Veteran Polish weather expert joins staff of Smithsonian Institution. Washington, D.C. March 14. With home, laboratory, and invaluable records of years presumably lost in the recent Polish War, Dr. Henryk Arctowski, of the University of Lvov, one of Poland's foremost scientists and former Antarctic explorer, has started at the Smithsonian Institution the monumental job of determining direct effects of changes in the Sun's radiation on weather conditions on Earth. Recognized in all countries as one of the greatest living authorities on world weather, Dr. Arctowski is continuing his studies in efforts to find relationships between solar conditions and rainfall, barometric pressure, etc., at various places on Earth. His earliest meteorlogical observation began as a young geologist on the Antarctic exploring ship Belgica in 1897-99. For release morning papers of March 18 - 40

Migratory field worker picking cotton in San Joaquin Valley, California. These pickers are paid seventy-five cents per hundred pounds of picked cotton. Strikers organizing under CIO union (Congress of Industrial Organizations) are demanding one dollar. A good male picker, in good cotton, under favorable weather conditions, can pick about two hundred pounds in a day's work

Observing work of the busy bee. E.L. Sechrist, associate agriculturist of the bee culture laboratory, U.S. Department of Agriculture, makes tests of how much work the bees accomplish under different weather conditions be checking the weight of the colonies. During a good honey flow under favorable weather conditions, a colony increases in weight as much as 20 pounds in a single day, 1/20/30

America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. A geologist, employed by one of the important U.S. oil companies, surveys, with the help of his "rod man" standing on the ridge in the background, a section of land to detect the presence of a possible oil deposit under the ground. "Hit or miss" methods of drilling for oil were discarded long ago in the United States. Today careful preliminary surveys and test borings precede the sinking of most oil wells. Geology experts of the important oil companies are able as a rule to read the surface of the ground accurately for the detection of oil deposits. The industry's efficient methods of finding oil have resulted in the enormous amounts of oil produced. According to a U.S. oil company official, the predictable U.S. oil total for the year 1944 will be 1,601,250,000 barrels, a great part of which will supply the armed forces of the United Nations
