SIMPLE SCIENCE By WOW (Science Service) MILK There are many kinds of milk--co- coanut, milkweed, milk of magnesia, cow. goat, milk of human kindness; the last is the scarcest. Milk is a very old remedy. I ihink it's the ohlest. All children have used it, except Adam and Eve. It's made from grass and water, and should be very cheap. Good milk is eighty-seven percent water. Chemists say the re- mainder is fat and not-fat. It's nice to know this, especially the not-fat. They also say milk is an emulsion, which is a good thing to know too, be- cause you can then let the milk stand awhile and skim off the cream. The cream contains the milk-fat. The not-fat is the hardest to under- stand. When a thing is hard to un- derstand chemists give it a queer name that vou can't remember, so you won't be lil)ely to ask them about it. They call part of the not-fat protein or casein. Other people call it curd. Casein and milk-fat arc used to make cheese, Casein contains about sixteen percent of nitrogen. This nitrogen is very useful in making muscle. Den- t!sts and school teachers ought to eat lots of cheese.

Wherever you plan to go the Southern Pacific or its connections can probably take you. Communicate with any Southern Pacific Agent for complete information, given prompt- ly and courteously.

Another part of the not-fat is called lactose, which when translated, means milk-sugar. This is what makes milk go sour in* hot, moist weather, because it gets changed by bacteria into a sour substance called lactic acid, very much the same as sweet dispositions turn sour in bad weather. The third part of the not-fa~t is a mixture of salts containing phospates. These are good for making bones and brains. These arc both good things to make especially if we are careful to make enough of both. Many of us are careless. Write to the Catalina Light Tackle Club, P. O.
