In the case of duplicate questions, the author of "Tell Me Why!" will select the winner. Today's winner is: CHRISTINE DOBRY, 13 Baltimore, Md. The igloo, or snow house, of the Eskimo does melt when the winter is over and the temperature rises. Which is why Eskimos live in the open in tents made of skin during the summer. But it is more than just cold weather that makes an igioo as solid as it is. We can see this when we look at how an igloo is built. First a trench is cut about 5 feet long and 20 inches deep in a newly made snowdrift. From the face of the trench the Eskimo cuts blocks with his bone knife. These are slightly concave so that they lean inward when set up on edge. A circle of blocks is laid, then shaved down so that the blocks form a narrowing spiral as you go up. Then a keystone is cut. This has edges wider above than below and it is dropped into the space at the top. All the cracks and crevices are filled in with soft snow. It takes only a couple of hours for an Eskimo to build s u c h an igloo. Of course, larger Igloos take more time. In parts of Labrador, igloos have been built that were 16 feet high and 70 feet across! These were used for festivals and special occasions. But back to our little Igloo. The Eskimo has finished his work -- and now the housewife takes over. She lights her blubber lamp and feeds it so that it gives off as much heat as possible. Then she closes the door with a block of ice and makes the igloo air-tight. The snow soon begins to melt. But because of the curve of the dome's roof it doesn't drip. Instead, it soaks gradually into the blocks so that they are nearly wet through. Then the woman puts out her lamp and opens the door. The intensely cold air rushes in, and in a few minutes the house is transformed into a dome of ice! It is now so strong that a polar bear could crawl all over the roof without breaking it in. As you might imagine, a solid structure like this is able to stand up quite well through the winter---until the heat of summer begins to melt it. * * iii FUN TIME Win a Britannica Junior for Writing About-"What My Country Can Teach The World" Do you feel there is something about your country that other nations might copy?
