Dear Header Your plirasp "Ihc least chance" is a good term he-cause there is always the chance that a girl can got prcganl. There is some debate about whether ovulation can oc- cur during actual menstruation, but since it does occur then in animals a number of author-1 Hies Ihink it is possible for a woman to ovulfile at this time. fn the normal cycle of events, there arc about days between Ihe onset of periods, although Ihis varies a great d e a 1. The egg or ovum is released about 14 Hays before the onset, of Ihe period. This means it occurs midway between Ihe periods and Ihis is Hie time a person Is most likely to pet pregnant. However, women are noted (or being irregular and this Is particularly (rue for young girls when all of these complex mechanisms arc first beginning to function. the ovum is first released, it is called ovula- tion and if iL meets with a sperm cell a pregnancy begins. The fertilized ovum nestles down in the special tissue which Jines Ihfi womb. In Ihe preced- ing two weeks Ihis tissue has grown quile a bit to provide an adequate nest for the fer- tilized ovum. If it Implants and starts growing a pregnancy en- sues. the ovum is not fertil- ized or does not embed then the extra tissue wtiich nature has built up for the pregnancy Is dis.-n: je.d. This dismantling pro- cess occurs about two weeks or M days after the ovulation. Then it is rebuilt again anil gets ready for the next ovulation (vhirli should occur midway be- tween the periods. The rhythm method of birth centre! relics on the fact that, ovulalion occurs approximately 14 days before the onset of the period, in a woman who is reg- ular. If lliis period can be iden- tified il is known ttiat she is most, likely to get pregnant at this lime, give or Lake a few days before or afler Ihe 14 day midpoint. If she is absolutely regular (which doesn't happen very often) by avoiding inter- course during Ihcse periods of Lime, pregnancy can he avoid- ed, hut. I would like to empha- size to you again that there is no lime that anyone is com- pletely safe from getting preg- nant This is why FO many other methods of birth control have been developed. The best, sur- est way lo prevent an unwanted pregnancy is not to engage in any activity that can result in this unfortunate event. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CTTAHLES n.

You can be sure that Mother Nature designed the tiger's stripy coal. You can also be sure that it is meant to help him to thrive and slay alive. H worked so well that nature gave those stripy coats to all the young tigers who came along later. In fact, it was so iuccussful lhat nature used ;omcwhat the same idea lo help hundreds of other animals. However, each animal wears i different design. After all, he leeds to look like himself so that he is not mistaken for somebody else. The w o r d "camouflage" means a disguise, a, special dis- guise thai blends in with Ihe scenery. Nature knows all there is to know about camouflage and uses Ihis clever trick lo help her animals to protect them- selves. Most of them wear out- fits lhat are specially designed to the scenery armmrl them. The leopard's spotted coat blends with the speckled shadows among his leafy roughs. A r a h b i t s outfit matches the earthy browns of the ground. A deer's soft colors blond with tho soft shadows under the trees. Jn tiger country, the dazzling sunshine streaks the tall gol- den grasses with dark stripy shadows. The tiger's coat is camouflaged with black and yellow stripes to blend in with the scenery, just when he needs lo keep out of sight, A bright- eyed deer must stare very hard to spot him creeping up close enough to pounce. Of course, a wideawake deer sees the slight bends in the grass in lime, lie dashes away and the tiger's paddy paws cannot catch him on the run. The meat-eating liger feeds on animals lhat feed on grass. You might want to give more help to the hunted animals and less to the hunters. But nature has no favorite children. The hunted ones are camou- flaged to hide them, just long enough to use their wits and escape. The hunters are cam- ouflaged to help them to catch food to stay alive long enough to leach their cliildren to hunt All this fits into a magnifi- cent worldwide plan. Nature likes to have a multitude of dif- ferent animals and ralions Ihe food so lhat all of them gel their fair share. If all the deer escaped, there would not be enough greenery to go around. They would starve and BO would Ihe hungry tiger. Those camouflaged outfits help to keep the animal populations down to just the right numbers. As a rule, the tiger catches only the sick or careless deer. TlK wideawake ones escape and have wideawake children so the liger must, keep on Irving his very best to catch them. Most animals wear outfits to help them hide or hunt. A leafy green caterpillar Is camouflag- ed to fool the hungry birds. Bui some birds wear gaudy plumage for another reason. True, they match the gaudy jungle [lowers where they live. Bui mama birds love pretty colors and choose husbands who wear snappy oultits. In this way, nature makes sure lhat the parent birds have another generalion of children. Quesllons asfcefl TJT cnrfrltnn of Herald readers should be mailed lo Ask Andy, P.O.
