Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THt LITHMIDGE HERAIO Wedne.doy, October 14, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY, OCT. 15 Your birthday today: One of the quietest years in your experience begins. You de- velop general competence in your field, mastering new technique and very likely reach the point of leading the way, speaking for your group. You must continue ex- pressing your deeper feel- ings daily. Today's natives are careful students with in- terest in research. Their im- partiality is considered typi- cal of all people born under the sign of Libra. ARIES (March. 21-April Your whim is toward. reckless plunges into questionable ven- tures. Your patience with any shortage is near expiration sudden purchases aren't the best answer now. TAURUS (April 20-May Don't let enthusiasm for change lead you into going along with expansive schemes. See that your changes are conservative, overdue, rather than radical departures. GEMINI (Slay 21-June Set your own warning signals, guidelines, to tell when you are overdoing anything. Emotional urges lead to momentary ex- travagance just be sure it's what you really want. CANCER (June 21-.Iiily Where you get Interest and co- operation, much can be done.

Use the greatest tact, but press firmly forward. The evening brings you cause for mild celebration, revision of plans. VIHCiO (Aug. 2S-Sept. Think matters through private- ly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Find extra time and some symbolic gift for your loved ones. Conflict between and material interests should not be allowed to become chron- ic set limits, and abide by them.

Food in Your Diet Can Be Ruining Your Health What are you doing about i teaspoonful of water is about your diet? Unless you make a four grams) of ni'-fl fst v'h- real effort to eat right, the food you eat may ruin your health. One of the chief differences in our culture, afflicted as it is with early deaths from heart disease and: mental senility, from those cultures free of these civilized diseases is what we eat. Despite Hie Importance of food to our health, vast num- bers of intelligent people have only vague ideas about a prop-1 er diet. Others go on fad diets ami there is more malnutrition in .the United States because of. ignorance than because of pov- erty. The first basic necessity for a proper diet is that it must contain all the essential food elements, vitamins, proteins and minerals. Many fad diets fail in this regard. The amount of food calories you eat must be bal- anced against the calories you use in your daily activity to prevent developing dangerous fat deposits. You don't need to count calories. If you have or develop excess fat under the skin usually around the waist are eating too much or exercising too little for you. No diet will be successful in pre- venting heart and vascular dis- ease unless you prevent obes- ity. H you eat foods with lower calorie content you can have a satisfying diet that shouldn't fat- ten you. Much of the diet prob- lem begins in the kitchen. You don't need will power; you need proper food. The amount of calories in food is influenced by its water content. Lean raw beef, for ex- aample, is over 70 per cent wa- ter, while raw beef fat contains less than 20 per cent water. This factor alone means that the fat out water contains nine cal- ories and one gram ci pure pro- tein in the Bowden Stresses Giving Inmates Responsibility no drug incidents in the institu- tion here." He added that the "whole idea of minimum security prisons is getting them out of the tradi- tional 'jail environment' and into a rehabilitation program before they are put back in soci- ety." The system- works on some- i tiling akin to the honor system. "We put responsibility back." Physically speaking there is He said there is "a more sim- nothing to stop the young men plified society" in the institu- tion. "When you look at it that way, there are fewer regula- tions here than out in today's complex society. "We take the prisoner out of society because he has not been coping with it properly. "If he can handle the rules of the institution, he should not have much difficulty when back in society. "On the oilier hand, if they can't take our rules, they are probably recidivists and will be back in an institution aftef fail- ing in society again." COMMITTEE DECIDES One doesn't get into Bowden four calories. Ths net result is just bv convicted of a that, ounce sue contains five tunes as many calories as lean muscle tissue. Obviously, if you need to limit the calories in your food, you can't include boo much fat in your diet. Pure carbohydrate, like su- gar, contains four calories per gram. A level teaspoonful of su- gar (slightly more than four grams) contains nearly 20 cal ories. Unlike fat tissue and mus- cle tisue it has almost no wa- ter. For this reason a pound of sugar contains nearly three times as many calories as a pound of lean muscle tissues. Sugar or other concentrated carbohydrates and fat are ma- jor sources of calories. Lean maat, many vegetables and fruit are food sources with limited calories per pound and are rich sources of essential vitamins, minerals and proteins. Dear Doctor How' much water should a person drink a day? Dear is no magic figure. Your sense of thirst is your best guide. You will get soms water in the food you eat, plus the beverages you drink, such as milk, coffee, soft drinks and fruit juice. .Roughly, a normal adult loses a quart of water a day from invisible per- spiration of the skin and an- other quart in the urine. If your water intake in food and bever- ages doesn't equal this, you will be thirsty and need to drink more fluid. You do not need a specific additional amount of water to wash out poisons contains many than the lean. more calories through the kidneys, as some One gram (a people think.

