Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THC LETHBR1DQE HERALD-Saturday, Ftbruary Ask Andy SESAME SEEDS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia tc Mary Lynn Sheldon, age 12, of Utica, New York, for her question: What grows from sesame Sesame is the word that Ali Baba's wife had to remember to open the magic cave door. This .exciting old story, as you know, came to us from the warm sunny lands of the Middle East. In just such a place, sesame seeds produce crops of green growing herbs, two or three feet tall. At harvest time, the plants are crowded with spiky pods all crammed with slippery little sesame seeds. If you enjoy growing plants, you can coax a little sesame seed to show you just what it can do. The seeds you buy to sprinkle on buns will do, so long as you buy the untoasted, unroasted kind. Fill a flower pot with a mixture of sand and Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Feb. 16, 1974 The Canadian government gave Canadian Pacific Railways Co. million cash, 25 million acres of land and 700 miles of track worth millions of dollars 93 years ago today in 1881 as a gift to finance the trans-Canada railway. Sir John A. Macdonald had planned to subsidize the railway in 1872 but lost power when it was found that the company president had paid his party Lines were completed in 1885, five years ahead of schedule. 1959 Castro became premier of Cuba. 1949 Chaim Weizmann was elected Israel's first president. 1933 The British Parliament refused to allow the export of liquor to prohibition countries. 1871 The Franco-Prussian war ended. 1824 The Athenaeum Club in London was founded. MEAT STOLEN FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) A 40-foot trailer loaded with 28 tons of assorted meat was stolen from a service area along the Connecticut Turnpile this week. Police said the trailer was later recovered in New Haven but its cargo was gone. soil, plus a cupful of rich compost. Place half a dozen or so of your selected seeds on top and coyer them with about a quarter inch of soil. In Utica, New York, you will have to start this project either indoors on a sunny window sill or in some sort of greenhouse. In a few days, at least one and probably more of your sesame seeds will germinate. They put down roots and sprout little green, shoots above the soil. Continue to provide sunshine and enough water to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Growth is rather slow, but by the time spring comes to your neighborhood you should have a pot of handsome house plants. Each sesame plant has a tallish straight stem with large graceful green leaves. When the long hot days of summer arrive in northern New York, it is time to set your potted sesame outdoors. There it can get the direct sunlight it needs to produce its next year's crop of sesame seeds. Keep the pot moist and sunny and chances are the plants will surprise you with a burst of blossoms. The pink or yellow flowers are an inch long and remind you of foxgloves, tucked close to the square stems. If all goes well, the flowers will be replaced, by spiky little pods. Inside each pod there are four tight, neat rows of ripening sesame seeds: Cultivated crops of sesame need fields of fairly rich soil and a long growing season with from 90 to 120 days of hot sunny summer weather. They are grown outdoors in Hawaii and in southern farm areas of North America. The handsome plants are thinned to grow six inches apart. Some grow 18 inches tall, other strains are two or three feet tall. Your horoscope ByJefceDuon The slender seed pods are gathered in late fall and spread out in trays to finish drying. When the crisp pods are shaken, the slippery little sesame seeds fall out. Some are packaged to be sprinkled on cakes and buns. Cook books say that their delicate nutty flavor is improved when the seeds are toasted for a few minutes in a gently warm oven. Some sesame seeds are crushed to yield pale golden cooking oil. Some are mashed to make sesame butter a wonderful spread, especially when mixed with a drop or two of honey. OuMttom atkMl by cMM- of be malted to Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Boach, California f264l (Copyright Publishing Co. 1973) SUNDAY, FEB. 17 Your birthday today: This year's progress requires a willingness to contend against competition and adversity, with multiple fringe benefits from even the slightest creative effort. Early in the year, relationships are under stress, but later all are relaxed and renewed almost spontaneously. It's up to you to make the first move in every case, however. Today s natives are willing to take extreme risks, should be trained to abstain from involving others in their adventures. ARIES (March 21-April The challenge is to busy yourself sufficiently so that you aren't restless, while leaving your work and its shoptalk out for the day. TAURUS (April 20-May Fill your Sunday with social activity. Self-indulgence is the temptation of the day. Govern yourself strictly and stay healthy and happier. GEMINI (May 21-June Take your normal share in the Sunday customs. Much more is learned now by listening than by showing off, regardless of how rebellious, you feel. CANCER (Jane 21-July Last minute changes of arrangements are probable, with some people insisting on special interests despite previous promises or schedules. LEO (July 23-Aug. If you are strongly assertive, somebody near is apt to turn contrary. Find something to do that does not involve social pressures or overleadership. VIRGO (Ang. 23-Sept. Like as not you'll be earned off your contemplated line of action by distractions and demands of those around you. Relax and enjoy it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. If very little gets done today, it's all right. Your home benefits from the little chores you can do to keep yourself busy and away from dissension. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Social connections seem inconvenient but worthy of your initiative. You have items of information to pass along, correspondence to catch up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Pull out of the centre of public attention, seek the full attainment of serene home life. Practice economy where it counts. Goran on Bridge BY CHARLES H.

A Sunday for quiet formality. Remember that those unfamiliar with your habits may not follow your suggestions, are thus not to be relied upon.

MONDAY, FEB. 18 Your birthday today: The Sun moves from Aquarius to Pisces tonight at p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Both Aquarians and Pisceans born- today face a year of many surprises. Other people's resources prove more vital than anticipated, and your own strengths emerge firmly. The search for efficiency becomes more important than anything else now. Today's na'tives all have strong literary aptitudes. The Aquarians are practical, thoughtful; the Pisceans persuasive. ARIES (March 21-April There are moments for broad humor, plus the chance to pursue a romantic interest. Home life is fraught with complications. TAURUS (April 20-May Sharing work and fun includes odd moments in which no comment is quite adequate. Avoid any s'ort of overindulgence in later hours.
