Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, January 8, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SATURDAY, JAN. 9 Your birthday today: A series of challenges and opportunities for mental stimulation is balanced by intermittent flashes of rising intuitive powers which help guide you. Material gain is not so important this coming year, but it does involve both work and concern. Emotional expression comes more fluently, and you are more willing to share experience. Today's natives are enterprising, self-reliant, and frequently prefer to live hazardously. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Schedules go to pieces; prepare for unexpected delays. Unfavorable comment is likely to be disproved very shortly, so carry on. Squabbles can drift into serious quarrels. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A dramatic response, satisfying at the moment, is not the best answer to a story you hear. Wait for the rest. See that you get normal exercise. GEMINF (May 21 - June1 20): Everybody has his own partisan ideas today. Friends Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Robert Ry-lands, Jr., age 10, of Allison Park, Pennsylvania, for his question: How many animal species are Hiving? Not so long ago, everybody assumed that at least all the sizable animals had been found and identified. Then somebody discovered the mule-sized okapi and somebody else introduced the whopping komodo dragon to the world. Maybe other large species are still in hiding- But certainly we have not found all the small creatures. Hundreds of newcomers are added to the list of known insects every year. * * * Naturally we can list only the known animal species and we can only estimate the number because next year the list will probably be longer. As of now, the estimated number of known animal species is somewhat larger than one million. The familiar cats and dogs, farm animals, lions and tigers and. other mammals account for only about one-200th of the total count. The furry ones are outnumbered by t h e feathery birds and far outnumbered by the scaly fishes. A million is a large number that does not make much sense by itself. So let's break it apart to get a more lively picture of the various types of species. The smallest members of the animal kingdom are the single-celled protozoa, most of them too small for human eyes to see. Scientists have described about 80,000 species and the investigation into this world of midgets has barely begun. The vertebrate animals, with internal bones and spines, are all big enough to be seen-though most scientists suspect that we have not seen all of them. This assortment of species includes a group of 1,500 amphibians, such as the frogs and toads and other gentle creatures that are at home both in water and on land. Another group of 6,000 or so reptiles includes the scaly snakes and lizards. So far, about 8,600 feathery birds have been identified, but nobody expects this list is completed About 5,000 mammal species have been identified and we know that there are at least 20,000 fish species in the salt and fresh waters of the world The complete assortment of vertebrates is far outnumbered by the spineless, or invertebrate, animals- This list includes the clams and a multitude of mollusks, the stately snails plus a vast variety of shellfish, starfish and polyps that hide in the sea. More than 90 per ceiit of the known animal species are invertebrates And most of these are insects. At present, scientists have identified about 700,000 differ-ent insects and at least one newcomer is added to the list every day. The insects belong in a class of their own and they far outnumber all the other species that share our planet. It is helpful to identify the species and add up the total. But studying the role of each species in nature is more important - and also more re- warding. Each animal shares a give-and-take existence with other species and assorted plants in his natural environment. Naturally we want all existing species to survive. We can help in this struggle when we understand their roles in the ecology. Then we can work with nature to maintain balanced populations of different species where they belong. * * * Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Marie coffen, age 10 of St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, for her question: What arc superstars? In the realm of astronomy, stars come in assorted sizes. Some aire hot little white dwarfs, no bigger than planets. Offiers are medium-sized stars more or less like our sun. And there are several classes of giant stars. The smallest of the giants is big enough to swallow a few thousand sun-sized stars. A larger type is callerd a super-giant star. If one of these whoppers were to replace our sun, it would engulf the orbits of Mercury and Venus, the earth and Mars. Some super-giants would extend even beyond Jupiter and Saturn. We might say that any of these giants are superstars because of their immense sizes. But perhaps we should reserve that t e r m for a very rare celestial event. This occurs when an ordinary star suddenly explodes, shooting its blazing gases far out across a wide region of space. Its sudden glory outshines every star in the sky, though this phase lasts but a few years. Astronomers call this starry superstar a nova. Sometimes the explosion scatters almost the entire star- and this razzle-dazzle event is called a supernova. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) differ among themselves; get out of the middle quickly. A break for meditation is your first priority. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Business deals become complicated; don't rush in without complete understanding. Relatives force issues in the family - keep your share of the discussion simple. