So- Today in history Bj THE CANADIAN PRESS June 12. 1373 A World Economic Con- ference begoi in London 40 years ago tcday in 1933 in an attempt to solve industrial and financial collapse. The con- ference failed, largely owing to President Franklin D. Ro- osevelt's refusal of the Euro- pean countries' proposal to set up an unrestricted inter- national exchange system, based on a fixed price of gold. The United States felt this would inhibit its own ef- forts to raise prices and reach industrial stability.

Each distinct letter in this easy addition alphametic stands for a particular but different digit. What is SAM) anyway? Types of gold Andy sends a complete 20- volurae set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Steve Paschall, age 12, of Newport News, Virginia, for his ques- tion: How many types of gold are found in the earth? We frequently hear cf yellow gold and red gold, white gold and gold tagged with numbers called carats. These are man- made alloys of pure gold and various other metals. Gold Is one of the basic chemical ele- ments. The gold found in na- ture is the sams as the gold contained in the various man- made versions. A few natural samples are pure or almost pure gold. Most are alloyed or asso- ciated with a variety of other metals and minerals. V V K Here and there, natural gold occurs in skimpy, though val- uable deposits. Microscop i c particles also are strewn through many rocks. The total amount is estimated to be less than one millionth part of the earth's crust, plus some sur- prising quantities in sea water. It is mined from visible depo- sits and elaborate processes are used to extract fine fragments from low grade ores. Since the end of the 15th cen- tury, all man's efforts to mine and extract gold from the earth has yielded no more than enough to stuff a cube-shaped container 50 feet on a side. The earth's atoms of gold are exactly the same as those in man-made alloys such as red, yellow and white gold. Pure gold is found almost never and most natural samples are alloy- ed with silver. Samples of rich yellow contain less silver and those of pale yellow contain more. Most California gold is alloy- ed with about 10 per cent sU- ver. It is found in chunky n gets, fine flakes and small grains. More is frund as gold- en threads, like lacy, leaves and feathers, woven through layers of milky white quartz stone. These samples are call- ed picture rocks. The gold in most Hungarian deposits con- tains 30 per cent silver. The worthwhile when ten tons of purest natural gold contains only 0.3 per cent silver and is found in Australia. Natural samples of reddish gold may be alloyed with cop- per. Other natural gold is found in telluride rocks con- taining silvery white tellurium I and perhaps iron, silenium and' silver. Fragments of natural gold also may be found in min- eral sulphides of iron, zinc and lead. When the telluride ores are mined for then- major me- tals, the gold content is a by- product. There may be enough of it to pay the cost of the whole operation. The job of extracting micro- scopic gold fragments from ig- neous and ether rocks is highly complex. Different methods use chemicals, gravity, water and smelting. These projects are ore yield only an ounce of gold. V V Pure gold is one of the dens- est metals, 19.3 times heavier than water. This is 24K, or 24 carat gold. It is top soft for everyday use so it is smelted with other metals to make stronger alloys. The silvery white gold used to set precious gems is alloyed with silver, platinum and palladium. Red gold may be alloyed with cop- per. The alloys are measured in 24 parts or carat units. A mixture of 18 parts of gold and six parts of other metals is 18 carat gold. It is more dur- able than 22 carat gold, which contains only two parts of other metals.
