PAGE lU THE FLORALA NEWS THURSDAY, THE PAXTON Paxton Holds Tri-County Track Meet EIGHTH GRADE HAS STAR GAZE Thursday, April 18, about twenty eighth graders turned out for a good view of the Spring skies. The gorgeous clear skies revealed the rings of Saturn, Mars' red globe, the beautiful Pliedes cluster, the Orion nubula ( a birth- place of stars), and the Crab Nebula, the remains of a su- pernova in 1054 A.D. Several students learned enough retake a constellation quiz on Friday and received bonus points for their attendance Besides the stars, other ob- jects of interest were two earth satellites, the first se- veral persons had ever seen, It was eerie to watch these orbiting laboratories slide into the earth's shadow in the eas- tern sky and disappear.

EAR TH SCIENCE DIGS FOSSILS The earth science class have begun collecting, cleaning, and identifying their fossils for a new fossil fair program. The class members have sets of fossils £rom Texas, Alabama, and Florida,, some as much as six hundred million years old. There IS a sense of excitement m the room as the careful cleaning continues, for some rocks hide beautiful specimens, revealed only be careful clean- mg and preparation. So far Doug Morgan and Terrell Presley have found several trilobites and grapto- lites in shale from Montavello,- Alabama. James Morrisonhas some beautiful shells from Wolf Creek, above Shoal River. San- dra Dorsey is trying to clean a beautiful sand dollar encased in limestone. Keith Miller has a display board of recent cari- bbean corals almost finished. And Thomas Fulgham hopes to bring back some more fossils [rum Texas as his family visits over Easter. It's an interesting time in earth science. The District meet is at Freeport May 3. We're hoping to have a track meet next week at Paxton.
