I Fun Ask Andy Today in history The greatest military force ever assembled in his- tory launched the invasion of Europe 29 years ago to- the Nor- mandy landings. Allied ar- mies smashed their way onto the beaches as para- troopers secured a grip fur- ther inland. The Allies' foct- hold was assured by the second day of the inxasion, giving them the necessary purchase to begin fighting through Nazi-occupied Eu- rope to the eventual de- struction of the German ar- mies. h e Trans-Canada Pipeline bill passed by the House of Commons. United Stales agreed to double military aid to Tin-key. States naval forces won the battle off J. A. H. HUNTER 1 ''Wnat a exclaimed Susan looking down at the lit- tei of books on the floor.

Blackout bulbs Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Kevin McKay, age 10, of Belling- ham, Washington, for his question: Why do light bulbs burn out? This may be hard to believe, but the problem is caused by zillions of traffic collisions in a fantastically busy bottle neck. It is hard to believe because the whole thing is on a mina- ture scale that is much, much too small for human eyes to behold. The colliding speeders are electrons. Electricity, as we know, is created by minuscule electrons. Its energy is created by zil- lions of them marching along in step, faster than fast. Nor- mally, shells or rings of high speed electrons swarm around the central nucleus of the aver- age atom. A generator or a battery can shake numbers of them loose and send them rac- ing in step through an elec- trical wire circuit. The electrical wires in your I home are part of an unbroken wire circuit that runs to and from a generator. Here and there we install outlets where v.e can draw helpings ol the electrical energy carried along in the big power circuit. Household appliances are de- signed to use the energy of speeding electrons to work toasters, steam irons and such. The most useful outlets turn night into day with electric lights. We can switch them on and off many times, but no electric bulb lasts forever. Sooner or later it burns out and leaves us in the dark. This is because those speeding elec- trons finally destroy the deli- cate wire filament inside the bulb. The metal base is screw- ed into a socket outlet. When switch en a reading lamp, i PKAIST HEALTH CARE CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) The president of the American Medical Association said Sun- day that health care in the j United States is "so superior in 1 quality" that any improvements i should come from individuals rather than the government, j Dr. Chai les Hoffman told a Um- jveisity of Cincinnati class of i riedical graduates that to argue j that the government should pick I up all the loose ends is "a fad.'' it connects to the electrical energy in the giant circuit. Streaming electrons zoom through the wires in the bulb. Two large prongs connect to the metal base and their tops are connected with a delicate coil of fine wire. There is room for the speeding electrons to travel through the prongs in comfort. But suddenly the traf- fic is forced helter skelter through the thin filament the top. This creates a bottl neck and a fantastic traffic jam. Billions of electrons bashj together and bounce apart, i These collisions create heat to make the filament white hot and glow with its bright electric light. But when metals get red hot, their atoms and molecules tend to separate and break apart. Some metals resist heat better than others. The fila- ment in most bulbs is heat re- sistant tungsten. But sooner or later the heat from colliding electrons breaks its atoms apart. Then the weary wire breaks and the electric circuit is broken. The light bulb is burned out and useless. s- It is hard to. imagine the speeds and numbers of minia- ture electrons in this fantastic traffic jam. To light an aver- age reading lamp, every sec- ond about three billion-billion electrons jog back and forth sixty times. In the crowded bottleneck, billions of them bash and bounce apart, creat- ing the heat that makes the filament glow. Oxygen would make the filament burn fast- er. So the wires are sealed in an airtight bulb to help the delicate wire to last as long as possible. Questions asKed by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.
