PISCES (FEB. 19 MARCH The fun side of life seems more important to you now. You will need rigorous disci- Food for plankton Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dent Encyclopedia to Kiraiey Dull, age 10, of High Point, North Carolina, for her ques- tion: Where docs Plankton get its food? First let's say that Kinney Dull does not ask dull ques- tions. A person who wonders about this one must be very thoughlul indeed. Of course, we all know that plankton is the basis of Uie world's largest food chain. Directly or indirect- ly it provides the groceries for all the creatures that dwell in the seas. And the seas cover almost three quarters o[ our watery world. But not many of us wonder where the plank- ton gets its food to start the fabulous food chain. The basic seasfood menu starts with simple chemicals and the ingredients are proces- sed with energy from the sun. These non living raw mater- ials provide all the food for all the living plants and animals in tna worldwide ocean. Ani- mals, of course, cannot convert them Into the useable food ele- ments they need. But plants can use the energy of sunlight to create the basic recipe, just as plants start the various food chains that support life on the land. In the seas, most of these plants are miscroscopic algae, to small for human eyes to see. They make up most of the rich plankton meadows that float just below the surface to a depth of 100 feet or more. Most of them are single-celled algae and each small miracle can carry on all the life proc- essess needed to create its food, grow and multiply. More than species of plant plankton are known, and the microscope reveals that all of them are wondrously beautiful. Each miraculous plant cell is tinted with ally with its own blended shade of greens of yellows, blues, or browns or reds. The chloro- I phyll, of course, is the magic material that uses sunlight to build nonliving chemicals into biochemical plant food. The raw materials are water, car- bon dioxide and various other chemicals dissolved in the ocean. All types absorb and use quantities of disolved nitrates and copper, zinc or even ar- senic. During the hours of sunlight, astronomical numbers of plank- ton plants carry on photosyn- thesis. Their chlorophyll uses sunlight lo synthesize absorbed chemicals into the basic sugary food that supports ail plants on land and in the sea. It feeds Hie tiny floating alga cells and they provide focd for uimer- ous small creatures that share the vast plankton meadows. These include many species of single-celled and slightly larg- er animals, eggs and larvae o! larger sea creatures, small shrimp type creatures and often swarms of krill two inches long. Herring sized fishes swim i In to feed on the shrimp-sized plankton dwellers, tuna-sized fishes arrive to feed on the herrings. Dolphins, sharks and hungry killer whales come to devour the medium and larger fishes. The great balleen whales sift and swallow tons of fine plankton food every day. It is estimated that ocean plankton provides 40 billion tons of sea food salad a year. Directly or indirectly this fan- tastic food chain feeds all life in the oceans and it starts with photosynthesis, the magic sunshine recipe.

(1972: By The Chicago Tribune) TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan Pelletier praise lost in derision By RICHARD JACKSON OTTAWA Only two day; after shafting, in Parliamenl and on national television, State Secreatry Pelletier for the all French Canada Day concert on Parliament Hill, Prime Minister Trudeau has paid him high trib- ute. "I do want to say he told tlie Commons here "that there is no minister in my cabinet who has done a better job with more skill I think particularly of the achievement of having set up a cultural and bilingual policy for Canada." The rest of the praise was lost in a roar of derision from both the Conservative and New Dem- ocratic opposition. They seemed equally as- tounded by the prime minister's two-day change-of-heart. For it had been only Tuesday that in rebuking Mr. Pelletier as the minister "responsible" for what the state secretary ad- mitted was the "mistake" of the all-French program, the prime minister himself had apologized GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Since the unilingual fiasco ol the Canada Day concert, Mr. Pelleticr has not been in the Commons. Was the secretary of state "sulking" because of the "pub- lic spanking" the prime minis- ter had given him, Maritime Conservative MP Pat Nowlan again asked Thursday. To that same question Wednesday Ihe prime minister had given Mm a short, sharp answer that while Mr. Pelletier would be shifted after the next Trudeau assuming pre-ordained would remain state secretary for the life of the current Parliament. But when the question came around for the second time, the prime minister piled on the praise, there was ro finer min- ise among Uie 30 than Mr. Pelletier. Well, pressed Mr. Nowlan, If the state secretary really was held in "such high why hadn't lie been on the job all week to answer questions about his Montreal policy state- ments concerning the CBC, the Film Board, Canada Council and other federal cultural agen- cies Answering his own question, Mr. Nowlan bawled "He's sulk- ing There were others who could answer for Mr. Pelletier, snapped the prime minister, in- cluding he himself and the stale secretary's parliamentary as- sistant.
