Sixteen " -* THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Thursday Evening, September 4,1952. Science Finds Signs World Warming Up Washington—The world is gradually growing warmer and warmer, by all the signs of science. Melting of ice fields, migration of birds and animals, and northward inarch of plant life in this hemisphere gives ample evidence of changing climate, a noted Swedish glaciologist told the 17th Congress of the International Geographical Union in Washington. Dr. Hans W. Ahlmann, Swedish ambassador to Norway and a foremost specialist in glacier science, described the change to the American Geographical Society at the official banquet here for geographers from more than 50 nation. Officers and members of the National Geographic Society were among the hosts for the Congress. Dr. Alilmann said the northern hemisphere in particular has become progressively warmer in the last century. The change has accelerated, since 1SOO. • As yet, science does not know enough to predict .whether this climatic warm-up will continue, he added. Some experts feel the world bay enter a colder period •within the next ten years. To date, however, there have been startling changes in animal and vegetable life throughout this hemisphere, the scientist stated. One of every four bird species of Europe has moved north. Eskimos in Greenland are catching cod for the first time in history, while Icelandic, herring schools are diminishing due to the warm-up of the surface of the sea. Man's most sensitive thermometers of climate are glaciers. Dr. Ahlmann said that almost all glaciers in the northern hemisphere. and some in the southern, are now receding. This -"glacier recession" has been observed in Scandinavia, the Alps, Iceland, and North America. Ice fields on extinct volcanoes in Central Africa have diminished. Similar melting-down has been re-j ported from Asia Minor, South! America, and New, Zealand. The present climatic change, the glaciologist asserted, is the first science has been able to measure, investigate, and possibly explain. Conifer seedlings have been tracked northward in Srfandinavia to timberline where there have been no new seedlings for about 100 years. In Iceland, 37 new species and sub-species of birds have appeared since 1938, and the en- lire landscape of the central plateau of that "land of fire and ice" is changing. Following the international congress. Dr. Ahlmann will fly to Alaska to join an expedition on Taku Glacier near Juneau. The Swedish Ambassador is one of the first pioneers in the study of the physical properties of glacier ice. MEETS OLD BAG SAN ANTONIO tB —Lawrence] [,aRose met his -old friend again. "That old bag has really been around," he sighed. LaRose is civilian inspector in the clothing sales warehouse atj Lackland Air Force Base here. And the "old bag" was the duffel! bag which he carried on an overseas tour with the Air Force in England and Germany between AprU, 1947, and March 1950. He and his "old friend" were separated in 1950. Whether "she" had cavorted overseas again with new friends in the interim cannot be said. LaRosc's full name and serial number are still visible on the bag. The Geneva Convention of 1920 was a revision of the Hague Convention of 1899 dealing with prisoners of war.
