Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Milky Way explosions baffling Nivimbir 13, THE IETHBRIDOI HCTAID _ Si By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service NEW YORK Reports re- ceived from observatories in various parts of lie world indi- cate that lour explosions of a seemingly unprecedented nat- ure were recorded in Septem- ber within the Milky Way Gal- aiy, or star system, of which na-th is a narl. In recent years extremely vio- lent events have been delected in distant parts of the universe, challenging astrophysicists for an explanation. However, apart from the rare stellar explo- sions, or supernovae, no such outbursts have been observed so close by. II, as now suspected, the Sep- Inrniip- represent a common, but hitherto unrecog- nized occurrence within the Milky Way, this may provide a tool for understanding the distant ones and their energy source. The first outburst was record- ed by radio astronomers at the I University of Toronto on Sept. 2 and they alerted colleagues around the world. A check of obfcrvatorles week his re- vealed that, all told, four tuch events occurred before the month was out. The observations were made by radio telescopes, by the world's largest operating opti- cal telescope (on Mount Palo- mar in and by a variety of other instruments in- cluding x-ray scanner! aboard three earth satellites. The lat- ter included one of the Penta- gon's "watchdogs" for nuclear explosions. So extensive were the obser- vations and the speculations as to their meaning that the entire Oct. 23 issue of the Bri- tish journal, Nature Physical Science, Is devoted to such re- ports the first time one Issue has been devoted to a single subject. Each explosion manifested It- sell in the form of radi emis- sions from A gas cloud expand- ing at about half the speed of light. The emissions were typical of those from electrons gyrating wildly within the mag- netic fields of an expanding cloud.

That is the reason more customers are being asked to sign their cheques in the presence of tell- ers. Such losses amount lo about S3 million annually in Canada, well ahead of robbery losses.

By VIRGINIA WAHHKS New York Tinirs Service NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. Meals eaten away Irom home, whether voluntary (say on an airliner) or involuntary (a wor- ker's are increasing at eiich a rate that they arc mak- ing up the fastest grownng seg- ment of the food industry. And with these meals the consum- er has only a certain amount of leeway in trying to achieve good nutrition. "As a matter of litl. most people, even when they can ex- ercise belter- choice, don't do Dr. Paul Lachance, who directs research at Rutgers Uni- versity, said the other day. So, since people won't change Iheir eating habits, the thing lo do, concludes and fellow nutritionists nl Ihe slate university, is lo change the kind. For example.
