Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 12 Your birthday today: Your life this year is an encounter with destiny more than a matter of personal planning. Your freedom in most matters is principally your choice of how you are going to respond to events beyond your control. Whatever enterprise you have been pursuing comes to test, survives according to its inherent merits. Today's natives have an abiding interest in the phenomena of nature. ARIES (March 21-April 11 a weak spot exists, it is almost certain to show up today. There is very little point in extended comments: let the record speak for itself. TAURUS (April 20-May Much as it seems you must settle for something or other, leave the way open for revision. Creative ventures shared with others encounter delays, temporary rejections. GEMINI With the outside world at odds, you'll be happy in know- ing it's only temporary. Make a vacation-excursion sort of experience of it all without going anywhere. CANCER Tact goes quite a way, then you come to a point of having to say "no" to something or somebody. Keep clear of talkative tirnewasters. Attend to self-interests. LEO (July 23-Aug. Minor disputes needn't be pur- sued, unless you've really' decided, after serious con- sideration, to break off connections. There's a subtle factor you do not understand. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Make do with short-term com- mitments, leaving long-range contracts for further preparation. Your mate or a friend may oppose some pet scheme; be willing to com- promise. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. It's one of those days when everything seems wrong-side- to, until you sense the inner meaning the larger environ- ment is trying to tell you. Then it all becomes instruc- tive. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Something has to give, and like as not, it's your schedule first, then other matters you had expected would hold steady. Be clear in your com- munion with loved ones. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Expecting friends to do specific things is un- realistic today; everybody has his own inspiration which seems to deny your im- mediate participation. Don't shirk responsibility. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Things mechanical and electrical are apt to malfunc- tion. Appointments slip away from planned times, cause minor problems later. What you achieve now is per- manent. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Adversity clarifies any question as to who is and who is not your friend you find out today. Ask nobody to do more than you are willing to do yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Use caution, yet make no great fuss about it. Anything you do now attracts attention or comment. The less ex- planation you make, the more effective your efforts will be. (1973. The Chicago Tribune) Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear. Dr. valuable is Atromid-S (clofibrate) to the health and elimination of excess cholesterol in a woman's body? 1 am in my 60s and my doctor says I must take Atromid-S twice everyday in order to keep my cholesterol level down. I also have hardening of the arteries and have had dizzy spells at times. When I leave Atrbmid-S off my dizziness goes away. Do I get toxic to it or what? I also take a nicotinic acid tablet when I need it for dizziness. It helps me some. Is there anything else I could take to lower my cholesterol and help with my hardening of the arteries that's better than Atromid-S and which would not cause me to be dizzy? I do not mind tak- ing medicine, but I do not want any if I do not need it, and especially when it causes me to be dizzy. I can't even focus my eyes. That is true. Otherwise, I am in very good health, enjoying living and what work I'm capable of doing. Dear is a very good medicine and has been useful in lowering the cholesterol in many people. Like most other medicines, it can cause side effects in some people. Atromid-S can Cause dizziness, but I do not know whether your dizziness is caused by Atromid-S, or whether it's caused by your hardening of the arteries itself, which can also cause this problem. Your statement that you don't have dizziness when you don't take Atromid- S and that you do when you take it. strongly suggests that it is the Atromid-S. You should talk to your doctor about this and. perhaps, with a period of testing off the medicine, you can find out for certain whether the Atromid- S is related to your problem or whether it's really caused by your atherosclerosis and its affect on the balance centers and mechanisms responsible for dizziness. You didn't mention your weight, but in general anyone who has any significant amounts of fat deposits under (heir skin Can decrease the cholesterol and blood fat level HAGAR THE HORRIBLE by adequate weight reduction. This is often not as successful as it could be because patients never really lose all of their excess fat. To achieve the maximum benefits from fat reduction it's necessary to lose almost all of it. Otherwise, it's like trying to treat a severe diabetic with a very small dose of insulin. Although in- sulin is a wonderful medicine, small doses will not control severe diabetes, and similarly, eliminating only a small amount of obesity will not significantly decrease blood fat and cholesterol levels. If you have evidence of fat around the small of the back or around the navel un- derneath the skin, there are pounds you could lose. Despite the value of medicines in lowering cholesterol. I don'tbelieve that (hey are replacement for proper prevention of obesity and adjustment of the diet along the lines that have been recommended to prevent atherosclerosis. If these measures are properly carried out, medicine is often not necessary. Doctors sometimes give medicine in desperation because their patients will not stay on the type of diet which will control their obesity and blood fat or cholesterol levels. Unfor- tunately, it is easier to give a pill than to teach people proper nutrition. Many patients would rather take a pill than do something about their eating habits Although I am happy to en- dorse the proper use of medicines. I am not in favor to using them as substitute for correcting living patterns, which includes proper diet, body fat reduction, proper physical activity, and elimina- tion of harmful habits, such as smoking cigarettes.

