p—-"Junior Editors Quiz on— HORSES QUESTION: Whan did the first horsw reach America? ANSWER: The history of the horse in the Western Hemisphere is strange. More than 50 million years ago, the Eohippus— the earliest ancestor of the horse—lived in what is now the western United States. Later this fox-sized animal developed into the Mesohippus, the size of a collie dog. By the time of the Ice Age, horses like the modern horse had developed and lived in what is now the United States. Then they disappeared. When the first explorers reached America, they found no horses. The first ones were brought to America by the Spaniards under Cortex in 1519. The horses that later roamed the Western Plains were the descendants of the ones brought to the New World by the Spaniards and later settlers. FOR YOU TO DO: There are many kinds of horses which serve many different purposes. If there is a county or state fair near your home, visit the horse barns and shows to see the different kinds. If not, read a book on horses from the library. (The $10 award for this question goes to Patsy Childress of Trooper, Pa. Mail your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this newspaper. If similar questions are received, Mrs". Higgins will select the winner.)
