FRIDAY, JUNE 5, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB Flooding Rivers Cover 14 Montana Counties GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Fourteen counties straddling Montana'! Continental Divide country were on emergency flood status today »s some rain-swollen streams reached 10 times their.usual water flow. The rain in Northwestern Mon- the week, tana stopped yesterday but not before more fell here in 10 days than to all of 1952. And state and Bed Cross officials expect the flood situation to get tougher as waters Pour from soaked land into streams. At least nine communities in the valleys of the Sun River and Belt Creek are involved. The death of a man from a heart , attack at Tracy was reported. A dirt slide blamed on several "days of rain smothered two boys at Havre, northeast of here, early in Wayne's Wife Gets $1100 In Alimony LOS ANGELES (fl") — Film star John Wayne's estranged wife, who says she needs $9,350 monthly to live in the style to which she's accustomed, will have to do with about one-ninth of that — $1,100 a month. The former Esperanza Bauer, 30, ex-actress in Mexican movies, bit her lip and blanched as the judge read hifi decision yesterday after 15-day temporary alimony hearing. Wayne, 44-year-old boxoffice favorite, grinned. Teenagers packing the courtroom applauded and, with secretaries and stenographers taking a few minutes away from their desks in the hall of records, mobbed him in the hall. Wayne said he would leave by plane today for Mexico to start co- producing a movie after $40,000 worth of delays occasioned by the hearing. The judge restrained both Wayne and his wife from molesting, harassing, contacting or threatening each other pending the trial. "From the fact that this preliminary hearing took 15 days," Judge William R. McKay observed, "it can be surmised that the trial may be a very long one." Bookie Pleads No Defense to Tax Evasion NEW YORK (/PJ—Prank Erickson, once a kingpin bookmaker, has pleaded no defense to an income tax evasion charge, and is to be sentenced June 16. He could get in to live years in prison and a ;'0100 fine. .The 56-year-old Erickson, now serving a 12 to 14-month term in New jersey for violating gambling laws, yesterday changed his plea from Innocent to evading 375,030 in taxes in 1945. He switched his plea on condition the government drop the second count of the indictment charging evasion of nn additional $70,987 In taxes in 1946. The prosecution agreed. Erickson who previously served 16 months in New York for gambling, still faces a 74-counfc indictment accusing him of contempt of the U. S. Senate Crime Committee two years ago. Estimates on persons displaced from dwellings were lacking but one official thought the figure would be in the hundreds. In proclaiming an emergency, Gov. Hugo J. Aronson yesterday referred to discomfort for thousands. Flood waters around Great Palls, Montana's largest city, still rose early Friday, although they were reported receding in the Belt area. The Sun River crest was expected, here late Friday morning. An average of five families an hour were being evacuated from West Great Falls. Improvement in and around Great Falls will be "tantalizingly slow, thus resulting in serious damage and discomfort to thousands," Aronson said in proclaiming the emergency. Red Cross officials here said "the job is getting rougher." Robert Jacubeck, Red Cross special disaster representative, arrived here late last night to gather information on the 14 counties, coordinate efforts to help In flooded areas and begin planning for re- labilitation. Great Palls had some 10 inches of rain into yesterday, compared with 9.02 inches in all of 1952. In proclaiming "unprecedented 'lood conditions," Aronson reported that "tributary m o u n tain streams flowing into the Missouri above Canyon Perry Dam near Helena have been swollen to as nuch as 10 times ordinary capacity.' ' The proclamation appealed for aid from Congress, the President, Secretary of Commerce and Civil Defense Administrator. It was issued at Helena, the state :apitol, after Aronson returned late •esterday from surveying flooded areas from the air. VALIANT DUTCH FIGHT ON—Operating a crane from a floating barge, workmen erect a new dike from the muddy soil of a farm near Schelphoek, The Netherlands, which has been inundated since last February's disastrous floods. The old dike, severed by the sea, can be seen in the background. Until the new dike is in place the sea will come and go with the tides. ^ Japanese to See Films on Death Mission of Mammoth Battleship 34,000 Foreign Students Now Studying in U.S. NEW YORK m— The number of 'oreign students now studying at :olleges, and universities in the United States total 34,000 — 3,000 more than last year. This was reported yesterday By FRED SA1TO TOKYO M*—The last day of a battleship—the death of