Cr&hanv By LILLIAN GIBBONS Ever since Caesar atralghtened out hi calendar mesa there have been date difficulties The solution of having a leap year once In four doe not account for tlma astronomically. There were eleven minutes and even a few aeconds each year that went off Into the fourth dimension. And why February should have to take cara of tba "leap dsy," nobody knowe. Julius arranged the calendar to bava II day In each of the odd - number months, and thirty in each of the cix alternate. Except February. Nobody waa around to stick up for February, ao It bad to have the odd 20 days, with 80 In the leap I year. But when Augustus wss em - I peror, he said he wouldn't plsy If j ha couldn't have SI daya In his ! month, just Ilk Julius. 8 - they gav him his extra day, and took one away from February, leaving It 2 days, with 29 In the lean year. The data difficulty Is tlll perpetuated. Babies born on February 29 are cheated out of a birthday cake for three yearn, and then Be Thrifty On Monday See our New Seaion Style they are a triumph and at very mo derate price.

But not all year divlilbl by four are lesp years; century year must b divisible by 400. Hence, a baby born on "leap" day, 1806, would not get another birthday till 1904. because 100 wasn't a leap year. This matter of a few aeconds Is important, too. By the time Pope Gregory thought about equinoxes. the extra aeconds had become ten daya. Tbia date difficulty wa overcome by suppressing ten daya from March, 152. To avoid Tim making this mistake again, he arranged that only the century years divisible by 400 should be lesp years, Extra Day in Leap Year First Noted By Priests In Egypt Centuries Ago Shadow of Great Pyramid Found to be Different in Computing Seasons By MOSES B. COTSWORTH Leap - day la put Into our calendar every fourth yesr, to keep the calendar In accord with the solar year, which Is 5 - hour and 48 minutes longer than th usual year' 365 daya This nearly tt - houra excess can only be Included as the calendar' SMth day in each leap - yesr. We kno.r that the Egyptian were the first people to discover the exsct length of he year, nd consequently the need for Inserting the leap - day. But It Is only within the last year that we hav re - dlsi - overed how I they did It. The writer has been ; privileged to bring (his knowledge to light, after a world - wide research. The evidenrea he hsa ao - cumulated Indicate that the F.gyp - i tlan discovered th length of the year and th need of a leap - yeer, by measuring the shortest yearly ahad - owa of the great pyramid. Th great pyramid was th most perfect ot Ui eerles of pyramids, which were purposely designed to keep agricultural operations true to th seasons. Its erection culminated experiment made by the Egyptlsn astronomer priest who measured sun - shadows at noon and the passage of stars at midnight. In ordr to fix the recurrence of the Egyptian seasons. 52 - Degree Slope The slop of the pyramid was built to tb angle of nearly A2 - de grees. so that it apex would cast. th moon shadow on Ha meridian sines three day are gained In 400 years of tfme. Several people In Winnipeg have had this little ralsndar trick pliiy - ed on theni by the sunk. They are cheated by Tim and bv Cuessr from having cake, candlca and presents. Charles W. Graham. 570 Montrose: Mrs. It Y. Kllvert. 0 Gertrude ave.; Paul Nanton. 229 Rnslyn Road, ars some grown - ups who on Monday will receive birthday congratulations. Mrs Oeorg Steven, now of Montreal, formerly of Winnipeg. Is another. Manr children In Winnipeg picked the" 29th for their birthday. But they've turned the table; Instead base - line, where It could be eaelly and accurately measured. During their date equivalent to our 27 to 29 of February, th high priest measured the shortest receding sha dow at noon, by laying their snored rod on th meridisn floor. The measuring rod w not les than 4 - feet long, because the shadow's length of February 28 was 4 - feet shorter than It was on Fobru. n - L - - - - - ry 27. They found that the short - est shadow's length In every veer that White could n menaured on 4 - foot rod, and that during each of three ouccesaive years the shadow l.nnlk.n.J fnn ......... ana uiil nays wrre luumru it tween each of thoas 3 years. Next they made th Important discovery that at the end of 4 years their dav - count nifiur e I . to .Hi diys Instesd of 363. and that the shsdow leaned bark to lea than Its length 4 yars before. Therefore It th" lean - year's shortest sha - dow at noon nu - amircd a foot, that for the first of 3 yenis is feet long; the second 2'v feet; the J , . nj, I 1 1 - - , third 3'. fret, but In the fourth yenr the .With diy's V - ng'h was 4' feet and p - ached beyond the 4 foot rod. Then next day was leaip - day when the noon shadow re - anptarp Its shadow Imped beck 4 ft, to less than S a foot in length. Visible en Feb. 29 Tf the pyramid's pointing spx hsd not since been destroyed, together with the ralng - etnna which originally formed the perfect shadow slope, that evidence would now he completely visible on Feb. 29. The reality of thst phenomenon is nevertheless born out by photographs of the shadow chsnge I hid taken laxt February nnd which I am hsving taken this year on Icap - dny and March. The great pyramid's slope of 62 - degrces now yearly cuts off the sha - j dow on March 1 when the sun peeps over It e.pex. 44 feet high, end shines down the slope without, making any noon - shadow until Oct. 14, of being deprived of birthday goodie they are showered with them, being all the mors Important on this special dev.

Her mother ey shs get a birthday every pay day. Bobble Slater, 1003 McDermbt, was born In th General hospital, where bis father I an orderly. That wa an Inside job, Mr. Stork, picking th 29th to bring Robbie "out of the Everywhere Into Here." Norman Hicks, of 43 Selkirk, comes from a family where lm - when th noon ahodaw r - pptar bees use th lower sun I then behind the apex. Those dates, March 1. and Oct 14. wer not so numbered In th ancient Egyptian calendar, but ar th dates In our calendar to which the date In the old Egyptian calendar correspond. Thess season - finding dates were of trie greatest Importance In Ervpt. It wss only after menv trials In building pyramids that their designer at the great pyramid fixed It slope at r2 - drgrees, as the basis of whst Kter proved to be their successful experiment In finding the true length of year, by the use of the leap - year measuring of the pyramid' hortet shadows. Knowlsdg Secret Those early astronomer not only I nept mat most vbiusdw nowuge - J?,. from olhfr ,,, - h. from all outside the priesthood, by never Inserting leap - day in their public calendars. That k. - ;.; a mighty weapon In priesthood hands, until Julius Caesar conquered Kgypt and wrung' from Soslgenes. lha Egyptian tronoiner, their vital secret that the leap - day Insertion wa only msde In th controlling calendar used by the priesta on the 10th. 20th, and 80th days or fach month, to declare to the people whst agricultural and soTnrth operations must be done during the next 10 d'O's. Julius t'seser's adopted rule, In - vsriahly Inserted a leap - day In every 4 years. That was too much BSBB fiortant events ar alwavs orcurr - ng. Norman ha 00 leas than two palra of twins for brother and sisters, besides odd ones. Mttl Lillian Stepko, of 1007 Bur rows ave., will celebrate her first birthday on Monday, and John Echewskl, of 1109 Alfred ave. will celebrate hi fourth. Other little leap year children, born In Winnipeg, ar now In other cities and towns. Mr. and Mrs. Joo Hearst. 891 Balmoral, hav a little girl who is away at school. Mr. and Mrs. C. B.

That frao'lomil difference canned an ceis of 10 leap - days to be inserted before Pope Gregory's r:form of the calendar In 1DKX Pope Gregory establiehed his rule wheioby three leap - day re omitted during every 400 years.
