B. COLTON (Associated Press Science Writer) WASHINGTON CT)--It's simple enougli to predict January's weather and all of 1934's, too, if Dr. Charles G. Abbott's new theory that weather repeats itself every 23 years holds good. According to it, 1934 should be a warm, dry yeav for most of the United States except the west coast. Cycle Is 23 Years. Dr. Abbott, head of the Smithsonian Institution has found evidence that weather conditions in various sections are repeated every 23 years, apparently controlled by magnetic changes on the sun, which also move in a 23 year cycle, double the length of the sunspot cycle of slightly over 11 years. Weather bureau records of temperature and rainfall for 1911, therefore, give at least a hint of what may be expected next year on the basis of Dr. Abbot's theory, although neither he nor the weather bureau is making official forecasts. The 1911 records show that temperatures from one half to two degrees above normal may be expected in all but the far west, where weather cooler than normal by an equal amount should prevaili Thirteen Cities Studied. They also show that drier than normal weather will prevail except in the Ohio valley and the middle section of the west coast, with anywhere from a fraction of an inch to nearly 12 inches less rain than the average. . The data on which this unofficial forecast is based was obtained from 1911 records pertaining to 13 cities over the United States. The figures show that the winter of 1934, after Jan. 1, may be dry in the south, northwest, Ohio valley, and along the east coast but with more than normal rain or snqw in the Rotky mountains, southwest, Here's a Hint of Next January--From 23 Years Ago If Dr. Charles G. Abbot of Smithsonian Institution is correct in his theory that weather repeats itself every 23 years, January, 1934, should be like January, 1011, and the areas of cold and relative warmth, wetness and dryness divided approximately «s indicated o n the map. midwest and far west. The winter should l)e unusually cold in the northwest, Rockies and west const but wanner than normal in other sections. The 1911 figures indicate a warmer than average spring in all sections except the west coast, which will be a little cooler than normal, and dry spring weather everywhere, with rain farthest below normal in the Ohio valley and southwest. A line O'pipe Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will By T. PIPE Doctor Santa Claus. It was only two days until Christmas and old Santa away up in the northland was ready for it. The toys and playthings and presents, of all kinds and description, were packed away in his sleigh. -The harness of the reindeers had been oiled with lightningola so they could go like lightning and the sleigh runners had seen greased with alipalonga, the fastest grease in the whole world. Yes, everything was all set for the Dig day or rather for the big night, because Santa's biggest day was all night work. . And yet Santa was not happy. Instead he was very much worried. For Prancer, one of his best reindeers, was a very sick animal. He couldn't eat his hay and he couldn't eat his oats. He was so sick he couldn't eat his carrots and when a reindeer won't eat his carrots he ia a sick reindeer, indeed. Santa didn't know what to do. There were no doctors away up there in the lorth and even if there had been it ,3 doubtful if they would have known how to doctor a sick reindeer. So Santa just walked around and Best Wishes to All!

HARRY ZEBKER 121 South Federal worried and worried and Prancer got sicker and sicker and Christmas got closer and closer. And then ill at once Santa spied something that made him open his eyes. And vhat do you suppose it was? It vaa a box of chocolate candy. Or ·ather, what had been a box of ihocolate candy, because now it was ust about empty. "Ah ha, ah ha," aid Santa, "a box of chocolates bout gone and a sick reindeer. Does two and two make four or oes it? And if so I know some- iiing to do about it. And not only hat," he continued, "but I am going o do it right now." Singing this little song: ft'hen deers are sick, So I've heard tell, ''here's just one thing That makes them well. He hurried into the house -and oon returned carrying a big, black xttle. Into the stable he went and ver to where poor Prancer was landing, growing sicker and sicker very minute. Holding Prancer's ead high in the air, he stuck the ottle in the sick deer's mouth. Drink," he commanded, "drink and get well. Drink it all to the last rop." Prancer was too sick to offer any esistance and although he made a :errible face and uttered several aw- 'ui groans, he drank the contents of the bottle, every bit of it, to the ast drop. The next morning Old Santa got up early and hurried to the stable. And. there was Prancer perfectly all right once more. He had eaten hia hay and his oats and he began begging for carrots as soon as he leard Santa coming. "Ab, ha," said Santa us he looked at Prancer. "I thought that would cure you. Castor oil has never yet failed to cure a sick reindeer who has eaten too much candy. Or a child either, lor that matter." And lie went back to the house singing ;his little song: When reindeer or, A child are sick, Some castor oil, Will cure them quick.