the mammoth Yamato on a suicide mission late in the Pacific war—will be shown Japanese moviegoers this month in a new documentary film. The Japanese say the 72,808-ton Yamato, sunk by U. S. carrier planes, was the biggest fighting I ship ever built, dwarfing by more I than 20,000 tons the largest American battleship afloat. The Yamato was wrapped in so much secrecy from the time it was built in 1935 until it sank off Kyushu on April 7, 1945—that not even a picture was released. The Japanese Navy refused to confirm there was such a ship. The last day of the Yamato is not a pleasant memory for any Japanese, but the Japanese people do not resent grim pictures. Several months ago, the Toei Motion Picture Company filmed "Wild Lily Tower," an account of Okinawa high school girls who volunteered as nurses and perished in the Okinawa battle. The picture was an all-time boxoffice success. in an annual census by the Committee m Friendly Relations Among Foreign Students .It gave these top figures: 4,636 students from Canada; 2,611 from China; 1,371 from Germany. Soviet Russia has 53 students enrolled in the U. S. Ike and Cortines To Dedicate Dam MEXICO CITY UP}— The Presidents of -Mexico and the United States plan to dedicate a border dam together in October. Mexico's Foreign Secretary, Luis Padilla Nervo, said last night that President Ruiz Cortines has accepted an official invitation to meet President Eisenhower on the Texas border between Oct. 17 and Oct. 24 to inaugurate the new Falcon Dam on the Rio Grande River. The dam, being constructed jointly by the U. S. and Mexico, will provide irrigation and power for both sides of the border. Toei yuki followed with "Gen. Tomo- Yamashita," describing the losing battle of The Phillipines. This also was a smash hit. Now Shin Toho Motion Picture survived the death blast. Company, producers of several naval epics, including- the "sinking" of the U. S. Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor, has made the Yamato story. The Yamato, 861 feet long and mounting nine 18-inch guns was equipped with six airplanes, radar and every modern instrument. The Yamato made its last sortie on a kamikaze special attack (suicide) mission—teaming out of j Kure Naval Base for Okinawa with enough fuel for only a one-way trip.. None of the 3,333 crew members expected to return. There was no air cover at all. Japan couldn't afford it. Only eight destroyers and a cruiser escorted the suicide battlewagon on its final mission. They represented the last of the once great Japanese Navy. The-desperate mission wound up in utter failure. Instead of reaching Okinawa as intended, some 1,000 U. S. carrier planes assaulted the Yamato off Kyushu, Japan's southern island, and sank it after a two-hour battle. The Yamato went down when more than 10 aerial torpedoes ripped through her steel plates and aenetrated the powder magazine. Only about 300 officers and men New research, Bowers said, promises better methods of protecting humans against radiation from A-bombs. Its ridiculous, apparently, ti warn everyone to quit doing vig orous exercise after 40, said, Dr Paul D. White, heart specialis from Boston, in another report. The quitting of exercise just be cause a person is 40 may evei lead to quicker hardening and fat ntng a long-delayed honeymoon. .1. P.

O RITZ THEATER MANILA, ARK. SUNDAY-MONDAY-TUESDAY —PLUS— JACK RICOER • A UWMT hCTURii f M t w r.TM By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE AP Science Reporter NEW YORK (/PI—Atomic energy already has saved many times more lives than the 80,000 lost by atomic bombs exploded over Japin, Dr. John Z. Bowers said today. Bowers, dean and professor of •adiobiology, University of Utah College of Medicine, told the Am- that the life-saving has nme through the use of radioactive itoms in medicines. In a speech prepared for the losing session of the AMA con- ention. Bowers gave some examples of how atomic energy has quietly been saving lives: Radioactive atoms, which can be traced wherever they go, are in effect making the human body transparent. Doctors can learn where drugs go, how drugs do their good work. They can learn how glands work, even what part of living cells do the work which saves or preserves'health. Mysteries uf the adrenal glands are being solved with the aid of radioactive atoms. This has aided in treatments of rheumatoid arthritis, and rheumatic fever, the great heart-killer among children. Radioactive iodine is helping in treating diseases, including cancer, of the thyroid gland, Bowers continued. And there are hopes that cancers elsewhere in the body can be treated by finding chemicals which will go just to those cancers. Those chemicals could be made radioactive, to go to the cancers and then give off atomic rays xvhich would kill the cancer cells. ITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark.
