Margaret's Romance Wins Press Support LONDON lift — Princess Margaret.'* reported romance with a handsome, divorced airman won editorial support yesterday from one newspaper and another gave the pretty princess a tip on what, to do If sister Queen Elizabeth II won't approve the match. The pretty princess's latest rumored romance, with Group Oapt. Peter WooldridRe Townseml, drew comment as far nway as Australia. Vhere a leading Methodist, churchman told his Melbourne confrrcRa- tion recent, gosfilp and rumors nbniil. Margaret's nctivilles were unfair and completely inhuman. Following publication of reports about the romance between the 22- year-old princess and Townscnd, a 38-year-old commoner, he was transferred last week from his Job as an equerry with the royal house- i ho).d and assigned to Britain's em- j bflssy in Brussels as nir attache.

Jones has tirelessly experimented to prove his theory that tornado storms radiate a certain type of electrical charjie thnt makes them different from other .storms. Until now. Jones has avoided building up hopes that tornadoes could be tact-ed nnd pinpointed. But 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 Rovern- nient or private business to finance tracking stations which could spot the. tornadoes »s they develop and plot their courses so (owns in Ihelr paths could be alerted. He estimates a station and its equipment would cost nbout $300,- by Felix Carney Pity poor Duncan Renalito, who is known to the small fry all over the country by the monicker of "The Cisco Kid." He's in a Hollywood hospital with a broken neck. It seems that Cisco and his sidekick Pancho were filming one ol their popular TV films, and a gang of villains were supposed to roll a rock down on the hero while he rode (he trail below. They were supposed to miss him, and the rock was really a synthetic thing made of plaster. But things went all w r o n g. The "rock." still weighing some 65 pounds, didn't miss him, and it was lucky the Cisco Kid lived lo ride again. As it, is, he'll he in the hospital for weeks, but eventually he'll he back on the range . . . with a sharp eye out for tumbling rocks!

The Blxpress pointed out that Townsend had divorced his wife In 1952, charging her with misconduct, and had been awarded custody of their two sons. "He \vas not the Sillily party." the paper asserted. The Sunday Pictorial said that after she's 25—in August, 1955— Margaret can marry without her Rister-sovereiRn's consent. Under the Ro.val 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.

For the first MX months of 1353. tornadoes have t«kt*n inov« Uv.ui 250 lives.

I which has ;i nortnnl radius of 130 inile.s. j Jones* method is based on hi.s ! proven theory Hint tornado clouds j tfive out hitfh-vollage discharges! called sferies and. that the clis- charffe, number and duration are identifiable. He four basic pieces of equipment- radar, direction - find- incl apparatus, wave form analyser (an osrllloseope which transfers the hif,'h-voMftKC discharges into visible lines) and a storm-intensity incident a /. i m u t h intergrator (called a tornado 'ii" 1 --). ' Locate Center First, radar locates a heavy j storm center The oscilloscope, j which is .similar to a television j set, is used Lo determine if a tor- ' rmdic wave pattern is in evidence, j and In conjunction with the cliree- j tion finder, to determine the azi- ' muth of the storms of highest in- I tensity. Thft tornado meter measures the decree of activity, ./ones, in checking his findings over the years, has found that 15 lightning strokes, or sferics. a second being discharged in a storm indicates heavy hall is occuring nnd that the storm Is building to a tornndo. Twenty-three strokes a second indicate tornado activity is going on. When 26 strokes are recorded, the tornndo has been spawned. Jones is quick to point out that thf* forming of a tornado doesn't mean It will strike the ground. Hut once it is located, its path can he 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 nbrih and out of radar range, the station here was ab!r? to follow the twister. During the \ .iml time of heaviest damage wh;m the tornado was in downtown Waco, the tornado meter recorded 2fi strokes a second .
