The element carbon occurs in several different forms called isotopes. One of these isotopes can be used to reveal the age of an old bone or an ancient log. It works because it happens to be radioactive and all radioactive substances decay at a steady, un- changeable rate: All living cells contain car- bon, and the carbon remains when long dead plants and animals become fossilized. operation or agreement in -Most of 'his material is or- today's ventures.

The son Montreal shoemaker, he was ordained in. 1907 and taught theology at University of Ottawa before being named the first bishop of Gravelbourg, Sask., in 1930 and archbishop of Quebec the following year. In 1933 he became the fourth Canadian to be appointed to the Sacred College. 1863 British Prime Minister David Lloyd George was born. 1876 Author Victor Hugo was elected to the French Senate. 1919 Pianist fgnace Jan Paderewski was elected presi- dent of Poland. 1945 Warsaw was liberated from the Nazis by Polish and Russian troops. Howev.er, in every sample of ordinary carbon there are a few isotope atoms. One of the heavier isotopes is carbon 14, which loses its extra weight by radioactive decay. There is one of these radiocarbon atoms among every trillion atoms of ordinary carbon atoms. While they live; plants and animals consume a one in a trillion ratio of radiocarbon, along with ordinary carbon. When they die, the intake stops, but the radiocarbon continues to decay at a precise rate. During the first years, exactly half of the remaining quota disappears, and so on. The hall life of radiocarbon is years during which time half of any sample decays. Naturally, this changes the one in a trillion ratio of radiocarbon and ordinary carbon. This gives the key to the carbon dating of fossils. For example, suppose archeologists find fossil bones and logs in an ancient camp- site. They test to find the ratio of ordinary carbon to radiocarbon. Let's suppose that there is one radiocarbon atom per two trillion ordinary carbon atoms. This .Would mean that half the original radiocarbon has decayed, which must have taken years. the campsite fossils date back years. Naturally, most samples in- volve complicated fractions of the half life period. Wha't's more, after years, only a part of the original radiocarbon remains! This tiny quota is too hard to Hi AND LOIS detect, which is why carbon cannot help to date fossils older than half a million years or so. nktd by chil- dren of Herald thould be milled to Andy, P.O. .Box. 765, Huntington Bitach, California 92648.

Pass 2 4 Pass How many trump tricks do you think West can take at a contract of two spades? perhaps two? Holland's leading bridge journalist, Herman Filarski, reports that when this hand was played at a recent tourna- ment, West succeeded in scoring all three of his trumps! After North's takeout double, South elected to bid spades first, keeping his heart suit in reserve in case his opponents competed further in the minor suits. Like many best-laid plans, this one went astray when North raised to two spades, so the 4-4 heart fit was LI'L ABNFR missed. West led the king of dia- monds and, when East sig- nalled encouragement with the nine, continued with the seven to his partner's ace. East shifted to a low heart, and the ten was allowed to win. West continued with the king of hearts to dum- my's ace. Entries to declarer's hand were at a premium, so he de- cided to force an entry with the queen of spades. To accomplish this, South led the jack of spades from dum- my.-West won the king and returned a diamond. Since ruffing with dummy's low trump would again leave de- clarer without an entry to his hand, South elected to ruff with dummy's ace. Now he led the four of spades from the table and boldly finessed his nine. West's ten won his side's second trump trick, and when he played ,1 fourth round of diamonds, East ruffed with the eight of trumps and declarer finally got to his hand by over- ruffing with the queen. Un- fortunately, this promoted West's seven for the de- fenders' third trump trick, all won by West! The success of the club finesse came as a small con- solation to declarer. He had three truiiip Iricks, two diamonds and a for down one, when most of the other North-South pairs were making a part-score contract in hearts. Dear Dr. Lamb More than a year ago I suffered a massive stroke and heart at- tack. Today I ani still paralyz- ed on my left side. My left arm and left leg refuse to function so f cannot walk and cannot bend my elbow. I take blood tfiinner pills for my heart and all manner of vitamins which are to heal my joints from the inside out. Can you suggest any other remedies to rid me of my paralysis? Would liniments and salves help to limber my joints? Dear Reader ft would certainly be wonderful if there were a solve the type of problem you have. When a stroke causes paralysis it means that the brain cells that controlled the movement have been damag- ed or destroyed. The leg moves when you want it to move because of a complex electrical circuit. The nerve to and from the muscles in your legs all plug into a central switchboard in the brain. When you literally burn out the connections in the switchboard the circuit no longer works. Those connec- tions in the switchboard are vital brain cells involved in the movements. Brain cells, cannot regenerate. A cut nerve in the arm can grow with time but cells in the brain cannot be replaced. There is some en- couraging work demonstrating the ability of other brain cells to take over the switchboard function. In other the cells that used to handle just the infor- mation from the arm may be able to also handle the infor- mation from the left leg. In these instances a return to function is possible. We can't do ihis jet in humans. The nearest thing to that being done is re-educating people io speak when they have lost their speech from a stroke. The brain literally develops a new speech center with time, patience and much practice. Your story illustrates why strokes must be prevented, if at all possible. The same dis- ease that causes heart attacks also causes strokes. No one wants to be disabled, as you know. Various exercises, heat and physical therapy can do a lot to prevent further loss of func- tion in some cases after a stroke. These methods can also help some in learning to use new muscles to improve -body function. But these treatments can't replace the damaged brain cells Salves and liniments may make your muscles feel better hut don't expect them to solve your basic problem. The vitamins may be helpful.to maintain good nutrition ;for you, but they" won't do anything for the damaged brain cells that control your arm and leg either. Incidentally, in some strokes people, have tem- porary paralysis that clears as the initial swelling of the damaged brain cells dis- appear and the 'function of the remaining live cells is returned. So, no one should despair about a stroke until after a period of time has lapsed to permit full recovery. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this news- paper, P.O.
