On Christmas Eve 1971 Juliana Koepke, a seventeen-year-old girl, _____ Lima by air with her mother. They _____ on their way to Pucallpa, another town in Peru, to spend Christmas with Juliana’s father. Forty-five minutes later the plane _____ up in a storm, and Juliana _____ 3,000 metres, strapped in her seat. She was not killed when the seat _____ the ground (perhaps because trees broke her fall), but she _____ all night unconscious.
The next morning Juliana _____ for pieces of the plane, and _____ for her mother. Nobody answered, and she _____ nothing except a small plastic bag of sweets.
Juliana’s collar bone was broken, one knee was badly hurt and she had deep cuts on her arms and legs. She had no shoes; her glasses were broken (so she could not _____ snakes or spiders, for example); and she was wearing only a very short dress, which was badly torn. But she decided to try to _____ out of the jungle, because she _____ that if she stayed there she would die.
So Juliana _____ to walk. She did not _____ anything to eat, and as the days went by she got weaker and weaker. She was also in bad trouble from insect bites. She _____ helicopters, but could not see them above the trees, and of course they could not see her. One day she _____ three seats and _____ that they had dead bodies in them, but she did not recognize the people.
After four days she _____ to a river. She saw caimans and piranhas, but she _____ that they do not usually attack people. So Juliana walked and _____ down the river for another five days. At last she _____ to a hut. Nobody was there, but the next afternoon, four men arrived. They _____ her to a doctor in the next village.
Juliana _____ afterwards that there were at least three other people who were not killed in the crash. But she was the only one who _____ out of the jungle. It took her ten days.
Mrs. Black was having a lot of trouble with her _____, so she went to her doctor about it. He could not find anything _____ with her, however, so he sent her to the local hospital for some test. The hospital, of course, sent the _____ of the tests direct to Mrs. Black’s doctor, and the next morning he _____ her to give her a list of the things that he thought she _____ not eat, as any of them might be the cause of her skin trouble.
Mrs. Black _____ wrote all the things down on a piece of paper, which she then left beside the _____ while she went out to a ladies’ meeting.
When she got _____ home two hours later, she found her husband waiting for her. He had a big basket full of _____ beside him, and when he saw her, he said, “Hallo, dear. I have done all your shopping for you.”
“Done all my shopping?” she asked in _____. “But how did you know what I wanted?”
“Well, when I got home, I found your _____ list beside the telephone,” answered her husband, “so I went down to the shops and bought everything you had _____ down.”
Of course, Mrs. Black had to tell him that he had _____ all the things the doctor did not allow her _____!

What Makes Us Hungry?
When we need food, our body begins to crave for it. But how do we know that we are feeling “hunger”? How does our mind get the message and make us feel “hungry”?
Hunger has nothing to do with an empty stomach, as most people believe. A baby is born with an empty stomach, yet it doesn’t feel hungry for several days. People who are sick or feverish often have empty stomachs without feeling hungry.
Hunger begins when certain nutritive materials are missing in the blood. When the blood vessels lack these materials, a message is sent to a part of the brain that is called the “ hunger center”. This hunger center work like a brake on the stomach and the intestine. As long as the blood has sufficient food, the hunger center slows up the action of the stomach and the intestine. When the food is missing from the blood, the hunger center makes the stomach and intestine more active. That’s why a hungry person often hears his stomach “ rumbling”.
When we are hungry, our body doesn’t crave any special kind of food, it just wants nourishment. But our appetite sees to it that we don’t satisfy our hunger with just one food, which would be unhealthy. For instance, it would be hard for us to take in a certain amount of nourishment all in the form of potatoes. But if we eat soup until we’ve had enough, then meat and vegetables until we’ve had enough, then dessert until we’ve had enough, we can take in the same quantity of food and enjoy it!
How long can we live without food? That depends on the individual. A very calm person can live longer without food than an excitable one because the protein stored up in his body is used up more slowly.
Take it easy
Take it easy!
Where there is a will, there is a way!
We say all these things to balance our emotions and gain strength. But it is not as easy as it seems. So, what’s the answer? We cannot go and live on a desert island. There are lots of things we can do of course. We can take more exercises. We can eat less, smoke less, we can have a well-organized rest.
