Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 42 - THI LCTHBRIDOI HIRAID - Wedntsday, January 13, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon THURSDAY, JANUARY 14 Your birthday today: You begin a busy year of serious challenge, competition, added responsibilities. You now learn to cope with tensions, emergency situations, short countdowns for major decisions. Experience also teaches you to withhold unnecessary comment. Your most productive path is to nourish your inner nature through meditation and prayer. Today's natives are inclined to be blunt-spoken, steadfast, militant personalities. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your Impulse to haste and waste needs inner discipline. A competing person wishes to see you disconnected from your driving energy. Don't be. thin-skinned. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Meet your obligations promptly, without hullabaloo. Attempts to push people into deals stir resistance, not results. Excitement in your group is fun, but doesn't get anything done. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Somehow control your temper and your tongue since it af- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Protect yourself when taking care of the ill Dear Dr. Lamb - Please tell all people who take care of anyone sick to wear rubber gloves. I took care of a woman who had syphilis as you would a baby, barehanded, and I contracted it that way. Dear Reader - You have a point. Everyone who takes care of someone who is sick should at least be sure the person has seen a doctor. If the patient has something contagious, the doctor usually will take steps to protect the people immediately concerned. You can get syphilis from another person in a variety of ways. This is possible if the syphilis organism is in a little water or fluid long enough to be in contact with the lips. Thus drinking glasses and utensils can theoretically result in transmitting syphilis even though this is certainly the least common way of getting the disease. The organism, however, cannot survive more than a few hours outside the human body. Any intimate contact can cause the disease. I don't think you should limit your concern to syphilis. A number of the contagious diseases require precautions in handling the patient. Rubber gloves are not the only answer. In general, if you just follow th*� rule to take care of only people who Boy Scouts get CA-NA-DA for a song TORONTO (CP) - The Boy Scouts are getting CA-NA-DA and they're getting it for a song. Toronto composer and bandleader Bobby Gimby said here he will present the original manuscript of CA-NA-DA, a song he wrote for Canada's centennial, to Gov-Gen. Roland Michener, Canada's chief scout, at a Government House ceremony this week. "Hopefully the Boy Scouts will use this as a theme song," Mr. Gimby said. The scouts will also receive Mr. Gimby's share of future royalties from recordings of CA-NA-DA, which have so far exceeded $12,000. He predicted royalties will top $100,000 in the next 50 years - especially if it is adopted as the scouts' theme song. are under a doctor's supervision, you will do the right thing with little or no danger to yourself.    Dear Dr. Lamb - My husband is 36 and the doctor says his anxiety is very high and his blood pressure is unstable. He gave him two different kinds of pills and told him he would have to take them the rest of his life and not to think. He doesn't take his pills and he drinks a lot. What danger is he headed for? Dear Reader - There is very little a doctor can do for his patient who does not or will not follow his advice. Medicine that is not taken might as well not be prescribed. I don't know what the pills are that your husband is taking but it is a good bet that one is a tranquilizer. Some of these medicines do not mix well with alcohol. The combined action of phenobarbital or similar drugs with alcohol has caused more than one famous person to go into coma or die. Sometimes drugs that are safe by themselves are very dangerous when taken together. If the doctor doesn't know about the patient's alcohol habit he can unwittingly give the patient something that is not good for him. Alcohol is a drug and should be treated with respect. I suspect your husband has an alcohol problem. About one out of 18 adults do. The anxiety and the alcohol may go hand in hand. He probably needs professional help. The place to start is with your doctor.    Dear Dr. Lamb - What Harm, if any, would result from a child sleeping with a dog in his bed? I don't mean a small lap dog but a large bird dog. Dear Reader - ProDablv none. It is possible for a child to pick up dirt from the dog from wherever the dog has been. But that is true of anyone playing with any dog anyplace auy time. fects your career. Spending gets out of hand if you start it. Plan a solitary evening with a pastime. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let money matters ride along without revision today. A story is circulating which you shouldn't believe. Make your views known, but without emotional pressure. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Shake loose from inhibitions, strive for cheerful extrovert experience. Unexpected home or family expense is likely, also impulse buying that exceeds your budget. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In today's complexities, take first things first and muddle through. Emotional tensions are generated by others' differences of opinions; try to soften any impact on yourself. LD3RA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Seek efficiency with orthodox methods in your work. Friends are off on notions you don't understand and much comment is likely. Reconciliation is within reach this evening. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The more you do, the more it seems you must do. Keep out- put within your means. A bid for a raise is unwise now. Your remarks are to blunt for some tastes; hold them down. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Pace your efforts to fit settled plans and don't rush. Impulse spending could upset your budget', checkmate a lengthy journey. Be cautious with mechanical things, vehicles. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Almost any issue can create disagreement. Temper does not help judgment; stifle the impulse, let the longer view override the sting of the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A stronger personage differs with your theories. Friends are not quite committed in the dispute. See the differences and cope with them. Action without consideration is not dcsirflfolc PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This busy day is full of variety, strange sights, unplanned en-counters. Overconfidence, haste are potentially troublesome, but subject to your control. 1971, Newsday, Inc. Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Randal Corliss, age nine, of Portland, Maine for his question: How big is a proton? Picture a towering building made of ordinary bricks. If an atom were as big as the building, the protons inside it would be about as big as the bricks. Atoms, of course, come in different sizes, but even the strongest microscope' can photograph only their tiny shadows. It takes a row of about 100 million medium-sized atoms to measure one inch. It would take a row of at least 100,000 protons to reach across the width of even the smallest atom.    Everything we touch is made of matter - and matter is made of tiny packages that are too small for our eyes to see. A molecule is a package of atoms. An atom is a neat package of tiny units of matter called particles. They have electric energy to do certain things. Every proton particle in the world is alike. It has one charge of positive electricity. Every electron particle has a matching charge of negative electricity. An atom keeps all its protons in a tight-fisted core called its nucleus. Its negative electrons are free to swarm like bees around the nucleus. The smallest atom has one positive proton and one negative electron. In larger atoms also, the number of protons in the nucleus is balanced by the same number of orbiting electrons. Death plea disregarded, kidney patient survives SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - As Dr. Chad H. Calland was wheeled into an operating room to undergo his fifth kidney transplant, he told the surgeon: "I have suffered too much. Let me die."
