Junior Editors Quiz on- SCIENCE QUIZ MAKtfRIENDS Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, Aug. 17, 1957 LITTLE LIX II is never good manner* for, two or three of a small group to: talk at length about a party others in the group were not invited to. Those who were not there are That dramatic pause is often the best part of the speech. bound to feel left out — at least out of the conversation. Choosing a topic of conversation that shuts out some members of a group is just plain rude. QUESTION: What is I.G.Y.? ANSWER: Do you know what it is like out in space? Do you know how the deep currents in the ocean flow? Do you know what effect the great storms on the sun have on people on earth? Neither do the scientists; but they're trying to find out tight this minute. Scientists from 64 nations are working together to learn all they can about the earth, inside and out, and what goes on In the air around it. They're giving the earth a checkup just like the doctor gives you from time to time. Only this checkup, which started July 1, is called 1. G. Y.—International Geophysical Year. It really will last V/i years because it will take that long to do the work. Scientists will be exploring and examining on the tops of mountains, in the depths of the sea and in the frozen Antarctic. Rockets will shoot high into the air. Probably the most exciting part will be throwing a man-made moon into outer space. This moon is actually a 20-inch ball fitted out with scientific instruments to radio back all kinds of information about space. What we learn may make it possible to travel in space one of these days. FOR YOU TO DO: Newspapers are carrying almost daily accounts on what scientists around the world are doing during International Geophysical Year. Look for these reports every day and you'll be surprised at how much you can learn about the earth. (Patricia Simpson of Richmond, Va., won $10 for this question.
