You're liable to end up like Vic Dnmone — rich nnd famous, And overworked. "I haven't hod » chmu-e M breathe ever since I gol out of the Army," said Dnmone, Inking a deep breath while he had the chance. "If I'm not doing a show.

Despite this load of work, rest assured that Damone is a happy man. "I'm slowly but surely accl.imnt- ing myself to civilian life." lie said. "After the Army, it's nice being my own boss, r can blow my top any time I want, and they can't put me on KP." Damone amazes his fans by his ability to remember their faces. And^ after beins snubbed by many croon- j ers. the fans love his friendliness. He «ven Invites them In and plays rec- j ords for them.

Margaret's Romance Wins Press Support LONDON f/P) — Princess Margaret's reported romance with a handsome, divorced nlrmnn won editorial support yesterday from one j newspaper and another Rave the pretty prlncws a Up on what, to do it sister Queen Elizabeth II won't approve the match. The pretty princess's Int.est rn- mored romance, with Group Capt. j Peter WooldridRe Townsend. drew I comment as far away as Australia, where a leading Methodist churchman told his Melbourne ronpreiza- tion recent gossip nnri rumors nbnul. Margaret's ncttvittfis were unfair and completely inhuman. Following publication of reports about the romance between the 22- year-old princess' and Townsend, a 38-year-old commoner, he was transferred last week from his job as an equerry with the roynl household and nss'uined Lo Britain's embassy in Brussels us nlr attache.

Unl.ll now, Jones has avoided building up hopes that tornadoes could he tatted and pinpointed. Rut in a progress report marie public today, he said he is ready to he'p set up a nationwide system when officials authorize it. Up to Government However, Jones adds, it will be up to the states, federal government or private business to finance tracking stations which could spot the tornadoes us they develop and plot their courses so towns in their paths could he alerted. He estimates a station and its equipment would cost about $300,- born divorcee. Wnllis Simpson "High members of the royal family were not opposed to the match, but had been advised to break it up," the Express snid, asserting that "the church should not harm the life of a princess, whose welfare the people hoJ.d 60 close to their hearts." The Express pointed out thnt Townsend had divorced his wife in 19/12, charging her with misconduct, and had been awarded custody 01 their two suns. "He was not tht guilty party," the paper a.sserfed. The Sunday Pictorial said that after flhe's 25—in August. 1955— Margaret can marry without her sister-sovereign's consent. Under the Royal Marriage Act, a member of the royal family over 25 can marry without the ruler's approval 12 months after giving the Privy Council notice of the intent to wed. in Melbourne, Dr. Irvin G. Benson, superintendent of the Victoria Central Methodist Mission, described the princess as a devoted Chris- linn woman and said.

Jt seems that Cisco and his sidekick Pancho were filming one of their popular TV films, and a gang of villains \vert supposed to roll a rock down on the hero while he rode the trail below. They were supposed to miss him, and the rock was really a synthetic thing made of plaster. But things went all wrong. The "rock." still weighing some 65 pounds, didn't miss him, and it was lucky the Cisco Kid lived to ride again.

For the first MX months of 13&3, tornadoes have taken more than 250 lives, j Jones has not had time to survey the country to determine how , many stations would he needed j Lo make the wm-ning system rf- ' fective. Hou'ever, rough KUOS.SC.S rariRR from 50 to 100. The effective . range of ;i station is decided by | one of its in.struments, radar, ' which has a normal radius of 130 miles. j Jom'.s' method i.s based on his ! proven theory '.hat tornado clouds ; wive out hiyh-voitaffe discharge's! called sferirs and that the, dis- j charge, number and duration are j Identifiable.

Locale Center [ First, radar locates a heavy j storm center The oscilloscope, ! which is similar to u television \ set. is vised to determine if a tor- ; nadic wave pattern is in evidence, i nnd in conjunction with the dircc- \ tion finder, to determine the a/,i- ' muth of the storms of highest in- | tensity. The tornado meter measures the tlrgree nl activity. ./ones, in checking his findings over the years, has found that 15 liifhtnini? strokes, or sferics, a HCC- ond being discharged in a storm Indicates heavy hall is occurins and that the storm is building to a tornado. Twenty-three strokes a second indicalfi tornado activity Is going on. When 26 strokes are recorded, the tornado has been spawned. Jones is quick to point out that the forming of n tornado doesn't mean it will strike the ground. But once ,k is located, its path can be plotted and It can be followed by radar and directional equipment, Has Worked The station operated by Jones is at Oklahoma A & M and he has accurately identified and tracked tornadoes within the 130 miles radius of the station. During the recent tornado which passed through San Angelo and Waco, Tex., causing more than 100 deaths and millions of dollars worth of damage, Jones set his equipment into action. Although far. to the north and out of radar range, the station here was ah!? to follow the twister. During the v .ual time of heaviest damage wh^n the tornado was in ; downtown Waco, the tornado meter recorded 26 strokes a second . | This activity diminished to an Entire Mi Hit by Storms Scattered Rains Help Break Drought 1 In Most States By The Associated FreSs The Midwest was drenched and cooled today after violent thunderstorms.
