Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Jean McDonald, age 12, of Romney, West Virginia, for her question: What is propane? Propane is one of those in- visible helpers that performs all sorts of everyday chores behind the scenes. It may be a bottled fuel that we use in the lamps and stoves we take on camping trips. It may be processed to make rainproof fabrics and many other plastics. A few people have adjusted their cars to use propane as a fuel This has a double advantage. It reduces auto emissions that cause air pollution and also conserves our supplies of gasoline. Gas for the kitchen range is piped to most city dwellings. But the pipes do not reach many people who live way out in the country They depend on tanks of LPG to heat their ranges. The letters stand for Liquid Petroleum Gases and the main gases in the mixture are propane and butane. They Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I suffer from claustrophobia (I I get panicky and feel faint if I am locked in any place, such as an elevator I won't ride a bus because I can't get out when I want to. I always thought that claustrophobia was caused from close places, but even if I am in a large department store, bank, etc and they lock the doors I am horrified I would love to fly to Hawaii, or any place, but am afraid of getting in a plane, even though they are large, because I will be locked in. I feel as if I can't breathe. Some have told me that I could fly if I took a tranquihzer, a sleep- ing pill or went to a psy- chiatrist just once could help. Could you please give me any advice I feel like a prisoner not being able to do these common things that most peo- ple do every day. I am 50 years old and have had claustrophobia for at least 30 years, and it :s getting worse. Dear Readfer The exact label for your phobia doesn't make that much difference Phobias can be related to mul- tiple situations, heights, open spaces, animals, autos or various objects. The impor- tant point is that they are all manifestations of anxiety Phobias are usually modified fears of some situa- tion in childhood Whatever caused the original fear is replaced by something else and that something is the phobia The problem that confronts the psychiatrist is the proper relating of the phobia to the real underlying fear, the unmasking of the real problem A good example is a widely quoted case of Freud's. A lit- tle boy he called Hans wanted the undivided love of his mother and wanted to eli- minate his father as a rival for her love This is not un- common. Hans' natural response was guilt about his feelings toward his father and fear of what his father would do to him for this. The anxiety provoked by this situation resulted in two phobias He was afraid of open spaces and afraid of horses Both enabled him to stay in- doors close to his mother. The horse was a displacement of his fear of his father, the horse representing the masculine father figure. Be- ing afraid of horses then made it possible for him to tolerate his father in the house without unreasonable fear This may give you an idea of how dif- ficult it is for a person to un- ravel the real dynamics of phobias and their meaning without professsional help. Some tranquilizer medications can be used to help temporarily in anxiety situations, including phobias, but they are only temporary help at best. Prfessional help is usually indicated not just to unmask the real underlying fear, but facing the true villain that has provoked the problem. Obviously, if the problem is so important to a person's psyche that it had to be camouflaged, it is not an easy problem for the person to cope with, and it usually takes quite some time to significant- ly resolve it.

The LPG mixture may be mostly propane or mostly butane. The basic propane molecule is a linkage of three atoms of carbon and eight atoms of hydrogen. At ordinary temperatures it forms an in- visible, flammable gas. Under pressure, propane gas becomes a liquid fuel that can be stored and transported in heavy containers. Each sturdy container has a valve which can be turned to allow the contents to escape. The freed propane is released from pressure and immediately turns into a jet of fuel gas. Other supplies of propane are used in the manufacture of a long list of unlikely products It is one of the in- visible ingredients in the an- tifreeze that protects auto engines during severe weather There is propane in acetone, which is used to clean paint brushes. Propane plays many roles in the manufacturing of modern plastics. In most of these fan- tastic recipes, heat and pressure are used to combine liquid or gaseous propane with various other hydrocarbons. These small molecules may be joined to make larger ones. But in many plastic-making recipes, the small hydrocarbon molecules are broken apart, reshaped and strung together in long chains Man-made chain molecules are used to make some of our favorite plastics. For ex- ample, propane is used in making vinyl, a popular plastic used in floor coverings and chair covering material, in waterproof material for making raincoats and dozens of other useful substances A few years ago, most of our propane supply was used as fuel Nowadays, more and more is used to manufacture plastics Deposits of natural gas are trapped below with some of our deposits of petroleum Propane can be extracted from both natural gas and petroleum. Often it is ex- tracted with butane and the two are compressed to become the liquid fuel we call LPG. For making plastics, pure propane may be separated from the numerous hydrocarbon chemical found in precious petroleum Questions asked by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
