Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, January 25, 1975 Ask Andy THE STATELY PINE Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Karen Snyder, age 13, of Williamsport, Pa., for her question: Why don't pine trees lose their leaves? Right now the northern woods are knee deep in crunchy snow. It drifts around the trunks of stately pines and sometimes piles heavy white cushions on their boughs. Sparkling icicles often hang from the tips of their furry greenery. Yet somehow the sturdy pines manage to keep their leafy needles through all the hardships of winter. Every part of a handsome pine tree is designed to cope with wintry weather. Its protections include waterproof waxes and gummy resins, plus specially shaped leaves and branches. These same protections also help to withstand droughts and. summer's heat, serious wounds and greedy insects. Surely the evergreen conifer is a tree for all seasons: Maples and other deciduous trees must shed their leaves in the fall because they are not designed to cope with the winter. Their wide, papery leaves have thin skins and numerous pores'-through which gallons of moisture evaporate into the summer air. In winter, this moisture cannot be replaced from the frozen ground. Frost would shatter their fragile cell walls with tiny daggers of ice. Back breaking snows would pile up and break off their widespreading arms. The pine tree and other evergreen conifers are built to cope with these problems. Their skinny needles have thick skins and waxy coats to seal out the frost. These smaller leaves have a smaller surface and fewer pores, so as to retard evaporation. All the conifer cells are re enforced with tangy resins. These tacky gums ooze out to seal wounds from broken branches and also discourage attacking insects. The stately tree tapers to the top and fans out toward the ground. Its springy boughs slope downward. Blizzards may load them with piles of snow: But the heavy loads soon slide down the slopes without breaking the branches. Come summer, the same skinny pine needles are less likely to wilt during a hot dry spell. So the all season pine tree can keep its furry greenery throughout the year. We tend to think of evergreens as the piney conifers of our northern forest. But many evergreens also live in the tropics. have large wide leaves with thick skins and waxy surfaces that retard evaporation. A few of these tropical leaves are shed every year. But a spiky little pine needle may stay on its tree through six or seven years. Outttlont by chll-' drtn of thould milled to Andy, P.O. Box.

(Look for answers Monday) Your horoscope lyJumDiufl SUNDAY, JAN. 26 Your birthday today: Con- quest over limitations marks the coming year for the young. Those in maturity use current influences to con- solidate their progress. For both, it's essentially a time of healthy, conservative growth with most activities meeting enjoyable success. Today's natives are intrepid, hard driving enthusiasts, noted for depth of character. ARIES (March 21 April Make the rounds, see that those who wait for you are not disappointed. Any major change you attempt becomes a bone of contention. Try to relax, and let others do.the same. TAURUS (April 20 May Stick close to home base. Invest an hour or two in a favorite hobby. Enjoy such or- dinary things as retelling of old stories. GEMINI (May 21 June This Sunday is another of those times when an over serious attitude produces nothing but confusion, good fun at best. Be lighthearted, avoid complicated schemes. CANCER (June 21 July Be prompt and graceful in taking part in local ex- pressions of faith. Leave business matters strictly out of your schedule. You're help- ful to in laws in unexpected ways. LEO (July 23-Aug. It's a little difficult for others to follow you or to understand your idiosyncracies. Take the trouble to bring your loved ones up-to-date on details. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. The personal touch wins in today's oddly vague and com- plex scramble. No specific goals are achieved beyond deeper and more accurately understood experience in relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. So much news and opinions abound that you may as well discount all you hear today. Rely on your own judgment once you've checked for yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Seek cheerful friends who have similar interests in sports and.hobbies. Take a vacation from your work week activity; no shoptalk! Neither lend nor borrow today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 Dev. Local community events deserve your fair share of attention. Skip commercial transactions or career moves altogether. Find some time for meditation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Compare notes, show off if you wish, but don't make deals or exchanges. Let social tides flow as they will. If you're out of certain events, it's just as well or better. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. You have plenty of out- side stimuli for mental ac- tivity, but it takes time to work its way through to you. Personal indulgence is to be kept well within bounds. PISCES (Feb. 19 March If you're really observant this Sunday, even familiar paths have an added quality. Enjoy fine and subtle details, force no issues. MONDAY, JAN. 27 Your birthday today: With today's full moon, you fulfill long-standing objectives and refine them into greater goals. Expanding your career is natural this year, as is receiving broader respon- sibilities and heavier social activity schedules. Relationships involve many incidents of high drama. Today's natives frequently select some specialty and ex- pertly develop it. ARIES (March 21-April If you are an opportunist today, you will start your week off in the right direction. Facts and figures require careful checking. Your romance is hindered, perhaps from too much talk. TAURUS (April 20-May Organize for yourself, rather than group members or casual acquaintances. You must cope with extra people during this long and complex day, so pace your efforts. GEMINI (May Despite hazy judgment, you must decide now which activi- ty to continue and which to end. Pray for guidance and make your choice as late as you can. CANCER! June 21-July What is simple and direct to you is strange and harsh to others. Don't harass them with details if they don't agree. Fini a party or other entertainment to brighten your mood. LEO (July 23-Aug. Travel plans get bogged down. Be ready to improvise, switch schedules or accommodate, additional people. You gain nothing by commenting; make notes if you wish, but keep quiet. .VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Pursue what you want or want to do, but avoid detours. If something doesn't work out as planned, change your tactics, try again tomorrow and don't complain. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Don't criticize others. Sort out accounts and information. Make sure your associates agree with you on essential details before you proceed. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. An odd approach now turns out to be either the most productive or costly, much to everyone's surprise. If your crowd is bargaining collec- tivelyi make sure they include you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. You face challenge in all of today's dealings. Some people are difficult just to see what you'll do; others really intend to get every cent they can. Stay alert! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Your co-operation and willingness to share deter- mines more of the future than you now imagine. Avoiding self indulgence brings an added advantage. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feh. If sharp words are aimed at you, don't reply.. Try to figure out what caused them and correct the problem at its source. You'll fool no one with pretense today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March What you expect to be delayed may not be, while well practiced routines miss entirely. Make adjustments cheerfully and learn from the experiment. 6UR6LE!

What Canada needs to in- sure food quality control and sanitation is a set of realistic standards, not volumes of detailed maximums for acceptable contamination levels, said Harry Jackson, chairman of the University of Alberta's department of food science. He told a sectional meeting of the Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology that standards for food quali- ty control should be kept sim- ple rather than setting down detailed bacterial levels that would be costly to enforce.
