In case of dup Jicate questions, the author wil decide the winner. Today's winner is: Darryl Lownsberry, 11, Cones toga, Pa. We may think of glass as being produced by the mixture pf some very special chemicals in a very special way, a son| of miracle oi chemistry. But actually, glass is made by a rather simple process using quite ordinary materials. Glass is a substance made by fusing" (melting together) certain materials, and then cooling the mixture so that the atoms arrange themselves in an unorgan- zed pattern, What materials? Well, about 95 per cent of the ray materials in the earth could be used in making glass! The most important materials used in making glass however are: sane (silica), soda, limestone, borax, boric acid, magnesium oxide, anc ead oxide. Nature herself produced t h e first glass. About 450,000,000 years ago molten (melted) rock in the core of the earth forced its way o the surface and broke through he .earth's crust in volcanoes, When the hot lava contained silica and cooled rapidly, it formed a glass as hard as a rock. Thjs volcanic glass is called "obsidi an." Glass has been made by man sinve very ancient times. The Egyptians, more than 5,000 ears ago, knew how to make a kind ol colored glass with which hey covered stone and pottery nd sometimes made Into, beads, 'erfume and ointment bottles made of glass were used in Egypt nore than 3,500 years ago. The Roman Empire (1st cen- ury B.C. to 5th century ^.D.) a« one of the greatest periods ifl lie history of glees. It was at this time that man learned how to low gift** and tijus form huo- dreds of different shapes and siz es of glass objects. Today of course, there are man> new ways of making glass tha have been developed. But this i the basic process. The raw ma terials for glass are brought t the glass factory and stored in huge bins. The raw materials are carefully measured and then mix ed into a "batch." Then broken glass of the same formula, callec 'cuJJet," is added to the batch to speed the melting. The batch is fed automatically Into the fur nace. The glass then flows out o: the .furnace at lower tempera tures. Then the glass goes through many processes such as blowing pressing, rolling, casting and drawing — depending on the type of glass that is being made.
