involved ulti mately may prove to be unsuc cessful But the very least these surgeons have proved is that re joining severed limbs for an ex tended period of time is no longer an impossibility The two cases here though similar in some ways are vast ly different in others Last May Everett Knowles 13 Somerville Mass had his right arm completely severed by a train Last week William Hunt 37 a husky exMarine had his left icg 90 per cent sev ered about half way up his thigh in an automobile accident Today both the youngster and the man have these limbs still attached to their bodies The Knowles surgery done at Massachusetts General Hospital where a team of surgeons were waiting for just such a case probably was the more difficult of the two The boy also prob ably has a poorer chance of re gaining use of the limb Everetts arm was severed just below the shoulder and the bone broken in half The doc tors first sutured arteries and veins then rejoined the bones with a steel rod and finally sewed the arm back into place The boy a Little League pitcher until his accident still must undergo additional opera tually useless though there was a pulse and the limb was warm Should this surgery

The building is the property of all of us and all of us should help pay for it if the job is done he said If someone wants to give us Ill be first in line to accept it Hughes said This is a beautiful

conversational tidbit but its hav ing a jolting impact this winter on millions of residents of the United States the British Isles and western Europe The circulation of the upper air has determined the targets in a series of global blows struck by a winter which although only onethird completed has been the moat vicious in years A steady procession of cold waves has rolled down into the central United States spread ing freezing weather into the crop growing areas of the Deep South and Southern California Western Europe and the British Isles have had 33 consecutive clays of freezing weather The se vere cold has filled hospitals with stricken patients and produced serious fuel and food shortages in many pi aces The story has been different in Alaska Temperatures in that nor mal icebox region have been run ning well above zero and often above the feczing mark Why tlie topsyturvcy pattern Weather forecasters explain hat there always is an inexhaus tible supply of cold air over the arctic region in the winter It ei ther stays there or is moved somewhere else by air currents If it moves away more builds up rapidly in the region where there is much snow and little or no sun light A ridge of high pressure air stalled in off the West Coast has caused the severe weather affect ing most areas of the United States Air has circulated from north lo south cast of this ridge spread ing polar air across much of the United States and Canada A south to north air flow west of the ridge has been carrying warm air up the Pacific Ocean and into Alaska displacing the cold air there The West Coasts high pressure ridge shows no sign of moving on and the long range weather forecast through Feb 15 calls for below normal temperatures in most of the northern twothirds of the United States Nor is there any sign of a letup in the severe cold caused by a north to south air flow over West ern Europe The speed of air circulation also determines the intensity of the cold The circulation has been un usually strong over the United States this winter Senate Majority Leader Robert Rigler of New Hampton said Tues day I beiieve Gov Hughes has an obligation to the voters of Iowa to tell them just what he meant about liquor during the campaign last year Certainly if there was one issue he capitalized on dur ing the campaign it was liquor by the drink House Majority Leader John Mowry of M a r s
