The levees had been .smashed by* three previous floods in as many ! weeks. Engineers frankly considered their task of holding the new flood back as hopeless. Predictions of new rain storms threatened more heartbreak and misery for the flood areas today. The Weather Bureau said tliiin- dcrshowers would burst over Missouri tonight and tomorrow, it also forecast scattered Ihundcrsho-.iers over Kansas for Ihc next three days. Engineers estimated that 242.01)") acres of so-called "protected" bottomlands had been flooded by previous dike lailures along the Missouri. Another 700.000 acres of unprotected laud were under water also. The record flood waters were roll- | ing down the tributaries of North Central Kansas to Jam into the already choked valley of the Mis- I sour!. Engineers watched closely, fearing that the crests of the tributaries would hit the Missouri at the same time llic "main stem" crest was passing their mouths. t \e crest was due lo pass Kansas on Thursday at a .stage of 28.5 feet. &pe water rose to' 10.4G feet at' St. Joseph, Mo., and lapped near the top of the Rosccriuis Airfield levee, which was holding despite engineers' predictions that the new crest would wash it out. Volunteers lost their 48-hour battle to save a levcc that stretched for llirce-ciunrtci's of a mile alon;; the east edge of Hamburg, fa. The levee cracked after the Nishnabot- ' na 'River hit loose dirt that harl been piled on tlic dike by heavy' machines. The DCS Moines River was expected to top its high 1944 crest as it surged toward DCS Moines. The Weather Bureau predicted .severe floods between Jefferson, la,, and DCS Moines and between Boone, la., and I>es Moines. Ttic river was exacted to hit a crest of 25 feet at Des Mcines tomorrow.
