•Junior Editors Quiz on* THE SEASONS QUESTION: Why do they call it Indian summer? ANSWER: Often after the first cool weeks of autumn, there will be a period of summer warmth. The skies are blue, the weather is mild and there is usually a soft haze in the air. But these warm days don't last long and cold weather follows. This period, which often occurs during October or early November, is what we call Indian summer. This is the name early Americans gave to it, but no one knows exactly why. The name has now spread to England, where Indian summer is also known as St. Martin'* summer or Allhollow summer. FOR YOU TO DO: Paste this picture on a square of cardboard and color it. The skies should be blue, the clouds fleecy white, tht leaves brown and the flames and the imaginary Indian red. (Stephen T. Monson of Richmond, Calif., wins the $10 award for this question. Mail your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this newspaper. If duplicate questions are received, Mrs. Higgins will make the final selection.)