A committee decides whether one is suitable for Bowden's program. said Mr. Ben- ner, "the committee is looking for men who are motivated to- wards trade training classes and upgrading." The committee whether "such men can, function in the minimum-security atmos- phere." An estimated 40 to 50 per cent of the prisoners at present in Bowcten were convicted on charges involving drug posses- sion or trafficking. "But we're fortunate so Mr. Benner said. "We have had at Bowden from escaping. Mr. Benner emphasized that there is nothing but their own judgment to stop prisoners from the almost inevi- table certainty that they will be recaptured and their sentences lengthened. On the average, about 10 try to escape each year, but so far none has been able to remain at large for long. HIT AT BAD HABITS "A good portion of our said Mr. Benner, "lies in re- forming men's habits. We try to erase bad habits while we encourage good habits. "We are as lenient as possi- ble; we don't implement punish- ment for its own sake yet we still try to maintain a fair level of discipline." Lack of discipline was what got them into Bowden in the first place. "We have gained a great deal hi the past few years hi getting inmates back into society. They can be accepted at universities and the co-operation we receive from employers is becoming decides better all the time. Most busi- nesses will give a man a chance as long as he is willing to prove liimself." Mr. Benner came to Bowden after 12 years at Belmont Heha- bilitation Centre in Edmonton, the other Alberta minimum-se- curity jail and operated mainly for men whose problems are rooted in alcohol. Andy sends a complete 2ft volume set of World Book Encyclopedia to Joanne Orr, aged 11. of Niagara Falls, On- tario, Canada, for her ques- tion: How does helium affect the hu- man body? Helium i s a gaseous ele- ment and gases have their own rulebook of behavior. They are too delicate to be handled like solids or liquids and they in- sists on their freedom to roam. This makes their fascinating antics hard to study. Besides, the gases of pure, unpolluted air are all invisible, odorless and lasteles. The percentage of helium in this airy mixture is very, very small. So no won- der the scientists of a few generations ago never guessed that helium exists. I Although nitrogen is the most I abundant gas in the air and, helium is one of the scarcest, they are somewhat alike. Both are do-nothing elements that remain aloof and refuse to as- sociate with other elements. Under, normal conditions they do not. with chemicals, even with the energetic bio- chemicals of the human body. The air we take in with every breath contains a large dollop j of nitrogen and the tiniest smidgen of helium. Our lungs j ignore these lazy gases in the j mixture and grab a helping of LANCilOT-By Cokor t THINSSTDBUV. fuses to co-operate with any of the body's chemical activities. However, large concentra- tions of helium can ease suf- fering and even save human lives. It is more. than three times lighter than nitrogen and easier to breathe. Special breathing mixtures in which helium is substituted for nitro- gen are used to relieve asth- matic and bronchial patients. Similar gaseous mixtures, are used by deep-sea divers. Nitro- gen tends to dissolve and under the immense pressure of deep water it forms bubbles in the blood stream. This causes agonizing cramps called "the Unless the sufferer spends hours in a special de- compression chamber, this deep-water disease may be fa- tal. Helium was used to replace nitrogen in some of the Sealab experiments. However, lots of helium doss strange things to ihe vocal chords, ft sends the voice up into a high-squeaky range and reduces its purring resonance. When the aquanauts down in the Sealab telephoned upstairs, their deep, manly voices sounded somewhat like Donald Duck.
