Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, March 5, 1971 Your horoscope By Jean e Dixon SATURDAY. MARCH 6 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: In striving to consolidate your own position you do a major service for others as well. Simplify your daily living. Drop useless routines. Your work should be diversified. Today's natives generally show a strong love of family and some interest in occult arts. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Social activity is the indirect key to much of the future. Paradoxically, if you simply seek people to benefit you, you merely waste time and money. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There's much to put in order. Catch up with belated correspondence. Plan for replacing or refurbishing clothing and belongings. GEMINI (May 21-Junc 20): It is your turn to organize things this morning. If you have friends with more influence than yourself, join forces, find out how it's done. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pei-sonal promotion is the order of the day. Seek people you seldom see, make introductions among friends. You have quite a lot going for you now. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Reassuring advice for troubled girl Dear Dr. Lamb - I am so embarrased to write about this but it really worries me. I am 13 and I have been having a whitish, clearish discharge from my vagina. It doesn't cause any pain or itching but I don't know what causes it or where I got it. Could I have gotten it in gym class? What can I do about it? Dear Reader - Do not be embarrassed. Women normally have some discharge from the vagina. In mature women the normal discharge is minimal and serves to keep the delicate lining of the vagina lubricated. The amount of discharge tends to increase about halfway between periods or at the time the female egg is released and again a day or two before periods. It is also increased during pregnancy. The discharge may be ratha: heavy in young girls, about your age. The marked discharge occurs a few years before and after the onset of periods. The discharge is creamy white or clear and causes no odor or i t c h i n g. It is not a venereal disease or an infec- tion. IE the discharge is gray or greenish, has a bad odor, or if there is itching, then it may be an infection and anyone with this problem MUST see a doctor. Taking too many douches can increase the amount of discharge. For the most part women are better off to avoid douching with anything except water containing a little salt or vinegar and restricting their efforts to external hygiene, im-less advised to do so by their doctor for an infection. Here is an item of interest to young mothers or those about to be. Cigarettes have just been linked to an increased likelihood of convulsions in babies of smoking mothers. If you want to help protect your child from having fits, don't smoke. The study began in Britain in 1958 with a survey of 17,000 babies bom in one week. The studies 12 years later reveal that 18 per cent of the mothers who smoked 10 or more cigarettes a day had children who had convulsions, while only 13 per cent of the mothers who did not smoke had this difficulty. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): There's such a range of things to do that you must choose early and concentrate. Select one area and meet with all sorts of contacts there. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Your friends coax or provoke you into doing quite a bit beyond your plans. Take full advantage of a chance for esthetic pleasures, LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Family, friends are alive with ideas for improving their lot. Influential people are helpful if they can see a clear path ahead of you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The personal touch opens doors that no amount of formal pressures would crack. Make the rounds of your community, renew old acquaintances. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A windfall is promised somewhere in your family. If you have no urgent career matter to pursue, stay around home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Get your day started with a smile and a hiE^py outlook; finish it with a small party. There are so many things to do in between you won't have time to get off the track. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You're in better shape than you give ycurself credit for, so accept aimenities and compliments as they come. A change of scene is beneficial. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Try to know your neighbors better. It's a good day for rumv maging through the attic, reminiscing about old things left over from bygy>ne times. (1971: By The Chicago Tribunte) How snails eat Andy sends a complete 20-volumne set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Mark Ricketts, age 9, of Oxford, Georgia, for his question: Does a snail have teath? Mr. Snail likes to live a very quiet life in the garden. You don't often see the old slowpoke because most, of the time he manages to stay hidden. But my, you- can see what he does to your favorite plants. He dines on greenery - and he eats the tenderest young leaves he can find. He may eat a.big hole in a leaf, or he may eat the whole thing and leave just the stubby stalk. Naturally you' wonder whether he has teeth to bite and chew up all this greenery.    A snail has a most unusual body. He carries his eyes on top of two tall stalks and manages to get around without legs. The shell on his back is his house and he carries it with him all the time. He also has an unusual way of eating his food. For example your teeth Sew cancer equipment goes into production OTTAWA (CP) - New cancer treatment equipment goes into commercial production here this year, enabUng radioactive cobalt pellets to be placed inside the body, moved around there and withdrawn by remote control without surgery or a stay in hospital. The equipment is the brachy-tron, the latest piece of medical eiigineering from the commercial products division of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., which pioneered the cobalt 60 beam therapy imits now used throughout the world to fight cancer. AECL, a Crown corporation, has already built two brachy-trons. They are undergoing clinical ti-ials by eminent radiologists in two major California hospitals. Things look so promising that the company has decided to begin commercial production with three more of them. They will sell for about $27,000, J. A. Stevenson, project marketing co-ordinatv. , is counting on the brachytron to defeat looming sales rivals through greater sophistication and precision in performing its tasks inside the body.
