It's up to you to override temptations to take the easy way out this year. Today's natives tend to thrive better in their own business enterprises.

TAURUS (April 20-May This should be one of your more prosperous days, and if not, you could try to figure out what you're doing that reflects unconstructively on your daily living. GEMINI (May 21 June Novelty abounds in profusion on all sides today; some overt, some subtly hidden under fa- naliar surfaces.

(1972: By ihe Chlcigu Tribune) Lunar nimbus Andy sends a complete 20- volumne set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Maic Gates, age 13, of Nashwaak- sis, New Brunswick, for his, question: What causes lunar nimbus? Sometimes the golden moon wears a silvery nimbus, like a misty halo. These ghostly ap- pearances always match cer- tain conditions in the earth's atmosphere. This suggests i relationship between them and the weather. Suppose we keep detailed records of nimbus ob- servations through several sea- sons, including cloud forma- tions and the particular color of the sky. These records indi< cafe a lunar numbus is likely Dcir Dr. Limb Would you explain heart catheterlzation? What are the indications for having it done? Does it act as a treatment? Deir Reader A catheter is 1 hollow tube. The end of toe hollow tube is slipped into a vein, usually in the arm. Since the veins get increasingly larg- er as they approach the heart the tube is easily advanced along with the bloodstream to the top of the heart where the two main veins enter the heart. The catheter can then pass, still in the direction of the blood flow, into the right lower chamber that pumps blood to the lungs. Still following the blood flow, the catheter can be passed out the main artery to the lungs. This artery contin- ues to branch out like a tree until the arteries are so small the catheter can go no farther. Anywhere along the route a blood sample can be drawn out of the bollow tube, or the tube can be connected to a device to measure the blood pressure at the tip of the catheter. Since the right heart pumps only blue venous blood, the amount of oxygen in the blood will be small. If there is a hole between the right and left heart (the left heart pumps only red oitygenaled blood) the red blood will squirt into the right heart and increase the amount of oxy- gen in the blood. These prob- lems and changes in the heart valves can cause chances in the blood pressure within the The canges in the blood pressure and amount of oxy gen in the blood enable the doctor to determine the loca- tion and size of a hole thai shouldn't be there or the amount of damage. To catheterize the left side ol the heart, the catheter must be passed through an artery back- ward into the left heart. By slipping the end Df the catheter intc the openings of the coron- ary arteries that supply the heart muscle with blood anc then injecting dye into the art- eries, x-ray pictures can show if the arteries are obstructed or not. A heart catheterization then is used to locate holes in the walls of the heart, define other structural changes, to identify changes, to identify changes in heart valves, or even to evalu- ate the pumping strength and [unction of the heart. They are most useful in cases of birth de- fects of the heart and in pa- tients who have a heart condi- tion that may require heart sur- gery. In specialized use they are helpful in determining the degree of obstruction of the art- eries to the heart muscle. It is not a treatment. It is used only to provide a more accurate diagnosis of how the heart functions. This .is often necessary to know before de- ciding if surgery should or should not be done.
