Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THI IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 70, 1971 Your horoscope By Jean e Dixon WEDNESDAY, JULY 21 Your birthday today: Plunges you into a scries of personal changes for which you have no special prepara- tion. Natural intuitive guid- ance serves far better than intellectual detailed planning if you have faith to let it. To- day's natives live a poignant interior life of strong feelings on matters carrying no emo- tional meaning for most peo- ple. ARIES (March 21 Apil An early start gives you mo- mentum for a vigorous day. While attending the details re- quired of you, put in a lick two on the matters that interest you. TAURUS (Apr! 20 May Being realistic and cautious is required now. New business, home changes are indicated. Be sure what you're doing isn't just for. the sake of change. GEMINI (May 21 June Nothing comes alone or from one direction. It pays to be aware and considerate of oth- ers' complicated needs. CANCER (June 21 July Andy sends a complete 20- volunie set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Stephen Hart- mann, age 11, of Glenolden, Pennsylvania, for his ques- tion: Di> they see our stars at the equator? The star-studded reaches of space surround our planet on every side. Our view of the celestial population depends upon where are on the curved survace of the globe. Everywhere we stand, the changing celestial scenery is regulated by lire earth's daily rotation and its yearly orbit around the sun. The tilt of its axis governs the alternating seasonal changes in the north- ern and southern hemispheres. The axis also governs the unique view of the stars seen above the equator. The North and South Poles face opposite points in the star- ry heavens. In Philadelphia, Polaris, the North Star, is al- ways 40 degrees above the hori- zon, but the people there never see me Southern Cross that shines above the Southern Hem- isphere. At the North Pole, Polaris is directly overhead. Farther south, it appears lower in the sky, matching the earth's degrees of latitude. Its distance Dairy surplus fades EDMONTON (CP1 The ability of Canada's present dairy policy to adjust to fu- ture demands was questioned at a closed conference of the 10 provincial agriculture min- isters here. A paper on the dairy indus- try, presented by the province of Quebec, said that two years ago there was a surplus of many dairy products. There was a possibility now that some products would have to be imported before the end of the year. FUTURE DEMANDS The ministers agreed that while procedures for market sharing are being worked out, discussions with the federal government are necessary to enable Canadian farmer's to fill future demands for dairy products. A more aggressive Canadian dairy commission policy to de- velop new dairy products and export markets also is neces- sary if the dairy industry is to grow, said a statement releas- ed after Monday's session. CREDIT POLICIES More flexible federal credit policies to meet farm needs in different provinces also were suggested, said the statement. The ministers continue their discixsions today and will meet with federal Agriculture Minis- ter H. A. Olson Wednesday. They will spend the rest of the week touring agricultural points of interest in Alberta. above the horizon shows that Philadelphia is close to Latitude 40 degrees north of the equator. Farther south, along Latitude 30 degrees near Jacksonville, Florida, Polaris is 30 degrees above le horizon. Still farther south, at the equator, Polaris is about level with the northern horizon. The Equator is Latitude 0 de- grees, halfway between the two poles. It is the special circle that divides the two hemis- pheres, midway between their opposite views of the heavens. Thus, people at the equator have a unique view of the com- plete celestial sphere. The op- posite poles lie fixed on the northern and southern horizons. Every calendar day, all the stars in our sky pass overhead or to the side and so do the southern hemisphere stars, which we never see above south- ern latitudes. The rotating earth orbits the sun and changes the nightly con- stellations with the seasons, even at the Equator. The stars that appear on Christmas night pass overhead on Christmas Day. All the stars seen above the two hemisphere pass over the equator every calendar day, but half of them are hidden by dazzling daylight. In our latitudes, most of the stars trace sloping paths over the sky and the length of the nights varies with the seasons. At the Equator, all the stars rise and set more or less at right angles to the horizon and trace perfect half circles over the Every calendar day, their half circles trace the equator's 12 hour period of night. This neat pattern is slightly modified by the 23Vi degree tilt of the earth's axis and the changing seasons. On the two equinox days, the stars rise and set at perfect right angles to the horizon and the noon sun is exactly overhead. On the op- posite solstice days, their paths vary degrees. In our htitudes, the setting sun slopes down and its slant- ing rays shed a period of twi- light. At the equator the daily sun traces a 12-hour half-circle over the sky. It sinks straight down and drops suddenly, with no twilight pause. Night arrives in a rush, with all the stars in our sky plus all Uiose appear- ing above the southern hemis- phere.

