Junior Editors Quiz on—— BASEBALL 'BOUNCE 1 QUESTION: What flives a baseball its "bounce?" ANSWER: The difference between a "live" baseball and a "dead" one, without much bounce, Is its rubber and cork center Inside the horsehide cover. The modern baseball Is bounder than the •Id—which helps the long hitters. Cork has many other uses, It is most familiar perhaps in the form of bottle stoppers. Because It Is very light and floats, life belts are often made of it. Shoe soles were made from It by the ancient Romans. • Cork comes from an evergreen oak which flourishes In Southern Europe and on the North African Coast. It is actually the outer layer of bark from the tree, which is stripped periodically, usually every 10 years. The stripping doesn't bother the cork oak, which lives to an age of about 150 years. FOR YOU TO DO: Get a cork from a bottle, see how light It is, how easily it floats in water—and how it bounces when dropped. It will bounce in unexpected directions because of its irregular shape.
