1 -Junior Editors Quiz on- LIONS SWEETIE PIE QUESTION: Why do lion tamers carry chairs? ANSWER: Lion tamers, who enter circui cages to make the big eats do tricks, are very brave. But, with all their courage, few of them ever go into a cage weaponless. The best weapons are small whips, which can be cracked in the animals' faces; pistols loaded with blank cartridges; and helpers outside the cage armed to shoot the lions if necessary. One of the simplest weapons Is an ordinary chair. It confuses the lion because he sees its four legs pointed at him and does not know how to tackle them. Nothing he has seen in the jungle quite looks like a chair. FOR YOU TO DO: Play-pretend with a kitchen chair. See how well you could use it if you were attacked by a lion. But be sure you only play-pretend. Wild animals are handled successfully only by experienced trainers—and not always then. (Mary Logan of Loekhaven, Pa., wins $10 for this question. Send your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this newspaper. If duplicate questions are received, Mrs. Higgins will select a winner.)
