Berkeley. Cel., Feb. .That the. ap
proach of Halley's comet may be at
tended with dire consequences to terres
tial life is the opinion of Professor Ed
win Booth, of the chemistry department
of the University of California. Fol
lowing the discovery of cyanogen bands
in the Spectrum of .the comet by sclen
tlsts , at the Yerkes obsrvatory, Booth
declared the danger from this gas alone
was 'not comparable with that offered
by the,- combination of cyanogen with
the hydrogen i of the earth's atmos
phere. This union, he stated, would pro
duce hydrocyanic acid, one of the most
deadly poisons known to science. .
"The rarity of the cyanogen that has
been marked in the tall 'of the comet
will determine , the consequences when
we are enveloped by it," Booth said. "Hy
drocyanic acid will be formed 1A greater
pr less quantities, but, unless the gas Is
of greater density than is apparent there
la little danger for us. . ; ; v
"If the substance resulting; In a com
bination of these gases Is dense enough,
tho people of the earth will experience
the same sensation with the comet s tail

are exterminated with the deadly stuff.
