Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -THE LETHimDOl HIHALO November I. ItM Ask Andy RUFFLED GROUSE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Selina age of for her Is there a bird called the raff- ed Yes indeed there is a ruffed grouse and he belongs to North America. He has a or of feathers which he can make stand up from his neck. The ruffed grouse ruffles his struts around and drums his wings to attract his lady-love. When this fellow goes cour- all the wild creatures for quite a distance around know about it. The various grouse are chicken-sized birds who nest and spend most of their time on the ground. All of them wear beautifully speckled outfits that blend in with the earthy scenery but the males wear a few extra embellishments. The sage grouse of the central prairies wears a large white weskit that looks like sheepskin. When he spreads his fan- shaped you see that the feathers are pointed The ruffed grouse lives from Alaska throughout most of North America. His speckl- ed plumage blends in with his favorite woodlands There is a droopy pencil of feathers on top of his little round head and a ruffle of freckled brown feathers around his plump lit- tle neck His ladylove is somewhat smaller and less or- nate Throughout most of the the grouse family tries to keep out of sight Pew peo- ple notice foraging around for fruits and berries and young leaves. But when spring comes all of this caution is thrown to the winds Mr. Ruffed Grouse goes a-courting and proudly he announces this exciting event to every creature who has ears to hear he is not a great opera singer for the mockingbird. Nor does he warble like a song sparrow. In the ruffed grouse has very little to say. He utters his love songs by whirring his wings so fast that they make a thumping noise like the beating of mighty drums Some people call him the drumming grouse He drums up his throbbing love song while standing quite usually on a fallen log right out there in plain sight. If his ladylove happens to be within a mile or she comes strolling casually towards him. When he catches a glimpse of her in the he changes his tactics and goes into stage two of his courtship. The whirring wings stop their drumming. The tail spreads out in a feathery all speckled with browns and neatly banded with black stripes. The ruffled collar puffs up and tufted crown stands erect. Mr. Ruffed Grouse is ready to perform his courtship strutting proudly on his log. The 'nest of the ruffed grouse is no more than a leaf- lined hollow in the often partly concealed under low-hanging boughs. The mother incubates her dozen or so eggs for almost a month The handsome father is right there to help feed and educate the fluffy chicks. The whole family stays close together until the youngsters are able to cope with life on their own. Qimttom asked by child- ran of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box.

Many projects now are expedients short and for limited quickly outworn or-exchanged for others. Relationships are re- quire all your tact and con- cern Today's natives are much given to being guided by .their even in matters where their own judgment is very good. Aries 21-April You're likely to tell somebody off who doesn't really deserve it Enough upheaval is in the air over yesterday's sudden decisions without adding temper. Taurus 20-May What you do now is going to be long and by peo- ple who benefit only second or third-hand from those you deal with It is up to you to select the upright sort. Gemini 21-June If you aren't able to say to a friend and make it take off somewhere All too easily you can squander and materials where much less would do as well Cancer 21-JuIy Your colleagues are helpful but in elusive nothing that can be pointed out or made into a story Your own discretion helps Avoid wasting time over the woes of others Leo 23-Aug.

Scorpio Efficiency requires defnite decisions You can't use any one kind of tool for all jobs and you can't use people at all Even normal cooperation takes a little extra care now.

LAMB Kindly comment on long term effects of diuretics A national magazine commenting on reducing diets says they are very yet they seem to be freely used by physicians for high blood pressure and kidney malfunction. READER Even good things in life are rmful if used too much or too often. Oxygen is essential for but top much causes oxygen toxicity and even death Diuretics are wonder- ful medicines when properly used in optimal amounts in the right person who needs them. They can be harmful if used otherwise. There are lots of in the new- a sort of medical equivalent of and such reports are usually The main purpose of diuretics commonly used is to help the kidneys eliminate sodium found in salt which in turn causes the body to release excess water that is held in the tissues They seem also to have some further un- explained effect in lowering blood pressure to some degree When problems occur it is usually because too much salt has been or a related too much potassium salt has been wash- ed out of the body. These problems are easily cor- rected. A good-sized glass of orange juice two times a day when taking diuretics usually helps protect against the loss of too much potassium. Individuals have used diuretics for years without any difficulties as long as they are used properly and ade- quate efforts are made to pre- vent excessive depletion of sodium and potassium salt. I don't approve of their use for fat reduction and they do not eliminate excess body fat. DEAR DR. LAMB Would you please tell me what causes blackheads. My mother tells me it is from not washing your face properly and leaving soap on and dry- ing it with a towel. what could I use to get rid of them and DEAR READER Mothers like to see well scrubbed and it does. help to prevent pimples and related problems. blackheads are not dirt. They are the normal oily or fatty secretions of the skin glands. The plug of oil contains chemicals that turn black or brown on exposure to the air as a chemical reaction. If you. look carefully at one after it is removed you will see that only the surface is discolored and the deeper plug is not. The average problem is caused by excessive forma- tion of oily and the problem is usually worse around puberty and in the teen years. The normal sex hor- mones that are formed in large amounts with the body changes predispose to ex- cessive oily secretions. It does help to wash the skin regularly' with soap and water. Use a very warm and hold it over the skin area for a few minutes then bathe the surface and repeat This helps to soften the waxy and it can often be washed away then. After you are wipe the skin carefully with alcohol. This also helps to remove oily material This won't cure all the but it helps in the mild cases. More serious problems should be treated by a skin specialist. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.
