Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2.6 THE lETKaRIDOt HKAtB Friday, May 1970 Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, MAY 9 Your birthday today: The year ahead is one o[ exten- sion and improvement oi your potentials. Opportunities will come abruptly and when you least expect them, so it's best to begin work at once on self-improvement programs: deeper u n d e r s landing of whatever your present work involves, new skills, and some preparation for pos- sible moves into special ac- tivities. ARIES (March 21 April Take the day as it comes, with- out binding contracts or prom- ises. Your patience could wear thin just for the few moments it takes to spoil something nice. TAURUS (April 20 May Everything is going for you. People you think you know sur- prise you with sudden actions. GEMINI (May 21 June Give others a chance to experi- m e n t and to express them- selves. You learn more that way. CANCER (June 21 July Older friends are quite helpful, but you must do something in return. A conservative ap- proach, with an eye to the fu- ture, shows an almost immedi- ate profit. LEO (July 23 to Aug. Keep on quietly putting your ideas together. You can't have your way about everything, as somewhere along the way somebody is going to object to whatever is happening. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Promises are all too easy to make and to break today; don't accept any commit- LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. That sudden impulse to dis- offer or ment. card something may not be such a bad thing; do it with zest and style. Relationships are fragile and require much understanding. You provoke people to think and change. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Nobody agrees with you, and it may be nothing more than the need to do their own thinking or the way you present your schemes. Wait until asked and you have a better chance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Today you talk faster than you think, and may thereby land yourself in some confu- sion or embarrassment. Be cognizant of what you are about in competitive situations. Pastimes, sports hold your at- tention in the latter part of the day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. It seems to you that things are not well enough organized, but this is partly your own clear ability to see what might be done. People are not likely to share much of your view- point; wait until they see things for themselves. AQUARIUS (J a n. 20 Feb. The search for pleasure should not be allowed to over- shadow the search for truth and a better way. The tendency is for all around you to be tempt- ed to play both ends against the middle. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Pull back a little from inti- mate, continuing involvement with people and spend today alone with your thoughts and creative planning. Sketch in the future with broad stokes and a spirit of adventure. The evening returns to normal and much good fun. 1970, Ncwsday, Inc. Q I lead a very sedentary life. Sometimes I waken dur- ng the night and am unable to ;o back to sleep because I ;an't bear tn remain in the same position for more than a ew seconds. What causes this and what can I do for it? A This type of restless- ness affects everyone at times, t is caused by nervous tension. Witness Woman Within Rights TORONTO (CP) A Toronto lawyer says a Jehovah's Wit- ness woman was within her rights in removing her new-born baby from Kingston General Hospital April 2. Glen How, general counsel for the Jehovah's Witnesses in Can- ada, said the "violent effort of the doctor to stop her and her friends was quite outside bis au- thority." Mr. How, In an article pub- lished in The Star yesterday, was commenting on the re- moval of the baby by Lynn DeWaal of Smiths Falls, Ont., to prevent the child from having a blood transfusion. He said the baby, named Eun- ice Devina, has made a full re- covery, is active and weighs 10 pounds. "A hospital is supposed to be an institution for healing, not a he wrote. "A doctor-pa- tient relationship is a contract. The patient can terminate the contract." He said Mrs. DeWaal and her friends who removed the baby at a.m. used force only "to resist the effort (by doctors and nurses) to prevent then" lawful departure." Mr. How said the baby was given phototherapy to correct a blood incompatibility which de- veloped about 12 hours after birth. He said phototherapy is used by many hospitals instead of blood transfusions. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 5th St. S. Ph. 328-7684 Above Capitol Furniture EDDY DIETRICH, C.D.M. In the article, Mr. How said Mrs. DeWaal left the Smiths Falls Hospital on the night of April 1 to appear in court to ob- tain a divorce. The Smiths Falls Hospital, where the baby was born, agreed not to move the child. But, he said, when the woman returned to the hospital she found the infant had been taken to Kingston General Haspital and placed under the care of Dr. D. J. Delahaye. Mr. How said Mrs. DeWaal and friends then went to Kings- ton to retrieve the child. He suggests "the establish- ment" went into a "flap" about nothing. Mrs. DeWaal had every right to remove the baby, .Mr. How said, and 'its removal should not be termed an "ab- duction." Mr. How also criticized doe- tors for their "dire predictions" that thte baby would die or suf- fer brain damage without a blood transfusion. He said Mrs. DeWaal simply wanted to choose her own doc- tor, one who would give the baby phototherapy instead of an exchange transfusion which "can kill the baby in up to 10 per cent of CUBA EXPORTS NICKEL MIAMI (AP) Nickel has re- placed tobacco as Cuba's second biggest export commodity, the Cuban exile news agency, AIP, reported Thursday.

