Cincinnati, Dec. 29 — The hot dry seasons of the past few years have caused rapid disintegration of glaciers in Glacier National Park, Montana, Prof W. G. Waterman of Northwestern University declared in an address before the Geological section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Sperry Glacier has lost one-quarter to two-thirds of its ice in the past 18 years, he said. If this rapid retreat continues the glacier would disappear in 25 years, but he expressed the opinion that the long dry seasons of the past few years are over with probabilities of a lessening in the retreat.
