Lansing, Dec. 20,--(P)-All indica-
tions today pointed to an echo of the
Hotel Kerns fire in the approaching
regular session of the legislature.
The signs pointed in that direction
as a coroner's jury investigating the
disaster was in adjou nment until
9:30 a. m. next Thur day. There
was wide speculation er the posi-
ble scope of the jury' report, with
members expecting to conclude their
examination of witneses within two
days after their next session.
Questions leveled at witnesses from
the jury of six men this week have in-
dicated a move will be initiated to
tighten fire prevention laws relating
to hotels and other public places.
Judging from the questions, the re-a
port is expected to point out the fol-
lowing conclusions from testimony:

Spectrum Of New
Star Photographed
By U. Observatory
Observers at the University Ob-i
servatory took nine photographs of1
the spectrum of a newly discovered
star on Dec. 17.
The new star, Nova Herculis, was!
first discovered in England on Dec.
15, but cloudy skies for a time pre-
vented the observers here from get-
ting a good view. The nova is of
about the third magnitude, so that
it is a conspicuous, but not brilliant,
naked-eye star. It is located mid-
way between Vega and the "Dragon's
Head," and is about 30 degrees above
the western horizon just after dark.
There have been several other
novae discovered in the northern
hemisphere, but Nova Herculis is
the brightest since 1920. Observa-
tions of the spectrum show that the
shell of gases around the nova is
moving outward at the rate of about
150 miles a second.
hand at all times in hotels.
3-There is no widespread practice
among hotels which require that em-
ployes be drilled in their conduct
during such an emergency.
The jury may not make specific
statutory recommendations but1
members expect at least to compile3
a report which will be of use in in-]
itiating such a move.I
