22 - fHI IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wedneiaay, January 6, 1971 Your horoscope PI \M IS By Jeane Dixon THURSDAY, JAN. 7 Your birthday today: A year and a half of diligent effort opens; none of it quite what you've done before; nothing overly easy, but all productive in ways you do not anticipate. Depend main-Jy on your own plans and effort. The full results of your work do not arrive im- mediately. From time to time you become the referee or arbiter; it may even be up to you to enforce local peace. Today's natives are each a type unto himself, no two ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be on time and mind your manners. Your money will flit at any opening of the wallet. Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to David Lee Richmond, age 12, of Fair-lea, West Virginia, for his question: How can I figure directions when traveling? David's question is loaded with honesty and good sense. Too many people stubbornly refuse to admit that they cannot master directions and fail to see that this problem is im-porant. So they get lost and, let's face it, some never do get their directions straight. The strays who wander aimlessly around endure miserable frustrations and waste a lot of precious time. On the other hand, those who know how to get from here to there have a comfortable sense of security when traveling. Orientation is knowing where you are in relation to the rest of the world. It is a skill that begins where you are and with a great deal of practice can extend around the entire globe. A well - oriented traveler carries a security kit including a compass and at least one familiar map. Before he starts forth, he plans his route and learns all the details he can about the territory around it. But none of these things helps unless he has the key to verify his directions and the know-bow to select the right one. Orientation begins right at home. Although the sky seems Japanese plan $1.4 million library at UBC OSAKA, Japan (AP) - Sho-taro Iida, a Japanese professor of religion at the University of British Columbia, and Japanese-Canadian architects plan to build a $1.4 million library this year in a Japanese garden on the UBC campus in Vancouver. Friends said today Iida plans to use the steel sections of Expo '70 buildings, still standing in Osaka, as the framework of the library. When completed, it will contain about 40,000 books on Japan, they said. All necessary funds will be donated by Japanese and Japanese - Canadian graduates from UBC. Expo '70, the first world exposition ever held in Asia, ended its six-month run in this western Japan city last September. a very unlikely place to look for the basic clues, what goes on up there can help you to pinpoint every spot on the globe down here. Practice keeping a watch on the daily path of the sun and match its east-west direction to the sides of your house. When you face the morning sun in the eastern sky, remind yourself that north is on your left and south on your right. When you face toward the afternoon sun in the western sky, remind yourself that north is on your right and south on your left. Even on cloudy day, the sun usually provides a brighter patch in the hazy sky. Practice using its position until you get a built-in feeling of your east - west, north - south directions. Then learn to locate Polaris in the night sky. It points out the north direction, so practice using it until you get a built-in feeling of the other directions after dark. Orientation starts where you are and the next step is to ex tend your basic skills throughout your neighborhood, then on through your state, out in every direction across the continent and finally around the entire globe. These extended configurations require a globe and a large assortment of detailed maps. You graduate when you have a built-in sense of your position in relation to every other spot on the earth Carry this mental picture neatly tucked inside your head When traveling, use a compass and a map, the positions of the heavenly bodies and dozens of other guidelines and signposts to keep verifying your directions. But selecting the right direction depends on knowing where ydh are in relation to your destination. And that is a global matter. ubtle choices like color! schemes, qualities and1 textures should be deferred. TAURUS (April 20 May 20): Keep a calm surface to mask your real concerns, but let your friends know you do care. There is much to fret over, but very little you can do at the moment. Your time will come. GEMINI (May 21 June 20): Information turns out to be incomplete or inaccurate. Your good humor and patience in checking are essential. Strive for thrift, as there may be a sudden need for cash. CANCER (June 21 July 22): Take the middle road through the complexities of today. You find out things you hadn't suspected; questions of your inner reactions preoccupy you. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Force issues at work, but in personal life do the opposite. You have no privacy for emotional displays anyway. Expect to hear a wild story, not to be taken seriously as first told. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): You feel strongly about real-to-you but not-s e r i o u s-to-others matters, so don't expect them to share your views. Younger people try to please - reward them for then- efforts. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. 