Mrs. Norris Wants
A Planetarium in
The Capital City
BY HARRIET FRENCH
“I have been reading and
learning about astronomy every
day since I was 5 years old—my
parents were my first teachers,”
declared Mrs. Ernest Eden Norris,
wife of the retired president of
Southern Railway.
Mrs. Norris is a life member of
National Astronomers, Inc., and
attends the Princeton Friends
astronomy meetings.
Her great desire is that Wash
ington shall have a planetarium.
Sitting before a cheery fire at
her home at 2204 Wyoming ave
nue the youthful-looking Mrs.
Norris spoke of her childhood
and of her sustained interest in
astronomy.
Her family, Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Callan and their 10 chil
dren, lived outside Knoxville,
Tenn., where for 40 years, her
father was member of the City
Council. For eight years he was
a city commissioner.
EDUCATION BEGINS EARLY
Mrs. Norris recalls driving back
and forth to town with her
parents in a phaeton “There
was a litUe front seat for the
overflow of children,” she ex
plains. “We often were driving
home in the early winter eve- ;
nings when the stars came out. i
It was then that mother and dad ,
identified for us the different
constellations. They believed
that education should begin at
an early age.”
Kathryn Callan was graduated
from East Tennessee Institute in
1901. “But I read astronomy
more than any other subject,”
j she confesses.
Astronomy is her "religion,”
collecting old English and Irish
silver is her hobby and song
: writing her avocation. And she
j sings! She has a haunting quality
I in her voice that is very appeal
ing. She has the personality to 1
be a professional singer or
actress.
This flair for dramatics has ;'
been an asset in writing songs j
i for servicemen. ;
VOLUNTEER WORK
Mrs. Norris has given 25,000 .
! volunteer hours to the armed
: services. “But that is very little,” i
says she, “in comparison with i
| Mary MacArthur. (Mrs. Arthur
MacArthur) who has given 100,- I
000 hours of voluntary service.”
Kathryn's volunteer work be- '
; gan at the age of 13, when the 11
! Spanish-American War was de- j <
I clared. Thousands of soldiers j i
: were encamped on the outskirts I
of Knoxville. She joined the
Girls’ Relief Corps under her i
| sisters. Since there were few j j
telephones, she acted as mes- 1
senger. She also made good use 1
s os her pony and cart, trotting r
| around the city collecting and
delivering essential materials.
World War I brought Mrs.
: Norris into Volunteer Canteen
Service of the Red Cross. After
completing courses in first aid,
home nursing and dietics, she
was .appointed commandant of
the Canteen Corps In Knoxville
with the rank of honorary colo
nel.
During World War 11, Mrs.
Norris was livirtg in Washington.
She was among the first to vol
unteer her services to Miss
Mabel Boardman of the Red
Cross. She became a hostess at
the Stage Door Canteen and in
the Servicemen's Lounge at the
Union Station.
Between the years of 1941 and
1946, '3,000 servicemen, from pri
vates to generals, crossed her
threshold for refreshment.
PRINCETON HOSPITALITY
Mrs. Norris has two sons, Prank
Callan and Eden, both graduates
of Princeton. Princeton TrW
angle boys have shared the Nor
ris hospitality, “off and on” for
30 years. “But,” says Mrs. Nor
ris, “since turning 3 score
and 10, I now eliminate big
buffet luncheons and suppers in
!my home. Instead, I entertain
! at the 1925 F Street Club.”
From time to time, Mrs. Norris
; gives talks on Astronomy to or
ganizations. She informs her
audience “The Astronomical
New year begins at the point
where the celestial equator, the
24-hour—or zero—and the eclip
tic (sun’s path) all meet. The mo
ment at which the sun is directly
over this triple meeting place is
the only instant during the year
when astronomical and terrestial
time coincide; this historic sec
ond occurs every year about
March 22 and is known as the
vernal equinox. The procession
of the equinoxes moves the vernal
equinox across each zodiacle
constellation every 2.166 years.
Twenty-six thousand years are
required for the zodiac to cover
its orbit. Now the sun enters
the zone of the Pisces about
March 15, passing in front until
April 15; Aries, April 15-May
15; Taurus, May 15-June 15;
Gemini, June 15-July 15; Can
cer, July-August 18; Leo. August
18-September, 18; Virgo, Septem
ber 18-October 18; Libra, October
18-November 21; Scorpio, No
vember 21-December 16: Sagit
tarius, December 16-January 18;
Capricorn, January 18-Febru
ary 15; Aquarius, February 15-
March 15.
“Horoscopic zodiacal charts
published today are 2.000 to 4.000
years out of date,” states Mrs.
Norris. “Three hundred years
hence the vernal equinox will
move into Aquarius.”
