Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 16, 1971 Caring for canaries Andy sends a complete 20- volurae set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Monica Vak- ulsk'as, age 10, of Sioux City, Iowa, for her question: How can I rare for my pet canary? He may or may not be an opera singer, but in any case a canary bird is a treasure. He knows you and shows you his affection. His bright eyes watch you and when you chat with him he flutters with joy. He is happy when you are and when you are sad he cheers you up and plays amusing games to make you laugh. Chances are, sometimes he warbles a song to remind you that somewhere a crystal clear stream is bub- bling gaily through a ferny for- est.

He is happiest if you stuff these duties with friendly af- fection. A canary is a great one for friendly affection, slightly on the playful side. He also loves a little chatty con- versation. It is wise to buy a special canary bird cage at a pet store. It has a solid oblong floor about 15 inches long and nine inches wide. The walls and roof are made of smooth wires, set so that he can see out without get- ting out. The floor has a re- movable tray. Every other day you slide it out and clean up his litter. He loves to wash himself, so provide him with a canary-sized bathtub. Add fresh water and a small pan of special canary gravel. Like everybody else, he should be trained to a regular feeding schedule, ft is best to give him one meal a day, in the morning. At the same time throw out yesterday's drinking water, pol- ish up his dish and fill it with a fresh supply for today. A canary is by nature a seed eater, though he needs a small daily helping of salt. His best gasic groceries are seed mix- tures from the pet store. His salad may be a shred of cel- ery, broccoli or carrot stuffed between the wires of his cage. He also needs calcium for his bones and feathers. This prob- lem is solved by fixing a bit of cuttlebone on the side of his cage. He enjoys pecking at it so you have to replace it every month or so. For between-meal snacks, it is a good idea to hang a ball of seeds in ms cage. Your primrose pet also needs his exercise to keep fit. He loves to jog on a little ferris wheel or teeter-totter on a little see-saw. He is enchanted by bright objects, S3 just for fun you may hang a shiny ball in his cage. However, don't crowd in too many toys for him. He needs room to flutter abou' without bashrng into his furni- ture. At night you place a cover his cage and he soon falls asleep. Maybe he shares the living room where you spend the evening. If so, be sure to cover his cage when darkness falls outdoors.

He switched a club at trick two and the ace was played from dummy. South cashed the king of diamonds, followed by a diamond to the ace and then a third round which was ruffed with the deuce of spades, m both opponents followed suit. The ace of spades was played next fol- lowed by the four. If the roll divided as is the normal expectation South planned on going up with the king running the hearts. Even if the queen of spades did not drop, declarer figured he would lose at most three each in spades, hearts and diamonds. When East showed out on the second spade, South realized that West was as- sured of scoring two trump tricks. Declarer attempted to cash the king of hearts, but West ruffed in and played the queen of diamonds to com- plete the defensive book. The queen of spades subsequently sent South down to defeat. Declarer could have made his contract In one of two ways. After he ruffs the third diamond and plays the ace of spades, if he returns to his hand by ruffing a club, he can successfully trump his fourth diamond with the four of spades, because altho East Is out of diamonds he also has no more trumps. This gives South a tenth trick. Another successful line of play is to ruff out dummy's clubs. At trick three a club la trumped. Dummy Is en- tered with the king of dia- monds to ruff another club. Hie ace of diamonds is cashed followed by a diamond ruff. A fourth club Is led and trumped with the eight of spades. South now has seven tricks in. He can lead a fourth diamond and trump with the nco of spades. A heart Is ted to the king which West ruffs, but he must now lead away from his trump holding into South's king-jack to present the latter with .Btatb You can be certain that ab- sorbing tobacco through the lungs, by smoke or dipping snuff or by absorption from the mouth all result in taking nico- tine, which is a drug.
