Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wodrusday, November 25, 1970 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon V, NOV. 36 Your birthday today: The visible features of your life now must be smoothed out into the simplest appearance. You can, and should, with- draw much of your affairs from general public notice. Possessions and habits which have lost their meaning should be disposed of or con- verted to serve your best interests. Romantic interests assume greater importance in your daily life. Today's na- tives arc affectionate, home- loving people with imagina- tion and the need to do things differently. ARIES (March 21-April Unplanned expense today is normal; try to be sure you're getting your money's worth. Gather friends for an evening of fun and sociability. TAURUS (April 20 May Concentrate on working alone or where you don't need much close collaboration. Your pride is open to all if you let it. The evening is for serious study. GEMINI (May 21-Jnne Meet others at least halfway now. Your tact is tested, and vou make it somehow. Your work includes some interesting, critical moments. Attend the the needs of older people. CANCER (June 21 July Start early and get a prosper- ous and active day in, skipping no opportunity. Taper off fairly early and rest, meditate, retire early. LEO (July 23 Aug. Find ways of converting your possessions to better uses. Put out of your mind for the mo- ment concern over old matters you can do nothing about. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. This is not the day to present a legal or formal application; it's the time for understanding others and their feelings. _Ask and answer pertinent questions. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Normal progress is indicated; nothing holds you back but your own habits. Add some- thing to your savings account. Explain plans realistically to your family tliis evening. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Somebody upsets your sched- ule. Have personal means ready to help out and perhaps reduce the hindrance to your own welfare. Emotional ties now show their depth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. More liarm than good iu chemical laxatives Most people eat less in adult life, particularly with advane- ing years and decreased physi- cal activity. The decrease in bulk and the inactivity leads to less-frequent bowel movements in some cases. The sens of satisfaction stemming from a loved par- ent's reward of praise for the child's good performance is lost, resulting in a sense of dissatisfaction. It is then that preoccupation with the bowels, the laxatives and the enemas often begins. The chemical laxatives often cause more harm than good. They irritate the small inten- tine and cause undigested food to be dumped into the colon. Hera the food decomposes, lib- erating excessive amounts of gas and foul odors. This con- tributes to distention and gen- eral ill feeling. The colon re- sponds by staving down the movement of the undigested food, by contracting and com- pressing the material. Soon the colon has areas of "spas IB" and above the "spasm" areas distended with the excess gas. Pain results from the overdistended colon and the spasm. Water is ex- tracted from the delayed stool, causing small, dry, hard stool products. The increased con- traction and activity of the coion causes more mucus to be formed from the glands in the wall of the large intestine. The results are stools of small hard material, interspersed with mucus, fluid and a great deal of gas. Many individuals continue to take laxatives because of the smtU hard stools. If they stop the laxative, me hard-pressed small intestine slows down, There is little or co undigested fonrf propelled into the colon. Of course, this delays the stool and the desired daily bowel movement does not occur. _ This serves to confirm the patient's opinion that a laxative is neces- sary for a "normal daily bowel movement." The victim is now fully hooked on the laxative habit. The small intestine and i colon are continually irri- Uted. The stools remain ab- normal, the gas and pain per- sist. Some laxatives simply add bulk to the stool. These contain agar, a gelatinous material that expands by absorbing wa- ter. This is less harmful but unnecessary if one is eating a proper diet. Enemas are not quite as bad as chemical laxatives. They don't irritate the small intes- tine and therefore don't cause the resulting from propelling undigested food into the colon. For the most part they act by increasing the vol- ume in the rectum and through this means stimulating a bowel movement. Premature empty- ing of the colon, however, causes one to mir the next day's bowel movement. The re- sult is danger of being hooked on a daily enema ritual.

Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to David Fto- nie.'age 11 of Rexdale, On- tario, Canada, for his ques- tion: What exactly Is the lilho- sphcre? Litho is borrowed from an older word for stone, and a sphere is a round ball, either a shea or a solid globe. The litho- sphere is the earth's outer shell of crustal rocks. Compared with the globe's interior, it is made of lightweight materials. It enfolds the earth like the peel of an orange. However, i! th? earth were reduced to this scale, the lithosphere peel would be papery this. The materials from which our planet is made are ar- ranged in layers, with the heaviest ones in the middle of tne earth. Since the earth is a globe, its assorted layers fit around it in spheres. The atnw sphere is the light layer of gas- es above lie surface. The hydo- spbere means the sphere of water. Since the oceans cover only about 71 per cent of the earth, you might expect that this is an incomplete sphere. However, this is not so. The hydrosphere includes the lakes and rivers, the ground water, the frozen glaciers, countless tons of water vapor in the glo- bal atmosphere, plus the rains and snows that fall on every acre of the land. The lithosphere is the top layer of crustal rocks. It lifts up to form the continents and islands and dips down to form the solid floors of the seas. It is made from a vast assort- ment of rocky minerals and its rnsia feature is restlessness. This is because of the lilho- sphere's position in the earth's structure of shells. It sii.s on top of a dense, immensely thick layer called the manvje. Above it is the atmosphere, shifting part of the hydro- sphere through the perpetual water cycle. Earth scientists suspect that the lithosphere is a trifle too large and fits around the globe somewhat like a loose over- coat. It sits uneasily on the dense, hot mantle below it and immense forces within the earth are always trying to ad- just it, A force called isostasy strives to keep the crustal weight evenly distributed around the globe. But the weathery atmosphere and the cycling hydrosphere are for- ever shifting countless tons of surface materials. This upsets the global balance and triggers upheavals, such as mountain- making, to adjust it. The thickness of the litho- sphere varies from five to about 40 miles. The thin areas are below the seas and flat level plains. The thickest are lofty mountains, with roots pressing deep into the mantle below. Strange to say, the thick mountain slabs weigh no more than, the thin layers of the plains. This is because moun- tains are made mostly of lavas and other lightweight litho- sphere minerals. In time, the atmosphere erodes them and deposits their materials in heavier layers of flat sedimen- tary rocks. This immense dis- placement eventually triggers another weight adjustment. The loose lithosphere is cracked in enormous crustal slabs. Some of them shift rest- lessly around, often in differ- ent directions. We now know that the entire lithosphere gradually shifts and drifts around, moving the global geography from pole to pole. Andy sends a World Book Globe to Kathryn Wall, age 12, of Huntsville, Alabama, for her question: How old is London? London on the Thames, as everybody knows, is the capital city of Great Britain. Its history began before Julius Caesar invaded Britain in 54 B.C. At that time it was most likely a Celtic settlement around a fordable bend in the river. The Roman conquerors erected buildings and a fortress wall and named the city Londinium. It was the meeting place of six major Roman roads and the river be- came the major port between Britain and the rest of Europe. When the Romans departed in the 400s, London was raided and plundered. But because of its strategic position as both a port and a meeting of roads, it was rebuilt. For centuries its history was a series of plunder and rebuilding. During this pe- riod, the capital city was Win- chester, 66 miles to the south- west. As the barbarous in- vaders were subdued, the kings preferred to live in the more prosperous city of London and even tually London replaced Winchester as the capital city of England.

With the appear- smce of a singleton diamond 5n dummy, East chose to overtake the king wilh tte see so that he might make a Jieart play for his partner. The shift was to the five of hearts, South followed the and West won the trick, with the jack. West cashed the nee of hearts to complete book lor his side, however the defense thru. Uoelarer won the club shift in dummy, dtcw Irunip and discarded i his remaining diamond on a high club. In our opinion, neither defender distinguished him- self. East unnecessarily com- plicated matters ,'or his sida by overtaking his partner's king of diamonds, inasmuch as the heart play can origi- nate more effectively from West's side of the table. Observe that if East follows to the opening lead with the deuce of diamonds, his lowest card in that suit, it will suggest the desirability o( a shift. The appearance of the dummy will make it obvious that hearts offers the only prospect for developing addi- tional tricks. If West shifts to the aca and another heart. East is in on the secomi round with the king and on the is unable to prevent West Irom scoring the -retting trick in trumps. If declarer ruffs the third heart with the queen cf spades. West's jack be- comes established. On the other hand, if South ruffs with the ten of spades, West can nverruff. West could have salvaged the operation lor his side by winning the first heart trick; with thtt ace and returning the jack, K East docs not have the king of hearts, it is unlikely that the defense can take any more tricks tor- after the trumps are drawn, South will ho in position to discard any remaining losers on dummy's high clubs.
