One Way To Come Out OK When You Ignore Your Father's Advice . . . Wins $20 For Science Project * * * Mark Payne, a student in Algona' s Middle School, is $20 better off today because he didn't follow his father's advice. The story started when Mark, a seventh grader, wanted to get a science class project together for entry into science fairs. He decided to construct a seismograph, an instrument used to detect and record the force and duration of earth tremors or quakes. -'JUNK IT'- Mark's father, Jerry was skeptical of the project's chances of winning prizes. "Dad said it wouldn't have a chance," Mark explained. "He told me to junk it." But Mark stuck to his choice and went to work. That meant mounting the core of a toilet paper roll on top of the gears of 'a clock. The minute hand provided the power supply to rotate the toilet paper cylinder. He then wound some Carbon paper around the "cylinder 'and suspended (fr6m a spiral spring attached to a wooden frame) a screwdriver with its pointed end toward the cylinder. As the minute hand and cylinder revolved, a fine indentation was made on the carbon. If someone shook the table supporting the seismograph, the disturbance was duly recorded by movement of the screwdriver point on the carbon. - JUDGES IMPRESSED- The judges at the Hawkeye Science Fair in Des Moineswere impressed ... or enough so at least to award Mark a $20 prize in competition with other seventh grade entries. Mark said he kept the news quiet for one day before telling his father. Then he told him. "He couldn't believe it," Mark said. Mark is a student in Walt Reemtsma's science class. Another seventh grade science class is taught by none other than our doubting father . . . Jerry Payne. Dean's List Kathy Lallier of Algona and Mary Degen, LuVerne, freshmen students at Marycrest College, Davenport, have been named to the scholastic honors list for the semester ending in January. Kathy is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Lallier and Mary's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Robert G. Degen. for any formaUw«or nt«di, g«t th» !at«t itylti from . . DIAMOND'S Mark Payne (standing, front) represented Walt Reemtimo'i seventh grade science class well in The Hawkeye Science} Fair In Veterans Auditorium in Des Moines. He won $20 for hli working model of a seismograph. The model is between Payne and Reemstma above. When an outside force acts upon It, the suspended screwdriver registers its duration and strength by scratching on the carbon cylinder (toilet paper roll). In caie you're wondering, those are paper replicas of DNA moUculM hanging from the light fixtures. (Algona Pub.
