C. -in Iceland the past few decades have t>een the warmest in a thousand years. Through the sixties, India had fewer droughts than it did at tin* beginning of the century. And since the 1930s, the Uqjted States has had a steady spell of adequate rainfall, warm temperatures, and mild winters. Climate experts now fear that these good years were deceptive ones, and that we now face the strong possibility of a climate that will be considerably less hospitable and will pose serious threats to a food supply that is already strained. A ll bough there are considerable arguments among climatologists climate experts over whether recent weather pattern? are merely momentary aberrations or portents of long-lasting change, there is agreement that something odd is going on. For example: —Moscow had its worst drought in 399 years. —The winters in Iceland and Greenland have turned harsher - a respected warning sign since both of these countries are regarded as good indicators of global climatic change. —There have been unusually mild winter? in Siberia, and unusually high rainfall in the U. S. Midwest. —Drought areas now pock tin* globe Central America, sub Sahara West Africa, South Asia, China, and Australia are among the countries affected, The droughts have in part been brought on by an apparent shift iii the duration and locations of monsoons. This is particularly disturbing since food for about half the world’s people is grown in the monsoon zones. Against these portents of climatic change is posed a global food supply that is highly vulnerable. Tilt1 grain reserves of the U. S stand at their lowest in 20 years. The world’s fish catch has dropped significantly since 1970. The price per bushel of wheat has doubled. And in the U, S. this year there will be no more idle wheat growing lands due to government support programs. In short, there remains no immediately available fallback position should there be serious crop failures due to climatic change. What now concerns climatologists and food experts alike is an accurate interpretation of weather patterns and a deeper understanding of the susceptibility of climate to change. What is being intensely debated is the downward trend of the Northern Hemisphere’s CAMBRIDGE. England (AP) — The Rubens masterpiece “The Adoration of the Magi,” one of the world’s most valuable paintings, has been defaced State Sen.

IRA stands for the Irish Republican Army, the Roman Catholic-based guerilla organization waging a terrorist campaign to unite the British province of Northern Ireland with the Irish Republic. The 17th century painting, wine i stands in the King's college chapel at the university, was bought at auction for I$660.(HK) in 1959. It was given to King’s college by London businessman Alfred Allnatt two [years later. Small Theft Tells Nixon Palestinian Issue Is Key DAMASCUS, Syria (UPI) — Flying in through an unintended security scare that caused tense moments aboard his jet, President Nixon Saturday got a cordial welcome to Damascus followed by the toughest lecture he ha? yet heard on the Arab requirements for Middle East peace. President Hafez Assad greeted Nixon with formal honors upon arrival at his third Middle East tour stop, rode with him through throngs of applauding citizens in the heavily-guarded capital and then bluntly stated in an evening dinner speech what it will take to establish peace in the region. “The only lasting and durable peace would be a peace that would terminate Israeli occupation, restore the land to its (Palestinian) people, remove the ^grievances inflicted upon the people of Palestine and ensure them of their legitimate national rights,” he said. Justifies Terrorism Assad said the rights of the Palestinians lay at the heart of these peace requirements and, blaming Israel, he added that Palestinians ‘‘despair of the justice of man and international organizations.” “By doing this, they (the Israelis) have forced the Palestinian people to follow a path not of their own choice in order to remind the world of their existence, of their case,” he said, referring to guerilla action. “No peace can be established in this region, unless a real and just solution is found for the Palestine question.” “No Instant Solutions” Assad praised U. S. initiatives in attempting to mediate peace and Nixon responded, as he has to other Arab leaders, that he has “no instant solutions” to the problems of the region. “You have indicated your concern about such matters as the Palestinians which we of course understand, your borders which we of course understand and your concern for other matters,” Nixon said. He said he and Assad Sunday would “explore in greater detail all of the factors involved in the mean temperature since 1945. This represents a reversal of warming period that began a in the mid to late Nineteenth century. This cooling trend amounts to a drop of about 3 degrees fahrenheit. But is a change of a few degrees important? Yes, argue climatologists such as Reid Bryson of the University of Wisconsin. For example, when the average temperature of the growing season in Iceland dropped one degree, hay production went down by 25 percent, in spite of the increased use of fertilizer. Ullin a tie change outweighed technological intervention. Another more dramatic indicator that seemingly small climatic changes can produce dramatic effects is that the mean temperatures between the peak of the last ice age (Continued: Page 3, Col. 4.) “ Hie chapel was broken into during the night and a large oak coffer wats also broken into and some coins removed,” the college spokesman said “Police were called but it was I not until later in the morning when a tourist spotted the damage that we realized anything I else had happened.” Despite the initials scratched I [across the painting, there was (Continued: Page 3, Col. 4.) tonight.” “I can simply state tonight ! that we do not consider the first (Continued: Page 3, Col. 2 ) Today’s Index SECTION A Lait Ntws I, I.
