THE^PHAilOS-TRIBUNE aniT tOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA ' Fun of All Kinds Puzzles—StoriM— -Thingsto Do—Ptn Pol$ Duck Migration Follows Centuries-Old Tirnetable COLUMN Color in Your Own Picture of Ducks in Flight . Glance overhead in autumn and you are apt to see moving dots in the sky that are really migrating ducks. They'come so fast and go so fast that you only see them for,a minute. They are in a hurry. Where did they come* from? Like other birds, ducks begin as eggs, and most of thrones that fly south through the United States in the fall were hatched in Canada—where their parents | and grandparents of many generations were hatched. Most of them: migrate : to the southern part of the U.S; —. California, Texas, -Louisiana, Georgia and Florida. Some' continue' south, to Mexico. ..Others go .even farther and take the long flight across'the seas to the West Indies and Venezuela. In their flights between the northern breeding grounds and the southern wintering places, the decks follow time schedules that have remained unchanged for centuries. The first ones to take off for the journey are'the blue-winged teals."vSome 'of these small ducks are halfway down the Mississippi River Valley by the middle of August. The next to start out are the' pintails,, and they reach the peak of their flight by October. Last of all come the mallards, who are about .a month .later than-the pintails. They are on .their way-by November. . ^Changes in the weather, from year to year may make the ducks » little late, though it never - stops their flight. Stronger than temperature, wind, rain and.show, is-the urge they have to fly south each fall. The parade of ducks down the North American flyaway* is older .than any man-made parades we know about From" one year to the next, the order of flight is the same; blue-wings, pintails, then .mallards. And the timetable, by which; they travel varies by only a few 1 days. So,..when you see those fast - moving '-. dots against the sky, or hear -faint honkings overhead as you lie in bed, you can.'pretty well decide which type of duck is going by. +-Mabel Slack Shelton SURE/I CAN REMOVE THE CORD WITHOUT BREAK!NG]T| ORUNT-YIN&THEHAND- Act of Kindness Got Barry to Rodeo in Style .-.Barry had been looking forward to this day for most of the slimmer: It was the opening day of the rodeo.

The rest of the folks were going in the car but Barry saddled Copper and left early, cutting across the sagebrush hills. He had just.gone down intd a" small gully when he heard the'bawl- ing of a calf. At first he wasn't even going to slow clown. "If there's a calf out.here the mother can't : be ' : far off,", he thought Then he heard it- again — so low and pitiful that he knew it must be in some kind of trouble. He rode over to a clump of sagebrush and saw the small, brown creature crying piteonsly and -trembling with fear. "What's the matter, -Teeme?" he asked, just as another glance showed him a. gray form-standing motionless in the brush. "So, that's it;" he exclaimed. "An old- coyote waiting to "grab you. Well,- not this time," and he picked up a rock to help send 'the .creature on its way. 1 Barry thought longingly of the rodeo. He couldn't take the calf all the way down there and he couldn't rleave it. There was nothing to do. but turn around and go home. -As they::struggled-back it seemed as if every minute stretched into an hour. "He put the calf in 1 a 'pen and was'just going to mount his horse again when a carstopped at 'the front gate; "Hi, ( there, son!" called the -driver!!' "Can I get some- water for this car? I've been delayed Toy a flat tire and I'm due at the rodeo' in .half an hour." "You. sure can, Mr. Barker/' beamed Barry, who had .recognized the famous cowboy from. his pictures. 'Tin going- there •myself as fast as I can make it." "Then maybe you'll ride with me and show me the way. I can't lose any more time." "I sure will," replied Barry lappily. As he took Copper back to the pasture he waved to the calf and called, "Thanks .Teenie. This makes everything even — and then some." \ Royal Pin-Up Puzzle Medley: • * ADD-A-HEAD Add a head to an abbreviation for '"left end" and'have "a malt drink"; add another Those Busy Bees Don't Know When To Quit Working head and-have "a- story"; still- "Busy as a bee" is the phrase we've heard.

'Here ths flower nectar and pollen u stored. . ,• The most.important and! the largest, member of" this littl* community is the queen bee. Living only three or four years, the queen lays eggs alt day, be- in? catercd;to and waited on by another-class of bees called workers. The .worker bee's toil from dawn till dusk, gathering nee,tar (which is the sweet juic« of the flower) and the pollen '(which is the golden dust that we can see in the center of the blossom) \ will become thick: honey. The backbone of the hive. th« workers are always fer les, averaging about 1% .'inched long. Equipped with six legs and two pairs of wings, the. worker bee has a life span of only six or seven weeks. The worker bee has two feelers in front and a -stinger on the rear of her body. When she stings someon* the stinger is- torn from.- her body, causing her death. Last, we have the drones, whose only purpose is to marry the new queen. After this -wedding takes place, all other drones are driven from the' iive. You might think,it- odd that bee gets married,-but, this : i» true. After :the old queen has laid her eggs, a new one. is hatched.. The first act of the new queen is to scout the hive and-kill all the unhatched queen eggs, so ; she -will have no .other rivals. She does not bother those' eggi containing drones'or workers: A-short time after she.is born .the new queen emerges from • the hive on her. wedding flight, 1 meeting one of the drones in ,the air. When the new queen returns to the hive to lay her eggs the old queen leaves with her loyal subjects following. —Lorena 'O'Conner' Brain Teaser How many.names of the foreign lands below can'you : com'plete? : 1.
