f 2 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, JULY 5, 1951 'it VURSELL CALLS FOR REGULATING RAIN MAKERS ill nois Farmers Attribute Floods to New Mexico Cloud Tampering. ' By Associated Press WASHINGTON, July 5 — Rep". VurselJ (R-Ill.) says the rainmakers have been so successful in their work that Congress may have to put them under controls. He wants a "carerul study" by Congress of the whole question of artificial rain making. Vursell, in a statement in the Congressional record, endorsed a bill by Senator Case (R-S. D.) to authorize the Agricultural Department to conduct, research on the matter. "It appears we have reached the stage where the rainmaker is no longer looked upon as a crackpot," the Illinoisan said. " * * * his work is regarded as So successful as to call for a study of the whole problem of cloud seeding and other artificial processes" used to bring rain. j Vursell said "many of us feel" j that Congress should "explore the necessity of legislation which would set up proper .controls." Rainmaking, benefits some farmers but injures others by producing floods and drouths, Vur­ sell said and continued: "Some enthusiastic boosters for rainmakers say their land has • doubled in value. "Some farmers threaten law suits, others demand some sort of protection and regulation." Change Weather He said scientists can produce evidence to show that the weather has been changed as far as 2,000 miles from where clouds have been "seeded" with chemicals or dry ice to produce rain. He went on: "Many farmers in Illinois and Indiana who have suffered great damages from floods for the past four or five years attribute these, floods and damages to the rain-| makers in the New Mexico area' tampering with the weather." Monravia, Africa, was named after President James Monroe of the United States. OLD FAITHFUL - Never absent from work and late only once in 65 years is the record established by Thomas W.
