J. _ <NEA).— Atomic energy may some day bo used to cn<i the threat of drought. Successful experiments both in United states and Australia have proved that both rain and snow can . be created artificially under ru'oper atmospheric conditions and oh a limited scale. "Periods of drought develop with only slight atmospheric pressure • changes amounting to thousandths of an inch," according to Ivan Hay Tannehill, chief of the U. S. Weather Bureau's Division of Synoptic Reports and Forecasts. ! "Ill the beginning or at the end of a period of drought, a relatively slight amount of energy applied at the right time and place might cause a rain-producing system to develop. That such control is possible in the future is open to little question. "No doubt the next great "drought will bring Insistent demands from all sides that atomic energy be used to produce rain." | There's a catch lo it, however. If the U. S. should be able to create enough rain to end a drought in its farm areas, Canada probably would suffer a worse one. THREE RAIN FACTORS Tannehill says there are three factors which determine the amount of rainfall the nation receives. They are: 1. The stage of the sunspot cycle. 2. The pressure and position of the Pacific "high" which moves over the ocean west of the United Stales. 3. The atmospheric pressure In the Great Basin Anticyclone is centered near Salt Lake Clt?. But distribution of the rainfall is largely controlled by conditions in the Atlantic and the Clulf cl Mexico. Since most of the wet wl:ul<) move northward from the south, it would be possible for the United States to "steal" Canada's rain. "When and if we succeed in controlling the climate in more than a local and limited degree, we will "Tlic droughts of the next few years are not likely to be as disnitrous as the one in 1336 that almost burlcil this Ckliilioma farm in a rain of dust.

S. weather expert, who sees climate control as the best answer to~such weather problems. need .broad am! effective regulatory measures to make sure that changes which are advantageous one area will not be allowed to produce disasters in other areas, Tannehill says. Last year barely missed being a drought year, Tannehill says. A "billion dollar rain" in April saved much of Ihe nation's crops; and thereby snvcd Ihousnnds of people throughout the world from starvation, he says in his book, "Drought, I!.s Causes and Effects." to be published by Princeton University Press. Farmers may nol be so lucky [his year. Heavy winter snows and rains through the midwest this winter ^vlll help. But weathermen are worried about the sunspots. Tannehill has studied weather bureau records going back 80 years. He is convinced that cycles ol draught arc definitely related to to the 11-yenr sunspol cycles; 1!M7 is just II years from the central year of she last great u. s. draught. "The draughts of the next few years are not likely to be as dhi those of the thirties." Tannehill snys. But he warns fanners ngnlnst planting marginal areas normally iiiifit for crop-farm ing. Thousands of farmers already are planting such fields, Tannehill says, and in the face of tlic inadequate rainfall, such crops will probably fail.
