Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Fddqy, July 38, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY. JL'I.V 29 Your Birthday Today: It Isn't in your nature to take the easy way. There arc no simple 'choices or decisions available, but a multiplicity of subtle daily acts which over a period of time arc the equivalent of big decisions.

Dear Dr. Lamb Could you I it's a good idea for people in help me? Five years ago the Us0e K iodized salt to prevent goiters. I was expecting, my obslein. rf Ws. cian told me not to consume torVi j think you might choose salt or sugar because my body to see your doctor, and if he agrees with your not using salt, lie might choose to give you some medicine with some iodine in it that you could take reg- ularly. This is often done in the treatment of goiters that are caused by iodine deficiencies. He might also want to look into your thyroid status to see if it has anything to do with that extra 20 pounds of weight you've gained. Seafood often contains appreciable amounts of iodine and that's one dietary source. Many city water sup- plies contain iodine. Dear Dr. Lamb Do you be- lieve in hypnosis for losing weight? Dear Reader Yes. if it is combined with suggestions for a sensible, well-balanced diet. It would be very important that the hypnotic suggestion not be tied to some sort of crash or fad diet, which might be in- jurious to the health. There are a lot of good things that can be accomplished with hvpnosis- In this instance, if it works for an individual, it would work by re- inforcing the person's desire not to eat excessive calories.

Ask for 'Balanced Diet" booklet. retained fluid which resulted in too much of a weight gain. Since that time I have used a salt substitute and liquid sugar substitute. Nevertheless, I've gained 20 excess pounds of weight. Now I've read the label on both those products and both of them contain sodium. I thought this was the reason you couldn't use salt. What good does it do to use a substitute if it contains sodium too? H o w big a chance would I be taking if I gave up salt altogether? There have been several mem- bers of my family who have had goiters, and what I want to know is, is there any other way I can get iodine if I don't use salt? Dear Reader The 20 extra pounds you've gotten have prob- ably been from eating too many calories and not from using either salt or sugar sub- stitutes. You are right, how- ever, that it's the sodium in the salt that's associated with fluid retention. There's very little reason for having a salt sub- stitute which contains lots of sodium. There probably isn't enough sodium in the artificial sweetener that you use to make that much difference. Neither of these preparations would have iodine in them anyway, to the likelihood is that you're not getting any iodine from the gait substitute you are using. In any case, you have a good point. One of the major sources for iodine in most of the diet Is iodized salt, and GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN 1C IIH: Rr Thl Chlaie Trlbuni] Both vulnerable. South deals.

