Lawrence E. Lamb DEAR DR. LAMB — I read your article on angiograms and coronary catheterization, and I was particularly interested because I have had this procedure done. It wasn't a very comfortable feeling and it took a long time. Anyway, the doctors were satisfied with my X rays and told me I have idiopalhic h y p e r t r o p h i c subaortic stenosis. Of course, the doctor went on to explain what each word meant but I've forgotten and would like for you to explain. How dangerous is this desease? DEAR READER — Idiopathic is a fancy medical word that we doctors use to say we don't know what causes the problem. It sounds a lot better than saying I don't know. Hyper means i excessive and trophic means growth ; thus excessive growth or overgrowth. Subaortic means underneath the aortic valve which is the main valve controlling the outflow of blood from the main left pumping chamber of the heart into the giant aortic artery that carries blood to the entire body except the lungs. Stenosis means to occlude or obstruct, so the entire term really means an obstruction or occlusion of the region just beneath the aortic valve caused by an overgrowth of tissue. The reason for the overgrowth of tissue isn't k n o w n , so it's called medical terras The main effect of this problrm is to obstruct the otitltow of blood from the left siide of the heart to the body. The muscular left heart chamber has to pump harder to force the blood past this narrow opening or obstruction. For tljis reason the muscle of the loft heart chamber enlarges causinig cardiac enlargement from simple work. If the heart muscle has to work to hard and there is not enough circulation to to the heart muscle itself, then a person Mirror of your mind By JOHN CONWELL can have heart pain or anginal pain similar to that caused by fatty desposits in the arteries to the heart musjle. Individuals with this complicating problem do get relief from nitroglycerin tablets un-'er the tongue. Depending on the over-all heart status and the health o f the individual, and depending on the question of whether the overgrowth of tissue will grow back again or not, some Individuals with this problem can have heart surgery and the overgrowth material removed. . These kinds of decisions have to be made on an individual basis. Considering the type of evaluation you have had, I'm certain your doctor is aware'' of these various possibilities and will be able to give you the best possible advice on what you should do. Here's more on cancer and food. Dr. Robert A. Good, one of the world's leading immunologists, reports that experimental studies in animals and human populations show that if you decrease the level of protein in the diet you can decrease the incidence of cancer; But, if you go too far and have a protein deficiency, you are more susceptible to cancer. It looks like there's an optimal amount of protein in the diet and defining this optimal amount may be difficult. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph.

The father probably understands what is going through his son's mind in situations that the father remembers cxperi; nc i;g when he was his son's age. Sometimes a father in an outburst will make an uncomplimentary remark ;ib:mt his son's behaviour in a crisis.

An in depth class in prnting and drawing for students 10-18 years of n»e will be conducted by a young arti-t-teaeher on Saturday By HELEN HENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK — (NEA) — The theme for the Howard Wolf fashion collection for fall and winter '72 is "total individuality," said Bill Becker, president of the firm. Their designers definitely achieved this aim. One of the highlights of the collection is that a whole coordinated wardrobe emerges with a designer look and, best of all, at commonsense prices. This is the result of the careful attention paid to detail i n the creating and manufacturing of the clothes. Another plus is the all-seasons look of the line. Becker refers to the collection as "now and then" clothes. "There is no time of year during which they can't be worn." The market has not responded to the consumers' needs, Becker believes. "The manufacturers are waiting for something to happen," he said. "But nothing happens until you offer something. "In July-August," he continued, "the market doesn't have summer clothes and fall clothes just aren't feasible. We design a complete line for that time of year because we feel it is our responsibility. And, amazingly, when the market goes to hell in August, these clothes sell like crazy." Becker feels that knits are Important but that they must have more design than they now have. "It's not enough just to show a comfortable knit," he said. He doesn't believe that pants are dead as a fashion for women. "The market may say that." he added, "but the public doesn't say that at all." This latest collection Is chock full of luxurious, casually elegant designs with just the right look for today's life style. Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, August ;iO, 1U72 A-;.' The grower's art A lovelier you Color keys flattery By MAKY SUE MILLER « Colors are a travelogue of hilltop America on a golden autumn day. The earth colors, deep browns and russets, mingle with flashes of the frost-nipped red and yellow of oak and maple leaves. The lush green of spruce and pine backgrounds valley of drying grain. Then there's the bright of the sky and the migrating mallards, the warmth of the late plums and roses. All those shades combine with each other and with black, white cloud gray — in the fabrics themselves, or via trims and accessories. Whatever you elect to wear, it obvious'y will not lack eye appeal. It will enhance your individual loveliness as well, if it compliments your skin tone. As a guide to the just- right choices, new shades and feminine skin tones are matched on this chart: BRUNET SKIN. True red; antique gold; bottle and moss green; brilliant blue; red plum and shocking pink; black with white; gray flannel gray; camel; russet, darkest brown; croamy white. BLOND SKIN. Burgundy red and crush of roses; blue spruce and black pine. French blues, winter navy; ultraviolet and blue plum; jet black; silver gray; oatmeal and pearly browns; snowy white. FLORID SKIN. Light to dark brown, oatmeal, sand; slate gray; raven black; oyster white; blue spruce and blackened greens; blue violet; all blues on fall palette. THE EYES OF YOUTH You are not lost to youthful beauty because of dark circles, pufiincss, or wrinkles around the eyes. These problems can be brought under control by proper skin care, cosmetic applications, health habits and facial exp r e s s i o n s . Methods are detailed in my leaflet, THE EYES OF YOUTH. To obtain your copy, write Mary Sue Miller in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, enclosing 15 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. BY FUED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist To caller from last week: Send 25 cents for catalog of wildflowers to Mincemoyer Nursery, Dept. N.A.-l. County Lane Road, Jackson, N.J., 08527. Well, I guess the worst of the summer heat is over now, and fall flowers take a new lease on life. 'Mums should grow fast now, and a little feeding will improve the blooms. Grass sure is picking up, and now iis a good time to handweed the worst of the crabgrass out of the lawn and sow some bluegrass seed in bacre spots. Just sow the seed and do not water t. Time to transplant peonies now, also dayliillies and Iriis. They should take hold good now before winter. Evergreens transplanted now and watered if needed will make new roots before winter. Someday we will all learn thai fall is the best time to transplant many things. Plants are fresh dug and are superior to cold storage plants. But you have to go to a nursery to get them, but after all, that is the place to buy these plants. Evergreens will have a natural ball of soil on them instead of a 'made' ball. Fall garden 'stuff will make rapid growth from now on, but plants may need a little thinning out for better result I have a Princess tree which has made a ten one-half foot growth this summer and still growing. Some leaves are 18 inches across. My six Italian canner tomatoes have produced oodles of fruits which have fewer seeds than ordinary tomatoes and thick meat. The Alton Horticultural Society ywill have then: annual Flower and Horticulture Fair at the Godfrey Civic Center on Sept. 14. Everyone is invited to exhibit flowers and vegetables.

