All About Town More on Astrology by dot monahan In our first article on this subject we attempted to give you a -little background on astrology. -At one time astrology played a"'large part in the affairs of nations. As we entered a purely technical age, man felt machines could solve all his problems. Only God and ourselves can do that, but we need all the help we can get. Astrology can provide a better understanding of the many problems -of coping with the opposite sex. The average age of marriage partners has dropped in the past two decades, but the divorce rate has risen considerably. -Knowing characteristics of the various signs of the zodiac, of which there are 12, will help us to understand that some things in our partner's nature will remain unchanged. Of course, the wisest course is to move in with his parents and observe the family under difficult situations for say, some 10 years or so. You will find out what he or she is really like. If you haven't time, then do as a young friend recently told us. "I can't stand a man with no hair. So each guy I date, I ask to meet his dad. If his hairline is intact, I know my date has a good chance of saving his." If all else fails, try astrology. ' Now no one is all-good, nor all-bad. There is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us. All signs have something to offer. All signs should not marry, however. Please don't send us letters, saying, "NOW, you tell me." This is a preventive measure, and we hope curative to a degree, but we Air Too Dry In Your Home? ! - _K1 JjUtDj lfflhssil WEST BEND / "SOLID STATE" automatic HIMIMFIER solves dry-air probtems End uncomfortable dryenss with the "home beautifier" humidifier.

They happen on 34th St. and this is Benjamin. How does astrology work? Beats me. We only know it does. There are among the signs, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sag- attarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. We can only say that for us, it is fascinating. We can better understand our children. Our horoscope tells us we are very compatible with Libra people for friends, and some of our closest friends are just that, Libra. We are equally incompatible with signs best not mentioned, lest anyone take it personally, so while we are not able to chart personal horoscopes and have no desire to learn, we find astrology delightful. Charting horoscopes borders on fortune-telling, and trouble comes to us soon enough without searching for it. So let us just say the sun and moon and planets are said to effect our lives. It is argued "A king and a pauper could have been born within yards of one another at the same exact moment. How could their lives be similar in any way?" True. But a king could be advised to be more careful of expenditures. In casting his horoscope, it could imply expenditures of a governmental nature, while in the case of the pauper, that he not sell his meager grain supply at this time. See? But let us bother ourselves, instead, with characteristics. While we had hoped to begin the series with Aries, which is the first sign of the zodiac as it rules the head, we will start with Aquarius. Let us see our Aquarian as a child. Many Aquarian children tend to be advantaged over some of the other signs. They are often advanced for their age, and by their teens often possess a surprising insight into human nature, and adult situations find them quite at home. They are individualists, and while they are extremely obedient, honest children, they do not like being pushed in their school work. They are very kind, and if you should happen upon a boy or girl helping an old lady across a busy street, chances are he or she is a Scout, or an Aquarian. They possess a great love of people and animals. An Aquarian child should have a pet whenever possible. They make good and loyal friends, and often are very popular. They are active in school affairs and often excel in sports. They are good company for they have inventive minds, but do not necessarily feel a need to lead. They are peace-loving and run a mile from a fight. And what kind of people do our Aquarian children become? Destiny shapes us all, but for the most part, an Aquarian child becomes a like-adult. They love the out-of-doors and make patient fisherman. Not so much for the catch, do they take to the river or lake, but for liie chance to get in tune with nature and the solace. Aquarians are often out-going and talkative. Because they are delightfully eccentric, one never knows 8 Times HtraM, Carroll, la. Thursday, NAY. 5, 1970 what ideas will come bursting forth and on occasion they are very quiet, appearing withdrawn. Those who do not understand our Aquarian .friends, do not realize it k but a resting of a very active mind. The Aquarian is noted for his tove of humanity. He very often is so engrossed in curing the injustices of this world, he nelgects his own loved ones. He is easily hurt, and while he does not ? nurse a grudge, he is slow to iorgive, and may hold himself ^Forever in reserve against the offending one. He can be priggish, opinionated, and snobbish. He is, however, an intellectual snob, rather than a caste snob. He does not make small talk easily; instead, prefers to spend his time with the "thinking" set. They care very little for money for money's sake, but see it only as a means to acquire the cultural experiences and possessions that Aquarians enjoy. They neither are generous, nor m ^ with money. These people expeet far foe much of others' behavior, and rarely see their own faults. But they are fascinating people to know for they are unpredictable, and eccentric in a charming fashion. They are not averse to setting off on an adventure in the middle of the night if so inclined. Once we met a man who said he had driven two states and 800 miles for a piece of chocolate fudge pie, on the spur of the moment. "You must be an Aquarian!" and he replied, how could we have known? An Aquarian sees the most illogical behavior as logical. They care not at all what other people