, At least it would appear that way from the loaded appearance and the happy smiles of these Texas
men who recently went duck hunting together near Corpus Christi. They are, left to right: Ben Davis of
Abilene; S. W. Pappert, president of the Texas Daily Press League, Dallas; Al Mittenthal, millinery man-
ufacturer, Dallas; Willis Cox of Abilene, and Grady Kinsolving, editor of the Corpus Christi Caller and
Times. The two men on the right were guides for the party. Note the three large geese Kinsolving has
ISTHE UNIVERSE EXPLODING?
Mount Wilson Observatory's 100-
inch telescope not only lias opened
up to the astronomer a new and
before undreamed-of perspective,
but virtually has revolutionized his
idea of the Universe. Physical
creation is vast beyond his wildest
fancy and under the lash of forces
as yet beyond Ids understanding.
A few years’ diligent observation
through the Mount Wilson glass,
along with painstaking effort to
compare and interpret the facts
thus gathered, lias convinced the comprehend the result?
scientist that he knows less than
he had thought.
The Milky Way—as our own
galaxy, or star system, is called—
is so vast as to stagger the most
powerful imagination. It is a disk
floating in space, its parts held
together by gravitation—30,000
light years across in one direction
and more than twice as wide in
the other. To reduce the galaxy’s
diameter to miles, one multiplies
30,000 by 6 million million. The
process is simple, but who can
Yet the new telescope has re-
vealed that this star system is l^ut
one among millions—all similarly
constructed. The observer has ex-
plored space to the distance of
J10 million light years, but has de-
tected no sign that the island
universes—as he calls them—are
thinning out. However, lie lias
seen un amazing phenomenon:
those galaxies at the fur rim or
the telescope’s range seem to be
shooting outward at a speed ol’
many thousand miles a second.
At first, that effect was set
down to an illusion, probably caus-
by the bending of light
"Planning Our Farm IUihIiiomh
for 1932," the subject studied by
the regularly enrolled members of
the Evening School of the Lone
Tree Community Thursday night,
Dec. 10, was by far the most in-
teresting lessons thus far studied
if participation in the discussion
may be taken as a criteria to in-
terest. The following cotton facts

To supply those data—as Dr.
John C. Merriam, president of
Carnegie Institution, states in his
annual report—another 100-inch
telescope is required for the South-
ern Hemisphere. The Mount Wil-
son instrument lias supplied only
half the picture; the whole scene
may look different. Such a glass,
with an observatory to house it,
would be heavily costly, but worth
the money. Some philanthropist
with a seal for furthering the
quest for knowledge should seize
upon this opportunity.—San An-

porlunt ones listed it was decided
to spend the hour on that sub-
ject. A list of thirty tilings as
meats, animal products (as milk
and eggs), corn meal, and vege-
tables had been successfully grown
by members of the class. It was
found that part or all those pres-
ent. bought seventeen of items on
this list. Twenty-one items in the
list scorned to offer possibility of
bringing in some cash from sale
of that portion that was not need-
ed at horde.
Between this and their next
meeting, which will be Thursday,
December 17t.li, every member of
the class is to work out a list of
the things for which lie will need
money during 1932 and estimate
the amount needed for each item.
Tiiir will give a total for which he
plans to work out a cropping sys-
tem to meet.
A list of enterprises which eacli
member thinks his farm and him-
self suited to will also be made
by every member of the class. All
available information showing pos-
s'bic present, inmi diate, and long
time outlook will i her. be studied
to determine whether or not it
would be wise to include this en-
tc prise in the several farm busi-
