The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta tt-THlUTMMIDOI HWULD-FrMey, JMNMry it, 1t74 Jupiter's red spot continuing puzzlement By DAVID F. SALISBURY Christian Science Monitor AMES RESEARCH CENTER, Calif. Just what is Jupiter's red spot? Astronomers have been asking themselves this ques- tion for 200 years. Now, after Pioneer 10, they have at least had a better look at it. Puzzlement about the red spot comes from the fact that it has existed for 200, perhaps 300 years. On a world like earth, that would not be surprising. But the current picture describes Jupiter as made up almost entirely of quids and gases that continually flow and change On such a world how could a permanent feature exist? One of the oldest ideas still around holds that the red spot is caused by fluids swirling around some solid object floating beneath the surface As this object rises and sinks it causes the spot to oscillate up and down. But what kind of solid could form under jovian conditions? In order to hang together with the tremendous forces that are known to exist, this hypothetical solid must have incredible strength. Another current idea is that the spot is a giant vortex, surrounding a stagnant column of Jovian atmosphere. Physical scientists know that when a fluid flows over a flat plane with a small dip, or depression, such a vortex and standing column are formed. They assume that something similar could happen on Jup- iter. But this would mean that the core of Jupiter is solid and supports a major irregularity. This scientists have difficulty accepting for a number of reasons. Yet they are faced by the mute fact that the red spot has persisted, and have been The red spot Seen from Pioneer 10 forced merely to measure its wandering to and fro across Jupiter's surface. Sometimes the spot's red color fades, as if a thin covering of frozen ammonia clouds obscure it. The spot oscillates back and forth every 90 days, unexplainably. Once it was observed spitting out little spots of red, and occasionally a spot moves toward it, sticks to its side, and is absorbed. By the motion of these clinging spots, astronomers have determined that the red spot is spinning and that the white zone in which it sits is flowing circularly around it. Pioneer 10 has sent back images of the spot from approximately miles away, as opposed to earth telescopes that view it from over 500 million miles. The resolution of the Pioneer pictures when fully processed should be four to five times better than any previously taken. Yet even from this close the mystery of the red spot will not be solved, for its origin is determined by conditions deep in the interior. Only future exploration can begin to unravel the mystery of Jupiter's red spot. Woman may have bounced millions in bad cheques LOS ANGELES (Reuter) Police have disclosed they are searching for a middle-aged woman accoun- tant who allegedly wrote about million in worthless cheques over a 10-month period last year. Police said Ann Ohlschlager, a 54-year-old ac- countant, vanished last Oc- tober after spending 10 months running a hosiery dis- tributorship which she oper- ated mostly on non-existent funds she kept floating from one bank account in a United California Bank (UCB) branch here and another at a National Bank of Georgia branch in Atlanta "It took a while for the che- ques to clear, so for months no one caught on as a cheque from UCB inflated the balance in Atlanta while a cheque from Atlanta inflated the balance in Los police investigator James Heisdorf said. Generally, the cheques were written in large denomina- WHO'S LOOKING AFTER YOUR CHILDREN TODAY?

The scheme collapsed last October when the Atlanta bank refused to honor a 000 cheque drawn on UCB. At that time the balance in the UCB account was a deficit of Police said UCB may be stuck for the They said that as far as could be determined, the Atlanta bank emerged without any loss. Police said Mrs. Ohlschlager disappeared Oct. 24 after posting a "going out of business" sign on her office door. They have obtained a warrant for her arrest on seven counts of forgery and one count of grand theft. The woman had been in and out of jail since 1955 on bad- cheque cases, police said. Flood aid HELENA, Mont. (AP) Gov. Thomas Judge has asked President Nixon for an initial allocation of million in flood disaster assistance for a six-county area of northwestern Montana. Judge also requested additional funds when damage figures are completed. High blood pressure underrated MONTREAL (CP) Imagine a garden hose with its water faucet open but nozzle closed. If it sits like that long enough, its seams will rupture and it will sprink leaks. About two million adult Canadians have arteries and blood vessels that are pressurized like the garden hose, and many will die prematurely because of ig- norance and indifference about it, Dr. Donald S. Silverberg of Edmonton said Thursday at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons annual meeting. The condition is called hypertension more com- monly known as high- blood most of the public thinks is not much more serious than the common cold, said Dr. Silver- berg, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Alberta. But the condition is so critical that a 35-year-old man with diastolic blood pressure (measured when heart muscle releases during its pump phase) over 100 can expect to live 24 more years, he said. By comparison, a 35-year- old with a diastolic blood pressure of 80 could be expected to live to the age of 76. Persons with high-blood pressure probably will die of hemorrhages, heart disease, heart attacks and kidney failures, he said. An estimated 26 per cent of deaths are associated with problems of nigh-blood pres- sure. The situation is alarming because about 75 per cent of people suffering from the dis- ease either don't know they have it, are aware they have it but seek no medical aid, or are being poorly treated for it, he said. GRANT FOR TESTS Armed with a Local In- itiatives Project grant, Dr. Silverberg organized a health team last year in Edmonton to go into shopping centres, gov- ernment and business offices to take blood-pressure readings among the public. Of the city residents who have been checked to date, 12.1 per cent had high- blood pressure, he said. Of this group, about 25 per cent had normal blood pressure on treatment while another 25 per cent on treatment still had high-blood pressure. The remainder either were unaware of their condition, or were aware but had never taken treatment or had stopped taking treatment. The health team also did a survey of high-school students and found that one per cent had diastolic readings over 100 or systolic readings (measured on the pump stroke of the heart) of more than 150. The parents of many of these hypertensive youngsters had died at relatively early ages, suggesting that the condition is hereditary, said Dr. Silverberg. The actual cause is not known. Overweight persons are more likely to have high blood pressure, but it (obesity) has not been established as a cause of the condition. Some hypertensive people can help their condition by losing weight, becoming more active, reducing salt intake and easing stresses, he said. SPECIAL NOTICE For the benefit of the general public tne Council of the City of Lethbridge will hold a Public Hearing in connection with the future electric power supply for the City. A study of the future supply was completed by the firm of CH2M Hill of Bellevue, Washington. A copy of their report is available for perusal in the City Clerk's office during regular office hours. Copies of a short summary of the report as prepared by the consultants is also avialable upon request. The hearing will be held on Monday, Feb- ruary 18 at p.m. in the Yates Memorial Centre. Any person who may wish to make representa- tion concerning this matter shall first file a written submission with the City Clerk not later than P.M., Wednesday, February 13.
