42 THI LITHNIDOE HIUID Wtdnttday, January II, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY. JAN. Z7 Your birlhilay Way. Prom-. Ises a moderate, standard year of experience along the lines you've set, or let your- self settle into. Technical skills are more readily mas- tered during this period it systematically pursued. Emo- tional orientations swing to become more sensitive, out- going. Today's natives are seldom willing to take a mid- dle course, prefer extremes. ARIES (Mnrch Zl-April 19) Stall for time, temporize, when unexpectedly heavy demands come upon you. Over optimis- tic experiments falter, and you may have to help resolve chaos in partner's situation. TAURUS (April 20-May Be wary of tame-wasters, other people who lack concern lot your welfare. Stay by home and these you care about ra- ther than adventuring about. GEMINI (May 21 June Pursue career advance m e n t with caution; somebody's mind needs making up yet. Respon- sibility for a loved one may limit your scope of action for the time being. CANCER (June 21 July On personal projects you can't compromise or settle for less than the truth even if it goes against pride. Change appoint- ments thoroughly to avert misun- derstanding. LEO (July 23 Aug. In- vestments in keeping ahead of social rivals are not favored. You could be further ahead by just being yourself and doing a good job. VIIIGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Be prudent in how you select clothing, equipment. An im- pulse at generosity goes al- most too far. Hold on a bit to be sure that it is needed. LIBRA (Sepl. 23 Oct. Tendencies are toward more thoroughly detailed, more costly arrange m e n t s. Controversy should be avoided in career is- sues. Working conditions in- clude subtle new factors. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Seemingly all those near you have Ideas of their own including how money is to be spent. You may as well state your views calmly and come to agreement by eventide. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Orothodox, conservative approaches work out better now. Relax, let others come to you as you restrain an urge to splurge.1 CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keeping facts straight is more than worthy of the pointments, schedules encoun- ter delays. Divert yourself and oved ones with some simple entertainment. AQUARIUS 20-Feb. Compiling a list of flaws and, aiilts comes naturally. Abstain rom doing anything premature ibout them, while striving not U> add any of your own to the record. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Tomatoes good iood source Dear Dr. Lauib I just love eating tomatoes with sugar and my friend inrists on eating them with salt and pepper. She says that way they don't harm you. We are in our 60s. She also salts her food at the table and says salt is good for you. I al- ways thought too much salt would cause hardening of the arteries. Am I right? Dear Reader The tomatoes won't harm you even if you eat them without anything. They are an excellent source of vita- mins A and C. It is hard to im- agine that this valuable food was once considered a poison and was included with plants of the deadly nightshade family. Adding sugar merely adds calories. If you need to watch your calories perhaps you should use something else for seasoning. Salt is a natural substance In the body. Whea the body is normal and functions properly any excess salt you use, within reason, is eliminated through the kidneys. There is no evi- dence that salt in the amounts used for eating can or does cause hardening o[ the arteries in man. Salt can be harmful lor peo- ple who retain excess fluid, such as in heart failure or liver dis- ease. It should also be limited in people who have high blood pressure. With the exception of people with these medical prob. lems, salt can be used. Inciden- tally, there is a reasonable amount of salt naturally occur- ring in many foods, including meat, rnilk and vegetables. Dear Dr. Lamb Would you comment on this problem? A woman has pain in her breast and irregular periods. She tells the doctor this and when she is examined he puts the stetho- scope to her hack and chest without even removing her bra, and says it is probably muscle spasm and dismisses her. Do you think doctors are too busy to really take care of a patient? Do you think she should consult another doctor This woman is hesitant to ses another doctor for fear of mak- ing a fool of herself. Dear Reader Doctors are people. They make mistakes or can be preoccupied and not do something obvious that they should do. J think if a person is unhappy with his doctor he should tell him so, and why. If the situation doesn't resolve it- self, then go to a new doctor. A doctor should examine a patient for his main difficulty. That means if the problem is pain in the breast, the breast should be examined. If he doesn't do it, ask him why not.

