Heavy Rainfall Ends Drought In This Area By United Press International Twenty-four hours of sporadic showers : ended a long drought over Central Indiana today and put a big dent in the dry spell in other state areas. Indianapolis measured 2.13 inches, the .biggest rainfall in a single day since last March 8. Other central portions, hurt worst by a crop-damaging precipitation shortage dating back to mid-July,' received between 1 and 2 inches. Southern points north of • Evansville, including the tinder- dry forest lands of the rolling hill country where residents have been plagued by dangerous fires the past few days, generally got one-half to three- fourths of an inch of moisture. That wasn't enough to. put down the fire danger permanently this fall, but foresters indicated it was a good start. Confer on Fire Br.n As a result of the rain, which began around noon Sunday and continued off and on throughout the remainder of the day, during the night and after dawn this morning, state officials planned a mid-morning conference to decide whether to lift an emergency fire hazard ban on outdoor fires. Governor "Welsh . issued the ban late last week, prohibiting trash and leaf fires and banning the flipping of burning cigarettes from car windows. State Conservation , Department experts planned to recommend to Welsh whether to continue the ban until more rain falls. Weather observers indicated that the way the rain fell, stretched .out over a period of many hours, it soaked the soil much better than if the entire amount had been recorded in a relatively short time. There was little runoff. Other rain totals up to 7 a.m. today included Zionsville 1.85, Crawfordsville 1.78, Knightstown 1.74,' Terre Haute -1.65, Noblesville 1.60, Anderson 1.46, New Castle 1.44, Covington 1.30, Elwood 1.25, Spencer 1.05. Amounts Below Inch Amounts below- an inch included Muncie .96, Kokomo .98, Frankfort .98, Columbus .83, Bedford .77, Edwardsport .71, Lafaytte .71, Austin .56, Hartford City .65,- Portland .56, Shoals .51, Bluffton u55, Vincennes .49, Peru'.56, Winchester .56, Medora .68, Seymour .^5, Fort Wayne .43, Newberry .tO, South Bend .31, Evansville .17, Louisville .19 and Cincinnati .56. The Indianapolis fain was the first measurable precipitation since Oct. 18. It came after .a dry October in which only .64 of an inch fell, a September with only 1.27, and an August with only .68. More showers may fall today, tonight and Tuesday. Forecast^ said the showers would end this: afternoon in the central "portion of; the state, tonight in the south, and Tuesday in the north. Rainfall during the five day period ending Saturday was expected to total one-third to one- half inch.

It carried 22 passengers, three crewmen and Bonanza employes making the flight to Las Vegas as extras. Frustrated By Storm An all-night hunt for the plane was frustrated by the storm, darkness, a power failure, and disrupted communications. The fact the plane was silver and white further hampered searchers. - •' / A varied 3-to-10 inches of snow blanketed this city of 225,000 persons as dawn broke, fog lifted and the snow stopped,"enabling light planes and helicopters to take off to aid a ground party of about 100 persons in the search for the plane. During the night temperatures dipped into the low 30s and" many roads, including Interstate 15 were closed or nearly impassable. The search began shortly after 8:37 p.m., PST (11:37 p.m., EST) Sunday when the plane disappeared from the radar scope at McCarran Field. The plane was 8-to-9 miles from the airport when it disappeared from the scope and the pilot was making his final landing approach. The plane's path took it across the famed Las Vegas strip and over Arden. Shortly after Flight 114 disappeared, a n o ther Bonanza plane, flight 104, also ' bound for this gambling city from Phoenix, ran into the storm and had to land at nearby Hcl- lis Air. Force Base instead of McCarran Field. No emergency was involved and the passengers were taken to the airport by Air Force ground personnel. Searchers using jeeps, Clark County sheriff's squad cars and a helicopter fanned out through the area during the night looking for the missing plane. "We could have passed, the airplane from, the road and not seen it," said one searcher.
