MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, [Snow Obliterates [Army Relief Aid North Dakota Roads Reblocked; Cold Wave Descends on West ISy The Associated Press Snow.and a stinging cold wave l«°unterattacked the Army's bllz- l* ar <( relief forces In North Dakota f'otlay and sent temperatures down I So around zero as far south as I Iowa. Just as Hie Army wa-s about to Iwrite off Operation Snowbound «s • mission accomplished, two Inches of I snow and strong winds closed more • roads in North Dakota. I The Army said at least another • day would be required to reopen Ithe roads. Temperatures through- lout, the area, the only sector still I snowbound, ranged from zero to I around 20 below. Low readings of I around zero were, in prospect al- ISQ for .Mason City and Spencer, I Iowa. I The cold wave was expected to I move eastward across Minnesota and I Wisconisn today, followed by I wanner air which already had over- I spread most of the western great I plains. I The Army's month-long fight ag- lainst the snow In Wyoming, Neb- Iraska and South Dakota came to 1 an end yesterday. I Meanwhile ale'rts against floods I tram the melting snow were cx- I tended along the Missouri river I from Leavenworlh, Kansas, to Plat- I tsmounth, Neb. The stream was five [feet above flood stage at Atchi- Isoii. Kansas, and .7 foot above flood Milage at St. Joseph, Mo. It was I ice-jammed for 105 miles upstream I from Leavenworth with only minor I breaks occurring in the jam. I Near Steel City, Neb., an ice jam [collapsed a 300-fr.ot steel bridge I »nd threatened two others. I The Platte River \v n s 4.5 feet I over flood stage at Agency, Mo., I andatScandia, Mo., the Republican I River was 3.6 feet above flood. I However the Nemaha at Falls City, I Neb., was heceiding. I Most of' the nation had fair I weather and clear skies with tem- Iperatures around normal. Auto Overturns Injuring Couple [From Monroe, La. John Fuller, 73, and his 63-year- lold wife, both of Monroe. La., for- Iraerly of Kennett. Mo,, are in Walls I Hospital today suffering from In- I juries received late Saturday when Ithe car in which they were riding lleft Highway 61 and rolled down a jVeep embankment near Luxora. I Neither was believed injured ser- Ifously. Information concerning their I condition and extent of their in- I.juries was unavailable at the hos- Ipital this morning. 1 According to stole Policeman I George Irwin, who with State Po- I licemen^ Tom Smalley and Ray Mc- I Kinney, investigated the accident. I the car wns driven by Mrs. Dcloris I Fuller, a daughter-in-law. She es- I capcd with only minor cuts. I Officer Irwin stated that the Fuller car apparently left the highway on a short curve and in I attempting to return the car to the I pavement Mrs. Fuller cut the wheels too sharp. The car rolled down the embankment Into a shallow ditch I turned over and came to a stop up-' I light. Officer Irwin slated that the Fullers were en route from Monroe [ lo Kennett, Mo,, at the time of the accident. Mrs. Deloris Puller's Ivus- i band, was in another car ahead of his wife and parents and was not involved in an accident. Lawrence Washington, half- brother of George, named the family estate "Mount Vernon" in honor of the admiral uncier whom ne served in the West Indies.

She's been masquerading as a man ever since. She probably still woll ] d 1)c today but for an argument with her daughter. "It's easier co get, along in this world as a man," she told Detective Sgt. William Sanders. Sanders said the 36-year-old woman and her 19-year-old daughter Judy, started arguing in a bar yesterday. When they returned home the argument continued. Finally, he said.

She worked as a painter and did other manual labor at different Texas towns. The one time she tried to go back to being a woman she found that "I was mauled too much bv other men." She moved to Denver from Aniar- illo five years ago and worked as cook here.

Less Federal Claim on Dam Areas Sought WASHINGTON, Frb, 28 Im _ Rep. Trimble irj-Arlo believes the government is holding too much .and around Ihe Inkcs which are formed by flood control knd power More of this land, he said, should he relumed to Individuals—»nd to local tax rolls. To this end. he told a reporter he will seek approval of legislation U liberalise the present policy and permit disposal of more of the land udjacent to these lakes. At present, Trimble said, liic Army Engineers, upon completing the big 'lams and lakes, retain title i all land for half > mile around 1C lElk£. He said lie fnvora a policy whereby the engineers would retain part of the land and permit the rest to bt disposed of on a best-bid basis , At Ji C " Sl ' , ! " * nid ' tlle (tovornmciil holding.! should be cut to an elxhlh Sake* q " nrlcl ' °' " mllc n e° llt the The Kiiginetrs' theory In holding the land. Trimble said, is that Individuals should not be allowed to net properly whose value has been k-mitly Increased by Improvement:; 1-aid for by the general public. Trimble said he doesn't agree with Unit theory nnd that, if applied to other instances, individuals just as ogfcally could be kept from holding land adjacent to paved hlghwnvs which ulso are paid for by Die «««•-' "il public. The principal purpose of his proposal, Trimble salrt, is to return vnl- liable land l o tux polls in the localities of the lakes. "These dams and lakes when uuilt. take off of the tax rolls some of the richest property in a com- nntnlty,' he said. "I think we should limit this as much as possible—the move of the iropc held by the Individuals, the more would BO on the lax rolls," IB <ARK.)
