Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID Monday, September 50, 1971- Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon TUESDAY, SEPT. 21 Your birthday today: Prog-, ress in spiritual growth is a feature of your life in the years ahead. Your material progress benefits from unu- sual persona! collaborations. Many incidents require spur of the moment decisions. To- day's natives lend to a keen interest in politics and the workings of society. ARIES (March 21-April Yesterday's story holds up well, but today's seems to be mostly at sixes and sevens, Research brings up unsuspected factors, upsets rationalizations and the- ories. TAURUS (April 20-May 201: Where your own common sense doesn't give you all the an- swers, rely on those you know really care for guidance. No- thing is very clear-cut today- GEMIN1 (May 21 June Your work becomes thoroughly intermixed with other people.

Overdoing is lempLing in all areas of daily living Your hobbies expand at the ex pense of some business or voca- tion, though not of opportunity. LEO (July 23-Aug. Joint efforts deserve your consistent patience and consideration, al- though little gels done beyond the continuation of working fa- cilities and relations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Scpt. Now is no time for quick trades, particularly in prop- erly. Outright sales or gifts should be without strings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Unsatisfactory and insoluble relations and bad habits can be dropped now. Make a clean break with past, go forward into future. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. The inner truth about the feel- ings of others is more acces- sible to you. Accept as human nature your own failings as LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Cliest pains may not be heart Dear Dr. Lamb Is there anything besides heart disease that can cause chest pain? I am 43, female and have had chest pain and a great tightness after lifting, running or any real hard work for about three years. I have been tested by two doctors, had four electro- cardiograms and blood tests. They find nothing and my blood pressure is normal. The pain or tightness comes from one to several hours later, I am really worried not know- ing if it is my heart or if I should be doing something about it. I am about 20 pounds overweight and just over the menopause. I do not get short of breath, but have pain quite often in my left arm and sort of a prickly, electric pain up my neck into my jaw. I also have a lot of stomach gas, bow- el trouble and I cough a lot. X-rays have shown nothing in these areas either. There has never been any heart problem in my family. 1 do not know what fo do. Can you enlighten me? I take no medication ex- cept an occasional aspirin. Two Mast er's electrocardiograms showed a slight irregularity but the doctor said he still didn't think it was my heart. Dear Header Yes there ere a number of things that can cause cliest pain besides the hnart. If I understand you correctly you moan your diffi- culty occurs several hours after exertion, not during it. I would be a bit more concerned about your problem if it occurred while you were exerting your- self. Gas trapped in the colon, where it makes a turn under the diaphragm can cause chest pain 'and also pain in the arm. Muscular can also cause chest pain. One of the most troublesome causes is spasm of the esophagus which causes difficulty almost identi- cal to heart pain. The x-rays will be negative in this condi- tion, too, unless the spasm ac- tually occurs while the examin- ation is being done. Your reference to Master's electrocardiogram tests tell me that you have been examined with eiercise, and the usual criteria for changes because of heart disease were not found. This is of some importance in helping to rule out the possibil- ity that your recurrent chest discomfort is from your heart. It is less likely for a woman your age to be having heart pain from fatty deposits in the arteries, but certainly not im- possible. You will, however, be having increased changes now that you have finished the men- opause. My best suggestion on the limited information avail- able would be to stop all coffee, tea or cigarettes that you may be using immediately. all contribute to gas and spasm in the digestive tract, aside from their relation to the heart. Start a reducing diet and stick to it. Begin walking a little at first and gradually increase it to one hour a day at a speed ol three miles an hour. These measures may "rprnve your condition a great deal and are also good in preventing future heart disease. well as thosa of others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dtc. Whatever else see that you keep your outer calm so as not to rlislract peo- ple and still maintain your pro- tection against unfair competi- tion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Reach out for companion- ship, putting aside concern over career issues and finan- cial schemes. B e sociable, share a lively evening. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Fcb. Your sense of humor de- serves the finest cultivation, along with some discretion in letting the faulty or unrealistic plans of others pass for sub- stance. PISCES (Feb. 19-Marcli Diverging from your accus- tomed path may be either a branch into something new and very useful or a detour. Find out which it is before you get in too deeply. Cancer vaccines idea ruled out VENICE, lUly (AP) A leading virus vaccine scientist Saturday threw cold water on the outlook for cancer Vaccines. Polio pioneer Dr. Albert SabiB told leukemia specialists that "as a virologist 1 have a right to say there has been too much emphasis on viruses and too lit- tle emphasis on the very large number of tumors in which there is no evidence for now ol any associated virus." As chairman of (lie final ses- sion of the International Sym- posium on Comparative Cancer Research, Sabin said the issue is not to stop cancer virus re- search but to give greater atten- tion to the natural history of he disease. About 400 delegates from 26 countries have met for 40 hours, discussing the intricacies of life at the sub-celMar level and ex- periments involving leukemic mice. Sabbin suggested several ave- nues which have been neglected because of the attention to new basic information about DNA and RNA which has excited the scientific world. One example he cited was an old study in the United States in which inbred mice which rou- tinely get cancers were put on a subsistence diet instead of being allowed to eat all they wanted. The fat ones got cancers and died young. The lean ones lived longer and only 15 per cent got cancers in contrast to 80 to 90 per cent of the others. "Nothing more has lieen done with it. It's a terribly important thing to analyse this in as much depth as you are analysing tran- scriptase." Reverse transcriptase is the name given a cell enzyme which appears to be involved in genetic Instructions in some ani- mal cancer viruses. Because its discovery upset genetic dogma it is a hot issue in molecular bi- ology at the moment.

Certain protozoa b've secretly inside ordinary-sized plants, aniiuals and even peo- ple. But all of nature's children must have food, even the tiny protozoa that are too small for our eyes to see.

Some of the midget types live inside larger plants) and animals and thrive on food prepared by their hosts. A snake may be able to gulp down a meal bigger than he is. But most of nature's children must take their food in small helpings. And of all things, the I world of tiny protozoa is popu- lated mill even tinier living things. There are teeming bac- teria, miniature molds and al- gae and even midget cousins of lobsters and other larger crea- tures. Water and soil also teem with scraps of decayed plants and animals. Most protoyoi live on these morsels of plant or animals food, alive or dead. Among the protozoa them- selves, there are mousy mid- gets and whopping giants.

TRY TO VISUALIZE A 5VNKJWEP TOULOUSE- L.AUTREC IN HIS JOCKEY SHORTS! BLONDIE-By Chic Young lives. A giant protozoa may 3-25th of an inch wide big enough for our eyes to see. The midgets measure to an inch. The medium sizes range from 200 to 300 times larger than the midgets. To an average protozoa, one of his midget cou- sins equals about a human- sized meal. So does an average- sized bacterium, or a tiny green alga or a fungus-type yeast cell. Most protozoa live freely and make their own livings. Some flow along like moving blots of jelly, engulfing food as they go. Others wave hairy threads to capture scraps of floating food, One of these protozoa may en- gulf a bacterium, which goes into a tiny little stomach called a food vacuole. While the bac- terium is being digested, the hungry little hunter may engulf a yeast or an alga cell, a smaller protozoa or a scrap of decayed meat or vegetable. In- side the average protozoa, there may be several food va- cuoles stuffed mth meals at various stages of digestion. Other protozoa do not hunt for a living. Some types manu- facture at least part of their food from minerals and other chemicals dissolved in water or moist soil. Other types live as parasites, helping themselves to food they did not capture or prepare. A few of these para- site protozoa harm the cells of larger plants and animals. But most of them do no harm, and some even pay for their board and lodging by helping their hosts to digest certain foods and perform other useful du- ties.
