Unusually Large Sun Spot Will
Remain Visible Until Sunday
The second largest sun spot ob-
served this year will disappear from
sight by Sunday because of the sun's
The spot, which has been causing
interruption of long distance short
wave radio transmission, was des-
cribed by Orren C. Mohler, assistant
professor of astronomy. It is about
140,000 miles long and 40,000 miles
wide, or about 10 per cent smaller
than a sun spot noted Feb. 1, which
was the largest spot ever measured.
This spot is large enough to be ob-
served by looking through smoked
glass or exposed photographic film,
or on a foggy day by looking at the
sun with the naked eye providing the
fog isn't too thick.
1946 may be a peak year for sun
spots, according to Mohler. A period
of maximum sun spot activity and
size is reached about every 11 years.
Mahler is assistant astronomer at
the University's McMath-Hulbert Ob-
servatory at Lake Anglus, near Pon-
tiac, considered one of the world's
leading observatories for solar study.
No one knows what causes sun
spots, according to Mohler, who des-
cribes a sun spot as being an area
on the sun's surface that is rela-
tively cooler than the rest of the sun
but still "very hot."

International Center: Due to re-

Vets' Job Prospects
Veterans who are 'resting' now, be-
fore they go into industrial or other
employment are deliberately ruining
their future prospects of employ-
ment, via the 'seniority' route, ac-
cording to Lawrence Hamberg, man-
ager of the U.S. Employment Service
office in Ann Arbor.
"Every major plant which is org-
anized by unions today, has a clause
in its contract which protects the
seniority of its employees, and while
many veterans are vacationing other
workers are procuring employment
and building up seniority which pro-
tects them against future layoffs,"
Hamberg said. "When the veteran is
hired later on, he will find himself
at the bottom of the seniority list
and at the same time his unemploy-
ment benefits built up through work-
ing will be smaller."
