Clarksville Man to Probe Skies With Own Telescope CUrkivllle—M. G. Mather, Clarksville amateur astronomer, is rapidly being recognized as one of the country's foremost amateur star gazers.

He was graduated from Iowa State college in electrical and me- chancial engineering. He then started a machine shop in Clarksville which he still maintains. Builds Telescope At present he is constructing a 6-inch refractor telescope developing it into a portable observatory. When it is completed he expects to visit other counties and give people the opportunity to get interesting knowledge about the stars. This telescope will magnify objects 300 to 400 times depending on atmospheric conditions. Mr. Mather recently attended the National Astronomical League convention at Milwaukee, Wis. where authorities on astronomy from all over the nation were present. He being the only one from Iowa. The Yerkes observatory at Williams Bay, Wis., was also visited by Mather as one of the highlights of the convention. Visits Polomar Earlier in the year he visited the Mount Polomar observatory near Los Angeles which contains the 200-inch telescope. He also went to the Mount Wilson observatory. As a result of his studies of the stars he now has a personal index file in which he has catalogued 2,000 stars. The sky is divided into 100 classes of stars. Mather has 55 complete constellations recorded, each having a designated Greek name and having a varying number of stars. He is now anxiously awaiting the glass for his telescope and then plans to organize a Boy Scout Science club for the youth of Clarksville. His immediate family was interested in this study. His wife was graduated from Ames with him in 1907 and taught in the chemical laboratory in Iowa State for many years. She died 4 years ago.
