By LARKV HAM* KANSAS CITY M— Now rain, sonic of It heavy, sharpened tlio fears of Hood lighters along Ihe raging Missouri River today. Major dikes held at critical spots. And the experts clung to (heir prediction that Kansas City, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo., would be .safe. As the muddy sen broadened in the lowlands, Missouri Oov, Forrest Smith proclaimed a flood emergency and asked President Truman to allot emergency federal funds to his home state. Along the upper Mississippi, another record flood boiled seaward. At, Wis., weatherman A. D. Sanlftl said, "The worst of it is over now." A little rain fell there but not enough to affect the river. At Lansing, la,. In the extreme Northeastern corner of the state, the peak is set for 18.1—a record— but .7 fcot lower than predicted earlier. The focus of the rainfall Jitters was at Kansas City, where prolonged downpours turned the Kaw (Kansas; River into a monster last July. It flooded the rich industrial bottomlands as it raged into the Missouri here. This time, Army Engineers say the levees have been rcbuLH to withstand n flood of -103 feet. The expected crest was 29 tret but heavy general rain would force that upward. E. C. Corktll, Wenlhor Bureau river forecaster, said one - Inch rains were possible in a wide area around the flood ?.one. That might send the river at Kansas City tip to 31 feet. More showers were forecast for tomorrow and if they, too, .should average an inch, the crest mighi reach 33 or 34 feet by Friday. Upstream nt Leavenworlh. Kan. n small army of men toiled through the night nt beleaguered Shermar Air Force Field. Dut the impel 1 illed dikes continued to hold. During the night, life-jacketed of fleers from the Army's Commam and General Staff School at Ft Leaven worth did patrol duty atoj tlie slippery dike. They worked In pairs. They w told to fire their signal pistols and run for their lives if they spottec [ a major break. Yae 3^-miJlion-dolJnr Meld slopes downward about seven feet in the mile from the north to the south edge. If the north dike—taking the ull force of the Missouri's tr«- n end ous weight—gave way, the eld would be a boiling churning rapids. The Missouri reached Us predicted crest of 26.4 feet at St. Joseph, Mo., last night but the new storms kept flood workers on edge. Two big agricultural levees were reported in critical condition near there. As the flood powered on downstream, Army Engineers estimated 380,000 acres of land were inundated from Rulo In Southeastern Nebraska to the mouth near St. Charles, Mo., above St, Louis.

Swk Kearnlnci Rrttorrd Bray said the Immediate purpose of the new rates Is to restore (he company's Arkansas earnings which have been lost through the Increasing costs of providing telephone service since the period covered by the last rate case. Bray said the company's last rate case, which was filed with the Public Service Commission in August, 1950, and passed upon recently by the supreme Court, was based on wages, taxes, and costs prevailing In the last quarter of 1949 and the first nine months of 1950. Since then, wages have Increased about a million dollars a year, another half million dollars is needed annually to offset tax increases, and prices of materials have risen substantially, he said. As a result of these increased costs. Bray said, Intrastate earnings In Arkaasas have dropped to less than four per cent. Telephone wages were' Increased by about 10 per cent last June as a result of collective bargaining, Rray said, adding about a million dollars to the cost of providing telephone service In Arkansas, of i w »'cr company, is to consist of three (Continued from Page 1) be passed the uirx night It Is proposed.) Under the terms of the ordinance passed last night, referendum petitions must be filed with the city clerk within 30 days after passage 'of the measure upon which (he referendum Is sought. Previously, a M-day period was given. If a referendum petition is filed within the required 30 days, a special election U ordered and if the ordinance is defeated at the polls, it is "expunged from the files" of City Council. Alderman L. G. Nash offered the proposed ordinance and Alderman John Caudill moved the rules be suspended and it be placed on third reading. The ordinance was passed unanimously. Mr. Nash offered and moved for the adoption of a resolution asking civic clubs to nominate members of a waterworks commission to servo "if, and as soon as, the city owns the water system." To llavB .1 Members The commission, which cannot be created unless the City buys the nearly S700.000 applies to !n- men to for each official meeting they attend, hut not more than »2SO in any one year. Farris Simon, 120 West D»vl», offered to lend the city whatever loney would be necessary to widen First Street at Main In order to lake out a "jog" which causes i traffic bottleneck at that Intersection, Aldermr.n Jesse white said. The city could take two or thre« years lo pay back the money tnd he wouldn't charge any interest. Mr. Simon said.
