Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Frictqy, Soplombor 22, !97 Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, SEl'T. 23 1'olir birthday today: Many of tho coming year's events will teach without yielding much material prof- its. Whatever gift you have for premonitory intuition will come to the surface. Today's natives arc forthright, sin- cere, with a knack for not be- ing apprcciaied fully. AMES (Marcli Learn from overhearing unfa- vorable comment about your- self. Breaks in activity needn't be subject of rash remarks or action. TAURUS (April 20-May If you do half what seems ex- pected of you, it will Ire a strenuous Saturday indeed. Se- lect what you can do reason- ably well. GEMINt 21 June See how gently you relate to those you love. Thsre is _ no great need for much physical exertion on this complex week- end of many moods. CANCER (June 21 July With morning comes intuition on how to build more family togetherness. It may he a set of minor changes ratlier than formal moves. LEO (July 23 Aug. Your impatience gets you nothing but a fast word. Hold onto your temper, particularly if you are away from home. VIRGO (Aug. 2.1 Sr-pl. Penny-wise is on the verge of pound-foolish in response to urgings from people you haven't learned to refuse. Libra (Sept. 23 Oct. Put aside personal wishes in favor of amity. Care and cour- tesy is for strangers; for those you love sometliing deeper Is needed. SCORPIO (Oct. 2.1 Nov. Just when everything is going great, you blurt out something that is better left unsaid. Try o salvage what is left of the (lay. SAGITTAKIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. Even very moderate pro- posals run into resistance you can't rationalize. Minimize the personal element, make a com- promise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Adjourn if you cannot set- tle a disagreement. Your nat- ural tendency to seek co- herence comes into very con- structive use. AQUARIUS (Jar. 20 Feb. There is very little that you can persuade people to be- lieve fo? the moment, particu- larly if they haven't asked your opinion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Apparently you have more peo- ple looking to you for support and guidance than you have helping. Raise a few questions on the subject. (1072 By The Chicago Tribune) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Can. ailing veins be removed? Sweep pays off MILAN (Reuler> Italian police have arrested 380 per- sons and recovered million worth of stolen goods in their latest periodic mass sweep through the country. Items seized included 304 hand gre- nades, 155 artillery shells and 793 sticks of dynamite as well as explosives, detonators and fuses. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHAHLES il. GOREN e ]in Br TIM Trttow Neither vulnerable. South deals. NORTH A Q10 7 5 VA J87 0753 36 WEST EAST 4AJ82 VIS W42 OKQJ 09 K 8 5 3 Q J10 4 Z SOUTH Void V K Q 10 9 3 O A 108642 AT The bidding: Booth West North East 1 Dble, 2V 4 A 6 V Dble. Pass Fist Opening lead: King of 0 A stunning bit of deception oy South at the opening gun lured West into a fatal mis- step at the next trick which handed over to the former Ws five heart doubled con- tract. South opened the bidding with one heart .and West with distributed values in the other suits and H points, jna'do a takeout double. North's raise to two 'hearts confirms the Irump fit and designates a holding with modest values, for with a good hand, he would obvi- ously have redoubled. East's iump to four spades on a hand worth a mere nine points in high cards and distribution was based on the, reasonable assumption that his own values would fit in well with a partner whose takeout double had invited him to show an unbid suit. South, with Ms highly dis- tributional holding, was re- luctant to defend on the deal. Since partner had con- firmed a fit in hearts, there appeared little to gain in showing his second suit. South merely persisted to live hearts. West held minimum, values for his original douHe and a rela- tively balanced holding, he realized that a pass at this point might be interpreted by partner as a willingness on his part to carry on to live spades. West felt con- strained to double liva hearts to prevent East from making a move which might result in a substantial loss en the deal. West opened the king of diamonds and South paused to study the situation at length before playing from dummy. An opening lead in his side suit was an unex- pected altho not unwelcome development, for if declarer has time to establish the dia- monds a club can be dis- carded from dummy on one of his long cards. The only problem hinged on how the diamonds were divided. If each opponent has a double ton, then South can take 12 tricks. After he wins the ace of diamonds and pulls trump, a second round of diamonds splits the suit and declarer has the rest eince a club can be discarded, by North on the fourth dia- mond and South's small club is subsequently ruffed -in dummy If the adverse diamonds are three-one, however, the defense has time to find the club shift before the out- standing diamond stoppers are dislodged and they will end up taking two diamonds and one club. South finally decided that his best chance to succeed was to enlist West's help by masking his own strength in the side suit. The three of diamonds was played from dummy and when East fol- lowed suit with the nine, de- clarer made the wily play of the eight permitting West to hold the trick. By concealing all of his small diamonds, South made East's play of the nine look like a come-on urging West to con- tinue the suit West dutifully led back the queen of diamonds and now declarer .was in charge of the situation. East discarded [It would not have helped to ruff in] and South played the ace. Trumps were drawn in two pulls and West was given his second diamond trick with the jack. A belated shift was made to a club, but South produced the ace and slulfed North's remaining club on the ten of diamonds. He ruffed a club and claimed the balance in bis own hand with diamonds and hearts, [n all South lost two diamond tricks on the deal. If declarer foad won Urn first trick and subsequently led a diamond, it would have given East the opportunity to discard a high club when West wins the jack of dia- monds, and now a club