-Junior Editor Quiz on- CLOCKS coulton QUESTION: How does a clock work? ASWER: For a clock's hands to move, there must be some power driving it. Many clocks these days are run by electricity. But many others, the ones which go tick- tock, derive their power from a coiled spring which is inside (A in our picture). When you wind the clock, you are tightening this spring; as it unwinds, it puts out power which runs the clock. The spring is mounted on a large wheel whose cogs cause other wheels, connected with the clock's hands, to move very slowly. A balance wheel, turning back and forth,'keeps the hand's movements steady and prevents ths spring from unwinding too fast. A clever little device, the escapement (B), allows just the right amount of power to get through. A swinging bar has a foot which brings up with a sharp "tick" against a foot of a wheel below. Then it lifts up and allows the wheel to move just a little. There is another tick, or tock, as the other foot of the bar strikes against another tooth of the wheel. Tick, tock — the movement goes steadily on, driving the hands which tell the time. (Mary Dyke of Elkhart, Ind., wins a prize for this question.