might think. They feel adventure is around every corner, and are not afraid to turn that corner. Aquarians, as a rule, are not happy in merely commercial endeavors, but excel in fields beneficial to man and his advancement. Aquarians make excellent nurses, doctors, social workers and reformers. Many are gifted teachers. They often have a natural talent for literature, and many are successful in publishing and advertising. And what kind of marriage partners do they make? If you are lucky enough to have married one, you have, at your side, the most desirable mate of all the 12 signs of the zodiac. They are good-natured, kindhearted, modest and intelligent. They possess a great sense of empathy, and you are assured of an understanding shoulder. They all compatible with several signjk but another Aquarian is their rast possible mate. If you should read of a husband- wife missionary team working in Africa, or some other undeveloped area, chances are, they are a pair of heavenly- matched Aquarians. Aquarians must have freedom. While they have a fine appreciation of home and hearth, they save it for the day's end. They have a fine sense of justice, and are loyal. Rarely does an Aquarian ever become unfaithful, and because of their own conduct being ^bove approach, they have irtmute trust in their marriage partner. Woe be it to the one who tries to build a fence New Draft Ruling Has Advantages .. A recent Selective Service directive extends to a young man, with a high random sequence number which will not be reached during the year, the right to request the withdrawal of his deferment, thereby permitting him to leave his lottery year in an available status, and to enter a lower priority selection group on January 1 of the succeeding year. The only deferments which may be relinquished are for students, and occupational, agricultural, paternity and hardship. If a registrant retains hit deferment through his lottery year he will be exposed to the lottery in file year he roses his deferment and returns to a class available for service. He will then be considered for induction along with men with the same lottery number of that year. A's lottery number — random selection sequence number — is the. number drawn by national lottery. All registrants born between 1944-1950 are initially members of the 1970 lottery whose numbers were determined by a drawing held on December 1, 1969. Registrants born during 1951 have been assigned a similar sequence number for 1971, based.on the drawing of July 1, 1970, while those born in 1952 shall receive a number for 1972, drawn in 1971, and so forth. Once drawn, the registrant retains that random selection sequence number as long as he is registered with the Selective Service System. A random sequence number is considered as reached when a non-volunteer registrant is issued an order to report for induction by his local board, and all other registrants in his local board with that or a lower number are likewise considered as being reached. Due to variances in dates of brith, enlistment, deferment, etc., the availability of numbers will vary between Selective Service local boards, and all boards will not have the same highest reached number. The highest number to be reached by a local board in Iowa is estimated to be 190 in 1970. The registrant with a 1970 lottery number who is deferred and has a reached number may wish to continue his deferment and become exposed to the lottery at the expiration of his deferment. Should he hold a high random selection sequence number which may not be reached for induction by his local board during the current lottery year, he may request, in writing, that his local board cancel his deferment and classify him in about an Aquarian. They are like the birds of the field. Hold out your hand, and they may sit lightly on your palm. Grasp at them, and they fly away. So there you have an Aquarian. You say, you married one, and he or she isn't as advertised here. Then you just aren't handling your little bird in the best manner. More on astrology soon. Next week we visit with more interesting people and hope to bring you another in the Good Old Days series very soon. RIESBERG PROMOTED David J. Riesberg, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew J. Riesberg, Carroll, has been promoted to airman first class in the U. S. Air Force. He is an electronics systems repairman assigned to a unit of the Air Training Command at Keesler AFB, Miss., and a 1969 graduate of Kuemper High School. Top Cop New York City's new police comn-tesioner is Patrick V. Murplry who pounded a beat in Brooklyn 25 years ago. I-A, as available for induction. When a registrant leaves a lottery year in Class I-A, and his number is not reached by his local board, he will be placed in a lower priority selection group on January 1 of the subsequent year. If he is deferred, or otherwise not available for induction, and reaches age 26 without being issued an order to report for induction before his 26th birthday, he will be placed in a lower group for selection, and will not be called unless the demand for manpower is increased. A registrant who is classified in an available classification, and has a reached number but has not been issued an order to report for induction, will be carried over into the following year for thnee months. If he is not needed for induction on the March call of that year he will be removed from the extended priority selection group and placed in the second priority selection group with the exception that any member who would have been ordered to report for induction to fill the last call of the first quarter of the year, but could not be issued an order because of regulatory or statutory procedures, shall remain in the extended priority selection group and be ordered to report for induction as soon JUS practicable. The curre^year s random selected numbers are considered the first priority selection group through that calendar year. When a call is filled for the first month of each new year, and for the remaining months of that lottery year, the following priorities will prevail: 1. Men postponed from a prior call. 2. Volunteers for induction. 