SALOME’S STARS HOROSCOPE
R.F.D. BY MIKE MARLAND
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might
not like some people’s idea of a surprise. But
you could be in for a pleasant shock when
someone finally sends a reply to a request
you made so long ago that you almost forgot
AMBER WAVES BY DAVE T. PHIPPS
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s a time to
expect the unexpected. So don’t be surprised
if a decision that just recently seemed final
suddenly opens up and leaves you with anoth-
er chance to make an important choice.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Taking a
different tack on a work project might rankle
some colleagues. But the positive results of
your innovative course soon speak for them-
selves. Celebrate with a fun-filled weekend.
THE SPATS BY JEFF PICKERING
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Meeting new
associates can be awkward, even if you’re in
a high positive phase right now. Best advice:
Make them feel comfortable, and you’ll soon
forget your own discomfort.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s a good time
for you social Lions to blow-dry your manes,
polish your claws and look like the Fabulous
Felines you are as you make new friends and
influence the influential.
A WING & A PRAYER BY BILL ABBOTT
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Ex-
pectations run especially high this week, and
you should feel confident in your abilities to
take advantage of what might be offered. A col-
league has some advice you might find helpful.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A
recent flurry of activity leaves you in need of
a little breathing space, and you’d be wise to
take it. Close family members should have
an explanation about an emergency situation
that just passed.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An
insensitive act makes a difficult situation more
so. But try not to waste either your physical or
emotional energies in anger. Move on and let
others fill the clod in on the facts of life.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Decem-
ber 21) It’s a good time to look into that train-
ing program or college course you’ve been
considering. You might have a good place to
use those sharpened skills sooner rather than
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Education dominates much of your aspect
during this week. You might want to start
checking out those summer session courses
that could help advance your career plans.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Progress often comes in fits and starts. But
at least you’re moving straight ahead with no
backsliding. You should soon be able to pick
up the pace and reach your goals in due time.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be wary
of a deal that gives confusing answers to your
questions. Remember: It’s always risky swim-
ming in unknown waters, so you need all the
help you can get to stay on course.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of
bringing people together and creating close
friendships wherever you go.

1. Name the band that was started by a dentistry student, a physics student and an art student
before adding a bass player.
2. What is “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home)” about? Who released it?
3. The music from the Italian song “O Sole Mio” was used for which Elvis Presley hit?
4. Who released “People Are Strange” and when?
5. Name the song that contains this lyric: “Now it’s been ten thousand years, Man has cried a
billion tears for what he never knew, Now man’s reign is through, But through eternal night,
the twinkling of starlight, So very far away, maybe it’s only yesterday.”
5. “IN THE YEAR 2525 (EXORDIUM ET TERMINUS)” BY ZAGER AND EVANS IN 1969. IN
VERSES GIVING DATES 1,010 YEARS APART, THE SONG LAMENTS ALL THAT MAN HAS

WHETHER GOD IS GOING TO BE PLEASED.
