Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Mirth 1, 197S Ask Andy THE OCEAN FLOOR Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tim Eylen, age 11, of Tacoma, Wash., for his question: What is beneath (he ocean? Far from land, on a ship out there in mid ocean, the shin- ing waves reach out on all sides to where the dome of the sky dips down to the horizon. The water below the ship may be two miles deep or more: And it rests on some fabulous geography called the ocean Floor. The earth's crust is a rocky skin, ranging in thickness from five to M miles. This crusty layer is cracked into large and small plates like a rather loose overcoat around the entire globe. Here, and there, parts are uplifted to form massive continents and assorted islands. In other parts of the crust are enor- mous hollows. These hollows are the basins that hold the waters of the oceans. One might expect the stupendous weight of water to crush and level the floors of the seas. But the bed .beneath the ocean is as bumpy as the land. The main reason for this is that these crustal basins are as restlessly active as the mountainous land areas, if not more so. The average depth of the seas is about two miles. It ranges from a few inches along the tidal shores and dips gently down the continental slopes. These end where the continental shelves plummet down the steep walls of the deep ocean basins. Here and there the floor of the abyss stretches in flat plains, carpeted with silty clays and layers of ooze form- ed by age old accumulations of diatoms and other sea dwellers. On these plains there are lonely submarine mounts, like old volcanic cones. There also are strange flat topped underwater mounts called guyots. These too may be old volcanos that surfaced when the sea level was lower and pounding waves bashed off their pointed heads. In addition to the plains and lone mountains, there are enormous cracks or trenches, plunging several miles below the surrounding sea bed. However, the most spec- tacular undersea features are mountain ranges, stretching down the major oceans. They are longer and more massive than the largest land ranges. These ranges are called mid ocean ridges. Most of them straddle cracks in the crust, where lava material oozes up from the mantle below. This new material constantly spreads'the crustal plates apart. We how know that this sea floor spreading explains how the continents drift apart'. Qimtloiu Mkid by chil- dren ol Herald mailed la Ask Andy. P.O. Box. 765, Hunllnglon Beach, 92S4I. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1173) Oddities in the news AZLE, Tex. (AP) Resi- dents of this community of 500 need three phone books to keep in touch with their neighbors, a fourth if they want to call Fort Worth, 20 miles away. The two counties that divide Azle are served by South- western Bell Telephone Co. and General Telephone Co. and Continental Telephone Co. serves other nearby commu- nities. Telephone tolls vary, too. It. costs a quarter to make a call from Buddies' Supermarket, for example, but only.a dime down the road a way.

PRAGUE (Reuter) Prague is the dirtiest city in eastern, Europe, the Czech- oslovak news agency Ccteka reported Monday. It said industry in Prague produces tons of solid and gaseous pollutants a year and that every square mile of the city gets an average of about 600 tons of ash an- nually, rising in industrial dis- tricts to as high as tons. Ceteka blamed the boiler furnaces and private stoves, mostly burn- ing low-quality coal, but said the problem was aggravated Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS March 1, 1975 The United States published the Zimmerman telegram 58 years ago in 1917 and pressure for the U.S. to enter the First World War against Germany increased. Arthur Zimmerman, German secretary of state, had wired his ambassador in Mexico to sound out the Mexicans about attacking the U.S., promising Arizona, New Mexico and Texas as a reward. The British intercepted and decod- ed the message.
