Hurricanes, just like straw hats, come officially Into season. Em- ployes at the U. S. Weather Bureau station at Brownsville arc prepar- ing for the 1047 season which be- gins Monday and ends Nov. 1, Chances are, there won't be. any hurricanes in this area this season, but just in tho event there should bo. the Weather Bureau here will set up a warning system. Included will be special teletype connections with all stations along the coast to Miami, Fla. There will also be special telephones in- stalled, ready for use in warning various Valley points of the approach of a storm Just in case. Jjucl Starm In 19M The Valley has not experienced a bad hurricane since September, 1033. -That was the year when the "eye" or center of the storm pas- sod near this city. Brownsville caught in its full force, which resulted in much loss of property. The last touch of a hurricane in this nroa was on Aug. 25, 1045, when many in the Valley boarded windows and mado other preparations in tho event the 125 m. p. h, velocity storm should strike horo. Only the edge of tho hurricane touched the Valley, bringing high winds and rain. The storm formed In the southwest Gulf of Mexico, moved straight north on the 95th parallel, veered east to Brownsville, swung west northwest past Corpus Ohrlsti, and swept inland to take lives and destroy property at Port Lavaca. Most hurricanes don't like tho Valley area HO well, They prefer Florida to Texas, as was indicated in the only storm reported in the Qulf last Summer. It travelled over Western Cuba ad then headed for tho coast of Florida, but it was almost dissipated by the time it reached the mainland. The storms start in an area just north of tho equator known as "Tho Doldrums." Winds l.horo are very light and move In tho flame direction, from tho surface of the earth up to a height of to feet. Like Water In Sink During an extremely hot day when there is very little or no movement of the extremely light air, thunderstorms build up, and hot air, in ascending into the storms, starts revolving coutor clockwise, whirling Just like water poured down a sink. Since there is no movement of air outside the whirling current to speak of, the storm is not torn up 1942 DE SOTO "5lh Avenue" 4 Door Sedan 1941 CHRYSLER 4 Door Sedan 1942 CHEVROLET 2 Door Sedan 194] CHEVHOLET 2 Door Sedan 1939 CHEVROLET 2 Dr. Sedan.

Mainland AFL organizers sud- denly have awakened to Hawaii's labor market. Dave Beck of Se- attle, sixth vice president of tho AFL teamsters' union, has an- nounced plans to invade the Ha- waiian pineapple fields and try to take over the 7000 CIO pine- apple workers. Big Five-ILWU pineapple ne- gotiations were interrupted sud- denly this week when Jack W. Hall, an ex-merchant seaman and now ILWU regional director, an- nounced that the president of his pineapple affiliate, Robert Moo- kini, was being ousted. Mooklni, one of the few Ha- wailans to roach a top spot in the Island union picture, promptly said he was joining the AFL and would direct thuir campaign to organize pineapple workers. Jack Hall, in the CIO corner, put'in an emergency call for the ILWU international boss, Harry Bridges. Ho wants Bridges to rush here to help solve the crisis. Tho Big Five's Hawaii Employ- er Council, meanwhile, is patient- ly awaiting tho outcome of the inter-union tussle. They continue to blast the unions in radio and newspaper advertisements. Although now highly organized, unionism is still in its infancy in Hawaii. For years labor organi- zations were meaningless. The war brought thousands of main- landers to the Islands and a de- mand by Island laborers for a higher standard of living. When martial was ended, union organization went into high gear The CIO's ILWU jumped out in front by signing sugar workers; 7000 pineapple cannery and field laborers; 3000 lonshore- mon; and another 5000 to workmen in miscellaneous Indus- trios. With the chief industries con- trolled by the CIO, little was loft for the AFL. The OIO's most re- cent accomplishment was to in- vade Hawaiian politics with its Political Action Committee and put union men in the 45 member bicameral legislature. They man- aged to control half of the seats, in the Territorial House of Repre- sentatives and prevent the pas- sage of anti-labor legislation.____ Argentina Approves Bruce As Ambassador BUENOS AIRES, Juno 14 James C.
