He Gets Paid for Living in a Fog
I The more befogged Paul B. Wldlieska of Hollywood, Calif., gets, the
more money he makes. As fog expert for Sam Goldwyn studios, his job
is to “build” all types of fogs, from the "pea-soups" of London to the
hlgh-rlding haze of San Francisco, whatever a current picture may re
quire. A native of Budapest, he began his Hollywood career In 1914 as
a cabinet-maker. On a set one day an old-type fog of smoke and am
monia gases made his throat ache and his eyes water. As a result, he
devised the present method—ordinary mineral oil, forced through an
aperture under high pressure with a mixture of compressed air. By heat
ng, he can control the height to which his fogs will rise.

Tree* and Rainfall
There Is much controversy over
the question whether trees and other
heavy vegetation bring rain or not.
A great number of forcible points
are cited both for and against this
question. But we cannot help noting
with Interest a report from the Sov
iet government. In Russia a con
siderable area was planted with
trees In 50 foot strips 700 feet apart.
Rainfall In the area of these strips
was carefully checked "gainst rain
fall In surrounding untreed areas.
The results were astonishing. The
Increase In rainfall In the area bor
dered by the forest strips was from
13 per cent to 27.2 per cent. In the
treed areas the evaporation between
the strips was from 20 to 35 per
cent less thnn In the open.
