(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) TUMBLEWEEDS-By TOM K. RYAN I 60 FORTH TO PRINK PEEPO'THE HEW LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. This 'health' diet causes malnutrition Atomic clock Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Julie Metz, age 12, of Merrillville, Indi- ana, for her question: What runs an atomic clock? One would expect an atomic clock to be run by atoms. And so it is. However, to perform their duties, these tiny talent- ed timekeepers need held from the ingenious mind of man. The atom is invisibly small, yet sci- entists have figured out its structure, its built in ener- gies and how various forms of outside energy cause it to change. Then, certain of these reactions were computed in precise equations and Ihis data used to build precise atomic clocks. Nature supplied us with many clocks to mark the passage of time. In the great dome of the sky, moving heavenly bodies point out the passing moments in step with the earth's daily rotation. This celestial clock was used in prehistoric times. Through the centuries, inven- tors created clocks with pen- dulums, wheels and a multi- tude of other devices to mark the passage of time. But none of these can compare with the precise time keeping of our modern atomic clocks. In a rough and ready fashion, this principle can be compared with sound waves created by a vibrating tuning fork. Atoms in certain sub- stances also can be made to vibrate with a precision tuning fork. Vibrations are frequen- cies that jog at so many cycles per second. In atomic clocks, particles of quartz with ammo- nia or cesium arc set to vi- brate at precise numbers per billionth part of a second. These frequencies are in megacycles. The energy that runs an ato- mic clock is emitted by quartz sstead, of ammonia. Its atoms can be adjusted to vibrate with even finer precision. The quartz cesium clock is accurate to one in 10 billion parts and mis- places no more than one sec- ond in years. The first workable atomic clock was made by American scientists at the National Bu- reau of Standards and com- pleted in 1949. At that time, this quartz ammonia clock was in a class by itself. But the natural desire to make a good thing better resulted hi the quartz cesium clock of t the 1960s. Atomic clocks of this sort are used for global time signals and naturally much too costly and complicated for home use. million.

(CP) _ The Province says heroin trafficking rales as one of British Colum- bia's top 10 industries with an- nual sales estimated at S160 mil- lion. The newspaper said street rected a small sealed chamber of ammonia gas. The ammonia molecule happens to be a pyramid with a triangle base of three hydrogen atoms and a nitrogen atom at the top. When the quartz beam is set at megacycles, it stimulates the nitrogen atom to jog adly, though precise- ly, back and forth between the triangle of hydrogen atoms. The clock is fitted with super- fine equipment to receive these fast, accurate vibrations. The data is used to record (he pas- sage of time in split seconds with almost perfect accuracy.

Of the addicts, about are known to be "older1 generation" addicts, using be- tween five and eight capsules of heroin a day. Using the five-cap figure, these addicts consume about caps a day.

The Dallas Aces pulled comfort- ably away in the concluding deals of the 128 board match after the French had nar- rowed the gap on several occasions. One of the deals where France gained n siz- able swing is presented today. The bidding presented in the above diagram took place at the table where the French were seated Norlh and South. North's jump shift response of three clubs is well below the 19 point standard gener- ally advocated. Alter South rcbid three spndes, North might have been better ad- vised merely to rcbid hir clubs. Giving a soadc raise ai this point-could only servj further inflame his partner. South's bid of five diamonds was a fake cue bid designed to throw the opponents off tha track at the opening gun. North retreated to his seven card suit by bidding six clubs aad South carried on to slam ufspades, closing the auction. West was not to be taken in by South's fake bid in dia- monds, and he opened the queen of that suit. East signalled encouragement with the seven after South played dummy's ace. Prospects ap- peared to be virtually non-ex- istent for declarer. The open- ing lead had knocked out the side entry to North's club suit, so that the only legiti- mate way to run the clubs was to find the club king singly guarded in the West hand. This was a remote possibility, but declarer had no other recourse available. Sou'h proceeded to play top three spades to dravir trump and then he led tha seven of clubs. West followed with the six, (lie ten was alayed from dummy, and East played the deuce. The ace of clubs was cashed next and when West produced the. ting, South was home. Three hearts and one diamond were discarded on Ihe established clubs and declarer had all Ihe ricks.
