Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 'ME IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 21, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon FRIDAY, Oct. 29 Ytmr birlliclny today: The challenge of Hie year ahead is mainly keeping your estab- lished earnings up to a level which provides lime and space for growth of mental and social expressions. To- day's natives are inclined to be both diplomatic and ac- quisitive. ARIES (March 21 April Unfinished business takes high- est priority. You can't afford to leave much open over the week- end as conditions can change quickly. TAURUS (April 20 May If you can catch the current discrepancies before they widen into serious differences, you'll be doing well. Consultations with experts, more experienced friends pay heavy dividends. (May 21 June Shout if you must, be heard, but on the issues rather lhan any personal competitiveness. CANCER (June 21 July You have access to stronger energy sources within and with- out exercise prayer where and as deeply you may. (July 23 Aug. You will be proud of restraining an uncertain temper today, when you see how relatively minor all the issues under discussion turn out to be. VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. Allow yourself [o be serene and peaceful while taking due pre- cautions wherever you go. Cour- tesy is a part of good fortune at present. LIBRA (Sept. Oct. An intermission, a moment's re- flection in the midst of the day's LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Faith affects your emotions Dear Dr. Lamb What makes blood appear in the stools? I had a real good x-ray of my colon and stomach and ever since then when my bow- els move there is some blood in the stools, bright red. My doctor says it's a nervous stom- ach. The reason I had this x- ray was because I had had a pain on my left side but no blood in the stools then, just some mucus. Dear Reader Your doctor was probably trying to tell you that nervous tension was affect- ing your digestive tract or your colon to cause your difficulty. An irritated colon can cause bleeding. This isn't too surpris- ing since there are so many blood vessels in the wall of the intestine. Bright red blood usually means that the blood is from the colon or rectum. Blood from higher points, from an ulcer near the stomach for example, wfll be partially digested or black. Hemorrhoids or piles are a common source of bleeding. The internal type, just inside the muscular sphincter ring can bleed without other symp- toms. This area is not seen on 8 colon x-ray and must be ex- amined directly with a small scope in the rectum. Examina- tion of the rectum by finger or scope is necessary to find dis- ease in that area, including can- cer, that will be missed by x- ray. A large number of cancer of the bowels are revealed by finger examinations. This prompts me to advise anyone that if his doctor doesn't do a rectal examination what he needs is a new doctor. After an x-ray, the barium material used may be hard to expel. The rocky material can irritate the rectum and if hem- orrhoids are already present this can cause bleeding. This is a good reason for special care of the bowels after such an examination. Dear Dr. Lamb I am a 14-year-old girl. My veins real- ly show a lot in my arms and legs and they are getting worse. On each of my arms one sticks out on the top side. I am afraid this might wreck my future. I'm not Uiat skinny, I'm 5 feet 1 and weigh 95 pounds. Will they go away or show forever? My grandma says I work too hard. I cut grass, clean the house, dishes, pull weeds and am very active in sports. Dear Reader It is prob- ably just one of your physical characteristics. As you gain weight as you mature they may disappear. A few medical con- ditions cause enlarged veins from pressure. You can do a simple test. Let your hand hang down to your side and watch the veins pop out. Now hold up the back of your hand just in front of your nose. If the veins collapse you probably do not have any increased pressure Uiat would be medically impor- tant. busy routines brings a cheery insight. SCORPIO (Oct. 23- Nov. You can better your own situa- tion, perhaps a great deal, with luck and hard work plus a good endorsement. Get busy early. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. A confusing morning set- tles as quickly as you realize that you're the center of most of it. Later hours indicate en- lightenment gained from self- examination. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Being organized serves Its purpose except that you now tend lo overdo a little. Leave yourself room lo improvise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18 Tliis is one of those days when it's mainly up to you. Most people seem somewhat abra- sive, carried along by their own strivings. Wish them well and mind your own manners. PISCES (Fell. 19 March If you have thought about re- location, plan further. If not, give room to ideas of revision in your daily living. Test tube babies warning issued GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN [e BT Trlbvne] North-South vulnerable North deals. NORTH 4AQZ <7K9864 O43 WEST EAST AJ3543 AKI06 O965 072 J65 Q983 SOUTH 487 VA2 OAKQJ10! Tfoe bidding: North East Sooth Wert 1 c? Paw 3 o Pass 3 NT Pass 6 0 Pm Fau Opening lead: Font of When South heard his part- ner open the bidding with one heart, his thoughts were immediately focussed on a slam. The only question was far he would go. His response was a jump shift (o three diamonds which shows 19 points and flashes the slam idgnnl AKho North's rebid of three DO trump shows a minimum opening and is a South was not deterred and proceeded di- rectly to six diamonds. His partner's failure to rebid hearts tended to indicate that be held side values in tiie Mack suits, should present a reasonable play for slam. West opened' the (our of and declarer played the queen from dummy to the hope that his opponent had led from the king. East produced that card, however, to win the trick and returned the ten to dislodge North's ace. Trumps were drown in three rounds, followed by the ace, king and a third round of hearts which was ruffed In the closed hand. When the suit failed to divide three- three, South was unable to successfully establish dum- my's long card in the suit for tberc was only one entry Uft in the North hand. Altho South ran down all of fcis trumps, no squeeze developed and, in the end, tie was obliged to surrender tire setting trick in clubs. Declarer gave up his best chance to make Hie isnd at trick one when te took the spade finesse. The fate of the contract does not actually hinge on the location of the king of spades and, in an; event, that play can be postponed to a later without prejudice. The best prospect for developing a 12tb trick is in setting up dum- my's long heart. All that is required is no worse than a four-two division in that suit, in which case