Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IE7HBR1DGH HERALD Solurday, Ssptfmlm IJ, 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SUNDAY, SEPT. 13 Your birthday today: Your coming year is full of mod- erate problems, minor obsta- cles, but nothing that .re- quires drastic changes. Your character develops as you meet with challenges. Take up serious studies in the limited amount of idle time available. Emotional ties become much stronger or fade out. Today's natives are usually interested in the laws of nature, diets, health care. Talent lor mimicry is fre- quent. ARIES (March 21-April Don't let 'your own sudden whims interfere where others are changing their minds at the last minute. Be definite about what you do want, and make sure it happens. TAURUS (April 20 Jlay Later you will recall this vint- age Sunday with nostalgia. Early hours are filled with in- decision, but the emphasis is on a pleasant afternoon and evening. GEMINI (May 21 June This is an enjoyable but dis- organized day. Promises that seem reasonable now will be unfeasible in the changing sit- uation coming shortly. CANCER (Juno 21 July Leave any comment unsaid if you have the slightest reserva- tion or doubt. Later you will find a broader perspective and be glad of your self-restraint. LEO (July 23 Aug. An early start with definite plans will succeed, but be sure everybody knows what is sup- posed to happen. Pastimes are happiest on familiar grounds. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Take time for a brief rest this Sunday. Patience with the rest- less whims of others Is essen- tial. Meditation this evening brings guidance. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Today you meet limitations, and may find helpful solutions merely by failing to see old is- sues as problems. Evening brings a quiet personal tri- umph. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Give everybody benefit of doubt today. The reasons for many deeds may escape you altogether. It is more impor- ant to follow tradition than press for material progres now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dc Enjoy a comfortable Sun day. Nothing is gained by for ing issues and imposing dec sions. Information is misleat ing. Adopt a picnic spirit. CAPRICORN (Dec. h Jai Your imagination no runs ahead of the chance put ideas into effect. Refres your inner nature. See the wo der of nature and her pattern in all things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 F cl Take the path of leas resistance for the moment. D the simplest available amen ties. Save your comments fo later. Home life is best this evening. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20 Overly detailed plans fall apar today. Nobody seems to be o time or stay with decisions Emotional considerations ou weigh logic. 1970, Newsday, Inc. MONDAY, SEPT. 14 Yonr birthday today: There is just enough compe- tition and resistance to your efforts this coming year to B.C. Department Stores Show Sharp Sales Drop VANCOUVER (CP) Un- employment and uncertainty resulting from British Colum- bia's long summer of labor strife has resulted in a sharp drop in department store sales of non-essentiai goods. Department store officials say sales of such non-essential items as furniture, appliances and high-fashion clothing are "off seriously." At the same time they report hefty in- creases in sales of food and staples and of leisure-time items, including books and sporting supplies. "A lot of people are getting little more careful in the way they spend their consumer dol- said an executive with Simpsons-Sears Ltd. "The mon- ey's there but they don't want to part with it too easily." "But even people on strike will buy fishing tackle. They'll buy tents rather than camper trailers and small boats instead of large boats. And if they buy a motor, they'll get the inex- pensive, less powerful one." Figures released recently by the Dominion Bureau of S'tatis- are-just not moving off the racks. In women's wear, linge- rie, belts and scarves far out- sell dresses and coats." "Women's wear is faced with a particular problem this said Mr. Hudson. "And that is indecision as to which way fashion is going. "Women have two reasons for not buying new clothes. One is economic and the othar is resistance to long skirts." He said he felt that if wom- en could afford to be more generous, then they would not hesitate to try the midi hem length. In the first six months of 1970, retail sales in B.C. in- creased .7 per cent from the comparable 1969 period. But a month-by-month analysis of bu- reau of statistics figures, show an almost unbroken decline in sales since January, when sale were up a hefty 13.4 per cen In February, sales were u only 3.7 per cent from Feb ruary, 1969. In March the were up .08 per cent, up 2.8 pe cent in April, then dropped 3.' per cent below the 1969 leve in May and were down 3.6 pe cent in June. Most store managers predict ed a sharp improvement ir sales once the uncertaintie surrounding labor disputes ar resolved. "There definitely has to be an said one man ager.
