Find lime for reflcclion, then v.hon >ou How snails Andy sends a complete 20- volumc set of the Merit Stu- dent Encyclopedia to Joann Kortering, age 9, of Hull, Iowa, for her question: How docs a snail move? Joann and her family enjoy watching the snails in their fish aquarium but how Ihe slip- pery little creatures get around is a mystery to one and all. Some of us arc puzzled by how a garden snail gets from here to Uiere. True, he only goes at a snail's pace, but since he has no legs, it h a small miracle that he gets anywhere at all. Actually he has a foot, one largo and very remarkable foot. It does the work of walking legs though at a much slower pace. There are hundreds of differ- ent snails in the world. Some belong to the land, some belong to the water. But every one of them has thjs most remarkable foot. When scientists chose a name for them, they called them gastropds a word that means "tummy-foot." This is because a snail's foot is also the underside of his tummy, reaching from his chin to the tip of his tail If acts somewhat like a ski or a surfboard, though It has extra special fittings to move for itself. Actually it glides, inched and pinched along by a multitude of clever little muscles that work as a team. Since the long flat foot must glide along, it needs a slippery surface on which to slide. This problem Is solved by a built-in kit near the front end of the foot. It has special glands that ooze a slimy mucus mat- erial. As the snail inches for- ward. he slithers smoothly over this slime leaving a silvery trail behind him. An aquarium snail oozes this goo when he makes his impossible journeys around the glass walls. The sole of the foot is banded from side to side with grooves and ridges. As the snail moves, he skids on the edges of his foot, inching along in miniature waves. This is controlled by 5el.s of muscles. More muscles work to move the body forward IT, sections. The groov stretch forward and backward to lift one section forward and support the weight behind it. In this small, clever way, the snail manages (o get where he's going on his gastropod tummy- foot- What's more the sole of his famous foot is so tough and views don't change much. Try- to lessen any differences. PISC'lvS (Feb. ID-March Altho you try lo make this a restful Sunday, you must think- about money, as Uiere is a chance of securing some ad- vantage. (1372: By The Chicago Tribune) MONDAY. MAY 23 Your birthday today: Get your resources together, use forgotten skills, convert belongings into some invest- ment. Conservative, orthodox mlehrxls work best in Ihe long run. Emotional tics de- serve special care. Today's natives mean well but are of- ten restless, critical, not al- ways easy to get along with.

Family plans Starting early gives you a lighter workday, a chance ot learn something interesting. GEMINI (May 21 June Regular work habits again Payroll sales under scrutiny TORONTO (CP) The chair-1 inces. Mr. Curry is chairman of j man ot one of Canada's major said leathery that he can crawl safe- ly over the edge of a sharp knife. True, he gels there but not very fast. At top speed a heal- thy snail can travel about Iwo inches in a minule. At this speed, traveling nun-slop day and night, it would take him 23 days to crawl a mile. However, old slow poke is never in a hurry. Time does nol bother him and he is not interested in traveling. As a rule, an ordin- ary garden snail never wanders more than a few yards from where be hatched from an egg, Fresh water snails do not tra- vel far from home either. Some can breathe under water and also come up once in a while for some air. But their sea-go- ing cousins have only gills to take oxygen from the water. Some of them have fancy frills and fins, used for swimming. These fellows hold the gastro- pod speed records. Andy sends S10 to Debbie Kruger, age 10, of Fremont, Nebraska, for her question: What is A canyhara? A rat as big as a pig would scare you silly. But the capy- bara would never scare you, though he is a pig-sized mem- ber of the rodent clan. Actually he is more like an overgrown bunny who looks very much like an extra large guinea pig. We find him in parts of Central America and in South America, east of the Andes. He prefers j to live near a stream so that he can dive into the water and swim to safety when threatened by his mortal enemy, the jag. uar. i The capybara has a large!
