Andy sends a complete 22- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Jo- seph Koziarz, age 9, of Rome, New York, for his question: Why are the planets spheres? Molding a round planet is an enormous job. But the same forces also do smaller jobs. When we watch them at work in a small way, we can under- stand why planets are round and also how they were mold- ed. These big projects are re- lated to falling stones and floating feathers and also to what happens when you swing a pail of water in a fast whirl. When you drop a stone, it falls to the ground. If you drop in a pood, it sinks to the all sides, which means it pulls equally hard on all sides. If the earth were shaped like a square box, the force of grav- ity would pull down the high corners. It strives to keep all the material evenly arranged around that point in the mid- dle. This is how gravity mold- ed the planers earth and the other into round spheres. it also falls to the it floats on top of the water As we know, all these every day events are ruled by grav ty. The mighty force hugs us to the surface of the earth anc pulls us down when we fall. It julls at all the material in the whole planet And it pulls al of this material toward a cen- tral point down in the very middle of the earth. This most important point is ailed the centre of gravity. From there it reaches out in all directions, pulling every bit Professional people listed among Edmonton addicts However, this is only part of the story. The earth is made from many different substances, some heavier and some light- er. Gravity pulls heavier mate-' rial down through ligher ma- terials. This is why stones sink through water and even feath- ers sink through the filmy air. Corks bob on the waves be- cause their material is lighter than water. When gravity molded the earth into a sphere, it pulled the heaviest mate- rials into the centre. The oth- ers were arranged like onion skins around the heavy core, with the lightest layer'on the which don't, so there's less bother with the next extensive project. Notliing goes quite as planned.

EDMONTON (CP) Profes- sional people and white-collar workers were among the 153 drug addicts included in a study of those receiving or seeking medical treatment last summer. The five-month study by Uni- versity of Alberta psychology students and financed by the federal Opportunities for Youth project, showed almost four per cent were professional peo- ple and eight per cent were white collar workers. About 10 per cent were stu- dents, 46 per cent skilled la- borers and 3 per cent unskilled laborers, the study showed. The report, which made it clear the 155 were not the total of addicts in Edmonton last summer, said there were three times as many male addicts as female and the female addicts tended to be younger. Something else also helped to do this enormous job. It goes to work in a small way when you swing a pail of water over your head very fast. The water does not spill, even when the )ail swoops upside down. This i a p p e n s when things swing around fast. And the earth has >een spinning around fast for billions of years. This helped to mold the planet into a sphere and also to arrange its mate- rials in layers around the cen- tre. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. Don't be surprised at finding resistance to your plans. Shout- ing does no good. Older people are more amenable to reason SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. There may be opposition, which doesn't exist at higher ranges of your field. Keep your sense of humor. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. You're tempted to take on too much; reduce your drive and avert fatigue. Be indepen- dent, unwavering once you've made a judgment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Older family connections get involved in business deals, may complicate matters. See that minor discrepancies don't escalate into quarrels AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. Major changes seem to in- vent themselves. Tact is needed to keep open further re- finements of choice, details of future projects.

His direct raise of partner's demand opening to three spades was warranted inasmuch ai he has three trumps and eight high card points. When South makes an im- mediate slam try by bidding four clubs, North should slow down the proceedings a bit by signing off at four spades. His holding in clubs is not all that impressive inasmuch as partner's call is a cue bid designating first round con- to! and may not be baaed on a suit. The raise to six dia- monds over South'a second cue bid was totally without merit, but by that tine it is doubtful if the former would fcave quit short of a slam. West opened tha jack of hearts and when the dummi was spread, declarer ob- that tha combined holding in clubs left thing to be desired. If one of the defenders held a doubk- ton king-queen or if East bad a singleton honor, then the play of the ace followed by small club would restrict tha opposition to one trick in the suit. South played a small heart from dummy, won the first trick in his hand with the ace, md before attempting to caum tin club iituittao, cashing the ace and king. West showed out on the sec- Dad round, discarding the four of hearts. Dummy was entered by overtaking the ten of diamonds with the queen and a spade was led so that South could finesse the ten in his hand alter East followed with the six. The queen of spades draw the last trump as West with first the six and then the seven of hearts. Declarer decided, after come deliberation, not to commit himself immediately In dubs by cashing the ace. As a preliminary measure, he led the seven from his hand. West followed with the deuce, the three was played from dummy and East false- carded by winning the trick with the king. The latter ex- ited with a diamond and South played the ace, contin- ving with the jack to North's long as East followed suit with the nine. Unless East had false- carded, it appeared that West had started with four diamonds beaded by the eight and at least five hearts -be had discarded three hearts and his original lead of the jack marked him with the ten as part of a se- quence. He was known to have one spade and so far- one club. His original distri- bution consisted, then, of either five hearts and three clubs, or six hearts and two clubs. If it was the former, then declarer's only was to play the ace of clubs in the hope of felling the queen from East's hand. If West had the doubleton club, then South must proceed on the assumption that his juaifling card ii the ten, decided in favor ef pitying West for the short clubs and he led the jack from dummy. It did not ter whether or not East cov. ered with the queen, for West's ten was destined to fall under the jack in any and South picked up the entire suit. Observe that West cannot hold the double- ton queen, or else East would have won the first club lead with the tea, Ifettt A mighty helping of gravity is a built-in part of every star anr- planet. Even most of the moons are massive enough to own a sizeable helping of grav- ity. And from the very begin- ning, this built-in force worked to mold these heavenly bodies into spheres. The little moons 01 Mars are not very massive, so they have only a small quota of gravity. It is not strong enough to pull down the cor- ners and mold them into round bails.

