TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Duties and responsibilities must be efficiently scheduled today, or you could end up working very hard with little to show for your efforts. Predictions of what's in store for you in each season following your birth date and where your luck and opportunities lie are in your Astro-Graph.

CANCER (Jun« 21-July 22) Situations where you use both your logic and charm will be carried off successfully today. In areas where emotions govern your actions, setbacks are likely.

THE FAMILY CIRCUS® B y Bil Keane POLLY'S POINTERS Polly Fisher Bad egg test By Polly Fisher DEAR POLLY -- I was cooking eggs the other day and one of the eggs wouldn't stay in the bottom of the pan -- it seemed to want to stand on end. I went ahead and cooked it anyway, but when the eggs were done, I peeled the odd one and found out it wasn't any good. Is there any way to tell if eggs are good or not before cracking them open? -- MRS. J.W. DEAR MRS. J.W. -- Generally, when eggs are actually spoiled, yon can smell them -- they're pretty hard to miss! However, a good test to see whether eggs are not fresh is to put them into a large, deep bowl filled with cold water. The spoiled eggs will float, the fresh eggs will stay submerged. By the way, small blood spots in egg yolks are not harmful and eggs containing them are perfectly safe to eat. They may not be attractive, but they won't hurt you. If you come across such a spot in a hardboiled egg, it can be easily scooped out and discarded, leaving the rest of the egg intact. -- POLLY DEAR POLLY -- I've always had a problem with manicotti shells tearing while I'm trying to stuff them. Now I fill my cake decorating tube with the cheese filling, attach the tip with the largest hole, and squeeze the filling right into the pasta tubes. Easy and neat. -- FRAN DEAR POLLY -- Soft Soap (the kind that comes in a pump bottle) and cornmeal make a very refreshing facial scrub. Simply moisten the face and throat, pjace a small amount of soap in the palm of the hand, add a small amount of cornmeal and rub into a lather. Apply over the face and throat (avoiding the eyes). Wet finger tips and massage gently. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. -- IDA DEAR POLLY - I crochet a lot and I don't like to mark up my pattern books to keep track of where I am in my pattern. I keep count of my rows with one of those hand-held adding gadgets that you usually use to tote up your grocery bill in the supermarket. If I have to put my crocheting down, I can look at the adder when I come back to know exactly where I left off. - B.J.D. DEAR POLLY -- A perfect place to keep a cake as fresh as the day you baked it is in your microwave oven. -- MARILYN Polly will send you a Polly Dollar ($1) if she uses your favorite Pointer, Peeve or Problem in her column. Write POLLY'S POINTERS in care of this newspaper. DEAR POLLY -- We have been having a problem with ants all over the house. They even get into the bedroom onto the dresser if we leave something sweet there. Do you know how we can gel rid of them? -- ANN DEAR ANN -- First, try to track down those pesky critters to find out where they're getting into the house. Then, you can use an ant repellant spray in those areas. However, if you'd like to try using something safer, you might sprinkle ground cinnamon along the ant trails and around doors and windows where they might be getting in. The ants seem to be repelled quite effectively by the cinnamon and it leaves a nice warm fragrance in the room at the same time. Other home rememdies to apply along the trails are white vinegar, mint leaves or borax powder. Sometimes one of these products will work for a while, then lose its effectiveness, even when reapplied. If that happens, switch to one of the others. If you can trace the ants all the way to their nest, you can destroy it by pouring boiling water over the hill or by squirting a mixture of ammonia and water down into the hill, using a plastic squeeze bottle. Naturally, you can control where your little uninvited guests go by instructing the family to keep sweets and other foods out of the bedrooms'. -- POLLY DEAR POLLY ---Here's an idea-for a bridal shower gift that won't be set on a shelf to be forgotten. I take a large grocery bag, wrap a towel around it and put in a roll of paper towels, foil wrap, plastic wrap, bathroom tissue, a can of cleanser, a bar of soap, a bottle of dishwashing liquid and other cleaning supplies. All of these items are ready to use when needed, the first day the newlyweds move into their new apartment or house. Since these items are hard to wrap, just leave the bag open and make a dishcloth rosette to fasten on top as decoration. -- DORIS DEAR POLLY -- If you roll raisins in flour before stirring them