In case of duplicate questions, the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Linda Grant, 14, Falkville, Alabama. Everybody knows that when the heart stops — life stops. But it's not because the heart is some sort of "magic" organ. The heart is necessary for life because without it the rest of the body could not carry on its functions. The heart is simply a pump— the most remarkable pump known to man. This pump keeps the blood moving through our bodies during our entire life. And what makes this pump so re markable is that it's only about the size of a man's fist, beats from 2 to 3 billions times in an average lifetime, works automatically, can repair itself, and in a single minute pumps more than 4 quarts of blood to the body. Never during your entire life, does your heart stop its pump ing action. The reason it must do this is that tissues of your body cannot live without a con stunt supply of fresh blood. The blood brings oxygen from ' the lungs to every cell in the body and carries back carbon dioxide to the lungs. So the heart makes a "waste disposal" system pos sible for every cell of the body Unless the blood were able to circulate, dissolved foodstufl from the intestines could never reach other parts of the body Wastes have to be brought to the kidneys, disease-fighting sub stances have to be brought to trouble spots, glands and organs need nourishment. All of this is possible because of that amaz ing pump -f the heart. How does this pump workl By alternately contracting aw relaxing. Contraction begins a 1 the top, in two chambers called the "auricles." Then it pass es downward to the "ventricles, 1 Then it rests for an instant. The ventricles then pump the blood out of the heart. The heart is really a muscle, and all muscles work because are nerve cells and fibers which start these impulses and make he muscle work — or the heart jeat. Since all this takes place within the heart itself—it's automatic! The rate of the heartbeat however, can be changed by im pulses received from the spinal cord or brain. This is the way, for example, that excitement can cause the heart to beat fast er. they receive lerves. Inside impulses the heart from there 4567 SIZES 2-4 FUN TIME Bob: Why are you running so fast?
