The cause of the blaze was unknown. Dakin Vice Presiden'. Tom Harrison estimated damages at a quarter of a million dollars. Firemen from five fire de partments were called to the scene shortly after noon. The building was a two s'ory block and brick structure con taining 45,000 square feet of space. It was used in the manufaCiure of upholstered chairs. RADIATION EXPERIMENTS NOW POSSIBLE iN SCHOOL J^Vj^Ty t'-fVL Ifl ft It was two high school i students who first discovered 1 the possibility of creating "skin I banks" for burn victim*—and * now their work has led to a fuU-scale investigation by top I scientists. The breakthrough happened because the students—like their 1 professional counterparts who 1 are studying radiation—had i been fortunate enough to i conduct practical experiments ; and not just read about radia- 1 tion in science class. Focal point of such ex periments is the Gammator 50, a machine which demonstrates the effects of gamma rays (a type of electromagnetic radia tion of great penetrating power) on cells, seeds, fruit flies, laboratory animals or ganic materials, plastics and other substances. With total safety, students using the machine have begun to under stand the importance of the peaceful uses of radiation. Gamma irradiation influ ences to some degree almost every living thing and most materials. Each object reacts differently to varying doses. Too much radiation (in the caae of living tissues and organ-1 isms) has a lethal effect. Just the right amount can stimulate the growth of seeds, inhibit ■eed growth so they wiH store longer, pasturize foods, pre mlt meats definitely, produce genetic change and accomplish many other important tasks The Gammator has been Durham Chamber of Commerce To Conduct Business Clinic Thirty per cent of the average business letter consists of needless words. One of eve ry twenty letters is written to correct an error or omission in previous correspondence. Three letters out of four con tain trite, "horse-and-buggv" phrases that waste the reader's time and kill his interest. These are a few of the findings of W. H. Butterfield, one of the nation's leading authorities on letter writing, who will conduct a Business Letter Clinic in Durham on Thursday, March 20. Sponsor ed by the Durham Chamber of Commerce, the clinic will be held from 7:00 to 10:30 p.m. at the Downtowner "Motor Inn. Author of sixteen books and many magazine articles on business correspondence, But terfif.'d has conducted letter writing programs for business and professional groups in more than 300 cities. In many installed in a number of high schools. It is useful in studying the life sciences, as well as chemistry, physics, art and even home economics, accord ing to Milton Packin, president of the Radiation Machinery Corporation of Parsippany, New Jersey, makers of the machine. The firm provides information, free for the asking, to teachers about ex periments which can be con ducted with it. The Gammator 60 has re ceived license approval by the Atomic Energy Commission for unrestricted laboratory areas in high schools... the only unit to be approved for high schools in the world. Lead shielding covers the radioactive source and tests are conducted in a «™ll chamber rotated to the rear of the unit. Moreover, nothing irradiated with gamma rays becomes radioactive itself. Nucleus for future stomic age experiments _by students, the Gammator - 60 weighs almost a ton and stands about five feet high. Cost—which has been often raised by civic groups as well as the schools themselves—is $3,876. "Considerable work has been done in the past on the damag ' ing effects of radiation, but too ; little hM been done about the > beneficial effects," relates Mr. ■ Packin. "The Gammator 60 '■ makes it easy for high school 1 students to study the applica tions of the peaceful uses of 1 radiation." communities his clinics have been held four and five times. "How you say it is just as important as what you say in your business letters," says Butterfield. "Sometimes the reader is influenced even more by the tone of a letter than by its contents. A friendly, human tone wins his co-opera tion and good will. A blunt tone irritates him. A mechani cal tone bores him." A list of trite expressions to avoid in letter writing is included among the fifteen letter-improvement charts used / duripg the clinic. Other mater ials cover negative words and how to avoid them, short cuts to concise writing, effective selling psychology, how to write clearly, how to give let ters a friendly tone, correct form and layout, how to de cline a request and Mill hold a reader's good will, and a "check list" for successful let ters. The SIO.OO registration for the Business Letter Clinic includes the set of 15 letter improvement charts. Formerly Chairman of the Department of Business Com munication at the University of Oklahoma, Butterfield later served as Educational Director of the International Consumer Credit Association, St. Louis, and Editor of its Better Letter Service.