into cake batter, they won't sink to the bottom while the cake is baking. Add a teaspoonful of jam or jelly to plain cookie dough. The cookies will have a nicer flavor and stay moist longer. -IDA Polly will send you a Polly Dollar ($1) if she uses your favorite Pointer, Peeve or Problem in her column. Write POLLY'S POINTERS in care of this newspaper. DEAR POLLY -- Is there any reason you shouldn't use leftover mayonnaise jars and similar jars for the home canning of fruits and vegetables? I've heard both yes and no on this subject. What do you think? - L.L.C. DEAR L.L.C. -- DON'T USE SUCH JARS FOR CANNING. The reason for this is that they don't have caps that give an absolutely air-tight seal, which is a necessity for safe preservation of home-canned foods. Also, the glass used in inch jars may not always be of the best quality and could break while sterilizing or pressure-processing the jars of food. Only use approved canning jars specially designed for home canning and always use fresh sealer caps made for that particular type of jar. Clean leftover food jars, however, can be very useful for storing foods for short periods of time in the refrigerator, and they're wonderful for storing dry staples such as rice, beans, pasta, etc. on the kitchen shelf. Bat the few cents saved by uiing such jars for canning is just not worth the risk of food spoilage and potential poisoning. -- POLLY DEAR POLLY -- To get odors out of plastic storage containers, I put the containers in my freezer for a few days. Some very strong odors may take a bit longer, but it does work. - MARY DEAR POLLY -- I am a 70-year-old grandmother and I have several grandchildren with various addresses all over the country. When some of these kids write to me, they enclose a self-addressed envelope. That way, when I send them a letter in return (in that envelope), the address is always right. I don't have to worry about incorrectly copying house numbers or ZIP codes and having the letters returned to me. -- HAZEL ( DEAR POLLY -- To get the most out of an emery board, after wearing smooth each end, cut the board in half with a scissors and you'll have two new ends. Cutting through the , use vege- few drops of vinegar. The icing will not harden and the cake will be easy to cut. - ELSIE Polly will send you a Polly Dollar ($1) if she uses your favorite Pointer, Peeve or Problem in her column.

Lutheran Weddings Don't Always Stand on Ceremony By Abigail Van Buren · 1982 by Universal Press Syndicate DEAR ABBY: Having been a Lutheran pastor for over 40 years and having performed more than 1,200 marriage ceremonies, I was shocked that you accepted without question all the statements made by "Ohio Lutheran" concerning Lutheran wedding practices. "Ohio Lutheran" stated: "No secular music is allowed; the floral arrangements must conform to specific regulations; the bride and groom may not write their own marriage vows." While the above is true in some Lutheran churches, it is not true in all of them. I personally have officiated at weddings where the soloist sang "Because," the couple wrote their own vows and a friendly neighbor brought in the flowers. There were even guitars and jeans. In some cases, the bride was obviously pregnant. But I'm sure there was just as much rejoicing in heaven over those marriages as in marriages where the strictest regulations were enforced. A LOVING LUTHERAN DEAR LUTHERAN: After "Ohio Lutheran" had his say in this space, I learned that under the umbrella of the Lutheran" church are 11 different kinds of Lutheran churches, each operating under its own rules. My apologies. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I had houseguests over the Easter holidays. They were my husband's cousin and his wife. Another couple made the trip with them, but they stayed at a nearby motel because we couldn't accommodate them at our house. This other couple did everything but sleep-here. They came for every breakfast, lunch and dinner. A day after the two couples left, my husband and I received a very nice bouquet of flowers. On the card was, "Thank you for being the world's greatest host and hostess." The names of both couples were on the card. I thought it was very nice of them to thank us for our hospitality by sending flowers. Next thing I know, my husband tells me that his relatives were still waiting for a "thank-you" for their flowers. Abby, is it necessary to send a thank-you for a thank-you? The flowers were their way of thanking us, so why should I have to thank them for their thank-you? If you think I should thank them, I will. But personally I can't see why. Thank you. BEWILDERED IN MINNESOTA DEAR BEWILDERED: Your guests expressed their thank-you with flowers. To thank them for their thank-you would be gilding the lily. DEAR ABBY: