•Junior Editor Quiz on" WORDS IS ALSO HEELS OVER HEAt) QUESTION: Who named the somersault? ANSWER: A somersault, sometimes called somerset, is a movement performed by expert gymnasts or divers. You leap Into the air, making a kind of package of your body and spin around so your heels turn over your head, and then land on your feet. Spins like this were executed by the Greeks and Romans, who established centers for physical training called gymnasiums — this is where our modern word gymnasium comes from. The Romans appear to have named the somersault; it comes from two Latin words, supra, meaning above, and saultus, a leap. Our picture of a backward somersault dive shows the beginning of such a leap; you can see how well the old Latin words describe this graceful, exciting movement. Don't try such •omesaults unless you are a trained gymnast or diver. You can have fun doing the simple somersault on the ground shown below. But even here, it is best to have something soft under your head and body. (Kim Peterson of Superior, Wis., wins this week's grand prize of a 15-volume set of Compton's Picture Encyclopedia.
