  • Description

    ALMOST EVERYWHERE IN EUROPE -- FROM THE NORTH OF SCOTLAND RIGHT DOWN TO THE ISLAND OF SICILY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN -- FELT THE CHILL OF ICE AND SNOW THIS WEEK END.

    ONE EXCEPTION: MALTA, WHICH HAD TEMPERATURES OF FROM 64 DEGREES TO 67 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT (18 TO 20 DEGREES CENTIGRADE AND WHICH WAS ONE OF THE WARMEST SPOTS NORTH OF AFRICA.

    AS THE CAMERAMAN FOUND, SPRING HAD ARRIVED IN MALTA. THE WILD FLOWERS, THE PEACH AND ALMOND TREES, WERE IN BLOOM, THE SPRING BULBS WERE OUT, AND THE YOUNG BOYS WERE SELLING NARCISSI TO MOTORISTS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE WARM, PLEASANT SUNSHINE.

    IN VALETTA HARBOUR, THE SUNSEEKERS WERE BACK IN THEIR SWIMMING COSTUMES AND MEMBERS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN AQUATIC CLUB RESUMED THEIR ACTIVITIES. THE SEA TEMPERATURE WAS 59 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT (15 DEGREES CENTIGRADE).
