Ask Andy OUR TIME SYSTEM Andy sends a complete 20- volurne set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Philip Poulin, age 14. of West Warwick, R.I., for his question: How did our days, months and years originate? Originally these passing periods of time were donated by the sun and the stars, the moon and the whirling world. For our time system is based, more or less, on the motions of the heavenly bodies. In a general way, this was es- tablished long ages ago. Later, astronomers gradually made the details more precise. Most likely our days, months and years originated with the Magi of ancient Babylon more than years ago. These early astronomers studied the motions of the sun, the stars and the moon and bisected the circle to cope with the problem. The planet earth, of course, is surrounded on all sides by star-studded space. As it rotates on its axis and revolves around the sun, we are turned to face chang- ing views of outer space. The sky overhead is like a huge dome, a celestial hemisphere reaching from horizon to horizon. As the earth rotates toward the east, the heavenly bodies rise in the east, arch up overhead and set in the west. Then we turn around to face the opposite direction and behold the op- posite celestial hemisphere. As the earth completes each rotation, the two hemispheres give us a complete picture of the celestial sphere. Our calendar day is based on the earth's rotation and the celestial sphere provides us with a great clock in the sky. This problem was solved, more or less, by early astronomers many thousands of years ago. The year is based on the time it takes the tilted earth to orbit once around the sun. As this happens, our view of the celestial sphere gradually changes with the seasons. For example, in summer the stars of our winter night pass overhead during the daytime when they are masked by the dazzling sun. The heavens that provide a clestial clock also provide a celestial calendar. Early astronomers noted that twelve major constellations loop overhead with the changing seasons. Possibly the Babylonians first divided these star groups into the twelve constellations of the zodiac. This was one way to measure the months. Other early astronomers noted the changing phases of the moon and tried to fit the lunar months into the solar year. But after many tries, this idea was discarded as downright impossible. The day is based on the earth's rotation and the year on its revolution around the sun. These celestial patterns originated when the earth was born. Thousands of years ago, several groups of early astronomers began using the heavenly parade to measure the passage of time.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Our daughter married a young man who had the mumps go down into his testicles as a young boy. What are the chances of him being sterile? They want a family and so far no conception has taken place. If you feel they have a problem, what steps should they take9 I do not like to see our daughter, needlessly upset, but I do not know how to advise them. Dear Reader There is no way to tell what the problem is that prevents a couple from having a baby without a careful examination. It can be because of the woman or because of the man. The mistake that is usually made is examining the woman only. It is true that this complication of mumps can cause a man to be sterile, without affecting his sex drive or capacity. Despite such a) complication, many men are' fertile. Some couples have fertility- problems because of their habits. Lubricants, for example, may kill live sperm cells and decrease the likelihood of pregnancy. Your daughter should go see her doctor for an examination. He may want her to go to the obstetrician, and he. in turn, may wish to examine both of them or arrange for your son- i n -1 a w to have an Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER "The approximate number we soldT" said Charlie. "I can give you the exact number." Ben shook his head. "One of your figure gimmicks, eh? Let's have it then." "Okay, but first here's how." replied Charlie. "If you shift the fina] two digits to the front in their same order you multiply it by three, and it's the smallest number that works that way What was the number'7 Yesterday's answer: RACKS was 1Z6SO lovrm. Answer i examination. Many people with this problem can be helped. Dear Dr. Lamb I have read dozens of articles on bust development. How about us girls who would like to reduce our busts? I'm a 40C and, frankly, find it very uncomfortable. If it helps, I'm 20. five feet eight, and 144 pounds. I need to lose about 10 pounds which would help some, but not as much as I would like. Corrective surgery is not possible because my doctor says my bust is not overly large to require it. Are there any kinds of exercises that would really help reduce the bust7 Please help you are rny last resort. Dear Reader There are situations where large breasts really need surgical reduction. In some of these instances special medicine is then needed to prevent them from regaining their former size. Most doctors feel as your doctor does, that such operations should be reserved for women who have exaggerated enlargement of the breasts. Women do complain when their breasts are too large. The weight alone is uncomfortable and in extreme instances can cause support straps to irritate the skin. The only exercises of use in reducing moderately enlarged breasts are those that help you lose weight. That means endurance exercises such as running, walking, tennis and other competitive sports. For additional information on losing weight you may want to get the booklet 1 have prepared for readers on this subject. Send 50 cents to "Losing Weight." in care of this newspaper. P.O. Box 1551. Radio City Station. New- York. N.Y. 10019. You are right, your breasts will ricrrcasr in if you can lose some weight. The fat in the breasts decreases with general bodv fat loss. If you eliminate 15 pounds it. would niflke qinlo a difference.
