NEW YORK, Jan. 18.-Dr. Heber
D. Curtis, director of the Alleghany
Observatory, Pittsburgh, sails from
here Sunday on the Laurentic to
observe the next total eclipse of
the sun which will occur on May J
of this year. This will make the
ninth total eclipse that Dr. Curt's
has observed and the third timz
that he has viewed one from Sum-
atra. Dr. Curtis received his A. B.
degree from the University of
Michigan in 1892.
Within a week after their ar-
rival in Sumatra, which is sched-
uled for Feb. 27, the party expects
to reach their destination, Taken-
geun, in Achina, up in the moun-
tains near the northern tip of
Sumatra. Takengeun is located on
a lake at an altitude of 3,600 feet,
and has a total population of
about 600, mostly Malays. The en-
tire land trip will be undertaken
by auto and auto truck.
The length of this eclipse, five
minutes and six seconds, will make
it the best opportunity until 1937
and so the atronomers will spend
nearly two months in advance of
the eclipse setting up and adjust -
ing the cameras,nspectographs, and
technical instruments which will
be used to study the sun's sur-.
roundings during the event.
Dr. Curtis, who was astronomer
at the Licks Observatory from 1909
to 1920, has been head of the Al-
leghanydObservatoryasince then.
jHe served as acting astronomer in.
charge of the D. C. Mills expedition
to the Southern Hemisphere from
1906 to 1909.
