Junior Editors Quiz on- EXPRESSIONS QUESTION: Where did the saying "below the salt" originate? ANSWER: Salt has always played an important role in the life of man. It is mentioned more than 30 times in the Bible. One of its most important uses, especialy in the early days, was to preserve food. Salt also made food more tasty so, at big feasts and banquets, the position of the salt shaker or salt cellar on the table assumed considerable importance. Important guests were seated above the salt cellar; unimportant ones below it. This drawing shows how an open salt cellar in the middle of the table divided the diners by class in the old days. The King and his honored guests arc sitting above the salt. Three of the king's retainers are seated below the salt. FOR YOU TO DO: Salt figures in many sayings. See if you can find out the origin of the expression "not worth his salt." (Linda Campbell of Highland Park, III., wins $10 for this question.
