Little of the aloofness cr shyness traditionally i associated wilh scientists is found j in Dr. Abbot. He can sp.?ak the | average man's language without cf- • fort, but uses it with modesty nnd i cautious restraint in speaking ofl the significance of his own achive- j menls. . His Important discoveries in so-' lar radiation were firs! fathered by > Professor Samuel P. Langley, yiird i Smitlisonian secretary, who is most , famous because he woiked out, lhe j basic principles of airplane flight! and built and flew In 18M the large ' model of a mechanically-driven i heavler-than-air machine. j -Langley," ^ays ' Abb=t, "knew ! that all life depended on the sun ! and thai if we knew thc amount i or radiation and ils influence, how ' niuclv was lost on the way down ' through the alinpsphcrc and how j much lhe ear!h itself radialcd, we i would ha-,.: the facts en which tern- ; pc-ratufe and weather depend." \ Planned lu Be a Carpenter i Abbot was born on a farm at j Wilton, N. H., and at the age of ' 13 was building himself n forge' and making a bicycle. Me rigged • up wiVer wheels, mmded. farm Ira- . plements and made a saw out of a • tin can. He intended to become a ! carpenter. But people sacrificed to | keep him at school and he began i to win pri?i?s for scholarship and j Good English composition. He still | has tha knack of writing, as shown j by his b^oks and many popular ar- | licles on science. His family sold i seme property and sent him to the ! Massachusetts Instilulc of Tech-' nology, and it wns while he was' doing graduate work <here that I Langley wrote lo Tech asking rec- | cmmendatiwi of an assistant for I the astrophysical laboratory. Lang-1 ley found Abbot in old overalls on i an experiment, took one look atj him and engaged him at. once. That i was in 1895. He began at once by I perfecting instruments which cna-1 blecl Langley and himself lo plot I the Infra-red spectrum. Sun's Rays Not Conslanl ! "About, 1903," Abbot says, "cer-; lain experiment In WashingtMi, led us to suspect, thai the sun's: rays at their source ninety million miles away wore not constant, but variable. In our early work toward confirmation of this suspicion we developed the silver disk pyrhe- liomeu:r which is now used by observalorlcs over the world for measuring radiation. "We put up au obwrvatory on Mount Wibcn and our observations p rt . MW11 , C,l. _,./!

Cost Nearly a Million Observations from all three sla tions—Chilean, South African an-J California]!—have been receiver and used by Dr. Abbot, in Washington. The Smithsonian group has been the only one in the world to- carry on such experiments Abbot says the work to date has cost lomewhere between half a million and a million dollars. Of'.en il Ins teen hampered by tack of funds. "We are not in the business of wcalher forecasting," Dr. Abbol says.
