Taking on more than you can manage is al- most par for the course this year. Today's natives have a special knack with plants, are prudent in pursuing busi- ness. ARIES (March 21 -April Even with a complete switch from weekday doings, this Sat- urday seems troubled with rep- ercussions. TAURUS (April 20 May Impulse plays a large part in most of your doings.

George W. Carmack and two Indians, Skookum Jim and Tagish Charlie, were directed to the spot by Robert Henderson, a two-year veteran of local pros- pecting. In two years, Dawson City grew from a few shacks to people and all the im- portant creeks were staked within three years.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. While others shout, do whatever is necessary to get the results you want, quietly. Your money responds all too readily to im- pulse. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct.

He was a wonder- ful man when I married him 25 years ago. He was wonder- ful to our daughters when they were children but since they be- came teenagers and date he doesn't talk to them or their friends. I can't invite people or rela- tives Over because he ignores us all. This has been going on for the psst years. For the first time in our married life I laid him off in no uncertain terms six months ago. Since then he has not said one word to me. He will not go to a doc- tor, psychiatrist, or marriage counselor. Shall I get a divorce or shall I try a marriage counselor or psychiatrist by myself. Dear Reader If you're no longer able to carry on a con- versation with your husband or sit in the same room with him certainly your marriage is in serious difficulty. It is possible that your husband has a prob- lem but it would be difficult to properly evaluate the problem, without knowing the total situa- tion. This will require profes- sional help. It is my custom to recom- mend to people, as I do to you, that where a couple is having serious difficulties and one will not see a psychiatrist or marri- age counselor that the other one should. By seeking profes- sional help from a psychiatrist or other proper source at least one person can get some sup- j port through the difficult time. Through such professional as- sistance it is sometimes possible to get the other person also to enter into a proper evaluation program. I do not know how old your husband is but sometimes in botii men and women as they get older their personality un- dergoes signfioant changes. I would not advise you to get a divorce without having first sought some professional help. It could be that there are some basic psychiatric or even jaed- ioal problems that deserve con sidertion and it's just possible that they could even be helped. Dear Dr. Lamb My daugh- ter recently had her gall blad- der removed. When the body has to do without the gall blad- der what foods should be avoid- ed to be more healthy? Some say they eat anything and ev- erything. Others say certain foods hurt them. What I'd like to know is which foods should not be eaten. Dear Reader The gall blad- der is just a storage reservoir for bile. The bile is formed by the liver. If there are no other complications, simply removing the gall bladder still permits normal drainage of the bile through the bile duct into the intestine. It's just a continuous drainage rather than the inter- mittent drainage made possible by the gall bladder reservoir. A person who has a normal bils duct and normal liver func- tion very likely will be ab'.e to eat most foods without any dif- iculties. IndividuaJs who continue to have some abnormal function of their bile duct or some resi- dual abnormal liver function might have periods when insuf- ficient amounts of bile are emp- tied into the small intestine. The bile serves to emulsify fats so they can be digested. Indiv- iduals who have residual prob- lems, then after surgery often have to watch fatty and fried foods. Otherwise, they usually don't have any difficulties (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) THREE! pout uJOfW eenOSAT MORE TEETH ARE NOT SCOP J rpoK--------- TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K.

East INT Pass 3 NT Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Seven of O "When this deal was played In a recent tournament, a contract of three no trump was reached at every table in all but one case was successful. One unfortu- nate declarer fell victim to a fine defensive effort by' East. North knew his side had at least 25 points in the bined holdings. Even if. South were minimum. North felt his fine five-card club suit would be adequate com- pensation for any point-count deficiency, EO he vent straight to three no tramp. At every table but one, East won the first trick urith the diamond queen. He re- turned the suit, and West's ace felled dummy's king.." West continued with the ten1 ot diamonds, hoping that his king of hearts would be an entry to cash the rest of the diamonds. Unfortunately, declarer won the jack of diamonds and forced out the ace of spades. When East returned a heart, declarer rose with the ace and cashed out his tricks to make an. overtrick. At the one table where South went down, East fol- lowed with the eight of dia- monds at the first trick. This was a well reasoned choice. Applying the "Rule of East worked out that Sauth had only one diamond higher than the seven. He could no( have the ace of diamonds, for that would give West the J-10-9, and he would have led the jack. Also, it was {unlikely that South had the ten or nine, for then he would have played dummy's king as his best chance to win a trick in the suit. _ Therefore, South almost cer- tainly held the jack. Rather than allow declarer to preserve the jack as a third-round stopper, East -played the eight to force 'South to win the jack imme- diately. Later, when East got in with the ace of spades, he returned the queen of diamonds. West 'rose with the ace to bring down the king, and could take four more diamond tricks to set the contract two tricks. Double dummy, declarer can make the contract by allowing East's eight to win .the first trick. But that would be an unnatural play, .for West night have led away from a suit headed by the ace-queen, in which case a hold-up would allow the defenders to run the suit and beat the hand before South had a chance to take a trick. North Pole moves Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Jill Bowen, age 19, of Rowayton, Conn., for her question: Did the North Pole ever move? The North Pole has moved thousands of miles around the map of the world. Or so it seems. Once upon a time it was near Hawaii and later it took a lazy, lazy tour toward Japan. We know that it has been wandering around the world map for at least half a million years. No doubt this is still going on. We would not notice this because the North Pole wanders around much more slowly than a snail. Actually the earth has two north poles and two south poles. And all of them wander around. The geographic poles are at the opposite ends of the axis, around which the earth spins like a top. The axis is tilted and above the North Geogra- phic Pole hangs Polaris, the North Star: If the North Pole wanders away from its pres- ent place in the Arctic Sea, Polaris will no longer point out the north direction. The center of the earth acts like a giant magnet. Its oppo- site ends are the North and South Magnetic Poles. The magnetic poles never seem to move more than a thousand miles or so from their geogra- phic poles. But all four poles wander slowly, very slowly around the world map. Scientists have traced their wanderings back through "the ages. About 500 million years ago, the North Pole was out there in the Pacific Ocean near what is now Hawaii. During the next 140 million years it inch- ed toward Japan. Then it wan- dered eastward around Siberia and finally reached its present place in the Arctic Ocean. Meantime, on the opposite side of the globe, the South Pole was wandering around the southern oceans. And the magnetic poles toured around alongside their geographic poles. No, the poles did not lose their grip on the ends of the earth's axis. Nor did the axis tilt around in different direc- tions. But the earth's straight axis and the giant magnet are down there under the earth's j crusty skin. And the rocky crust is somewaht like a loose jacket. As it shifts around, different lands and seas slide over the axis poles and the magnetic poles. The global map shows the lands and seas on the surface. Actually, the continents and oceans are like giant rafts and puddles, embedded in the earth' crusty skin. We now know that the global puddles spread and shrink, while around and around drift the global rafts. These laxy tours are slower- than-slow. They keep remodel- ing the world map, though in a thousand years the changes are too small to notice. But gradually the loose crusty jack- et slides the map over the" ends of the axis and the giant mag- net. The poles seem to move around, when actually the sur- face lands and seas are slid- ing over their heads. The magnetic poles are more mysterious than the axis poles. They move around faster, though never far from home. And once in a great while they perform a remarkable flip-flop. Gradually their mag- netic strength weakens and dies. Then it reappears. But thb time the North Magnetic Pole and the South Magnetic Pole have changed places. No doubt the axis poles are still wandering and no doubt the mag netic poles will flip-flop again in the future.
