Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thimdoy, January 28, 197? - THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD - 15 Your horoscope 6/ Jeane Dixon FRIDAY, Jan. 29 Your Birthday today: Earnings capacity promises to increase, particularly if you make a consistent effort to bring your scattered talents together and acquire additional skills. Emotional expression tends to become easier. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): There are so many different things to keep in mind today-write a schedule sheet. Get your workweek squared away early, then pursue romantic in-(crests  TAURUS (April 20  May 20): Build your share of a group enterprise. Make yourself known to the people you want to deal with. Refresh old acquaintances; reinstate neglected projects. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Attend to the more creative features of your career now. An issue which has dragged on a long time can be settled very simply - if intuition leads you clearly CANCER (June 21 � July 22): Formally organized projects, analytic work are favored. Review your budget, line up your accounts. Find some way of cutting costs. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Be a little more persistent. Accept the abrasive experience of hard bargaining. The way you express yourself impresses somebody who says little as yet. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Walk to health and ripe old age Dear Dr. Lamb - While on a visit in Orlando, I read your column (Walking, Lose Those Pounds). I am 53 years old and started walking five months ago, a mile in the morning, a mile at night. When I started walking, I weighed 204 pounds, I now weigh 185 pounds, and 1 enjoy every minute of it. I am not on any diet but have cut down on sweets. Dear Reader - Thank you. There is no good reason why any other person who can walk can't accomplish the same thing you have. The key is consistency. One could walk one-half-mile four times a day if it were more convenient. Cutting down sweets also helps. A loss of 19 pounds in five months is a good result and a major improvement in your way of life. Interestingly enough, the one thing most people who live to old age in good health have in common is that they walk a lot. It is not essential to jog or run for your life-if you walk regularly enough. Prepaid drug scheme set ior B.C. VANCOUVER (CP) - The British Columbia Professional Pharmacists Society announced plans here for a prepaid drug prescription scheme, to be known as Pre-Paid Prescription Services Association. "We want it clear we are not going into the underwriting business," said Peter Bell, the society's executive coordinator. "The insurance will be handled through normal insurance carriers, and probably mainly through group insurance plans." A board appointed by the society was working out plans with an insurance company, Costs would be the responsibility of the carrier and could amount to $6 or $7 a month for a family. Dear Dr. Lamb - I have been told a number of times that I have duodenitis. Could you tell me what this is? Also, if I don't follow a bland diet, could this lead to something more serious? Dear Reader - "Itis" is the medical term for inflammation Inflammation of the appendix is appendicitis, inflammation of the tonsils, tonsilitis. Duodenitis is the inflammation of the duodenum, the first portion of the small intestine connected to the outlet of the stomach. This is the same location for most peptic ulcers, hence duodenal ulcers. The inflammation is usually caused by too much stomach acid and problems closely related to ulcers. A bland diet is useful in treating duodenitis. So are antiacids. Cigarettes, alcohol, coffee and colas should be stopped. Coffee is a frequent cause of the problem. Unless one changes his habits, duodenitis can progress to an ulcer. In many ways they are the same thing, only one has resulted in ulceration. � * * Dear Dr. Lamb - I am a woman of 45. I've never had a serious illness or operation. For the past 25 years I've eaten two eggs every day, seven days a week. Am I liable to have a heart attack? Dear Reader - Heart attacks are caused by many factors including the amount one eats of anything and how much exercise a person gets. Then there is the problem of cigarettes Women are protected from heart attacks for the most part until after the menopause. By the age of 65 men and women have about the same rate of heart attacks. The Amer i c a n Heart Association recommends that one should eat no more than three eggs a week, includ ing those in cooking. I don't think your past habits neces sarily mean you are going to have a heart attack soon but it would be wiser for you to follow the three-eggs-a-week limit, Incidentally, there is a powdered egg in some dietary sec Hons that contains only one f�h as much cholestrol and fat as normal eggs.

