Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 UTHBR1DGE HERALD Monday, Otlobir 18, 1971 TUESDAY, OCT. 19 Your birthday today: For months to corae you've gut enough to do merely moder- ating and getting the most constructive application from currents of creative energies. Today's natives seek leader- ship, have to strive diligently for economic wisdom.

Exercise can help bust line Dear Dr. Lamb I am sure this question is of general in- terest to a iot of women. I world either want more or less to think at one time the breasts were to nurse babies. asked my gynecologist about it However, you are right, it is a major concern of a lot of wo- men. Personally I think a wo- man's personality, intelligence and over all appearance is far more important than her bust line measurements. Let's not even talk about in- jections, pills or hormones. True, if the thyroid or adrenal gland was the problem your doctor would know it because that would cause a lot more than just small breasts. The contrast baths for your breasts won't hurt them (un- less the water is too hot) but I doubt it will do a lot to in- crease their size. The tablet you mention won't hurt you but it won't do anything for your breasts either. If you were on a deficient diet then vitamins, minerals and essential nutri- ents would be required. A pro- per diet will help maintain nor- mal breast size. and he just scoffed at me and said to be thankful I was healthy. My problem is I've gotten a bust increase plan and am not sure it's safe to use. I'm 5 feet 2 and 110 pounds, 33-27-36. healthy but thin and my chest is practically flat. Of course, I want bigger breasts but safely if possible. I don't want "large" breasts, but just enough. I understand about cream, hormone injec- tions, etc., and don't want to "take" anything. However, this plan is a series of exercises. Are exercises harmful to the breasts? A part of their plan is hydro- therapy to tone the breast. You bathe the breast in hot water, then alternate with a cold com- press about 20 times before re- tiring. Is it wise to do this? They also claim irregular functioning of fee adrenal and preferences of someone else. Take no compromises or de- lays lor granted. SCORPIO (Ocl. 23 Nov.

Once you've covered the chores of the day, hints of glamor, temptations of various sorts e'merge. With discretion you can select great innocent fun for yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Constructive approaches are available but do not include sharing critical information with everyone who seems to ce interested. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb.

Finding helium Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Al Rice, age age 12, of Berkeley, Cali- fornia, for his question. How is helium found and pro- cessed? Helium was found first in the sun, way back in 1869, and named for the sun god Helios. For almost 30 years, this gas- eous element seemed to be ab- sent from our planet. Then in 1895 researchers identified small traces of it in the min- eral clevite and later in the earth's atmosphere. But helium was not considered as a useful gas because the earth's supply seemed loo scanty. Then in 1903, larger amounts were dis- covered in Kansas natural gas wells. It is estimated that the quota of heluim in the earth's crust is as meagre as that of gold or platinum. Traces in the at- mosphere equal about one thimbleful! in 350 gallons of or- dinary air. Helium is rated as an inert gas, a very stubborn element that is reluctant to combine with other elements. It refuses to burn and its liquid temperature is a chilly minus 268.9 degrees centigrade. The only element lighter than he- lium is hydrogen. These qualities make it diffi- cult to process, or separate, he- lium from other substances. And, wouldn't you know, nature always mixes the rare and stub- born gas with a wide assort- ment of other gases. What's more, it is found only in a few natural gas deposits, most of them in North America. These precious reservoirs are worth processing when the helium content ranges from 2 per cent to 8 per cent. Non-flammable helium was recognized as a safe balloon lifting gas and around 1918, about cubic feet of it were extracted from natural gas wells in the United States and Canada. The method was similar to the one used to pro- cess oxygen. Then World War II required more helium for blimps and dirigibles. Process- ing was refined to meet the de- mands and in 1944 the United States produced almost 140 mil- lion cubic feet. Most ingrediente in natural gas are flammable and a burn- ing process would separate them from the helium. But these hydrocarbons are valu- able and worth saving. So a series of more delicate pro- cesses is required. A glycol com- pound may be used to wash out carbon dioxide and other acid- type gases. Water vapor can be dried out by alumminum com- pounds. The remaining mixture is chilled to reduce several gases to liquids, purified by fire and fumes, re-chilled and further purified b y chemical processes. The' chilling is done by com- pressing the mixture. Under pressures of 600 pounds per square inch, the temperature approaches minus 180 degrees centigrade and one by one var- ious gases reach their boiling poinls and become liquids. These can be drawn off, leav- ing a gaseous mixture of he- lium and hydrogen, argon and nitrogen. The hydrogen can be burned off; the argon, removed by charcoal fumes. This leaves a half-and-half mixture of gas- eous nitrogen and helium. Un- der pressures of tons per square inch, nitrogen ap- proaches its holing point of minus 197 degrees centigrade, becomes a liquid and separates from the gaseous helium. This helium is about 92 per cent pure, good enough for blimps but not for delicate welding and metalurgical du- ties. Further refining is needed to remove the nitrogen and oth- er impurities. This may be done with activated charcoal and baths of liquid nitrogen. The final result merits a Grade A rating, in which the impuri- ties in the helium do not ex- ceed 0.005 per cent. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Vivian Williams, age 11, of St. Catharine's, On- tario, for her question: Where was Fletcher Christian buried? On April 28, 1789, Fletcher Christian led a mtuiity on H.MS. Bounty, cast her Captain Bligh adrift and sailed off with the ship. In those days civilized folk regarded mutiny on the high seas as an unpardonable crime and we agree. When Bligh reached port, he told his side of the story and Mr. Chris- tain appeared to be the vilian. But later events revealed the true facts of Bligh's cruelty and laws were passed to reform such conduct. History now re- gards Bligh as the villain and sympathizes with the unlucky Mr. Christian. After the munity, Christian and his men sailed to Tahiti and some died there. The next year, he left with eight of his men, six Tahitian men and 12 wom- en. The small group settled on lonely little Piteairn Island. During the first 15 years, Fletcher Christian and most of the other men died and were buried on the isalnd. No one left or visisted the island until an American ship arrived in 1809. Then John Adams, the only survivor of the mutiny, had a chance to tell the other side of the story. And that's the truth.

Box 763, HunHngton Beacil, California 92648. {Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Digoxin risk eliminated in baby heart therapy SASKATOON (CP) Be-! searchers have removed the element of chance in the use of digoxin in infants so that tiny hearts can be helped by the drug to pump more efficiently until time or surgery corrects heart problems. Dr. William Sears, a research fellow in cardiology at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children and Toronot General Hospital, re- ported today that safe 'and ef- fective levels of digoxin have at least been established. Digoxin is a purified form of digitalis, probably the world's oldest heart drug and at present the only one that improves pumping efficiency of the heart without affecting other physical functions. Until now, its use in infants has been a risky procedure lie- cause the very young are un- able to tell doctors of danger signals such as blurred vision or upset stomach which indicate; poisonous concentrations in the blood. The technique reported by Dr. Sears to the Canadian Cardiov- ascular Society enables a con- stant check on the blood levels of digoxin so that flow of the drug can be stepped up or re- duced for each child- The safe and efficacious lev- els were established on the basis of experience with the technique in 62 children ranging in age from two weeks to 15 years, who were on long-term digoxin treatment. The research group found that children require roughly twice the amount of digoxin as an adult to be effective. Ncwborns to six weeks require the most. Since these levels are close to the danger line of toxicity, con- stant monitoring of blood levels of the drug is essential. Tills is especially so for chil- dren with impaired kidneys as well as heart trouble because they expel the drug much slower than those with normal kidney function. rUMBLiWEEDS-By TOM K.
