It seems like a rare event to us when we see one in the sky — but did you know that probably thousands of them fell to earth each day and night? Since most of the earth's surface is covered by water, the fragments usually fall into oceans and lakes. Nobody yet has been able to prove what meteors are, but scientists have a theory about them that they believe to be true. Astronomers say that meteors are the broken fragments of comets. When comets break up, the millions of fragments continue to move through space as a meteor swarm or stream. The swarms move in regular obits, or paths, through space. Some of the larger fragments may become detached from a swarm and so travel through space singly. Many meteors may also be fragments of the solar system which were not gathered into the planets at the time of their origin. The reason we can see the meteors in their flight through space is that when they are within the atmosphere of the earth the air rubs upon their surfaces. This friction produces heat and makes them look as bright as a star. Most individual meteor particles are quite small — no bigger than the head of a pin. Such a tiny piec of matter of course, is destroyed by the heat during Us passage through the earth's atmosphere. So when a meteor reaches t h e earth, it must have been quite a large body of matter to start with. And there are some meteors that weigh many tons. A piece ol meteor that reaches the earth is called § "meteorite." There are two main kinds meteorites. There are those con posed chiefly of nickel and iron These are called the "metallic meteorites. Some are composec of minerals and look like a piec of ingeneous rock (rock forme by melting heat). These are cal ed "stoney" meteorites or "Ae elites." The outer surfaces of eithe kind usually have black crust which are the result of the terrifi heat they went through in passin through the atmosphere. FUN TIME The Kiddle Box 1.

Free Shakespeare Loses Actors NEW YORK (AP) _ Free Shakespeare, says Joseph Papp, is finding it hard to compete with the Ford Foundation. Papp, who began the Shakespeare festival which is staged each summer In Central Park, has recently turned attention to setting up a school for actors in the classic tradition. He reports enlistment of recruits became difficult after the philanthropic institution gave a grant to the American Shakespeare Theater at Stratford, Cann., for a training program of his own. "We have lost several young actors," he declares, "and are at a serious disadvantage." The Ford Foundation explains it aids only projects which Iwve eventual hope of becoming self, supporting through box office revenue. The local project, which charges no admission, raises operating funds through contrtb«. tJon campaigns. ""* Qoveronjent Huituuiuj Cash to save cash
