Thes Early mov ing were called flickers and while interest in them was High for a Brief period of time the Novelty soon wore off. And it seemed As though the fad of movies would fade quietly. Around the turn of the Cen Tury it appeared that moving pictures were something the Public could take or leave alone. After All Many of them merely consisted of people running or walking or pictures of Waves breaking on the Beach. It was not until about 1902 that a new ingredient was added to really made people take notice. And the magic ingredient in this Case was something called plot. When the Early films began telling stories even Short ones they became an instant hit. Since our first motion Pic Ture dramas were silent the actors and actresses had to use exaggerated facial expressions to help the audience know what was happening. Sometimes printed dialogue was inserted into the film As an added Aid. The first movie Heaters to show these films charged an admission of 5 cents and were called Nickelodeon.

Wednesday an Strucka Utility pole phonograph records but they did not prove very successful. It was quite a chore to adjust the sound on the record to the action in the film. By 1929, however a technique had been perfected that made it possible to put the sound directly on the film. And from that Point on silent films were a thing of the past. There Are a number of methods for putting sound on moving picture film and All of them Are quite complicated. A Complete and thorough explanation would take quite a bit More space than Andy has available. A Brief and very simple explanation of one method however will at least provide a glimpse. As an actor or actress Speaks a microphone picks up the sounds. This sound is converted into electric signals that in turn Are converted into a tiny beam of Light. A Lens focuses the on the Edge of an unexposed film and this Light is recorded there As a series of Light and dark bands. We Call this a sound track. After the movie film and the sound track film Are processed they Are put together in one film. Inside a film projector is a Small but powerful lamp called an exciter lamp. Light from this lamp shines through the sound track and strikes a photoelectric cell. Here the Light is converted into electric signals that Are then amplified and passed into a Loudspeaker. And out of the Loudspeaker comes sound. A sound track in a motion picture is the result of the efforts of a great Many people and considerable electronic know How. Each person and each piece of electronic equipment have a specific Job to do. The finished product which brings entertainment to millions of peo ple each Day is indeed a Marvel of our modern age. Andy sends a student Globe to Gail Page age 9, of Harrington iii., for her question what makes hair turn Gray the color of our hair is determined by the presence of tiny pigment granules scattered throughout each Shaft of hair. Beginning at the base of the hair under the Scalp these granules do not change once they Are distributed in the Shaft. Actually a person s hair does not turn Gray. Grading occurs when new hairs which do not have these tiny pigmentation specks replace the normally coloured strands. Hair usually becomes Gray gradually beginning around Middle age. The tendency to have Gray hair seems to run in families. Some people whose hair begins to come in Gray in their Early 20s can Trace the same characteristic to a Parent or close relative. The exact chemical mechanism which takes place in the hair bulb to cause the Lack of pigmentation is a mystery. Certain members of the Vitamin b Complex family were once considered important influences but research has not confirmed this belief.
