It indicated Wednesday that more stringent restrictions have been issued on how close jet .'•tarter carts can be placed to ammunition and aircraft. "Indications are that the exhaust from the cart may have caused the overheating and explosion of a Zuni rocket attached to the wing of an airplane," the Navy said. "The ini- H;.'l explosion apparently caused a fire and subsequent bomb and rocket explosions on airplanes parked nearby." Explosions and flame swept areas of the giant carrier Jan. 14, killing 27 men and injuring 83 others while it was at sea so ithwest of Hawaii. The Navy disclosed repairs will cost $6.4 ..'lillion. but estimated the flattop will return to duly in less tha three months.

Since about 1950, a cooling trend has made winters a bit nurses available. There will be harsher and summers slightly milder in both North America and ; an intensive in-service training Europe. This reverses a warming trend that took place during — the first half of the 20th century, says the National Geographic Society. Paradoxically, the experts suspect that man-created pollution is responsible for both trends. The wanning may have been caused by carbon dioxide, produced by burning coal and oil. The cooiing may be due to other forms of pollution— dust and smoke and other particles man is spewing into the air. One scientist with the Environmental Science Services Administration estimates that the carbon dioxide naturally piesent in the atmosphere keeps the world about 20 degrees warmer than it would be if the gas were totally absent. A 10 per cent increase in the amount of carbon dioxide, which is an efficient absorber of heat could raise temperatures in the lower atmosphere by one- half a degree Fahrenheit. This is just above what the worldwide temperature increase has been since 1900. It doesn 't sound like much, but it was enough to push the crop line on the Canadian prairies 50 to 100 miles farther north. On the other hand, dust and smoke reflect some of the sun's heat back into space. We are currently manufacturing, warn the climatologists, a nebulous veil of dust that is virtually encircling the world. Mankind evidently has two alternatives before it. Either we pour more carbon dioxide into the air to counteract the effects of the dust, and then more dust to counteract the effects of the car-1 bon dioxide, or we stop polluting the atmosphere entirely. i It is not difficult to guess what it will have to be. There is no advantage in being comfortably warm if you can 't breathe. i Sincerely yours.