success can ba achieved provided that North retains tile ace of spades as well as the king of clubs for the necessary side entries. It is suggested that the deuce of spades be played at the first trick. Even tho this gives East the opportunity to score a cheap trick, he cannot pursue the attack in spades and a valuable unit of time is gained. Incidentally, East is himself presented with a problem -at trick one inasmuch as be cannot be certain who has the jack of spades. If he puts up the king of spades, all of South's problems are over. But let us that he guesses to put in the ten and presumably exits with a trump. Declarer draws three rounds of trumps and then plays the ace, long and an- other heart which ruffs. When West shows up with two hearts, success becomes assured. Dummy is entered once with the king of clubs to trump out East's queen of then with the ace of spades to cash the nine of hearts and discard South'! losing club. Observe that if Die hearti are divided five-one, South retains a late opportunity to try the spade finesse last resort attempt to find a parking place for declarer's cluh. Three chances tro wrely better tliia CAMBRIDGE, England (Reu- ter) A British scientist has warned that experiments to cre- ate test tube babies could have horrifying results similar lo the tragedy that followed the use of the thalidomide drug. Dr. Max Perutz of Cambridge University, who won a Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1962, says he agrees with American scientists who urged a halt to certain experiments in this field because of the possibility of an abnormal baby being born. The experiments are being carried out in Britain by Dr. Robert Edwards, a Cambridge physiologist, and Patrick Step- toe, an obstetrician and gynecol- ogist. Dr. Perutz, head of the Medi- cal Research Council's molecu- lar biology department at Cam- bridge, said one aspect of Dr. Edwards' understand the early development of a human ethically and scientifically justified. But he added: "His second aim was to fertilize ova in j test tube and to reimplant these ova into infertile women, and this involved too great a risk." Dr. Perutz said that even il only a single abnormal baby was born and had to be kept alive for the rest of its life as an invalid. Dr. Edwards woulc have a terrible guilt. "The idea that this might hap- pen on a larger new thalidomide hor- rifying." Deformed babies were born to women who had taken the drug thalidomide, which was manu- factured as a tranquilizer. The leaning tower Andy sends a complete 20- v o 1 u m e set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Tim Kelley, age 14, of Spokane, Washington, for his question: What makes the Tower of Pisa lean? The famous bell tower began to lean as the first three levels were completed. The architects realized that it stood on weak sandy ground but decided to finish it anyway. Gradually, through more than 600 years, it has continued to tilt to one side. Some call it the Falling Tower of Pisa because someday it just may tip too far and topple. However, modern engineers feel certain that Uie Leaning Tower is not likely to fall in the near future and maybe never. The story began in the Middle Ages, when the city-state of Pi- sa reached from Genoa, in the North, down the western coast of Italy almost to Rome. It also ruled the offshore islands of Corsica and Sardinia. The gov- erning city was a seaport with its own mighty fleet of trading ships. This was the major source of its wealth, the riches that produced its beautiful buildings, its lavish luxury and its famous Leaning Tower. Pisa's central art treasure w a s a magnificent cathedral built in the neat Romanesque style, with rows of half-circle arches supported on slender columns. At the height of the city's power, it was decided to compliment this beauteous building with a matching bell tower. The plans called for a round tower of pure white mar- ble, with eight tiers of Roman- esque arches and columns- A site near the cathedral was se- lected and work began in the year 1174 soon followed by a problem. The great cathedrals of the Middle Ages were built on the bare ground. Fortunately, the sites selected proved sturdy enough to support the enor- mous masonry. The master builders of the times under- stood the dynamics of stress and strain and often added fly- ing buttresses to achieve struc- tural balance. The builders of Pisa knew these architectural skills. But when selecting the site for their bell tower, they were unlucky. Instead of solid rock suitable for supporting a massive build- tog, the ground below was weak and sandy- It began to shift and the first three tiers tilted to one side. The builders studied the shoddy foundation. Perhaps some favored stopping the project nnd selecting a new site, but if so Ihis sensible sug- gestion was rejected. It was de- cided to strengthen the first three tiers, finish tho building and hope for the best. The tower was completed In 1350. Its eight graceful gal- leries stood feet tall and n stairway of 300 white marble steps led to'the top. But the lower re-enforccmcnts did not fully compensate for tho shifty foundation. Through the cen- turies the famous tower has gradually tilted more than 14 feet from the perpendicular. Its leaning tilt was measured from time to time and many people expected it to topple ages ago. Accurate yearly measurements have been taken since 1918. It is indeed tilting faster but only by one little millimeter a year. Maybe the Leaning Tower of Pisa will fall someday, maybe not- In any case, architects estimate that it will stand for many years, perhaps through even a few more centuries. V Andy sends a World Book Globe to David Jones, age 10, of North Carolina, for his question: How does the sun tan my skin? The body's smooth, water- proof skin does a lot of things we hardly notice. Its worn out cells scuff off the papery thin surface while replacements grow in the thicker layer be- low. This deeper layer is the busy dermis. Networks of nerves and blood vessels twine among its living cells. It has tiny pockets for hair roots and glands that manufacture oils and sweaty moisture. It also has small factories that msnu- facture tanning material- This pigment, or coloring, chemical is brown melanin. The melanin factories happen to be sensi- tive to sunshine. In summer, hours of sun- shine coax the skin to produce extra melanin. The brown pig- ment spreads up through the surface, adding smooth tans or speckled freckles. When the summery sunshine ends, no more extra melanin is added. The brown tinted cells fade or move up to the surface and flake away. However, some melanin remains and adds a creamy' tinge to even the palest skins. Some skins sup- ply more natural melanin, summer and winter. This is what tints them with various shades of brown or black. Questions aSKed by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntlngton Beacb, California 92M8.
