TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Attend the emotional needs of children, young people near or related to you. Explore and find fresh developments in your neighborhood. The evening is for simple fun and games. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Family matters are in for a flutter of minor changes before they settle back to just what they were before the day started. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): You must cope with some people you haven't seen for a while. Friends and their concerns should be heard and perhaps cared for.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Pills Blamed For Woman's Ailment NEW YORK (AP) - A Brooklyn widow has been awarded $251,000 as the result of intestinal damage attributed to taking birth control pills.

Roberta Meinert, 29, used the pill Enovid in 1961-62. Her lawyer charged that Mrs. Mednert,-who suffers from phlebitis, a blood-clotting disease, incurred "a severe thrombosis in her intestines" as a result of blood clots induced by the drug, and that she bad to have two operations in which parts of her intestine were removed.

BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newsprjer Enterprises Assn. Q - What could cause bleeding from the rectum? My doctor could not find any hemorrhoids. A - In addition to hemorrhoids, local causes include fissures, polyps and cancer. Such other causes as amebic dysentery and ulcerative coMs must also be considered. Q - About two years ago my mother, 55, had a proctoscopic examination. The doctor said she had small areas of lymphoid hyperplasia in the rectum. He said nothing could be done for it. Is this a form of cancer? A - No. This is merely an abnormal increase in lymphoid tissue. Since it is not a disease, no treatment is needed. Q - What is the difference between a proctoscope of the rectum and a rectal barium examination? Which is better? A - A proctoscope is a metal tube containing a light. When it is passed into the rectum, it enables your doctor to examine the rectal wall for ulcers, polyps, tumors and blee ding points. A barium enema is given in am X-ray room. It enables the X-ray specialist to see the outlines of the entire colon which would not show up without the radiopaque barium. This is helpful in finding.a partial obstruction or other abnormal configuration. Both examinations have their own merits and many patients have both as a part of a diagnostic workup. Q - Is proctitis a form of cancer? What treatment do you recommend? A - This is an inflammation of the rectum due to an infection. It is not a form of cancer. The treatment would depend on the causative organism. Usually one of the antibio^ tics is prescribed.  Q - My mother died with cancer of the colon. Each year I have a Pap test but I have never had a rectal examination. In the absence of any rectal symptoms, should such an examination be done? A - A rectal examination with a gloved finger should be a pari of any routine examination on a man or woman who is oyer 40. ' 'Q - How serious is a recto-cele? What treatment to you recommend? A - This is a protrusion of the rectum into the vagina, a form of hernia. It is an annoyance rather than a threat to life. Surgical repair is the only treatment. PI AM IS S6li lilu^MUiiouuaiiiiUiiaiiiii' CAMPUS CLATTER-By Larry Lewis Oxygen May Be Harmful In Heart Attack Cases ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Two University of Rochester researchers said yesterday the common practice of administering pure oxygen to a heart attack victim may not do any good and may, in fact, be harmful. They said they would not yet recommend stopping the practice for all heart attack victims but urged further study of the subject. The report was made by James Johns, a fourth-year medical student, and Dr. Arthur Ban Announced On Weed Killer WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States government announced yesterday a ban on use of a controversial herbicide called 2,4,5-T around homes, water areas and food crops because of new evidence showing the chemical can cause birth defects in some laboratory animals. The order does not affect use of the powerful weed killer on highway rights of way and livestock range land which account for most of the U.S. application. At the same time, the defence department ordered suspension of use of 2,4,5-T as a defoliant in South Vietnam. OTTAWA (CP) - Health authorities have been conducting special checks for residues of the herbicide 2,4,5-T, which new evidence indicates can produce birth malformations in experimental animals, the federal food and drug directorate said. No residues have been found in foods in Canada so the directorate plans no steps at present to make regulations establishing HIDE WORK AREAS DEG0RATIVELY Open the PELLA Wood Folding Doors and have an efficient laundry room.

Medicine Hat Inquest Set MEDICINE HAT (CP) - An inquest has been called' for May 6 into the death last July 26, of Victor Boeder, 25, during a gun battle with police at a local shopping centre. Police had been called to investigate a break - in at the shopping centre. During the incident 11 persons, including five police officers, were held hostage by two gunmen. Dr. M. M. Cantor of Edmonton, provincial chief coroner, will conduct the inquest. J. Moss, associate professor of medicine in the cardiology unit, University of Rochester Medical Centre. It was presented to the annual meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. The researchers, noted that pure oxygen is often given routinely to persons suffering from recent heart attacks-acute myocardial infarction. TISSUE MAY DIE An infarction is an area of tissue that has died because of in-sufficient oxygen supply. Around the infarct is an area of tissue-ischemic area-that may die if the insufficient oxygen supply is not corrected. The idea behind giving oxygen has been that an increase in the pressure or driving force of oxygen will increase the oxygen supply to the ischemic heart muscle tissue around the infarct. Johnson and Moss said they tested this idea in dogs and concluded that it doesn't work. The researchers said other scientists have shown in animals and humans that pure oxygen breathing has some adverse effects-by increasing the resistance the heart must pump against, thus decreasing the blood output from the heart. "These effects are probably insignificant as far as the total body is concerned, but may be critical to thai small area of ischemic heart muscle surrounding an infarct," they said.
