    CHARLES JOHNSON, LEADER OF FLAT EARTH SOCIETY, DIES AT 76 
    
        (Lancaster, California-AP) -- The president of the nonconformist
    International Flat Earth Society has died in Lancaster, California.
        Charles Johnson -- who headed the organization for nearly 30
    years -- was 76.
        The Flat Earth Society believes the Earth is actually shaped
    like a platter with a magnetic North Pole in the middle. Believers
    reject science, and satellite photos, as part of an elaborate hoax.
        Johnson also believed the nation's space program was an
    elaborate fraud perpetrated by the government.
        The Flat Earth Society -- which claims a membership of about
    35-hundred -- was as founded in Illinois at the turn of the last
    century.
        Its headquarters was relocated to Johnson's Hi Vista home when
    he became the organization's president in 1972.
