AFTER THE RAIN, THE SUN — Ottawans were treated to the splendor only nature creates late yesterday when the sun peaked now and then from behind clouds to glorify rain-washed streets. The sun turned wet power lines along East Logan to golden thread almost too bright to look upon. But man's shortcomings with black -and-white photography pictures them only white and enlarged; (Herald Photo) Fear More Rain In Flooded Area By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wet weather—rain, sleet and| snow—spread across wide areas in the central part of the nation today and heavy rains appeared headed for the flood-stricken sections of the Ohio and Cumberland river valleys. Forecasters said from two to three inches of rain may hit areas in the flood belt in Kentucky. Rains and thunderstorms were expected to extend from the upper and middle Mississippi Valley eastward through the Ohio Valley into the northern and middle Atlantic states. A storm which developed in the southern Rockies extended into extreme northeastern Missouri during the night and headed northeastward. More rain fell from the Ohio Valley northwestward through most of Iowa, with heavy downpours from eastern Iowa into northern Illinois. Showers and thunderstorms dampened areas from eastern Texas northward and northeastward into Iowa Illinois and Indiana. A belt of freezing rain pelted sections from southern Wisconsin into southern Minnesota while northward snow fell from most of Wisconsin westward into the east- rn Dakotas. Five inches of snow ell in a six-hour period in Huron, D. New floods broke out in sections f the Ohio River valley over the weekend, the second to hit the re- 'ion within a week. Heaviest flooding in the last reek has been in Kentucky, West 'irginia and Virginia. However, loodmg also has hit areas in New fork State, Indiana, western Pen- ylvania, Minnesota, Wisconsin, linois and Iowa. Outside the major wet belt, the nly precipitation was in the acific Northwest which reported Today In Washington WASHINGTON (AP) - In the news from Washington: SILVER LINING: Despite the gloomy unemployment statistics, which rose again in February, the government reports there is a bright side in the over-all job picture. Harold Goldstein of the Labor Department pointed Monday to some February data which he said reflected new employment strength: Manufacturing employment remained at 16.5 million, thus breaking a seven-month decline. Non-farm payroll employment also remained practically unchanged, at 54.8 million, although a 200,000 decline is .usual in February. At nearly a million above last year, non-farm employment was at a high for the month. The figures given out by the department Monday were by elab- boration of the February total announced earlier. They showed employment up 423,000 to 66,358,000 with unemployment up 246,000 to 4,918,000. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose to 6.1 per cent in February. GO FOR BROKE: Rocket scientist Wernher von Braun says any cuts in funds for the man-to-moon program—which he described as already "down to the lean meat" —would short-circuit its timetable. "Our program can most definitely not stand a 10 per cent cut without seriously, affecting the schedule," he told a House space subcommittee Monday. "It would be very questionable if the President's statement of putting a man on the moon and bringing him back alive this decade could be met." "Even a 5 per cent cut," he added, would "undoubtedly cause some slippage." The space budget request for $5.7 billion for the coming fiscal year "requires the occasional cut ting of corners," he said, but il that level of spending is maintained the goal can be reached MAIL HAZARDS: Postal officials have threatened to ask Congress for a law to restrict the mailing of sample razor blades, bleaches and medicines because of the danger to children. Postmaster General J. Edward Day said Monday he has received reports of children being injured >y such items delivered in the mails and appealed to advertising agencies and large mailers to lelp solve the problem. MAKING IT OFFICIAL: The louse has approved and sent to the Senate a bill to make the 50- star flag official.
