Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HIRALD Monday, May 28, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANi DIXON TUESDAY, MAY 29 Your birthday today: Brings in the closing phases of preparation that directs you toward your life goals. You put aside needless bur- dens this year. Relationships are easy. Today's natives have wanderlust, con- slant interest in people from distant places. ARIES (March 21-Apiil Adept an easy schedule theie aie extras to fill all gaps. Budgets and reserve funds need conservative revisions. Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents to Jenny Marie Eskew, age 11, of Wheeling, W. Virginia, for her question: How do bees hum? Very early in the spring, the bees from 'a neighbor's hives hum softly among Andy's al- mond trees. Later they arrive right on time to buzz through the apricot blossoms, next they take a turn through the fra- grant pink apple blossoms. Then the papery white pear blossoms are open and ready to welcome the buzzing bees. Na- turally they are busy collecting sweet nectars and dusty gold- en pollens. They pay for these groceries by fertilizing the flow- ers so that nuts and fruits can mature through the summer. The Mariner space probes pack an amazing amount of sophisticated equipment into a very small package. But they cannot compare with the small miracle we know as an ordin- ary bee. She is a living miracle of biological equipment, guar- anteed to work with accuracy at high speed in many dif- ferent situations. Her soft sweet mi This is possible because they work together with remarkable precision. The two wings on each side are designed to work as one, in perfect harmony with the two on the opposite side. Though they can be separated for cleaning purposes and when the bee stands or walks, they are linked together in flight. The inside edges, between the two wings on each side, have a built-in locking system. Each front wing has a series of little hooks and each back wing has a series of tiny grooves. YrTien the bee takes to the air, the two wings on each side are in- terlocked and beat as one. And they beat at top speed in per- fect harmony, usually about 400 times a second. This speedy action is much too fast for our eyes to follow, especially when the tiny beat- ers are made of almost trans- parent material. All we see is a hazy blue. But the tiny wings whip up tiny air currents which create the gentle hum we hear when the bees are busy in the garden. A bee can fly forward or backward or hover like a fairy helicopter. When visiting from Rawer to flower, she usually humming sound is a sort of by-' flies in figures of eight. But product of wings. her speedy little A furry little bee has four gauzy wings, two attached to each shoulder. If all four of them were separated and spread flat, they would hardly cover one of your fingernails. Their thin gauzy material is reinforced with networks of de- licate veins, but those little bee wings look far too fragile for heavy duty. But this is not so. for they can beat fast enough to create a hum somewhat like a miniature electric fan. often she flies a straight course from the hive to the flowers. And when her tummy is full of nectar and her baskets are full of pollen, she always flies a straight bee-line home to the hive. Her top speed is about 12 miles an hour with 400 whir- ring wmgbeats to the second. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.

Three Trau enough, bigger things are Jn sight and on the surface this might ap- pear to be an underbid, but thera should no hurry. Since you are making a free rebid in the) face of partner's free response, there is not the remotest danger that the bidding will drop.

I have been using safflower oil for frying and now I read an article in a magazine strong- ly condemning the use of it. What. then, may we safely use for frying? Butter and kin- dred products have cholesterol and change into products, when heated to high temperatures, which are cancer causing. I like my fried potato cakes and such and I hate to give them up.

There is a lot of misinforma- tion of the type that you have read available in health maga- zines for the public.

In a statement in reference to this same question, Dr. Kuo of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia states that the idea that heat- ing poljunsaturated fats and oils resaturates the fat or oil "is not supported by observa- tions made on the influence of heating on the composition of edible fats. The chemical effect of heating is a hydrolysis Generally, little increase in fat- ty acid titer -was noted until after an hour of heating." The gist of this is that your source is incorrect. Hydrolysis means that a molecule of water is absorbed into the total fat particle, but jou will not have any major amount of conver- sion of polyunsaturated fats to saturated fats. Also in this same quote. Dr. Kuo pointed out that there was no evidence that us- ing even refried fats produced dietary carcinogens or sub- stances that cause cancer. In short, I think the article you read has done more harm than good. There Is abaundant evidence that there are no problems im- posed by using safflower oil or other polyunsaturated oils for cooking within the reasonable Today in history United States recovered two monkeys ahve from the sea after a 1.700-mife flight in the nose cone of a Jupiter rocket.

SEE THE LI'L ABNER-By Andy Capp have been published in the first place. Dear Dr. Lamb I wish you would settle an argument I have with some of my friends. What I would like to know is when reading a fever thermo- meter, is 98 C, which is consid- ered normal, up to the arrow or is it two lines past the ar- row? I say it is two lines past the arrow. Dear Reader On most clin- ical thermometers the arrow is pointed to the 98.6 mark. The next long mark two spaces' above the arrow is for 99 de- grees. Note that the longest mark is for the degree marks such as 98. 99, or 100 and only in the instances of 93 6 is there an additional long mark placed on the scale.
