NO. 56 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 27, 1954 TWENTY PAGES Electronic Brain To Predict Weather NEW YORK say I and Dr. George Wadsworth, Mass- they will soon be able to tell the achusetts Institute of Technology odds on whether it will rain or snow, be hot or cold but it takes an electronic brain to do it. The new method of weather forecasting was described yester- day in a paper at the 127th national meeting of the American Meteoro- logical Society. So far, the scientists said, they are only processing temperature to four it will hit professors, and Don G. Friedman and Robert G. Miller, graduate students. For the temperature forecasts, figures on barometric pressure in 91 different spots in North Ameri- ca are used in equations worked out by Dr. Wadsworth. _ Only an electronic brain can do the mathematics, and it comes up with 14 numbers that give a full description of the pressure map of the continent. But they soon hope to be able These 14 numbers go back into to say "two to one it will rain tomorrow" or will snow." The technique, said to work any- where in the country, was devel- oped by Dr. Thomas F.

Reuther bitingly criticized most of Eisenhower's 14-point program for revising the Taft-Hartley .la- bor relations law, stating on testi- mony prepared for a Senate Labor Committee hearing that its net ef- fect would be to make the law "even worse than it is."

Dulles declared the Soviet de- mand for a five-power conference including the Peiping government "is primarily a device to attempt to secure for that regime a posi- tion in the councils of the world which it has not earned or had accorded to it by the international community generally includ- ing the United Nations.' he emphatically de dared, "this four-power confer- ence is not the place to decide that matter." Formal Retolution Molotov had submitted to the conference's second session Tues- day a formal resolution calling a five-power meeting in May or June. The United States had al- ready rejected the whole concept. But it also had accepted, along with Britain and France, a Russian sponsored agenda which put the five-power proposal as the first item of business beginning in the third session today. Half an hour after this after- noon's meeting got under way. As- sistant Secretary of State McCardle handed to reporters a text of the Dulles statement which re-emphasized the American posi- Oaly yesterday, William B.

"If we can .solve these two prob, then, and then only, can we stand before the world as capable of assuming otter and heavier tasks_. Then there will be opened up vistas of new hope." Molotov was expected to make his big play for American, British and French recognition of Red China. Western diplomats wondered whether the Soviet foreign min- ister would offer peace settlements in the Far East as a price for such recognition. Dulles, Britain's Foreign Secre- tary Anthony Eden and French Foreign Minister Georges Bidault all said they agreed to the Soviet order of business not because they were willing to meet with Red nhina but because they wanted to get the subject out of the way and Duckle down to work on the prob- lems of German unification and Austrian independence. Plan Rejected Dulles flatly rejected a five- power conference in his opening speech yesterday, saying the United States would not meet with the "Chinese Communist aggres- sors for the purpose of dealing generally with the peace of the world." Molotov promptly countered with a formal resolution calling for such a meeting next May or June "to consider urgent measures to re- ay JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP'iduce tension in international re- should take no action' on the first Under this Proposal, the govern TODAY French Ask 400 Yank Mech anics ment would hold a secret poll to find out if workers want to strike against their employers in labor disputes. Secretary of Labor Mit- chell said yesterday the adminis- tration feels such a vote should precede an actual walkout. Reuther said this recommenda- tion is based on a "misconception Richard Wisdorf, 15, is shown above in a police station in St. Joseph, Mo., where t.e was held for the slaying of his parents and grandmother in Sherburn, Minn.
