-Junior Editors Quiz on- INVENTIONS SWEETIIPiE By Nadine Seltxer QUESTION: Who invented the umbrella? ANSWER: Surprisingly, the first umbrellas had nothing to do with protecting their owners from rain. "Umbrella" comes from the Latin "umbra," meaning "shade." The first umbrellas were simply sunshades, invented in the hot, sunny countries of ancient Ninevah and Egypt, hundreds of years before the coming of Christ. As our drawing shows, umbrellas were used to keep the sun from the heads of kings and other important people. Both Greeks and Romans used umbrellas, and they became popular throughout Italy. By 1650 umbrellas began to appear in England, and the people in that damp, rainy country soon found out the modern use of the umbrella—to protect oneself from rain. Early umbrellas were crude, clumsy things, having ribs of whalebone or cane. In 1892, Samuel Fox perfected the umbrella as we know it, with ribs made of light steel rolled into a U-section, which gives great flexibility and strength. FOR YOU TO DO: Our drawing will be fun to color. The ancient part should have a brilliant blue sky, against which red, yellow and orange colors will give the effect of sunshine. In the modern part use light blue and gray so that it will seem to rain. (The $10 award for this question goes to Joanna Cevada of Taunton, Mass.
