Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 39, 1971 Your horoscope By Dixon TIIUHSDAY. SEI'T. 30 Your birthday today: This promises lo be tlic year for you to put your life together along more philosophic pat- terns. Past experience be- comes more meaningful and useful. Today's natives re- spond directly to the urgings of destiny, frequently benefit from strange "coincidence." ARIES (March 21 Do what seems to you the most logical tiling; expect nothing really lo settle down before the weekend. Listening carefully pays better than sounding off. TAU1WS (April 20 Slay 20 Answer demands on your time and energy within reason. Try- ing lo anticipate mailers only len.'.s contusion. GEMINI (May 21 For once you have the most to gain by a passive and calm response to all provocations and encouragements. Do the least you can; conserve your re- sources. CANCER (June 21 Jnly Cheer up, take people as they happen to be, seek out their virtues lor praise and see how they react. LEO (July 23 Aug. Striving to get all the delails complicates everything to the point of getting nothing done at all. Do what is Hie most simple and obvious. I VIRGO (Aug. Z3 Scfl. j Gathering information and past (.history adds much drama and a great deal of confusion and contradiction. Defer decisions. LIBRA (Sept. 13 Ocl. Serious promotions fall victim lo distractions. You may 33 well take lime out for carnival moods and celebrations. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. The temptation lo try too much too soon is widespread. One step at a tJme is enough, and preferably let things come to you rather than have lo pur- sue mailers. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Creativity scatters and ideas catch on all about you. Where you adopt anything, give full credit as you gu, and slu-e with others. CAPRICORN (Utc. 22 Jan. Quick decisions snarl pre- viou plans and not just j your own. An idea good enough can await checking and prep- aration. AQUARIUS (.Ian. Feb. Being left' out of things may be a blessing in disguise, Use every chance for placid re- flection on how wonderful life may be. PISCES (Feb. 19 March I Budgeting time and energy as well as cash U essenlial. Some i projects seem beyond reach for 1 the moment. HOU'5 THIS FOR A BEAUTIFUL DKAUIN67IT5HOWSAHERD OFCOiJSINTHEEARWEVEHlNS RETURNIN6 TO THEIR COW HOUSE FARM SET TUMBLEWEEPS-By TOM K, RYAN LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. youre ,inny try exercising Dear Dr. Lamh have been underweight for most of my life and would like to know yays to gain weight. I would also like to know ways to straighten rounded shoulders. Dear Reader Many young people think they need to gain weight. This is usually a mat- ter of appearance rather lhan strictly a matter of health. Girls want more curves in Uie right places and boys want to be "big and strong." Usually this leads to doing the wrong thing. Putting on a lot of un- necessary fat doesn't help the appearance and can even de- tract from it. If a person is really under- weight in a medical sense, then it is quite important to find out why. If it is caused by a digestive disturbance, it needs correction. If there is a chronic infection, it should be treated. Rarely, a person has an overactive thyroid that needs attention. In some ways being underweight if one really is deserves more at- tention than being overweight. If you are healthy and just don't weigh as much as you would like, I can't really sug- gest doing anything more than increasing your physical activity. This will help you build good, strong muscles and strong bones and that should be your goal. Hounded shoulders usually mean that you need to devel- op the muscles in the back be- tween the shoulders. Start do- ing exercises that rotate the arms up, out, and back, down, and up again. Use exercise that contract the muscles in the back between the shoulders. A light set of springs that you can pull out with both arms simultaneously helps, too. Good posture also makes a differ- ence. Dear Dr. Lamh I want to know what causes a person to throw up blood. Dear Reader Vomilinj blood can occur from the me- chanical effects of forceful vomiting alone. It can be caused from any ulcer or ero- sion in the esophagus or stom- ach. Sometimes liver disease causes dilated veins at the junction between the esophagus and beginning of the stomach. II they rupture, there is usual- ly a large loss of blood. Any- one who is vomiting blood should see a physician at once for a complete examination. Dear Dr. Lamb What is albuminuria due to and how can it be cured? Dear Reader Albumin Is one of the natural occurring proteins in the blood stream. Normally, very small amounts of it are lost in the urine each day. When the amount losl is increased, it becomes abnor- mal and is called albuminuria. There are many causes, from an infection of the kidney or urinary tract to defects in the kidney tract caused by dif- ferent diseases, including heart failure. It is sometimes caused by mechanical factors related to standing upright. The treat- ment depends -upon what is causing it. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CRADLES a GOREN mil It Tto TrikM Both vulnerable.

