High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 19, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Ask Andy Andy sends a Complete 20-volume set of the world Book encyclopedia to Terry Wendell age 12, of Sarasota Florida for his question what caused this year s red tides every few years the offshore Waters of Florida and California turn Reddish Brown and soon the beaches Are strewn with the bodies of dead fish. In the summer of 1971, these red tides infested both Florida and California. Scientists worked intensively though they did not learn All they wanted to know. But they suspect that the causes of the fish Slaughter May be somewhat different in the two areas. The red tides in Florida were caused by a miniature organism with the scientific name of Gymn Odinius Breve. The California red tides were caused by a different organism named Gonya lax polyhedral. Under certain conditions these microscopic Marine algae reach a fantastic to ask a question of Andy address postal cards a not letters a to ask Andy Caro of the High Point Enterprise. Be sure to include your name age name of your parents and address. Valuable prizes Are Given to those whose questions Are selected for the column. Population explosion. Their teeming cells tinge the water with Muddy Brown Brownish red and sometimes almost blood red. In nature population explosions always end in disaster for the exploding species and usually for All other species in the environment. The teeming algae soon die in teeming numbers. These Plant cells decay and the process of decay uses oxygen. For a Long time scientists supposed that fishes in the red tide Waters died because their oxygen Supply was depleted by masses of the decaying algae. This May prove to be part of the Story. But researchers now have evidence that the red tide algae also produce poisons that Are fatal to the fish populations. The Florida algae release their deadly toxin while they Are living. This toxic chemical has been isolated and studied in some detail. It is a lightweight molecular substance that attacks the nerves and blocks their electrochemical impulses. Apparently this toxin also attacks the nervous systems of other backbones animals. Researchers Hope to learn a lot More about it. This summer California researchers Learned that their red tide algae do not release their toxin while they Are living. But after they die. This toxin has not been isolated As precisely but the evidence suggests that it is similar to that form the Florida algae. Apparently it also attacks the nervous systems of the fishes. The next step is to learn what factors Start these population explosions in the red tide algae. At present nobody knows the answers though Marine biologists have several suggestions. Whatever these causes Are they must be present Only once in every two or three years a when red tides tend to occur. It is suggested that water temperature May be a Factor. Some researcher Are investigating the possible role of various chemicals dumped into the offshore Waters by streams and Rivers. Some of these might be Man made pollutants though at present most researchers think this is unlikely. Pollution is dumped into the Ocean every Day and red tides occur every two or three years As they did in the past. Andy sends a world Book Atlas to Frank Blum age 17, of san Francisco California for his question How did the word Chicago originate let a face it human nature is a mixed bag of worthy and not so worthy qualities. We All want to do our Best and feel proud of ourselves this is Fine. But we miss the Point when we try to boost ourselves by putting somebody else Down. Some people try to get away with this foolishness by name calling. No need to spell out the Long list of names we have invented for people of various races and nationalities. The Chicano of course Are americans of mexican descent or origin. Nobody seems certain How the term originated. But there was a time when some people referred to any mexican american As Chico instead of by his right name. Perhaps Chicano is a sort of plural form of Chico. Naturally the mexican americans were sensitive about this name calling. But they added a touch of their own special humor to the problem. Tiey took Over the term and now proudly Call themselves Chicano. To color and Black i White . 882-8319 Bent buy Bint to own Quot the family store Ano Catalon order Center \. F. I s.
