Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Thunday, 8, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon I FRIDAY. JULY 9 Your birthday today: Those bom near sunrise will e e 1 poignant expressions within issues of marriage, partnership, competition. All will fed an impetus toward self reliance, independent opinions, spontaneous action. Today's natives usually are astute students of human na- ture. ARIES (March 21-April Anything you do is noticed; in effect you are the playwright, create your own public image. A high opinion of yourself brings in a good picture. TAURUS (April 20-May Scattering energy is inevit- able. New sparks arise from r o m a n tic contacts, relation- ships are tested in fast chang- ing moods. GEMINI (May 21 June Within the little choices you make are the seeds of major changes of direction in the Light makes colors Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Cindy Fer- rie, age 12, of Vancouver, Bri- tish Columbia, for her ques- tion: Is it true that lisht makes col- oring? In the world of nature, very few things happen all by them- selves. Almost always, several different things work together as a team to make things ap- pen. This is the story behind the colors we see in the world around us. Part of the project is performed by special chem- icals called pigments. But they need the help of light rays to show us their colors. Red roses and bright blue ribbons lose their colors in the dark. But switch on a light or wait for the sunrise and there they are, bedecked in their colors. The colors of roses and rib- bons are caused by very com- plicated collisions on a very small scale. Jn any collision, at least one of the parties must be moving. In this case, it is light, traveling at. the break- neck speed of 186.000 miles per second. Color appears when rays of light strike certain ob- jects and bounce back for our eyes to see. The tilings we see are really pictures or images. Straight rays of light fall upon the scenery, turn around and zoom tow'ard us in straight lines all at the fantastic speed of 669.600.000 miles per hour. This fantastically fast event is complicated because light is a complicated form of energy. Daylight is radiant energy that the sun sheds in all directions. It travels in straight lines, but in different wavelengths of pul- sing energy. The wavelengths have crests and troughs, some- what like the w a v e s of the ocean. Every sunbeam is a package of countless different wavelengths, all blended togeth- er to make white, or colorless light. However, a sunbeam of white light is colorless only when travejng. This changes, for ex- ample, when it strikes a red rose or a blue ribbon. The col- lision separates some of its dif- ferent wavelengths. The rose petals happen to contain a pig- ment chemical that absorbs al] the medium and short waves. The longer waves bounce ofl and our eyes see them as red color. The different wave lengths of light have their own colors. But they cannot show them unless they are separated from all the other wavelengths. The rSg- ment in a bow of blue ribbon absorbs 'all the longer rays of light. This tune the short waves bounce back and we see them as blue color. The colors of light are reveal- ed in the rainbow, when slant- ing sunbeams strike fall- ing drops of rain. There we see them arranged in orderly bands of red, orange and yel- low, green, blue and violets. This is called the color spec- trum of light. The shortest waves show the blue rays. The wavelengths of each color band grow longer toward the red end of (he spectrum. All the colors we see come from these wave- lengths of light Roses, ribbons and other col- orful objects contain chemical pigments Green leaves absorb all the wave lengths except green and bounce off the greens tor us to see. A snowly lily takes no wave lengths from light. All of them bounce off and we see the original blend of white light. A black button ab- sorbs all the light waves and re see no colors al all. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Michael Doherty, age 12, of Montreal, Quebec, for his question: Does the. chimpanzee rate as a future. Let intuition lead the larger opportunity. CANCER (June 21 July The other fellow should have the b'nefit of the doubt and you should also. If you feel your world is somewhat uneven, seek to improve your share in the situation. LEO (July 23 Aug. Don't casually alienate those willing to help you. Settle any differences and disentangle yourself from unnecessarily complex arrangements. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Some of your pet theories are under test, at short notice. Be ready to pick up the pieces, re- evaluate, rewrite. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Playing it safe means less return or leaving well enough alone. Seek technical advice where you are not expert. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Decide what you want to do, work out a fairly complete plan, then make sure every- to body concerned knows his share of it quite well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Emotional surges, ex- pressions of frustration, can get you into untenable or uncomfortable situations. Wait for the full slory. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Your concise approach to long-standing problems prom- ises finally to trigger serious changes. Choose carefully. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. You enter a high tide of persuasive powers, sales- manship, capabilities. Unload any white elephants you are sheltering. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mnrch Odd people intrigue you and find your comments provoca- tive. Associates may not understand, may even come up with their own mythology of what happens.

