Pcnn- sylv.inf.i, fnr his How dn they ninlir Our busy pioneer ancestors made llieir own soap, mostly from fals and lye. Na- turally this bubbly stuff was not related to our fancy chemi- cal detergents. Neither was it a menace to the environment. Nature can cope with .soapy water because Us mole- cule can tie broken apart and recycled useful new ingre- dients. Modern detergents pol- lute our streams ami soil be- cause the earth has trouble re- cycling (heir stubborn mole- cules. Most likely your pi'eat-greal pi-.inrlmother made most ot her soap in a large metnl pot. Fur v.eeks she saved the used bacon croase and every scrap of waste fat. Chances are, the big metal pot was kept out- doors in the backyard, act over a pialc to hold a (ire. When soap-making day came around, the greasy [als were put inlo t'nc poL with some water and a helping of a strong alkaline in- gredient, The causlic alkali may have been lye. When (lie fire boiled the mix- ture, a chemical miracle oc- curred. Hie f.-its and the strong alkali changed themselves into. nf all things, a batch of soupy Miap. This was silted and strained and left to set solid. Then it was chopped into hand- sized When mixed with water, its foamy bubles did n fine job on the laundry and performed all the other house- hold cleaning duies. Maybe the family bought a few bars of fancy face soap. Or perhaps they made an extra fine batch at home and perfumed It with fragrant herbs or berries. Factories that make ral soap still use the same basic recipe. If your family trusts you to help in the kitchen, you can see how it works for yourself. When Ihe frying pan is a diry greasy mess, add some water and a small helping of ordinary wash- ing soda. As the mixture boils, it forms a foamy lalher that cleans out the pan. Believe it or not that frothy gook is simple soap. The experiment works be- cause washin" soda is an alkali chemical called a base. Strong bases cat organic material such as skin and flesh. The lye used to unstop drains is caustic al- kali of sodium, ocygcn and hy- drogen. This strong base is a fast soap-making ingredient. When boiled with fatty oils, both ingredients get lost hy changing Ihemsehes into soupy soap. This is one of Ihosc chem- ical miracles that changes cer- tain ingredients into something new and very different. Nowadays, most factories use cheap coal tar wastes lo make detergents instead of honest-lo- goddness soap. When dirty drain water with dctergenl.s goes into our streams, the de- tergent chemicals steal oxygen from the poor fishes. True, de- Icrgents work like soap and may do even in hard ler. flut ecology people know how to solve that little pro! lern. First we add a little wash- ing ?ofla lo soften the hard wa- ter, then (ho soap can do its bubbling best. Andy henrk a Vi'orld (look Globe Maureen Kane, ago 9, of Old Bridge, Ncn Jersey, for her question: Can snakes hear? Snakes are stone deaf and .ills are color-blind, nils news makes a snake charmer look aLhcr foolish, likewise the 'lashy matador pretends o goad a bewildered hull by waving his red cape. A snake las no ears as wo 10. But his body is sensi- ive to vibrations, and sounds are vibrations. As he slithers along close to the ground, his skin can sense the vibrations of approaching footsteps. Ho cannot hear a nole of the snake charmer's flute. But his eyes keep a keen watch on the surroundings, especially any- thing that moves. The snake charmer knows this and sways his music. Tlie snake moves from side to side to watch eai-h movement and seems lo be swaying with the fluty tune. A bull also keeps a watch on moving objects, through he sees them only in black and white tones. The flashy cape torments him to fury because it is moving and it is his nature lo attack any- thing that looks like a sneaky enemy.

