Junior Editors Quiz on LEAVES SWEETIE PIE Nadine Seltzer our OUR WAY BY J. R. V«iLLIA.V,j ,| « 4 • I* »*#-** Wl * «**IW> fa A QUESTION: What makes the leaves change color In the fait? ANSWER: Every leaf contains a green pigment, or coloring matter, called chlorophyll. During the warm weather, when the leaf is alive and circulating water and food, the green chlorophyll dominates the leaf. This is why leaves are green in the summer. But each leaf also contains pigments of other colors, too. There is a yellow one called xanthophyll; an orange one called carotin and a purple one called anthocyanin, In summer they are overshadowed by the green chlorophyll. As summer draws to a close, however, the food supply to the leaf is cut off and the chlorophyll gradually disappears. By mid- fall, the other pigments become dominant in the leaf and it turns yellow, red, orange and purple before falling off the tree. FOR YOU TO DO: Here is *j drawing of a girl raking leaves In the fall. Color the picture making the falling leaves bright yellow, red, orange or purple. (Linda Annorino of Minetto N. Y. wins $10 for this question. Send your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins AP Newsfeatures in care of this newspaper.