Box 765, Huntington Beacli, California (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1871) Retired British press baron dies LONDON 'Renter) Lord Astor, the British press baron who ruled The Times for more than 40 years, died Monday in Cannes, France- He was 85. A spokesman for The Times said Lord Aslor died in hospi- tal, where he hud been taken from his home at nearby Pego- mas. Cause of death was not im- mediately known. Born in 1885, the son of Ihc first Viscount Astor, As- tor acquired a controlling in- terest in The Times in 1922, fol- lowing the death of another great press baron, Lord North- cliffe. He remained chief proprietor of the newspaper until his re- tirement in 1966. Amputees not any better off EDMONTON (CP) Ampu- tees may not be any better off today than they were a few years ago, says Dr. Augusto Sarmiento, an orthopedist at the University of Miami. The techniques used in sur- gical amputations are not much different from 15 to 20 years ago, he told the Cana- dian Association of Prosthe- tists and Orthotists annual con- ference. Progress in the field of limb and brace fabricating and fit- ting also has been minimal in the last five years, he said. He also said not every ampu- tee should be fitted with nn artifici.il limb. The problem was one of cither too much re- habilitation or too little. Dr. A. H, McKcnzic, an or- thopedic surgeon at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmon- ton, said prosthctists have pro- gressed from the old-time limb-ami brace maker who "just picked up the trade" in n poorly equipped shop to a "new breed of sophisticated para-medical practitioner." Sketch in only the broad out- lines on any scheme that has yet to come to actual use. De- tails will be different later, any- way. Meanwhile, accurately complete little deals made, LEO (July 23 Aug. Shot cuts often turn out to be short circuits, and today is quick on this sort of development. The main thing is that everybody concerned really knows enough to be able to agree. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept Coordinating conflicting activity of others pushes your plans off-stage. Look after your own best interests, even tho it causes momentary inconvenience. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. What you hear today can prof- itably be used tomorrow. It is too early to debate or take sides on clashing ideas. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Speak out firmly for what you want and believe in. Take note of those expressing agreement, but keep track of what the re- sistance or differences of opin- ion might be, and why. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. It's easy enough to be no- ticed today, but not so simple to be prominent for a construc- tive reason. Do a sufficient amount to bring the entire per- spective along with it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Your affairs seem in apple- pie order, but those persons you serve or care about need seri- ous thought. Make only a few changes to achieve temporary adjustment rather than a sweep- ing reorganization. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Get to the point; skip theoreti- cal considerations of how things come to be in then- present con- dition. PISCES (Feb. 19 March Everything creeps a bit too slowly. With patience, you can work some things out; with imagination, other things can be brightened into comic relief or transferred into somebody else's hands. (1971: By The Chicago Tribune) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Fainting common even among men Dear Dr. Lamb I am 41 years old, five feet nine and weigh 155. I passed my physi- cal exam for military service 20 years ago. Throughout my life, there have been times I have fainted (three times) or felt faint. It has occurred when I do- nated blood and after standing longer than five minutes in church. I usually can battle this, but there have been times when it was hard to hear the pastor after I sat down. I am somewhat nervous, eas- ily emotionally disturbed and a poor sleeper. I do not smoke or drink any alcoholic beverages and rarely have more than two cups of coffee a day. I operate a medium-sized dairy farm, so I get an adequate amount of physical activity. Is my prob- lem quite common and what is the usual cause? Dear Reader Fainting is a symptom and can mean many things. It is quite common in perfectly healthy people. True, it occurs more often in young people, before the age of 20, than in older people without di- sease. I once set up a study to find out how common fainting was in the Air Force flying popula- tion. As a generalization, about 40 per cent of these healthy men remembered losing cons- ciousness at one time or another and about half of these had sim- ple faints from "standing in church." visiting the hospital, parade formation, shots, blood drawing and the like. I do not regard three faints or near- faults in a life-time as really unusual in an otherwise healthy person. Fainting is caused by inade- quate circulation to the brain. This can occur because too much of the blood collects in the legs while standing still. Moving the legs, to contract the muscles, helps prevent this. The heart may beat too slow- ly or can even stop temporarily, through reflex actions, even in healthy people. When a person falls to the ground with this kind of a faint, the heart usually starts again automatically. The heart can also beat too slowly because of disease, usually in much older persons, and cause repeated fainting episodes' Usu- ally these individuals have heart rates below 40 a minute and are sometimes treated with an implanted electrical pace- maker. Nervous individuals some- limes beathe too rapidly and too deeply This blows off too much car- bon dioxide and affects the body chemistry, which in turn affects the circulation and flow of blood to the brain. Such people should NOT hold their breath but can get benefit from slow and shal- low breathing. Breath holding can trigger undesirable reflexes that can cause fainting. There are a lot of other rea- sons for fainting but, hi the vast majority of people who faint and have no other com- plaints, it is not serious. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CRAfcLES H.

Australia finished third and China [who cap- tured the runnerup position the last two years) was fourth. The Dallas Aces, one ot the two teams representing the United States of America, and the French survived the qualifying rounds and met in the 128-deal finals. Three substantial swings gained in the first quarter of the match, got the Americans off to a lead they never relin- quished. One of the hands that produced this advantage 3s presented today. The bidding was the same at both tables and the open- ing lead by West against the I final contract of three lift I trump was the seven of clubs. Tie French, declarer put up (he queen from dummy. whicn won the trick. South) could count seven top tricks. one club, one diamond and Jive hearts. He decided to work on the spades and he led the four from the dummy at trick two. East alertly put up the ace and returned the ten of clubs. South covered with the king and West proceeded feu. cash, out four clubs to send the declarer down to i 300 point setback oo the deal. At the other table, Bob Goldman was the declarer when the Americans held tho North-South cards. He ob- served that two additional '.ricks could be obtained in the diamond suit provided j that East held the king. Since j the location of the spade ace would not matter if the diamond finesse succeeded, declarer chose to rely on the red suit to bring his trie's total up to nine. A small diamond was led from dummy. East followed with the nine and declarer put in the jack. When this card held, he crossed over to the aee of hearts to play another diamond. East pro- duced the king and Goldman covered with the ace. He proceeded to cash the queen of diamonds followed by four hearts. With nine tricks in, he was home free. East won the spade shift and a club return gave the defense the balance. The six hundred point profit scored by the United States for making three no trump added to the 100 point set scored by their East-West teammates at the other table netted a 700 point swing.
