College anthropologist and -teacher of
Andrews when he was in college
here, who has just returned from

Mr. Andrews is quoted in a San

human beings on the planet for 100,-

be followed by a late spring.
Primarily the predictions are based
upon a study of ocean surface tem

amount r.f the sun's heat reaching the
earth. This solar radiation for more
titan three years das been below nor- 1
mal. The present winter situation, j
he says, indicates that the world is
