TEU IT* [STREETS IN ADAMS DAMAGED BY RAW [phi Ones Washed, Other Flooded PURING DOWNPOUR |Pne Unusual Feature Fact That No Rain Fel South of Commercia St Bridge. Bsver&l dirt streets were extensive tf damaged and some of the prlnclpa (treat* were flooded in a torrential ntioitona which struck this town •hortly after 1 o'clock yesterday tttemoon. Although the storni lastei lad than an hour, the rain was un msually heavy and In some coses < crop* In gardens were laid low bu "atone back" quickly after the sun Mrn« out. An unusual feature of Uii •term was the fact that south of the Commercial street bridge, there was not a drop of rain while North Ad- inu was rainless. The center of the town seemed to bear the brunt of th« storm. Superintendent of Streets Anthony flzurelc said that Forest Park avenue, Maple street and East stree' were badly washed, while sand and gravel from the streets bordering Bummer street were washed down or the latter street, filling.manholes and catoh basins. Town employes were placed at work as soon as the rain 'aided and In a short time had t of the debris cleaned up. A large pool of water formed at the corner of Columbia and Friend •treets, as usually is the cose during heavy rainstorms, and children ol that section donned bathing suits and played In the \water Jo'yfully until It finally receded Into the catch basing. Automobiles splashed through Uie pool throwing water in all directions. The rain was welcomed by the townspeople as It brought considerable relief from the heat and drought.

The state bank examiners, who ro now on the ninth day of their Ask of going over the books of the outh Adams bank, do not yet know ow much longer will be required to omplctc the work, it was said today, three state auditors who are ex- mlnlng the town treasurer's books re likewise unaware of how much me will be required to make a horough examination of the ac- ounts. It was stated today that It is mpossibie to state Just now what le town treasurer's books show as ic auditors are now preparing to stain a book balance that can be ompared with an actual balance In he accounts. Many Rumors as to Absence Meanwhile speculation was rife to^ ay as to the probable whereabouts Mr. Walpole during the time of s absence, dating from a week ago onday morning when he disappeared a short time after state bank examiners had made an unannounced visit, their first In 18 months. Although two warrants were Issued i for the missing banker and a description of him together with the request that he be arrested was sent by teletype to state police throughout Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut no Information about, him was received by either the Adams or the state police until his reappearance In Adams yesterday. Close friends of Mr. Wftlpo'e who have talked with him since yesterday, declare he has not said where he was during the post week. The opinion that appears to be entertained by many of .those who are speculating on the matter Is that Mr. Walpole was not any great distance away from Adams at any time, with some even hazarding the guess that he was within 60 miles of Adams all of the time. Others, hoover, are of the opinion that Mr. WaJpole traveled a considerable distance and It was rumored In some circles that he had been as far west as Ohio and Illinois, visiting Chicago among other places. Friend Brings Him Back When he returned to Adams late yesterday morning Mr. Walpole Is said to have been a passenger in the automobile of another man. although his own automobile, which lie was driving when last seen In Adams a week ago, was back In Adams this morning. It was In this other man's automobile that Mr. Walpole was driven to his home on Orchard street. After he had conversed for a short time with members of his family, Attorney Cas- sldy, who had been summoned from North Adams where he was appearing in a court case, arrived and took Mr. Walpole in his (Mr. Cassldy's) automobile to the police station where formal surrender was made and the amount of ball was set. Selectmen Visit Walpole During the thrce,hours that Mr. Walpole was detained at the police station awaiting the posting of $20,, 000 bail, he was visited by Chairman Dr. Joseph H. Choqiiettc and Lean- dcr Parott of the board of selectmen, Deputy Sheriff John J. Thompson and one of the three state auditors who arc now examining the town treasurer's books. All of the visitors remained with Mr. Walpole only for a short period. , In connection with the arraignment of Mr. Walpolo in court this morning the fact that a continuance until July 8th was granted Is believed to Indicate that if probable cause is found and the case Is turned over to the grand jury, which has Jurisdiction Instead of the local court where a charge such as the present one Is concerned, that it will not come up until next January. Had a probable cause finding been made after a hearing this morning or had the hearing been waived It would have been possible to have the case come before the grand Jury at next month's session of superior court in Plttsfleld OUTLINE REASONS FOR SEEKING LOAN With Which toJBuild New Reservoir ON TOPHET BROOK Statement Issued Toaay by Prudential Committee Thirty Per Cent of Money Outright Gift. Sonic of the reasons for making application at this time to the federal government for a $300,000 grant and loan to be used In building a new storage reservoir under the national Industrial recovery act are outlined by members of the prudential committee of the Adams fire district In a statement issued today. An explanation Is also given of the manner In which the national Industrial recovery act functions including the manner In which 30 per cent of the cost of a project Is given as an outright gift to stimulate employment. The statement of the prudential committee follows: 'The members of the prudential committee of the Adams fire district feel that the people of the district should have a clear understanding! of what the national Industrial recovery act, which has recently beer called to the attention of both the ward of selectmen and the pruden- Jal committee, really is, and what actions have been taken by these committees. "On June 22nd a Joint meeting be- .ween the two committees was held upon receipt of a letter from Dr. George H. Blgelow, commissioner of public health of the state of Massachusetts, which described In full the irovislons of this act of the federal fovernmcnt for the construction of approved public works, such as highways, public buildings, water works and sewer improvements, and calling particular attention to the additional water supply for the town which had already been approved by his department. "The provisions of the national Industrial recovery act In brief are as follows: If the federal government should act favorably upon a request for aid that may be submitted to It, a grant of 30% of the project will be made to that community that requests this aid and the balance may be borrowed through this board at a proposed rate of Interest of 314% payable over a period of 20 years. The 30% grant Is an outright gift to aid In stimulating employment and will not have to be repaid at any time, nor any interest be paid thereon, but it must be used for labor and material used on the project. It also spe^l 'ev that a 30 hour week for labor must be maintained during the const!' tlon.
