Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, September 29, 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNKSDAY, SEPT. 30 Your birthday today: Your course through the new year is a sharp departure for you. Events require personal read- justment, sometimes sudden- ly with some inconvenience. All ciiangcs are ultimately for the better. Romantic in- terests bring numerous poig- nant moments of stress. To- day's natives generally talk fluently, often far too much. Their vocations frequently involve the handling of vola- tile, aromatic liquids, paint, ink, perfume and the like. ARIES (March 21-April Cooperation now is of more value than the actual work achieved. Take and give your share. Everything is rather Andy sends n complete 20- volume set of the Worh Book Encyclopedia to Ron alii Dcshuk, age 13, ol Lorain, Ohio, for his ques- tion: How do insects survive th winter? The majority of insects com plete their amazing life cycle in a single year. In most cases their states of developmer are timed to take advantage o the changing seasons. Man species survive tho winter as eggs and many others a pupae. Some spend the wiate as active larvae and sever; remain in this stage thrcuf? two to 20 years. In the teem ing insect world, no possibilil of survival is overlooked, number of species even spen the winter as adults or larvae Some hibernate and others re- main partially active. The summer air swarm with squadrons of adult flyin insects. This is the busy sea son for mating and layin eggs. Come late fall, in region with cold winters, all the flit ting-fluttering creatures disap pear from the scene. The nex generations are in hiding, mos of them dormant until the firs warm breath of spring. The dead grasses conceal' stores o tiny aphid eggs. Packages o 100 or so kaytdid eggs are tucked in the twigs of oak and cherry, maple and apple trees The bark of shade and fores trees provide winter shelter for countless insect eggs. Th gypsy moth wraps her eggs in a warm package of scales am hairs and sticks it on her fa vorite tree. The tiny eggs of the tent caterpillar are con cealed in twigs and the eggs of the webworm are hidden in withered leaves. Dragonflies cope with the cold as active nymphs; mos- quitoes as wrigglers. Both sur- vive in the water. Hungry ci- cada nympths live under- ground, in some species for as long as 20 years. The Isabella month larvae hibernates as the famous woolly bear caterpil- lar. The caterpillar of the viceroy butterfly hibernates wrapped in a leaf. Many butterflies and moths survive the winter in the pupa stage. The cabbage butterfly dozes in a small green chrysalis. The sphynx moth hibernates below ground as a large purple chrysalis. The cecropia moth fixes its long brown cocoon to a bare maple or willow twig. Many other moths also hibernate in silken cocoons. Other insects survive even the hardest winters as adults. Ladybirds congregate under rocks and fallen logs and water beetles remain active all winter. Honeybees reduce their numbers, seal the hives and ration the honey to last until spring. Angle wing butterflies hibernate, hidden in crannies. One of them, the dark velvety mourning cloak, comes out for a flutter on warm winter days. At least one insect migrates. Come fall, from everywhere across the land, flocks of mon- arch butterflies fly hundreds of miles to spend a mild win- ter in California. Winter is -too severe for most adult insects and there is not enough food for hordes of hungry larvae. But insect eggs are small miracles of quiet en- durance. Their tiny shells are woven in intricate designs that let in air and repel water, even when submerged. Silken cocoons are warm and water repellent and a sturdy chrys- alis also is armed against bruises. Hence most insects survive the winter in either the egg or pupa stage and some species leave broods of both eggs and pupae to take their chances.

LAMB, M.D. If a little is good, is moi Ktter? Not necessarily if yo want to stay healthy. Most e the things you need for heal will harm you if you have them excess. Oxygen in the air you breatr s one example. If you are ex posed to thin air, at altitud you may not get enough oxy Jen. If the oxygen lack is s it can cause fainting o even death. Now, if you hav oo much oxygen, more tliar you usually get in the air a sea level, it can cause changes in the lungs, decreased forma ion of red blood cells and eve leath from "oxygen tox: city."

Like too much oxygen or too much sunshine, too much cyclamate proved to be harmful. Many people, particularly diabetics, over weight indivi- duals and those with heart dis- ease, need foods prepared with artificial sweeteners. H you are one of those I say go ahead and use them. There is more valid evidence linking cancer in man (not rats) to sunshine than to tte sweeteners. Just as a warning to dia- betics after all the to-do over cyclarnates, some soft dietetic drinks are now made with .su- gar. Old bottles are not always distinctly labeled. Some diabet- ics have already gotten into medical difficulties over this snafu.

For example, the antibiotic te- tracycline is available under 12 different brand names. A 230- milligram capsule or tablet costs from cents to 15 cents depending on the brand. A 23-milligram tablet of the tranquillizer chlordiazepoxide costs 3.6 cents under the brand name Via-Quil and nine cents under the name Librium. The index took a 10-man, gov- ernment-appointed committee two years to prepare. A list of another 400 drugs and revisions to the present index is expected in six months. Only drugs listed in the index will be sold at the Ontario pharmacies which belong to the government program Parcost. The name stands for "prescrip- tions at reasonable cost" and member pharmacists are pledged to charge the index price for a drug, plus a dispen- sing fee of not more than a prescription. The name stands for "pre- scriptions at reasonable cost" and member pharmacists are pledged to charge the index price for a drug, plus a dispen- sing fee of not more than a prescription. The index also says it is in- tended to "give recognition to firms meeting high standards." Drugs are listed only if they have been tested and approved by the Canadian food and drug directorate and the United States Food and Drug Adminis- tration. Sixty drugs were ommited from the list because they fell short of the minimum stand- ards. The government has not identified them. ANOTHER eurreK BALL! SIX IN A K0N.
