Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Joturdov, November 4, 1972 _ THE UTHMIDGI HERALD 23 The Appalachians Andy sends a complete 20- volume set at the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Scott Parker, age 12, of Muncie, In- diana, for his question: What made the Appalachian Mountains? The northern arm of tire Ap- palachians was made about 300 million years ago and the south- ern arm arose about 100 mil- lion years later. The layers of faulted and folded rocks reveal when the massive mountain chain was built and also part of the story of how it was built. The answers to what made it are deep below the rocky sur- face crust. In the past few years, earth scientists have found evidence that mountain- making may be linked to a lot of other stupendous geograph- ical happenings. The term for mountain-mak- ing is which means deforming the earth's crust. The term meaning "equally suggests why and how these massive crustal ridges are pushed up, cracked and stack- ed like multiple rocky sand- wiches. 11 seems that the glo- bal crust strives to keep its weight e v e v 1 y distributed. Countless tons of surface debris constantly are shifted by the erosion of the weather and run- ning water. When these heavy deposits accumulate in enorm- ous trenches, mountains arise to adjust the crustal weight. The northern arm of the Ap- palachians stretches from New- foundland to Virginia. Some 400 million years ago, this enorm- mous arm was a geosyncline a long, deep trench fed by silly streams. Through the ages, the streams dumped gravels and sandy clays into the huge ditch and marine creatures of the Paleozoic Era left their fossils in its muddy floor. Ages later, the clogging geosyncline be- came a soggy swamp. Scrawny coal forests grew there, sharing the steamy air with giant onflies while whopping sala- manders wallowed in the mud. About 300 million years ago, the accumulated deposits be- came critical and isostasy be- gan adjusting the weight of the old geosyncline. The mas- sive crust arose in more or less parallel ridges, generating en- ormous heat and pressure deep below the surface. Volcanos erupted igneous lava, earth- oaakes helped to crack and stack the deformed crustal blocks in ragged ranges of .joung mountains. The stupen- dous project took many millions of years. Meantime, another ceosyn- cline was filling with silly de- posits. About 200 million years ago, its weight became critical and the southern arm of the Appalachians began to arise. Its younger ranges now reach southward from the northern arm as far as Alabama, mak ing the entire Appalachian chain aboul 1.500 miles long. Time and weather have round- ed and eroded the ragged crests. And during the ice ages, the ranges as far south as New York were scarred and denud- ed by glaciers. Nowadays, scientists favor a global view of the restless earth. They see the Appal- achians and other enormous ranges as local features relat: ed to somewhat mysterious planetary forces. They have just about enough evidence to prove that the drifting contin- ents have been inching apart through the ages. The magnetic poles and even the geographic poles also are shilling. The-c is evidence that these mysterious global activilies helped lo build Ihe high Himalayas. Possibly Ihey also operated behind the scenes when Ihe Appalachians were made.

'and the Institute of Canadian Advertising in an attempt to set 'some guidelines by which ad- vertisers evaluate the veracity of Iheir advertisements. "I feel the onus is on adverti- sers to make this thing work." i he said in an interview yesler- jday. "After all. we're the ones I who put up the money and ad- vertisers are in a position to in- sist that advertisements be writlen Ihe way Ihey want them." Mr. Hodges hopes that Ihrough Ihe Association of Na- tional Advertisers in the United States, the message of the Truth in Advertising study may find ils way to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission "Our own president (of Ster- ling Drug Ud.) has volunteered to write about Truth in Adver- tising to Sterling in the United Kingdom and Australia, both of which have advertising organ- izations who have expressed in- j teresl in the concept." I Additionally, Mr. Hodges will be carrying the message of the study to the ACA membership across the country', with re- gional meetings throughout the year. Mr. Hodges said he does nol I expect any lessening in pvob- lems with provincial and fed- eral governments. 6000 AFTERNOON, I ..y o I'M FINE, THANK TOIL. ICES.
