rs,, ALTON EVENINQ TELEGRAPH Since 1900 WASH1MCJTON, (By SclflWf ••HNfflMM-fttr «*««• of W* toUtineflttl UftRH States has frown warmw Unee tht twgln* ning of flti 20th wntury • Weather Bureau mtteorologttt confirmed here. Dr. H. ft Landsberg com* pared the monthly waaonal and tnnual temperature means at 48 location! for the two 26-year periods from 1906 to 1WO and 1931 to 1955. HU preliminary analysis Is based on temperature records from rural stations, since those from cities are not as reliable for this purpose due to the heat they generate. The temperatures In most places show "significant rises," Dr. Landsberg reported In the current Journal of Geophysical Research (May) here. Annual rises Of one and a half degrees Fahrenheit were found over the Great Lakes region and In the Rocky Mountain states. The average of 48 stations showed an annual rise of eight- tenths of a degree between the two time Intervals. Forty of the 48 stations showed an increase in temperature, which Dr. Landsberg calls "overwhelming evidence of a tendency toward warming." When the values of annual temperature change are averaged by zones, Dr. Landsberg found that the higher latitudes have the larger change. This agrees with previous findings In other regions of the Northern Hemisphere that HIP climactic warming has been most pronounced-in the higher latitudes. Dr. Landsberg also compared precipitation totals from the 48 stations for the two 25-year periods. For the most part, he found, precipitation changes are probably not significant. However, there was a tendency toward lower totals over the Rocky Mountain states, parts of the Great Plains and in an area west of the Appalachian Mountains. On the basis of present knowledge, Dr. Landsberg concluded, there is no indication of a major trend in the rainfall patterns of the contiguous 48 states. Mars, Venus Surveys Seen In 10 Years By SCIENCE SERVICE "DALLAS, Tex.,—Space craft with eight men aboard could make short survey flights to Mars and Venus by 1970 or 1971, Krafft Ehricke, program director for Convair Astronautics in San Diego, Calif., said here today (June 8). The flights depend on the U. S. developing nuclear heat exchanger engines by 1965 and using them for trips to the moon from 1965 to 1970, Mr. Ehricke said. i He outlined a Venus night plan in which men would travel 295 days, survey from their ship for 24 days and return In 223 days. Travel time to Mars would be less; 138 dayb to reach the planet and 175 days to return, he told the semiannual meeting and aviation conference of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Mr. Ehricke predicted that the first surveyors would not land on the planets unless they had political reasons to do so. A landing, he said, would take extra personnel and would require rockets with double the payload capacity of those needed for surveys. Artificial Brain Predicted Others in a predicting mood saw the possibility, far in the, future, of programing an electronic computer to simulate a human brain. Ralph W. Stacy and Norman A. Coulter Jr., associate and assistant professors respectively at Ohio State University, reported here that electrical impulses have recently been used to simulate the behavior of artery pulses, They said a doctor can feed data on a patient's arterial system into a computer and compare it with the normal artery data already fed the electronic machine. The doctor thui , learns If his patient's system is. normal "The ultimate step In the process of simulation would be the design of an artificial brain." The professors said this was far beyond present knowledge but not really far fetched: "We already have artificial organs which can take over the function of one port of the brain, the respiratory center. Can we someday, when we understand the brain better, achieve what would amount to artificial metempsychosis — a tr«jD#l«t of human personality tap • natural te as artificial PAPIOA 4 Os. ft** sr FORSCS BARBECUE SAUCE 2*0i.
