26 THI IETMKIDGE. HEBAIO Thurfday, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, OCT. 30 Your birthday today: A year begins of unflagging ef- fort with surprisingly good results from normal use of your skills. You do many thills that you are not ac- customed to doing, although you are not likely to change professions now. Romantic experience comes in brief, pregnant episodes rather than a steady relationship that could be taken for granted. Today's natives are candid in their statements, tireless in their work once they have de- cided on a goal. ARIES (March 21-April Now is the time to get agree- ment on joint or marital cial matters.

Adults often ignore the fact that they are on drugs. Yes, we live in a drug culture. Everyone who uses coffee, tea, colas, tobacco and alcohol is really using soft. drugs. You can add to this the most of the sleeping pills ami the tranquilizers. Coffee isn't just a mild drug. It contains caffine which is a powerful stimulant to the brain. It can cause nervousness or make a nervous person more anxious. Using large amounts of coffee five or more cups a day contributes markedly to stimulating the whole body. This may increase the resting heart rate by as much as 20 beats per minute. In some peo- ple it may even cause irregular- ities of the heart. Dr. Oglesby Paul of Chicago reports that this much coffee is associated with a higher rate of heart attacks. Other investi- gators have reported increased outpouring of hormones from the adrenal glands in y o u n g healthy men after drinking moderate amounts of coffee. These are the same hormones that are increased in stress and some think they contribute to artery disease. Coffee also in- creases the amount of danger- ous fats (triglycerides) in the bloodstream. A heavy coffee drinker often has "burning in the pit of the stomach." If the doctor doesn't think.about this frequent cause, tiie patient gets expensive X-- rays of the stomach, gall blad- der and sometimes the colon. These usually show nothing that would account for the patient's complaint. Eventually, the doc- tor decides the patient is ner- vous and prescribes tranquliz- ers. The patient goes home and washes down tranquilizers with several cups of stimulating cof- fee. Usually the problem will go away if coffee is stopped. Some people are particularly sensitive to coffee and even two cups a day can cause them to have stomach trouble. Stopping coffee is easy. You can simply substitute a caffine- free product. You can get it in the freeze-dry form if you wish. If you have been a heavy coffee drinker and stop abruptly, you may have withdrawal reac- tions. These include excessive drowsiness and often a severe headache. The headache can be relieved rath one c.up of regular coffee. For this reason I usually ad- vise cutting down to one cup a day, then stopping coffee al- together or using a caffine- Tea and limited. has then said to mother: "I sucking, a little resh opportunity. 3 for a make serious deals to get very far.

(AP) Drinking water may in the .fu- ture have an additive to prevent certain types of heart disease just as it has to prevent tooth decay. This is the implication of re- search by Dr. A. Wouter Voors of the University of North Caro- lina School of Public Health, presented in a paper today at the American Public Health As- sociation's annual meeting. Voors has studied the relation- ship between the presence of lithium in drinking water and atherosclerotic heart disease in 100 of the largest cities in the country. Atherosclerosis is a de- generative disease of the blood vessels. Discussing his work Tuesday, Voors noted that previous re- search has shown that the cities with the "hardest" water have the lowest incidence of atheros- clerotic heart disease. Water "hardness" is asso- ciated with the amount of met- als in it. One of them is lithium. Voors said it may be desira- ble to add small amounts of ithium to drinking water In areas where it is not present in sufficient amounts as a means of preventing this type of heart disease. Fluorides have been added to the drinking water for a number of years to reduce tooth decay. Voors said his study indicated that atherosclerotic heart dis- ease was more closely relate; to the presence or absence o lithium than any other element.

If a child's costume requires a mask, use makeup to draw one on, the council suggests Cloth or paper masks hamper visibility. If possible, the council sug gests light-reflecting materia be used jji the costume to make children highly visible to driv ers. To prevent fires, the council says costumes should be of flame-proof material or etsi treated with a boric-borax solu tion to reduce the fire hazard. Parents should keep porcnes and doorways clear of tnols or debris that could contribute to falls. Referring to incidents where sharp objects have been embed- ded in apples and other fruit on previous Halloweens, the coun- cil says because of this activity by a "handful of mentally-dis- turbed people parents miftht want to check their chil- dren's loot More the kids get into it." worker bees are about one-fiftl of an inch wide.
