Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THf. LHHBRIDGE HERALD WetJiwday, April II, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEAN6 DIXON TlltT.SlMV. APItlL 11 Your birthday today: Ex- pect no dramatic successes or drastic failures this year. Concentrate on finding spir- itual enlightenment. Today's LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Test readings are normal Dear Lamb My son is almost 27 years of age. Recent- ly Vien he gave blood at the Red Cross he was told that his pulse was 60, blood pressure 117-70, and his temperature was one and one-half degrees below normal. He's had similar readings on olher medical examinations. On another ex- amination his blood pressure was 128-56 and pulse 64. He is 6'4" and weighs approximately 190 pounds. He doesn't seem to be in a hurry about anything he does. He is an engineer and is active in volleyball and bas- ketball in the evenings immedi- ately after work and doesn't cat until late at night. The doctors here don't seem to be alarmed by Ms readings. They call him a "cool cat" Please let me know what is the cause of these abnormal readings and if he should hare medical attention. Dear Reader Your son does not have abnormal read- ings and that's why the doctors aren't concerned about Mm. His relatively ".low heart rate is more an indication that he's in good physical condition. In- dividuals v.ho get reasonable amounts of exercise and do not smoke or drink excessive amounts of coffee tend to have low heart rates. To illustrate the point, Roger Bannister had a resting heart rate in the 70s before he trained to break the four-minute mile and at the peak of his training his resting heart rate was below 40 beats per minute. Likewise, the relatively low but normal diastolic, or lower reading of the blood pressure is Indicative of someone in good physical condition. And inci- dentally, individuals with low, or low-normal blood pressure on this basis, tend to live bnger than individuals with higher blood pressure readings. Also statistics show that men who are on the tall side live longer than those who are on the short side. As far as temperature is con- cerned, the body temperature will normally vary in many in- dividuals as much as one and one half degrees during a 24- hour period. It's usually lowest in the morning and some people tend to have relatively low readings at that time without it having any msdical signifi- cance whatsoever. In summary, it sounds to me far from your son having ab- normal readings or a medical problem, that ha is probably in excellent physical condition. Dear Dr. Lamb I once read that sweets are changed to alcohol within the body. If this is true, does tins alcchol have the same effect on the liver as whisky? Dear Reader More pure hokum in tbe food-lore depart- ment. If by alcohol you refer to the ethyl alcohol found in al- coholic beverages, there isn't a v.ord of truth to this statement. Incidentally, all sweets and other carbohydrates, plus fats and even proteins can be pro- cessed eventually in the same metabolic cycle in ths body. By that I mean simply that proteins can be to carbohydrates and fats and that fats and carbohydrates can all go through the same cycle of chemical changes in the body's metabolic process. The metabolic machinery of the body is really quite unique. It can "handle just about all of the different kinds of foods v e give it. One of the major de- fects though, is it's not able to handle all of the excess food that it's commonly asked to process, whether it's sugar, fat protein. natives are. nearly always confirmed optimists, ingeni- ous at finding solutions to problems. ARIES (March 21 April Co-operation, good will, hospi- tality come fluently but mean little in terms of real results. Offer no promises. TAURUS (April 20 May Emotions are free: you have a chance to declare something long awaited. Romance beck- ons. GEMINI (May 21 June Life flows swiftly. Enjoy what is available. No extra striving at the moment will bring im- mediate bsttermsnt. CANCER (June 21 July Most pressures ease off. Re- coup your energy. Evening brings news, perhaps welcome visitors. LEO (July 23 Aug. Pushing on with the momen- tum of recent past could cause embarrassment. Pause for re- flection and enjoyment. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. All will go well on a low- pressure basis. You will not fret over inconsistent behavior or incomplete details. LIBRA (Sept. 33 Oct. If you hope to buy or invest, this is the day for research and checking out facts. Spend a reasonable sum on entertain- ment, perhaps. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Life should be enjoyable most of the time. Today may show you something on this subject. Relax, reflect, pray. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. A sense of personal duty carries you thru a day of sur- prises. Many communications arc vague don't worry. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Emphasis switches from your resources and responsibi- lities for others' welfare to what is said in many words without deep meaning. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Circumstances which lack any special pressure must con- sciously be taken in stride. Somebody lets slip a long-hid- den secret. PISCES (Feb. 19 March Routine, particularly household, tends to take more time than expected it's just as well, as you see later. 1973, The Chicago Tribune I WONPEK CTHEK TEAM LOSE, I'M WE WIN, I FEEL 6UILTY.'

