Dear Reader Colds and respiratory infections lumped inlo that category are caused by viruses, A virus is a link between the things th.it arc purely chemical and living mat- ter. U can only reproduce itself ivliile inside a living cell. This is why all of the virus work has been done by inoculating cgps, animals cr living tissue. This is distinctly differ- j ent from bacteria, which can be grown on the surface of a culture plate or on tlie surface of our throat. Penicillin has no effect whatever on treating vi- rus infections. Accordingly, doctors don't treat colds svith penicillin with the thought in mind that they are going to ge rid of the virus lhat causes the cold- Now, if infection, such as a strep throat, then tlvj penicillin is definitely i Thls of course is ti.e basis indicated. a sudden improvement of their j pal Lei: N7 a t u r e sometimes wou'd have clone these things on own, llp.nr Or. Lamb Why is it thai sugar does not show up in the urine of some people who have diabetes? I have it and sugar only shows in the blood. Is a person more opt to go into n coma when sugar dees not show up in the urine? i Dear Reader If the kidney j is working properly, it acts as i a filter for the blood. Sugar is filtered out into the urine only when the amount in the blood rises to a fairly high level. Even normal people, when they eat a lot of sweets, may have some sugar in the urine within the next hour or two. A person can have a higher than normal level of blood su- gar and the Ifwel still not be high enough for sugar to be spilled out of the urine. Dia- betes in these individuals is di- agnosed by the blood test. If the kidney is normal and there is no .sugar in the urine, the level of increased sugar in the blood Ls limited. Such a person is less likely to go into a coma than a person who has sugar in the urine with normal kidneys, The laser light Andy sends a complete 22- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Alan Wilcox, age of Visalia, California, for his question: Wlial exactly is laser light? A slim laser beam could tra- vel slraiglit to the moon and illumine a small circle on ils surface. Travelling through the same distance, a beam of or- dinary light would spread out through a large volume of space. Ordinary light spreads out from its source, which makes its intensity diminish with distance at a set ratio. The laser is designed to con- centrate light in parallel lines, so that it does not fan apart and diminish its intensity. GIAfTUR ONE I'M OtiW 6CMNS13 REAP ONE EACH IT! TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K.

Kesearch- ers beiion trying to improve it, or at least to make it behave in different ways. They hoped to concen t r a t e a spreading beam of light in slim straight lines. In the 1960s, they suc- ceeded in creating the laser beam and more ama7tng lasers arrived later. AU of them are tight beams of concentrated light traveling in straight lines. Ordinary light is a vast as- sortment of wave lengths, or energy freQuencies. pulsing along at miles per sec- ond. It fans out from its source in all directions and its mul- tiple frequencies are disturbed by all sorts of ouiside interfer- ences. When refracted, they re- veal the colors of fhe spectrum. The almost parallel laser beam limits the number of frequen- cies and its light is always the same color. The first lasers were short spurts of red light from ruby crystals inside complicated quartz tubes. In later models, gaseous mixtures were used to emit continuous beams. A pow- er source is turned on to ener- gize the captured atoms and molecules. Some of their ex- cited energy emits light. When this light interacts with other excifed aloms. they too release lieht energy. This complex in- volvement is called "stimulated emissions." It is different from ordinary light because it has only one color and its selected frequencies all travel in the i same direction. i A slim laser beam can be focused on an area no bigger than a living ccli. This makes it useful for delicate eye sur- gery. Another type can concen- trate its intensified energy to create temperatures as high as degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it useful for unlimited specialized duties in industries. However, a far greater future awaits the laser in the realm of communications. The sprawl- ing frequencies of ordinary ra- dio are prone to distortions by local and long distance interfer- ences. Laser beams do not have llicse problems. This particular field of sci- ence is called Light Amplifica- tion by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation. If you gather up the capital letters and arrange them in the right order, you can see how the amazing laser got ils name. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Susan Darlenc Too- mcy, age 11, of SI. Cathar- ines, Ontario, for her ques- tion: tree produces hardwood? The leafy maple that belongs lo Canada gives us handsome hardwood. The wood of the su- gar maple is even harder, per- haps because it grows very slowly and lives to a very great age. But the numerous maples are not the only hardwood Iree. This list is longer lhan your arm. It includes the oaks, beeches and birches that min- gle with the evergreen conifers in temperate and northern for- ests. It includes many fruit trees, walnuts r.nd a variety of other nut trees. In the temperate and north- ern zones, most of the broad- leaved trees that lose their leaves in winter are called trees. The knotty pines and other evergreens that bear needle shaped leaves are cbssed as softwood trees, fn the tropics, however, even the trees wilh huge wide leaves green through fhe yenr.
