Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 23, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - IS Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SUNDAY, JAN. 24 Your birthday today: Your coming year is bound to be adventurous, with occasional d e t o u r s and backtracking. Your main resources now centre in yourself, rather than in other people. Many times you may find that you have developed in directions setting you apart from some old friends. Get deeply involved with creative ventures. Today's natives are fond of moving from place to place, generally sociable, sometimes very strongly individualistic. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be a trifle formal in taking part in the community's customs Hurry sets up a costly chain of events which can be avoided. Journeys are better postponed or shortened. TAURUS (April 20  May 20): Emotional impulses are not necessarily your best guidance today. Make it a lighthearted, nonserious day; avoid any heavy stories. Gather old friends about you. GEMINI (May 21  June 20): Just when people need sympathetic silence, your temptation is to say too much, Strive to keep or restore the peace, even if it means skipping your own plans. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Somebody is apt to forget something. Double-check and remain serene. Rearrangements are complex - keep your sense of humor. Some waste motion is inevitable. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Greg Lloyd, age 10, of Montreal, Quebec, for his question: What are the habits of the armadillo? The armadillo looks like a small warrior robot, buckled into sturdy armor and all set to do battle with the fiercest foe. But actually he is a shy and gentle character. When faced with an enemy he would much rather flee than fight. His neat armor plating is there to protect him, just in case he gets caught by some hungry meat-eater. He uses his sturdy sharp claws to forage for food aiki to dig his burrow. They become weapons only when he gets into a very tight corner. The Spanish found the amaz-ing armadillo in Central and South America. They gave him his name - a very suitable name that means the little-armor-plated-one. Actually, the Texas armadillo who lives in the southwestern United States is as big as a house cat. His chunky body is circled with rows of hard plates, somewhat like turtle-shell material. Little armor plates also cover his small bead, his stubby legs and even his long tapering tail. His donkey-type ears do not match the rest of his streamlined well-protected' body. The armadillo is living proof that a creature can survive very successfully without being either super-smart or a born warrior. The shy, gentle character avoids conflict whenever he can. Yet his family tree dates back through many millions of years - and his assorted cousins still live very com fovtable lives in warm regions of the New World, where there are semi-arid deserts and dry grasslands. They are classified in the animal order Edentata the toothless ones. However, the armadillo has more than 20 lit tie peg-like teeth loosely attached to his gums. He dines on grubs, bugs and insects found in the ground And he digs for his diet at night. During the day he stays out of sight, two to 12 feet down in his earthy burrow. If by chance he is startled during his nightly prowls, he scuttles back downstairs as quickly as possible. His sense of smell is very keen, but his hearing and eyesight are rather poor. The timid fellow makes a hurried retreat when he senses a dog or a coyote. His flesh is eaten by certain people of South America and he has learned to be very suspicious of humans. The armadillo is an excellent swimmer. He can come to the surface after submerging for as long as six minutes. When he enters the water, he gulps uantities of air. His intestine puffs up like a balloon and acts like a float. Regardless of his shell, the armadillo is a warmblooded mammal. His armor plates are actually modified hairs - and some of his cous ins have enough fluffy hair to hide their shells. * * * Mrs. Armadillo bears four remarkable babies - and the litter is either all boys or all girls. When a few hours old, the frisky youngsters trot around like little toy piglets - with donkey ears and long straight tails. They have soft skins marked with grooves where their armor plates will form later, For two months the little cuties feed on mother's milk. They are fully grown when one year old.

The magazine describes the deaths and illnesses in an article by San Francisco author Paul Jacobs criticizing the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission for asserted failure to establish adequate monitoring standards. The Atlantic says Jacobs was assisted in his AEC research by the Fund for Investigative Journalism. "No one can assert positively, at this time," Jacobs writes, "that these deaths and injuries are from the radiation. "Neither is there any unassailable scientific evidence that the abnormal deaths from leukemia in the quiet Mormon villages of Parowan, Paragonah and Pleasant Grove, Utah, and Fredonia, Ariz., were the result of the fallout from the tests to which the towns had been exposed. "The death rate from leukemia in Pleasant Grove is approximately six times higher than normal," Jacobs writes, "while in Paragonah and Parowan, neighboring towns, four cases were diagnosed in a period when only 1.4 should have been anticipated. Fredonia and its neighboring town, Kanab, Utah, suffered what one medi- cal expert described as a leukemia 'epidemic' "But neither can the AEC accurately claim, as it does, that no possible connection exists between these events and its activities." The author says that AEC "totally rejected the findings of two scientists, Dr. John Gofman and Dr. Arthur Tamplin, that the federal standard for acceptable radiation exposures was 10 times too high and failure to reduce it could result in 32,000 additional deaths from cancer and leukemia.
