Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Saturday, Sipltmbir 25, 1971 Your horoscope By Dixon SUNDAY, SEPT. It Yonr birthday today: Your year ahead is ir.dicated as good, with favorable breaks and chances to cash in on your attainments, self-im- provement programs, and here and there an assist from jour friends who now tend to multiply. Today's natives may say little to express their deep sympathy. They usually see both sides of a question but cannot be turned asida from their convictions. ARIES (March Zl-Aprll Minding your own business quietly becomes an art for this complex Sunday. If you have any legitimate excuse to spend it away from your accustomed place, do so. TAURUS (April 20-May Favorable developments prom- ised for today take forms other than expected, continue just as good. GEMINI (May 21-June Rushing doesn't produce any progress. Be deliberate and think what you're doing. Give yourself time to review plans. CANCER (Ji'oe 21-Jnly Social activity holds more long- term benefits than nearly any commercial enterprise. LEO (July 23-Aug. Al- low matters to go along in al- ready set grooves this Sunday. Breaking pace, sudden rushes avail nothing VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sepl. Intuition leads the way louc and clear. Let go, pray and permit your environment to ef- fect a balance, LIBRA (Sept. 23-Ott. Pursue external existence, leaving technical and petty considerations for a time when you are not so free to move. SCORPIO (Ocl, 23-Nov. Be right on your toes to chal- lenge a rival early and late. Once started, pursue the mat- ter to ils harsh end and get done with it. Government backs speed limit bid EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government plans to per- mit municipalities (o impose 20- miles an hour speed limits on residential streets, highways Minister Clarence Copilhorne said here. Ke told a news conference the legislation will have to be pass- ed lo permit the change, which was requested by Calgary city council. mhe council made a bid to lower the limits from 30 m.p.h, to the Social Credit govern- ment, but it was refused. The Social Credit government fell before a Progressive Conserva- tive onslaught in the Aug. 30 genera] election. The lower limit was recom- mended by a coroner's jury inquiring into the death of a three year old boy who was killed in Calgary when he ran between parked cars. The Highway Traffic Act sets a speed of 30 m.p.h. in built-up areas, with municipalities hav- ing power to set higher limits. Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Gary Kuba- lak, age 14, of Superior, Wis- consin, for his question: How fast does Ihe earth move? Our dizzy old planet spins, circles and boomeragns all at different speeds in differ, ent directions. It also manages to crowd into its busy schedule a few nods and swerves. Most of its motions are fantastically fast but none of them maintain perfectly even speeds. What's more, its dizzy directions do not follow perfect geometric patterns. All these details are hard lo verify and most of them are subject to revision at any time on the basis of new evidence. The earth's largest and fast- est sweep is a swing around the galaxy. This speed is computed in a roundabout way, based on the estimated distance of our solar system from the center of the starry pinwheel. Since the galactic center is hidden be- hind dark nebulae in the con- stellation Saggilarius, this esti- mate is based on tedious mea- surements of local stars, plus the mass and motions of the galaxy as a whole. Needless to say, these, factors may be re- vised wilh more precise evi- dence. But we know for sure that the speed and scope of this galactic rotation are stupen- dous. In the past decade, the earth's galactic speed has been estimated at various figures from 130 lo 150 miles per sec- ond. At present, many astro- nomers take it to be about miles per hour. Tho complete solar system rotates at this speed as it swings around within Ihe galaxy, keep- all its rotating and revolving planets precisely in their places as it goes. The radius of this circular path is some light years. Each galactic rota- tion is one cosmic year, equal to 200 million earth-years, or thereabouts. So far as we know, the cos- mic year does not affect earthly events. But the calendar year brings us the changing seasons. We travel this 600 mil- lion mile orbit around the sun in days. The average or- bital speed Is miles per hour. It is slightly faster in De- cember, when we arc closest lo the sun and slightly slower in July when the distance between us and the sun is about three million miles longer. However, every calendar day we travel more than million miles with the earth as it orbits around the sue. During that same period, we spin around from day lo night as the earth rotates on its axis. Each rotation takes about four minutes less than the 24-hour calendar day. And the surface speed varies with latitude. At the equator, it rotates at miles per hour. From there it