•LTW1T1LLI (ARK.T OOURT» M5WI Moon Will Start Its Dramatic Show Over U. S EclipM wiH tint touch U. 5. Ot smrist, north- of (XNta, Neb. This it how tht MlipM will look to anyone along the umbra «r pith rf total shadow. The corona, or sun's outer then of gat, is normally invisible. But in in eclipt*, it burst i into view, flashing brilliant eolors—red near the sun's surface, yeHow and pearly white farther out. Take Care DON'T DOT fvw look at ttvt tun with the naked eye during partial MlipM. DON'T wtar ordinary sun glasses or even so- called "dark" glasses. They are inadequate. r On June 30, thousands of Americans will see the most dramatic event in the sky—a total eclipse of tfee sun. It is produced by the moon's coming between earth and sun, blacking out the latter. Black line on map above .shows the path of totality. While few places in the U. S. are within that path, practically •veryone east of the Rockies can see at least a partial early morning eclipse—weather permitting. Best -spot in the U. S. for viewing the total eclipse is Minneapolis, because the sky there is least often overcast. Arrows on the map point to sites of 10 observation points for teams of U S. and foreign scientists. This, the most comprehensive study of a solar eclipse in history, is being financed by the U. S. Air Force, hopeful of scientific data to promote accurate aiming of guided missiles. The moon's shadow makes its 8,000-mile journey in two hours and 45 minutes. That's about 3000 miles an hour. Observations, a year M preparation, will have to be made within three and a half minutes as the shadow races along. DO use several pieces of overexposed graphic film.... .. or use a piece of heavily smoked glass. Don't take unnecessary chances by watching the eclipse with your naked eyes. Above charts show you what and-what not to do while watching the spectacle. SLOWPOKE—Even Air Force Maj. "Chuck" Yeager, flying the famous X-1A plane at 1600 miles an hour couldn't, keep up with the gigantic shadow of the moon as it moves across the earth during the June 30 eclrpse of the sun. The shadow ccvers the entire distance of about 8000 miles in two hours and 4o mmutes-an average speed of 3000 miles an hour. Perhaps, by the time of. the next total, eclipse, on Oct. 26, 2144, the Air Force will have a plane fast enough to track it. National Party. Officials View Maryland Vote BALTIMORE (^—National party j officials showed special interest in j three • of the seven congressional j fights and state political leaders' kept close watch on the Democrat- j ic primary for governor today as', Marylanders named their candidates j lor the November elections. Despite this high-level attention and an exceptionally bitter cam- peign by Dr. H. C. Byrd and paving contractor George P. Ma-honey for the Democratic governor nomination, the primary stirred little apparent interest among the voters. Election supervisors predicted ac- eut one third of the 1.065,180 eligible* would turn out. An even smaller showing was ex- pected on the Republican side, where Gov. Theodore R. McKeldin sought renomination to a second term in a state where his party is outnumbered 2-1 by the Democrats. The GOP campaign had produced few fireworks. McKeldin practically ignored his three opponents, Baltimore used car dealer Temus R. , retired Marine Lt. Gen. Pedel Valle and James W. Gum, the GOP holding a of the seven Maryland congressional seats, national . chief- tians of both parties looked for sore spots and possible November breakthroughs.

SEOUL (#1 — A stony outcropping in the Japan sea which admittedly is not normally habitable will be defended against "trespassing" of Japanese fishermen by a 20-man Korean garrison force, according to South Korean police. The islet — Tokto to the Koreans, Takeshima to the Japanese — is the center of a fishing area- Both Japan and Korea claim the islet which lacks drinking water among other things. Truman Better after Passing Critical Phase; Still Serious KANSAS CITY Of) — Former President Harry S. Truman was reported somewhat better today after passing through a critical phase in his post-operation convalescence. His condition, however, remained serious. A hospital 7 spokesman said the 70-year-old former President went through the critical stage Saturday night but showed improvement yesterday and "had a satisfactory day." , He underwent surgery eight days ago for removal of his gall bladder and appendix. Robert Adams, acting administrator at Research Hospital said Truman's complications over the weekend were secondary and not the direct result of the emergency operation. Adams said his recovery had been hampered by secondary infections and hypersensitivity to drugs needed in the treatment. Several specialists were called into the case to assist Truman's personal physician. Dr. Wallace Graham, and two other doctors. Adams said that Truman continued to show remarkable spirit. Mrs. Truman visited her husband again last night after spending much of the. day at the hospital Their daughter Margaret is acting in a play at Binghamton, N.Y., and there are no plans at present for her to return home. The hospital said that after going through the critical phase, Truman's temperature, "greatly re- Missouri has serve banks. two Federal Re- IN THE PROBATE COURT OF THE CH1CKASAWBA DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF No. 2,250 HUGH G.

UNMY-CLIANMS is the price too hi .. The dollar cost of providing increased water supplies under current conditions will be high. Will it be too high? It might appear to be more economical to wait for a downward curve in the whole structure of prices and wages before undertaking the kind of construction programs required to meet our needs. But where are the signs that such a curve is in the making? And how long can we afford to wait? It took just one hoi, dry summer to imperil the water supply of many millions of people. Suppose next year—or the year after— brings similar conditions? Picture a shortage that goes beyond the critical stage. New York was only days away from such a crisis. Some smaller places went through it. I Picture a water supply inadequate to handle a serious fire Picture a water supply insufficient to maintain proper sanitation. Picture a water supply no longer able to keep industrial processes functioning. The price of keeping pace with the need for water may seem high, but what about th pric of failure? One uncontrolled fire, one epidemic, a group of major industires lost to the community—any of these could involve an expense beside which the price of imported water supplies even with costs what they are —would hardly be noticable. Water is essential to life—the life of a city as well as the life of a human being. Without water, a man dies. Without water, a community faces the same fate. . In the face of a crisis, no price can be too high. High prices paid to prevent a crisis are low prices! Blytheville Water Co. "Woftr /s Your C/itoptst Commodity" ceded" from about 102 degrees.
