'Nova' Hunt For Quark
NEW YOKE (NYT) - The “Nova” scries has returned to public television, on Sundays at 6:30 p.m., and is quite nicely living up to its own billing as “science adventures for curious grownups.” The 23 hour-long productions, either made by station WG BH Boston or imported from the British Broadcasting Corporation, can bt* almost deceptively diverting or unashamedly demanding. It s the kind of mix that salvages the reputation of educational television.
Tliere is more than the usual dollop of research' method in its success. Michael Ambrosine, the executive producer, was allowed to spend .several months in England observing the science library and projects of the BBG. In addition to gaining some practical expertise, he was able to make some outstanding acquisitions for his own series.
* * *
The WGBH productions tend
to be realtively modest. “Why Do Birds Sing?”, produced by Ben Shedd, used tile data of an interrelated group of scientists and some first-rate photography to decipher the singing and territorial habits of birds. Among the findings: birds of a single species hut from different areas develop distinct sound “dialects.”
This Sunday’s program, produced by David Patterson for the BBC, was a considerably more complex and, perhaps intentionally, ambivalent endeavor called “The Hunting of the Quark”. The quark, a word coined by James Joyce in “Finnegan’s Wake”, is the elementary subunit that may, or then again may not, be discovered inside the proton. There is no conclusive proof
of its existence, but the mere possibility is significant in explorations into the mysteries of the atom.
♦ * *
The search was placed within a context, of highly sophisticated and advanced physics. Multimillion - dollar research projects were recorded in England. Switzerland and the Knifed States. An international battery of physicists, some of them Nobel prize winners, was brought on camera for detailed and generally helpful commentary.
The giant efforts can hardly be dismissed but, simply on the basis of this documentary, they can certainly be questioned. With bigger and bigger machinery being built to find smaller and smaller particles, which may not exist, the costs are astronomical. Meantime, the internal and international political jockeying for funding and influence grows more intense.
* * *
Why? One prominent American physicist, barely able to control his enthusiasm, offered this explanation: "It’s the result of curiosity . . . it’s impossible to stop.” After exam-ing several convincing theories for the existence of the quark, the BBC program concluded with the results of some new experiments that seem to demolish those theories. WGBH provided its own coda, in which still another scientist cast a shadow of doubt over the new experiments.
That scientist provided the most reasonable rationale for theoretical research: The point “is not an accumulation of facts ... but high strides in understanding through periodic syntheses.” The quark still lives, maybe. In any case. “.Nova” provided an absorbing portrait of the abstract and intense world of modern physics.

DUBLIN (AP)- Ireland Monday mourned Erskine Childers, the first Protestant elected president of t Ii e predominantly Homan Catholic republic. He was 68 and had been president for 17 months.
Childers, 68, suffered a heart attack Saturday night during a speech to an audience of doctors on the stresses of modern life. He died early Sunday in a Dublin hospital.
The body was taken to St. Patrick’s hall in Dublin castle, where it will lie in state until Wednesday. Funeral services will be held Thursday, which Prime Minister Liam Cosgrave designated as a day of national mourning.
