Astronomers cannot say for erlain. But Ihsre is a lot of vidence to suggest that per- ips another planet once orhit- 1 the sun between little Mars id giant Jupiter. Tlie evidence 30ks logical, but astronomers. not liave enough facts to rove it. Hence, we must call grand idea a theory, which 5 an educated guess. Per baps ur educated space probes will clay the proveable evidence ceded to settle the question: 0 A model of tlie Solar System eveals that the orbiting plan- Is form an pattern vith one exception. The dis- beUveen the orbits far- lier from Ihe sun grad- uilly wider except for the ixtva long jump between the >rbits of Mars and Jupiter. The pace between their orbits averages about 3-12 million miles. This is almost four times wider than our distance from he sun. Certainly Ihere is room for another planet between Mars and Jupiter and it looks as if here should be one there to complete the planetary picture. This gives us a logical reason o suspect that there once wa, such a planet, but a logica guess is not enough to prove a scientific fact. However, there is some other evidence to back it up. That gaping space be- Lween Ihe orbits of Mars and Jupiter is not exactly vacant. It is occupied by the assorted asteroids, orbiting the sun like swarms of golden bees. Some stronomers call them the planetoids, meaning small planets. Moons orbit in cuTli- cue orbits around their parent planets as they go around Ihe sun. The asteroids travel around hi smooth, planetary Jypc orbits. Most, but not all of them stay within a wide belt, more or less where we would expect to find that miss- ing planet. This is enough evidence to j give us another logical idea to support our theory. Perhaps the asteroids arc the fragments of a whole planet that once shat- lered asunder. There is more j evidence, hut not yet enough to prove it. Some of the runaway asteroids cross lire orbit of Mars and loop close enough to strike the earth. They come Blazing through our atmosphere and land as meteorites and these fallen space travelers bring mysterious evidence. solid planet is arranged in shells with its heaviest mater- ials concentrated in the center and the lightest ones at the sur- face. Fallen meteorites come in concentrated chunks of cither metals, light rocks and lighter clays. This would be so if they arc really fragments from the BlONDIE-By Chic Young different layers of a shatter- ed planet. There is. as you see, a lot of evidence that a missing planet once orbited the sun between Mcrs and Jupiter. On the other hand, nobody knows enough about past Iiistory of the Solar System to prove this was so, or how such a planet could be shattered. Perhaps after all, it was never there and the asteroids are merely bits of debris left over when the other planets were created.

I had intermittent but persist- ent nose bleeds for atxmt a week. The difference was I am an adult. Two specialists han- dled my case. They checked my blood pressure and suggest- ed that the air in my home was. too warm and dry. They caut- erized twice, but I still had nose bleeds. Finally the doctor gave me a prescrintion for medicine which he told me was fo.- my blood, and also told me to get a tube of surgical I used the small finger to nib this into each nostril at night before retiring. The doctor though the medicine solved the problem. Packing also was al- ways effective. min C that some claim has been very successful. Others have suggested stopping other vita- mins, particularly cod liver oil and Vitamin A. Still other read- ers Ihink they have gotten suc- cess by taking Vitamin A. Other readers have asked about iron for nose bleeds. The purpose of taking iron is to replace iron lost from ac- tual bleeding. Anyone who has persistent hemorrhage or loss of bloorl from any place, whether it foe from an ulcer, nose bleed, hemorrhoids menstruation, has a loss of iron. If the bleed- ing is persistent eventuaUy this will deplete the body's stores of iron and they need to be re- placed.

I received a lot of sug- gestions about nose bleeds. It is true, particularly in old- er people, that the lining of the r.ose may dry out. The scaly scabs iaside are irritating and may bleed. They also stimulate people lo nick their noses, caus- ing bleeding. Any good lubri- cant in Ihe tip of the nose will help solve (he drying out lern. A petroleum base jelly or Vaseline is useful or any of the surgical lubricants. The idea is lo keep Ihe lining oiled and re- lain the natural moisture in the bling and growling noises, I agree that it is terribly embarr- assing when this is so loud and frequent. Tell her to drink an eight-ounce glass of nonfat milk or eat four to six crackers he- fore going out. This stops mine.
