In case of duplicate questions, the author will decide the winner. Todays's will decide the winner. Today's Paul Mickelson, 10, Sioux FaUs, S.D. A cloud in the sky and a cloud of steam often look alike. In many ways they are alike, Each is made of partly condensed water vapor. What you see as a cloud therefore, is these tiny drops of,water All air has, some moisture hi i as water vapor. When warm mois air cools it often can no longer hold all its mosiiure as water vapor. The extra moisture changes (condenses) into small drops pf water which can be seen. If this air is next to the grounc it is called fog, If.it is hjgher in the air we call it a cloud.'Anc the kind of cloud it is depends on how high It is in,}the air. In fact there are really only four main families of clouds and they are: high clouds, middle clouds, low dbuds, and clouds which may extend through all levels. However, the names, that we have for clouds come from Latin words that describe their appearance, rather than their location. For example, "cirrus" means 'curl" or "ringlet," "Stratus" means "a spreading out." "Cumulus means "heap" or "mass," 'Nimbus" means "rain cloud." The most Important high clouds are cirrus clouds. They float 5 or njore mjjes above the earth, and are made of tiny particles o! ce, Cirrus clouds are feathery and threadlike. Middle clouds are called alto- tratus and alto-cumulus clouds. These clouds are made of Utile drops of water and are found from about 2 to 4 miles above the earth, clouds are called stratus. I clouds. They are found at levels less than a mile high and are made of water droplets, The fourth cloud family includes clouds which build up from low clouds to the very highest levels. They are called cumulus and cumulus-nimbus clouds. The cumulus-nimbus clouds are the thunderstorm clouds which sometimes look like big mountains. Cloud formalities help weather observers predict local weather conditions, since the appearance of different'- kinds of clouds are signs of changes in the atmosphere, FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Mary; There's a man outside with a wooden leg named Smith.

DENTIST DRILLS FOB SPACE PITTSBURGH (ft) - Engineers at the Power Circuit Breaker Division of Westinghouse Electric Corp. in nearby TraHord had to make a dentist appointment to fill a space contract. The "patient" was an electrode for a 10,000-kllowatt arc heated - the device used tq simulate extreme conditions encountered by spacecraft upon centering the atmosphere, Engineers needed to enlarge two small openings inside the neck of the electrode, but they couldn't reach the spot with their precision :oojs.
