Junfor tdfrot* Qui* on. LONGEST WALL QUESTION: What is the longest wall' in the world? ANSWER: The Great Wall of China is the longest wall ever built. It stretches 1,500 miles along the Mongolia-China border—or equal to half the distance across the United States. This jrfaantic wall is 22 feet high and tapers from a width of 20 feet at.the bottom to about 15 feet at the top. Towers 30 to 40 feet high are built into the wall every 200 to 300 yards. The sides of the wall are made of bricks and blocks of granite. The top is paved with bricks set in lime and forme a pathway along which people can walk. The Chinese started building the Great Wall about 200 B. C. to keep the northern Tartar tribes from invading. The original wall was a crude affair of clay. The present wall was completed about 1300 A. D. Thousands of Chines* toiled for 10 years to finish it, and hundreds died under the strain. The wall Is considered a remarkable engineering feat because of the rough, mountainous terrain through which much of it winds. Much of the wall is still In good condition today. FOR YOU TO DO: Next time you go to • beach, build a sand medal of the Great Wall. ($10 for this Idea goes to Kathy Paria of San Leandro, Calif. What's yours?

Not many people can remember when a 16-year-old went in the garage and came out with • lawnmower. It is rude for a young person to completely ignore adults, especially those kind enough to chaperon parties.
