Man, what a repair job. It types like a new one now.” Yes, Aggies, we can put your typewriter in perfect operating condition at a minimum of cost to you.

Artificial Rain Is Big Gamble Says Physicist Artificial I’ainmaking is “a gam ble,” Dr. James E. McDonald, as sociate director of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Uni versity of Arizona, told members of the Second Annual “Water for Texas” Conference yesterday in the MSC. Dr. McDonald was speaking on the increasing of rain ai’tificially at the 11:30 a.m. session of the Conference. “If you’re desperate and have to do something, cloud seeding may be the answer, but it is still a gamble,” he says. The cloud physicist told his aud ience that years of research and lots of money will have to go into finding the answers to the ques tion about artificial rainmaking. He concedes that it is possible, under certain conditions, to in crease rainfall, but maintains that despite 10 years of intensive re search “we still don’t have the answers.” Dr. McDonald also appealed for a widespread educational effort on the pai*t of the press, radio and television stations to disseminate only factual information on the subject to the public.
