12 THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID Monday, SeplemW 28, 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON TL'KSDAY, SEl'T. 29 Your birthday today: The search for creative self-ex- pression dominates your en- tire coming year. Your past achievements are foundations of the present and encourage- ment for the future, but none- theless past. The new paths you follow now arc defined more by instinct than logic. Today's natives include many obvious instances of fate tak- ing a dominant hand in their history. Many possess great theatrical ability. AIUES (March 21 April Slow down a bit, master your impulses, then yoc can be more effective in the responses you do make to the vexations of to- day. Plan for a quite evening. TAURUS 2j May Use your head rather than your feelings to meet provocative stresses. Gambling is almost certain to involve loss and other repercussions more important than the loss itself. GEMINI (May 21 June There is no simple, magic solu- tion for today's complex atmo- Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Mark Nishi- liara, age 8, of Oromocto, New Brunswick, Canada, for his question: Where are the world's biggest whirlpools? Two are in the oceans, where tossing tides bash into hard rocky shores. Another one is in- land" at the bottom of the world's most famous waterfall. There may be other whopping whirlpools still waiting to be discovered. They may be on lonely islands in the polar seas or perhaps in secret jungle riv- ers. The wildest whirlpools of the sea tend to come and go. Unless someone happens to be there at the right time, they may not be discovered. The people of Norway dis- covered their whirlpool ages ago. They named it the Mael- strom. Sailors in the Mediter- ranean Sea knew about another wild whirlpool, ihousands of years ago. They named it Charaybdis and tried very hard to stay away from its raging waters. Long before Co- lumbus discovered the New World, the American Indians knew that there is a raging whirlpool where Niagara Falls crashes down into the river be- low. So far as we know, these are the three biggest whirl- pools in the world. There are smaller ones, mil- lions of them along rocky shores and in rushing rivers. The little ones, where the wa- ter swirls gently around, are called eddies. But all whirl- pools, the small eddies and the monster maelstroms, are pock- ets of water swirling around and around in circles. They font) because something hard and solid blocks the path of running water. The current of a river flows on and on, gently down to the sea. Sometimes its path is blocked by a jutting rock or a boulder right out in the middle of the stream. When this happens, the running water tries to flow around. But some- times a rock is so big and hard that it bashes the water around and back again into the flow- ing current. Then it spins a full circle and forms a whirlpool. The sea, of course, has the mightiest currents and tossing tides. Sometimes two opposite ocean currents crash into each other and spin around in circling whirlpool. Sometimes the tides crash into stubborn rocks and shoals along the shores. At low tide there is no clash and the shal- low shore is calm. But when the next high tide comes bil- lowing in, it creates a wile whirlpool of swirling water This happens in the Strait ol Slessina, between the toe o] Italy and the rocky coast of Si- cily. Here the changing tides whip up the whopping whirlpool named Charybdis. The smal Lofoten Islands are off the northwest coast of Norway. Here the Artie Ocean drives mighty tides into the rocky shore and creates the monster Maelstrom. When these two great whirlpools are raging, the water swirls around in deep, hollow funnels with steep sides and foaming rims. These ocean whirlpools come and go with the changing winds and tides. But not the mighty whirlpool at the foot of Niagara Falls. Every minute, tons of water plunge down the cliffs, digging a deep round ba- sin in the river bed. Every minute, more water tumbles down. It keeps the rocky basin swirling to the brim with whirl- ing white water. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

CANCER (June 21 July Caution in travel and use of equipment is urped. You are pursuing a rather solitary course now. Think what you are doing take the risks into ac- count and go ahead. LEO (July 23 Aug. Take the most conservative course. It may be better simply to ride along with conditions than to attempt drastic solutions. Get the facts before you make changes. VIKGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Drama is in the air capture it constructively in creative pro- jects. People are tempted into needless bickering. Passive re- sistance, clisinvolvement are es- sential. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Creative experience is the thing today. Secrets, neglected chores complicate routine matters. Your money has too many places to go; just wait a while. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Siart early, settle tilings before your friends indulge an emo- tional need to interfere. Use your talents for their higliest application. The later hours can be great fun. SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. Pause once in a while to- day to let intuition catch up with the insistent stimuli all around you. Don't let squab- bles deteriorate into serious ar- guments. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Your system of organizing runs a collision course with oth- er people's ventures. Seek com- promise acceptance. It is a tense but very rewarding day. AQUARIUS (Jan.-20 Feb. Continue to avoid any ac- tion which would endanger your partnership or marriage. Your intuition now is your finest guide, despite your very active logic. PISCES (Fell. 19 March Going along with others may be the quickest way to advance your own plans. Look ahead to judge when you must diverge to follow your own path some- what later. 1970, Ncwstlay, Inc. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN I fi BIT Thl CMaifl TllbMl] ANSWERS TO BRIDGE QUIZ Q.
