Excerpt from The Farmville Quarterly Review, Vol. 1: November, 1936
The sun is over a million times as heavy as our earth, and is approximately 93,000,000'mi1es distant, and yet the earth could revolve on its orbit around the sun within the circumference of Betelguese, the giant star within the constellation of Orion.
Thus it is apparent that our sun is in reality nothing but a dwarf star.
