I've heard of some people tak- ing them and I would appre- ciate any other help you can give to us folks. Dear Reader stroke commonly means that an area of the brain has been dam- aged. Usually this is from a clot or related mechanism that plugs an artery [o part of the brain. So the real disease that causes the problem is in the blood vessel. The brain and spinal cord cells that are destroyed cannot be regenerated like a broken bone or many other parts of the body. Since almost all of our functions can be pinpointed to a specific part of the brain the area damaged determines if a stroke victim paralyzed, can't speak or has other prob- lems. To illustrate, there is a small spot on the surface of the left side of the brain that is the central point for controlling the right leg. When you want to move the right leg impulses pass from this point, cross over to the left side of the spinal cord and eventually stimulate tia right leg muscles to control sounds simple brain that escape injury take LEo (July 2.1-Aug.

A stroke patient needs to have particular attention to the development of his muscles by special exercises so he can make the most of his ability and prevent, in so far as pos- sible, crippling or loss of func- tion. Regarding circulation pills, if a person has high blood pres- sure it is sometimes advisable to treat this to prevent further changes in the blood vessels and possible further damage to tho brain. There are other medicines that are given to help the brain function when the circulation is poor. No gen- eralization can be made. The things that prevent heart dam- age from blood vessel disease apply equally well to strokes, preferably before they occur. This means, no cigarettes, pre- vention of obesity, a proper diet, limited in any kind of fat, tend to clear the air. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. The middle road goes farthest today.

Heat, temperature Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to James P. Hotchkies, age 15, of Staten Island, New York, for his question: How does heat differ from temperature? A weight lifter can test his degree of muscle power by lift- ing 100 pounds or more. He can repeat the test many times. But this does not tell the total amount of strength his body can use in a day. Heat is a different form of energy. A in different substances. Sup- pose we put a pot of water and a bar of iron on the two burn- ers. When the water boils, the iron contains enough heat to sizzle the water. Actually iron Is nine times easier to heat than water. This quality is spe- cific heat. On the scale of spe- cific heat, water has a rating of 1, iron has a rating of 0.113. This quality causes the i oceans to absorb heat mor thermometer can measure than the solid land. degree of the litter's body temperature.

You should, therefore, be conscious of slam, and It tuggested that you bid at least five spades. This a vague sort of bid, of course.

But they do not Sand'" continents' get hotter tell the amount of heat in one than the seas. In winter the m i 1 d e r oceans share their or a dozen feverish bodies. Heat is the speed energy of molecules in solids, liquids and gases. The faster they move, the holler the substance. We can measure the degree of heat energy only as it flows from one substance to another. For warmth with the cooler shores. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Steven' Topolnitsky, age 10. of Winnipeg, 14, Man- toba, for his question: How tlo they make dry ice? In winter, the frosty air steals example, suppose the water at i heat from the water and chills the beach is 65 degrees Fahr- j it to solid ice. This happens enheit. We dip a thermometer j when the temperature drops to in a sample of sea water, its i zero degrees centigrade The c o 11 i d ing molecules transfer some of their heat energy to the mercury and caused it to expand to a level of 65 degrees. But obviously this does not re- veal the total heat contained in the ocean. This enormous reservoir of heat was absorbed from weeks of solar radiation on a global scale. Its temperature mea- sures the heat transferred by a f e w zillion sample molecules. ILs heat is the total energy con- tained in all its speeding mole- cules. We can measure this in calories, kilocalories or BTUs. These units estimate heat in terms of the potential work en- ergy it can yield. Molecules have rules for ab- sorbing, storing and releasing their heat. As a pot of water sits on a burner, its molecules use the heat to move faster at sea level when, the temperature reaches lOOdegrees centigrade, they are moving fast enough to sep- arate from the liquid and zoom off as gaseous vapor. But if the pot stays on the burner, its temperature does not rise above 100 degrees. Obviously temperature of dry ice is minus 80 degrees centigrade which is 80 centigrade degrees colder than ordinary ice. Actually it is frozen carbon dioxide, the waste gas we breathe out. Thank goodness the weather never gets cold enough to freeze carbon dioxide gas into solid dry ice. Neither does a refrigerator or a deep freezer. To make dry ice, we mus remove enough heat from car bon dioxide gas to make i freeze solid. Ordinary freezer, cannot do (lie job, but there ari other ways. When a gas is com pressed, or squeezed in a pres sure tank, it gets hotter. H i escapes through a valve, it uses its heat to spread out and ex pand. To make dry ice. they compress carbon dioxide gas and let it escape time after time. Each time it loses more o: iLs heat. When its temperature drops to minus 80 degrees centi- grade, it freezes into dry ice But beware, this stuff is cok enough to freeze your bare fingers beyond repair.
