THIS WORLD, May 1, 1960 SAN FRANCISCO SUNDAY CHRONICLE Page 19 [[image - photograph]] United Press International BEAMING WITH PRIDE, Mary Martin and Jackie Gleason displayed their Tony awards for notable acting on the musical stage (in "The Sound of Music" and "Take Me Along," respectively). Among other winners of the annual Broadway awards: Anne Bancroft ("The Miracle Worker" and Melvyn Douglas ("The Best Man"). pollutants, when it hits the earth. Man first got interested in the size of rain drops back in the 1890's, Mueller said, at a time when there was really no great practical need for the knowledge. And even in this day of precision measurement, he doesn't know exactly why rain drops look mostly like gum drops, occasionally like wieners and sometimes like dishes. "Probably turbulence," he said. "Probably changing shape all the way down, but most are like gum drops." The conference heard reports that radar weather satellites are probably a long way away. This is because no one has figured out how to boost a source of the tremendous power radar requires into orbit. But aircraft industry experts attending the local meeting all said that this could undoubtedly be done some day. And the conference heard how radar watched the labor of Hurricane Gracie 500 miles from Puerto Rico last year, the first time man has ever seen a tempest grow from mere teapot turbulence. Navy Lieutenant (jg) W.G. Cronise of the Navy's Airborne Early Warning Squadron Four, a hurricane hunting outfit that seeks out trouble and flies into it, doesn't yet know the significance of all the data the squadron gathered in watching Gracie's arrival. But full analysis of radar photos may lead to a way of predicting when hurricanes are coming. Radar is already giving millions of residents of the Southeastern states advance notice of storms with the power to destroy their property. And it may someday increase the efficiency of forecasts in the Bay Area, even if we don't have to head for cyclone shelters in this region. Those angels, of course, might interfere. Angels, it should be noted, are completely unexplained echoes that show up on radar screens in clear weather. Somebody way, way back decided that this was a good name for the wraithly electronic echoes. It is still a good name, the Weather Bureau explains. For nobody yet knows why they are there.
