Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 1HE U1HBRIDGE HERAID Friday, Juns 16, W7J YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, JUNE IT Your birthday today: Your competence in your field im- proves with continued effort. You have both the need and chance to know more clearly what you want and can do; so find out! Today's natives usually possess creative tal- ents. 'Past glories, history, their ancestry interest them.

In the 1600s, William Harvey demonstrated how the heart works, beat by pulsing beat. But what makes it beat re- mained a mystery while gen- erations of human hearts con- tinued to follow their secret in- structions. In the 1900s, a sliver of chicken heart was kept beat- ing in a solution for 3-1 years. However, modern medical scientists cannot explain fully what makes each beat begin- though they are getting close to the secret. The human heart normally beats about 70 to 75 times minute. After each pulsing beat, it pauses to rest abpur 0.8 seconds. Then something happens to start the next bea through its rhythmical opera tion. This something is wha makes the heart beat, for it consider to be soft or firm s up to you. LEO (July 23 Aug. 22: Your strength and lunds are dedi- cated to somebody or some- lung.

Ryon THERE'S NOTHWS I MOKE-THAN HAPLESS INNOCENT FLEECBP OF HIS SUSTENANCE PY THAT EVIU ANP ABOMINABLE CORRUPTION CALLEP., sets each pulse in motion and controls its pace and rhythm. It Is a small wad of tissue, located on the right side of the heart. We may call it the pacemaker, through medical scientists call it the S A node, short for the suioatrial node. When time comes to spark the next beat, the pacemaker sends out electrical signals. In a fraction of a second, these waves are conducted by two sets of nerve fibers that spread around the heart. This causes the heart muscle to contract as a single unit, starting the squeeze-relax operation com pieted with each beat. The nerve fibers that conduct the starting signal can be des cribed in great detail. We also know the chemical electrica method used to transmit the signal. But the rest is somewhat like in old song from an old war. This weary soldier wants to silence the bugler who wakes lim before dawn. Then he de- cides it might be wiser to find and stop the fellow who wakes the bugler. Translated into mat- ters of the heart, we can prove that each beat is started by the pacemaker. But nobody can identify what starts the pace- maker that starts the beat. Ap- parently this small node is made of tissue with special chemical electrical properties that make it perform its du- ties. This does not mean that the pacemaker's pace cannot be controlled. It is regulated con- tinuously. During periods of in- tense activity, it speeds up the heart beat to supply extra oxy- gen to the muscles. It slows down during periods of tion, when less exygen is need- ed. Certain drugs and bio- chemicals also increase or de- crease the pacemaker's pace. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D Nosebleeds common in young people Naturally would like medical scientists to explain what starts the pacemaker. To this end, researchers carry on num- erous experiments with mam- mal hearts, similar to human learts. The tissues can be kept alive and beating in suitable solutions, sectioned with or without the pacemaker node. Some experts suspect that the miraculous operation is con- trolled by mysterious electri- cal activities. But nobody has been able to prove it.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1972) Dear Dr. Lamb What can you tell me about nosebleeding? My 7-year-old has them quite often. Now I am about to climb the walls. I have had her to several specialists and they all seem to say the same thing: she will outgrow it, don't let her pick her nose and buy her a cool air humidifier be- cause her nose is too dry. One doctor cauterized her nose twice, but says she is too young to do this too often. They all told me that when her nose bleeds, to either pack it with cotton or apply pressure of something else, but they don't undcrstabd the way I feel see- ing her nose starting to bleed and just when I really start to panic over all the blood she is losing, it will stop. What really can he done, and what can I give her to build up iier system from losing all the blood? Dear Reader The doctors you have seen have given you very good, sound advice, which is usually what is recommend ed for tl'iis problem. Most bleeding from the nose occurs in the soft part. Either putting a pack in the nose o pressing the soft tip against thi head part and pinching the nosi tip often helps stop bleeding Cold water also helps. In spm cases if there is a superficia blood vessel near the end the nose, it can be cauterizec and this will control futur bleeding. It is usually true that man YOU TELtTHAT PEPRAVEP CARP- SHARP ACE THAT I'M SERIOUSI-Y CONSlPERING CRACKING POWN ON HIS SORPIP RACKET! f S THE JUPGE PFTTER WIN TONIGHT BlONDlE-By Chic Young GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOIXEN tc im: CNlewt North -South vulnerable. West deals. NORTH V AJ 0 AKQ WEST EAST 4 K 10 3 id 2 (387432 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Jack of 0 Despite West's best' efforts to obscure the issue, South found a way to expose his opponent's "red herring" and still give himself the best chance to land his six spade contract. When South's Blackwood calls revealed that the part- nership had all four aces but only two kings, he settled for a small slam. Had North put down a third heart or a black king, Instead of the king of diamonds, South could have virtually claimed his contract after the open- ing lead was made. West opened the jack of diamonds and dummy's queen won the first trick. Declarer observed that two club discards were forthcom- ing on North's diamonds, so that the fate of the contract hinged on one of two finesses and spades. Prudence dictated testing trumps first, so a small spade was led at trick two and when East followed with the deuce, South played the queen. West followed smooth- ly with the three. While this play would r.ot have worked out well if East held the jack, West had carefully re- viewed the action in his mind and it seemed extreme- ly remote that South would have looked for a grand slam with only a five card spade holding headed by the ace-queen. When the first trump fi- nesse succeeded, declarer contemplated crossing over to the ace of hearts to repeat Ihe spade play. H East held the king, then it must suc- cumb to another finesse and South can afford to lose club trick. Declarer observed that the ace of hearts was the only remaining entry to dummy and, if West had engaged in skulduggery in his spade play. South might never have an opportunity to try the club finesse. Presently, the latter uncovered a meth- od to cope with all possibil- ities. The king of hearts was led and overtaken by the ace. The king of diamonds wafi played and declarer discard- ed his queen of hearts, there- by converting North's jack into the master card in hearts. Now a spade was led and tho East showed out, South retained control of the hand. He merely played the ace and another spade, put- ting West in with the king. Whether the latter exited with a heart or a diamond, dummy was in again and af- ter two small clubs were dis- carded on the jack of hearts and the ace of diamonds, South led the queen of clubs for a finesse in that suit. When East turned up with the king, declarer was safely home. As the caros were distnlj- uted, South could have tried the club finesse when he was in dummy for the second time with the ace of hearts. The objection to this play is that if West turns up with the king of clubs, he may give his partner a rulf in that suit if East hoids a sin- sjleton. osebleeds will stop on theii wu. If the bleeding continues course, the child or even an Ider person, must be taken t doctor for treatment, ometimes a more effecliv ose pack. Although it always looks like lot of Wood, sometimes the mount of blood really isn't ery great in terms of the nmn- of tablespoons of blood ost. A little blood spreads out ver a large area. Even so, if person has repeated frequent osebleeds, they may well lose 00 much iron, just the same as a woman in her child-bearing 'ears may lose too much iron. This would manifest itself by an anemia and can be checked >y a simple blood lest. If this should be true, the amount ron in the diet would need to >e increased and this can usual- y be accomplished through a ;ood normal diet with perhaps 1 little more concentration on food items that contain iron. Otherwise, the body is perfect- ly capable of generating enough blood to take care of most or- dinary nosebleeds. Rarely, nosebleeds are asso- ciated with important medical problems, but usually the nose- bleeds in children are not. They are more of a nuisance than a danger. Of course you are upset when it occurs. Any good mother would be, but there really isn't a great deal more to be done than has already been recom- mended to you. BEETLE BAILEY-By Mor) Walker Oddities in the Neivs YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) Yakima County sheriff's depu- ties have hit the trail in search of 24 million bees and 800 hives which disappeared during the weekend from the bee ranch run by Jim and Jess Bunch. The hives are worth about Each of the 800 hives contained about bees and their value is one to be calculated only after the honey market is tested. This is the second time the Bunch apiary has been hit. Four years ago hundreds of hives were stolen from a Bunch apiary in California. cause Stormy Weathers Is moving in.

