Sky By Planes
^ AUSTIN, Nov. 12 CU.R:—-An Ait
Force electronics expert proposed
Thursday that jet planes, armed
with guided missiles,'be used to
destroy tornadoes in the making
The idea was advanced at art in-
terna'^onal meeting of meteorology
and electronics scientists by Cbf.
Rollins H. Mayer of the Air Force
missile test center, Patrick AFB.
Rollins said the idea of using
explosives;: to destroy the force ol
i tornado was first suggested mo ft
.han 60 year ago;.!:.;
He proposed a "national tornado-
daniage-prevention net," Ln a
speech before a meeting of the
American Meteorological Society
aitd four other scientific organiza-
tions at the Universit yof Texas.
"The type of net 1 have in mini:
would consist of mobile anti-tor-
nado stations, assembled at air-
ports near large cities in. the coun-
try where tornadoes might be ex-
pected. The complete coverage of
the United States," he explained,
"would be costly if not impracti-
"However, those locations where
large populations are concentrated
could be covered. Into the net
would be fed tornado forecasts,
radar detection, warning and track-
"Jet planes with tornado destruc-
tion missiles could be standing by,'"
he said, "to destroy tornadoes be-
fore they destroy ui.".
"I have Been asked," Mayer said,
"What about the people below ii
you detonate a missile in a tor-
'Couldn't Be Worse Off'
"Actually," he continued, "any-
one caught in a tornado can't be
worse off. Of course every effort
would be made to destroy the tor-
nado before it reaches a densely
populated area. A missile could not
be used until its highest unfailing
reliability had been; established.
The possibility of preventing dam-
age to many would outweigh the
possibility of causing damage to a

and a brim-full' box of Danish pas-
try. . "
The 69-year-old former Presi-
dent emerged affable- and smiling
from, his Waldorf Towers apart-
ment shortly after 7 a., m. and got
into trouble right away. He trip-
ped over a TV cameraman's cable
and nearly fell1.
"I don't think IV seen such a
to-do since you boys have been in
the: business," he said, still .smil-
ing and disentangling his foot
from the cable.
Then, accompanied by Edward
•Jacobson of Kansas City, Mo., his
former partner in a haberdashery
business, Mr. Truman started off
at a brisk pace for a IT-block
walk through the quiet streets of
city. More than, a hua-
dred admirers, newsmen,, news-
reel and television, cameramen sur-
ged along behind, nearty engulf-
ing Mr. Truman and his compan-
ion at times.
At the corner of 53nd Street and
Park Avenue, two blocks from tha
Waldorf the crowd Jostled the
former President so hard he
quickened his pace, spun around'
and said still with a smile:
"•Now you all just ask me what ;
questions you have right here and
then we'll string out two-by-two
and finish the walk. I think it will
do you all. a lot of good."
Laymen Have Bay
Reporters and radiomen made a
valiant try, but the lavmen were
having their day too. Their voices
rose up in a chorus:
"How're ya, Harry ?"
"Gonna give 'em hell, .Barry*"
"We're with, you, Mr. Truman*
don't forget that."
