Rainmaker Back, Awaits Sun in NY


The University's solution to the New York water problem--Blue Hills meteorologist Wallace E. Howell '36--was back home yesterday, waiting for "the right weather conditions" to make his first try at rain production.

According to Howell, it is fairly certain that the headquarters for the experiment will be "in the high hills in the general region between Ellenville and Downsville, northwest of New York City."

Immediate Problem Eased

Although the week's rain, melted sleet, and snow have eased the immediate problem, New Yorkers are still on a subsistence water level. Howell was keeping in touch with the Northeast Weather Service at Lexington, checking on conditions over the region designated for the artificial precipitation tests.

The water shortage in New York has been grave all winter.
