Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, March 6, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon SUNDAY, MARCH 7 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: A noi-mal year opens of industrious career efforts with reasonable results. You come to terms now with natural limitations. Today's natives are prudent with material values, eager students of humam nature, and often gifted with the gardeners' "green thumb."

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If you move promptly, you es cape tiresome chores and people. Somebody who owes you a favor is looking for a chance to repay. Simplify your habits. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can have the ideal situation by knovraig what you want and where you'd like to go. Close attention tells you something new and fascinating about mate, loved ones. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Public life amd personal affairs divide sharply today, or should. If you've been putting off a te-dius or laborious task, get it done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Enthusiasm brings co-operation; Saint John's bread Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Tom Knecht, age 12, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, for his question: What is Saint-John's bread? Saint-John's bread is a lovely tree that takes us back to the Bible story of John the Baptist. We are told that he lived in the deserts, depending for his food on locusts and wild honey. Of course honey is a delicious and nutritious item to add to anyone's menu and many wild honey bees live in the desert. But locusts are insects and nobody would fancy them on a menu. However, those particular Bible locusts were not insects. They were donated by that lovely tree. * * * The carob tree is a tall and handsome evergreen that seems to thrive on hardship. It lives in poor soils where water is scarce. Its coppery green foliage survives hot desert siui-shine and dry desert winds. For ages the hardy carob tree has grown wild on the bare slopes in many lands around the Mediterranean. In Bible days, it gi'ew in the desert regions of Palestine. Specimens were taken to our warm, dry southwestern regions. There they grow as handsome ornamental ti-ees in desert gardens and along the sides of many desert streets. Long ago, people started calling the carob a locust because it resembles the various locust trees that adorn our native forests. Both yield tough, dursWe wood and bear foliage, like clusters of large rose leaves. The carob and all the locusts welcome the spring with dainty sprigs of fragrant blossoms that turn to bean-type pods in the fall. But the carob is an evergreen and the lociists are not. Its blossoms ar.e deep red and locust blossoms range from creamy white to rusty pink. Locust beans come in fragile, greenish yellow pods. The carob bears a large thick pod of chocolate brown. It is said that its beans were used to estimate the carat unit for measuring precious gems. Long before Bible days, somebody sampled a chocolaty brown carob bsan - and discovered its chocolaty flavor. M"ch later, people who wandered the deserts of Palestine often foimd and ate pods from the carob, alias the locust tree. Words, as we know, tend to change their meanings and often get translated into other languages. Carob beans became known as locusts - the same desert locusts that John the Baptist ate with wild honey. The next Hnguistic adjustment is easy to understand. Saint John the Baptist found no bread in the desert so instead he ate locusts, alias pods of the carob tree. It seemed only fair to reward this friendly tree with a worthy name - and the carob was called Saint-John's bread. * *  The pods of the carob tree are still as delicious and nutritious as they were in Bible days. Many animals enjoy them and thrive on them. We import sacks of them from Mediterranean countries as fodder for our cattle. Also, we sensibly pound some of the pods into powder and serve it to ourselves. Carob powder with hot milk makes a tasty chocolatey drink and adds a chocolate flavor to cakes and cookies. It is less fatty and easier to digest than real chocolate. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Henry Miles, age 10, of Peoria, Illinois, for his question: Why did all the mammoths die? These giant animals were related to our jumbo-sized elephants. Some of them were bigger than elephants and had shaggy coats. They lived on earth for millions of years, along with other elephant cousins. But the last of the mammoths departed with the ice ages that came during the last million years. We know this because scientists have dated the rocks in which they left their huge fossilized bones and tusks. What's more, bodies of mammoths have been found in the Arctic, where they were frozen and preserved in ice age glaciers. We cannot explain why all t h e mammoths died out, but perhaps the changing world climate had something to do with it. Th.e saber-toothed tiger, giant sloths and bears and many other creatures also became extinct about the same time. The four ices of the past million years were separated by rather long warm periods. Perhaps the mammoths were wiped out by the cold or the warm spells or maybe they failed to adjust to the extreme changes in the climate.
