Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saturday, December 4, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGt HERALD 27 SUNDAY, DEC. 5 Yoar birthday today: Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon make tire rounds to shave I SCORPIO (Ocl. 23-Nov. If you can resolfe social per- son to person transactions well, there's no hindrance to an abundance of success for you this year In conventional vocations or career. Today's natives tend to proceed with great energy in uneven cam- paigns, with strong ups and downs in career. ARIES (March 21-AprlI Once you've met the commu- nity's approval in your share of local customs, settle back to catch up and really enjoy home life. TAURUS (April 20-May Although you're not particularly seeking business or commer- cial deals, something of the sort does tend to come to your attention. GEMINI (May 21-Junc Relax, study, meditate. Then friendly news and cheer. Later hours lend themselves to a lively party. CANCER (June 21-Jtily Be calm, and serene in floating thru this Sunday. Discussions or debates are not to be taken too seriously. LEO (July 23 Aug. Re- ward yourself with as com- plete a rest as circumstances permit. Your favorite hobby is all right, too. Just let the world attend to itself for the day. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Fresh enterprise has a favor- able atmosphere in which to achieve a very promising be- ginning. Get off to yourself and work out details. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. The morning for yourself is a minimum chores can wait. Put serious thought into dis- cussion of relations. Snails and shells Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Jimmy Mills, age 12, of Hobart. In- diana, for his question: How soon do baby snails get their shells? A snail's survival depends upon tJie elegant shell lie car- ries on his back, and nature makes sure that he gets this es sential piece of personal prop- etry. The shell starts to form during the embryo stage and grows as the snail grows. It is a permanent attachment and part of his body. It serves to protect him from insects and certain other enemies. But its main is to provide a humid hide-away, without which he would soon perish. You can observe the early stages of a snail's shell with the help of a hand lens or good magnifying glass. Find some of the small milkly white eggs left behind on the slippery trail of a parent snail. The embryos feed on the yolk and develop faster in mild, moist weather. In cool or dry weather, you can help them along by placing them in shady, fairly warm container with moist leaves to provide a humid atmosphere. A well-developed egg is fairly transparent. With a good lens, you can see the unborn snail inside. With a steady hand and little patience, you may even observe the slow pulsing of the heart. And there on the tiny creature's back is a small, tis- sue-dun flake of glassy mate- rial. This is the future shell. At this stage, your specimen is about ready to hatch. The newly born snail is transparent, but not for long. As a rule, his first act is to eat his discarded egg case. The first meal pro- vides lime aud other essential food elements. It also makes his body opaque and he loses his see-through appearance. This tiny creature is on his own and well able to make IBS way in his small world. He needs plant and fungus food and knows how to find it. Even more, he needs a humid environment, and this too he knows to provide for himself. His soft, clammy skin has mucous glands that ooze secre- tions on his back and under- side. The sole of his one long foot oozes the slime on which he slides along. The secretions on his back harden to form his shell. New layers are added at the base. As he grows, the shell is en- larged to house his bigger body. After two years, his personal hideaway has about five grace- ful whorls, usually iin a clock- wise coil. The snail is now fully grown. The shell is completed, though he may model and re- model teeth around the base to keep out large insects. If you study the shell of an adult snail, you may trace past events in his life. When times are bad, the shell additions are narrow ridges. Grooves that arc close together and gritted with dirt were built during periods of hunger. Perhaps there were food shortages. But more like- ly there were droughts or cold periods. Then it was necessary for the snail to retire inside his shell and seal the opening with a papery door. The widest shell grooves are built during well- fed periods of activity. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Shira Burack, age 10, of Downsview, Ontario, for her question: Why did they build the Great Wall of China? Human history, sad to say, is a long list of bloody wars and plundering invasions. About 000 years ago, Europe was ter- rorized by the plundering Vi- kings. About years ago, Mongol tribes of the Gobi desert set forth on plundering raids into Europe amd Asia. The Chi- nese called them Tartars. The Europeans borrowed this name because it was like then- word for Hades, the mythical realm of dark terror. Long before this, the Chinese had built several smallish walls to keep out invaders. About 589 A.D., they decided to join these in one long wall to keep out the Tartars. The enormous project took several centuries. But at last this Great Wall of China zig-zagged for miles. Its sturdy stone sides stand 23 feet sheltering a high road 15 feet wide. Every 200 or 300 yards there are higher fortified tow- ers, where soldiers once watch- ed and waited to defend China from the Tartars.