Ask Andy PEANUTS Tutsday, September 11, LETHBRIDGE HERALD by Charles schulz PLANKTON Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Beyerlv Michael, age 12, of Des Moines, Iowa, for Jier question: What exactly is plankton? This may come as a sur- prise. But none of us could survive without a watery world of miniature plants and animals, too small to be seen. These teeming specks of life cover almost half the surface of the globe, sometimes to a depth of feet. Together they make up the plankton that thrives in all fresh and salty sunlit waters. Together they supply most of the breathable oxygen in the air, plus the basic food that sup- ports all the creatures that live in the world-wide ocean. A glass of clear water from a quiet pond is not what it seems to be. If you hold it in front of a page of white paper, you may see swarms of tiny shadows, smaller than pin- points. Many of these mini- specks of life are members of the plankton populations that thrive in all streams, lakes and seas. The most numerous plankton populations are single celled alga plants. Others are single celled animals. Some of the larger plankton personalities are as big as wheat grains and pumpkin seeds. Among the giants are shrimpish crustaceans that measure all of two inches. Jellified eggs and baby larvae of all the larger fishes in the sea also float around in the great mass of teeming plankton. More than half of the mix- ture is made up of tiny diatoms. These oen-celled alga plants live inside silica shells designed like ornate lit- tle jewel boxes. Other single called plankton plants include species of colored and phosphorescent algae. They are too small to be visible. But when conditions are right, their population explosions add tinges of green or blue, brown or red to the water. Life in the sea depends on symbiosis, a never ending give-and-take between plants and animals. Plankton plants absord dissolved minerals and use the energy of sunlight to manufacture their own food. In the process they use carbon dioxide, provided by plankton animals. They also add un- countable tons of breathable oxygen to the water and the atmosphere. In the hungry ocean, the rule is eat or be eaten. The beautiful plankton meadows are feeding grounds for small, large and still larger creatures of the sea. The base of this food chain includes teeming plankton populations of miniature plants and animals. For example, copepods are pinhead-sized crustaceans. They are devoured by frisky splinter sized arrowworms which are devoured by whiskery comb jellies, which are the size of blackberries. All life in the sea depends directly or indirectly on basic plankton food. A typical lunch for a humpbacked whale may be about one ton of silvery herrings. Each herring may have lunched on perhaps 6.000 copepods. Each copepod con- sumed perhaps 130.000 pretty little diatoms. Of course, ail sorts of other large and small sea dwellers dine on herrings and all of them trv to eat each other. IT'S KNOT NECESSARY, of course, but somebody decid- ed the "Studious Blacksmith" in front of the Carnegie Library in Pittsburg should be more formal. He's been studying there for 83 years (slow learner, Publisher acquitted ATHENS (Reuter) A Greek court martial has ac- quitted four prominent Greeks, including exiled publisher Helen Vlachos, of anti-national activities abroad, a newspaper reports. The paper Vradyni says the Athens court martial last June examined the cases of former cabinet ministers Constantine Mitsotakis and George Mylonas and publishers Helen Vlachos and Panes Kokas, all living in exile abroad. The newspaper says the court examined the cases in absentia and cleared the four defendants of all charges against them. Pun with figures By J. A. H.
