Continuing Cool
Chill wintei winds swept into
Lancaster County early this
week, but spared the Garden Spot
from mountains of snow that
tangled traffic in other sections
of the nation
Unofficially, the coldest spot
was 8 above at 7 a m Tuesday
at the Lititz Water Woiks, at the
Lancaster City Water Works it
was 11, and Elizabethtown re
ported an unofficial 12 degrees-
Coupled with a bone chilling
wind, the weather gave test to
the topcoat, the anti-freeze,
man’s disposition-
New Records Set
Temperatures plummeted from
above freezing to marks much,
lower than normal In 24 hours
the drop was as much as 21 de
grees, from a high Monday of 32-
Local records went into obscur
ity as new ones were set- This
was the coldest November weath
er in 17 years In 1938 the Lan
caster City -Water Woiks record

But in 1932 it hit 8 above, in
1936 5 above and in 1929 the low
was 7 above-
icy winds were general through
three-quarters of the nation, and
even Florida was nipped l by the
wintry Waste
But the local weatherman,
Bernard N- White, departed this
week on a two-week vacation, go
ing to Milwaukee, Wis-, where his
family lives and where he was
once stationed
Snow Deep in Buffalo
In Lancaster six weeks, he is
still awaiting the arrival of neces
sary weather recording and re
porting equipment- No doubt,
the cool blasls-along Lake Michi

Mr- White than the Lancaster
