Does it mean it is likely to rain? A halo can, and often does, 'give a Clue about approaching weather. A halo is formed when high, thin clouds move overhead creating the halo effect. These high clouds are composed of ice crystals which reflect the moon's light. "POP SINGERS" PERFORM AT FREDERICK TOWNE The Jefferson High "Pop Singers", who are rated as of musical groups in the state and entire area, are shown above formed at the Frederick Towne Mall, in Frederick, Md., formance was just one of many which the group has done fraternal organizations in Jefferson and Berkeley counties, Frederick, Md., and Winchester, Va. Bccause a warm front al- ways moves in overhead be- fore ita mass passes over the immediate surface directly be- fore the leading edge, one can often detect its approach, either in daylight or at night. At night the high clouds producing the halo produce a sign of probable rain. And during most of the year the approach of a warm front will mean noticeably warmer veather ahead. So the halo often does mean that rain and warmer weather are on the way. It is one of the sky signs which can be read by careful observers--though it is not an infallible forecaster. Some- times neither rain nor warm weather will follow the pre- ceding night's halo. 0NE MNUTE OIHS QUiZ I. Who won the San Diego Open golf tournament? 2.

When the eyes flutter open at last, when the breath finally comes easy and regu- lar-only then can the fireman relax. And maybe take a little pride and pleaure from the special gift he's been given. It's a learned gift, with a big name: mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. And the gift itself is big, too. Because in many cases it brings people literolly back from death. Whenever you wonder"where Red Cross money goes," think of it. Part of your money goes to train people in all walks of life to do what needs to be done when the chips are really down. Maybe you'll never need to be brought back to life this way. Then again, maybe you will. Isn't Red Cross a good idea? Belong. Photo by Paul Caramuto, V.F.O., Red Cross is onyou.
