Junior 6dlt«r Quit en- MERMAIDS • • • WHICH HAVE ORIGINATED KOrA THESE ANIMALS • • • QUESTION: Were there really such things as mermaids? ANSWER: The old sailing ships were very slow; seamen had plenty of time to be impressed with the mystery of the sea, to hear legendary stories or spin them themselves. One legend concerned mermaids, which the sailors' romantic imagination pictured as graceful beings, half-girl and half-fish. They were supposed to sit on sand or rock, combing their long golden hair and attracting mortal men by their singing. In Greek mythology, there were three sea nymphs called the Sirens who also attracted passing ships by their singing. If one came too close to a mermaid, the legend said, she would slip a magical cap over your head and you would have to live in the sea wifr her thereafter. There are certain vsea animals which may have suggested the mermaid idea to imaginative seamen. One is the seal, with a head somewhat resembling a human being. Another, the dugong, has a habit of standing upright in shallow water ~ which makes it look like a human, if seen from a long way off.
