-Junior Editors Quiz on- ROAD RUNNERS SWEETIE PIE By Nadine Selfzer OUT OUR WAY BY J. R. WILLIAMS OUR BOARDING HOUSE QUESTION: What is a road runner? ANSWER: This young man might be called a road runner because he is working to become a regular member of the track team by doing daily road work. But the real road runner is the bird in front of him. The road runner is a member of the cuckoo family. It is found in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. A large bird, it is nearly two feet long and has long legs. It is called a road runner because it often races down the road in front of travelers with its wings and tail spread. It can run amazingly fast. It is also sometimes called the snake killer because of its ferocity in attacking snakes. FOR YOU TO DO: During your next visit to the too, see if there is a road runner among the birds on display. If there isn't a zoo close by, look up the road runner in a bird book and read about his habits. (Margaret Peters of Lansing, Mich., wins $10 for this question. Mail your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP News- features, in care of this newspaper. If duplicate questions are received, Mrs. Higgins will make the final choice.)
