It's almost time to buy some smudgy black charcoal for cut- door summer harbeques. In olden times, a village often bad a charcoal maker who worked off in the woods. He made enough for everybody, though some people liked to make their own in the backyard. Nowa- days, they make our fancy char- coal in special ovens. This is a better way to do it. But, modem charcoal makers still use the same old recipe they used ages ago, with a few sensible changes. Charcoal feels somewhat like black chalk and looks like sooty carbon. Actually soot and charcoal are made mostly of carbon and there is a lot of carbon hidden in ordinary wood. You might never guess that our neat little charcoal chunks start out as ordinary wood, but they do. Ages ago, our ancestors discovered how to make charcoal by roasting sticks and chips of wood very, very slowly. And nobody has invented another way to do the job. In olden days, a village char- coal burner often lived in a clearing in the forest. There he could find enough wood and also roast it where the fumes did not pollute the air around the village. His roastijig pit was a hole in the ground, packed with sticks and chins. As soon as he lighted the fire, he cov- ered it with a pointed roof of wooden slats and topped the whole thing with shovels of dirt and grassy turf. This was not quite enough, be- cause fire cannot burn without air. A strong draft makes wood burn with fast flames. The charcoal burner needed a slow, slow fire, so he gave it only a little air. He made a few smallish holes near the bottom and a larger hole in the pointed roof to let the fumes escape. The fire toasted and roasted the wood for days and days. It turned some of its unwanted chemicals into gases and drove them through the roof. But the 1 wood styled behind, sooty black carbon in the wood styed behind. The roasting wood shrank and shrank and turned sooty black. When at last it was done, the charcoal burner shov- eled dirt and damp ashes over his oven. This shut off the air supply and the fire went out. The oven was left to cool for several days. When it was bro- ken apart, there was the char- coal. J Nowadays, charcoal making is neater and faster. They load the wood into huge containers over a slow fire. They get about 30 pounds of charcoal from 100 pounds of wood (The olden charcoal burner got only about We also save some" of the waste gases to make use f u 1 chemicals, such as acetone and acetic acid. We can make charcoal from roasted hones and other things that, contain lots of carbon. Most ol it is fine for filtering out odors and unwanted parti- cles from air and water. Some- times the waterworks filters out dirty debris through beds of charcoal. Sugar manufactur- ers may use layers of char- coal to filler their thick syrup. In some countries, they heat rooms with charcoal fires. But burning charcoal gives off suf- focating fumes. When it's used indoors without a very good draft, windows must be open to let in fresh breatheable air, Questions asseo M cMTmcn of Herald readers 'should bt mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

The odds favored taking finesse against the queen of diamonds, but unless West held the ace of clubs, there was no assured entry to dummy.

West played the deuce, North the four and East put up the ace and shifted to the deuce of hearts. Declarer played the ace of hearts and tested the dia- monds by cashing the which brought forth only small cards. He was about to lead a club to the queen, wlicn he paused to ask him- self why East had made ac- cess to the dummy so easy. Unless the latter held a blank ace of clubs, it would have been simple to hold off for at least one round. The prospect of West's having five clubs as well as fiva spades, appeared remote. There was another possibil- ity that suggested its-lf, however. If East held ths queen of it was would have exerted every effort to deny declarer access to the North hand by holding off on the ace of clubs.

Ear transplants may end deafness CHICAGO (AP) An ear specialist predicts that in- creased use of ear tissue trans- plants soon will mean restored hearing for hundreds of thou- sands of persons now afflicted with deafness. Dr. Eugene L. Derlacld said in an interview several hundred such transplants are being per- formed successfully each year on pel-sons suffering from cer- tain types of deafness. "Once the tissue becomes available, it will he used more and Dr. Derlacki said. He forecast a growth in the number of banks storing the tiny bones, cartilage and other issues used in such transplants the midwestern U.S. There are two or three sinu'lar programs elsewhere. Dr. Derlacki said not all deaf persons can benefit from such transplants, but he estimated i that several hundred thousand might.
