Junior Editors'Quii ort- THE FERRIS WHEEL QUESTION: What is the history of the Ferris wheel? * * * ANSWER: The Ferris wheel appeared on the amusement scene in 1893. It was built by George Ferris, a mechanical engineer of Galesburg, III., for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. The original wheel was a huge revolving wheel with cars for passengers, suspended on the wheel. The first wheel was much larger than the wheels of today. The wheel stood 268 feet high and carried 36 cars. Each of the cars had a capacity for 60 persons. After it was used at the Exposition in St. Louis in 1904, it was dismantled and sold for scrap metal. Ferris wheels now stand 40 to 50 feet high and have 12 to 16 two-person seats. The wheel is rotated through power derived from a gasoline engine. The Ferris wheel is the main attraction in the amusement sections of county fairs. It is also an important feature at amusement parks and traveling carnivals throughout the country. 4-21 (Meredith Kay Hoeling ojDe Ridder, La., wins aprizefor this question.

(AP) -- Gas experts say even a single cigarette could set off a fire that might destroy this tiny village where natural gas and water continues to spew from mudholes. "If we stay as lucky as we've been, and we've been damned lucky, we won't blow anybody up," said .Donald Bateman, a gas safety engineer with the Michigan Public Safety Commission. To minimize danger of an explosion, strict no-smoking rules were enforced by police around Williamsburg today. Rail traffic in the area also was halted because of fears a spark from steam engines could ignite the gas. The geysers, believed caused by underground gas pressure, have created numerous huge craters, including one that washed away part of a state highway. About 25 families have evacuated their homes. Dead fish littered the banks of Williamsburg Creek, a normally clear stream noted for its excellent trout fishing, after water from the mudholes flowed into the creek. Gov. William G. Milliken assigned David Jankins, deputy director of the Department of Natural Resources, to coordinate a survey of the damage caused by the geysers, which appeared Wednesday. Work crews for Amoco Pro* ductions, the drilling subsidiary of Standard Oil of Indiana, have started sinking holes around the area to relieve gas pressure. Amoco has 30 natural gas wells in the area. Stan Stocker, area superintendent for Amoco, denies his company is to blame for the craters. "So far as we know, the cause of the increased water flow in Williamsburg hasn't been determined," Stocker said Friday. "We have no evidence that our operations may be contributing to the problem. , "I do know that we have a water well not more than 100 yards from our rig and that it isn't bubbling over," Stocker said. Geologists say the gas comes from a gas field 7,000 feet un- relallve thereto: Thence North 90° 00' 00" East along Ihe North line of said Block 42, 270.00 (eel to the true point ol beginning: Thence continuing North 90° 00'00" Easl along the South Right ot Way line of Ninth Street, 691.00 feet to the Northeast corner (Nt Corn) of Block 40: Thence Soulh 00°00' 40" Easl, 490.00 feel lo ft point on Ihe Cenlerline of Eighth Street; Thence North 90° 00' 00" East along Ihe Cenlerline of Eighth Street, BD.OO Feel; Thence South 00° 00' 40" Easl, 530.61 feet to a point on the existing fence line; Thence Soulh 89° 22' 20" West, along Ihe existing fence tine 896.05 feel; Thence Norlh00°00' 40" Wesl, 855.43 Ft; Thence Norlh 90° 00' 00" Easl, 175.00 feet; Thence Norlh 00° 00' dQ" West, 1750.00 Feet to the True Point of Beginning.
