Today's winner is: Glenn Springer, 9, Arlington, Texas It is about 20 degrees colder at the South Pole than at the North Pole. Why? First of all, we must understand that when we talk of the "North Pole" and the "South Pole" we really mean the Arctic and Antarctic regions. It is impossible to make comparisons between just the two poles,.— the whole region must be considered, What is the climate like In the Arctic -Region? The short, cool summer lasts only two to four months. (There is almost no fall or spring). The average summer temperature is above freezing, but never averages above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The rain and snowfall over most of the Arctic is very light — less than 15 inches of snow and rain. Winter lasts for about nine months, and the average temperature is below freezing. Over the North Pole ice pack temperatures of 30 degrees below zero Fahrenheit are common. But here is an important point: the Arcticjs mainly an ocean almost surrounded by land. It is the opposite of the Antarctic, which is a continent surrounded by water. The Arctic Region of the North Pole is almost all water and ice, Now since there are chiefly moving waters in the Arctic re» gion, they do not become as cold or stay as cold as a large land body such as Antarctica. Also, winds as cold and strong as those in Antarctica can not develop over the warmer Arctic waters. That's why the Antarctic region is the coldest part ol the earth. There is never enough sunlight to warm up the land, at the South Pole, since it is the farthest point from the Equator where the sun's rays are strongest. If you were an explorer, y o would find many good reasons fo preferring to go to the N o r t Pole region. The weather 1 warmer, the winds are calmei there is less ice, and it is muc easier to travel • to the Arcti region overland or by air all yea and by sea in the summer, FUN TIME The Hlddlo ISox' 1, When is a girl's name lik a postscript? 2.

History of Ico Ago COLUMBUS, Ohio (fi>)— New facts about life and climate during the last Ice Age in North America may be discovered by using a research method developed at Ohio State University. Dr. Aurelo LaRoeque, O.SU geology professor, combines geologic and biologic techniques to compare past and present environments by correlating snail fossils of the Pleistocene Age with the same species living today, Since 1952, he has applied this method to the history of Ohio's last Ice Ago some 10 to 15 thousand years ago. Now with the aid of a National Sci ence Foundation grant he wll, study a much broader area of North America to determine an over-all pattern.
