VIEWING THE ECLIPSE On Saturday, July 20th, a solar eclipse will be visible, weather permitting, from most of th» United States and Canada. Falling on a weekend and coming in a traditionally holiday month, the event can be expected to attract a record number of viewers. There also will be a record number of eye injuries (retinal burns), unless precautions arc taken to prevent them. Retinal burns from the sun are like those from an atomic blast. The normal eye can tolerate only fleeting glances at the sun. Don't view (he eclipse (brough colored glasses, smoked glasses, broken heer bottles, or other common objects. Such material will not protect the eyes from serious damage. The only safe way to view the eclipse is in- direcily. Punch a ^ inch hole in a card about one foot square. Hold the card at right angles to the sun's rays so thai ihe image will be reflected on a screen placed about 10 feel away. The observer's back is to the sun and thus direct exposure of ihe eyes to the searing rays of the sun is avoided. SAYLOR 51 ^ PHARMACY l<2>> KTM AND CHtlTNUT I&UHJJ&K, iMMMli^ ICIANON, PA.

The threat of increased racial strife in many parts of the nation could disrupt much business planning. The problem could last long after its day in Congress, Tax legislation is at the critical stage in Congress. How it may finally turn out and what it will do to business is a major uncertainty just now. A tax cut could spur business activity. Or, some say, it could merely lay the foundation for future inflation by increasing the federal .deficit. At 'the moment, the financial markets are sweating out,an expected rise in short-term interest rates. The Federal Reserve board may raise the ( discount rate soon, or it may hold off. If this charge to member banks for what they borrow—now 3 per cent—should rise, other short term interest costs would likely rise. The question then would be whether this would send long- term borrowing costs up, too, and if so, how soon. NJ Zinc 31Vi 62V« + Vt Phila.
