Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE UTHBRIGS HERAID - Friday, January 29, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SATURDAY, JAN. 30 Your Birthday Today: For several months your main attention should be given to consolidation of your progress thus far. Somewhere about the middle of your year your whole direction changes and you are on the move. AKIES (March 21 - April 19): Cooperation is easy. Just ask reasonably and early enough. Getting endorsement from prominent citizens for local projects is less difficult than you think. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Don't count on any prearranged schedule to be followed. Let others tear around in circles- they'll wind up in about the same place. Concerts, live entertainment, promise pleasure. GEMINI (May 21-Jiinc 20): LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. World's numbers game: what rules must be set? Dear Dr. Lamb - Apparently you don't feci that your comments on optimal levels apply to numbers of people. Why? The United States, with a population of less than seven per cent of the world's total, now consumes over half of the world's total resources. At current growth rates our population will double in about 63 years. Don't you think it is about time to begin thinking in terms of optimal levels for population too? If not now, when? Dear Reader - Hear! Hear! Don't get so excited. Of course I believe in an optimal level of population. I am concerned though about how it is going to be enforced and whether a society that enforces population control is so desirable. Just what are you proposing to do to people after they have had two children? Gas chambers? Forced sterilization? Your comment has another side. Obviously, from your statement, 93 per cent of the world's population is using less than half the world's total resources. Why not start with doing more about what people do? The "solution to pollution" may not be limited to population control. Education of the masses in population control is a useful approach. But enforcement? Incidentally, the population figures previously projected for the United States have already been revised DOWNWARD. * * * Dear Dr. Lamb - I have arthritis in my right hand, the two middle fingers. I am a bowler and this year my index finger is really giving me trouble. It swells so bad it can hardly move and when I do try to use it, the knuckle snaps and cracks. It is really painful. I would like to know what I can do for it and if I keep bowling will the knuckle fuse itself or cause me any disability? Dear Reader - I hope you have seen a doctor. Arthritis should at least be seen by a doctor to determine if it is the inflammatory type or the more common degenerative type. I suspect you have the latter type. That form is prone to occur in the joint that is overused. In either case, while exercise of a joint is important to keep it from fusing, the type of exercise should not create a strain or heavy weight-bearing. A heavy bowling ball is not in that category. I am afraid that if you persist in this type of activity your joint will indeed get worse and you will have to give up more than bowling. � * * Dear Dr. Lamb - Is it possible for a person to write right - handed and be left-handed? I do everything (almost) but write - and sometimes eat - left-handed. Would I be a southpaw? Dear Reader - Usually, people have both right- and left-handed traits. It is not all or nothing. If the world were not right-hand oriented, many babies would grow up with more left-handed characteristics. The baby is often trained to use the right hand when he would otherwise have used the left. Edmonton doctor new president BANFF (CP) - Dr. A. G. Blunden of Edmonton was elected president of the Alberta branch of the College of Family Physicians of Canada during the provincial group's annual convention. He succeeds Dr. G. D. H. McQuitty who is associated with the department of family medicine at the University of Calgary. Now you have a chance to show your skill as a trouble-shooter. You may not know how to fix whatever it is, but you can point out what's wrong. Keep everybody happy and laughing. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Your early progress is rather sluggish, but later hours move at a more rapid pace. There's productive achievement by the end of the day. Plan a quiet evening at home.' LEO (July 23  Aug. 22): Think of today as a short vacation; skip the chores and routines. Social activity seems unavoidable. Choose c h e e r ful friends, assume good intentions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 2): Adjust your plans to fit those of loved ones. Early impulses give you a good line to follow. Find enough physical activity to give you a good workout. LIBRA (Sept. 23  Oct. 22): Enjoy the esthetic aspects of life - find beauty in whatever you see and whatever is happening. Have a little cash on hand for a whim. SCORPIO (Oct. 23  Nov. 21): Mobilize your energy. Use your muscles on adventurous recreation or to help bring about changes. In the evening, dress up. Give everybody around you something to think about, t SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your enthusiasm spills over both early and late - try to keep a good balance between work and play. Romantic interest blossoms. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 10): You are likely to near a candid evaluation of yourself from somebody you never expected. Listen and learn. Understanding of some social situation dawns suddenly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Take your mind off serious business and enjoy a complex pattern of homework, social activity, exercise and creature comforts. Gather good friends about you in the evening. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): There is much to discuss, most of it encouraging and interesting. You learn more than you tell by keeping alert. Numerous errands must be attended. Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Stephen Wowkowych, age 11, of Rochester, New York, for his question: Why do we get snow instead of hailUn winter? When it comes to the weather, ;.t is never safe to say that something is downright impossible. Summer spells may surprise us in mid-winter arid snow flurries have been known to arrive out of season. Once in a while, a raging hurricane blows way off course and sometimes after winter sets in, Indian summer brings a warm spell. Hail is unusual in the snowy, winter season, but not impossible. Naturally there are reasons why we are more likely to get snow instead of hail during the winter months. � * � Hailstones are quite complex little pellets, created by complex weather conditions. Snow-flakes are delicate designs assembled by a very different set of weather conditions. As a rule, the snow-making situation can and does occur at any season of year, day or. night. Hailstorms occur quite frequently on winter nights over the oceans and also, of all places, in Iceland. In Northern Europe, a cold winter polar front may start off with a barrage of hail pellets and the snow falls later. Snow flakes are built from minuscule crystals of ice, froz- Medical x-rays killers DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) - The most serious peacetime radiation threat is not nuclear power plants but ordinary medical and dental x-rays, radiation specialists Dr. Kar. Z. Morgan said here. Medical x-rays are responsible for 3,300 deaths a year in the United States and may lead to as many as 46,000 deaths in future generations because of genetic damage, he said in an address at Davidson College. Dr. Morgan, director of the health physics division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, said in contrast, that GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN [e mil ir Tin CNu* Tritwt] Both vulnerable. South deals, NORTH  Q74 V 8743 OKJ * J�8� west east  A102 A J 9X3 Pass 3 A Pus 4 A Pass 5 * Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Three of A South, the declarer at fiva clubs, was the victim of a myopic affliction. Had he been able to project himself mentally across the table as he mapped his campaign, a sizable loss might well have been avoided. West opened the three of clubs which proved to be a most effective choice. Declarer won the trick with the ten in his own hand as East discarded a spade. A spade was led toward dummy and, when West played low, North's queen was put up to hold the trick. The king of diamonds was cashed followed by the jack which was overtaken with the queen. Declarer now played the ace of diamonds with the intention of discarding a spade from dummy to that he might eventually obtain a spade ruff. West foiled his efforts by ruffing the third diamond, obliging the dummy to overruff. There was no way for South to avoid the loss of two spade tricks which together with a heart loser spelled a one trick set. Declarer had his eye on the wrong hand. Had the dummy been made the master holding-defeat could have been turned into victory. When South learns of the bad trump break at trick one, he should endeavor to increase his winners by trumping North's hearts. The first trick should be won by South with the queen of clubs and the queen of hearts is led at once. Suppose that West puts up the ace in order to lead another trump. The eight of clubs holds the trick and a heart is ruffed with the king of trumps. A spade may now be led toward dummy's queen and West is obliged to duck to avoid setting up two tricks in the suit. Another heart is ruffed with the ace of clubs and the ten is led to the jack so that North can complete the drawing of trumps. On the nine of clubs, South discards a spade. He now has seven tricks In-one spade, two heart ruffs and four clubs. By cashing the four high diamonds he may routinely increase the total to 11. A simple case of dummy reversal. statistics indicate nuclear industries are responsible for only 18 deaths a year and may lead to 140 deaths in subsequent generations. Dr. Morgan, editor of the Journal of Health Physics and a member of the national and international committees on radiation protection, said: "There can be no threshold dose so low that the probability of serious damage is zero." No dosage of x-rays or any other kind of radiation is completely safe, he said. Natural background radiation alone, from cosmic rays, uranium and other natural sources, is responsible for 20,000 deaths a year in the United States in terms of genetic damage, cancer and a shortening of life spans, Dr. Morgan said. The biggest offenders in medical x-rays, be added, are dental x-rays and photofluorographic x-rays, as frequently used by mobile units to give chest x-rays to large numbers of people.

The air must be at least 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature at which liquid water normally freezes to solid ice. Often the air is super-cooled below this temperature before the creation of the ice crystals begins. The intricate job of assembling the tiny crystals in lacy snow-flakes also may require below freezing temperatures. Summer does not provide such chilly conditions, which is why snow is a wintry weather event. Hail formation requires a weather confrontation between different air masses - warm and cool, damp and dry. The basic conditions are caused by the heating and cooling of different levels of the atmosphere, from the surface of the globe up to perhaps seven miles. This creates a steep temperature gradient, similar to those that trigger summer thunderstorms, when the surface level is in the 80s and the air aloft is way below freezing. A steep temperature gradient also occurs when the lower air level is near freezing and the upper level chills way below zero. This sort of weather condition is responsible for the winter hailstorms that fall on Iceland. A similar situation produces hail on winter nights over the oceans. After sunset tbe upper air chills very fast. But the watery ocean tends to hold onto the heat it absorbed during the day, creating a steep temperature gradient likely to give birth to thunderstorm* and pellets of hail. *   Some people claim that the weather may become too cold to snow. This is not likely, though snow falls less frequently when temperatures drop way below zero. Cold air contains less of the vapor needed to form basic ice crystal for building snowflakes. As the air cools, it can hold less vapor and tends to become drier. However, some vapor is always present and weather conditions never really get too cold for snow. *   Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Jacqueline Sauve, age 12, of Ville He Perrot, Quebec, for her question: ' Who invented spaghetti? Italians have been creating spaghetti dishes since the 1300s and they introduced them to Europe and America. But historians tell us that they did not invent the original recipe. The credit for this- goes to the Chinese, who also invented paper and fireworks and the magnetic compass. Chinese cooks have been using spaghetti-type paste to make their noodles for so many centuries that nobody remembers how or when it all began. The popular recipe was taken to Italy, probably in the 14th century. Some people say that Marco Polo brought it around 1295, from his fabulous travels in China. But though he later wrote a very detailed account of everything ho did there, he made no mention of the marvelous recipe. He established a route that many travelers followed during the next century. Historians suspect that the original Chinese recipe was taken to Italy some lime in the 1300s, either by returning traders or missionaries.
