Nothing unusual or unexpected hap- pens until midyear when your whole viewpoint alters. To- day's natives like to guess long term results, are fond of nxperimenting. ARIES (March 21-April Encourage Imagination as- sociates, loved ones. A passing remark brings you sure knowl- edge of what's needed in future sodal enterprises. TAURUS (April 20-May Window-shopping gives you a depth understanding of general situation and the trends, should leave you quite satisfied with what you've already got.

Make prompl use of any sudden inspiration LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Raw carrots help clear up acne Dear Dr. Lamb Hemem- her that article you wrote about carrots helping a prob- lem face. Well, I tried your idea and it worked. My face has cleared up so much that I couldn't even tell I had acne. I am 12 years old and in the sev- enth grade. Dear Reader Thanks for your report. I have bad a few other letters from readers who have stated that eating fresh carrots, without scraping them, has helped their complexion problems. The original sugges- tion came from a reader who stated she had cured many peo- ple with this simple method. It may be that carrots help only people who have complexion problems of a particular type, possibly related to a deficiency in vitamin A. If any more readers hav tried eating carrots for bad complexion, I'd like to hear what results they have had. If enough people have tried this to provide meaningful informa- tion on its value, I'll report the results in the column later. Or oo you have a better sugges- tion for complexion problems that has worked for you? Dear Dr. Lamb I am not able to drink milk for cal- cium deficiency and have been advised that there are side effects to calcium tablets and one has to be checked for them. What are the side effects and how are they checked? Dear Reader I have heard a M of comments about problems in taking calcium tablets. Most of them are un- founded. After all, a quart of milk contains about the maxi- mum amount of calcium mosl healthy people need and cal cium in m i I k seldom causes trouble. If you have a medical prob- lem that leads to retention of calcium or increased levels o: calcium in the blood because of a problem in bone metabol- ism, then calcium could aggra- vate the problem. There is in- deed such a thing as too much calcium in the blood, but unless you have a significant medical problem this won't happen to you. People taking digitalis for their heart need to be carefu1 about taking excess calcium The calcium may increase the strength of the digit-aids action and cause trouble. About the only problem is failure to absorb the calcium from the digestive tract. This too, usually occurs only with certain diseases and with some calcium tablets from a lack ol acid in the stomach. But for most people the usual dosage ol calcium, by moult, either as calcium or calcium gluconate has no significant side effects. One of these should be taken regularly il you don't get the equivalent ol 1.2 grams of calcium from your diet daily, the amount in a quart of milk. GOREN ON BRIDGE BT CHARLES H.

Ants are toothless Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book encyclopedia to Karen Pope, age 10, of Gastonia, No. Car- olina, for her question: Do ants have teeth? A busy little ant never needs to visit the dentist for she has no pearly teeth. True, she bites, chews and nibbles and does a lot of oher things that we do. But she does these things with an amazing assortment of out- side fixtures. These attach- ments are more durable than our teeth, and also more useful. For example, a tiny worker ant can use her toothy attachments to hoist and carry a bundle that neighs 50 times more than she does. An ant has no bones, no spine and no teeth. Her body is sheathed in a cuticle called an exoskeleton an outside skele- ton that holds her firmly in shape. Her bullet-shaped head is somewhat like a tought little space helmet. All the attach- ments she needs are fixed to the outside and connected to nerves that lead inside to her little brain. Her mouth is just a small round hole, with no in- side Jan's or chompers. The attachments on the out- side of her space helmet are small, neat and remarkable. She has eyes that see in all directions and a pair of sensi- tive feelers that also act like dainty lingers. Five sets of head attachments are fixed around the outside of her mouth. These mouth parts serve as teeth, tools and wea- pons and they have interest- ing names. The lebrum is a fused flap, where the ant's upper lip should be. On each side it has a sense organ to test food and other items. Her remarkable mandibles are really outside jaws that work better than In- side jaws. They move on hinges, somewhat like a pair of tongs. When closed, points meet in front of her mouth When opened for use, they act as grabbers and grippers pinchers and biters, chompers and rippers. Some ants use them as scissors to snip nea holes in leaves and for delicate sewing jobs. The ant also uses them to'hoist and carry bundles above her head. If your teetl were as strong as her man dibles, you could use them to lift and carry a truck weighing SV4 tons. The dependable mandible need help from other mout parts. The smaller maxillas ar too weak to act as crushers But they can grip small ob- jects. They also have a pair of sense organs for testing and helping to guide the heavy work. The labium Is where Die ant's lower lip would be. When she was a growing larva, i was two separate parts. Afle her pupa stage, she emerged as an adult and the two parts were fused in one flat plate It loo has a pair of sense or gans, one on cadi side. They gather still more information for the ant's remarkable team of mouth parts. All insects have similar basii mouth parts, though some are remodeled to cope with differ ent diets. Ants are ehewers Matin sip liquid food. Their mouth parts are adapted to ac as long, pliable drinking straws The mouth parts of the Wood sucking mosquito form a long beak. II is a tool kit with tiny slabbers, saws, a hollow needle to give injections and another one that acts as a syphon. Questions asked cnlMicn ef Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

VICTORIA (CP) The Brit- ish Columbia Automobile Insur- ance Board has ordered insur- ance companies to reduce its annual no-fault insurance prem- ium to from the existing or effective March 1. In a prepared statement, the board said it had originally felt Lhat a premium o[ more than would be excessve, but it added the extra dollar after submissions from the insurance industry at a hearing here Jin. 12. It was the industry's conten- tion at that hearing, called to discuss the board's intention of lowering the rate, that a num- ber of accident benefits claims were paid under, and reflected in the claims record establsh- ed by, the third party Lability or "fault" section of the policy. "It is anticipated that a num- ier of such claims will in future paid under the accident benefits the board said, "and that a nominally higher premium for it would therefore be equitable." B.C.'s no-fault insur a n c e scheme became mandatory Jan. 1, 1970. The board was not es- lablished until last January and this year's hearing was its first. In its statement, the bond said the Canadian Underwriters Association announced in De- cember that it would increase automobile insurance premiums for 1972 by 5.9 per cent which would apply to all B.C. private Hssenger car insurance cover- age except accident benefits. No change was planned by the CUA for the accident benefits premium, the board said. "The third party liability pre- miums were to have been in- creased by an average of 6.2 cent. This adjustment al- owed for a reduction of two >er cent or an average of ip- Htiximately per vehicle." The board sulrl that because t was of the opinion thit the existing premium rale of ibout :21 was "about higher than intlfied" and since the CUA :art announced n third party li- ability reduction of only tie booj-d cnon to cut the to The board said it had re- ceived no Indication of 1972 pre. mium adjustments from the in- dependent insurance conference or from any other independent companies not associated with the CUA or IIC. Drug offence prosecutioiis up SASKATOOS (CP) Attor- ney general Roy Komanow said today that an 80-per-cent Increase in drug offence prose- cutions in the Saskatoon area is alarming. Any crime rate that shows such a drastic increase In a one-year period can only be termed as alarming, Mr. Rom- anow said in commenting on RCMP statistics lhat show there were 286 drug prosecutions in the city between January and December, 1971 compared with 165 in the previous 11-monlli period. Poor spelling foils sticup EDMONTON (CP) A man with a spelling problem was unsuccessful In an at- tempt to rob i liquor store Itere. Cashier August Topilko Slid the man handed him a note written on the back of a pur- chase slip. It read: "Thit ii a stick, stic, jtickup." Mr. Topilko said he thought it waa a joke and Ig- nored the man, wno eventual- ly turned away and left the store.
