New theory on colder ivinters SNIPER VICTIM Sister Julita Marie Waiiams, 37, Roman Catholic nun who just returned from mass, was killed when a sniper fired a bullet through her drape-cov- ered bedroom window al her convent in Detroit. PAYING JOBS TORONTO (CP) Toronto board of education approved a plan whereby some vocationa students will spend one day a week at paying jobs. The plan is designed to let youngster' help with the financial situatiot at home without dropping ou of school. Jobs are general! rela.ted to their vocationa school work. WASHINGTON (CP) Colder winters have been the rule for the last 11 years in a vast belt of Eastern Canada and the United States, and a new theory blames a huge sea of warmth in the North Pa- cific. The theory is being put for- ward by Jerome Namias, chief of a body called the ex- tended forecast division of the U.S. national weather service here, as a result of computer- aided research done for the last four years at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at San Diego, Calif. The US. has apparently been hit hardest by the colder temperatures, with almost all of the Eastern Seaboard from Florida to M a i n e a n d hundreds of miles fering colder-than-average winters. But an official in Namias's office here said Monday that the bureau's figures on Can- ada indicate that the cold has ordinarily extended through the lower Great Lakes regions and parts of the St. Lawrence Valley to affect much of southern Ontario and south- western Quebec. The official said the North Atlantic's influence is stronger in Canada's Mari- time provinces, so the effects are apparently not as severe there. "There's not as consistent a relationship in Canada as in the U.S., but it appears to be i there al! the the offi- 1 chl ssid. i The Namias theory centres I on the discovery of an area of i perhaps 2-4 million square miles in the North Pacific i where, for reasons still un- clear, the surface tempera- j turcs during the last decade have ranged from or.e to three 1 degrees fahrenheit above i their normal range. The diflerence, although small, is said to cause radical differences in the intensity o! winter storm in Uie North Pa- cific. These in turn cause a deformation in the jet stream, the constant east-to-west flow of air at high altitudes over the Northern Hemisphere. The average path of the jet stream has been deflected more to the nortli than normal as it crosses the West Coast and then more to the south as it reaches the central and i eastern U.S. The result is to carry more icy arctic air to lire "south, accompanied by more precipitation. Because the weather if only by a few is a greater chance that the precipitation will be snow instead of rain. And the snow has a greater chance of lasting longer, in- creasing the refrigerator ef- fect.
