Junior Editors Quit on WINDOWS SWEETIE PIE QUESTION: Where arc glass? used in place of Window ANSWER: When men first began building houses, they were faced with a big problem. If they left a hole in the wall to let in light, the wind, rain and cold would come in, too. If they closed j up the hole, they wouldn't get any light. The first solution to the problem was to mask the window opening with cloth or mica. This let in the light but people could not see through them. About the time of the Roman Empire two thousand years ago, people began using glass in their windows. But in the Philippine Islands the problem was solved in a different way. There is a thin, flat scashell found there that is so thin and transparent that you can read a newspaper through it. People of the island use them in place of glass in their windows. FOR YOU TO DO: Here is a picture of a Moro boy in the Philippines making a window of seashells for his home. Color the picture. The bamboo walls of the house are light brown and the boy's clothing is dark. (Janice Sui of Honolulu wins $10 for this question. Send your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this newspaper. If duplicate questions are received, Mrs. Higgins will select the winner.)
