Astro-Notes: H~ard more
discussion this year about the
Wise Men in the Christmas
story, maybe it's because the
new translation Bibles such as
the Living Bible use the word
astrologers in place of Magi
or Wise Men. The Wise Men
from the East were indeed
Chaldean astrologers. BabyIon was the cradle or astrol-·
.ogy and the sciences or astronomy, mathematics and astrology were all one science
then. Astrologers were respected for their knOWledge as
were doctors and other professionals.
Before the Middle Ages, astrologers had to do their own
star-gazing and therefore
were also astronomers such
as Tycho Brahe, Johannes
KeIper and Sir Isaac Newton.
Today we have ephemersis,
astronomical tables published
by the United States Government and the Die Deutsdhe
Ephemeride published inGermany to tell us the position or
the planets at any given time.
Trained professional astrologers today are mathematicians with some knowledge or
astronomy but not necessarily
astronomers since these computation tables are readily
available to them, the work
having been done by professional astronomers.

-:' ,;.: J(~
.\stro-. 'otes: The last two
columns discussed aStronomy
and mathmatics in relation to
astrology. Unfortunately probably only half of those claiming to be astrologers are
mathmaticians whocanaccurately calculate a natal chart
based on governrnent published astronomical tables.
Since astrology is based on
the theory that events on earth
and personal psychological
traits correspond directly
with your exact moment of
birth, unless you begin with an
accurately calculated birth
chart or a picture of the heavens as they were exacUy at
your moment of birth, a correct analysis or interpretation would be impossible.
What can be done to qualify
people to call themselves professional astrologers? Licensing and testing, as is done
in the medical profession or
passing a bar exam to become a practicing attorney,
are possibilities.

(June 22 through July 23)parents are hard to convince by
anyone outside the family that
their child could be naughty.
If proof is there, then they are
sure their offspring only behaved like that because of the
influence of some associate.
So the first trouble that arises with neighbors or at
school makes the Cancerian
try to protect and shelter
their miscreant. Their intense loyalty can be a rock
of security to a child or it
can be the sanctuary to which
it runs and hides when the
world is seeking retribution.
Cancerians are genUe people
and a naughty rebellious child
distresses them. They often
try to punish by showing how
hurt they are. Tears are
more likely to be used than S-1A91t.{
a stick. Confined indoors,
sent to bed, is their idea of
punisllirlg a child.

''Who's Who in Oak Lawn"
Mr. and Mrs. George Winslow, 4124 W. 100th st., share
their lives with us this week
in our Who's Who. Marty and
George came to Oak Lawn in
1948 with son Christopher and
three years later son John

when the boys began scliool;
that was about 1958 when she
joined the PTA and the Community Chest. She began her
work in the Chest by handling

and then president. There
were many professionally
conducted fund-raising campaigns during her presidency

At present Marty's chief
love in public life is the Southwest Symphony Orchestra. She
acts as publicity agent and
has coordinated the mailing
for the organization. Several
SRO seasons in a row have'
forced a move to a larger
hall. Marty is also a member
of the Oak Lawn Civic Center committee.
Marty was born in Buffalo,
New York, lived in many cities in New York and Illinois

George Winslow
Marty began in PTA as
program chairman at McDonald school. She again worked
her way to the presidency of
the organization. She presently is Cultural Arts chairman

to talk in front of crowds and
other skills that have aided
her in public relations for
the Southwest Symphony Orchestra.

District of Columbia and
started school in Baltimore,
Maryland, then Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania. He has three
degrees in Physics from the
Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie-Mellon

excellent concrete. Marty and
George were married on
March 25, 1944. They moved
to Chicago in 1946 when
George became a member of
the Chemistry Division of the
Argonne National Laboratory

creative art.
'The Winslow's son, Christopher, is married and living
in Baltimore, Md. He works
for the Department of Defense in a job requiring much
knowledge of computer circuitry and his wife teaches
fifth grade in Baltimore County.
John Winslow is now in

Cathy Zieler tells us how she became interested in
SJ.D. (Sudden Infant Death). Cathy is shown here with
her family, husband Jim and children, Jennifer, 6, Jim
Jr., 5, Jeremy, 3 1/2, and Julie Anne, 22 months old.
Jim is president of the Oak Lawn Chapter of the Combined Counties Police association and Cathy is an officer
of the Chicago Chapter of N.F.S.I.D.
The Zielers became interested in the NatiOl\a1 Foundation for Sudden Infant Death through a newspaper article
about a year and a half ago in which Carol Dargis, then
vice president of Fund Raising for the Chicago Chapter
and now president of the Chapter, requested volunteers
for a fund-raising event in the area. After talking with
Carol, they realized the desperate need for people to become aware of S.LD.S. also known as crib death. Carol
told Cathy about her daughter Cynthia, well laved and well .
cared for, who became the victim of the dreaded killer
of infants. The baby was 4 1/2 months old when she was
found lifeless by her parents. Since the baby was the
same age as the Zieler's youngest child, they became
quite concerned as 12,000 healthy, happy and well-cared
for babies die each year, nearly 600 of those in the
Chicago area.

for the Type A lunch which
is planned for high nutrition1 levels. The Oak Lawn high
school cafeteria is greatly
improved since last year both
food-wise and cleanliness.
Kids seem to be picking uP
after themselves and looking
after their surroundings.
On a recent visit to the
cafeteria, a few of us PTSAers
who visited the cafeteria last
year were very pleased with
what we saw. Monday, Sept••
16, the menu was orange juice,
hero sandwich, pickle, potato
salad, milk and a dish of
peaches for 50 cents which is
the cost each day. There is
one hot meal served once a
week; this week's special was
breaded pork steak and
mashed potatos. Prices are
kept low through federal food

Astro -Notes: When Uranus
enters Scorpio on Nov. 21,
a seven:yearperiod of change
will begin for Scorpios, Taurus, Leos, and Aquarians. They
won't be the same people after
the exciting experiences about
to come their way, Uranus
has been in Libra for the past
seven years; ask any Libran
if he is the same person he
was seven years ago and he
will tell you he has changed
and come to know himself
better than he ever did. Arians having received the opposition of Uranus have probably changed jobs or careers
in the past seven years.

Astro-Notes: Libran (Sept.
24 through Oct. 23) children
aim to please, they desire
harmony and pleasantness in
their environment, they want
to be loved and included in
what goes on, so do not usually create discord, because
their way is to coax, sweettalk, and ask nicely. In fact,
they get away with a great
deal just by use of charm.
If you have to punish them,
spankitlg seems ugly to them,
better to send them to bed or
isolate in some way. Show
your disapproval and limit
sweets, social occasions,' a
new dress or special treat,
and they will get the message.

A thought for the new year:
"I do not ask of any man
alive that he know all the
answers. I only ask a great
caring....an honest and humble
caring about what happens to
human beings and their
hopes......and that I ask of
myself as well as of another."
