A" state audit for the year end
ing June 30, 1951, showed an

caused, Bridges explained, mostly
by; accumulating new stocks of
supplies at higher costs, and then
carrying the costs of old stocks
on the books at the price of the
newer ones. -
' The Carolina Inn's profits fell
from $25,270 to $13,843, the audit
showed. The profits would have
increased an' additional $1,789 if
the Inn had been paid for the
Morehead Building's special
meals, according to the audit.

"Rainbows and Halos," which

Planetarium, features man-made
luminous phenomena and their
occurrence in nature, Manager
Anthony Jenzano said yesterday.
Most familiar of these phen
omena is the rainbow, Jenzano
said. Explaining the misconcep
tion that only the reflection of
sunlight ffcom drops of rain is
responsible for this band of light,
Jenzano said mere reflection
alone could not produce the va
riety of colors in the bow. ,
Planetarium visitors will see a
huge rainbow appear following a
realistic thundershower and asso
