20 _ THE IETMBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, Juno 3, Behave Like Drunken Drivers New Knowledge About Star Systems By ALTON BI-AKHSMCE NEW YORK (AP) Astrono- mers have found new knowledge about star systems in which stars seem to behave like drun- ken drivers going every which way on celestial superhighways fantastic speeds. Up to of these stars seem to be racing around at velocities of miles per miles per hour -in a rather confined space In ics-are so extremely bright in could offer a spectacular sight, the universe tho heavens, the astronomers with billions of bright stars Often they ram into Monday. close by. and frequent cxplo- other. 'Then' they explode, or parts of two stars fuse togi'llier, scientists think. The collisions e cosons produce indeed such stars could, or did, riicndDiis amounts of light and! have any planets that might radiation. And that could be] bear life, says Dr. Martin wliv these particular slay sys- j Schwarzdiikl of Princeton Um- teins-known as Seyfert galas. 1 versity. On the other band, it Because ot the collisions nnd i sions producing fireworks Dr. Schwarzchild and Dr. Robert Daniclson of Princeton reported photographic studies of galaxy star, if a Seyfert galaxy and of the planet Uranus made with a four-ton telescope carried in a giant plastic balloon to an alti- tude of nearly 16 miles last t March 26-27. 'Hie Seyfert type of galaxy- less than 12 have been spotted extremely small and in- tensely bright. By contrast, the sun of our solar system is just one star among or more that belong to the family or gal- axy called the Milky Way. Dr. Schwarzchild said In a telephone interview that the sun and other stars in the Milky Way travel around at about 2 miles per second, rela- tive to one another, and tend to keep their place in the rotation of the whole galaxy with each star travelling about J30 miles per second in that orderly pro- cession. In a Seyfert galaxy, each star stems to whip along at miles per second, in a tight space within the nucleus of the galaxy. The nucleus seems to be only 12 light years wide and may be even less, the new studies find. A light year is the distance light travels within a year at a velocity of miles per second, or some six trillion miles a year. The Milky Way is at least light years "wide." A Seyfert galaxy can have stars in its tight nucleus, and two such stars ap- parently can encounter and col- lide with one another on nn av- erage of once every four months, Dr. Schwarzchild said. That could produce the bright and variable light observed in such galaxies. By contrast, a space of 12 light years in the Milky Way system would contain only fivo stars, not and the chances of a collision would bo only once in some millions ol years, astronomers estimate.

He just to tie a rag around the broken pipe, and he'll try to make it here by next Wednesday." "Sorry to trouble you, Mrs. Grubbs, but if your husband doesn't make the mortgage payment befor'e our bank closes tomorrow, we'll have to take legal action." '.'Mom, can't you drive me to school today, please, please? If you don't I'll be late, and if I'm late just one more time I might as well be- come a dropout." "My mother didn't spend afternoon watching soap operas or playing bridge with her cronies." "Why do we have to live way out here in the sticks, Mom? It's like being a pris- oner. The kids in the city have lots more things to do." "Do you think it's any fun lor me to have to ride stand- ing up in a crowded train 40 minutes every morning and afternoon going to and from WHAT?

STUDIED LSD EFFECT LOS ANGELES (AP) A University of California study says that taking LSD may in- crease a woman's chance of suf- fering a miscarriage. But LSD taken under a physician's care doesn't seem to affect the chance of having deformed or premature babies, it says. Dr. William McGlothlin, a research psychologist, assembled data on 148 pregnant women who had taken LSD under doctors' super- vision. Their miscarriage rate was 26 per cent, about twice normal. cases a year, valued at approximately 11 can turn out more than lins of sardines daily, shipped as far away as Australia, New Zealand and Malaya. The com- pany also markets larger her- ring, clam chowder, finnan had- die and fish cakes. The late Senator Neil McLean and his brother, Dr. Allan Mc- Lean, took over the operation in 1923. The present president is Senator Donald A. McLean, a first cousin. Mighty tides, crashing across Fundy twice every 24 hours, churn up marine plants and mi- croscopic plankton on which herring feed, attracting them in countless millions. These condi- tions encouraged brothers Lewis and Patrick Connors to start fishing the area in 1885. CHANGED TACTICS First they sold their catch to canneries opening along the Maine coast. They then decided the fish could be packed fresher if canned locally. Thus the world's largest sardine cannery was started as the world's smallest. After the McLean takeover the pack of 1923 rose to by 1959. Nov more than a billion sardines are processed annually. The ocean to-can operation scon after the fish are taken from the water starts with weirs and deep-sea seiners. The weirs, made of brush and twine, are assembled on 40-to- 60-foot piling driven into the mud, built in horseshoe shape and cover an acre of more. To protect what often is a family investment, they may not he constructed within IjGOO feet of each other. Fish carried into the weirs (close to shore) by the high flood tide are surrounded witli a large net. Its bottom is drawn together to form a pouch which gets smaller as the bottom is pulled together, forcing the sar- dines to the surface where they are pumped through a giant hose into waiting boats. Open water seining is done in much the same way, excepting that the seiners use electronic equipment to detect fish instead of relying on weirs. Nothing is wasted in the var- ious processes. The scales, heads and tails are used: for making essence of pearl, oil, fish-meal and protein trale for stock feed.
