Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta winy Ask Andy BEES' WAX Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tena Tavlor age ot Ringwood for her question Where do bees get wax to make their In the world of the honeybees the sunny season is the busy season Through the warm afternoons the birds may take siestas the breezes may forget to puff and even the whispering leaves are silent But the honeybees remain on the job gathering pollen and nectar from the flowers These basic groceries will be processed to make tood for the teeming hive and some will be made into waxv combs to store the During a summer s day a bee makes hundreds of trips to and from the hive Lach time she returns with the baskets on her back legs bulging with golden pollen She also returns with about one five-thousandths of an ounce of sweet nectar sucked from flower throats This will be processed to make honev Thousands of bees must make thousands of marketing trips to create one pound ot honev Some ot this honey will be processed to make the waxy white cells in which it is stored This job as usual is done the busv worker bee new honeycombs are needed she gorges and gorges herselt on honey until she is fit to burst Meantime miraculous chemicals in her change the gorged honey into material On the underside of her abdomen there are eight small pores arranged in two rows When the waxv substance is it oozes out from these pores in tiny The next problem to scrape the waxy flakes from her However various tools for the job are attached to her legs She uses the hard spikes thjt form the pollen baskets on tlattened sections of her back legs She also uses various spikv tools on her other legs At this point her object is to get the flakes off her abdomen and into her mouth Chewing is necessarv to make the stutt soil and moldable hen this is done chances are she gets help trom her sister workers She carries her new made wax to where it is needed which may be the building site for a new comb or the repairing of an old one There she spits out the chewed wax and gets ready to mold it in place Other workers are on hand to help to press and tamp it into the proper six-sides size and shape Together they model another cell on a new honeycomb or remodel the damaged one So the honeycomb is made from re-processed honey But there are times when the honeybee hive needs something stronger than the usual honeycomb wax This is in the late fall when preparations are underway to make the hive weatherproof for the winter This waxv metenal is called bee blue and the workers cannot make it from honey As usual they depend on the plant world to provide all the things they need In this the workers gather the various waxes and waxy resins that many plants create to protect themselves through the winter The workers carry these gummy materials home and use them as bee glue to seal up draft cracks in the winter hive Andv sends a seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Narnia to Paige Martin age 10 of Calgary Alberta Canada for his question When did life on earth begin0 Many living things of the past left fossils in ihe ground The big dinosaurs left their bulky bones Trees left petrified wood and imprints of their leaves Scientists can date these fossil records and trace the story of life back through the ages For example thev know that there were plenty of dinosaurs around 100 million years ago Thev also know that tiny algae lived in the seas more than a billion ago Most experts think that the first living things were so soft and so tiny that thev lett no lossils in the ground But they did cause changes in certain rocks This is the best early evidence we have to go on It suggests that small simple creatures may have lived on earth 600 million v ears ago Mavbe this is when life on earth reallv began Or mavbe we shall find proof that H began at an even earlier date At present nobodv can sav lor sure Goren on Bridge H

right one to- tac- kle fust The auction followed stan- dard lines Since his response of two clubs might have shut out a four-card heart suit in the South North cor- rectly introduced the major sun at his second turn rather than rebid his clubs South indicated a stopper in the unbid and decided that his six-card suit and outside entry should offer play for game West led a and de clarer had to decide where ic the trick and whicn minor suit to tackle It seemed templing to win the first trick with the king and go after but declarer stopped to count and saw since he would have to surrender a trick in the he would come to only eight two spades and one heart As soon as he gave up a club the de- fenders would knock out his remaining spade stopper and thev would have their suit established before he could set up a diamond for his ninth trick Therefore declarer won the first trick in dummy and led a diamond to the jack Had West won with the declarer would have had to bank on the suit dividing 3 3 However since East held the ace the jack won Note that East canno' win the ace of diamonds without setting up five tricks in the suit for declarer With an extra trick de- clarer could now be satisfied with five club tricks so he switched horses He led a low club and ducked it in dummy East won the seven of clubs and returnf H a forcing out the king A club was led to the king and when both opponents declarer was home The ace of clubs picked up the remaining card in that allowing declarer to in five club two spades and a trick in each red suit Your horoscope By Jeme Oixon MAY 24
