Have you ever seen a slide rule or tried to work with one? At first it seems so complicated that you think you have to be a genius to operate it. But once it's explained, and you have a little practice (and a certain amount of knowledge of mathematics) you will find the slide rule a tremendous help in doing problems. With a slide rule, the user can multiply, divide, extract roots of numbers, and perform many other mathematical operations in just a few second's time! The slide rule looks something like a ruler. There is a sliding scale along its center, with fixed scales above and below. Surrounding this there is a small transparent slider with a vertical hairline. This is called the index glass and helps in reading from one scale to the other. The slide rule uses "logarithms," and we are not going to try to explain logarithms at this time. Let's just say that to multiply a pair of numbers we simply add their logarithms, and the slide rule does this automatically. If this example doesn't tell you very much about a slide rule, why not ask your teacher to get a slide rule in class and have everyone learn how it works? For a slide rule to come into being, there first had to be logarithms, and this form of computing was invented by a Scotsman called John Napier in 1614. Then in 19620, a man called Edm u n d Gunter plotted the logarithms on a 2-foot straight line. The next year, William Oughtred, used two of these lines sliding by each other, and the first step in the invention of the slide rule was taken. The first known slide rule in which the slide worked between two fixed parts was made by Ro- bert Bissaker in 1654. It was such a help in making calculations that it became quite popular in England during the 18th century. The first of the modern slide rules was made by Amedec Mannheim, a French army officer, in 1859. The way he arranged the scales on his slide rule is si ill used on most slide rules in the 20th century. I hope all of this has made you curious enough about the slide rule to try to find out how it works for yourself. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Customer: Are you sure one bottle will cure a cold?

LITTLE LIT • MM* A fat person is a calorie fighter who spends too much time with the enemy. A W«uk Spot CATANIA, Sicily OB - There has always been a weak spot in the earth's crust along Northeast Sicily where volcanic Mt. Etna rises 10,000 feet above the Mediterranean. Prof. Alfredo Ri|tman, director of the Catania Institute of Vul- canology says Etna reared up hundreds of thousands of years ago over the cones of a whole series of previous voicanos there. Part of the cone of the last one before the present Etna can be seen in a lava valley party way down the present mountain slope.
