Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE inHBRIBGE HERAID Tueiday, Mnrth 20, 197J YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21 Your birllulay today: To- day's natives tend to work In'heavy rustics, with gaps of idleness interspersed, but are very practical in their organ- izational efforts. AHIES (March 21 April LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Death evokes parental guilt Dr. Lamb Our son died a few months ago at age 27. The diagnosis of his illness was hypertensive pyelonephri- tis finally going into uremia and anemia due to chronic glom- enilonephrilis, would like very much to know what caused tltis disease and if it was present since his birth. He did not drink but did indulge in drinking much milk, one of the first foods forbidden when the nephritis was discov- ered through urine, blood tests and x ray studies two years ago. We feel more should have been done for him, perhaps a transplant that may have caus- ed him to live longer. All thai was done was the blood and urine test every four months and he was given medication for high blood pressure. Could you discuss this disease glomer- ulonephritis? I did ask the rena doctor at the medical center about it and all he said was that everything that was hum anly possible was done. It is all too late now but the nagging thought that we should have done more dominates our gric for our son. I would appre ciate it very much if it is pos sible for you to comment on this disease. Dear Reader I understanc your grief and know that it i particularly difficult to fac this problem when it a young, vigorous man begin rung life. Let me tell you that the med ical center that you mentionec in your letter has the best o reputations and is undoubted! one of Uie best medical centers in Uie United States, with a top notch staff. The staff there has the knowledge and the facilitie to accomplish almost anythin that is within the range of ca ability of the medical profe sion. As parents your first o ligation was to be sure th your son was seen at such facility. I really believe th you The easier going your approach the belter. Social flings bring about unexpectedly high ex- penses, further complications. TAUKUS (April 20-May It takes time to taper down from yesterday's tensions. Se- rious conversations bring last- ing impressions. GEMINI (May 21 June Temporize with the impatience of younger people, find some lesson in watching them. This is a good day for slowing down. CAN'CEH (June 21 July An optimistic mood is par for the course but may lead to overconJidence. Invite old friends for a quiet party. I.EO (July 23 Aug. The emphasis shifts to your basic you aro directly concerned will' you are directly concerned with improving and holding. (Aug. 23 Se. to force perfection temporary procedures wastes lime, diverts your at lention from something mor important. UllHA (Sept. 23 Oct. 22) ou did everything Ihal ossibly could've done. This affliclion begins with an fection involving the kidneys. The kidney damage causes a ise in blood pressure. Sonic-: 23 -Sept. mes the problem is first dis- u overed from high blood pres- Ont0 ure on a medical examination. Kidney transplants have been eally great in selected cases. 'or their best success, however, le recipient's health has to be easonably good with exception f the kidney problem. In your on's case the doctors probably lad good reasons to think that wouldn't work and might even ave been dangerous or that he ould not have survived such a irocedure. Milk was discontinued be- cause it contains salt which ag- gravates the elevation of blood >ressure and can result in re- ention of fluid and ether prob- ems. Proir to the development of Us illness I doubt that the milk he drank had any bear- ng at all upon his difficulties. I believe that if you really ap- preciated that his illness was really caused by an infection lhat you can understand that the way he was fed, raised and other such factors had little or no bearing upon the develop- ment of his illness. I wish there were something else I coukl tell you. Knowing the nature ol the disease I can say, though, that I am certain that your son's living habits had nothing to do with his develop- ing the illness and I'm equally certain that he received the best medical atlention one could hope lo obtain. You will miss him bul please know that you did everything that you could. SEcnd your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O. Bos 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10013.

