Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 - THE LETHBRITOE HERALD - Wednesday, February 14, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEAN6 DIXON THURSDAY. FEB. 15 Your birthday today: Relationships of all sorts take unexpected turns, provide many memorable moments. Today's natives are of no strongly specialized type, sharing mainly an ability to concentrate on peculiar goals. AR[ES (March 21 - April 19): Push your personal projects for all you are worth, using all available cooperation, allotting everybody involved some of the oliorss. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Small changes make a surprising range of favorable difference in your work and home management. Compromise is convenient. GEMINI (Mav 21-June 20): Do � what is handy to provoke movement, bringing incomplete projects to general attention. Demand the help vcu need. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Escape from routine is desirable. Accept added responsibility only where you are familiar with the situation. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Everything promises better in an upsurge of confidence. Even distractions have a positive value. Pause for a moment's reflection. VIRGO (Agu. 23 - Sept. 22): Select for attention the oldest or most perplexing unfinished business at hand, do something about it, get to the main issue. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. More confusion on cholesterol Dear Dr. Lamb - I have a problem of overweight and my doctor advised me that my cholesterol is okay but that I have high triglycerides. As a result, I've been put on a low carbohydrate diet. My questions are: What are triglycerides? Are they a forever thing or when the weight loss is accomplished will they improve, lessen or disappear? Can you tell me where I can get a booklet on low carbohydrate content in grams. How many grams a day are allowed on such a diet? Cutting out potatoes, pastas, and sweets is not difficult but what in the world can one substitute for bread? I've been doctoring for high blood pressure for the past ten years. Dear Reader - Confusion about cholesterol is rampant. Doctors measure the cholesterol level as an index of the number of fatty particles in the blood stream. The fatty parti-c.es called lipoproteins are associated with atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, and are really made cf cholesterol, a blood protein and the fats called triglycerides. Most of the fats are carried in the bloodstream in the chemical form of triglycerides. They are basically a combination of glycerol, which chemically is an alcohol, and three fatty acids, hence the term triglyceride. The ratio of cholesterol and trigylcerides within the fatty particles vary and this explains why a person can have a fairly normal cholesterol but can have high triglycerides. Incidentally, the cholesetrol values are quite satisfactory in testing most men but are not quite as good a measurement for women as far as correlation with heart disease is concerned. There just isn't a good substitute for bread that doesn't also contain carbohydrates. Particularly since you have high blood pressure, the most important thing you can do is to eliminate all of your excess weight, or fat deposits. That means cutting down on your total calories. I know it's hard to find a source of information on the calories of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in the various foods and that most people who have heart problems or diet problems need such information. This is the main reason that I recent'y wrote the book "What You Need to Know About Food and Cooking For Health" (published by Viking Press, 625' Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10022; price $10.) It has tables which include almost all of the common food items that people use and aE the values are expressed in calories, not grams, for carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, as well as the cholesterol content of the various foods. This is the only source I know of that provides this kind of information in a usuable form for the public in calories as opposed to grams. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN * mi, Tt� CMun TriMiN North-South vulnerable. West deals. NORTH a KQJ52 v 32 o k53 * as: west east 4*876 *a94 : Indulge your curiosity - research brings more than merely an answer to your query. Group ventures thrive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now is the time to stay close to home base, see what happens, take advantage of subtle opportunities to batter your situation. AQUARIUS (Jan, 20 - Feb. 18 >: Creative revisions are favored. Romantic appeal is nearby, although you may not know what to make of it at first. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Certainty is preferable to haste as you tidy up the week's program, taper activities off so you can dose the workweek. 1973, The Chicago Tribune Iii:i!l!i!i!!ii!i!llll!!