Rvon Ask Andy Saturn's rings Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Johnny Arnold, age 9, of Darlington, South Carolina, for his ques- tion: Do they know why Saturn has rings? Our eyes cannot behold tne_ beauty of Saturn's rings with- out a magnifier. The first person who saw them was the great Italian astronomer, Gali- leo. He used a home made be- ginner type telescope. This more than 360 years ago. Many astronomers have tried .0 figure how those bright gold- en rings were formed. They made several good suggestions but nobody knew for sure. Now someone has put forth a sur- prising, brand new suggestion. Someday soon, a Mariner- type spacecraft will survey faraway Saturn and relay close-1 up information back to cur- ious-minded people on the the mighty pull of the earth's gravity. The same holds true for the moons of Saturn. We know that the big planet holds ten orbiting satellite moons. Powerful telescopes were needed to detect the small ones and there may be oth- TrflS TOWN NEEPS A NEW LOOK' MEN, 6RIMY6ULCH IS AN ABOMINATION ANC? A PIS6KACE. ers. BlONDlE-By Chic Young Many astronomen suspected that long ago a satellite came too close to its giant parent planet. And the gravity of mighty Saturn shattered it to pieces. It was thought that the rings were formed by thei fragments, still orbiting around, above the planet's wide equator. Someone deduced that the fragments must be finer- tban-fine particles, possi b 1 y dust and icy crystals of frozen gases. But recently radar detectors! have revealed that at least' some of the ring particles are sizeable chunks, perhaps like stonss and boulders. And right after this, a Russian astrononv suggested that the rings may be an accidentally shatter without eggs or fats. artificial sweetener.

Dear Reader You can use most commercial pahcake mixes or almost any standard recipe, just disregard the di- rections to add an egg or to add shortening or oil. They will turn out fine. The next question then is what to put on the pancakes. If you are trying to avoid fat intake you can use non-fat dry milk powder. Mix it extra rich until it's thick enough to pass for cream. To this you can add sugar to taste and cinnamon if you like, for a spread on top of the pancakes. This way you can serve pancakes which con- tain almost no fat. This does not mean that they won't have cal- ories. If your daughter needs to lose weight, pancakes of any type may not be the best idea Dear Dr. Lamb In one of your columns you commented "low blood sugar and many other problems are often re- lated to living habits, particul- arly diet, and can frequently be corrected." This seems to isjply that hypoglycemia is re- versible. I was under the im- pression that it was the reverse of diabetes, and not correctable or reversible. Can you give me some sug- gestions on correct living hab- its and diet to correct low blood sugar condition? Dear Reader common low blood sugar problems are reversible. They are not at all the opposite of diabetes. The only analogy you can draw here Is that in low blood sugar there is a low blood glucose level, whereas in untreated diabetes the blood glucose level is high. The mechanisms involved are quite different. There are many causes for low blood sugar, including a tumor of the pancreas, involv- ing the tissues that produce in- sulin. This rare form of low blood sugar might really be considered as the opposite of diabetes. It can be cured by removing the tumor. Most peo- ple who have low blood sugar do not have a tumor of the pancreas but have a function- al problem related to eating too many sweets. Ths most satisfactory diet ap- proach is to eliminate sweets, desserts, starches and shift the emphasis to fresh vegetables, foods with bulk and foods rich in protein. The latter category obviously includes the meats, fish and poultry. Drinks such as hot coffee containing sugar, or sweetened soft drinks are a real no-no. So are sweet starchy sis on protein-type foods. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper. P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on low blood sugar, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Low Blood Sugar" booklet. WELUAREN i YOU EVBsl JEALOUS?

Astronomers had thought At present astronomers that all comets are old timers, cannot prove how Saturn got older than the planets. A Comet ils golden halo. Until recently, called 1969e proved to be a the most popular theory sug- youngster. It seems logical to gested they were formed by j suppose that it may have been an accident. As we know, our i created from material that ex- ploded out into space by a vol- canic eruption. The new theory suggests that a super-volcano on Saturn may have erupted the ring material far above the surface. This new idea is an interesting one, but so far no- body can prove it. w We still have volcano out- bursts on the earth. So do Mars and other planets. We had a whopper in the 1880s that blew the top off a moun- tain. There is evidence that the earth had even bigger ones in the dim distant past. So did Mars. Ages ago, gigantic eruptions on the giant planets might have exploded lots of material out into space. Some may have taken off and be- come moons. Some may, just may, have stayed fairly close to home and formed the gold- en rings around Saturn. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) be in very deep water.
