Forget about bed res I; tests prove it harmful generally are inde- pendenl. ambitious with little luck in finding a comfortable place in society. ARIES (March 19 So much is going on you not keep track of it all. What you do hear is only a small part of the stay. Your care of joint money may be question- ed; have your facts ready. TAUIIl'S (April 20-May Your logic is good; if your sympathy is equally so, your relationships can be rich. Busi- ness and personalities mix no better than ever, so keep them In reference to your body, there is a lot to the idea that "if you don't use it, you lose It." "And that applies to all of the body. Thus bed rest and physical inactivity can be harmful. Before the. space program there were only two well-known studies each of only about a half-dozen men on the ef- fects of bed rest in healthy persons. other information was from sick people and bed rest. Imagine! The medical profession has been recommen- ing bed rest for almost every ailment known to man and yet we had very little information about its effects on the body. Space doctors were interest- ed in bed rest because it has things in common with the weightless conditions'' oc- curring during space flights. Since the astronauts were healthy people we needed to know what bed rest did to healthy people, not sick pa- tients. We found bed red did a lot most of it bad. Just for starters, the horizontal position caused the body to rid itself of four to fire pounds of normal water content within .24 hours. This same mechanism explains part of the weight loss ob- served in astronauts during space flight. After the loss of the normal body water and consequently part of the bleed volume the bed rest subjects tended to faint when they got up. Again this has been seen after space flights and also in patients af- ter periods of bed rest. The loss of water affects the way the heart and circulation works and causes weakness. This is quickly reversed usually within 43 hours after resuming normal upright activity. That isn't all bed rest does either. The bone marrow that normally generates new blood cells slows down, eventually causing decrease in red blood cells. Then when you get up, a lot. of tha red cells are destroyed becuase of increased activity. The bone marrow takes awhile to get started at the right level again, so a tem- porary anemia results. In addition to these changes in time, calcium is lost from the bones. If it accumulates in the kidney, stones may form. These changes and others oc- cur irrore slowly from simple inactivity for example, just sitting. Office workers often feel fatigued at the end of the day because of inactivity. It isn't a cocktail and couch they need to get rid of fatigue but exercise. A simple cold or minor ill- ness is often complicated by "taking two aspirins and 'going to bed." Sitting up would be better. After observing the problems caused by bed rest, I am con- vinced that the bed should be used for only certain serious illnesses, a proper amount, of sleep or as a recreational fa- cility.

The strip down Uie middle sometimes is called No-man's-land to mean something else. On a well-run slup, each sailor has his spe- cial duties.
