Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon TUESDAY, JAN 12, Your birthday today: An expansive effort to overcome personal limitations begins now which will probably bring result* considerably beyond expectations, given enough energy.,At any level, your ability to persuade people to see things your way comes to a peak this year. Today's natives are generally quite determined once their goals are formed. They learn from the past so that the future becomes more legible. ARIES (March 21  April 19): Formalities, technical details are critically important. You have a great deal going for you now. Accept social invitations, offer gentle response to sentiment. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Tackle the more difficult chore first; get it done. Work then becomes easier. Your optimistic attitude is important. Planning should include goals, vacation time, possible travels. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Ways of improving your posi- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. DJ Better we limit cars than people Dear Dr. Lamb - In your column you mention "-HEW'a ill-advised comment on limiting people to control pollution-." I believe there is nothing in the least "ill-advised about the idea of population control. The enclosed article states America is actually overpopulated right now. I encourage you to do further research on the population problem and to reconsider your position. Dew Reader - I knew someone would say something about that. Of course, we should have  sensible population control program. The key word is sensible. I don't think limiting people is the whole answer. It is not people but what people do that causes the problem. In some nations where factories, cars and other sources of pollution are not part of the picture, rather densely populated cities do not have the problems of the developed nations. For years New York City has had a steady increase in pollution with no increase in the number of people. Why not limit automobiles - one to a family at maximum - instead of people as a first sane step. Besides I think it might be easier to legislate what goes into the garage than what goes on in f" bedroom. We can indeed control how foods, are packaged - eliminate, plastic containers that are next to indestructible, control how wastes are disposed of, what factories do. We should limit the ever-growing population of autom biles. With a little au'.omobile "birth control" the quality of life might improve remarkably. And while we are on the subject, why not cut down on pollute by cutting out cigarettes?    Dear Dr. Lamb - Early this year I took up bicycling as a wo: lerful form ot exerelcing. But with the smoke put out in one part of the city by the steel mill; would the particles taken into the lungs be more harmful than tl-.a general exercise? In other words, if a person breathes much more in his exercise in a smog- or dust-laden city, is it better to work less? Dear Reader - That is a good question. Unless the level of pollution is very high the benefits from your exercise would outweigh the danger. Although you would increase the amount of air taken into the lungs during the exercise, this is a relatively small inc::ase over the amount you would breathe in a day's time. Your problem punts up beautifully that it is not always how many people, but what people do that counts. The steel mill is the problem in your area, now how many people live there. Living in Colorado, you are in a state with vast areas of sparse population and yet you are a victim of pollution. I approve of bicycling wholeheartedly. Bkyling is a good way to keep the circulation in shape. If you c.uld just replace a lot of expensive automobiles with cycles, we would have a much healthier population and a lot less pollution. ' �  pear Dr. Lamb.. I .am smaller tr ji most girls my age (14) end I haven't startc' my period. I am teased very often because they have. Is there any way to induce the menstrual cycle without a prescription? Dear Reader - You s'..suld not take any medicine for this unless your doctor says you really have a problem with your glands - which isn't likely. Some girls start later. Count you-If lucky to postpone toose problems. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

A.-False pride In the polecat �Ion of It point* ahould not lnl V M IS Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book encyclopedia to Bill Chev-erie, age 11, of Sarasota, Florida, for his question: What exactly are hookworms? Hookworms play an unpleasant role - in our ecology and coping with them is a dirty business, to say the least. These small parasites are spread from person to person by poor sanitation. Such topics make some people squeamish. But remember, they are part of nature. What's more, every phase of our ecology relates to that livable world we are trying to achieve. The hookworm story taught us that certain insidious diseases strike human communities when ecological rules of good housekeeping are ignored.  0  These wreched parasites attack humans and certain animals, especially in warm, moist climates. The species that concerns us most is Necator americanus, the American killer. It was named several decades ago, when estimates claimed that millions of persons were infected, mainly in out-of-the-way rural regions of our southeastern states. Since then, health agencies have done much to control it. However, the insidius American killer is still part of the American scene. This adult hookworm is a little thicker than a hair and less than half an inch long. It attaches itself to the human intestines, feeding on the blood and other vital fluids of its host. The American killer is not, usually an outright killer, though it certainly makes its victims feel that life is hardly worth living. They become anemic and listless, lazy in mind and body. It retards growth so that a badly infected young person may appear to be a ten-year-old at the age of 15. This insidious parasite spends its larval stage in warm moist soil that is contaminated by human wastes. When ready, it comes to the surface to contact the skin of its future host. It often attaches itself to a child running barefoot through the dirt. Unnoticed, it burrows through the skin, enters the blood stream and makes its way to the lungs. There it burrows into the wall of an air tube. Later it breaks free, rises to the throat an gets swallowed. An enzyme - resistant coating protects it from the di-gesive juices of the stomach and the hookworm finally reaches its goal. The wretched parasite then uses the hard plates in its huge jaws to grab onto a wall of the intestines. There it clings, sucking the vitat fluids of its host. Usually the host is infected with a horde of energy-sapping hookworms. The adults mate in the victim's body. After four to eight cell divisions, the embryos pass out with the host's waste material. In reg ions where sanitation is unwholesome, they contaminate the soil close to human habitations. In a few weeks or months, the next horde of hookworms is ready to attack barefoot children and others who contact the contaiminated soil. In the past, whole communities were infected, often through several generations. The toll of human vitality was immense and naturally these people fell behind healthier groups in more sanitary areas-   e Hookworm patients are treated first with drugs to desltoy their parasites. Then they are fed body-building diets, rich in proteins and vitamin*, to help restore their lost nutrients. However, the long-range goal is the destruction of the larvae in contaminated soil. Health agencies strive for decent systems of sanitation. Someday, let's hope that everybody will realize that poor sanitation is the root of hookworm infection. Only then can we wipe this killer from the American scene. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington Beac'd, California 92648. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) New smoking legislation scheduled OTTAWA (CP) - Health Minister John Munro says the government will introduce in the current session of Parliament legislation dealing with tobacco and smoking. Mr. Munro made the comment during the CTV network program, Question Period, shown Sunday. He did not specify what areas the legislation will cover but said the government had considered a Commons committee report on the subject and a policy position presented by the health department. The committee, which studied the cigarette health-hazard issue in 1967-68, proposed that within two years of enactment of restrictive legislation on cigarette advertising, all broadcast advertising be banned. Mr. Munro said recent United States legislation prohibiting cigarette ads on t e 1 e v i s i o n leaves Canada "behind" in some respects. But he noted the publicly-owned CBC has imposed a voluntary ban on such ads and many private broadcasters have introduced restrictions. The government announced its intention last fall to introduce legislation dealing with smoking but there had been speculation recently that it might be shelved or at least not introduced in this session which resumes today after a Christmas recess. Mr. Munro also said he hopes to be able to make a statement this month dealing with drug use. That statement would deal with "several areas that we intend to move in a very definitive way now and we have the first report of the LeDain commission plus our own findings." The commission, headed by Dean Gerald Le Dain of Os-goode Hall Law School, Toronto, was set up by the government to conduct a two-year inquiry into drug "use. The commission's final report is due in June. Spits get death SEOUL, South Korea (Router) - Six leaders of an alleged North spy ring were sentenced to death Friday.
