Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, April 16, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, APRIL 17 Your birthday today: Much of your inner self floats to the surface this coming year. Whatever you've been sowing now come to harvest. Relations tend to be poignant and turbuler1. Today's na- tives are usually abrupt in their way of taking action. ARIES (March 21-April You'll be rewarded for using restraint and tact People of authority are in disagreement Ask Andy Petrified forest Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Carlo Calanti, age 12, of Tor- onto, Ontario, for his question: What do they petrified foresto mean by a In everyday language, a petri- fied person is in a panic and too scared to move a muscle. "Pet- rified" originally meant turned to stone and this actually happened to certain ancient for ests. A somewhat similar state of frozen immobility overtakes a person said to be petrified by panic. e The famous Petrified Forest of Arizona is a picture-book de- sert, painted with rainbow rocks under the enormous dome of a dazzling blue sky. The scene has been this way for several million years. But to a trained eye, the place is strewn with evi- dence that die region was very differenti in the dim, distant past. You may bash into a bit of this evidence. Suppose you saw what seems to be a branch or a fallen log, lying right there on the ground among the colorful desert stones. If you happened to kick the woody object, you would regret it. When the agony subsided, you would be ready to team that the object is a pet- rified piece of wood made of super-hard stone. Simply stated, you innocently used your kick- ing muscles to bash your toe on one of the hardest chunks of stone in the earth's crust. The story goes back at least ISO million years, when forests of JrTig trees thrived in this area. Later, a change in climate Tcbbed the region of its moisture and the magnificent forest trees perished from thirst Their en- ormous trunks toppled into what head become a desert region of and sands. Some fell waterways. In time, desert winds piled desert sands above am around the fallen forest giants. The bone-hard was short of oxygen. Decay bacteria need this vital element to live perform their demolition duties on discarded organic material The fallen trees neither rotted nor decayed. Meantime through millions of years, scanty des ert showers percolated down through the surface and accumu- lated pockets of lazy ground water. In time, it dissolped loads of assorted silicates from the sandy minerals. The ground water also percol ated through the old fallen trees. Patiently, very patiently their organic chemicals were gently, very gently washad away The real miracle occurrec as the woody substances were replaced b_ super-hard silicate chemicals, left by the lazy min- eral-rich ground water. Grad- ually, these mineral deposits re- placed the_ woody tissue, copying the original cells and tree rings, molecule by molecule. In time, the woody remains of the ancient forest were turned to stone, which is the original mean- ing of the world The copy was made with age-old pa- tience in finest detail. The qual- ity materials used were molec of semi-preious silicates, in- cluding rainbow colored quartz- es and opals, jaspers and flow- tinted agates.

BLONDIi-By Chic Young When heart skips., flutters Dear Dr. Lamb I am 21 years o'd and ever since I was 18 I have had heart skips, flutters and sometimes my heart will beat as fast as 160 beats per minute. Twice I have had to get shots in the vein to make it slow down. I've had two electrocardiograms and last summer I had an x-ray. Some- times I bend over, and when I raise up, my heart feels like it's stopped beating for a mo- ment. My doctor says there isn't anything seriously wrong with mv heart. Could I be having heart failure? What causes these? person I am and a very nervous I am about 40 pounds overweight. Could this e it' I haven't done any exercise for almost a year because I'm scared about my heart. The only medicines I am taking are nerve pills to calm me down.

In voung individuals who have a definite history of heart prob- ems or findings on examina- tion, such irregularities are not usually a sign of serious heart disease. In such instances there Is some irritability of the heart, meaning that some of the tiny specialized muscle fibers with- in the heart are able to trigger the heart to beat prematurely causing the sensation of the heart skipping a beat.

In individuals who have re- current problems of this sort, without any evidence of heart disease or other underlying medical problems, difficult to say what causes them. It is certainly true that nervous- ness contributes to the prob- lem. Anything which causes a release of adrenalin and adren- alin-like chemicals, such as oc- curs with nervous tension and stress, seems to aggravate the problem. Coffee, because it con- tains caffeine which is a stimu- lant to the heart, can also ag- this condition in people who are prone to have this protfem. Indigestion is some- times a factor and so is the use of cigarettes. Most doctors rec- ommend that patients who have this type of problem should avoid coffee, tea, colas and all stimulating drinks and should desist from smoking if that is one of their habits. Beyond that, I would suggest that you might actually begin a mild exercise program. Since you haven't bean active, you will need to do this to begin with by walking and you should start with a 15-minute walk a day, then gradually build up so that you can walk an hour a day without being excessively tired. Beyond that point you might be able to progress to more vigorous physical activ- ity. This will help you get rid of that extra 40 pounds, unless you increase your dietary in- take, and there is some evi- dence that a good sensible ex- I TOLD HIRR'ET HOOPLEY THAT VOU'RE MUCH MORE GENEROUS THAN HER HUSBAND vV, IF THIS IS JUST A TRICK TO SET MOWEYOUTOFME.
