Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 -THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, October 3, 1973 Ask Andy AN OMMVORE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Kncyclopedia to Doug Grcenman. age 11. of Colville. Washington, for his question: What does a daddy longlegs spider oat'.' He prefers to eat meat, which he catches alive-alive- o. He also eats fresh vegetation, so long as the Iwives aiv tender and juicy. S-imetimi'S lie ignores fresh inod and (oasts on the decay- ing plant and animal material tn he found in a pile of gar- bage. Creatures that eat both meat and vegetables are om- nivores. The daddy longlegs is certainly omniverous, plus a bit of a scavenger. He also needs daily ration of drink- ing water. x This is the time of year when the daddy longlegs may be seer, striding through fields and gardens, up the trees, over the barn and around the trash cans. Actually, he was around all summer feasting and molting he grew to his full sixo. We just didn't notice him when he was smaller. Now fan hardly miss him. His small roundish body is on eight very, very long legs that look too skinny [o be safe. Some people mis- take him fur an insect, but he is a second cousin of the spiders. he does not spin webs and. unlike the solders, he does not paralyze his victims with a poisonous rite. And he does not have a waist, as the spiders do. Striding through the bushes, he pounces on mites and MiialHsh insects and now and then he catches a spider. He stabs his victims with power- ful jaws and sucks out the juices. Meaty snacks of this sort are hi> favorite food. When this is scarce, he sucks the juices from tender leaves. He also enjoys a meal or two from a pile of garbage, es- peciailv when the material lias decomposed to the soggy, soupy state. After fi good meal, the daddy hwglogs strides off in search of water. If this is scarce, his body gets stiff and he finds it hard to move with his usual he finds water just in lime, he revives almost a! once. Refi'iv the cold weather sets in. the female daddy longlegs lays batches of tiny eggs in the soil or perhaps in some crevice in the bark of a tree. Usually the adults do not sur- vive the winter and the young hatch in the spring. They are miniature copies of their parents and famish- ed for scraps of anything edible. As they grow, every ten days or so they shed their skins for larger ones. After seven or eight molts, a young daddy longlegs is ready to emerge as an adult. The old skin splits to allow the body to escape, then the little creature inches his long, long legs out of their old stockings. The daddy longlegs looks like a stranger to our planet and people tend to tell tall tales about strange-looking animals. In Europe, they predict a good harvest when there are lots of these longlegged creatures around. This is why some folks call them harvesters or harvestmen. Another tall tale claims that a daddy longlegs can help a boy to find his dog just by pointing one of his long legs in the right direc- tion. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon by Charles schulz THURSDAY, OCT. 4 Your birthday today: You must depend mainly on your own enterprise this year of kaleidoscopic circumstances. Many times you will be better off following intuition than rules and logic. All limitations should be vigorously question- ed when you encounter them, not before. Relationships are subject to odd coincidences, require special care so that full information is in effect. Today's natives have an ex- pensive, hopeful viewpoint, are usually willing to enter controversy. ARIES (March 21-April What happens today is just more of yesterday extended. Be consistent and patient; the turning point is coming soon. An evening in solitary study or meditation is advised. TAURUS (April 20-May Ongoing challenges to your temper and endurance con- tinue, each with another side issue coming into con- sideration. Count only on what you are able to manage alone. GEMINI (May 21-June Avoid hasty moves, however urgent the pressure and however dear those pushing Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Nearly every farmer near us is being doctored for heart trouble. The various doctors each have i heir own method. My husband's doctor is thinning blood with Panwarfin. My husband must have his blood tested every week. The medicine is then adjusted to I bin the blood more or to thin it less. It makes it necessary for my husband to be around to have his blood tested every week. Another man in a nearby city has a doctor who makes fun of Panwarfin. He says one aspirin tablet each morning and another each evening is all that is necessary. He says it' a person uses the aspirin his