Phoenix, Sat., April 15, I9fit The Arizona Repobfte IS He Knows What The Weather Is Wherever He Goes .Edward N. Whitney Checks Weather Station Atop Ills Station Wagon Man Builds Weather Station On Car Top Edward N. Whitney has arranged things so he can measure rainfall wherever he happens to be traveling. The 70-year-old engineer from Durango, Colo.-, has built himself a mobile weather station on the top of his station wagon. Here for the convention of American Society of Civil Engineers, Whitney Is a personable" old tinier with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation In his home state of Colorado. . THE GADGET Is something he rigged up "just to have a little fun." His portable station has a thermometer, hygrometer, and a device to measure precipitation.
