Air Pollution Control
Calls for Local Laws,
President Truman today de
clared the question of the proper;
control of air pollution is a local
problem, but the Federal Govern
ment should lead in establishing
A message from the Chief Ex
ecutive was read by Interior Secre
tary Chapman at the opening of
a three-day conference devoted
to air pollution. Being held at
the Wardman Park Hotel, this is
the first of its kind uftder auspices
of the Federal Government.
“There is an urgent need to
bring to bear on the problem of
air pollution all the scientific
knowledge at the command of in
dustry, Government and scientific
institutions,” Mr. Truman de
Called Serious Problem.
"With the increasing indus
trialization of the United States,
contamination of the air around
us has become a serious problem,
affecting all segments of our pop
ulation. Air contaminants exact
a heavy toll. They destroy grow
ing crops, damage valuable prop

countryside. In exceptional cir

“The health hazards arising
from air* pollution, as shown by
the Donora disaster, are especially
important. We need to find out
all we can about the relationship
between air contaminants and ill
“It is my hope that the exchange
of specialized information which
takes place at the United States
Technical Conference on Air Pol

prompt initiation of corrective
Loral Laws Urged.
The President said each locality
should study its own situation and
draft laws adapted to local condi
tions. But before this can be
done, “standards for evaluation
and control of air pollutants need
to be established.
“The Federal Government should
take the leadership in doing this
part of the research job,” he de
“I trust that the recommenda
tions made by this conference will
aid in the shaping of a compre
hensive plan for the study and
control of atmospheric pollution.”

hired Harvard's Dr. Howell to try
his hand at artificial rain-making,
everybody was moaning about the
water shortage. New York was

Six weeks later the shortage
isn't over, but hardly a day has
gone by that New York hasn't had
rain, snow, sleet, fog or all of
them in combination.
Last week end the Giants and
Dodgers were rained out—not for
the first time.
Yesterday, the publicity-minded
management of Palisades Amuse
ment Park, across the Hudson
River in New Jersey, offered to
double Dr. Howell’s $100-a-day
salary—if he’d call the rain-mak
“Perhaps science can develop
something that would eliminate
clouds,” wired the owners, whose
usual crowds have been staying
home out of the rain.
