Missouri, for her question How do we see colors? When the light is bright enough, our eyes see the scenery as a moving picture in lull color They can focus themselves to show the small letters on a printed page. Out- doors they can extend our vi- sion to show us distant moun- tains or the moon and the stars in the sky They can do any of these things in a split they perform their work automatically, without waiting for orders from our conscious minds Light and electricity are two forms of energy. The secret of vision lies in translating the energy of light into the energy of electricity. The energy ot light pulses along in an assortment of longer and shorter' wavelengths. When its wavelengths are separated, they become visible as the spectrum colors of the rain- bow The wavelengths are separated when light falls on different objects. Some sur- faces bounce back short wavelengths that show the blue rays, other objects reflect the longer red rays. The scenery around us reflects the energy of light in a multitude of different colors These different wavelengths enter the round black pupil, which is the win- dow of the human eye They fall on the retina, which is a sensitive screen covering the back and side walls in the eveball This is where the iniiaculous job of translating lightwaves into electrical im- pulses is done. The retina screen is crowd- ed with sensitive nerves with libers leading to larger and still larger nerve cables that run through the skull to the brain Behind each of the nerve fibers on the retina is a sensitive light detecting cell The cell and its nerve work together to translate a wavelength ol light into an electric impulse and trans mit it to the brain. The human eve has two types ol these light sensitive cells The cones are rather squat cells and millions of them are crowded toward the center of the retina The rods are taller cells and millions of them are crowded around the sides and edges of the retina. Only the cone cells are able to detect the colors of the different wavelengths ol light They are stimulated' when millions of pinpoints of light come through the pupil and fall upon the central part of the retina Then millions of cones respond in a split second Kach translates a color wavelength into an electrical its at- tached nerve fiber relays the coded signal to the brain. In a split second, the brain sorts multitudes of these signals from the cones and assembles them into a color picture of the scenery. The color detecting cones work continuously when the light is bright or fairly bright They shut down when the light grows dim Then the rod cells take over the job of relaying signals te the brain TheV can- not work in total darkness and they do not perceive colors. But they manufacture a biochemical called visual purple This strengthens shadowy outlines and helps us to side-step the furniture in a dimly lighted room Goren on Bridge Lawrence Lamb M.D. BY CHARLES H.

Most tapeworms don't cause significant symptoms This is surprising since a beef tapeworm may be from five to 10 yards long Rarely the worm mav block the duct lhal drains the pancreas or even block the opening to the appendix and cause appen- dicitis The proper method of prevention is eating meat free ol infestation and properly conked One should avoid eating raw or rare meal in areas where the beef is m- lected with tapeworm larvae: or the areas where the beef t.ipeworm is prominent This includes Mexico.

"But if you want to know you can figure out the prices yourself If the shirt had been 75 more it would have two thirds of the total cost, but if the tie had cost me less it would have been just a quarter of the total."
