Robert Spatin, 17, of Oj»dcn. was swept rtown the turbulent Ogden River after a rubber raft capsized. Residents of Provo Canyon were (old to abandon Iheii' homes as the Provo River swirlerl over the highway nl Vivian Park to a depth of two feel. Flood experts said the families probably would be Isolated if ilioy remained In their canyon homes, More than 40 families have been left homeless in Weber Csmyon and nearly 1..500 families have been driven out by flood waters in Salt Lake City. The Weber River smashed a dike and covered the junction of U.S. Highways 3D nnd BO at the mouth of Weber Canyon. Only the rooftops and upper stories of a cluster ol business onrt residential buildings are visible above the water. And (he' highest crest on the Weber is not expected for several days. In Salt Lake City, diversion gates were closed on the Jordan River. This turned the full forrp of the runoff from Big Cotionwood and Little Cottonwood Creeks nnd Utah lake into the Surplus Canal. The canal empties into the Great Salt Lake which also is at n record level. Another weather threat was poised Tuesday. A shift in ground winds is expected to carry warm blasts northward from the'Arizona deserts where temperatures now are topping 100 degrees. This heat wave would accelerate the already speedy melting of snows in the Wasatch Mountains, which has been the cause of Utah's worst flood crisis in history. POLITICS (Continued from Page 1) tlon. New Mexico voters chose nominees for governor. Senator and Congressmen. National convention delegates won't be selected until later. In Maryland. Kefauver drew 1H.173 votes to 39,746 for a ballot nonetity called "uninstructed delegation," on the basis of returns from i,igo of 1,401 polling places. The victory apparently pledged all IS of Maryland's convention votes to Kefauver, at least for the first ballot. Favorite Son Vole Among Maryland Hepublicans, the election apparently gave "favorite son" Gov. Theodore McKel- don control, for (he first ballot of the 24 GOP votes. McKeldin is an Eisenhower supporter, In Maryland's race for Senate nomination, winners were Republican Rep. j. Glenn Beall and Democrat George P. Mahoney, state national conimitteeman. Politics elsewhere: Gov. Earl Warren of California, in a speech at Medford. Ore., spoke out against "backbiting" among TOP candidates. Launching his bid for Oregon's 18 convention votes in (he May 16 election, Warren said he will say nothing against five other • Republican nominee- candidates entered. Eisenhower backers pushed an all-out campaign for Rhode Island's eight GOP delegates, to be picked al a slate convention in Providence next Monday. A committee had suggested giving five to Eisenhower, two to Taft and leaving one uncommitted, Tafi people were for it, but Elsenhower forces said anything less Ihan eight for the general "would fail to reflect Republican sentiment here." In Washington. Lt. Gen. (Ret) Albert Wedemeyer said Gen. Douglas MacArthur has thrown his support to Taft. Wedemeyer lold a news conference MCArthur hnri urged him to accept chairmanship of a national Taft-for-Presidcnl citizens' committee "for the good Here's a Way To Get More Gas Mileage EVANSTOM,' III. tfn _ Want to set more mileage out of ycur dwindling gasoline supply? A Northwestern University professor has five timely lips lor motorists who have found gasoline hard lo get as a result of the oil strike. Edward P. Oberl. professor o[ mechanical engineering at Noilh- western'.s Technological Institute, says tests in the university's internal combustion engine laboratories show you ... get more mileage if you: 1. Avoid pushing the accelerator petal down to the floor. The average motorist wastes at least, three miles a gallon by fast starts. Ob- eii says. 2. Hold your speed down lo 40 miles an hour or less. This can save four miles per gallon or more, he says. 3. Keep the accelerator petal in one position as much as possible, because nervous "gunning" of the throttle waste gas. 4. If ycur car doesn't have an automatic choke, push the choke back after startinR. 5. Shift from first into third gear, skipping second. This is aimed at getting the lowest possible engine speed as soon as possible after starting and may save another two or three miles a gallon, Obert states.
