Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE March Your horoscope By Jeane Duon WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6 Your birthday today: Your year starts reasonably enough, much going for you, with indications of staying in the same old comfortable grooves of habit and routine; but it will not work out that way Midyear brings detours, challenge for special efforts; and if you do not develop new tactics, some definite obstacles appear. Today's natives are impressionable, have an affinity for family or group life which attracts, steady relationships. ARIES (March 21-April Competition increases. Finesse with friends, relatives is very much needed. Problem-solving among local circles thrives; make the effort' TAURUS (April 20-May Concern over family, property, possessions goes on, spurs you to take some belated step to simplify the situation Strangers are apt to be critical. GEMINI (May 21-June Make the rounds early; there is a story you need to hear and get a second version while it is fresh Asking questions is the least productive approach. CANCER (June 21-July A mixed sort of day; some contacts are very profitable, others lose a bit. Confidential advisers are to be shielded from publicity at almost any cost. LEO (July 23-Aug. You have a wide range of choice about what to do. Whatever you decide, it is likely to be your own singlehanded effort. Expect no relief or immediate help. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. You have reason to abstain, from criticism, as almost any comment you make now is taken for more than you intend Let other people do the talking. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. If you have a good idea, put it to use immediately. Asking questions merely sets off many rounds of discussion, during which very little gets done. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Despite some uphill going, business'deals mature nicely today. Bring, home 'some tangible evidence of your mood and degree of prosperity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Now is the time to take a long look at the protection and well-being of those you cherish. There may be something you should do about them CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. All the variables except financial rearrangement are open for adjustment. Get off to a running start and stay on the ball for a day of steady effort. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. You've gotten to the point of feeling that you need little "advice at precisely the point where it would do the most good if you will listen. PISCES (Feb. 19 March Anything will do for an excuse. It's your responsibility to ignore provocation or teasing. There are far more important activities than squabbling. 1974, The Chicago Tribune Fun with figures By J. A. H.

Ask Andy DISCOVERING ALASKA Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Lynda Feller, age 15, of Millersville, Pennsylvania, for her question: Who discovered Alaska? Many thousands of years ago, Alaska was a highway for adventurous travelers. They came from various parts of Asia and most of them continued on farther south. Taking their time, they spread throughout the length and breadth of the Americas. Several groups stayed in the far north. AH these early travelers were, of course, the native Americans found by Leif Ericson and later by Columbus and his men. No one knows exactly when Alaska was discovered first. But it must have been at least and maybe more than years ago. We know this because the original Americans came from northern Asia by a land bridge that existed across what is now the Bering Strait. It is thought that they wandered into the New World in small separate groups perhaps through several thousand years. In this case, Alaska was discovered many times by persons unknown. As other groups wandered on to populate the rest of the New World, at least three distinct groups stayed in the far north. The charming Eskimos made themselves at home near the northern and western shoreline. The Aleuts were clever sea hunters who settled the Alaskan Peninsula and the Aleutian Islands. The interior and the southeast were occupied by groups of American Indians. This is how things were in the 1720s when Peter the Great of Russia wanted to know whether the northeast corner of his territory had a land bridge to North America. with the ace. West discard- ing a club. It seemed auto- matic to give West his tuff, but East paused to review the situation. West was un- likely to hold anything in the way of high cards, so two heart tricks and a ruff and East's two black aces were not going to be enough to set the contract The only place to hope for another trick seemed to be via a club ruff, which was a distinct possibili- ty, since East controlled the trump suit. Accordingly, East shifted to ace and another club, won in dummy. Had declarer routinely led a trump, East would have hopped up with the ace and the defenders would have scored their ruffs for a one-trick set But declarer was aware of East's designs, and found an elegant way to foil the de- Ducfe be cashed the king and ace of diamonds, and then led the jack of diamonds.

East had no way to reach West to obtain a dub raff, and the defenders had to be satisfied with two heart tricks, a diamond and the two black aces. The curious-minded Czar decided that the man to solve the mystery was a Danish explorer named Captain Vitus Bering. However, Bering had to travel thousands of miles and make two hazardous jour- neys before he finally sighted the mainland of Alaska. The first mission of discovery began in 1725 with a mile trudge through frigid northern regions of Asian Russia. In 1728, Bering's party reached Kamchatka Peninsula, a finger of land dipping down from northern Siberia. There Bering built a ship, the Saint Gabriel, and sailed forth to discover Saint Lawrence Island, which is now part of Alaska. En route, he sailed through the famous Bering Strait that separates the Old World and the New. However, the weather was foggy and Bering did not sight the mainland of North America on this voyage. But Czar Peter the Great was not one to be discouraged. In 1741, he sent Bering forth on a second attempt, this time with a Russian explorer named Alexei Chirikif aboard. Bering's party sighted Mount St. Elias on the Alaskan mainland and landed on Kayak Island. These men were the first European explorers to discover the mainland of Alaska. Later in the century, the famous Captain James Cook sailed to the Bering Strait along the Alaskan coast and many explorers were sent to the region by Spain and France. But the rich fur trapping region was claimed by the Russians, who found it first Questions aeked'by ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

She has been given physics most of her life and many enemas. She screams on the stool for as much as an hour at a time with my daughter or others at her side, either encouraging or demanding that she release it. My daughter insists that when she is kept on a strict diet that she doesn't have nearly as much trouble. We all try to abide by this, little or no sweets, in order to help the child. I have watched all this go on for a long period of time. My daughter and other members of the family insist that all this is psychological and my concern is that perhaps it is not. I am neither a doctor nor a psychologist; but neither are they. In behalf of the child I contend that a physical examination should be made of this area as a first step. Am I wrong? Will you please advise me, Doctor? I have no one else to turn to without causing family trouble. Dear Reader It is an important problem. And, your daughter is probably right in the context that psychological factors can be very important in such cases. However, it really doesn't make any difference whether it is psychological or because of some other problem, it does require proper treatment. Usually this is not laxatives and enemas. The idea that sweets should be limited and the diet should contain more roughage; vegetables, cereals, whole wheat products, is wise. Even a child needs sufficient bulk in the diet for proper function of the colon. It is important to develop good bowel habits early in life but that specifically does not include talking laxatives and enemas. A laxative habit at any age can be harmful. It is just possible that the little girl already has a.spastic colon because of her bowel habits and the use of laxatives. And, believe me, that can be painful. This may be why she screams. Yes, she needs an examination. This might need to include a study of her colon to see how it is functioning. She needs to be put on a diet that will help her more. It may be that she will need a bowel training program, which includes developing regular bowel habits. That means plenty of warm liquids at breakfast and each morning sitting on the commode for 15 minutes. A bowel movement is not necessary. I think the amount of attention she gets from the present ritual is not conducive to developing good habits. She .should be allowed to go to the bathroom and left there. If she doesn't have a bowel movement, okay, she may have one the next day. It is not necessary to have a bowel movement every day. Why don't you encourage your daughter to take her to the doctor and try to develop a good program for her. For more detailed information about constipation write to me, in care of this newspaper. P.O. Box 1551 Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10022, and ask for the "Constipation" booklet Send 50 cents to cover costs. Bowel training can have important effects on the psychological reactions of a person later in life. The idea of withholding a bowel movement to punish the parents gets started fairly early in life. The child can reward or punish anxious parents by their actions. Sometimes a child with real severe problems needs help from a child psychologist or psychiatrist This can be quite important. So, it isn't a matter of whether it is psychological or not, bat rather one of a condition that need treatment VOO ARE TOO VSUCH McGOON--- c -ID BE TRUSTBO THE SECRETS OF KUNG FU.
