Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta r LBTNVmOQI Comet i visible shortly NEW YORK Wherever you are in the world in a week or if you ex- amine the sky at dawn carefully may see a small fuzzy blob on the horizon. Eight weeks this spot will have developed into a spectacular streak of pearl- colored filling about a sixth of the night sky like a giant searchlight. It will be the Kohoutek ccm- et -thought to be a chunk 25 left' over from the cosmic turmoil at the creation of the solar system. It is hurtling towards the with a 30-nullion-mile trail of dust and gases in its wake. After it loops around the sun at it won't come back for another years. The best places to observe the two-month display will be mountain tops or desert re- gions where the air is clear of big-city grime. VISIBLE TO ASTRONAUTS The Skylab III will probably get the clearest view as they orbit the earth hundreds of miles above the atmosphere. The unmanned Mariner Ten spacecraft en route to Mercury will relay the first detailed pictures of the Kohoutek will also come un- der the gaze of bal- aircraft and many ra- dio and optical telescopes. The Queen Elizabeth 2 is al- most fully booked for a three- day special cruise off the coast of South Carolina to ob- serve the comet. Lectures and telescopes are being readied for the passengers who have paid and up for the Dec. 9 trip. For it will be the sight of a lifetime. For the it may provide some clues on the makeup of the comet and an standing of the solar system's origin. Prof. Elizabeth Roemer of the University of Arizona said calculations suggest Kohou- named after its Czech- born Lubos comes from a re- gion of outer space bil- lion miles away. She said comets are thought to be made of particles of pri- mordial went to make up the pack- ed with grains of frozen car.bon dioxide and gases. more or less in thdir original state in the deep-free'ze of comets swirl around the making an occasional appear- ance earth when nudged into the right orbit by the chance gravitational pull of a planetary body. Here follows a rough se- quence of what should be ob- servable to the naked eye in the coming Mid-to-end A clear sky at dawn may show a fuzzy but a star chart or 'pair of binoculars will help. First A small tadpole-shaped light spot should be distinctly vis- ible near the rising sun. In the early morning the com- et may appear to have a or even green coloring. Mid-to-end Kohoutek will be nearing the sun and will probably pass from view. On Dec. it will be at its closest point to the sun. It is not advisable for the general public to try to spot it at this certainly not with the fierce glare of the sun might damage the eye. If you must line yourself up with a tall building so that its walls block out the sun. First Kohoutek will be visible at having swooped around the sun. It will appear clearly as a pencil of streaking up from the hori- zon. The of the comet at night will ap- pear as large as the moon. At- tached will be a flaring tail -stretching across a sixth of the southern skies. It will appear to be stationary but in the ensuing weeks will gradually move un- til it disappears from view. ART EXPERT KILLED CAIRO Egyptian police are investigating the death of a prominent United States expert on- ancient art. Police said the body of Dr. Edward bore multiple stab wcunds on the chest and abdomen. They said Terrace was ap- parently killed last week. An authority on Egyptian and an- cient near Eastern Ter- race had worked here since 1971 as a project director for the Princeton-based Vitamin C passes test with flying colors TTF CAJWUTHERS Ottawa HVTMN OTTAWA Vitamin tte purported preventer of the coirmond has been sub- ject' d by '.he Canadian military to wait must be toe most rigorous the Arctic in the dead of v jrter. And it hasp- led with fly- ing .colors fewer than half at many to be exact. In a series of scientific tests undertaken by Detain Re- search Board scientists In the Canadian Arctic last large daily doses of Vitamin C given to soldiers on maneuvers was found to cut the incidence of colds from the normal tt to tt percent to an almost 10 percent. Just as the ascorbic acid treatment in- volving two dotes daily of 590 milligrams of Vitamin C also significantly reduced the severity and .duration of the Blde-effedi of a cold that tend to keep civilians in bed instead of at work and reduce the effectiveness of a fighting such symptoms as general nausea and fever. At the same the treat- ment did not seem to reduce .the severity of local symp- toms of the cold in the nose and throat such things as runny sore throat and CjuapXtd cheat. The research the latest to support the popular belief that Vitamin C In daily doses does prevent were presented to military scientists at a closed- doer Defence Research Board symposium In Ottawa last week. In an interview Dr. Brian Sabiston of DRB's In- stitute of Environmental Health in explained that the soldiers in the ex- periments were involved in two-week-long- maneuvers In the Arctic. They ate the same slept in the same 10-man were generally of the same and physical con- and together spent a lot of their time and energy try- ing to keep body and equip- ment warm and working. One company of 112 men was chosen as the experimen- tal group. Two other com- panies were controls and were given nothing extra. Half of the exjperimeaUl group were given two doses of chewable ascorbic acid SCO milligrams with another 500 killigrams with each diy for two weeks. The other 56 men were given a non- acting placebo pill. As an added experimental control half of the occupants of each tent were Vitamin .the other half were on the placebo. Dr. Sabiston also reported studies of Mood levels of Vita- min C among soldiers during the maneuvers. Soldiers who did not get Vitamin C supple- ments experienced blood levels 20 to 25 percent below normal by the end of the two weeks.
