Today's winner is: Sandra Favreau, 10, Meriden, Conn, Before man discovered fire, the only heat and light he had was provided by the sun. Since he couldn't control this, he was quite helpless in dealing with cold and darkness. Probably more than 100,000 years ago, he discovered lire Then he began to notice :that some materials burned better than oth ers. Perhaps he observed that fa dripping into the fire from roast ing meat burned brightly. As time passed, man began to select ma terials which, when burned, provided better light. Splinters o certain woods were stuck into the wall and they burned slowly. Pine knots were used as torches. Ani inal fats were placed in shallow stone dishes and moss and other materials were used as wicks. Am thus oil lamps were born. Exactly when this happened we canno know, since it was before recordec history. The first candles were made by melting animal fats, such as lard and tallow,and pouring the liquid jito a mold such as a hollow bamboo. Fibers twisted together were strung through the center so that when it cooled, the solid rod of [at had a wick in the qenter. Thus the candle was created at unknown date long before Christ was born. Lard was used in lard-oil lamps in New England around 1820, From whale blubber, oU was ex* reeled for whale-oil larop«, Jn fact, whatever kind of oil was eas- est to obtain was used for lamps. Along the Mediterranean there are many olive trees. So oljve oil vas used for lamps there. The apanese and Chinese obtained pU or their lamps Irom various nuti, Peanuts would probably be used or oil Jor temps today — if eral oil in the earth had not been discovered. Petroleum was discovered i n 1859. By heating this oil in a clos ed vessel, a thin colorless prod uct known as kerosene is obtaii ed. This became the oil mos commonly used for lamps. In fact, it was first called "coal oil," because people thought petroleum was associated with coal Do you have an oil lamp in your, house today?

MAN BEHIND MACHINE Data-processing equipment Is Seing used more and more widely by the public schools to make class assignments, keep grade records and the like. But some- :lmes the machines slip up, as they did at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, N.C. The result, according to the National Education Association publication, "Education U.S.A.": One girl received a monotonous schedule with several lunch jerlods; another had only one unch period, but it was at 8:45 a.m.: a student who had flunked French I three tjmes found jimself promoted to French IV; and another student almost got away with a restful' semester— hree study hajls. School officials blamed it all on human error in preparing the data. First building hi America erected specifically for hotel purposes was New York's 73-room City iote} which opened in 1794.
