy Gilcrest Honeychild, anything's worth a try when it comes to dents and husbands. I wish I had known this many a time. The auto shop told me it often works! Bless you. Heloise Dear Heloise: I came up with an idea that I though you might like. When decorating my bathroom, I used a colored straw placernal to cover the top of my commode tank. I just cut the placernal in half and placed it on the top of the tank. - It looks beautiful. I have received so many compliments on it. As placemats are inexpensive, I can change colors when the mood hits me. Mrs. Anne Mallard LETTER OF LAUGHTER Dear Heloise: My mother has found a great way of keeping her linen closet clean. She had a daughter ten years ago - ME! Cathy Gazda . * * Dpar Heloise: ;In my home I have two round end tables covered with floor length felt tablecloths that I WIN AT BRIDGE made. Since dusting these became a problem, I tried a damp sponge and brushed in one direction and picked up the dirty lint. It's great! Connie Hammer * * t Dear Heloise: If you like to water paint a lot,' you know how fast and easy it is for your cleaning water to get dirty. 1 use a plastic ice cube tray with about twelve small ice cube sections all filled with water. ' When each section is used, dump your water out and start all over again. This saves a lot of trips to the bathroom or kitchen sink. . S.L.S. A plastic egg carton (the part used to hold the eggs) would serve the same purpose and you could just discard it when you arc finished painting. ·Course, don't use any cleaner but water in it -- turpentine etc., would dissolve the carton. Heloise Dear Heloisc:, ' .Because ijf;^jejrriess:of floury pastry boards or cloths'that are difficult to clean up, I nearly gave up breadmaking. Thank heavens, I thought of my nonstick coated cookie sheet. It's perfect for keading and shaping, the dough never sticks and you can keep on kneading till every speck of flour is well absorbed into the dough. And, best of all, when I bake round loaves, I can cook my bread on the same pan! Laura Locken True. Great. Love! Heloise Dear Heloise: Use empty toilet tissue rolls to put your electrical cords in. They store very neatly and you can mark on each which appliance the cord is for. Bessie M. ting position. You should avoid holding your breath in deep inspiration as you might do during a chin-up. Breath holding can trigger powerful reflexes that lead to fainting or collapse in some people. You should also a v o i d o v e r b r e a t h i n g or breathing loo fast. This induces chemical changes in the body that also lead to fainlness. Exercise before a meal if you are doing strenuous exercise. This is particularly true for heart patients, since digestion alone increases the work of the heart. Fatty foods increase the clumping tendency of the blood and decrease optimal circulatory function. Wail at least two hours after a fairly adequate meal before exercising vigorously. A good walk after a meal, in healthy people, is no strain and is often helpful. Healthy people don't need to sit or lie down for long periods after eating. You will use the same number of calories with the same task whether it is before or after the meal. The best test for abdominal /at is your waistline and Hie amount of fat under the skin. You can tighten up your abdomen with exercise but exer-,, cise won't eliminate abdominal fat. Abdominal fat means you still have a lot of excess fat to lose, and that means more calorie restriction and continued exercise routines. For more infor- ' mation write to me at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019, and ask for the booklet on weight loss. Send 50 cents to cover costs. You'll have to judge yourself how many calories you need after you have eliminated all the significant fat deposits under the skin. In general eat only enough to control your weight and still have an adequate supply of energy. If you are reasonably active I would hope that might be at least 2.000 calorics a day for you.

There is a simple avoidance play lo insure the contract. Soulh leads a spade lo dummy's jack. West can do no belter than take his queen and lead another spade. South discards a club on dummy's jack of spades; cashes the ace of clubs then leads Ihc jack and lets it ride if East plays low. South loses one spade and two diamonds but wins Ihe rubber.
