As you know, the question of "color" and people's attitudes toward persons of a different color is very much in the news now. There is a great deal of strong feeling and opinion on this subject. What we are discussing here nowever, is only what science has to tell us about the different races and about color. The word "race" is a biologi- |cal term. It is a way of setting groups of people apart according to differences in anatomy. From this point of view, there are really no fundamental differences among the races. In all essential features, mankind is one. The biblical story of the common origins of the human race has not been contradicted by a modern scientific discovery. The differences that set races apart are considered minor and secondary by scientists, and they include such things as shape of skull, form of nose, texture of the hair on the head, the amount of hair on the body, and the color of the skin. The differences that are most commonly used to classify races are the texture of the head, hair and the color of the skin. Actually, of these two, a clearer line of decision can be made based on the hair than on the skin. If we use the color of the skin as a basis, it is 'possible to establish three similar primary races. People with the whitest skin are called Nordics and are found in northern Europe, people with the blackest skin lived in west Africa, and people in southeast Asia are distinguished by yellowish tan. According to chemical research, the different shades oi skin are due to the amount oi two chemicals in the skin. One is melanin, which darkens it, and the other is carotene, which gives it a yellowish color. If the color of the skin is a result of different amounts of certain chemicals being present, what does this have to do with differences in mental ability among races? According to scientists, the color of skin of different races has nothing to do with mental ability. According to them, all the great civilizations originated with people who might be considered "colored", as did all the great religions! FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. When is a car not an automobile? 2.

WHY WE SAY IT We're used to having all sorts of "slogans" shouted at us in advertising. The word "slogan" goes back to the Gaelic word "slaugh- gairm". In Gaelic, "slaugh" meant "army" and "gairm" meant "yell". So a "slaugh- gairm" was the army yell or war cry of a clan. No wonder some advertising slogans today seem to be shouted like war cries!
