Mr. Abbott,' who has been in charge of the telescope since the planetarium was first opened several years ago, is noted for his ln-| teresting comments on the solar sys-! lem couched ln phrases of the lay-j man, according to Mr. Stonier, and | this part of the excursion should I be long remembered by Summer Session students Dr. Dlnsmore Alter, director ot the Orlfflth planetarium, ia scheduled to give the lecture the night of the student excursion and to operate the huge Zeiss apparatus that depicts the progress of the stars over a period of thousands of years. That the celestial seeming to be the outpouring of the very heavens themselves, combined with the beauty of the surroundings and the majesty of the stars—so near that one is tempted to reach up and touch them—make the planetarium trip a never-to-be-forgotten experience ls the almost unanlmoua opinion expressed by all who have Continued on page four Rankings were: Class A bands—Division I Gilroy vvtiat type of education will besl and San Fernando high schools, jirjp youth lo help themselves will Division II Beverly Hills and Bel- ^ (jie (.oncfrn of the conference, mont high schools of Los Angeles. w)j| ope,) 0)1 Wednesday, July Division III Reno high school of e a -survey of Needs” in thi* Reno, Nevada. particular field, according to the Class B bands Division II Globe preliminary announcement, high school.
