'(Include g.5 cents (Bulletin Photo) Chicken Industry Hit Hard by Heat CENTER, Tex. IAP) - The $24 million chicken industry in Shelby county in East Texas has already begun to suffer from the hot weather blanketing the state. One broiler farm reported Friday the loss of 2,750 chickens. Farm Agent Joe. Anderson of Shelby county has urged farm managers to use fans to supplement existing and to place perforated sprinkler hoses atop poultry houses. I ding might start at JOO times the ' space, lvalue of the same amount of 1 diamonds. }f will be a collection of rocks , and dust, hand-picked from the lonely surface of the moon by two American astronauts, the; firsl men on the moon, they ' may be ralher ordinary rocks, | or exotic rocks: in either case they will be priceless because they will be the first specimens : known to have come from the ' moon, or any other known place \ in the universe. , Several hundred impatient j scientists in 13 nations will be i waiting to interrogate these; rocks, pouncing on them for what (bey really represent— i pages out of the history of the mysterious, challenging moon. "Are you dangerous?", will be a first question. Do these rocks carry germs, viruses, peculiar life forms that might sweep in a bizarre epidemic among people on earth? They will be quarantined, isolated, for at least three weeks while this worry is tested out. But then the questions from scientists will flurry. "How were you born?" Tell, tell—is the moon you came from a sister, or a daughter, or a captive wife of this planet earth? Is the moon's deep interior hot or cold? Did a volcano spew you out from inside the moon? Did a meteorite, flashing in from space at 7 to 45 miles per second, rip you from the bowels of | the moon, or in its hellish, cataclysmic explosion create you from molten moon material that then formed into a rock? Tell, tell, tell! This first sample of moon rocks is bound to tell something, i if perhaps only to lease a bit longer the advocates of various theories as to how the moon and earth began, how they are related. Perhaps they will put some theories to death. Is the moon the earth's sister? By this theory, earth and moon began as great clouds of space dust, which condensed under gravitational pressure to form planetary bodies wheeling around the sun, about 4Vi billion years ago. The rocks may answer. Is the moon the earth's daughter? When one great blob of condensing space dust was congealing into more solid matter, was the moon pulled out to become a satellite of the earth? Or—in a theory pretty well discarded— was the moon ripped out of the Pacific Ocean basin eons ago when the earth was spinning faster than now? The rocks may tell. Or was the moon a wandering planet which happened to approach too close to the earth and sun, thus becoming a captive wife of the earth? Does the moon have a molten core at its center—as the earth does—or was it formed "cool," never alive with hot fires from radioactivity or other causes? Were the moon's frefriendous craters and so * called "seas"! formed by volcanic action, or by j the brutal bombardment of j great add small meteorites? Unlike the earth, the moon has no •. cushioning atmosphere to incinerate chunks of stone and metal homing in from outer; beginnings of organic materials out of which life might Spontaneously sprifjg? Some specialists think the moon's seas once were really seas, but that the water long ago evaporated. Dr. Harold Urey. a Nobel laureate and moon specialist, proposes that once, when the moon and earth were much closet together, a great body from space hit the Does the moon have life on or under its surface, even if it be in the form of suspended anima- j earth, splashing a great geyser lion, like a virus that can be! of water onto the moon, car- freeze-dried. Ihen reactivated oh contact with water? Did life on earth begin from curious spores floating in from somewhere in space, as one old theory holds, and if so, could there rying primitive life organisms from the earth to the moon. Other scientists think the moon's dusty surface may contain a history of the moon, sun and space dating back billions not be similar spores on the j of years. The moon's surface nvgn?
