Concerted efforts by the cn- jre populations of some towns. and by elementary, high school a n d college students at others, had fought back the worst of the looding. In Minnesota and the Dakn- tas. the flood crest had passed, and evacuated residents includ- :ng more than 12.000 in Minot, ^.D.. waited for the water to jrain away so they could return home. In Neche. N.D., on one of the Tew rivers still rising--the Pcm- bina -workers reinforced crumbling dikes. UNDER CONTROL La Crosse, Wis. official?, said the situation was under control, and Mayor Warren Lovcland said "Our dikes are so strong and so secure \ve should have no more trouble unless we get a real had storm." Downstream nt Prairie du Chicn. the riverside section of the community of 5,800 was under several feet of water and residents were evacuated. The U.S. 18 highway bridge to Mar quetto, Town, with an approach under about two feet of swirling water, was closed to all but high-wheeled traffic. Along Iowa, Illinois and Missouri, the Mississippi rose w i t h a major crest still to come. St. Louis, n few miles downstream of the junction of the Mississippi with the water swollen Missouri, expected a crrst of 32 f e e t -- I wo feet over flood stage -- by Wednesday. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the? crest would not cause extensive damage around St. Louis or points south Waters covered a wharf section of St. Louis and farm land near Alton. III., but little damage was reported. At East Dubuque. 111., in the extreme northwestern corner of .he state, a flood warning horn was installed to alert outlying residents if pumps behind the dikes cannot handle the heavy ·ain waters. Downstream at the Quad Cites _ Moline and Rock Island, III., and Davenport and Betten dorf, Iowa -- high schoolers helped strengthen dikes in preparation for the crest expected next week. In Andalusia. 111.. 15 m i l e s south of Moline. the whole town of 1.100 turned out to help build a two mile-long dike to protect the community from the Mississippi. The residents expected to complete the 15-foot-lall dike by tonight. . People from neighboring towns brought in food anc equipment while the women of the village manned Andalusia's fire station. RIVER WATCH Elsewhere around the country. Eastern and Southern states were keeping a watchfu. eve nn rising rivers and streams. In New England, a cold snap plowed the snow melt, relieving loud pressures in Vermont Jew Hampshire and Maine. Possible heavy showers pre dieted for today presented some flooding danger, and minor low- and flooding was expected to continue along the Connecticut iiver for several days. Minor overflows were reported in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida, with 'armers moving livestock to ligher ground along the Savan nah River in Georgia and the Apalachicola in Florida. Flood threats were also posed by the Sentee. Tombigbee Pearl and Big Black rivers, in the South and the Sulphur, Sa bine and lower Trinity rivers in Texas.