A mere jump to three ipades is not forcing and, holding eight winners. South Is warranted in insisting on game after North keeps the bidding open. Once there, declarer gave a very skillful account of himself. West opened the king ot hearts on which East fol- lowed with the deuce and declarer with the nine. A switch appeared lo he in or- der and West promptly shift- ed to the eight of diamonds. The three was played from dummy and East put up the jack, which won Die trick. The king o." diamonds was returned and North was in with the ncc. It appears that South must lose four one heart, two diamonds, and one club, unless the king of cluh.i falls under the ace. A single- ton' club honor appeared so icmolo lo declarer lhal he nought for 3 more likely pros- pect. Presently he uncov- ered a plan which depended on's holding Ihe cd king of clubs, ns well ,1.1 tbo queen diamond! which the previous plays had marked, in the latter's pos- session. South proceeded to cash out seven rounds of spades on which he discarded three clubs, and three hearts from the dummy. East followed to the lirst 'three rounds and then parted with the five and jack of hearts and the six cf clubs. The last spade placed him in desperate straits. He realized that if he surrendered the four of dia- monds, a diamond play by declarer would throw him in with the queen and force him to lead away from the king of clubs. In order lo avoid the end- play, East discarded the seven of clubs, producing the following positicn with three cards left: NORTH A Void V Void 0 10 A (11 WEST EAST A Void A Void V Void O Void 0 Void 0 CM J 10 5 K SOUTH A Void V Void f> 9 A A.I The only question left in Soulh'3 mind was whether East had two diamonds and one club left, or one dia. mond and two clubs. If it was the latter, then the win- ning play is to exit with a diamond and force East to lead away from his double- ton club. If, on the other Jiand, Flast is down to two diamonds and one club, de- clarer's only hope is to piny the ace ot clubs. After some thought, South decided to try for Ihc drop and he cashed his ncc of clubs. This decision was re- warded by the appearance of the king from Kast. North's queen of clubs took Ihc fulfilling trick and the defense was limited lo two diamonds' am' one hcarl on Ihc dcaj. Galaxies Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Karen Denise Roberts, age 12, ol Newport News, Virginia, for lier question: Do galaxies ever collide? Astronomers tell us that the galaxies can and do collide and there arc telescope photo- graphs to prove it. Out there in the vast reaches of space, pairs of enormous star sys- tems sometimes meet in what surely must be the greatest traffic accidents in the uni- verse. However, such an event is not necessarily disastrous. IE the stars in those galaxies have populated planets, it is not likely that the people would even notice the stupendous col- lision. Our Milky Way, of course, Is just one of countless galaxies strewn throughout the infinite universe. One of its nearest neighbors is the Great Nebula in Andromeda at a safe dis- tance of about 1H million light years. Each of these cosmic twins measures about light years from side to side anfl contains about 100 billion starry suns, plus stupendous clouds of dusty gases. This pair is not likely to col- lide. But if they did, most like- ly they would not create a cosmic catastrophe. Astron- omers suspect that few, if any, of their stars would be disturb- ed. The distances between them are so great that the two vast spiral nebulas would pass right through each other and their stars would be somewhat like spe'ks of dust floating through a sunbeam. Piclures of remote colliding galaxies do nut reveal the star collisions one might expect. However, not all the material in an average galaxy has con- densed to form separate stars. Much of it is dust and gases, strewn around in enormous clouds. As old stars die out, new ones will be created from this material. Galaxies collide at terrific speeds. Friction and heat could send their cosmic gases zooming away into outer space. Eventually the s t a r ry systems would separate and move apart minus their gas- eous clouds. As the existing stars subsided, there would be no material to create new ones. Astronomers base this acci- dent report on a lot of known facts about the universe. Most likely it happens this way, though nobody can be certain of the details. However, photo- graphs reveal no evidence that the widely separated stars col- lide. But powerful radio emis- sions come from the scene of the accident. This would be ex- pected if the gaseous clouds do indeed become embroiled in the collision. Celestial surveys reveal lhat the countless galaxies are not distributed evenly in r o u g h outer space. They tend to con- gregate in groups of two or three or several hundred. Like everything else in the universe, all of them are on the move. Hence it seems likely that traf- fic accidents are likely to oc- cur and a collision between two galaxies may be a fairly common cosmic event.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1972) Rocket-airplane contract awarded lo American Rockwell By VERN7 HAUGLANU WASHINGTON (AP) North American Rockwell Corp. has captured the 52.6-billion con- tract to build the space shuttle orbiter vehicle that will jet into orbit like a rocket and land on earth like an airplane. North American's space divi- sion, at Downey, Calif., won over three rival bidders Wednesday to get the National Aeronautics and Space Adminis- tration contract to build five ve- hicles over a six-year period. The delta-winger craft that will carry men and materiel be- tween earth and orbiting satel- lites are expected to be a bcon lo the aerospace industry in California. Estimates range up to more jobs during the next 10 years. Under (he initial payment of million in two years, North American will build Ihe first two to be used lor static testing and the other for horizontal test flights starting in 1D7G. Three operational vehicles are to he built for manned orbital missions, with test flights begin- ning in 197H. HAVE TARGET The IZO-tool-long craft with n 79-foot wing span arc lo lie in full opcrnlion by 1O. They arc lo be used over and over again lo carry men, satellites and equipment into earth orbit and lo bring personnel and materi- als backs lo earth. The cargo compartment of the arbiter will be able lo carry up In K.nta pounds mlo an orbit I IS miles above the cnrlh. The comparlmcnt may be used on some missions to carry as many as a scicnlisls and techni- cians.