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) MPs exclwnge insults on vote OTTAWA (CP) MPs pelted one another with insults in the Commons Thursday over voting irregularities that occmved the day before. In a prelude to an angry de- bate about a government move to cut off discussion of its tax bill, Conservative House Leader G. W. Baldwin brought the vot- ing matter up on a question oi privilege. He said the behavior of some government members during a vote on a Conservative motion Wednesday had been "nothing short of scandalous." The incident referred to was a Conservative move to embar- rass the government by defeat- ing it on a motion while the House was sitting as a. commit- tee considering the govern- ment's tax change bill. The scheme worked better than its planners could have hoped. The Conservatives, with the Alberta universities 'confused' EDMONTON (CP) Alberta universities need a clearer un- derstanding of and an expanded role for continuing education programs, says a 127 page study by three Saskatchewan professors. The report by Harold R. Ba- ker, Glen M. "Farrcll and W. Brock Whale of the University of Saskatchewan said Alberta universities are "uncertain" and "confused" about continu- ing education's future needs and roles. Tiie University of Alberta's general faculties council made I the report public. It was com- I missioned by the Alberta uni- j vcrsities co ordinaUng coun- cil and was completed last sum- mer. The report said the three uni- versities should study the rec- ommendations, then prepare their own briefs and engage in follow up conferences to es- tablish clear guidelines for con- tinuing education at universi- ties "for the remainder of this decade." One recommendation urged the province's Universities Act he amended to define more spe- cifically the responsibilities of universities in the field. An- other suggested that continuing education he equal in impor- tance to regular campus teach- ing. The universities should set their priorities according to community needs in planning part-time programs, bolh de- gree and non degree, and in continuing professional educa- tion, support of the NDP, succeeded by a vote of 44 to 42 in having the debate adjourned, defeating the Liberals who were sup- ported by two Social Creditors. While their success with such a small gesture of protest might not have received great atten- tion, they got a bonus when sev- eral government members sneaked into the House after the vote had been under Commons rules. Not only did at least a half- dozen of them steal in, but when committee chairman Prosper Boulanger asked those who had entered illegally to abstain from voting, only one of Gibson tworth) complied. After Mr. Baldwin made his point Thursday that, by his count, eight Liberals had vio- lated the rules, Speaker Lucien Lamoureux said the incident had been one "which we all de- plore." Florian Cote then rose on his own point of privilege, saying that at least six opposition members ted also sneaked in after Wednes- day's motion had been put. J. Patrick Nowlan napolis Valley) charged that Mr. Cote was "a disgraceful and other Conservatives chimed in with similar com- ments. Mr. Nowlan said the only op- position member who had en- tered late was Robert Thomp- son and he had left immediately without voting. The Canadian Press reporter present for the vote saw no other opposition members be- sides Mr. Thompson enter after the motion had been put. Mr. Baldwin also apologized for his party's behavior during the incident Wednesday, when memo pads and other paper was hurled onto the Commons floor from the Conservative benches. 143 persons sickened by French cheese WASHINGTON (AP) The Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday an im- porter is recalling a second type of French cheese in response to complaints that the cheeses have sickened 143 persons, three severely enough to require hos- pital treatment. Tire cheese identified in the FDA's latest public warning was brie sold under the Le Ro- itclct label. The FDA announced Friday Le Roilclct camcmbert cheese was being recalled. The FDA said increased com- plaints and the discovery o( harmful bnrtorlj) ill both the brio and camcmbert. cheese prompted the second recall. OUR FAAtlW WA5 POIN6 FINE WITHOUT VOU!
