Flood Waters Pour Down The Ohio River Valley steady Rains Over,Wide Area Send Many Rivers Out of Banks and Threaten to Wreak Even Greater Dama^;e as Crest Heads,Toward Mississippi. Cincinnati. O., Mar. 20. (AP)— Flood waters from raging rivers of six states converged today on the tn-statc region sturounding Cincinnati, carrying death and destruction in their wake. From Huntington. W. Va., to LouisiiUe, Ky., the Ohio river and its tributaries gobbled up firm acres by the thousand and swUlep around city homes, driving farmer and city cousin alike to higher ground. Twenty feet of water flowed over 3,000 acres of farm lands near Elizabethtown, O., near the Indiana border west of here; east of Ciii- cinnati stretched a moat fully two- miles wide; New Richmond, C, was two-thirds imder water; water gushed through the main street of Manchester; Himtington 's river-side quailed before a stream of 51.2 foot level as against a flood stage of 50 feet; Louisville retreated before a rising stream; and Portsmouth, O., anxiously patrolled a levee for protection against the river's lunges. Death crawled southward with the flood. It struck first , at Gallipolis, O., [ taking Mrs. John Harrison, 40, and her daughter, AJlee, 7, as their automobile went over a banit. ."^t California, Ky., a skiff over- SOUND BUSINESS IN NEW FACTORY Designer Says She Is Not Out tb "Revolutionize The Industry" >Irs.

Stephens, 14, drew a bottle from the stream, drank of its contents, and died of convulsions. Even if no more rain falls, the Ohio will be 12 feet above its flood stage by night, weathei; bureau officials predicted, and Istill waterlogged skies spread threateningly over West Virginia, Ketitucky. Ohio, and Indiana. Rain started it all. now drizzling, now coming torrents, from the great lakes to the blue grass region. Hamilton, O., had- recorded 7.27 inches this month before a respite came earlv Simday. That fall was typical. •It filled the Allegheny far up in western New York, and sent it roaring through western Pennsylvania to meet a Monongahela swelled in West Virginia's mountains. Down the Ohio river then water rushed south to meet the Kanawha, the Scioto, the Muskingiun. the Licking of Kentucky, the Big and Little Miami rivers of southwestern Ohio, and the 'White Water of Indiana. Around Cincinnati was every eri- dence of i their meeting. At Newport. Ky.. 50 city blocks lay under dingy waters, and 1.500 were homeless. Co^'ington, Ky., next door, fared as badly. In Cincinnati's east end. Little Columt»a, Marmet. Cumuiinsville, and Sedamsville were islands in a flood. Seven thousand bags of sand were massed to hold the river off the municipal aiiTMrt and suburban Linwood. E>i'ery house in California. Ky.. was subnierged. and six feet of water coursed through California. O. Nearly 500 people were rescued from river camps about this "gateway to the South."

President Roosevelt this afternoon signed into law the economy bill empowering him to slash veterans' compensations and government salaries. With this weapon, he intends to lop off about 500 million dollars from federal expenses. He had his aides already busy preparing the new schedule of salaries and veterans' allowances, and expected to put these into eiffect before the next pay day comes along on April 1. A minimum saving of 280 million dollars through reduced veterans' ccmpensatioiis and 100 million in lowered salaries is contenxplated in tlie administration moves to get the budget balanced within a >-ear. Another hundred million or more in savings is expected from reorganization and abolition of government .igencies. Second of Three Bills.
