Tourist City Applauds Failure oi Science To Produce Snowflqkes. ST. PETERSBURG. Pin., Dec. 31 'Urt—Operation Snowflakc. an attempt to make it snow over this "sunshine city" by dry-Icing clouds, was hailed as a success today. It didn't snow. That, said city publicity director Pressly Phillips, was exactly what he wanted to prove that even thc- best efforts of science would not produce snow for this Gulf Coast tourist center. Pilot Bob Leon took off with 10 1 ) pounds of dry ice nnd dropped U in the right sort of stratus-cumu- lus clouds at 12,000 feet, in 31 degree weather. He dived beneath the clouds, but found no snow faltnif;. An accompanying plane also failed to notice snow, and the dry ice apparently evaporated before hitting the ground. Some street observers who knew the -stunt was being tried, after perfect weather spoiled chances for a white Christmas last week, thought that it had worked, so fast did the. clouds disappear when Leon reached them. But he took no credit, and Phillips was glad to call it a failure. Arkansan Honored BIRMINGHAM. Ala.. Dec. 31 I UP) -.The magazine. Progressive.
