Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 19, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for VOL M MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY APRIL 19 1960 7c Copy Paper Consists of Two Scclionsscclion OCB AMoelatcd Preit and United Prcii International Full Wirei ia 1 New tools m in weather I forecasts WILLIAM B DICKINSON Jr GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Orbiting of earths first weather satellite gave man a spectacular new instrument to aid in weather forecasting As Tiros whizzes around the world 450 miles out in space its two television cameras have been taking pictures of clouds over the earth and sending them back to ground stations in Ha waii and New Jersey When this satellite is joined by more ad vanced orbiting companions knowledge of weathermaking forces will be greatly expanded Meteorologists then presum ably will be able to score much better marks in weather fore casting They may even find out how to modify the weather up to a point AN IMPROVEMENT in long range weather forecasting which is considerably more dif ficult than the far from per f e c t daytoday forecasting would yield economic savings of millions of dollars to agricul ture commerce and industry Effective rainmaking projects in areas now arid also would bring large benefits Studies conducted in 1957 and 1958 as a part of the International Geo physical Year added greatly to the information needed for 3ongr a n g e forecasting and weather control However all the knowledge required to turn weather prediction into an exact science has not yet been found Development of rockets and satellites has given meteorolo gists new tools to probe the mysteries of weather forces Government scientists are set ting up a network of weather rocket stations to check atmos pheric conditions up to 40 miles above the as high as weather balloons can reach Daily rocket firings are planned throughout the year The con templated system of weather satellites has still greater poten tialities THE FIRST concerted re search program in longrange forecasting was instituted in the 1930s Fiveday forecasts started coming from the Weather Bureau in 1940 and 30 day forecasts in 1946 The five d a y forecasts predict the weather for each of the five suc ceeding days The 30day forecasts are lim ited to predictions of average temperatures in terms of above or below normal and to pre dictions of precipitation de scribed as light moderate or heavy But the margin of er ror is high Last January for example the Weather Bureau predicted abovenormal tem peratures for 30 days in Florida a week before the state was plunged into a prolonged cold spell A 30day hurricane forecast begun in 1957 was discontinued the next year under a barrage of complaints from Florida tourist interests Sen Spessard L Holland DFIa excoriated the Weather Bureau for pre dicting 45 possible hurricanes of which not one materialized METEOROLOGISTS have had almost no success in try ing to predict tornadoes more than 24 hours in advance How ever Francis W Reichelderfer chief of the Weather Bureau has said that the weather satel lies may enable early detection of hurricanes spawned any where over vast oceanic areas and lead also to solution of the tornado observation problem in tornado alley of the Unitec Stales Proficiency In extended fore casting remains a longrange aim of m e t e o rologists but Weather Bureau emphasis at present appears to be on re finement of the 24hour and 48 hour forecasts New electronic computer systems new auto matic observation stations and a new radar stormwarning net work are counted on to bring about more accurate predictions for the short term Weather modification projects in the United States have been confined so far to local efforts to induce rain by cloud seeding and to efforts to break up or change the direction of hurri canes by similar methods Rain making ventures have had only limited or inconclusive results and hurricanes have been stub bprnly resistant to human tam pering Violence grows in South Korea y Army called in AP Pliotolnx LOVE AND MARRIAGE The beauty of
