Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta loKlrdoy, Jun. 24, 1972 ICTHBRIDCE HERALD YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SUNDAY, JUNE 25 Your Birthday Today: Am- bition and expediency lake turns dominating nnd direct- ing your material and social affairs this coining year. Emotional experience flows strongly, building sound rela- tionships. Today's natives are sociable but petulant, gen- erally very sharp of hearing. ARIES (March 21 April Your restless mood shouldn't disturb your home life. Get an early start, make your regular Sunday rounds placidly, with time out for rest. TAURUS (April 20 May Your tact and deep feeling make the difference as you en counter temperament. The rea! issues probably aren't put into You arc in the middle this Sun- day, so you may as well try icing peacemaker. Hasty hand- ling of heavy equipment is un- 'isc. CANCER (June 21 July If you can get past your own sensitivity, you may be liter- ally or figuratively a life-saver for somebody in a worse situa- tion. You are actually further aliead than you feel. Relax. LEO (July 23 Aug. Ca- ter to your personal needs and and limitations today. Avoid fatigue. Your friends are will- ir.'j to show you strange ways of wasting money. VIUGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Emotional stress now is to be channeled into some creative expression. Speculative enter- prises are doubtful, should be Fishy menace Andy sends a 'complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Lis- beth Hyler, age 10, of Cha- grin Fall, Ohio, for her question: How can the lion fish be poisonous? Watch out for the lionfish, who is also known as the zebra fish or the turkeyfish. He is a little beauty about one foot long, but don't let his looks fool you. This glamor fish is a menace, armed with poisonous spikes. However, we are not likely to meet the lionfish while swimming off our beaches. He is at home in the Indian Ocean and the Southwest Pacific. Some of his milder relatives lurk along our shores, thougt they are smaller, more shy and less poisonous. Ordinary fish have smooth, streamlined bodies. Their fins are somewhat like gauzy fans, stiffened with pliable ribs. The body of the gaudy lionfish is mostly hidden like a pincushion inside an array of enormous spikes. Actually, they are extra long ribs reaching far out from the fins on his back, sides and tail. About 18 of them are fit- ted with spiked ends, grooved sides and poison making glands. Even his non-poisoned spikes can tear nasty wounds. But when the poisonous ones pierce the flesh, the venom flows along the grooves and is in- jected into the wounds. Most experts claim that these stabs are seldom fatal. But they do paralyze a victim's muscles. A lone swimmer might be loo stiff or too weak to make it back to shore. The spikes of the lionfish may be almost as dan- gerous as a lion's claws. His handsome body has vivid black and white zebra stripes, which explains why some peo- ple call him the zebra fish. His spikey fins are speckled with bright bars of black and white. When he spreads them apart, they look somewhat like the ruffled tail of an angry turkey. This explains why some people call him the turkeyfish. Actual- ly he belongs to a rather nasty group called the scorpion fish- es. They are also known as the mailcheek fishes because their cheeks are stiffened with bony plates. Like scorpions, all of them have stingers. Several milder scorpionfish live along our Atlantic and Pa- cific shores. Most of them wear spikes along their spines and frilly fans under their chins. Some of their spikes may be armed with poison-making 'lands, but the venom is less dangerous than that of the lion- fish. Most of them are called rock fish, because they shelter quietly among the rocks in shallow water. Their speckled butterfly colors blend in with the sun-speckled water. U 0 Our rockiisbes have assorted cousins who prefer life in varmer seas. One is the gaudy sea robin, who uses his spikes to walk on the bottom. The rose fish the toadfish and the sea raven also belong to the group. The worst of the bunch is the stonefish, who hides himself in the muddy sand below the In- dian Ocean. Bathers wading in shallow reefs may step on him by accident and when they do, his spikes inject a poison that is often fatal. Andy sends to Jeff Thorn, age 9, of Eugene, Oregon, for his question: How long did it take to carve Mount Rushmore? You would expect it to take a long lime to finish the largest stone carving in the world. The actual job of carving the four [iant heads on Mount Rush- LIBRA (Sept. 25 Oct.

Personal relations are vivid, with prob- ably several memorable mo- ments of drama defying ex- planation. If you have a technical specialty, status comes to you; if not, much can be done about it. Today's natives often hoard small ob- jects. ARIES (March 21 April Go ahead with agreed plans despite belated misgivings or reservations. Others change their minds and let down on promises.

The sculptor was Gutzon Borglum, who was 'amous for creating giant-sized statues. He spent several years designing tlie Mount Rushmore leads and planning how the enormous job could be done. In 1927, the actual carving work began on the steep granite mountain in South Dakota. Teams of workmen dyna- mited and drilled while the artist showed them how to copy his models. His son Lin- coln worked with him and un- derstood the plans. Several times the work was inter- rupted, but gradually the great heads took shape. In 1941, after 14 years, they were almost fin- ished and Gutzon Borglum died. The last few details were finished by his son. At last the world's biggest stone carving was unveiled and Mount Rush- more became a National Me- morial. Questions asxed Dy csnflicn of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
