In other years the time is different, sometimes the previous day. Babies born this year before this time are Leos, those bom afterward are Virgos. Both Leos and Virgos born this date of any year face a dramatic year of unpredict- able changes, much lively op- portunity and incentive to im- prove themselves.

AQUARIUS Cattle Industry h Warned On Use Of Hormone Implant WASHINGTON (AP) A top Food and Drug administration official has warned the cattle in- dustry that use of the hormone DES will be banned if residues of the cancer-inciting agent con- tinue to slip into the United States beef supply. Residues of DES have been detected by government inspec- tors during each of the last five f e d e r a 1 law gays no residues will be toler- ated in meat reaching consum- ers. The hormone, which has caused cancer in laboratory ani- mals, is legally fed to cattle to itimulate weight gains. Dr. C. D. Van Houweh'ng, director of the FDA's bureau of veterinary medicine, recently told the Association of Ameri- can Feed Control Officials that although the hormone is benefi- cial to growers, the government cannot tolerate any residues. "If residues persist because feeders are not following the specified restrictions and with- drawal period, there will be no alternative left but to withdraw approval of its Van Hou- treling said. He did not set a timetable for any FDA action. In June, The Associated Press reported that U.S. government inspectors had found residues in 0.7 per cent of the beef they checked in 1965, 1.1 per cent in 1966, 2.6 per cent in 1967, 0.7 per cent in 1968 and 0.6 per cent last year. At that time, Van Houweling Mid the residues were too small to cause worry. However, in his speech to the teed-control officials in Louis- ville, Ky., this nionth, Van Hou- weling noted that federal law itates no residue of a carcino- gen may be permitted in food derived from animals that have been treated with drugs. "The legal restrictions of the act in regard to the residues of drugs in food from animals are based upon human health' con- siderations. We in the bureau of veterinary medicine must give human safety top priority in our evaluation of drugs for use in raised for food." He also said that publicity given to findings of residues was "unfortunate." Without cjting specific news articles, Van Houweling said in his speech that "biased report- ing" of the residues is unfortun- ate "because feeding DES will produce beef 10 to 16 per cent more economically and these savings benefit both producers and consumers." "Beef prices would probably be at least 20 per cent higher if we did not have DES or a simi- lar he said. Book Says Ex-Czech Boss Treated Like An Animal LONDON (Reuters) For-, mer Czechoslovak leader Alex- ander Dubcek was treated like an animal on the way to slaugh- ter after the 1988 Soviet-led in- vasion of his country, says a book published here today. Tire book, first full biography of Dubcek since his downfall, says he was in an advanced state of shock at the time he was arrested just two years ago and flown to Moscow from Prague. "What was in fact done to him is not yet says Brit- ish writer William Shawcross in his book. "But it is one of the most hid- eous and repulsive aspects of the invasion.... All are agreed that he was treated more as an animal on the way to slaughter than as the legal head of an al- lied state "He was sent back from Mos- cow on Aug. 26 to destroy him- self, his reform movement and his following. He was sent back to exterminate his ideals." One of the basic problems, says the book, was that Dubcek did not rise to statesman's stat- ure. He was essentially a small-town politician. Dubcek himself admitted after his 15 months In power that his re- forms of Czechoslovakia's Com- munist system had sometimes been "ill-administered." The biography, simply enti- tled Dubcek, is published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson. Shaw- cross, 24, is the journalist-son of Lord Shawcross, Britain's chief prosecutor at the Nuernberg war crimes trials. Dubcek, now jobless, was ex. pelled from the Czechoslovak Communist party last June 26. At the same time he was offi- cially relieved of his post as ambassador to Turkey. On Jan. 5, 1968, Prague radio announced to a surprised Czech- oslovakia that the then unknown Dubcek had replaced Antonin Novotny as first secretary of the country's Communist party. He lasted 15 months as first sec. retary. (Jan. Feb. ALEXANDER DUBCEK In State of Shock NATO Brass Fears Cut In U.S. Troop Strength BHUSSELS (AP) Military sources at NATO headquarters here are worried that President Nixon's administration will ask Congress to cut United States military strength in Europe be- ginning in mid-1971. They are concerned because (hey say Soviet air and naval strength is building up in the Middle East and its military muscle is increasing in central Europe while the U.S. is talking about cutting forces. Cuts might reduce the strength of the U.S. 6th Fleet in the Mediteranean. "The Soviet navy is now firmly established in the Medi- one sourcs said. "They have good surface-to-sur- face missiles. They have their own tactical planes and pilots on the southern littoral of the While They Last! 1970 TOYOTA COROLLAS TOYOTA TRAVEL CENTRE located af General Farm Supplies CouMs Highway Phone 337-3165 Mediterranean. There are re- ports of longer-range Soviet planes in Egypt too, though there is some question whether their pilots are Soviet or Egypt- ian. "It does not matter what their mission happens to be at the are a distraction to our forces in carrying out our responsibilities, which is seeing to the needs of the NATO coun- tries in this area: Italy, Greece, Turkey. They reduce our flexi- bility." FUNDS REQUIRED The Nixon administration has pledged no reduction in its Eu- ropean forces before mid-1971. But Congress has not yet appro- priated funds for the period up to that date. The delay is hold- ing up discussion within the ad- ministration on what to ask for afterward. Western intelligence also re- ports strengthening of Soviet and allied troops in central Eu- rope. This involves improve- ment of conventional weapons, not affected by the discussion of big intercontinental nuclear missiles at the strategic arms limitation talks. The .Soviets are said to be in- creasing their artillery support I in some ground units by one- third. This would overcome what NATO commander's consi- der the present superior ratios in their units. Soviet and allied tanks and tank ammunition are also said to be improving. In some weapons, notably tanks and tactical aircraft, So- viet forces have long held supe- riority in Europe. You are apt to find you are alone in your opinion. Give some thought to the circum- stances and how they came about. Your reflections can be productive.