(Copyright Chronicle) I nhiishing Co. 1D72) than if 1 tnok a .sleeping medi- cation. 1 have repeatedly seen and read references in articles that sugar is harmful to the heart, brain, liver, and one health marine that even said that it has such a severe ef- fect im the brain that iL can make a person insane or crim- inal. What should be the nor- mal intake of sugar for a day? Dear lli'iuler Your choco- late candy is probably Ihc safest sleeping pill thai I have ever heard about. IL is too bad it wouldn't for everybody. No doubt you have sweet dreams. Nov. don't worry nboul the stnry. H is true that if you rnrtni) much sugar in Ihe forms nf desserts, leverages or any other way it can increase your calorics and lead to ex- fnt deposits. This, like obesity from all other types of overeating, can lead to heart disease and a number of olher disorders. Most people need to watch Iheir calories and are better off eating calories lhat alsi; provide essential vitamins and nutrients not fount] in re- fined sweets like sugar. Ob- viously, sugars and sweets should not be taken to the ex- clusion of other needed items n the diet. Of course, individuals with certain medical disorders (Diabetes, for example) need to control the amount of sugar they eat, and it is true that there arc rare individuals who cannot handle ordinary sugar uccnuse they can't absorb it from the intestines. These rare individuals have a? absent eu- 7yme in Ibo digestive tract, There have been a few scare reports recently on sugar com- pletely exaggerating the estab- lished fads. Sugar exists in most fruits and vegetables and of course is obtained from pro- cessing sugar heels and sugar cane. Almost all foods (includ- ing proteins and fats) are pro- cessed lo glucose (a type of re- fined sugar) by Ihe body before they can be used for energy or cell functions. The idea that sugur causes insanity is pure hogwash. Some studies Rllcmping lo link sugar intake lo heart dis- ease have not won general BC- ceplance by reputable scien- tists. I don't think your liking for chocolate at bedtime is going to you to be insane or crim- inal unless you resort lo steal- ing someone else's chocolates. West separatism sentiment lr of eastern press TORONTO U'Pi IMmonlon publisher Mel Hurtig baid yesterday llifi idea llial there is a strong sentiment, tor sepa- ratism in Western Canada is a "prepostrous myth created hy tlic eastern press." He told 300 high school stu- dents from across Canada at- tending a conference on Cana- dian studies that he is fre- quently astounded when he sees printed results of visits to the West by writers for some east- ern papers. Mr. Hurtig, Liberal candidate in Edmonton West in the next federal election, said eastern writers propagate myths about the West because they spend their lime "talking to provincial premiers and the big boys in Hie oil industry and ihc Cham- ber ol Commerce types and al- most never the people." "Western separatism is some- thing IhaL has been invented, a very fev. people, mosl of whom represent the foreign-con- trolled oil industry in Calgary one or I wo per cent of the most wealthy, or the element in Ilie Prairie and B.C. business communities. "The primu characteristics ol these people is that they ivoulc gladly sell Parliament Hill to the highest bidder if tne price was right." GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES CORKS [C 1117; Bi Th.

Uiere Mas no way his line o( play could possibly land Ihc four heart conlracl. A simple eounl or the adverse distri- bution as the play developed would have uncovered Ihe only chance lor success on Ihc deal. Norlh opened the bidding wHh club and made preemptive jump ovtrcall nl two spades. Altho the tak- ing o[ nine IricVs would have been routine. North coulrj hardly try three no trump over partner's free bid of three hearts lacking a stop- per in spades. When he rebid four clubs. South pcrsisled tn four hearts and the auction subsided. West opened the eight of spades. East played the ace snd rcturnr-rl the West. ruffing away Soutli's king wilh the tlcuce ol hearts. The Uu Imij of dia- monds M-hiri: was taken hy dummy's ace. A heart vss led to the king, followed ty Ihe ace, and, yomewhal sur- prisingly, silGTYtd on the second ing that East had a trump trick. With Ihe defensive book in, declarer was anxious to dis- pose of his diamond loser, so he proceeded to cash dummy's clubs in Ihe hope that East would follow suit long enough for South to tatn the needed discard. KasL held only a doublcton cluh, however, and after ruffmg the third round the queen of hearts, he edited uith a spade and declarer was permanently disconnect- ed from dummy. In the end lie was obliged to surrender Ihe selling trick in diamonds to West. South's line of play could juccccd only if East had been dealt H cards originally. He has already shown up with seven spades, oric diamond, and three hearts after Wesl takes a discard on the second round of Irumps. This ac- counts for II of East's cards, so he can have, at most. tvu> clubs. South should, in fact, hcpe lhat that is his oppo- nent's actual holding, for success becomes assurid. By simply playing a third round of trumps and giving East his trump trick, the lat- has no more dia- exit with a spade. Declarer ruffs and now can run Ihe clubs with complete confidence. When the suit divides three-two, the ten of diamonds Is dis- carded on the fourlh round ami claims his con- having the ace of spades, a spade ruff, one to wl trick.-' Bridge results Ladies Wed.
