Whatever help you get now should be taken at face Why geysers are hot Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book- Encyclopedia to Randy Arm- strong, age of Galesburg, Illinois', for his question: Why is water from a geyser hot? The frothy fountain from a geyser i s mostly gaseous steam. It reached the boiling point of water deep in the earth's crust. Down there, the geyser has a special plumbing system with a durable furnace to supply the heat energy for the spectacular operation. The true geysers of the world occur in only three major regions and their locations reveal how the earth creates them. Most of the world's geysers are located in Iceland, New Zealand and in North Amer- ica's Yellowstone N a t i o nal Park. These are regions of re- cent volcanic activity associat- ed with the formation of new crustal layers. Under normal conditions, pressure and heat increase with, depth and crustal layers three miles below the surface are hot enough to boil water. Under volcanic condi- tions, friction from crustal un- rest creates enough heat to melt buried minerals into pools of molten magma. This enormous heat energy is capped below massive layers of cool solid rocks until cracks occur in the solid surface. Then the pressure is released and the buried superheated magma erupts. It spews fumes and va- rious gases into the air and boiling minerals in flows of lava. Sometimes rivers of lava reach the surface. It may in- trude through underground crustal layers, or get buried below landslides. When this hot volcanic ma- terial is buried, it tends to re- tain its heat energy for cen- turies. However, this gradually escapes to the surface, cre- ating hot mineral springs and bubbling mud pots, smokey fu- maroles and gushing geysers. These geological wonders thai occur in fields of fairly recenl volcanic activity are powerec by deeply buried volcanic heat energy, carried up by rising gases. A geyser requires an under- ground plumbing system with crooked pipes and perhaps a buried cauldron. These cavities fill with water. Some is seep- ing ground water and some may be created from oxygen ant hydrogen gases by the trappec volcanic energy. The captured water is heated by pressure from above and by volcanic energy trapped in deen crusta layers. Normally, boiling water rises in convection currents and con- verts to steam. A geyser's crooked plumbing prevents nor- mal convection and keeps the superheated water under pres- sure until the surface boils over. This releases pressure on he superheated water below, a flash, some of it converts into steam and the geyser erupts. Meantime the crooked plumbing system refills with vater and the trapped vol- canic heat energy prepares it for the next frothy eruption. Fiery volcanoes also have beneficial features. Their por- ous lava rocks enrich the soil md plants use their erupted carbon dioxide to make oxygen. Fields of recent volcanic ac- tivity hold enormous supplies of geothermal energy. In the fu- :ure, we may see fewer gey- iers and fumaroles because Jieir energy can be used to generate non-polluting electric power. We expect the reduction of pollution to require sacri- fiMS but not Old Faithful! This super geyser is safely pro- tected forever in National Park. Yellowstone Andy sends a World Book Atlas to David Stefanski, age 11, of Independence, Ohio, for his question: How long do goldfish live? Goldfish are glamorous mem bers of the grubby carp family The rather sluggish carp have a reputation for living a very long time. Some people claim that their life spans are long er than those of any other fishes, though nobody knows this for sure. At any rate, since goldfish qualify as true carp we can expect them to live to a ripe old age. Barring accidents and neglect, they do, indeed outlive most other fishes o their size. The ordinary goldfish thai live in outdoor ponds, more or less in the wild state, often live 15 years or more. The average goldfish in the average home aquarium has a life expectancy of only about five years. Dedi cated hobbyists, however, trea sure about 20 fancy goldfish strains. One of their favorite, is the handsome golden carp This durable creature has been known to live more than 3 years. As a rule, he enjoys his long life in the freedom of a well-tended outdoor pool, where everything is arranged for hi good health and personal con venience.

He put me on a fat- tree diet, no alcohol and light work, no lifting. I am sticking to this advice, but I still don't have a lot of energy and I wonder if you could advise me if there are any vitamins or diets that could help? Is there any operation that will help? Dear Reader Lack of en- ergy or fatigue is common to people with chronic liver di- sease. I am sure that the vita- min B complex group, taken daily, would certainly not harm you and might be beneficial. Many patients with long-stand- ing liver disease are given supplementary vitamins and the B complex groups are the long- most important ones. Some patients with standing liver disease also have anemia, which may con- tribute to their sense of fa- tigue, and, of course, a person with liver disease can have an- emia because of iron deficiency or any of the other factors that may cause anemia as well. A careful and thorough examina- tion is necessary, if an ane- mia is present, to unmask any other factors besides the liver disease that might be contribut- ing to the problem. It would be particularly important to treat Hie anemia if that were true. From what you have told me, it sounds like you have had some very good advice. Cer- tainly you should avoid alcohol in all forms, particularly if you still have some evidence of ac- tive liver disease, which your letter suggests is the case. heut-germ oil? What is it good for? I understand that it has no special dietary claims. Dear Reader Wheat-germ oil is taken from the growth pail of the wheat seed. It is mostly a polyunsaturated oil and contains numerous vita- mins, including the vitamin B complex group and yitunin E. It is a particularly rich source tor vitamin E. Individuals who believe that large amounts of viatmin E are useful for their health often use oil. Since vitamin E is abundant in many food substances, this spe- cial effort is probably not neces- sary. Although there have been some i enthusiastic claims for vitamin E, there is no evidence at this time that the admini- stration of large doses of vita- min E to man has any effect whatsoever. In rats (fortunate- ly, not in man) it can improve fertility. For this reason, it was originally called the fertility vitamin, Dear Dr, Lamb I can't un- derstand all the p r e a c h ing about cigarettes and cigarette smoke. My husband smoked cigarettes for years until I talked him into smoking a pipe. He smokes constantly and it doesn't seem to affect him but I coughed all last winter. Talk about pollution, I breathe it all day. You would think it was a real healthy habit, smoking a pipe. UTiat do you think? Dear Reader I think it is the lesser of the two evils in most instances but certainly not beneficial for the health.

LETHBRIDGE NAME Little benefit for coiisiuners TORONTO (CP) The United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers Union said today consumers will receive little benefit from the removal of the 15-per-cent excise duty on television sets, radios and sterso sets. The union said in a press release that manufac- turers of such home entertain- ment products appear to have no intention of passing on to the consumer the full benefit of the saving. Removal of the excise duty on such products was announced by Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son in the recent federal budget. The union said it has sent a telegram to Mr. Benson and Ron Bosford, federal minister of consumer and corporate affairs, noting there is no obstacle to price manipulation on the part of manufacturers.
