By A. LEOKUM If the camera you use today ' werV the invention of one man. I . it' would be a remarkable achievement indeed! Photog- raphy is the result of many dis- coveries covering hundreds of i years. Before we consider those . - discoveries, let's recall briefly .. what makes photography' work. Photography is possible be- cause of the action of light' on certain substance thai n; ave been chemically-prepared. For example, the chemica silver nitrate reacts to light by turn ing black. So on the film in a camera is an emulsion of silver particles and gelatin. The lensjthe Dominican Republic, filled of the camera lets in light and. the country with statues to him-focuses it on the film. TheUelf. He had more than 3.000 grains or silver particles that have been exposed to light become changed. They become the dark part of "the " Tilm --'nega- .tive Later; the other gramsiTru true.

From the 11th to the 16th century, there was something known as the "camera ob-scura." It just showed an image on paper which could be traced by hand-In 1568. Daniello Bar-baro fitted the camera obscura with aliens to sharpen the image. " j In 1727. a man called Johann Schulze discovered that . light caused nitrate of silver to Change color. In 1802, Thomas Wedgwood and Humphrey Davy were able to make prints on paper coated with silver nitrate, but they couldn't make these prints .permanent. In 1835. a man caljed William Talbot made the first permanent prints, and the first enlargements. In 1839, Louis Daguerre developed a new process for making images on a' silver Plate. 4 And sofon and so on. At'ydu can see, each step in the mak ing of film and in the camera itself, was Improved by differ ent people over the years. The first box camera, which really started making photography popular, was put on the market by the Eastman Company . in 1888. ?. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. Why is it wrong to whisper?

We wrote out some columns, of addition, some subtraction, and some multiplica dropping West's ten and continued with a small club. When West showed out, South put in dummy's nine. Had East taken this trick, the contest would have been over, for declarer- would now have been In position to discard his small hearts on North'i established . club suit. East was fully aware that the moment of decision was at hand, and he paused to consider his prospects. If he won the frick, his only chance to , set the contract hinged on an. attempt to cash -the king of diamonds, for South was surely marked with the ace of hearts to warrant his strong bidding.. However, if declarer had a second diamond, he would surely have finessed the. queen on the opening lead. East reached the conclusion that the only rear opportunity was the prospect of finding his partner with the jack of hearts, Jin which case there was a chance to take two tricks in that suit In order to put his judgment to the test, Cast per mitted dummy's nine to hold. for by surrendering his club trick be prevented the run of the suit. Declarer cashed the king of clubs and ruffed himself in with another club. Since the North hand lacked an entry to cash the established long card In the suit. South switched his attentions to hearts. He cashed the ace and then led another heart to the queen. He was doomed to disappointment when the king turned up in the East hand. A heart return per mitted West to cash the setting trick in that suit. iiwpqwFw - wi imii'l'i.'H . u..::i;.i;ti u: i:tn.f.t:t,.i.n; 1 1 236-471 tion.
