CATALINA ISLANDER PAGE THREE MARS NEARING THE EARTH On August 22 the ~Tarrior planet will draw nearer to us than it has been for ahnost two hundred years. Every fifteen years it comes nearer than us- ual, but on this occasion it will be as near to us as it possibly can be. We swing around the sun inside of &e orbit of Mars, and make the circle in ~t~lina ~ half the time that it takes.Mars to go All $Cubs Whitewash Pasadena around once, so that in a little over '~'da t~rs in Well Played Contest. two years we overtake and pass Mars. at ttis2~'vkins Has Pasaden~ Crew "~Vhen we pass it at the greatest dis- lie att;n.Qrcy Throughout the Strug- tance apart we are about 61,000,000 ~f u, tl Also Gave a Good Account miles from each other.

Friday evening of this week we shall be less than 35,000,000 miles from Mars. From the standpoint of popular interest, the planet will be very brilliant, and its ruddy luster will dominate the somheastern sky. It will be twice as bright as Jupiter, which has been commanding the southern sky. But its greatest interest is to the man of science, for to him it is still a mystery. In appearance it is much as the earth would be if we were off in space looking out upon it. By means of direct observation, photographs, spectroscope and radiometer the as- sault upon the mystery of the planet will be made. The scientists are try- ing to solve the following problems about Mars: Is it a world like the earth? Has it in reality, as it seems to have, seasons such as we have? How much atnmsphere has it? Are the mysterious lines cracks or canals ? Is it inhabited by intelligent beings? The above and other questions will be discussed in an interesting and competent manner by the "Sky Pilot," RE-ErrOr (Floor Leader 1923 Session) Republican Candidate for ASSEMBLY, 71st District Vote for him at the Primary, August 26th [ PAINTING PAPERHANGING LET US REPAIR THOSE LEAKS AND PAINT YOUR ROOF NOW BEFORE THE RAINY SEASON STARTS MEL LEN 321 CLEMENTE AVENUE Phone 141-J P.O.
