Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-07,Lethbridge, Alberta • -THE tETHMIDQI HEMLD - Monday. Jmuwy 7. 1>74 ROBIN MIGRATION Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Matfc Mell, age 11, of Omaha, Nebraska, for his question: Do robins migrate singly, In pain or in flocki? The robins migrate in flocks, stowing at sundown to rest through the night. As a matter of fact, they prefer to live in loose flocks through most of the year. They pair off in separate family units only during the nesting season. At this time, they become tame enough to live near us. This robin behavior is quite mysterious. Most wild, creatures are more timid of the people when they have youngsters to tend. « « * The red-breasted robm was selected as the state bird of Michigan, Wisconsin and Connecticut, which gives some idea of bow much we all love him. It’s nice to watch him stand straight as a soldier, then suddenly dart off on the jerky, busybody duties At dawn and sunset, he sings his throaty song. Dunng Jigs the day, he also "tup-tup-tups” and utters high-pitcned screams to drive rival robins from his home territory. This IS how he behaves during the nesting season, when his tune is fully devoted to tending his family. Sometimes he helps to build the nest and now and then he may sit on the four blue-green eggs, while the female takes an airing for herself. Later he takes over the task of teaching the children to fly. If this is the first brood of the season, the female may spend this period in refurbishing the old nest or building a new one for the second brood of the year. The robins, as we know, build their nests in our gardens and maybe even on window sills. They seem to be bold, partly tame birds with little fear of people. However, for some mysterious reason all this changes ui early fall, when the last brood of youngsters has grown up and left home. Then the robins of the neighborhood usually desert human habitations. They fly off to some wild, woodsy region where they live together in loose flocks, tf you walk through their woods, they bear you coming and ** The**fa^l mustlSi an exciting time, for most of them are planning for the migration flight southward. The loose flocks take off from their wild woods in Canada, Alaska and across most of the United States. They fly only from dawn to sunset When they find a place where there are plenty of berries, the flocks may stay for a few days of feasting Migrating robins may spend the winter in the warm southern renons of the United States, in M^ico or in Central America The same groups stay together and at the first sign of returning spring they fly back together to their former nesting places. Some experts suspect that the robui is by nature a flocking bird of the wild woods. The flocks stay together in loosely knit groups during the late fall, the migration trips and through the winter. The same pairs stay together during the nesting seasons and sometimes they select the same mates the next season. A robin lives either with the flock or with his small family — and no part of bis or her life is spent as a single.

I went to five doctors and all they say is to cut down. My problem is this. I can't take diet pills at all, and I’m scared to anyway. I have tried Dr. Atkin’s diet faithfully and it resulted in weakness. I tried Dr. Stillman’s and it resulted in my being hun^ for certain foods. I know I do not need a large amount of food or even want it My body seems to crave any foods, nothing in particular, just food. 1 gam weight real fast. I would appreciate any advice. Dear Reader — You need to learn something about nutrition. Those fad diets are not going to help you and may make you sick. Fatigue is a frequent complaint when people cut down on their calories too much.    » As a general guideline, I would suggest that you cut out sweets such as syrups, sugar and foods that contain them You can continue to eat leafy vegetables, carrots, radishes, tomatoes and fresh fruit in reasonable amounts. Limit your bread to four slices a day. Eliminate all excess fat, including butter and margarine Use lean meat, lean poultiy, such as the white meat or the breast without the skin, lean fish such as flounder, codfish and sole. Use fortified skim milk (about a quart a day) or uncreamed cottage cheese. Do not use fat in cooking. You should be careful not to cut down your calories to the point that you are fatigued. That can be harmful. A lot of fad diets can work because the person eats fewer calones This applies to the low carbohydrate diets including the Atkins’ diet. People don’t realize that a pound of separable lean of round steak only contains €00 calories. That is why it is good for a diet, but the end result is eating a lot of food without getting too many calories. Some of these diets upset the body chemistry so much that the person completely loses his appetite Despite public claims to the contrary by some of the diet gurus, your weight gain or loss depends solely on how many calories your body uses and how many calories you eat, unless you are sick An untreated diabetic, for example, may lose a lot of sugar caloiies in the urine To a sensible diet program I would suggest you add a daily pHn with figures By J.

Build into your life style at least a mile and a half walk each day. Two or even three miles would be better. And, add to your program some strength-type exercises, such as the calisthenics. This does mean knee bends, push-ups, sit-ups, and the like. Then, don’t expect miracles to happen. It should take several months to lose very much weight. It comes off about as slowly as it goes on. Above all, don’t ov^o it so much you feel tired or ill. We all need food to feel our best. When we feel well, it is easier to be active and that helps build a healthy program to stay slim as opposed to the starved and skinny or feast and fat cycle so many people go through.
