Friday, June.;28, 1974 Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah CaKf—7 Questions about retaining water LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB — Like so many people I am confused regarding water retention. What is the normal amount a person should retain, and do^s this condition keep excess weight on one attempting to lose weight? Could this cause a loss or gain of pounds over a few days? I am 67. We surely appreciate your columns and have received so much jjielp from them, DEAR READER — All of us retain some water because of gravity; Man is an upright person, and when standing. • water accumul^ites in the legs and lower part of the body. One of the experiments I did to study weightlessness was to put healthy young men to bed and stury the change in their weight and water. It was common for these young men to lose three to five pounds in 24 'hours, and it was all water loss. We demonstrated this by measuring the amount of urine they passed and the amount of fluid they drank. So, the ahswer to youi; question about the possibility of losing several pounds of Avater in a few days is yes. Sheinwoldon bridge Ancient rules are poor guides The human brain is a mar- veIou,s thing. It starts working the moment you are bom and stops only when you are in the middle of a grand slani. Perhaps that accounts for the way this hand was played. North dealer Both sides vulnerable NORTH • AKJ 10532 . <5 8 6 2 <> J8 ' • 8 . ' EAST • 7 C> 9 7 5 3 ,.

Translated from Victorian English, this means: Always finesse for the queen when yoii- have eight cards in a suit; but never finesse tor the queen when you have nine cards. Happy to have a rule to follow, declarer led out the ace and king of spades. The qiieen failed to drop, and South eventually gave up a club trick. Correct Play The correct play is to cash one top spade just in case the queen happens to drop singleton. When nothing, startling happens. South leads out his top cards in the red suits. , As it happens. West shows up with only two cards in each red , suit. What's more, West has to discard four clubs on declarer's top cards. When South then cashes his ace of clubs, West must follow with the jack of clubs. That;leaves West with only-two cards. , If West is a genius at deceptive play, he may still have the nine of clubs and one small spade. But if West is the average good bridge player, his club plays will be honest, and his last two cards will be the miSsing two spades. Any declarer worthy of his salt would take the spade finesse and make the grapd slam. Daily Question Partner opens with one heart, and the next player passes. You hold: Spades A K J 10 5 3 2, Hearts 8 6 2, Diamonds J 8, Qubs 8. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid one spade. You are not quite strong enough for a jump to two spades, but you are far too strong for any jH-e-emptive jum^ in spades. Other things affect the amount of body water, too. Remember that over half of your body weight is water, under normal circumstances. We are not instant dried humans. A good physical workout with sweating can cause a person to lose 10 pounds. But, don't get excited over that, it all comes back just as soon as the thirst and salt requirements are met. It is not a loss of pounds of fat at all. It is common for the body to fluctuate as much as five pounds in relation to watiet-' intake, food intake, heat, exercise and other environmental factbrs. That is why it is so easy to llose the first five pounds on a diet while the rest is harder. Many of the diet fads IH-omoted indiscriminately to the public tiakc advantage of the easy loss of waterinitially. Most of these people promoting these thing^-taiow the truth; they just waiit your money. The low- carbohydrate diet fads are in this ballpark. When you eliminate carbohydrates drastically, the kidney eliminates more . salt than normal and with it goes about five pounds of qormal body water. So, you are delighted when you get on the scale and see how much you have lost. But, it won't last, either, and^ unless you continue to restrict your calories or significantly increase your physical activity to use calories, the water and the weight will return. Even with well-planned, good weight-reducing programs, the body water is a factor. There may be some iiutial loss as the excess fat is broken down and used for energy. CHP commends UPD for crash luction Cal Health Dato prexy Hillside dinner speaker CHP officers will be out in force for Fourth "It's Going to Take More than Good Patient Care for Hospitals to Stay 'Good Guys'" is the title of the talk by William J. Warhurst, president of the California Health Data Corporation, at the annual Hillside Community Hospital of Ukiah dinner, Monday, July 1, House of Gamer.

Also attending the dinner will be the Community Advisory- Council and other business and professional leaders in the community. "This is a controversial subject," said M.R. Berman, chairman of the board, in announcing the dinner, "but I believe that it is essential to have someone of , Mr. Warhurst's stature come and WILLIAM WARHURST discuss'.with us the influences .and stresses on hospitals today." Warhurst was vice-president; of Blue Cross of Northern California for a number of ye&rs before becoming prlesidenr of the California Health Data Corporation (CHDC) on May 1, 1974.

Four days of vacationing and fun for most. For some, pain, suffering, and death as a result of a traffic accident. This comment was made by Capt. Hays Hickey, Ukiah area commander, as the Fourth of July holiday period approaches. The holidiiy period this year extends from Wednesday, jujy 3, to Sunday, July 7. "We anticipate that most of the motoring public on our highways will exercise their responsibility to drive safely and obey the traffic laws. "To those who seem to forget this responsibility, all our available traffic officers will be working to remind them. " "Again, our efforts will be directed towards the drinldhg: driver and other accident causing violations," Hickey said.
