Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta iM - IMI inHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, March 34, 1971 Your horoscope By Jean4 Dixon THURSDAY, MARCH 25 YOUR BIRTHDAY TO-DAY: You can have a bal-cpn year ahead if you will simply take up existing opportunity wliere you are and woric earnestly. Seek the backing of older people and community institutions for your ventures. Social and romantic interests sho\Hd include no particular urgency or crisis, much quiet, self-fulfillment. Today's natives apprediate fine arts, esthetic values in any field. I.AWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Think young, dan't dwesll on aihnents Dear Dr. Lamb - Would thinking about getting old and wrinWes and varicose veins caus6 these things to happen? Dear Reader - If you tliink about them long enough. � * * Dear Dr. Lamb - J have angina of the heart and wondered if my one ever gets over this or is it sometMng I will have to leani to live with? I am nervous and in my 40s and femate. Would you say something about angina of the heart in your column? Dear Reader - V� most common cause of ai^nal cfaest pain is atherosclerosis, fatty deposits in the arteries. It is fairly uncommon in women of your age and quiit� conunon in older women. Men can have it, too, particularly after a heart attack. Emotional tension or excitement can cause t2ie pain. That is why the doctor tries to eliminate excitement or stress for a heart patient. Often an overweigbt person can help himself by losing a lot of weight. This decreases the amount of work the heart needs to do. I can't emphasize too strongly that even if a person has a minimal amount of extra fat, the loss of fat can greatly increase the amount of work a person can do without having Iwart pain. Of course, coffee, particularly in nervous people, should be stopped and cigarettes eliminated. After weight reduction some people benefit from a walking program But before you stMt you should check with your doctor to be certain an exercise program won't be too mucfa for you. Incidentally, life's situations - like getting excited watcMng television - often cause the heart to work harder tban a good normal walk. A person has to have rather severe heart disease before be can't walk k good weather. *   Dear Dr. Lamb -Is chicken fat hi^ to dx^esteivl? Dear Reader - No. However the American Heart Association believes that a diet high in fat leads to elevation of the blood ciholesterol in the body even if the food is low in cholesterol. This is particularly true of saturated fat, (usually animal fat). Fryer chickens and young turkeys are the best poultry source of meat with limited amounts of fat. ARIES (March 21 - April 19); Your intuition turns out better than advice or examples from past experience. Look around, notice things that would ordinarily escape your attention. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Understanding is essential today. Surprises you plan for others turn out strangely; likely nothing you intended. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Now you should listen, learn what is wanted, and arrive at closer sharing of responsibility. After settling maitters, find an atmosphere which gives your unconscious a chance to digest the day's experience. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Waste no time and energy fighting the opinions of others - get competent advice early and adhere to it. The evening wwUl bring better perspective. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Much of today depends on how well you remember things told you long ago in confidence plus how closely you attend diang-ing conditions of the present moment. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept, 22): In general what you hear about your friends is incorrect, perhaps intended to draw correc- tions and comments from you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): To balance other people's personalities and resources turns out quite a chore but worth doing. Being impulsive and stubborn doesn't pay. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): If discussion will hurt, then the project isn't valid or you've gone too far ahead of your collaborators. Today is a test; all you've done lately comes to attention and comment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Turn loose and enjoy the situation; expect nothing very extreme to come of present experiments. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You have more energy available than usual - match your pace vnth others, conserve reserves for another round later. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Prosperity begins at home, with what you do for yourself, the way you feel about yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): Today is a crossroads of choice, on many levels. Even ordinary routines require unusual care. I>l \M I s L  /HE JUCT srgppeo) TUMBIEWEEDS-By TOM K. RYAN Wfs fSQomG-fo BEO/VEOFMV BETTER PAYS. BLONDIE-By Chic Young m.OOO hungry for famine relief NAIROBI (AP) - Drought in areas of Kenya has placed more than 140,000 people on famine relief and aided the spread of cholera. The disease took 20 lives in one recent week. These are areas where living is at the subsistence level, and virtually everything goes wrong when the rains fall. Tens of thousands of people may rely on famine relief for months. If the spring rains fail, tens of thousands of others will face starvation. If the rains come in abundance, many fear floods will wash away seeds nd seedlings while making roads impassable for relief supplies. Recently, an army of some 18,000 finally stopped -a' forest fire on the slopes of Mount Kenya, but only after it had destroyed about 17,000 acres of timber worth nearly $3 million. Drought, caused by the failure of the "short rains" in November and December, has burned crops m the wUting sun, dried wells and river beds and left thousands of camels, goats and cows to die in the dust. FACE MALNUTRITION . Doctors say people living In the affected areas face dehydration and malnutrition, leaving them weak and susceptible to illness. CSiolera, marked by diarrhoea and vomiting, can kill within 24 hours without quick medical treatment. It killed an unknown number of people in neighboring Somalia and Ethiopia earlier this year. The figure is unknown because many died in the bush and some governments are reluctant to reveal figures for fear of causing panic among inhabit ants, visitors and importers. Within a week of Kenya's first reported cholera case, Israel and Japan each flew in one million doses of vaccine. Authorities launched a widespread health education and cleanup campaign as doctors administered the vaccine. Nairobi, a city of 500,000, and the port city of Mombasa have reported shortages of dairy products due to the drought's effect on milk production. The Fort supermarket in Mombasa says milk supplies have been cut by half and butter and cheese deliveries are down 90 per cent. A busy Nairobi market said its customers bad accepted arbitrary rationing of dairy products. Kenyan officials say available livestock is down 40 per cent. Three-fourths of its sources are under quarantine as cattie, weakened by lack of water and fodder, also face disease. Communist Ctma. last week gave President Jomo Kenyatta a cheque for $81,000 on behalf of the Chmese Red Cross and promised food and medical supplies worth nearly $300,000. Zanzibar Island donated $140,000, 380 tons of rice and 20 tons of dates. Return of birds Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Lori - Ann Livingston, age 10, of Niagara Falls, Ontario, for h^ question: Why do birds bother to come back in the spring?

