LpNDON (AP) —.Britain mobilised a fleet of some 30 helicopters and planes today to drop food .and medicines in frozen northern Scotland. More snow was predicted for much of the British Isles and Europe, where blizzards, gales and floods have caged For more than a week. The 13,000-ton British aircraft carrier Glory steamed toward northern Scotland to act as a float- Ing base for helicopters engaged in rescue missions over the snowbound counties of Caithness and Sutherland. The Royal Air Force ordered more than 20 planes to a relief base at Klnloss. More than 10,000 persons in Caithness and Sutherland were ciit off by 20-foot snowdrifts and fallen telephone lines. Radio broadcasts advised them to make an "F" on the snow if they needed ^food, or a "D" If n doctor was required. Another blizzard interrupted rescue operations late yesterday. Freezing: weather early today put some check on flooding In the Moscl and Rhine rivers of Western Germany .At Bonn, the West German capital, the flood crest on the Rhine was still to come but already the basement of the Federal Parliament Building was full of water. Workers ringed the structure with 40,000 sandbags to head off the rising river. At Mehlem, near Bonn, the U.S. High Commission was Hooded out of its headquarters, where 2,000 Germans and 450 Americans are employed. In France, the flooding Garonne neared the danger mark and there was fear that the dam at Tpury on the Eure River, would burst. More than 3,700 persons were evacuated from low-lying areas in the Rhone Valley. Winds ranging up to 60 miles an hour lashed Italy's Llgurian coast, smashing summer cottages, uprooting trees and driving huge waves across coastal roads. Mountainous waves continued to lash the sea, keeping the damaged Greek ship Corinthia from reaching port. The 3,879-ton vessel rammed a reef midway along the coast between Rome and Leghorn yesterday, smashing a hole in her bow. AH 167 passengers were removed by another ship after the damaged vessel maneuvered off the reef and into shelter in a cove. Her crew remained aboard. Heavy snow blocked highways in south Sweden. More snow, high winds and freezing temperatures were predicted f o r Denmark where road and railway traffic 1ms been hard hit by falls ranging up to 20 inches in depth. The winter storms also hit east of the Iron Curtain. Warsaw radio reported that many persons died in gules that swept parts of Poland Monday. Several ships ran aground near the Baltic ports of Gdansk and Swunousjscie (Danzig and Swinemuende), the broadcast said. \NNOMARIAN POSTE25 LIRE f[PYB8L!CA!IAllANAj COMMEMORATIVE — Italian postal authorities have Just issued this stamp honoring the Marian Year The stamp features "The Madonna of Pity," from a marble group by Michelangelo, now In St. Peter's Basiljca in Rome.