This miniature miracle of life requires moisture, preferably sunny fresh water, teeming with scraps of organic material, bacteria and tiny algae. There are sure to be thriving ameba populations in fresh water ponds and lakes, streams and rivers. A few also exist in the surface waters of the ocean, though there they are far outnumbered by more agile relatives. Many amebas thrive in swamps and moist soils. And a few species live as parasites inside the bodies of animals and human beings.  � � The average - sized ameba measure l-100th part of an inch and a giant specimen is just about biz enough to be seen as a milky spot. They are classified with thousands of other single - celled animals of the Phylum Protozoa. Within this vast group of assorted midgets; the amebas share Class Rhizopoda with a variety of close relatives. The genuine amebas, and there are. many of them, belong in the Order Amoeba. Each species carries on all the functions of life within the soft cytoplasm of a single cell. What's more, the miniature miracle is so successful that he may achieve immortality. When time comes to reproduce, he multiplies by dividing himself into a pair of newborn twins, leaving no aging parents In a suitable environment and barring accidents, he can perpetuate his youth indefinitely, The bitsy blob may be destroyed by strong chemicals or eaten. If an accident severs him in half, one piece can restore itself to normal. He can survive a period of drought by encasing his soft body in a waterproof cyst and reducing his life activities to a minimum. Moisture is the key to his success. It provides oxygen and other vita! ingredients. The delicate membrane around his gelatinous blob of cytoplasm can select and absorb the useful chemicals and also keep out certain harmful substances This thin, elastic membrane is always changing its shape. It pokes forth fingery pseudopods and the soft cytoplasm flows into them, moving the ameba's whole body in this or that direction. The tiny hunter can detect suitable morsels and even sense the difference between a meat and vegetable course. The pseudopods surround a scrap of food, close in and absorb it to be digested inside. If the item is a passive alga cell, they move close and make a quick grab. If it is an active little animal cell, they spread wide and sneak up in slow motion to prevent escape. These minia lure safaris go on in ) Kinds and streams, where amebas teem in every drop of water, in moist soil and to some extent in the sea.  � . Naturally we consume numbers of these teeming amebas unawares. Most species do us little or no harm at all. How ever, a dangerous parasitical species thrives in soils and streams, polluted with untreated sewage contaminated with human wastes. It enters the body in the dormant cyst stage, In the warm moist intestines it sheds its shell and attacks its host. This unsanitary little par- �asite causes a serious and some times fat 1 disease called amoebic dysentery. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) BEETLE BAILEY-By Mort Walker Assures action to end U'L ABNER-By Al Capp war WASHINGTON (Reuter) -Defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird assured senators here that the United States will take whatever actions are necessary and appropriate, in compliance with congressional restrictions, to hasten the end of U.S. combat activity in Indochina. Testifying before the Senate armed services committee amid growing congressional concern about the U.S. role in Cambodia, Laird said that "the Cambodians understand that American ground combat forces and American advisers will not be introduced into their country." In a prepared statement made public as the closed-door meeting began, he said: "While we continue the reduction of American ground involvement in Indochina, we will take whatever actions are nec-e s s a r y and appropriate-in compliance, of course, with congressional actions-to hasten the end of U.S. involvement in the fighting with a minimum loss of American lives." Laird did not specifically mention the air support operations in Cambodia that he openly acknowledged at a press conference last week. However, he again maintained his determination to assist the Cambodians, but without supplying troops or advisers which are forbidden under the Cooper-Church amendment approved by Congress last year. "Under the Nixon Doctrine, we have, we will maintain, and we will use as necessary sea and air resources to supplement the efforts and the armed forces of our friends and allies who are determined to resist aggression, as the Cambodians are valiantly trying to do," Laird said. Cancel meeting on universities REGINA (CP) - A meeting between government officials of the three prairie provinces to discuss university rationalization has been postponed. Provincial Treasurer D. G. Steuart said here that the meeting, scheduled for Friday in Regina, was being delayed at the request of Premier Harry Strom of Alberta. A new date was not announced. The proposed meeting was piompted by a report to the Prairie Economic Council in December which pointed to duplication of services offered by universities in the three provinces. The report "dismayed" the premiers and it was decided to call a meeting of government and university officials to further study the matter. ARCHIE-By Bob Montana Vevek .....