West opened the king of clubs, and when it held the trick, be continued with the queen. Had East overtaken with his ace and continued the suit to give his partner a ruff, there would have been BO way for the declarer to make the tiaad. However, failure to make this piay cannot be charged against East as an error, for from his standpoint if West held the third club-then overtaking with the ace could establisii the dummy's jack for ^ discard. When the queen ot clubs held at trick two, West shifted to the ten of diamonds. Declarer wisely re. frahied from putting in North's jack for a frea finesse. It did not appear to him that West was not likely to lead from a holding that included the queen, so he played the four of diamonds from dummy and won ths trick with his own ace. South led a heart to North's ace and then proceeded to run all of his trumps in order to see if any pressure could be applied against his pp. ponents. East was required to make five discards. He felt obliged to guard his diamond queen as well as to retain tha ace of clubs-so he threw two clubs, one diamond and tha ten and king of hearts. A club lead now put East in, and ha was forced to surrender tha last two tricks to North'^ king-jack of diamonds* they fly south in the fall to escape the cold. But actiially most of them could cope with our wintry waetber. There is aanother more important reason why they fly south in the fall. And this is the same reason why they fly back here to nest in the spring. �  � We can find this answer by watching the burd world - by noticing the habits of different species, what they eat, how and where th^ live. If we observe with patient friendly eyes, nature rewards us with a special gift. Without knowing it we grow an extra bump of understan^ng. We gain a bird's - eye view of life and know a litUe about what it's like to be a bird. This view helps us answer many bird questions that pop into our heads. For example, we can trace the roundabout reasons why birds bother to come back to us in the spring. True, it seems lo^cal for them to stay south where both summers and winters are warm. But they don't - and the main reason is food. For his size, a busy little bird is a very big eater. His special personal diet may be weed seeds or water weeds, worms or assorted insects or maybe frogs and fishes. In any case, he snacks all the time and he may eat his own weight in food every day. Cliances are, the sturdy bird could stand the whiter's cold. But come fall, the plants die down and the insect population goes into hiding. -This food shortage is the main reason why swallows and swifts, wrens and warblers and dozens of others flock south to mild winter climates. There they find enough groceries to keep them aUve. However, t h �s e winter homes are very crowded with all sorts of migrating birds. Usually, there is enough food tor all - but none to spare. Grown birds can survive on short wmter rations - but famished baby birds require far more than their parents. So as nesting time approaches, the parents prepare to depart. In early spring they flock north and spread oiit far and wide across the land to raise their families. The parents bmid the nest where thei'e is a large area to hunt for ail that baby food. And, naturally, they arrive in time to welcome the spring greener}' and greet the first swarms of insects. With all these rewards waiting, surely the long journey seems like no bother at all. Wild ducks and many other brdds spend the winter Y>y our lakes and swampy shores. In spring they depart for their nesting grounds in the far north, niere, where the sunny air swarms with insects and the ground bursts with tender plants, the young ones feed {md thrive. Come tall, the snow buries the plants and the frost freezes the ponds. The birds vrith their grown families then flock south to spend the winter.

(Copyright Chronicle PubUshing Co. 1971) 24,400 move from U.S. to Canada Zinc price up NEW YORK (AP) - Ana-conda Sales Co. announced Monday an increase in the price of some of its zinc. The company said the price for its prime Western zinc would be increased immediately by one-half cent to ISVz cents a pound for domestic destinations. OTTAWA (CP) - Only 147,713 immigrants, the lowest number since 1965, arrived in Canada last year and Immigration Minister Otto Lang attiributed the decline mainly to economic conditions here. The total was 8.6 per cent below that of 1969, when 161,531 immigrants arrived. The decline began after 1967's peak for the decade of 222,876. Despite the over-all trend, however, the number of immigrants from the United States continued to rise, numbering 24,424 last year against 22,785 in 1969. U.S. immigrants were hard on the heels of the British as the largest group coming to Canada. Last year iirflow from Britain to Canada numbered 26,497, a decline from 31,977 the year before. QUEBEC SHARE DOWN While Ontario's share of immigrants increased to 54.7 per cent-or 80,732-of the total, Quebec's continued to decline. Quebec attracted 23,261 immigrants, or 15.7 per cent, last year against 28,230, or 17.5 per cent, of the 1969 total. Ontario had 86,588 immigrants in 1969, or 53.6 per cent. The number cboosmg British Columbia held steady near 22,000, the percentage rising to 14.6 from 13.5. Alberta drew 10,405, or about seven per cent; Manitoba and Saskatchewan 17,940, or about 12 per cent; and the Attantic provinces 3,262, or 2.2. per cent. The percentage gomg to the Prairies was up slightly while that for the Atlantic provinces was down slightly. Mr. Lang said the over-all reduction "reflects our economic conditions and indicates the response of the immigration selection ciiteria to reduced employment opportunities." CHECKED FLOW In other words, the government checked the flow because of domestic unemployment. "Strong economic conditions in most of Western Europe were also a factor in reducing immi-gi-aUon from that area," Mr. Lang added. After Britain and the United States, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Yugoslavia, India and China ranked next-in that order-as som-ces of immigration in 1970. Italians, who have supplanted Ukrainians as Canada's fourth largest ethnic group, numbered 8,533 in 1970 immigration, compared with 10,383 in 1969.