The le- murs and tarsiers, the squirrel monkeys, macaques and others are subdivided into separate families of the primate order. The chimpanzee is classified in the Family Pongidae, another separate group of the mon- key order. His family, however, is a small group of very spe- cial monkey type animals. They have larger brains, no tails and most of them have extra long arms. These extra special pri- mates are called the great apes. One is the slender, silky gibbon of Burma. Another is the bulky 200 pound orangutan of Bor- neo. Another is the six foot, 450 pound gorilla of the Afri- can Congo and finally there is the charming chimpanzee. He may stand only five feet tall and weigh only 150 pounds. But to most of us he outshines the other great apes and perhaps all the other monkey type pri- mates as well.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Dear Dr. Lamb I have a constipation problem. I was ad- vised to drink two bottles of beer every night before retir- ing. I started this a number of years ago and it helped. Is there any harm in this? Will it cause cancer? Reader J don't usu- ally recommend the regular use of alcohol. However, there are certain medical indications for it. If two bottles of beer at night have relieved your con- stipation, that, is better than iccoming a slave to the laxa- Jve habit. Beer should not re- jlace developing a good bowel labit and a proper diet. It also jas lots of calories. Perhaps his is no problem to you but or some people it is. Beer does not cause cancer. Dear Dr. Lamb Is it pos- sible for a rather fat young ady to carry a baby for nine whole months and not know of her condition until labor pains start and she goes to the hospi- :al emergency room to find out vhat is wrong and the doctor tells her she is about to have a baby? She is 16. Drar Reader Yes, I've seen it happen in some young prls not so fat. Often the per- ods are not regular early in ife and, if the girl isn't proper- informed, it can be quite a OPTICAL PRISCRIPTION CO. Dentist held 011 charge EDMONTON (CP) A 41- year old city dentist was re- manded to July 15 for election and plea today when he ap- peared in provincial magis- trts's court on charges arising from the death of a young city girl. Dr. Gerald Neil Waterhouse was charged with causing death by criminal negligence, of driv- ing nnder the influence of 'al- cohol or drugs and failing to provide a breath sample for analysis. He was released on cash bail. Police said Mary Louise Ytir- chuk, 14, became the city's 17th fatality of the year Tuesday when she died in hospital after being dragged 48 feet by a car which cut a 700-foot path through a shopping centre parking lot. The car struck four parkec cars, sideswiped a building, hit two utility poles, struck a bus stop sign and a bench before hitting the girl and then de- molished a cement traffic con trol box before coming to a stop on the centre median ol the street. Police estimated damage be twecn and shock for all concerned, parti- cularly the poor girt. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 67 up with my head and neck soak- ing wet with perspiration. The time is three or four in the morning. What would be the cause of this nuisance? Dear Reader Sweating is one of the mechanisms to low- er body temperature or to pre- vent accumulation of excess body heat. Throughout a 24- hour period, (he volume of sweat from a normal adult va- ries from one to three pints. The evaporation of the sweaty fluid from the skin works like an evaporation air conditioner. The first consideration is whether or not you are too hot at night. This could be a sim- ple matter of a hot bedroom or too m'any bed or night clothes. Aside from these normal rea- sons for sweating, some indivi- duals do have illnesses that cause night sweat. To deter- mine whether or not you have such a condition would require a complete medical examina- tion. It is worth checking, how- ever, if conservative measures such as controlling room tem- perature, night clothes and bed- ding do not alter the problem. Certain medicines sometimes lead to excessive sweating and tin's, too, would need to bo con- sidered. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN mi: Br The Chicago Tribsncl Neither vulnerable. West deals.

The initial match was close with the lead constantly changing hands and the issue was not decided until the 20th and final deal which we are presenting today. fill out partner's suit, jumped aggressively to three no trump. West opened the ten of clubs and North's queen won the first trick. [Observe that a heart lead would not have been any more effective, because the suit blocks and West has no side entry once the hearts are established.] With only five top tricks available, it was apparent to South that dummy's suit would have to provide the bulk of his requirements. A spade was led and when East followed with the four, South's queen won. He continued with the king and had the good fortune to find West with a doubleton jack. With the appearance of that card, North's spot, cards all became promoted to equal rank and the ace became the defenses' only stopper in the suit. East held off on the second spade, so dummy was en- tered with the king of clubs to lead the ten of spades. East put up the ace on which both South and West discarded hearts. The exit was with a fourth round of spades and declarer proceeded to cash Opens cell-art OTTAWA (CP) Cell-art Galleries, an establishment de- voted entirely to showing and handling works of art created in C a n a d a's federal prisons, opened here Tuesday.

North was In with the ace and the queen o( diamonds provided a reentry to the closed hand to cash the vital club tricks. Had West been dealt a guarded nee of diamonds, he could have locked South out of his hand by permitting dummy's king of diamonds to hold. In all, declarer took four spades, one heart, one dia- mond and four clubs. When the deal was replayed at the other table, the Gorcn Team held the North-South cards and they stopped at two no trump. The same 10 tricks were scored on the deal, but with one spade and East overcalled with two dia- monds. A word of explana- tion is required to explain South's double. In the methods used by the Aces' partnership, this call is termed a "negative is not intended for penalties. It is merely a means of showing distributed values on certain holdings where no convenient constructive bid may be avail- able. It appears that North might have considered passing to play for a penalty. Even if West should rescue his part- ner to two hearts, he can be limited to six tricks at that contract and a 300 point sting inflicted on the East-West partnership, North chose in- stead to rcbid two spades. South, in the hope that the king-queen of spades would the game bonus gained by the Aces proved to be enough to enable them to nose out their opponent's and emerge vic- torious in the tint match at the scrim.
