The last measurable amounts were the .M inch ind the .02 inch recorded by the city engineer's staff on July 20 and July 19, respectively. The situation Isn't serious—yet, Mr. Galipeau said, The level of the reservoirs may have dropped a bit and Broad Brook, the primary supply for about 75 percent of the W«ter Department's 4,000-odd customers, has been drying up at midmorning lor a number of weeks now. But Mr. Galipeau said he is mainly interested in preserving the water in Mt. Williams Reservoir, which takes over whenever Broad Brook runs dry. Broad Brook has been drying up during the day but building up and supplying water at nighl. His main worry now: Saving water for August and September, tradilionallly the driest months here and when droughts usually hit North Adams. Mt. Williams' capacity is about 200 million gallons. Its surface has dropped two feet, 11 inches, according to a measurement taken by Mr. Galipeau last night.

Getting Serious Charles F. Shelnut, commissioner of agriculture for Massachusetts, said. "The draught is gel- ting serious now. Farm ponds are drying and farmers will probably have to stop using municipal water supplies for irrigation. "The effect will be felt on the apple—not in the amount of production but in the small size ot apples. If this continues for another few days the loss may rifc into $1 million or more." Maine agriculture Commission- p er Erion L. Newdick said th« state's $3 million blueberry crop is rapidly drying up and apple orchards in central and southern Maine are suffering. Newdick predicted apples and their by-products will probably be higher in price when harvested.