But perhaps the most important thing we can do is to learn to relax. Stress grows very slowly. It is made up of all the little things that make us tense, day after day, year after year. Every time we relax, every time we put our feet up, every time we have a cup of tea and a chat with an old friend we take away some of the tension, that causes stress.
Americans worry about relaxing. They take classes to learn how to relax. They read books that tell them how to “take it easy”. Relaxing is a multi-dollar industry in the USA. So, why not master this skill and do it on your own (without paying much money)?
But before you start think of what doctors say nowadays, “Too much relaxation is bad for you too.”
Which Number Do You Call?
If an Englishman says that he is ill, he means that he has an illness, or is unwell. If he says that he is sick, he means that he feels so terrible that he can vomit.
If a person is absent from work because off illness, he is said to be on sickleave.
The damp English climate can lead to a catching a cold or a sore throat.
People consult doctors if they have a cough, a temperature, a headache or insomnia. The doctor usually examines the patient and prescribes some treatment, pills, tablets or some other medicine, which we can buy at the chemist’s.
In emergencies people in Great Britain call police, fire or ambulance on 999. Which number do you call in your home town if you are in trouble or need specialized information?
Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment
Dr. Heidegger’s laboratory was dimly lighted and covered with dust and cobwebs. In one dark corner stood a skeleton in a tall, narrow closet. The people of the town told strange stories about it. The walls were lined with bookcases full of mysterious-looking volumes. Between two of the bookcases was a mirror in a carved frame. It was said that sometimes scary faces could be seen looking out of the mirror.
To this room on a winter’s evening, Dr. Heidegger invited four of his friends. They were all sad, old creatures, who seemed to be waiting to die.
Mr. Meddlar, a businessman, had spent his life cheating and grabbing all the money he could. Colonel Killegrew was born rich and never had to work. He wasted his life eating and drinking too much, so that now he was sick all the time. Mr. Gasoon used to be in politics. His idea of public service was to make the public serve him. Decent people would cross the street to avoid meeting him.
The only woman in the laboratory that night was Mrs. Widdows. She had once been very beautiful but had a bad reputation. All of the three guests and many other men besides had once been in love with her.
“My dear friends,” said Dr. Heidegger when they were gathered together, “I’ve asked you here tonight to help me with a little experiment.” He pointed to a beautiful crystal jar and four wine glasses on a table. The jar held a clear, sparkling liquid.
His guests looked worried. Fifty years ago the girl Dr. Heidegger was going to marry died. There was a rumor that Dr. Heidegger had given her the wrong medicine. They didn’t mind coming to his house to look through his microscope or some other nonsense, but they certainly didn’t want to drink anything from his laboratory.
Dr. Heidegger crossed the room, opened one of the books, and returned with a rose, or what once was a rose, though now it looked ready to crumble to dust in his hands.
“Fifty-five years ago this rose was given to me by the girl I wanted to marry. For fifty-five years I have treasured it between the pages of that old book. Do you think that it is possible for it to bloom again?”
No, they did not think that it was possible.
“Watch,” said Heideger. Than he sprinkled a few drops from the water jar over the rose. At first nothing happened. Then – it seemed amazing – the crushed and dried petals seemed to puff out and turn red. The stem and leaves became green. The rose that was fifty-five years old looked as if it had been picked from the garden a minute ago.
“That’s a good trick,” Colonel Killegrew said, “but what part do we play in your experiment?”
“It’s no trick,” Dr. Heidegger said. “Did you ever hear of the Fountain of Youth? This is magic water sent me by a friend. He swears that it is the last water from the Fountain of Youth. A year ago he discovered it, and six months ago the fountain dried up.”
“Well,” said Colonel Killegrew, “what effect does it have on human beings?”
“You shall soon judge for yourselves,” replied Dr. Heidegger as he filled the four wine glasses. “But before you drink, you had better think about the kind of lives you have led and make some resolutions about not making the some mistakes again.”
Everybody laughed. Of course, if they had their lives to live over, they would be better people. They all agreed to that. They would not be so foolish the second time around.
“Drink, then,” said Dr. Heidegger, “and enjoy a second life.”
