THIBTY-FIBST YEAS ARE ELATED OVER GIFT Thought that Many Important Scientific Discoveries Will be Made (By Associated Press.) Pasadena, Cal., Jan. 21— The an nouncement of Andrew Carnegie's ad ditional gift of $10,KM),000.to the Car negie institute and the eneconiums he pronounced upon the work of Mount Wilson's solar observatory, caused much elation today among scientists whose discoveries the noted ironmaster said he counted upon to arrest the attention of the world. Dr. George Elle.ry Hale, director of the observatory, is not now on the peak, having gone abroad some months ago for his health and being now in Rome. But Professor Walter S, Ad ams, assistant director, gave out to night a statement covering the remark able discoveries announced by Hale during the past year, and giving out a line of what Carnegie may expect in the way of verification of his confident prediction (that startling astronomical discoveries are at hand. These discov eries, scientists believe, will come in rapid sequence as soon as the 100 inch lens for the new 230 foot telescope is brought here from France and in stalled. Among the prospective discoveries or demonstrations, the one probably of greatest interest to laymen is the effect of sun spots upon the atmosphere en veloping this planet. The deductions of Hale and his assistants may revolu tionize the present theories of meterol ogy and make weather predictions an exact science. Adams declared that Hale had made the most wonderful discovery of the age a short time before Carnegie's visit to the observatory a year ago. "Prof. Hale definitely that sun spots are great electrical vortices moving across the sun like terresterial cy clones," said Adams. "We are now working on probable effect of these sun spots on the earth and starts. We have already discovered that these spots do effect both the earth and stars magnetically and have something to do with magnetic storms on earth."

Y., Jan. 21— Taft tonight began in earnest his campaign for the fortification of the Panama canal. His entire speech at the an nual banquet of the Pennsylvania so* ciety in New York was devoted to his subject. He has high hopes that congress at this session will declare in his favor and appropriate $5,000, 000 to begin the work. In the sen ate the president has been told the sentiment for fortification is almost two to one. The house seems- evenly divided, but not on partisan lines. Most of the members appear, how ever, to be willing to be convinced by the side that makes the better presentation of its case. Taft will bring all of his influence to bear in favor of fortification. In his speech tonight he said that there were ab solutely no treaty obligations in the way of fortifying the canal that the United States had every right and reason to protect what was purely an American waterway. The presi dent said he yielded to no man in his love of peace and hatred of war. He said he hoped to submit soon to the senate arbitration treaties of a broader nature than had ever come before that body or any other legis lative body of the world. At the same time Taft cautioned his hearers that universal peace was still a long way off and he could not conceive of any patriotic American being willing to allow an attacking force free and equal use of a waterway which was built by Americans largely as an in strument for the defense of their country.

D., Jan. 21—A farmers* meeting was held at Young town, seven mil*.* north of New Sal em, last Thursday. One of the specific results of the meeting was the declared intention of eight farmers to erect silos the coming summer.
