At Memphis Meteorologist F W Brist, .who apparently hit the'nail- almost .squarely on the head with his prediction, early last week of a flood crest' of 48 feet at Memphis, said yesterday that without further heavy rains the Mississippi would remain out of its banks at Memphis, until March 15 or later. The great volume of water still coming down'the Ohio makes it certain that the fall will be slow, he said, and . it Is likely to be further retarded by rain. Colonel Reybold, ' yho .is in charge of the Memphis area, U S engineers, and Capt. Haris Kramer,- directing levee operations from West Memphis north,' were In BlytheviUe today on an inspection tour. They expressed themselves as well satisfied witli the situation.

At the Highway 18 bridge Big Lake fell .45 of a foot to 2-19.25 In the 24 hours ending tills morning. The stage is now 2 15 feet below the crest. At Roseland bridge, however, flood waters from levee breaks at the state line are falling much less rapidly. The drop In 24 hours was only about a tenth of a foot. Water" is still pouring through the levee breaks >n considerable volume and will continue to do so while Bin Lake remains out of its banks ._ Robinson and his wife lived nrin- cipally on his. state old age pension of about $10 a month.
