This uncharacteristic behavior in a nation known for its traditional love of dogs stems from fear that an international rabies epidemic is about to invade the British Isles. The disease, fatal to humans and animals alike, has been kept in check in the United States and Britian0 but is increasing in much of the world, the National Geographic Society reports. Bitten by Cow Mention of rabies conjures up visions of a slavering, snaring, twitching "mad dog." Throughout history, dogs have been the most obvious agents in transmitting the disease because of their close association with humans. Earlier this year, Tanzania disclosed that 25 people had died in four months after being bitten by rabid dogs. But wherever animal quarantine laws are enforced, control of dog m "re|atively easy. The problem is that any warm-blooded mammal can become infected and transmit rabies. A veterinarian in California was bitten by a rabid cow a few years ago, and had to take a painful series of 21 anti-rabies shots. Though pets and other domesti- cated animals can be inoculated, the disease may till be spread by wild animals. The epidemic that has alarmed Britain began in Poland in 1939 and has slowly marched across Europe. By 1950, it was in Germany. The World Health Organization says it has been advancing through France on a 700-mile-wide front at a rate of about 25 miles a year, spread mainly by Insect pests fear praying mantis Few creatures are as popular with gardeners and farmers as that insect Jack the Ripper known as the praying mantis. Harmless to humans, young mantises become deadly predators that dine on aphids and leaf hoppers. As adults they polish off pests like flies, boll weevils, grasshoppers, locusts, crickets, wasps, and even beeries. Not even relatives escape. The female' often devours the male after mating. Sold Commercially Its deadly reputation has brought new popularity to the praying mantis. A number of cvmpanies do a brisk business selling the insect's eggs to gardeners as nature's answer to pesticides. The creature got its name from the prayerful posture it assumes while awaiting or stalking victims. "Preying" better describes its habits, the National Geographic Society says. Powerful long forelegs armed with cruel spines seize victims in a llghtning-swift grab. The legs fold like the blades of a jackknife to allow a leisurely, comfortable meal. An after dinner cleaning ritual may take as long as 15 minutes. Mantises do a thorough job, cleaning each leg in turn with the mouth, polishing the face with forelegs, even running the antennae through the jaws. Then they're ready for the next feast. Long antennae probably serve as smell and hearing aids.The insect sees through two bulging compound eyes with several hundred tiny facets, each receiving light from a small fraction of the field of vision. Mantises have no voice and lack real ears. Their long bodies, ambling gait, and bony "armor" suggest a prehistoric reptile in miniature. Stagger When Hunting Related to grasshoppers, mantises are true insects, having six legs. Unlike their muscular forelegs, the walking limbs are long and slender, and propel the insects in a slow ungainly fashion on hunting trips. The mantis often is content to wait patiently in a strategic spot for its prey. In either case, the vicious forelegs are raised and ready to strike. Other insects often accept the mantis as one of them, until it's too late to escape. The l00vorite by Chris Mott Oatmeal Cake: A Notable In the made- from- scratch category, oatmeal cake wins the popularity contest for "take-along" favorite. It's a crowd-pleaser whenever it goes to a picnic, potluck, or party. This updated recipe for oat- meal cake includes the natural flavors of whole grains, com- plemented by the natural ..sweetencr, unsulphured mvlasses. OATMEAL CAKE 1/2 cup butter or margarine I cup rolled oats 1 cup boiling water 1 cup granulated sugar 2/3 cup unsulphured molasses 2 eggs 1 tap. vanilla ] cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1 tsp. baking soda Itsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 2 tsp. cinnamon Pour boiling water over oats, and butter or margarine in a large bowl; cool to lukewarm. Combine sugar, molasses, eggs, and vanilla. Add dry in- gredients and the oatmeal mixture. Beat until smooth. Bake at 350F. for 35 min- utes in a greased and floured 9x 13-inch pan.

Then place under broiler for 2-3 minutes. foxes, and is within a few miles of Paris. France has counterattacked by offering bounties for killing foxes, but the British still fear the epidemic will reach the Channel ports. Killed Many Pets In 1969, when the first case of a rabid dog in more than 50 years was reported in Britain, the government ordered the killing of hundreds of pets and farm animals within a 12-mile ramus at where the dog was found, and banned imports of cats, dogs, and other felines and canines for two years. Today, animals brought into the country must spend six months in quarantine and are given inoculations, whether or not they have been inoculated abroad. People who have tried to avoid this separation by smuggling their pets Deceit often serves a dual purpose. It protects the mantis against its enemies as well as helping it ambush a meal. Pursued in turn by larger insect eaters like birds and lizards, the mantis avoids detection by clever disguise, blending perfectly with tree or leaf to avoid capture. Tropical species far outdo their northern relatives at the art of camouflage. In the jungle of Malaysia, one is so delicately beautiful and so perfectly matched to the flower it frequents that a local legend says the mantis isn't really an insect at all, but a flower come to life.
