Pope Astonishes His Attendants by Heavy Schedule of Work IRAMA UNFOLDED IN. LOOD BROADCASTS In the studios of numerous ra- io stations in the heart of the looded zone, haggard men, sleep- ess since the crisis broke almost week ago, carry on the work of o-ordinating rescue and relief ac- ivities through the relaying of urgent messa.ges and bulletins. Be- ijnd them, to get these messiges hrough, engineering corps toil 24 hours on.telephone and power ines; secretarial, staffs remain at witchboards and typewriters and n every new danger zone, : radio men bob lip lo gather vital in- ormation for life-saving relays to scattered rescue points. During the last six days, more han 40 pick-ups from 7 key cities n the flood-battered area hare enabled radio audiences to witness developments as they occurred in Louisville, Cincinnati, VIemphis, Portsmouth, Charleston, Mo.; Wheeling, W. Va., and Evansville, Ind. As the flood crest rolls southward the audiences follow its course through broadcasts from menaced cities along the way. Cincinnati and Louisville, in the center of regions hardest hit by the flood, gave valiant service. On the first day of the crisis, WHAS in Louisville organized about itself a volntary "inter-city" network of stations in 40 surrounding communities in co-operation with WSM, Nashville. Through communication provided by it, precious trjne was saved by the relief organizations rushing to aid the thousands of sufferers. In the city hall and at various relief quarters, engineers set up improvised power plants to assure continuous, 24- hour service. Inside Ihe offices and studios, makeshift bedding was thrown on the floor beside desks and microphones to provide brief rests for a staff fighting oft exhaustion with more work. Likewise, in Cincinnati, the entire staff of WKRC mobilized at once to provide constant communication facilities for the flood emergency. All other service was suspended to make way for aid to flood sufferers. Both the Cincinnati Symphony and the Cincinnati conservatory concerts, regular airwave musical features, have been postponed this week to conserve electric power for absolute necessities. From vital points tn the ctiy to the studio switchboards, \VKIIC .engineers installed numerous' trunk lines to handle the -ruslt-r-of ·- emergency' calls. Announcers -were stationed " for the duration' of the crisis at city hall, whence listeners heard from all leading officials.

By D11.LARD STOKES LOUISVILLE, Ky., (JP)--R. E. Mobley of Albert.Lea, Minn., will be glad to know that the Sweeney family got the box full of clothes, shoes and bedding he sent them. He will be glad to know, too, that the Sweeneys--from the father, Robert Sweeney, 35, and Mrs, Delia Sweeney, who is expecting another baby soon, down to Ruby, 9, Ruth, and Roy, 12, crippled by infantile paralysis -- cried when they opened the box. Mr. Mobley clipped from a newspaper the Associated Press picture of the Sweeney family being rescued from the Ohio river flood waters. Then he packed a box of 60 pounds of warm things, posted the picture on the outside, and scribbled below it: To Sweeney Family. "Please somebody see that this family gets this box." He tacked another cardboard square beside the picture, ahd that read: ' "To the Sweeney family with invalid son, : In flood zone of Louisville, Ky., .Care of police station." It took most of the Associated Press flood staff, Mr. Mobley, working all day Sunday, to carry out your instruction, but it was well 'worth the trouble. As soon as the package arrived at police headquarters. Col. Edward Calia- han, the chief, called the Associated Press office, and said: "Here you are. You deliver it. The photographer who made the picture knew that the Sweeneys were rescued Thursday from their home on "the point," one ot the poorer sections of the city. Photographer Leads Hunt. So the photographer, Harry -iarris, led the hunt for one home- esK family in. a city of more than 200,000 homeless. But everybody, dog tired as they were, dirly ; sleepless and cold, pitched in to find the Sweeneys. They were located, finally, in a refugee camp on the riverbank. It was preUy dark there, and there was no heat Roy, whose legs were twisted anc his body stunted by infantile paralysis, was shivering on a make shift couth. So you can see, Mi Mobley, ho\y welcome those warm things were. Mrs. Sweeney couldn't under stand how it happened, and it' difficult to explain such an un usual thing as this when people' minds are dazed. She cried an said, "well, after all, with the ba comes the j;ood." and Mr. Sweo ney, who has been out hclpin others tn the relief work, cried little, too, and so did the young slers.

Charles A. Lindbergh hopped of£ for an undisclosed destination Monday in his specially designed light touring monoplane.

Aviation circles believed he would use the plane for nights within Great Britain, probably for inspection tours of airdrome sites in connection with a proposed transatlantic air- service. . Deal 1 Son: I am in receipt of your letter containing your school expense account report. T note your protest of the lOc the bank charged for cashing my check. Well, just trace thai: irheok I. sent you, after you've cashed it, Jt goes.on the bank's books there at .school, then tn a Cleveland bank acting as correspondent, then to the Federal Reserve Bank oE Chicago, and then to the Mason City Clearing House and then to my bank--handled and t.-vbulated a dozen times, with postage and insurance having to be paid out in its behalf. Meanwhile, the interest which the money they gave you might be earning for the bank d u r i n g those four or five days, is of * course, lost. Add to it the bookkeeping and h a n d l i n g costs ,and you'll feel lucky that your bank didn't charge you more for cashing that check. As a matter of fact, with a bank's opportunities for earning interest on its deposits fewer than they have ever been in our history, the charges they arc now m a k i n g for handling deposits and providing us with checking service are morn t h a n reasonable. So don't take, offense, at having .to pay for a genuine service .just because banks haven't always followed that practice. When or if you go into business for yourself, the bank is going to be your most dependable business partner, and you want it to be in a position to serve you adequately and with m u t u a l profit. .Operating on a g e n u i n e "cost of doing business" basis, as they arc today, banks are in better and better position in serve you.