22): New contracts, fresh assignments have special glimmers NEWSPAPER APPOINTMENT HAMILTON (CP) - The Spectator has announced the appointment of Gordon Bullock 38, as execut i v e editor and James S. Thomson, 39, as business manager. Successful traveling, near or far, requires a lot of homework and previous planning. But the rewards do more than keep you safely on course. As you study orientation, flat maps become vivid pictures of real places. Latitudes and longitudes are transformed into global network of information. The earth invites you to participate in its dizzy rotation and the heavens unfold their secrets to guide you safely there and back, wherever you choose to travel. Andy feels that orientation is so important that he is writing a booklet to explain all the details. Questions astted by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1970) of hope. Settle outstanding issues. Technical consultations are highly favored early in the tCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Tact is essential, as you may not quite understand what's behind events. By-pass expensive places and habits. Associates enter into some impractical scheme - avoid getting involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Luxury is tempting, but hold onto your spending money; special needs are coming up. Don't react at once to provocative stories. Wait for more details, then choose a calm, more effective course. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Don't tell anybody what to do today - you have a specific responsibility if you do. Group activities work out better. Include solitude, serious study in your evening. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. 18): People appeal to your idealism, with more results than they had any right to expect. Where other people have a share in what is done, double-check arrangements. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your sympathy helps others in their problems and concerns. Make it as short a day as you can, on as conventional a path as you can find. Relax early. I HATE IT WHEN I DON'T 6ETANY LOVE LETTERS J LANCELOT-By Coker & Penn BLONDIE-By Chic Young LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Little-understood facts about Varicose Veins Dear Dr. Lamb - I have varicose veins on my leg. It looks awful. What do you think about having the veins stripped? Are there certain foods and drinks to stay away from? As I get older, will I have hardening of the arteries? I am 49. My daughter is 28 but already has varicose veins. Dear Reader - Varicose veins are common on women. They don't always cause difficulty even though they may not look good. The large veins have small valves in them that only permit blood to flow upward toward the heart. When the veins are dilated in large varicosities, frequently the valves do not close completely, making it difficult for the blood in the legs to be moved upward to the heart. Not all varicose veins have incompetent valves and even if the veins are unsightly the circulation works fine. The doctor can do a test to find out if the valves are incompetent or not. This involves putting a tourniquet around the leg and measuring the filling and emptying characteristics of the veins during standing, lying and walking. There are two sets of veins that may have incompetent valves - the veins deep inside the leg muscles that you can't see and those under the skin. If the valves are functioning adequately the doctor may feel that treatment is unnecessary. If varicose veins are associaed with faulty valves in the veins, blood pools in the legs and causes swelling of the feet and ankles. As this gets worse, poor circulation may cause the skin to change color or even result in an ulcer around the ankle. Unless an operation is desired for cosmetic purposes, many people can get along very well using elastic bandages or support stockings. If swelling and skin ulcers cannot be controlled this way, then stripping of the veins is indicated. This opera tion simply cuts the veins out in short pieces. In many instances support stockings or bandages are required after such an operation. There is a tendency for vari cose veins to occur in families These types of varicose veins tend to occur in both legs and become apparent after a pregnancy or in the presence of obesity or in people who have jobs requiring a lot of standing. Any constriction, such as garters, makes the problm worse. Varicose veins \\ve nothing to do with hardening of the arteries or fatty deposits that develop in arteries with age. Most people, including women, do develop this problem though as they get older but from other causes. There are no special foods that benefit varicose veins. Hard of Hearing? . . .

South's hand is superficially worth a mere five points, however, facing a partner who has made a takeout double and then raised the forced response; South's holding possesses definite merit and he Is fully warranted in refusing to sell out to West for three clubs. West opened the king of clubs and continued with the see. The appearance of declarer's nine on the second round suggested that it was not safe to play another club.

Declarer drew the hearts with two pulls and paused to assess his prospects. He had already lost three tricks and was confronted with prospective losers in spades and d i a monds-even assuming that 'the diamond finesss succeeded. West's play of tha ace of spades followed by his abrupt shift to a trump suggested that the spades would not divide favorably and, therefore, North's long spade could not be established for a discard. West's sequence of bids bad pretty well marked him with two five card suits which was confirmed in the play when he showed up with two hearts and apparently just one spade. This distributional pattern gave South a ray of hope. With the trumps accounted for, he led a diamond from his hand and finessed North's queen. The ace was cashed next and then the queen of spades was led. East realized that, if he won the trick, he would be endplayed, for, down to nothing but spades and clubs, the lead of a club .would present declarer with a ruff and discard, while a spade return into tha dummy's jack-nine would also surrender a trick. When North's queen of spades was permitted to hold, South abandoned his attack: against East, and switched his attentions to West. Tha latter was thrown in with a third round of diamonds and, whether he exited with a diamond or club, South could ruff in the North hand while-he disposed of his remaining made., /WHY CAN'T WfcANO BUfW Hl� BONKS "^S ' IN THft SACK VAUP UK6 OTHER POSS f ^v �% wt tf mi. i.e. BEETLE BAILEY-By Mort Walker LI'L ABNER-By Al Capp SMALL Y/ONDER THE/^S ' OFFERIN* A MILLION A WEEK.'.'
