(Photo by Donald Wm. Burian) River crest inching up at Rock Island (Continued from Page 1) four downriver cities fought severe flooding. Floodwaters closed several industries and a key railroad bridge in Burlington > washed three factories out of operation in Keokuk, knocked down a dike just south of Quincy and flooded 6,000 acres of land there. Hannibal, home of Mark Twain, looked little like the bucolic river town ha described. Flooding pushed more than 20 families from their homes .and buried 15 blocks. Workers built dikes higher as the river rose and the crest drew near. Twain's home, still the most hallowed shrine in a river city of 20,000 population, was not threatened by floodwaters. The flood crest was broad and flat, extending 50 miles or more with the Quad Cities in the middle today. Flooding was widespread, extending far above and below the crest and covering thousands of acres of farmland as well as towns and cities. The Red Cross said it was feeding 11,175 volunteer levee workers, National Guardsmen and flood victims from Clayto County, Iowa, on he Wisconsin border to Louisiana, Mo., south of Hannibal, a span of about 300 river miles. The flood's death toll was 14. The Red Cross said floodwaters had driven 38,180 persons from their homes. Damage totaled between $100 and $200 million. X15 in 131st test flight EDWARDS AFB (UPD—The rocketship X15 underwent its 131st test flight Wednesday, carrying test pilot John B. McKay at five times the speed of sound.

When the medical profession approves a new remedy, it is made public so that everybody may benefit from it Poliomyelitis vaccine is a good example. Should you read or hear about a "secret remedy" for the cure of some serious disease, be on guard. Shun it by all means, because its use could be disastrous. Consult your physician. Ask his views on "mystery remedies." He will give you a candid evaluation. There is nothing hush-hush about medical research and its discoveries. Medicine is an open book — for all the world, to see.
