Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE LETHBnlCGE HERALD - Friday, December 3, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SATURDAY, DEC. 4 Your birthday today: This coming yea r's experience may present little of news value, yet includes profound and subtle growth changes in your nature, your views of life and destiny. The larger truth has a way of coming about whether yo-.i seek it or not. Today's natives often pursue practical arts, athletic hobbies. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Bring along any means of recording the bright ideas and sights of the weekend. Experience now can be memorable. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Almost any activity pursued with good humor and high expectations produces res ults. Find time also for serious study. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): It seems there's even more to do than during the week. You've likely skipped too many chores lately. Leave some of the tasks for still later. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Diligence and thoughtful consideration yield good returns. Seek out people and projects you've neglected for a while. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Past experience should become just that, filed and left unmentioned, as you open a new drive for fresh achievements. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Your alertness reveals a discrepancy. A sense of humor helps cover the scene while you adjust matters. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Begin your day with objectives firmly set and alternate methods in mind if conditions shift. Put together a lively group for a party. SCORPfO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. VD can result from kissing Dear Dr. Lamb - My friend told me that if you kiss a person on the lips, if he's got a sore on his mouth you can get VD. Is this true? Dear Reader - That depends upon what the sore is. A chapped lip, a fever blister (cold sore, or perpes simplex) or a fat lip after a football game isn't likely to cause anyone any trouble except for the guy with the lip. Your friend is correct, however, if the sore on the lip is the early sore that sometimes occurs from an infection with syphilis. Kissing anyone who has the contagious stage of syphilis can result in infection whether or not there is a sore on the Up. All the germ needs for transmission is wet or fluid environment and the moisture in the mouth from saliva is such a vehicle. Although kissing can transmit disease, more often the disease is transmitted by what comes after the kiss. Dear Dr. Lamb - I am writing about a five-month-old child cutting teeth. The mother takes whisky and rubs the gums and gives the balance to her undiluted. The child bangs her head on things. Don't you think this is dangerous? Maybe you can enlighten her. Dear Reader - It is not likely that the whisky will eliminate any bacteria or problems locally where the teeth are. The alcohol in the whisky may act like a mild anesthetic - or not so mild if it is given in significant quantities and often. It doesn't take very much alcohol to affect a five-month-old tot. This practice cannot be recommended on a recurring basis. Dear Dr. Lamb - We would like to know how apples, rhubarb and other home-grown fruits rate with oranges and grapefruit in vitamin content. Dear Reader - The two vitamins cf greatest interest in these foods are A and C. Oranges have about twice as much vitamin A as apples or grapefruit. They have a little more vitamin C than grapefruit and seven times as much as apples. Rhubarb has a lot of bulk and yields about one-third the calories found in the same weight of orange sections. The same weight of rhubarb has half as much vitamin A and one-fifth as much vitamin C. Now if you use three times the weight of rhubarb (to obtain the same number of calories as in oranges) then you will get more vitamin A and half as much vitamin C from rhubarb as from oranges. The real champion is tomatoes. They yield half as many calories, more than four times as much vitamin A and half as much vitamin C as the same weight of oranges. If you eat as many calories of tomatoes as oranges then you get the same amount of vitamin C and nearly 10 times as muoh vitamin A. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

The final contract of three no trump was reached at both tables on an identical bidding sequence. At one table, West opened the king of spades and South paused to assess the situation before playing to the first trick. If he won West's lead with the ace to take the diamond finesse and it succeeded - he could take 10 trickj, five diamonds, three ciubs and the major suit aces. If the finesse lost and East returned a spade thru the jack, West could score four tricks to defeat the contract -provided that he held a five card suit If be bad only four spades, then the contract was safe. In order to protect himself against the more adverse prospect, South ducked toe first trick, following suit with the three. West realized that it would be disastrous to continue spades, inasmuch as partner was expected to drop *� lack under the king if be held that card. West required a lead thru his opponent and he shifted to the jack of hearts in an attempt to get East in. The latter was pleased with West's play and he encouraged a continuation by signaling with the nine of hearts. West led the ten next and the ace was played from dummy. A small �lub was led to the queen to put the queen of diamonds thru for a finesse. When East produced the king of diamonds, he cashed the king and queen of hearts to score the setting trick. The result appeared unavoidable, for had South won the opening spade lead and then taken the diamond finesse, East can return a spade when he is in and West will mop up four more tricks in that suit. The declarer at the second table uncovered a clever strategy to counter the adverse distribution. In order to encourage a spade contin-u a t i o n and discourage a heart shift, be merely followed to the opening king of spades lead with the jack! This made it appear that he had started with a doubleton and West could hardly resist the temptation to continue with the queen of spades, for it appeared that South would not merely be obliged to play the ace, but that East would have a third card in the suit to reach his partner once spades were established. South won the second spade with the ace and took the diamond finesse, losing to the king. East was out of spades, however, and was forced to surrender the lead hack to his opponent. Declarer ran for cover with nine tricks-one spade, one heart, four diamonds and three clubs. Observe that South could not lose by his play, for if East does have a third spade to return-the defense is limited to four tricks, three apades and one diamond. Decisions are quick, and probably made as you run. Keep cool; remember that most of the movement of the day doesn't concern you very directly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. 