Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Tueiday, July 6, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon WEDNESDAY, JULY 7 Your birthday today. Your life comes into sharper, clearer focus this year. Many questions are outgrown or settled by definite answers from resources you've never used before. Today's natives talk less than they act, are gifted in uneven directions which do not often bring much material surplus. ABIES (March 21 April Status depends on things be- Ping-pong Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Jim Palandri, age 9, of Eugene, Oregon, for his question: Who invented ping-pong? People started playing this merry game about 87 years who thought of it. But in the year 18S4, a London catalogue listed the items needed to play what they called the minia- ture-game-of-lawn-tennis.' In ro time at all, people were ago. It started in England But t'abte eb g heard aboi soon they also had fun batting those boimcy little balls. It seems that everybody who heard about it wanted to play the jolly game. People were soon plaving it in almost every country in the world. About 48 years ago. the ping-pong play- ers of the world organized meetings and tournaments. In 1971, one of those bouncy tour- naments helped to bring a little more friendly peace into the world. The British people love to play tennis outdoors on their green grassy lawns. But weather there tends to the be rainy and the green grassy lawns get too soggy. In the 1880s, when your great grand- parents were in school, the British people solved their sog- gy tennis problems. They in- vented s mini-game of tennis that they could play indoors, rain or no rain. We don't know Complaints linked with push-ups PARKIS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) Long sessions of push-ups may have caused kidney trouble for 39 recruits sent to hospital at Parris Island U.S. Marine Corps base, an officer said Mon- day. Capt. M. R. Arnold, public af- fairs officer, said preliminary indications were that (he mar- ines' "kidney c o m p 1 a i nts' might be connected with too much exercise. He said the recruits com- plained that exercise sessions lasted 15-20 minutes each. Mar- ine corps regulations specify no more than five minutes of vigor- ous calisthenics at a time. Three drill instructors were replaced pending an investiga tion. Arnold said the replacemen of the drill instructors was not a disciplinary action. He said an investigation would determine whether disciplinary action warranted. Authorities at the base hospi tal said all of the recruits were in satisfactory condition. styling ooisifle new luxury inside with famous go-anywhere 4-Wheel Drive KST-DRIVF THE S-CAR CAR TODAY UNITED MOTORS CO.

In 1891, James Gibbs f America introduced players bounder balls made of cel- uloid plastic. The next year, Charles Barter of England in- balls made of cork, spe- jal clamps to hold the net on he table and oblong shaped ackets made of fine wood. All this time, everybody call- id it table tennis. Then in 1900, a British firm renamed it ping- tong and registered the new lame. The next year the name and the rights were sold to 'arker Brothers, an American irm. These two firms set strict rules for playing ping-pong. However, many players thought these rules were too 5trict. Around 1920, players rom many countries planned o make the merry game more r i e n d 1 y. They decided to change the name ping-pong back to table tennis. And in .926 they organized the ITTF International Table Ten- nis Federation. ____ For 30 j'ears or so, the ITTF held world tournaments every year. People from many coun- ries competed for champion- ships. Since 1957, these con- tests have been held once ev- ery two years. As a rule, not many people paid much atten- to these international s. But this year something rather wonderful happened. The great countries of America and China had not seen speaking to each for a long time. But their table ten- nis teams met at the world ta- ble tennis contest. Later the American team was invited to play in China. This turned out to be one of the happiest news items of the year. We don't know who actually invented the marvelous game of ping-pong, alias table tennis. But people around the world soon adopted it from the En- glish, who played it first, al- most 90 years ago. In the 1920s, it was a very popular family game, then many families for- got about it. Now the grand game has made a bit of world history and let's hope that it becomes popular once again.

I have cold hands and feet and much cramping at night. After sex- ual intercourse blood in semen after ejaculation. What could cause tliis? I am full of pep most of the time. I exercise and watch my diet. I am 81 years young and my doctor said I could still father babies. How about that? Dear Reader Yes, how about thst. You are just a spring chicken compared to some men who have fathered children. I suspect the most common cause for the blood you mention is an inflamma- tion of either your prostate gland or the seminal ves- icles. The latter are little tiny pouches like saddle-bags next to the prostate, where semen is stored. Unless it is treated you may not have as much pep as you now have. An infection anywhere can eventually de- crease a person's energy level. Some people even have fever from inflammation of the pros- tate. This is not the same thing as simple enlargement but an acute infection analogous to having an acutely infected throat or sinuses.

This time the thyroid was overactive and had caused her to become very nervous. He did not give any medication for this but after about two months, the thyroid was normal. She still has occa- sional bouts of nervousness, possibly associated with her pe- riod and the gland. Please ex- plain how her thryoid went from underactive to overactive and then to normal with no medication in about eight months. Dear Reader The body is a curious, wonderful ma- chine. Years ago when there were less satisfactory methods for treating overactive thyroid conditions doctors became aware that their thyroid pa- tients could have overactive thyroid conditions in the spring and fall. And don't ask me why. The gland seems to have cycles of more or less activity. If your daughter had in fact had a normal thyroid at the be- ginning the small amount oi thyroid given would not have had any influence. The thyroid gland would simply put out less thyroid hormone. So that has nothing to do with her case.
