12 THE lETBBRIDGE HBRAID Juris 21, 1972 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY, JUNE 22 Your Birthday Today: The coming year is as smooth as you will let il n6r- mal growth, healthy adjust- ment, deeper and less visible emotional intensity. Your ten- dency is more toward doing Recycling Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dent Encyclopedia to Jerri Sumner, age 7, of Eastpoint, Georgia, for her question: What do they mean by re- cycling? When you pedal a bike, the wheels cycle around. We call it a bicycle because it has. to go cycling. Not all cycles are wheels. But they all move around and come back to where they started. A bus makes a cycle around town. It recycles around when it makes the same trip again and again. Nowadays we talk about recycling trash. We collect em- pty bottles and send them back to be remodeled and made into more batches of bottles. Everybody wants to clean lip pollution, so that our air and water will be fresh and clean again. We can do it if every- body lends a helping hand. Many big changes must be made to purify all the air and water. This will take lime and a lot of hard, heavy work. And it will cost a lot of money. But there is another kind of pollu- tion that wastes money and other useful tilings. What's more, we can start fighting It today. Nobody is too young to lend a helping hand. Maybe you have heard of litter pollu- tion. You see this mess in our parks and beside pur roads. It is those trashy bits of paper, those empty cans and bottles that careless people just chuck away outdoors. Naturally this litters the scenery. But we also know that this trash pollution is very wasteful, because a lot of thai stuff can be remodeled and used again. This is recycling Nowadays, almost every neigh- borhood has a recycling pro- gram. We can help by collect ing trash and litter. Then v.'rograms. They are busy day and night everywhere in the whole world. Andy sends to Graham Pashak, age 11, of Calgary 47, Alberta for his question: Does any water vapor escape from the atmosphere? ThU is possible, though it happens on a very small scale. Far more water vapor is added to the normal quota in the at- mosphere from deep under- ground. Some of this water had been trapped there since the earth formed its rocky crust. Perhaps some is formed when hydrogen and oxygen combine in underground volcantic activ- ity. ThU buried moisture contin- uously seeps and erupts to the surface. Such things as springs do not add extra water or vapor. tilings than talking about them. Today's natives lake life seriously and frequently have some special interest in unusual subjects.

TAURUS (April 20-Mny Treat the day and its doings as if it were an extra Holiday. Sec regular work as an old familiar game, rather than something burdensome. GEMINI (May 21-June Distraction hinders your work unless you focus on interesting phases of what is going on. You might get special attention from people you've not noticed. CANCER (June 21-JuIy Enter yourself into a self-im- provement system. Swear otf any bad habits, something that brings you out of the rut you've been in. LEO (July 23-Aug.

(1972: By The Chicago Tribune) ground- seeping They merely recycle water collected from rains. The few molecules of vapor that escape must ascend many hundreds of miles to the upper limits of the atmosphere. There they must convert heat into enough speed to escape the pull of gravity. Escape velocity at such heights is much lower than at the surface, where It is about miles per hour. Up there, it can be achieved by a few gaseous molecules, includ- ing perhaps a few molecules of water vapor. Questions asiea cnlMicn of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P 0.

Let blood How to clean cut Dr. Lamb Recently a Vietnam veteran told me that the best emergency fluid to use in cleansing a wound is freshly passed urine, and that it need not be your own. He said that Blackout remains a mystery TORONTO (CP) The cause of the big TV blackout, which sent the blood pressure of view- ers soaring during Saturday's telecast of the Queen's Plate, remained a mystery Monday. CTV still was awaiting a re- xirt from Belt Canada on the mechanical failure that caused he network's picture to go off he air for 10 minutes just as the race began. A videotape recording of the race was shown as soon as the picture was restored. But CTV's switchboard was jammed for an hour with calls from irate view- ers, who had been left only with he audio portion of the race. could not undersatnd why com- mercials remained unaffected while the race itself was lost. The explanation, he said, is that :he commercial originated from he main studio and not from the track where the trouble oc- curred.

FORTHIS- TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan any lap water would be more likely to contain harmful materials than would the urine. Would you please comment on this. Dear Reader I have heard this before and it seems tp be fairly common belief. It is e that freshly passed urine usually has few if any bacteria in it, in other words, it Is sterile. Urine is really water containing natural chemicals filtered directly from the blood. Thus, the Vietnam veteran's statement is at least true to the point that normal urine is sterile unless contaminated. In- cidentally, most properly treat- ed tap water Is relatively free of harmful bacteria too. Passing from that point, I am not enthusiastic about washing out wounds with any- thing unless there is signifi- cant dirt or other material in the wound. A clean cut for ex- ample is best left alone. The skin surface next to the wound is covered with bacteria. If you flush water over the surface of the wound yourself, you are often washing bacteria directly into it. One of the best ways to wash out a wound is the free flow of blood which normally occurs from a clean cut. Thus, my recommendation for a clean cut that doesn't have any ob- vious dirt or contamination is to leave it alone. Let the free flowing blood flush out the im- mediate weund, cover it if you must and go to the doctor's office and have him treat it properly. If the wound is a puncture type wound such, as a nail, washing it with water, urine or alcohol is not likely to help very much. The point that I would like to make is not so much estimated two million viewers j whether urine is more satis- of 14 CTV stations. factory than tap water, but "It was a wild, wild coinci- i rather that people should leave sad Esaw. "The timing clean cut wounds alone and if was so perfect that if anyone was going to sabotage us, that's when they would have done it." But he added that the net- work, making its debut as host of the Queen's Plate, did not suspect sabotage. In previous years, the CBC has carried the race. He said that the network has (he rights to the race for at least two more years. Have to wait OTTAWA (CP) Ontario and Quebec may have lo wait at least until early next year for federal legislation that will allow them to operate off-track betting shops.

Dear Dr. Lamb Can 50 years of living a tense, unhappy marriage create a nervous stomach and diarrhea? Dear Reader Any situa- tion that causes chronic frustra- tion and tension over a long period of time, can cause di- gestive disturbances. One of the psychic factors that is impor- tant in causing ulcers is long- term chronic frustration. The stomach and the bowel are both very sensitive to our emotional reactions. Some people do have nervous diarrhea. In the treat- ment of ulcers, diarrhea and similar digestive disturbances, the emotional aspects are ex- ceptionally important and the stressful situation should be al- leviated.
