Elsewhere: Selma, Ala.: The city, council Friday: endorsed a statement by Alabama business leaders ailing for compliance with the civil rights law. . * Jackson, Miss.: About 30 out- of-state college students, designated j as the "Easter carpenters," j were to 5 spend their Easter vacations helping rebuild burned Negro churches around the state.

However, he said, it was evident many people simply failed to act on the information available to them. He said that at Dunlap, Ind., where 50 persons were killed, no bodies were fiund in base ments. One of the customary procecdures in preparing for tornadoes is to take cover in a sheltered area such as a basement. Lieb said two factors contributed to the enormity of the storms, the third worst tornado disaster in history. "One, it happened in a populated area," he said. "And two, it happened on a weekend;" Roy L. Fpx of the Kansas City weather bureau where the national storm forecast center is located, said the fact it was so early in the season also might have been a psychological factor. -., "People thought it was too cold," he said. "There was snow on the ground in some places and people think you don't have tornadoes when it's that cold." Russiaville (Continued from page 1) Russiaville, where nearly ev -J ery building was destroyed or heavily damaged, was expected to be the scene of a serious traffic jam.

PAUL, Minn. (UPD—The Mississippi, surging 23 feet above its normal depth, flooded towns along a 600-mile stretch in five states today and slowly inched - toward its mightiest crest in history. A northern cold snap and an inch of snow Friday night and early today slowed spring thaws and delayed a record 27- foot crest here until Tuesday, giving the angry river more time to batter, soak and undermine makeshift dikes. | People by the thousands have fled the Mississippi shoreline's walled cities as waves and ice washed over and through their crude sand and earthen bulwarks. | Thousands of exhausted workers—city men, farmers, youngsters and prisoners—piled sandbags on levees and plugged leaks from near the Misiippi headwater in nor.thesn I Minnesota to Hannibal, Mo.—nearly 600 miles. ' 31,000 Homeless The raging river i has driven more than 31,000 persons from their homes in i Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri. States of emergency exist in St. Paul-Minneapolis and scattered spots down to nortneastern Missouri. At least 12 persons nave died in -Midwest floods! The Red Cross said 205 have been hurt, 14 homes destroyed, 589 houses have suffered major damage 3,105 minor damage, and many trailers have been wrecked. Minnesota, hardest hit so far, had 10 dead and Gov. Karl Rolvaag said "very preliminary estimates" show more than $36 million damage. More than 18, 000 Minnesotans have fled their hemes, the Red Cross said. Back-Up Wall In flood-battered St. Paul Mayor George Vavoulis, working almost around the clock called on workers to build £ block-long backup sand wall behind a leaky dike. | "We don't sleep," he said. "We just work." The Minnesota capital'sdown- town airport and railroad station were flooded, 800 persons were oht of their homes, low land industries evacuated, and flooded-out post office workers moved to other - uarters and sorted mail by gas light.

Viet General Wants Marines Used on Offences DA NANG, Viet Nam (UPI)— The South Vietnamese general whose troops stand guard along the North Vietnamese border said Friday night he hopes the U.S. Marinesl soon will carry the war to the Communist enemy. . :' . Brig. Gen. Nguyen Chanh Thi, whose I Corps controls the five provinces nearest to Red- held North Viet . Nam, told newsmen "I I like the Marines, and I'd very! much like to see them go on the offensive." There are indications that a good many <if the 8.000 Marines now on duty in South Viet Nam hare Thi's hopes. Their mission so far las been purely defensive, and many have shown signs of r :stiveness in their static role. Thi said many Communists are now slipping .directly across the border] from North r Viet Nam to South Viet Nam now that their {"end run" route through Labs has largely been blocked by JU.S. air raids. In Friday's heavy attack on Red-held territory, U.S. Navy and Air Force planes knocked out at least five bridges on North Viet Nam's Route 12, segmenting the straetgic highway to Laos. Thi estimated that as many as 500 Communists may have slipped into South Viet Nam recently through the narrow no- man's - land.along the North Vietnamese border. . This area has been free so far from American air strikes. The Vietnamese general said he thinks the vast increase of American forces in his region had been welcomed by the people of this airbase town and of the nearby ciiy of Hue, OPENS EASTER SUNDAY AT THE DIANA THEATRE Glenn Ford, attempting to tame a rambunctious bronco, bites the dust-in one of the action-filled moments of Metro-Goldwyn- Mayer's hilarious modern-day western, "The Rounders."

Reunions Held At Iron Wall For Easter BERLIN (UPI)—Easter season reunions were held on both sides of the Berlin wall today as West Germans thronged to the divided city while many West Berliners went visaing in the Communist Zone. On Good Friday, almost 100,000 West, Berliners streamed oast armed guards into East Berlin to see friends and relatives trapped behind the wall. At 8 a.m. today, another 10,000 persons had passed through the guarded crossing points into the Soviet sector. And tens of thousands of West Germans crowded trains, planes and rars into West Berlin. The Communists opened the wall last Monday to permit west-to-east traffic, but they [will not allow any East Berliners to visit the West for fear they would not return.
