"Since an important part of the

make it seem reasonable to predict
that he will call a high calibre of men

Mr. Perkins assert;ed that the Gov-

having the coopeation of nearly
15,000 state employees who have not
been selected because of their po-

of their ability to do their job
Mr. Perkins expressed the hope
that Governor Van Wagoner will fo-

Governor completes his term.

Cunningham's Comet, predicted by

during the last days of 1940, be-

et to appear. since Halley's Comet in-
vaded this part of the solar system
in 1910, it failed to live up to expec-
tations and attained a brilliance only
slightly above the naked-eye level.
Professor Maxwell explained that
two estimates of its probable bright-
ness had, been made, using laws,
known as the "inverse six power

Included on the roster of speakers
are Dr. J. M. M. Gray, former pres-
ident of the American University of

"A number of the objectives stated
