Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THI IETHMIDGE HMALD Tueidny, Ortobtr YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY, OCT. 7 Your birthday today: Self- adequacy is your goal in the coming year. It is time your developed your inner poten- tial, and discarded some bad habits. long-term projects remain intact, but with rela- coming year. It is time you have the opportunity to serve some cause larger than your material needs. Social contacts are slower paced, too. Today's natives are sen- sitive, willing to stay with long, difficult jobs. Women born today tend to have much better luck than today's men. ARIES (March 21 April Those who follow have a much easier day than those who lead. Drastic changes made today have unwanted side effects. Steady effort brings added earnings. TAURUS (April 20 May Stay near home base you would miss something impor- tant by being away. .Channel all energy into the most crea- tive phase of your work. This evening personal concerns are poignant, hard to express. GEMINI (May 21 June Continue all due caution with money matters. Make amends, smooth out recent ripples in your relationships. The evening brings a long-missed thought or some sort of homecoming. CANCER June 21 July Friends are easily managed today; but your mate or part- ner is certain to be a bit tense. Find routines that take you out and keep you out. Evening hours are easier. LEO (July -Aug. Business, money pressures ease up, but emotional stress from loved ones and associates per- sists. Insight will show you what to do and bow to start; VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Some bargains are not within chase may outlast your needs. People very near you show a contrary mood, so your pa- tience is essential. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Today brings little progress, but a good chance to observe human nature. Think over the experience. There are old friends for reminiscence in the evening. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Discretion, courtesy are im- portant, particularly if you must travel. Old associates tend to be less co-operative. Domes- tic issues lessen if you express your deeper feelings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Thoughtless friends cause momentary confusion, but it's a smooth day in which you can improve your way of working. Personal creative endeavor turns out well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Formal maneuvers claim much of your attention. Personal affairs include emotional stress- es, perhaps unwelcome news. Gather old friends about you this evening. SQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb.

Program of Exercise Must Suit Individual Exercise, like any medicine, oxygen or sunshine has an op- timal level for each person. The simple truth is that proper ex- ercise can. savo your life and protect your health. The wrong kind and amount of exercise can harm your health or even kill you. Understand what ex- ercise can and cannot do for you. Then follow the principles learned in your own health pro- gram. Exercise uses energy which, m turn, requires that you breathe more oxygen. Not only are the exercised muscles working harder, like the leg muscles during running, but the heart muscle has to work hard- er to pump more blood for the delivery of the increased amount of oxygen to the work- ing muscles. Since the heart muscle is working harder, it also needs more oxygen. If the arteries to your heart are normal, they enlarge dur- ing exercise, carrying more blood to the heart muscle.' If the blood vessels to the heart are too diseased, usually from fat deposits in the wall of the arteries, they cannot dilate and you cannot increase the Wood or oxygen supply to the heart muscle. In severe states this may cause heart pain or even a heart attack. Exercise that involves. small muscle groups doesn't use enough energy to cause a sig- nificant work load for the heart. Running uses lots of .muscles and requires a lot of oxygen so it causes the heart to work harder. The right kind of exercise will strengthen the heart mus- cle and improve its own blood supply by increasing the size and number of open blood ves- sels in the heart muscle. If that is your goal, exercise such as walking, jogging, running, dancing, swimming or other events that use lots of muscles is the way to accomplish this. But all of this must be done gradually if you are not already in peak condition. I advise you do not start an exercise program until you have read my next several col- umns about exercise if you want to avoid problems. The work of the heart muscle depends upon how much blood it must pump and at what pres- sure. The blood pumped is lit- erally the weight the heart mus- cle must lift and the pressure is the force that must be ap- plied to the weight of the blood. If you are one with high blood pressure you have to be care- ful what kind of exercise pro- gram you use. Details Sought On Strapping Of Deaf Students TORONTO (OP) A Metro- politan Toronto school trustee says 10 deaf students were strapped in Toronto last year and she wants to know why. Mary Fraser said here five boys and five girls were strapped at the Metropolitan To- ronto School for the Deaf and that she will talk to Duncan Green, superintendent of aca- demic programs for the Metro- politan Toronto school board, about the matter. She said in an interview she does not think deaf children should be strapped for swearing or using four-letter words, one of the major reasons for the strapping outlined in a report to the board last week. The report showed that 760 children were strapped in 1969, compared with 919 the previous year and in the 1967-68 term.

