Today's winner is: Christine Jone, 11, La J o 11 a, Calif. A thermometer is simply an instrument for measuring heat. Your finger is also an instrument for measuring heat. You can usually tell by touching which of two objects is warmer. But a The two scales that are usec on thermometers are the Fahr enhcit scale and the Centigrade scale. In most English-speaking countries, the Fahrenheit scale is used more frequently. On this scale, the boiling point of water is at 212 degrees, and the freezing point of water is at 32 degrees. The space in between is divided into 180 equal parts (grad uated into 180 degrees). On the Centigrade scale, t h e freezing point of water is at zero and the boiling point at 100 degrees, and the space between graduated into 100 equal parts.

It tells you the temperature by what heat does to mercury. Heat and cold cause materials to change. In most cases, when the same temperature is applied to the material, it changes in the same way. When heat is applied to mercury, it always expands at the same rate. So by seeing how much the mercury has expanded, we can tell how much heat was applied to it — or what the temperature is. Now if the mercury is placed in a glass tube and warmed, the mercury expands. It has no place to go but up the tube. And the mercury always rises to the same point on the tube when the same amount of heat is applied. Now all you have to do is put a scale on the tube so you can read exactly where the mercury is — and you have a thermometer. In the modern mercury thermometer, the hole in the tube is so tiny that it is often finer than a human hair! There is a glass bulb at the bottom of the tube, holding the mercury. The bulb and tube arc filled with just "the right amount of mercury for the range of temperature the thermometer will be used for. The tube is sealed at the top in such a way that there is either a perfect vacuum there, or a gas such as nitrogen. When heat is applied, the mer- curly expands up the tube. When lieat is taken away, the mercury contracts or "drops." Customer: Gee, you can have it for nothing! Martha: Does your car always make this much noise? Bill: No, only when it's running, THE SCIENCE BOX INSERT CUT HERE Blow up a baloon and tie it with a string about 3 feet long, Let the water come out from a faucet and swing the baloon into the stream of water. Instead of pushing the balloon away, the water stream svill hold the balloon. The reason is that the rapid water stream produces an area of low pressure between itself' and t h e side of the baloon it touches. The atmosphere behind the baloon and behind the stream holds them together. Answer to yesterday's Word Puzzle: Home, Hole, Hale, Halt, Salt. Win the Britannica World Atlas or Yearbook of Events.

The reason, says the book "Women and Children in the USSR," is that the number of men under 35 years of age exceeds the number of women.
