Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 r THI IITHBRIDOI HERALD - Tutiday, March 14, 1971 Your horoscope By Jean 4 Dixon WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: A fairly average year begins of normal growth and opportunity. Self  improvement programs should be pursued diligently in all the spare time you can find, expecting no. great result ' until rather late in the year. Your health deserves extra protection throughout in terms of regular check-ups, reforming any bad habit*, and avoiding undue risks. Today's natives are industrious by natural inclination, well intentioned but apt to push others into becoming either staunch friends or bitter enemies. ARIES (March 21-April IS): * LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Firm laws on pot sought by AMA In case you have been reading that marijuana is as safe as alcohol - which isn't saying much - you might be interested in the American Medical Association's opinion on it. The AMA considers it a dangerous drug and recently reaffirmed its stand. The AMA thinks it is sufficiently dangerous to oppose relaxing laws concerning its sale, to oppose legalization of its use and to feel that penalties should be enforced to prevent its continued or increased use. That comes from the largest body of organized medicine in the country and from the very people who have to treat the patients who end up with medical problems from the drug habit. This is hardly an inducement to go ahead and try it. While I hate to see stiff penalties imposed, I must agree that marijuana, available to the public, is unsafe in any amount. Dear Dr. Lamb - Please Help! I have been to several different doctors for getting rid of worms in the past eight years. The longest I can be rid of them seems to be about six months after taking prescribed medication. Bridge results Ladies Wed. D.B.C. March 10 N.S. Tie 1. and 2. Mrs. W. L. Foss, Mrs. C. B.

I have taken pills, liquids, sterilized everything, the whole family has taken puis with still no cure of longer than six months. I have written to doctor's columns in other papers and got no answer, so here's hoping you can write one. Dear Reader - Perhaps you should go to the same doctor long enough to find out what you are not doing right. Pin worms are sometimes hard to eliminate and your doctor may need more than one chance to solve the problem. It sounds as if you have done a lot of the correct things. It is important that the whole family be treated at the same time. Perhaps you are not keeping up your total family hygiene long enough. Pin worms reside in the intestines, often at the junction of the small and large bowel. The female comes out of the rectum and lays her eggs, sometimes 11,000 of them and while she is there she causes that dreadful itching you must know pretty well by now. These worms are only about \Vi inches long but can be mighty irritating. The eggs deposited at the anus are transmitted by hands or can get on the bed sheets. They are everywhere, even in the house dust. Eggs are often under dirty fingernails. You may need to have each child and all the family members take extra precautions in bathing affected parts daily and boil bed linens and all other clothing regularly with frequent changes. A persistent recurring infection requires a major effort for a long time. Pills are great but you never know just where the reinfection might be coming from. Don't feel badly about having the infection, pin worms are widespread. Look carefully before you plunge into work, then take extra initiative. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put on a serious, determined surface while getting on with work, business contacts. GEMINI (May 21  June 20): Your feelings toward yourself reflects several ways, stirs others to join in, increases their morale. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Most matters drift along about where they were. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 21): Take the cash, resources available here and how rather than promises of what may be available in the future. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): A sense of humor makes everything more feasible. Friends are all going along for the ride, because it's fun. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): You can sell practically any- thing today if you dress it up as an experiment that worked out well. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There are special things to do both in your regular line of work and in public events. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Amid all the discussion and fanfare, certain things need caution and privacy-you can get them done by persistent diplomacy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22  Jan. 19): What you buy or invest in today promises well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Ask for avraise if you've earned it, or put a higher rating on your stock in trade. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get things settled today; look to the distant future as well as the next few lively months. (1971: By The Chicago Tribune) The Venus flytrap Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclo p e d i a to Loren P. Schmid, age 12, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for her question: How does the Vemu's-flytrap work? The plant world is full of surprises - and the Venus's-fly-trap appears to put them all together. Plants strive to thrive wherever there is sunshine, moisture and a balanced diet of usable food chemicals in the soil. They depend on a number of basic food elements that break down from organic plant and animal materials, as they decay in the soil. The Venus's-flytrap also needs this basic diet. However, it takes nutrients directly from captured in sects.    This amazing insectivorous plant should not really surprise us - that is, if we observe the multitude of wondrous features in other plant species. Flowers secrete syrupy nectar to bait the bees and some close their petals at sunset. Certain aensi tive leaves shrink shut when touched. And lately .we have learned that plants respond to various types of music and other mysterious disturbances. The Venus's - flytrap streamlines some of these features and adds a few of its own to become a Medicredit system proposed for U,S.
