Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LPTHBRIDGE HERALD August 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 15 Your birthday today. Opens a year of steady striv- ing slou of pjce. bound of re- sult. Self-affirmation becomes a nay of life for the healthy. a goal for thoss who must mend their ways. Today's na- tives have the knack of pub- lic image present themselves well on almost any level. ARIES 21 April Energy goes into steady con- rather than allow circumstances to distract your atention. TAURUS 20 May Ask Andy Mother-of-pearl Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Jenny Marie age of W. for her What is Instead of the early American Inians used wam- pum and wampum was made from mother-of-pearl. It is a glossy material that many shellfish manufacture to line the insides of their shells. Each species uses its own re- cipe but most mother-of-pearls glow with pale moonbeam col- ors. Some of the loveliest are rosy pink. Wampum money beads were shaped from a patch of purple mother-of-pearl found inside the shell of a cer- tain fresh water clam. Precious pearls are made of which also is called nacre. Though the love- ly material glows like frozen it is made from very ordinary chemicals found dissolved in salt or fresh water. About 92 per cent of the basic recipe is a compound of chalky carbon. Another two per cent is plain water. The remaining six per cent is the wonder in- gredient that transforms these ordinary chemicals into layers and pearly beads of nacre. clams and dozrans of other shellfish have sensi- tive bodies. They live inside sturdy shells that protect them from most of their hungry foes. their shells are made of tough tough enough to scratch the soft little bodies that live inside. the water that brings in food and oxygen also may bring in ichy grains of sand. they must line the inside of their shells with something smooth and comfortable. The something smooth is na- cre. It is created by a fleshy flap called the mantle which wraps around the creature's soft body like a cloak. In the mantle there is a layer of cells that rearrange the simple in- gredients extracted from the water and mixes them with a special sort of cement. Tne nacre is prepared pa- drop by gooey drop. It oozes from the mantle and spreads a tihinner-than-thin layer on the Inside of the shell or shells. The wonderful stuff dries very fast with a shiny finish. This glossy paint job is hardly finished before the shellfish is ready to apply ffiie next and then the next one. the molecules are arranged in a variety of pat- terns. Some form shiny layers. In other the fragmerss of nacre are ar- ranged to act like multitudes of shiny little prisms. These prisms refract the light so that it glows like a pale pearly The nacre-covered walls feel comfortable. But sometimes a gritty grain of sand manages to enter and irritate the shell- fish's soft little body. To solve his the mantle coats it with a layer of smooth nacre. Later another smooth layer is then another and anoth- er and the itchy invader is en- cased inside a pearly bead. If the shellfish happens to be a certain species of this bead of nacre becomes a pre- cious pearl. Questions asled by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box 765.

Declarer found a neat way to sever the enemy communications and so circumvent their tempts to score a ruff on this hand. North's takeout double is rather light. the vulnerability was in his favor with both major he preferred a double to an overcall of one spade. preemptive tactics could not keap South cut of the auc- for the latter had a fair hand and a good suit. A diamond attack did not seem to offer promise in view of East's announced length in the so West tried to find more fertile fields with his lead of the club king. If his partner held the he would be setting up two tricks in the suit. In as he held first- round trump there was the possibility of ing a ruff. Declarer won the ace of and it seemed that his only losers were one trick in each suit except for spades. Had he gone ahead and tried to draw West would have stepped up with lha ace on the first trump cashed the queen of clubs and underled his ace of dia- monds. East would have gained the lead and given his partner a club ruff to defeat the contract. Declarer was aware of the possibility of a club and considered ways of prevent- ing this. The bidding offered a slight clue. East had preempted in and was unlikely to do so if he held a spade suit on the side. it was reasonable to assume that he was more likely to be long in clubs than West. The problem there- to prevent the defend- ers from cashing the queen of clubs and then 5 Ing a club ruff. There was probably no way to do this if East held the ace of hearts. if East's entry was in the transportation between the defenders could be interrupt- ed. declarer led a diamond at trick two. It made no difference which defender won that trick. West could cash his queen of but there was no way he could put East on lead to score his ruff. Declarer could draw trumps at his lei- sure and claim his contract.

Young boy has blood in urine I'VE PKIPEP ITS HIGH TIME SOMETHING WAS PONEAPOUTITJ WE RE0RETRJUY ACCEPT YOUR RESIGNATION.1.' BLONDIE-By Chic Young I ONHYPNOTISM ANP I WANT TO PRACTICE--YOU IT--SLEEP IN MY POWER -WRITE OUT A CHECK FOR FOR A MINK JACKET1 WILL YOU SETTLE Dear Dr. Lamb About 15 months ago my 14-year-old son passed a few drops of blood. This happened after he had urinated. About a drop at a time. His doctor said he thought it was an infection and had him on penicillin for two a strict diet and res- tricted activity. Well I took him to see a kidney specialist to see what he thought. He wanted him x-rayed and this checked out right. He said to forget diet and restrict- ing of his activities. He sched- uled a cystoscopy but the bleeding stopped. He said if the bleeding started again he would do it then. a month ago a spot was in his shorts and another one today. This wouldn't be enough for the doctor to be able to see where it was coming but it sure worries me. Everyone I talk wilh about it says they have never heard of this in a in women. Is this very rare and does It have to be something serious7 My son doesn't seem a bit concerned and says he has no pain. Dear are sev- eral points along the urinary tract where bleeding can occur. It does happen some- times in young boys. It does not necessarily mean a serious disease. No one can tell the significance of how- without a complete ex- amination. The blood has no relation to the bleeding that is seen in women. More often it will occur in the urethral tube to some form of irritation or in the area around the prostate. In the absence of any symptoms it is unlikely to be due to an in- fection. fresh blood of this type may indicate a tumor and it can be important. You should make an appoint- ment with a doctor and let your son talk to the doctor alone. The doctor can talk to you afterward concerning what he thinks should be done or if he thinks it is possible to wait to see if the matter takes care of itself. But I would not neg- lect seeing a doctor. Dear Dr. Lamb In refer- jence to your column on lo-v blood I was surprised to see that the three important don'ts were not mentioned. 1. Don't smoke. 2. Don't drink al- coholic beverages. 3. Don't use caffeine or strong tea. I have known personally my own case of labile glucose easily in- fluenced by disregard of the three don'ts plus excess car- bohydrate for years and have also been so advised by my gastrcenterologist. When I adhere to a strict diet for some wee'sS tben I can avoid frequent meals. I trust this info may be of value to other functional hypoglyce- mics. Dear Reader I agree with your three don'ts. There have been several columns on low blood sugar because of limitations in I've only been able to cover a limited number of points in each col- umn. To the admonition not to drink coffee I would add a ban on even the decaffeinated cof- fee if one also utilizes sugar and cream with the coffee. In- as I have any liquid material passes immediately through the stomach. If it contains sugar it will enable a rapid absorption of sugar into the bloodstream causing a high rise in b'ood sugar followed by a rebound or fall later. While these three don'ts that you have written about are they will not obviate ahe necessity of us- ing a proper diet plan emphas- izing protein foods and nat- ural foods to provide adequate roughage and eliminating foods rich in sweets.
