Scientists find second 'black hole in space9 Mass. Astronomers who claimed a year ago to have discovered a mysterious in space say they may have found a second further evidence that such things exist. In a black hole is the final stage of a dying star several times larger than the sun. As the star collapses into becoming smaller and its mass compacts and its gravity becomes so strong that surrounding matter is pulled into it. Since the gravity is so strong that not even light can the dying star appears to be a black area in a field of hence the name Using data from an astronomy satellite scientists of the Centre for Astrophysics here say they have detected radiation from a star they call Circinus X-l with characteristics similar to the suspected black hole they discovered last year. These objects are fascinating to scientists because theory says the normal rules of time and space do not apply within the conditions of a black hole. Prof. Richard Giaconni of Harvard leader of the team claiming the says the existence of a second black hole is important in arguing that the objects exist. To be a black an object must have a measurable mass. The mass can be determined by measuring the effects of its gravity on the motion of another preferably a visible one. This was the case of the first suspected black Cygnus which rotates around a visible star.

Party leader Robert Stanfield told his largest rally of the gathering of from 13 Quebec ridings in St. he would win the greatest number of the 264 federal seats in Monday's general vote. But his former prime minister John said during campaign appearances at Duck that the Liberals and New Democratic Party would form a coalition government if the election fails to produce a majority government. Mr. obviously heartened by his reception in a province that elected only two Conservatives from its 74 ridings in the 1972 said he would form a majority if he gained enough support from Quebec. But he would win the greatest number of Commons seats regardless. during a television appearance at he said Prime Minister Trudeau would be constitutionally entitled to retain power in a minority Parliament even though his party might have fewer seats than the Conservatives. SHOULD RESIGN THEN Although it would be much more clean cut for the prime minister to resign in such a situation. Mr. Stanfield there are historical precedents for a party winning fewer seats than another to remain in power. Former prime minister W. L. Mackenzie King continued in office with the help of an opposition party despite having fewer seats than Conservatives in 1925. Mr Diefenbaker said he based his prediction for an NDP-Liberal coalition on comments made by NDP MPs He said New Democrat members feel their presence in a federal cabinet would bring about a Parliament with a longer life than that of the minority Liberal government defeated in May NDP Leader David Lewis said earlier this week that a coalition with either of the two major parties was out of the question this But Mr. Trudeau said Firestone workers walk off jobs But there is neither East nor nor nor When two strong men stand face to Though they come from the ends of the Kipling Sven Liberal Inserted by the Lethbridge Federal Liberal Association T X CALGARY Workers at Calgary's Firestone tire and rubber plant walked out en masse Thursday despite a provincial board of industrial relations ruling that a partial now three weeks was illegal.
