Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1973 THE IFTHBRIDGE HERAlD 17 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY, MAY 9 Your birthday today: It is easier to follow your individ- ual destiny now. Intuition leads as usual, but it isn't a substitute for diligence. To- day's natives are nimble and are often graceful dancers. ARIES (March 21 Bright ideas are plentiful but difficult to apply.

CANCER (June 21 July Family connections develop short circuits, better inrorma- Ths bowerbird Andy sends a complete 20- volurr-e set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Philip Grady, age 12, of Solon, Ohio, for his question: Is it true that a bowerbird builds a fancy nest? It is true that he is the bird world's master architect and home decorator. It is true that he uses his extraordinary ar- tistics talents to build a most fanciful residence, complete with a landscaped lawn._ How- ever, this masterpiece is not designed to be a nest for eggs or a nursery for grow in g chicks. The bowerbirds' beau- teous bower is a boudoir. Courtship in tho bird world is amazing or amusing, and always charming. In many spe- cies, t he irales dance and prance around and display their handsome plumage to attract the females. After these spec- tacular ceremonies, most of them become diligently devot- ed husbands and fathers. The bowerbirds, however, do not participate in family rou- tine perhaps because they are too exhausted. These artis- tic fellows pour their whole hearts into most elaborate courtships. They are gifted dancers, singers a nd clever mimics But their greatest tal- ents are expended in creating fantastically fancy bowers to attract the females. The 19 or so known species live in Australia and New Gui- nea, some of them in dense, nearly inaccessible jungles. Most of them resemble blue- jays with vivid patches or ruby red or peacock colors. Some wear feathery tufts that look like jaunty berets Each spe- ciees creates his own design for the lavish bower and landscap- ed lawn. A bower bird spends many months constructing and main- taining his work of art His bower is an elaborate chamber of twigs and foliage. He uses shells and shiny stones, berries and flowers to bedeck his whole place with eleabarate designs. He changes the flowers and re- arrange? the decor every day. After all, who knows when a lady bowerbird will saunter by? T he maypole bowerbird builds a teepee with twigs ground a slim sapling. The gol- den bowerbird builds a tower nine feet tall ar.d lines the rooms inside with mosses and lichens and floral arangements. Several species plaster the in- side walls of their boudoirs They use leaves or wads of bark to daub on blue or green- ish mud A few animals use work tools. But only the artis- tic bowerfcirds use paint brushes Often a group of males oc- cupy a forest glade. They eye the creations of their rivals and often snitch bits of firery from each other. When at last a ra- ther drab looking female ar- rives, the glace is a-twitter with excitement. Each m ale dances on his lawn, sings his serenade and perhaps mimics other btrdsorgs. Chances are. the critical female will choose a lover and enter his bower. Then she deserts him for a modest nest she makes for her- self. V The female goes off to build a modest nest, lay the eggs and raise the growing chicks. Mean- time the males keep their bow- ers in apple pie order, waiting for a visit from the next fe- this event is charged with ten- male. Observers report that sion. When one male is select- ed, his rivals register great despair. In one species, believe it or not, a rejected suitor has been known to fall down into a dead faint.

Is it pos- sible for the x-rays to have damaged the eggs left in my ovaries for future pregnancies7 Recently I read in your ar- ticle where you said a woman has all of her eggs or ova she'll ever have at birth, whereas a man produces new. fresh sperm cells each time. Now, I am really vvonied about my next pregnancy. I have been reading so much about x-rays being harmful Dear Reader Excessive radiation can cause problems with future pregnancies. The key word is excessive. We are all ex-posed to certain levels of radiation without it causing us any particular harm. The usual amount of radia- tion from, chest x-rays done properly, and studies used in medical diagnosis cause no to it. Once it has full length, it mil not grow any longer. This is as individual as "having blue eyes, eyes, large ears, small ears, a big nose or a small nose. There aic many tilings that people do to their hair which sometimes cause it to fall out more rapidly and might not allow it to stay en the head long enough to attain its full length. Our hair dicps fiom scalp just as leaves drop from the tiee. We are fortunate in that the hair drops a few at a time instead cf on a seasonal basis like northern troes do. In sense the human hair can consideied like live oaks that drop a few leaves all the time ard grow new ones all the time However, if vou aie dicpping the hair consistently too soon, why then it won't giow so lonq medical uiiayiiusAa uauoc nw i problems.

AJ tho South appears to be off four hearts, one diamond and one he managed to salvage Jus four spade contract by projecting a series of end- plays against one of the de- fenders. South opened the bidding with one spade and West ov- crcalled with two hearts. North made a jump raise to three spades, forcing to game. East was somewhat tempted to enter the auction, however the level of bidding as well as his singleton heart acted as an effective de- terrent. South, of course, proceeded to game m t led the king of hearts and when the dummy was put down, it appeared that the fate of the contract hinged on the fate of the club finesse, inasmuch as the declarer was off two lieart tricks -and one dia- on the face of it. When East followed to the opening lead, South concluded that he had a singleton heart, for West was not apt to overcall at the two level with any- thing less than five card suit. Declarer decided that he might obtain extra working room and thereby improve his chances somewhat by postponing the club finesse until he had first attacked nis opponents' line of com- munications. After winning the first trick with the ace of hearts, he drew two rounds of trumps ending up in the dummy. A diamond led next and East put up the ace, felling South s king. The suit was continued and declarer ruffed. A small club was led and dummy's queen was fi- nessed. East was in with the king and since a diamond return would obviously pre- sent declarer with a ruff and discard, East led back a club. North won the trick with the ten and cashed the see on which South discard- ed a heart. The remaining club was led from dummy, covered by East's eight, and declarer shed another heart, permitting his opponent to lead. This tune East had no es- cape. The forced return of cither a diamond or a club, permitted South to discard his last heart as the dummy ruffed. In all, he lost two dubs and one not a single heart trick. x-rays of the pelvis, particulai- ly if there is any question whether the pelvis will be big enough for normal birth.
