Today winner is; Andrea Mull, 10, Bethalto, III. . By A. LEOKUM When wo Ulk about places on tarth being "hot" of "cold," we an talking about "climate." And in general way all climate la determined by the heat of the sun. It I the heat of the tun that -warms the land, the oceans, nil the atmosphere. It la the heat of the sun that draws moisture .into the . atmosphere and thus makes rain possible. It Is the sun's heat that causes dif ferences In air pressure, which creates winds, and the son's heat and the winds together produce ocean currents. So la discussing climate k is Important to consider the sun's beating effect on any particular location. Now because the surface of the earth la curved, the beating effect of the sun Is greatest at the Equator and least at the poles. At the Equator, the rays from the sun strike the earth vertically. Above and below the Equatorial region, the rays strike the earth at an angle. or slantingly. This mesne that the regions above, and below the Equator, the Temperate) Zones, receive fewer rays from the sun than the same area would receive In the region of the Equator, 'the Tropical Zone. 'The other "regions of. the earth. In other words, receive less heat. When a ray of sunlight strikes the earth at an angle. It has to pass through mora atmosphere and so some of the beet Is absorbed by the ah and that's another reason the other tones receive leas beat. AD of this makes the region! of the Equator the honest re-j gicfi- on earth. . But we save been talking about what is call ed "solar climate," climate de pending only on the sun's heat There are many other factors. however, that enter Into the pic ture to decide what Is called . "physical climate, the actual climates found en earth. ' The most Important of these ether' factors are water. 'lend. and altitude. The waters of die oceans and Ocean currents, the existence of large rand areas. and the altitude of the land aO can combine to create different climates regardless of the location on earth, .'.. ; ,'-.--; . : That's why. at any particular time. It may be hotter at a point far from the Equator than It fa there though as region, the Equatorial to the hot test on earth. t e ' ;', C FUN TTME, , .7. The Riddle Bex .

V"T West epeaed the five of hearts and the Jack was plsyed from dummy which declarer overtook with the queen.

ANSWER; Certainly there is good reason for diet not only from the physiological standpoint but also from the Christian. Diet Is discipline and control, whereas Indulgence is a form of self satisfaction that displays almost no Chris - tian virtue. It Is regsrded in the Bible as sin to drtnk lcohol to the point of drunk-endness. At the same time, those who. are moat , "vocal about the drunkard will eat to excess. . Paul one said, "I keep my body In subjection, lest while I minister unto ethers I myself should be rejected.' Such discipline the Bible holds to be consistent with Christian life and service. Chrstanity la essentially the dominance of the lower passions and desires by the higher. Eating, aa enjoyable and pleasant as ft is, can become an enemy of deeply spiritual life. . And if the Bible bad nothing to say about such things, the average good doctor would Insist that moderation and dis 1 ' r AvmtahU etdutivtlj pt : J .' . .' .

South, proceeded to run the diamonds, but since, he only had' nine tricks four diamonds, two clubs, two hearts, and one spade he had to resort finally to the spade finesse. West had discarded two hearts and a club on the diamonds, retaining three hearts. When ht captured North's queen of spades with the king, he was able to cash three hearts and send declarer down to a two trick set Souths timing was faulty. Had he played the king of hearts from dummy on the opening lead in order to take an immediate spade finesse. West could clear the heart suit; however, when East gets in with the ace of ditmonds he it unable to reach his partner, and' South cannot be prevented from taking 10 tricks. Declarer requires et least two spade tricks to bring his total to 10, so that the finesse in that suit must be risked. Since South also has to drive out the ace of diamonds, it ap-. pears on the surface that be must find the king of spades favorably located. Declarer can improve his prospects by taking the spade finesse first, however, to cover the remote case where East has the ace of diamonds and la extremely short in hearts. By driving out West's potential entry ; card first before the hearts become established. South gives himself slightly better chance to eliminate the dinger hand from the play.' j cipline in such matters is a 'matter of good health. If you are a Christian, it becomes more meaningful for you because we are taught that the body is the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit (I Cor. 0: 19-N). .
