Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta It - THI MMMIDOI HMAID - Saturday, January 9, 1971 SUNDAY. JAN. 10 Your birthday today: Aside from emotional stresses, this coming year is one of healthy, normal growth, in which you achieve a better combination of material prosperity, social activity, self - improvement. Conventional approaches work out better than eccentric theories. Today's natives are noted for intense determination. The depth of their wisdom is the determining factor in how well they succeed. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon Anything that starts new to-1 port. Be conventional, share in day is unlikely to last long. | the community's expression of Each of your friends is on his own erratic course. Share favorite pastimes with those willing, the more the merrier. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The morning begins with a surprise. People change their minds, or don't know for sure what they want. Patience with distractions shows your maturity. GEMINI (May 21  June 20): What you do this Sunday is noticed by all around, and there are some hoping for your sup- Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Eddy Jorczyk, age 11, of Milford, Connecticut, for his question: How can they tell dinosaurs were plant eaters? Dinosaur fossils were found long before the discovery of radioactive dating. They were unearthed in fragments - an immense tooth, a giant thigh bone, a partial skeleton twisted out of shape by the pressure of massive rocks- For a long tone nobody knew what a complete dinosaur looked like, or that they came in a vast as sortment of shapes and sizes Most people estimated the age of the e a r t h to be but a few thousand years. Certainly nobody imagined that the owners of these strange fossils had populated the world through 160 million years- ing array of their descendants dominated life on earth- Carnivorous dinosaurs with dagger-sharp teeth thrived in the seas. Monstrous plant-eaters lived in the swamplands, chewing tender waterweeds. On the dry land, a ferocious assortment of toothy meat-eaters preyed on populations of plant-eaters. The sekletons reveal that the carnivores were swift runners, equipped with taloned claws and rows of sharp pointed teeth. The slow - moving herbivores defended themselves with massive bulk and outlandish armor - and most likely reserved their flat-topped teeth for chewing. The story of the dinosaurs were pieced together just a few generations ago. The first the orists were sure that these outlandish fossils belonged to creatures wiped out by Noah's flood. As more evidence was unearthed, one theory followed another. There were headlines, heated disputes and frantic scrambles to gain possession of every newly-discovered fossil. Nowadays, the discovery of a previously unknown dinosaur tooth is somewhat tame. A modem paleontologist can tell almost at a glance whether the previous owner fed on plants or meat. Chances are, he can esti mate the size of the dinasaur and form a fairly accurate picture of his shape. He can guess whether such an animal lived in a swamp or on the dry land Finally he uses a modern technique of radioactive dating to pinpoint just when his newly-discovered dinosaur species lived. To a paleontologist, the teeth of extinct animals possibly yield more information than any other type of fossil. After all, food is a vital item and sizable animals need built-in tools to eat it. The carnivores (meat - eaters) require toothy blades or sabre-sharp beaks to tear their food into swallow-able bites. The herbivores (plant-eaters) have teeth with wide or domed crowns for chewing and chomping. The strength and quality of t h e s teeth also tell whether their owners dined on tender foliage or tough vegetation- The fossilized record of life on earth suggests that the ancestors of the dinosaurs were carnivores. Most likely they dined on amphibians, fishy food found in shallow waters and few land insects. Thhese prim tive reptiles branched out and during the Jurassic Period of 180 million years ago an amaz The dinosaurs departed some 60 million years ago - but the pattern of meat and plant-eaters still prevails. Our agile cats and dogs have dagger-like teeth for tearing their meaty food. The rabbits and elephants have chewers and chompers to cope with vegetation. However, our bears and a number of other modern animals have both tearing and chewing teeth They done on a mixed diet of meat and vegetables, as we do Andy sends a World Book Globe to Maureen Kenney, age 11, of Youngstown, Ohio, for her question: How many oceans are there? The number of oceans depends on how we partition them. We can count the vast Pacific as one or divide it at the equator into the North Pacific and the South Pacific. We can count the Atlantic as one or use the equator to divide it into the North Alantic and the South Atlantic. The Indian Ocean counts as one and so does the Arctic Ocean that covers the North Pole- The Indian, Atlantic and P a c i f i oceans reach down to the south polar region, where they swirl around the land mass of Antarctica. These mingling waters may be called the Antarctic Ocean. This gives us a total of seven oceans and each ocean has quota of smaller seas- However, there are no natural dividing lines between them. Actually, all these oceans are linked together and their waters mix and mingle around the entire globe. So in reality, the earth has only one world-wide ocean. This explains why DDT from our rivers is found in the tissues of Antarctic penguins. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
