Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, 6, 1972 THt 1ETHMIDGE HHAIO Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, NOV. 7 Your blrtliday today: Dur- ing a season of spiritual de- velopment, material affairs contain so many contradicto- ry signs that your latent psychic talents are forced into stronger manifestations. Today's natives are sensitive to details, often work at technical arts for esthetic reasons rather than financial reward. ARIES (March 21-ApriI Sudden flaws shatter what seemed perfect, fn many areas there is very little choice. Family situations hit another cycle of tension. TAURUS (April 20-May What was certain yesterday appears different today. Wait until later for any seri- ous effort to express your views. Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS 'NOV. e, M72 U.S. President Roosevelt pledged billion worth of 1 e n d -1 e a s e aid to the U.S.S.R. 31 years ago today _jn first of a vast flood of supplies sent to aid the Soviet Unidn in her de- fence against Nazi Ger- many. Roosevelt insisted that the defence of the U.S.S.R. was essential to the defence of the United States. Suez cease-fire was ordered. terms on which Newfoundland would be- come part of Canada were announced. dictator Ben- ito Mussolini banned all op- position political parties, newspapers and public meetings. Lincoln was elected president of the United States. GEMINI (May 21 June Reading between the lines becomes a sport. For once, talking things over leads to more, rather than less, confu- sion. CANCER (June 21 July If you havent made up your mind long ago, today isn't the time to begin. You may as well let the morning's today pass you by. LEO (July 23 Aug. Let your thoughts range over creative possibilities; the morning is like an incom- plete stage play, the evening more coherent. VIIIGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Last minute appeals shouldn't be allowed to change your mind. The challenge is to see the broad picture rather than local details. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Now is the time for that good question you've been working up to asking. No immediate answer is complete or satisfac- tory. SCORPIO (Oct. 2.1 Nov. Take into account just what you know about people over long acquaintance. If you don't know their qualities, skepticism takes precedence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Act rather than talk; noth- ing should detour you from set- tled plans. The day improves as you catch up on routines and purchases. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Staying on familiar grounds doesn't work. Being aware that you may lack p e r s p e c live shouldn't keep you from new activities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Communications tend to delays, mischances. Keep things simple by deed and thought, leaving others to make their own choices. PISCES (Feb. ID-March It's a great day for wild sto ries and romance but not for normal business. Pay no atten lion to demands for drastic changes. 1972 By The Chicago Tribune POPULAR SPORT There are 112 golf cgurses within a 35-mile radius of To- ronto. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Underground water Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Chris- tin aKobryn, age H, of Phila- delphia, Pennsylvania, for her question: What arc the sources of under- ground water? On Old MacDonald's farm there is a well and if it goes deep enough it may dip down into groundwater. In New Eng- land, about 20 feet is usually deep enough. In the Southwest- ern deserts, it may be neces- sary to drill a well several hun- dred feet before reaching wa- ter if it is reached at and install a pump. But in just about every area in the world there is bound to be ground- water at some depth below the surface. This is where about 97 per cent of the earth's useable water is reserved in storage. Groundwater is a sort of de- pot in the global cycle that keeps the earth's supply of fresh water in constant motion. The enormous engine that runs it is powered by the sun and the earth's gravity, assisted by the seas and the ups and downs of the land's geography. The sun evaporates and hoists moisture from the surface into the atmosphere. The earth's gravity drags it down again as rain, snow and other forms of precipitation. It Is estimated that the planetary water cycle hoists and drops about cubic miles of fresh water during each and every year. Slopes and rocky surfaces lead a por- tion of the surface precipitation back to the seas and some of it evaporates back into the water cycle. The rest percolates more slowly through the under- ground depot. About cu- bic miles of water pause to moisten the world's soil. About a million cubic miles percolate within half a mile of the sur- face and an equal amount may seep through deeper levels. A little brackish water may seep underground along the shores. But the major sources of groundwater are fresh rains and melting snows. As gravity drags it through the ground, it usually dissolves various chem- icals from the rocks. The siurdy crust may seem too sol- id to hold all this water, but even its densest rocks contain tiny pores. Groundwater perco- lates fastest through coarse gravel ar.d more slowly through fine grains of sand. The thick crust is a jumble of different minerals, some ar- ranged in neat layers like rocky sandwiches. Some are in fragments, some in slabs tilted at odd angles. Layers of dense shale may delay the seeping groundwater or form barriers to trap it in pockets of more porous rocks. Here and there, rocky formations lead under- ground streams and springs back to the surface. Every- w h e r e, the groundwater is guided by buried crystal for- mations. It moves much slow- er than surface runoff, but it moves and eventually even its deepest supplies return to the surface and rejoin the neverending global water cycle. Meantime, all but about three per cent of our useable water is hidden underground. Here and there its reservoirs rise and fall with rainy and dry spells. A huge supply of good groundwater may be over- drawn, perhaps causing the earth above it to sink. An irri- gation project may draw up chemically saturated water and ruin large areas of farmland. T h i s is why countless hydrol- ogists are kept busy probing the hidden picture, tabbing the changing supplies available now, and estimating conserva- tion precautions for he future.

Is 16-year-old boy humpbacked? Dear Dr. Lamb I am 16 years old and very physically fit. About two years ago some- one made a remark about me being "humpbacked." The idea was totally new to me. Later I was told by others also that I was humpbacked. I was also told to hold up my shoulders and I soon discovered that I was in fact humpbacked. The hump had developed I think from the shoulders slumping. It is situated a little below my shoulder blade. It isn't noticeable when I wear a shirt, but without a shirt the hump is fairly obvious. It seems like, since I am young, the prob- lem could be corrected with the right treatment. Is there anything I can c'o to straighten my back? Dear Reader It is difficult to say how much can be done without knowing how much of a deformity you really have. Your letter suggesls to me Uiat it is not a very marked de- formity, if it can't be noticed when your shirt is on. As im- portant as it is to you, I doubt very much that it makes a dif- ference to anybody else. Some- times people fix their attention on a minor defect of the body and exaggerate its importance. Practically no one has a completely normal, symmetri- cal boc'iy. You may be surprised lo know that almost everybody has vi least a little shorten- ing of one leg. There is a ten- dency for one half of the body lo be slightly larger than the other half. Take a look at some of your friends' photographs hat are taken face on and cov- er up the right half with a sheet of paper and look at (he left side of the body. Now reverse be procedure and you will see hat many people look entirely different on the right and left half of their body. I wish you would see an or- thopedic specialist and let him look at the amount of curva- ture you have and see If it is really something that you should concern yourself about or not. As far as your rounded shoul- ders are concerned, this sug- gests poor posture habits. You could do quite a bit for this fay becoming more conscious about holding your shoulders back. You could also take a series of exercises to strengthen the muscles between your shoulfer blades. Since your letter sug- gests you are athletically in- clined this would be a good program for you. You can use pulley weights in a gymnasi- um to weight your arms and then swing your arms backward or rotate them in a backward circle using the muscles be- tween the shoulder blades. Another exercise device is the tension or stretch springs that you can hold between your hands and stretch the springs out using the muscles between your shoulder blades. Most trapeze work, or any type of exercise like climbing ropes hand over hand are useful in developing the shoulder mus- cles. You do not need exercises that will develop the muscles over the front of (lie chest. They may already be too strong in comparison to your weaker muscles between the shoulder blades. I am sure your physical edu- cation teacher would be glad to help you with a set of exer- cises that would help you along this line. But in the meantime ask your family doctor to direct you to an orthopedic specialist if you arc really concerned about the possibility of a defor- mity in your back. UFE ON THE J-LAZY-S-By T. H.
