To be the first in all the world to have a thing happen to you is cause enough for excitement. There are only two previous authenticated records of meteorites falling into houses. There have been previous reports of persons being struck by these extra- terrestial bodies, but they remain reports. There seems to be no -Sfloubt, however, about what Mrs. Hodges.' Meteorites are not so very rare at that, however. On. the average about 10 authenticated falls are reported every year throughout the world. There are presumably many more meteorites falling into the sea and waste places where no one ever sees them. There have been close shaves controversy down-the-iine by issuing a new defense of the prl- a news conference proposal to supply vate power contract with AEC. Strauss told yesterday the additional private power ,to the Tennessee Valley was a "good con- Iract," linked to national defense and needed to meet expanding AEC power requirements. He made his points in a 35-page statement and a one-hour talk which he said represented his per- no hit sonal vie\ys. consulted in He said he had not advance with other before.

About 20 years ago a meteorite plunged through the motor of an automobile traveling along a highway in, we recall, Illinois. Still fewer years ago, a farmer in Limestone County, Alabama, saw one plunge into the field where he was working. Perhaps mankind has been relatively fortunate in escaping injury from these missiles from space. Or perhaps we need to rmremember that all the human beings of the world after all pccupy but an infinitesimally small part of its surface. Hasn't some one- estimated that all the human beings now existent in the world r.ould be put into a box a half mile square that could be dropped into the Grand Canyon of Arizona without the box reaching the top? The meteor that crashed through the roof of the Hodges home in Svlacucauga was relatively small. tSfrt. was about seven inches in diam,eter. and weiehftd-nine pounds. But a few huge meteorites have been recorded. Some weigh hundreds of tons.. And the earth's surface is pocked by falls of meteorites in prehistoric times. There Crater in Arizona a in diameter.

His defense of the contract came admid a sharp legal fight before the Securities and Exchange Commission which is considering whether to approve financial arrangements for Ihe project. The SEC resumes open hearings Monday (10 a. m.). ' Strauss said his purposes was to claiify his views on Dixon-Yates and not, as a reporter asked, to ward off expected Democratic attacks on the contract when Congress reconvenes Jan. 5.

About tha turn of the century, a great meteorite felt in an isolated region of Siberia, destroying the forests for miles around.

From the beginning of the creation of the earth, we may suppose, nieteorites have been coming from out of space to strike this globe. In all that time, many billions of %nan beings have lived. And only now, here in Alabama, there is a proven case of a meteorite striking a human being. Almost any remark about that event would be an understatement.

Cotton Consumption Increases Slightly WASHINGTON ofl The Census Bureau reported today cotton consumption for the period of Oct. 31 to Nov. 27 averaged 3(5.087 bales for each workina day. This compared with an average of 35,127 bales for the corresponding period a year ago, and with 35,777 for the October period this By JOHN M. HIGHTOV/ER WASHINGTON Wl— Russia may harden its attitude toward the West again early next year. Such a switch would not neces sarily reduce the chances whici now appear to exist • for „ improv ing basic contacts between Mos cow and the rest of the world. It would tend to increase' ten sions a little and to show mor clesrly the essentially antagonist! nature of Communist policy towar non-Communist nctions. These views are held by respon sible Washington officials, some o them highly placed. The views ar speculative. They are based o several considerations, including 1. An assumption that Russia' plugging of "peaceful coexistence during the past year has bee aimed' primarily at. lulling Wes European countries into relaxatio and thereby blocking the rearma ment of West Germany. 2.

' Benediction,' Sheppard Jury Has Resumed Discussions By RELMAN MORlN CLEVELAND, Dec 18 Dr. Samuel Sheppard waits through the most anxious hours of his life today. The jurors in his murder trial resume their deliberations this morning after 12 hours of dis- cusson yesterday. Not the slightest hint has come from behind the o.cked and -guarded doors of the conference loom as to whether they are near a verdict or how hey are voting. Sheppard is accused of murdering his pregnant wife, Marilyn. If the jury finds him guilty of murder in the first degree, and does not recommend mercy, the law requires that he must die in the electric chair. As the long, slow hours passed, courtroom observers began to speculate about the possibility that the jurors are locked in disagreement. However, they have an enormous mass of material to consider. The written record of the nine- weeks trial amounts to more than a million words. And there are 214 "exhibits," including photographs, letters, personal possessions of the accused man the blood-splotched coverings of the bed where Mari- jyn Sheppard died. Lawyers said it might take many hours just to examine all this before the discussions s°t started in earnest. The seven men and five women jurors loked tired and some of them seemed a little grim last night when Judge Edward Blythin excused them and sent them to a downtown Cleveland hotel for the Tom Ducked Hoi* Wm.
