Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thunday, August 6, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 17 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, AUGUST 7 Your birthday today: Your challenge will be a search for fresh ways of expressing your spiritual growth. The year is full of sudden turns and abrupt decisions. Ad- vance planning must include reflection on what you might do in the face of possible changes. Today's natives are easily roused and readily ap- peased by appeals to their reason. They pursue original THE DQCTOR'S MAIUBAG Spring Water, Tap Water Have Similar Benefits By WAYNE G. BUANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. What is the difference between bottled spring water and ordinary tap water? Doesn't spring water lack something the body needs? A A lot depends on the spring. If a careful check kept on the spring water to in- sure that it doesn't become con- taminated with disease germs it is as healthful as tap water. All public supplies of tap water in this country are subjected to rigorous daily examination. Furthermore, tap water is usu- ally treated with chlorine and fluorine. The chemical composition of both types of water varies widely. If water -from eithef source is lacking in traces of Iodine those who drink it regu- larly are likely to develop a goiter. Q I drink soda pop, coffee, and tea but rarely any plain water. Is this harmful? A Not if (1) your daily fluid intake is sufficient, (2) you avoid an excess of caf- feine by taking your coffee and tea weak and (3) you avoid an excess of sugar in your drinks. Carbonated drinks are likely to distend your stomach, cause belching and an increase in the amount of gas you pass by rectum. Q In a recent column you said1 that drinking ice water is harmful. I have drunk little else all my life and feel fine. Please comment. A Many persons can gulp large amounts1 of ice water without apparent harm but for anyone who has colitis, sudden chilling of the digestive organs from the inside or the outside is likely to cause abdominal cramps. Q I have heard that sea water in small amounts is ben- eficial since it contains essen- tial minerals not contained in the food we eat. Is this true? A Not if you get a bal- anced diet. Furthermore, the idea that victims of a ship- wreck can.survive by drinking sea water has cost many a sail- or his life. Q You once said that a person should drink eight glass- es of water a day. I have been drinking 16 glasses a day. Is that too much? What does water do for one? A one quart of water taken as liquid is enough because you get another quart in chemical combination in solid foods. Anyone who drinks more than six pints a day, ex- cept on very hot days, should be examined to see whether he has some form of diabetes. Water is necessary to flush out the skin, lungs, kidneys and to maintain the body fluids (blood and work over long periods with patience.

Mouthwash Code To Be Checked Breakfast Cereals Get Another Blast WASHINGTON (AP) A professor of nutrition accused the cereal industry today of brainwashing the American public with a Communist-like propaganda campaign aimed di- rectly at children. "In a country where there is Pest Strip Presents No Danger OTTAWA (OP) Eesidue of chemicals in the bug-killer No- Pest strip found in fatty foods is well below the tolerance level of human beings, Dr. R. A. Chap- man, director general of the food and drug directorate, said Wednesday. Dr. Chapman said he has been in touch with the U.S. food and drug administration about the administration's order that Shell Oil Ltd. change the label on the American No-Pest strip to read: "Do not use in kitch- ens, restaurants or areas where food is prepared or served." The American authorities had informed him that a small resi- due of the chemicals in the strip was found in foods in rooms where the strip was used. Dr. Chapman said humans have a tolerance of two parts per million in foods containing six-per-cent fat. The amount' found in foods by the U.S. au- thorities was much lower than that. "We don't feel this represents any significant hazard to health." The Canadian food and drug directorate was looking into the U.S. findings and if necessary would carry out its own tests. The Canadian label reads: "Keep out of reach of children. Wash hands after han- dling." It also includes a warning in- side the package that the strip should not be used "in areas where the chronically ill may be continually exposed." Dr. Chapman said if children put the strip in their they could become ill. ACCEPT ENVOY MOSCOW (Reuters) China has agreed to the appointment of Vasili Tolstikov, Communist party chief of the Leningrad re- gion since 1962, as Soviet am- bassador in Peking, Communist sources said Wednesday. Tolsti- kov, 53, will be the first Soviet ambassador in Peking since Sino-Soviet relations reached, their lowest point nearly four years ago. a considerable amount of ma] nutrition among the poor am where rates of infant mortality are disgracefully high this ad vertising may be indirectly con tributing to ill health and mor said Dr. Michael C. La tham, a physician and interns tional professor of nutrition a Cornell University. Latham commented in testi mony prepared for a third ses sion of the Senate consumer subcommittee's inquiry into the nutritional value of diy break fast cereals. The subcommittee began its inquiry last week with testi mony by citizen-lobbyist Robert Choate that most of the heavily advertised breakfast cereals are no more nutritional than han liquor. Tuesday, the industry accuse; Choate of basing his findings on inadequate, confusing and in- complete information. "The American people are continually being asked to sup- port Radio Free Europe be- cause we are informed that chil- dren in Communist Eastern Eu- rope are being brainwashec