There were numerous light showers near Greeley Friday but there was no rain in the city. Showers were reported directly east of Eaton, in the upper end pf Pleasant Valley and at Cornish and Osgood. Showers and thunderstorms were also indicated in far eastern and northeastern Weld. There was a rise in the Poudre r i \ r r late Friday afternoon but rolhng approaching flood stage. The rise was due to snow water started by Thursday's extreme brat, reaching the city. It comfortably filled the Poudre c h a n n e l which had been nearly dry hrr» earlier Friday. All the big Poudre ditches have been running nearly full and this has kept the river flow at Greeley w a y down. Crops hav* made remarkable growth in Weld County during the week. This applies to tugar beets, early potatoes, beans, corn and small grain crops. Farmers say some fields are showing lack of ritrorcn and attribute this to the frequent and heavy rains.

Fellows said Saturday. Fellows said no unsafe samples of water have been found by the county health department in its sampling of the city's water supply. Fellows' report on the safely of the water was confirmed by Glenn E. Paul, sanitarian *ef the county health department, who said the department lefts five samples of the city's water every week and that no unsafe samples have been found. Fellows expressed belief the water had been no more cloudy this rear than it is every spring but that it has been cloudy this year over a longer period, due to the heavy spring runoff from the mountains beinz lonccr this year. . He explained the cloudiness resulted from stain from leaves and other vegetation on t h e ground picked up by the water during runoff periods. All the city's water Is filtered. Despite this. Fellows observed, the city every year receives complaints about foreign matter, including worms, In ihe wstcr. These complaints have not been substantiated upon inspection by the water de^ partmcnt, he said.

By agreement, an inter-governmental committee was established to "consider future adjustments in the relationships between the United Slates and Japan adequate to meet the needs and aspirations of Ihe peoples of both countries."
