HOW EARTH WAS FORMED.
Professor Chamberlain , of the Chicago
University , Expounds Theory.
In an address at the opening ses
sion of the annual meeting of the Con-
ral Association of Science and Math
ematics Teachers yesterday , Prof.
Thomas Crowder Chamberlain , of the
Jnlversity of Chicago , outlined his re
cently announced "accretion theory"
of the earth's origin , which , if accept
ed by scientists , Will overthrow the
so-called "nebular hypothesis" and do
away with most of the ideas common-
y held as to the origin of the earth
and the other planets.
According to the "nebular hypoth
esis , " or Leplaco theory , which has
> een held for over a century , the earth
and the other planets originally were
nasses of molten matter thrown off
from the sun by Its whirling motion
ind gradually cooled to their present
condition. This theory rroi. unam-
lerlaln attacks on the assumption that
ho sun never had a whirling velocity
sufficient to throw off such bodies.
Prof. Chamberlain's theory Is that
1 disturbance was caused In our sun
iy the near approach of , or collision
vlth , some other sun , which drew off
rejections of nebulous matter from
ur sun and gave them a rotary motion
> y its own attraction as it passed.
Those particles of matter then grad-
nlly gathered together to form the

Prof. Chamberlain , developed by com

mathematics from the central states.
