Dixon SUNDAY, SEPT. 19 Your bi rlli day today: This is time ol specific new beginnings, some ol them limited, intended to be tem- porary but apt to drift into permanency. Today's natives include both masters of lit- erary expression and crit- ics and editors, people who enjoy a lively tale.

GEMINI (May 21 June Allow for y o n r own tem- perament as well as that of others in all your dealtags. Sense of smell Andy sends a complete 20- v-olume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Louise Gal- lie, age 13, of Calgary, Alber- ta, for her question: Do moths have a sense ol smell? So far as we know, all insects can smell. However, they eith- er ignore or cannot detect Ihe multitude of odors that do not concern them. The senses of insects are fantastic, though na> turally each of thc million or so species has his or her pref- erences. In most cases, the var- ious sense organs are located m teams of tiny pegs on the an- tennas. These sensitive feelers detect taste and smell, temp- erature and humidity, sounds and touch ph-'s a variety of chemicals of personal interest to each species. Moths are velvety fliers o! the night and they depend on their feathery antennas to guide them by various odors. Tire females use their sense of smell lo select suitable plants and other objects to lay their eggs. The grubs will hatch in a pantry of food, just because Mama was able to sniff out just the right formula for them. Her sense of smell is extremely acute, at least in matters that concern her family and herself. The life cycle on which the preservation of a species de- pends begins, of course, with the mating of the parents. And in this department, nature as usual takes no chances. She makes very certain that Mr. Moth is able to find his lady love when the courting season comes around. She gives off a special brand of perfume, just for him. And the sensitive or- gans of smell in his feathery antenna can detect it from afar, even among a multitude of other stronger odors. A couple of generations ago, scientists found this talent in the silkworm moth and isolated the female's special courting perfume. To human noses, it has a slight, rather pleasant scent of leather. Apparently she is unaware of it hut a mere whiff of it calls the male from afar. He may be seven long miles away across a city dump reeking with all sorts of powerful odors. But if there is a Liny trace of her perfume in the air, his sensitive antennas delect it. Then he flies upwind, using his two antennas to direct him on course. A zillion strong odors along the way fail to dis- tract him from his rendezvous. The perfume of the gypsy moth has been isolated and chemically synthesized. Ecnlo- gists hope that devices of this sort may be used to control this moth and other destructive in- sects, fn this case, the males were fooled by the synthetic perfume and clustered around it.

It is there because a lot of rains and melted snows sink down into the ground. Be- Inw the surface, layers of hard and soft minerals form thick rocky sandwiches, often crack- 1 lo tne ed and tilted with jumbled fragments. Soggy rains seep down the cracks, settle in the pockets of porous rocks and rest on top of dense, solid Xabs. All these buried are called ground water. The top of the ground water is called the water table. And a lot depends upon it. If it hap- pens lo be very far below the surface, the trees cannot dip down their roots and tap its moisture.
