There is energy for Have both constructive and trivial LEO You have little privacy. The Surinam toad Andy sends a complete 20- voiumne set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Steven. Stricklin, age 11, of Pasa- dena, Texas, tor his question: How does the Surinam toad raise its young? Toads, of course, are amphi- bians who developed from eggs through a fishy tadpole stage to become air breathing adults. In several species, the male parent shelters the eggs and tadpoles in capsules attached to hit back. The developing youngsters of the Surinam toad are sheltered in pockets on the back of the female. This toad also has a built in lure to bait his food and looks like no other amphibian in the world. Surinam, also known as Dutch Guiana, is a small coun- try along the Atlantic shores of South America, just north ot the equator. This is the home of the Surinam toad, though he also lives in neighboring coun- tries. He spends most of his lifa spread flat on the botton of a pond or stream, looking as though a heavy foot has step- ped on him and left him there. To a close observer, he is ob- viously alive, but he appears to be lying upside down. Certainly when the female's back bulges with tadpole pockets she ap- pears to be relaxing with her tummy facing upward. When time comes to repro- duce, the skin on her back be- comes thick and spongy. As she lays her eggs, the mala helps her to place them on this comfortable mattress, pushing each one down into the soft Us- sue. The skin and the egg cap- sule form a lid to seal each egg Inside its personal pocket. There it stays beside 100 or more siblings, safely protected while the embryo develops through its fishy tadpole stage. After an incubation period of 214 months or more, the young- sters come forth looking like miniature copies of their par- ents. He would not win a beauty contest, but the Surinam toad has several unique and very ave mue ,wn program clearly in uses, so make some discerning choices. SAGITTAIllUS (Nov. 22-Dcc.

On land he is very clumsy and al- most helpless. You might mistake him for a cardboard cut out, hut you would never mistake him for any other toad or frog. His tiny eyes are on top of a head shap- ed like a wide pointed triangle. From his nose dangles a wormy flap of skin, which he dangles to entice curious fish within grabbing distance.

Public Works Minister Jean- Eudcs Cube told the Commons national resources committee here the 17.2 million square feet of space his department eases for other government de- partments will cost million in the fiscal year ending March The department also owns 45.2 milion square feet of office Mr. Dube said requirements for space by government de- buildings are planned in various locations throughout the coun- he said.

In fact, the Surinam toad is find it very difficult to anticipate these requirements and, because we frequently have to react without being given adequate time to provide for the space in the most economic manner, leasing is often the only short-term solution to the problem."
