Smithsonian Expei'is Engaged in i Squabble About the Weather j THE complaint that no one ever does anything about the weather is being answered today. Two learned and august agencies under the government right now ar£ engaged—in a perfectly nice and dignified way—in an old-fashioned squabble about the weather. The Smithsonian Institute says that by observing variations in solar radiation, which means the amount of beat traveling earthward from the sun it is possible to predict the’ weather far in advance. The Weather Bureau, in origin a child of the Smithsonian, doubts if there is any variation whatever in the sun's intensity Furthermore, it de clares there is no known method of predicting the weather accurately more than 36 hours ahead. Forecasting Sure Charles F Marvin, chief of the weather bureau, cites the established record of his system based upon numerous reports from stations all over the country. When areas of high and low pressure are defined ey such reports forecasting can be rather sure because storms are Known to travel definite routes. The bureau score is more than 85 per cent accuracy as to rise and fall of temperature and more than 80 per cent as to sunshine or storm. Dr C G Abbot, assistant secre tary of the Smithsonian Institute, enthusiastically favors the solar radiation theory The institute al ready has sojar radiation observa tories on Table Mountain in the southern California desert and an other or. Mount Montezuma in Chile. Dr Abbot left early in November to select a site tor a shad It wall be either in Morocco. Beluchistan or southwest Africa The Argentine weather bureau al uses the variations In solar radiation as the basis for its fore casts obtaining its data from the v4.ile station Correct Method Advocates of long distance fore casting agree that the weather ».ureau has the correct method of predicting tomorrow s weather But they claim it doesn t go far enough. They assert that the sun is one of the well-known class of variable stars, brighter some days than others As much as 5 per cent more heat may come from the sun at maximum strength than at mini; nium These powerful differences. i»ey say. so affect the atmosphere Sixteen Mountain Lions 28 Bobcats Killed Over Arizona In One Month PHOENIX Sixteen mountain lions. 28 bobcats, 5 wolves, 153 coyotes, 15 foxes, 1 bear and 2 skunks were either killed or cap-! tured in Arizona during December in the co-operative federal and state predatory animal drive throughout the state, according to a report just issued by M. E. Musgrave, leader of predatory animal control, from the United States biological survey office at Phoenix. Seven federal hunters and 15 state representa tives participated in the December drive and are continuing their work, the report states. Lack of moisture, both in desert and mountain regions, facilitated the work of the hunters, once the various water holes were located, the report states. More coyote signs than usual were found on the low desert lands this year, which is attributed to the hunters con fining themselves more to the irri gated lands where sheep were pas tured last year, thus giving the coyotes an opportunity to breed. In spection trips last summer, how ever, disclosed little evidence of coyotes except along the Gila river. While a late summer visit north of Phoenix along the California cutoff of the Santa Fe railroad showed very few coyote signs, an unusual number of the animals were found there during November and stockmen and animal hunters reported more coyotes in that sec tion than for the last three years. o Mine Official Sues To Recover $20,000 Alleged Excess Tax PHOENIX—Suit to recover $20,- 000 alleged excess income tax from the United States government was filed iu the Phoenix division to the federal court by George Kingdom, superintendent of the United Verde Extension Mining company, who through his attorneys specifically names Lewis T. Carpenter, former ly collector of United States inter nal revenue for the Arizona dis trict, as defendant. The petition charges that the amount sought was “illegally and erroneously” assessed and collect ed for the government by the de fendant, and it is further charged that the collection, made under pro test of Kingdom, w*as in violation of the fifth amendment to the con stitution. o The Heaviest Snow In Several Years Falls In The Huachuca Area BISBEE—One of the heaviest snows to fall in the Huachuca mountain district in recent years blanketed the section last week. From four to seven inches of snow is said to have fallen on the low hills during the day while the fall in the higher mountains is thought to be much greater. More than a score of motorists were assisted to the top of the Bisbee divide after the storm by local garage men. The above photograph shows L. B.
