LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Since you haven't the full pic- ture most of the day. why not wait a bit before stepping in to dp anything to change it? Be evening, you have emerged into an easier phase, with a clear view. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. You suffer from im- patience, then a rush of energy which is misdirected tor a lew hours.

PISCES (Feb 19 March This is not the day to go plunging into new programs, large projects. Decisions made on the spur of the mo- ment set up future games you'd be just as well off mis- sing. (1973. The Chicago Tribune) Oddities in the news THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 by Charles schulz NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The City of Nashville decided recently to purchase the city's privately-owned bus system for million. But at ceremonies marking the transfer of ownership on the steps of City Hall Wednesday, none of the city officials could produce the city's cheque. "It was sort of a letdown for said Carmack Cochran, an official of the transit com- pany. "That would have been the highlight of the ceremony." Cochran says he now ex- pects to sell the transit com- pany to the city later this month. The problem all began when it was discovered that city of- ficials in charge of getting the cash forgot to get city council authorization.

India (AP) About professional blood donors in the Calcutta area have unionized to de- mand higher prices. State government hospitals now pay 20 rupees for about one-half pint of blood. The Association of Blood Donators is _demanding 75 rupees or about Such a raise is essential, the association said, because of inflation that has lowered the donors' buying power. TAYLOR, Mich. (AP) eight-month. 120-pound St. Bernard probably has the only air-conditioned dog house in this town. "He really needed said Mrs. Abe Jones. Tigre's owner. A recent heat wave caused the dog to develop several "hot-spots" on its stomach, which Mrs. Jones said were painful. She said the dog's condition required tranquillizers, lotions and antibiotics. Mr. Jones decided an air conditioner would be cheaper than continual treatment. He installed a air con- ditioner in the dog house. MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Michael Herrara, 15, has gone as far as anybody can go in the boy scouts. Herrara just earned his 118th merit badge, the total number of badges possible. The more common badges came easy, but cotton farm- ing took some initiative. And snow skiing for a lad living in Miami was a longshot at best. Michael went to Pensacola to Observe a cotton farm and returned to study insects and pesticides used in the in- dustry. When word got to Eastern PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) A crowd of about 200 young persons gathered at the Bay County sheriff's office Wednesday for the public burning of "about worth of marijuana. "I never thought it would draw that kind of said Sheriff Tullis Easterling. "We announced the public burning after confiscating all that stuff Over the last few months. But we didn't know we would get this kind of a crowd." Easterling said his audience seemed disappointed at the day's calm breeze but remain- ed orderly throughout the bur- ning. "A few of them kept telling us to blow the smoke their way." he said, "but we ig- nored them."

Ask Andy A DISPUTE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to John Jordan, age 12, of Saint Paul, Minnesota, for his ques- tion: Who first sailed around the world? A short answer to this ques- tion is likely to start a heated dispute especially in Por- tugal, Spain or England. You would think that history could supply the name of the first person who sailed around the world. But opinions differ. Some say that he was a renow- ned Portuguese navigator. Others give the credit to a crew of Spanish sailors. Englishmen insist that the first captain who circum- navigated the globe was their 'Sir Francis Drake. The trouble with this inno- cent looking question is that it can be given three different meanings. We can award the credit to the crew of Ordinary sailors who first sailed clear around the world. Or we can name the first captain who navigated a complete voyage around the globe. Or, and this is rather complicated, we can award the honors to a captain who went halfway around in one direction, then made a later voyage halfway around in the opposite direction. Each of these claims to fame has a different answer. However, we can be sure of one thing. We know what ship first voyaged clear around the world and returned safely hack home. She was the Spanish sailing vessel the Vit- loria. On September 20, 1519, five Spanish ships sailed from Spain with 240 men. Only 18 men and one ship, the Vit- loria, returned. This most famous expedition was cap- tained by the renowned Por- tuguese navigator. Ferdinand Magellan. He was employed by Spain to find a westbound ocean route to the East Indies. From the Atlantic, he sailed through the hazardous Strait of Magellan into the Pacific Ocean. The voyage took a heavy toll but three ships managed to reach the Philip- pines. There Magellan became involved in a local skirmish and was killed. The voyage ahead cost more lives and two more ships. Finally, on September 6. 1522. the Vit- toria. captained by Juan Seba- sian del Cana with a crew of 17 survivors, returned to Spain. There is no doubt that del Cana and the surviving crewmen of the Vittoria were the first to voyage clear around the world. But, to many old-time mariners, the only sailors worth mentioning were the captains who navigated ships. On a previous cast bound voyage to the Eiast Indies. Magellan had crossed the longitudes of the Philip- pines. The two voyages overlapped. Hence many peo- ple claim that he was the first to sail around the world though he completed the cir- cle in two sections. Not so. say the British. This great honor goes to Sir Fran- cis Drake, the first captain who circumnavigated the globe on a single voyage. Drake left England on December IS. 1577. After a leisurely voyage all the way around the world he returned home on September 26. 1580. There arc as you see, three possible answers and you can take your pick. Some people still give the credit to Magellan, who made the rour.ii trip in two overlapping voyages. The English favor Drake, whose single voyage circled the globe. Both these claims forget del Cano and his lew surviving ordinary sailors. They sailed all the way around the world half a century before Francis Drake set sail from England. by dik browne ALL E OF 4, FAILEP 5HOU) AN'TELL.' NQlij, I'LL oET BAP 6RAPES ALL -EAR AMPNEV'Ef?
