Do All SpWtr* Spin tlii Sam* Kind Of W«b? .__ r tttt M« Wfcy T.C.L, ipkfen spin the same kind tetll _~_ winner «.' Rteky N. Y. Yesterday we talked about insects and how many different kinds of them there are. And just as most people don't know there is such great variety among insects; so we don't realize that every insect has many forms and ways of life Did you know that spiders are found in every sort of climate, from hot to cold? There are some that live in the air, on the ground, under the ground, on the water and even in it! And they vary in size from 3 inches to some that are hardly visible. So with this great variety of spiders you can imagine how many different kinds of web: they make. -- All spiders however, make -their silk for these webs in the ! same way. It is manufacture ! In certain glands in the abdo ; men of the spider. The silk i: 1 forced through many tiny hole: I from the spinning organs at the ! tip of the abdomen. The silk I comes out as a liquid and on '. contact with the air it becomes ; the solid thread we all know : Not all the silk that spiders ; produce is the same. The stick) ; silk is used in the web to catci '. prey. Next there are the stroni ; supporing spokes which are no ; sticky. (A spider moves up an ; down on these and so doesn' ; get stuck in his own web). Last | ly, there are the silks of th ! cocoons which spiders make t ; lay their eggs, and some ; these are fluffy, others har ; and fibrous. ; The garden spider is the on ; who spins the large wheel • lik ; web most of us are familia ; with. It is used only for catch _ prey, First the ipider nakes a rectangle of outer wavy lines, Theft the spokes of wheel an constructed next, hen three or four spirals. The losely spaced sticky spiral is bailt last, Among some of the other tinds of webs built by spiders are the following. A web that is built into a burrow with a lid- Ice opening on top that acts ike a trap • door. A bell-shaped web built entirely under water hat serves as home to the Eu- opean Water spider An unorganized mass of threads going jvery which way that is built >y the black widow spider. And here are even some spiders who build no webs at all — they run free and catch insects on the run!

Crane foel T., 21, recently gradu- ** ated from college. "But he is a problem," his worried father began. For Joel has refused to take 2 positions that 1 would consider wonderful. "He claims his personality must be in harmony with the job he accepts and he felt there there was no future in those 2 positions. So he has loafed around the house for the past 6 months, smoking cigarets and watching TV. "Now he things he needs an expensive vocational guidance analysis. Dr. Crane, is it true that there is a 'one and only' job best suited to each person?" ; Actually, there is no future in I any job. For the future is always in the worker who holds that job. Jobs are just rungs on the ladder to success. But rungs don't move upward; they are , stationary. It's the man or woman who steps on those rungs who does the climbing toward the top. Whether you now wash dishes In a restaurant or shine shoes or peddle newspapers and magazines, you can get to the top ii you realize your future lies in yourself. In fact, analyze Who's Who and you will find that the pres Idents of big corporations started out from all sorts of low ly rungs on the ladder to sue cess.

When 1 visited his widow this summer, 1 asked to be taken to the place where my brother's ashes were kept. She opened the door of a closet which was crowded with junk, old luggage and boxes jammed in every which way. Finally she unearthed a shoe box and said, "Here it is." I was speechless. I didn't even open the box but handed it back to her. I was shocked that my beloved brother's ashes were kept in such a place. I cut my visit short but it's been on my mind ever since and I don't know what to do about it. My sister-in-law goes to church regularly and says grace before meals. Please put my mind at ease with some advice. Am I overly sentimental?

Mary has gwie an out to b« a good mother to my children and she has been a wonderful wife to me.

And under the California Health and Safety Code, the ashes are not given out. They are either placed in an urn and kept In a bona fide cemetery, put In a mausoleum-type building, or buried in the earth (like a casket) with a marked grave. Ask your sister-in-law how come your your brother's ashes are in a shoe box in her closet? Dear Abby: My second wife merchant began, "tell your 'at once. tudents to take the best job available at the moment. "Urge them ta perform it to he best of thqir ability. But warn them to keep on the look- 3ut for better openings up ahead. That is still superb advice. It means that you should not remain idle or loaf like Joel. For every job offers helpful experience with people or business and mechanical gadgets, which in the long run you can capitalize on. So don't become so idolatrous that you worship vocational guidance. A battery of vocational guid- ince tests and a $500 fee may iclp assure you that as of this moment you are best equipped 'or dentistry or sales work, teaching or farming. But human beings are not fixed and unchanging. For example, today you might rate zero as a typist but inside of a few months, if you liave the grim determination to take a typing course, you may blossom out as the best speed typist in your area. Even a shy chemist or timid bookkeeper, can change in a few months and become a success at such a rigorous, extrovert- ive job as selling. All of our modern vocational tests offer helpful sign posts, furnish the motive power and the lubrication. Moreover, the best lubrication for success even today is still good old-fashioned "elbow grease," meaning diligent work. "Genius," said Thomas Edison, "is one per cent inspiration and 99 per cent perspiration." So Joel should quit mooching cigarets and get to work 6£T HIS BUT THEY CAN'T PfcOVE IT UCBSSE.

Dear Abby: That Tampa funeral diector who said the one who cries the loudest at a funeral is usually the one who did the least for the deceased during his lifetime doesn't know what he's talking about. My husband was killed in an automobile accident in July and I don't know who cried louder, his mother or me, but everybody at the funeral will tell you it was close. He was the pride and joy of his mother's heart and there was nothing in this world I wouldn't have done for him. I don't remember what I wore to the funeral, but my sister-in- law told me later that I had worn my heavy winter coat (in July)! And I couldn't tell you who rode where in the funeral procession. All I can remember seeing was that hearse ahead of me. Gee, that Tampa and I have been married for 15 years. My first wife died. I had 8 children by my first wife and none by my second.
