There is much challenge; many blank walls, dead-ends. Your intui- tion and diligent effort in every case will open a special path beyond the limitation. Stress and strife help build a sound basis for the future.

VENEREAL DISEASE CASES OTTAWA (CP) Reported cases of venereal disease in Canada ran at a rate of 140.4 per population in 1069 compared with 119.3 in 1968. The Canadian Press in an Ot- tawa story July 27 erroneously reported that the rates applied to population. talents in serious professions.

CANCER (June 21 July In the midst of routine and family affairs you may find a new point of view, quietly but rather suddenly. Follow it up with serious study. LEO (July 23 Aug. Your patience in this compli- cated day is important. Haste, excessive pressure would de- feat your objectives; and know- ing this, you prevail by person- al serenity. VIRGO 23 Sept.

Search Pressed For Protein WASHINGTON (AP) Scien- tists are rummaging through trash cans, sifting the seas and harvesting fungi and germs in the quest for cheap, plentiful sources of protein, the body's most important tissue builder. Their search, reported at the Third International Congress on Food Science and Technology now under way here, is fuelled by the realization that in the standing-room-only world of the in already crowded is at a prem- ium for the. animals which prov- ide protein. Protein deficiency is a vita! factor in the deaths the United Nations estimates occur daily from hunger or malnutri- tion. With the population of the world expected to more than double to seven billion by the end of the century, the problem is likely to grow more acute. North Americans on the aver- age eat 66 grams of animal pro- tein a person a day, supple- mented by milk, eggs and eals. ASIA: 8 GRAMS But the individual consump- tion of animal protein in the Middle East averages 14 grams, in Africa 11 grams and in Asia eight grams. It is in the animal-poor coun- tries where scientists are press- ing hardest to extract the pro- teins directly from grasses, grains and other substances. South Africans, Colombians with the exotic-sounding names of "Pro-Nulrp" and "Incapar- ina" and fortified by protein ex- tracted from soybeans. Indians enrich biscuits and candies with peanut flour. In the United States, firms are test-marketing protein-enriched flour and noo- dles. But scientists aren't stopping with soybeans and peanuts as rich sources of protein. P R. Krishnaswamy of In- dia's Protein Foods Association noted that his country, for ex- ample, is one of the world's largest producers of peanuts and cotton, yet eats only five to six per cent of its peanuts and feeds cattle on 70 par cent of the seeds culled from its cotton bolls. SQUEEZE PEANUTS Now researchers are trying to tap the 1.6 million tons of 50 per cent protein pulp from pressing peanuts into oil. The cake is usually fed to animals or used for fertilizers. Elsewhere, the products being tapped for protein depend on what's available: corn tassels at Kansas State University, sugar cane waste in Colombia, coco- nuts in The Philippines, weeds in Portugal, "junk fish" in Seat- tle, fungi and bacteria in Eng- land, seaweed, algae and mi- crobes in Japan. C. R. Gatellier of the French Petroleum Institute reported on plans in France, Japan and Russia to produce protein from and Guatemalans are already a yeast culture grown in a pe- drinking beverages endowed! troleum medium. Your own affairs ore in good order, but those ot others require tactful attention. You can see what is most likely "wrong" but not why. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Friends and family get in the way just enough to delay your plans. Strangers require special courtesy. Patience with loved ones saves much distress later. PISCES (Feb. 19 March You must keep some secrets, at least for now. Don't make a big show of what you are doing. Giving in to demands is like- wise not very constructive. Ask for more time. 1970, Ncwsday, Inc. THE WELL CHILD Douching Neither Causes Nor Prevents Cancer By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Q I have heard that douch- ing after intercourse may push the sperms up to meet the ovum. Is this true? How soon ifter intercourse is it advisable to use a douche? A If douching with a spermicidal solution does push ny sperms into the uterine cervix, which is doubtful, they would'be dead sperms. To be effective, h o we ver, the douch- ing should be done immediate- ly after intercourse. Q Can daily douching cause cancer? A Routine vaginal douch- ing as a means of feminine hygiene makes no more sense than using a daily enema, daily eye wash, daily nasal douche and daily mouthwash. Na- ture unaided does an excellent job of keeping these parts ade- quately clean except in the presence of specific disease. Douching will neither cause nor prevent cancer. Q Is it possible with fre- quent douching to wash away all the ova in the ovaries? A No. Douching washes the vagina but not the uterus or tubes and certainly not the ovaries. Besides, the ova are discharged from the ovary only when they are ripe. Q My doctor says 1 should have my Bartholin glands removed. Is this a ma- jor operation? A The two Bartholin glands are situated on either side of the vagina. When they beorne infected or cystic, it may be necessary to remove them. This is a relatively mi- nor operation. Q _ where is the rcclal seal located? How does it work? A A rectocele is a protru- jion of the rectum through the wall of the vagina. .When it is mall, it causes no symptoms. But, if it is large, the victim can empty her bowel only by puslu'ng the rectocele back place. It can be repaired by an operation. Q I have had a dropped bladder or cystocele for six years and it is getting bigger. Will it turn into a cancer? Is surgery the only treatment? A A cystocele or protru- sion of the bladder into the vagina is not likely to become cancerous. Surgery is the only satisfactory treatment. Q What is P I a u e n i 1 given for? Is it a tranquilizer? What are its side effects? A This antimalarial drug is not a tranquilizer. It is often beneficial in the treatment of lupus erythematosus and rheu- matoil arthritis. Its side effects include headache, dizziness, nausea and diarrhea. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN 19 by Tin Chlciw North-South vulnerable. East deals. NORTH AKQJ32- VJ984 0 J2. J4 WEST 41 10 87 VKS OK973 OAQ 983 Q 3 6 2 SOUTH EAST 0 JO S 6 5 4 The bidding: East Soulh, West North Pass Pass 2 V- Pass 3 0 Pass V Pass .Pass Pass Opening lead: Ten of 4- By seizing the initiative at the crucial moment, West took a decisive step. that was essential to achieve an upset of South's four heart con-' tract. South chose to treat his red suit holdings as equals and he opened the bidding with one heart. When. North offered a single raise, South rebid three diamonds as -a game try. Holding maximum values for his initial response, North accepted the invitation and proceeded to four hearts. West opened the ten of clubs covered by 'the' jack, queen and king. South cashed the ace of spades and the ace of clubs and then ruffed a club in dummy. The sine of hearts was led and passed when East played the three. .West was in with the king. There appeared little hope of defeating the contract unless the defense could cash some diamond tricks, so West switched to the three of diamonds. East put up the ace and continued with'the queen. It is West's play at this point that determines, the outcome of the deal. If West lets'East hold the second diamond trick, the latter cannot prevent the from regaining ttie lead. If, for example, East switches to a spade, South can cash two high spades- discarding diamonds from his hand and then lead North's jack of hearts to repeat the trump finesse. If East covers with ths queen, declarer plays the ace and then ruffs out his last diamond with the eight of trumps. If East does not cover the jack of hearts, dummy retains the lead and cashes the jack of spades permitting South to discard his remaining diamond. In either case the. defense is limited to two diamonds and one heart tricks. West decided that unless he found his- partner with only two diamonds, declarer was well on his way to victory. He therefore overtook the queen of diamonds with the king and led a third diamond. North ruffed with the jack but East overruffed with the queen for the setting trick.
