The age dating and carbon 14 in the living talent in carbon M was hard to plant or animal- They know figure because its records are that no more was added after the life processes ceased. But the ratio changed as the carbon 14 decayed at a fixed rate. They carefully measure the two car- bon contents locked in the fossil and compare the ratio with the radioactive timetable. If the carbon 14 is only half what it was, the fossil is The atomic weight of years old. Naturally the code can be used to date younger and older fcssils. In younger ones, less than half the carbon 14 has de- cayed precisely according to the schedule. In fossils older than years, more than half of the original radioactive carbon has decayed. This code can give the age of fossils as old as years, after which the traces of carbon 14 are too small to give a dependable reading. kept in a special code.

The trillion-to-one ratio of i carbon and carbon 14 is locked in the remains, which may decay fast and recycle them back" into the world of nature. However, when organic re- mains are preserved as fossils, carbon 14 breaks down into ordinary carbon. This radioac- tive decay proceeds at a pre- cisely fixed rate, changing the original carbon ratio atom by atom. After 5.BOO years, exact- ly half the original carbon 14 locked into the fossil becomes Cert a i n other radioactive substances decay at slower rates than carbon 14. Hence, they can be used to date back through much longer periods. Decayed and partly decayed uranium reveals the ages of many ancient rocks. The potas- sium argon test, a newer radioactive calendar, decodes the age of rocks back through billions of years. Questions asKed uy children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

East made a takeout double after North opened the bid- ding with one club, South had the distributional values for a redouble, hut he was reluc- tant to take aggressive action with only six high card poinLs. He accordingly look an alternate course by mak- ing a jump shift response of two spades. IA jump in a new suit is forcing for oae round on the opening bidder. 1 When North made the somewhat negative rebid of. two no trump, South re- treated to three clubs to show his fit with the original suit. North might have passed at this point, for in light of East's takeout double, the king of hearts no longer seemed an impressive value. North instMll chose to show his mild spade fit and South carried on to game. Had West somehow pill his hand on the ten of hearts, there would have no story to tell for after the. defense cashes out Uiclr book in lhat is no way to prevent East from scoring the setting trick subsequently with the queen of spades. There is no criticism to 'be levied against West however for making the more normal lead of the five of diamonds. East put up the ace and South ruffed with the three at spades. Declarer could count five spade that suit divided four clubs. The normal pro- cedure for scoring a 10th trick would be to lead to- ward the king of hearts to the hope that West held the ace. In light of East's takeout double, declarer considered it unlikely that a heart play would succeed and he looked for an alternative. If all of the dummy's diamonds were ruffed out, it might be possible to elimi- nate East's side cards and eventually force the latter to lead hearts. At trick two, South led over to the king of spades to trump a second diamond with .the seven of spades. The ace of trumps was cashed and when both opponent followed suit, only the queen remained outstand- ing. A club to the king put North in for another diamond ruff and the ace of clubs was employed to trump a fourth diamond with the ten of spades. Altho South was now out of trumps, he had achieved his objective, for East was down to the queen of spades and the A-Q-J-2 of hearts. The queen of clubs was led and East had a choice of unpleasant alternatives. If he rutfcd in, he would have to lead hearts and dummy would score the fulfilling trick with the king of hearts. Tf East took discards on the remaining clubs, South would also have 10 tricks clubs, four diamond ruffs and the ace, king of spades. East chose the latter course and South cheerfully conceded the last, three tricks.
