SIGHT THE NORTH ADAMS. MASSACHUSETTS. TRANSCRIPT THURSDAY AFTERNOON. MARCH 4. l«l Connecticut Valley Has New Protection Against High Water BOSTON UP) -- Several Connect!* cut River V a l l e y communities which have been hard hit by floods in the past will have added protection this spring. Alban J. Parker of Springfield, Vt., chairman of an interstate flood control commission, noted there is as much as 10 feet of snow along several tributaries of the Connecticut and that a series of warm days and nights could send 6 to 10 inches of runoff downstream. "Fortunately," he said- today, ""two recently completed reservoirs--which now bring the total of completed (Conn. River) reservoirs to seven--will give a little added insurance this year should the worst happen." Parker heads the 12-member. four-state Connecticut River Valley Flood Control Commission which was organized in 1953. He called attention to the new Otter Brook Reservoirs at Keene, N.H.. and the Barre Falls, Mass., Reservoir. These have not been dedicated officially but are prepared to store flood water. · The former, said Parker, will protect Keene except for a "really big flood." Two other reservoirs will, he said, provide another half-foot of flood water protection to Chicopee. Holyoke, Northampton, Springfield, West Springfield, H a d 1 e y and Deerfield, all in Massachusetts, and Hartford and East Hartford, in Connecticut. Parker added: With these two new reservoirs, plus three others under construction and a fourth scheduled for construction, the total number of completed reservoirs on the Connecticut will total 11 by 1962. "But, as a result of studies by the commission and Army Engineers, who build and control reservoirs, a total of 22 is considered necessary to harness the Connecticut against all eventualities." Two years ago hurricane Diane caused 130 million dollars damage in the Connecticut River basin alone. Of that total, 43 million was in Massachusetts, the rest in Connecticut. The 1936 flood caused 66 million dollars damage, and the 1938 hurricane 48 million. Showgirl Says She Made $10,000 Loan NEW YORK ltf -- Showgirl Liz Renay says a Manhattan, grand jury was satisfied with what she called her "very simple explanation" of a $10,000 loan she made last year to Mickey Cohen, West Coast racketeer. Miss Renay came here from California and spent an hour and a half before the grand jury which is investigating the assassination of mobster Albert Anastasia last October. She told newsmen that she knows the district attorney's office is "embarrassed" because it has not solved the Anastasia murder and is "groping in the dark and grabbing at straws." Miss Renay, 31, recently characterized Cohen as her steady boy friend. She said also that Anthony Coppola, Anastasia's bodyguard, had been an ardent suitor. The district attorney's office has suggested that $10,000 Miss Renay loaned to Cohen might have come from Anastasia through Coppola. The office wants to know whether the money figured in any way in Anastasia's assassination. Miss Renay, explaining the transaction, said she lent Cohen $2,000 last October, $3,500 more in November, and $4,500 later that month. Asked where she got the money, she said from two of her friends. She said Cohen has paid back $9,000 and she returned it to the friends. Miss Renay said she had intended to return tc Los Angeles but had been asked by an assistant district attorney to remain here another day or two as a favor.
