Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wt-THI LtTHtAlDQI HIBALD-JT Ask Andy MAN VS. HORSE Andy tends a complete 20- rolume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Vayne age of for his ques- a rau oetru depends on vhich man is racing which torse. Most a good tinner could beat the old grey nare from here to there. Most ikely you could outdistance a tig-headed pony if the race vere headed away' from his lay. an average torse can outrun an average nan and a race horse of Secretariat's caliber would eave a champion Olympic behind in a cloud of lust. A champion race horse can about three times faster han a man. The fastest horses a mile in about one and me-third minutes and the astest human runners cover he same distance in slightly ess than four no doubt a cham- lion human runner could out- listance a weary old farm lorse. Throughout the world of survival depends on .peed or artful dodging or a of both. All the inimals on in the air and n the sea are hunters or lunted and many are n the bird the contests isually are in the where peed is more important than irtful dodging. Here the champions are hawks and other birds if prey that must be able to fly aster than their victims. The ladsome peregrine falcon ilummets down from on high o capture his prey at peeds that reach 100 miles hour. The mighty golden 'agle can reach 80 miles per lour which is plenty fast to capture the fastest vild who fly in the 60 to 0 mph range. In the survival often to the fastest ''he champ is most likely the landsome who can each almost 50 miles per lour. A big tuna fish can plow nto a school of herring at nore than 40 miles per hour 1 big ocean-going turtle is go- ng all out at 20 miles per which is almost as fast is a speeding blue balleen vhale In the a fairly human swimmer lawdles behind with the polar at about five miles per iour. On we tend to think hat the fastest animal on four eet is a champion race tot so. An ostrich can match us speed over a short dis- so can a fox or a bouncy lare. Most gazelles can out- un him and even the gauky ooking gnu can beat him by a lose The fastest four-footer eems to be the spotted who uses both stealth ind speed to catch one of hose frisky gazelles. With atty caution he creeps up as lose as possible then nakes his short dash to his linner at perhaps 70 miles per iour all the inimals that can outrun a horse can outdistance the fastest two-footed man. though not the man is not the slowest. When it comes to he can match for short distances the speed of a striding emu or a sassy roadrunner. He can outrun a sheep or a champion racing camel. But he cannot run quite at fast as a little house cat in a hurry. Andy sends a seven-volume set of the Chronicles of Narnia to Billy age of New for his How many languages are Would you guess a dozen or a Actually different languages are spoken by various peoples in the modern world.. This number does not include the dialects of the major languages. Perhaps this mul- titude of tongues explains why the peoples of the world have such a hard time trying to un- derstand each other. Many ex- perts claim that we would all be better off if the peoples of the world shared one common perhaps along with a mother tongue of their own. Some of those languages are spoken by only a few hundred or a few thou- sand people. Most of them are classed in major or that are traced back to common ancestor languages. English is in the Indo-European family which also includes Dutch and the several Scandinavian languages. This group is trac- ed back to early Sanskrit which may have originated in the Balkan region About half the people in the modern world speak languages in this Indo-European group.
