Areas TV/ASHINGTON. (Unltei Prett ttateil Wire) W north central Sept, ?.— The states probably will have novcral inoro years of drought before tho wenther pendulum again swings toward In- crcatiod precipitation, according to studies made by tho Smithsonian Institution. But after 1940 there should not be another major drought until about 1980. This theory of weather cycles, on observations extending century, Indicates that based over droughts In the middle west occur every 23 years and become very Intense, like the present one, each 46 yenrs. The theory was propounded by Dr. Churls O. Abbot, necrotary of the Institution, after n detailed study of thn water level of tho Groat Lakes from 1937 to date. No Dust Bowl Thus, If Abbot IH correct, H appears that fears of tho north middle west becoming a permanent desert What a Comfortable Fooling!

The region baa experienced alternate, periods of dryness and adequate rainfall for cen- turlew. "Temperature and precipitation variations at any particular place on tho earth's surface have a marked tendency to repeat themselves every 23 years, which Is dou- bio tho HVi-year sunspjjt cyclo well known to astronomers," tho Institution said. ' "This actually has happened In tho north central United States, the water level records show, In the four 28-year periods since 1937. The general contours of tho curves of tho water-level variations for each of the 23-year Intervals are very Hlmllnr "It so happens that tho most ex- tremo variations repeat at 40-year Intervals, or double tho 23-year cycle, In that particular area," Study Lake Huron Detailed studies made by Abbot of Lako Huron showed that In 183738 Its level was very high, Indicating heavy rainfall. Then It declined steadily until tho 1848 drought. Rainfall then Increased Btoadlly for five years. Then tharo was a minor decline, followed by another upward swing until the end of the 23-year period. Tho next cycle came between 1800 and 1882. It followed tho same course tin the previous ones, but Its extremes of wetness nnd dryness worij less marked. Serious drought Clime in 1898-89. "Tho present 23-year Intnrvnl started In 1920," tho Institution said. "According to the 46-year hypothesis, tho region should have been getting dryer over clncc. It has. If tho cyclo continues true to form, the low point should bo reached some time between 1038 and 1040, followed by a rapid up swing. Most encouraging Is tho hope held out. by tho oycln pattern that there i will not be another major drought, I after this one Is overcome, until 19SO."
