Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HIRAU5 Monday, April 30, 19, 3 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, MAY 1 Your birthday today: Practicality takes over this year, requires many changes. By year's end comes a bal- ance, success in proportion to your diligence. Today's na- tives are energetic, graceful, and the men often have a streak of egotism. ARIES (March 21 April Letting well enough alone is again a fine art. Unless you are skilled, leave things elec- trical and mechanical for oth- ers repair. Ask Andy Ceramics Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Amelia Chan, age 10, of Ottawa, On- tario, for her question: Exactly what is meant by cer- amics? This is a happy story that started way back when our an- cestors lived in caves. Already they had learned how to cre- ate and. control fire. They kept a campfire going to shed warmth and to scare away night-prowl- ing animals. They learned to cook meat and how to char sticks to make harder spikes for their spears and arrows. Then they discovered that the campfire also could bake pots to hold food. Most likely the cave dwellers made this wonderful discovery by accident. The family used stones to build a hearth for the precious campfire. Some of the stones started out as rather Today history By THE CANADIAN PRESS "The United States pur- chased the French lands west of the Mississippi River 170 years ago today million cash and million of pub- lic debt. The purchase of Louisiana grew almost cas- ually out of trade and neu- trality talks with the Napo- leonic government, and geo- graphic limits were only vaguely agreed upon. But in the sale, the TJ.S doubled its area at one stroke, and the increased feeling of im- portance was as valuable to the young country as the land itself. Soviet Union awarded the Lenin Peace Prize to Fidel Castro of Cuba. RCN destroyer Athabaska was sunk during the Second World War. F. D. Rooserelt of the United States opened the New York World's Fair. 1810-The U.S. post office was established. Ville Marie school, the first school in Montreal, was opened in a stable. moist chunks of earthy clay. Somebody, perhaps the moth- er, noticed that the heat of the fire changed these chunks of clay. They became hard dry material. Then one day she had a bril- liant idea. She molded some of the pasty clay to form a hol- low shape and she placed it right in the fire. The result was a pot, perhaps the first piece of pottery ever made by hu- man hands the first piece of what we now call ceramics. It was fun to mix a muddy paste from clay and water. It was fun to model it into a shape and more fun to let it bake in the fire. The finished object might be something useful or a splendid work of art. No won- der pottery making was so pop- ular back in caveman days. The making of ceramic ob- jects never went out of style and through the years the work improved. Nowadays, we use hundreds of different recipes and fire them in huge furnaces. In North America, ceramics is a multi-billion dollar business and the list of ceramic items is as long as your arm. However, many folk still like to use the old style methods to create vases and other artistic cer- amics. The ceramics industry makes bricks to build houses, red tiles for the roofs and shiny glazed tiles for the floors. The main ingredients for these items are clays and water. The pasty mixtures are baked in huge slow ovens called kilns. Silicon, carbon and perhaps other ingredients are added to make fire resistant bricks to line furnaces. Eartheware dishes are ceramics, so are fine chinas and porcelains. The glossy glazes used to coat these objects also are ceramics. The list goes on and on. In the world of industry, spe- cial ceramic recipes are used to make spark plugs, electric insulators and hundreds of oth- er useful items. New Space-age ceramics are called cermets because they behave some- what like ceramics and some- what like metals. They are very hard and brittle and able to stand super-high temperatures. Some cermets are used to line jet engines, others are made especially for space traveling. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.
