The distribution of the stars in
space, methods by which their dis-
tances is determined, and their lo-
cation was discussed yesterday by
Prof. Allan D. Maxwell, of the as-
tronomy department, in a radio ad-
dress.
"Evidence has been found to
show that stars begin to thin out
in space after a certain distance
has been reached," he said. The
conclusion is drawn that the boun-
daries of the local system of stars
has been reached, when this thin-
ning out is observed.
"We are therefore located some-
where on the interior of a system
of a cluster of stars whose boundar-
ies we are thus able to explore," he
said. "There is much evidence,
however, that the multitude of
stars in the milky way lies for the
most part on the outside, not on
the inside of this system.
"Yet the local system of stars
is, as its name signifies, after all,
simply local in character," Profes-
sor Maxwell pointed out. "It is a
part of a much larger system of
stars, the Galactic system, whose
diamter is fully 10 times as great. _
The Gallactic system is the one
whose millions of members make
up that mysterious belt across the
sky which we know as the milky
way," he said.
