HAPPY DAYS -FOR THE
Late Dr. Wocdworth Made
Study, of the Palolo Worm
PUZZLE TO THE ZOOLOGISTS.
Why the Creature Appeared at 3!45
a. m. on a Certain Day In Early No
vember or Late In Octobsr of Each
Year According to th Moon.
Dr. William McMlchael Woodworth
of the Museum of Comparative Zoolo
gy at Harvard, who died recently, was
Uie discoverer of tho solution of a
mystery which had puzzled zoologists
for half a century. This was the iden
Utlcatlon of that mysterious worm of
the Pacific ocean which makes Its ap
pearance on 11 clockwork schedule once
a .eor. exactly at 3:43 In the morning
of a certain day In early November or
late In October, according to the quar
tcrinur of the moon.
This remarkable animal is found on
a certain few reefs of a few of tho
south sea Islands. It occurs in parts
of Samoa, in Tonga, in Fiji nd In
some of the Now Hebrides and bears
the name palolo In the several island
tongues. Its recurrence each year is
a matter of no little interest to the
islanders, for it is esteemed as a deli
cacy, being used raw, Just as it comes
dripping from the salt water or cooked
by steaming In the pit ovens. Either
way It has the flavor of highly salted
Bplnach and Is quite saUsfactory to the
Differs From Other Animals.
It differs from all known animals by
reason of its strict observance of a
calendar nil Its own, yet one which the
islanders have learned to compute for
themselves. The hour of its appear
ance is the moment of slack water ebb
nt tho third quarter of tho moon which
comes nearest tho first of November.
Five minutes before tho appointed
time tho roof pools are empty, tho
sweep of the lino nets used In the fish
ery yield nothing but a water haul.
All at once tho water becomes allvo
with a writhing mass of worms, each
of tho diameter of a pack thread and
five or 6lx Inches long. Tho fishers
ralso one shout of wild gleo when tho
palolo appear, but that Is tho only
shout, for afterward all mouths are
crammed with the dainty morsels as
fast as tho nets can scoop them up.
In the earliest days of tho London
mission In Samoa tho Itev. John B.
Stair secured specimens of palolo and
sent them preserved in alcohol to John
Edward Gray of the British museum.
By him their position In tho scale of
the lower life was determined, crrone.
ously it has slnco been proved. Ho
gave tho specimens tho scientific name
of Palolo virldls. For fifty years tho
strange periodicity of tho palolo was
n perpetual challengo to students, it
was the despair of zoology.
He Solved the Mystery.
In 1808 Dr. Woodworth determined
to solve the mystery, went to Samoa
for tho purpose and established himself
In a Samoan community nearest tho
roof where the palolo crop was great
est, at Falelatal, on tho south shore
of tho Island of Upolu. In the earlier
experience which ho had had In Fiji
tho previous year, in tho consent of tho
oxperlenco of all other students who
had essayed tho problem, ho recognized
that tho mero observation of tho rising
of tho worms in the reef pools at the
gray of dawn offered no soluUon. no
prepared for tho event by establishing
a rude laboratory In which ho could
subject the reef itself to close examina
tion. This consisted of a scries of
ranks on tho shoro in which ho deposit
ed lumps of coral cut from tho outer
reef und kept them under a steady flow
of water drawn from tho lagoon. Ho
established tho necessary control by
crumbling other coral blocks to pieces

and identifying all tho worms discover
ed In the crannies.
On tho appointed morning, as soon as
the first shouts coming out of tho dark
ness across tho lagoon proved that tho
palolo had appeared, Dr. Woodworth
was delighted to discover by lantern
light that the worms were rising from
the coral In his tanks and that the
laboratory was giving him tho oppor
tunity for study which the reefs had
for so many years refused to two gen
erations of zoologists. In eager haste
he picked tho coral blocks to pieces
and was able to Qnd tho source of the
Gray In Error.
!ray had been in error when he
named the worms. His detcrmlnaUon
was based on more fragments. Wood
worth was able to boo the whole proc

worms, but only specific spawning or
gans of a much larger -worm which
never was Keen otslde U10 coral. This
worm he identified as a member of a
well known genus and established for
it n new species under tho nnme of
The history of the recurrence of the
palolo became somewhat plain. Under
the seasonal instinct to spawn the
worms in the coral, each as large as
a man's linger, shed the palolo to
writhe for an hour in the still water
of tho reef pools and by this means to
insure tho continuity of life. It Is not
yet known why this Instinct Is so true
to the calendar of Its race, but Dr.
Woodworth was able to solve the great
