A toxic rain of mercury falls on the arctic every spring just when ecosystems are preparing for their first burst of activity of the year, Canadian researchers report in today's New Scientist magazine. The researchers at Environment Canada said the reason for the rain of mercury, one of the most poisonous substances known to man, was unclear. But they said the pattern almost exactly mimics the timing of ozone depletion and suggested that similar processes drive both phenomena.

A moisture-laden storm system that buried the nation's heartland under up to 14 inches of April snow shifted into the Great Lakes region with more snow, icy rain and arctic winds. Snow showers were scattered across parts of Wisconsin, lower Michigan and into north-central Indiana. The heaviest snowfall spread from just north of the Iowa border in southwestern Minnesota to south-central and southeastern parts of the state. The storm buried Rochester, Minn., streets under 11 inches of snow.

They flew into sandstorms, driving rain, Arctic winds and, once, a mountain. But the first around-the-world flight wasn't all bad. The U.S. Army pilots brought home medals, headlines and the affections of young Parisian women. They landed 70 years ago this Friday at what would later become Santa Monica Airport, helping to guarantee the future of Douglas Aircraft and put Santa Monica on the map. Just don't tell Seattle.

Snow, freezing rain and arctic air lashed much of the nation Friday, shutting offices and schools in a dozen states. Several deaths were attributed to the weather, including two people near Chicago: A 77-year-old woman was killed when a snowplow backed into her and an elderly man collapsed and died as he shoveled snow. Another death was blamed on icy roads in northern Oklahoma.

As it circles in search of a new landing site in a rural area, it leaves behind its roots in a seaside community that once welcomed an ambitious designer who transformed air travel.

President Reagan on Monday endorsed Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's efforts to promote freer trade between the United States and Canada, but two of the most contentious issues between the two nations remain unsettled. Reagan told a joint session of Parliament that Mulroney's proposal, establishing "the largest free trade area in the world," would set "an example of cooperation to all nations that now wrestle against the siren temptation of protectionism."

In past summers, Lisa Hestin Lerner's two children, 9-year-old Alison and 11-year-old Jonathan, have experimented with being a cardiac surgeon, a Web site designer and a robotics creator. But Jonathan keeps talking about the time he dissected a sheep's brain--something Lerner was glad he did away from home.
