Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, February I, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, FEB. 2 application just yet, and you Your birthday today: There have to share or teach as i- so much to learn you have much as you can to assure fu- litile chance of making a full ture co-operation. Today's na- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Height increaser claims -phoney Dear Dr. Lamb - I have read and seen many ads concerning increasing your height. The two main aspects of increasing your height according to the ad is to increase the cartilage area between the discs of the spinal cord and increasing the basal metabolism in order to stimulate bone and ligament growth. This ad states only a few minutes a day over a short period can increase your height permanently and safely. I would like your comments and advice on this subject concerning the soundness of the ad's proposal of increasing your height. Dear Reader - Avoid it like the plague. Unfortunately there are many advertisements available to the general public that recommend procedures, methods or products which do rot do anything for the individual except relieve him of his money. In other instances, some of the items or procedures rec- Today history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Feb. 1, 1973 . . . Vidkun Quisling was made minister-president of Norway by the Germans 31 years ago today-in 1942- during the Second World War. He had attempted to seize power in 1940, when the Germans occupied the capital, but his government collapsed. When the Germans gave him power, he dissolved the constitution within a week and ruled as a personal dictator, attempting to turn Norway into a Nazi state and shipping about 1,000 Jews to the death camps. He was executed for treason after the war. 1952-West Germany ratified the Schuman Plan, joining five other European powers in the Coal and Steel Community. 1949-Hungary was pro-cls'med a people's republic. 1046-Trygve Lie, 49, of Norway, became the UN secretary-general. 1324-Britain recognized ^the g o v e r n m e n t of the S�S.S.R. 1904-The Dominion Railway Commission was established. ommended are downright dangerous. I'm sure that the ad really referred to increasing the size of the discs between the individual spinal vertebrae since the spinal cord is a continuous structure of nerves and is not interrupted with discs. There isn't any real way that the size of the cariilagenous areas between the spinal vertebrae can be significantly increased nor is there any indication that if it were possible that such a procedure would be in the best interest of one's health. There is a slight, variation in height each day which is related to the spaces between the vertebrae. But this is usually only about an inch or less. In (he morning when one first gets up one is usually the tallest. As the day wears on the discs are compressed slightly and a person may be an inch shorter. Some of the astronaut candidates I examined who were just over the height limitations used to exercise vigorously during the day trying to literally shrink and pass the height test at the end of the day. It didn't help and in the weightless state Some of the astronaut candidat I examined who were just over the height limitations used to exorcise vigorously during the day trying to literally shrink and pass the height test at the end of the day. It didn't help and in the weightless state they would be at their maximum height anyway. The problem was being short enough to fit into the space vehicle. As far as increasing basal metabolism to stimulate bone and ligament growth, this is a complete falsehood. The only way that increasing the metabolism will help to stimulate growth is in people who have a throid deficiency. It is true that thyroid and growth hormone work together to stimulate body growth but in normal, healthy people, giving additional thyroid or increasing their basal metabolism by artificial means will not do anything to stimulate their growth. I would be greatly concerned about obtaining any products from any ads of this sort for fear that they might actually be harmful to your health. A second gimmick used in advertising is to tell peopl they will be taller and the company is actually selling lifts to be placed inside the shoes. Anyone who's concerned about their height or growth problems should see a reputable physician. If you want to keep your health, avoid the advertisements and the quacks. tives are versatile, jacks-of-all-trades. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Relax as you pursue a steady, soft sell effort. Co-operation is abundant, perhaps even more than you are ready, to use. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Women have a field day. according to the soundness of their recent planning; men have an excellent business day. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): While you are winding up the workweek in good style, leave nothing of importance open for later revision; review your situation. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Persistence finally opens the way for you. Any help offered brings added threads of obligation for the future. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Today dawns lively and promising, better than the last few days. Improvise from present resources while leaving reserves untouched. VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sept. 22): Special projects fare better now. Have a genera! roundup to make sure you are not losing contact with people who can help. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Your most adventurous streak comes out strongly, and you find yourself taking "risks" you hadn't planned. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): A bold approach may get you much further along than you'd thought could be. Move quickly to consolidate any advance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be alert for financial progress. Successful past efforts become credentials for a further venture. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): The spur of the moment is as good a moving force as any. Pause for reflection, your intuition should provide answers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. IS): Achievement comes with determination on your part. Be persistent, once you know what is available and what you want of it. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): Seek advice, education, and be patient with the long stories that come along with it. Treat it all as personal. (1973, The Chicago Tribune) '. . ' .: :L...::" , . Ask Andy iiiwaiiiiiiiii! The moa bird Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Susan Uaczy, age 12, of Lethbridge, Alberta, for her question: What sort of bird is a moa? If you saw one of the giant moa birds, you might suspect that somebody invented him to scare the children. But, sad to say, human eyes never again will behold this great bird, or any of his lesser kinfolk. The entire family became extinct several centuries ago. Perhaps they were wiped out by hungry humans or perhaps they GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN �5 Wt, Tfie Cllcasa Trnin.* Both vulnerable. West deals.

But there is no doubt that they were responsible for most of the tragedy. However, other Polynesians made long vovaees .'"vc" the Pacific snrl many paid brief visits to New Zealand.
