CUMULONIMBUS Andv sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Bruce Vandewater age 11, of Marcy New York for his question What is a cumulonimbus cloud1' No two clouds are alike and what s more they change from moment to moment You would think that naming and classifying them is downright impossible Nevertheless, the job has been done An English school teacher made a start by sorting cloud types into three classes Later extras were added to his original terms and one cloud type was named the cumulonimbus A cumulonimbus is a stupendous cloud that comes with spectacular lighting effects and resounding orchestration It tends to build up on sultry summer days and when it reaches its full fury, sensible people scurry for shelter It is, of course a thunderhead cloud that becomes a thunderstorm ac- companied by lightning and roaring thunder Way back in 1803 Luke Howard sorted the various clouds into three main types In those days meteorologists did not know a great deal about the nature and forma- tion of clouds so ne gave them names that seemed to suit what they looked like Howard was a school master and he used names derived from Latin words that could be un- derstood by scholars of deferent countries The term stratus means a flat layer Stratus clouds are those that hang in flat curtains across the sky Often the) are glowering grey ramclouds, though this fact was not noted at the time The term cirrus meana curl Cirrus clouds are those thin wispy White curls that drift high in he sky Often they catch the long slating rays of the rising or setting sun and reflect them in splendid colors The term cumulus" means a heap Surely it is a suitable name to describe those fluffy white cauliflower clouds that drift across a blue summer sky Ah but these in- nocent looking cumulus clouds can pile up in a heap and become a rowdy cumulonim- bus 111 ABNER I he three basic terms describe more or less what the three major cloud types look like Later, meteorologists wanted names that describe more about how various cloud types are likely to behave themselves Two extras were added "Alto" means that the cloud is fairly high above the ground "Nim- bus means that a cloud is likely to shed rain For example altostratus clouds are flat layers high in the sky They may look like thin gauzy veils of pale blue or grey and sometimes their fine particles reflect halos around the sun Nimbostratus clouds are flat grey layers heavy with rain Altocumulus clouds are high flying heaps of bulg- ing white mist On sultry summer days they pile up in a huge flat-topped thunderhead alias a cumulonimbus The 'cumulo part of this weatherman's term means that the cloud was formed from a heap of summery cumulus clouds The "nim- bus means that the turbulent monster is likely to ram which it surely does No men- tion is made of its dramatic sound and lighting effects But a cloud of this type is a mighty little storm, teeming with tur- bulent energy Its wild winds, contrasting pockets of warm and cool, light and heavy air are sure to generate flashes of lightning and claps of rolling thunder Fun with figures By J A H HUNTER V ou know those crazy mod belts we bought9 said Dan Last night I noticed we'd sold only 26 of them, so I cut the price from 95 to 99 Carol nodded A good idea but that s a heck of a dis- count Sure but it s paid off

potassium is' My doctoi tells me I am low in it and tells me to eat lots of bananas and drink orange juice What othei food is helpful9 What does it do to your body' Dear Reader Potassium is one of the basic chemical elements Everything we know is made up of chemical elements Such as hydrogen carbon sodium potassium chlorine zinc lead gold and so on There are a little over 100 elements Our entire body is made of combinations of these chemical elements "so are our household furniture buildings automobiles etc It is this fact that amuseb me when someone tells me that something is harmful because it is a chemical for exam- ple a given ingredient in a lood Everv thing we know is a chemical This is true whether its part of a plant pait of an animal distilled water spring water purified water medicine poison organic food a food additive or thing else you might want to mention In the tluid part of the the water in the bloodstream and outside of the cells con- tains a small amount of sodium which is an element and is the same sodium ele- ment that we have in ordinary table salt called sodium chloride We have about the same amount of sodium salt in our watei as exists in sea water Inside the cell membrane we have relatively little sodium and instead, we have potassium which can oc- cur as a salt called potassium chloride Both sodium and potassium bJong to the same group of chemicals and have a number of similar t haractenstics When the body retains too much sodium we tend to re- tain excess fluid and this can cause edema swelling and 0 t h c i problems Many medicines are used to eliminate sodium through the and v.ith it eliminate the ac umulation ot water Some ot these medicines also eliminate potassium and then lose potassium trom the (ells In older to maintain good health one needs a normal amount ot potassium inside the cells These chemicals are netessan lot normal function ot the cells The heart muscle wont contract normally or act noimalh it have a deficients in potassium If have too much potassium the electrical activiU ol the heait mav even be stopped There is a proper balance of almost thing in the body and this includes sodium and potassium Potassium as a salt is commonly used as a salt substitute lor people who need to avoid sodium deticiencv ot either sodium or potassium can cause a lot of vague symp- toms including excessive fatigue A. large glass of 01 angc ]uicc three times a day will usually provide about the same amount ot potassium as ptcbcubcd in most medical conditions Orange juice is piobabh the best natural soui c c of potassium and con tains considerably more potassium per weight than do bananas and most other hints In general howevei the linits are an excellent source ol potassium I usually tavor instructing people to dunk three large glasses of oiange juice a if they need idditional potassium in their inlame unless of course there is some medical reason why they can t use orange juice GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

After South had shown a big hand, North's technically correct response was three diamonds, to show a positive response with a diamond suit. However, he elected to respond two no trump, showing at least 8 points and, in theory, a bal- anced hand This set the stage for the misunderstand- ing that was to follow South intended his three club rebid as an inquiry for a four -card major suit' North read the bid as natu- ral, showing a long club suit. Accordingly, he checked on aces and, when his partner claimed possession of all four he leaped to seven clubs. Mystified by the pro- ceedings, South decided to turned out to be a very fortunate decision West led the ten of spades, covered by the jack and king and won by the ace Tho rather unhappy at the fact that he was playing in a 3-3 fit, declarer realized that, if the cards were favor- ably distributed, he might get home For his plan to succeed, it was vital that both the hearts and dia- m o n d s divided evenly Therefore, declarer led a heart to the jack, cashed the jack of spades and returned to his hand with the ace of diamonds On the ace, king and queen of hearts, declarer discarded two spades and a diamond from dummy Next came the king of diamonds and a diamond ruff with the three of clubs When this stood up, declarer had nine tricks m the bank The ace of clubs was the tenth trick The last three tricks consist- ed of a high crossruff of de- clarer's two spades and dummy's remaining dia- mond, and the grand slam was home Note that 13 tricks can be made only in the 3-3 club fit As the cards he, no opening lead or defense can set sev- en clubs' IF I WENTAUAK', PO THINK by torn If. ryan LEAPIN' LINOTYPES!
