6B January 29, 2004 Entertainment The Cuba Free Press a, UMR observatory to host four visitor n tst wint r Several planets will be visible aider sun- set in the night sky this winter, says Dr. John L. Schniitt, associate professor of physics at the University of Missouri- Rolla, and amateur astronomers and curi- ous skywatchers will be able to view them through the UMR Observatory's 16-inch telescope. Weather permitting, the UMR Observatory will open its doors on four Friday evenings throughout the winter semester. Visitors' Nights will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30; Friday, Feb. 27; and Friday, March 26; arK] 9 p.m. Friday, April 30. They are free of charge and no reserva- tions are required. Viewing is subject to weather conditions. Visitors' Night dates are set by the quar- ter moon, Schmitt says, because it is visi- ble early in the evening. "Even if it is part- ly cloudy, the moon is very bright and may be visible through thin clouds, also the first quarter moon had well-defined craters and is easy to view." As many as five different planets, in addition to the moon, can be viewed during this semester's schedule. "Usually we have one or two planets, plus the moon," Schmitt says. "The locations are set by the orbits of the planets and there just happen to be several planets visible at sunset this semester." Schmitt notes that visitors interested in catching a glimpse of Mercury at the March 26 viewing should come early. "Mercury will be very low in the western sky at 7 p.m. and viewing will be possible only for limited time," he says. "Very few people know that they have seen Mercury with the naked eye, and even fewer have seen it through a telescope." Built in 1973, the UMR Observatory is adjacent to UMR's Stonehenge replica on Highway 63 North, north of V.H. McNutt Hall and west of St. Patrick's Lane. For more information contact Schmitt in the UMR physics department at 573-341-4369 or email Vance Randolph's Ozark Folklc re to be discussed at UMR The Ozark folk tales of Vance Randolph will be the subject of a lecture on the University of Missouri-Rolla campus later this month. The lecture is the second in a series to promote Ozarks culture at UMR. "Ozark Bawdy: Sex, Sexuality and Gender in the Folklore of the Ozarks" will be presented at noon Friday, Jan. 30, in Room 204 McNutt Hall on the UMR campus. The lec- ture, which is free and open to the public, is presented by Dr. Anne Goodwyn JoneS', the Maxwell C. Weiner Professor for the Humanities at UMR. "When Vance Randolph col- lected folk tales from people in the Ozarks, among those tales he inevitably heard stories about bodies - eating, defecat- ing, having sex, and laughing about it," Jones says. "Those tales, labeled 'obscene' or 'bawdy' by editors and publish- ers, were censored or bowdler- ized in his publications, both academic and popular, until 1976, when his book 'Pissing in the Snow' finally appeared." Randolph's experience is characteristic of folklore histo- ry, Jones says. "Bawdy, like the body, was simply part of life, if  6"b " ll-X-'-: not part of the publications. '1 :..r.

Jones will discuss these and other questions as she retells some of Randolph's stories and adds others. "The talk is rated PG-13," Jones explains. "There is a lot of body talk, but very lit- tle bodily violence and almost no killing." The lecture is funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Dr. Kate Drowne, assistant professor of English at UMR and director of UMR's Writing Across the Curriculum Program, recently received the $25,000 NEH grant to promote American studies - specifically topics relating to Ozarks cul- ture. The grant will bring scholars to campus over the next two semesters to give presentations on various elements of Ozarks literature, history and culture.