A rebid ot one no trump with 17 high card points would have been a drastic understatement and Do other call suggests itself. Fortunalely South bid one no trump and the auction proceeded in easy stages la game. West opened the king of iearts and was allowed to hold the first trick as South followed with thfe ten. Tha queen ot hearts was continued and declarer was In with tho ace. It was obvious that the club mil would have to provide the bulk of the required tricks, to the three oC clubs was led. West played the seven and (he ten was put In from dummy, losing to East's king. East paused lo consider Iba citiiau'on. South had iihown up with the ace of hearts, diowcvcr the most Ihil ha could have In the minor sulU Is the jack of clubs. He must, therefore, hold the ice ot spades, or else how could ho carry on lo three no trump. A shift to cither a spade or diamond would accordingly surrender a (rick and It appears thai o club return U Indicated. East went one Mm farther. nil opponent wu cMvuIr trying to develop Ais long suit. If the spots were lo be believed [South had led (lie Ihree and West followed with the then declarer held the 4-5-6, if he had one more club, either the eight or the jack, that would give him a five card suit When he regains the lead, South will be in position to cash North's high clubs, reenter his hand with the ace of spades and cash two long cards lor nine clubs, three dia- monds, one heart and one spade. There was only one way to foil South and that was to drive out his entry card, before the block in Uie club suit is eliminated. So reason- ing, East shifted to the king of spades, oven Uio this del iherately sacrificed a trick. Declarer played the ace, crossed over lo the ace of clubs, cashed the queen and then led the high diamonds. When the jack did not fall, tiowcrer, South ended up eat (rick short of his goal. Analysis may suggest Ihot declarer can frustrate his astute opponent by allowing East to tioiu the kir.g oC spades when that card is led at (rick four. The laller will presumably conlinue wilh a small spade to North's queen. The ace and queen of clubs are cashed to clear that suit, followed by the A-K-Q of diamonds. East is now thrown back in wilh the jack of dia- monds and since he has only spades left, he must put South back in with the ace of that suit to lake Ihc last two tricks. The defense is thereby limited to one trick; in each suit. The only trouble with tMs analysis is that East docs not liave to allow himself to bo cndplaycd. If ha drops the Jack ot diamonds under ona of dummy's high honors, it surrenders another trick, but at the same time it locks tho lead In the North hand. After the diamonds are run, North must ploy a heart and West wins the last two tricks in lhat suit lo defeat the con- trnct- We must presume thflC if East could sec far enough Ahead lo sacrifice his klnR of npndci, he could have worked out tho unblocking play In diamonds as his opponent put him to the teat j The Constellations Andy sends a complete 20- volum'e set of the World Book Encyclopedia to M a r g i e Scheibel, age 12, of Belleville, Illinois, for her question: Which eonslcllations are visible summer and Vmtcr? North of the equator, Polaris shines down on us every night of the year. In the skies above Saint Louis, you can locate it about 39 degrees above the northern horizon. This is be- cause the city is located near Latitude 39 degrees North if the equator. In case sky dis- tances bewilder you, one de- gree of sky distance equals al- most twice the width of the full moon. And Polaris is not alone Up There summer and winter. In our latitudes, several starry constellations appear every night of the year. The word "circumpolar" means around Hie pole. In cel- estial matters, the north pole is up in the sky above the earth's North Pole. And Polar- is, the North Star, marks al- most the exact spot, This realm of the night sky is not as dense- ly populated as some. But a few constellations stand out with vivid stars. These are cir- ctimpoJar constellations. Not only are they grouped around