Worldly con- corns are of less importance as you develop deeper philo- sophic understanding. To- day's natives are much in- clined to meditation, re- search, often with some so- cial or political application. AIUES (March 21 April Get thru the day with as little strife as possible.

Present an unruffled surface to the world; enjoy a passive mode of existence. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Vitamin E found in many foods Dear Dr. Lamb You may think that there is sufficient vitamin E in our diets but is that really true? Just where in a modern supermarket will you get foods that contain vitamin E? Tlie bread is all made from flour that lias been husked. You did mention wheat germ but how many people use that? Dear Reader Vitamin E is the same thing as "tocopherol." The word tocopherol is from Greek, "to bear because of the early recognition of the relationship of vitamin E to fertility, in rats, but not demon- strated in man. The rats re- sponded to adding wheat germ, alfalfa or lettuce to their diet. There are several variations of chemical structure of vitamin E. The capsules most people take are synthetic not a nat- Banff crash victims identified KAMLOOPS, B-C. (CP) Three persons killed Tuesday in the crash of a light plane at Banff, Alia., were Kamloops residents R C M P reported Thursday. They identified them as Fra- ser Birkenhead, 57, the pilot; his wife, Margaret, 49, and 16- year-old Patricia Watson. The Birkenheads' daughter, Barbara, 15, was injured inthe crash and was reported in cri- tical condition in Calgary hos- pital. HCMP said Mr. Birkenhead was a commercial pilot em- ployed by Kamloops Aircraft, a charter firm. He was flying his own plane from Edmonton when it came down half a mile short of the Banff airstrip, hitting about 100 yards from the Trans-Canada Highway. There were strong winds ati the time and police said if the plane was banking with the wind it could have stalled. There were no eye witnesses. ural product. It is slightly dif- ferent in chemical structure from the naturally occurring vitamin. Natural vitamin E de- creases the need for vitamin A, an effect not accomplished by the synthetic. A diet based on polyunsat- urated fat contains large amounts of vitamin E. Yes, even from foods in the super- market. In addition to wheat germ oil vitamin E is abundant in cottonseed oil, corn oil and soybean oil. The truth is vita- min E is in most natural foods, excluding refined products such as sugar, syrups and flour. It is in vegetables, meat, fish. If you want to insure a natural intake of vitamin E just follow the suggestions that have been repeatedly made in preventing heart and vascular disease and use corn oil or polyunsaturated oil for food preparation rather than sat- urated fat. Of course you could try alfalfa tea. Dtear Dr. Lamb Would you please comment on this as I'm sure other young expectant mothers would like to know? Is it true a baby born in the sev- enth month has more of a chance to survive than an eight-month baby because an eight-month baby is in its sec- ond life? Dear Reader Not at all. With the exceptions of some complications most babies have a better chance of a nor- mal birth the closer they are to term. Remember, a baby under- goes marked development changes from the beginning of pregnancy to At one stage the tiny developing baby even has gills like a fish. Many seven-month babies only weigh about three pounds and de- pending on how far along they have developed may have trou- ble surviving a premature birth. An eight-month baby may weigh two pounds more and will have achieved most of the necessary development steps. Such a baby has a good chance for survival. I don't know what you mean by the baby being in its sec- ond life, but in any case the seven month old baby may not survive while the eight- month baby usually will. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

East covered frith (he jack and South won the trick with the queen. The latter could count eight top spades, three hearts, one diamond and one club. The best hope for a ninth appeared to lay in the diamond suit If either the king or queen of diamonds is located in the West hand, South can develop a second diamond trick by taking repeated finesses. So reasoning, declarer led the jack of diamonds at trick two. When West followed suit with the deuce, the seven was played from dummy. East was in with the king of diamonds and he proceeded to cash four clubs and score a 100 point profit on the deal. North promptly noted that his partner could have made me hand by merely splitting out the spades, for dummy's long card in that suit pro- vides a ninth trick. South countered by observ- ing that it took a five-one club division to defeat him, which appeared highly unlike- ly from the opening lead. NorBi said, In reply, "All you had to do to find out, was to return a club at trick two. If the clubs are four-two, you have time to test as you chose to do. If clubs are five-one, as actually proves to be the case, then you must fall back on an even division in spades after they take four dub tricks. "Your timing was a bit faulty." WASHINGTON CAP) The United States public health service reported Wednesday a possible step toward curing genetic diseases ranging from diabetes to Mongolism with the help of implanted "hitch-hiking genes." An agency spokesman said that in a pioneer U.S. research effort defective cells from a pa- tient suffering from a genetic disease were apparently altered for the better when purposely infected in test tubes by a spe- cial virus. The virus bore a cargo of genetic materials picked up like a hitch-hiker when tie same virus had previously infected certain bacteria. The missing gene was artificially supplied to the defective cells growing in the test tubes. The patient was suffering from galactosemia, lack of a ger.e-producing chemical e n- zyme required to use sugar 'present in milk.

It is easily treated by eliminating milk and milk products from the diet.

Astronomers have studied many thousands of items in the universe and the list grows longer every year. But so far, nobody has found a heavenly body standing still. Everything out there is on the move, ro- tating and revolving and spin- ning around in stupendous pin- wheels. Early in its history, a galaxy populates itself with billions of dazzling stars. And all the ones we know about ro- tate around like spinning celes- tial saucers. Our Milky Way is a typical example of the countless gala- xies strewn through the vast reaches of outer space. We know that its pattern is re- peated time and again, perhaps in all the galaxies of the uni- verse. The earth and the solar system are inside our stupen- dous galaxy, which gives sci- entists a better chance to study it in detail. They estimate its population to be 100 billion stars, most of which may be suns with planetary systems similar to ours. The shape of the starry sys- tem has been compared to a cartwheel, with a thick crowd- ed hub and thin spokes spiral- ing out toward the rim. Vast regions are veiled by enormous clouds of dusty gases. Some of these look black and smokey, Results Bridge LETHBRIDGE DUPLICATE BRIDGE CLUBS RESULTS Ladies Wednesday Afternoon D.B.C.

Here and there are clusters of close stars that look like balls of jewels. And all these wonders rotate together around some axis in the centre of the starry sys- tem. As the Galaxy swings around, the stars out in the spiraling arms have much farther to go than those near the central axis. Here at home, Jupiter and the outer planets have to travel farther to orbit the sun. What's more they travel more slowly and lag behind. On a much grander scale, the stars of the Galaxy also move in this pattern. Those near the crowd- ed center spin faster. Our solar system is about light years from the center, where the starry traffic moves more slowly. In fact, it takes us about million years to complete one galactic rotation. Around us the starry popula- tion moves in traffic lanes. Those nearer the center catch up, pass us and move on ahead. Those in the outer lanes move more slowly. We catch up to them, pass them and move on ahead. However, the dis- tances of space between the stars are so enormous that it takes many life times to notice any changes in the celestial scenery. This pattern of galactic ro- tation was assembled from del- icate measurements and mass- es of indirect evidence. For ex- ample, the flattened disk shape of the Galaxy is thought to be molded by its rotation. Other evidence proved that many stars are approaching or re- ceding in the inner and outer traffic lanes. The rotation of our own Galaxy is now pretty well established. There is plenty of evidence to assume that countless other starry galaxies route in the same fashion. It seems that galaxies, like stars, go through stages of existence. The young ones appear to be hazy spheres of glowing gases. Signs of ro- tation appear later, as the ne- bulous gases form separate stars. Tlie motion of rotation molds the starry system into a (lattcncd disk. Questions asfced by cnnrtron of Herald readers should he mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, fluntlngton Beacd, California (I2M8.
