Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE UTHBRIDCE HERALD Towdoy, July 3, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEAN 6 DIXON WEDNESDAY, JULY 4 Your birthday today: The gift o! being able to see our- selves as others see us is the ideal birthday present to pray for. Today's natives, like our nation, are embarked on a long, difficult striving for spiritual growth which in- volves bard choices, and ex- tensive study of all relations. Today's natives are indus- trious, subject to tempera- ment. ARIES (March 21-April Your way to a safe and sane boBday may not be easy or direct, and may involve less travel than you usually want.

Public amusements provide many happy diversions. CANCER (June 21-July Reach within yourself today, touch base, re-state your views of the future and what you hope to achieve. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. How to use exercise bike Dear Dr. Lamb With all the emphasis on exercising to- day, I feel my husband and I do not get enough of it. We bought an exercising bike. What I would like to know is, how can we go about it. I mean, how much time to start with, and how should we increase the time. I have started with five minutes three times a day. Am I overdoing it? Dear Reader There isn't any set rule for this. If also de- pends a lot on the type of exer- cise bicycle you're using. Some are fixed so you can adjust the tension on the wheel and thereby increase the load. Peo- ple who are in reasonably good physical condition to start with can obviously begin at a high- er level than those who are un- accustomed to any significant amounts of physical exercise. In general, and it has to be sim- ply a general rule of thumb for the person I have not seen and not been able to examine or know what his exercise his- tory is, I suggest that he start at a very low level. Of course, if he already has any medical problems be is aware of, he should talk to the doctor be- fore beginning any exercise program. For the individuals who ap- pear to be in good health and bare just not had any signifi- cant amounts of exercise, I us- ually suggest that they start bicycling for three to five min- utes at a speed which is com- fortable for them and at a tension which doesn't create very much stress on the legs. That is, it should be comfort- able and well within the cap- acity of the person without any strain. Then, the amount of exercise can be increased about a minute a week. Always make certain to stay witian a com- fortable speed and tension on the wheel and never exercise at a rate that makes you feel that the tegs are working too hard or that it causes the heart to beat too fast. If you wast to take your heart rate white you're exercising, you can usually do it. For medically exercise you try to keep your heart rate below 120 beats per min- ute while exercising. If the exercise effort causes your heart to beat any faster than this, you are either pumping too fast or the tension has been turned too tight on the exer- cise bicycle. Exercise bicycles are fine be- cause they can be placed in front of the television set. In- dividuals who spend much time in front of the television set are the very ones who often need Ae exercise, and. the exercise should be something besides teaching for potato chips and dip or, just as bad, bending the elbow. It also provides a way of occupying yourself while you're doing exercise. Pedaling at a very slow rate without any heavy load on the bicycle dur- ing your favorite television pro- gram is a good way to program a daily exercise activity. Exer- cise done during the evening newscast, for example, com- bines keeping you well inform- ed and keeping you in shape. Exercise bicycles also have the advantage of eliminating the jarring effect that some- times occurs with jogging and running type programs. They can also be used by individuals who have balance problems but are still able to do some exer- cise. Then, of course, they can be used in all kinds of weather indoors.

Theories come to test, and it may be that most economy measures cost more than they save, all things considered. PISCES (Feb. 19-March The problem of being agree- able to all is that eventually you're equally committed to conflicting plans. 1373, The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy Antoine Lavoisier Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Steph- en Tannerbaum, age 10, of Toronto, Ontario, for his ques- tion: Who was Lavoisier? Once in a great while, some body special solves a key prob- lem that makes life easier foi everybody. For example, way back before the dawn of his tory some forgotten person in vented the wheel. In the 1600s Isaac Newton solved the laws of gravity, plus several other key science problems. And in the 1700s, several more key sci ence were solved by Lavoisier. Antoine Laurent Lavoisier was bom in France in 1743 and lived 51 years. Scientists' use only his last name, which is pronounced Lah-vwa-ZYAY, be- cause he rates among the great brains of history. He solved the mystery of fire, help- ed to work out our system of GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN e mt, IIMN Neither vulnerable. South deals.

He cashed the king of diamonds and ruffed a diamond in dummy. Unfortu- nately, East overruffed and returned a high club, and declarer had to lose two more trump tricks for down one. "Everything was wrong, he moaned. While this department- sympathizes with declarer's bad tack, the main reason that the contract failed was that declarer did not count his tricks. If we assume that' trumps are going to divide 3- 2 and that, therefore, declar- er has no more than two trump losers, be has ten, tricks available without a fi- nesse or a diamond ruff. Declarer should plan to limit his losses to two hearts and a spade. Accordingly, after ruffing the first trick, declarer should immediately play ace of hearts and an- other. Assume East wins and forces declarer to tuff a dub. Declarer simply contin- ues with the ace, king, and ten of spades. One of the defenders will be forced to win with the queen, and dummy's jack of spades Witt be established for a diamond discard while the ace of dia- for enby purposes. Note that, to employ this line, declarer should win a diamond shift in his own hand if East switches his attack alter winning the jack of hearts. chemical formulas and wrote the very first textbook on chemistry. Lake Newton and other great thinkers, Lavoisier was interested in many differ- ent things especially in the everyday problems of every- day people. As a young man, Lavoisier studied math and astronomy, plants and the weather and his favorite subject, which was chemistry. At that time, scien- tists thought that fire was a mysterious process which they called phlogiston. Lavoisier questioned this idea and later in life he did his own research on the nature of fire. He was the first to prove the truth of what really hap- pens when things burn. He showed that a fire does not de- stroy anything, as it seems to do. It merely changes sub- stances into other substances. For example, the flames of a campfire do not destroy the material in the logs. They merely change the solid wood into invisible gases plus a small pile of ashes. Lavoisier also showed that a very slow burning process goes on in our bodies. It changes fuel substances and gives off warmth. He proved that this slow combustion and all other burning processes use up oxy-' gen gas to keep going. He weighed many careful experi- ments to show that nothing is lost. Then he worked out a shorthand system of chemical symbols to explain these won- ders to the rest of the world. Meantime this busy man found time to teach chemistry students, to invent a simplified system of tax collecting and to take part in politics. He aslo ran a model farm and found ways to make this work easier and better for everybody. His work in agriculture was appre- ciated by the fanners and the whole world of science ap- preciated his original work in chemistry. But the struggling peasants of France detested his system of taxes. Lavoisier lived when the peo- ple of France, were fed up with oaying taxes to keep their ex- travagant kings in lavish lux- ury. When the French Revolu- tion broke out, the king and countless aristocrats were be- headed. Later the people were swayed by savage rebels who beheaded many who had done 30 harm. On May 17, 1794, Lavoisier and 27 others were a one-sided trial that lasted less than a day. That afternoon, this great man was executed.
