Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta - THI LITHBRIDOI NIRAID - Thursday, March 23, 1971 Your horoscope By Jean* Dixon FRIDAY, MARCH 29 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: It is everybody to his own taste this year; for some of today's natives an interesting period of fortunate adventure, speculation, others a mild detour into superficial projects, and for still others a time for learning how to get along with other people in peace and dignity. Today's natives are good- at classification, comparisons, using sharp or precise instru- ments. Many have prospered as naturalists, scientists. ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Special arrangements for older persons are to be taken in stride and good spirits. If not this, then some other complication gives you a chance to show your co-operative capacity. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Striving for superiority is to be done very subtly or not at all; keeping your dignify may be enough achievement. GEMINI (May 21  June 20): LAWRENCE E. LAMB* M. D. Brink milk without raising fat intake Dear Dr. Lamb - I have twin boys, 17 years old. They have both enjoyed milk since birth. Could milk bring on a heart attack? Their dad and grandfather both died of heart attacks. Would it be better to give them 2 per cent milk? Dear Reader - Milk is not the perfect food. The truth is, man originally was not a milk-drinking animal. In the development of the human body over thousands of years, it was only after animals were domesticated that irilking began. Before that, man used milk only during infancy. Much of the world today still does not use milk in adult life and when they do, they develop indigestion, including diarrhea. These individuals lack the infantile enzyme system necessary for the metabolism of the lactrose. The real problem with milk in our society is that it is just one more source of too much fat in the diet. I approve of using milk and it is useful as aa source of calcium to help prevent degeneration of the spine. But you can have milk without increasing the fat intake in your diet. Parts of the dairy industry have made a real effort to try to improve their product so it is more in line with the concepts of preventing heart and vascular disease; These are the low - fat milk products, which are excellent. You are correct in thinking that 2 per cent milk would be better than using whole milk (1 per cent is better). The nonfat dry milk powder also is excellent, particularly for cooking. It provides all the protein, calcium and other nutrients of milk without increasing the fat intake. Uncrearned cottage cheese is also as excellent source of protein. I think you are very wise to consider this problem now with the strong family history of of heart disease suggested by your letter. The best time to begin is now and not at middle age when a lot of damage has already occurred. Hormone discovery WASHINGTON (AP) - First isolation in pure form of an elusive and potentially important hormone that stimulates red blood cell formation has been achieved by a team of Chicago researchers supported by the United States Atomic Energy Commission. The commission said the achievement "is potentially very important to kidney disease patients," but that the substance now is so scarce, expensive and hard to make New liaison office plan announced EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta is going to set up an intergovernmental affairs office to improve liaison between the provincial government and Ottawa, Premier Harry Strom said in the legislature. He told Len Werry (PC - Calgary Bowness) who questioned an $85,300 appropriation for fees and commissions in the premier's office for the 1971-72 fiscal year, the money will be spent on establishing the office. It primarily will be an information and research centre. It will provide the essential background information Alberta cabinet ministers need when they discuss programs with the federal government. Mr. Strom said the office could also provide some co-ordination on an interprovincial basis and in dealings with other countries, although Alberta always worked through the federal departments of extern-nal affairs and trade and commerce when it had discussions with foreign nations. At least one member of the inter - governmental affairs staff will be stationed permanently in Ottawa. I The Friendly Staff MARTENS COALDALE Invite you to Economize on Quality Foods: PURITY FLOUR 2099*! limif 1 per customer on FRIDAY! that "it will be a long itme before there is enough available for all who need it." Estimated present cost to treat a patient with the subsance is $15,000. However, the AEC said now that the material has been isolated in p u r e form-from the blood of anemic sheep-it may be possible to determine its exact chemical stsucture and ultimately produce it synthetically. The hormone is called "erythropoietin." It is potentially important for treating kidney disease victims because ' such patients do not produce the hormone ant suffer severe anemia. "The frequent transfusions which they require increase the risk of hepatitis and of a buildup of iron in the system," the announcement said. "If it were possible to treat them with pure erythropoietin, they might be a b 1 e to lead a relatively normal life, much like a diabetic patient taking insulin. . . ." The AEC said isolation of the hormone was made by Dr. Eu-bene Goldwasser, University of Chicago biochemist, and researcher Charles Kung, senior scientist at the AEC's Argonne Cancer Research Hospital near Chicago. Super prize 'just joke' By THE CANADIAN PRESS A 55-year-old refinery worker from Gillespie, HI., won