Without light we couldn't see the world around us, yet we still don't know exactly what light is! We know light is a form of energy. Its speed can be measured, the way it behaves is.known to us. We also know that white light is not a special kind of light —it is a mixture of all colors. We call this the specimen. We also know that color is not in the objects seen —it is in the light by which they are seen. A piece of green paper looks green because it absorbs all the colors except green, which it reflects to the eyes. Blue grass allows only blue light to pass through it, all others are absorbed in the glass. Sunlight is energy. The heat in rays of sunlight, when focused with a lense, will start a fire. Light and heat are reflected from white materials and absorbed by black materials. That's why white clothing is cooler than black clothing. But what is the nature of light? The first man to make a serious effort to explain light was Sir Isaac Newton. He believed that light is made up of corpuscles, like tiny bullets that are shot from the source of the light. But some of the things that happen to light couldn't be explained according to this theory. So a man called Huygenp came up with another explanation of light. He developed the "wave" theory of light. His idea was that light started pulses, or waves, the way a pebble dropped into a pool makes waves. Whether light was waves or corpuscles was argued for nearly 150 years. The wave theory seemed to be the one that most scientists accepted. Then something was discovered about the way light behaves that upset this theory. Where does science stand today about light? Well, it is now believed that light behaves both as particles and as waves. Experiments can be made to prove that it is one or the other. So there just doesn't seem to be a single satisfactory answer to the question of what is light? Fun Time The Chuckle Box Man: Are you sure there are no crocodiles in this water? Native: Yes sir.

Why We Say It A person who is a great admirer, or is greatly devoted to something, is called a "fan." This is simply an abbreviation for the word "fanatic." And you know how the word "fanatic" came to be? In Latin, "fanum" means a "temple," and in ancient Rome there were certain people who had a temple madness — they would fall into fits at the temple. So they were "fanatics"! Win the Britannica World Atlas or Yearbook of Events. Send your riddles, jokes to: Riddles, Jokes, Tell Me Why!"

(AP)-Jimmy Wong knows how to campaign for office: an appeal to the voters in as many languages as possible. The Seneca High School sophomore, running for vice president of the Student College, decorated the school halls with posters in English, Spanish, German, French and Latin. No Chinese, though. The youngster speaks all ihesi; languages, bul is a little weak on Chinese, even though his parents use Chinese fluently. The multiple-tongue campaign paid off: Jimmy won. I'ltOFIT FROM COFFEE BREAK TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Teachers at Henry , Grady Elementary School take a coffee break before their workday begins, and profit from it. Each morning from 8:15 to 8:25, the teachers meet for coffee and conversation. "We go over any now paper work that comes across the desk, we discuss testing and problems and it gives the teachers a chance to exchange ideas and other opinions related to their work," says Principal W. E. Hall. "The results are gratifying."
