The Horoscope (Copyright, 193d, by tht McClure Newspaper Syndicate) Saturday, August 12, 1939 Strong adverse aspects are discerned in the horoscope for today, but astrologers find benefic influences also active. The morning is a time to avoid important business matters. Merchants should be cautious in making purchases for the fall trade which is to offer many opportunities for profit, though bad judgment may attend selections of stock. Women are fairly well guided by the stars, hut they should limit their activities to strictly feminine interests. Good luck attends weekend journeys. Love affairs flourish under this sign which speeds up courtships and hastens decisions to marry. Weddings will be numerous through coming months. The seers point out that 'many cheering indications of human well- being are offset l>y the fact that just before any crisis there is much effort to enjoy the good things of life. This evening is lucky for writers of letters or articles for the press. Power of expression is stimulated under this configuration. Love missives, however, are perilous. Evil portents relating to finance and economics are seen at this time. Japan and Italy will face serious problems. The United States will have need of wizards to handle government funds, for there will be extraordinary drains on the national treasury. Revolutionary activities are prognosticated for several countries. Brazil may suffer from uprisings. The United States will have to combat subversive organizations. Persons whose birthdate it is have the augury of a year of advancement that may meet with obstacles. Both men and • women should avoid nerve strain. Children born on this day probably will be artistic and refined. Many of these subjects of Leo are too fond of luxury and amusement. NEIGHBORLY NEIGHBORS By OSCAR HITT PETERS f PETERS!
