Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 15, Ask Andy FROG'S LIFE Andy sends a complete 20- vplume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tammy Benedict, age 13, of Pwellton. West Virginia, for her question: What is the life span of a frog? Some different frogs are at home in various wet, green shady regions around the world. And each species has his own life style, with a reasonable time in which to grow up and grow old. Some can expect to hve five, ten or even 15 years. But the frog populations provide food for numerous hungry meat eaters and in the wilds, few of them live long enough to reach old age Most likely the oldest frogs are those that are protected in captivity We know that captive bullfrogs can live as long as 15 years Ordinary green frogs often live 12 years m captivity Some of the smaller species are old timers at the age of three or four But none of these species would live as long in the wilds. The frogs, of course, are cold-blooded creatures who depend for warmth upon their surroundings. Living cells need warmth to carry on their chemical activities and when the temperature drops they slow down. Hence, the frogs must hibernate during the winter season. This is a risky period in the life of any frog Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS June 15, A Vickers Vimy twin- engined aircraft landed in a peat bog at Clifden, Ireland, 55 years ago today in 1919 as John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown, two British airmen, completed the first non-stop trans-oceanic flight They took off from Newfoundland the previous day. a month after Harry Hawker's single-engine plane had crashed halfway across the Atlantic, fortunately within sight of a Dutch ship. Alcock and Brown were knighted by King George V for their feat and a monument at St John's. Nfld.. marks the spot from which they embarked. e 1215 King John agreed to the Magna Carta which forbade imprisonment without trial. 1752 Benjamin Franklin conducted his kite experiment in an electrical storm. 1898 A tidal wave killed persons in Japan. 1944 The CCF won the provincial election in Saskatchewan, opening 20 years of socialist government in the province. and many do not survive their first winter. Life is fraught with hazards from the very beginning, when the next generation begins as a batch of jellified eggs. Species that mate early often leave the eggs in deeper water, where late frosts are less likely to freeze them. Even so, countless frog eggs are devoured by fishes, turtles and hosts of other gourmets. The pretty little black tadpoles also live risky lives in the water However, in a few species the male or female parent carries the eggs in pockets in their skin. The protected youngsters' do not leave home until the tadpoles mature to the stage of mini-adults and so have a better chance of surviving, at least through the early stages. The common leopard frog, alias the meadow frog, lays a great mass of eggs in the water, usually in April The tadpoles take to three months to become miniature adults, depending on the weather. Come fall the young frogs go into hibernation. They continue to grow during the following summer but are not fully mature until the age of two or three In certain green frog species, the tadpole stage lasts more than a year During the first winter they hibernate in the mud at the bottom of their streams and ponds When spring comes they soon transform their fishy gills for air-breathing lungs, lose their tadpole tails and take on froggy colors By the third spring, they are mature enough to mate The big bullfrog is m no hurry to grow up He remains in the tadpole stage through two years and sometimes through three or four. He may grow to be five, six or even eight inches long But at last he matures Barring accidents, the bullfrog has a life expectancy of 15 years counting the time he spent as a tadpole.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) GRAIN OUTPUT CLIMBS HONG KONG (Reuter) China's grain output last year was the highest in history, reaching 250 million tons, says the Communist New Evening Post. The paper, quoting an official of the Canton trade fair, says the figure was more than double the 110 million tons China produced in the early period of Communist rule that began in 1949.