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Everybody has some scheme brewing; avoid taking sides in the bickering. You see much that isn't correct, but beyond your reach to do anything about. VIRGO (Aug. 23  Sept. 22): Doing things just to be active isn't quite the answer; call in skilled help, if needed. Changes are inevitable, abrupt; adjustment is up to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Complaint is common today; try to minimize it in yourself and others. Tact is not enough; stand on principle. Take on attitudes and dress according to prevailing conditions. SCORPIO (Oct. 23  Nov. 21): Get out of the situation for a visit elsewhere. Friends are up to mischief in which you don't fit. Remember what you heard ;n recent days; see the discrepancies. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): AH sorts of secrets pop out now. People are so full of their stories they have to talk, some not realizing what they're saying is not generally known. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22  Jan. 19): Open your home to visitors, old friends. Bring home books and1 other sources of mental stimulus, news of the larger world. The evening is for fun and conversation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. IS): Make the rounds, check your favorite local speculations. You may revive some pleasant ancient customs. Younger people provide stimulation, distraction. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get an early start, as there are many new things to consider. Your home should be open only to those you know very well today and tomorrow. (1971, Newsday, Inc.) LANCELOT-By Coker A Penn BLONDIE-By Chic Young LAWRENCEE. LAMB, M. D. Not menopause exactly but a like phase for men No comment on seizure CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Press says the Federal Bureau of Investigation has seized evidence indicating that three pro football players either were betting on games or were providing information to an interstate gambling ring, which specializes in football betting pools. The FBI here said it had no comment on the report, which said the players were linked with the ring which was raided by FBI agents here and in other cities last month. The Press said the players were not members of Cleveland Browns of the National Football League. The U.S. justice department's organized crime task force here declined to comment on the reports that the three players might be subpoenaed to appear here before a federal grand jury to be called by the task force later this month. Dear Dr. Lamb - I would like to know something about menopause. Do men have menopause years the same as women? Would they have symptoms to want to cry and get depressed? Dear Reader - There are different opinions about this. The middle - age years are sometimes very difficult for men as well as women. It is a time in life when a man may feel his responsibilities are closing in on him with increasing demands from the family for financial support and most of all the realization that many goals of earlier years are never going to be achieved. It is a time when men realize that they are moving into the latter half of their lives and will be looking back at more than they have to look forward to. They begin to feel trapped- and often they are. Their manly powers begin to desert them. Sexual capacity often declines. Contrary to popular opinion, men do cry. The idea that men should not cry is cultural, not physiological. In periods of despair and anguish, particularly if a man's defenses are beginning to crumble, he may find release in crying. In many instances when a man adjusts to the realization of what his life really is and is not and he accepts somewhat less ambitious goals, he snaps out of his reaction. Far less often a man may need professional help for a depression. Alcohol often is a part of the picture and a great number of men lose control of their alcohol habit about that time in life and this compounds the problem. Unlike women, these events are not associated with any measurable change in gland function. While a woman definitely has a decrease in hormones associated with her change in life, there is no meas JOIN NAVY LEAGUE CADETS Openings for 50 boys - NLCC No. 50 NEW ENTRIES DIVISION parading on Saturday mornings 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the Ship - 17th St. and 10th Ave. S. ages 11 yrs. to 14 yrs.

Now you may call this phase a male menopause or a "situational maladjustment." I prefer to use the term menopause for changes in gland function. In either case, whatever you call it, it is real and it calls for understanding and reassurance. A good program for ego-building helps about that time. An understanding wife who makes her man feel needed and loved can be a big help.  * � Dear Dr. Lamb - I have hemorrhoids, in and out. The doctor tells me to have them lemoved, there is no cure. Is this true and what causes it? I am 63. Dear Reader - Hemorrhoids are large, dilated veins in the rectum. Occasionally, a vein will develop a clot. These often require an incision. Other than surgical removal, most treat ments for hemorrhoids are not very successful. Missing kidney found on road MONTREAL (CP) -Jean Vaillancourt of north end Montreal lost a kidney. Mr. Vaillancourt notified the Quebec Provincial Police who then broadcast a report of the missing object. A short time later the organ was found by a Quebec roads department truck near Vercheres 18 miles east of Montreal. Valued at $20,000, the kidney was an artificial one, a diathermy device used to cleanse the blood of persons suffering from kidney malfunctions. Packed in a large wooden crate, the kidney had fallen off Mr. Vaillancourt's truck. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN le WTIi � Tin CMum Trikwtl Both vulnerable. South deals.