The Beaver is smart Andy sends a complete m- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to D o u g 1 a s Glein, age 8, of Mundelein, Illinois, for his question: Do beavers get clivers in their ;ums? Aody has a team of experts o help him find the true facts. But these human helpers could not give a definite yes or no to his question. So your reporter lad to go forth to track down the story for himself. Of course, only a beaver would know the real truth about a problem of .his sort. Naturally he could not '.ell it to a human being. But wavers and other animals al- ways seem willing lo discuss heir problems with Andy, who happens to be a pixie-type- pooka. It was winter in the north woods when Andy set out to find a friendly beaver. At this time of year, he had to skate across an icy pond and knock on the wall of the beaver's house of sticks. It was some time before the beaver paid any attention. Then he appeared on the bank. No, he was not out- doors when Andy arrived. He dived down a hole in his floor, swam underwater and through a tunnel beside his pond. He poked his nose out of his back door, squinted at his visitor and decided that it was safe to greet Andy as a Mead. This beaver turned out to be a wise old fella, almost 19 years old. Andy did not wish to dive under the ice and enter the house by the underwater front door. So his polite host pulled the sticks aside to make a pixy- sized hole. He quickly closed it to keep out the cold. Then the two friends squatted high and dry on the hard dirt floor inside the cozy house. Any noticed that the walls were lined with stacks and stacks of twigs. This reminded him of his ques- tion for the sticks were the Bridge results Indies Wed. Afternoon D.B.C. Jan. 1! 1. Mrs. E.

It seems that his long front teeth are marvelous chisels and choppers. But they keep on growing longer all the time. If he let them grow too long, they would chisel right through his lower lip. So he has to keep filing and filing down their cut- ting edges. In summer, when he chops and cuts wood, he wears them down without noticing. In winter, he has to do this by peeling and chequing the twigs in his storeroom. The problem of splinters in the gums made him sr.iile, and for a moment the old timer seemed to forget the answer. Then he remembered that maybe once in a lifetime, a young beaver gets a splinter in his or even in. his Up. It seems that' the painful experi- ence teaches the youngster a lesson. He learns how to his teeth to chisel chips from woody trees more carefully, so that the splinters don't stab his gums and h'ps. He also learns to choose liis snacks from pliable o r crumbly bark and the tender wood in- side young twigs. The old beaver longed for the warm spring weather so that all IBS family could go outdoors again and team up to do their merry chores. He expected that some of the youngsters might get a splinter or two as part of their school work. He even admitted that long ago, when he was a busy young beaver, even he got a woody splinter in one of his gums. He used his cleav- er hands to pry it loose, but the stab hurt for a long time. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Jennifer Bateman, age 11, of Peterborough, On- tario, for her question: VtTiy Is the funny bone funny? Only a very funny type per- son could have a funny funny bone. To the rest of us, it is a very sensitive elbow joint that hurts like mad if we happen to bash it, even lightly. True, this tends to send a person into a frenzy of wild, though not seri- ous, agony. It this situation, anybody else's lunny bone be- comes funny to one and all. But this is not how it got' its tunny name. Anatomy students refer to the bone of the upper arm as the humerusv Later in life they are expected to wear the solemn faces usually seen on doctors. But as students some of them tend to show a rather grim type of humor. Most likely, we can blame one of them for naming the funny bone which is a1 the elbow end of the humerus bone. Certainly we can blajne the humerus humorous joke on somebody who flunked high school spelling. This, of course is not saying that he also failec to become a top-notch doctor of medicine later in life. Questions asuen uv cmTdten of Herald readers should mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1972) Guidance counsellor is planned for county FOREMOST (Special) The County of Forty Mile School Committee has approved the hiring of a guidance counsellor for the County schools. Superintendent of Schools, Clifford R. Elle, has announced that the new appointment will be effective September 1, 1972, or earlier if possible. Mr. EUe stated that at least 75 oer cent of the guidance counsellor's work would be in the field of vocational guidance, and the remaining time would be spent in counselling of a personal nature. The new appointee will bo based in one of the County's larger schools, Foremost or Bow Island, but would spend a certain amount of time each week in every school having ju- nior and senior high schools. One of the counsellor's jobs will be to assess the interests and abilities of students and to guide them Into suitable high school and post graduate pro- grams that would prepare them for their eventual chosen voca- tion. Such tools as diffentia! aptitude tests and interv Jews will be widely used, and the counsellor will be familiar with the programs offered ai all educational institutions thai may be of interest to students It is further hoped that he will co-ordinate the p r e s e n 1 guidance facilities available to students such as the Alberta Guidance Clinic in Medicine Hat which has a psychologisl and part-time psychiatrist, ami the Department of Education guidance consultants. Work with teachers will en- able them to better program for the needs of youngsters who have social, emotional and edu- cational deficiencies. Parents arc also expected to be involved at some point In the discussions particularly with regard Lo vo- cational interests. blE KNOUJHE'SNOTAN EA6LE BECAUSE HE CAN'T STAMP HEIGHTS rUMBLEWEEOS-By TOM K.
