Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 HTHBMDOI HRALD January 11, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY, JAN. J2 Your birthday today: Ove- ereomlng competiOon, natur- al limits on one hand, devel- oping capacity for creative sacrifice on UK. other domin- ate your coming year. You have to cull the Hock, select the best, and release What you can't really use fully. Today's natives study past for maps of future, are LAWRENCE: E. LAMB, M. D. Teenagers victims of arthritis Dear Dr. Lamb Could you give me some information on rheumatoid arthritis. My My daughter is almost 17 years rid and about two-and-a-half years ago her wrists started to ache and pain. The doctor said it was a mild form of ar- thritis. The last few months her con- dition has gotten worse. The pain and aches are now in her ankles, elbows, knees and, it seems, all her Joints: The at- tacks come much more fre- quently and stay longer. She often awakes In the night cry- ing with pain. We took her to a specialist and he said it was rheumatoid arthritis. It is so bard to watch an ac- tive teen-ager hobble around some days because her ankles are too sore to walk on prop- erly. Dew Header The descrip- tion of your daughter's trouble is typical of rheumatoid arthri- tis. Although it more often oc- curs a little later, it can and does occur in teen-agers. The best program is to be under the care of a specialist In arthritis. Perhaps' the doc- tor you are now seeing is one, technically called a rbeurnatol- ogist. Since you are in Canada I don't know what type of or- ganizations you might have to fcHp with this problem. But you Arab rockets miss target TEL AVIV (AP) Arab guerrillas in Lebanon Bred sev- eral Katyusha rockets at Kiryat Shmona early today, but they landed outside the town on the northern border and no damage was reported. The Israelis re- turned the fire. It was the fourth attack along the northern border In four days. The same town had been shelled two days before and the Galilean resort town of Safad, nine miles from the frontier, was missed by rockets on Sun- day. Shortly after the Safad rocket attack, an Israeli patrol inter- cepted a guerrilla band that crossed the border near (he Is- raeli settlement of Yiron. Three Arabs were killed in the fight, the Israeli command reported. can write to the Arthritis Foun- dation 1212 Avenue of the Americas, New York, N.Y. 10036, to find out if there are any nearby Canadian chapters that can offer literature or in- formation, or even the names of specialists in rheumatology. People In the United States can do the same or obtain help from a chapter In their com- munity. If there is one in your city, it will be listed in the tele- phone directory. I can offer you one word of encouragement. LaRue Stone, who has lived with this problem for 25 years, sat down and wrote what it was like to live with her arthritis. I added a brief review of the important medi- cal considerations. You can get this book by seeding yoiff name, address and zip code, along with (plus 25 cents postage and handling) to (Name of Newspaper) Arthritis Book, P.O. Box 489, Dept. (First 3 digits of your rip Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. I am sure that many arfhrltlcs can gain hope and help by reading LaRue's life experience. There are a lot of helpful things that can be done for people with arthritis. The most important advice I can give you, though, is to be certain that your daughter is under the care of someone actively mat- ing arthritis and who is a spe- cialist in that problem. Then stay with your doctor and don't chase after miracle cures. Your daughter may need help most of her life to avoid deformities and crippling. I know that is harsh and I hate to say 'it, but you must realize that continued unrelenting medical supervision by a competent doctor is your best chance to provide a happy future for your daughter. usually very persistent.

(1972: By The Chicago Trilrane) Four-eyed fish Andy sends complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Ste- phen Grubb, age 10, of EHza- bethtown, Pennsylvania, for his question: Is there really a fish with fro eyes? We expect a fish to be satis- fied with just two glassy eyes, one on each side of his scaley the water. To look at him, you might think that he has only two eyes that bulge like small marbles on the top of Us head. But each eye is actually two eyes in one. Each half works on Its own.

To look at him, you might think that rather odd he has only shaped eyes. two But the four-eyed fish really does have four dUIerent eyes. Most fishes nave eyes that are made to see under water. When they swim near the sur- face, the scenery above looks twisted and blurry. But the four-eyed fish can view the scenery both above and below Multiple sclerosis cure report branded misleading TORONTO (CP) Recent re- ports that the Russians have de- veloped a cure for multiple scle- rosis are misleading because ssts show the serum is of ques- tionable assistance to patients and may be harmful, says the president of the Multiple Scle- rosis Society of Canada.

A shift was clearly called for and West paused to consider his course, for the fate of the contract hinged on nil play at trick two. If he takes the passive Course by shilling to a trump, it places South in position to lake full charge. The latter can score 11 tricks by overtaking dummy's queen of spades with the king to draw two more rounds of trump with the ace and jack. Now the ten of hearts ia led and passed around to East's jack. If the latter returns the queen of clubs, South plays the ace, leads over to the ace of hearts mA then ruffs out West's king on the next round to establish the suit. North's king of clubs pro- vides access to the eight of hearts on which declarer dis- poses of his remaining club. He loses one diamond and one heart. There appeared to be llttla to lose by shifting to the ten of clubs at (rick two and that Is the play that West chose. This proved to be a lethal thrust.

The disease of the central nervous system attacks young adults causing periodic degrees of disability. More than Canadians are believed to be suffering from it. Anti-drug teaching scored TORONTO (CP) A provin- cial report on drug education not yet released says drug! are over-emphasized in Ontario schools with the result that some students think it's "fash-1 ionable" to use them. J. W. F. Bain, chairman of the government-appointed com- mittee on drug information and education, said today the report urges that drug education begin in Grade 5. But, "it should be put in Mr. Bain said. "Most Grade 5 students in Met- ropolitan Toronto are 10 or 11. "We've been operating on the basis that If we teach kids about drugs, they'll stop using he said. "But we're not influ- encing attitudes about drugs. "We should be teaching them how to live healthful lives which excludes the use of oljher words, talk about living, not drugs." The report criticizes current anti-drug teaching in schools as "counter-productive" and is critical of the province's Drug Addiction Research Foundation, which loses credibility, it says, by Us Insistence on "giving cold, hard, factual data without telling people what is good for them." what goes on below m the wa- ter. Several species of four-eyed fish enjoy life in the miW coastal waters of the Atlantic, off Central and South America. They like the shallow, brakcfa waders around rivers and salty marshes. The giants of the family are a foot long. But the average four-eyed fish is a slim, cylinder-shaped creature that measures six or seven inches from his stubby nose to his rounded tail fin. Where there Is one, there are sure to be many more, for the four- eyed fishes throng together. Like most fishes, they feed on a mixed diet. Their menus include small algae and larger seaweeds, little fishes and shellfishes and scraps of de- caying material. They also en- joy the eggs and larvae of In- sects that spend their early life stages in the water. Naturally, a four-eyed fish swims near the surface to make the very best use of his remarkable vision. As a rule, his long slender body lies just below the water level and his bulging eyes poke partly above the surface. He tries to ar- range things so that the water level divides each eye across the middle. This places two eyes above and two eyes be- low the water. He can see what goes on in both worlds. These remarkable eyes give him a great advantage over ordinary two-eyed fishes. He sees more and knows and what be knows makes him the most wide-awaJce fish in the sea. Fishermen report that he is the hardest of all fishes to catch. He seems to know how a fishing net works and hurtles himself right over the trap. He spots an angler and refuses to be fooled by the bait on a fishing line. This remark able creature has another unusual feature. Other fishes cast hundreds of eggs adrift in the water and most of their offspring perish Four-Eyes She gives in infancy. Mrs. bears live babies, birth to a brood of six to 13 frisky youngsters. Each one measures about of an inch and, with his four eyes in work- Ing order, he is all set to make his own way in the world. Questions asscfl trr of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy.