In- vite friends and VE'OHWS for reconciliation. Andy sends a' complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Thad Knight, age 12, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for his ques- tion: What exactly Is pink snow? Summer visitors to the west- ern mountains often see 'pink snow on the lofty peaks, usual- ly above the timberline. Its color is pale, watermelon pink and some say it even has a faint watermelon flavor. How- ever, try to resist the tempta- tion to taste it. Pink snow is a mighty strong laxative and fa- cilities up there on the high slopes are hard to find. There are other reasons why this sort of snow sampling is inadvis- able, even though most well- soiled snow is fit to drink. The .color of snow, of course, s supposed to be white. And so it is. Its delicate flakes are embroidered from crystals of rozen water vapor and pockets of at. We see it as white be- cause it reflects all the colored rays of light. However, some- imes it borrows a rosy blush rom the setting sun. And snow janks are not alone in the world. All sorts of microscopic objects are tangled in its lacy network. The tinted snow seen on mountain slopes teems with single-celled alga or yellow, orange or green. Some 15 to 20 species are clas- sified in the genus Chlamydom- ondas. This term means having- a-shell, for their colors are spore cases. Nowadays, of course, It is proper to view even the small- st organisms in their own sys- tem of ecology. The Various colored snow algae.share their miniature world with a multi- ;ude of living and non-living ;hings. These microscopic >Iants are amazingly complex and what they lack in size they make up in numbers. A thimbleful of delicately tint- ed snow may contain more than mil a million colored algae and another half million bacteria, plus 100 or so protozoa and a quota at fungi. Some of these microbes may be unfriendly to humans, which explains why snow-testing is never advisable. Also trapped among the crowd- ed snowflakes are molecules of nitrates, phosphates and other chemicals including dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide. All these and other items partici- pate in the microscopic ecology of the snowbank. As usual, the life system be- gins with photosynthesis. The algae use solar radiation to manufacture oxygen and carbo- hydrates. They provide the bas- ic food chain for- the protozoa, the fungi and bacteria. All these various life activities break down help to re- cycle them through the system. Most of the unwanted wastes are returned to the environ- ment by the fungi raid decay bacteria. Actually, the pink snow algae are not very active in the busy system. In the spore stage, they are more or less dormant. The hungry protozoa prefer more tender algae, in their active, green stages. In colored snowbanks, they may have to settle for a diet of bac- teria. Members of the Chlamydpm- ondas genus are cryophiles. cold-loving algae, that live in snowbanks at 32 degrees Fah- renheit. Some can withstand more ultraviolet radiation than others. The pink type can sur- vive full sunshine ail day long. This is why most pink snow is high on exposed slopes. The orange and yellow types require thf- partial shade along the tim- bfrltae. Green algae thrive far- ther down the slopes, well- shaded by trees and shrubs.

Pass Pass Pass East played his cards a little "too close to the chest" in today's hand1, and thereby paved the way for a devastat- ing loss whteh his side Incurred on the deal. West opened the bidding with three North was tempted to overcall, however, his values did not quite, warrant a Vulnerable bid at the three level, so he passed. East chose to con- tinue his partner's preemp- tive activities by offering a simple raise to four dia- monds. This mild barricade did not prevent South from entering the auction, how- ever, and the latter bid four hearts. West and North passed and. East now bid five 2n action that he might well have considered on the-pre- vious round, inasmuch as he had no intention of defending against the opponent's game contract South persisted to five hearts and North sudden- ly sprang to life and bid a slam, He reasoned that inas- much as his partner had gone to the five level single Sanded, then his fine spade tuit and singleton diamond ivould produce some unex- pected tricks enough, he: hoped, to make six hearts. East's double of slam bid Is conventional and ban a player from making the normal lead, which, in the present case, would be a diamond. Since only diamond! and hearts have been, bid, West's choice is restricted to the unbid suits. East hoped that his partner would select a club. was confronted with a pure guess; however, he had nothing to go on. He finally decided to lead his singleton spade in the hope that East's high card strength was con- centrated in that suit. South played the aco of spades from dummy at trick one and promptly drew trumps by leading to the ace of hearts and then crossing back to North's jack. The two losing clubs were discarded on the king and queen of spades, and declarer gra- ciously conceded one dia- mond trick and claimed hit contract. If East had raised his partner to five diamonds directly, his opponents might not have bid the slam and a considerable saving would be achieved. East can go one step further and bid four clubs as his Initial response. This action would assure a club lead against any con- tract reached by the op- position. Altho the bid of a new suit by responder is forcing for one round, East incurs slight risk, for even if West should raise can always return to five diamonds. Observe that East and West have a cheap sacrifice, in five diamonds, losing only tricks. A save at six diamonds cost only 300 points, and if the opponents persist to six hearts, West may be expected to find the killing club lead provided that East has bid that suit earlier.