The show will be open 10 the public from 1:30 until 3 p.m. with no admission charge. Ribbons and gift certificates will be given to the winners. Dear Mr. Clausen: I have a three year old Red maple tree, also a Columner Norway maple. They both have a shoot higher than the rest of the limbs. Should they be cut off or remain as they are? They are growing rapidly. When Is the best time to move a crabapple tree? Thanks for past Information. A Jerscyville Reader. Cut the shoots back this winter. Trees will bleed some come spring, but will stop as soon as new leaves form. After this trim all maples in summer. Remember trees should be shaped while young. November is a good time to movea crabapple tree. Trim top back some when moving it. Care for Christmas cactus Mr. Clausen: Wonld you tell me what kind of soil I should plant my Christmas cactus in. Also do they need any plant food and what kind? How do I keep dahlia bulbs in the winter? 1 have a very warm basement. Thank you. Mrs. D.S. Christmas cactus require a porous soil so they will drain good. A little fine limestone mixed in the soil will help, or you can use crushed egg shells. Established plants should be run a little dry now for several weeks whi'.e they are forming buds, theni taken inside before chilly weather. Day after first frost, dig dahlia bulbs, let dry for a few days and store in cool place. In your case store in sawdust or dry peatmoss. Or soil which have been dried out first. Grass seeds cause trouble Dear Mr. Clausen: Enclosed is a sample of grass that has put out its seed heads at a lower and lower height, the dry weather has continued and It has been cut several times after the rains. It has "taken" an area. Can yon tell me how to get rid of it? What can be done now, and what should be done at the beginning of another growing season? Thank you. Miss II.A. Weed is annual bluegrass. A one season grass that reseeds itself each year. You can get poor to fair control by spraying late fall or spring with Tupersan or Dacthal. I recommend you rake this spot length and crosswise now and sow regular bluegrass which will sprout and make good growth this fall and choke out this pest next spring. This is better than spraying.

They come in the house like a bee flying around. The first night I swept bugs up for 45 minutes. They land on the outside of the bouse so thick, you can't tell what color the paint is. Everywhere they land is brown sopts. I bought two cans of outside spray in two days and I still have them. They seem to come In the thickest where the window fan runs. I said they must be fan bugs for they all land on the sidei of the house where the fan is. Thank you if you know what they yare. M.F., Godfrey. The bugs look like rose chafers, but I'm unable to account for so many of them. So I'm not sure. A spray of malathion will get them and not harm the house if anything gets on it. It will only be a temporary nuisance but I can understand your problem. If you can find out where they come from spray that area. Sorry I can't do better. Care of poinselta plants Dear Mr. Clau-en: Could you p'.easc tell me how to care for a Poinsettu plant? I bought it last Christinas in one of the grocery stores. It is still in the original pot and has almost tripled in si/.e and looks quite healthy. I water it quite often, but have just been informed that I should have let it go in the summer and started watering in the fall in order for it to bloom aijuiii in the Christmas season. What is the correct procedure? Also, what month in the fall is best to transplant pennies? Many thanks in advance. I love your column and am a faithful reader. Mrs. L. M., Moro. All you can do now is to stake the plant, feed it several fines and take inside in a few weeks and p'are it in as mueh li'.jht as possible. Do not overwater.
