The wind chill factor is a re- cent addition In (he u-eaUior re- port. Jt ;s sciujuhat mystify-! ing because il is not based on i scientific measure-] menls. The weatherman can I read tile exacl temperature from an unbiased thermometer. lie can measure rainfall, wind slrcaglh and direction from other scientific instruments thai have no personal opinions of their own. However. Ihe wind chiU factor includes an aver- age human reaction lo Hie weather. On a calm day, chr.necs are you can guess tile outdoor tem- perature, nearly right on Hie i button. Dul u" a mild breeze blowing, many people feel that things are a few degrees cooler than they really are. If a strong wind is blustering around. Hie average person may estimate the temperature to be as as 20 degrees below what it ac- tually is. This problem inter- ested meteorologists wording in the Antarctic, back in 1939. Many attempts were made to tie Ihis wind chilling factor !o a scale that would give the av-1 erage person an idea hovr the' weather is likely to feel, in spite of what the Ihennomcler This was not easy because tho average person is hard lo find and various people react dif- ferently to the chilling effects of Ihe wind. As a rule, plump people feel il less and skinny people feel it more. And any- body wearing thin or damp clothing shudders in a cold breeze. Meteorologists comput- ed numerous opinions to eharl Hie reactions of the average person. 1 Tliis charl compares the true thermometer temperature with the velocity of the wind. For example, let's suppose that the actual temperature outdoors is 30 degrees F. The of the wind seems to reduce this by a specified number of de- grees. If today's wind velocity is five miles per hour, the chill factor is three degrees. If it is ten miles, the cliill factor makes it feel like 16 degrees F. A 20- miie-an-hour wind makes a person feel that, the 30 degrees F temperature is 4 degrees F. Obviously, the system is based on the speed of the wind. It works because moving air removes bcdy heat. In calm air. the no-mal heal produced by the body tends lo hover near the skin, trapped in the clothing. A stiff wind removes this cocoon of boriy and replaces it with cooler air. This is why the cliill factor from a blustery wind seems [o pene- trate right through to a per- son's bones. IL is nici to know what lo ex- pect from the weather wlien we step outdoors. Naturally a thermometer reading of ten de- grees F wculd warn us lo wear something warm. Hi'l it would hardly prepare, us for the ef- fect s of a ten-nule-an-hour wind. At tills velocity, the chill factor phnges IS degrees. In other words, we should prepare to ccpe with .T shivery temper- ature of minus nine degrees F, even though the thermometer insists on ten degrees F.

(Copyright Chronicle) I ulilisliiug Co. 1372) Dear Dr. Lamb I have hr.d seizures since I was 11 or 12 years old, and I am now 32 and have them occasionally, but only al night after a ner- vous, exhausting day. My par- ents call them fainting spells and will not discuss this prob- lem. My question is my hus- band feels I should tell our 13-year-old daughter that Iier children will probably have epi- lepsy. Can trie type of seizure I have be inherited? Dear Header There is no yes or no answer to your ques- tion. Unless your husband also has epilepsy, however, there isn't a real high probability that either your daughter or her children will have the problem. Actually only three lo five pel- cent of the relatives of individ- uals wiUi epilepsy also have the same problem. I am more concerned about your parents1 attitude toward the problem and what it may have done lo you. Epilepsy is jusl another ill- ness and a fairly frequent one at thai. You certainly should be under medical supervision if you are not and a person with as infrequent episodes as your letter indicates is usually eas- ily controlled with medicine. I It is always disconcerting to see someone attach a stigma to a medical illness. Some of Ihe most important figures in world history have also had epilepsy, which was why Julius Caesar had the "falling and Alexander the Great is also re- [jorlcd by some authorities to have been an epileptic. The world would have been quite a different place without eith- er of them. Dear Dr. I.aiub 1 am 77 and have Inch blood pressure with poor circulation. 1 am tak- ing medicine from the doctor plus fluid pills for swelling in my legs and I can't sleep at night. A friend of mine told me i wine was good for the circu- lalion. Would you advise this? Dear Header Unless you have liver damage, stomach ul- cers, or other medical problems that cause you difficulties, there is no reason that you couldn't lake a little bit of wine at nighl. Some people find Ihis very useful in helping them sleep. To the extent that the alco- hol in tho wine acts as a seda- live and relaxes a person's nerves and helps them sleep il is probably beneficial. II I doesn't, unfortunately, do any- thing else that is particularly good for the circulation. In truth the person who uses too much alcohol in any form can even damage the heart muscle, I but this occurs only in indivi- duals who take considerably i more than a glass of wine with their meals or at bedtime. You I could use any of the wines that you find in your super- markets or liquor stores. Most of Hie table and the des- sert wines are approximately 19 per cent alochol by volume.

West opened Ihe seven of hearts, East played the ten South won the Irick with the Jack. Declarer could count eight lop tricks-three Epades, three diamonds, and I wo hearts. The rinlh would have to come from Ihe club suit, EO he led the nine of clubs at Irick two, West pljyed the six and East was in with the king, He returned the deuce, of hearts snd West topped South': six irith the eight and led back the king la dislodge the ace, The deuce of clubi was led Wert hastened lo play the ace, cash the queen of heart declarer's nine and then scored the set- ting trick with the four of hearts. In all, the defense took three hearts and two clubs. Declarer's mistake came at the opening gun when he won Ihe first round of hcarLs. Inasmuch as he must surren- der Ihe lead twice in clubs in W'der to develop his ninth trick, he should attempt to sever the opponents' line of communications. If Weal has both of tlie high clubs and a live-card heart it would be correct to take the first Irick, however, il that were the case, then surely West would have cpenid the bidding as dealer. It Is tale to assume, then that the club honors arc split. Observe the effect of per- mitting East to win Ihe first Irick wilh the ten htirts. He will presumably return the suit and South playe the nine which loses to Wat's quern. The latter cannot re- turn the suit without surren- dering a trick to declarer's jack. Since his only remain- ing entry is the ace of clubs, Ihere is no way for West lo ever cash his long card in hearts. East gels in with the king of clubs, he docs not have a heart to re- turn and South is assured of setting up dummy's club- suit, while limiting the de- fenders to two triclu each io fattls and clubi.
