Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HEKALD Friday, January 7, 1971 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, JAN. 15 Your birthday today: Pro- gress comes in abrupt excit- ing episodes this year, ac- cording to your preparations, Cini tit to face court CALGARY (CP) A prelim- inary hearing has been tenta- tively set for Jan. 20 involving Paul Joseph Cini, facing seven charges following the hijacking of an Air Canada jet last No- vember. Cinl, 27, of Calgary was re- manded to Jan. 13 after a chort appearance in provincial court. He has elected trial by judge and jury. Four of the charges carry a maximum sentence of life im- prisonment. Crown prosecutor G. S. Fowl- er told Provincial Judge L. A. Justason that the accused is mentally fit to stand trial after a 30-day period at the Alberta Mental Hospital in Ponoka late last year. Cini was charged after a man hijacked Flight 812 from Van- couver to Toronto while the DC-8 was between Calgary and Regma, The hijacking included two landings at Great Falls, Mont., before the man was overpower- ed by the aircraft crew as it was returning to Calgary. Health spa case stayed NORTH VANCOUVER (CP) William Kirkwocd stayed proceedings on a charge of criminal negligence against a Caigsry man in con- nection with the death of a North Vancouver woman in a health spa Sept. 3. The prose c u t o r appeared briefly before Judge Harold Ma- hon but he gave no explanation as to why he stayed the charge against Frank William Brown, former manager of Spa Health and Beauty Ltd. Brown had been charged Jointly with the health spa in connection with the death of Siirley Findlay, 22, who col- lapsed while using a face mas- sage and foot vibrator. She died in hospital. RENAME HOSPITAL PEKING (Reuter) The Anti-Imperialist Hospital here has been renamed the Capita! Hospital, in yet another relaxa- tion of the hard-line politics of the Chinese cultural revolution. A doctor said that the change was made Jan. i. The hospital was built in 1916 by the Rocke- feller Foundation of New York. alertness, and persistence.

Try Birth pf a star Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Derenda Mul- lins, age 12, of Visah'a, Cali- fornia, for her question: Can they explain the birth of a star? The birth of a star is a stu- pendous event, created by cos- mic forces that also govern its future destiny. Probably no two stars are identical twins with idential life stories- But certain types are very similar. The strange ones, cuch as pulsars, are rare. It seems that the vasi majority of average stars are created in more or less the same way. We know that new stars are being born while older stars are consuming the last ol their fiery fuel. In the last couple of years, the newly discovered pulsar re- vealed how a normal star does not behave. Strange to say, this information helped to explain some old mysteries about how an average star DOES behave. This led lo a new theory that suggests hew the average star may be born. There is a lot of evidence to support it, but as a theory we cannot state it to be a true and proven fact. Astronomers agree that the birth of a star requires two basic ingredients enormous quantities of matter and ener- gy. They also agree that the matter ingredient is a stupen- dous cosmic cloud of gaseous particles. The new theory sug- gests that the basic energy in- gredient is gravitation. This seems odd, because in smal] local matters gravity is the weakest cosmic energy. How- ever, in large astronomical mat- ters it is the mightiest. It may be the key energy that molds a star, ignites it and gov- erns the nuclear energy of its furnace. On a local scale, gravity is built into every particle of mat- ter. Each particle in a cosmic cloud, has its miniscule quota- In massive suns, its strength is intensified. In all matter, it acts as a subtle pulling force, dim- GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Gravity never ages or grows weary. The birth of a stupendous star may begin in a small way- Here and there In the cosmic cloud, gravity attracts a few particles together. These masses have more strength to attract other particles. Gradual- ly the hazy gases condense around a massive core. Gravity now works harder and faster with curshing force. The spinning motion of rota- tion can delay the crushing fist of gravity. For reasons still un- known, the unborn star begins to rotate. This prevents its complete collapse. But enor- mous heat and pressure already exis in the massive core. Elec- trons are stripped from the crowded atoms, nuclei are crushed c together. At some dra- matic moment, hydrogen nuc- lei fuse lo form helium nuclei, converting fragments of mat- ter into nuclear energy. This nuclear fusion ignites the fur- nace and the star is bom in a blaze of glory. Gravity belongs to matter and so long as the matter endures it never loses its strength- A rotating star counteracts its crushing fist and may divert some of it to energize its nuc- lear furnace. However, these forces must be delicately bal- anced. Nuclear energy is ex- travagant and eventually burns up its fuel. Meantime, the star's gravity steadily holds it togeth- er, even after the furnace bums to a ball of cold, dead ashes- Questions asiiefl by cnTMien of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

In the meantime, the same 23 aircraft are being fitted at Northwest Industries with crash position indicators and flighl data recorders similar to the so-called "black box" of com- mercial airliners. A capsule being installed in the rear of the fuselage of the giant pot bellied plane also contains a beacon radio to help expedite search- and rescue operations in the event of a crash. This work will cost an addi- tional million.

He cited particularly landings and takeoffs on second-rate air- fields in various parti of the world. The planes, purchased by Canada in the first part of the last decade, have flown into such diverse places as Canada's North, Peru, Biafra and Paki- stan on an assortment of mis- sions. LAWRENCEE. LAMB, M. D. Hydrocele lump is a water cyst Dear Dr. Lamb I have been puzzled for the last iive years as to whether the condi- tion I have is or is not some- thing to worry about. I am 67. The first internist who ex- amined me five years ago call- ed it a "hydrocele." At that lime it was the size of a mar- ble and he told me not to worry about it. As it got larger (size of a plum) I again went to my doc- tor in 1968 who suggested I see a Urologist who said it was a "spermatocele" and told not to worry. This year because the swell- ing got still larger I went to another Internist who suggested an operation and also thought it may be hemiated. It does not hurt but I cannot understand why it was not re- moved when it was small. Also no doctor explained clearly what causes those. Could llrey be cancerous? Worrying and anxiously awaiting your view- points. Dear Reader If you had a malignancy, within five years you would have had a lot more .rouble. Such a lump can be a hydrD- cclc, or a spermatocele with or without a hernia. A. hydrocele means a water cyst. Part of the lining around ;hc testicle fills with fluid. In lime more fluid accumulates and distends the plasllclike sack even more, causing the stick to feel Icnsc. Some fluid filled Mckj get quite large, The sack is really in front of the testicle and you can put a flashlight against it and it will transmit light, unlike a solid tumor or a loop of intestine. If it has been there a long lime this may not happen because the sack wall becomes too thick. A large sack can be drained with a needle (but the fluid usually returns) or cut out with simple opera- lion. This is not always done if the sack is small. A spermatocele is similar ex- cept it is a cyst attached direct- ly to the spermatic cord and ifi filled with sperm celts. It is not a cancer either. A common hernia is a loop of intestine sliding into the scro- tum along the cord. It is usual- ly at the side or behind the tehticlc. These should be re- paired surgically. That is the reason for the seeming differ- ence in opinion. I suspect your last doctor is concerned that you may have a loop of bowel herniated into the scrotum. The hydrocele and spermato- cele often occur without any important cause or may even be birth defects. They should all be examined. Since yours hasn't caused you any trouble, I don't think you have missed much by not having an opera- tion. If your present doctor has nskcd you to see a surgeon, do so and if he agrees It is a her- nia, do as ho suggests. Thus far it seems to me you have hod good management. If you nrc worried nboul n cancer, that seems to be an unneces- sary ctoncern. I IOHOVUEARIN9 A PRESS! ALL RIGHT, mas TUMBLEWEEDS-By TOM K. RYAN THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO TRUTH IN THE RUMOR, SOPPY!
