M,> A fZfeXU PATRIOT. A POUNDIKS PATHBR,,, Andy sends a 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Cathy Elizabeth Woods, 10, of Timmonsville, S.C. for her question: What is an alpine glacier? Strictly speaking, an alpine glacier is a valley glacier.

WOI/ J *q t ,8T t W C H*0<f dl nun valleys are long ditches, either in the level plains or at the feet of tall mountains. It is true that mo'st of the valleys we know are of this type. But mountain climbers know that there are numerous valleys high among the lofty peaks of the mountains. As a rule, the steep sides of the pointed peaks are grooved with deep canyons and gorges. There are more of these lofty mountain valleys between one jagged peak and the next. This is where we find most of the world's valley glaciers. Some people call them alpine glaciers because there are so many of them among the steep-sided peaks of the Alps in central Europe. At least 1,200 alpine-valley glaciers have been counted in the Alps. There are more of them in our lofty northwestern mountains, especially in Alaska, and others in the Andes of Peru. There are also valley glaciers in Tibet between the mighty peaks of the high Himalayas. Glacial ice is actually a rocky mineral, but it is very weak and fragile. Any glacier that is 200 to 300 feet thick cannot support its own weight. It cracks and bends and moves somewhat like a lazy river — in fact, a valley glacier is actually a frozen river. The slope of the valley gorge guides it downhill. In the Alps, some of the glaciers creep down at a rate of 1 foot a day. When summer comes to Al'aska, some of the valley glaciers glide downhill at 40 feet a day or even faster. Ice melts when the temperature rises above freezing point. In torrid and temper- ate zones, the weather is warm high up the mountain slopes. This causes the lower tips of valley glaciers to start melting far up in the mountains. Chilly streams and icy waterfalls come gushing down to the base of the slopes and wander away as rivers. In polar regions, through much of the year even the lowlands are icy cold. There the valley glaciers stay frozen and spread their ice over the lowlands. They form piedmont glaciers, shaped like covered frypans. The valley glaciers that feed them look like panhandles. All glaciers have rough,: cruel surfaces cracked with,' treacherous crevasses, some* times several hundred feet deep. But valley glaciers are beautiful to behold, especially when seen from afar. They hang like white streamers between the dark rugged peaks. Feathery fingers of ice come down to join them from smaller gorges higher up the slopes. Send questions on postal card to Ask Andy, P.O.
