YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY, APRIL 19 Your birthday today: Pro- gress this year requires ser- ious thought and patience. Any changes now are temporary phases on the way to some more advanced de- velopment. Today's natives seek responsibility, but are often impractical. ARIES (March 21-April De-clutter your working place. Review your wardrobe and plan leplacements. Defer new ventures a few days more. Ask Andy some elaborate checking devices Meteor speed Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Seta Butler, age 11, of Tucson, Arizona, for his question: How fast do meteors travel? This topic takes IK on a tour of the spacious Solar and plunks us back on earth to consult figures, computers and astronomical Meteors are meteors' as long as they are space travelers and their spaceways range from inside Mercury to beyond Pluto. Out there, their speeds range from about mites per hour to an upper limit of miles per hour. The average meteor has been on a non-stop space voyage for perhaps five billion years. It belongs to the Solar System and it may travel on and on, around and around through all the enormous spaces- between tbe planets. Its speed is re- lated to its distance from the sun. So are the orbital speeds of the earth and the other planets. The reason for this is gravity, the gravitation- al attraction between the sun and any member of the solar family. The downward pull of the sun's gravity is offset by the circulating orbital paths of the planets. The strength of grav- ity diminishes with which means that the closer planets must orbit faster to keep from falling ictc the sun. A slow-poke planet would be pulled down into the fiery fur- nace. So would a meteor, if it traveled so slowly that the sun's gravity could grab it. The earth's orbital speed of miles per second is nicely' balanced to match the suns 'gravitational pull from a dis- tance of 93 million miles. At the other end of this bal- ancing act is something called escape velocity. If the earth's orbital speed accelerated to 26 miles per second, it wo'ild more than offset the pull of the sun. In fact, it could escape the sun's gravity entirely and be free to launch us on a space voyage Inyond the Solar Sys- tem. This super speed is _ called escape velocity and it also applies to space traveling ir.i2i- eors. In our neighborhood of the Solar System, 26 miles per sec- ord is the speed required to allow a traveling object to es- cape the gravity of the sun. Hence, a meteor traveling fast- er than this rarely if ever comes within range of our orbit. When such a speeder is checked and verified, astrono- mers suspect that it just might be a chance visitor from beyond the Solar System. T V In several strategic places, precise instruments are set up and staffed to keep a vigilant watch on meteors that come within range of the earth. Be- fore they were accelerated by the earths' gravity, most of them were traveling at about 26 mfles per second, or 93.600 miles per hour. Some were tra- velling more slowly, but only by a few miles per second. AI space travelling meteor going faster than 26 miles per second is very rare in our region of tbe Solar System.

Whether he returned a spade or a diamond, North must regain the lead and South is able to discard his three losing hearts on the ace-queen of spades and the ace of diamonds. His only losers on the deal were one diamond and one spade. Had East continued with a diamond at trick two, de- clarer would have been una- ble to effect tts plan: bow- ever, he had nothing to lose by trying.
