_ THE IETHBRIDGE HEDAIO Thunday, Oitobtr M, 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, OCT. 23 Your birthday today: The Sun enters the sign Scorpio today at p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. In other years the time of change is earlier or later, sometimes on the day before or day af- ter. Both Librahs and Scc- pions bore today face a year of diverse activities which tentpt them to scatter ener- gy. Many jobs which only now begin to exist attract these people skills beyond traditional must be acquired quickly. Today's Libra na- tives are serious dreamers while the Scorpios are al- ways ready to react to unex- pected ar.d pioneering situa- tions. ARIES (March 21-April Today is generally slow-paced. Search for better understand- ing of how things work or what makes things happen. Expect people to be somewhat aloof for the moment. TAURUS (April 20-May Put an early mood of gloom behind you, get busy, then take an extra break for diversion. Thus a long day is not so much a burden and you can admire your results. GEMINI (May 21-June Seek cheerful company, trade secrets with old confidants. A change of pace helps avoid fa- tigue. You must cope with add- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Meal Plan Handbook Guides To Right Eating Let's discuss an "optimal" diet for you. The American Heart Association has a fat- controlled, low -cholesterol meal plan entitled "The Way to a Man's Heart" that will help you. Write or call your near- est heart association and ask them to send you one. If you want a good book of tables list- ing the calorie, fat content and cholesterol value of foods, write to the Superintendent of Docu- ments U.S. Government Print- ing Office, Washington D.C. and request the book, "Compo- sition of Foods Raw, Process- ed, U.S. Department of Agncult u r e, Agriculture Handbook No. 8 Washington, D.C. It costs 1.50. The diet I recommend for adults should contain less than 70 grams of fat and more than 70 grams of protein daily. That is equal to about 3Vfc ounces of beef fat and protein equivalent to about 11 ounces of lean beef. Over half of the daily fat al- lowance should be unsaturated fat. The limitation of fat helps to keep the calorie intake at ac- ceptable levels. To stay at such a low fat level and still eat over 70 grams of protein a day, you can't eat too much margarine of any type or lots of avocados, even though most of their fat content is of the unsaturated type. Your protein intake on a balanced1 diet will entail eating some fat. I also recommend avoiding excess cholesterol (technically less than 450 milligrams You can do this by avoiding egg yolks, butter fat and organ hearts (liver, kidneys, heart, and also limiting shellfish to once a week. Remember, even lean beef and other pro- teL. sources will contain some cholesterol. The rest of the diet should be made up of carbohydrates. The amount of carbohydrate de- pends on how many calories you need. If you need to lose weight, don't add1 too many. He- rn ember, for an adequate amount of food with essential vitamins and minerals, spend your carbohydrate calories on vegetables, cereals and fruits. If you use too much sugar you will eat a lot of calories with- out getting enough essential nu- trients. Be sure to get enough vitamin C, found in fresh fruits and tomatoes. Control your calorie intake to a level to avoid dangerous fat deposits. If you can achieve these goals in your diet you will have done a great deal for your health. Dear Doctor Can you tell who is the father of a baby from a blood test? Dear Header No. Some- times you can tell who is NOT the father. If the child has a different blood type than either the mother or the questionable father, it is clear that some other man must indeed be the real father. However, even if the questionable father and the baby have the same blood type, that does not prove that an- other man with the same blood type wasn't the actual father. ed routine later; save energy for it. CANCER (June 21-July It may be easier to dodge friends than to say no to their schemes one or both, ever, is necessary now. Routine work is strongly favored1. Make a steady effort. LEO (July 23-Aug. "Vind- ing up the workweek seems to be slow. Older people's prob- lems get in the way. Make a thorough job of what you do. Consult separate specialists, get two opinions on all ques- tions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. You are asked for extra ser- vice with no extra reward. Set limits before yo'J kegin; don't be taken for granted. Tact doesn't suffice you must take a definite stand. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Everybody wants to shift the blame; don't pass your own responsibility on or take up that of others. Where principle is not involved, the fuss isn't worth the bother. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. You react more rapidly now than most people around you co-operate better if you give them time to catch up to your quick insights. New sys- tems need further perfection. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. It's not the single Mea you have to sell today, but whole programs. Pause from time to time to maintain your balance, give others a chance to digest the progress. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Some matter in which you once reposed trust tens out to be finished or inadequate. Du- plication of function adds a se- curity factor. Have extras of those things most likely to break AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Fcb. Again your intentions col- lide with the plans of associ- ates who assume that you're going along with, their ideas. They don't know what your reasons are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Allow people the luxury of ar- riving late. They function bet- ter once past their sleepy state. Give thought to your own health care. Regular checkups should be routine. 1970, Newsday, Inc. Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Charles Bur- nette age 11, of S a r a s o t a, Florida, for his question: Does a python really eat only one meal a year? Some people claim that this is quite impossible. But patient observers report that a python can indeed fast for a year and even longer. No doubt the peo- ple who dispute these records tend to regard a snake as if were a limbless mammal. This is far from the truth. A snake can devour a much larger meal at one sitting than a mammal can. His digestive processes are more thorough and the rather lazy character can conserve his food energy for a very long time. In order to get the true story of his feeding and fasting hab- its, the python must be caged in captivity. Otherwise he may slither forth in secret for a few midnight snacks. Reh'able ob- servations of this sort have been made through many years. Per- Medicare Costs Climb OTTAWA (CP) Health care costs climbed at an annual rate of increase of more than eight per cent a year from 1957 until last year the federal health de- partment reports. Spending for hospital, doctors' and dentists' services and for prescribed drugs rose 200 per cent, to million from million. "The combined year-to-year percentage increases for the four principal components of health care costs were never below eight per a depart- ment statement said. An economic analysis showed that spending per person on per- sonal health care climbed to in 1969 from in 1957. The analysis says rises in spending were caused by prices, wage and fee increases, growth of population, changes in the quality of goods and services resulting from advances in med- icine and in greater use of health services.

NORTH A 5 2 EM A BILLIOM FO'AKT AM'CULTURE WHICH AH ISKEBJCT, INTRUSTED ARCHIE-By Bob Montana Children's Auto Seats Offer Little Protection SAN FRANqSCO (AP) A group of pediatricians warns .hat many children's car seats offer little protection in colli- sions and can contribute to inju- ries. At a news conference during the American Academy of Pe- diatrics convention, the New Jersey chapter exhibited what it called both good and bad exam- ples of kiddie car seats. Dr. Seymour Charles of Ir- vington, N.J., said nearly all "papoose plastic car- riers and padded baby seals are inadequate. Seats that simply hook over the back of the seat of the car and those equipped with make- believe steering wheels are among the most dangerous, the doctors said. "Many have sharp-edged, hard, unyielding surfaces and low resistance to the doctors warned. The doctors showed two chil- dren's car seats, both made by major car manufacturers, which they said they approve. Both are restrained by adult scat belts.
