JPAOR TEN (ARKJ COURIER NEWS ' IN MCflSll Norwegians : Are First To Use Mass Analysis Technique SAN FRANCISCO, April 2C (UP) —Charles L. Mitchell, senior forecaster of the U. S. Weather Bureau,, gives the Norwegians credit for haying originated the system of mass analysis In making weather forecasts that arc now used in the United Stales. "While there has been something of n revolution In weather forecasting since the World War," •lie said, "nevertheless, it was the Norwegians who, during the World War, originated the system of mass analysis now In use. ','Thls Is now so much part of the work, that we maintain schools in both Chicago nncl Washington where weather forecasters can take a'three months course in this part, of the work. "Before the war. forecasting was largely by reckoning from high and low depressions as shown on the weather, map. , • "During the wa'r, however, weather forecasters were unable to gel reports from ships on weather conditions, for the' reason that these reports nre valueless unless live precise position of the vessels are known. , No Forecasts Sent - '.'For manifest reasons, the belligerents did not want to make known to the enemy the position of .any ship, and so weather forecasts from them were not sent out. . "It was then that the Norwegians began studying cloud and air formations and, by the application of mathematics, were able (6 'make shrewd weather forecasts. . "At present we are able lo mnke up what might be called a 'topographical' map of air layers, except that the air is always'In motion." , Willie the Norwegians made it possible to do weather forecasting without the aid of ships, Mitchell, however, emphasized the Importance of having the latter. "There are 27 different kinds of clouds and 93 different kinds ol precipitation {hat can be reported from ships and stations," he stated. U.

Water Problem I'osed "The world must look also to a possible growth in intestinal diseases as a consequence of air bombing operations. The bombers may frequently attack pvibllc utilities, such ns waterworks, with a consequent disruption of normal pure water supplies. That situation would cause the increase of intestinal ailments, which. in most cases are of common occurrence in armies.

AskMl concerning relatively acute problems which should receive attention at the director's conference here, Dr. Cuininlngs referred lo plague, jungle fever, and ma•aria, in addition to the prospective post-war problems tllat will jesct all countries of the world. "Tiie bubonic plague has not yet been eliminated from the West. Coast," he said, "judging by the experience of the United Stales, as in California, this will be a long task.