BIUNDSTADT, Written for Enterprises Assn. Government Takes Over Company KAMPALA (CP) The gov- ernment of Uganda has .an- nounced plans to take over con- ,rol of scores of businessesy in- cluding a Canadian-owned min- ng company that is the coun- ry's only copper producer and .eadihg exporter. President Milton Obote said in a May Day address that the government will take over a 60- 5er-cent share of Kilembe Mine, aunched in 1953 primarily bv Falconbridge Mining Corp. of 'anada. Obote's announcement also said the government will take control of scores of manufactur- n g companies, plantations, ranks and transportation com- panies. Alfred E. Pugsley, who has run the Kilembe Mines since it was formed by Falconbridge, Commonwealth Development Corp. and the state-owned Uganda Development Corp., and General Manager Michael Cruikshank said in interviews they had no advance of the government move. TARGET TOO TEMPTING However, they added that they had always realized that the prosperous mine was a tempting target for the govern- ment. The mine, In the foothills of the Euwenzorf moun- tain range in western Uganda, contributed about to Uganda's income from exports, the largest single export earner in the country. The mine employs about men, mostly from Uganda, The Congo and Rwanda, with a small nucleus of Canadian and British exports. Some persons are helped by getting up and engaging in physical exercise until they we tired or by drinking a glass of warm milk. But the best treat- ment is to master art of progressive relaxation. Q Just as I drift olf to sleep, I am sometimes waken- ed by a violent jerking. Is there any cure for this? A This is a common ac- companiment of nervous fati- gue and increased tension. It calls for a calmer my of life, and an earlier hour for retiring. Q My husband snores re- gardless of which side he sleeps on. Is there any treat- ment that will stop this? A Since snoring may have various causes, your husband should be examined to see whether he has a correctable such as enlarged ton- sils or adenoids, nasal obstruc- tion, a swollen uvula, sleeping without removing poorly fitted dentures or excessive smoking or drinking. Over 30O patents have been granted for snore-- slopping devices. A chin har- ness often helps snorcrs who sleep with their mouths open and sewing a golf ball or col- lapsible rubber squeak ball on the back of the pajamas will help those who snore loudest when lying on their backs. Perhaps you should get your- self a pair of ear phigs since it is you, not your husband who is the real sufferer. Q What determines the sex of a child? I have heard that if a woman conceives when she has her climax be- fore her husband it will surely be a girl. A In spite of many old wives' tales, there is a 50-50 chance of having a boy in any given pregnancy. The sex de- terminers are carried only in the sperms, 'half of -which carry male and half female deter- miners. Try flipping a coin 100 times and keep track of the se- quence of heads or tails. The totals will be nearly equal buf you may be surprised tow many consecutive tosses are heads and how many are tails.

NORTH AK7 OS53 WEST EAST AJ832 AAQ104 UKJUtZ SOOTH VI OAJJT AKH1J the bidding: East Smith West North 1W Pass Pass Pass FMS Piss Opening lead: Four of V The major disadvantage to learning percentages and the proper- handling of card com- binations from the books, is ttat -the subject cannot properly be separated from the conditions which confront the player in practice, South's today's hand provides an excellent case in point. West opened the four ot hearts" against flic five club contract, and the ace was played from dummy. Trumps were drawn in two rounds ending up in the North hand and a small diamond' was led. East followed with the deuce he saw no reason to alert declarer to his holding in the suit by splitting his honors and .South played the nine. West was in with the ten of diamonds and lie shifted to a spade thru ihe dummy's king-seven. After mopping up two tricks in that wit. East waited to score another dia- mond trick, putting declarer t down by two. Altho Souft's play ot the nine of diamonds Irom nil hand was technically correct wins whenever East bad the king-ten or the queen- ten and loses only when East has specifically the Hog- queen his strategy could not expect to succeed fa the present instance. Even if the nine of diamonds forces out a high honor from West, the latter is almost certain to make the spade shift thru North's king that will net the defense two more tricks, la other words, ranca East's opening bid narks him (with the ace of spades, "South must exert every effort to keep his partner out of the lead to protect dummy's spade holding Irom fatal ettack. The only hope for I declarer then, is to ihxi East {.with both the king and queen I of diamonds, and the jroper i'play by South then is the I jack. Once the jack of diamonds wins Use trick, declarer con- tinues with the ace and another diamond clearing the suit. When he regains the lead, a spade can be dis- carded from dummy the 13th diamond. One spade is conceded to the opposition and South's remaining spades are ruffed away. A CANADIAN AT DIOR'S Every woman wonden how a lop designer sees her.
