Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 1HI UTHBRIDGf HERALD Widntidoy, Denmber I, 1971- Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon THURSDAY, DEC. 0 Your birthday today: Prag- matic experience forces the coming year of growth and development as you discard imsucccssful ventures or change plans In simpler, more vwtliy courses. Trial and er- ror is. most of the time, the only feasible approach. To- day's natives tend to tako risks most of us wouldn't, succeeding a little more of- ten tlian would be expectable. ARIES (March 21 April Moving about seems easier than staying put. If you must remain where you are, change your attitudes and perhaps the ground rules. TAURUS (April M May Listen acutely, use the short cut or special opportunity as soon as you see it.

"The need to distort reality by resorting to drug dependency may occur in Uie physician jus as it does among others who arc unable to resolve their problem: Dr. Ralph B Little writes in the Dec. 6 issue of tlie Journal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Little of the departmen of psychiatry at the Medics College of Pennsylvania say doctors' problems also are com pounded by a "false sense o jnmunity" and a failure to rec ognize that any drug may leae 10 to 20 times more frequenl than io oilier classes of U.S adults.

The bidding was the same. It both .tables. Even .with fa- corable vulnerability condi- tions, East's overcall of one heart is somewhat question- able, altho it did serve to jet his partner off to the most effective defense against final contract of three no trump with South u the de- clarer. West epened the three o[ hearts, and East put up the Wng to return the seven. At one table, declarer consid- ered the possibilities. West's lead of i tow heart-as well ss his raise during the auo to mark him with an honor in the suit. South finally decided to play East for the ace and king of bearts and West for the jack. In an attempt to block communications, declarer played the queen of hearts at trick two. Had his analysil of the heart holdings been correct, the play of UK queen would have blocked the suit When the diamond finesse is totem subsequently and loses to Eut't king, he cannot cash the ace of hearts without dropping partner's Jack and thereby establishing ten. If East leads a low heart to West, the latter is in, but has no way of reaching East again, and the heart mil Is retired from As Butters actually devti- 1aeen tearts, West put up the and returned the four. East cashed the jack and cleared the suit by dis- lodging South'! ten. When East got in again with king of diamonds, be cubed UK setting trick with the nine of hearts. It would not hare availed declarer to put in the .ten at at trick two, (or the final result -would hive been the same. On a third round ef the suit, East'j nine drives out the queen and two tricks are taken by the defense .when the diamond linessc loses. At the other tabte, ScuUt came ini with an effeclive countermeasure but en a different line of reasoning. When the seven of hearts returned by East at trick two, declarer merely ducked altogether, and this play actually succeeded in blocking the suit West cov- ered South'i ten of hearts with the on the next round, but now lie bad m Starts to return. West exited with the of spades and North played the ace. The closed hand was entered with the ace of clubt to put the queen of diamondi thru. East was in with the king, however South won the heart return with the queen end claimed the balance for nine tricks, having lost three and one diamond. South reasoned as follows: In order to raise hit partner to two hearts, Weit appeared marked with one of the miss- ing red suit honors. A nigh heart Appeared the most likely possibility, Inasmuch as the king of diamondi would not appear of much value to West since it is lo- cated in front of the diamond bidder. If West has either the ace or king of faarts, then the only way to block the suit is to play a tmall at trick two. Observe that South would irtill have succeeded, bad East held the king of tttarts and West be separated and coaxed t1 produce flowering bulbs in tw or three years.

D. throat requres care Dear Dr. Lamb Would you ell me if scarlet fever is the ame as a strep throat and if Te rash that develops will scale nd the scales can give it to nother person? Today scarlet ever isn't so dangerous as it was 40 and 50 years ago. Dear Reader A "strep iroat" means an infection of throat with bacteria called xeptococcus. There are sev- ral types of bacteria in this ;roup. The toxin or poison ormed by some types of these acteria makes a person ill. )ne manifestation of the illness can be the rash of scarlet fev- Thus the only difference be- wecn some forms of strep in- ection and scarlet fever is the ash. The same streptococcus nfection is just as contagious with or without the rash. Rheu- .atic fever followed by rheu- latic heart disease and kidney isease can be a complication f "strep" infections. You are right, scarlet fever isn't so dangerous now as it nee was nor nearly so com- lon. Forty years ago wo didn't avc sulfa drugs, penicillin or host of other antibiotics that ontrol or eliminate streptococ- infections. All "strep" throats should be xeated to prevent the likelihood subsequent problems, includ- ng heart disease. t- -f Dear Dr. Lamb I am a Oth grader and T am interest- d in the human heart and its many functions. Ono thing puz- zles me. Will the human heart burn if the body is burned, such as in cremation? I have tried to look it up in various heart books and encyclopedias but no answer to my questidn. Dear Reader That is a pretty grizzly question. Yes, it burns. The heart is made up mostly of muscle, it is a differ- ent kind of muscle than in your arm, but they have many things in common. The same is true of animal hearts. The beef steak and roasts you eat are mostly muscle and beef heart is muscle. As you know, both can be cooked and eaten. Usually anything that can be cooked can be burned any housewife will attest to that. Bear Dr. Lamb I would like to know if it he pos- WRE NOT PESSf FLEMIM5, SWEETIE!

Dear Reader Of course. Talk it over with I he surgeon in advance. Commonly, a plas- tic surgeon will use adrenalin injected into the skin area where the sxargery will be per- formed for the purpose of con- trolling or preventing any ap- preciable bleeding. The test re- sults are obtained if loss of blood can he prevented. If the blood loss is mini- mized, there is no need for a blood transfusion.
