"We anticipate no major break said one of the engineers. "We are merely preparing to do our best toward preventing one." The engineers will definitely not "take over" things, said one of the superiors. They are here to work in complete cooperation with lonl I authorities and supervisors. Their presence here is just one of Uncle Sam's thousand-mile levee protection and precaution moves. Bases will be established from Cairo to the Gulf. Cariithersville is one of the bases: Sandbags Arriving; "There are levee men here' who arc probably inors familiar with this section than we," stated an engineer. "We arc ready to work with those fcl'ows. and ask the thorough cooperation of all." A quarter boat was cxoected today.

At 8 a.m. todas it rtcod at 42.9!i feet. The record here is 44 feet, established in 1013 The predicted crest of the present flood is almost 50 feet.

' ; •Some mild concern was evldcn over the "boil section" just north of Carulhersville, but no alarm was expressed. 1 The levee crossings in this city have been sandbagged. The water is still about 8',4 feet, below the top of the seawall protecting the city. Old timers arc" not worried. A few residents are leaving, but tiler are mostly • newcomers, unfamiliar with the itver, and who have been frightened by falss radio broadcasts. No lives have been lost in the flcod here but the loss of livestock will be heavy. Hundreds of refugees have been saved from low outlying sections, mostly along the Mississippi, on the Tennessee side. Need Housing for Refugees .Today, local relief authorities expressed satisfaction at the present relief situation, except In regard to housing conditions. "There arc .not enough bui|dings with sanitation facilities." ' they said. "Bedding and clothing are sufficient, but we 'must have more buildings with heating and sanitation facilities." Churches have been converted info emergency hospitals. There are in Caruthersville only some 30 mild %• cases, such as Wluenz'a and colitis, the latter among children. Over the country are another estimated hundred cases of similar illnesses.
