Saturday, September 8, 1973 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 2S YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SUNDAY, SEPT. 9 YOIT birthday today: Get- ging off from a stalled phase or a setback seems to be the achievement of the year. All things are up for renegotia- tion this year at some time or other; you may as well be flexible and prepared to deal openly. Relationships run rich and strong wherev- er you've chosen well. To- day's natives often show tal- ents as writers, actors, tell- ers of tall tales to fit the news of the day. Ask Andy Earthworm family Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to David Farnowski, age 12, of Duluth, Minn., for his question: How do worms multiply? Many teen-age business per- sons are raising earthworms to help replenish our depleted and polluted farmlands. When raising rabbits, it is necessary to start with at least cne male and female pair. But to start a thriving colony of worms this problem does not arise. In the right living conditions, any two earthworms start multiplying because each is both male and female, a potential mother and father. Though a newly hatched worm never knows his parents, be has both a mother and a father. This complicated family relationship is possible because the earthworm has workable 'male and female sex organs. This means that any two of them can multiply and produce a couple of though very closely related families. A couple of worms tend to pair off when the weather is moist and warmish. Then each crawls off to live his-her soli- tary life in an underground bur- row. Later, each parent lays a batch of eggs. The mother of one batch is the father of the eggs laid by the other parent. Each parent has a swollen garter around the body. It is near the head end in a segment called the saddle Each parent lays a batch of tiny round eggs into a case of soft skin in the saddle region of his-her part- ner. As the eggs develop, the egg cases leave the saddle and move forward along the wormy bodies of their parents. After about two weeks, the egg cases slip over their par- ents' heads. They snap shut, holding their batches of eggs in little brown bags about the size of wheat grams. The parents y uj attention to this event. Bath crawl away to continue Jieir solitary lives, hiding in burrows and searching for mol- dy vegetation. Their precious egg sacs are left behind on the moist warm ground. After another two weeks or so, the little eggs are ready to hatch. The hungy youngsters are miniature copies of their parents, and too small to no- tice. It takes a row of six of them to measure an inch. The little creatures crawl off in dif- ferent directions, searching al- ways searching for banquets of decaying vegetation. For several weeks, life is very hazardous and most of the wormlets are devoured by birds, insects and other foes. But as the survivors grow big- ger, they soon set about digging typical earthworm burrows for themselves. When they can go below to escape their hungry foes and the drying effects of daylight, life becomes less haz- ardous. Earthworms reproduce sev- eral times during the spring and summer seasons. If all goes well, a youngster is fully grown in about two years. He- she is ready to repeat the re- markable process of earthworm reproduction. Usually an earth- worm stays pretty close to home territory. No doubt the members of the complicated families sometimes meet and mate. But none of them ever know or care about who is re- lated to whom. Questions asted by children of Herald readers should be maUed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765. HnntiBgton Beach, California 92648.

[Look JOT answers ARIES (March 21-April Let this be a casual, pleasant Sunday of as nearly uneventful quality as can be managed. Ex- press yourself by quiet action rather than an excess of words. TAURUS (April 20-May Follow the community weekend customs, leaving commercial activities out of the picture. The image you build by just be- ing your natural self is helpful when you do resume business.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Whatever your neighbor- hood, its faults and shortcom- ings are apt to come to your attention.

MONDAY, SEPT. 10 Your birthday today: This year adversity appears in your world in forms rang- ing from real, perhaps eco- nomic, to symbolic abstract terms. Your spiritual devel- opment is more important than material details. By midyear you will hit your stride; benefiting from an education outside formal schooling. Relationships form to fit your needs. Today's natives have the knack for effective conversation, story- telling, salesmanship. ARIES (March 21-Apdl This morning's tranquility is deceptive, requires double- checking of facts and figures to avoid expensive misunderstand- ings. Evening brings a better outlook. TAURUS (April 20 May Preliminary stages of transac- tions are favored. However, nothing should be brought to a final close just now. Later" hours ought to bring to light the reasons.
