S Your Birthday Today: Every move now contributes or reduces future resources. Make an occasional sacrifice Why turtledoves? Andy sends a complete 10- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Matt Bedell, age 12, of Wichita, Kansas, for his question: Why are certain birds called turtledoves? The free-flying turtledove was not named for the stodgy turtle, who never gets himself above the ground. Language experts suggest that originally he was named for his sweet ro- mantic song, ivliieh seems odd because his only notes are soft cooing stretch sounds. One has one's imagination translate this cooing note into the word turtle. But the fa- Fiddling mous bird may have named long before people learned to write and in the of pleasure and time to build a stronger personal future.

(CP) About 100 persons from Can- ada and the United States are fiddling away the weekend in this small community about 60 miles northwest of Toronto. And what's more, about other persons are watch- ing them do it. Dead man's mother killed EDMONTON (CP) The mother of a man killed in a traffic accident several weeks ago died yesterday when she was struck by a car just west of the city on Highway 16. RCMP said Marceline Mi- chel, 42, of Duffield, was struck as she attempted to cross the west-bound lane of the highway. Her son, Roderick Michel, was killed when he was struck by an RCMP patrol car which he was attempting to flag down. The occasion is the Cana- dian open championship rid- dling contest, being held here for Hie 21st year. Contestants are here from Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Ohio, Pennsyl- vania, Kentucky and New York. The youngest entry is Ricky Cormier, 10, of Bay Ridges, Ont., while Hie oldesl is Har- old Benson, 80 of Bolivar, N.Y.

The playdowns began Fri- day with the finals scheduled for Saturday night. Finalists compete in three women's divison, the over-18 and under-18 divi- sions. A total of S2.KO is up for grabs, with Ihe big winner collecting far cry from the top of wK" the contest started in 1950. meantime perhaps the original coo-ah word came to sound somewhat like "turtle." Dancing sunbeams bring the first warm touch of spring- time, when bursting buds bring the tender green colors and early field flowers add fresh fragrance to air. The bird world provides the sounds that herald the spring. ever you live some certain bird is sure lo perform his duties on schedule. In most of North America, he is a robin. In England, the people pre- pare to welcome the spring when they hear the song of a certain cuckoo bird. In parts of Eurasia, spring is an- nounced by the cooing of a bird called turtledove. the turtle or the the day difference. I'3RA (Sept.

The House has already had an exploratory four-day debate on British admission to the com- munity but no vole was taken.

Camp fires prohibited EDMONTON (CP) The de- partment of lands and forests announced today lhat open camp fires now are prohibited in the Rocky-Clearwater forest, west of Red Deer. A spokesman said the prohi- bition on open fires also re- mains in effect in Ihe Bow River and Crowsnest forest. No open campfires are al- lowed except in fireplaces in established campgrounds. Twenty one fires are burning in the province, 10 out of con- trol. Hardest hil is the Foolner Lake area in northwestern Al- berta. Thirteen fires aie burn- ing there, eight out of control. His soft sweet cooing sounds rather like the song of our mourning dove. True, it does not sound much like the word turtle, but our remote ances- tors originally intended his name to sound like his song. Scientists have mixed opin- ions about why he and other birds do their best singing in (lie springtime. They suspect that the real reason is to warn other males of their species away from their territories. Most likely this is true, but we ordinary folk feel pretty sure tliat tire females interpret those songs as sweet ser- enades. Even if this is not so, surely tre song of her mate must make fl nesting female feel more secure. The turtledove has 300 or so pigeon-type cousins living temperate and tropical cli- mates throughout Ihe world. Like all his kinfolk he is a sturdy bird and a strong flier. His plumage is speckled with rusty browns, nicely accented j with white patches on the sides and neck and white tips on his I tail feathers. At least one tur- tlcdove species wears a collar, somewhat similar to those of the ringdoves and ring-necked GOREN ON BRIDGE pigeons. All doves and pigeons are renowned for their family af- fection and most of them mate for life. But every spring the couples renew tlieir tender ties with courtship rituals. The males strut with magnificent masculine pride. Often they scrap with rivals to defend their territories. Most of these birds feed on cereal grains and sizable areas are needed to feed the youngsters. Perhaps it is true that turtledoves coo through the nesting season to warn other turtledoves from trespassing on their properties. particularly if you're driving or traveling.
