Pateros tennis duo fifth in state A dynamic tennis duo, Bonnie Sclduneger and Joan Curtis, narrowly missed a third place spot but brought home the fifth place medals for doubles at the State Ten- nis Match at Eastmont both May 29 and 30, after having met competition from only Class A schools during the tournament. The girls, both of whom will graduate this year have played as a team for two consecutive years. Nearly all their com- petitors belonged to private tennis clubs and had private coaching, thus the fifth place is even more meaningful. In addRion they represented one of the only two teams from North Central Washington that placed in the matches. They gave up third place when they lost a tie breaker in the third set, which put them four points behind the third place winners. Both girls felt satisfied that they done their best and were proud to have achieved a fifth place slot out of six- teen teams in the com- petition.

She had previously earned a second place slot at the District meet. 'llhe Pateros sophomore also competes in the long Jump event. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Darlington, Pateros.

Mansfield Women shutout Omak team Mansfield's womens soft- ball clobbered the Lawmen's of Omak last Wednesday 28-0. In their fir- st shutout, Mansfield had no errors and pitcher Sally Closser held the opponents to only 4 hits in the 5 inning game. Good defensive per- formance was turned in by Judy Bluemer and Marcia Isaksen. Bluemer also hit well slugging 3 doubles and batting a perfect 5 for 5. ,Ce00nyon Counfry Oufdoors Featherless fliers, they're not insects. Widespread, but seldom seen, their uncounted billions comprise the second largest mammalian population on earth. Because they're small, silent, nocturnal, and reclusive, very little is known of bats - though over 1200 species and subspecies have been identified. Bats come in many sizes. Of those indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, the little brown bat weighs around 5 grams (a six- th of an ounce), the big brown hat twice that. But weight is seldom used in scientific comparisons; instead, the hat's forearm is measured. The Old World bamboo bat is possibly the smallest living mammal. With a shirtsleeve of less than 23 am, this micro- midget weighs in at a feathery 1.5 grams - complete with brain, heart, liver, bones, muscles, fat, and digestive and reproductive organs. The largest know hat boasts a wingspan of one and a half meters, a weight of around 900 grams. Batmobllity A bat's wings are its most striking physical feature. A living, transparent membrane, each wing terminates in five moveable fingers. From there, the membrane angles to the rear of the animal's body, usually attaching to the sides but sometimes on the hack. An interfemoral membrane stretches between a bat's feet and, depending on species, may be bisected by a taft. This membrane is well-developed in the insectivorous and carni- vorons species, serving as a basket to hold prey while the flying bat gains better tooth purchase. Bats consume a variety of victuals, including fruit, insects, blood, even fish. Bats chew their food well and digest R quickly. Fruit-eaters may spit out the pulp and swallow only the juice. Bats can survive long periods without free water; some may never drink, getting all necessary moisture from their food. Navigation is the most studied part of hat behavior. Sight is of only secondary importance in directing a bat's flight.

Bill Lawless finished 57 with a finish time of 258.51. There were nearly 500 entrants in the marathon. Lawless stated this is "a i i I Prepare for Trouble Free Summer Driving first" for him, breaking three hours in such a marathon. He said he trained for three months, running 50 to 55 miles a week come rain or shine. Lawless and his poodle Biscuit are a familiar sight on these runs, although he said Biscuit is nine years old and only ac- companies him on the short runs now. l Cooling System Service Lube-Oil Filter Special _ offer good $1 RS June3 June 14 III imlu o-Ju,m  wlth this coupon Transmission Oil & Filter Change offer good M dlMM with this June 3-June 14  dm, g coupon J Bob's Triangle[0000l Quad City Herald Junl 11. 1981 pnge9 Sonar impulses are generated by the larymt and transmitted via the mouth or a peculiar structure called a nose leaf. Some of these pulsations are audible to man, but most are ultrasonic. Called echolocation, this sophisticated system not only guides the hat around obstacles, but locates its prey as well. Batty Behavior Most hats in temperate climates hibernate. Crevices in old buildings, caves, burrows, or cavities are preferred roosts. The guano hats of our southwest migrate about 2500 km (1500 miles) each fall to central Mexico. Bets summering in Canada have been known to travel south of Dixie for the win- ter. Bats mate in the fall, but implantation does not occur until the following spring. A single birth is the rule, but our native big brown hat often twins. Red and hoary hats can have up to four young per year. Though infant high, hats are extraordinarily long-lived. Mice and other small vertebrates rarely survive beyond two or three years, but some hats have lived to a ripe 24. Indead, the average life expectancy of most species is between 15 and 18 years! Tales of the dreaded vampire hat are a bit exaggerated, considering its 38-gram weight, extreme timidity, and the fact that all three such species live in the tropics. And a hat is ugly only to people who ignore its delicate precision, specialization of structure, and matchless maneuvering.
