Intuitive capabilities now approach us- able levels if given half a chance. Today's natives have Ihe knack of figuring things out, both for quantity and reasons.

The North Star Andy sends a complete 2 volume set of the World Boo Encyclopedia to Billy Rose ago 8, of Charlotte, Nort Carolina, for his question: Why doesn't the North SI move? Our merry old world spins around and around like a diz dancer. If it stopped to rest f a while, the sun would stan still and all the stars woul stop moving over the sk Every star would stay in i fixed place, just as the Nor Star does. Actually, they don really move over our sky. They just seem to move because our dizzy earth spins around. An It happens to spin so that th North Star Rets left out of Ib starry parade. A big thing is easier to under Btand when we compare it witi something small. Polaris, th North Star, happens to be eno mous. It is really two stars bigger than our sun. It is far away that a fast spaceshi would take hundreds of years to reach it. Such big things are hard to understand. It is eve hard for our minds to grasp th big round size of our cart] Fhings get even harder whe we try to imagine how our globe spins around like a top So let's begin with somethini smaller, say about the size o MI eight-year-old boy. You are lust the one to start probing me big mystery. Find a spot o marker of some sort on the cei tag. The light fixture will d aicely. Now lift your arm and point to the place you chose on the ceiling. Keeping pomtins but shift your feet so that you him around, right where you stand. Keep pointing while you figure out what happened. Your chest turned around to face each side of the moon, one b me. So did your back. Bu while the rest. of you turned around, your finger kept point ing to the same old spot on She ceiling. Now you can change that slm pie little test into something big. Pretend that your bod] was the huge, spinning earth. I spins around its axis. The axis is a Jong line from pole to pole, straight through the mid- dle of the globe. One end of it b the North Pole, the other is the South Pole. The axis does not spin around with the rest 01 the globe. The North Pole keeps its finger pointed up to the same spot, where Polaris shines Bridge Results LaalK Wri- AMernoon D.B.C. DM. 1! 1. Mrs G.

(1972: By The Chicago Tribune) Test shmvs sex of the unborn ANN ARBOR. Mich. CReuter) at the University of Michigan medical centre have accurately determined the sex of 103 unborn children by a est which can be given as early as the 13th week of preg- nancy. The test is performed by drawing anmiotic fluid from the mother by inserting a needle mto the uterus under local anellietic. The fluid then is incubated or two to four weeks. At that time the researchers can ex- amine the chromosomal struc- ture of certain cells it contains and can detect whether the fe- tus is male or female. The studies have also opened be door for determining whe- ther certain genetic diseases, sudi as mongolism, are present in the unborn child. The work was reported by Drs. Roy Schmickel, Arthur Bloom, Bruce Work and Rob- ert Jaffe, representing the de- partments of pediatrics, human genetics and obstetrics and gy- necology. The doctors say that about 50 per cent of all mongoloids are born to women over 35 years ol age. Although the individual test costs about S100, the doc- tors believe it wmld be econo- mically desirable to test the high-risk mothers, on the as- sumption that families would elect to abort a mongoloid fe- tus rattier than provide the in- siirutionsj care required to maintain the child once It is born.

South now led a heart and West was In with the ice. The latter cashed two tpldes, but then was obliged to exit with the jack of dia- monds.

These stimulacts are useful to combat depression, but that action wears off in a few days after the medicine is taken. They are also useful in com- bating narootepsy, repeated sleeping at inappropriate times. Sometimes they are used to help people diet and hi treating hyperactive children and senil- ity. Amphetamine releases a type of adrenalin from the nerve endings and stimulates the brain. This causes the heart to beat faster and harder, ner vousness, irritability, insomni, and loss of appetite. Weight loss is common. Sc are delusions, hallucinations and even violence. the use of the drugs is discontinue! after prolonged use, severe de pressions can occur. Yes, some researchers state that prolonged use can cause brain damage. Brain cell dam age has been described in ani mal studies and in Japat men. Japan had an epidemic of overuse of "speed" after World War n, with serious ef- fects on the users. Loss o memory for recent events anc other evidences of abnormal thought process occurs. Some people begin taking these medicines to reduce, anc continue them long after any usefulness they might have hac in dieting. I am at a loss to tell you whaand might help.
