Proctor In the southern sky as the stars come out these evenings of late June , one star , the famous An- tares in the constellation of the Scorpion , stands out strikingly red in color. The Greeks , who knew the god of war . and the planet named for him as Ares , ga ve this star its name of An- tares, which means \ rival of Ares \ , while we who call the planet Mars as it was known to the Romans , would refer to Antares as the \ rival of Mars. \ It is an appropriate name for a star whose color so closely resembles the red of te planet that they look like red twins whenever they are seen close together as they usually are for several evenings when Mars is making one of its close visits to the earth. Antares is a supergiant among the stars , some 400 million miles in diameter , so enormous that if the sun wer e put at its center , there would , be room enough completely within it for four planets - Mercury , Venus, the earth , and Mars - to follow their orbits around the sun. In volume forty million suns would be required to equal it , yet so nearly is Antares only a red-hot vacuum that its huge sphere contains only material enough to make about thirty suns. In. its beauty and majesty, Scorpius is the constellation of the summer skies which rivals Orion , the great ornament of the winter heavens. It is an easy constellation to find and trace if you have a vantage point from which there is a good view down to the low southern horizon. Red Antares will stand out clear and red as the starting point. Above and to its righ t are three stars arrnged in a shallow arc roughly perpendicular to the horizon . They are the claws of the Scor- pion. Down from them through Antares stretches the long line of stars that outline the Scorpion ' s body and end in an upward loop to the left so that they form what looks like a fishhook or a capital letter J.

Summer Cinema The Possession Of Joe l Delaney B y Steve Podd If you are looking for a first ra te thriller , The Possession Of Joel Delaney is for you . With all the trash released at local theatres recently, this film shines with excitement and is a top notch suspense yarn. Shirley MacLaine gives a beautiful performance and the film is in her capable hands . She plays a rich divorcee whose brother begins to act strangely after his return from Africa . The suspense builds as the audience and Miss MacLaine begin to find out why. The picture holds your interest all the way until the chilling climax , and is well worth your time and money . On the same bill is the disasterous Hannie Caulder. If you ' re smart , skip it , but don 't miss The Possession of Joel Delanev.
