It can negotiate most existing highways and bridges, turn sharp corners, and speeds at more than 35 miles n hour. (AP Wirephoto) - Clay tiles in blue and white were used extensively in 17th century Mexico to decorate the living quarters and religious rooms of convents. About 372,988 people migrated out of Kentucky between 1940 and 1950 according to an estimate by a University of Kentucky sociologist.

HARMON NELSON Optometrist . Optometrist e)HOMC Of ILLINOIS 'A5?i OPTICAL CO. Illinois Optical Building. 422 Sixteenth Street. Molin ALBUQUERQUE W Throughout the world tonight, professional and amateur astronomers and just plain laymen may be treated to the spectacle of a spacious meteor shower. Dr. Lincoln La Paz, director of the Western world's only Institute of Meteoritics, at the University of New Mexico, said: "There are good reasons to be lieve we will see a respectable' shower Friday night. But, unlike an eclipse, we cannot predict it for sure." In 1946, eight days after Giaco-bini's comet passed through a certain point, the earth arrived at that same point the node and earth's inhabitants were treated to the spectacular shower. "A single observer," La Paz said, "saw more than 200 shooting stars in a minute." The Southwest United States between Albuquerque and the West Coast saw the show, but the rest of the nation, lying under a heavy cloud cover and a full moon, saw nothing. This year earth will reach the node 180 days after the comet passes. Conditions are quite favorable for the shower, La Paz said. There will be no new moon to detract from the brilliance of the sight. Earth passes through the trail of the comet once every six and six-tenths years. DIAL 4-7466 FOR FREE HOME I f In " ti "n OjHb" DEMONSTRATION SEE AMERICA'S MOT FABULOUS NEW TELEVISION!
