-Junior Editors Quiz en- NATIONAL BIRD QUESTION: What bird almost became our national emblem? ANSWER: Ifs hard to believe now, but the turkey almost won the honor over the eagle. In 1787, our nation's fathers chose the bald eagle as the national emblem. The emblem pictured the eagle with its wings outstretched, a shield on its chest, an olive branch in one claw and a batch of arrows in the other. On the national coat of arms, the eagle carries a scroll in its beak which says: "E Plurtbus Unum." This Latin phrase means, "From many, one," symbolizing that the United States grew from many peoples and states into one nation. There was a move, however, to make the turkey the national symbol. Benjamin Franklin thought it should be made the emblem because it was prominent in our history since the time of the Pilgrims and was native to the New World. The bald eagle is also found only on this continent. The first coin bearing the eagle In the U.S. was minted in 1789. FOR YOU TO DO: Trace your own picture of an eagle, Lay a quarter down on a table with the eagle side up. Put a piece of paper over the coin, holding it tight against the coin's surface. Shads the paper with a lead pencil and you'll see the shadow of the eagle eome through. Joseph Ogonowskt, Arlington, Calif., wins $10 for this idea. Send your idea in to this newspaper.
