Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta IdtuKfny, July THE UrHSBIDOE HERALD IS Your horoscope By Jeans Dixon SUNDAY, JULY 4 Your Birthday today: Re- adjustment becomes a way of life for all of today's natives, including our nation, in the coming year. At the moment there is a mixture of good, bad, and indifferent news for almost everybody, on ail le- vels. Today's natives arc in- dustrious, particular about petty details, easy-going but with a changeable temper. ARIES (March 21-April You have responsibility while others are free to Joaf or play. Travel is the least favored form of action and should be off-schedule. TAUIIUS (April 20-May Scattering your lime in so many diverse directions is 'com- plicated enough, but a last- minute invitation also in- fluences your plans. GEMINI (May 21-June Your opinions find a varied au- dience, including quite a num- ber who have paid you little attention in the past. CANCER (June 21-July Social activities fill you holi- Non-freezable fur Andy sends a complete 20- v o 1 u m e set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Kevin Potter, age 10, of Calgary, Albarta, for is question: it true that wolverine fur does not freeze? It is true that the long guard hairs of wolverine do not gather people frosty claim Some that the frost does not stiffen liis thick under- layers of fur either. In any case, Eskimos treasure bands of wolverine fur on the hoods and cuffs of their parka jack- ets. In subzero weather, the furs of most animals become coated with prickly slivers of ice, ".specially where they come in contact with steamy breath and moist skin. The wolverine, sad to say, has a horrible reputation in his northern homeland. True, the Eskimos respect him and cherish his non-freezable fur. But trappers, campers and oth- er roamers in the north woods bring a long list of charges against him and rate him as the meanest character at lib- erty. As usual, almost nobody even tries to judge his alleged crimes from the wolverine's point of view. Anybody with a. gun feels quite justified in shooting him on sight. It's high time for students of ecology to review the charges against the wolverine and eval- uate his role in nature's plans. His human enemies charge that he is a most cunning char- acter, full of crafty tricks. Our defense is that he is an unusually smart animal and goodness knows the world needs all available intel- ligence. Hunters claim that the cunning thief steals bait and captured animals from their traps without getting him- self caught. Our forthright re- ply is that no person should lower his human dignity to set cruel traps for fur-bearing ani- mals. His accusers claim that he sneaks into camp and leaves everything in a shambles, sprayed with his foul odor. If these people had good sense, they would not leave their camps unprotected. Such slop- py carelessness is an unfair temptation to creatures who rightfully belong in the wilds. The wolverine is both curious and hungry by nature. He has skunk-type musk glands and sprays food and other tempting items to discourage neighbor- ing animals from thievery. He is said to be the greediest of creatures. Well, his sturdy body needs lots of meat food to ksap busy, especially in the cold. True, he preys on deer, rodents and other animals. But nature needs his healthy appe- tite to weed out the weak ones and keep animal populations within bounds, for their own good. At this point, let's remind absolutely everybody that the wolverine is an animal, it is un- fair and rather ridiculous to judge him by human qualities. From our point of view, such things as stealing and van- dalism are backward and weak-minded qualities. But the wolverine does not understand our point of view in these mat- ters. He just does what comes naturally to na- ture needs him to be just the way he is. When we see things fairly, from his point of view, the wolverine is a splendid ani- mal. The handsome fellow is the giant of the weasel tribe. His strong, sturdy body may be thi ee feet long, plus a bushy 14-inch tail. He belongs to the very best dressed mammal family and his smaller cousins are the snow ermines and silky minks, the busy badgers and waterproof otters. His dark brown coat is extra thick and his long, shiny guard hairs are rather coarse. These super- smooth hairs may explain why the frost fails to form prickly icicles on his fur. Andy sends a World Book Globe to Cynthia Dick, age 10, of Covington, Oklahoma, for her question: Is it true that some animals have no mothers and fathers? In the animal world there are many types of family life. Some are not what you might expect. But all living creatures come from a generation of ani- mals just like themselves. It is true that some of them do not spring from mothers and fatti- ers. Most of these creatures are tiny single-celled animals, such as the amoeba. This little blob of jelly does everything, absolutely everything by divid- ing himself into a pair of iden- tical twins. This requires no mother or father and no par- j ent generation is left behind to grow old and die. Other smallish creatures have even more surprising family lives. One of these is our gentle little earthworm. He or she is both a mother and a father. Every worm has a mother and a father. But his mother is the father of another batch tf their mother is his father. Family life in the animal world is fll of amazing surprises.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Historic Banff site will be demolished BANFF (CP) The cave and basin swimming pools, built near a warm sulphur spring and marking the birth- place of C a n a d a' s national parks system, will have to be demolished within five years, says park superintendent S. F. Kun. The building may have to be closed sooner if it becomes a Dublic hazard. "It cannot be operated much longer; the walls are perishing and some of the pipes are al- ready badly corroded." Last year the pools cost 000 to operate and brought in revenue of he said, and that was an efficient year. An interpretative centre would be built on the site when the pools are demolished.

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) Smuggling ring TORONTO An inter- national crime ring smuggled Europeans, including almost en- tire villages of Italians, into the United States in 1970 by way of Canada, Attorney-General Allan Lawrence of Ontario says. He tabled in the legislature the annual report of the Ontario Police Commission which said "large-scale" smuggling of al- iens into the U.S. through Can- ada became a new category of organized crime in Ontario dur- ing 1970. Mr. lawrence told reporters outside the house that once the Europeans reached the U.S., they were held "in bondage" to the crime ring which could turn a profit from extortion and blackmail. Mr. Lawrence refused to dis- close the number of victims but described the number as "pretty substantial." SOME ENTER LEGALLY He hinted that some of the al- iens entered Canada legally. Mr. Lawrence said in a state- ment to the legislature that when the Ontario Police Com- mission learned of the ring, it called a meeting earlier this year of officials from Canadian and United States immigration departments and "representa- tives of all the major law en- forcement agencies." At subsequent meetings, po- lice and immigration officials drew up a system to co-ordinate intelligence reports and pass them on to police forces dealing with immigration. "In this way the utilization of our intelligence services has permitted us to deal rapidly and effectively with this Mr. Lawrence said. Besides the new crime in On- tario of smuggling aliens into the U.S., the commission re- ported "considerable concern" about the threat of infiltration of legitimate businesses by or- ganized crime. Entire Japanese cabinet cpiits TOKYO Jap- anese cabinet submitted its resignation today to clear the way for a major reshuffle by Premier Eisaku Sato. Sato is expected to announce his new appointments to gov- ernment and key posts of his governing Liberal Democratic party within the next two or three days. The entire cabinet resigna- tion follows the poor perform- ance of Sato's party in an upper house of Parliament election last Sunday. Its majority was sliced by one despite predic- tions it would gain an addi- tional 10 seats. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.