21): Find partners, competitors, audience wherever you can use the occasion for your favorite hobbies and games. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Quiet, presentations need only to be timed and spaced properly to get attention. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. IS): Get out and about early, see all the changes in your neighborhood. There's an unplanned opportunity waiting your vision and development. PISCES (Feb. 19-Marcb 20): Day and night the option that offers most enjoyment is leaving behind familiar people and scenes. Acquire new habits. Absolute zero Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Barbara Ames, age 12, of Newport News, Virginia, for ber question: What is meant by absolute zero? The word zero gets around In our everyday world. W e use three zeros, $0.C0 to report a penniless condition. Zero degrees Centigrade, is the freezing point of water. Dry ice is about 80 degrees colder than this, or minus 80 degrees centigrade. But things can get a lot colder than dry ice, at least in the lab. Absolute zero is a temperature rating, invented to give the absolute limit of how cold things can get. * * * When temperature scales first were invented, their degrees were based on the freezing point and the boiling point of water. On the old Fahrenheit scale, water freezes to solid ice at 32 degrees. It boils to steam at 212 degrees. This is a difference of 180 Fahrenheit degrees. On the more streamlined Centigrade scale, the same difference is a neat 100 degrees. Water freezes at 0. and boils at 100. This scale made it easier for scientists to figure things on the metric scale. But it gave no clues to the real nature of heat and cold. These clues are related to what really happens when temperatures rise and fall. Heat is a form of energy. Its energy is actually the speed of moving molecules and atoms. As water gets hotter, its molecules slide around faster. As it cools, the loss of heat energy slows down the molecules. At 0 degrees centigrade, they fit together in crystals of ice. But they still have enough heat to jog and vibrate. Some motion remains until a substance reaches the heatless limit of absolute zero. There seems no limit as to how a hot subsance can get. But it reaches a limit of coldness when its temperature drops to minus 273.15 degrees centigrade. This is about 273 degrees below the zero degree of freezing water on the Centigrade scale. It is the same temperature as minus 459.67 degrees Fahrenheit, which is about 427 degrees colder than the zero on the Fahrenheit scale. Cryogenicists, who study the effects of super-cold temperatures, obviously needed to simplify this zero confusion. It was decided to forget the old Fahrenheit scale altogether. The new absolute scale, alias the Kelvin scale, is based on the neat centigrade degrees. But its zero is absolute zero, and on the absolute scale, water freezes at 273 degrees above zero. Cryogenics is rather a new branch of science. It is full of surprises and rewards. For all sorts of things happen when ordinary substances become cold-er-than-cold. However, removing the last fraction of heat from a substance is very-very difficult. So far, the cryogenicists have not chilled anything right down to the bones of absolute zero. But they have come within a small fraction of one degree. �  � At super-c o 1 d temperatures, many n o n-magnets become magnetic. Lead and other stubborn metals conduct electricity. Cryogenics research has led to improvements in metallurgy, rocket fuels and new electrical devices. One experiment slowed, down the bewildering spin of electrons and helped to solve an important nuclear problem. In this case, a temperature of one tenth of a degree above absolute zero was held for ten second periods. Questions asked by cnHdtcn of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

OTTAWA (CP) - The Commons miscellaneous estimates committee had a close look here at labor department advice on finding a new job. Brightly-colored pamphlets prepared by the Unemployment Insurance Commission were studied as Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey argued successfully for approval of a $110,000 expenditure for a winter works project in British Columbia. About 44 persons would be hired for several months to conduct a labor-market survey in the province where unemployment is high despite job vacancies. The purpose of the pamphlets, passed out to applicants for unemployment insurance, was to motivate out-of-work persons to go after available jobs themselves rather than wait for Canada Manpower Centres to offer one. The West Coast study would pinpoint prospective areas �where they could concentrate their efforts. The pamphlets, contained in a blue plastic folder, are part of the commission's claimant as-s i s t a n c e program operating since June. Mr. Mackasey described the program as "a kind of ombudsman." ASK FOR ASSESSMENT The printed material given unemployed persons asked them to prepare a summary of their abilities and needs. The information is then analysed at a subsequent meeting with an assistance officer. Mr. Mackasey told of several cases in which the officers directed persons to welfare agencies rather than employment prospects. These included pregnant women, deserted wives with families and the physically or mentally handicapped. "There's not much sense sending them down to manpower because they're not going to do anything for them." The minister read a M of cases where the assistance program had helped people find steady work, start their own business or undergo psychiatric help. The committee approved the expenditure, which comes from $80 million in funds tagged last month for federal winter works. Thin bottle ban scored at the 'Hat MEDICINE HAT (CP) -City council has asked the Alberta government to delay implementation of a ban on non-returnable soft drink bottles, saying that the ban would seriously hurt employment in the area. About 100 workers at the Dominion Glass Co. plant in nearby Redcliff were laid off more than a year ago when British Columbia banned non-returnable bottles and another 50 were laid off recently in anticipation of a similar move by Alberta. The Alberta ban is scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. The protest telegram, signed by Mayor Harry Veiner, asked the cabinet to withhold implementation of the act until city council has had a chance to meet with the government. A meeting has already been scheduled for January. The telegram, sent Wednesday, said that while soft drink bottles cause litter, they do not cause pollution in the same sense that a smokestack does, for example. It added that the measure to require merchants to award a two-cent refund on the bottles is discriminatory against soft drink containers and said that the measure will be ineffective as a control over littering. pr vmis NEVER FALL IN LOVE ] � WITH A SNOlufLAKEJ TUMBLEWEEDS-By TOM K.