MONTREAL (CP) Stag- gering sheep in a Laurent! an foothills barnyard was the final tipoff that led police Tuesday to the discovery of what police called one of the largest illicit-alcohol produc- tion operations ever discov- ered in Canada. Detectives, knowing there was a large still somewhere in the area, about 35 miles north of Montreal, saw sev- eral sheep staggering around near an isolated barn. Combined forces of RCMP and provincial police raided the barn and uncovered the still, worth an estimated and seized worth of illegal alcohol which had been loaded on a trans- port truck. Three men, two in tbeir 203 and the third in his 50s were taken into custody. "There was something fishy about those sheep, they acted one investigator said later. "They had probably been eating some of the dis- carded mash mixture." The giant still produced up- wards of 300 gallons of ethy alcohol a day and police esti mated it needed gallons of mash a day to operate. KNOXV1LLE, Tenn.

An officer who responded found the door locked anc called for reinforcements and an ambulance. Thirty officers surroundec the store. One called over a public address system for anyone inside to give himself up. Nothing happened. Over the loudspeaker the of- ficer told the prone figure to move his right hand if he was injured. The man's right hand wiggled feebly. Officers then hurled a news- paper rack through the win- dow. Once inside, one whiff situation: A clerk apparently had drunk his own wares and was out cold.
