RYAN Eyesore noted COALDALE (HNS) Some- thing should be done with the "unsightly" unused business buildings on main street here, says the economic development commission and town council. The commission conducted a survey in town and district re- cently. The initial finding was that the citizens were "appalled" at the appearance of the town's vacant businesses. Frog's croak Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Booh Encyclopedia to Venus Mont- gomery, age 11, of San Fran- cisco, California, for her ques- tion: How does a frog croak? About 100 assorted frogs and toads enjoy life in North Ameri- ca. Each species croaks his own special note, though it takes an expert to distinguish them all. Most of us are con- tent to enjoy their songs blend- Finger cracking noise mystery cleared up LEEDS, England (AP) Every wonder what causes the noise when people crack their knuckles? Bubbles. Three doctors at Leeds Uni- versity reported here this sol- ution to a minor mystery of medicine. They said the audible snap- ping or cracking of finger joints is caused by the sud- den formation and collapse of gas bubbles in the joint spaces. Writing in the J971 edition of Annals of Rheumatic Dis- eases, the doctors said they took high-speed x-ray films while volunteers had their fingers slowly stretched in a machine. Out of 17 persons tested, they said, only five produced cracking noises. As their fin- gers bones gradually sepa- rated, a gas bubble formed to fill the cavity, and then burst audibly. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES II. COHEN IS inn Br chlein Trittm Neither vulnerable. West deals. NORTH A .15. WQ98S4 0 J73 A103 WEST WAG32 OQ54 EAST OK2 SOUTH AKQ3 Sooth 1 NT 3 NT 0 A 10986 The bidding: West North East Pass Pass 1 A Pass 2 NT Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Eight of A Altho South concentrated his attentions on the wrong suit in attempting to develop June tricks, at three no trump lie nevertheless emerged triumphant when West failed to extend a heloing hand in developing his partner's spade suit. South overcalled E a s t 's third seat opening bid of one spade with one no trump for which he had the required sixteen points. When North extended an invitation to game, holding eight points, Soulh persisted to three no tramp despite his minimum hish card holding because he had two spade stoppers plus an establishable five card suit. West opened the eight of spades, the five was played from dummy and East covered with the nine, dis- lodging declarer's queen. Holding two stoppers In spades and three tricks in clubs, it appears that dia- monds offers the best pos- sibility for developing four additional tricks, but South chose to go after the heart suit, in the hope that he could put something over on the defense. Tbj ten of hearts was led at trick two and unwary West chose to follow suit with the three. East won the trick with the king and cleared the spades by playing the ace and another ten. South was in and he continued with the jack of hearts, which West ducked again as North overtook with the queen. Dummy led the nine of hearts. West finally played the ace and attempted to reach his partner in dia- monds, but South topped East's king with the ace and cashed out his winners. In all, he took three clubs, one diamond, three hearts and two spades. Had West put up the ace of hearts when the ten was led at trick he should would have been able to clear the spade suit while East retained the king of hearts as entry. The defense would have taken four spades and two hearts to administer a two trick defeat to South. Declarer could have as- sured the. success of his contract by going after the appears to be a better course since East [as the opening bidder] might have held both the ace and king of hearts. Dummy is entered at trick two with the ace of clubs and the jack of diamonds is led. Whether or not East covers with the- king, the defense is limited to one tiick in diamonds and South establishes Bur tricks for himself while he still retains second stopper in spades, ed together in their famous croaking choruses. The froggy glee clubs are scheduled to per- form on mild spring evenings, usually in quiet locations around marshy ponds or streams. Their assorted voices may sound like croaks to our ears. But to the frogs and toads they are sweet serenades. The pretty little spring peeper pipes his high notes very early in the spring. Later, other frogs frld different notes- Fin- ally the big fat bullfrog com- pletes the chorus with his deep bass notes that seem to come from way down in his boots. The peeper utters his shrill so- prano pe-ep four times, then pauses and repeals the sam song. Various tenors and ba tones swell the chorus and fro time to time the bullfrog ad his jug-o-rum note may loud enough to be heard half mile away. The notes may be differe but all of them are love song intended to enchant lady fro in the vicinity. And all fro create their serenading mus in the same way. Of all thing every frog performs his markable vocal activities wi his mouth closed. This is a solutely necessary to the oper tion. We vocalize by sending a over the vocal cords as breathe out and open mouths to send forth the sound The frog is not speechless wi his mouth closed because h pumps the same breath of a back and forth between h lungs and his croaking appara tus. Croaking calls for seriou concentration and maximum e fort. The frog squats in a com fortable position and usuall rears back on his haunches. H takes a breath, then closes hi mouth and nostrils. Normall the air passes down the esoph gus tube straight to the lungs But when he croaks it is side- tracked from the esophagu through a chamber called th pharynx. The door to the pha: ynx is tile larynx, where tw bands of elastic tissue form th vocal cords. As the air is pump TUESDAY, AUG. 3 ed back and forth, these elasti bands vibrate and add those certain sounds. The vibrating air is forced up into the mouti cavity, then forward to fill the vocal sac. There the froggy note is amplified to croaking proper lions. No doubt you have that the frog has loose skin sagging under his wide chin Actually this is his vocal sac When he croaks, the empty bag inflates like a balloon fit to buist- This resonant chambei amplifies the high, medium or low note that each type of frog creates with the vibrating cords in his voice box. He vigorously pumps a breath of air back and forth to create each series ol croaks. Then he pauses to breathe out and fill up again to repeat his serendade. Frogs hear more or less as we do. The male frog is too busy concentrating to chase after a lady friend, but she knows that his love song is meant to guide her to where he waits, doing his very best to attract her atten- tion. And if she happens to lie ready to deposit her eggs, she selects the most charming croaker and hops over in his direction..

More aldermen dea mulled at Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) City ouncil must consider an in- crease in the number of alder- men during its next term in of- ce. Mayor Ivor Dent said ere. He was commenting on May- r Rod Sykes' recent unsuccess- ul attempt to increase the umber of Calgary aldermen to 8 from 12. "I wouldn't want to just say uddenly 'yes, that's what we rant to but during the ext term of office, ttiis is omething city council has hi 3ok at." Mayor Dent rejected the idea full-time aldermen to rease the effectiveness of ouncil. He also could not ac- ept the cabinet system sug- ested by Aid. Jim Bateman, iuch would .employ four alder- en full-time. "The reason people want me aldermen is because they ant to or have Ilic feeling ey want to get into admin- ration." "My liclief is that council is board of directors. No cor- tation tries to make its di- clors into full-time adminis- itors." he said. -IM EVEUTHE. MEEKEST OF S. J -THEY'RE VOR'N LOOKS UNCOWTABLE.
