Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SATURDAY, SEPT. 15 Your birthday today: Whatever you have done throughout life brings reper- cussions all year; some are very good, others a bit dif- ficult. All of them are suscep- tible to constructive application. Following early challenges, your material position in the world promises to wind up relatively well ad- vanced. Today's natives work hard, but are not always at ease in large social groups, public affairs. ARIES (March 21-April Impulse spending quickly separates you from your money; you have little to show for it, or something of tem- porary interest only. Social activity should be lively. TAURUS (April 20-May Agreement on broad outlines is enough to achieve; on details there isn't likely to be any, unless the special per- sonal views and problems of others are taken into account. GEMINI (May 21-June Try letting people arrange or figure out things for themselves. Avoid competi- tion with those you cherish. Communications invite detail- ed attention, produce high results. CANCER (June 21-July Begin early, with all the energy at your disposal. As the day wears on. co-operation lags, and nothing can be done about it. Find diversion, unac- customed pastimes. LEO (July 23-Aug. Not an easy day, with some conflict likely between what you'd like to do and what you must do for your own best interests. Amateuruadvice is especially suspect. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Differences between expec- tations and reality run deeper than surface appearances in- dicate. Being alone can be in- convenient, dependent on chance, requires continual alertness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Your energy increases in response to recent tension and stimulation. In setting matters to rights in and around home, beware of proceeding more harshly than is called for. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Spend the day tidying up, con- solidating your position where il is a little more and you may overreach yourself. Collect what is coming to you; add what you can to resources. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Be helpful; see how it gets you involved. Then mention a long-past and sup- posedly settled rivalry or dis- agreement. Learn the hard way to let well enough alone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Stay on the surface there is too much social ac- tivity and distraction to get any serious business or research done. Much of the news going around deserves celebration. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Older and younger people alike are under emotional stress. Perhaps you can tide some of them over with pleasantries, diversions, but please, no unsolicited advice. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Much of what you hear and see is provocative you needn't rise to the bait. Give fellow travellers plenty of space and time to manoeuver. Get an early start. (1973, The Chicago Tribune) Flashback SEPT.13, 1973 The Gregorian Calendar was officially adopted by the British Empire and its colonies in America 221 years ago 1752. The calen- dar, devised by Pope Gregory III in 1582, brought the civil year into line with the solar year. The new calendar provided the practice of adding a day to February every four years. were born to the Fischer family in Aberdeen, S.D. 1847--U.S. troops occupied Mexico City.

It never fails to attract attention, they say. Bond joined two bicycles with Coal plants suggested EDMONTON (CP) The money needed to build a natural gas pipeline down the Mackenzie River valley would be adequate to construct, coal gasification plants that would produce the same amount of gas, Dr. Norbert Berkowitz said Wednesday.

