OCTOHER 25, 1955 Forecosfr of the Future; Treak' Storm Pattern May Become Normal' By DOUGLAS LARSKN NKA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON 7 — (NBA) — The ''freak" hurricane and rain-storm pattern which has caused record damage in New England and the Middle Atlantic States for two years could become "normal."

New England governors are asking Uncle Sam to spend 30 million dollars next yenr to speed up the Army's basic flood control program by building dams and improving river beds. But unless emergency money is given to the Engineers immediately for advance planning, that sum cannot be spent economically next year, Gen. Sturgis insists. He estimates that it will be 1958 before special projects aimed at controlling effects of the new weather pattern can even be started. Elaborate studies on drainage and rainfall with the new weather data must be made before major dams to control the situation can! be built.
