WIRE AND PIPE GONE SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Pat F. O'Connor believes thieve will steal anything. He opened his business one morning, -flicked on the TV set and got no picture. He investigated and found the wire connecting the set to an antenna had been stolen. Along the way, he found someone, had taken the drain pipe from his building's rain gutter. Scientists Study Killer Winds By LARRY PHIPPS NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Buildings blasted apart like playing-card houses. Trees broken like discarded match sticks. Homes and lives shattered in a few -moments of uncontrolled violence. Such scenes are created throughout the Midwest. and Southwest each year by one of nature's most dreaded cxcesse — the tornadoes which can spew from almost any severe thunderstorm. Nothing known to man can control the ravages of the killer winds — but greater knowledge of the forces which generate the twisters' deadly vortex is saving more lives each year. The United States, using facilities centered in the university city of Norman, is in the sixth year of an ambitious study of thunderstorms, squall lines and tornadoes. The studies at the Norman Severe Storms Laboratory already have led to improved predictions which weather experts are using to give advance notice of threatening storm systems. The tools of the study are many systems, ground-based balloon-borne radio radio devices, visual sightings, and reports from airplanes which fly into, around and over the storms. Piloted by Air Force Maj. R. J. Vanden-Heuvel, one of the key pieces of this year's study is an especially equipped FIDO Sabre Jet fighter plane from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base at Dayton, Ohio. Maj. Vanden-Heuvel is a member of the select group called "Rough Riders," men ful-appearing major said. "Other pilots are ordered not to gel too close to storms — they let me fly right into them." Guided by radar-watch teams on the ground, Vanden-Heuvel makes repeated runs through developing storms. The equipment packed into the nose and cockpit Of the plane is used to collect and monitor the forces and atmospheric conditions. The major is operating under some strict limits because pilot last year flew into a storm bearing baseball-sized hail. Frank Dechirico, in charge of maintenance of the Rough Ride aircraft, said the bullet-proof glass on the cockpit was shattered, there were giant holes in the wings and body, and pieces of the wing cover peeled off. "I've been in combat situations, and I've never seen an airplane come back damaged like that plane," he said. In addition to the Rough Rider flights, an .equipment-weighted DC6 will fly around the storms to record peripheral information while a U2 flies over the tops of the stoms ,which obsevers say can shoot up thousands of feet in a minute's time. "No one knows how fast the circular winds in a tornado blow," said Gene Lee, coordinator of aircraft study at the lab in Norman. who ride the wild winds of storm systems. "There isn't a man in my unit who wouldn't like the chance to "We've never been able to get a direct reading on the winds of a twister," Lee said. "Our airplanes can and do fly into hurricanes, but hurricanes have straight winds and seldom blow over 100 miles an hour. "Tornadoes have vicious circular winds which we think can blow 200-to 500 miles an hour." The study will wind up sometime in June, since this is the do what I'm doing," the youth- period of greatest tornado activ- ity, although twisters have been known to occur any time of the year. Dr. William Kessler, director of the lab, calls his station — located in what has become known as "Tornado Alley" — the ideal spot. "No other country has severe storms like the United States," picked i better place." Tornadoes are most frequent in northern Texas, Oklahoma Kansas and Missouri. Records show that tornadoes have claimed an average 197 lives a year over the past 48 years. During their most frightful blow, tornadoes killed 689 persons in Missouri, Illinois and he said. "We just couldn't have I Indiana on a terrifying sweep on By J. C. TILLMAN Associated Press Writer For marry Arkansans, summer life is a procession of guests stopping over in travels Ihrough the state, or just coming to visit. The visits gave both natives and transplanted Arkansans a chance to show off the state. This can become a complicated thing, if the guests suddenly take a notion to stay in i state park for a while. Suddenly is the key word. It is sheer madness after the irst thaw to attempt finding a cabin at one of these places on 12-hour notice. But it is not unpleasant to try to do so. "They can think of more Peasant ways to tell you ;hey're full-up," commented one visitor. Camping spaces are much easier to come by than cabins. After telling one couple the park cabins were full, a manager suggested they rent a tent and take one of the camping spots. 'Just come on in and set up," le said. "If nobody meets you, camp, but found a similar attitude at another one. No one met them, so they proceeded to set up camp. The next morning a tourist- struck up a conversation. After looking type strolled by and several minutes of casual talk, spiced with queries about the campers' welfare, he mentioned that he was with the park and could collect their $1 fee if they didn't want to go to the office. A young visitor from a much warmer climate didn't appear perturbed by 90-degree weather in a visit to the state this summer—until her older brother who was listening to a radio told her. 'Whew, it's 90 degrees!" She stopped her playing, eyed him and asked, "Is that sweating hot?" The scenery in other states wasn't attractive enough to keep one Arkansan occupied. In a 5^-hOur drive through sarts of two neighboring states, come on in in the morning and he compiled these statistics ay." Cars met 1,535. Cars passed They didn't go that particular 84. Cars that passed him, 10. March 18, 1925. From 1875 through 1965, records show 1,432 tornadoes in Oklahoma, with 1,076 persons killed. The most deadly storm to strike Oklahoma passed over Ellis and Woodward counties on April 8, 1947. Cutting a swath which ranged up to two miles in width, and hitting portions of Oklahoma, Texas an Kansas, the storm struck Woodward, in western Oklahoma. It killed 101 persons and injured 782 others. With a sound like an exprss train, tornadoes form a funnel- shaped cloud which stretches to the ground in its most destructive force. * * * The powerful winds, combined with changes in air pressure which can burst buildings as though a bomb had gone off inside, form a threat which can be avoided only by taking cover in reinforced structures, such as storm shelters or inside stong Buildings. The weather experts say that their greatest hope is to increase th? margin of safety for jersons in the path of tornadoes giving them enough advance warning to allow them to seek shelter before the storm strikes.
