Scientists End Search of Many
Years for Suspected
New World.
By Associated Press)


FLAGSTAFF, Arizona, March 13.
-In that little cluster of orbs which
scampers across the siderial abyss
under the name of the Polar sys-
tem there are, let it be known, nine
instead of eignt worlds.
The presence of a ninth marcher
in the retinue of the sun, long sus-
pected, was definitely announced
here today by Dr. V. M. Slipher. of
the Lowell Observawory, who head-
ed 'a group of eminent astronomers
whose gropings in the Milky Way
with telescopes and cameras locat-
ed the new sphere.
Way out beyond Neptupe, tag-
ging bashfully behind his brothers,
the new planet's size and age are
still unknown. Its -presence wvas
mathematically predicted years ago
by the late Dr. Percival Lowell, a
noted scientist, who founded the
observatory here, partly for the
very purpose of identifying it.
Other astronomers, notably Dr. W.
W. Campbell, director of Lick Ob-
servatory, verified Lowell's calcula-
Today the faith in those calcu-
lations was rewarded b an an-
nouncement by Dr. Slipher that the
ncw planet had been "sighted" last
January 21st by an extremely deli-
cate photographic lens developed
for the search. Announcement was
withheld, Dr. Slipher said, "until we
were absolutely sure."
The discovery revealed that the
planet is 45 times as far from the
earth as the earth is from the sun.
Although its size has not been de-
finitely determined, it is believed
that it may be bigger than Jupiter,
largest member of the solar family,
which is 1200 times as large as the'
earth. And, said the announce-
ment, it is at least no smaller than
the earth.
Astronomically, the discovery is
regarded as the greatest since the
location of Neptune, eighth mem-
ber of the solar system, in 1846. The
astronomers who participated with
Dr. Slipher in the discovery 'are: C.
0. Lampland, E. C. Slipher, J. C.
Duncan, K. P. Williams, E. A. Ed-
wards and T. B. Gill.
West Virginia university's travel-

Michigan will be represented in
the debate by the varsity affirma-
