McLaughlin's Mars Theory
Makes Astronomy Top Ten
Speaking about his theory concerning markings on the planet
Mars, which has been named one of the top ten astronomical contri-
butions of the year, Prof. Dean B. McLaughlin of the astronomy de-
partment said, "I never expected anything to come of it."
The professor, who obtained both his A.B. and PhD degrees fromI
the University, began his initial observations in 1939. "It was," he+

Plans To Buy
Salk Vaccine
Francis Gathers
Results of Tests
By The Associated Press
The National Foundation for In-
fantile Paralysis said yesterday in
New York City that it is contract-
ing to buy enough Salk polio vac-
cine to treat nine million persons
next year, although it is still un-
known whether the vaccine works.
Results of the tests to determine
whether the vaccine prevents po-
lio are being gathered by Dr.
Thomas Francis Jr. at the Univer-
sity. His report is expected to be
completed next April.
Calculated Risk
By making the contract, said
Foundation President Basil O'Con-
nor, supplies will be available so
it will be possible to start giving
the vaccine immediately after re-
sults of tests of its effectiveness
are in next spring.
"The national foundation is tak-
ing a calculated financial risk in
purchasing vaccine before it has
been found to be effective," he
But he added "we have every
reason to hope and believe" that
it will be. And if this proves to
be the case, he said, the vaccine
ordered now can be put to prompt
use next year-instead of having
to wait 70 days to get it produced.
Begin Production
On the basis of the advance or-
der, he said, pharmaceutical hous-
es can begin production at once.
The vaccine will cost $9 million'
dollars, or $1 for each three-shot
series for the projected nine mil-
lion recipients.
Shots will be made available,
O'Connor said, to groups deemed
the "most highly susceptible" to
polio, and totalling10,490,000 chil-
dren and adults. He said only 75,
per cent of them-or nine million-
could be expected to ask for the

The final toll was expected to be

Casualty Toll
CulyNow 57 Dead
Hurricane Hazel's Canadian Trip
Causes 100 Million Dollar Damage'
TORONTO (MP)-Rescue workers yesterday lifted more bodies
from the silt and debris of Ontario's disastrous hurricane, bringing
the casualties to 57 known dead and 39 missing.
Hurricane Hazel, which churned up out of the Caribbean last
week and cut across the North American continent from the Caro-
linas to Hudson Bay, took a known death toll of 155 in Canada and

claimed, "a sideline begun out ofn
pure personal curiosity."
Caused by Currents
By 1941 McLaunghlin was con-'
vinced that the systematic sur-
face markings on Mars "were
caused by great air currents simi-
lar to the trade winds on earth."
In the midst of working on the
problem of the direction taken by
the winds, the war began and Mc-
Laughlin was forced to discontinue
his research. It wasn't until early
in 1954 that "Mars was taken off
the shelf again."

compares the mysterious markings
to the dust bowls of the Southwest.
The winds pick up great amounts
of material from sources located
near the planet's equator.
Active Volcanoes
McLaughlin who is a geologist
and meteorologist as well as an
astronomer says that the sources
must be active volcanoes since
they supply such a tremendous
quantity of ash and dust.
Since there are neither oceans
nor lang mountain ranges on the
planet the dust is then deposited
in drifts over Mars' surface. "It is
nearly the same principle as plac-
ing an electric fan behind a large
pile of sand," the professor ex-
plained. "The sand will continue
to shift and spread out as long as
the force of the wind is behind it."
Disposes Old Idea
Prof. McLaughlin's theory fur-
ther disposes of the old idea that
there are man made canals and
other signs of human habitation on
our neighboring planet.
Commenting on the cooperation
of astronomers around the world,
and on their contributions in gen-
eral the professor stated, "The
same sun, moon and stars shine on
Russia and the rest of the world
that shine here. There is no rea-
son why we shouldn't be working
on similar problems."'