with Latham said. "I sometimes wonde" if the advertising that our children see on TV is not equally harm- ful propaganda. "My main thesis is that the consumer has been led to be- lieve that ordinary dry break- fast cereals have nutritive value superior to common foods such as bread, hominy grits, rice, spaghetti, baked beans, pota- toes, pizza etc. This is not true. In an interview in Ottawa in July, Dr. A. B. Morrison, dep- uty director-general of Canada's food and drug directorate, said the top three Canadian dry cer- eals, plus hot cereals and those made for infants, contain pro- tein sufficient to provide ade- quate breakfast nutrition. The milk used with them helps, the official said. Sheep Dying In Dry Spell SYDNEY, Australia (AP) Millions of sheep are dying in Australia's drought stricken states of New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Terri- tory. Unofficial estimates put the toll at three million. This is likely to continue mounting un- less the dry spell is broken. Al- most half New South Wales has been declared a drought stricken area by the state gov- ernment. OTTAWA (CP) The food and drug directorate will look at new regulations of the U.S. food and drug administration on ad- vertising claims for mouth- washes to see whether they should be applied in Canada, Dr. R. A. Chapman, director- general of the directorate, said today. "It does appear that the new American restrictions are more rigid than those which are cur- rently permitted in Dr. Chapman said. The U.S. food and drug ad- ministration announced Monday that nine manufacturers of mouthwashes had been ordered not to make any medical claims. They are allowed to ad- vertise "a pleasing effect to the mouth." The order applies to the fol- lowing makers and their prod- ucts: Johnson and Johnson's Micrin oral antiseptic; Lever Brothers' Pepsodent antiseptic mouth- wash, William S. Merrell Co.'s Cepacol, Warner Lambert Phar- maceutical Co.'s Sterisol, Pur- due Frederick Co.'s Betadine, Isodine Pharmaceutical Co.'s Isodine, -Kasdenol Corp.'s Kas- denol mouthwash and gargle, Merck Co.'s Tyrolaris mouth- wash and Cole Pharmacal Co.'s Tosis. ONLY 4 SOLD IN CANADA Dr. Chapman said only Cepa- col, Sterisol, Betadine and Mi- crin oral antiseptic are sold in Canada. All four are permitted to make some medical claims such as treatment of minor sore throats due to colds or smoking. Dr. Chapman said the Cana- dian food and drug directorate Sas in the past been tougher on what advertising claims can be made on labels than the U.S. food and drug administration. But the new American rules would seem to be more restric- tive. The Canadian rules divide mouthwashes into two categor- ies: cosmetic-type and drug- type. The cosmetic-type mouthwash can make no medical claims and does not have to list ingre- dients on the label. It is permit- ted to say that it controls bad breath. The drug-type mouthwash can make claims such as treatment of ninor sore throats but must also Ifet ingredients on the label. Unemployment To Replace Inflation TORONTO The To- ronto Dominion Bank sees un- employment replacing inflation as the 'major Canadian eco- nomic problem during the. sec- ond half of the year. The bank's quarterly review says inflation is far from being cured although Canada has done substantially better in control- ling it than has the United States. 'But the full price in terms of unemployment, lost output and slower economic growth has yet to be the review says. "The unemployment rate, which averaged 4.7 per cent in 1969, could easily average six per cent in 1970, with some indi- vidual months going as high as seven per cent on a seasonally- adjusted basis. This will reflect the failure of new employment opportunities to keep pace with Canada's relatively fast growth force." GOREN ON BRIDGE BV CHARLES H. GOREN im: CMaH TrtHuH Neither vulnerable.

Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Five of A realistic appraisal of his prospects guided South, the declarer at four spades, Into i line of play that Tin dis- tinctly counter to the odds. West opened the five of dia- monds and East cashed the king and ace. He twitched to the three of hearts. After considerable thought, declar- er played the nine which dis- lodged West's ace. South won the heart continuation in his hand, crossed over to the ace of clubs and led the queen of spades for a finesse. When East turned up with the king of spades, South cleared the (rump suit without casualty an'd claimed his contract, 'having lost two diamonds and one heart. North congratulated his partner on the latter's fancy footwork in manipulating the1 heart suit, observing in the process that South had played against the odds in taking deep finesse. North pointed out that if East was under- leading the ace of hearts, declarer can restrict himself to one loser by putting up an honor and subsequently lea'd- ing a second heart from the dummy toward the other hon- or. For South's play to suc- ceed, he had to find East with both and ten of hearts. South agreed with his part- j set's conclusions regarding percentages, however he pointed out that his decision had been influenced by pure- ly practical considerations. East had already shown up with the ace and king of dia- monds. In order for the con- tract to succeed, South must play his opponent for ihe.king of spades, where that, card is finessable. If in addition, East has the ace of hearts, then surely he would have opened the bidding as the dealer. Inasmuch as East had passed originally, South auto- matically assigned the ace of hearts to West in which case he can get out with one heart loser only if East has both tht jack and ten- UOODSTOCKISAWATAie FOR SELLIN6 OOT..BIRW DONT THESE is TMEFIVE-fOOTOTBN CFLANPAWMINff LOT 143 COMMISSION SENT ME ELEVEN DOLLARS; I'M RICH WHAT DOK AW AIR PERSON KNOtuASOUT LAMP VALUES?
