" N ASIUNGTO.V. ( AP ) The
earth is not shaking -: hy more
than it useJ to, but ; people are
noticing it more. ; . .
, This 4s the answer of Director
Tondarf. of the Georgetown Uni
r rrity olwervatory to the - flood
of inquiries reaching j him as to
whether 'earthquake are increas
ing in number and frequency. ".
Because 'of the precision of in
struments which: record tremors,
the public is informed constantly
through their newspapers of dis
turbances of the? earth's crust in
all parts of the globe. The . lay
belief that the shocks; are becom
ing close together is a result of
this publicity. -.' I
"The layman, unofficially inter
ested in the restlessness of the
earth's crust, should3 know the
truth," says Dr. Tondorf.- "The
problem of computing earthquake
frequency was first scientifically
undertaken by Count de. Montes
sus de Ballore, one-time director
of the seism oloslcal observatory
o? i .o government in ".Chili, In
1900. ater a close: analysis of the
then available earthquake rec
ords, 131,292 in number, he plac
ed the annual average earthquake
occurrence at 3,830. equivalent to
an earth shock every ; two hours
tnd twenty-seven minutes. .
Four years afterward. Dr. Au
gust Sieberg. of the University of
Jena, questioned, the' estimate as
too low. "A recalculation made by
him in 1923 lifted the. annual av
erage frequency to 9.00. or about
one very hour. Five.'th6usand of
these quakes he Indicated as being
felt sensibly on some part" of the
earth's surface in-varying intensi
ties. Violent quakes, classified by
others as word-shaking, occur at
intervals of every three and one
half days, either on the continents
or on , the continents or om the
ocean's bottom. Those on land,
However, average ; every, fifth day.
VCalifornia, the least Immune
of all United States territory, is
visited by a shock on an average
of 81 times annually. - The liabil
ity of one of these shocks being
