We might start with another question: Why isn't everybody capable of using both hands equally well? Why should there be a right or left handedness? It seems that just about everything about oar body is asymmetrical - that is, not evely balanced. Let's start with your face. If you look in the mirror, you will see the eyebrow, forehead, cheak, mouth, eye, and ear on the right side of your face is a bit diferent from the left side. In ninety -six per cent of all people the right half of the face is more developed. Our legs also differ in strength and in our ability to use them. In fac, our whole body is this way, not symmetrical. And so this holds true for the brain too. While the brain is symmetrical in its structure, the two halves of the brain do not function equally. It is believed that the left half of the brain is predominant over the right. Now the nerve tracts which connect the brain with the rest of the body go from one side of the spinal cord to the other at the level of the neck, and they come out on the opposite side of the body. So the right half of the brain supplies the left half of the body, and vice versa. So if the left half of the brain predominates, it makes the right half of the body more skilled, able to function better, And this is what makes our right hand our "better" hand - at least according to this theory. For there are many theories to explain such things as right handedness, and this is only one of them. But it is the one most accepted. By the way, experts on the subject say that a child who is left-handed should not be forced to become right-handed. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Jim: Does your girlfriend know much about cars? Jack: No. She thinks you cool (lie motor by stripping gears! Fatty: Only cheese for lunch? Mother: Yes. The chops caught i'ire and it spread to the apple pic, so 1 had to use the soup to put the fire out. WORD PUZZLE N WHAT ABOUT SALLY?..TELL ME.' iTiS THE DAY AFTER A DISASTROUS FIRE.. .
