J.4 THE IE1HBR1DGE HERAID Monday, 56, 1972-------- YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEAN6 DIXON TUESDAY, JUNE !7 Your Birthday Today: What you do this year is make your potentials into realities despite all external influ- ences. Casual relationships fade abruptly. The challenge is lo use your time for self- Improvement. Today's natives are brave, not always tact- ful bul appreciative of gen- tleness. ARIES (March 21-April Yesterday's stress continues, save your energy for construc- tive uses when the time comes. The here and now questions must be answered first. TAURUS (April 20-May A break In the rhythm of work Rivers in oceans Andy sends a complete 20- volurae set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Steve Schiedel, gae JO. of Albany, New York, for his question: Why don't lakos gather min- erals as Ihc ocean does? Actually they do, though on a smaller scale. Several min- erals dissolved in a fresh water lake have a salty taste. But the mixture is so diluted we can- not taste them, though a few lakes are much saltier than the sally sea. Most lakes are drained by streams that join rivers on their way to the ocean. All this running fresh water gathers minerals from the land and steals it away. Finally the loot is dumped into the sea. There it stays while more diluted minerals are add: ed every day. We are told that running water can wear away almost anything. It does this as it sweeps against rocks and pebbles, porous soil and soggy mud. The surface of a fresh lake may be so calm and still that it reflects the changing sky like a smooth, polished mirror. But the water coming into it gathers minerals from the land. As a rule, a lake is part of a network of fresh water, winding its way to the sea. The usual lake is a sort of bathtub set in a system of steams. Water flows into its basin and out again. It may be filled by a great river, by sev- eral streams or by springs that well from its floor. Its outlel may be a sizeable river or sev- eral streams too small to not- ice. Its moving water gathers minerals from the earth around it .The streams that keep it filled dissolve traces of chem- icals along the way and bring them through the lake. Springs come from ground water that gathers still more minerals as it seeps throug porous rocks below. The continents are drained by networks of busy lakes and rivers. All this moving fresh water gathers dissolved miner- als and dumps the diluted mix- .ure into the ocean that covers .hree-quarters of our watery world. The smiling sun evapor- ates moisture from its surface, )ut mosl of the chemical loot is .eft behind. Every day Iho fresh water drainage adds small helpings of salty chemi- cals to the big hoard and the salty sea grows saltier. The evaporated moisture he- comes gaseous vapor. It ming- les with the air and creates clouds with droplets ol pure ffesh water. The winds wafi the clouds along and some- where they shed their rainy moisture. When this fresher lhan-fresh water comes turn' bling down, it completes a trip around the great global water cycle. Then it singks or drains over the ground, gathering more minerals to dump into the sea. The vast ocean has been min eral collecting for at least four billion years. It now has enough loot to spread a SOC foot layer of salty chemical! over the continents.
