AUSSEY MAKES STATEMENT
REGARDING PORTA'S THEORY
After going over the vicinity of the
explosion of the meteor which fell in
Western Michigan last Wednesday,
Prof. William H. Hobbs of the geology
department has announced his conclus-
ion as to its landing place.
Search Made
By comparing observations reported
from different parts of Van Buren
county Professor Hobbs has located
the explosion of the body within a
space of a few miles. It passed. be-
tween Hartford and Lawrence, two
towns in Van Buren county, going
northward some miles in the air. It
prohably landed not far north of this
location. A country-wide search is
being conducted by the farmers of the
county, and he hopes to find some
fragments of the visitor before long.
Enlists Aid
Professor Hobbs visited the reported
locality of the landing of the meteor
last week-end and searched as far as
possible in the short time he had. is
Iting all the local newspapers of that
locality, he received reports which
gave him the data for his conclusion,
and promises of any information or
fragments, if found.
A report of the trip of Professor
Hobbs was printed in the Detroit Free
Press last week without information
from hic, and he has given out this
information to correct any misunder-
standing which may have arisen,.
Second Find
It was stated that he had located
a meteor which fell in Wisconsin a
few years ago by the same method he
used in this case, that of comparing
the reports of the seeing the flash and
hearing the sound caused by the ex-
plosion of the body when it struck the
earth, and that the Wisconsin meteor
was in the collection in the museum
here. The facts of the case are that
a plaster cast of the body is here, the
greater part of the fragments being at
the University of Wisconsin.
To Interest Farmers
"I am going back Friday to look
more closely over the ground and more
to the 'north of the place I visited be-
fore," said Professor Hobbs. "I will
try to interest the farmers of the dis-
trict in searching more carefully on
their property for pieces of the me-
teor."
He spoke also about the prophecy
of Professor Porta, who has created
a sensation by prophecying the end of
the world on December 17, saying that
the statement was absolutely false and
impossible.
' -Explains Phenomenon
Prof. William Joseph Hussey, direc-
tor of the observatory stated recently
that the situation described by Pro-
fessor Porta in the relations of the
planets has happened many times in
the course of human life, probably at
least once since the birth of Christ.
"It is a perfectly natural occur-
rence," said Professor Hussey, "and
should not be regarded with any fear
or credulence. The scare is of the type
the ;people, of the dark ages were
frightened-with every few weeks,but
has no place inan enlightened world
like that of today."

THE ARCTIC CIRCLE,

The Greatest Dog Fight
of the Screen
BIG EXTRA ADDED FEATURE

Railroad Jack has again changed his
field of endeavor. Finding the people
in the vicinity of Ann Arbor and De-
troit unimpressed by his vast know-
ledge of history, the human encyclo-
pedia recently moved to Dearborn and
made the acquaintance of Henry Ford.
As it is claimed that Mr. Ford knows
little of historical matter, Railroad
SJack immediately won. his favor, and
was given a lucrative position in the
Ford tractor plant.
But the close confinement of fac-
tory life did not well agree with Jack's
wandering spirit, and now he is the
proud possessor 'a brand new Ford
tractor and intends to make an over-
land trip to the'Pacific coast. The
Strial trip took place recently with Rail-
Sroad Jack sitting proudly at the wheel,
-guiding his new machine' as it rumbled
and bumped over the road to Wayne.
Along the road to the golden west
the memory expert expects to stop off
in the principal cities and take orders
for Mr. Ford. The' citizens- along his
route will also have an opportunity of
hearing some of his 10,000 historical
dates and names.
