Girls Won’t Need
Although the University has
been using less fuel this year, no
serious shortage of “hog fuel”
(sawdust) is expected, since the
worst of the winter cold is over,
predicts Mr. D. L. Lewis, superin
tendent of the physical plant.
In the main, Mr. Lewis said,
campus buildings are heated by
burning sawdust, although some
crude oil is burned. Only one car
of oil has been used by the plant,
while last year, the plant saw
three cars used.
“We used less oil not because of
the shortage, but because this
winter has not been so hard,” be

ing the eclipse, Mr. Pruett ex
plained, “The very best way to see
it is, if they had field glasses, to

Pruett pointed out that smoked

else the sun will set too soon,’’
Mr. Pruett warned.
Mr. Pruett has taken many pho
tographs of eclipses, and plans to
take one of this eclipse, "if it’s
clear.” The best way to photo
graph eclipses, he says, is to use
slow film and set the camera at
the smallest stop and shortest ex
posure possible. The camera
should be pointing in the general
direction of the sun and not be
disturbed during exposure.
“My best bet is we won’t see it.

stated. “Chances are 99 to 1 it
won’t be clear.”
Solar eclipses can occur only
during a new moon. New moons
happen about once a month, but
since most times the moon passes
to one side of the sun, an eclipse
takes place but seldom. An eclipse
of the sun takes place when the
moon comes between the earth
and the sun, thus shutting off the
rays of the sun from the earth.
