Tod-ay's natives often willingly relinquish tilings most people cling to. Many of them, especially the men, tend to be somewhat taller than average. ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19): Keep your sense of humor amidst mi-planned minor events, possible irrational impulses from normally placid associates.

They are planted in the garden when the weather promises daytime temperatures of between 80 and 90 degrees, with no nightly dips below 60 degrees. A cool summer spell stunts the growth of the busy little shrubs and they produce puny fruit, or none at all. Eggplants- need deep, friable soil. It should be enriched with fine crumbly compost to permit drainage and topped with thick mulch to retain moisture. If all goes well, their fuzzy grey-green foliage spreads to form put on pretty purple blossoms. These are replaced by small green fruit which grow rather fast. As soon as they turn glossy purple, they are ready to eat. The handsome eggplant may win a vegetable beauty contest - but it is rather low in both calories and food value. However, when properly pampered, the pulp inside the gorgeous skin has a delicious flavor. * * * Do not despair of growing your own eggplants, even if you live where summers are short. Some gardeners grow them as far north as Vermont. They keep their seedlings indoors for an extra couple of weeks. When the plants are in the garden, they are covered up whenever the weather threatens to turn cool. Another handsome bushes, two or three feet high.

They claim that their midget strain produces medium-sized fruit on mini-sized bushes after only 65 days in the garden. Andy sends .$10. to Toby Thiersch, age 9, of West Vancouver, B.C., for his question: What does au ameba eat? The ameba is not a fussy eater and almost anything will do for his dinner. However, his food must be served in very small helpings. This is because he is a very small single-celled animal. He is too small for our eyes to see. His helpings of meat and vegetables must be even smaller. He uves in water or drops of moisture, so some of his food comes floating by and some is down below the mud. His favorite vegetables are tiny algae. Most of them are green, though some are bluish green and some ar reddish brown. He also devours other single-celled animals - that is if he can find any that are smaller than he is. Sometimes he dines on miniature bacteria. And he often helps himself to a speck of rotting meat or waterweed. These scraps float around when plants and animals decay in the water.
