Contents: Preface : January 1, 1925 --
Setting out. The little republic of science ; A rather remarkable number of nebulae ; Grander than the truth ; Such is the progress of astronomy in the wild and wooly West ; My regards to the squashes ; It is worthy of notice --
Exploration. Empire builder ; The solar system is off center and consequently man is too ; He surely looks like the fourth dimension! ; Go at each other "hammer and tongs" ; Adonis ; On the brink of a big discovery --
or maybe a big paradox --
Discovery. Countless whole worlds --
strewn all over the sky ; Using the 100-inch telescope the way it should be used ; Your calculations are correct, but your physical insight is abominable ; Started off with a bang --
Whatever happened to.
Responsibility: Marcia Bartusiak.