�!!!!lliiBl Ask Andy Energy crisis Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the Merit Students Encylopedia to Drema Rollins, age 10, of Powellton, West Virginia, for her question: What does this energy crisis mean? Imagine a world without enough electricity to rim TVs and refrigerators, to light our homes and cities and run the factories that produce the multitude of items for our daily lives. That would be a crisis indeed. Oour present power plants are giving us all they can - but every year we require more and still moi:e. The present energy crisis gives us a choice. Either we find ways to produce more electric power to do our work by muscle power. This sounds like quite a problem. But let's remember that human beings are mighty smart, especially when it comes to inventing easy ways to do their; chores. It took about 50 years to set up the stupendous power systems that supply our electrical energy. There are enough smart people around to set up bigger systems - and better ones. However, naturally, there are a few problems. The worst one is people who believe in magic. They expect the job to be done this minute, just waving a magic wand. The sensible folk expect it to take maybe 20 or 30 Today history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Feb. 14, 1973 . . . The most spectacularly violent single crime of Chicago's lawless years occurred 44 years ago today -in 1929-when Al Capone's gang perpetrated the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Seven members of the rival O'Banion mob were lined up in a garage and mowed down by gun-fire. 1958-Iraq and Jordan formed a federation called the Arab Union to counter the merger of Egypt and Syria as the United Arab Republic. 1950-The Soviet Union and Communist China signed far-reaching pacs including a 30-year treaty of alliance, friendship and mutual aid.' 1915-The first telephone conversation between Montreal and Vancouver took place. 1859-Oregon became the 33rd state of the United States. 1663-Canada became a royal province of France. Find old village FOGGIA, Italy (AP)-Arch-eologists excavating in an area near this south Italian city have unearthed parts of a village dating back to the Iron Age. The archeologists said the village is about 30 centuries old. They reported, finding caves, remains of "human bones and vase fragments. A previous expedition, in a nearby area, had unearthed a vill-lage from the Bronze Age several months ago. years, or even longer. Thev also expect that the job will be done better and require more work and money than we spent to set up our present system. We know now that our old style power plants pollute the world's air and water. Most of them burn coal or oil fuels to boil the water that makes the steam that turns the generators that send electric energy surging through the wires. These fossil fuels give off polluting chemicals and they won't last much longer. True, some generators are turned by waterfalls or man-made dams. Falling water does not pollute the world, but there is not enough of it to provide all the labor saving electric energy we need. Actually our present energy crisis gives us a chance to invent cleaner ways to generate electricity - and enough of it to do more work for lots more people. Some experts favor building many new nuclear power plants. Others argue that these cause hot water pollution and nobody knows what to do with their radioactive wastes. It so happens that the earth has several suggestions to help us along until we complete the perfect job. Some experts ai'e seeking ways to harness the enormous power of the tossing tides. But at present, part of the answer seems the buried heat used by showy geysers, hot springs and smoky fumer-oles. In California, this geother-mal energy already is used to turn several generators. Other hot spots could provide enough energy to last us for ages. * �  However, most likelv the future world, will get its labor-saving energy from the sun. Every day it sheds plenty of surplus energy on the earth. Inventors are striving to make small solar power units for homes and farms. On the sunny slopes of France, they do this on a very grand scale. A huge building of curved mirrors concentrates solar heat and focuses it to turn electric generators. Most likely the energy crisis will be solved by all sorts of devices that convert our unlimited supplies of free, non-polluting solar radiation.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) HAGAR the HORRIBLE-By Dik Browne Work started on skyscraper PEKING (Reuter) - Founda-itons are being laid for Peking's first skyscraper-a 20-storey hotel which will be the Chinese capital's tallest buildine, a Chinese spokesman said today. Tlie block is an extension to the seven-storey Peking Hotel in the heart of the city next to the enormous Tien an Men (Gate of Heavenly Peace) Square. The design of the new building has not yet been published. The new block will occupy a site at the junction of two of Peking's most famous thoroughfares, Changan (Eternal Tranquillity) Road which bisects the city from east to west, and Wangfuching, the capital's main shopping street. When completed, the block will command an incomparable view over the golden tiled roofs of the Forbidden City, the home of China's emperors.
