Self-discipline and continued investment of energy are essential, not always easy. Relationships flow smoothly once you are past an early phase of testing and being tested Today's natives attract notice thru strong personal reactions, a flair for dramatizing even trivial routines These people are never a kind, however near in age they may' be. ARIES (March 21 April Adopt a natural course of action, with special regard for the feelings of others, and all goes well for a vigorous day of personal progress TAURUS (April 20 May Your excessive concern for home and possessions shouldn't be allowed to take you beyond the range of ready adjustment in family affairs. GEMINI (May 21 June It would be hard to find less provocative and yet so potentially rewarding circumstances, once you get over a morning mood of dissatisfaction CANCER (June 21 July A search for obscure information offers extra advantages, gets you out of line just far enough to complicate your schedule. LEO (July 23 Aug. Flash your brightest smile, and charm your way past an early disagreement. Self- assured, move fast now that you are riding a wave of opportunity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.

Work and play both extend longer than usual. It's up to you to stick within the limits of your budget and you may not quite make it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Concentration on the fine points brings results, but you must keep an eye out for the unexpected discrepancy which can be both crisis and opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 Dec. A late start pushes you past the clahes of opinion from relatives and others. Technical advice runs into details which help your understanding. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Added co-operation should not be taken lightly or assumed as permanent Get long-term benefits confirmed while circumstances are in your favor AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Getting your day off to a good clear beginning involves responding to irritation with calm and gently expressed resolve. Just don't be careless PISCES (Feb. 19 March Being able to handle those who inadvertently get in the way is its own reward It's a great day for repaying old obligations 1974, The Chicago Tribune TOP GUITARISTS VISIT Two of the world's top guitarists, Roy Buchanan and Rory Gallagher, are scheduled to play concerts in Toronto March 15 and March 8 respectively at the Victory Burlesque Theatre Goren on Bridge BIRD MIGRATION Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Russell Kasper, age 12, of Ottawa, Ontario, for his question: Why do birds migrate? What we know about migration has been learned since birdbanding became common early in this century. The task of tracing thousands of species on their seasonal, tours is enormous, and still far from finished. We now know that migration has several advantages and a few disadvantages. But at present, no one can pinpoint one single reason why the fantastic migration of birds is. absolutely necessary. The appearance and disappearance of the birds has baffled mankind for ages. And from time to time, naturalists have set forth some outlandish reasons to explain it. For example, the great Aristotle of ancient Greece thought that storks went into hiding and that, come spring, the robins in his neighborhood transformed themselves into redstarts. However, he allowed that pelicans fly south for the winter. In the 1700s, opinions were even more confused. One naturalist suggested that birds fly to the moon On arrival, after 60 days, they find no food and hibernate until time comes to fly home again Other experts of the 1700s thought that birds hibernate Martins were supposed to hide under roofs and swallows in the mud. This guesswork seems fantastic, but the truth itself, is amazing. Come fall, a third of the world's birds fly hundreds or thousands of miles to winter in milder climates Come spring, they fly all the way back to their ancestral nesting grounds Each species travels its favorite routes between its favorite winter and summer homes BY CHARLES H.

A -Four Partner's vul- We now know where most species migrate and also many of their fly-ways. We know that they time their flights and chart their routes from angles of sun's rays. We know that there are advantages and disadvantages to migration. But at present, no one can say that birds migrate for just one particular reason There may be several reasons or there maybe an all-important reason that nobody has suspected It seems logical that they depart to escape the winter. But birds are sturdy little creatures, well able to withstand the cold and wet. In fact, nearly half of our North American birds stay around through the winter. However, winter also brings food shortages, especially insect food Obviously the insect- eating birds have good reason to migrate to warmer climates where their favorite food is available all winter. But many seed eaters also migrate, ignoring our plentiful weed seeds. Another mystery is why some species migrate short hops, some cross the Equator and a few migrate between the north and south polar regions Still another mystery is why birds who migrate to friendly southern regions bother to come back in the spring Bird migration is an enormous project and every year countless little travelers perish in storms and fogs. Obviously some species need to migrate to find winter food. But for many species, the hazardous journeys seem hardly worthwhile. It is just possible that the main reason for migration is still a well- kept secret of the bird world by child- ran of Herald should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
