Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 '40 THI IETHBF1DGE HERALD Wednoidoy, 52, 197T Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon THURSDAY, Slil'T. :3 Your birtllday May: Tills afternoon si p.m. East- ern Daylight Time Lhc Sun leaves Virgo, enlers Libra. Both Librans and Virgoans born today are graceful highly intuitive and wary, ad- venturous people. The Li- brans mil travel much more extensively, while the Vir- goans tend to seek service where accuracy is the main factor. ARIES (March 21-April Tact brings its logical result. Accept any benefits gracefully; share with your old familiars. TAURUS (April 20-May Allow for unpredictable moods, fractious behavior. Don't take advantage if it's in your favor; postpone your pitch if it's not. GEIUNI (May 21-June Abrupt decisions cause neglect on important ideas. Wait a bit, lake time for deliberation and deeper study. Asking opinions of others brings little imme- diately useful results. CANCER (June 21-July Life smooths out acording to what you've Iwen seeking. Where you've been reasonable and willing to give and take, things look splendid. LEO (July 23 Aug. Bright surfaces and glil) words do not guarantee anything. Get expert advice, check cut what- ever you're into before you ac- cept its face value. VIRGO (Aug. 22: It's about the last minute for rather important doings you took on some time back. G c t an early slai't. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22 Your use of yesterday's ope ings leads to a sense achievement and merit. Y have added assistance fro surprising sources. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21 See whether you can inspire c operation amongst opponen or people undecided up im now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-De Early busy, Jate lazy take it in stride, leave puzzles for tomorrow. CAPJHL'onN (Dec. 22-Jall. The trick is to balance internal pressures against ex- ternal routines. Have the disci- pline and patience to wait [or other people lo decide before you add extra considerations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Fcb. A heavy duty day winds up cheerfully. Relax among in- teresting, intelligent compan- ions. Even talking shop is all right for once. PISCES (Feb. IMInrrh Diplomacy is needed in prep- aration for quiet but funda- mental changes, improve- ments. Getting overly presonal would hinder your way later. (1971: By The Chicago Tribune) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D Abortion is part of medical history Dear Dr. Lamb A few years ago I had a self-induced septic abortion followed by a D and C (dilatation and curet- tage o( the I am prepar- ing for surgery now and have not mentioned this to my gyne- cologist. Is tin's an important part of my past medical history and should I tell him? Dear Reader Of course it is important. A doctor is handi- capped enough dealing with the complexities of illness and the human body without the prob- lem, of not getting a complete itory of the patient's past ill- nesses. You want your doctor lo be prepared to do the best possible for you. Let him de- cide something is important. I am always a little sad about women and abortions, particularly the real dangers that some women expose them- selves to. The trip to some seamy apartment house or the trips across the border are all real dangers to a woman's health. So are most self-induced efforts. Obviously there is no good answer to the problem. I do think however for those who insist on having an abortion that it would be much better to have it done in a reputable professional setting with mod- ern medical facilities than vffider conditions that may cause permanent injury or even death. For those who need facts I would recommend David Hen- din's little fact book entitled "Everything You Need to Know About published Pinnacle Books. I consider this lillle book solid blow agajnsl the sord practices of the criminal el ment which sometimes flou ishes around voluntary abo tion. Dear Dr. Lamb Pleas explain the term "fairly larj hiatal hernia present with r flux." This is Ore result of G.I. series that I had done. Dear Reader The x-ra; of your stomach showed that portion of the stomach was her niated through the diaphragm A considerable amount of th barium mixture you swallowec was easily regurgitated back ward from the stomach b the diaphragm into the herni portion above the diaphragm o into the lower esophagus tub that joins the stomach at Ilia region. These are fairly com mon. Some cause symptoms including chest pain and ind gestion. others seem to caus no problem. I once saw a fairly larp hernia of the stomach throug a hole in the diaphragm of young jet test pilot. He was on if the best pilots. He was in th final phase of his medical ex animation to enter the astro- naut program when the hemi was discovered by x-ray exam inalion. Imagine liis surpris and ours too, since he had beei flying without trouble for year and had been examined eac] fear as required for pilots. GOREN ON BRIDGE B7 CHARLES H.

