(Christian Science Monitor) Late news from the astronomical world raises this serious question: Is there collusion between the Adminis tration at Washington and the devout astronomer for the purpose of making the world familiar with large num bers? Or is it rivalry in the expan sion of the Arabic notation? What ever the answer be the latest rrom that redoubtable searcher of the be yond, Dr. Edwin P. Hubble of the Mt. Wilson Observatory, invites us to en large our concept of the universe far beyond anything heretofore presented iby Jeans, Eddington Millikan and the others fervid expansionists though they be. Dr. Hubble’s findings are little short of breath-taking. The universe, de clares he, is a finite sphere with a diameter of some stx billion light years, and when this distance is cal culated on the fact that light travels at a speed of 186,000 miles a second, the Arabic notation itself is put to the test. But that is only the begin ning of his astounding declaration. The universe consists of 500,000,000,- 000,000 (five hundred trillion) nebulae, each stellar unit of which is 80,000,000 times as bright as the sun and 800,- 000,000 times as massive. How these figures stagger the imagination. And only a year ago, Dr. Hubble was content with observing, through the 100-inch telescope on Mt. Wilson, ne bulae 150,000,000 light years away. Who shall say this has not ibeen a year of unprecedented expansion? We are also assured that beyond this universe, 6,000,000,000 light years in diameter, nothing exists, not even cosmio dust. T hat is to say, this uni verse with which Dr. Hubble so familiarly marks the end of space, for it is held that space cannot exist without matter. Here is another important fact. The totality of this mass of matter in the universe has not increased. Because of the constant expansion, it follows, then, that the distance between the component units has greatly increased, that is, to say, it is continually an emptier universe. In the question of mass, Dr. übble likens the earth to a grain of sand in this immense space. If all these marvelous details of this expanding universe has been re vealed through a 100-inch telescope, what further wonders will be discov ered when the huge mirror now cool ing at Corning, N. Y., is ready tor use? Dr. Hubble believes that beyond the present frontier will be found countless galaxies or nebulae, all mov ing at a terrific speed—where? The Psalmist was, according to modern astronomy, speaking in very limited terms when he attempted to Indicate the infinite nature of the divine pres ence. As we ponder the problems raised by discussion of the expanding uni verse, especially the accepted theory of relativity that space and matter must coexist, this question inevitably confronts us: If the conclusion of modern physicists and metaphysicians thatm atter in reality is nonexistent be true, does it not follow that space must give way to infinity? OTHERS VIEWS FAVORS SALES TAX FOR CHILDREN’S SAKE To the Editor: In an editorial regarding the sales tax, a leading State paper says "Lei’s leave the schools out of it and keep the records clear.” Astounding. There would have been no sales tax if the State had never taken over the schools. Never, in my long life, have I known the editors of North Carolina to fail 80 completely in real leadership as they are doing in this matter of the sales tax. Suppose they had long ago said: “Fellow Tar Heels, we are up against it. The State is well-nigh •bankrupt. Our debt is tremendous and we can carry it only at an increasing rate of interest. Many of our towns and counties have defaulted. Many of our schools will be closed. The only way out is a sales tax dui'ing this emergency Let us pay it like men and not like whimperers.” Had such leadership been exerted, 1 believe the people would have been more law-abiding and the merchants more careful in collecting the tax. I suggest that Paul Leonard, Wil lard Dowell, Santford Martin and others so critical of the sales tax, be elected to the next legislature. Let them come down out of the grand stand, where it is easy to criticize, and straighten the matter out for us. Let veteran statesmen have a rest from the ingratitude of the people while the younger men take a rabbit out of the hat. Remember the countless farmers who have lost their homes—a thing the sales tax seexs to avoid. I should think of myself with con tempt if I were unwilling to pay these pennies to my State for the education of its children. MRS. F. L. TOWNSEND. Lenoir, May 4, 1934. My -o O xV by Ja mes As well New York, May B—Spotshots: Four teenth street, which slices across the island from the gas works and power plants of the East river edge along Avenue D to the market stalls of the Hudson, remains one of the three or four truly colorful thoroughfares in town. Often called “The Park Avenue of the Poor,” it is also their Broadway and Coney Island combined. Here the second-run double-feature movies thrive; here the sidewalk hawkers sell all manner of engaging and use less gadgets until, when success comes they move to ornate stores uptown and continue to sell all manner of en gaging and useless gadgets. The street is about as cosmopolitan —and as provincial—as any in the world. Beinning, on the East Side in