Junior Editors Quiz on SYMBOLS QUESTION: What is the bundle of sticks with nn axe on the back of a dime? ANSWER: This is a symbol called the Fasces. In th* days when Rome ruled the world, it was a bundle of birch or elm sticks tied together with an axe in the center. Fasces were carrier by men called lictors, who were attendants of Roman magistrates, and were important in ceremonies of that time. The meaning of the symbol is unity. An old legend tells of a man who showed his sons that if you had a bundle of 12 sticks and wanted to break them in half, you could do it easily if you broke each stick separately. But when you put them together in a bundle, it was impossible to break them. The axa is a symbol of power or strength. So the Fasces means that there is strength in unity—in sticking together. FOR YOU TO DO: Besides the Fasces on the back of a dime is * motto: E Pluribus Unum. See if you can find out what it means. (Steven R. Harris of West Englewood, N.
