Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 5, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY, SEPT. 3 Your birthday today: This coming year includes many Incidents, of sudden and un- expected change. Be ready to move with developing situa- tions. Earning should im- prove somewhat, depending the way you meet the chal- lenges. Social activity (in- cluding romantic interest) fills every idle moment. To- day's natives are self-suffi- cient, able to do many kinds THE DOCTOR SAYS Inflaniatioii Is Part Of Body's Defences By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. An oldsters arthritis and a teen agers acne are both ex- amples of inflammation, a re- action that is part of the body's natural defenses. Every inflam- matory reaction has four com- ponents which may be present in varying intensity. These are pain, swelling, localized heat and redness. The redness and heat result from an increased amount of blood in the involved part. The swelling is due to congestion and the out pouring b{ lymph in the area. The pain is caused by the resulting pressure on the local nerve endings. This chain reaction may ultimately lead to loss of function and de- struction of the affected tissues. It is generally believed that inflammation is triggered by foreign matter reaching the tissues from within or by trau- ma from the outside. In either case, large (mast) cells hi the connective tissue burst and re- lease histamine and serotonin. These and other substances cause dilation of and leakage from the capillary blood ves- sels. Certain defense mechanisms help to counteract inflamma- tion. One is the development of immune bodies in the blood. An- other is the ameba like action of the white blood cells known is phagocytes which engulf in- vading germs. Supplementing your natural defenses are such drugs as as- pirin for the pain, the cortisone group to reduce the inflamma- tory reaction and. antibiotics to suppress or kill the germs that act as a cause or complicaton of the inflammation. Although your doctor today is much better equipped to con- trol your inflammatory dis- eases than he was in the past, the search for improved meth- man'-s face and neck to be very red all the time? Is there any cure for this? A In some men this is normal variation but your doc- tor should rule out such causes as sensitivity to the actinic rays of the sun; alcoholism' carbon monoxide poisoning; too much blood hardening of the arteries; cer- tain heart, kidney and skin dis- eases; reaction to various drugs, notably barbiturates, sul- fonamides, chlorpromaz i n e. phenylbutazone and the tetra- cyclines'' lupus erythematosus; or even a tight collar. The treat- ment would depend on the of work, particularly that re- lated to cameras. ABIES (March 21-ApriI In a relatively quiet day, go a little beyond your .usual rou- tines.

Development Of Missile System Hits Milestone WASHINGTON (AP) De- velopment of the' Safeguard anti-ballistic missile system has reached a significant milestone with its first interception of a missile in space, but the ulti- mate test remains five years away. A Spartan missile fired Fri- day from a mid-Pacific test siet on Kwajalein Atoll intercepted a Minuteman I ballistic missile nose cone high over the Pacific and above the earth's atmos- phere. It was the first time the Spar- tan was fired at an actual tar- get and guided by its new and complex missile site radar, the defence department said Mon- day. In previous tests, Spartans were fired only at points in the demonstrated the missile site radar's ability to track an in- coming missile and guide Spar- tan to its target. In this case, it was a single nose cone and not a multiple warhead such as would be expected in an actual attack. The Safeguard system also wii be aided by its perimeter acquisition radar, which is being designed to pick up enemy missiles when they first appear over the horizon minutes after launch. However, because of its size and complexity, it will be impossible to fully test the radar and the completed Safeguard system until the first Vandenberg Air near Santa Bar- site is installed at Grand Forks. In describing Friday's test, Pentagon officials said the Spar- tan intercepted a Minuteman nose cone launched miles away from Force Base, bara, Calif. Ground tracking instruments "indicated that the Spartan's final stage, which in an opera- tional situaiton would carry nuclear warhead, flew close enough to the target nose cone to have caused its officials said. Neither the Spartan nor the target nose cone carried explo- sive warheads. New Police Act BIRDS HAVE SCARY CREAMS.

A threatened strike by police, firemen and prison guards was averted at the last minute in May when they accepted a gov- ernment offer of a monthly increase in annual wages of to and the promise of a new police act. The previous act had been un- changed for 99 years. It forbids policemen to strike or become members of labor unions. The old act also forbade strikes. The new act provides for bar- gaining rights and non-binding arbitration. Chief Dwyer, who was ap- pointed assistant chief in June, 1966, said in an interview he would work hard to develop good relations between his men and the public and one of the first steps would be to remove policemen from parking meter duty.