3. Extended priority selection group — lowest available random selection number first. 4. First priority selection group — lowest available random selection number first. 5. ^ond and successive reduced priority selection group — lowest random selection number first. 6. New 19 year olds of that year — oldest first. 7. 26-35 year olds — youngest first. 8. 18^-19 year olds — oldest first. Glenn R. Bowles, Iowa state director, has requested all high schools in Iowa to recommend a member of the school's staff to serve as an adviser to registrants. The Selective Service system will furnish new, updated 'information to these advisers, which includes information on registration, classification, deferments, and also voluntary service, conscientious objection and hardship. Any bona-fide draft counseling unit will also be placed on a mailing list, and should advise the state director of their desire, and furnish a complete mailing address. Around The Rotunda Iowa Regents Are Opposed to a 'Super Board of Education' By Harrison Weber DES MOINES - The State Board of Regents in a formal statement has indirectly expressed its opposition to the creation of a "super board of education." The Iowa Coordinating Council for Post High School Educ* tion had sought an opinion from the regents, among , others, on establishing such a board which has been suggested by some politicians. Historically, the regents noted, the governance of post high school education in Iowa has been successful in terms of both "adequacy and efficiency." The state universities under the Board of Regents, the area schools under local boards (with supervision by the State Board of Public Instruction), and the private two-year and four-year institutions under their individual boards have, according to the regents' statement "collectively presented a very adequate opportunity for post high school education to Iowans." At the same time, the regents observed, "the system has avoided the cost and inflexibility inherent in the administrative 1 a y e r i n g of supervisory bodies. The span of control of the various governing boards is not so broad as to foster the impersonal approach, but is sufficient to permit the emphasis and attention which each segment of post high school education requires. "The result has been the encouragement of innovation and diversity in the system. Consequently, this board sees no rea­ son at this time to recommend any change in the governance of post high school education in Iowa." Coordination of higher education in Iowa is presently accomplished on a voluntary basis by such inter-institutional groups as the Coordinating Council for Post High School Education, the Association of Private Col-1 leges and Universities, the reagent committee on educational relations and the committee on extension services cooperation. In addition, the regents pointed out, the governor and the Legislature through their power to appropriate funds, ex- e r c i s e a major coordinating function. They are assisted in this effort, the regents' policy statement continues, by such agencies as the state comptroller and the Office of Planning and Programming. This effort will be further enhanced, the regents said; when the new program budget format is fully operational. This format will give "increased visibility" to the purposes for which educational funds are being requested. Jaycees to Have Honors Banquet (Times Herald New* Service) MANNING — Manning Jaycees have set Nov. 18 as the date for their first Honors Banquet. Duane Monson is general chairman of this event, which will honor six persons in the following categories: outstanding farmer, educator, religious leader, Jaycee. Boss of the year award and a distinguished service award will also be: made. Don Haines, State Jaycee president, will be the guest speaker. Nominations for any of the honors may be made with Mr. Mo# son. Mr. and Mrs. Darle Rowedder and family moved during the weekend into the Otto Hagedorif) home opposite the Sacred Heart Parish Center. The Dick Vehrs family had been occupying the house but have moved to California, where Sgt. Vehrs will be stationed. The Dean Vollstedt family, who have been living in Scranton, will move into their home which the Row- edders vacated. Experience to date, said the regents, would indicate that these voluntary efforts show 'genuine promise" and should be continued and encouraged. "On the one hand, this approach has avoided the costly layering of administrative units; on the other, this board believes that true cooperation cannot be mandated or forced by statute, particularly regarding private institutions. This approach also has the advantage of continuing the direct relationship between various segments and the governor and the Legislature. "We do believe, however, that the effort would be enhanced by greater recognition on the part of the governor and the Legislature of the efforts and the role of the voluntary Coordinating ^Council for Post High School Education. At the present time, such recognition is largely confined to academic circles." The regents also question the advisability of a "master plan" for higher education in Iowi. ' 'Experience elsewhere would indicate that master plans may serve some useful purpose either where state systems art large and growing (New York, Illinois and California) or whera there are large, unresolved issues dividing the elements of the state system." The regents said neither condition exists in Iowa. "Our state system is relatively small, is growing at a slow rate, and enjoys among its constituent elements a spirit of cooperation which is unique and refreshing." The board did suggest, however, that planning by the various segments of post high school education should be brought together for general information and coordination using the professional educators at Iowa institutions on a continuing basis.
