Virgil Partch By Dr. S.L. Andelman The increasing noise level in the modern world has brought greater hazards to the ear, our nervous system and our mental health. In order to understand how noise affects your system, you need to comprehend the term decibel One db is deter- mined by a scientific measure- ment about the faintest aound, the ear can hear. The sound of breathing is about 10 db. Quiet conversation is 60, a whisper 20 and the roar of a jet plane taking off as high as 150. You don't add up sounds the way you count potatoes. Two machines each may emit 60 db of noise, but when they're next to each other you will have a total of about 63 db, not 120. Pressure, As you go up the decibe scale, the sound pressure in Dr. S. L. Andelman Panel To Study United Way Agency Needs United Way President Dr William K. Ramstad Wednes day appointed John Gerber as the chairman of an ad hoe com mittee 'to consider the advisa- bility, feasibility, and proba- bility for a continuing five-yeai capital fund program for Unitec Way agencies. "There are many maintenance problems for agencies such as YMCA, YWCA, Jane Boyd Com- munity. House, and others which have hot been taken care of be- cause don't have a system to fund these repairs. We are asking Mr. Gerber and his com- mittee to consider seme alterna- tives 'and to make a recommen- dation to us as to how we can best meet this Ram- stad said. "It is my personal feeling that if ure don't gear ourselves to meeting the ongoing and emergency repairs of our build- ings, it won't be too long before we will be faced with monu- mental replacement cost Gerber said.

At 140 db, the limit of hearing by man, an increase of 1 db will require about 10 million times as much pressure as that which produced 140 db. Frequent or continuous noise at levels of about 85 or 90 db will result in permanent hearing loss. The vital hearing apparatus can't stand the abuse and will be damaged. The damage is related to the amount of exposure to the noise. If your ears are permitted to re- cover between attacks of noise, you may not lose your hearing permanently. can stand 99 db for eight hours if you then shut off the noise But for every increase of 5 db you must cut your exposure time in half. At 95 db, for ex- ample, you should avoid expos- ing your ears for more than four hours at a time. Earmuffs If you work in an occupation where the noises are over 85db, you should wear fitted earplugs or earmuffs to shut out part of the noise.
