Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE HERALD Thundiy, Jinuiry 2, Ask Andy MOON SPOTS Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Terri Voskuhl, age 11, of Marshall, Okla., for her question: What are those dark spots on the moon? Those dark patches on the golden moon look somewhat like eyes and wide open mouth. This, no doubt, ex- plains why we talk about the Man in the Moon. Naturally this notion is ridiculous. But for centuries astronomers also had a wild idea about those dark spots on the moon. Early astronomers imagin- ed tliat the lunar landscape was similar to the earth's. Their telescopes revealed mountains, which they named for well known ranges on our globe. They assumed that the dark patches must be seas, similar to the earth's watery oceans. For this reason they called them the lunar maria, which is the plural form of the olden word mare, meaning sea. A detailed map of the moon gives the names of the dark areas either as Latin maria or English seas. For example, one very large irregular shape area is named Mare Ibrium, alias the Sea of Storms. This was the landing site of the Apollo 12 astronauts. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed in the Sea of Tranquility and an earthl- ing astronaut named Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon. Apollo missions 15 and 17 landed beside a dark area which was named the Sea of Serenity. But they did not ex- pect to find themselves on beaches beside watery lunar seas. Astronomers already knew that those dark areas are rather flat, lunar lowlands covered with loose, lunar dirt. From the earth, they look darkish' gray because they reflect less sunlight in our direction. The old timers were right about the lunar mountains. These are the highlands that reflect more of the sun's golden light. Seen from the earth without a telescope, the moon's face appears to be bright, shiny highlands and shadowy lowlands. Here and there we see a few round craters that reflect shadows and sunshine, depending on the sun's position in the lunar sk'ies. Ages ago, the surface of. the moon was bombarded with countless meteors, large and small. Only a few of the larger craters are visible from the earth. But close ups reveal many thousands of round craters, some no wider than an inch or so. by chil- dren of Herald should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648.

You achieve sound progress in the latter half of the year. Relationships are under stress all year, confirm- ed or washed out with little comment. Today's natives often have leadership qualities, may be harsh or sever in expressing them once a position is attained. ARIES (March 21-April Concentrate on trouble- shotting and getting your work week, closed out in good shape. Nothing runs smoothly until evening, but you relax then as some life improves. TAURUS (April 20-May You have a wealth of interesting but useless infor- "mation piled on you today. Work as best you can and en- joy the differences between this and the usual! GEMINI Make the most of social con- tacts in your normal rounds. Nobody is content with routine, and you see ways to make changes. Be selective in your approval. CANCER (June 21-July Morning news sets off rumors, and little gets done until you finally pick up the pieces late in the day. Expect overtime, belated chances to set things right. LEO (July 23-Aug. You spend most of your day tidy- ing up. Decision making mis- ses the mark despite appearances to the contrary. Use evening hours diligently. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Keep your eyes open to notice details and new developments while you pursue routines to complete the week's work. Take initiative only in later hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Listen attentively to learn new and strange facts in even the simplest situation. Nothing goes as planned, but you can still set things straight at the last minute. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. The soft sell works better to tie up loose ends of deals you've already made. Later hours promise progress. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec.

ZANY ZEBRA RAZED ZAREBA (Answer tomorrow) Dear Dr. Lamb Some time back in your column you advised a reader to consult a specialist in "physical medicine." The terminology is un- familiar to me and since you mentioned Dr. Janet Travell, President Kennedy's doctor in the White House, who is an os- teopath. I'm wondering if a specialist in physical medicine and an osteopath are one and the same. Dear Reader First, Dr. Travell was and is a well- known doctor of medicine, not of osteopathy. She was associate professor of phar- macology at Cornell, among her many other ac- complishments, before she became President Kennedy's doctor. She is one of the pioneers in muscle function and treatment of muscular disorders, but she is not an Os- teopath. In point of fact, she graduated number one in her class from medical school, so it is not surprising that she has had such a distinguished career. Physical Medicine is a specialty in the framework of the medical profession; just as pediatrics, psychiatry, sur- gery and internal medicine are specialties. These doctors first finish medical school, then specialize in the problems that affect the musculoskeletal system. They are involved in work related to rehabilitation, from paralysis due to polio not so common now, thankfully, to stroke problems and loss or decrease of function of any part of the muscular system. You may also have a mis- conception of modern trained osteopaths. Schools of os- teopathy train doctors to take care of patients with all manner of medical problems, not just problems of the mus- cle and bones.

For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diets, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Balanced Diets" booklet. SNOW GOOS HATE ME! THERE ISN'T ANY PROTEIN IN AN APPLE.
