BLAKESLEE NEW YORK Oct 20 diction of a new giant planet lying far outside the present limits of the solar system was received today from Professor William H Picker internationally known astron Dmer at the Mandevllle Jamaica private observatory He is one of the two astronomers who predicted the existence and pos ition of Pluto the new planet X discovered two years ago He calls the new unknown planet ij Third Most Massive This planet ho estimates as the third most massive of the suns fam ily surpassed only by mighty Jupiter which is about twice its size and Ringed Saturn His computations show its diameter at 44000 miles more than five times that oE the arth Its distance from the sun appears to range from 5000 million miles to 0000 million or 55 to 95 times the earths distance Its elliptical orbit accounts for the variations in distance Planet P takes a computed 656 years to make one circuit around the sun It is so big Professor Pick ering says that when telescopes lo cate the planet it will show a clear ly defined disc Pluto about the earths size and but half aa far fromthe the calculated posi of planet Pshower only as a point of light even in the world largest telescope Urnmis Perturbed The evidence of this massive un known world is the present pe culiar action of the planet Uranus one of the outer members of th solar system Uranus in nstronomi cal language la perturbed This means that Uranus is displaced from its proper orbit Tho displacemenl is due in Professor Pickerings cal culations to the giant planet and shows its size and position The planet Neptune which cir cles the sun farther out than Uran us Is too far away from planet 1 at present to be displaced by it But Dr Pickering says Neptune too will re in position to be perturbed in the year 2010 Moisture and