How- ever, there are occasions when It is not only not a blunder to present declarer with en otherwise unobtain- able but it may be the only defense to avoid urre.nder on lha deal. Today's lix club contract to exceHent case In point. West opener! the bidding four hearts to make difficult for his opponents he lured North, into mak- ing kn unsound double.

VUUulluimhuUhk. West led the king of -hearts Which South ruffed in his hand. South tested trumps by cashing the ace and then overtaking iis queen vitit North's king. The suit divid- ed evenly. A heart was trumped and dummy was reenlcred with the queen of diamonds to ruff out tee last heart as East followed suit each time, dropping the acs on the third round. The king of diamonds was cashed on which West dis- carded a spade. South now knew his opponent's exact distribution, West had start- ed with two clubs, one dia- m o n d seven hearts and three spades. Inasmuch as he had made a vulnerable four heart opening on a suit jiead- ed by the king-queen. South presumed that West also had strength in spades. Dummy was entered with the ace of diamonds and a email spade was returned. When East followed with ths six. South played the nina and West was in with ihe queen. Realizing that a heart return would give his oppo- nent a roll and sluff, West led back a small spade. Tha three was played from dum- my and Souli topped East's ten wila the jack. Declarer ruffed a diamond in dummy and claimed the balance witb trumps. Had West committed c-t thfl "cardinal sins of bridge" by giving his oppo- cent a and sluff. it woujd have led lo the defeat; ot the contract. South actual- ly had two losers one in opadea and one in diamonds. The diamond can always ba lulled in dummy, but ha can't ruff out both cards since North had only ona trump left If Weit return! a heart and South ruffs with the nine of clubs, he can dis- card either a spade or a dia- Tnond from his hand, hut he is left with a loser, which nut mutually bt conceded., Discovering Pluto Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Mike Grimm, age w_ of Peoria, Illinois, for his question: How did they calculate the existence of Pluto? Astronomers tackled this ex citing conundrum in the 1700s The problem was presentee by perturbation, which hap- to be a very disturbing problem in its own right Heavenly bodies exert gravi- tational forces according to their masses. Since they rarely if ever move in perfect har- mony, their masses affect each other. Such perturbances cause slight changes in the paths of all the members of our closely knit solar system. The planetary orbits are el- lipses and their orbital speeds are slightly faster when each planet comes iLs closest to the sun because during this phase nf Uie yearly orbit, Ihc mighty sun exerts stronger gravita- tional force. Though the sun's mighty gravity governs almost all the motions of the planets, to a small degree their own les- ser gravities also affect each other. Traveling in their separate lanes, the inner planets are al- ways catching up and passing those in the wVler orbits out- iide them. Hence, in the merry- ;o-round of the solar system, .he planets are forever coming closer to each other and then moving farther apart. Since the "orce of gravity diminishes with distance, the gravitational Force between the planets dim- inishes and increases. These fariations, plus the variations of the sun's distance cause pcr- Lurbances or slight wobbles in planetary paths. For example, :he changing positions of Jupi- er and S'aturn cause a minor lerturbarice every 60 years or o and a major one every 900 .-ears. Uranus was discovered in 781 and a few observations en- abled astronomers to compute its orbit. However, repeated ob- servations revealed something amiss. Slight orbital wobbles suggested Uranus was in- fluenced by another invisible planet, farther out in the solar system. These perfurbanccs were computed along with the distance of the sun to pinpoint the possible source of the dis- turbances. This led to the dis- covery of Neptune in 1846. Then of all things, the oH story of perturbances repeated itself. Detailed observations re- vealed slight wobbles in the path computed for Neptune. But Neptune moves so slowly that tracing the source seemed almost impossible. However, it turned out that Uranus also was influenced by this still invisible planet. Tliis time the disUnee of the sun was computed with the pcrturhances of both Ura nus and Ncptiuie lo pinpoint the likely part of the sky. Fin- ally, little Pluto was located in 1930 just about where all those patient calculations indi- cated that it should be. The computed orbits of Nep- tune and Uranus, compared with their observed perturba- t i o n s. revealed just about where Pluto should be. Numer- ous telescopic plates of this re- gion were studied in fine de- lail. They were crowded with dots of starry light but only time could show which was a planet. On January 30, 1930, it was proved that one small dot was moving very slowly against the background of fix- ed stars. This one had to be an orbiting planet.
