Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - March 7, 1970, Abilene, Texas iiiiiiiiiiiiii m Abilene Reporter PARTIAL CLEARING * SSBfi ....''ills P«m IF    “'WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT GOES"—Byron 89TH YEAR, NO. 262 PHONE 673-4271ABILENE, TEXAS, 79604, SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 7, 1970-THIRTY-TWO PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS IOC DAILY-20c SI NDAV AtmcintM Pre,,{IP} ASTRONOMERS WARN ABOUT WATCHING Might Eclipse for Abilenians One of nature’s phenomena-an eclipse of the sun — may be spoiled for Big Country viewers Saturday because of another of nature's mysteries — the weather. The weatherman said Friday the skies should start clearing off Saturday morning and will be partly cloudy in the afternoon. Ile said there is a 50-50 chance the sky will be cloud) at noon when the eclipse reaches a maximum. lf the clouds block Saturday's eclipse, it will be a long wait to see another one. A total solar eclipse will not occur in any part of the continental United States again for 54 years. Saturday, Abilenians will see a 75 per cent eclipse beginning about IO:30 a.m. and lasting un til about 1:15 p m. A member of tho Abilene Astronomical Society, Willis Cox, advised viewers to begin watching about I) a.rn. The maximum eclipse should occur about 11:55. However, Owen Clark, a member of th© Abilene Astronomical Society said, “You will never know' when lie maximum eclipse occurs, After it has come to the maximum and then gone, you will know it has passed.” But he added that since Abilene will not experience a total eclipse, it will be impossible to tell the maximum eclipse has been reached. Mrs. Carlton Hodges, another member of the Astronomical Society, said no particular place in the Abilene area will necessarily be better for viewing the eclipse than any other. She said any place in Abilene or for several miles around would be just as advantageous as another. The Texas Society for the Prevention of Blindness warns that direct viewing of an eclipse can be very dangerous. Richard E. White, president of the state astronomical society, said, “There is no safe way to view the eclipse directly ” A safe, indirect method of viewing the eclipse, recommended by the society, is a simple projection device that anyone can make. Two pieces of white cardboard are all that's needed: a pinhole or pencil hole in the top cardboard serves to project and focus the image of a****:-.,.    ::    ■%***» ■AH Nixon Laos Talk Doesn Still Critics the eclipse on the second cardboard. “The public must be made aware that so - called protective devices, such as sunglasses, smoked glass or film negatives, do not protect the eyes from infra - red rays,” Whit© said Bob Fields, president of the Abilene society, agreed with White’s warning and his statement that “Although any eclipse poses an eye hazard, the danger of the March 7 eclipse is multiplied simply because of its availability.” It is believed the path this eclipse will take makes it ‘ available’’ to more people than any other in history. the dark spotlight of tile moon’s shadow will touch Florida at 1:17 p.m., EST, then race up 1,500 miles per hour up through Georgia and the Carolinas and then dart out to sea at Norfolk, Va. It will cross over U.S. land again at Nantucket, Mass. The beginning of this path of totality, about 85 miles wide, is in the Pacific Ocean, and it will cross over Mexico where hundreds of scientists are stationed Lost going to grandma's Four small Youngsters, from left, Jose, IO; ( ladis, ll; Dennis. 6; and Angelo Colon. 9. eat hamburgers at a Greenwich, Conn., police station Friday.

Police said the wide - eved waifs had no tickets and no money. The children have been temporarily lodged in two private homes through the city’s Department of Social services — but not until after getting filled up on hamburgers and soft drinks.

The 3.800-mile aerial service bv Alaskan Airlines between Anchorage and Khabarovsk received final approval of the Soviet Union Thursday. At Khabarovsk the tourists will be taken over by the Soviet state airline Aeroflot for trips to places such as Bratsk, which claims the world’s biggest hydroelectric plant, and Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest fresh water lake. Transportation Consultants International, a travel organization, has booked IO flights for a total of 1,200 persons, beginning June 6 and ending Sept. 27. Their trips will last 8 to 15 days, and those on the longer ones will go on from Siberia to Samarkand, Tashkent, Kiev and Moscow. Robert Giersdorf, vice presi dent of Seattle-based Alaskan Airlines, said anybody else who wants to go to Siberia can book a seat in the usual way. “I think there will be some snob appeal,” he declared. The airline has designed stewardess costumes for the new service based on the garb worn by the cossacks of Czarist days. One outfit consists of a red minitunic with mandarin collar, black sash and multicolored braid. For outside wear, the girls will slip into red maxi coats, black fur hat and black, calf-hugger boots. The airplane menu on the long flight will feature such Russian-oriented delicacies as borsch, caviar, crab legs, sturgeon and chicken Kiev. Giersdorf said he hoped the tourist flights would lead to regular commercial service between ‘he western United States and the Soviet Union.
