m POTOMAC FARMS DEL MONTE / /, I oz can 2 FRIENDLY HOME- OWNED CRISP- FRESH m ~,bag 59' A number of Jefferson County Repttblicans, including some from the Shepherd College GOP Club, journeyed to Martinsburg Mon- td~eY afternoon to participate in opening of Governor Moore's Regional office in Martinsburg and also to ~lk wl`th him about a number of projects of vital in- terest to all citizens of the county. The new ~fice is located in the Oates Building on West King street, and is being staffed on a full4ime basis, with ,the Governor himself expected to be in the office a,t ~east one day a month to meet a~d talk over problems ~f ~he Eastern section of West Virginia with the people concerned. ~Members of the County Repub- lican Executive Committee who were present were Mrs. Robert P.

But gamblers among white have a white Christmas, maybe Christmas haters will be happy you'd better spend the Yule sea- son at International Falls, Minn. Judging by past records, says the Environmental Science Serv- ices Administration (ESSA), the probability that there will be an inch or more of snow on the ground at the International Falls !weather station is 100 per cent. I On the other hand, if you don't believe the old saying, 'green Christmas, fat grave yard", and hate the thought of snow on Dec. 25, you'd be happier in Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, and Mississippi. ESSA records for major cities in those states show none with a white Christmas probability greater than zero per cenL Guessing whether there wilt or won't be snow at any one place is, of course, something of a gem to note that Las Vegas is the only one of five .Nevada weather stat- ions mentioned by ESSA with a zero per cent snow probability for Dec. 25. ESSA dug deep into its arch- ives to compile statistics on the chances for a white Christmas at i weather stations in or near 269 U. S. cities. It emphasized that "these are climatological probab- ilities, not forecasts." If the probability is 70 per cent, for example, it means that usually there would be snow on the ground 7 years out of 10. It does not necessarily mean a white Christmas this year. Moreover, the figures are for weather stat- ions which sometimes are distant from the cities they serve. You might think Alaska, our northernmost state, would be the i whitest come Christmas. But Min nesota is snowier, as far as the ESSA statistics go. The whRe Christmas pro'babili. ties for Dec. 25 in Minnesota range from 53 per cent at St. Cloud to 100 per cent at inter- national Falls. ESSA lists none for the state~ under 50 per cent. The Alaska range is from 23 per cent at Annette to 95 at Bar- ter Island. There are four Alaska weather stations with probabili- ties under 50 per cent. California came close to an-all- zero probability record equal to Florida's. Among 14 California stations listed, only one, Bishop, showed a white Christmas chance greater than zero. The probability of an inch or more of snow at Bishop on Dec. 25, 1969, according to ESSA, is four per cent. A list of cities 'with the per cent chance includes: Ohio: Akron - Canton 43, Cincin cinnati 17, Cleveland 30, Colum- bus 30, Dayton 30,-Mansfield 60, Sandusky 43, Toledo 37, Youngs- town 40. , .