Morehead Planetarium Opens Wednesday Night, March 19 CHAPEL HILL -The More head Planetarium will reopen on Wednesday night, March 19, with the first presentation en titled '"Hie Wonder From Zeiss." The one-hour program, which begins at 8:30 p.m., is Intended to display the capa bilities of the Model VI Zeiss Planetarium Projector. This all new projection instrument was installed during January and February; final testing of the Model VI is now going on. At the same time, Planetari um technicians are also dis mantling the old Model II in strument and replacing some 300 seats removed for instal lation of new equipment. "The Wonder From Zeiss" is a special program which will demonstrate the extraordinary capabilities of the Model VI instrument New types of 4 Livingstone Students Top Deans 'A' List SALISBURY -Four stu dents made straight "A" aver ages to top the 126 students who made the first semester Dean's List at Livingstone Col lege, it was announced today by Dr. James C. Simpson, dean of Instruction at the college. Making perfect 3.00 averag es were Hariette Coston of Edenton, Robert Hughes of Rocky Mount, Bessie Marie Fomey of Belmont, and Miles Wilson of Grimesland. Rounding out the Top 10, with 2.84 to 2.72 averages, in order, were Sharon Hinton, Jr., of Raleigh, Sylvester Sut ton of Edenton, Vivian Leeper of Belmont, Annie Stubbs of West End, Amolia Thompson of Aahevflle, and Neal A Mc- Neill of Oxford. Of the 126 making the honors list, 80 woe female and 46 were male students. By classification, there were 17 freshmen, 26 sophomores, 29 juniors, and 54 seniors. Minimum criterion for being placed on the list is a 2.00, or "B," average on a 3.00 scale. Vice President in charge of development at two universi ties.

"We feel that the letter cli nic will be helpful to many business and professional peo ple," days Floyd Fletcher, Pres ident of the Chamber of Com merce. "This program is open to everyone who wants to write better letters. It is being offered as a service to the business men and women of this community." lenaes and Ught sources in the fixed star projectors result In a night sky of unprecedented realism. The small disks of light which represent the stars have been reduced in size by about 1/3, and increased in bright ness. The stars may be caused to scintillate, or "twinkle," when this effect is desired. The Model VI Instrument also projects 17 different star clus ters and nebulae and the Milky Way. The five planets visible with out a telescope appear in the planetarium's sky nearly as they do in nature's - as points of light indistinguishable from stars except by their position and motion. However, a special feature of the new instrument allows the Planetarium narrator to "zoom in" on the planets Jupiter and Saturn, increasing their size by nine times so that details like the cloud bands of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn become clearly visible. The Planetarium's sun and moon also appear more realis tic, and a special addition on the Model VI allows the spon taneous projection of anyone of five different types of lunar exlipse, eight different solar eclipses, and two different transits of Venus. All of these features, along with many others, will be de monstrated and explained dur ing the presentation of "The Wonder From Zeiss." This special program will only be shown for ten days, however, due to special scheduling de mands imposed by the two and a half month closure for instal lation. "The Wonder From Zeiss" will be followed on March 29th by "Easter the Awaken ing," a traditional favorite at the Morehead Planetarium. "Easter the Awakening" will be presented for only two weeks and to accommodate the estimated 15,000 people who will want to see the story and pageant, the Planetarium's regular school programs will 100 Million "Green Thumbs" ■ I I■V / "Jin I I j iuV Mill 1 I u HiS m| An estimated 100 million Americans will engage in some type of home gardening activity in 1969, according to J. Earl Cook, president, Men's Garden Clubs of America. Cook, riding up on the organization's "mini" garden tractor to officially open the new MGCA national headquarters in Des Moines, lowa, said that the number of Americans engaged in gardening has more than doubled in the past 10 years. "Because garden tractors and other modern conveniences have turned much of the hard work side of gardening into fun," the head o( the 250-chapter coast-to-coast organization noted that "home gardening has become the nation's most popular adult hobby."
