Cooperation is both a necessity and a creative virtue. Attend career matters, then divert the The sea wasp Adny sends a complete 20. volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Dale Ptycia, age 13, of Lethbridge, Alberta, for liis question: What is a sea wasp? There is a sea lily and a sea cucumber, a seahorse and a sea cow and once there lived a sea scorpion. These creatures bear slight resem- blances to their land-dwelling namesakes, though naturally they are in no way related. Tiie sea wasp could never be mistaken for a yellowjacket or any olher insect at least on sight. However, he has a waspy sting. It is far worse than a sting from a bad-tempered yel- lowjacket. Sometimes it is fa- tal. The sea wasp belongs in the genus of cuboidal jellyfish, so named because his umbrella shaped like a cube. In certain tropical and semitropical seas, swimmers and fishermen take off when they see his boxy blob of clear jelly in the water. The tentacles that dangle from each corner bear deadly dangerous stingers. The sea wasp has voracious appetite and swims very fast to catch up with his fish dinners. He propels himself by jets o: water, created as he opens and shuts his four-cornered umbrel la. When the hungry hunter is in hot pursuit, he may squirl ISO jets a minute. The mosl deadly species is Chiropsalmus quadrigacus, found off northern Australia, around the Philip- pines and In the Indian Ocean Japanese fishermen call hi the fiery medusa and turn their boats when they see his box; blob of pulsing jelly. Swimmers sprint to safety, for this sea wasp's sting is said to be fata within three to eight minutes. Milder sea wasps are founc ,n the Atlantic, southward from .he Carolinas as far as and share the habits of their iiercer relatives. However, the mildest cuboidal jellyfish deliv crs an agonizing sting. Even when beached by stormy gales ihey can sting careless bare feet running over the sand. Naturally these mindless creatures do not sting people on purpose. The rows of poisonous glands in their trailing tenta cles are triggered to sting any thing they touch. The object i to paralyze or kill a sizeable fish that can he devoured with out a struggle. Numerous sen sors in the tentacles detec what may be edible food. the object is human skin, th stingers react This built-in mechanism cor tinues to operate long after cuboidal jellyfish is bcachc and presumed dead. Many other jellyfish are arm ed with stinging tentacles though these are the worst. W can be thankful that all the se wasps are smaller than thos jellyfish saucers eight fee wide, trailing tentacles dow 200 feet. The sides of most se wasps measure only about on or two inches, though one mea sured ten inches over his cub oidal roof. It is wise to poke beached jellyfish with a stick and beware the saucers and all other types when in the water. Questions asxefl fov cnlTchcn of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andj, P.O.

Growling stomach is embarrassing Dear Dr. Lamb G year old girl who has a mall but embarrasing prob- em. My stomach growls a lot ind makes funny noises. When am with a date at a movie and everything is quiet, it eems to growl twice as much and twice as loud. It embar- asses me to death and I don't mow whst to do. I have tried raiding my breath, tightening my stomach, taking deep ireaths and not drinking fluids jefore I go out. I've also tried gnoring it, but nothing seems 0 help. Could you please tell me what causes this and how I can prevent it? Please try to irint this before too long be- :ause I would like lo have a cure before my next date. This may not seem important to you jut it is very important to me. 1 have about decided to stop it bothers me That's not dating because so much. Dear Header TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan THUMP BTWWP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP an easy problem to solve. It is caused by the normal contrac- tions of the digestive tract. The entire long digestive tube is lined with muscles which con- tract to propel food in a norm- al fashion. The digestive tract is very susceptible to emotions and excitement. There are many things which wil! cause it to become "overactive." One of these is being hungry. It is literally true that a person's stomach growls when they are :mngry. You might try eating Defore you go out on a date, rather than avoiding fluids. No doubt it increases when you are on a date because you are a bit nervous. Perhaps alter you have dated a little longer or are better acquaint- ed with your date, this problem will not be quite so great. You might keep in mind that every- one has this in some degree and it is perfectly normal, so why be so embarrassed about it? II you are a good listener you might find your boy friend's stomach growls, too. Dear Dr. read the article about the woman with the problem of swollen lips. 1 had this same problem for a year and avoided many differ- ent kinds of food and still had trouble. I finally found out that it was caused by two different brands of lipstick I was using. Dear Header That's very thoughtful of you. It illustrates again the multitude of different things which can cause people to be allergic and have swell- ing of the face or lip which is called angioneuratic edema. This again points up why doc- tors have so much trouble find- ing out what causes an allergy. It can be anything from lip- slick or other cosmetics to things in the air, foods or even medicines. Another r e a d er found it was aspirin. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) BlONDIE-By Chic Young Age doesn't stop movie director By BOB THOMAS MADRID (AP) At 72 GOREN ON BRIDGE CRADLES 11.

George Cukor has been filming a new movie on the beaches, plains and mountains of Spain, directing with the vim and en- thusiasm of a hippie making his first feature. The film is MGM's Travels With My Aunt, and it is the lat- est in a long string of taste- filled, finely-wrought pictures, including Dinner at Eight, Cam- ille, David Copperfield, The Women, Philadelphia Story, Gaslight, A Double Life, several Hepburn-Tracy comedies, Born Yesterday and My Fair Lady.

In 1969 he completed Justine for the de- posed Joseph Strick.

The e x -p r e m i e r said of Churchill Falls lhat he is satis- fied he "got it started" and that only the formalities of the inau- guration now remain. The future of the big power project is brighter than ever, he added, since the inauguration of operations on the upper section of the undertaking June 6 will be followed by the subsequent launching of additional generat- ing resources on its lower ex- panses. Smallwood was interviewed after he had attended a memo- rial service here for the late Newfound land-born radio per- sonality Margot Davies.

FIRED ON MGM JOB "I also got fired from an MGM picture called Desire Me with Greer Garson and Robert Mitchum. When I arrived at the studio the next day, I was amused by observing who spoke to me and did not. I said to my- self: 'Now I know who will come to my funeral.' With his long period of inac- tion, some Hollywood observers had figured Cukor had retired. Net so. "I never considered that I had stopped making the director said. "I simply had worked on a number of projects that never turned out." The same almost happened to Travels With My Aunt. He had planned it to star Katharine Hepburn, whom he directed in her firsi film, A Bill of Divorce- ment, in 1933. As the film neared production, Miss Hep- burn dropped out. Maggie Smith was set to re- place Miss Hepburn almost inv mediately. The English actress had worked with the film's pro- ducer, Robert Fryer, on The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie which won her an Oscar two years ago.
