Every levee but on protecting the city proper was washed out. Parts of West Terre Haute were island seas of rooftops and about 6,000 persons moved lo higher parts of the city. In Illinois, Red Cross relief workers cared for 2,000 of the 10.000 homeless, working in 20 counties. Wingate said 500 houses were damaged and 50,000 acres of crops Were dcslroyd. Muskogee, Okla., May 20 —(/P)— A record • shattering 49 - foot crest on the Arkansas river was forecast today as this raging stream and its tributaries converted eastern Oklahoma into a vast inland sea with thousands homeless and scores of communities isolated. The Grand River dam braced its giant concrete shoulders against the mighty flood and with 23 of its 42 gates opened managed to stabilize the lake level at 754.58 feet. Elvalion of the dam's top is 755 fct. : But it still was pouring 303-000 feet of water a second on down the Grand river toward the menaced Chouteau ordnance works which were at a standstill and backing water higher into isolated Miami, at the northern extremity of its reservoir. Camp Gruber once more called out its soldiers lo evacuate approximately 1,000 residents at Fort Gibson and to clear 700 persons from Webbers Falls, farther down the stream. Only a few M.P.'s patrolled de- serled Fort Gibson, which will be flooded when the full tide of unleashed waters of Grand Dam hit. A few business men watched over their stocks at Webbers Falls. An airplane survey showed that by the Verdigris river with only the tops of stores and houses peeping above the tide. The aerial sweep uncovered thousands of farm homes with water lapping at roofs, with occasionally farmers in boats trying to salvage what they could from the disastrous overflow. Hundreds of stalled automobiles were noticed on flooded roads. Bartlesville was surrounded on three sides by the Cane river, and water edged toward the grounds of the new high school building on the south side. Oil wells and pump stations around Nowata were under water. The new crest dwarfed last floods that took seven HVes sum., left 19 persons missing.

Jap Reporter (Continued From Page One) away most of the landing barges hat came into Holtz Bay. "Another large force of enemy warships appeared off Massacre Bny later and opened up a heavy barrage." The Japanese said that under cover of this fire "2 and possible 28 large landing craft drove into the bay" but that concentrated fire from shore defenses drove them back. The Japanese reporter asserted 10 of the boats wore blasted out of the water and several others were damaged. "However, later in the morning, the weather cleared up sufficiently to permit enemy aircraft to add their support lo the landing forces and finally in the afternoon the Americans were able to put ashore a party of troops," the boradcast continued. "Japanese machine - gun emplacements and eunposls along the beach and in ridges ripped a deadly cross fire through the enemy ranks, but having gained a beachhead on both Holtz and Massacre Bays the enemy succeeded in landing strong reinforcements, though lie suffered extremely heavy losses in the operation." The Japanese reporter asserted that another American landing attempt with 250 men at 7 o'clock that night at Salana Bay was ambushed. "The following day heavy fighting continued along the shores of Holtx and Massacre Bays," the report continued. "The Japanese maintained their positions in the ridges overlooking the beaches and the Americans driving in to attack were repulsed repeatedly with costly losses.
