Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 44 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdnxday, Janu.ry 15, 1975 Your horoscope By Jeam Dixon Ask Andy THURSDAY, JAN. 16 Your birthday today: As you celebrate today, you are ex- pansive, optimistic and make resolutions that last all year. Cultivate your mind and spirit rather than pursue material gains. Relationships thrive, although you idealize the characteristics of friends. Today's natives are noted for their chronic impatience, overall enthusiasm for modern inventions. ARIES (March 21-ApriI Delegate chores: You can't do all the work yourself or carry the main load in coming months. Travel encounters delay, interruptions. Partners are out of sorts. TAURUS, (April 20-May Pay attention to what associates are doing with property or other serious deals and listen to their useful suggestions. A good family life softens disturbing news. Console those in distress. GEMINI (May 21-June Manage career efforts or business alone. Concentrate on proven facts; stay busy. Look up old friends who cheer you late in the day. Romance requires few words. CANCER (June 21-July Interminable discussions include priceless information. Friends offer you help. Quiet- ly support someone, who is down on his luck. LEO (July 23-Aug. Recheck current projects; catch an error at the last minute. Evening favors a small investment and loan to enable someone to make good use of a venture. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Stay alone or in a large-size group. Friends are edgy and require tact; family needs en- couragement, moral support. Don't complicate matters by involving outsiders. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Buy items intended for long- term use; make permanent investments. Business -travel is advantageous. Social visits turn out to be livelier than ex- pected. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. You can take a calculated risk now with stronger odds in your favor. Leave your friends out; by and large, their luck isn't as good as yours. Do something for the public good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Support those causes you fully endorse arid feel you understand. Friends are full of minor surprises that call for a celebration. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Romantic secrets are spilled through rare coin- cidences. So much is happen- ing so fast that you should slow down and reserve decisions. Make plenty of notes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Keep plodding along with routine work. Conventional methods work best. An old outlay of money returns suddenly if you ask the right question. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Take direct action, keep up with the present situation and be willing to show off a bit. Improvise evening plans at the last minute, but settle for the simplest. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Jan. 15, 1975 Three United States Air Force B-52 bombers began the first non-stop jet circum- navigation of the globe 18 years ago in 1957 from their base in California. Refuelled in mid-air, the air- craft landed Jan. 18, com- pleting the flight in 45 hours 19 minutes. 1535 The Act of Supremacy established the authority of the British monarchy over the church. 1815 Lady Emma Hamilton, mistress of Lord Nelson, died in Calais. DIFFERENT.FISHES Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Colleen Langdon, age 11, of Omaha, Neb., for her question: How many different fishes are there? Imagine what a job it must be to identify all the different fishes in the enormous ocean, plus their cousins who prefer life in freshwater lakes and streams. Scientists have been trying to do this for ages, though the complete job is far from finished. So far- the known fishes outnumber all the other backboned animals. But every now and then strangers are discovered, and the list grows longer. The list of backboned animal species includes froggy amphibians, furry 'mammals and feathery birds. Most of these vertebrates live entirely or partly on land. The fishes are vertebrates of fresh and salt water, and so far we know there are at least different kinds. Most species are added to the list, especially when marine biologists probe down into the mysterious, midnight depths of the ocean abyss. Some experts suspect that when all the fishy species are counted, they will outnumber, all the other vertebrates by 2 to 1. In order to qualify-as a fish, an animal must be a coldblooded creature with a skeleton, plus gills of some sort to extract oxygen from the water. In the past, all animals with these qualifications were classified in a large group called Pisces, meaning the Fishes. Nowadays, most American scientists arrange them into three major classes, which are subdivided into smaller groups. One major class includes the lampreys and other jawless fishes. Another is for the sharky types, with skeletons of gristly cartilage. A third major class includes the vast assortment of or- dinary bony fishes. This large group is subdivided into more than 30 orders of somewhat similar fishes. The various orders are sub- divided into related family groups. Each family is com- posed of one or more closely related genus groups. And each kind of fish belongs in his own species. To scientists he is known by a double name, which gives his genus and species. As a rule, his scien- tific names give a few clues to his identity. For example, the ever pop- ular Goldie the goldfish belongs in the Cypriniforme. order, a name which means the carp type fishes. Her family name is Cyprinidae, and it includes other carp types. Her special name, which includes her genus and species, is Carrassius auratus which means the golden carp.

