Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta I UWWUmj, Your horoscope By Dixon WEDNESDAY, MAY 1 Your birthday today: Throughout this year, the pursuit of details at all levels in all areas of life becomes a regular part of your campaign to improve Whatever doesn't work out now has to be evaluated swiftly and dropped in order to make room for new skills and habits. Relationships are lively, many-sided, more rewarding than ever. Today's natives are intuitive, much given to far- ranging theories and incompletely defined programs. ARIES (March 21-April Other people's problems relate to their negotiations with the institutions of our social order. You may have to put aside some of your own deals to help out TAURUS (April 20-May Social activity rushes you along and before you know it you're beyond budget outlays. Start counting pennies; know exactly where your cash goes. GEMINI (May 21-June You have to make the fine distinctions between your own and other interests. Spending has no connection with the esteem of those who count CANCER (June 21-July Nearly all who talk with you have plans to offer, most of which are outside your normal range of action Pay attention to what you are letting yourself in for LEO (July 23-Aug. Prudence and thrift are essential. Business actions and friendship aren't very compatible Manage your own money today rather than Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS April 30, 1974 Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker 29 years ago today in 1945 as Soviet troops fought their way into Berlin The Fuehrer shot himself and his mistress, Eva Braun, whom he had married the night before, took poison. In accordance with his instructions, their bodies were burned and no remains have been discovered 1946 Maj.-Gen. Kurt Meyer arrived in Canada to begin serving a life sentence as a Nazi war criminal. 1942 Japanese troops occupied Lashio, cutting the Burma Road to China relying on group funds. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Some connections have lapsed, some operations have come to their logical conclusions and are to be released from your concern and supervision. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Most of today's problems are not really yours but those of people whose co-operation you expect. Opposition to your plans exists in unlikely places SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. If you see a chance to do something meaningful on your own, fine. Just don't let your friends inveigle you into their speculative flyer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Outside interests are very attractive, your work still has to be done, and those you cherish need your time and attention. Check your budget CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Take the broader view of the situation, see the long- term trends while pursuing the details of work Co-operation is not to be assumed ask. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Jointly-owned resources come up for serious review, possible rearrangements. Be willing to take into account new factors, changing conditions. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Exasperation over trifles should be controlled or averted altogether by careful thought as to what you are about. A very busy day and evening (1974, The Chicago Tribune) Steel deal pleases Barrett VANCOUVER (CP) Premier Dave Barrett flew into Vancouver Sunday from his visit to Japan and said he is extremely pleased with a steel agreement his1 government has reached with the Japanese The premier said Industrial Development Minister Gary Lauk negotiated an arrangement with principal Japanese steel producers that will ensure sufficient steel for all projects in British Columbia Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN If74. Tht Triton East-West vulnerable. South deals. NORTH A A72 V AK5 0 965 48432 WEST EAST Q105 A 9864 10 4 Q?