(Copyright Chvsraicle Publishing Co. 1972) CALGARY (CP) The mun- I icipal District of F o o t h i 11 s, which borders the southern side of the city, has given final reading to a bylaw prohibiting the use of firearms along all road allowances. The bylaw, calling for fines of and enforcement by RCMP, was given final reading after being tabled since intro- duction in the falL The Municipal District Rockyview, which borders Cal- gary on the east, north and west, has a similar regulation and is to consider changes later this month which would prohi- bit use of firearms on all publir lands. The tightened regulations are the result of complaints from area farmers and ranchers about damage and unsafe con- ditions which have resulted from indiscriminate shooting. ONE I gEALLV PONT WANT JO READ. I'D NOT STAMP IT LI'l ABNER-By Al Capp AMY MEMBER GITTIN' 1 BEAT UP YELLS THE PASSWORD "ROBERT J ALL GOTTA'RUSH TO THASS TH'RULE AH SWORE TO LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Feeling too warm or too cold? Dear Dr. Lamb Why is it that my daughter and I have such a time adjusting to the temperatures in the home? She is always cold and I am con- stantly complaining that the temperature that is satisfactory for her is much too warm for me? I am 63 years old and she is 19 years old. Dear Reader This is a common complaint. Actually, the sensation of being hot or cold has very little to do with whether the body is warm or not. We perceive the sense of being hot or cold from nerve fibers which are in the skin. We do not have similar nerve fibers elsewhere in the body. Thus, when you burn your fin- ger you feel heat and pain ini- tially from fibers in the skin, but you may not feel any sen- sation of increased warmth in deeper tissues. The skin is a human radia tor. It has a lot to do with the cooling and temperature contro of the body just as the car ra diator does for your automo- bile. The hot blood inside the trolled by a little heat center in the brain. Interestingly enough this center can be af- fected by emotions or by hot spicy foods. The thermostat or the heat center in the brain sends out a message which causes us to increase or de- crease blood flow through the skin and increase and decrease the amount of evaporation from sweating or insensible loss of body water. The person who feels cold often doesn't have very marked blood flow through the skin and a good way to get rid of the sensation of coldness is to do something body is pumped through skin where the heat is the lost through the surface of the skin, just as the hot water from the car motor is circulated through the radiator to lose heat from the engine. Most of the heat from the body is lost through the skin either through direct transfer of heat to the environ- ment around it or from the evaporation of water which may be a small amount so that it is not visible or it might be in large amounts with sweating. The person who feels warm usually has a fairly marked in- crease in blood flow through the skin. These reactions, in- cluding sweating, are ail con- that will increase blood flew to the skin itself like mild exer- cise. A good hot tub bath will almost always increase a per- son's temperature and sense o warmth, the hot tub bath will prevent the normal evaporation of body-cooling mechanisms as well as increase circulation through tbe skin. The fact that sense of warmth we have or coldness from the skin irrespective of body temperature is why peo- ple have such a difficult time in telling whether they have their temperature. A person may have an increased body temperature but if there is a decreased blood flow through :he skin and decreased sweat- ing, they may actually feel cold. The converse is more of- :en true and the person may feel hot and think he has a fe- ver and then when he takes his emperature finds out it is nor- mal. Clothing traps the body heat at skin level and makes a per- on feel warmer even though it may not significantly increase i the body temperature.