(Copyright Chronicle "ubliihlng Co. 1973) Lawrence Lamb M.D. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF East-West vulnerable. South deals. NORTH A 8 7 5 96 4853 WEST EAST 4J932 A108732 4KQ109 SOUTH tQJ The bidding: South West North East 1 Pass 2 Pass 2 Pass 3 f Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Ace qf The question of card valu- ation leads to many argu- ments at the bridge table. How many times have you heard a player plead, after going down several tricks doubled, "But partner, I had 14 Some of the problems that arise are dealt with in the new book "Goren Sollies Ihe Bridge Argu- published by Hart Publishing Company. One of the points raised in the book is that poinl count should serve ns a guide lo accurate bidding, and that players should beware of letting poinl count become master instead of servant. This principle was overlooked by both the Norwegian and Swedish South players on this hand from their match at the recent European Championships, played in Herzliva, Israel. The bidding shown oc- curred when Norway sat North-South. North's two club response was artificial, requesting South to describe his hand' further. The two heart rebid showed a six- card suit with a minimum opening bid. North's bid of three hearts was invita- tional, an'd South elected to go on to game. The defenders took two diamond tricks and East then shifted to the king of clubs. Though declarer guessed the spade position, finessing the ten, he still had to lose a trick in each black suit in addition to two dia- monds for one down. If there is any flaw in point count valuation, it is that the 4-3-21 count tends to under- value aces and kings and in- flate the value of queens and jacks. Qn most hands this does not matter, as the two tend to balance out. How- ever, when a hand consists predominantly of queens and jacks, the point count is overvalued. This was cer- tainly the case here, where South held only one ace and no king with three queens and three jacks. Thus, South would have been wise to de- value his hand and pass three hearts. Not that his decision made much of a difference in this particular match. When the hand was replayed, the Swedish South also reached four hearts, though on a dif- ferent auction. At this table West clvclud to make 'the gambling lead of the king of spades, with disastrous con- sequences. Declarer took the ace, drew trumps and finessed the ten of spades, thus limiting his losers to two diamonds and a club. Dear Dr. Lamb I hope you can help me understand what this medical diagnosis is, and I would like to send your statement to my son. He was in the hospital two years ago for four days with "acute gastroenteritis." Could you explain what this is and the cause? If there any medica- tion he can take without hav- ing to go to the hospital? Dear Reader He should be over that problem. Acute means sudden. It also means short. A cold is an acute il- lness. A sudden attack of appendicitis is an acute il- lness, no doubt you have heard the term acute appendicitis. Gastroenteritis means inflammation (the "His" part of the word) of the stomach (gastro) and intestines A common cause is old-'fashioned "food poisoning." The potato salad at the community picnic may be loaded with bacteria that have grown in number from the time the salad is made to the time it is eaten. Immediate refrigeration from the time of preparation to time of eating helps prevent this problem. Lack of refrigeration for several hours en route or while waiting to be Served promotes growth of the bacteria. You can have food poisoning also from cream pies and similar foods if not kept properly refrigerated after cooking. I hesitate to eat' cream pies, puddings and potato salads in public eating places because you never know how old it is or how it has been kept. You can get a bacterial food poisoning from meat, eggs and other products. The germ salmonella is a major cause. Many housewives expose themselves and family un- knowingly to these bacteria. It is not practical or possible to have chicken, eggs and meat free of salmonella. Cooking destroys the bacteria. The problem is that germs get on cooking equipment. The cook may use a knife to clean a chicken or to handle raw meat. Then after the food is cooked and free of bac- teria she uses the same knife or plate that has the germs on it from handling the raw food. This contaminates the cooked food with salmonella. The rule then is use clean, unused kitchen utensils and dishes for cooked food. Don't rinse off the fork or knife and use it again. Keep the counter and cooking areas clean at all times. Food is also contaminated by the can opener. The part that sticks to the can to do the cutting may be loaded with bacteria. If you can't regular- ly clean your can opener properly it is a health hazard. So, don't just clean off the top of the can, but be sure the can opener is clean. I noticed that Dr. Schmidt, head of the Food and Drug Ad- ministration, said recently that people are worrying about the wrong things in food. The concern about possi- ble dangers of food additives is minimal compared to the dangers of bacteria. Gastroenteritis can also be cause oy flu-like illnesses, alcohol and other ways of irritating the digestive tract. The acute form, though, lasts only a few days. If you lose a lot of fluid and salts you sometimes need help during the illness. Once it is over you should be as good as hew. So your son doesn't need to take anything. He should be well. But, it is a good idea to follow the points listed here to help avoid future problems. This applies to everyone, not just your son.
