Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHMIDGE HEUAID Friday, Octobir 30, 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, OCT. 31 Your birthday today: Con- solidation, practical, applica- tion are your most useful ap- proach to life in the year ahead. What you have been learning .over the past few years comes together. You gather resolve and momen- tum to overcome limitations of long standing. Recently de- veloped r e 1 a tionships face consider able stress, older ones quiet down. Today's na- tives frequently show un- usually great physical strength, at other times strong executive talents. ARIES (March 21-April Your own enterprises, are the more dependable path, al- though group matters are worth doing. Check facts thoroughly. Evening is excel- lent for a party. TAURUS (April 20 Slay LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Alcohol Poor Teammate For Diet's Restrictions Do you have a drug habit? If you use alcohol regularly you do. Nearly 80 per cent of Am- erican men and over 60 per cent of American women use alcohol. Alcohol is a good drug to ele- vate one's mood, to relieve an- xiety or as a sedative. It also is a good disinfectant. Other than that, alcohol is a harmful drug. It is NOT good for the heart, as some believe. A single cocktail activates stores of adrenalin products and continue on a diet if they have an evening cocktail each night. Dr. Timothy Regan of New- ark, N.J., demonstrated that af- ter eight weeks of drinking 12- 16 ounces of Scotch daily, there was evidence of heart damage and an increased lieart rate. This was seen in healthy, well- nourished men. Often the heavy drinker doesn't get enough of the right food and this adds to the problem. If you must drink a good deal, at least be sure your heart rate before and 3 minutes after a Martini am you'll see what I mean. Alcohol is said to be a facto in over half of our highwa deaths. It first relieves anxiel and inhibitions by its action o the brain, then begins to affec motor actions, such as speed walking and driving. The dail cocktail eventually destroys number of brain cells and, un less you have a lot to spare, may permanently affect your brain function. You may have heard that a cohol is not fattening. Nonsense Alcohol, ounce for ounce, con tains nearly as many calories as fat and practically twice a many calories as pure carbo- hydrate or protein. Moreover because it reduces willpower and stimu 1 a t e s the appetite most people cannot adhere to restricted calorie intake and drink alcohol. I have not been successful in getting people to Baby Food Standards Proposed WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Food and Drug Administra- tion has proposed an order that would set federal standards foi baby food labelling. Also required would be i manufacturers' statement on in- fant formulas designed as sub- stitute for human milk- The statement would have to be made when the product fel below federal standards for pro- tein, fat, vitamins and minerals. Strained vegetables, fruits and meats in baby foods would have to be labelled as to their ingredients and, where applica- ble, the animal or plant source. But quantity listings would only apply to formulas; in other baby foods, only ingredient names would be needed. 22-Year RCMP Officer Missing o GILLAM, Man. (CP) Sgt. J. A.

It will not prevent damage, how- ever, if you are a chronic user of alcohol, but it may minimize it. Many alcoholics develop cirr- hosis of the liver. Others de- velop severe heart failure. I have seen many men with heart failure, including shortness of breath, swollen ankles, a belly full of fluid, recover complete- ly after alcohol was withdrawn. Unfortunately, too often they re- turned to the bottle and even- tually to the hospital. Leave nothing to chance; clear off the weekend chores prompt: ly. Then take a break, or at least a change of direction. Your sense of humor makes all the' difference. GEMINI (May 21 June You are in your natural pat- tern today. Enjoy diversity of activity, coincidences. The eve- ning is for clowning and fun, but remember there's a serious undercurrent. CANCER (June 21 July Your feelings encompass things that are not spoken, so other people don't quite understand where you are going with crea- tive projects. This evening en- joy being a spectator.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Confusing circumstances are no problem unless you are dis- tracted from serious efforts. Creative ventures are top prior- ity for the moment. Evening parties are an art, loo. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Pursue your goals diligently while others are intrigued by changing situations. Shortcuts, for a change, really save time and effort. Enjoy yourself this evening. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. If you really want to stay on the path, be clear in saying so; do whatever is needed to con- firm your plans. Test and dis- card encumbrances without re- gard for nostalgia. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Discretion continues to be essential to your projects. You are susceptible to wishful think- ing, misleading appearances. Share decisions with associ- ates. CAPRICORN (Dec. 2J Jan. Friends are ready for ac- tion each with his own idea of what should be done. Get an early start and stay ahead of them.

