o/ *«M(M »<ll rfettd f04ll4Ml* tt' rvkl you ever look up at a AS ckMd and think: that clotid in shaped like an animal or a mountain, or a snake? of course you knew it was just an accidental arrangement of the clotid. Constellations are somewhat the same. On a clear night you see thousands of stars in the sky. ! And here and there are groups of stars that seem to form special shapes. Such a group or shape is called a constellation. The shape or arrangement is accidental, and it is really only in our minds that it exists as an animal or object. For thousands of years people all over the world have looked at these groups of stars, find they named each group or constellation for the thing it looked like. Thus we have constellations named for animals, mythical heroes, and even a harp, two dippers, a chair, a water jar, and a crown! The names of the constellations In use today have come down from the times of the Romans and from the even more ancient Greeks. What the Greeks knew about the .stars came partly from the Babylonians, who lived near the Euphrates River in western Asia. The Babylonians named some of their star figures after an- of imagination* Forty * eight constellations were listed by the Gwek astronomers, alia „ more have been named since their time. It would be interesting to get a "map" of the sky showing the constellations and see if you can find some of the more famous ones such as: The Great Bear, the Little Bear, the Big Dipper, the Little Dipper, Orion, the Dragon, and Cassiopeia. Remember however, that we see different constellations in the sky in the summer and in winter. 1. FUN TIME The Riddle Bex What are the most mon causes of forest fires?

THE TRICK BOX Imals kings, and others queens, and after the heroes of their myths. Later, the Greeks changed many of these Babylonian names to the names of their own heroes. That's why we have constellations named after Hercules, Orion, and Perseus. The Romans made further changes. We still use the ancient names today. But the truth is that it in't always easy to make out the figures in the sky that the stars are supposed to form.

(Copyright Arkady 1H4) Hints From Heloise Nylon Net Is Versatile By Heloise Cruse Dear Gals: Stop, look, and listen. It's nylon net again. Miss Ann Love sent me the most IrcauUful nylon net tablecloth she made from yards of net. (Good net; she watches her bargains and picked the best bolt on the table.) She makes the cloths for practically nothing. Figure 2% yards of net costs you less than a dollar. Plus the fact this net in 72 Inches wide — a real bar gain. She bought some lace to edge It with. If you make a cloth 2% yards long, it will take 9 yards of lace to go around the edge of the cloth. Do not hem the edge of the net before sewing on the lace. Just machine Hitch the lace on the edge. But, Miss Ann was She bought Inexpensive _ lace at her local store. This Way when she washes the cloth nothing has to be ironed!. Being the smartie pie she is, the also bought some wide lace "with pretty little medallions in it. She took her scissors and cut these flowers out and hand stitched them on all 4 corners and stitched a few in the middle of the cloth. This was not xpensive. Check and compare our prices, gals. It only akes about a half yard of the vide lace Pick some with pretty designs that are easy to cut out. Miss Ann says, "If you use white net, it is very attractive over a pastel table sheet. Red or green net is very festive for the Christmas holidays, bronze over Thanksgiving, pure white for a bridal party, etc. And this cloth is lovely when used on a bare, highly polished table. "You can also make Individ ual place mats of the net am trim them the same the tablecloth." Most of us can't afford table cloths for every special occa sion, and the net is so inexpen sive we can have a larger va riety of colors suitable for the season or the event. What a fabulous idea for wedding gifts, etc. Imagine get ting a set of beautiful place mats? Oh, Miss Ann, we dearly love you for showing us the way- No wonder your name is Love It surely fits!
