After The Moon: What Next? Assuming that man will now continue to explore the moon and that there will come a day when the whole bit will become ho-hum, where do we go from here? The next logical step is Mart. But what a step this is. The moon-as impossible as reaching it seemed a few years ago-is a next-door neighbor compared to Mars. And even landing on the moon places us no nearer Mars in distance. By Clin Times Mans Moon--a satellite of Earth -is 238,866 miles away. Mars t Fuller iging Editor ?which has satellites of its own is 34,000,000 miles. Man traveled to the Moon in less than four days. It is expected to take 237 days to reach Mars. Mariner 6 will sweep by Mars about July 31 to ob serve the equatorial zones. Mariner 7 will pass the planet five days later to take close up pictures of the southern pnlar mginn. Both vehicles are expected to transmit more than a hundred photographs, ranging from full disk views to de tailed studies from a distance of., about 2,000 miles. The pictures will show features only 900 feet wide. Mariner 4, the spacecraft that made the first historic pictures of Mars in 1965, managed a resolution of two miles. The best telescope on earth sights Martian 1 details about 100 miles wide. Instruments will teat Mar tian atmosphere for atomic and diatomic dements such as carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen. Some scientists feel that ozone may be the key to evolution on Mars. The presense of this oxygen variant above enters or low lands probably would indi cate the existence of oxygen molecule* that might support life, according to a National Geographic report. Ultra violet spectrometers on the Mariners can detect ozone down to one-thousandth of the amount in earth's atmos phere. Mars seems more earthlike than any other planet. The Martian day is almost identi cal to that of earth 's-- ?4 hours and 37 minutes. Its tilt on it* axis-about 24 degrees -reeembles that of earth's. The climates are similar al though nights on Man are aaid to be much colder than ours. Mars is the only other world known to have seasons. The white caps that cover the Martian poles expand in win ter and contract in summer. As the caps shrink, a wave of darkening occurs along their edge. Water vapor in the at mosphere above the poles ap pears to increase, suggesting that the caps consist of a layer of frozen water. The caps may contain more dry ice than ordinary ice. It is calculated that poles reach temperatures as low as minus 200 degrees F, which would freeze carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Ma riner 7's low pass over the polar region may end specula tion here. But, once the answers to nan's questions about the moon are forthcoming, will the next logical step be Mars? In our lifetime? Who knows? Local Golfers Quality Four local youngsters qualified for the State Jaycee Junior Gold Tournament last week here at Green Hilt Country Club. A fifth was chosen first alternate.

Highlights of that week show ed a strong Cooper team bow ing in defeat on three occas ions; First-Citizens defeating Bunn for the second time for Bunn's only two Iosmi; Harris Pharmacy showing Its class by continuing to win; and final ly, the selection of the All -Star Teams for the two age brackets. It Is encouraging to the Uttle League as an entity that the Bunn entry suffered its only two defeats in the history of the league. While not wishing any team misfor tune, it is good that a better balance of victories versus losses has been attained with in the league. Hopefully, it is a sign that the Little League is stronger rather than the Bunn team being weaker. And we 4iave every reason to beleive that it is the former rather than the latter. The Junior League began with a better balance with the Redwings of Harris Pharmacy spurting toward the end to claim the League Champion ship. It was suspected that Bunn, Creed moor and Camp Butner would be the strength at the beginning. However, this proved to be a fallacy as Nash Farms of Louisburg played them even and the Redwings of Louisburg won the crown, as stated earlier. At an awards ? picnic affair for the league players and their parents at Louisburg College Student nion on Tueaday night, July 22; 7:00 P.M., sponsored by the Louis burg Rotary Club, the Little League All-Star line-up will be announced. Their first round of competition will commence July 30, against Raleigh at Garner. The Junior League Players have already been notified and are buiy at practice as their first game is Thursday, July 24, at Bunn against Garner. They will be present at the Rotary affair to receive their awards. We encourage all locals to follow these teams onward to vic tory. Special Bulletin!!! The Louisburg Junior League All-Star Team will play the All-Start of Garner Thursday night at 8:00 P.M. on the Bunn High School field. There will be no admission charge; however, donations are encouraged. David Batton, Chief Deputy to Sheriff Dement, is serving as official host to this occasion.
