JULY 17 Your birthday today: Per- Bonal stability is your id this year. If you already hav it, life is serene and joyful Students design r pollution-free car The first cells Andy sends a complete 20- Tolume set of the Merit Stu- denU Encyclopedia to Daniel LeVan, age 10, of Altertown, Pennsylvania, for his ques- tion: How does (he para- mecium divide? The paramecium, of course, Is a protozoan one of those miraculous midgets made from only one living cell. Most tingle-celled animals resemble soft little blobs of jelly. The paramecium is somwehat more complicated. For one thing, It has a stiffer outer covering which gives It a permanent shape. It looks like a micro- tcopic slipper and unlike most protozoans, it has a front and rear end. It also has unusual methods of simple cell division. Most living cells have only one nucleus, the small unit that governs all the miraculous pro- cesses of life. The parameci- um's one and only cell has two nuclei. Nobody knows exactly why this is so. But these nuclei somewhat different and seem to divide the duties of an average nucleus between them. When other protoazoans di- vide, they form duplicate copies of the single nucleus, one copy for each new cell. When the paramecium divides, both nu- cell form duplicate copies, they grow longer and pull apart as the cell srtetches and separ- ates. Each half becomes a new cell with copies' of the original nuclei. If a colony of paramecia gets plenty of food, their cells divide two or three times a day and the population explodes at a fantastic rate. The paramecium, the amoeba and other protozoans multiply by dividing their single cells Into pairs of identical twin cells. The key to success is In the nuclei that govern the com- plex activities of life. They con- tain the instructions that the cells need to carry on their duties and survive. These blue- prints are DNA chemicals, wound in tight strands inside the nucleus of every cell. When cell division begins, each of these strands makes a copy of itself and separates lenghtwise down the middle. In the paramecium, the strands in both nuclei create duplicates. The copies move to opposite ends of the cell and the cell begins to pinch a waist in the middle, The waist gets thinner and finally breaks. The paramecium is now two para- mecia, each with a duplicate of wto slightly different nuclei. The process of cell division may take an hour or so and if food is plentiful, the twins soon grow to normal size. Sometimes paramecia multi- ply by a sort of mating process. Two cells come together and thedr larger nuclei break apart. Their smaller nuclei divide twice, but only one copy sur- vives in each cell. It divides, and the two cells exchange copies. The two cells then sep- arate and each divides into a set of quadruplets. This method of reporudction is not simple cell division because the two original cells exchange their basic DNA material.

(CP) After a year of designing, assembling and tinkering, and projected costs of about a pound, battery-powered mini- car produced by university stu- dents here is ready to roll. The project, planned as an an- swer to traffic pollution and congestion, is a joint venture by students of the University of Western Ontario faculty of engi- neering and Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technoligy. Dave Jacques, a machinist from Thamesford, Ont., and the only non-student on the project, said in a recent interview that most of the problems have been worked out and that the car should be ready for preliminary trials in Toronto July 22. He said the chassis is a hy- brid incorporating a Volkswa- gen front suspension, a Datsun rear suspension and an original frame designed and built at the university. An electirc motor over the front wheels drives a variable- output hydraulic pump which sends hydraulic fluid through hoses, turning a hydraulic motor in the rear of the car. The motor powers rear wheels. The power source of the motor is a series of batteries, the number depending on how far one wants to go and what type of batteries are used. Tie present setup uses 10 lead-cobalt auto-sized batteries. Work on the body is about three weeks behind the chassis construction but should be ready for tests at the University of Toronto, said Keith Zere- becki, a 24-year-old mechanical engineering graduate student and project head. He said the car is being pre- pared for the Urban Vehicle De- sign Competition to be held Aug. 7 to 13 at the General Mo- tors proving grounds in Warren, Mich. The competition Is this year's version of the Clean-Air Car Race held in 1970 between Cam- bridge, Mass., and Pasadena, Calif. Mr. Zerebecki said the hy- draulic drive used on the elec- tric car can be used so effec- tively for breaking that a "free-wheeling" feature had lo be designed to keep the car from making instant stops when- the driver's foot was taken off the accelerator. Projected range of the 20-hor- sepower car with a 120-volt bat- tery pack is 50 to 75 miles at speeds between 30 and 50 miles an hour. The car is designed to accelerate from to 45 m.p.h. in 15 seconds, slightly slower than conventional compact cars on the market now. The University of Western On- tario, Fanshawe College, the federal transport department and private industries put up the money for the project. Student loan program jeopardized by deadbeats REGINA CP) The depart- ment of education has turned an estimated worth of outstanding student loan ac- counts over to a collection agency. Not enough evidence for charges VANCOUVER (CP) Attor- ney General Les Peterson has been told there is insufficient evidence to warrant the laying of criminal charges over a demonstration in New West- minister last month against members of the provincial cab- inet. Vancouver lawyer Sam Toy, appointed special prosecutor after New Westminster police said charges were likely, says he hnd reported to Mr. Peter- son that there Is not enough evidence. Mr Toy said he made the recommendation regarding Hie conduct of the crowd after an extensive examination of re- ports, photographs taken at the scene and potential wit- nesses. "Although it was apparent there hnd been ncls of violence committed by some members of the crowd there was not suf- ficient evidence in my opinion to warrant the laying or crimi- nal ho milled. The demonstration, Juno 7, cnme ns the provincial cabinet noarcd the end of a provincial tour. The crowd, nlwut 500, was reported to Iw made up largely of construction work- ers demonstrating ngninst gov- ernment policy In their dispute with contractors.

Rynn KNEW YOU'P i COME CRAWUNG- PACK' LAUNCH BLONDIE-By Chic Young IF YOD WAD KEPT ON SLEEPING, YOU HAVE HEARD IT BEETLE BAILEY-By Mort Walker The move follows a review of unpaid accounts which began last winter. Education Minister Gordon MacMurchy said the decision to turn over the ac- counts was made following ex- pansion of the provincial stu- dent loan program. Details of the unpaid ac- counts are scarce. Department officials are unsure exactly how many accounts are involved I and the figure of is considered to be only a rough estimate. It is believed some of fho accounts date back to the early 1960s. From now on, said Mr. Mac- Murchy, all accounts unpaid for more than 90 days without ex- planation will be sent lo the collection agency. "We cannot operate a sourd loan program if our collection- policy is disregarded by the students who have been as- sisted." The education minister said many of the accounts were long overdue and correspon- dence from department of- ficials to the borrowers, had gone unheeded. Borrowers will be extended every possible courtesy, Mr. MacMurchy said. But action would have to bo taken in fu- ture on long overdue accounts. Probe, alleged police, payoffs VANCOUVER (CP) Police CliicI John It. Fisk has ordered an investigation into allegations thnt senior police officers arc taking payoffs. The allegations were made by an unidentified, self-proclaimed prostitute during an interview recently on the CHAN televi- sion program. News Hour. WEU-, rr wiu.
