THEY GIVE HOT TIPS:
Weather Bureau Doles
Out Facts and Forecasts

By NANCY BYLAN
"We answer anything but ques-
tions on income tax."
Thus claims the Weather Bureau
at Willow Run. Pegged with eight
to ten calls an hour during the
current hot spell, the weather ex-
perts must be a source of informa-
tion for everyone from cement
pourers to strawberry growers.
WHEN A CALL is received, the
Weather Bureau doesn't know if
a radio station or a picnic planner
is' on the other end. The entire
forecast is given as a matter of
form. However, weather officials
are frequently greeted at the end
of a long forecast with an apolo-
getic, "Oh, but all I wanted to
know was the temperature."
One gentleman asked the bu-
reau which comes first, day-
light or darkness. A well-pre-
pared official replied: "If you
mean what I think you mean,
the answer is obvious."
The bureau's most frequent call-
ers are farmers and builders. The
latter often leave their phone
numbers with the bureau to assure
constant contact with the weather
report.

TRIP PLANNERS also keep bu-
reau phones busy, desiring to know
flying or road conditions.
The weather report has to be
flexible enough to serve all these
inquiries, according to the Bu-
reau. Most of the complaints re-
sult from a lack of understand-
ing of this fact.
If the Bureau predicts scattered
showers, one farmer will get a
downpour while another will meet
with clear skies. Both will phone
the Weather Bureau to complain
of gross inaccuracy.
* * *
THE WEATHER men have to
know how to handle irate voices,
for they get blamed for all tem-
poral inconsistencies.
Contrary to popular belief, the
Willow Run Weather Bureau is
not at all a cool haven on a hot
day. The Bureau possesses an
air-conditioning unit noteworthy
only because it has been inopera-
tive for the past two years. It also
uses 24 neon lights and two tele-
type machines, whiph contribute
generously to the heat in the
room.

DINNER IS SERVED--Tourists, some dressed in cowboy attire, eat dinner on the steps of the State
building, Reno, Nev., after obtaining food from the emergency center set up by the Reno Chamber
of Commerce when culinary workers left their jobs in a wage dispute closing most of the city's
eating houses.

Soil Authority
Says Surplus
Food Possible
Soil resources and technical
knowledge exist to provide far
more food than the world now
requires, according to Charles E.
Kellogg, chief of the soil survey
division of the U.S. Department
of Agriculture.
Kellogg spoke yesterday in the
University's summer lecture series
on "Natural Resources in World
Affairs."
* * *
"WE COULD HAVE abundant
food," Kellogg said. "The big
question is, how badly do we want
it? The technical problems with
soils, plants and animals, great as
they are, are small compared to
the economic, social and political
ones.
"Approxiimately 1,300,000,000
acres of land, mostly in the
tropics, could be brought into
sustained production if an ef-
ficient agricultural technique
could be established on a world-
wide basis," he asserted.
As Kellogg sees it, a vital point
in any plan to assure an adequate
world food supply will be an effi-
cient industrial organization in all
areas.
* * *
THIS WOULD be needed to pro-
vide the modern agricultural needs
of electricity, fertilizer, insecti-
cides and machinery.
The agricultural expert declared
that freer trade is a necessity,
since the whole apparatus of in-
ternational exchange, credit and
finance is vital to the efficient use
of resources and the importance
of tools and credit.

Rackham Mixer
Graduate students will have an-
other chance to get acquainted at
