ALTON BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Writer AUSTIN Tex AP Excit ing news has just reached our planet earth It may b tidings of the birth of a mysterious object out to ward the edge of the universe For perhaps five billion years the news has been racing through space at the speed of 186000 miles per second The courier was light waves produced by an apparent gigan tic explosion long ago The news was picked up only three weeks ago in a picture taken with the giant 200inch telescope on Mt Palomar in California The picture showed that something had happened sud denly since a last look in that particular direction of the uni verse in 1962 The distant light streaming toward earth may be disclosing the story of the birth of one of the most puzzling of all heavenly bodies says Dr Allan R Sandage of the Mt Paloinar and Mt Wilson ob servatories The objects are known as qua sistellar forces abbreviated to QSF They are an entirely new source and kind of energy in the universe They simply do not follow the rules or laws of physical forces that astronomers and other scientists have so far figured out They know why our sun keeps burning They know that our sun is one of about 200 billion stars in a great family or gai Milky Way They know there are billions of other huge galaxies But none can yet explain why the QSFs emit such prodigious energy why they are trillions of times brighter than our own sun why they broadcast so much radio energy how or why they came about Only about 34 quasistellar sources have been identified so far just within the last few years Most of these were de tected within the last year lifetime and who did not want his gifts to stop with his death The Lions Club is just one of the many civic and social groups commerce post Jan 15 has to repeat their
