Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IHt IHHBRIDGI HERALD Monday, 12, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, JUNK 13 Your Birthday Today: Suc- cessful adjustment comes naturally this year. Your tal- ents for persuasion, selling and related skills improve. The temptation Is toward material advantage without enough concern for adequate health care. Today's natives include successful inventors, shrewd guess experts, and a few who merely liope that casual estimates are good enough. ARIES (March 21-April Things go so well you may for- find you've hurt someone. Carelessness never pays, and Is very likely hazardous now. TAUHUS (April 20-May That second thought saves the day; wait for it. It is difficult to listen while putting forth any dramatic expression of your own. GEMINI (May 21 June Close associates bring up o simple idea worthy of checking out. Continued skepticism on attractive financial offers is recommended. CANCER (June 21 July Your opinion Is a catalyst, may set off turbulence, you weren't asked what you thought at the outset. LEO (July 23 Aug. Clearing away neglected odds and ends turns up an idea for more creative activity. There's easy money for those who know how to see the opening. V1HGO (Aug. 23 In noticing what seems to be officious behavior, remember that you are trying to get some- thing done, you are demanding. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Reflecting on what you've ac- complished lately is half your fortune; thinking clearly of what you are about is the rest of it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. The more impatient you are, the less likely to achieve inv mediate success. Travel, any- tiling mechanical needs special j care and safely measures. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. Differences in money and j Are flies needed? Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Kalh- ryn Hanley, age 9, of San Francisco, California, for her question: Are flics needed In (lie balance of nature? Naturally we detest the pesky flies that ruin our summer days and evenings outdoors. They in- fest our trash cans and we have to screen doors and windows to keep them out of our homes. But suppose we wiped out all the zillions of flics in the whole world. The frogs who eat fly meat would starve, so would many toads, lizards and other small creatures. We also would lose the pretty kinglets and many songbirds that feed on flies. And this is only part of the sad story. Balancing is a tricky thing, even in small items, It !s hard to balance on one foot and harder to balance two weights on a see-saw. But the balance of nature is the trickiest thing in the whole world, ft is so com- plicated that nobody really un- derstands how the billions ol things all fit together. It seems that large and small living things need each other to keep going. Certainly the busy flies are needed in this complicated balance of nature. Nothing much is upset when we swat one pesky fly. Bu there are hundreds of differen flies and zillions of each type Altogether they weigh millions of tons. This is not counting the fly eggs and young fly mag gots. Most flies never live long enough to buzz around i the air. They become food ti feed countless animals. As the young fly maggots grow, the; help to dccff the garbage, so that tiny mites and bacteri materials show up more drama- Ucally than they deserve, and you have to find some good reasons.

Co-operation now depends almost completely on how clearly you explain what you want. Avoid any detailed com- ment on why you ask.

Many nakcs, raccoons and birds vould starve because they feed m small animals that eat flies. Some fish would go hungry and so would many larger animals hat feed on fish. In fact, if here were no flies in the world, most of the wild animals would suffer E food shortage and many would starve to death. And this is not the worst of t. Those grubby maggots that breed in our trash are needed o renew the soil with chemical jlant foods. We need the green )lant world to provide our fresh )reathable oxygen. We also need its vegetables, fruits and salads. The plant world also ecds tlie farm animals that give us meat and dairy prod- ucts. Every year, zillions of Flies are used and reused, cyc- led and recycled throughout the world. They are needed to keep the balance of nature going. True the pesky critters even annoy the cows. But a cow just swishes her tail to brush them away. She does not try to wipj all of them out. If she did, the soil might be poorer and the grasses thinner. Bossy the cow would be hungry and a hungry cow has less milk and ice cream to give us. So, let's just swat the few flies that an- noy us and leave the rest of them to perform their duties in the complicated, world-wide balance of nature.

Dairy man backs lowfat milk Dear Dr. Lamb I read I ers such as yourself is certain- your column stressing the im- jortance of 1 per cent low-fat milk to provide calcium the body needs and that we do not need the animal fat in our present-day diets. I am the vice- president of a dairy company. Having had open heart surgery at the Mayo Clinic a year and a half ago to alleviate blocked arteries to the heart caused by eating foods high in cholesterol and fat, I have attempted to in- terest all our management per- sonnel and sales people in the importance of 1 per cent low- fab milk in the diet. As a re- sult, we are in the midst of a big promotion of low-fat milk. 1 want to thank you for your support for low-fat dairy prod- ucts. Dear Reader I am putting your nice letter in the column because it is a fine example of positive leadership. As vice- president of a large dairy com- pany in Minnesota, you are certainly representative of the forward thinking policy of much of the modern dairy in- dustry. The provision of low- fat products, such as fortified skim milk and the 1 per cent low-fat milk, plus the uncream- ed cottage cheese, has provid- ed the American public with an opportunity to have essential nutritious food values obtained from milk without the prob- lems associated with saturated tat.

The race irill operate under 1327 air race rules and is open lo pilots flying aircraft with cruising speeds of 50 lo 100 miles an hour. The race will have two start and the f i n i s h a n d pilols must avoid night flying, radios, paved airports and control zones.

"The committee will be re- ;ponsible for making informa- tion available and developing plans and proposals to be con- sidered by the industry as a the minister said. Mr. Lang said the new hopper cars were "additional" cars to be used in grain trans- port, and not simply additions to the railways' general fleet. While financial details have not been concluded between tlie RovemmenLs and the railroads, Mr. Lang said Ottawa has no inlenlion of providing the com- panies with an extra profit from Ihe new cars. He said that before financial agreements can reached, the costs of moving tlie extra wheat will have to be calcul- ated. Eventually, the cars probably be sold to the com- panies, because "the govern- ment does not want lo be in the car ownership Mr. Lang said.
