After stopping the pill do menstrual periods resume normally within the next ,10 or so days? 2.) If one is in her late 40s, could it cause men- strual cycles when irregularity or cessation would normally oc- cur. 3.) If a woman stops tak- ing the pills and doesn't have periods, is this an indication of menopause? 41 Will going off (he pill induce a menopause ef- How does a barometer work? It's fun to ask a barometer what tomorrow's weather will be like. The useful little gadget looks very complicated. But when you get two things into your head and can understand how it works. One is easy, but the other may be a bit hard to believe. The easy one reminds you of tipping on a seesaw when you go up, your pal on the other end goes down. The other one is about the air. Just be- cause vou can't see it, you may think lhat the filmy sluff does not weigh anything at all. Tile Iriilh is lhat it does. It may he hard to believe, but even a shoe- box of air has a little feathery weight. About 300 years ago, some thoughtful people were curious about how much the air weighs. So they invented barometers to measure it. A good way lo mea- sure weights is with a pair of balance scales. They work very much like a seesaw. When you put a weight on each side, the umn of air, an inch square reaching from the ground to the very top of the atmosphere. Tire first barometers used silvery liquid mercury to weigh a sam- ple of air and so do many modern barometers. The inven- tor used a small dish and a glass tube with on end open and the oilier sealed closed. He poured some mercury into the dish nnd used some more to paiily fill the lube. Then he put his thumb over the tube, turned it upside down and set the open end under the mercury in Ihe dish without spilling a drop. Surprise! All the mercLtry did not run down Ihe lube, because the air pressed down on top of the mercury in the dish. The level of mercury in the tube ex- actly balanced the weight of the air sample. Another surprise a ladder of lines beside the tube showed that the level of mer- cury rises and falls. This proved that the weight of the air sam- ple must change, day by day and even hour by hour. People soon noticed that these changes chance (Q function normally. Of: heavier one goes down and the course, you could get pregnant: jigger one goes up. This tells m atmospheric pressure very while you are off the pill. you which weight is lighter otten predict changes in the 2. Yes, some pills can cause; 'anci wra-ctl js heavier. If both of 1 "'eather. But thai, fays Andy, is feet" in her (irregularity and but Dear Reader Actually, birth control pills are just combinations of the hormones a woman normally prnduces. One of these hormones (proges- terone) is secreted during preg- nancy and has the effect of pre- venting any more ova from be- ing released, thus preventing a second pregnancy in the al- ready pregnant uterus. A lol of the dangers ascribed to birth control pills are less likely to occur with the pill than they are with a pregnancy. I. Most women do resume normal menstrual cycles when the pill is stopped, but since this is a complex balance be- tween the pituitary gland under the brain and the reproductive organs, it doesn't always hap- pen. To keep the total glandu- ar system in balance, some doctors stop the pill at inter- vals to give the system a a woman lo contmue to have( u-ejgh exactly the same, periods. This isn't necessarily j neither side goes iip or down, bad since it is an indication of Tne lwo gjg evenly bal- cyclic hormone ac- anced. the answer lo another question. Our modem mercury barom- j eters are finer and better, but tivity similar to that occurring i Thc inventors did not vse they still work Ihe same old before the menopause. 3. Failure to menslurate af- ter the pill is stopped can mean the pituitary or master gland isn't producing enough hor- mone to stimulate the female organs. It does not guarantee a person that she is not still ovulating and won't get preg- nant. Don't assume that just because you are not menstruat- ing, you can't get pregnant. Many woman can still get preg- nant for at least two years after their periods have stopped. 4. Mcnopausal symptoms are sometimes prevented by giving one of the birth control pills since these provide the normal hormones of the female. So yes, in some women, stopping the pill may result in the meno- pausal symptoms. If symptoms occur, the doctor may decide it is best to continue the pill or to use some other medicine. During a woman's normal child hearing years, female hormones are not all bad. Esto- gcn helps prevent high choles- terol and fatty deposits in the i tific icehouse in hope that future arteries that cause heart dis- pair of scales exactly like this ray. Our aneroid barometer weigh the air. But they used uses no mercury. It is a metal box with the air laken out and a spring sealed inside. Light air pressure lets the top of Uie the same idea. Their barom- eters balanced the weight of (he air with some silvery liquid mercury in a glass tube. The air in a room weighs just a few pounds. However, the whole globe is wrapped in a huge blanket of air that reaches up hundreds of miles. This is the atmosphere. It weighs billions of tons and it presses down on spot of land and sea. Us weight is called atmospheric pressure. This is logical be- cause it means Uie weight of the atmosphere pressing down on the earth. A barometer weighs just a box bulge up; heavy air dents it clown. The slightest change moves the delicate spring in- side. The spring moves gears and levers that relay the changes to a moving needle on the outside of the box, Questions asKea by cnlMria of Herald readers snould be mailed to Ask Anrty, P 0.

I The bidding presented in the diagram occurred at one Uble. North opened with one Gpadc and Soulh responded with two clubs. North's hand to 20 points in support of clubs [counting three points for the sinulelon] find he made a game forcing Jump shift rcbid of three Soulh temporized with four clubs and North now cue bid the ace of diamonds. At this point, South gave n preference lo four spades. There was little point lo this call. Inasmuch as South intends playing a club con- tract and his partner has Indicated fircat strength and shown controls In the olhcr suiLs, we favor a direct hid of six clubs over lour diamonds. This will serve to reassure North regarding the solidity of Soulh's club holding, so that if North has enough top on the side, he may be in position to go all the way. Over four spades, NorLh gave a delayed club raise and South carried on lo slam, The bidding had provided West with all the information he required to find the killing defense. North surely had at least four and possibly five spades for his opening bid in that suit and South'? prefer- ence presumably showed Ihree spades. It was not hard to visualize East with, at most, a singleton since West had five himself. He opened the ace of spades and con- tinued with a small spade which East ruffed (or the selling trick. At the other table the bidding proceeded in the same mannei1 until North's cue bid of four diamonds. South, there, jumped directly to six clubs which closed tho auction. West did not have the benefit of knowing that the declarer had length in spades. It appeared more likely that South would be short in that suit and that laying down Ihe ace of spades might serve only lo establish needed discards for his op- ponent. In an attempt to build up a fast trick for his side, West led a small diamond. Norlh the ace, South drew trump and conceded a trick lo the ace of spades, Tho score (or a nonvulncrablo slam in tournament play ii 920 points 1500 for the slnm and for gamel which with Ihe SO point set scored at the other table by Soulh's team- mates produced a 971) point profit on the deal. the project for providing protec- tion of the rocks "has been a very important aim since the very beginning, because we realize these arc unique and irreplacable sam- ples and it may be years before we go back to these places.
