North Carolina, for his question: What is light made of? This problem puzzled great brains for centuries. Some concluded that light is made from tiny particles called cor- puscles. Others were sure that light is an assortment of vibrating waves. Most agreed that it is some form of energy. But for some 200 years, the ex- perts thought that it came in either waves or corpuscles. Finally the dispute was settl- ed in the simplest way possible. Both sides were proved right. We now know that light is a form of energy, a special blend of electricity and magnestism called elec- tromagnetic energy. As such it is a phenomenon, which means that it just is. Naturally we want to know more than this. And. after centuries of probing, scien- tists can explain a great deal about how it behaves, which is the nature of light. For earthlings. the most familiar source of light is the blazing sun. Our neighborhood star is a fiery nuclear furnace, pouring forth radiant energies in all directions. These electromagnetic energies include radio, visible light plus invisible ranges of infrared and ultra-violet light. All these energies fan out from a source which is the sun. and travel in straight lines at an average speed of 186.000 miles per second. They travel in pulsing waves of longer and shorter lengths. Radio, light and other forms of electromagnetic energy travel in waves of different lengths, each vibrating at its own fre- quency of so many pulses per second. Light has a series of different frequencies ranging from the short blue rays of the spectrum to the long red rays. The nature of light is the same, whether its source is the sun, a lamp or a camp fire. It fans out in straight lines from its source. Its assorted wavelengths vibrate at different frequencies as they go. Their angles are separated when a beam of white light passes through a glass prism. Then the separate wavelengths display the band- ed colors of the rainbow. In the 1600s. the great Isaac' Newton observed how the colors normally blended in or- dinary light are separated by a glass prism. He concluded that light must be made from tiny particles, streaming forth in straight lines. Newton's amazing theories were never quite wrong. But in this case, he was only half right. Though scientists considered his theory of light, until modern times most of them disagreed with his corpuscular, or parti- cle theory. Around 1900, Max Planck of Germany demonstrated that light travels in infinitesimal packages of energy called quanta. The energy in each quantum is related to its wavelength to its length and to the number of its vibrations per second. We might say that light is made of wavelengths of electromagnetic energy traveling in quantum par- ticles. It is hard to picture the fact that light is both waves and particles. However, we can compare it roughly with the ocean. Its water is made of molecule particles and the surface of the sea heaves up and down in tossing waves. Naturally, the antics of the ocean are related only very vaguely to the antics of light. Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

No pain at all. After 10 days he saw a doctor. He was not our regular doctor, and he thought he had a heart condition. He gave him some pills for this. Our regular doctor came back and he put him in the hospital where his leg was elevated and hot packs applied. He spent four days in the hospital and his leg was still swollen. The doctor stopped the heart pills as his tests showed him to be in excellent health and with no heart problems. We moved to Florida and our new doctor looked over both reports. He is puzzled by the swelling, too. His ankle and foot are still swollen, but the swelling has gone down in his leg. He has been wearing an elastic stocking as recommended but feels that it is cutting off the circulation as it is too tight at the top. The doctor suggested that he might have a circulation problem but said he drdn't know. I'd appreciate your thoughts about this. Dear Reader It is true that some heart problems cause swelling of the feet, BUT it is swelling of both feet or both legs and not marked swelling of just one. Swelling of just one leg usually means failure of the veins to drain the leg properly as car, occur if there is a clot in a deep vein inside the leg. I would guess that is what your own doctor thought when he elevated the leg and used hot packs. The lymph system in the leg can also be obstructed. Not many people realize there is still another circulation besides the blood circulation. We have an extensive network of channels'' throughout the body that cir- culates that clear fluid that sometimes seeps out of a wound. The lymph channels are all connected to all those lymph glands in the body and eventually empty the lymph into the circulation near the heart. When it is obstructed it can cause swelling. Then, there is the possibility of an inflammation, but there should be some physical evidence if that were the case. The mystery is, what is obstructing the flow of lymph or the normal drainage of the veins in that leg? That could be a lot of different things. Happily though, it sounds like your husband is getting well. The foot and ankle stay swollen longest because they are literally the bottom of the bucket, and that is where the fluid collects. As the swelling diminishes, there may be less need for elastic support at the top of the stocking. And, you should tell your husband's doctor that the Stocking is too tight at the top. He can probably fix that problem for, vou. SHORT RIBS I HAVE A NEW IMPROVEP LOUPLf AND CARRY A BEASIE'" KINS IS GOING- ON A WILL TOUR. HE COULD GET LOST I HATE 10 SEE HIM SPEND OUR TAX -IKE THAT.