the �200,000 ($480,000) super prize in the Irish sweepstakes draw Wednesday in Dublin and thought at first it was a practical joke. Albert Kocis, a clerk at the Shell Oil Co. refinery in Wood River, 111. said the first word of his prize came in a phono call at 3 a.m. from Dublin. "I thought it was somebody pulling a practical joke, Kocis said. "I just laughed and went back to bed. The super prize is the second awarded in the sweeps. Three months ago a Canadian housewife won it. The prize is awarded to the first ticket drawn from the drum. Other lucky holders of tickets on horses entered in the Lincolnshire Handicap on which the sweeps is based will have to wait until Saturday to determine whether they won the other big prizes. Among the 34 entries still in the race at Doncaster, Mon Plaiser at 7 to 1 is the favorite, with Brother Scot second favorite at 10 to 1 and Tandy third at 14 to 1. Get up and out early to make a vigorous beginning on any new venture. Once started, things open up, yield better results than expected, but you must keep working at it. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): your success tomorrow depends on keeping up a steady pace, avoiding excess and fatigue. LEO (July 23  Aug. 22): You now have one of those inevitable encounters with diligent work, perhaps considerable technical or physical difficulty. VIRGO (Ang. 23 - Sept. 22): Old habits, settled customs aire left behnid in the whirl of changes. You probably find yourself in unaccustomed situations, doing things beyond your early training. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Today promises special, subtle personal liberation. What you felt and thought yesterday are just that, much different from what is yet coming. SCORPtO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Keeping things within the grasp of those who should co-operate becomes harder to do and much more commendable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your mood resists change, most of it inevitable or necessary, but something has to give or break. You make a choice. CAPRICORN (Dee. 22 - Jan. 19): Diversion of attention is normal today: make notes of side issues, personal projects that open for later exploration. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Diligence begun promptly and continued relentlessly thru the day brings you much needed results, a spit from which to pause a bit and survey your plans. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): Both formal and unplanned activities present adventure and a sense of achievement. Your family and most of the local community is still alive and stirring with interesting doings. Octopus eggs Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Kathy Schin-ner, age 11, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for her question: Do all octopuses lay eggs? The octopus is Tull of fascinating surprises. There seems to be no reason to fabricate false tales to make him interesting. But people do. For example, one weird tale paints him as a vicious monster, lurking in the deep ocean while he gleefully plots human assassination. This horror tale is way out of character. Certainly a big octopus can cope with a deep-sea diver. And if scared or tormented, naturally he does bis mighty best to defend himself. But an octopus, even a giant one, tends to be a peaceful character who prefers hiding to fighting. * � * The large and small octopuses are mollusk animals. Their close cousins include the ten-armed squids, the inky cuttlefish and the papery-shelled nautilis. Other classes in the mollusk phylum are occupied by snails and slugs, oysters, mussels and other remote cousins. All the 80,000 known mol-lusks are soft-bodied creatures, with or without protective shells. And all of them lay eggs with large yolks that hatch into miniature copies of their parents. The 50 or so known species belong to the sea. The small types range in size from one inch to several inches. As a rule, they live quiet lives in shallow, sunlit shore waters. A giant octopus has an arm spread 28 feet wide. He prefers a secret life in and around dark, underwater caverns of the deep ocean. When hungry, he swims or tippy-toes forth to find some meaty food. True, he can and sometimes does use his eight mighty arms to defend himself. But his soft body has no protection against hun- gry foes and he tries to stay out of sight: All the octopus relatives come in two sexes and the fertilized eggs require cells from the male and tine female. The male produces a package of sperm cells in his neck funnel. He uses his third right arm to transfer this spermatophore into the mantle cavity of the female. An octopus cavity is a loose skin, with an opening around the neck. It expands and contracts to suppy oxygen-bearing waiter to the gills. In the female, it becomes a cozy cavity where the sperm cells an fertilized and the egg yolks are encased in gelatinous capsules, The female lays the eggs through her mouth or her funnel. They look like pale bunches of grapes, left to hatch in the sea. Those that survive become small copies of their parents. Octopus parents have no interest in family life. This is odd because they are quite intelligent - and as a rule, nature's intelligent animals devote their best efforts to tending and educating their children.  * * Sometimes a large octopus is captured and displayed in an aquarium. There we.can boggle at his most unusual shape and watch him moving around like a graceful dancer. We can see him change the color of his skin to match his moods. At feeding time we are astonished to see the weird-looking monster greet his keeper politely-proving that he is at least halfway tame.
