Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE IETHBMDGE HERALD - Wednrnday, March 3, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon THURSDAY, MARCH 4 Yonr birthday today: You learn this year to rely on your own resources and to use them more directly for your own projects. Your emotional expression tends to become bolder. Today's natives are willing to work and usu- ally settle into jobs requiring steady diligence with only moderate material rewards. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): The rush job, anything inconvenient is par for the course. Unorthodox schemes do somehow work out where they are simple and direct. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Temptations are toward laziness, self - indulgence. Whatever you are involved in doing will have to be continued or repeated later under-other circumstances. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Proclaim your achievem e n t s. Arrest rate for soft-drugs last year 1,000 monthly OTTAWA (CP) - Arrests In connection with marijuana, hashish and other soft-drug offences were made by the RCMP at the rate of about 1,000 a month in 1970. This would double the 1969 rate of about 500 monthly and would redouble the 1968 rate of 250. Soft-drug amests in the 10-month period ending Jan. 31 numbered 10,845, RCMP Deputy Commissioner J. R. R. Carriere said in an interview here. He said the figure is incomplete because it doesn't include arrests by all police forces. Hard-drug arrests, mostly Involving heroin, numbered 619 in the same period. This was a hefty increase over 507 arrests in fiscal 1969-70. Deputy Carriere said the RCMP is concentrating on traffickers and is turning up more wholesale operations in the soft-drug field. A tendency to profit trafficking-the real thing-as opposed to personal trafficking -passing out drugs to a few friends-was noticeable.

It gets very severe and it seems to get worse with exertion. Walking in a cold wind makes it worse. I have had three heart attacks. 1 Dear Reader - Yes, pain from heart trouble can radiate into the jaw. Pain, such as you describe, brought on by either exercise or walking in a cold wind often means heart pain. A good test is to take a nitroglycerin tablet - the heart tablet that melts under the tongue -before walking and see if that prevents the pain. Of course, your doctor will need to prescribe the medicine for you if you are not already taking Bridge results Lsdlct Wednesday Club February M 1. Mrs. W. L. Foss, Mrs. C. B. Johnson; 2. Mrs. K.

If you are overweight, you could benefit by losing pounds and if you use tobacco or much coffee, you should stop this. A person who has heart pain while exercising or walking can often do a great deal more exercise after a significant weight loss. Dear Dr. Lamb - I have a light case of diabetes for which I am taking medication orally. My blood sugar is remaining stable, but I'm still having nervous tremors when getting up from a sitting position or arising in the morning. My doctor said it was due to blood sugar. Do you agree and, if not, what might be the cause? Is it possible to have diabetes and still not show any sugar in the urine? Dear Reader - A low blood sugar from treatment of diabetes can cause nervous tremors or faintness. It may be possible to regulate a person's diet and medicine in such a way as to prevent this problem. Diabetes involves more than just the blood sugar. It can affect the arteries and the nerves. When the nerves are involved the normal reflex actions to control the circulation may be affected in such a way as to cause faintness. Yes, it is possible to have diabetes and not have sugar in the urine, even if the diabetes is not controlled by medicine. This usually means the kidneys are not functioning properly and the excess sugar in the blood that would normally be filtered out remains in the blood stream. rectorate, which expects to release official 1970 figures late this month or early in April, said a tendency to hashish and away from marijuana appears to be developing. Couriers bringing heroin into Canada from Europe have been arrested at several airports recently. One was' given an exemplary 15-year sentence. Where heroin once was a problem only in Vancouver and one or two other major centres, it has been turning up recently in other parts of the country. A narcotic control division official said heroin addiction is on the increase, particularly among youth. British Columbia traditionally accounted for 50 to 60 per cent of hard-drug addiction, the rest mainly in Ontario and Quebec. Latest figures would show a rise on the Prairies, especially in Alberta. The number of known addicts, designated as such under the Narcotics Control Act, might surpass 4,000 for 1970. It was 3,733 in 1969, 3,459 in 1968, and 3,335 in 1967. Soft-drug arrests for the 10-month 1970-71 period /were 10,845, compared with 5,625 in all 1969-70, 2,898 in 1968-69, 1,754 in 1967-68, and 430 in 1966-67. Hard-drug arrests for the latest 10-month period were 619, against 507 in 1969-70, 540 in 1968-69, 567 in 1967-68, and 545 in 1966-67. Originality brings good enough results. Gambling backfires badly. Romantic urges encounter hindrances. CANCER (June 21  July 22): Mild surprises, mostly favorable, cut into routines. People likie to say just once what they mean today. LEO (July 23  Aug. 22): Ask for a raise if you've earned one, the earlier the better. Social contacts should expand, include somebody of unconventional views. VIRGO (Aug. 23  Sept. 22): Escapist moods are reasonable as they give your unconscious nature time to digest recent experience. Set a limit, then concentrate on practical matters helping others. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Career efforts run into technical problems. Steer a middla road between overly conventional friends and those who play games with life. , SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Not. 21): Money, matters promise a brief flash of exceptional fortune. It is important now to go ahead on your own initiative. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Give serious thought to your professional progress. When your workday is done, turn it entirely out of your mind. