Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - THE UTHBRIDG! HERALD - Saturday, February 3, 1973 By JEANE DIXON SUNDAY, FEB. 1 Your birthday today: �gs on a sustained exercise of our ethical and esthetic judgment. Relationships slide uneventfully into the past, leaving little for remark. Today's natives seek some definite, orthodox cultural specialty for a life work. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Make this a minimal day, with no more than your normal share in community exercises and customs. TAURUS (April 20 - May 201: Stay on the good-humored side, explaining little, offering no provocation, as even a funny remark can be misunderstood. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): You are on your way up on e cycle of increasing personal energy, magnetic qualities added to vour personality. CANCER (June 21 - July 22V. Your emotional maturity is on display this contusing Sunday. Nothing is really quite as it is represented to you. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22V. Being in a blithe, cheerful frame of mind saves the day. Taking yourself and your rivals seriously can bring difficulties. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Be simple, and direct to the point in your assertions, and no more than is absolutely necessary. A deed speaks louder than words. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Expect everybody to be caught up in his own personal web of action-reaction and the consequences of past decisions. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Encouragement may not be realistic, but is certainly pleasant to receive for the mo- ment. Be helpful where you ' can. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Competitive sports have a strong appeal, assuming you can find challengers of about your own level of skill. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. .19): Be independent, individualistic, do what seems logical and conservative to you, with firmness, as soon as you can get at it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): See how people all about you seek the truth and some emotionally satisfying reassurance about tilings as they are. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): The fine art of serene patience is your best occupation. What you hear is incomplete or out of context, emotionally loaded. MONDAY, FEB. 5 Your birthday today: Lcav*. ing the past behind is essential to your conquest of the future. Today's natives attract many friends and acquaintances. Personal austerity in private affairs is the rule. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Concentrate on things and deals which have come to a standstill, get them moving or moved. Enterprises tend to be slow starting. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Following the path of least resistance leads you into carrying others' responsibility - while they play. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Your career bears watching, as an opportunity may pass while you bicker with colleagues and the new people they bring in. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Associates offer suggestions which miss the mark, would cause difficulty if you adopted them. Avoid clashes if you can. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): our best friends are apt to be the most obstinate and for reasons beyond your ready comprehension. Going it alone will help. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Being difficult is no problem; with just a little effort you can be impossible, or provoke the like from others. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Health and its care should come to your attention today. Resolve to avoid undue exposure, fatigue. Your work assumes importance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): It's time to level with a comrade over an old misunderstanding. Romance falters momentarily - cheerfully prepare for better. !'� AMUIS SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. 21): Be light, frivolous while leaving essentials unchanged, untouched. Patience with younger people brings the results you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): If you didn't send in your applications and requests yet, wait for a couple of days. . You may amend such matters j tomorrow. j AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. IS): Bring a pending negotiation to a close, settle for the best available, go on to another activity. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): Monday gets off to a confused start with all hands on deck, each with a different idea as to what should be done. Remain serene. (1973, The Chicago Tribune) OUR APPRECIATION FOR ALL HE'S PONE AS OUR .TEAM MANAGER WKWfTEP 50 please TfWTOCGWE.. 