Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wedneiday, July 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE THURSDAY, JULY 9 Your liirlhilay today: Ad- justment is the keyword for the coming year. There seem to be tenfold as many details to consider, more people to deal with, increased respon- sibility. Sentimental ventures thrive, particularly long es- tablished relationships. To- day's natives often excel in studies of human nature and ethics. If they are not schem- ers, they attract attention from schemers. ARIES (March 21 April This should be a day of nor- mality in all tilings that really count. Count your blessings, show extra consideration for your loved ones. TAURUS (April 20 May Your mind now seems more ac- tive than your physical nature. Overlook comments and keep your good humor. Romance ad- vances a step nearer perfec- tion. GEMINI (May 21 June Forbearance on your part av- Youth Column Chess Champion Faces Problems EDMONTON (CP) Jan Krotki wants to become a world-ranked chess player, but a late start and inexperi- ence may prevent ths Cana- dian junior champion from achieving his goal. "I became interested in chess at the age of 10 but that's too said Krotki, 18, who won the junior title in 1968 at Toronto. "You should start playing this game when you're six, like they do in the Soviet Union." Another problem was living in the wrong country. "It's just too difficult to find suitable opponents in Edmon- ton, and for that matter in Western Canada." Although he admits his chances of becoming a grand master are slim, the quiet- talking youth believes he still has a chance with more inter- national competition and the help of chess literature. "After all, there are 66 grand masters in the world, including one from Canada, so it takes plenty of work and in- ternational competition even to get close." WON JUNIOR CROWN KrotM's only international experience came in the 1969 world junior championship at Stockholm, Sweden, where he finished 21st out of 38. He was seventh over-all in the 1968 Canadian open tournament, but was the best A-class player, giving him the junior crown. "I have to be realistic about moving up among the best in Canado and the said Krotki, who plans to take a year's leave from the Univer- sity of Alberta to earn some money and improve his game. Hippies Taboo On Christmas Toys List LONDON (AP) A lead- ing British toy producer predicted today that war toys would still be the big- gest sellers this Christmas. Cowboys and Indians are still popular, too. Hippies' are out. Peter Mason, sales mana- ger of Airfix Products Ltd., said: "We have found, unfortun- ately, that items with guns sell better than items with- out guns. It there werent' so wars, riots, and police actions in the world, maybe war wouldn't get such good publicity. But now, the de- mand for war toys is tre- mendous." His first introduced its Christmas toys in a special showing. Krotki, who speaks with a Polish accent and "couldn't care less for other said concentration and talent are key factors in becoming a highly rated chess player. "One of the reasons women aren't very good chess play- ers is the fact that they can't concentrate. You must be able to keep your mind on the game. "But it's also essential to be in good physical shape be- cause you're subjected to nearly four hours a game of mental strain 'in major tour- naments." Krotki, who plans to attend the 1970 Canadian open tour- nament in St. John's, Nfld., stressed reading "chess liter- ature" as one of the major ways of improving one's play. He has about 30 books oh chess along with other litera- ture which describes moves of other players through dia- grams. LEARN BY DIAGRAM "I've learned a lot by just sitting down by myself and playing the game the way the diagrams show. It has helped me to pick up key moves which I might never have known." Krotki took on 27 players at one time in Cieszyn, Poland, and 24 Edmonton high school students, but shrugged this off as a simple feat. "The world record is 450 players simultaneously. It took this guy Hires days to play against that number. It took me about three hours." Krotki says chess could de- velop in Canada as a major competition "but it likely won't because people would rather watch somebody else do something." "The majority of people in North America make little use of their leisure time. Instead of doing nothing they could take up chess as a hobby. "It stimulates your mind and has other beneficial as- pects. Besides you can always tell the personality and char- acter of your opponent through certain moves he makes during a game." erts differences today and pro- tects your welfare tomorrow.

Mini-Bike Ads Under Attack TORONTO (CP) The Ontario Safety League has called for an end to mini- bike advertisements di- rected at young people. George Ham, manager of the league's family safety department, said here he is "not happy about the the concept of young chil- dren riding a vehicle capa- ble of speeds up to 40 miles per hour." "A child capable of riding a pedal bike cannot control one of these." Mr. Ham spoke out against mini-bikes following the death Sunday of a 12- year-old boy who was struck by a car while riding his bike across a street. THE WELL. CHILD Flies Have A Place In Nature's Scheme By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Enterprises Assn. Flies have an uncanny wa of being wherever peopte are whether in mountains or va leys, farms or cities, Canada o Mexico. On the credit side the act as scavengers of dead an mals and plants, they poUinat plants and nourish birds an fish. This should be reaso enough not to seek their total elimination. Since it cannot be denied tha they are capable of spreadin disease to man, some form o peaceful co existence must be sought. When they are ouf doors, adopt a policy of live- and-let-live but once they sli into your house they should be killed so that they will not con laminate your food. And speaking of food: In 1964 a group of women in Toront organized an information ser vice to help the victims of di etary.problems. This non profl organization, "Allergy Inform in addition to diets for various allergies provides diets for persons with ceh'ac disease sprue and other types of faulty absorption.

Pass Opening lead: 'King of V A forcing game, devised by West in defending against (South's four spade contract, fell short of its goal when East failed to extend a full measure of cooperation. West opened the king of hearts, and tho ace was played from dummy. The ten of diamonds was led at trick two, East followed with tha deuce, and West won the trick tho king. The latter played the queen of hearts South ruffed The king of spades was led and West put up the ace and returned the jack of hearts, forcing South to ruff again. Declarer'proceeded to draw the remaining trump, tho ft took all of his hearts to do so. A diamond was led to the nine to dislodge East's ace; however, the latter had no hearts left and he was obliged to put South in on the return. Declarer claimed the remains ing (ricks with high and clubs. East could have assured declarer's downfall by putting up the ace of diamonds at trick two, thereby conserving one of Hs partner's entries. A heart is returned and South ruffs. West jets in with king of diamonds to rcduco declarer down to his size in trumps. i South will presumably cash the queen of diamonds and discard North's remaining heart to .prevent another force. When West gets in with the ace of spades, however, a heart return gives his partner an opportunity to uppercut declarer by ruffing with tho ten of spades. South overruffa with the jack, but West's nine, of trumps becomes estab- lished lot the setting trick. The "splashdown" went off at exactly 10 a.m. EDT but it took the five scientists ii minutes to swim to their quarters because underwater photographers kept posing them for pictures. The five will conduct scien- tific programs along the coral reefs, ranging, as far as feet from their living quarters. They are taking part in Tek- tite II, a seven-month program of underwater research, with 16 all-male teams of aquanauts. The program began in April and is being conducted by the United States department of the interior, other government agencies, private industry and universities.

Margaret Ann Lucas, 23, an electrical engineer at the Uni- versity of Delaware. She will run the habitat and act as a spare diver. The habitat, two J8-foot-high steel cylinders 12% feet in di- ameter, serve as a laboratory and living quarters. The aquanaut are monitored 24 hours a day in case of emcr- g e n c y. Behavioral scientists also monitor them to determine low semi-isolation in confined quarters will affect them.
