Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, Deombtr 8, 1970 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon WEDNESDAY, DEC. 9 Your birthday today: He- vision, adjustment charac- terize your coming year, some of it in response to un- usual opportunity coming from outside. Earnings tend to increase as you switch from one specialty to a high- er one. You must include some salvage, transforma- tion of useless to useful. To- day's natives have sustained curiosity, like to be involved in bold, audacious deeds or the telling of them. ARIES (March 21-April Begin where you are now, pro- ceed with your own ideas (never mind the You fiascos of find some- how you're picking up more than your share of the ex- penses. TAURUS (April 20-May Think what you're doing aroum mechanical things. Pick up the threads of routine, expecting no particular recognition. Plan for a solitary evening of study. GEMINI (May 21-June Today includes at least one minor incident with a friendly surprise. Take a look around, see where you are, then catch up on neglected details, corres- pondence. CANCER (June 21-JuIy You now are sensitive to even helpful suggestions. Your sense of setback is subjective rather than reality. Give more time to younger people, family. LEO (July 23-Aug.

Don't .close window others, particularly your loved mature. Romantic interests In- volve lengthy conversations. PISCES (Fob. ID-March Rash decisions or impulsive ac- tions are the easiest to make and likely to bring quick re- grets. Discipline yourself to do the sensible tiling first. 1970, Ncivsilay, Inc. while yon sleep Dear Dr. Lamb Is ther any real benefit in sleepin with the window open in th winter? Dear Reader Not really I suspect that idea originatec when rooms were filled wit smoke from open fires and pol bellied stoves. After all, the as tronauts flew to the moon am back without opening a win dow. In areas with polluted ail it might be downright danger ous to open the window. Dear Dr. Lamb What your opinion of fasting citrus juices, oranges, grape fruits and vitamins for two or three days throughout one's life? Do you think this is a good way o cleansing our insides? Dear Reader I approve o: citrus juices and fruits. I do NOT approve of fasting except under a doctor's supervision and for a specific purpose. Our "insides" don't neec "cleansing." You can be too clean. The simple truth is that if we didn't have bacteria in the digestive tract, yeast and other fungi would caus- ing major problems. Tnis is certainly not the way to de- velop good bowel function. When the bowels function nor. mally there is no such thing as building up toxins in the bowel. The fasting routine you ask about is unsatisfactory for weight control. Even a large weight loss with fasting pro- g-rms under a doctor's suner- vHon usually do not result in a lasting change. Weight loss is bast accomplished by a con- sistent change in diet and liv- ing habits. Fasting causes weakness, a tendency to faint and wide- spread changes in body func- tion. I can't condemn it too severely as a self-prescribed treatment. Now comes a new term to join those ringing phrases of "The Great Society" and "The Affluent Society." It comes from a leading British special- ist in verereal diseases who states, "The mobile society is also the promiscuous society." Dr. Robert Catterall blames overseas vacations and the use of the oral contraceptives for the rise in veneral disease in Britain. Brace yourself for another round of spectacular artificial heart capers. Dr. Salvador Liotta of Madrid has an- nounced that a plastic heart is now available for human use. According to Liotta, the heart can be used for "an indefinite period" and is not intended as a stopgap until a heart trans- plant can be accomplished. Dr. Salvador Liotta is the brother of Dr. Domingo Liotta, who de- veloped the artificial heart used temporarily by Dr. Den- ton Cooley over a year ago. Is it a coincidence that the heart centre in Madrid has recently established ties with Dr. Cooley's Texas Heart Institute in Houston? ones.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. 22) Thoughtless friends create con fusion by doing something yo don't expect. Complacenc about finances isn't sensible to day. Check out your home an working space.

It was handsome little bird called cockatiel He is rather a rare pet and naturally his four fos Ler mothers want to learn they can about him. As a ma ter of fact, your faithful repor er had quite a job finding th right information about him Ajid, as usual, when tracin down the details on rare pets le turned up a few "bewares.' The cockttiel, alias the "cock is a native Australiar >ird. He is a cousin of the chal y parrots and macaws, th landsome cockatoos, the pretty ittle parakeets, the charm i n budgies tr.d lovebirds. All thes musual birds are classified in he order Psittaciformes meaning the parrot clan. They lave strong, hooked parro leaks and four parrot wo in front and two behind These feet are excellent grip >ers and some parrots use hem to hold their food and sven to crack open tough nuts The cockatiel and severa ither smallish parrots, however lo not use their sturdy hands is knives and forks. Our rare ittle visitor from Australia measures about 13 inches from tip of his sturdy beak to lie tip of his slender tail. The ittle beauty wears a feathery rest on his head. Most of his leat satiny plumage is grey, ac- ented with snow-white patches n his wings. His face, head and fancy crest are yellow. He com- pletes his colorful costume with a pair of yellowish red ear muffs. Since he is such a rare Am- erican pet, most likely he was taken from his ancestral home in the Australian grasslands. There he lived freely with a P.ock of friends and relatives. Maybe they shared their terri- tory with flocks of wild budgies. During the daytime, the feath- ery groups fly off in search of seeds, grains and other vegeta- tion on the paiTot menu. They are chatty all the time, using a noisy language of whistles, shrieks and screams. At night they roost in shrubs where in springtime the parents build their nests. The charming budgie has be- come a famous world wide pet. Given the same loving care, the cockatiel- could be equally charming. However, he is a re- cent immigrant to America and there are sensible rcgulat ions about bringing in unusual pets from abroad. Members of the parrot family have been known to infect their owners with a couple of dread diseases. So be- ware. To be on the safe side, check to make sure that your little darling was held in quar- antine icng enough to guarantee him a clean bill of health. Another warning concerns those ecology minded people in faraway Australia. They are determined to protect their am- azing wildlife from pet raiders who are eager to carry their cherished animals off to other lands. Andy could not find out whether their stern laws apply to your little darling and his kinfold. But if it's all right to have him he is almost sure to become a treasured member of your family if you pamper him as you would a budgie.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1970) Postal LANCELOT-By Coker Penn LONDON (OP) Canada in tends to fashion its nationa postal code along the hies adopted by Britain and may eventually establish an inde pendent post office corporation somewhat along the existing British pattern. This was disclosed by Cana- dian officials yesterday as Jean-Pierre Cote, minister re- sponsible for the Canadian posl office, continued a tour of the British system. John Mackay, Cote's deputy, said the Canadian postal code mil be ready for experiment' operations in 1971 with Ottawa as the site for the first coding. He anticipated that six digits a combination of let- .ers and be used. Once the Ottawa experimental operation begins working smoothly, the code will be ap- plied nationally, possibly by 1973. COMPUTERIZE SORTING The Canadian system will computerize sorting to the point vhere the letter can be directed o a specific part of a postman's walk. British postal officials maintain their system already does that work. The British ode combines letters and fig- ures. Cote and his group arrived in London last week amid Britain's iig political uproar over the fir- ng of Lord Hall as chairman of he independent Post Office Cor- loration. Hall accused the Con- ervative government of "rap- ing" the post office while Chris- opher Chaiaway, minister of and telecommunications, old Parliament Hail had bc- ome unsuitable and erratic. The Canadian post office Is urrently a branch of govern- ment with legislation in Parlia- ment designed to give it once more full government depart- ient status. But officials are looking to tl ay when the Canadian post 01 in becom n independent body to give lore protection from politics ifluence.