Last Mother's Day everyone told a favorite story about his mom, and this was mine: Mom and Dad had some friends (acquaintances, really) who made a habit of dropping in at dinnertime so they could get invited to stay for dinner Mom was bighearted and she always asked them to stay. Finally, it got to be a little too much, especially when the wife (I'll call her Mrs. Jones) always ran off without offering to stay and help Mom with the dishes. One night while the Joneses were here for dinner, Mom decided to do the dishes while they were still eating. She calmly put all the dishes on the floor and whistled for our dog whose name was Nanny Goat. Nanny Goat came into the dining room and proceeded to lick every plate clean. Mother then picked up the dishes and nonchalantly placed them directly into the cupboard! Needless to say, the Joneses never dropped in at dinnertime again. ONE OF FOUR KIDS Everybody needs friend*.

How and why a mother's smoking can harm the fetus or threaten the baby's respiratory system after the child is born is explained in the booklet ·"Smoking and the Two of You" published by the American Lung Association, according to Mrs. Margaret Hinehey, a Livingston County Board member. ·When a pregnant mother smokes, harmful gases from the smoke enter the blood and pass through the placenta directly into her baby's circulatory system. These gases narrow the baby's blood vessels and those in the placenta, and they force oxygen out of the red blood cells of mother and baby--cutting down the amounts of badly- needed oxygen and food that are delivered to the developing child. ·Women who smoke while pregnant have a higher percentage of stillborn babies. spontaneous abortions and premature deliveries than do women who don't smoke, and their babies are more likely to be born undersized or to die soon after birth. ·After birth, breathing smoke-filled air can cause a baby's tiny airways and lungs to constrict, blocking or impairing the child's breathing. And because babies and young children breath much faster than adults, they inhale more pollution in proportion to their total body weight. For more information about smoking and pregnancy, write to the American Lung Association of Western Missouri, 2007 Broadway, Kansas City, Mo. 64106 for a copy of "Smoking and the Two of You."

Q THE ANSWER PL ACE The American Library Assn. Who can be an astronaut? Q. I heard that short men actually have an advantage iu being selected for astronaut training. Is that true? A. It used to be, but not any more. The first seven astronauts, named in 1959, all had to be under 5 feet, 11 inches tall to fit into the small Mercury capsule. They also had to be less than 40 years old. Today, however, neither age, height, sex nor occupation are necessarily drawbacks for getting into space. The basic qualifications are simple: You must be a U.S. citizen in good mental and physical condition. NASA sets' other requirements for each job. For instance, a pilot astronaut must have a bachelor's degree in engineering, physical science or mathematics and 1,000 hours of jet pilot command time. A mission specialist, on the other hand, doesn't need to know how to fly, but must gain training in jet aircraft. He or she must have a B.A. in engineering, physical or biological science or math and at least three years' experience in that field. America's first woman astronaut is expected to head into space in 1983 or 1984 on a shuttle. We now have six women in training, four with doctorates in science and two with medical degrees. Q. Would it be worth going to the moon to salvage what was left there by the American astronauts? A. Possibly. But you'd probably want to be selective. If you picked through the lunar "litter," you'd find used body-waste bags, walking boots, cameras, a television unit, hand tools, an e n v i r o n m e n t a l control system, portable life-support systems and other equipment not needed on return flights. Two items left behind by Apollo XI astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin Jr. would probably be of more interest because of their historical significance: a metal American flag and the Eagle's descent stage, which bears a plaque reading: "Here men from the planet earth first set foot upon the moon.