South has announced at least 13 high card points and North has 20 -which assures minimum of 33. NorHi held three aces him- self, there was no need to check for controls, and ha proceeded without further ado to six no trump. West opened the three of hearts and the ace was played from dummy. With even division ia spades. South has 12 ipades, three three diamonds and one club. Hnwever, when the king and of spades were cash's! West showed out. de- clarer's total of winners nere reduced )o 10. Inasmuch as East held a double stopper in spades. South switched his attention to dubs. Ee led the three of c-Twbs from dummy and fi- nessed the queen in his band. When West trici wth the long, Soulifs defeat became assured. won the heart turn in dummy with the king and led the ten clubs. East covered with the jack and was permitted to hold the trick. The latter exited with the jack of spades to North's queen. South reen- tered his hand with the king of diamonds and cashed tba ace of ckbs. When the suit split evenly, he was able to claim the balance for a trick setback. Declarer's conviction that the success of his contract hinged entirely on a success- ful club finesse plus a threa- three division in the suit was not quite accurate. The pres- ence of the ten in dummy and the eight in his hand, offered him an additional chance that could be atr tempted without risk. It is suggested that South lead the ten of clubs at trick four with the intention of passing that card into West's hand if it is not covered. Inasmuch as one trick in suit must be surrendered re- gardless of the distribution, the finesse of the queen can be conveniently deferred lot one round. When the ten of cWbs is led. East is obliged to play the jack to protect his part- ner's holding in the suit. South covers with the queen end West is in with the king. When clubs are led the next time. East follows vita tba seven and declarer plays eight which holds tbe trick. The ace DOW picks up the remaining clubs and Soutb has his 12 tricks. If the East-West club hold- ings were reversed, declarer woaW still succeed. Toe ten of clubs would lose to UM jack, but on tbe following lead of that rait. South can wcessfully finesw queen and then pick king with the ace. The tayra Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Tod Asmussen, age 13, of Sioux City, Iowa, for his question: What kind of animal is the tayra? In character, the tayra is a friendly, sociable type, very curious and sometimes too trusting for his own good. He is a busy hunter and a mortal enemy of the ratty rodents. In appearance, he is a furry little beauty and a member of the most expensively dressed fam- ily in the entire animal king- dom. We natives of North Am- erica regret that the charm- ing tayra makes his home south of the border. Let's start with a sprightly how-do-you-do to our local chapter of the animal family Ivlustilidae known to back- ward folks as the weasel clan. True, the mustilines are hun- gry little carnivores. True, the northern wolverine is reputed to be a cunning, bad-temper- ed glutton and without a doubt the rather lazy skunk de- fends himself with an unforgiv- able kind of chemical warfare. But without them, the rodent populatic-L would explode out of bounds. local mustilines include the stoats and polecats, the minks and martens, the charm- ing otters and the busy bad- gers, the weasels and the lux- ury class ermine. They wear the most lavish fur coats in tbe world thick and silky soft. Most of these well-dressed cousins favor earthy browns, like the weasel's summer coat. Others wear grizly greys or Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Stone of Scone, stolen Dec. 25, 1950, from West- minster Abbey, was re- covered by poSce 22 years ago in at Ar- broath Abbey. The 485- pour.d stone was stolen by Scottish students to direct attention to their attempts to obtain an autonomous Scottish parliament. Three men ard a woman admitted the theft, but were not pros- ecuted British sovereigns have been crowned while scaled on the stone since ;t was brought to London in 1296. Gen. Douglas Mac- Arthur of the United was removed from all mili- tary posts in the Far East by President Truman. Indian nationalists rejected a post-war auton- omy offer from the United patches of skunkish black-and- white. In winter, the northern weasel dons a whtie ermine coat, fit for a ruling monarch. The tayra is the southern cousin of our mustilines. He is at home in the forests of Mexi- co, throughout Central Ameri- ca and southward into Argen- tina. An adult tiyra weighs about ten pounds and may measure three and a half feet, almost half of which is hand- some tail. He has a slender, supply body with rather long legs and very tough claws. His rounded ears are smallish and his pert little face is al- ways alert. Naturalists' who know him well report that tbe color of a tayra's exquisit fur coat de- pends upon where he lives. Along the coastal plains he favors velvety black. Farther inland, the basic color is light- ish brown, often sprinkled with silver threads. A tayra of the central savannahs may wear pearly greys or creamy tan with an ermine vest. Regard- less of the basic color, a tayra always wears a brooch, a very light star or patch on his throat. A tayra may live alone, though usually he or she shares a life with 15 or so chummy relatives. The charming crea- tures go on moonlight safaris and take daytime siestas. Often thev wake up at mid-day and frolic like frisky acrobats through the tree tons. e Not much is known about tyra family life. The den may be a hollow tree or a deserted armadillo burrow and the fe- male bears a couple of well- dressed cubs. Soon they are ready to join the mid-night hunts for rodents and bird eggs.
