Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFEKlSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY-AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 39 PAGE ONE Lester Mundy is district Boy Scout executive at Snyder and as a hobby he does Indian dances. He so performed at Snyder's big civic celebration earlier in July. He did a solo dance, an "ea- gle the idea of which is that the Indian might so get the eagle to deliver a message to the rain gods. And guess what happened when Mundy danced the rain dance. Yes, that's right. He had barely finished when started to rain! Now a fellow who can per- form thusiy is a handy fellow to have around in West Texas. When Mundy got back this week from Scout camp duty he was asked to explain his rain-mak- ing demonstration. No, he is not a Redskin. (He's from Spearman by way of West Texas State and has been a pro- fessional Scout worker his five years since graduation, first at Port Arthur and for two years at Snyder.) Yes, he has done the rain dance many times before. No, it never had such precise and prompt results. Can he conjure up a rain? Being a Scout executive and, therefore, even more truthful than is the ordinary fellow, Mundy admitted: "Before I did a dance, I looked at the sky. It was hot and sul- try and there was that cloud...." Things we wouldn't know if we didn't open the mimeo- graphed mail before tossing it into the wastebasket: 1. Bowling buffs traveling to France these, days won't have to give up bowling for the trip. The Ftehch Government Tour- ist Office sends an official an- nouncement which says, happi- VLe Bowling Club has set up' an ultra-modern 12-alley bowling center in the Jardin d' Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne" and, furthermore, modern new "bowling centers can be found in Biarritz, Lyon and Fontcnay-sous-Bois." Travel is so broadening. And, 2. The Department of Defense has ordered all mili- tary aircraft to be identified in accordance with a uniform des- ignation system. In explanation, we are told by Aerospace Industries Association that "the uniform designation will consist of a basic mission-type symbol (F for fighters, B for bombers, etc.) preceded by a modified mission symbol (R for recon- naissance, W for and followed by a design number to identify the basic model and by a scries symbol to identify a significant change in the basic model. For example, the ver- sion of the F-110 which has been modified to give it a recon- naissance capability would be- come the RF-4." Is that clear now? In mail more nearly down the average alley there comes from Dr. J. 'W. Young of Sweetwater a notation of a possible reason for Abilene's troubles with rain- water. "In 1909 I went to Alexander Hospital, Abilene (as a surgical Dr. Young recalls. "It rained more than I had ever seen at one time. After the operation I was carried to the train in a horse-drawn ambu- lance. The water was over the ties. the doctor concludes, remembering how it once was, "the railroad has since raised the tracks. "But, the city has never raised the city." Weather Causes Shot Delay HONOLULU (AP) Unfavora- ble weather caused postponement again Tuesday night of the United for a second; high- altitude nuclear test. The shot was delayed at least another 24 hours. Scientists 'had postponed the Johnston Island shot 10 times Monday night before canceling it for the night due to adverse wealher. Skies cleared Tuesday morning but by late afternoon a new cloud yank moved into the area at a jeight of about feet. The Weather Bureau said the clouds were like those of last night. The blast, one of the last in the current Pacific test series, now is scheduled to come between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m. Thursday. A nuclear device with a poten- :ial explosive force equal to be- ween and one million tons of TNT will be carried aloft by a Thor missile to a height of 30 to 40 miles before it is detonated; The shot, expected to be visible n Hawaii, is nonetheless expected to be far less spectacular than he blinding flash that lit up the Pacific with a rainbow of colors July 8.