With their wrinkled hands they raised the glasses to their lips. Almost immediately there was a change. Just as the dried-up rose had grown fresh, the years rolled back from those four withered people.
“Give us more of this wonderful water!” they cried. “We are younger, but we are still too old! Quick, give us more.”
Once again the doctor filled the glasses.
“Mrs. Widdow,” said Mr. Meddlar, “you are really beautiful again. If I did not have to get about my business of stealing – er, I mean collecting – money from the poor, I would ask you at once to marry me.”
“Yes, indeed,” said Colonel Killegrew. “Mrs. Widdows, you are even more beautiful than before. I’m going to give the biggest party this town has ever seen. After all the feasting and drinking over, I’m going to ask you to be my wife.”
“No,” said Mr. Gascon. “I’m going to run for mayor. When Mrs. Widdow sees how rich and powerful I will be when the town has to give me anything I want, I’m sure that she will marry me.”
Mrs. Widdow loved getting so many compliments. She didn’t really want to marry any one of them. She was thinking about how many parties and dances she would go to. She was wondering how many new men would fall in love with her now that she was young again.
“We are young! We are young!” they cried, and began to dance around the room.
“Doctor, you wonderful man,” giggled Mrs. Widdows, “get up and dance with me.”
“Excuse me,” said Dr. Heidegger, “but I am old. I haven’t tasted the magic water, and my bones ache.”
“Dance with me, Mrs. Widdows,” cried Colonel Killegrew.
“No, no. I will be her partner,” shouted Mr. Gascon.
“No, you won’t. She promised to marry me fifty years ago,” said Mr. Meddler.
They all gathered around her. They began to pull the poor woman this way and that. As they struggled, the table was turned over, and the water jar broke into a thousand pieces. What did it matter, if the jar broke? What did it matter if they acted like silly children?
Dr. Headegger noticed it first. “Look,” he said sadly, “the rose has begun to fade.
Sure enough, even as they turned to look, the flower shriveled up until it became as dry and fragile as when the doctor started his experiment. His guests shivered. Would it also happen to them? With the water jar broken, they could never become young again. A chill came over their bones. In minutes they were again – grey haired, wrinkled, and full of aches and pains.
“Are we grown old again, so soon?” they moaned.
“Yes, friends,” said Dr. Heidegger, “the water of youth is gone, but I do not regret it. I was ready to give you back your youth again, because I thought you would know how to lead better lives. But all your mistakes have taught you nothing. You have learned nothing by growing old. You are old, but you are foolish.”
But his four friends did not hear him. They were already putting their money together. They were planning a trip to look another Fountain of Youth.

Nine years ago when we were in London, a report was sent to the American journals that I was dying. I was not the one. It was another Clemens, a cousin of mine. The London reporters began to come in, to ask about my health. There was nothing the matter with me and they were rather surprised and upset to find me in my room reading and smoking. One of these men was an Irishman who did his best to look glad told me that his paper, The Evening Sun, had sent him a telegram, asking if it was true that I was dead. I said: “Say the report is exaggerated.” He never smiled but went away and sent the telegram in those very words. The phrase has gone all over the world.

Riding the cycle of Stress and Smoke.
Cigarettes help smokers to relax. The study, published in the October issue of American Psychologist, examined one of tobacco’s central paradoxes: smokers say that lightning up provides a sense of relief and well-being, but as a group, they hardly seem that relaxed.
The new study, conducted by Dr. Andy Parrott, a psychologist, found that adult smokers report higher levels of stress between cigarettes, that teen-agers report increased tension as they move from experimental to regular smoking and that former smokers report lower or similar stress levels than current smokers.
Dr. Parrott conceded that one explanation could be that people with higher levels of stress are drawn to smoking.
But more likely, he said, smokers are suffering the whipsaw effect of addiction.
“ The regular smoker needs nicotine to maintain normal moods,” Dr. Parrott wrote, “ and suffers from unpleasant feelings of irritability and tension between cigarettes when his or her plasma nicotine levels are falling.”
He suggested that pointing out the link between nicotine and stress could be useful in helping smokers face the undeniable stress of quitting.
