Some Come To Sightsee, Others To Work

Not To Be Outshown,
Moon Plans July Eclipse

Following close on the heels of
the sun's eclipse, a partial eclipse
of the moon heads the list of astro-
nomical attractions for July, ac-
cording to Prof. Hazel M. Losh of
the astronomy department.
Professor Losh points out that
on the evening of July 15, two
fifths of the moon's diameter will
be immersed in the earth's shadow.
Two Types
She adds that there are two
types of eclipses-solar, as the one
on June 30, and lunar. "An eclipse
of the sun occurs only at new
moon phase," she says, "when the
moon passes directly between the
earth and sun, putting the three
objects on practically the same
Two weeks later, she continues,
at full moon phase the moon may
still be close enough to the plane
of the earth's orbit so it will pass
through the earth's shadow.
Lunar Eclipse
The lunar eclipse will begin at
6:09 p.m., July 15, before the moon
arises oves over the horizon. It
will end at 8:31 p.m., so the last-
half hour may be seen, according
to Professor Losh.
Among July's constellations will
be Sagittarius, the Archer, she
points out. It is usually depicted
as an archer slaying Orion (The

Hunter) or Taurus (The Bull), on
the- opposite side of the sky, or
perhaps the archer mayhbe shown
with bow drawn, aiming at the
heart of Scorpius, just to his right.
Another easily identifiable con-
stellation, the professor says, is
Scorpius. "A long curving line of
stars," she explains, "it resembles
a bright giant fish-hook, moving
across the sky toward the southern
horizon." Its heart is marked by
Antares, a great red star named
by the Greeks as "rival of Mars."
The Milky Way will rise into
view on summer evenings, she
adds, with Sagittarius, included in
the great semicircle of stars, clus-
ters and nebulae. The eastern part
of Sagittarius is like a dipper
turned upside down, Professor Losh
explains, giving it the name "The
Little Milk Dipper."
Among the July stars will be
Venus, extremely bright for about
two hours after sunset. It will move
eastward, passing only one degree
north of Regulus, lower star of the
sickle of Leo, on July 12.
"Saturn, distinctly yellow in ap-
pearance, and Spica, a bright blue
star, will remain the bright pair
in the south during evening hours,"
the astronomer states.

Jackson for Freedom Festival

(continued from Page 1)
Authentic wagons, carriages, and
automobiles of various periods plus
50 head of livestock will be dis-
played on the specially construct-
ed stage.
Four Freedoms
The pagent deals primarily with
the four freedoms: Freedom of
Worship, Freedom of Speech,
Freedom from Want, and Freedom
from Fear. Starting with the land-
ing of the forefathers the pagent
includes sagas of the underground
railway, the founding of the Re-
publican party, the Civil War, the
horseless carriage, and will end
with a prediction of the future.
The streets are flag-draped and
store windows filled with relics of
the past. In one corner window,
campaign-buttons from the past
quarter-century are displayed.
Other stores are showing butter-
churns and other symbols of an
earlier way of life.
Best Whiskers
State Rep. Wilfred G. Bassett,
Jackson Republican, had one of
the best crops of whiskers on ex-
hibition. His wife wore a sun-
bonnet and the kind of dress that
was high fashion when the Re-
publicans started here in 1854.

According to Jackson Republi-
can authorities, the founding of
their party was precipitated by a
violent national reaction to the
1854 Kansas-Nebraska Bill. Many
felt that the Compromise of 1820
had been violated and the result-
ing unrest spawned a number of
new parties, among them the Free-
Soilers, Know-Nothings, Prohibi-
tionists, etc.
A rash of political meetings
broke out through the north,
which set the stage for the crea-
tion of the Republican Party.
A call for organization was
sounded to the citizens of Michi-
gan. Four, thousand answered and
came to Jackson frpm Michigan,
Northern Ohio, and Indiana.
Twenty rode 100 miles on horse-
back from the Saginaw Valley.
There under a clump of Oak
trees on a hot July day in 1954
the first Republican convention
was held. The assembly nominated
the first Republican candidate for
governor-Kingsly - Bingham. He
was later elected.
In two years the party born
"Under the Oaks" had grown
enough to hold a national con-
vention and oo put in a bid for
the presidency. Four years later
the party elected the first Repub-
lican president-Abraham Lincoln.
