The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THti Lk rHMHiuue ncnkLw .Mmmry Your horoscope ly KIM Ask Andy SATURDAY, JANUARY tt Your birthday today: In- spires the beginning of a long upward cycle of creative endeavors, in which you find routine more and more tedious, original efforts progressively more urgent. Cooperation is available, but for certain selective direc- tions only; some things have to be done singlehanded, against resistance. Today's natives are willing to go into strange and hazardous places, bringing with them strong in- tuitive understanding. ARIES (March 21-April Make it as quiet and peaceful a day socially as you possibly can. Anything you volunteer is apt to encouter opposition or be taken out of context. TAURUS (April 20-May Getting out of your regular routine groove is productive of good experience. Put on your favorite outfit, be out and in front, enjoying life and attractive social contacts. GEMINI (May 21-June Abruptly, the pressure is off in many areas of daily living, and you are encouraged. You still have definite responsibili- ty to fulfill, quite a lot of work to do. CANCER (June 21-July Stick to the safe and sane, the well-familiar rounds for a successful day of personal progress. Extra caution in spending is advised. LEO (July 23-Aug. If you have decided to go the en- tire route, do so, vivorously, but you needn't scatter your resources over too wide an area. Very late hours offer in- spiration. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Relax! Be willing to explore the nuances of relationship, but abstain from seeing how much you can do. Romantic, sentimental projects are on for day and evening. LIBRA (Sept. You'll be proud later of toning down your temper now. Don't pay too much personal atten- tion to anybody who is not likely to return it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Taking small chances can be as costly as major gambles. Meeting competition successfully requires some philosophy, some judgment, and a great deal of patience. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. There's a new ele- ment in your environment, and you must learn quickly how to work around it to preserve your own interests and freedom of action. Pretences and talk do not help. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Think positive! Mount a sales campaign to promote your projects. You have to correct some previous flaws, or make sensible ad- justments. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Your sympathy is what is really wanted, rather than your recipe for doing things "right." Your weekend round of chores is longer than usual. There's no extra time for needless chatter. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Reserve a good part of the day or evening for yourself. Whatever you said should be done must be track- ed down, letting nobody off the hook until you see reasonable results. 1974, The Chicago Tribune Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER The kilkils were all on the table. "Aunt Eva sent them from Bob told the boys. "Some for you, some for me." exclaimed Joe. "I'm oldest so how do we share, "I replied Bob, taking one kilkil. "Now you take a third of what's left." The boy did so. Bob took two. "Now Ted takes a third of what's there. Then I'll take three more, and Ken will take a third of the rest. Finally you three share equally what's left." After all that, Ken com- plained he had less than half as many as Joe. How many did Ken receive? Thanks for an idea to Walter Bothwell, Bangor, Northern Ireland.

Robinson Crusoe lived alone on an ocean island. He could do just what he wanted to do just when he wanted to do it. The rest of us, if we wish to live peaceably, must learn to get along with our neighbors near and far. To solve this problem smoothly, a majority of us agree to abide by some system of government. When America was a young nation, the Founding Fathers laid down a plan for its system of government in the United States Constitution. The American Colonies severed connections with England because they did not approve of the British system of government. However, the leaders of the Revolution were wise and enlightened men who knew that some. system of government for a society of people is necessary. So the Founding Fathers striv- ed to draft the fairest and the most sensible system of government in all history. They wrote down the basic structure in a few simple paragraphs and called it the Constitution of the United States. One might say that it is bas- ed on these two key points, fairness and common sense. The men who wrote it down did not use these words because they assumed that this is what sensible citizens take for granted. But when you read their words, you can tell that they solved each problem by asking themselves two questions. Is this a sen- sible, workable solution based on ordinary common sense? Is the solution fair to the majori- ty of the people? This sounds simple. But the task of framing the Constitu- tion was enormous. Actually, it began with a first try that did not work too well. In 1781, the new nation drew up the Ar- ticles of Confederation. This charter gave the Congress no power over interstate trade or money. Under this system, separate states set taxes and tariffs against each other. They also made their own coins and the money value changed between here and there. Obviously a stronger central government was needed to solve such problems, but it had to be one that allowed all reasonable freedoms to the states and to individuals. This project was inspired by two brilliant and energetic men Alexander Hamilton and James Madison. They suggested a meeting of state delegates in Philadelphia's Independence Hall. The 50 or so delegates to the meeting worked through the summer of 1787. General Washington presided, Madison and others kept notes of the debates. The seven ar- ticles were written down and the magnificent Constitution was completed September 17, 1787. Of course there is much more to the historic story. The original Articles of the Con- stitution state the working structure of government, the relationships between its branches and between the states. The basic charter was ratified by a majority of the states June 21, 1788. Their approval depended upon a promise to add a Bill of Rights, outlining individual freedoms. These Amendments, like the Ar- ticles of Constitution, also are based on fairness and workable common sense. Andy sends a seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Nar- nia to Srikant V. Devan, age 7, of Ottawa, Ontario, for his question: What would happen if the earth stopped moving? The spaceship earth is tour- ing through the starry heavens, orbiting the sun and spinning around like a top. It started all this dizzy dancing billions of years ago. And nothing, absolutely nothing could make it stop. However, if we want a nightmare, we can pretend. If some impossi- ble thing made the earth stop moving, all sorts of ghastly things would happen in a hurry. Buildings would topple and the winds would misbehave. The seas would slop all over the place and our whole world would fall into the sun. We can imagine these things if we want to scare ourselves into a nightmare. But let's remember that a nightmare disappears when we wake up and come to our senses. It cannot really happen, Neither can the earth stop moving.

