14 THI IETHBRIDCI HERALD Thurtday, Ott.b.r 1, WO YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, OCT. 2 Your birthday today: Prac- tical application is the key this coming year. What you have learned in the recent past suddenly becomes very useful in unexpected con- texts. Old skills are used in changing conditions. Roman- tic interests are less stress- ful less visible, yet more alive than ever. Today's na- tives possess resources, sel- dom mobilized fully, which may show in crises as ag- gressive initiative. Many have made great progress in science and (he arts. AH1ES (March 21-Anril Any error you make today may widen existing gaps, push pec- pie further from your path. Keep peace by letting others shoiv their leadership. TAURUS (April 20 May Unexpected circumstances are normal. Pick up the pieces briskly and resume work with- out trying to find a scapegoat. Important people decide with- out hearing the whole story. GEMINI (May 21-Jime A streak of luck, perhaps something that does not seem very good when it breaks, later is seen as a factor saving you much loss and distress. Personal relationships need tact. CANCER (June 21-JuIy Your home life is somewhat chaotic as 'you cope success- fully with some disruptive con- dition. Relatives, friends are very helpful where older peo- ple are concerned. LEO (July 23-Aug. Your reactions are sharp and quick. Be wary of showing impatience with friends, relatives. Long- standing family problems come to a head and perhaps sudden solution. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Decisions about money are out for today. Begin correcting flaws in creative .activity. Think back and see how lucky you've been through the week thus far. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Your mood of independence and impulsiveness keeps you from making the best use of today's opportunity. Circum- stances work out in, unplanned and shortcuts be- come essential. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. IA break in your regular activi- ty seems inconvenient but ac- tually points to a course you have not yet explored. Friends help bridge communication gaps keep the story simple. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. The less prominent a role you play in the drama of to- day's turmoil the better. Busi- ness negotiations are rapid. Protect the feelings of your riends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Many changes pop all around you. Accept them as ;emporary and hugely sur- face; delay your reaction until r'ou can see more of the trends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Ftb. Pooling finanacial re- sources provides one solution to Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Tommy Gehrleih, age 10, of Rochester, New York, ior his question: Why are lambs always born In the spring? In the world of nature, things are arranged in orderly pat- terns. For example, the growth of living things is timed to make the best use of the earth's changing seasons. Wild ammals ir.i'st cope with winter and summer weather. Until a few thousand years ago, the ancestors of our sheep and cattle lived in the wild. Through countless ages, they FOR OfllLY Dial-A-Thought 3274581 family problems now. Your caution with strangers is well regard, as later something is not quite what you assume. Expect changes. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Today brings freaky flips of circumstance, probably fortu- nate but not to be depended upon for any great benefit. Hard, consistent work pays off better than ever.

NOKTH WEST EAST OK7S developed ways to cope with the changing seasons and even in captivity they still keep the successful habits that helped them to survive. Winter, of course, is the harsh season when food scarce especially for sheep and other grazing animals. This is no time to bring baby lambs into the world. The best time is early spring, when the plea- sant season is about to begin The youngsters find plenty of food and by fall they learn enough to cope with harsher conditions. Not only sheep, but most other animals, arrange to have their children arrive in the springtime. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

West opened the king of Clubs against the final con- tract and East followed with the nine as 'the beginning of an echo to show a doubletoai South realized that if he won the trick, West could be expected to put up the ace of spades when trumps were led and then give his partner a club ruff. In an attempt to disrupt his opponents' line uf tations, declarer followed 'with the deuce of permitting West to hold tha trick. Now it was tie latter's turn to deliberate. South was marked with both of the missing aces to warrant his opening bid. Altho a club continuation ostensibly present tha .declarer with a trick, West might still give his partner ruff on the third round-pro, viding that he made proper lead at trick two. West continued with tha queen of clubs, not a small one, and South was in with the ace. A. spade was led and West put up the ace to lead a third club. East ruffed and returned a diamond. South played the four from his hand and West scored the setting trick with the king., Observe, that if West hud led a small club at trick two, declarer can put up North'! jack and then discard the ace of clubs on the ace of hearts. When West gets in with tba ace of spades to lead a third club, South is in position to overruff East and thereby limit his losses to one spade, one diamond and one club. By continuing with tha queen of clubs, West placed the lead in the declarer's hand and inasmuch as tha latter had no quick entry to the dummy for the discard on the ace of hearts, he was unable to nreyent the ruff. igie Blood Pressure Reading Tells Little Q My blood pressure va- ries all over the map. My doc- tor says the reason for the va- riation is emotional. Is it pos- sible that I am upset emotion- ally subconsciously?

UTHBR1DGE nervous, not "afraid" of a heart problem, A It helps to understand what determines the level ol blood pressure. The pressure in the arteries is dependent upon two factors, how much blood the heart pumps into the ar- teries each minute and the ca- pacity of the arterial tree or artery network receiving the blood. If the arterial network remains the same size, like a plumbing system of pipes, the pressure will rise whenever the heart pumps more blood. If the amount of blood being pumpec by the heart remains the same but the arterial tree is de- creased in size the pressure in the arteries goes up. The arteries can contract un- der the influence of various nerve reflexes and chemicals. This may occur suddenly, like a reflex, and cause a sudden rise in blood pressure. The heart can change the amount of blood it pumps almost in- stantaneously. The sudden change in heart rate is an in- dication of this. Any emotion or stress may cause changes in the action of the heart to raise blood pres- sure. In some people the ar- teries seem to contract in a reflex manner more readily than in others. I have examined many young healthy men in the Air Force flying crews Who had a reflex response to having their blooc pressure taken. The tension as- sociated with the examination caused them to have a sudden sharp rise in their blood pres- sure. After several examina- ovt-r a periyj of days, oftci! Mi c i r blood pressure would be normal. To them it was simply an annoying refles reaction. This is why a single blood pressure determination that is elevated in the doctor's office is not worth much. Some individuals with this problem are placed en medicines, which dees nothing for them. I have seen patients taking medicine to control their blood pressure, who had the same pressure after the medicines were dis- continued. forms of high blood pressure can lie cured, specifi- cally those caused by a local- ized obstruction to the blood flow to the kidney and rarely certain tumors of the adrenal gland over the kidneys. Many people with mild ele- vation of the blood pressure can cure tiieir problem by get- ting rirl of excess body fat and improving their exercise pro- gram.
