Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today 'Nova' Hunt For Quark NEW YORK (NYT) The "Nova" series has returned to public television, on Sundays at p.m., and is quite nice- ly living up to ils own billing as "science adventures for curious grownups." The hour-long productions, either made by station WGB11 Bos- Ion or imported from the Bril- ish Broadcasting Corporation, can be almost deceptively di- verting or unashamedly de- manding. It's the kind of mix that salvages the reputation of educational television. There is moro than (he usual dollop of research1 method in its success. Michael Ambrosi- no, the executive producer, was allowed lo spend several months in England observing Ihe science library and pro- jects of the BBC. In addition to gaining some practical ex- pertise, he was able to make some outstanding acquisitions for his own series. The WGBH productions tend to be realtively modest. "Why Do Birds produced by Ben Shedd, used the data of an interrelated group of sci- entists and some first-rate photography to decipher the singing and territorial iiabits of birds. Among the findings: birds of a single species but from different areas develop distinct sound "dialects." This Sunday's program, pro- duced by David Patterson for the BBC, was a considerably more complex and, perhaps intentionally, ambivalent en- deavor called "The Hunting of the The quark, a word coined by James Joyce in "Finnegan's is the elementary suhunil that may, or then again may not, be dis- covered inside the proton. There is no conclusive proof Hy John j. O'Connor__ of ils existence, but the mere possibility is significant in explorations into the myster- ies of atom. The seareli was placed with- in a context of highly sophisti- cated and advanced physics. Multimillion-dollar research projects were recorded in Eng- land. Switzerland and the United States. An internation- al battery of physicists, some of them Nobel prize- winners, was brought on camera for de- tailed and generally helpful commentary. The giant efforts can hardly be dismissed but, simply on the basis of this documentary, they can certainly he ques- tioned. With bigger and bigger machinery being built to find smaller and Smaller particles, which may not exist, Ihe costs are astronomical. Meantime, the internal and international political jockeying for funding and influence grows more in- tense. Why? One prominent Amer- ican physicist, barely able to control his enthusiasm, offered this explanation: "It's the re- sult of curiosity it's im- possible to stop." After exam- ing several convincing theor- ies for the existence of the quark, the BBC program con- cluded with the results of some new experiments that seem to demolish those theories. WGBH provided its own coda, in which still an- other scientist cast a shadow of doubt over the new experi- ments! That scientist provided the most reasonable 'rationale for theoretical research: The point "is not an accumulation of facts but high strides in understanding through peri- odic syntheses.'' The quark still lives, maybe. In any case. "Nova" provided an ab- sorbing portrait of the ab- stract and intense world of modern physics.

He was 08 and had been president for 17 months. Childers, CD, suffered a licari attack Saturday night during a speech to an audience of doctors on the stresses of modern life He died early Sunday in a Dub- lin hospital. The body was taken to St. Patrick's hall in Dublin ensile, where it will lie in slate until Wednesday. Funeral services will be held Thursday, which Prime Minister Liam Cosgravc designated as a day of na- tional mourning. Childers, a former depuly prime 'minister and popular vet- eran politician, was elected Ire- land's fourth president after the retirement of Eamon de Valera. He was the son of Robert Ers- kine Childers, a British army officer who sided with de Valera during Ihe 1021-22 Irish civil war and was executed by Ihe nev Irish Free State for possessioi of guns. Childcrs, then 1C, was taken to say goodbye to 'his father in prison and later recalled: "He lold me to shake the hand of those who had signed his execu- tion warrant, never to bear a grudge, and to ensure that civil war never blackened Ireland again." Childers made that his philso- pliy and won broad public sup- port. He worked for reconciliation with Northern Ireland, where the Protestant majority is intent on retaining ties with Britain. Childers' mother was an American, the former Mary Al- der Osgood of Boston. He was educated at Cambridge univer- sity. Childcrs had two sons by his first wife, who died, and a daughter by his second wife, Rita.
