Tu HAD EARLY VIEW OF HIGH WATERS Milo Knutson Saw Rising Rivers as Coe Band Returned. CLEAR LAKE--Milo Knutson, who recently accompanied Coe college military band to Washington, D. C., and was there during the inauguration, saw the beginning of the big Ohio river valley flood when he returned from the national capital. The high water then was at Pittsburgh, Pa., and in the upper Ohio where the rivers were starting to overflow their banks. In some places the water was up to the tracks of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad and all trains were being routed through Pittsburgh. If the band had been a day later in returning it would still be on the other side of the river. En- route to Washington the men noticed that all the rivers were high through the Allegheny mountain region. Rain fell continuously all the time the band was at the capital. Mr. Knutson states that he stood on the streets an hour waiting for the inaugural parade and could wring water out of his overcoat when he took it off. He did not see President Roosevelt nor Vice President Garner while in Washington. The Coe men went to Washington especially to play a dinner concert for the Iowa society ball which was given at the Shoreham hotel. The Coe band, directed by Stanley Vesely, was the only college band present at Washington. The band had its own private sleepers which the men occuped while in Washington. On one side of their train was another occupied by Midshipmen from Annapolis and on the oilier a train for the governors of.Missouri, Illinois and Mississippi. Besides the 54 band members Ihe Iowa train carried Director Vesely, Sergeant Pugh, military instructor at Coe college, several officials and a pressman. Mr. Knutson visited Arlington National cemetery and Ihe grave of the Unknown Soldier. At Smithsonian institute he saw Lindbergh's plane and one flown. by Wiley Post. He also visited the new supreme court building. In Washington he met Senators Gillette and Herring, Ex-Senator Dickinson, Henry Wallace and a Roosevelt bodyguard with whom lie spent several hours. The band broadcast over an NBC coast to coast network Tuesday evening and over a Columbia setup on Thursday night. Mr. Knutson met Graham McNamee and Ben Gram- of the National Broadcasting company at the studio. While in Washington Mr. Knutson met a former Clear Lake teacher, Miss Mildred Hallowell. now Mrs. Carroll Baker, and spent the day with her. She is employed in Ihe social security department and her husband works in the treasury department. Mr. Knutson was much impressed with the immense factories in Pittsburgh and said all the steel mills were busy and the smoke terrible. Mr. Knutson, who visited several days at the home of his parents, Mr. nnd Mrs. Peter Knutson, 300 South East street, returned to Cedar Rapids Sunday evening. quet will be held Feb. 8 rather than this Monday night as stated Saturday. The regular meeting will be held this week. Mr. and Mrs. George Baltlridgc went to DCS Moines Monday to visit their daughter, Mi's. David James, for a few days.

Illusion of Space Gained in Painting An illusion of increased space would tend to improve the appearance of the majority of dining rooms. Tins apparent size increase may be accomplished by painting tiic walls light with the trim of the same color, and the floor and baseboard n darker hue. The result gives an impression of extension to the floor space which surrounds the rug. Credit is advanced for the modernization of dining rooms by private financial institutions insured by the Federal Housing administration. "Breeding," said Byron, "shows only in the hands."

B U R E A U (Associated Press Photo) 1937 in Washington MOST AMERICANS rely on The Associated Press for Washington news. Tlicy can count on this supply of reliable and accurate information in 1937 because: 1. The A.P. tradition demands complete facts, and that goes for; Washington as for any spot on earth. 2. The A.P. has the largest staff of news men in the capital, trained to hunt facts on a wide front, to cover every angle of every story. 3. Years of reporting Washington news has given this staff a background of experience, and has taught them that guessing is not reporting. 1937 will be another big year in Washington. The Associated Press will cover .Wasiaington in 1937 as it has in the past--completely and reliably. The Associated Press Reports the News of the World D A I L Y F O R ason City Globe-Gazette
