I6-A- AVALANCHfc.JUUKNAl~i-i iciay Livening, April 4, IV/b Acutely Energy-Conscious Citizens Interested In Measuring Of 'Clos' CLEVELAND CJPI) — Kner- gy consciousness and bikinis have something in common — the "clo." A clo is a unit for measuring Ihc insulnting value of cloUiing. One clo equals tlie value of the ordinary men's business suit ensemble, circa 1911, when the unit was devised. But today's suit, according to Dr. William Bryan Jr., associate professor of heat and power engineering at Case Western Reserve University, is lighter. Most people wear about O.S clo, which would be comfortable at about 7n degrees of internal heat production. M<*a holism should be- balanced by (he rale of heat MONKYCHANC5KRS HOLLYWOOD (UPI> — Ross Huntor Productions, in association with Paramount Television, has acquired Ihc rights to Arthur llailcy's new novel, "The Moneychangers," and will film it either as a three-hour or six-hour movie for NRC-TV. loss to the environment, he says. "The best way to achieve this is to dress for the coolest temperatures expected," Bryan says. "That can be clone with a scientific degree o f accuracy by knowing the insulating value of wearing apparel." To gel an effective total clo value, or reasonable facsimile thereof, add the total value of all the items you arc wearing and then: —For men: Clothing insulation equals 0.75 times the sum of clos plus 0.10. —For women: Clothing; insulation equals 0.8 times the sum of clos plus 0.0"). Bryan provides a pair of helpful examples; A man might wear low shoes (.04), warm .socks (.04), briefs (.05), sleeveless undershirt (.08), long sleeve woven shirt (.29). warm trousers (.32), warm vest (.30) an warm sportjackel (.49). The sum is l.fil. The clothing insulation would be .75 times 1.61 plus .10. which equals 1.31. A woman might wear a \varm dress (.63), sweater {.37), heavy panty-hose (.25), bra and panties (.0*1), slip (.19) a nd shoes {.Oil). The sum is 1.51 clo. The clothing insulation would be .SO times 1.51 plus .05, which equals 1.2(> clo. "A person seated and reading would be comfortable in those outfits at temperatures of 70 to 72 degrees," Bryan says. "When the temperature lowered lo between 65 and 68 degrees, that same person would be comfortable only if he were a liitlc more active — perhaps typing or doing office work." So if your wife or girl friend catches you eyeing some bikini- clad beauty this summer at the beach, tell them you're just being energy conscious because a bikini scores exactly .04 clo. And that, you can tell her is better than no do at all. ' Now in Chrome C r o s s ® s o f t t i p p e n s The new soft tip pens from Cross now in chrome.
