PAGE EIGHT NEVADA STATE JOURNAL. RENO. NEVADA. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4,1954 Navy's Hurricane Hunters Risk Their Lives to Chart Path, Strength of Storms By LOWRY BOWMAN United fna Staff ContipOBdent JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 2. (UP)-OJ. S. Navy ·weather planes have been plunging into hurricanes for 10 years and the men who fly them concede they can't explain whv they stick at it. The'35 officers and 200 enlisted men of airborne Early Warning Squadron Four, the Navy's "hurricane hunters," are not thrill-seeking youngsters. All but two of fhe pilots are married men, most of them veterans, and why they love their job is a mystery, even to them. Round-the-clock Duty They are all volunteers, get no extra pay and must stay on call 24 hours a day during tH? hurricane season from June 15 to November 30. Their job is to fly at wavetop Social Notes From Paradise level into each hurricane to chart its force and direction. Their reports give coastal towns time to prepare and hurricanes no longer take the same fearful toll as the howler which hit Galveston in 1900, killing an estimated 6,000 persons. The squadron, based at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station with a detachment at San Juan. Puerto Rico, operates under the control of Fleet Weather tral in Miami. No Direct Orders Cen- Because of the danger of flying into a hurricane which may have winds of more than 150 miles an hour, the pilots are "requested" and not o,-dered to enter the storm. Whether they do or not is up to them. They always do unless they feel it PARADISE VALLEY, Nov. 2. (Special) Louie Liotard returned Sunday from Reno where he had received medical attention.

Linn had as house guests this week Rev. Mr. Linn's parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Linn, of Long Beach, and also his brother and wife, would definitely jeopardize the Jives of their crews. When word of a suspicious storm area is flashed from Weather Central, the crew of one of the squadron's six radar- equipped Neptune planes takes off. Once in the hurricane it takes the stiength of both pilot and co-pilot to handle the controls and they must often let the plane, like a well trained horse, choose its own course. The crew, strapped in tightly, is soaking wet in minutes as the rain forces its way through unsuspected cracks and around the window frames. Usually everyone becomes seasick--no matter how many hurricanes they have weathered. Photograph Storms Two men watch the engines. Two navigators are necessary to keep even a rough check on the position, the radio and radar operators try to. keep their instruments in working order and the aerologist gauges the wind's force by observing wave motions.

A Neptune flown by Lt. Miller Bell of Savannah, Ga., landed last year with its plexiglass nose blown away. The night radar reconnaissance flights are calmer but the plane still .must stay in the turbulent fringes of the storm to track it by radar. One of the biggest dangers on these flights is the dazzling electrical display which hangs around the fringe of a hurricane. The third hurricane last year was lit up like a Christmas tree," Bell said.