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Improving health and long-range welfare benefit from a serene approach to life. Interesting news perks up routines. You have something special to do for a good friend. AQIARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Take people up on their promises. Your career can be advanced with consistent effort plus a bit of showmanship. PISCES (Feb. 1� . March 20): Much of the news is different from what you epxe cted. Working conditions are headed for a shake - up in which you stand to gain. Romantic ventures include pleasant surprises. (1971: By The Chicago Tribune) GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN (e itni It t�� ckiuet tmm�i Neither vulnerable. North deals, NORTH 4K876 s7qjt CKQJll + Q 4 WEST EAST AS *J*3 V96S13 v7ak oa2 0�b�4t  78531 +j10i SOUTH 4 A q101z Cooperative signaling on the part of East and West in today's hand led to a quick upset of declarer's four spade contract. Tbe bidding was completely routine and, fortunately for his side, West got off to the only lead to give the defense a chance, namely the four of hearts. The seven was played from dummy and East won the trick with the ace of hearts. He followed this up by cashing the king next. East's play in hearts ostensibly violates the normal procedure which is to play the lower of touching honors when following to a trick. However, an exception is to be noted when a person hoWa a doubleton ace-king. By playing the ace first and then the king, it is expected that this somewhat abnormal action will alert partner to the fact that we have only a doubleton in the suit and will be in position to trump in on the third round. West was quick to grasp East's message and, on the king of hearts, he very alertly followed with the nine. He could see that if East had only two hearts, then declarer was marked with three and, if West could regain the lead'before trumps were drawn, he could give partner a ruff. It was essential to let East know how to give him the lead tho. If left to his own devices. East might be tempted to play back a club since this was the dummy's weakest suit. By dropping the nine of hearts under the king, West was employing the suit preference signal to request a diamond shift. Since the nine of hearts was an unnecessarily Ugh card that could not possibly be interpreted as a request for more hearts, it must be asking for a shift to the higher ranking of the two plain suits. If. West wished to have a club led back, he would have followed to the second trick with the three of hearts. In response to his partner's signal, East returned a diamond, and West promptly gave him the heart ruff to defeat the declarer before ha could get started. The Chameleon Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Celestine Casto, age 11, of Wichita, Kansas, for her question: How can a chameleon change color? The frisky little anoles that live in our Southwest can change the color of their skins. This is why we often call them chameleons. However, zoologists insist that the genuine chameleon is a weird looking fellow, native to Africa and other warm countries of the Old World. This true chameleon is a champion turncoat. But even the champ cannot change his skin to match every color in the rainbow.    When a chameleon reposes in a dark room, his skin becomes yellow. He may wear the same shade of yellow when squatting on a white handkerchief outdoors in bright sunlight. When removed to a brown log, also outdoors in the sunshine, his yellow color may change to dark grey. Hence, this talented turncoat does not always match his surroundings. Besides this, red, purples and many other hues are beyond his range. He can, however, turn many shades of green and yellow, plus a wide range of tones from pale grey to almost-black. The secret of his astonishing Hutterite case ruling pending HIGH RIVER (CP) - Education doesn't hurt anyone but many subjects taught in higher grades are "no good," Hutterite preacher John Wertz testified in provincial court here. He made the statement during the trial of Paul S t a h 1, charged under the Alberta School Act of unlawfully preventing his 15-year-old daughter, Martha, from attending the Cayley colony school last September. The case was remanded to March 30 for a verdict by Judge Leo Collins. Attendance officer Nor man LeGaarden laid the charges last October after Miss Stahl's absence was reported by the principal of the one-room school on the colony site near Cayley, 35 miles south of Calgary. Facing similar charges are Hutterite members Peter Entz and San Entz. Their cases were remanded to March 30, talent lies within his skin - and his color range is limited because his built-in equipment is limited. When magnified under a microscope, the top layer of his skin resembles a mass of clear jelly, stuffed with marbles of assorted sizes and colors. Looking down from the top, we see these miniature marbles are more or less sorted and arranged in three layers. Most of those in the top layer are yellow, the bottom layer is white and a layer of black pigmented cells is sandwiched in the middle. The chameleon is not limited to these colors because the pigmented cells can mirror outside colors and also blend two colors to create a third one. The color scheme is governed by light, which strikes the chameleon's bulging eye and triggers responses in a special brain center. When he sits among sunlit foliage, the lower layer of white cells mirrors the blue sky. The blue rays reflect upward and blend with the surface yellow cells to create green. The chameleon then wears a green coat that more or less matches his green background. Light reflected from a dark surface tends to trigger the black cells into action. When the chameleon is placed on a dark table top, the dark cells tend to grow and spread. They mask the white cells below and hide their blue sky reflection. As the dark cells expand, they spread fingers that mask the surface yellow cells. While these light sensitive activities are in progress, the chameleon changes from grey to darker and still darker grey. * * * Our little anole and the true chameleon are both lizards. The anole's natural skin color is green, speckled with dark pigmented cells. These cells may respond to light, temperature and perhaps also to emotions. In very strong light, they expand and blend with the natural green skin to turn the anole brown. They also expand and cause the anole to turn brown when he feels cold. Under normal conditions, the dark pigmented cells shrink and the anole wears his natural green color. Questions asfced by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
