MONDAY, APRIL 1 Your birthday today: Brings on much encouragement for a prosperous, active year. Much of what happens now is a direct expression of material values and general striving to increase wealth.

What exactly are sound waves? Years ago, people had a sort of riddle about sounds. When a tree falls in a forest where nobody is near to hear, does it make a sound? Most said it could not make a sound unless there were ears to hear it. Nowadays, we know that old tree certainly came down with a noisy crash. To understand sounds, we must imagine a crowd of things that are much too small tor our eyes to see. These midgets are mini-particles of matter called molecules. We also must imagine a peppy something called energy B.C. traffic toll higher VICTORIA (CP) The number of fatal traffic accidents on B.C. highways increased by 29 per cent in the 12 month period from Nov. 1, 1972, to Oct. while the number of cars increased only eight per cent, the highways department says. A department report estimates that 40 per cent of those killed were between the ages of 16 and 25, says the worst period for fatal accidents is between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. and that Saturday is the most hazardous day of the week with 25 per cent of the fatalities. There were 522 fatal accidents during the year, with less than three per cent attributed to mechanical failure. I Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS March 30, 1974 Canada's first subway system opened in Toronto 20 years ago today in 1954. Construction began on the mile, subway in 1949. Its carrying capacity was passengers an hour, compared with on street cars. 1945 Canadian troops entered Emmerich, Germany, towards the end of the Second World War.

Even though we cannot see them, molecules and energy work together to create various sound waves that whisper, shout and mumble in our ears. All sounds must travel through something made of crowded molecules. The something may be either liquid, like water, or solid, like steel or gaseous, like air. Sounds start out as spurts of energy and the mini- molecules are needed to carry it along. Suppose, for example, you bang on a drum. Your peppy energy causes the drum head to vibrate or tremble. These tiny vibrations bash the air, causing its molecules to vibrate also. The jogging molecules jog their neighbors and the sound energy is carried farther and still farther from the drum. It travels out and away as the jogging molecules push and relax, push and relax. These bouncy jogs are called sound waves. Different sounds bounce along in "different waves long or short, fast or slow Fast waves that pulse many times per second bring high notes to our ears. Slower waves, with fewer pulses per second, bring us the lower notes. How fast the molecules carry sounds depends on how close they are crowded together. For example, sounds travel faster through water than through air, faster through steel than through water. In air, through which sounds travel quite slowly, the molecules are widely separated from each other. In water, which carries sounds faster, the molecules are more crowded. The molecules In steel are jam packed together and they can bounce the pulsing sound waves along very fast indeed. The speed of pulsing sound waves is called frequency. It measures the number of times the sound energy pulses in a second. The lowest note on a piano has a frequency of 27, which means its sound waves pulse 27 times in a second. The highest notes we can hear have frequencies of pulses per second. These are just a few simple examples of how sound waves behave. Actually they can do many more complicated things. For example, the amount of energy in a sound makes a difference. If you bang a drum with all your might, it sounds very loud. But it sounds much softer to somebody down the street. This is because sound waves gradually lose their pep. as they travel farther from where they started. Finally they fade away. Andy sends a seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Narnia to Mark Milley, age 8, of Blairmore, Alberta for his question: Does the bighorn sheep lose his horns? Most of the male deer lose their horns in the late fall and start growing a new set in the spring. Actually their so- called horns are really antlers, which are not quite the same as hrns. Our handsome bighorn is a sheep and not a deer. He is the only wild sheep of North America and his horns are real horns. Unlike the antlered deer, he does not shed them with the seasons. By the time he is fully grown, his sturdy body weighs about 320 pounds and his splendid horns form a spiral curve of 45 inches. The female has a smallish pair of almost straight horns and she does not shed them either. The magnificent bighorn also is called the Rocky Mountain sheep. This is because his home is high in the Western mountains. There the mighty old rams look down on the world from up among the ragged crags. Usually the females and the growing youngsters go lower down the slopes to feed on shrubs and mountain grasses. Oimttora by chil- dren of Herald should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
