PHAROS-TRIBUNE ana* LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPtikT, INDIANA FOLKS Fun of All Kinds Puzzles—Stori \ Thingi to Do—P«i '" Duck Migration Follows Centuries-Old Timetable 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 the ones that fly south through the United States i'n the fall-were hatched In Canada—where their parents and grandparents of many generations were hatched. Most o'f 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 tbe southern wintering places, the ducks follow time schedules that have remained .unchanged for centuries. The first ones'to take off for the journey are the blue-winged teals. Some 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 a little late, though it never stops their flight. Stronger than temperature, wind, rain and snow, 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 daj's. 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 SORE .'1 CAN REMOVE THE ,CORD WITHOUT BFEAKWG IT OR UNTYING- THEHAND- HERE'S HOW BRING THELOOP DOWN THROUGH THE HANDKERCHIEF ...AND UP OVER YOUR HAND-THEN PULL FREE: Everybody's, Pet By Frances Gorman Kisser The mail box on the corner Is everybody's pet; They feed it when the sun ' shines Or when the day is wet. i It stands on one leg only And opens wide its .mouth To gobble letters, going North, East, or West, or South; .

"What's the matter, Teenie?' 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. ' Barry thought longingly of the rodeo. Be couldn't take the calf all the way down there and he couldn't leave 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 a pen and was just going to mount his horse again when a car stopped at the front gate. "Hi, there, son!" called the driver. "Can. I get some water 'for'this car? I've beeri delaye3 by a flat tire and I'm due at the rodeo in Tialf an hour." "You sore can, Mr. Barker," beamed Barry, who had recognized the famous .cowboy from his pictures. "I'm going there myself as fast as I can make it.: 1 , ' .',-.'. - '" "Then maybe you'll ride with me and show me the' way. I can't lose any more time." : • "I sure will," replied Barry happily. , , As he took Copper back to the pasture he waved'to the calf and called, "Thanks • Teenie.

You c*n find scraps of cloth in Mather's sewing basket, any soft woolen material will do. Cut a piece of cloth six inches long by three inches wide. 1 Now choose a piece of cloth of different color and cut it five hiv.e, made from a thin wax which they make in their bodies. The hive has hundreds of six-sided rooms. Here tht flower nectar and pollen' it stored. The most Important and th« larrest member of this' little community is the queen bee. Living: only three or four years, the queen lays eggs all day, being catered to and waited on by another class of bees called workers. The worker baes toil from dawn till dusk, gathering nectar (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, inches long and two inches wide. Place the small piece of cloth on top of the large piece, Leave an even margin on all four sides. Draw a line from top to bottom,, dividing the pattern into t\yp halves. Thread a needle with colored thread or with embroidery floss. Sew the two pieces of cloth together along the line you have drawn. Sew one-half of a metal snap to each inner side of the large piece of cloth. Fasten the snap so that the needle-book is closed and press it under a book to make it lay flat. You may want to embroider a pretty flower on the front.

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 hive.. You might think it odd that a bee gets married, but this U 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 eggs containing drones or workers. A short time after she is born the new queen emerges from the hive on her wedding flight, meeting one of the drones in the air.
