Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta tdlurdor, July "72 THC LETHMID6I MMAID YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DiXON SUNDAY, JULY M Your Birthday Today: This Is the year of maturing skills and personal powers fnr con- structive use of resources. You can sell just about any- thing. All forms of relation! promise vivid adventure, sud- den changes. Today's natives are ardent partisans of ideas, can generally take care of themselves In conflict or competition. ARIES (March 21 April njrlve bright and early for four share of community ob- lervances this week-end. Make the rounds to renew acquain- tance In your own bailiwick. TAURUS (April 20 May 20) Concentrating on home affairs and nearby matters of person- al Interest Is likely the best course to follow this quiet Sun- day. GEMINI (May 21- June Reach out for wider social con- tact, freshness In old friend- ships. Bring only a selected few long-tune associates Into any new situations. CANCER (June 21 July For once luck and coincidence seem to be with you. Make the most of a chance to get co- operation In abating a long- term, minor difficulty. LEO (July 23 Aug. Dis- tant people may be more im- portant in the long run than Amoeba Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Suzette Tracy, age 15, of Lansing, Michigan, for her question: How does in amoeba move? The single celled protozoa are miraculous midgets and one of the most amazing Is the amoeba. He has no front or rear end and no left or right Bide. He has no permanent feet or legs, no wings or fins. Yet he manages to move around and keep going most of the time. True, he does not move very fast. But he can set forth, change course and proceed In any direction. The locomotion of On tiny amoeba rates high among the outstanding wonders of nature. The microscope reveals that this shapelfiss blob of jelly is a single living cell. The cell Is governed by a small nucleus, at some point within the mass of watery protoplasm. The en- tire blob Is encased In a thin cell membrane, through which chemicals diffuse to and from the busy protoplasm. We could compare the am- oeba's shapeless cell to a pli- able polyethclene bag, partly filled with water. He makes good use of this pliable quality to mova from place to place. In fact, the hungry little hunter rarely, if ever, pauses In his pursuit of food. He travels by stretching a piece of himself in his chosen direction and the rest of his single cell flows along from behind. The outstretched finger is called a pseudopod, meaning "false foot" perhaps because It is not permanent. Other pseudopods are extended to help him on his way. When this or that job Is done, they merge back into his shapeless mass. The first step begins when a portion of the membrane stretches forth, which can hap- pen at any point around the cell. Jelly like protoplasm then flows Into the extended membrane. A single pseudopod may stretch to hold all the cell's protoplasm. But as a rule, the amoeba puts forth two or more fafce feet and as they fill with protoplasm the entire cell Is drawn toward a certain direc- tion. In mid stride, so to speak, the microscopic creature may take off on another track. Other pseudopods are extended to- ward a different direction. As they fill with protoplasm, the first ones shrink back and be- come part of the cell mass again. Since these false feet can be extended from any part of the cell wall, there Is no limit to the routes he can take. As he goes, usually only the tips of his false feet louch the ground and the rest of his cell body Is supported by the sur- rounding water. The amoeba could not travel without his pseudopods and most likely he could not eat either. For they serve also as nets to capture scraps of food and as mouths to engulf them. When he senses a snack, sev- eral pseudopods flow around and enclose it. The food Is en- folded within the cell When the nourishment Is digested, the waste scraps are pushed out through the cell membrane. Meantime, the pseudopods have engulfed several more small snacks.
