THURSDAY, MARCH 11 Your Birthday Today: A year begins of steady development, frequently somewhat tedious, but always visibly upward. Today's natives must reconcile emotional and intellectual discrepancies early in life. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Pick up where you are, improvise further changes and improvements in your work. Seek new tools, fresh contacts. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): It is a buying day for you, rather than a selling one. See that what you do involves long- Mercury in fish Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Douglas Rowland, age 9, of Latham, New York, for his question: How does mercury get into fish? Mercury is harmful to living things. It has been here since the world began - but the earth had it buried in rusty red rocks and other minerals. Ages ago, people learned to separate it from its mineral ores. They admired the slippery, silvery metal and later they used it to make useful thermometers. Then the modern Age of Industry began. Scientists discovered many other uses for mercury. More of it was freed from the earth and used in factories. A lot of this has been dumped back into the world of nature along with other harmful pollutants.   * Some scientists also love the world of nature and respect it. For years they warned us about many harmful pollutants. But until a year ago, mercury was not on the lisit. Of course, these thoughtful chemists knew that this silvery liquid metal is harmful to living things. They also knew that a lot of it was being used to help to manufacture dozens of modern products. Naturally, some of it escaped with various waste chemicals. These industrial wastes were dumped into streams that carry most of them to the oceans. Until lately, the experts took it for granted that the dumped mercury would sink safely to the bottom of streams and rivers. Then a year ago, they found poisonous doses in Great Lakes fishes. Everybody was shocked. Right away the government set dozens of research teams to work. There were two parts to the problem. First, are other food items safe? Second, how did poisonous forms of mercury get into the fish? The government bans foods with more than five parts of mercury to a million parts. The level they allow is about ten times safer than safe. Cereals and bread, milk and potatoes and other grocery items were tested. They were safe. But fish from other lakes and certain food fish from the sea did contain poisonous forms of mercury. They were taken from the market at once, and the testing still goes on. Meantime scientists Investigated how the mercury gets into certain fishes. They need more time to explain all the details. But they now know that waste mercury does not sink safely to the bottom. In moving water it unites with other factory chemicals and forms several very poisonous mercury compounds. Some experts GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Altho the sluff was somewhat late in coming, declarer's technique was essential to success. Altho the slam hinges on a successful finesse in the trump suit, we consider it to be a reasonable undertaking. North and. South were confronted by duplication in the spade suit. If, for example, North has the king of clubi instead of the king of spades, six clubs would be a virtual laydown. Had West opened a spade-the unhid suit-there would be no story to tell for, with the club king offside, declarer must go down to defeat However, West elected to lead the jack of dlamondi from his sequence, and South had his opportunity. The king of diamonds won the first trick and the ace ol clubs was played. Inasmuch as the opposition had not taken their ace of spades, South was reluctant to bank everything on the club finesse. A diamond was led to the queen and declarer attempted to cash the ace next in order to dispose of his lone spade; however, East ruffed with the seven of clubs. South overruffed and crossed over to the heart ten in order to trump out West's remaining diamond. A heart to the jack put North in again to play the seven of diamonds which was now established as the master card in that suit. South was finally able to dispose of his losing spade as West ruffed with the only outstanding trump-the king. Declarer claimed the balance with good hearts and dubs. suspect that bitsy bacteria may help to do this deadly job. In any case, the fishes eat the mercury with their food. And those that eat smaller fishes get more concentrated doses.    In 1969, factories around Lake Erie used up 290 flasks of mercury. Last year after they learned the danger, they used less than 20 flasks. Meantimeii government experts are busy testing our foods and banning the risky ones. And science teams are busy checking all possible sources of mercury pollution. When heated, the liquid metal turns to gas. Mercury vapor has been detected in the air above furnaces that burn paper, soft coal and oil. And more is added with the other fumes that come from automobiles.

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) I 'I \ \ t IS LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Accept your height and 'think talV Dear Dr. Lamb - For some time I have Had a cracking in the jaw-hinge, especially when eating. This is not painful, but the cracking noise is most embarrassing and sometimes I find it somewhat difficult to open my mouth very wide. What is the cause? Is there any remedy? Dear Reader - The jaw-hinge is a joint and like all other joints it can become inflamed and it can even develop arthritis. The limitation of motion of your, jaw you mention could also be caused by spasm of the jaw muscle. A normal person with good mobility of the jaw should be able to open the mouth wide enough to stick the knuckles of the first three fingers between the teeth. If the problem is just muscular, exercises in opening the mouth may help. I would suggest first that you should see your dentist. If there are no changes In the joint and the problem is muscular, you might try a home remedy. Take a piece of ice and rub it gently over the jaw muscle on both sides of the face. Then try to open the mouth as wide as you can and force perhaps two knuckles between the teeth. Try this for several days and soon you may have enough movement to open your mouth normally.    Dear Dr. Lamb - I Have a problem. I am 22 years old and I'm only five feet tall. This is my problem - my height. I don't want to be five feet the rest of my life. There must be something medicine can do. I am ashamed of my height. I am healthy but short. It is not worth living this way. Dear Reader - I am not nearly as concerned about your height as I am your attitude. There is some truth to the old saying that good things come in small packages. Napoleon was short, for one example. At your age the long bones in the' legs and thigs that affect height have matured and are not likely to grow. That limits what can be done. I understand and sympathize with your feeling but you are going to have to learn to look on the positive side of life. Why don't you see your doctor and arrange for some counseling with a psychiatrist. It won't help you grow taller physically but it can elevate your mood.

Upset Belfast pets becoming nervous wrecks shooting, bombing and the sheer noise of violence is turning Belfast's dog population into nervous wrecks. Many family pets have been so upset they had to be destroyed, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said today. Families have moved out of trouble areas since the civil strife started and left their pets behind, a spokesman for the RS'PCA said. He estimated there are 20,000 dogs roaming loose. Dr. Brisbin said the more than 100 delegates attending the four-day annual convention of the Alberta Optometric Association have their time credited toward the 12 hours of annual study required for members of the profession to practise in Alberta. Dr. Brisbin, chairman of the convention, said Alberta is the first province to make such a continuing education program mandatory. "Everybody talks about continuing education, but we're the first (medical) group to do something about it," he said. The requirement "offers a guarantee to the public that the optometrist has kept up with the latest developments." Those who graduated within the last five years are exempt but "they come anyway because they're very enthusiastic," Dr. Brisbin said.
