Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta It - THE UTHBRIDOI HIRAID - Monday, March 39, 1971 Your horoscope By Jean� Dixon TUESDAY, MARCH 30 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: Your trend now is toward over-expansion and extravagance, while you encounter increasing responsibility and opportunity for more authority. Find a balance and stick to it. Today's natives, by expressing themselves, can win fulfilment of strong ambitions thru their friends' cooperation. ARIES (March 21-April M): Round up funds, collect whatever is owed you, put as much as you can into reserves or savings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Temptation is toward hasty action. Find a middle course and stay with it. Your knowledge of others is subtly tested. GEMINI (May 21-Jane 20): Life has an added social-whirl quality now; meet everybody half-way in all good faith. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Act promptly to consolidate your advantages. Convert whatever you can into useful form while circumstances permit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make this a feast day, at least in spirit, leaving compensatory economy to a later date. Idealistic projects turn out to be costly in time, energy, resources. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Firm outlines of reality come to the surface, perhaps as legal issues. Your field of action narrows to sharp yes-or-no choices. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Exploit the general drift of advantage in your direction. Set something aside for later, more expansive uses. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Sheet metal workers ask about fumes Dear Dr. Lamb - We are members of the sheet metal local and would like to ask some questions. We all work in an enclosed shop where a fork lift causes fumes and smoke comes from the spray and paint booth. These fumes are causing the men to become nauseated, sleepy, have head-acnes and also eye-burning. The fork lift uses regular gas and is used to unload heavy trucks and for other duties. Can carbon monoxide and paint fumes cause these symptoms? Is 25 per cent carbon monoxide dangerous? And is 50 per cent dangerous in an enclosed building? Can you please tell us what per cent carbon monoxide is dangerous where the ventilation is very poor? Dear Reader - Carbon monoxide is a dangerous poison. It combines with the iron pigment, hemoglobin, in the red blood cell, and prevents transport of life  giving oxygen to the body. In many respects it has the effects of very high altitude or advanced anemia. In extreme cases a person dies from lack of o x y g e n to his brain and other vital tissues. This is how carbon monoxide causes loss of consciousness and death. A little bit of carbon monoxide in the blood does not cause death and, like losing a little bit of blood or a mild anemia, may cause no symptoms. Or. depriving the body of oxygen, carbon monoxide can cause vomiting, headaches, excessive sweating, dizziness, faintness and eventually collapse. A common source for carbon monoxide is the gasoline internal combustion engine, which I assume is what you are describing as the fork lift. How dangerous the carbon monoxide is depends on both the size of the engine and the closed space. The important measurement is the actual Bridge Results Ladies Wid. Club, March IS N.S. 1. Mrs. L. A.

All new, players are welcome. concentration of carbon monoxide in the air. If the air has 1 per cent carbon monoxide, half of the hemoglobin in the body will be bound within 15 minutes. In less than half an hour it can be fatal. This is far below the figures you have quoted, but they apply to the room air that the men breathe and not the exhaust from the engine. The only way to check this problem is to measure the carbon monoxide content in the air. If 20 per cent or more of the blood is combined with carbon monoxide, it will usually cause symptoms and 80 per cent is usually fatal. Incidentally, those men who smoke cigarettes could significantly decrease the amount of carbon monoxide they are getting in their Kings if they stopped smoking. A heavy cigarette smoker has 10 per cent of the hemoglobin in his blood stream combined with carbon monoxide from the cigarette. Regarding the paint spray, it depends on what is in the paint. Some people are allergic to certain fumes of paint. If aniline dyes are present in any of the work, it can also combine with the hemoglobin in the blood stream and contribute to the problem. Apollo 14 rocks may bo oldest HOUSTON (AP) - Rocks gathered by the Apollo 14 astronauts may be older than any others brought to earth from the moon, scientists report. And they're certainly more complicated and differ in other ways from the lunar samples of Apollo 11 and 12, Dr. Robin Brett, chief of geochemistry at the Manned Spacecraft Centre told reporters here. "The chances of finding 4.6 billion-year-old material among the samples appear to be very good," said Dr. Paul Gast, chief of planetary sciences at the centre. Experts believe a rock that ancient would date back to the formation of the moon-possibly of the solar system.
