The desert air cannot steal moisture through its thick, waxy skins. Hence, the cactuses can soak up every unexpected drop of moisture and prevent it from evaporat- ing. These desert misers also have another feature to help them to survive from shower to shower. Their thick fleshy tissues are riddled with pores that act as inside storage compartments.

(Copyright Chi-onlrle Publishing Co. 1972) Sperm banks plan NEW YORK (CP) United r p States researchers say frozen storage of human sperm, in some cases for up to 10 years, may prove a useful "insurance" system for world population control through vascctomy. Dr. .1. K. Sherman, professor of anatomy at the University of Arkansas, says his research, in- volving 104 of the 400 recorded U.S. cases of live births using cnme from Dr. S. J. Behrman, professor of obste- trics and gynecology at the Uni- versity of Michigan, who urged wider use of semen banks. At least four U.S. cities now have them and 20 more are consider- ing establishment in the future.
