-Junior Editors Quir on- DANDELIONS SWEETIE PIE By Nadine Seltzer QUESTION: How did the dandelion get its name? ANSWER: The dandelion is a yellow flower that grows wild throughout most of the temperate climates of the world. Its green leaves are smooth with irregular notches. The French thought they looked like lion's teeth and that's what they called them in their langauge—"dent de leon." Most people think of dandelions as weeds that spoil flower gardens and lawns and they try to get rid of them. But dandelions are very hardy plants whose roots sometimes grow three feet in the ground. The little girl in this picture is just finding out that she must dig very deep indeed to root the dandelions from her lawn. FOR YOU TO DO: Many of the names of our common flowers come from phrases. See if you can find out where we get the names: daisy, rhododendron, chrysanthemum. (Carolyn Clark of Akron, Ohio, 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 the winner.)
