Alio Friday the biennial re* port of the Northeastern Illinois PlAnnlbg Commission recom* mended that any legislation establishing an areawide mass transit district should contain a provision for review of operations by the NIPC.

MississippVs Lenel Drops At Oquawka (Continued From Page 2) Missouri, Illinois and Mississippi," the President said. "Today, I am declaring Arkansas and Louisiana disaster areas as well. "COUNTLESS acts of heroism and sacrifice have been performed. ..." Weary men today continued their battle agahist the worst Mississippi River flooding in history from the cornfields of Iowa to the Louisiana Delta. The surging river already has topped some levees and burst through others to swallow some 11 million acres of land and send thousands of families from their homes. The flood crest stood about 40 miles north of St. Louis, Mo., and continued to roll downstream, sending the river to its highest levels in history. Already, the river's muddy waters were surging past the Gateway Arch at St. Louis at the rate of six million gallons per second. , EIGHT persons have died in the river's latest 'onslaught, the third round of flooding this spring along the river. Close to 20 persons died in two Mississippi floods earlier this month. Governmental agencies have estimated damage in the latest round of fkoding at $400 million. The figure aM>eared optunistic, since damage in the St. Louis area alone was set at $136 milUon and Mississippi state officials estimated their losses at $120 million. The river bfoke through the levee protecting Kaskaskia Island at two locations, send- ind water pouring onto the one-time capital of Illinois. Authorities said it was "only a matter of time" before water covers the historic 12,000-acre island. THE 300 island residents had been evacuated along with their livestock. A crest of 43.3 feet was expected at the island Sunday with flood stage at 27 feet. On Friday, the river stood at nearly 42 feet. Man killed GALENA, III.

Today's low was 18 degrees at Bemidji, Minn. Three persons were under Intensive care today at St. Mary's Hospital, Galesburg, after a 2-car head-on collision Friday morning on III. 41 one mile south of Avon. Occupants of the car in left photo, being approached by ambulance attendants, were Alfred Sloan, 24, and his wife, Debra, 17, of Prairie City. Hariand Brantj 69, Canton, was the driver of the car in photo at right. Brant and Mrs. Sloan, who is pregnant, were reported in critical condition this morning, and Sloan was listed as serious by hospital officials. Brett Bradley, 15, who was at Bradley's Western and Trailer Sales near the accident scene, said he heard the collision about 10:45 a.m. He called an ambulance and Three Injured in Accident alerted his father, Berwin Bradley. The elder Bradley said the accident was the thlltl at that location in a month. State police reports on the accident were incomplete today, but the elder Bradley said a rut svi inches wide and six inches deep running alongside the road may have been a factor. Fill material, apparently for the hole, is near the scene. But, Bradley said, "They won't event put the crushed rock in." He said he had alerted state police, but they said it was "out of their hands." A spokesman for the company which resurfaced the highway last fall said the firm was unaware of the condition.
