That is what Harry Nolle, who for some years now has been taking daily weather records for the government weather bureau and meteorological service, is trying to find Out.' "Of course," says Harry, "if you' do believe in signs that is nothing new—your ancestors did!" , . A Volunteer Corps For the past three years the Al- ;ona weSther bureau has been se.eking the answer. to some of' ;he old .proverbs. Enlisting the aid of Ed Ostrom, Tom Reid,, Charles H.. Klamp, rlarlcy Troutman, Nolle has com- jiled considerable data as to thfe •eliabllit.y of weather signs. The farmer, of all people, is most interested in the weather, and success or- failure of his crpps, and year's income, is at stakp.•.'-.' . . Some Are Horse Sense' Take some, of the proverbs: "Year of s snow: fruit will grow/' ••',-, This proverb is sound, Nolle declares, because deep snows stay on the" ground, retard blos- ioming until after the last frost, ie points out. • . "March, damp and Warm: does 'armer much harm." This last tfarch was' the warmest in 35 years, Nolle points out, and he will leave, it to the farmer's, around herb as to how jt worked out-'.: "' ' ';.' -:.";' •. /' Moon Proverbs Don'l Work • Nolle is sure of one thing; moon -proverbs don't work out. by the moon?" is always, "No, I plant mine toy the barn." The idea of better results from moon planting has ' been proven false by every agricultural college the U. S., including Iowa. The thing weather men are most interested in, Mr. Nolle says, is "What will the future weather be?" The results in predictions have not been too satisfactory in the past. In spite of the failure of science to give a Complete answer, the need for long range weather information is more vital today than in the days of pioneers. Prediction for Winter So far this year the indications point to a cold winter with plenty of snow and rather severe storms, with the worst about the middle of January, followed by a normal winter and a normal spring, ^ "But remember, when you see the first a beller indica- lion of spring lhan when you see the first cock robin,' 1 Mr. Nolte added. And, if you have any sage advice about weather . forecasting, Mr. Nolle would like to hear about it.
