"In the past 18 years, only five Christmas days have had any significant snow cover." Elam pointed out that all five cases have occurred in the last seven years. In 1960 and 1963, he said, there was an inch or more of snow cover over most of the state. In 1961 and 1962, the snow was limited chiefly to the south and/or southeast portions. In December, 1966, snow fell over most of the state with the exception of the Blue Grass and the northwest sections. "We have been talking about the chances of having a snow cover of some significance- -an inch or more," Elam said. "If we include snowfalls amounting from a few flakes to less than one inch, the chances of snow are much greater." NEW NIGHT MARSHAL oy In FOR BEAVER DAM R. L.
