The Nome Nugget (Newspaper) - May 20, 1963, Nome, AlaskaGOPs Plan to Hold National Convention During Mid July DENVER (jP — Republicans probably will hold their 1964 na- tional convention in mid-July.

As a special site selection com- mittee met Friday and recom- mended that the convention open Monday, July 13. National Chair- man Wm. Miller said the week of July 20 is the committee’s second choice. The selection committee will meet again June 20 in Denver to recommend the convention city.

Miller, a New York congressman, said none of the cities has been eliminated. Miller said committee members will visit the cities to check avail- ability of hotel rooms and conven- tion facilities. No Change in Radioactivity MELBOURNE, Australia OP) — Samples taken from the upper at- mosphere by balloons show no marked change in the radioactivity over Australia, an official of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission said Saturday.

Marlow said there had been some indications of increased radio- activity following nuclear tests in the northern hemisphere but this increase was not great in the southern hemisphere.

Slop Smiling BEDFORD, Pa. (A*> — Every time you smile you’re wearing out your face, according to a New York doctor. “It takes 13 muscles to produce a cheesecake smile,” Dr. John J. Conley said Friday. “Your skin wears out like shoes.” He was addressing some 300 members of the Pennsylvania Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology. Wasn’t it Bernard Shaw who warned, “Do not do unto others as you would have them do unto vou—their tastes may be differ- ent?” Moonlight Water the Year ’Round Direct From the Springs Naturally Softened and Pure No Tank Too Small — No Bucket Too Large Dial 2475 - 9 to 5 o’clock Dial 2280 -- After 5 & Weekends lOONSHM ATER “ Best Water In Alaska ” Commercial Value Seen For Seal Lion Pup Skins The Pacific Seal Co. Ltd., P.O. Box 7, New Westminster, B.C., recently advised the Dept, of Fish and Game that the skins of new- born sea lion pups appear to have a market value of $6.00 or perhaps more. This communication result- ed from the experimental process- ing of a sea lion pup skin which was furnished by the Dept, of Fish and Game for processing. The skin was processed in Europe by methods normally employed for hair seal skins. The present population of sea lions in Alaska numbers between 150,000 and 200,000 animals ac- cording to Walter Kirkness, Com- missioner of the Dept, of Fish and Game. This recent evidence of commercial value suggests that Alaska’s sea lion resource may be developed into a new, though limited, industry. Commissioner Kirkness pointed out that sea lions give birth 1o their pups during the month of June and that the skins of pups would have to be harvested dur- ing that time. Persons desiring information on methods of hand- ling and shipping skins may con- tact directly the Pacific Sea. Co., P.O. Box 7, New Westminster, B.C., for information.

The announcement Friday from the official New China news agency was the first report made public by the Chinese Ministry of Com- munications.

Leave It to Bob PALM SPRINGS, Calif, UD — It was one of those frequent inquiries that news agencies get about re- ports that a celebrity is dead. This one came from Mobile, Ala., where several citizens though they heard on radio that Bob Hope had com- mitted suicide. His comment: “I contemplated it after my golf game yesterday.

Alexander utomotive DIAL 2532 Heuston 8c Betty Alexander jSun's Eclipse Is Big Attraction for Tourists Alaskans, who see 1963 as an especially big year for Alaska travel because of the spanking-new ferry vessels of the “Marine High- way’’ system, now see a boost to the season for another reason. This attraction — the sun’s July 20th eclipse — if of short duration, but several hundred additional visitors are expected because of it. With a totality lasting 92V£ seconds, the eclipse will be of longer duration at the town of Talkectna, Alaska, than at any other place in the United States. Located about 75 air miles from Anchorage, Talkeetna is almost exactly on the central line of the eclipes. There, the eclipse will occur at 10:02 a.m., AST. Of the several inns and hotels in Talkettna, at least one is al- ready fully booked — including a party from Norway. But in- quiries about the eclipse have come in such numbers that the Alaska Railroad plans a special train for Anchorage-based visitors to Tal- keetna on July 20. It will, of course, deliver passengers to Tal- keetna well in advance of the solar “blackout.” Specific information on travel to Alaska my be obtained by writing to the Alaska Travel Di- vision, Box 2391, Juneau.
