Varied Diet Over World Provides Health Clues By ELLEN WALPOLE Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Cindy Dinch-er, age 10, of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, for her question: Is fire a solid, liquid or gas? Young science students are told that everything in our world is made of solids, liquids or gases. This may be a bit misleading, because it does not include happenings. Tilings that happen use energy - and we cannot say that anything is mad� of energy. Solids, liquids and gases are atoms and molecules of matter. Chemicals use energy in all sorts of ways to model and remodel their molecules. One -of these chemical operations is fire.    Coal and wood are solids. In order to bum, they must use up oxygen. And oxygen is a gas. As they bum, most of the solid fuels are changed into other gases. They also give off water vapor and this may turn to steamy moisture. So, when a fire bums, there are solid fuels and ashes, fihny gases and often � trace of liquid water. Yet the fire itself is none of these things. It is a chemical happening that uses energy to change solids into gases and other substances. The use of energy makes fire very active. It devours or consumes its fuel. Scientists call it a chemical reaction because chemicals are changed and remodeled. Fire consvunes wood and coal and they disappear. Or so it seems. Actually, the solid fuel is broken apart into small pai-tides. Most of the pieces are tiny, invisible gas molecules that zoom off and mingle with the other gases of the air. Some of the leftovers are gritty ashes that the fire cannot break into smaller pieces. Tiny molecules of wood and coal are neat bundles of atoms. The atoms in each package are attracted to each other. This attraction is the energy that ties the package together. To break the package apart, stronger energy is needed from outside. In a fire, this energy is provided by heat. A lighted match provides enough energy to break up some of the molecules in a piece of paper. When they break apart, the energy that held them together is set free, This provides more heat to keep the paper fire blazing away. Some substances need more heat to start burning than others, A wad of burning paper provides enough heat to break up molecules of wood. The wood bums with still more heat -r enough to start coal burning As the fire bums, more and more fuel molecules burst their bonds. Some fragments zoom off separately as gas molecules of carbon dioxide and water vapor. Fragments of carbon swirl off in sooty plumes of smoke. The fire uses oxygen from the air to keep its burning energy going. * *  Fire Is just one kind of chemical reaction and there are many othersiSome give off heat as their molecules are remodeled. Others use up heat. Trees use the energy of srunMght to tie assorted atoms into molecules. This energy from the sun is stored up in wood and coal. When these fuels are burned, the energy that held the molecules together is freed. It heats the coals red-hot and lights flames in the blazing gases.

GOREN i The king of spades was m turned and South ruffed away East's ace. The jack cf cUamonds dislodged East's king and drew the outstanding trump. East returned a club, the. ace was played from dummy followed by the queen. Declarer overtook wjth the king and cashed his remaining club honors, discarding two hearts from dummy. The ace of hearts provided a parkhig place for North's remaining side card and the latter'^ trumps took the balance of the tricks. De-clarer lost in all, one spade and one diamond. East "was guilty of aegU-gence in failing to take the proper measures to a.ssura the defeat of the contract Ho is looking at nine hearts between his hand and the dummy, and it is a cinch that South has the remaining four cards in the suit by virtue of his opening bid. Since West is therefore marked with a void in hearts, and East can expect to take book for his side with the ace of spades and the king, of diamonds, ho Ehouia grab the lead without delay to make certain of giving partner a heart ruff. While it is true that overtaking West's queen of spades with the ace may cost a trick if South started with two, spades, that is a small price' to pay for the assurance of Seating the game coolzacU te 1>n: br TH* Chlcim Trlbmi Both vulnerable.

