Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta IS-THE LITHMIDai HERALD novwimr r. Ask Andy SOME SOME DON'T Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Peter age of for his Do all reptiles lay All the crocodiles and their tmfolk lay soft shelled rep- tilian eggs. So do all the turtles and tortoises Some of the snakes and lizards lay eggs and some bear live young In some the eggs stay in the female rep- tile's body until they are ready to hatch In a few the developing embryos are par- tially nourished inside the female's body Frogs lay their eggs in the water beause these jellified blobs could not sur- vive in the dry air. The amphi- bian life cycle depends upon both water and land The rep- tiles graduated from the water some 300 million years ago when egg shells came into being Since that the majority of snakes and all crocodiles and turtles have left their soft shelled eggs to hatch in the warm ground reptile eggs drown in the water and many reptiles spend their lives in the sea or in fresh streams. Different species solved this serious family problem in different ways. Sea going turtles come ashore to conceal their eggs in warm sandy beaches So do some sea snakes. But about three quarters of the sea snake species retain the fertilized eggs in the female's body The young are born alive in the all ready to gasp for air Reptiles are cold blooded creatures who depend upon the seasonal warmth of the earth. In temperate they hibernate through the winter Strange to an adult snake can survive a period of being very cold Their eggs cannot. They need to spend weeks and sometimes months in very warm earth before hatching A common lizard of northern Europe solves this problem by keeping the eggs in her body until they are fully developed and ready to hatch So do several European vipers. Sea going cold country lizards and vipers solve their family problems by bearing live young many snakes and lizards that live in tropical and warm temperate zones also bear live young In our south western some kinds of horned toads give birth to about a dozen live others lay 30 or so eggs. reptile eggs left buried in the ground are at the mercy of hungry predators. Eggs retained inside the female's body are more protected and litters can be smaller This may explain why rattlers and many other warm climate snakes bear live young Most North American lizards lay little soft shelled reptilian eggs. One live bearing exception is the alligator lizard of the western another is the night lizard of Arizona Among our native the boas and venomous rattlers are live bearers So are most of our water snakes and many of our harmless snakes. asked by child- ran ol Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.

Several regional and national championships organized by the American Contract Bridge League are held at resort hotels. In Eu- even the capital cities are vying to attract the trav- eling bridge player. Two new international festivals were started this in Monte Carlo and one in Brussels. Today's hand was played during the second of these tournaments. British Michael was sitting South. After two he decided to open one no LTLAMEI trump even tho he held a good five-card heart suit and a weak doubleton in clubs. when West's pen- alty double was passed back to he removed to two for discretion is the better part of valor. West attacked by leading three high and Wolach made the first key play when he refused to ruff the third round. he dis- carded his low a trick he would have to lose in any case. this tactic had the effect of endplaying West. Since a diamond or a spade shift would almost certainly cost a West elected to exit with a trump. Declarer captured East's king with the ace and played a diamond. West could do no better than go up with the king and continue the but Wolach came up with another brilliant play. He overtook the queen of monds with the ace and ruffed his remaining dia- mond in dummy. Now he led a and when East played low declarer inserted the ten. South did not really care whether the finesse won or lost. If it West would be endplayed he would have to lead a spade into declarer's or give South a ruff and sluff. when the finesse declarer was happy to concede a spade to West's king. Wolacn's superb dummy play had insured making eight tricks.

LAMB I read with interest the many ar- including on marriage from both points of view Sometimes I am amaz- ed at other women's attitudes My husband is 23 years old and has accomplished much for He works long hours Saturday and in addition to going to evening taking care of our doing maintenance on our home and in addi- tion to anything else he has time for we have lit- tle time together in our young but we live happily I went into marriage with the concept it is not how much time you spend but what you do with your time that counts Mv husband does all of these things for He doesn't always care to be away from me on week and most of the times he but he is' working for our tuture together and for our children we shall have some day Does he help me with my chores at home' At one time he did whatever he could to help me with my TWO jobs I work full-time besides keep- ing up our home. now lie has his own work cut out for him. and when he returns home to me I greet him with dinner though most of the time dinner is pm. alter and don't ask anything of him that isn't necessary. I don't feel or undeserving of help He has been our breadwinner more so than I And. I don't feel it is my duty to cook or otherwise. I leel it is a pleasure to do these things for My husband sometimes is very tired and so he doesn't feel like talking or rolling in the hay He is not neglecting his duties to he has just idone other duties to an extent that he is exhausted. One must consider a too After in the majority of the cases a wife does not have to work. Her home should be kept with not as a chore etc. is part of a role I once shared with my husband At that time he was working normal hours. He only attended two evening classes. We have since chang- ed our status and he brings in a lot more money. He does this because he wants a good future for and our children of the future. We plan to have children when WE have all the items we want and are able to give the children as much as we without overdoing of course. Women complain of sexless etc. They should stop and think that their husbands are often under tension from work or other problems which remain un- known to them They should understand that a husband may also desire pleasures and cannot find the energy to do their chores or cater to their whims. I thank God I don't have to work the rest of my life and when my hubby com- es home exhausted 1 just remember. HE must bear the strain of feeding sup- porting me and loving all in one I realize many husbands are incon- but look past your nose and there may be a reason for it If you can find the reason you can find a solu- tion for adjustment. I am extremely happy with my life style as and when I have children and my husband cannot cater to my whims I will always remember he is doing plenty for me already. I have learned to enjoy my housework I enjoy working at an office as well I am on a lime a time schedule to suit my husband. When he is home I do not plan on housework or any other ac- if possible. The wife has the advantage in planning a work schedule most cases when she doesn't have to but the husband lives by a though it may change from day to day. Be happy to have a faithful and to come home to you with both love and support DEAR READER That is one of the nicest love letters I have read in a long time What a pleasure it is to hear from someone who is enjoying life and happy to be sharing and doing together. It is so much more meaningful than seeing just what you can get for yourself out of any situation. No doubt you will have some troubles in life. Few have smooth but love for someone and the concept of and go a long way toward making life's ex- periences a rather than a struggle.
