Then you hea the weather report, and its says winds of 10 to 15 miles an hour. It's easy for us to be fooled abou the speed of the wind. But the ex act wind speed is important to many people, so there are scien tific ways of measuring the wind. Before we go into this, let's review what winds are. A wind is simply the motion of air over the earth. Whenever air is heated it expands and therefore becomes ighter. When it becomes lighter it rises. As the warm air rises cooler air flows in to take its place. This movement of air is wind! And this also teaches us that all winds whether they are local or >art of the worldwide system 01 ivinds, are caused by changes in emperatures. This is why the major wind systems of the world begin at the Equator, where the sun's heat is greatest. The first instrument for measuring the speed of the wind was nvented in 1667 by an English man called Robert Hooke. The in- trument is called an "anemometer." There are many kinds of an mometers, but the most common ype now used has a number of aluminum cups on a spindle. They are free to turn with the wind, nd the harder the wind blows, he faster the cups will turn. By ounting the number of turns nade by the cups in a given time, tie speed of the wind may be cal- ulated. When men began to fly, H was ecessary to meaure the winds at Igh altitudes. This was done by ending weather baloons up into he atmosphere and watching them with a special kind of tele scope called a "theodolite." Bu this wasn't much good whe clouds hid the balloon. In 1941 weather radar was invented. And now a radar set can observe the balloon oven though clouds anc measure the winds in the upper air! People have also been interest ed in knowing the direction of the wind at all times. As long ago as the year 900 A.D., wind vanes were put on church steeples to show the directin of the wind!

AMERICAN PIETY PRAISED NEW YORK (AP) - Church life n the United States is more vigorous than in Europe, a visiting Swiss clergyman, the Rev. Hans- luedi Weber, said after a month- ong lecture in this country under auspices of the Lutheran Church n America. "I am much impressed by the uroat love for the church which s in North America," he said. 'In Europe, we have become ather cynical about the church. Ve are in a sense old and some- imes almost ready to write off the church as it is now because has very much failed."