J 2 O Q5J SOUTH K.I8 V AQ87 0 K105 QJ7 The bidding: Sontli Nortb INT Pass 3 NT Pass Pass Opening lead: Six of A simple holdup play would have provided South, Uie declarer at three no trump, the means to an alert defender In today's hand. West opened the six of clubs, a small club was played from dummy, East put up the ten and South won the trick with the jack. The dummy was entered with the king of hearts to lead the ten of spades, East rose with the ace to return the Jive of clubs. South played the queen and, when "West covered with the king, lie was permitted to hold the trick. A third round of clubs cleared the suit as East dis- carded a heart. South could count only eight tricks at this one spade, three hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. In order to establish a ninth, he led i spade to the king in his hand, hoping to drop the queen behind him if West had started with a double- ton. [He did not mind sur- rendering a trick lo East, If the latter held the queen, be- cause East was out of clubs.] When the queen held firm. South continued with a round of spades. West was In and he pro- ceeded to cash two club tricks, sending his opponent down to defeat. He praised his partner's alertness in putting up the ace of spades to clear the club by preserving West's entry in spades. North pointed out that Soulh could have prevented effective cooperation, in es- tablishment of the club suit, by severing his opponent's line of communications. All he has to do is to duck the first trick permitting East to win the ten of clubs. Ob- serve that declarer retains two stoppers in the suit for, when East continues with the tive, West may cover the Jack with his king to dis- lodge dummy's ace how- ever, South still has the queen. Now when Ihe ten of spades is led, if East plays the ace, he has no club left which to clear the suit. If he ducks permitting West to win the trick with the queen, the latter is left en- tryless and cannot run the clubs once they become es- tablished. In the event that East doe.) have a third club, declarer !s safe, for with the suit di- viding four-three, the defend- ers can take a maximum of two spades and two clubs on the deal. Earth is beautiful Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Dawn Schmitt, age 12, of Coventry, Rhode Island, for her ques- tion: What does the earth look like from other planets? We always knew our earth is a lovely planet. But until it was photographed from outer space, we never imagin- ed ils real breath-t a k i n g beauly. Seen- from above the atmosphere, ils round disk is scrolled with the flowing lines of pastel continents and sapph- ire seas, revealed and conceal ed by scarves of shifting clouds. These jewel-toned fea- res of our beauteous earth an be seen from as far away s the moon. V As we know, our planet is a olid globe and from outei pace its daylight side shines reflected glory from the un. Tiiis is true of the other lanels and nt least some f them must see us more or ess as we see them. Venus hpuld have Uie biggest and Tightest view of the earth ut it does not. This is because s deep, dense, dusty atmos- here blots out everything in he Vcsiivian sky. From Mercury, whenever the arlli is in sight, it must ap- as a big bright round isk. This is because Mercury las an inner orbit and it sees nly the side of our globe lhat aces the sun. If there were Martians, they would see the arlh very much as Venus ap- lears to us. They would watch t play the roles of the Morn ng and Evening Stars. And, because our orbit is closer to he sun, the view from Mars would show our daylight side sections, much as we see thp changing phases of tbe moon. Giant Jupiter is 11 limes wid< er than the earth. When it is visible in our skies we always see the full disk of ils dayligh side and sometimes it out- sliincs all the stars in Uie sky But if there were Jovian asfron omers, they would need better eyes than ours to see the earth in their skies. Observers on Saturn and the other oulei planets would need superioi telescopes to find our littli planet. Jupiler.'s huge orbit is almos 400 million miles farther froi Ihe sun than ours. Viewed Iron out there, our planet would ap pear to weave from side lo sid of Ihe sun. It is never farthe from the dazzling sun than 1 degrees, which is about 1, limes widor than Ihe fu moon appears to us. Fror Mars, the earth appears I weave about 48 degrees each side of the sun. On Eartl our views of the other plane change from day to day. Fton the other planets, Uie eart also appears to change from day to day. Venus should have the bes view of the earth when we ar both on Ihe same side'of Ih sun. Then the distance betwee us may be merely 24 million niles. ]f Venus were cloudless, an observer would see our full daylight side in all its golden At tliis time, however, Venus would be invisible to us. This is because its dark, night- side is then turned to face out- ward in our direction. Andy sends to Lori Walton, age 12, of Ottawa, Ontario, for her quesUon: How old do elephants get to be? As a general rule, larger ani- mals tend lo have longer life expectancies than smaller ones. Also as a general rule, captive aiiimals tend to live longer than those exposed to the hazards ci Ihe wild. Hence we would ex- pect a domestic elephant to live to a great age. AJid barring accidents, so he does. An Indian elephant, trained to work with man, lias an average span of 70 to 75 years. An African ele- phant, who insists on his righl