al old German neighborhood, it be comes Yiddish, grows Russian and then German again. In the middle of the Islahd, near Fifth avenue, it takes on a faintly fashionable air, grooving into an Irish millieu, blend ing into the outskirts of the Italian sector —and bbringing up at the piers of the French line. On Fourteenth street occurred the birth of the moving picture. The old Biograph studios were born there. Gyp the Blood swaggered among gangst ers and the homes of the rich ranged the curb—the Goelets, the Belmonts, the Roosevelts, Tammany Hall had its headquarters there when Tammany Hall was the bayest, most magical name in town. Also the revolutionists, who have taken over Union Square—to be only occasionally disputed by the sellers of patent medicines and hair tonic— rave and roar. I was thinking the other day that, you can walk Four teenth street from one end to the oth er and get a pretty good cross-section of the town; but even at that it will only be one sideshow in the circus. CARNIVAL DAYS Kent Watson, of the Newspaper men’s club, writes to remind me that the Greater New York Fair will short ly get under way. He asks me to tell readers who live out of town that the best place to see the finest hogs, cat tle, chickens, horses, fish, game, bron cos and bbronco-busters, buffaloes and hothouse flowers, will be New York around the first of June. He asures me that many residents of the western plains, including a small tribe of Indians, are making plans to come to New York this sum mer, to see a buffalo for the first, time. But it is just possible that Mr. Watson, a waggish fellow, is kid ding me. TO E) A ¥ TODAY’S ANNIVERSARIES 1821 -William H.

TODAY’S HOROSCOPE Here we have a broad, powerful mind with original conceptions. You should have much influence among people, but should aim to avoid strain iiig after unprofitable things, a mis direction of effort, which will prob ably result in detracting from that popularity. Seek to conserve the ener gies in proper directions, in order not to waste a portion of the life. JSR J. H. Brodie Defending Champion, Three Flights of 16 Each Be Had The annual championship tourna ment of the West End country club will be held Monday, May 21, at 2 p. m. on the club’s links in three flights of 16 each, it was stated today. The qualifying rounds will be had Satur day and Sunday preceding the tourna ment. J. H. Brodie is defending champion of the club, defeating O. T. Kirkland in a thrilling match at the club last year. Kirkland won over E. F. Par ham in an upset match to come into the finals. Parham had shot bril liant golf up to his match with Kirk land. Each member to qualify for the tournament must turn in his score for 18 holes. Suitable prizes for each flight will be awarded bby the tournament com cittee, it was said, and plenty of in terest is expected to be stirred up among the golfers at the club. HIGH GOLFERS LOSE TO STATE FROSH Raleigh, May B—State8 —State College fresh man golfers scored a 13 1-2 victory over Henderson high links teams in a match played at the Carolina Coun try Club. J.

Once Mighty King of Utili ties Can’t Raise Security (Continued rrom Page One.) spent a vast sum chasing this elderly gentleman around the hemisphere and wanted assurance he would be on hand for trial. “This means he will be compelled to go to jail”, protested Floyd E. Thompson, former chief justice of the Illinois Supreme Court, defender or Insull. Judge Barnes listened briefly to the argument of Green and the defender. “The only question before the court” the jurist said, “isi the amount of bail which would reasonably assure the presence of this defendant at his trial. “The question as to how much money or property a man has has nothing to do with the amount of bail. Under the circumstances, I am of the opinion that the suggestion of the gov ernment is not excessive.” InsulU, to whom thousands were paltry, sagged in his chair. Thompson pleaded again, hut the court had de cided. “That is my best judgment,-* Judge Barnes concluded, and rising, withdrew into his chamber. Young Insull, once the partner ol his father in directing the three bil lion dollar utilities empire that stretch ed from Maine to Texas, no at tempt would be made to raise the full amount of the bond required. Prep arations had been made to supply SIOO,OOO for his release but the Insulls and their counsel had not counted on so great a sum. “I am resigned to jail,” the elder Insull was quoted by his son. The bond assessed against the stricken utilities monarch, once one of America’s wealthiest men, was four times that of his younger brother, Martin and four times that of the Al Capone, Chicago gangster. Samuel Insull’s 13,000-miles of hur ried flight from justice were brought to an end today as he heard a govern ment prosecutor demand his deten tion under $200,000 bond on criminal charges. The iron will that for decades had dominated a great realm of American finance nad utilities was steadfast through the ordeal of tramping through a gaping multitude at the Union, Station, climbing the long stairs to the street and speeding away to be arraigned in the Federal court house. There, the warrants charging frau- t dulent use of the mails and violations j of the bankruptcty act were read to . him.
