Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Z2 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - Friday, Doeember 31, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SATURDAY, JAN. 1 Your birthday today: Diversification becomes a key to success this coming year, although you have to keep all branches of your program in an uncom pounded genera] field. Self-improvement remains essential. Today's natives live a very subjective version of life, have vivid, sharp memories of significant moments ARIES (March 21-April 19): Whatever you have been provoking people to do tends to come to pass now, just when you least expect it. TAURUS (April 20-MaV 20); Belated returns or replacements of lost or loaned possessions are possible. Where you have borrowed, now is an excellent time to repay. GEMINI (May 21-.Junc 20): Old friends disagree on details. You can arbitrate by gentle suggestion only. Review your financial arrangements. CANCER (June 21-July 22): This weekend many strange chickens come home to roost, some much chastened by wayfaring experience. Receive ail with compassion. LEO (July 23-Aug 22): Resolutions are better taken on your birthday but you could well review and renew yours now, updating to fit today's conditions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): During this favorable period sort out your complex feelings about long-term home conditions. Doing something about them requires more planning. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your resolutions have already been made by your past deci- sions and the way you have tried to project them into reality. Be easy on yourself. SCORPIO (Oct, 23-Nov. 21): Be indulgent of a bright idea that' comes to you. It is part of the wave of your future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Once you've caught up with your rest, expect ysurself to be full of inspiration. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The first order of your afternoon is to leave off an old, bad habit, declutter your life. You are drawn toward something you've never tried before. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19): Like as not you have a rather good view of the situation you'd like to enjoy but a great deal must be achieved yet to bring it to reality. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): For once an early start isn't the most desirable course. By the time you begin, plenty of loose ends are to be collected and some discarding to do. SUNDAY, JAN. 2 Your birthday today: Novel solutions to all questions pop up this year. Expedients come so readily that you must analyze constantly to avoid straying from j'our true long - term goals. Today's natives tend to seek extreme personal experiences. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): No adjustment you make now will suit more than one or two people, so quietly do what appeals to you most. TAURUS (April 29 - May 20): What you have gathered, hold onto, add to your reserves. What has eluded your search, put out of your mind. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Young man died of heart disease Dear Dr. Lamb - What would cause a young fellow 44 to die of a heart attack called occlusive arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease? He came home from work and started coughing and died. He had lost about 10 pounds in two weeks before. He smoked cigarettes a lot and drank lots of black coffee and drank milk and ate lots of eggs. Also his diet was poor, lots of hot dogs and hamburgers. My mother passed away with hardening of the arteries at age 66. The doctor says it is hereditary and all of us should see the doctor. What kind of tests should we ask for because he says it doesn't show on an x-ray. There are 10 of us left. He was next to the youngest. He was a news-paped printer. Dear Reader - You have described a lot of tilings in your brother's living habits that are associated with a greater frequency of heart attacks. Cigarettes, too much coffee, fat foods and foods high in cholesterol, specifically eggs. I would guess he was overweight if he had been on a diet and lost 10 pounds in two weeks. That also is the wrong way to diet and often does more harm than good. Slow gradual' weight reduction is much better. Being a newspaper printer hf probably had a fairly sedentary job and didn't get enough exercise. I wish there were enough room in the column to tell you all the things you need to know about smoking, diet and exer- cise as related to preventing heart disease. Since I can't, the best I can recommend is to obtain a copy of my book, "Your Heart and How to Live With It," from the Viking Press, 625 Madison Ave., New York, N.Y. 10022. It was written to try to help people like you who need information on how to prevent heart attacks. It is true that unless some special x-rays are taken after dye is injected into the arteries of the heart, that you can't see the disease on x-rays. A good general examination plus certain chemical tests to tell how the body is handling fat and how much cholesterol is in the body are important. So is an electrocardiogram to test the electrical function of the heart. Heart attacks are more common in some families and these people particularly need to follow a program designed to prevent them. Dear Dr. Lamb - I have di-verticulosis and your column has been a great help. I have been taking three tablespoons of molasses plus a dash of sweet cream in a cup of hot water before breakfast for some time. It does seem to help my condition. I have been told lately that molasses has a serious side effect on diverticulo-sis and on the intestines. Will you please comment on this? Dear Reader - Enjoy your molasses, it is good for you. It is also a good source of iron in your diet. It won't hurt you at all. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN Ic 1�7l!

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) (Loofc /or answers Monday I Oxbow lakes Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Iinda Proud, age 13, of Foremost, Alberta, for her question: What are oxbow lakes? In pioneer days, sturdy oxen were used to pull wagons, plows and to perform other muscular farm duties. Their broad shoulders were fitted with yokes under large, U-stoaped wooden frames called oxbows. Oxbow lakes were named for these wooden oxen yokes. Many of them are U-shaped. But others are curved crescents.   * Whatever its shape, an oxbow lake is the abandoned child of a lazy river. It is born when a great river reaches a large, level plain, covered with deposits of crumbly soil. The land tips genty toward the sea, but only the flowing water knows that it is tilted at all. Steep slopes make a stream run faster. Here it takes its own sweet time, lazily swishing its muddy petticoats from side to side in curving loops. Several things happen to this lazy river. The water in the channel travels at different speeds, somewhat like long hair blowing in the breezes. As it swerves around a bend, the stream flows faster on the outside of the curve and lags behind on the inside. Along the outer bank, the faster stream has more strength to erode muddy gravel and dig a deeper channel. This swirling water swishes its eroded debris to the centre of the channel and across to the opposite bank. Alone the inside of the curve, the river is shallower and the bank is clogged with soggy mud. In time, the muddy deposits in the channel become as high as the river's banks. Then they form a dam in the path of the flowing water. But the great river must continue forward. It is pushed by the current from behind and coax-ad from the gentle slope toward the sea. It solves the problem by using its flowing energy to dig itself a new channel. When the river is choked in this way, the main stream usually flows around the ftiuddy dam and digs a shortcut across the curve. The new channel may be a gentler curve. The muddy deposits are left behind the old curve and the new chan- nel. The old bend in the river is sealed off from the main stream. This abandoned child of the meandering river becomes an oxbow lake. It is a narrow lake, perhaps a mile or ten miles long. If the old curve swung around in almost a circle, the lake will be a ring with a bite on one side. If the curve was gentle, the lake will be shaped tike a than, crescent moon Many of these severed bends in the river are U-shaped, somewhat like the oxbow yokes worn by draft oxen. * * * Like all lakes, an oxbow is a body of fresh water surrounded by land. like all lakes, it lives only as long as supply of water lasts. An oxbow is not refilled by springs and streams, so its waiter soon evaporates. Mud and choking weeds gradually turn it into a swampy hollow. Finally all its water disappears and the old oxbow becomes a patch of fertile soil. Questions asxea by cnlldien of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
