Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LE1HBRIDGE HERAID Wednujtloy, September 57, 1972_______ Icebergs Andy sends a complete 20- volumo set o[ the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Jimmy Relchow, ago 11, of Milwau- kee, Wisconsin, for his ques- tion: Does the Antarctic have Arc- tic typo Icebergs? The Arctic icebergs ore mere puppies compared with the mighty monsters that drift around the. Antarctic Ocean. Both types are hard masses of frozen snow, eventually doom- ed to melt their fresh water into the salty sea. Both are formed by the same laws of nature that govern weather, glaciers and ocean currents. But the geography of the two opposite poles a lot of difference to the size shapes of their icebergs. The bergs that drift south- ward from the Arctic tend to be sculptured like fantasli c s- tles with turreted spires. They rnsy be more than 100 feet thick and several hundred feet wide and of course only one ninth of the ice floats above the water. But a medium-sized south-polar iceberg may be 100 miles long and feet tliick. A grand daddy m a y be as big as Wisconsin and contain enough frozen fresh water to take care of a city's Deeds for a whole year. Throughout the year, both po- lar regions get the same amount of solar radiation. But geography makes a difference to their climates and their ice- bergs. The North Pole is under the Arctic Sea and world- wide ocean currents make the winters milder. The South Pole is hi the middle of a massive land mass and continental cli- mates are more extreme. The Antarctic summer is too short and too cool to recover from the long bitter winter. It ar- rives around December for a stay of BIX to eight weeks and only a few days are above freezing. Meantime, at the North Pole, December freezes a few feet of winter ice on the Arctic Ocean. When spring comes, it cracks apart and drifts away in flat- topped ico floes. However, gla- ciers slide down the steep slopes of Greenland and other Avctic mountains. When they meet the shore, jagged chunks of ice break off and drift away and become the grim, lowering icebergs that menace the ship- ping lanes of the North Atlan- tic. All glaciers must move be- cause ice is a fragile mineral. When it becomes about 200 feet thick It must flow, slowly- slowly in a direction dictated geography. The Antarctic .ce cap is more than a mile thick and covers five million square miles. It must creep outward from the center and heave over the costal moun- tains to meet the sea. Sometimes massive shelves of glacial ice push out over the water. They are pounded by tides, waves and winds. The ice crunches and cracks and eventually slabs break free. Dozens of these gi- gantic icebergs drift on and on around the Antarctic Ocean. The strong, south polar winds drive a strong current east- ward, circling around the Ant- arctic Ocean. The enormous icebergs are swept around anc around the Antarctic Circle. In the north polar region, the smaller icebergs are captured by currents that sweep them away into warmer oceans where they soon melt.

Dear Dr. Lanin Please tell me how alcohol will affect the ;ver? Dear Reader In large imounts, alcohol Is a toxin or poison. It has been dempnstrat- xi by miscroscopic studies that he cells of the heart can be damaged by drinking alcohol. Other cells in the body can also be damaged. Alcohol not only can damage liver cells but t can affect their normal fune- ion. Some people who drink ots of alcohol do not eat an adequate diet and particularly lave a deficiency of vitamin B-l or thiamine. This further 1? A BOY NEVER SEN15S A GIRL ROUERS, ROBS HIMSELF Or ONE OF THE GREAT JOV5 Or LIFE... contributes to damage of the actual liver cells. For years there was a hot debate in medical circles whe-> ther the alcohol alone could! damage to the liver or whether it had to be associated with a thianune deficiency. It really doesn't make any differ- ence which factor is the most important. The ultimate result of drinking too much for many people is (hmiaged liver cells which are replaced hy scar tis- sue causing a condition called cirrhosis of the liver. In severe degrees eventually liver failure can ensue. The damaged liver loses its ability to destroy excess amounts of estrogen, the fe- male hormone. Estrogen is nor- mally produced in men as well as women. When excess amounts accumulate because of liver disease men experience a degree of feminization which can affect their sexual capa- city. There basically isn't any- thing -good that alcohol has ever been demonstrated to do for the liver, the brain or the heart. The only medical use alcohol has is as a sedative or tran- quilizer.
