HtKALD YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, AUG. 1 Your birthday today: Fresh beginnings are in or- der this year in as many directions as your inleresls allow. Unrewarding enter- prises are to be left behind. Social habits are changing. Today's natives arc versa- tile, definite in their ideas of what they need to do in life, skilled in coping with their environment. ARIES (March 21-April Take advantage of an oppor- tunity, even a small one, increasing resistance to speculations. It's time to check property rights. TAUPUS 20-May Long hours bring results and side effects as well. Some- thing useful turns up. Bring home a token of your feel- ings for your loved ones. GEMINI (May 21 .Ivinf Combinations go well early. Later in the day there may be a chance to show how you can remain calm when influential people are slow to respond.

Personal projects need tech- nical advice, have potential. Commercial topics are diffi- cult, particularly if you must persuade several people. VIRGO (Aug. Sept. Family welfare thrives with any serious effort at self-im- provement. Tact and courtesy arc as imnortant as your tim- ing of petitions. MHIIA (Sept. 211 Oct. Wolf and man Ar.dy sends a complete 20- volrme set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Dona- lyn Welton, age 16, o[ Hobart, Indiana, for her question: Is civilization causing the ex- tinction ol the wolf? The wild wolf may have been doomed to extinction when his path crossed man's. He a threat to our caveman ancest- ors and their children Later, he menaced the flocks and homes of the first settled farm- ers. In those far off times, no doubt it was decided that tJie wolf must go. As civiliza- tion advanced, mankind be- came more expert at reducing his numbers. Somehow he has managed to hang on here and there, but he may not survive the encroachments o' our pres- ent human population explo- sion. A few thousand years ago. fierce pony-sized wolves left their bor.es to fossilize in the La Bra tar pits of California. A few centuries ago, various smaller wolf species roamed freely over most of North Am- erica. Modern civilization ar- rived with the pioneers who set about taming the continent to suit themselves. To raise their cattle, they claimed the prair- ies where the buffalo roamed and almost exterminated the last of them. They drove coy- otes, prairie dogs and dozens of other native species from their anoient ranges. The wild wolves were a ma- j jor target because they were a real threat to domestic sheep and cattle. Without a doubt, these hungry predators were fast and ferocious, strong and cunning. They would not be al- lowed to share the range with domesticated flocks and herds. Nobody knows how many wolves were killed by the early settlers. But in a generation or so they no longer threatened most of the settled territory. But the wily wolves were not totally exterminated. As man's civilization advanced. Itey re- treated. Their numbers are re- duced, but they still survive in many small secluded regions where people seldom visit. Most ol their strongholds are rugged territories which people are not likely to transform in- to farms or habitations. Other wild wolves survive unmolested in national parks and other wild life sanctuaries where all na- ture's creatures are protected by law. The large grey wolf still sur- vives in rugged regions among our western mountains. The white or pearly grey Arctic wolf survives on the northern tundra. The black wolf still sur- vives in remote parts of Florida and m Mexico. In our country, almost all the remaining wolves are in the north central regions. Civilization drove the wolves from most of Europe ages ago. But several species still live in the rugged regions of Scandan- avia. in remote forested moun- tains of France, Germany and Spain. Others still live in parts of China and Japan. India and the Middle East. Perhaps the wily wolf will survive the pres- ent threat of extinction, as he has done so often in the past.

UN condemns Dear Dr. Lamb 1 had part of my colon out four and one- hall years ago. I did not have a colostomy. Since then I 1'ave had bowel trouble. I can't eat raw fruits because of the acid.

I assume by bowel trouble you mean you're j VIOlHllOll having constipation, since you made a relerence to eating raw j n Iruits.

For breakfast, eat something that has real bulk to it and this usually means some Oatmeal 15 lorm good of cereal, choice. In- elude witli your breakfast, meal at least two glasses of liquid.

Do this every day whether or not you have a bow- el movement. For your other meals during the day be sure lo include food with plenty of bulk. This par- ticularly means vegetables and cereals. Avoid eating lots of Somalia and Sudan. The resolution barring trade with Rhodesia was first adopted by the Security Council in 1966 Kiasi, and strengthened later as a some means of pressuring the white- minority regime lo allow more political rights for the eastern African black major- ity.
