"But the temperature, over a year,
will vary only two or three degrees.
In fact," they continued, "you will
hardly notice it at all. And you won't
need that fur coat you have over your
arm."
The weather cycles occur approxi-
mately every 10 years, the Weather
Men explained. The cycles are caused,
they said it is believed, by slight
Imovements of the earth on its axis,
which in turn have an effect that is
infinitesimal but important on the
Sprevailing winds. This situation, the
basic cause of which is not known,
the Weather Men said, ends up by af-
fecting the total average tempera-
ture. The winters and summers will
be slightly colder," they said, sprin
twill come a little later and fall j
little earlier.1
"And you're sure about not need-
ing this fur coat," Your Summer Re-
porter asked the Weather Men.
"We've already sent ours to th(
cleaners," they assured him.
Your Summer Reporter then at-
tempted to get an interview from the
sociology department on the effect
the "colder" weather would have on
conditions of study in the University,
professors' lectures and the Pres-
idential elections, but the sociologists
would not talk.
"We don't believe a word of it,'
they said.