diminishes as we go north and south and gradually dwindles to zero at the poles. Recent evidence indicates that the earth's rotation is slowing and each day is slightly longer than the previous one. If these SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec, Keep your statements sim- ple and to the point, but by all means make them and quite loudly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 2Z-Jan. Streamline all proceed- ings; discard the obsolete and useless. There's little time for diversion. AQUARIUS 20-Fcu. Deviations from regular practices, changes of schedules create confusion throughout. Hold to established good work habits. PISCES (Feb. ID-March Haste makes wasle and some- times accidents. The more lei- surely, sensible approach pro- duces a sounder result. Hidden obstacles should be assumed and dealt with as the need arises. MONDAY. SEPT. 27 Your birthday today: The main stress this year is on your ability to organize around a minimum of re- sources, and to keep matters simple. Relations with your male (and your public image as well) seem to require con- slant attention. Today's na- tives have intense, usually little challenged, personal en- ergy and a strong love of home. ARIES (March 21-April Pursuing your own healthy self-interests helps keep (he peace. It's the side issues that stir excitement. TAURUS (April 20-May First things first pay as lit- tle attention to passing events as possible. There will be plenty of time to review later. GEMINI (May 21-Junc Early morning is late enough to make corrections, change of course if you still can. Defer any final decisions. CANCER (June 21-Jnly Take the time to look over what others do, particularly any active competitors. Your own projects will fare better. LEO (July 23-Allp. Be easy in your dealings, espe- cially with younger people. You haven't got the whole story. Forgive rudeness and tempera- ment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Scpl. All you can accept of what you thought you wanted of respon- siblity happens now. Draw a line; limit your burden to real- ity. LIDRA (Sept. Gently does, it 23-Oct. where long- standing issues are reopened. You've been through these problems before and can do better this time. Evening hours promise deep rewards in study, creative thought. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Property and possessions at- tract attention, and changing values are suggested accept nothing on the basis of today's estimates. Sleep over any doubts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Anything you find within easy reach is not quite the best approach. If nothing better of- fers, stay with yeslerdav's for- mula. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) Escape attempt foiled BERLIN (AP) East Ger- man border guards foiled es- cape attempts today with a spray of automatic weapons bul- lets that slammed into heavily- populated West Berlin houses. One bullet smashed the wm- dow of a bedroom in which a three-year-old child was asleep. It was not known whether three persons involved in two escape attempts over the wall were injured, although one man was seen being dragged away. In a third incident near H e 1 m s t e d t, East German guards opened fire capturing one of two men trying to cross a mine field to the Wtst. The other man was last seen run- ning back into East Germany. The American Berlin com- mandant, Maj.-Gen. William W. Cobb, sharply protested the two incidents in wall area districts in the American sectro of Ber- lin. Cobb said many families with children lived in houses struck by East German bullets. In Munich, the Bavarian state interior minsitry reported two Czechoslovaks seeking asylum in West Germany were turned over to Czechoslovak officials. A spokesman said the two men, a 24-year-old truck driver and his 19-year-old brother, were unable to provide suffi- cient evidence that they fled Czechoslovakia on p o 1 i t i c a 1 grounds. The pair arrived near the Ba- varian border town of Regen late Wednesday night. Claims youth grants help nudity scene OTTAWA (CP) In the quiet Cape Breton hamlet of Tarbotvale, says Robert Muir Breton-The Syd- Inere are reports of "nudity end other activities" in a farmhouse that appar- ently received a Oppor- tunities-tor-Youth grant. He rose in Commons Thursday to ask State Secre- tary Gerard Pelletier whether he had received any com- plaints about the establish- ment operated by so-called students. Furthermore, lie wanted lo know whether any of the would be used to pro- vide clothing. Mr. Pelletier said he was unaware of Lhe establishment, but he would inquire. Outside the House, Mr. Muir said he has received complaints about Lhe wliich he says is on a dirt road and could scarcely be classified as a convenient hos- tel for transients. He said the farm is appar- ently occupied by three men and three girls. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN [C 1HI: Ir TAt Chicago Trfbunu WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ Q.
