It is. in fact, brighter than any other star or planet now visible in the evening. On the accompanying maps, which depict the sky at about 10:00 p.m. at the beginning of June, or an hour earlier in the middle, (add one hour if you are on daylight time) the position of this planet is shown. It: is in the constellation of Virgo, the Virgin, just: east of the bright star Spica, which it exceeds in brilliance more than six times. One other planet is now visible in the evening and. as it happens, in the same constellation. This is Saturn, lo the west of Spica, which it, surpasses only slightly in brightness. The brightest star to be seen at this time of year is Vega, which is high in the east, in Lyra, the lyre. Below this group is the swan, Cygnus, in which appears the northern cross, arid has Deneb as its brightest star. To the right of Cygnus is Aquila, the eagle, in which Altair shines. Though both Dcneb and Altair are of the first magnitude in bi-ightness, both are so low, - as shown on the maps, that their light is appreciably dimmed by the greater distance it has to travel through the earth's atmosphere. Hence, both are represented by the symbol for a star of the second magnitude. Later at night, as they rise higher, they will be seen in full brilliance. Capella, in Auriga, the charioteer, which is shown just above the horizon in the northwest, is dimmed even more, and is indicated here as one of the third magnitude. Actually, it is the second brightest of the stars that are now visible. As with Pollux, in Gemini the twins, just to the left, this is the last appearance of a winter star Arcturus, in the constellation of Bootes, the herdsman, which is ligh in the south, above Virgo, is one of the same magnitude as Capella, 0.2, so by comparing these stars the effect of atmospheric absorption is well shown. Incidentally, a good way to locate Arcturus :s to look first in the north for the Dig dipper, in Ursa Major, the ;reat bear. As is well known, the .wo stars Dubhe and Merak, at the bowl of the dipper, are the pointers which show the direction of Polaris, the pole star, to the right. But if you follow the curve of the dipper's handle, ending with Alkaid, toward the south, the first bright star you come to is Arcturus. Another first magnitude star is Antares, in Scorpius, the scorpion, low in the south. The name of this star means "rival of Mars," doubtless applied because of their similar color. With Mars now only a short distance, one can easily compare them. It, will not be possible to see Mercury and Venus at all in June. The former is at superior conjunction with the sun (i. e., directly behinu it) on June 8, and the latter reaches a similar position on Ihe 24th. Jupiter, which was behind the sun in April, is now well to the west of the sun, so it rises more., than an hour before sunrise. It can be seen shining even more brightly than Mars, in the eastern sky at dawn. With the coming of June, the official beginning of summer is close at hand. This event comes on Saturday, June 21, at 6:13 a.m., EST. At that moment, called the summer solstice, the sun reaches the northernmost portion of its annual path through the sky. Actually of course, this movement of the sun is only apparent. As the earth revolves around it, it stands against an ever-changing background of distant stars. The axis on which the earth rotates is not exactly at right angles to the plane in which it revolves around the sun, but is tilted from the vertical about 23^ degrees, SYMBOLS FOR STARS IN ORDER OF BRIGHTNESS <»*<>• which is why terrestrial globes are usually cocnstructed with such a slant. This slant is the reason for the seasons, for if the axis really were perpendicular to the plane of our orbit, all parts of the globe would have the same season contin- usally. On the other hand, if the inclination were much greater than it is, the seasonal changes would be more extreme. At this time of year, the. north pole leans over toward the sun, which thus rises highest for places in the northern hemisphere. Six months from now, just before Christmas, will corne the winter solstice. The north pole will lean farthest away from the sun, which will then be far to the south. But at that time the south pole will be leaning sunwards, so for people in the southern hemisphere the sun will rise high in the sky, making our winter solstice the beginning of their summer. Conversely, on June 21, when summer begins for us, winter begins in southern countries. In December when the sun is far south, it rises south of the east point of the horizon and sets well to the south of the west point. Even its noon-day height is lower than at other times of year, so its path across the sky is a short one.'At 4C degrees latitude, on the day of the winter solstice, the sun is above the horizon for only 9 hours 20 minutes. In contrast, on June 21, the time from sunrise in the northeast to sunset in the northwest will be 15 hours. This is part of the reason why we are now .coming to the warmest weather of the year, for with the sun's rays shining on us so much longer, we are bound to get hotter But even more important is the greater height of the sun. If it were directly overhead, a beam of sunlight a yard square would covei exactly one square yard of the ground. At no point in the Unitec States does it come exactly to the zenith but, at 40 north latitude, it comes within 16',2 degrees of it, so he solar radiation is still quite concentrated. Compare what happens on Dec. 21. Then the sun, at its highest for 40 north latitude, is 63!i degrees from the zenith; that is, it is only 26la degrees from the horizon. Our yard-square beam of sunlight is hen spread over about 2>4 square yards, so its heating effect is less :han half as great. This combined with the shorter duration of sunshine accounts for the small amount of heat the northern hemisphere gets in winter. If it were just a matter of the heat coming from the sun, however, we would have warmest weather at the summer solstice, and coldest at the one of winter. But, for some weeks after the summer solstice, the ground gets more heat during the day than it can give up during the night. Each day is a little warmer than the day before, until the last half of July, when maximum temperatures may be reached. A similar effect, in reverse, accounts for the fact that the coldest weather comes not at Dec. 21, but in January. Not until then does the earth begin to gain during the day as much heat as it lost during the preceding night, and thus permit general temperatures to increase.

Price Ceilings On Food Items Hiked Monday .WASHINGTON, May 29, /P—Retail grocers today began computing new price ceilings on hundreds of food items based on government approval of higher profit margin for the industry. The new ceilings can go into effect Monday. The office of Price Stabilization (OPS) issued an order last night authorizing increases ranging up to 25 percent in the mark-ups retail food stores can apply to their costs. OPS said this averages about a penny an item on tho selected list of foods affected. Price Stabili/er Ellis Arnall estimated the margin hikes will increase food costs to the public by from 100 million to 150 million dollars a year, , The higher ceilings were aulhor- Seize Station, Broadcast Fake War Bulletin ifMACA, N.Y., May 29, /P-Ten youlhs wearing Halloween masks seized control of the Cornell University nidio station for eight minutes last night and broadcast a fake bulletin that London nnd Mar- icilles had been bombed by "Russian-type" planes.

Youngsters Find Kelio When a doctor saw children playing with an old "brass" chain iu a village near Hannover, Germany, he stopped to investigate. He found the chain was made of golrt and dated from the seventh century. An art collector subsequently bought it for $9400. The children had found it in the marshes in which many ancient relics still are buried. Women Disfrnnchiswl Women In Northern Rhodesia were up in arms when a Voters' Roll Court in Lusaka decided that most married women are not en- tilled lo vote, under the present law. Only the legal tenants or owners ot premises may vote at local administration elections, the court, held. Thus the 90 percent of women who occupy houses with their husbands cannot vote. Even the judge agreed this was illogical but said he had to interpret the law as it stands. The women promptly went about having the law changed. Telegraph Want Ads Click!