The ability to "listen" to the bidding is an invaluable asset to winning declarer play. Every bid, and some- times every pass, provides clues to selecting the win- ning method. Consider to- day's hand. After North jump support- ed South's suit in spite of the overcall, South reckoned that the combined hands should offer fair play for slam. North certainly had to have one ace for his bid, and quite likely had both missing aces Rather than, beat around the bush, South chose to blast into slam without further ado. West led the king of spades, and dummy's length in spades was something of a disappointment. However, declarer realized that he LTLABNER was not without hope. For example, if the king of dia- monds were guarded only twice, it could be ruffed out and the queen, established for a spade discard. To test this possibility, de- clarer won the opening lead, cashed the ace of diamonds and drew two rounds of trumps, ending in dummy. A diamond was ruffed and dummy was re-entered with the ace of clubs for a second diamond ruff. Unfortunately, the king did not drop, but declarer still was not with- out resource. West's overcall marked him with, a five-card spade suit, so therefore East was out of spades. If East held the king of diamonds, he could be end played. To pre- pare for this eventuality, de- clarer cashed the king of clubs, discarding a spade from dummy, and ruffed his last club on the table. Now, the queen of diamonds was led. East covered with the king, and declarer was so overjoyed to see that card that he made East a small gift of a trick. Instead of ruffing, he discarded a spade from his hand. How- ever, East did not relish the prospect of being on lead. He had nothing left but mi- nor suit cards, and he knew that both declarer and dum- my were out of those suits. Whatever he played, declar- er would discard his remain- ing spade loser while ruffing in dummy, and so bring home his slam. Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My daughter who is twenty-two just underwent major sur- gery. She had extensive tests, xrays before hand. They knew her appendix was bad and one ovary, and the doctor felt perhaps the female tubes were involved. They did an ex- ploratory and found she had "Meckel's diverticulum." Could you explain this to me. I understand this is a rare growth found in only a few people. Dear Reader It's not real- ly a growth. It's a birth defect. And, it's not all that rare, being present in one or two per cent of the population. When the baby starts developing, there is a tube connected to the part that will, grow into the intestinal tube that comes out to the um- bilicus. It is called a yolk stalk. The tube really is a long pouch-like structure like the intestine and it is supposed to disappear. It may remain as a fiberous ligament. In other in- stances, the tube-like struc- ture remains open as a blind pouch off the small intestine. The long pouch can, on rare instances, connect the small intestine to the umbilicus and even be open and drain. The tubular pouch or the ligament that remains is con- nected to the small intestine at a point about one to three feet above where the small in- testine joins the colon and to the umbilicus. In most in- stances it causes no problem, particularly if it is only a remaining ligament.

BLOMME by chic young STILL WHILE I PUT THIS FLEA COLLAR ON YOU DAISY, STOP THE NOMSENSE ANP STANJP STILL SHE DOESN'T WANT TO WEAR IT, DAGWOOD SHE MUST'VE MADE f FRIENDS WITH HER FLEAS.' ARCHIE by bob montana The tubular pouch, or diver- ticulum, can have displaced stomach lining tissue or even tissue from the pancreas. It can bleed causing problems or most often it can become in- flammed causing abdomninal pain. Because of its unusual loca- tion it doesn't fit any good pain pattern. It may closely resemble appendicitis. And, it can mimic almost any ab- dominal disease. The pouch opens off the lower end of the small intestine. For this reason an xray of the stomach or the colon will miss it, in most cases. All of these reasons combined mean that doctors can't really diagnose most cases of these problems without surgery. The tubular pouch is usually quite small, no bigger around than the small intestine and commonly no longer than two inches. Some pouches as long as 10 inches have been reported. Even if the pouch is fibrosed into a ligament, it is still possible for the area to cause an obstruction of the small intestine. The ligament- like bands behave a lot like adhesions and obstruct the small intestine at or near the point of attachment. Just as in the case of your daughter, the diagnosis is usually first made by an ex- ploratory operation. Once the problem is found, it can be corrected completely by the surgical procedure. The sur- gery literally corrects the birth defect. 3HT OWE THAT'S I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAGAR HORRIBLE dik Alr4'T WHAT THEY BEETLE BAILEY by mort walker THERE MUST BE SOMETHING ABOUT IT IN ARMY REGULATIONS.' by X capo TUMBLEWEEOS TH'PANSY VOKUM TH'WORLD KNOWS AN'LOVES CAWTGtTDOVJN -SO A MEET 1 TH' NEW) Msy TOKUM.'f OH PANSY, >O' MAS A DEELISHOS SENSE O'HOOMEK ONE PALEFACE COMPANION i!