the" celestial north pole, they also swing in orderly circles around the North Star. Most of Ihese stars are seen up there in our skies summer and winter. Polaris is in the centre nf a celestial circle about 160 times Lhe width of the full moon. Five circumpolar constellations lie within this circle and every calendar day they swing around the central Pole Star. Polaris ij the bright gem at the end of the Little Dipper's handle. It forms a straight h'ne with Uie two pointer stars in the Big Dipper. The constela- lation Draco, the Dragon, sprawls its starry tail between the two Dippers and arches to- ward the far side of the circle. Near where Draco bends back its snaky neck s the con- stellation Cephcus, (he King. II is a square with a pointed roof and looks like a dog house made of five starry diamonds. Next lo Hie King, almost oppo- site the Big Dipper is Cassio- peia, the Queen. The five brightest stars of this constella- tion look like a letter M or W, depending on which way up it is The radius of this faithful circle is 40 degrees. IU stars are all visible summer and winter at Quincy, Missouri, which is pretty close to Latitude 40 degrees North. Far- 'her south, Draco's nose and the tip nf the Big Dipper's han- dle sometimes dip below the horizon. Farther north, Polar- is is fixed higher in the sky. At the North Pole it stays di- rectly overhead and the turn- ing of the earth makes all the circumpolnr slars appear lo circle around [ho mnf of [lie sky. 24 hours, all our stars I MET' INTERPUCE PEAR, MEET PIS wee TOAP WHAT eo PE PLOOM 0' AT eoK w PA NOM ...AT PA POY'S CHRISTENIN, OUR OH LARGE PER HIS A MAN, IN HIS PHENOMENON A MASNUM A ALTERATION T' HIS 0' PA USUAL CHIANTI POTTLE1 WHILST BLONDIE-By Chic Young but one appear to mcve as the earth rotates around its axis. They move in ever widening circles around the fixed Nojlh Star. Every calendar day, the rest of the Little Dipper swings once around the bright gem star at Lhe tip of its handle. Draco and the Big Dipper, Cepheus and the Cassiopeia swing around larger circles. North of the equator, at least half of these stars are visible summer and winter. i V Outside the magic circle, the stars move in wider and still wider circles. At the equator, Polaris is near the horizon and see only half the north cir- cumpolar constellations at a time. Farther south, another set of circumpolar constella- tions swings around Lhe South Celestial Pole. However. Ihere is no fixed star there to mark the central spot. Every 24 hours, summer and winter, these southern constellations circle around a vacant patch of the sky. i. Andy sends a World Book Globe to Susan Burchfield, age 10, of Gaslonia, N. Caro- lina for her question: Exactly how do bees make honey? We know that the bees get their supplies from the flowers. But the flowers have nothing that tastes like a spoonful of delicious honey. Sooner or laler, almost every young per- son wonders exactly how the honey changes from this to that. Well, the recipe is rather complicated and only the honeybees can make il work. A summery flower dresses up in a petticoat of pretty petals and spreads forth fragrant per- fume. This flowery finery at- tracts a bee. And she knows thai such a blossom also has a small helping of sweet syrupy nectar, deep in its throat. The furry bee has a long, movable hollow tongue and very, very special stomach. She uses her tongue like a straw to suck up the nectar. When her tiny tummy is full, she flies back home to the hive. But her stomach is adding some very special chemicals to the nectar. When she spits out the mixture, it is stored in little white waxy cells. As the sweet syrup dries somewhat, those magic bee chemicals change the flower nectar into rich honey. There is enough to feed the workers and the growing bees. Some is mixed with gold- en pollen to make beebread for the babies. But plenty of honey cells are sealed with waxy lids to store food to feed the hive through the winter. Questions by of Herald readers .should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Ilox 7fn. Flunlinglon BeacH.
