Blue Collar and service workers will increase in numbers but their relative share of the employment totals is expected to decline. White Collar workers will increase greatly. Fogging system under attack Thomasville mayor Dalton Myers told councilmen monday that he had spoken with a prominent physician in the City and that he had been informed that the City fogging operation could be harmful to people with liver ailments. The doctor who Myers said wished to remain Anonymous also said that such people May not be Able to throw off the effects of coming into Contact with the fog. The City has been operating the fogging device Over the years during the summer months to help control flies and mosquitoes. Because of citizen complaints.

It was suggested that the City could better control the pests by cleaning up old tires and other areas that might serve As Breeding places. A Host of factors Are seen in this development fewer people will be leaving the farm to take jobs in town because most have already done that who intend to. Fewer unskilled workers a women and Blacks particularly a will be Landing jobs because the Market will become saturated. Those factors put the Burden on the states schools to help people be ready a the educational system must produce both Long Range and More immediate improvements in educational attainments.

A Galaxy is a colossal collection of stars and our own Galaxy the Milky Way contains about 200,000 million stars the Milky Way is so huge that it is impossible to express distances in Miles. So we use a different unit of measure a Light year the distance that Light travels in one year at the rate of 186,000 Miles per second we space age earthlings have become somewhat accustomed to dealing with astronomical figures. We know our life giving Sun is 93 million Miles away from us we also know that All other stars Are so far away that we speak of the distances in terms of Light years for example. The closest Star seen at night is Alpha centaurs. It is about 25 trillion Miles away from Earth or four Lightyear Distant. In other words if you could travel at the Speed of Light. 186.000 Miles per second it would take you four years to reach Alpha centaurs. Astronomers Tell us that there Are billions of galaxies in the universe and that each Galaxy contains billions of stars. Our Sun and All the planets in our solar system plus All the stars in our sky belong to the Milky Way Galaxy which is about too too Light years across if you were an astronaut out in space looking Down at our Galaxy you would see a Bright spiral of glowing Light a something like a giant Pinwheel our entire solar system is out in one of the spiral arms of this huge celestial Structure speeding around the Center at about 560,000 in p h. Yet it takes about 200 million years for our solar system to make just one trip around the Center of our Galaxy. Astronomers can Only speculate on the number of galaxies in the universe Only three galaxies beyond our own Milky Way can be seen without the Aid of a Telescope two appear As huge Stellar Clouds Over the Southern hemisphere and were named for the explorer Magellan. In our own Vicinity there Are 17 galaxies located within a Region 2 million Light years in diameter. These and thousands of other galaxies have been photographed through such High powered telescopes As the 200-Inch Hale Telescope at Palomar Observatory in California galaxies Are usually classified according to their appearance. The Milky Way is a spiral Galaxy because it has a disk like shape with spiralling arms some galaxies Are elliptical or nearly circular in shape others Are barred and a Small percentage have such indefinite shapes that they Are called irregular. If a Galaxy appears Reddish then it is probably an older system containing stars which have gone through their evolutionary process very slowly. The stars have smaller masses than our Sun and they eventually expand into red giant stars. If the Galaxy is Blue it probably contains very hot Young stars which evolve rapidly and soon fizzle out.

Television log observing the National convention by Jay Sharbutt a television writer Kansas City to. Apr the trouble with being a member of the North Carolina delegation Down there on the floor at the gof National convention is that the to cameras Block your View of Walter Cronkite. And John Chancellor and David Brinkley. The platforms bearing the to cameras and photographers weren to obstructing our View of the Abc Booth Way above us and to the right. But i did t see Harry Reasoner or Howard k. Smith their Booth seemed poorly i lit with Only a few to monitors dimly glowing. It was in Sharp contrast to the Bright unexpectedly hot lights under which your observer sat in the crowded Kemper Arena posing As a North Carolina Delegate around this bogus Delegate sat 53 other delegates All the genuine article from the tar Heel state the object of my exercise was to watch the network troops watch us with or without their to camera and microphones As the convention commenced in prime time before millions of viewers across the nation monday night. In the unlikely event cd so a Dan rather. No cd a Cassie Mackin or abcs Ann Compton thrust Forward a microphone and sought my views As a North carolinian a plan was devised with Aid of a kindly Delegate sitting next to me. She was mrs Karol Goebel a Greensboro housewife Mother of two and co chairman of Ronald Reagan s primary Campaign in Guilford county n c she said she d Tell the reporters her Friend had a very bad sore Throat and could t speak so from 7 p in cdtto8 15 i observed in mortal fear of detection Tell the truth it was kind of Boring cd so a Morton Dean and miss Mackin initially stood to the front of us up near the podium several Hundred Yards away casing the joint possibly peering at the 154-member new York delegation behind us but nothing happened. After the pledge of allegiance prayer and the National Anthem. I stretched my neck and saw Dan rather up front near the Michigan delegation interviewing a Man in a red Gor Cap could t hear a thing i d heard that network floor reporters tend to Cluster when they get a live one but the Only Cluster came when Betty Ford two sons and one daughter and vice president Rockefeller a wife entered the Arena to heavy cheering Only two to cameras per network Are allowed at any one time on the convention floor so there were quite a few times the Well known Well paid correspondents work ing our area were seen striding purposefully about without a Crew it was sort of like watching a championship Bronco busting contest without Broncos a All those folks leaping up and Down with nothing beneath them but watching the convention with my delegates who showed no interest in the correspondents was mighty impressive with All its Power to convey images television just can t convey the often intense excitement that flows Back and Forth on the floor. 2 win.