Examine South's technique on this hand. The auction was straight- forward and to the point. South showed a balanced 16- 18 points and North's II points suggest game with something to spare. West led the seven of dia- monds, and when South cap- tured East's jack with the queen, he had eight sure tricks on top. There were several possibilities for de- veloping a ninth hearts could split evenly, es- tablishing declarer's long heart, or either of the black suit finesses could succeed. Notice that, as the cards lie, all these possibilities were fated to come to naught Yet declarer experienced no un- due difficulty in bringing home his contract. First he tested the hearts, and was mildly disappointed when West discarded a club on the third round. However, rather than commit himself to either black-suit finesse, declarer next cashed the ace of diamoirds. He was grati- fied when East failed to fol- low, for the no trump game could now be underwritten Declarer continued with another diamond, and West found himself on play. He could cash two more dia- monds, but there was no es- cape. On the fifth diamond, declarer discarded his heart loser, and West was still on play. He was down to nothing but black cards, and was re- duced to a Hobson's choice of leading away from his queen of spades or king of clubs. Either would be into declarer's major tenace, and would concede the fulfilling trick. Ask Andy FOG Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Jummy Snethen, age 11, of Newport News, Virginia, for his question: What exactly is a fog? Believe it or not, a fog is merely a grounded cloud. Its kmfolk float aloft above the earth, blown by the breezes, changing shape as they sail from here to there. A fog tends to squat where it is because as a rule there is no wind to waft it away Both fogs and clouds are made from the same misty moisture suspended in the filmy air. The basic ingredients needed to form a fog are air and water vapor. The energy used to create it is provided by changing temperatures In most cases, the weathery event occurs when a mass of moist air becomes cooler This can happen almost anywhere on chilly mornings. It happens most often along coasts where mild moist sea breezes clash with masses of cooler air above the land. Water vapor is an invisible gas made of separate water molecules. There is always a certain amount of vapor in the air, though the percentage is lower over arid regions and higher above tropical rain forests Its separate molecules mix and mingle with the gaseous molecules of the air, occupying the same space However, there is a limit as to how mouch vapor the atmosphere may contain. And this limit is governed by strict rules of temperature Heat, as we know, is a form of energy In the warm air, the gaseous molecules use this energy to spread farther apart Hence, warm air tends to be thinner and lighter than cool air. And warm air can contain a larger percentage of water vapor than cool air This basic rule is very precise. Meteorologists measure the vapor content in. grams per cubic meter For example, if the temperature is 86 degrees Fahrenheit, a cubic meter of air can hold up to 30.4 grams of moisture and no more Many a summer day reaches this temperature when the maximum moisture creates a muggy condition called high humidity. As a rule, things cool off during the night But as the temperature drops, so does the allowable quota of vapor in the air And what happens then is likely to create an early morning fog. Suppose the pre-dawn temperature drops to 68 degrees A cubic meter of air at this temperature is saturated when it contains 17 31 grams of vapor This means that every cubic meter of early morning air now contains a surplus of 13 09 grams of moisture And something must be done to get rid of it The surplus moisture in the cooler air may form an early morning shower of raindrops On the other hand, the extra water molecules may form tiny droplets of misty moisture, small and light enough to hang suspended in the air. The moisture is now in visible liquid form and what we see is a misty fog r As the sun climbs higher, the air becomes warmer again As its temperature rises, the air can begin to re- absorb more vapor The morning fog evaportates, or burns off, as its liquid droplets are changed back into gaseous vapor molecules Other types of fog form on mountain slopes and along the shores when masses of cool dry air chill masses of mild moist air In each case, the fog is a misty cloud of water droplets Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1974) Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I get a terrific shock every time I touch something metal at home, work, shopping, getting out of a car, etc. I have even shocked other people. It's a crazy situation, and it's beginning to get me down Can anything be done about it? Dear Reader This is more common than you apparently realize In modern operating rooms, the personnel must all wear grounded shoes, or shoe coverings A wire conductor connection is placed inside the sock to connect the body to the grounded footwear. This is done because everyone has some degree of the problem you describe. You are storing static electricity. It is capable of giving off a spark. Since there are explosive gases used in the operating rooms, it is very important that no spark occur, hence the grounded footwear You might check with some of the medical supply houses in your city and see if they can offer you any footwear that would do the trick. As you know, after you have discharged the static electricity from touching something metal or a person you will not have another immediate discharge shock until you have built up electricity again If you continually discharge electricity you won't build up a static charge. I suppose if it is really a problem you cculd have a piece of metal in the heel of your shoe that touches the surface of the floor and connects to a piece of metal that has contact with your bare heel. This would serve as a constant ground wire and prevent accumulation of static electricity. Rugs are a common cause of the problem The fiicticn between the filament and the movement of your feet builds up static electricity The coverings without filaments are better in this sense, such as tile, wood, or even the flatter carpeting (but that too can still be a problem) I can't resist the temptation to suggest that if all else fails you could always wear a chain and drag it along as gasoline tank trucks do to prevent static electricity and the possibility of an explosion. It would be a real conversation piece Send your question to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on ulcers, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Ulcers" booklet. Fun with figures By J. A. H.
