Are the uniforms new this year?" "Yeah. Wonder what it's like to stand out there under "There's the whistle. A time the lights in front of all these people and figure you're what brought 'em out?" "Groovy. Do you think they're a match for the opposition?" "I don't know why not. There stands 50 of the prettiest pompon girls who ever made a drill team!" "Yeah. Hey, what about the football team, Marvin?" "Oh, are they marching tonight too?" out." "Any injuries or substitutions?" "Not that I know." "Didn't you use to date the co-captain?" "Date! Are you kidding? Practice, practice, practice. That's like dating someone with the flu. They're either perspiring, taking liquids or resting." "I know what you mean. All they want to talk about Is the By r- Dialogue Friday's Jfhool 7 "The Var." ;"It should. They've been training all summer. I heard over 200 came out." - "I know. I used to come up lo the high school at 8 in (he Jtnorning and they'd be going 4hrough calisthenics ... ablaut 54,000 push-ups, a hundred H ups and then they'd jog for tw or three hours. By the time their mothers picked them up, they'd collapse In the $ar." ' "Did you see that maneuver?" "Groovy." . "How do they memorize all Ithose plays?" "Beats me. Did you know ,'they were second in the district last year?" '. "Yeah, that was a great year." "Look at that. What would you call it?" "Backfield in motion, I guess." "Groovy." "Did you see the end double back?" "They're tough, no doubt about it." - Fast In November ( V MR. AND MRS. ALFRED MILLS I Mb Couple Celebrates Their Sixty-First the ocean side, 3.3 ft. in the lake. Venus Is a striking sight in the sky to the southward of the setting sun all during the month. It becomes visible long before dark, and shines brightly for the next couple of hours. Mercury at the beginning of the month is just coming out from the glare of the sun. Toward the end of the month It will be easier to observe and brighter. Look for it just ahead of the rising sun. Mars and Jupiter both are southeast of the star Denebo-la, roughly on a line connecting Regulus (in the Lion) and Spica (in the Virgin). They rise at about half past two in the middle of the month, an hourlater at the beginning, an hour earlier at the end. Saturn, the last of the planets visible without Instru ments, take 29 years to go once around the sun. So it's still dawdling in the constellation Pisces ( the Fishes ) . The bright star in the South-south-east at sunset at the beginning of the month, and due South at the end of the month, Ls Formalhaut in the Southern Fish. Orion, that typical winter constellation, rises a couple of hours after dark at the beginning, shortly after dark at the end of the months. Sirius the brightest of all fixed stars is only an hour behind. The current show at the planetarium "ONE OF OUR PLANETS IS MISSING" will entertain you with an astronomical detective story. And you'll find out about some strange planets, craters of the moon, and metorites. SALVATION 1RXY 'I tirv hp vntio SALVAGE FURNITURE, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Mills, 327 27th St., celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary recently, with a luncheon for close friends at the Marina Inn. Guests attending the luncheon were: Mr. and Mrs. Richard Chrlsler, Mr. and Mrs. Alden Tlfft, Mrs. Nellie Lamb, Mrs. Christine Stewart, Mrs. Amelia Sheehy, and Miss Betty Bogart.

Having set back our clocks to Standard Time, we find it lighter when we get up, but pay the price by having It dark an hour earlier in the evening. Approaching winter makes our days shorter at both ends as the month wears on. The length of day in the Palm Beaches shrinks from 11 hours 11 minutes at the beginning of the month, to 10 hours 39 minutes at the end. At the same time the sun rises and sets a little farther South each day. The sun is "fast" all this month. A properly set-up sun dial would show noon at 11:44 EST on the first of the month, at 11:49 on the last. The sun is not supposed to be highest In the sky and bear due South in our area until about twenty minutes past twelve, Eastern Standard Time. The fast sun and this time difference partly cancel one another. So "noon" during November will be at 12:04 on the first, at 12:09 on the last day of the month. Old almanacs call this month's full moon the "Hunter's Moon." On the seventh and the tenth ' the waning moon will pass directly overhead in the Palm Beaches. Between these dates it will be a little north of the zenith when it is highest In the sky. That's something our northern visitors don't get at home. On the 16th and 29th the moon will rise almost exactly In the East, set almost due West. The moon is near apogee farthest from Earth at the time of the full moon, so the range of spring tides then will not be especially great. Tides forecast: 3.3 ft. at the beach, 2.3 ft. in Lake Worth at the port of Palm Beach. At the time of the new moon It will be In perigee nearest Earth. The range of tides on the 21st is she greatest of the year, a predicted 4.3 feet on sty ItUn kwl (jMss (ffizzn is 1 f I King Features Syndicate, Inc., 1 968. 1 imsysr rjiw j X Vifiss Zip Pit f i ' r 1 t m V 'X A tyv a pe. styles E..A.
