Start September 1 and continue the count for a full year. Someone else might start January 1 and run for a year. This makes it a bit difficult sometimes to com- pare figures. In general, I like the Sep- tember to April arrangement because this covers the heating season. Using this system, the 82 year average for St. Johnsbury is 7,623.3 degree days. This is slightly under the normally quoted 8,000 degree days. This is mainly due to the fact that a few degree days would be picked up in May and June. Using this system, the coldest winter in the last 84 years was the winter of 1917-18 with 8.659 degree days bet- ween September and April. This was about 14 percent colder than a normal year. If we look at the number by months, the average Sep- tember has 178.8 dd; October, 560.5 dd; November, 935 dd; December, 1,354 dd; January, 1,499,5 dd; February, 1,312; March, 1,105 dd; and April, 678.9 dd. In the winter of 1917- 18 the numbers went: Sep- tember, 259.5 dd; October, 622 dd; November, 1,060.5 dd; December, 1,739.5; January, 1,779 dd; February, 1,440 dd; March 1,141 dd; and April, 617.5. This gives an indication of how bad things can get. In this light, last winter was not too bad. An average September produces 6 dd. per day; October, 18, November, 30; December, 44; January, 48; February, 47; March, 36; and April, 23. So our sample day at the beginning of the article, with 65 dd, this would have been a colder day than is normal for either January or February. This is a lot of numbers, but hopefully, the numbers offer a base-line for some com- parisons BEST OF PRESS Effective There's nothing like a dishtowel for wiping that contented look off a married man's face. -Busy Bee, Davisville.

A 12.14 % RATE AND TAX SAVINGS -- BNB will currently pay this rate on All-Savers Certificates. This is based on 70% of the prevailing 52-week U.S. Treasury bill rate.

Under law, there is also a penalty for any early withdrawal. There is the advantage of a guaranteed rate and FDIC insurance.
