NEW YORK (. Once
upon a time there was a great
scientist named Dr. Alfonso Cor

Thf day he was born he asked
the nurse if he could borrow the
hospital's microscope. He wouldn't
take his afternoon nap unless his
mother sang him a lullaby from
an algebra book.
By the time he was five he
could recite the Encyclopedia
Britiannica from memory, for

dex. He graduated from college
at 7 before he could play hop
At 10 he competed In a radio
giveaway quiz contest. They
couldn't think up a question he
couldn't answer. The network fi

it was the only way to keep
from going bankrupt. With that
nest egg the young scientist
bought himself his first pair of
long pants and dedicated the rest
of his life to science.