blood does not have to be tested once a week. My husband would like very much to change to aspirin if that does the work. He would like your opinion about the treatment. on Bridge BY CHAIU.ES II. GOREN c 1973. The Ciiicago Tribune Both vulnerable. o r t h deals NORTH A A .1 (i A i D 5 A K 7 A If) 7 2 WEST EAST 49754 Q8 2 8 62 0 Q 6 5 :j 2 J 10 8 8 3 A A J 6 4 SOUTH A K K Q J 7 3 0 '.i 4 1 i 5 Opening lead: Eight of A Beware of Greeks bearing gifts, or of bridge experts who tell you more about a distribution than they need fo. When this hand came up in the Spingold Team Cham- pionship of the American Contract Bridge League's Summer National Champion- ships in Wnshingion, D. C., South turned the tables on his adversary. After South had jumped to three hearts over the no trump opening bid, North made an advance cue-bid of four diamonds. This con- firmed hearts as the trump suit by implication, showed strength in diamonds and suggested a minimum count of 16, the fact that all of North's points were in aces and kings made his holding suit- able for slam in a suit. With his diamond weakness 111 ABNER plugged, South checked or aces and settled in six hearts. East won the first trick with the ace of clubs and returned the suit, declarer's queen winning. The slam hinged on guessing which defender held the queen Of spades, so before commit- ting himself, South, Tom Smith of Greenwich, Conn., set out to learn all he could about the distribution. He drew three rounds of trumps, West discarding a diamond. Next came the queen of clubs, on which West again discarded a dia- mond. Finally, the ace-king of diamonds were cashed and a diamond was ruffed, bringing down all the Out- standing diamonds. The West hand was now marked for four spades, as he was known to have start- ed with five diamonds, two hearts and two clubs. Thus, there was a slightly greater chance that he held the queen of spades, for East had started with but three spades. However, West was a fine young player, and he had gone out of his way to give declarer a count of the hand could have discarded one spade and a diamond, or even two spades, and left declarer in the dark as to his exact holding. Declarer reasoned, therefore, that West wanted him to finesse the hand that was marked with the longer spade length for the queen. If that was what the defenders wanted, it could not be right for de- clarer. Accordingly, Smith led a spade to the ace and finessed the ten on the way back to make his slam. Dear Reader Panwarfin or Coumadin is commonly used to treat patients during and after their heart attack. 1 believe the majority o{ prac- ticing heart specialists do use it. and I think it is well to use medicine to prevent blood clotting in most patients. So. 1 approve of your husband's treatment. Not everybody can take Coumadin or any other medicines used for this pur- pose, for example, the person with a history of bleeding ul- cers. The value of using anti- clotting medicines is debatable. You can find well recognized au. Cities who are for it and others who believe it has no value, or that the problems it causes out- weigh any advantages that may be obtained. This is an opinion, but I do believe that anti-clotting medicines should be used dur- ing the acute heart attack and started as soon as possible in the hospital. Then, unless there is a reason not to do so. I would prefer to see patients stay on such medicines at least a year after the attack has occurred. Beyond that period of time I am less concerned about its use. Aspirin does have some anti-clotting effects. If you take large doses it can cause bleeding from the digestive tract. However, one ordinary Sized aspirin tablet in the morning and another in the evening is not enough to great- ly decrease the clotting tendency of the blood. It might prevent excessive clotting tendencies in some people. For any medicine to be effec- tive in preventing blood clotting problems it must significantly prolong the clotting time mechanisms, and to tell if it is or is not effective the blood has to be tested. I would guess that your friend's doctor is not very im- pressed with the value of anti- clotting medicines in general for the treatment of heart at- tacks. There are some other ad- vantages to your husband be- ing seen regularly. The doctor can see how well he is sticking to his post heart attack program, and this may en- courage your husband to do so just as the person on a diet is more likely to stick to the program if seen frequently by a doctor. It sounds to me like your husband has a conscientious, capable doctor. If he wants to get the full advantage of what his doctor can do for him he should stick with the program, needles and all.
