Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 LETHBRIDGE HERALD 1973 Your horoscope By Jeam Dixon Ask Andy DEC. 7 Your birthday An es- sentially conservative course is natural perhaps camouflaged a bit by fancy talk. Relationships- tend to some require constant are dis- turbed by rivals or your own competitive urges. Today's natives usually have a rather definite feeling for the shape of things to aren't com- fortable with the knowledge. ARIES 21-Aprll Just because you are not following wild advice doesn't mean you must argue about it. Abide by the amenities of civilization. Push ahead with determination. TAURUS 20-May Wind up your work week as early as is possible Personal concerns arise which take ex- tra with indication of satisfaction in doing. GEMINI 21-June Live m the present moment. If you can just enjoy the or rather what is within reach without fretting over dis- tant or theoretical all will be well CANCER 21-July A rare mood for taking a risk is hard to turn aside. Beware the persuasive individual try- ing to rush you into unac- customed speculative investments. LEO 23-Aug. Op- timism pervades may induce you to overextension of your lead to scattering of energy Avoid extra purchases until you see the way to pay spot cash. VIRGO 23-Sept. It is better to proceed in an orderly each deal fully settled before you move onto the next Some matters thus will not be reached today or this week. LIBRA 23-Oct. Impulses toward action are generally premature It's just as well they're mixed Defer action until you get more facts Stay busy with routines. SCORPIO 23-Nov. Take on only what you feel you can get done today Arrange to get the full reward for following your own program rather than share in projects where you lack control. SAGITTARIUS 22- Dec. A once-over-hghtly attitude brings unwanted side effects. Pause for a deep then get busy on those important details that have been skipped. CAPRICORN 22-Jao. Make use of today's favorable tide to set a upward pace for increased productivity. Install new use new simplify what you do. AQUARIUS 20-Feb. Your propensity for being the visiting expert can get you into hot water with everybody. You don't know all the ins and outs of a given situation. PISCES 19-March Promises are all too abundant and unlikely to be feasible to especially those demanded of you. You are out some expense for in any case. The Chicago Tribune TELLING THE TIME Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Rosanne age of for her ques- How did they calculate time in ancient It's fun to imagine what life was like in ancient days. But none of us want to go back and live perhaps years when people began to notice that time passes by. We have clocks to tick off the moments and calendars to note the dates. Our early ancestors had to figure out ways to do these things for themselves. And their inventions led step by step to our convenient clocks and calendars. The earliest peoples wandered the world in search of hunting catchable animals and gathered edible plants. We cannot say what first made them notice that time was passing. Perhaps they saw children grow bigger and adults become aged. These things would make them aware of the relentless Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I read in a new book that diabetes and low blood sugar co-exist in an individual. Is this possible7 If so please explain. Dear Reader I am familiar with the statement in the book you cited Like many other statements in this it is very misleading It is also a half truth. The problem begins when the mechanism to release in- sulin becomes faulty This may occur in earlier stages of diabetes When a person eats a lot of sweets normally the body releases a lot of insulin to help process the sweets and keep the blood glucose sugar from rising too high The in- sulin helps move the glucose sugar into the cells where it is processed to either energy or converted to fat Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.

For de- tails of the game nearest contact your local duplicate bridge club. All bridge players are welcome. South was guilty of charity of a different order on to- day's hand. After his partner had opened the bidding with one no the final con- tract depended virtually on how many aces and kings North held. Four clubs was the Gerber in- quiring about aces. The re- sponse showed'the three miss- ing and South checked on kings. On learning that his side was missing two South was content to play a small slam in his long suit. West led a low and declarer saw no harm in finessing dummy's queen. East won -the king and re- turned the suit to the ace. Declarer tried to set up the club suit by cashing the king and ace and ruffing a club high. the suit failed to split so dummy was entered with the ace of spades for a diamond finesse. West produced the king and that meant down one. Declarer was unlucky in that so many chances went but he really had no one to blame but himself for failing to make the contract. Consider what happens if South plays a low heart from dummy to the first trick. East wins the but he cannot attack dummy's heart entry for that would be lead- ing into the jaws of the ace- queen tenace and so provide declarer with a discard. His best attack is to shift to a diamond. Declarer again scorns a finesse and goes up with the ace. The king of clubs is a club is led to the ace and a club is ruffed high. The king and ace of trumps are ending in and another club is ruffed setting up the table's fifth club. Declarer draws the last enters' dummy with the ace of hearts and dis- cards his remaining diamond on the fifth so fulfilling his slam contract. This line of play depends only on clubs dividing no worse than and is superi- or to relying on winning one of two finesses. The diabetic has a problem in not forming enough insulin That is why the blood glucose level rises too high. The first stage of this may be when the pancreas still manufactures insulin but has trouble form- ing it fast enough to meet the load of glucose entering the blood The result is that the glucose is and the body uses other mechanisms to start lowering the blood glucose level when the expected insulin is the blood glucose level is already lowered. The insulin is no longer needed in such large quantities The excess insulin causes the blood glucose level to fall too much and causes the symptoms of low blood glucose sugar This problem is not at all on the same basis as most of the functional low blood glucose sugar problems It is actually a manifestation of a disease of the insulin forming mechanism it is not associated with an excess formation of just a faulty timing mechanism. I believe it is wrong to imply that the two disorders are the same which they are not Dear Dr. Lamb About 15 years ago my father had part of his stomach removed because of an ulcer Should he watch the amount of cholesterol intake even with only part of his He says he doesn't have and he eats a lot of etc which contain cholesterol. He is also overweight. Could he be in any danger from Dear Reader we could be in danger The stomach has very little to do with fat or cholesterol. Nothing is absorbed from the stomach anyway. It mixes the liquifies it and breaks down protein with that acid- pepsin juice that is related to ulcers It is a storage reser- voir. Obviously your father has adjusted to his and his as in other enters his small intestine and is absorbed normally. That means' the excess excess saturated fat and cholesterol are processed just as in other people He has ex- actly the same risk that any other overweight American male has who eats too much of everything and too much of the wrong in par- to the point of being overweight Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O.

These wanderers lived out- where the heavenly bodies pass overhead in plain sight. They noticed the chang- ing phases of the moon and the different starry constellations that change with the changing seasons. We base our modern time system on these heaven- ly motions And early wanderers also consulted that big basic clock in the sky. The stars told them the changing the changing moon gave them the lunar month. The time of day became more important when they settled down to herd their own cattle and grow their own crops. This called for regular daily chores and regular daily meals. It was logical to clock these schedules by the sun's journey over the daytime sky. The sun divided their day in half when it reached its highest point overhead. The first man-made time keeping devices used the differing shadows cast by the traveling sun It started as a sturdy stick set upright in the ground. Its shadow pointed a moving finger westward in the morning and eastward in the afternoon When its shadow was it show- ed the moment of mid-day. early astron- omers partitioned the day into minutes and day into hours.minutes and seconds. At last it was possi- ble to invent devices to mark off periods of passing time during the day or night There were many such but basically all of them relied on something that progresses at a steady rate In ancient one pop- ular time keeper was a tall candle marked in inches. As it burned down inch by it marked the passage of the passing hour. One device measured time by the drip- dripping of water from one container into another And another measured time by how long it takes sand to sift between two glass globes. We still use this clever bygone invention and call it an egg timer. Questions asked by c ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box. Huntington California 92648. Chronicle Publishing Co.
