Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IETHBRIDGE HEKAID Tutlday, May 5, 1970 Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY, MAY 6 Your birthday today: Your logical estimate of the com- ing year's possibilities is not enough; you must look with faith and intuition for several levels of reality. Much that is now beyond your grasp will open to you in the months ahead. You have many chances to exempt yourself from old habits, redeem so- cial and material obligations. ARIES (March 21 April Express yourself with affirma- tive action, reach for what you want, put into use the plans you've worked up for the con- tingencies, fresh opportunities. TAURUS (April 20 May On one hand you find yoiir in- formation incomplete or mis- leading, so that somebody else's opinions are difficult to under- stand. GEMINI (May 21 June Double check anything that is not clear to you, or anything that doesn't strike you as con- sistent thus saving yourself a great deal of inconvenience. New ideas pop up later in the day. CANCER (June 21 July The more you explain, the more details you add, the more con- fused everybody gets. Keep it simple and to the point. On cer- tain matters postponement gives everybody time to get the story straight. LEO (July 23 Aug. Your attention is divided be- tween home or family interests and career building efforts. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Skepticism is in season. Any- body can be incorrect without intending deception. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Most of the day is taken up with puzzles over money and its distribution. Take your time and work it out carefully, then sketch the broad outlines of your future enterprises. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Find a different slant, take a good long look, but wait before you act on an old problem. Take a leisurely paced time of thor- ough exploration. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. Friends and loved ones bring in differences of view- point bear with the confu- sion; find helpful features and some way of applying them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Friends present whimsical ideas _ perhaps even a practi- cal joke think before react- ing. Your creative enterprises attract sudden energy and in- trigue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. You are led by peculiar circumstances to try a nove. approach. Travel, to get a fresh viewpoint or a moment of ab- stract thought, if you can find no other reason. PISCES (Feb. 1 9- March There is no figuring out why people hold the views they have. Simply take things as they are, at face value, and go ahead until somebody offers a better explanation. 1870, Newsday, Inc. Q For a long my son and I have had dry skin. Could it be caused by soap or some yitamin deficiency? What do you advise? A Dry skin is usually more of a problem in winter than in summer, especially in persons who fail to humidify the indoor air in cold weather. You should 3 a t h e .in lukewarm (not hot) water and use very little soap. Bathing twice a week rather than daily will help and, in- stead of rubbing yourself dry, use your towel to pat or fan yourself dry. A very thin coat of cold cream before retiring will help to prevent dryness. Vitamins A and B are essential for a healthy skin but it is doubtful that your dry skin is caused by a deficiency of these vitamins. Q am a man, 21. I can t get a close shave. I've tried dif- ferent kinds of blades and an electric shaver. When I shave, my skin gets red and flaky and hurts. What do you suggest? A may have sebor- rheic dermatitis. Since _ an electric shaver will not irritate your skin, use it two or three times a day if necessary. Ap- ply methasone valerate (Vali- sone) cream to the reddened areas once or twice a day and use a dandruff removing sham- poo two or three times a week. Q a cream that contains ammoniated mercury and natural estrogen be harm- ful to my skin? Rejection Serum Tests Await Final Clearance OTTAWA (CP) Satisfying Canadian health laws is remaining step before national trials begin on a serum which may help control the body's rejection of transplanted or- gans. Dr. H. E. Taylor of the Medi- cal Research Council said Mon- day he hopes this final step can be taken by the end of this month, clearing the way for a start on the trials in 11 hospitals from coast to coast. Testing at two Canadian and two foreign centres b'as estab- lished that the anti-lymphocyte serum to be used in the national trials is capable of suppressing the living organism's natural immunity. This is the mechanism which kills transplanted tissue and or- gans such' as kidneys and hearts. The serum was tested on monkeys and chimpanzees at Oonnaught Laboratories, T c- ronto; Montreal Institut de Mi- crobioloeie: at the Bethesda pri- mate centre in