Pierce a cou- ple of years ago should he inler- e.sled in learning llial the New York papers made a big deal out of his Lrial by fire in North Caro- lina. There were columns of fea- lure sluff, and mncho photos taken with the wide-angle lens. His progressive-education pupils were shown at Camp Rosman, N. C., before the descendants (as some think) of the Lost Colony of Virginia scl tile torch to it. And they were shown, again, as they retreated to the safety of Mid- vale, N. J., where Summerlane (which is what George calls his youth camps) is an accepted in- stitution. For myself, it made me sad. George was (probably still is) one of those young ones you meet, maybe once in 10 years, whose brilliance leaves you breathless. Logic, historical reference, shock- ing candor and a burning love of life pour out of them in a flow of rhetoric more usually associated with elder missionaries or the United Slates Senate. (The rhet- oric. I mean.) And although you sometimes don't know where the noise is coming from, you are left stunned usually with ad miration, if not with numb ad oration (as in females.) For my self, I mistrusted George at first Later, when his fortunes here changed, and after he married a bright litlle arlist, 1 got a glimpse of Uie man inside the dislike turned into sympathy thai with time might have ripened into friendship. Today, I wonder how his former lionizers would trea him, if he returned to Forl Pierce and if 1 would have the nerve to say, "George, what a waste o. (ine brains you are. On? of the N.

The N'ows Tribune, noting that he figure was approximately 300 aercs more than was asked lor in the' resolution drafted by the Board of Commissioners at their ast meeting, doubted the aulhcn- .icily of Ihe report. A long telephone interview with Van Ferguson, director of the II Fund, continued the suspicion, and The News Tribune was the First news media to publish the correct story in full detail. Most of the local conservation- ists were out of town and could not be reached for comment. R. J. Amos, president of the In- dian River Preservation expressed disappointment with Ihc decision. "I'm quite disappointed thai they didn't deed all we request' ed of them as outlined in the resolution." Amos said.

Simmons, executive director of the council, II is cxiicctcd that the phenom- enon will receive wide coverage on all television stations and Sim- mons recommended the eclipse be observed through this medium. This writer recalls that 40 years for so) ago, as a child he watch- ed an eclipse through a double thickness of old film. At that time, newspapers car- ried stories urging such methods of viewing the eclipse. But studies and new enlighten- ments by eye experts has reveal- ed thai burns can be caused to the eyes, without pain, by (he unnoliced rays of Ihe sun, which cause a type of damage that can- nol be cured. Florida tomorrow will ness a partial eclipse along with Hie whole Caribbean area and Central America, while the Northern part of hemis- phere will experience a total eclipse. Sunglasses, colored glass smudged wilh smoke, photo film wclder'.s goggles are all on the black list as viewing aids.

The pinhole :crvcs as a tiny lens lo focus the mage of the eclipse onto the sur- ace of the second cardboard, This image may be watched vithout danger lo the eyes. DON'T look at the sun through he pinhole, and DON'T use a mirror to reflect the image. It, oo, will reflect the harmful rays of Hie sun.
