-Junior Editor Quiz en- MERMAIDS Daily Times Herald Features . . . Comics Friday, October JO, 1970 Sense of Smell Answer 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 wife her thereafter. There are certain .sea 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 Vdugong, has a habit of standing upright in shallow water which makes it look like a human, if seen from a long way off. ; (Jessica Kott of New Britain, Conn., wins a prize for this question.
