Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 12 tO - 1HI IITHBRIOOC HIRAID - Thunday, March II. 1971 Indian fined for violation of Birds Act SARNIA, Ont. (CP) - Provincial Judge Alan Fowler Wednesday found Joseph Sands Jr., 21, of Walpole Island guilty of contravening the Migratory Birds Act and fined the young Chip-peawa Indian $10 or one dav in Jail. Sands' counsel, Tim Trow, asked for one month to pay and the request was granted. Outside the court Sands said the decision would be appealed to the Ontario Supreme Court. Sands was charged Dec. 8, 1970, by an RCMP constable who testified that Sands had a shotgun with four shells in it, contravening the act which allows only three. Sands argued that the act violates the Canadian Bill of Rights by taking away the property rights of Indians without due process and without compensation. But Judge Fowler disagreed. He said that under a Royal proclamation of 1763, Indians were given the right to hunt on reserves. However, he added, the proclamation said "for the present-" He said under that clause the Crown could pass such legislation as the Migratory Birds Act. "The royal proclamation was not absolute and for all time." HOROSCOPE By jeane Dixon Your Birthday Today: Expanded personal responsibility and a deep enjoyment of life are promised you this coming -year, according to how wisely you follow your intuitions. Today's natives are magnetic, g e r> p - o u s, and steady-going people. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Wind up your week with care as things will be different, with little opportunity for corrections, when you next take up your routines. TAURUS (April 20  May 20): Exerting your authority isn't the best approach to confusion and conflict. Your story should be brief and to the point. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Give thought to your basic situation, obligations, and responsibilities. Consolidate your position; avoid controversy. CANCER (June 21  July 22): Making the best of things as they are is a fine art. To know precisely what you want really takes much doing, tact and time. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22); Be-live very little of what you hear today about your friends. Dis- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Beware of pottery with a lead glaze Dear Dr. Lamb - I read about � family which had lead poisoning from drinking from an old pitcher. They keep fruit juice in it all the time. If a person got lead poisoning from drinking from this pitcher, would this cause them to be sick for a long time or kill them? What are the symptoms? Please write a few lines on lead poisoning. Dear Reader - Yes, there have been several accounts recently on the problem you mention. Young children sometimes get lead poisoning from picking paint off old buildings. One account estimates that as many as 20,000 children were afflicted this way in New York City in one year. Fortunately, only two died. The hidden source of lead poisoning is glazed pottery used for cooking or storing food or drink. Lead glazes make beautiful pottery and are used in making ceramics. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine recently reported the episode you refer to. Two young boys had been drinking apple juice from a lead  glazed pitcher and one of them died. Earthenware pot- tery bought in Mexico can be a real health hazard. Don't use any earthenware for food unless you know it is not coated with a lead glaze. WATCH OUT TOO, FOR THOSE CERAMIC UTENSILS MADE IN CRAFTS AT SCHOOL. Your child may be pleased to see you use a cup he made, but you may be gradually poisoning yourself. Lead poisoning causes a lot of different symptoms, including anemia, headaches, irritability and a dark line on the gums. Abdominal pain and diges-t i v e disturbances, including nausea and vomiting, may occur. Painters using lead paints often have this problem and they may even have pain similar to appendicitis. The brain may be affected, too. This usually occurs in young children. The child may have convulsions. Mental confusion can occur with gradual poisoning. Some people are left with permanent blindness or deafness. It is hard to diagnose lead poisoning from symptoms alone. You need laboratory tests in most cases to be sure. Some simple blood tests usually identify the problem. content gets you nowhere and might hinder success later. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Despite some minor breaks in schedules, you can handle any problems from what you've learned already. Good manners bridge many gaps, save confusion.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Friends need you more than their comments imply. Be helpful anyway. A good question brings you up short with no ready answer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Remember that all things mechanical do just what they're designed to do, and everything depends on how you handle them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22  Jan. 19): Haste and error go hand in hand to plague your work - if you let them. Understand what you're getting into in formal agreements. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Wait, give others a clear chance to act and correct themselves before you land in the midst of their difficulties. PISCUS (Feb. 19 - March 20): Almost any discussion has the seeds of dissension already. Your career efforts should bo sensible, discreet. Make your evening quiet. (1971: By The Chicago Tribune) Near extinction Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Diana Reynolds, age 12, of Shreveport, Louisiana, for her question: Which bird is nearest extinction? Sad questions like this one tempt us to sink into grief and to give up trying. But hopelessness is a certain shortcut to doom. It steals our healthy faith in ourselves and love of life. In this case, it also deprives our endangered birds of the help that might save them. By all means, let's face the fact that all life on earth is threatened. But with faith and courage we can, in time, reverse such dangers as pollution. There may be time to save many endangered animals. We can at least delay the final extinction of those already doomed. While they live, there is still hope that our efforts may help nature to re-establish them.  * * Pollution and the human population explosion threaten all life on this luxurious planet-including humanity. Of all nature's creatures, the birds bear the heaviest burden. Those in most serious danger are the meat eaters - the hawks and owls, the falcons and eagles and the fish  eating ospreys. Their survival is attacked on two fronts. Their diets include large doses of DDT and other poisonous pollutants. And, as with all other birds, their nesting grounds and food ranges are taken from nature to make room for human housing projects. Government agencies and concerned adults are moving to halt and repair the devastation.
