Junior Editors Quiz on CENTURIES SW6ETII PIE By Nadine Seltzer OUT OUR WAY BY J. R. WILLIAMS OUR BOARDING HOUSf . . . with , . . MAJO* QUESTION: Why are the 1900s called the ?0th Century? ANSWER: Along about the middle of the 6th Century, the Christian nations of the world decided to itart counting the year* from the birth of Christ. Thus, the year 1 A. D. (Anno Domini or "in the year of the Lord") began the day Christ was then believed to have been born. The 1st Century A. D., therefore, theoretically began on Jan. 1 In the year 1 A. D., and ended Dec. 31 in the year 100 A. D. The 2nd Century began Jan. 1, 101 and ended Dec. 31, 200. The 20th Century began Jan. 1, 1901 and will end Dec. 31, 2000. Every time we move Into a new century, however, a great controversy springs up for there are a great many people who believe that centuries begin a year earlier. They feel the 20th Century began on Jan. 1, 1900 and will end Dee. 31, 1999. If* a matter of choice. FOR YOU TO DO: Columbus discovered America in 1492. The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776. See If you can figure out in what centuries those two events occurred. (Gloria Carlson of Duluth, Minn., wins $10 for this question.
