CANCER (June 21 July 22 In general, let well enoug Causa of erosion Andy sends a complete 20- TOlmne set of Uie World Book Encyclopedia to Adrian Hob- an, age 12, of San Francisco, California, for his question: What causes erosion? Erosion covers the beaches with land and changes the shapes of the shorelines. It digs 'deep valleys and floods the plains with soggy mud. It chews steep canyons in the stapes and wears down the loft- iest mountains. It shifts vasl masses of desert sand and molds the mesas. Natural ero- sion is a planetary project that continually remodels the wrink- led ups and downs of the earth's surface. Enormous plan- etary forces are needed to cause it and keep it going, This non-stop planetary opera tion occurs where the earth's is exposed to the weath- try atmosphere and the rest- less oceans. In a general way, it chews up hard crustal rock and shifts countless tons of loose debris from place la place. Plants cannot live in bare, hard bedrock and their roots hold onto their thin layers of surface soil. People cause erosion when they cut down forests and strip the grassy plains, exposing the loose soil to the winds and water. Modern farmers are teaming ways to protect their fields from such disasters. Naturally, we must do our best to stop the erosions of our fertile farmlands. But nobody ecu (top the vast planetary sys- tem of erosion. Nobody- really wants to, because this is how the r hanging earth renews It- self and stays forever young. Erosion chomps up tough rodu and mixes them with or- ganic material to build new (oils. It shifts mountains of dirt, 10 that barren regions have a chance to thrive and weary old places have a chance to rest. This patient erosion is 1 community project on a grand scale. It is caused by gravity and running rivers, winds and rains, the seasonal sun and even the tidal mooi Gravity strives to slide loos material down the slopes. Bain water seeps into porous rod and runs downhill to the sea Moving water dissolves sot minerals, erodes hard rock and sweeps along muddy gr vel as it dashes to the base the slopes. There gravity i laxes its pull. The steams slo down and dump their erodet loot on the plains. The changing seasons als help to crack the tough peak, into movesble pieces. H a r rocks expand and contract wi1 summer heat and winter coll Rains and melting snows fill the fractures. The water washes out the rocky pockets and th frost freezes it solid. The jagged ice expands and digs the crack deeper. The spring stream carry off the loose fragments as they dash down the slopes Sometimes the mountains ar shaken by storms and earth quakes. Weakened pinnacles use their balance and gravity winp masses of eroded mater al plummeting down in thun dering landslides. Most, but not all, erosion is caused by the team of gravity, weather running water. In the deserts, where wate s scarce, the work of erosion s done by blusterin_ breezes. They hurl gritty grain! of sand in the faces of balances it causes are similar to ppendicitis, typically right low abdominal pain. There may ven be a slight elevation of wdy temperature and usuall; increase in the number o white blood cells, as seen in infections or appendicitis. Gas- eous distention and even intes- 1 n a 1 obstruction can occur There1 are a number of compli cations that are sometimes seen with the disease. Most people lose their appe- te and may lose weight. Diar- ies may also be a symptom, he disease may occur In at- cks, with intervals of relative eedorn from pain in between. The cause of the disease is ot known and there is no satis- actory treatment. Cortisone oes help to eliminate the in' animation some times, but it Iso can cause complications, high protein diet with suffi- cient calories to prevent undue eight loss is important. Some oods are prone to cause diffi- ulty in some people. Usually mlik causes symptoms and ac- vates the inflammation. You Mother needed or test-tube tables test LONDON CKeuler) A lead- g British researcher on test- ube babies was reported today saying he is ready to go lead with implanting a human mbryo in a he ceds is a suitable mother. Dr. Douglas Bevis, who has irried out research at the Jes- Hospital in Sheffield, north- England, is one of several rilish doctors working on the roblems of test-tube babies.

In some instances surgery is necessary and some patients have remarkably good health thereafter, Not infrequently the diagnosis is first made when an operation is being done for sus- pected appendicitis. Doctors let province collect bills TORONTO (CP) Most On- tario doctors have chosen to lei the provincial government as their bill collector in ex- change for 10 per cent of their fee schedule. An official of the Ontario Health Services Insurance Plan said here that only 10 per cent of the province's doctors elected to withdraw [rom OHSTP Nov. 1, when par- ticipating doctors were required a settle for 90 per cent of the Ontario Medical Association's Fee schedule as full payment. Prior to that date, the doctors were permitted to bill a patient separately for the 10 per cent of their fee not covered by OHSIP payments. Ron Brownridge .information officer of the OMA, which had advised doctors to stay out of the plan and bill their patients directly, said today he is not surprised by their decision. He predicted that the major- ty will stay in OHSIP as long as the government does not at- tempt to bring in unreasonable controls or decrease the amount of its payments. Health officials had feared earlier that a large number of lectors would withdraw from OHSIP drastically increasing ita administrative costs.
