THE WEATHER RAIN WAS IN STORE TODAY for flood-plagued Kansas but the weather appeared good elsewhere in the nation. Forecasters predicted thundershowers in Kansas, virtually in the wake of a howling storm which whipped the southeastern part of the state yesterday and smashed windows, uprooted trees and disrupted power and communication services in five cities. The state's troubles can partly be laid to a month of wet weather which has sent rivers out of their banks, flooded farm and city areas and driven thousands of persons from their homes. Waters of some of these swollen rivers were receding today, " but flood conditions along 130 miles of the aKnsas— the state's largest river—were still considered critical. WARM. HUMID WEATHER with a few widely scattered thundershowers continued today in the Gulf states northward to the Ohio and to southern New England. Fair and cooler weather was pushed eastward over the Great Lakes region. Warm southernly winds brought numerous thundershowers to the plains states and eastern Rockies. West of the Rockies, it is fair and warm, ejjcept in the extreme north where cooler weather prevails. Early morning temperatures included Chicago 57, Green Bay, Wis. 48, Omaha 68, Denver 64, Seattle 58, Los Angeles 61, Phoenix, Ariz. 75, St. Louis 68, Boston 73. Miami 77. U.S. KEEPING ATOMIC BOMB PLANES READY «CMitlnu«d tram Pam* Omi of writing a report for the Senate. Likely there will be at least two reports—one of majority views and one of minority views. Two members predicted, however, that no military strategy recommendations would come from the committees. That would mean, in effect, leaving it to the country to decide whether MacArthur was right or wrong in his proposals for bombing and other blows at Red China. On his return from the Far East bombing command last January O'Donnell said the U. S. would be "very effective with the ultimate weapon" — the A-bomb — against Red China.