Maryland; and the Radiobiological Institute, Organization of Health He- New Voters Target Of P.E.I. Parties CHAELOTTETOWN (CP) Coffee houses and youth rallies with the raucous music of local rock bands form part of the campaign the two major parties have been running to attract the votes of new, young voters New Identity- Card Going Over Big MONTREAL (CP) -An identity card, combining per- sonal data with a dose of Cana. dian pride, has been selling like hot pizza since being put on the market hi the Montreal area by an Italian-Canadian three weeks ago. The brainchild of Joe Russo, 24, the ?2 card gives the social security number, birth date, blood type, address and signa- ture of the bearer and pro- claims "proud to be a Cana- dian" and "fier d'etre Cana- dien." Mr. Russo, an air traffic, con- troller at Montreal International Airport, sold the idea of the card to his brothers-in-law Terry, Fred and Frank Evan- sben about two months ago. "I was born in Italy but came here at a very early Mr. RUSEO says. "When people asked me what my nationality was, I said Ital- ian. But I felt Canadian and re- alized I really was a Canadian, not an Italian-Canadian, or Bri- tish-Canadian, or whatever." Fred Evanshen explains the purpose of the card is to remind Canadians all over the country "that they are Canadians." Brother Frank says that of "at least cards" sold in the Montreal area, 40 per cent were bought by Canadians of French origin. Any money left over in the non-profit Canada N e w b u i 1 d Corp. will be used to promote the project as well as "any idea to further Canadianism" such as a pro-Canada rally or discus- sion session. Promotion of the card wil eventually be expanded to the rest of Canada. m the May 11 Prince Edward sland election. The new of whom reached age 21 since the ast election, plus those added to the electoral list by a 1967 bill owering the voting age to 18- may be the deciding factor in he election. Premier Alex Campbell, 36- year-old Liberal leader, told a news conference after dissolv- ing the legislature March 26 hat the new voters would prob- ably be the force to put his jarty back in power with an in- Teased'majority. Politics has been taken so se- riously in this rural province of that one bromide states he Island version of a mixed marriage is a Conservative and Liberal. PATTERNS CHANGE But Progressive Conservative Leader George Key said in an interview young voters will make up their own minds, not necessarily following the voting patterns of their parents. "We're living in a different age than we were a few years he says. The 39-year-old Conservative chief said that attracting votes is not the only reason his party holds youth rallies. "I don't like' to think we're doing this to wrangle their vote. We're trying to do this to avert getting into situations like, we've seen in other areas." He said one of the planks in his arty platform is to set up a youth department "so that they will have a voice." The new voters ring to the number eligible to vote in the election. When the election was called, house standings were Liberals 16 and Conserva- tives 15, with one Independent Liberal. The campaign to date has been comparatively dull by Is land standards, with both par- ties relying mainly on personal canvassing of voters' homes. ODD NAME BULAWAYO, Rhodesia (AP) The name of the man ar rested on a charge of burglary added color to the order shee in magistrate's court. The name: Zephyr Psychedelic Chunky Charlie. earch, The Netherlands. Dr. Taylor said the federal ood and'drug directorate now must be satisfied that the serum s non-toxic. This means admin- stering it to animals, mostly monkeys and chimpanzees, for about a 30-day period. ALS, sometimes called anti- ymphocyte globulin, has. been used in various forms in heart, ddney and other transplants for everal years. Medical opinion about its usefulness in prolong- ing transplant "life" is sharply divided. The aim 'of the national trials, first of their kind in the world, s to see whether it prolongs ransplant life and whether it essens some of the complica- ions experienced by patients rom heavy doses of drugs which also are used to suppress tissue rejection. .One hundred transplant pa- ients will get daily doses for 3( days, the crucial period for a ransplant to "take" or be re- ected. Participating hospitals ire in Halifax, Montreal, Ot- :awa, Kingston, Toronto, .Hamil- ;on, London, Winnipeg, Saska- ;oon, Edmonton and Vancouver. THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Humidify Indoor Air To Help Avoid Dry Skin By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspivper Enterprises Assn. A Ammoniated merc- uy is a mild antiseptic. The lOrtnone cream will not re- flove winkles and it is not likely that enough will be ab- sorbed to cause any rejuvenat- ing effects, but it is harmless.

