(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) Payments balance surplus shrinks Mm HANDS ARE GETTING I FAT, CHARLIE WOW.J if' THE ONLY PERSONI WO HAS OVERWEIGHT HANRS.' rUMBLEWEEDS-By TOM K. RYAN OTTAWA (CP) Canada's balance-ol-payments surplus stood nl 'million at, mid- year after a marked contraction in April, May and June, Statis- tics Canada said today. Last year, when Canada piled up an unusually large surplus of million, the mid-year sur- plus was million. The statistics bureau said Canada's commodity trade sur- plus continued strong in the sec- ond quarter of Bui a larger deficit in non-commodity The moon's phases Andy sends a complete volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia lo Nancy Pres- ton, age 9, of Albanny, New York, for her question: isn't (he moon always Vfiy nil? The ball-shaped moon turns aroune and around to give all Is sides a chance to face the un. But somehow it manages o keep the same side facing he earth, so we never see Uie thcr half of the big ball. What's more, most of the time we see nly part of our half. We see nly the part that is bathed in olden sunshine. Once each lonth the sun shines all over ur half and we see the full loon. But it doesn'l last be- ause Ihe moon moves on and ie sunshine creeps around lo 'ie other side. Notice how the morning sun bines on the east side of a ouse. Then the west side casls shadow. In the evening, the est side gets the sunshine and ie east side gels the shade. stretch your mind way up i the moon. The beaming sun up there in the sky also 93 lillion miles away in space. olden sunbeams fan out in all irections. If yon turn to face it, icy fall on your face and your adow falls behind you. Sun- cams also fall on half the loon and the other half is in darkness. If the moon stayed exactly in certain position, the sun ould keep shining all over tho de that faces the earth. Then e would see a full moon all e time. But up in the sky, othing stays still. The earth nil the moon swing around like couple of dizzy dancers and ever rest for a moment. Each ear they travel together in a 'ge circle around the sun. As cy go, the moon keeos I'inging in circles around the rth. Each of these moon or- ts takes about a month. It ves the sun a chance to shine all sides of the round moon hut we see only one side, nd as daylight and darkness eep across our side of the oon, we see only the sunny rt. GOREN ON BRIDGE Once each month, the orbiling moon passes between us end the sun. Then dayb'ght covers the hall we never see and our side is hidden in shadowy dark- ness. But not for long. The moon moves on its way, a thin sliver of sunshine peeps around one side and we welcome the New. Moon. As the moon moves on. the golden sliver grows bigger. In about two weeks, the moon is around the opposite side of its orbit. Now the earth is between the moon and the sun. The sun shines all over the side thai faces us and we see the Full Moon. But not for long. The orbiting moon moves on its way and gradually turns its other side to face the sun. The daylight creeps around to the side we never see. And as this happens, the darkness creeps across our side of the moon. Shadows be- gin to hide one side of the Full Moon. Each night they bide a little more and the round pump- kin moon shrinks to half and quarter size. At last the moon passes between the earth and the sun once again. And once again we see the Old Moon dis- appear, just before the next New Moon appears. The earth spins around on its axis once every 24 hours. So daylight and daj-kness move around our globe every calend- er day. But the moon "lakes al- most a ironth to spin on its axis. Each lunar day lasts about two weeks, and so does each lunar night. Meantime the moon makes an orbit around the earth, keeping the same side turned towards us. This is why we see the sunlit areas change and why the round pumpkir moon appears only once each month. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Shelley Martens, age II, of Richmond, British Col- umbia, for her question: Win arc policemen rallrd cons? This mosl likely happened in London. Without a doubt those who started it 'iked slangy ex- trade and a lowering of Ihe ex-; ceptionally high value of the Ca- nadian dollar in international exchange markels in June, cut into the over-all surplus. The balance-of-paymenls sur- plus for April, May and June was million, compared with a surplus of million in the first quarter of 1971 and a sur- plus of million in April, May and June of last year. The commodity trade surplus in the second quarter of 1571 was S559 million, on exports of million and imports of million. This surplus com- pared with one of million in the second quarter of 1970, and one ol million in the first three months of 1971. There was a 5401 million defi- cit in non-merchandise transac- tions lehveen Canada and other countries in April, May and June this year. This compared with a ?55S million deficit in the first three months of ]971 and a eficit of mllion in April, May and June, 1970. Traditionally, Canada runs a deficit on its international bal- ance of payments. Whatever surplus is achieved on commod- ity exports commodity im- uorls is usually more offset by payments a.broad for services, :ch as freight, insur- ance, travel, and interest and dir-'-r'1- r- foreign invest- ment. Howevr for (lie last 18 months, Canada has run a big commodity trade surplus, re- sulting in an over-all balance- of-psymer'- surplus. Exports to Europe, in particular, have been booming, while Canadian purchases from the United Sta- teas last year showed slow growth because of an economic slow-down.

The word cop happens to date way way hack in the English lan- guage. Sutih simple little words tend to change their meanings and add new ones. Through the years, the word "cop" meant the top of a mountain, a coil of thread, a spider and several other unrelated items. It also meant to catch or capture. Shady characters tend to waste many golden hours trying to avoid getting caplured or cop- ped. Naturally, the policeman's job to do the capturing. When shady characters got copped, he did the copping _ so it seemed logical to call him a cop. But this term rightfully belongs lo Ihesc shady char- acters who invented ii. Afler all. they are the ones who have (o worn' day and night about IwiiiR raptured. They need n shady slang word for police- man. So it seems hardly fair when ordinary folk use their secret password.
