By Chet Ringheiser Manchester a the president of weather engineering corp of America with administrative offices Here denies that he and his company a make though operations by the company s Canadian organization have been seeding Clouds and increasing precipitation Over Large areas of the Canadian wilderness Bernard a. Power says the company actually does no to make rain it merely takes advantage of existing Cloud formations seeds them with Small quantities of Silver iodide and the rain decides to fall itself. The new company is now headquartered in the potentials inc. Building Here and George b. Breen of potentials inc., a local real estate Agency is vice president of the new concern. Thomas w. Martin also of potentials is on the Board of directors along with author Pearl s. Buck. There is erne vacancy on the Board which Power said will be filled shortly. Cloud seeders and weather makers have won new prestige As recent scientific papers have shown that Cloud seeding really works. In the past weather makers have been looked upon with the same suspicion As Witch doctors and rain dancers. But Power and his Canadian operation have shown through a 10-year operation Over a Section of the Canadian wilderness above Ontario that seeding of Clouds on a continuous basis could increase annual precipitation As much As 29.5 inches. Power said the company will eventually move its Vermont base to an area which has an Airport that can handle the dc-3 air planes used to seed Clouds. Most of the air and ground equipment is leased. Power said dc3s Are used because they can be modified to carry extra fuel and can be kept aloft for to or More hours during continuous seeding operations. The seeding itself is done by spraying a very Small Quantity of Silver iodide in the form of an aerosol into proper Cloud formations. The water in the Cloud concentrates around the chemical forms a Snowflake and becomes heavy enough to fall either As Snow or rain depending on the season. The selection of proper Cloud formations is done by careful study of local and world wide w Eather data collected by the fir in from wire services and from a in weather company Bernard a. Power right and George b. Breen Are president and vice president of weather engineering corporation of America which has established administrative Headquarters in the potentials inc. Building at Manchester Center. Power is president of a Canadian corporation which has been doing Cloud seeding work in the Canadian provinces for commercial and government interests since 1954.

The satellite flies 750 Miles up makes three passes a Day and shows an Earth area of some four million Miles in each picture. The company Hopes to contract its services to government groups in new England and eventually to extend operations on a world wide basis. Power confesses that Man As yet knows Little about Why rain Falls but envisions on a greater and greater cooperative control with Mother nature in making the weather to some extent become the servant of Man rather than his sometime enemy. As for the future Power speculates that it is a not an impossibility that weather around the planets might somehow be changed by the chemical intercession of Man into a liveable if not a completely Earth like atmosphere.
