Imagine a big white shaggy polar bear, slipping and sliding over Ihe ice. To IK, this might like a clownish perform- ante. But lo Hie giant bear it would not be funny at all. He is a hunsiy meat eater. So his very life depends on being able to hum on quiet footsteps that never slip or skid. We know, of course, that this problem must have a sensible answer. Because, if polar bears skidded around on the ice, there would be none of Uiem left in the world. They would perish from hunger because their clumsy footsteps warned the seals other food animals. Actually, the sensible answer to the problem is a two-in-one. When the first frost freezes the inland waters around To- ronto, the ice tends to be as smooUi as glass. It's too slip- for ordinary walking hoots, but just fine for skating. Later, the winter adds a few bumps and a frosting oi snow. It is easier to walk on this crusty ice. The polar bear hap- pens to live in the far north where most of the ice is very rough and bumpy. He is not likely to slip on this non-skid surface. But his paws do not ter. But nol the tough shaggy polar bear. In his Arctic home, the fall days grow shorter and at last the morning sun fails to rise above the horizon. The winter is a long dark night of cruel frosts and blustering blizzards. But Mr. P. Bear refuses to hi- bernate. The slender, nine-foot giant may go a bit hungry and perhaps lose a few of his 900 pounds. But he stays out and about all through the long, cold winter night. Mrs. Polar Bear Bear has a very good reason to avoid Ihe worst of the winter. In late fall, she curls up by a sheltering ledge or digs herself a bed in a snowbank. As the sun finally sets, the snow covers her over with a thick blanket. Around Christmas time, she gives birth to one or two. three or even four little white polar bear cubs. There in their cozy hide- awa, the mother and her cud- dly babies stay until the spring.

There in the chilly water, a hungry killer whale may be wailing to grab him. But the polar bear uses his might mus- other wild conditions on the high seas.
