Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, April 19, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEAN6 DIXON FRIDAY, APRIL 20 Your birthday today: To- day the Sun leaves Aries and enters the sign Taurus at 31 minutes past midnight EST. Today's natives of both signs are beaded for an expansive improvement HI most mater- ial affairs. Relationships at all levels thrive. Today's na- tives have a good sense of so- cial order.

TAURUS (April 20-May The social scene claims more of your attention. New busi- ness is to be put off. Family affairs expand. GEMINI (May 21-June Being definite about what you want helps a great deal. Re- sults are unevenly timed but, on an average, rather good. CANCER (June 21-July Ask Andy Plant or animal? Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dentw Encyclopedia to Lean- na Hanery, age 11, of Letlv bridge, Alberta, for her ques- tion: Do jou call a euglena a plant or animal? Anybody knows the differ- ence between a lion and a dandelion and most of us as- sume that we can distinguish between all the other plants and animals. The euglena, however, is a highly controver- sial figure on a miniature scale. This microscopic organ- ism can be called a plant and also an animal. Sorting the larger plants and animals is no problem. Sut sometimes it is just about im- possible to judge whether a macroscopic single-celled orga- nism is a plant or an animal. In most cases, the problem can be settled with a couple of simple questions. Can it move? If the answer is yes, are it is an animal of the Phylum Protozoa. Can it ase sunlight to manufacture its own food? If the answer is yes, almost certainly it is a plant. However, this simple little questionnaire breaks down when we submit it to the sim- ple little euglena. The answer o both questions is yes. Yes, the peppy midget can move around and yes, it can use sunlight to manufacture its group. One might expect that they took a firm stand on the euglena and classed it as plant or animal once and tor all. However, the question was never settled because Mother Nature hsrself is undecided. The euglena has the qualifying features of both a plant and animal and nobody can say that is is neither. As we know, plant and ani- mal classifications are tagged with handsome sc i e n t i fie names. The euglena has a dou- ble set of fancy scientific names because it is classified in both the plant kingdom and the animal kingdom. It is list- ed in the plant phylum Euglen- aphyta and also in the animal phylum Protozoa. In the plant world, we find it in the Order Euglenales under the family name Euglenaceae. About 150 individual species are grouped in the genus Euglena. In the animal kingdom we find the euglena in the Order Euglenoidena, under the family name Euglenidae. The genus name Euglena has the same name, whether we classify the various euglenas as animals or plants. Its plant and animal quali- ties give the euglena all sorts of survival advantages. In sun- lit water, it uses green chloro- phyll to create its basic food. Li the dark, it absorbs liquid nutrients through its skin. And when timas are bad, it can change its location.