BLONDIE-By Chic Young Andy sends a World Book Globe to V. Michael Bove, age 9, of. Lancaster, Pennsyl- vania, for his question: Who made the first postage stamp?

In a presentation to the Com- mons labor committee, the com- mission said that even if all em- ilaoyers should drop income- srptection plan would be million. The increase would bring the estimated cost of the sickness, iregnancy and retirement bene- its outlined by the white paper o ?210 million in 1972. rrab Money Bags From Guards QUEBEC (CP) Two lasked men armed with pistols ook money sacks from Brink's xpress Co. guards in the pro- incial department of revenue uilding Thursday and escaped ith at least police said. The bandits took the money in corridor of the Upper Town lilding and escaped in a stolen ar driven by a woman or a an dressed as a woman. Police said they found the get- vay car four blocks from the uilding and recovered a gun id an empty money sack. The exact amount stolen was t known, police said, But it as at least The figure is between million and million less than estimates put forward by some employers and private in- surance companies who have presented briefs to the commit- tee during hearings on the white paper. OPPOSE EXTRA BENEFITS The private companies, op- posed to the inclusion of the extra benefits in the plan, warned that many employers would drop their own plans and dump the extra costs on the un- employment insurance fund. The white paper is based on the assumption that private plans will continue in effect in most cases, if only because many are the result of collec- tive bargaining between em- ployers and strong unions. Such an assumption led the commis- sion to estimate that costs for the new benefits would be only million in 1972, the first full year of operation for the revised plan. Bernard Larose, an actuary on loan to the commission from ;he department of insurance, of- fered the committee a variety of reasons for the discrepancies >etween estimates of the cost. The most dire predictions, he said, appear to be based on the assumption that benefits paid >ut by the commission would be as great as those provided by jrivate plans. In fact, benefits penny. It was a black stamp with a white portrait of young Queen .Victoria and white let- ters that spelled out "Post- 'age, One Renny." Everybody loved the idea and other coun- tries soon started making post- age stamps of their own. the first United States postage stamps were made in 1847. People started collecting postage stamps almost as soon as they were invented. In 1860, 110 years ago, an English schoolboy- had a collection of almost 400 different stamps. When stamp collecting first be- came fashionable, people swapped for the ones they vanted. Later they kepi, the ones that were hard to find. Now a rare stamp is worth a fortune. Collectors call the first stamp the Penny Black and na- turally it is very valuable. The rarest stamp is called the Penny Magenta. It was mailed in British Guiana, 124 years ago. Its cost then was one penny its value now is about Questions assed by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648.

GRAND OPENING SPECIAL! SPECIAL PRICE IN EFFECT TILL SATURDAY CLOSING, OCT. 31st! LILYDALE FRYING CHICKEN CENTRE VILLAGE MALL Benson: Good Armed Forces Need Proved TORONTO (CP) Finance Minister Edgar J. Benson said here the Quebec crisis has proved the need for maintaining active armed forces in Canada. Mr. Benson made the com- ment in reply to a suggestion that the government would do tetter to cut back its spending on armed rather than raising tax levels. The suggestion for a spending cutback came while the finance minister was speaking to the So- ciety of Industrial Accountants of Canada. Mr. Benson said many people are fond of suggesting cutbacks In government programs but rarely give constructive sugges- tions on which programs can be reduced. He said the fastest increase in government spending is in the fields of post secondary educa- tion an'1 hospitalization. Speaking about his white paper on taxation, Mr. Benson said the government hopes to have legislation implementing the revised proposals passed by midsummer. The laws would take effect Jan. 1, 1972, he said. Ho said the provinces will have a chance to have their say both before and after the bill is introduced and then will proba- bly have to make changes in their laws to adap'. them to the new federal plan.