shift establishes the setting trick in that suit while West still retains control of diamonds with the queen. Dear Dr. Lamb I would i like some advice on varicose veins. I am in my early 50s and unjoy sports sucli as tennis and swimming. But while oth- ers wear sliorts and bathing suits, I have to wear support hose and slacks because of un- slightly dark purple veins. I have tried all kinds of cover- ups, but to no avail. Are there any operations besides skin grafs for my ankles and bends of my knees? My ankles and knees are all purple with small veins. I also have large knotty ones in one leg. Please give some advice. Is this type of operation dangerous? I'm tired of bundling up in hot weather. Dear Reader Varicose veins lire a problem. The large veins can cause accumulation of blood in the legs and ankles causing swelling, skin discolor- ation and even ulceratipn of the skin. The very small liny veins that some women have in the surface of the skin causa no medical problem, and are only a cosmetic consideration. Before anything is done, a complete physical examination has to be accomplished to de- termine the state of all of the veins in the legs. There are some superficial veins that some people can see and then there are large deep veins within the large muscles of the leg and thigh that are equally important. If the large veins in the legs are normal, the little tiny sup- erficial network of veins thai some women have can be eradicated by a little eleclrica needle, much in the same way small dilated veins in the nose can be corrected. This proced- KEWOVtN NEVER HAD 61RLS HANS IMS OM W5 PIANO TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan ure is of little value however, f the.large veins in the skin and deeper in the legs are in- volved. In this case, it is some- imps possible to strip out the ,'aricose veins depending on (lie finding of tho medical examin- Eiion. Skin grafts are com- pletely usless in these condi- :ions unless the underlying aroblem of the varicose veins is corrected first and good circulation is established. Then a graft isn't needed, e Dear Dr. Lamb Recently a reader wrote you about epil- epsy. I am also an epileptic and have been examined and found Hie cause to be irregular brain waves. I have medication for it. Is it possible that being overly excited, overly tired, or worried can bring on an at- tack or seizure? Dear Header Epilepsy is not actually caused by irregul- ar brain waves. The irregular brain wave is a manifestation of the epilepsy itself. The ac- tual seizure may be thought of as being caused by an elec- trical short circuit in the brain. When the electrical disorder oc- curs it causes the irregular brain wave and stimulates the body to respond to cause the convulsion. The medicine acls to decrease the excess eal activity in the brain and thereby prevents convulsions. In most instances when suf- ficient medicine is given, the overactive electrical areas in the brain can he culmed down enough to prevent them from precipitating a convulsion, even in the face of most normal events of ordinary living that you mentioned. Snake growth Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Robert Ybarra, age 11, of National City, California, for his ques- tion: How long ilocs a rattlesnake grow? The average snake doubles size in the first year of his life and reaches his full size by the time he reaches his third birthday. Most of our rat- tlers grow at this usual snakey rate. But we have 13 different species and the final length they grow to be depends upon the individual species. In the desefrls, east of San Diego lives the swerving sidewinder. His lull length may he anything be- tween 13 and 30 inches. The eastern diamondback may be three times longer. Almost every state in North America is lived in by a native rattlesnake and some regions have two or even three local species to worry about. They are more numerous in the arid and semi-arid prairies and des- erts in the West and South. But two of our 13 species lurk in the Eastern and South-Cen- tral states. One of them is giant may reach a length of nine feet. He certainly de- serves the title of largest poi- sonous snake in North Ameri- ca. He Is the eastern diamond- back, alias the Florida raltler His scaly body is marked with a network of tan-colored dia- monds on a background o: drrk brown. Though a recor< specimen of nine feet has been verified, individuals rarely ge a chance to grow longer than about five feet before some- body spots them and puts a permanent stop to their grow ing days. The timber rattler lurks in wooded regions through the Gulf States and along the Eastern seaboard, sometimes as far as the center of the con litsent. His average length is somewhere between a n c six feet. The prairie rattler's range he gins cast of the Mississippi. H< is a greenish-yellow fellow mottled with brown blotches. His length varie J from 214 to five feet. From he. plains he extends westward liroughout the prairies and the mountains, all the way to the 'acific coast. Toward the South, the timber rattlers of the East and the prairie rattler of the Wesl share a stretch of territory with he sidewinder and the westeri diamondback, alias the Texas raltler. The sandy speckled sidewinder reaches a maxi mum length of 30 inches. Bu bat Texas rattler has been known to reach 714 feet :hougli his average is about 4 Vz feet. His pattern of darkei and lighter diamonds blend: with his background as he slith ers among rocky slopes and across the open desert. The pigmy rattler is 18 inch es to two feet long. He the southeastern corner with :he timber rattler and prefer higher ground. The thick blotchy brown massasauga ral tier prefers the swamplan along the Mississippi Valley. H may grow to be 314 feet long. All of our ralllers have po: sonous fangs and even a young ster can deal a deadly bite During the first two or three years of growth they shed their skins several limes a season. Later, when they stop grow- ing, they usually cast (heir shabby old coats about once a year. Each year, an extra but- ton may be added to the rattle at the Up of the tail. But since the last ones often get lost, we cannot be sure of a rattler's age by counting the bony but- tons on his ratlle. Quesltuns asnea uy cMimcn Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
