Period Starts Sunday,
To End Next Week

At 9:30 p.m.


In a vote of loop coaches, Ken
tucky, defending champion, Ala
bama, Tennessee, and the Univer
sity of Georgia were selected as the
four seeded teams in the seventh
annual Southeastern conference basketball tournament which opens
Thursday morning In Knoxville.
The Cats also- received a first
round bye that automatically shoves
them into round two against the
winner of the Vanderbilt-Missteslp-State game.
Seeding of Kentucky came as a
distinct surprise since the Cats fin
ished their conferene season In
tie for sixth place with four wins
and as many losses. However, in
view of Kentucky's monopoly of the
tournament in the past and its role
as defending titllst, a favored spot
was awarded Coach Adolph Rupp's
battered Wldlcats.
With every sign pointing to
wide open affair, every team in the
conference with the exception of
meek Sewanee, winless this season,
decided to compete for the cup.
Other than Kentucky, Alabama,
Florida and Mississippi came in for
a share of the luck with first round
byes. This year seeded teams did
not as was the case In previous
tourneys, receive byes, but the automatic advancements were drawn
from a hat.
Kentucky Is slated to make its
initial appearance at 9:30 Thursday night against either Vanderbilt

of planets
A rare configuration
will be visible in the western sky
during the last week of February
and the first week of March, according to Doctor H. H. Downing, professor of mathematics, in charge of
astronomy at the University.
Six of the major planets, starting
with the closest. Mercury, Venus,
Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus
will be lined up in an extremely
rare astronomical figure which is
practically a straight line. Mercury
may be seen, for an hour after sunset, for a week before and a week
after February 28. This planet will
be followed in the line by Jupiter,
Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Uranus.
Uranus will not be seen with the
naked eye however.

Although some sunspots now are
visible with the aid of smoked glasses, records show that the greatest
sunspot period was during the
month of July, 1937. Two large
spots accompanied by from 6 to 8
smaller ones have passed across the
disk of the sun during the past two
Bad weather usually follows an
increase of sunspots. On the average maximum sunspot periods occur every 11 and one half years.
These sunspots are accompanied by
magnetic conditions.
The observatory will be opened
between 7 and 8:30 p m. on Mondays
and the public is invited to view this
astronomic phenomenon. Dr. Downing stated.
