Wage boost awarded Australian workers MELBOURNE (Renter) Four million Australian workers will benefit from a six-per-cent jeneral wage increase awarded Monday by the Australian arbi- iration commission. It was the .argest wage increase granted by the commission in the U years it has operated as the country's independent arbitrator of labor-employer disputes. Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Julie Pike, age 12, of Mariette, Georgia, for her question: What is the Hosetta Stone? The message itself is merely a tribute to a long-ago pharoah. The Rosetta Stone on which it is carved is important because the tribute is repeated in three languages. When it wras found, the meaning of the first and oldest script had been forgotten in the dim past. The script of the third repetition was recent and well known. It provided the key to the first. The Ro- setta Stone not only translated one of mankind's first written languages it revealed how its ancient picture-writing pro- gressed logically to phonetic letters. C Napolean's army was in Egypt and his men knew the value of ancient relics. In 1739, an inscribed tablet was un- earthed in the Rosetta area of the Nile Delta. We are not sure who found it, but the Rosetta Stone became famous over- night. There were countless in- scriptions in an ancient style written on papyrus and carved on stone. But" at that time scholars were unable to trans- late them. They were written in stylized pictures called hi- eroglyphs and their meanings were forgotten when this an- cient written language pro- gressed to more sophisticated letters and words. One look at the Rosetta Stone told scholars that its three in- scriptions repeated the same text in ancient hieroglyphs, in the later Demotic language and again in well-known Greek words. They assumed that it would be easy to use the Greek This should be a rather nor- mal, enjoyable day. Deal with regular work in good humor, co-operate without quibbling. Gather friends for a lively eve- ning. LIliltA (Sept. 23 Oct. Be alert; a timely word from an old friend can get you back on the track.

Quiet de- termination to excel does suc- ceed eventually. Dor-'t wear out your friends on the way up. Deal gently with loved ones. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Give yourself a one-day vacation if feasible. If you must work, start early but quit as soon as you can. Make it a picnic sort of a day. CAI'IHCORN (Dec. 22 Jim. Material instincts now guide you more surely than fig- ures on paper. You are faced with serious business. Even petty deals set a pattern for the future; think large. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb.

But the famous stone also held the secret of how and why man's early picture-words graduated to written lan- guages. It was 23 years before the riddle was solved. The famous tablet is a table- top slab of black, hammer-hard basalt three feet nine inches long, two feet four and a half inches wide and 11 inches thick. The text is repeated in three horizontal columns, all neatly inscribed by master craftsmen. The Greek transla- tion revealed it to be a public tribute to Ptolomy V Epiphan- us in the year 196 B.C. In rec- ognition for this good pharoah's generous favors to his people and priests he was declared a divine god. The same tender eri- bute was repeated in the De- niotic writing, then popular in Egypt. Surely these clues could solve the riddle of the same text in hieroglyphics. For years, the scholars tried to match the written words to those ancient pictures. Then a French student named Jean Francois Champollion saw why this matching game led no- where. When the hieroglyphs progessed to written language, the old pictures were not used as words. They were given phonetic sounds and stream- lined to form letters. The for- gotten picture-writing of years ago finally was decipher- ed in 1822. Scholars at last could read its ancient inscrip- tions on papyrus and stone. Chantpollion's tedious task was a work of genius. He learn- ed Coptic and other old lan- guages to find his clues. His genius led him to explore the minds of those ancient scribes who gradually gave phonetic sounds to- their pictures and used them as letters to build the sounds of words.

(Cupi'i'lgiit Chronicle Publishing Co. 1970) him is a pouch or pocket pro- truding from the intestine. Oc- casionally, diverticula occur in the small intestine but more often they are of the colon. They do not cause cancer. About five to 10 per cent oE people over 40 have divertictt- !a. The pocket is formed when a portion of the wall of the colon weakens and gives way. Apparently, this is the result of prolonged difficulty with spasm of the bowel and ed, irregular contractions of the colon. Diverticula sometimes cause severe bleeding into the bowel. [n one out of five people with diverticula one or more of ;hem become inflamed. In other >eople they may never cause any serious problems. (In medi- cine inflammation is indicated by the ending "itis." THUS in- flammation of the appendix is appendicitis and inflammation of a diverticulum is diverticu- litis.) The inflamed diverticulum behaves a great deal like an inflamed appendix. Since diver- ticula are more often on the left side of the colon, the pain is usually in the left lower side of the abdomen. Sometimes there is an associated mild diarrhea. There may be a fever and, like appendicitis, there is an increase in the number of white blood cells that can be measured by blood count. H the inflamed diverticulum doesn't develop a hole through the intestinal wall, antibiotics and providing fluids by vein for a days may be sufficient treatment. A rupture, an ab- scess or other complications usually require surgery. Many people who have an ir- ritable colon are told they have diverticula. Spasm of adjacent circular muscle bands in the colon cause the appearance of numerous small pockets of the colon as seen by x-ray studies. The irritable colon also gives rise to crampy abdominal pain. Unless a complication like in- flammation or bleeding occurs, the treatment of diverlicula of the colon and irritable or spas- tie colon is essentially the same. The goal is to decrease spasm of the colon. A good pro- gram to train the bowl is neces- sary. This means regular bowel habits to avoid the constipation problem. It is not necessary to have a daily bowel movement. Plenty of fluids should be taken and the diet should contain food that leaves adequate resi- due in the bowel such as cer- eals and vegetables. Highly sea- soned or spicy foods should be avoided. They are irritants and increase spasm of the colon in people with this problem. Some people with severe problems can benefit from bulk- producing laxatives. AH other laxatives should be avoided.

South opened the bidding with one club and West cvercalled with one spade. Worth had close to an opening bid himself, and was war- ranted in competing freely with two diamonds which was forcing for one round. When South warned that he might have a minimum, by re- bidding two no .trump, North would have been more pru- dent had he temporized with a call of three clubs. The delayed raise would have given South the opportunity to check out, if he were so inclined. West opened the king nf spades, dummy played'ths nine, East followed with th8 deuce and five. West continued with queen and declarer held off again, discarding a heart from dummy. He feared that if his ace were released too soon and East held a quicfc entry in the form of the king of diamond: or the ace of clubs, a spade return thru Souih's ten would enable West to cash out the setting tricks in that suit. When the queen of spades held, West was reluctant to lead another round for fear of establishing an extra trick for the declarer. He shifted to a heart. The four was played from dummy and East put in the jack to forca out South's ace. A diamond was !M amj declarer finessed N o r t h 'a jack. The queen of clubs was returned and ducked. Tha nine of clubs was led to South's jack and West held off again. Tlie diamond fi- nesse was repeated by put- ting in dummy's queen. On the ace of diamonds, East discarded- a heart and South the five of clubs. A fourth round of diamond! was led on which declarer shed the ten of hearts. West was in with the king of diamonds, however, after cashing the ace of clubs, ha was obliged to lead away from the J-8-6 of spades into the declarer's ace-ten and tho latter cashed out his black winners. In all, the defense tool; two spades, one diamond nnd club. MV MV OTHER i BABY DON'T' LEAVE WHAT'S THAT YOU SAID, MRS. ;l FL1MTNO5E?