-July,., 1969, A.D. We came in -peace for all mankind." Q. Who's ahead in the space race -- the Soviet Union or the United States ? A. The "race" seems too close to call. But some people believe there's good reason to put the United States ahead just now in view of our recent success with the Columbia Space Shuttle and our close satellite approach to Saturn. In addition, we not only were the first to put men on the moon but have made five moon landings since. However, the Russians gave us a close run in the early days of space exploration. They beat us into orbit when they launched the Sputnik earth satellite in 1957 and followed that up in the same year with the first space traveler, the dog Laika, in Sputnik II. Then, in 1961, the Soviet Union launched the first manned satellite, Vostok I, with cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. He orbited the earth once in that historic flight. The same year, Alan Shepard Jr. became the first American in space, manning a sub-orbital flight in Mercury Freedom VII. Since that time, both the Americans and the Russians have claimed firsts in space_ We even shared the honors in the first cooperative international space flight, which linked Apollo XVIII with Soyuz IXX, in 1975. Q. Did people ever really think the moon was made of green cheese? · A. Perhaps, but it's not likely. In fact, the whole idea is believed to have started as a whimsical tale, springing from the early days of cheese-making when someone observed that a "green cheese," or one that hadn't had time to age properly, resembled the moon in shape and coloring. The moon is really made of pieces of glass, ground rock and larger pieces of rock. Some of the soil grains brought back to earth were found to actually be tiny glass balls. Moon rocks have many elements found right here on earth, including aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, oxygen, hydrogen and helium -- but no green cheese.

By Lawrence Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - In my family no one seems to have cancer. None of my grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, aunts or uncles has ever had cancer or any diagnosis or suspicion of cancer. Fourteen of the 17 aunts and uncles who died were past 80 and the two who are living are both past 80. Is it possible there is something in our blood that prevents us from having cancer? Suppose a person with cancer were given a pint of blood from one of us, would it reduce or kill the cancer? DEAR READER Remember that we really do not know what causes cancer. We do know that a number of factors are involved. A person may be highly resistant or highly susceptible to cancer and we think that factor may be inherited. If none of your close relatives has had cancer your chances of having a cancer are greatly reduced. In one study of populations 8.9 percent of individuals with one close relative with cancer also developed cancer. When two close relatives had cancer, 16.2 percent developed cancer and if three had cancer, 27.4 percent developed cancer, too. The individual's resistance to cancer may be related to his immune system. One theory is that we all form cancer cells but when our immune system is in good shape it will destroy these abnormal cells just like your immume system destroys harmful bacteria. Finding ways to increase a person? immunity to cancer cells is one of the promising areas of cancer research. The immune mechanism or whatever mechanism is involved U not likely to be pssstd on as easily as taking a blood transfusion. Interferon, now being studied as a cancer treatment, is carried in your bloodstream, but in such minute amounts that obtaining enough to test is a problem. That is why new methods to make interferon have been developed, including producing it with bacteria and yeast through genetic engineering. Everyone needs to understand the basics of cancer and to know about early signs. I am sending you The Health Letter number 14-8, Cancer: A Fact of Life, for this purpose. Others who want this issue can send 75 cents with a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope for it to me, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, NY 10019. DEAR DR. LAMB - We would like to know if there are any calories in the following vitamins that we take: natural C, B complex. Multiple Vitamins plus iron, vitamin E and calcium with vitamin D? I am 56 and my husband is 61. We are both in good health but take these as a supplement. DEAR READER - I get this question frequently. There are no calories in vitamins. They do not provide energy. Some of the vitamins are important in the enzyme system in your body. Here they aid in your cells' complex reaction of breaking down your energy containing foods, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The energy (calories) comes from thelood, not the vitamins. Of course, if you are vitamin deficient and the calories from the food are .not released then you will be tired. You don't need all those vitamins. The multiple vitamin is quite enough and contains all the RDA levels of the important vitamins yon need. If your diet is adequate you shouldn't even need that. And your calcium supplement is far below your daily calcium requirement*. You should try to get enough calcium by using for- Ufiedskirn milk daily. \.