West opened the queen of epades, the three was played from dummy and East signaled encouragement by following with the eight. West continued with the jack of spades which was ruffed by the declarw. Soutli led the queen of diamonds, however when West followed with the five, the finesse was refused and the ac� was plajed from dummy. Nortli INT 40 Pasa In many parts of the world it is usual for people in their 70s and 80s to be physically vigorous. They have little or no evidence of what we call atherosclerosis - the fatty deposits in the arteries that cause senility, heart disease and strokes. During World War II, the islanders of Okinawa were studied and it was rare even for men of 80 to have atherosclerosis deposits in their arteries. The elder islanders were physically vigorous, participating in all ways in the activities of the community. Heart specialists think their diet and physical activity was the key. Habitually they ate a low-fat diet with lots of fish and little meat. They ate lots of vegetables, sweet potatoes, soybeans and rice. They didn't smoke. Early studies of the people of Cima also failed to show any signdficant evidence of fatty deposits in the arteries of the elderly. Throughout much of * si a, the rice-eating people who aid not have modem abundance were essentially free of the disease of civilization - mostly related to atherosclerosis affect-big the heart, brain, kidney and other parts of the body. Similar observations were made in Africa. In autopsy stu- dies of 6,500 Bantu not a single example of fatty deposits in the arteries of the heart was noted. Some of the best tribal dancers were vigorous in their 70s. Yet absence of civilization alone doesn't guarantee you will escape our diseases. In northern Kenya, a nomadic tribe of camel herders, known as the BendUles, have a high rate of heart disease, caused by accumulated fatty deposits in the arteries. They are vigorous people, far removed from the stresses of civilization. One explanation may be what they eat Their diet, like that of their urbanized brother, contains 35 to 40 per cent fat, mostly animal origin. Some islanders with high rates of heart disease and fatty deposits in their arteries are thought to have the problem because coconuts are their major food source and coconut cil has the same undesirable effects as animal fat. We have leamed a lot about how to prevent disease and maintain good health by observing the differences in health problems in the world The evidence points to the fact that bow you live not ojfly determines how you die,' but how vigorous and healthy you are particularly in later years. WHO OO VOU THINK X LOOK LIKE ? RAQUeu WELCH, ELIZASBTHTAVLOKOR LOfZBH ? BLONOIE-By Chic Young Life On Mars? WASHINGTON (AP) - Two space-agency biolo^ts have concluded from evidence sent back by Mars spacececraft that in spite of an apparently harsh environment, life of some sort may exist there. Some earthly organisms can survive under conditions almost as severe as those on Mars, the scientists say in the current Issue of The Quarterly Review of Biology. Employment Picture No Brighter TORONTO (OP) - Canadians will continue to face employment problems for the remainder of the year, according to a survey by a "Toronto employ ment agency. Manpower Services Ltd. says employers polled in a survey indicated less confidence in higher employment rates in the final quarter of this year than they did in a similar survey conducted a year ago. The agency says close to 17 per cent of the companies surveyed expect an increase in fall employment levels, compared with 21 per cent m the corresponding 1969 period. The most optimistic Industries, says the survey, are ectrical and appliance manufacturers and leather manufacturers. Industries anticipating problems in employment levels include agricultural implement makers, foundries and steel rolling mills and tracking and warehouse companies. On a city-by-city basis, Quebec City appears to be the most optimistic. About 47 per cent of companies there forecast rising employment. Most pessimistic was Saskatoon, where no companies held hope for a brighter employment picture. Companies in Victoria, Regina, and Brockville, Ont., indicated similar doubts. Youtli KiUed On Highway EDMONTON (CP) - Casey Richard CalMlioo, 16, of Marlboro, Alta., was killed when he was struck by a semi-trailer truck on the northern outsku-ts of Edmonton while he was walking on the highway. Dr. Cyril Ponnamperuma and Dr. Harold P. Klein of the Na-tional Aeronautics and Space Administration's Ames Research Laboratory in Moffett Field, Calif., base their report on data from the 20 per cent of the Martian surface that has been photographed, and on which temperatee, radiation level, atmospheric pressure and water content have been measured. They say the atmosphere �i the planet is extremely thin compared with that of the earth and the pressure is considerably lower on Mars. But "considerable variation in atmospheric composition and density can be tolerated by terrestrial organisms," and micro-organisms can grow or survive at preS' sures much lower than those on earth. Although the atmosphere of Mars lacks oxygen and nitrogen, "most organisms do not require atmospheric nitrogeo and even oxygen is not necessary for some," the article says. It adds that although the surface of Mars appears to be lacking, or almost lacking, in the liquid water that appears to be a requirement for life, water may exist beneath the surface as permafrost or ice. Plan Control On Use Of Explosives QUEBEC (CP) - Quebec Is reviving Second World War regulations governing the handling of explosives in an attempt to atrb dynamite thefts. Justice Minister Jerome Choquette said Thursday. He told a news conference that provincial police will exercise strict control over the pos-ses.sion and us& of explosives starting Nov. 1, and will be in charge of hivestigaiting any thefts. The regulations, similar to those in effect during wartime, were drafted because of the many recent dynamite thefts in the province, he said, althoaigh there was no reason to believe the thefts were terrorist-inspired. Police have reported three such thefts this vreek, including a 1,000-stick haul at St. HUaire east of Montreal, which brought the total stolen so far this year to about 9,110 sticks. There have been no terrorist bombings since July.