No amount of tapering off, no amount of trying to cut down, no drug store aids had any real effect. No advice by doc- tors or friends enabled me to stop the habit. Then one night when I want to bed my leg went numb, and even though I sat up and had a shot of whiskey, I had trouble restor- ing the circulation to my leg. While all of this was going o, I thought about an acquain- tance who had smoked and drank up a storm and was told by his doctors to quit smoking or "off comes that leg." He didn't quit and off came the leg. Then the doctors told him quit or pretty soon off comes the other leg. Well, he did quit smoking, along with breathing, eating and living. My conclusion was simple, damn it man, you are killing yourself. And for what, something you don't even en- joy or want. Then I transferred my outrage to a mythical someone else who was trying to kill me. What do you mean I can't quit? The hell I can't. I just did. Sure it was rough for a couple of weeks, but there was an exhuberant fun along with it. It was a feeling of victory. I did have a mind, I did have the power to simply laugh at the very thought of giving in. It was cumulative. Food tasted better than I had remembered for years. The throat irrita- tion steadily diminished, the sputum I coughed up paled from a dirty brown to pearly white and gradually decreased. If you really want to stop, just get good and stinking mad at the person who is literally killing you. Take it as a per- sonal challenge and see what happens. Dear for sharing your experience. I agree with you that if, psy- chologically, you are able to direct your hostility toward cigarettes and consider them as an outside enemy, that it could help you kick the habit. Individuals devise different ways of helping them to quit and your history is one way which works for some people. I might add that it certainly is true that individuals with cir- culatory problems to the legs, who continue to smoke, can, and do, lose their legs as a result of their cigarette habit. Dear Dr. Lamb Please explain what these two words mean. Hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia. Dear Reader "Hyper" means increased hyperactive child is an overactive child. The ending "emia" refers to blood (anemia means without blood which isn't strictly correct, even for people with this The syllable "gly" comes from glucose or glycogen meaning a type of sugar. Thus, the word hyperglycemia means an increased amount of sugar in the blood. "Lipid" means fat or fat- like, thus hyperlipidemia means increased amounts of fatty substances in the blood. Part of the problem of under- standing medicine is the vocabulary. The language barrier sometimes makes it difficult for patients to un- derstand their doctors. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Ask Andy coal gasification plants. The plants would employ a total of 1.200 men and produce a trillion cubic feet of syn- thetic gas annually, he told the Petroleum Society of the Canadian Institute Of'Mining. The price of the synthetic natural gas would be'73 to 89 cents a thousand cubic feet, about the same as that of Arc- tic gas, and likely below the cost of imported liquified natural gas. TORNADOES Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Michael Rotnicke: age 11, of Mapleton, Iowa, for his ques- tion: Why is a tornado hollow in the middle? The central funnel of a tor- nado is almost an empty vacuum yet this hollow space packs a mighty wallop. Actually, it is a column of thinner-than-thin air, sucking in winds and moveable objects as it rises aloft. For its size, the tornado is the wildest storm in the world and it demonstrates that weather events work somewhat like engines, driven by moving currents of air. This year. Americans had more than their share of destructive tornados. As usual the wild little storms hatched in batches and struck down from cloudy skies. As usual. they formed along weather fronts that built up ahead of advancing cyclones, or low pressure cells. Meteorologists explain that tornados occur in certain regions when weather conditions of this sort create enormous contrasts in temperature and air pressure. Weather fronts tend to create contrasting pockets of warm and cool, light and dense air. In tornado territory, perhaps a downslope wind or some other factor enters the weathery turmoil. In any case, here and there a pocket of very light air forms in the weather front. This small mass of very light air expands, but not through the denser air around it. It rises aloft and the denser air around is pulled in toward the rising column of thin light air. Nature we are told, abhors a vacuum of emp- ty space and even a near vacuum filled with very thin air. A household vacuum cleaner uses a tan to create a near vacuum of thin air. This exerts a pulling force to fill 4he thin space and the pull- ing force drags in the dust. An embryo tornado begins to act like a vacuum cleaner while it is still up there in the cloudy sky. As its hollow centre of thin-air continues to rise, denser air rushes toward it. This creates a circle of THE DOG IS KE6ARPEP AS THE THIS PARTICULAR 5REEP (S GENERALLY QUITE 6ENTLE AMD THIS PARTICULAR V06 15 BOTH GENTLE AMP INTELLIGENT... ALTHOUGH HE DOES HAVE H15 FAULTS...

BEETLE BAILEY by mort walker strong breezes blowing inward toward the rising updraft. The motion of the spinning earth twists these winds to spiral toward the centre. They form a funnel of dark clouds around the hollow in the middle. As this mighty little vacuum engine grows stronger, its dusky funnel dips down to the ground. Several of these dangling funnels may form in an advancing weather front. Fortunately, most of them never get iip enough strength to reach down and touch the ground. But the one that does creates a disaster. Both its hollow centre and its spiraling winds work like engines of destruction. When the hollow centre envelops a building, it sucks up the air and the rooms become near vacuums of low- low pressure. The denser air outside crushes in and causes the walls to collapse. The ris- ing updraft in the centre also can lift people, iceboxes and other objects, carry them along and drop them maybe 100 yards from home. Mean- time the wild winds uproot trees and remove roofs as the air spirals inward to be whisk- ed aloft in the hollow centre. OKAY, WHO'S COMING OUT FOK LET'S GO!
