I'm a little lale with this letter, but I'm sure you'll remember the letter from the'Dakota goof who wrote about the opossum breeding through the nose. That is a lot of nonsense, Ami. It's not opossums. It's turkeys. I have raised turkeys for 20 years and am an authority on their habits. This is why the torn turkey has a snoot above his bill which extends while he struts. Strutting is Uie tom's mating Most huinaiis do not know this, but tea turkeys sure do. If they are interested in mating they join Uie torn in the dance and rub their nostrils against his snoot, similar to pollination of flowers. Some of your readers will refute this theory but they are ignorant and learn from books. 1 learn from turkeys. atrice, Nebraska DEAR EEA: Since 1 am not ultimately acquainted with turkey's, I must depend on books. According to World Book" Encyclopedia, turkeys mate like oilier birds and the snoot is not part of the act. DEAR ANN Recently I read a letter in your column from a girl who said she was very unhappy in her youth because her parents favored her sister. Ste always felt like the left out one. No matter tow hard sire 4ried to please her folks it was her sister who got tlic praise and the attention. My problem is similar and am the guilty party. It wasn't my parents it was my grandparents. I liked one set of grandparents better and I showed it every way I could. I showered my favorites with attention and I ignored the others. 1 feel awful about it now because the grandparents I ignored both passed nway within the last two years. I really miss them. Everylime i think of how terrible 1 acted toward them I want to cry. So please tell all the kids who read your column that they shouldn't play favorites. I realize now it can hurt adults as much as it can hurt kids. -Sorry Now DEAR SORRY: f'm glad you were big enough to admit you made a mislake. I'm printing your letter because I belive it has a good message far others. Confidential to Thirty Years ol Experience: Sorry, your life's story doesn't line up with your signature. It sounds as if you've had one year's experience thirty- times. Get some guidance and ttop repeating the same mistakes.___________ F1KAL DAYS OF BASTEDO'S BIG VALUE SALE!

A study of an early entrance >rogram in Saskatoon public ;chools suggests that selected children can benefit from early entrance. Children normally enter school it their sixth birthday oc- curs in Ihc year of admission, Under an early-entrance pro- gram started in 1966, five-year- olds with January or February birth dates were admitted on Lhe basis of mental ability, reading aptitude, social aiwi emotional maturity and physi- cal health. Researchers compared three categories of Grade 2 pupils [or the studv: early entrants regular entrants of 1967 and children rejected [or earls entrance in liXXi eiitera normally in The study showed no differ er.ces between groups in aca dcmic performance and soci; adjustment, said John McLex liead of Uie university's specia tducalion department. This in dicates the basis [or sckcUo and rejection of early entrant is sound, he said. UIFFEHENCES NOTED "Saskatoon wasn't trying pick out geniuses. It was simp trying to get those students who were ready for schools." However, the findings, as we as evaluating the basis f< selection and rejection, show other results. the schools we: grouped on a basis of socio-cei nomic areas, some significa differences were noted in t perionnances of clnldren w were rejected fur early en ance. "The evidence suggests th some rejected tram early enlr from both Uie higher and low socioecoaomic areas cm have bcncfitled from being school or from some form pre-scaool or kindergarten ex- perience." Tlie reasons were essentially differenl, but both groups would benefit from earlier entrance, lr. said. dren, but it also applies to chil- dren from upper economic groups."
