Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1962, Abilene, Texas Abilene "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 67 ABILENE, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 22, j JHBR' JjMHL 9c OT PAGE ONE [By Katharyn Dujfj Very few of us are lolling on the beach, a doctor-reader points out, when we read or hear the weatherman's report that our atmospheric pressure is so-much "reduced to sea lev- el." Furthermore, he warmed to his topic, "ridges" are diffi- cult to see up there in the sky. "Troughs" are supposed to be for the feeding of pigs. And what arc "highs" and "lows" and why? We have been yanked, in other words, he continued, (rom the age-old era of cloud-watch- ing and bunion-gauging into the age of scientific meteorology without the necessary enlarge- ment of vocabulary. Can't Weatherman C. Sitchler help'.' the doctor asked. Why, of course. It's simple, really. A few easy definitions and, while you may not be qualified for do it yourself forecasting, you, too, can speak learnedly. Isobars. Dew points. Counter- clock-wisc around a low in this hemisphere, that is. The "Old Bear" at the air- port can get real technical and lose you in a maze of relative humidity. But he can speak in English, too. And he offers, at the doctor's request, this basic Sitchler weather glossary. SKA LEVEL Where we wish we WITC. but. weathenvise, the basis for comparison of the "weight" of the atmosphere at the elevations of the various weather stations. Since eleva- tion affects pressures you can use the barometer to measure height the various pressures are "reduced to sea level" .so they will be more meaningful. PRESSURE Weight of the atmosphere. Normal, at sea level, is about 29.92. Oh. call it 30. That's in inches of mercury in the barometer, a handy measurement for the layman. Mean, or "normal." pressure [or Ahilene, elevation feet, is about 28.28 inches in the win- ter. 28.12 in the summer. HIGH Above normal pres- sure. And there can be a "ridge" of this. LOW Below normal pres- sure and it can he arranged in a "trough." 'In the northern hemisphere nature turns lo the right, Sitch- ?er explains. So. wind around a high pressure area is being pushed out, turns right and thus moves clockwise. Winds around a low is being pulled in- ward, turns righl and thus moves counter-clockwise. See? I RELATIVE HUMIDITY not as in kinfolk, but as in the amount of mois- ture in the air as compared to the amount of moisture the air could hold. DEW POINT Now there's an impressive term. Translated, it's the temperature at which moisture in the atmosphere con- denses. VISIBILITY How far you can see horizontally. This can be measured precisely. Or, if you can see the Woolen Hotel from the weather station you know visibility is at least three and a half miles. CEILING Vertical visi- bility. The maximum height at which a pilot could see the ground half the time. ISOBAR you're get- ting into high cotton. It's "a line connecting or marking places upon the surface of the earth where the height of the barometer reduced to sea level is the same." FRONT The boundary be- tween air masses, SQUALL It's ahead of the front and, Silchlcr says, the squall storms locally are worse than the frontal storms. And at this point in his short short course in meteorology the weatherman could no longer re- drain himself. "Speaking of squall, did you know the Silehlers now have their third NEWS INDEX SECTION A Sporti Oil SECTION Obituoriti...... Women1!

Rita and Teresa called for peanut but- ter sandwiches and told their story in the monosyllables char- acteristic of 7-year-olds. They said they had made use of the bathroom on previous oc- casions, knowing the apartment was vacant and finding it more convenient than running home. Sunday, however, one of the girls pulled the door shut and they were trapped by a defective lock. Army and Marine Corps detach- ments joined some 250 policemen, "They tried to call out but it'girls. Federal agents acted on the as- sumption the girls had been kid- naped after Maj. Russell A.

The FBI gave this terse report: "About p.m. one of our spe- cial agents who was part of a team of about 50 agents conduct- ing a terrain search found the HIGH COURT ACTS Oct. 31 Hearing On Mandamus j San Angelo filed the mandamus action Tuesday as one of the CCH He was accompanied by {for four reasons: 2 I Amtmmcnti............

The carriers were tailed by American military vehicles all the way into and out of West Berlin without incident. The Western Allies meanwhile look steps to halt violence at the Communist wall, among them the stationing of a U.S. Army ambu- lance on standby duty at the sec- tor border to aid any refugees shot by East German guards. West police picked up 96 per- sons, including four women, for dentity checks. Authorities said they were trying to determine if any Communist agents were among them. All were rounded up within a few blocks of Checkpoint Charlie. The Russians, apparently tired of dodging rocks and bottles hurled by angry West Berlin crowds, crossed over from East Berlin in a protected convoy but without any show of arms. Heavy rain and extra police dis- couraged any new outbursts by West Berliners protesting the slaying of a young East German refugee at the wall last Friday. But the Soviets were taking no chances. In place of the usual buses for the change of guard at the war memorial located in the British sector, the sentries rode in three armored carriers. Bringing up the rear Were a Soviet staff car, an American mil- itary police sedan and two West Berlin motorcycle police. The con- voy reached the memorial with- out incident. On the trip back, also unevent- ful, tlie convoy was tailed by five U.S. M.P. cars as far as Check- point Charlie at the border. A U.S. Army spokesman com- mented: "We have no objection to the Soviets comining in this kind ol vehicle as long as they don't show arms. If they want to ride "n discomfort, that's their own business." The spokesman said the person- nel carriers usually carry six men in addition to the driver. He added he did not know how many Russians were in the vehicles. The shooting of an East Ger man refugee last Friday triggered three nights of bloody anti-Corn- unist riots and some anti- American enraged West Berliners that pushed this divided city to new heights ol tension. An Allied spokesman said the ambulance will "attempt to give medical assistance to any futurt refugee victim of Communist bul lets on the East Berlin side ol the wall." It was not spelled out whether the ambulance itself would go through the border checkpoint into East Berlin if cir- cumstances warranted. The Allies laid part of the blame for the violent wall dem- onstrations on Communist agents. They charged the Reds were try- ing to stir up trouble at a time when Moscow is raising pressure to force the Western garrison from the isolated city. The rising tension in Berlin pact.
