WED., AUGUST 22, Mexico Faces Cattle Losses Due to Drought MEXICO crry fAPi-caitie- mrn in parched north Mexico will face a critical situation if they don't get heavy rains within two weeks, the National Cattle Confederation reports. President Octavia Ochoa said many ranches had enough water in their wells only for that length of time. He said the affected area Includes the states of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Tamauipas, Chihuahua, Durango, Baja California and Sonora. "If the needed rains don't come, only prompt action by the government to supply needed water from dams will prevent a crisis," Ochoa said. Despite the warning of a possibly critical situation. Ochoa said reports so far of heavy losses of cattle because of drought appeared to be unfounded. He said the confederation's information indicated "not more thnn a few hundred" had died. Ochoa added, however, it was possible thai a report from Sonora of (he deaths of 5.000 cattle could be accurate. Honor a is one ofj Mexico's prime c a 1 (1 e raising states. Warnings of an impending crisis came on the heels of word the government will allow more cattle to be exported this year. It has set a new yearly export figure of 1,317,000, an increase of 317,000 over last year. Space Spots Said To Be Snowflakes HOUSTON, Tex. (API-Space scientists were told Tuesday there is considerable evidence indicating most of the mysterious particles observed by astronauts John H. Glenn Jr. and Malcolm Scott Carpenter were snowflakcs. Dr. John A. O'Kcefe, Grccnbclt, Md. p also said photographs taken j during Carpenter's May 24 orbital flight indicate some ot' the parti-! cles were very consider ably ' brighter than the moon. O'Keefe, assistant chief of the ; theoretical division of the G o d- i dard Space Flight Center, d i s- j cussed tlie particles at a confer- j nice at which the manned spacecraft center presented a formal report on the Carpenter flight. O'Keefe said the particles seen on the May 24 flight appeared to emanate from the capsule and that plausible sources were snow formed by condensation of steam from the life support system and from small particles of d u s t- \saste and bits of insulation. "There is considerable evidence which points to snow as the source of the majority of the material," he said. "In the first place, water is dumped out of the spacecraft in far larger quantities than any other substance. In the second place, the material looked like snowflakes, both to Glenn and to Carpenter. Water Behavior Peculiar in Space MOSCOW (AP)-Lt. Col. Pavel Popovich said Tuesday he found the behavior of air and water in a partly filled flask of particular interest in his scientific experiments in orbit. "On earth the water is below and the air on top," he told a news conference. "In space the water is on top and below while the air is in the middle in the shape of a sphere. No mallei- how hard you shake the flask, tlie air will again assemble in a sphere." County in Florida Has Outbreak of Sleeping Sickness ST.
