The idea for the tests grew from an 1871 story that pointed to the grumblings of soldiers about marching through mud, and a theory advanced by Edward Powers that cannonading caused rain. Illinois Sen. Charles B. Farwell was a syndicate member that built the Texas Capitol Building and received the KIT Ranch in return. And the XTT needed rain. Farwell pushed through a bill appropriating money for experiments, which were carried out on a ranch near Midland, not the X1T spread. Results were inconclusive. Government documents and newspapers of the 1890's tell how he experiments aroused a n South and West Texas. A delegation from El reached the ranch almost as soon as the rainmakers and offered to pay all local expenses and furnish explosives if the government par- Pasolty would come to El Paso. furor tVER HAPPEN TO YOU? By Blalc* School Neglects Physical Health Committee Says AUSTIN (AP) — A spokesman for the Texas Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation said Tuesday that the proposed minimum physical education requirements for public schools are inadequate. The association, a group composed of teachers and educators interested in physical education plans to protest the proposed requirements when the Texas Education Agency submits them to the State Board of Education for next month. Dr. K. H. Peterson, assistant professor of physical education at the University' of Texas and chairman of the association's public and professional relations committee offered his opinions in an interview. "We're not doing any backstabbing and wd think the TEA is goins about this in the right way. They're even inviting superintendents and principals for their reactions and if enough of them want a change, they'll probably recommend it." Peterson said. Education commissioner J. W. Edgar said the agency feels "we are justified in recommending the requirements. Why should we require more physical education than math or history?" The TEA will recommend phy- sicnl education courses every day ir the seventh and eighth grades and another 1'i years in senior high school. It will also propose | that e x t r a-ourricular activities suc-h as band, pop squad and ROTC serve as a substitute. The state now requires n minimum of two units in math for graduation.

J. Kleberg of the King Ranch and Mrs. N. G. Collins, San Diego financier and rancher. On learning the appropriations were not sufficient for work in South Texas, they returned home to raise money. Mrs. Henrietta King, Kleberg's mother-in-law, made a $1,000 donation. George W. Fulton Jr. of Rockport, head of the citizens committee which collected the cash, contributed $300, while other individuals donated the balance of tho 52,269.52 spent by the group. The government's cost, for 20 balloons of varnished muslin and miscellaneous supplies, was 5633.52. Preliminary blasts on a hill west of Corpus Christi were inconclusive. It had been raining during the day and the experimenters were undecided on whether the rain that fell was natural or manmade. So they moved to San Diego, then in the grip of dry weather, The 15-man party settled down about a mile and a half northeast of the railroad station to wait for clearing weather, for the Corpus Christi disturbance had reached as far inland as San Diego. On Oct. 15 the Corpus Christi Weather Bureau gave the rainmakers the go-ahead and the fireworks started before daylight the next morning. Dynamite and other explosives were set off at intervals on the ground after midnight. Three balloons filled with explosive gases and carrying more explosives were sent aloft and exploded. Next morning, several hundred 2% pound packages of dynamite were fired on the ground between 7 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., with only a few scattered clouds showing. These disappeared during the afternoon. From 5 until 8 p.m., more bombs were exploded on the ground. Five more balloons were fired during the night, and at 3 a.m. Oct. 17, the sky was still clear and the wind fresh. All of the 17th was used in preparing for the final bombardment, when 800 ground charges were to be supplemented by balloon explosions and aerial bombs in an effort to bring down a deluge. At 6 p.m. there was only one small cloud in the sky, 50 miles to the northwest, and arrangements were complete. The dynamite and other charges were placed in a %-mile semicircle. To the left of this were five mortors, designed to cast 20-pound bombs 500 feet high, and a cannon. At 9: :45 p.m. the first combined blast of bombs, balloons and ground charges was fired, and the explosion was felt 27 miles away. From then until 11:: 30 pjn, ground charges were fired at the rate of 600 per hour, with on occasional bomb and balloon added. At midnight, spectators, convinced the experiment was a failure, went home to bed, but the weary experimenters continued to explode balloons. At 3 a.m. the cloud to the northwest started to spread, soon covering the heavens, and when a last balloon was sent up 30 minutes later exploding about a half- mile south of camp, rain apparently fell there immediately. Raindrops were also falling at camp. When some ground bombs were exploded, this increased from a sprinkle to a downpour of .47 inches by 5 a.m. Were the experiments successful? Or would there have been rain in any event? No one knows, but the experimenters, many of the people of San Diego, and members of the committee — including Kleberg and Fulton ~ were convinced the clouds and rain were caused by the concussions. Collins was the only man not pleased and the experimenters claimed that this was because the rain missed his ranches. Kleberg was of the opinion that results were encouraging enough to warrant further governmental appropriations but no more money was made available. •NrSSMSMf Hurt dm few's Beauty Or HUM* HOLLYWOOD (AP)-A decafe of serious illness has not butt Clara Bow's beauty, *ayt fUchami Arlen, her old costar in "Wop. 1 * Each Christmai, all of CUrm'i old Mends—and some new staff who weren't born when she WM the "It" girl of the Roving Twenties—get touching handwrtt- ten notes from her.

T«X«« IV S-1TSB Ottlur at By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Science this week looks at katydids with accents; sailing in space, and a mystery about forest and prairie fires: Animal Talk A new long-playing record for scientists has tuned in on katydids with Northern and Southern accents; toadfish growling when an intruder comes along; the grunt of a grouper fish, and the trill of a "tree frog, plus many other attractions. The record and a book, "Animal Sounds and Communications," issued by the American Institute of Biological Sciences, are the latest aid in research to understand how animals and in| serfs really communicate. Their Italk concerns mating, availability of food, danger warnings, and other signals. Sailing in Space The pressure of sunlight affects the orbit of Echo I, the big balloon satellite launched to explore future means of communications. This fact confirms the feasibility of another idea: that a satellite could be equipped with a huge sail, made of similar aluminized fabric, so it could be maneuvered by sunlight pressure much like an ordinary sailboat Try Sun Classified i "I couldn't get anyone in Hollywood interested in the script," she said.
