U.S. Still Tied to British Ruler INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The U.S. threw off British rule nearly 200 years ago, but still remains tied to the English ruler, The standard of measurement in this country is the English originated foot despite the foot having been given the boot by other major industrialized nation, including Great Britain. Great Britain, Canada and Australia are in the process of adopting the meter as their standard of length. During the transition period, weather reports in those nations are in both English and metric units. Before the adoption of the decimal pound, many Americans snickered at the British for conducting monetary busines in pounds, shillings and pence although U.S. weights and distances were measured in analagous feet, inches, pounds and ounces. Faced with a metric world, the National Weather Service (NWS) has announced it will provide foreign temperatures in degrees Celsius ins tead of Fahrenheit. The Centigrade thermometer is no more, says the NWS. The scale that measures 100 degrees between the boiling and freezing points of water is now known in the U.S. as the Celsius thermometer -- as it is in the rest of the world. The system was invent; ed in 1742 by Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. The NWS said Celsius temperatures would be more meaningful to foreign visi- · tors. One Indianapolis radio station already routinely reports local temperatures in degrees Celsius. * * * THE KEY to using the Celsius thermometer is to consider 20 degrees pleasant, 10 degrees chilly and 30 degrees warm, rather than going through the mental gymnastics necessary to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit. Preparing for the day when Congress ends the country's position as the last bastion of the English system of weights and measures, the NWS has planned a tentative program for reporting weather in metric units. Besides reporting temperature in degrees Celsfcs, the service will report rain in millimeters, visibility in kilometers, pressure in millibars, river and wave heights in meters and wind in kilometers per hour. A Weather Service spokesman said the British advised their former colonists in America to make the change in one year. ,. The spokesman said that the British experience of trying to make a gradual change over five years resulted in passive refusal of the public-; to think in meters instead of feet. Canada and Australia are in a one-year changeover period, the spokesman said. City National Bank Of Charleston 3601 MacCorkle Ave., S.E. Telephone 925-6611 OFFICERS Wayne A.
