AIRFARE TO AND FROM THE CHOSEN CITY VIA 'AIR CANADA' NEW YORK (AP) Tilings n columnist might never know if be didn't open his mail: There is a good reason why Hong Kong streets are cleaner than at any oBier time in history. You can now be fined up to for littering them. One problem in reaching world understanding is the multitude of tongues in which the world babbles. According to the National Georgrapbic Society, man now speaks languages and dialects, rang- ing from Abakan to Zyrien. Up to 800 attempts have been made to create an internation- al language. The best known, Esperanto, developed, by Dr. Ludwig L. Zamehof in 1887, now is spoken by some people. How much of the earth was an ice cube during the ice Age? The sheets of creeping ice cov- ered about a tenth of the earth's surface, or about 19.6 million square miles. But in a sense the earth is still in an ice age. Ice new covers about six million square miles of land. THEY STAY PUT Goldfish have been favorite household pets in China for more than years. One ad- vantage of goldfish over cats and dogs is that they stay in one place and don't leave scales all over the furniture. Nature notes: The ivory in 1 an elephant's tusk weighs from 155 to 100 hundred pounds. An {animal that spends most of its life sleeping is the golden-mantl- jed squirrel. It hibernates for a j full seven months and even I during the rest of the year it is i a late-morning riser. You don't j think of birds flying underwat- er, but you might say that Aus- tralia's masked garnet birds can. They dive down 40 feet or more into the water in search of prey. Cemeteries ar for the living, too. There is so little green space left between Boston and New York City, that many peo- ple are turning to cemeteries in the region for recreational activities. A survey by the U.S. Forest Service found the ceme- teries were being used for 29 purposes other than interment. They included h i s t o r ical tours, picnicking, open air classrooms, bird watching, ball playing and dog walking. Worth remembering: "Chil- dren are a real comfort in your old age and they make you reach it sooner, too." Home, Sweet Home: Why do bees rarely get lost? Be- cause the bees remaining in the hive flex their abdomens to release a scent and then fan it out from the hive with their wings. The honey-seeking bees are able to zoom in on the scent, and use it as a homing signal. It was Tacitus who observed, "It is human nature to bate the man whom you have hurt." Americans develop a million new skin cancers yearly. Doc- tors blame most of them on ex- cessive exposure to the weather and particularly sunburn in attempts to gain a fashionable tan.

THe rest, supposedly, is fat, gristle and hot air. fe the American wife feed- ing her husband properly? The chances are only SO-SO that she is. According to an American Medical Association study, only about half the housewives in the country "can come rea- sonably close" to describing a nutritionally balanced meal "Quotable notables; "Mar- riage always demands the greatest understanding of the art of insincerity possible between two human beings." 1st Vicki Baum. Exit lines; The dying of Sir Walter Scott, said to his family, were, "God bless you ail, I feel myself again." Gen. Phil Sheridan, Civil War hero, murmured, "I am absolutely undone." ATE A WHOLE OX Odd claims to fame: Jo- hann Ketzler of Munich, Ger- many, still holds the speed record for eating a whole roast- ed ox. It took him 42 days back in 1880. Worth remembering: "The reason many folks fail in life is because they are always at home when temptation calls but never there when oppor- tunity knocks at the door." Narrow but deadly: While hurricanes are usually many miles in diameter, tornadoes are usually no more than 260 yards.
