Wouldn't it be nice if every time you opened an oyster you found a pearl? Of course, they might not be so valuable if there were so many of them, but they would still be beautiful! Now most mollusks, or shell- covered water animals, line their shells with nacre or mother-of-pearl. This lining is to protect their delicate bodies from contact with the rough covering. This lining is made by deposits of a series of milky, satiny, transparent films. When they harden, they produce that beautiful mother-of-pearl. A pearl is really the result of a mollusk, or oyster, being sick. What makes it sick is mat a grain of sand or some other foreign' substance gets into the shell and irritates the animal. The animal can't remove it, so it covers it with layer after layer of that substance--and a pearl is formed! Genuine precious pearls are produced by various kinds of pearl, oysters called "Melea- grina." Sometimes the ordinary type of oyster we eat produces a pearl, 'but it is of inferior quality. You see, the type of shell determines the quality of the pearl. The ordinary oyster has a dull kind of shell, so it can't produce really beautiful or valuable pearls. There is a family of fresh water mussels that produces fresh water pearls. These are often valuable and are called seed pearls, the smallest type of pearls known. "Cultured" pearls are r e a l pearls. They are made by inserting some irritating material, plus some nacre-forming substance, into the body of the animal. It is practically a surgical operation! Artificial pearls are hollow glass beads lined with a substance made from the scales of certain fishes and filled with wax. They can be quite beautiful, but, of course, are not as valuable as real pearls. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Jane: What did the boy have after he ate 3 apple pies and six cakes? Sue: I don't know.

Now, thanks to the generosity of three strangers who read of his heroism, Randazzo is getting back some of the money he lost, It was revealed yesterday a South Carolina housewife, a Wisconsin paper manufacturer and an anonymous New Yorker contributed $40 to him.
