Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Ben J. Losser, age 11, of Glendale, Arizona, for his question: Cloud seeding Last year in Florida, tests were made on a number of fluffy white cumulus clouds. Those that were seeded shed almost 33 times more rain than similar clouds that were not seeded. This sounds like suc- cess. However, a five-year seed- ing experiment over a large in- land area reduced the normal rainfall by 20 per cent. This ef- fort in man-made weather turned out to be a dismal fail- ure. The formation of raindrops is a very complicated weather event. Scientists started probing the mystery way back in the 1930s. They even managed to create miniature showers on a laboratory scale. Everybody had high hopes that at last mankind could control the weather. In the 1940s, the tests were taken outdoors. Clouds were seeded with crystals of dry ice, frozen carbon dioxide, ;ine silver iodide or dry ice crystals, either from the ground or from planes. If even a few of the seeds become coatei with gobs of misty moisture they can start the complex rain making process within the whole cloud. But we need tc know a very, great deal more about cloud seeding before we can guarantee a shower of the right, size in the right place at the right time.

Over 27 million pounds of as- >irin are used each year In the Jnited States. That is enough ,o treat more than 17 billion icadaches. In addition to headaches, as- pirin is used to treat muscle >ains, decrease fever, treat ar- hritis and for a host of other iroblems. Since anyone can buy it across the counter, pa- tients often don't realize that it Is a potent medicine. Aside from allergic reactions, in large doses it can and does some- times cause coma and death. It should not be regarded as a simple household remedy but should be treated with respect and kept away from children.

Sali- cylate is also used as a salt ailed sodium salicylate. The sodium salt cannot be used in jatients who do not tolerate alt, like patients with heart ailure. Origin ally, salicylate was obtained from willow bark, 'hich is where its name comes rom. Willow bark was used by le ancients to lower fever. So- ium salicylate was used in the ater 19th century in the treat- ment of rheumatic fever and it is still used today for that pur- pose. Aspirin as we know it ap- peared in 1899. Aspirin will lower fever but will not affect the temperature of normal people. It accom- ilishes this by dilating the ilood vessels in the skin and causing the body to lose heat. Two aspirin tablets are about as effective in relieving para as he usual small dose of mor- )hine or codeine taken by nouth. Aspirin is particularly good in rleieving muscle pains, ;eneralized aches and head- iches but not so at re- ieving pain from internal or- gans, like kidney or gall lad- der pain. It is a good thing to :ake before going to the den- tist as it will significantly de- crease the pain you miglit feel. Salicylates can irritate the stomach. In the acid juice, small crystals form on the sto- mach lining and cause irrita- tion and even hemorrhage. You should take aspirin after eat- ing, not on an empty stomach.

The person taking large amounts of aspirin regularly should be under a doctor's care and he wjll be able to prescribe a good alkalizer for this.
