Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saturday, lu'.f 10, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Your horoscope By Jeans Dixon SUNDAY, JULY 11 Your liirtlHlay today: A long season of spiritual har- vest and rebirth opens. Power and initiative to leave behind, old habits come into your hands. Material security be- comes less of an issue. To- day's natives have broad op- portunity to guide and influ- ence local history, the wel- fare of their communities. Most possess a latent gift for responsibility, leadership. AIUES (March 21 April Oa this Sunday away from reg- ular work, reflect on what your career really is. For some, it's a good day to organize a search for a better job. TAURUS (April 20 May Freakish strokes of good, bad, and indifferent luck character- ize the day. It is better to be little Ships in bottles Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Duane Shel- ton, age 15, of Des Moines, Iowa for her question: How do they get those ships into bottles? These impossible creations hold us spellbound. As a rule, the model ship is large enough to occupy most of the available space into the bottle. True, it looks beautiful there, under is curved glass walls. However, before we have time to lose ourselves in admiration, we no- tice that the only opening to the bottle is a narrow neck. Ob- viously that handsome model ship did not get inside under full sail. Its lofty rigging is much too tall to squeeze through the bottleneck or so it seems. These bewildering objects are built by hobbyists who like to enchant the public and pos- sibly baffle us a bit. They were made first by crewmen of old sailing ships. These sailors lov- ed and trusted their handsome ships with deep devotion. On long voyages there was time to spare and their talented hands itched to be busy. It was natural to carve and whittle models of their beloved ships. However, the rigging was done in fine detail and tended to be rather fragile. When the ship was tossed by stormy gales, the delicate work of art most likely got smashed to frag ments. Perhaps this is why the sea- going makers of ship models invented a way to protect their precious creations. In any case they took to fitting their model ships in bottles and sealing the bottles with corks. A c o r k e d bottle might roil around durin_ a storm, but only a fierce bash would shatter it. To create such a masterpiece a sailor carved the hull of his model, making sure that it was no wider than the mouth of the chosen bottle. He added the tall rigging, the masts and spars the furled sails and used fine threads to copy the ropes. The tallest mast was no longer than the width inside the botle's bulge. The model was comple- ed, painted and checked out side the bottle. Now for the impossible part of the project. A cunning sys tern of string was threaded through the tall rigging. Then the masts and spars and rig ging were pressed fairly flat down on the deck. Next, wit very tender care, the compress ed model was pushed throug the opening and down the hot tie neck. When the whole thinj was inside, it was maneuvere< into position. Then the cunnin: string was pulled. Gently Ui tall masts stood upright, with a their delicate rigging in place Those clever skills were hand ed down through the years. Now adays, hobbyists have bette adhesives and other moder materials to make their wor easier. But like the sailors c yore, they still require wei practiced fingers and oceans of patience. And to get a model ship into a bottle, they still use the old technique to press down the rigging and squeeze the masterpiece through the nar- row bottlneck. No doubt the skills survived ecause the building of model essels was, and still is, more lan a mere hobby. In olden ays, designers made small mo- els and shipyards copied them o build full scale, ocean-go- ing sailing ships. We live in an ge of computers, blueprints nd drawing boards. But the uilders usually study a small model of the design, both, be ore and during construction 'he creation of these mode hips, spacecraft and other mo- ern vessels is still far more han a hobby.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Off-track betting not [egal hitch OTTAWA (CP) Off-track betting could be made legal even if the majority ol the prov- inces do not request it, a spokesman for federal Justice Minister John Turner said today. The spokesman said there is no legal necessity or require- ment of custom to obtain the approval of a majority of prov- inces before making off-track betting legal. But it is customary to consult all provincial attorneys-general because the federal laws ban- ning off-track betting are en- forced by the provinces, he said. The federal government had asked provincial governments for their views on the issue and was receiving a mixed re- sponse. One federal option would be to make off-track betting legal at the option of each province, as lotteries now are. Thus one province could per- mit such betting while others could keep it illegal.
