First of all, government scientists decided on the best. possible place for viewing the moon passing over the sun's face. For the February 25 eclipse, they have settled on ' Khartoum, halfway around the world in the Anglo- Egyptian Sudan.- After some preliminary work in the slates, a field team headed by Dr. George van 'Biesbroeck, Ycrkcs Observatory astronomer, went to Khartoum. around January 1. Dr. Van Biesbroeck reported to his Pentagon superiors this week: "It's 98 dgerees in the shade just now." Then, he added a. bit ruefully: "And this is the cold season!" Eight weeks' planning at Khartoum was necessary for the important three minutes. Concrete footings were poured to support the National Geographic Society's huge, tripod-mounted telescope- camera. The instrument was shipped to the Sudan back in November. When 7.cro hour tomes on the 25th, the American team may find that all its work has been Jot New Automatic Washer COME IN See the Automatic that Washes YOUR Way!

That's why Khartoum was chosen. Rains anij clouds.'are practically unknown thcrt In February. The Air Force considers the study very important. It hopes to be able to chart vast areas of the earth's surface for n6w air maps with less than a 200-foot margin of error. · That requires split-second precision. And that means months and months of preparations and some sizzling heat to endure. Incidentally, Americans at home won't see the eclipse. Its path will sweep in an arc of 8,000 miles from near the Equator to the middle of the Atlantic on one side and Southern Siberia on the other. Khartoum will be right in the middle of the arc.
