I I m I . r ' TEMPERATURE The timing bar or calendar illustrates the expected periods of rainfall arid high and low temperatures for tho next 28 days. If a cold period appears on the timing bar, or calendar, it means that the day or days indicated will be significantly colder than the long-time average temperature for that same period. Likewise, if a warm period appears ion the timing bar or calendar, it means that the day or days indicated will be warmer than the long-time average temperature for that same period. Because at night it is usually colder than during tho day, tho cold periods indicated refer to expected minimum night-time temperatures and warm periods refer to expected maximum day-time temperatures. During tho periods Indicated where rainfall, snow, or showers are expected, look for stormy unsettled weather, but don't expect rain, snow, or whatever type of precipitation Is called for, to occur on every day of the interval.

Weather j . ' ' . j Forecasts Go Out to Nation By JOSEPH L. MTLEB ' WASHINGTON, May 23. P The Weather Bureau is now putting out information twice a day -on which way to run If H-bombs start falling. Delbert M. Little, assistant chief of the Weather Bureau, said this information upper air fallout observations" has been a regular part of the bureau's teletype report since May 15. i I With the! data thus supplied civil defense; officials in potential target ! areas can quickly Compute the radioactive fallout patterns that would result from nuclear attack almost anywhere in the United States. Thus armed, they can deter mine what areas must be evacuated if an air; attack warning comes and! in what directions populations must be moved to escape, fallout. BOW IT WORKS What the Weather Bureau does is measure wind velocities and directions every 10,000 feet from the ground up to 80,000 feet at its nearly three-score upper air stations. It then figures how far and m what directions the wind would travel in three hours at the various altitudes. Coupled1 with estimates of bomb size and point of burst. this data supplies the fallout pattern i the region in which deadly radioactive debris would descend downwind from a tar get for hours after an H-bomb explosion.; I Meteorologists plot wind speeds and directions aloft-by sending up balloons and following them with automatic tracking equipment on the ground. The tracking equipment records on tape the balloon's position at various brief time intervals. RESULTS CIRCULATED The bureau's upper air bser vations go out two times a day on the 30,000 miles of teletype circuits which -connect its stations throughout the country, They go directly to federal civil defense headquarters at Battle Creek, Mich., and to key re gional officials elsewhere. The world learned about the deadly hazard of radioactive fallout after the U.S. H-bomb tests in the Marshall Islands in tne spring xS 1954. Ray-spitting particles contaminated a 7.000- ,square-mile sea area extending un mnesi downwind from the big explosion of March 1, 1954. It has been estimated that a similarly j poisoned land area w.ould be uninhabitable for perhaps as long as three months. 3,000 Battle Forest Fires in Canada HALIFAX, N.S., May 23. M Unchecked forest fires burned paths ofj destruction through two Canadian provinces today, leveling more than 100 build ings in Nova Scotia and; eating tnrough 15,000 acres of rich Ontario timber lands. Y Three thousand volunteers ringed the southwest? Nova Sco- tian ports of Liverpool and Bridgewajterj as winds whipped the spreading flames which al ready haye caused hundreds of .Al . a .1. " uiousanas oi aouars damage. In Northern Ontario 67 fires raged. Uncqntrolled flames cut across the bushland and threat ened to engulf two small com muni ties.; The blazes were de scribed as jthe worst Ontario authorities have witnessed in years.

With SAS (Delayed) Did you know that , . the Arctic tone is perhaps the driest, of all zones, in fact perhaps the driest region on earth, averaging less than IS inches of precipitation a year. The American explorer, Robert Edwin Peary, accom panied by a "Negro, Matthew A. Henson, and four Eskimos, was the first white man to reach the North Pole, April 6, 1909, after making eight Arctic trips, be ginning in 1886. Quite likely, Eskimos were there before Peary.1 The largest star yet . discov ered in the far-flung universe,! Alpha Herculis, is 200,000 times the diameter of ou sun. As the universe goes, it is relatively close to us Its light takes only 1,200 years to reach our earth. So, until the year 3,155 A.D., we'll never know if it is there today. Birds generally lay their eggs in a nest or in some safe place on the ground, but the fairy tern of America lays its solitary egg balanced on the bough of a tree. DUCKS HOLD RECORD ' Speaking of laying eggs, cham pion ducks frequently outlay champion chickens. In 1927 the world's duck record for? laying eggs was 363 eggs lor 365 day: missing only two days out of the year. For the same period, the chicken record was only 351 eggs a loss of 14 days. As far as I can determine, the world's record for chickens was set by an Australorp hen of Australia which in 1946 turned out 361 eggs in 365 days. There are no foup-footed ani mals in the Antarctic. Many fish get their sleep in short naps during which they seem to slumber quite soundly, Durjng their annual migra tion, geese can fly at 60 miles an hour day and night without letup and they have been encountered by airplanes at a height of nearly 5 miles right around 27.000 feet elevation.

What's Up Oakland Tribune, Monday, of Wiest s-xyst throughout the bitterest winter to hatch their eggs. ANIMALS MIGRATE Mammals in the northland either migrate as do the birds or increase the -amount of their blubber as a food reserve be fore winter sets in. In addition to being a food reserve, when foraging is difficult, it also keeps the animal's heat in and the .cold out. That is because blubber is an extremely poor conductor of heat. So poor, in fact, that a dead walrus which has sunk - to the bottom of the cold Arctic sea will yet remain very warm after 12 hours. The toothless whalebone whale, actually has two sets of teeth. However, j both sets are useless since they never cut the gum. A brooding bird turns its eggs with its beak or feet at least once and sometimes twice a day It is thought this keeps the eggs evenly warmed. What grass is to cattle, mice are to most flesh-eating animals. Because of the tremendous demands made upon their race, mice must multiply very. rapidly or become extinct. As a result, it is possible for a meadow mouse to have up to 17 litters a year, averaging three to five to the litter. This, of course, is the highest reproductive rate of any mammal. In sections of the Arctic summer temperatures may rise above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. .

No. 634 -May 21-Ot . May 23, 1955 33 NAACP to Press ; j Probe of Death BELZONL Miss, May 23.-MA The National Association .for Advancement of Colored People has pledged legal war against Mississippi's voting laws, after' a Negro civil rights leader died under mysterious circumstances. NAACP executive secretary Roy Wilkins promised the court battle at a mass meeting yester day of some 400" Negroes, called to protest the handling of the Rev. George Lee's death. Wilkins, from New York, charged an "atmosphere of racial hatred stirred up by the pro-segregation citizens councils "brought about this slaying. Lee was found fatally injured when his car crashed into a house. Afr FBI laboratory said specks of metal around his face resembled bird shot ? Negro leaders believe he was killed for urging other; Negroes to register to vote in Humphreys County where; Negrees outnumber whites. Sheriff Ike Sheltori agreed Lee was shot, but thought-it might be the work of. another Negro because the minister was a "ladies' man." The New York chapter of the NAACP has pledged, $500 to help the national organization investigate and publicize the un solved death. ' Slain Newsman Buried at Home DAYTON, O., Mayl23-W Gene D.
