Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Monday, July 16, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, JULY 17 Your birthday today: Ac- tion comes more readily than planning this year, may bring unanticipated side ef- fects. Material well being Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Mari- lyn Fairburn, age 11, of Spo- kane, Wash., for her ques- tion: What is IMachu Picchu? This is a glamorous tale of the sun-god Incas of Peru. Their sacred capital city was Cuzco, and Machu Picchu was a lofty fortress built to guard it. Spanish conquistadores wip- ed out the ruling Incas and 'their vast empire fell apart. Their splendid cities, roads and fortresses were plundered and demolished. Machu Picchu is one of the few Inca settlements that escaped. It was built in the 15th Cen- tury, a city-fortress perched on an impossible ledge, high in the lofty Peruvian Andes. Mount Machu Picchu provided an ideal site for a lookout stronghold. It has a misty peak and three steep sides that plunge 2000 feet down jungled cliffs. On the jungle floor, the Urubamba River swirls a cur- rent of wild rapids around the base of the mountain. On the fourth side of the site, steep cliffs lead up to the mountain's misty summit. Some 50 miles to the south- east stood the splendid city of Cuzco, capital of the thriving Inca Empire which stretched the full length of. South Ameri- ca. Over 500 years ago, Machu Picchu was built and fortified to protect the sacred Inca cap- ital from plundering barbaric tribes. For more than a cen- tury it fulfilled its purpose. In 1533, the Spanish conquer- ors found the city of Cuzco, de- molished its temples and locat- ed its golden treasures. But they did not find Machu Picchu. As the Inca Empire crumbled, its warriors departed and the jungle growth covered the fine stone city. A few people stayed to farm the terraced fields on the slope. At the turn of this century, an American archeolog i s t, Hiram Bingham, became fas- cinated by the ruins of the an- cient Inca civilization. He searched through diaries, and other reports written during the time of Cortez. He listened to half-forgotten tales told by Indians who still liyed in the land of the Incas and con- c'uded that some of the old cities never bad been found. In 1911, Bingham led a party to explore Cuzco. Instead, he found the well-preserved ruins of Machu-Picchu. The trail led down the steep gorge of the Urubamba River, through the jungles of the eastern slopes of the mountain, 8000 feet up toward its misty peak. On the slope he found terrac- ed fields supported by sturdy stone walls. The Incas, he knew built terraces to grow food for their cities. Above was the overgrown fortress. Bing- ham returned to the site three times with archeologists. The encroaching jungle was remov- ed with expert care, and stone by stone the forgotten city was revealed. In 1948 a highway was opened, and nowadays vi- sitors can drive to the old fort city of Machu Picchu. The fortress site covers an area of 400 feet by 325 feet. Its 200 stone buildings were con- structed by master masons. They include houses and tem- ples, shrines and sturdy stair- cases. It is estimated that in its heyday the fort was home to perhaps a thousand people. High on the mountain peak is a giant sundial, where the Inca priests implored the sun to re- turn from Ms winter solstice.

LAWRENCE LAMB, M. D. Four-year-old won't eat meat Dear Dr. Lamb An article Fortunately both milk and eggs are complete proteins. They contain all the essential amino adds that you might need for growth. As long as he's getting plenty of milk and some eggs and you are adding vitamins which he might be missing by not eating a better variety of foods, I imagine he's all right I understand your distress but he's getting everything the body requires for normal growth and development Hopefully when be gets a little older you'll be able to use more effective measures to in- duce bun to develop an interest in a greater variety of foods. one which appeared in your column several weeks ago prompted me to write this letter. It was about the family who had no in the diet. I believe they were vegetarians. Well, my son is 4 years old and has never liked meat as a baby or a tod- dler. I used to mix it up in the desserts with the baby food, but after he quit eatinj that I could not get him to ea any meat. He would gag ant choke on it. Occasionally he ate bacon. Now be win not eat that either. The reason I am writing is that I want your opinion on his diet. My pediatrician says he will outgrow this, but I am still concerned. I might adc that I have tried not giving him the foods he likes but he won't eat at all if I dont. These are the foods be eats. His diet is usually: breakfast- banana, Hawaiian punch, cookie or sugar toast, cereal such as Sugar Pops, etc., and milk; lunch peanut butter and crackers and milk; supper I make him drink a milkshake which consists of a half package of instant break- fast drink and a raw egg beat- en with the mixture. Then he may have potato chips or piece of cake for dessert. The above is. a normal day of food for him. He will eat french fries, biscuits, or any- thing sweet. Yes, he likes can- ned peaches. He drinks plenty of milk and juice but other- wise this is an he will eat He seems healthy, though. Should I worry or just let him go on like we are? I do worry but he does take vita- mins- and be insists "stinks" and win not even try other food. Any peace of mind you can give me win be great- ly appreciated.