7x ^5 I [i)OM'T60WK.ESSICAM SIT AT THE HEAD TABLE V wmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Ask Andy Defeated Liberals work in Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) - Defeated Liberal candidates from the Oct. 30 general election are still prominent around Ottawa-this time as aides to more successful candidates. Two are in Prime Minister Trudeau's office. Former labor minister Martin O'Connell replaces Marc Lalonde, now health minister, as the prime minister's principal secretary, and John Roberts, former MP for York-Si mcoe, has recently been added to the staff. In other ministries, Murray McBride, the former United Church minister who was MP for Lanark and Renfrew in the last Parliament, now is special assistant to Postmaster-General Andre Ouellet, and Bruce Howard, former MP for Okanagan-Boundary, is executive assistant to Mr. Lalonde. Among other defeated candidates employed by ministers are Rev. Gervis Black, defeated in Frontenac, Lennox- and Add-ington, employed by Transport Minister Jean Marchand, and Peter Connolly, executive assistant to Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray, who ran unsuccessfully in Oshawa-Whitby. WORK IN OTTAWA Ray Perrault, who lost his Burnaby-Seymour seat, is working temporarily for Environment Minister Jack Davis, and Robert Borrie, defeated in Prince George-Peace River, is a special housing consultant in the urban affairs department. Jerry Pringle, former member for Fraser Valley-East, is a special advisor to Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan. Many of these defeated MPs have school-age children and want to remain in Ottawa until the current term ends. The appointment of Mr. Roberts, 39, to Mr. Trudeau's staff is part of the major rebuilding program underway in that office. He replaces Jim Davey, a physicist, who was involved in a long-range government planning. Other new appointments are expected soon. Press Secretary Peter Roberts is returning to the external affairs department, and Mr. O'Connell has been spending the last few weeks interviewing possible successors. PLANS FOR VISIT There also is expected to be a replacement for press assistant Vic Chapman, who will be devoting most of his time in helping to organize the August Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference here. So far there is no replacement in sight for Dave Thompson, who headed the prime minister's regional desk system, and who has returned to private industry in Alberta, The operation of the regional desks is being overhauled, and sources say they likely will take on a more subdued role after many MPs complained that the expanded operation in Mr. Trudeau's office, rightly or wrongly, gave the appearance of bypassing elected members. Since the election, sources say, the regional desks have been mainly involved with Mr. Trudeau's travel arrangements in the various regions. They were originally established to keep the prime minister informed of developments, attitudes and political climates in different parts of the country. Helium in balloons Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tom Kerrigan, age 12, of Vienna, Ohio, for his question: Why docs helium make a balloon float? A helium-filled balloon rises aloft for the same reason that a cork bobs on top of the water. Both are boosted upstairs by the force of buoyancy, or float-ability. Archimedes of Greece figured out how it works, way back in 200 B.C. The rules of buoyancy keeps ships afloat and makes oil float on top of a puddle. They also hoist packages of certain gases up through the air. Buoyancy is a force that pushes an object up through a solid, liquid or gas. It depends on density, which is the mass of material packed into the size of the object. A dense rock is heavier than a porous cork of the same size. Rock sinks to the bottom of a pond because it is denser than water. The cork is boosted to the top by buoyancy because water is denser than cork. In ancient Greece, Archimedes tested buoyancy by dunking different metals in water. He found that gold displaces less water than the same amount of silver - because gold is denser than silver. He figured that when an object is immersed in water, it is buoyed up by a force that is equal to weight of water it displaces. This same force buoys up a helium filled balloon and lifts it aloft through the air. The air is a mixture of lighter and heavier gases and a litre of the mixture weighs about 1.2 grams. Its weight is related to its density. Helium is less dense and therefore lighter than the airy mixture. However, heat makes all gases expand and lose density. Pressure makes them gain density. Hence, the comparisons apply only when temperature and pressure conditions are similar for both the air and the helium for examole on an ordinary day somewhat above sea level. Then the surrounding air is considerably denser than the captive Docket of helium inside the balloon. The size of the bulging balloon displaces an equal volume of air. And this is what creates the buoyancy boost. The displaced air may weigh about a gram more than the helium in a toy balloon. This surplus weight is the force that pushes the balloon up through the air - where the breezes waft it on its way. The lightest of all elements is hydrogen and it is the most buoyant lifting gas. Eut it is highly flammable and unsafe for use in balloons and blimps. Helium is used because a spark dees not ignite it, though it is a little denser and less buoyant. It has 7 per cent less lifting power than hydrogen which is a small price to pay for fire-proofing. * * * In order to lift a balloon, a gas must be lighter and less dense than the mixture of gases in the air. Nitrogen is a little lighter, but hardly enough to lift the weight of a balloon's string. Oxygen cannot buoy up a balloon because it is heavier than air. And a balloon filled with heavy carbon dioxide stays right on the ground. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.

But President Anwar Sadat, who ordered the closure, has warned that he will not tolerate any more disturbances. In recent weeks Egyptian police have used tear gas and baton charges to break up student demonstrations and attempts to march on Cairo. ipoyoii suppose-meRe's !NTELU&eN'r MR?