If it doesn't shrink in a month or so and if it's that important to you, your best bet is to consult a plastic surgeon. Q am a Negro woman, 22.

The only way to remove them is to nave a skin graft Patient Returns To Job MONTREAL (CP) John Parkinson, 54, returned to work Monday a "clean bill of health" and a heart that has functioned well since it was transplanted 18 months ago. Canada's longest-surviving transplant patient said-he will be "outside" as much as possi- ble, calling on clients and doing promotion and market studies. Mr. Parkinson is a sales man- ager with a rubber company. "Not behind a he said of his return to work. "I think that would kill me." A team of surgeons at Notre Dame Hospital here performed the transplant operation Nov. 3, 1968, and Dr. Anthony Dobel later explained that Mr. Parkin- son was unique in that he also had a permanent pacemaker implanted post-operatively. Describing himself as a "posi- tive thinker, a kind of a happy- go-lucky Mi1. Parkinsoi said he goes the equivalent a four or five miles daily on his home exercycle. "The longer I live the more I think, this fantastic.' "I might really turn out to be of some value to the human race. As far as I'm concerned I've got this thing licked."

Chic Yonng GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN IB intl H Qiao TlMKl Both vulnerable. Sontb .teals. NORTH W10S74Z OK54Z Void EAST AJSC Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Queen nt Failure by West to find the tilling tramp opening, pro- vided South with an oppor- tunity 1o salvage his am- bitious slam contract in i Leads. North's raise to four hearts announces a n unbalanced land containing five tramps bt less than 10 high card points. It was not reasonable tor South to expect his partner to tie able to take care of enough of his losers in the side suits and he should hove been content to settle 'for game. West opened Ibe queen clubs which was ruHed in dummy. South observed that he had a certain loser in tramps and' neither the dia- mond or spade holding pro- Tided assurance of avoiding loss of another trick. It appeared that declarer's only hope hinged on compelling the opposition to open up one of the side suits for him. A heart was led to the ace at trick two as both op- ponents followed suit. South now made the key play of Ihe deal by playing the ace at dubs and ruffing his good trick In prefer- ence to taking a discard. A second round of tramps ad- dled West with the lead. If West returned either a spade or a diamond, it wooH not only result in the sur- render of the defenses' trick in tat wit, it wnfld enable Sontb to establish a "13er" for the discard of his remaining loser. The return of a small spade, for example, would compel East s to put op the jack in order to force out declarer's act. Snath can now return the ten thru West and take a success- ful finesse against the latter's queen. When the suit divides evenly, North's long card in spades provides a discard lac declarer in diamonds. If West shifts to a dub when lie is in, South, throws either a diamond or a spade from his hand while IK raffs in dummy. He then cashes the top honors in the suit from which he has discarded, ruffs the third round and shuts bis remaining loser on the long card of the suit he has just established. Observe that if South faus to ruff the ace of clubs, choosing instead to shed either a spade or diamond from dummy, West can defeat the contract by merely exiting in the suit from which North had discarded. De- clarer has no long card to establish and must eventually lose a trick in the other side suit. Bad West led the of hearts originally, it would have deprived Sooth of the reentry to his hand required to ruff out the second club. In order to trump both clubs, he must open up one of the side suits pro- viding West with a safe means of exit when he is- thrown in WOULD ANYONE StEEP HIS FIN6ERS CROSSED 11 CAMPUS Larry Uwii YOU BSUBEO THE ESTIMATE, MBtOIWeRS- IT'S HOUR BKETLE Mort Walker U'L ABNEH-By Al Capp HUSBAND" Bob Montana YOU SAID X MADE A HWESOMEJ LITTLE OFMYOWN WHOLE-WHEATlAT HOME.'
