Junior Editors Quiz on- TIME QUESTION: How did ancient people use water to tell time? ANSWER: From his earliest days, man has always been vitally concerned with measuring time. First he noticed a connection between time and the sun and shade. He invented the sun dial, a device by which the sun casts a shadow on a calibrated disc. But a sun dial wouldn't work at night or indoors where there Is no sun. So man invented the hour glass in which sand filtered from one compartment to another at a measured rate of speed. In some, the sand took exactly an hour to change compartments. Sometimes, water was used instead of sand and the device was called a "water clock." Water clocks were used a lot in the Orient There is one more than 500 years old in Canton, China. FOR YOU TO DO: You can make a water clock by punching a pin-prick hole in a small container and letting water drip from it into another container. Using a regular clock, see how long it takes all the water to drip out. When you find out, you can use the water clock to measure time. (Janice Marquis of Norwalk, Conn., wins $10 for this question.
