GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE Fresh information is intriguing, sets off a chain of speculation. Beware of presenting a half The Great Divide Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Larry Jackson, age 14, of Salt Lake City, Utah, for his question: What causes Hie Great Divide? A continental divide may be called a watershed. It is a subtle geographical feature that drains the runoff from pre- cipitation and launches young steams in opposite directions. North America's major water- shed is called the Great Divide, perhaps because it is long enough to extend from the northern Rockies down through Central America. It works with no effort at all. simply because water is obligated to flow down even the gentlest slope. K North America, like most continents, has an enormous central region of flat plains, with mountainous ridges on both sides, sloping down to major coastlines facing the oceans. A map based on alti- The summit of the Great Di- vide runs through Glacier Na- tional Park. At Cutback Pass, the runoff drains into three streams, flowing in different directions. Their headwaters are so close that a person can reach over and pour a pitcher of melted snow into each of them. The Great Divide runs north and south, separating the runoff to drain downhill in op- posite directions. As you would expect, the streams born in this watershed are led either eastward or westward. However, other Lips and dcwns along their courses may veer their channels In other directions. For example, those three neighboring streams bom in Cutback Pass have very different destinations. One iseis northward to empty its waters in Hudson Bay: another veers southward and finally tudes shows its" outstanding ups reaches tne GuU and downs in greens and browns and we can expect the main rivers to drain downhill from the slopes to the plains. So they do. But as a rule, the map reveals these geographical features only in a general way It fails to note that the entire land mass has long, though very gentle humps that tend to Kit portions of the continent in various directions. These ridges are the conti- nental divides that separate the streams and cause them to flow in opposite directions. Na- turally, these humps are on high ground. But as rule, their summits and slopes are very subtle and hard to survey. They are watershed regions where rains and melting snows feed streams starting out on tieir journeys downhill Vi the teas. One way to pinpoint such watershed is to trace a stream uphill to its source. When the headwaters of an- other nearby stream start to flow In the opposite direction, you have found the summit of a continental divide. The third runs westward and dumps its drainage into the Pacific Ocean. The streams di- vided by a watershed naturally gather others down the gentle slopes of the continent and usu- ally reach the seas as surging rivers. The Great Divide is on high ground, though it meanders around the toweling peaks. An- other divide runs east and west. It is just high enough to separate streams flowing in more or less north and south directions. The headwaters launched down the northern slopes may be veered to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, to Hud- son Bay or to the Arctic Ocean. Most of those guided down the opposite slopes run to join the mighty Mississippi on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. Questions asseo DT cMlfli en of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andj, P.O.

(1372: By The Chicago Tribune) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Hypertension is a symptom Dear Dr. Lamb Is hyper- tension and blood pressure the same thing? Is it a symp- tom or a disease? How high is too high? What could be the consequences of carrying a reading of 200-105 untreated for several months? Dear Reader Yes, hyper- tension and liigh blood pressure are the same thing.
