Today's winner is: DANNY HOFER, U, Nashville, Tenn. There is a tradiUon that the kite j was invented by * Greek. His name was Archytas of Tarentum and he lived about 400 B.C. But research by scientists has shown that certain Asiatic people and some savage tribes such as the Maoris of New Zealand have been using kites from time immemorial. So we Cannot trace the origin of the kite to any one man. In some countries such as Korea, China, Japan, kite flying has been a national pastime for thousands of years. Actually, it is believed that before kite flying became a sport in these countries it had a religious character. In fact, with the Maoris it is still connected with religion and when they send up a late they chant a kite-song. Korea, China and Japan are probably the countries where kite flying is most popular. In market places, while the tradespeople wait for customers, they often send up a kite to amuse themselves! Chinese and Japanese kites are of many shapes, such as birds, dragons, beasts and fishes. They vary in size, but some are seven feet in height or breadth, tnd are constructed of bamboo strips covered with rice paper or very thin silk. In China the ninth day of the ninth month is "Kite's Day" when men and boys go up to the nearest hill and fly their kites. In some places the cord near the kite is stiffened with a mixture of glue and crashed glass or porcelain. The kite flier maneuvers his kite in such a way that he can allow his cord to drift against his opponent's. Then he gives a sudden jerk and the other late is turned loose and destroyed. In Asia there are musical kites which have perforated reeds or bamboos. They make a plaintive sound which can be heard for great distances. Sometimes ignorant people, who believe such kites can frighten «way evil spirits, keep them flying all night over their homes! * * * FUN TIME Tht Chuckle Box Bob: Can you write your name with your eyes closed?
