Qalesburg Regisfer-Mah GALESBURG, ILL., MOW., MAY 7, 1973 SEC. 2 PAGE 17 Four Inch Rain Swamps Denver DENVER (UPI) - Pont inches of rain in the metropolitan area and 20 inches of very Wet snow in nearby mountains swelled the South Platte River over its banks Sunday, forcing the evacuation of thousands of persons from low-lying areas. A Red Cross official estimated between 3,500 and 7,000 persons were forced to leave their homes as the South Platte rose two to three feet above flood stage.. "Only about. 500 took shelter at established emergency areas inside Denver proper, but we don't know how to count the others in the suburbs because most of them go to friends' houses," said Gaylord Colle, Red Cross director of disaster services. "As a very rough guess, I'd say 7,000 persons left their homes in Denver and the suburbs, but that's strictly a ballpark figure," he said. Colle said flood warnings had been issued through tonight for sections of Denver, Littleton, Englewood, Sheridan, Jefferson County and low areas along the Platte west, east and north of Denver. The Denver Fire Department received more than 900 calls from citizens asking help to pump out flooded basements. Denver police closed low sections and exit ramps of the Valley Highway, Denver 's main north-south artery, and called in earth-moving equipment on the city's southwest side as a precaution. The Colorado State Patrol said numerous state and federal highways in the Denver area were closed because of flooding. Flood conditions were reported along a 20fcmile stretch of the Platte extending from Conifer, southwest of Denver, to the Colorado-Nebraska border. Nebraska officials said it would be at least a week before the Colorado situation affected the Platte in Nebraska. The Denver-area evacuation order was partially based.on memories of a 1965 flood that inundated 20 eastern Colorado counties, killed 21 persons and caused $543 million in property damage, but officials said the current flooding was not nearly as severe. Balsam Source Canada balsam, a greenish oleoresin that solidifies to a transparent mass and is used as a transparent cement in microscopy, is secured from the balsam fir without even hurting the bark of the tree because it forms bubbles, making blisters which can be punctured to get the pure balsam. Spring Storm Floods Denver A suburban Denver pedestrian sloshes through waist deep water during the flooding Sunday. A spring storm dropped four inches of rain on the city and 14 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountain foothills in the area. UNIFAX Communists Fire On Second Truce Copter Kissinger, Brezhnev Still Talking MOSCOW (UPI) - Presidential adviser Henry A. Kissinger postponed a planned sightseeing trip to Leningrad today, U.S. sources said, so that he and Leonid I. Brezhnev can confer more about the Soviet leader's trip to Washington next month. Kissinger has been secluded in Brezhnev's hunting lodge, on a wooded country estate on the Volga River 75 miles from Moscow, since shortly after he arrived Friday night. The only word from the lodge, inaccessible to foreigners, came Sunday. "The talks are continuing," a U.S. Embassy spokesman said. "That's all they care to say."

Palestinian Negotiations j Continuing BEIRUT (UPI) - Much of Lebanon remained under a dusk-to-dawn curfew today. despite a generally effective truce between army troops and Arab guerrillas whose leaders continued negotiations today on the their future role in this pivotal Middle East land. Despite the cease-fire agreement reached between Palestinian guerrilla^ chief Yassar <Arafat and .LjPr ^mier Amin Hafez, there were scattered shooting incidents and explosions in parts of the country. But the mood was generally calm and despite the incidents, Beirut and five other major cities remained under a curfew first imposed last Wednesday when fighting erupted between guerrillas and the 12,000-man army. At Least 168 Killed Before the truce was arranged, officials said the fighting— the most serious such clashes since 1969—killed at least 168 persons and wounded another 473. On the negotiation front, talks on the future of the Palestinian guerrillas continued into the night Sunday between Lebanese authorities and guerrilla leaders led by Arafat, leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). A jam session, in jazz termi- nolgy, means an informal performance. It carried four Polish interpreters, an American communi cations technician, a Canadian officer and an Air America crew of three. Air America provides the aircraft and crews for the ICCS. Air America sources said the small arms fire broke out as the craft descended from 3,000 to 1,500 feet to avoid rain squalls five miles northwest of Vi Thanh. Canadian sources said the chopper was not hit but was forced to turn back to Tri Ton, the origin of the flight 50 miles northwest of Saigon. Canadian diplomats and newsmen reported Wednesday that two ICCS helicopters were fired on over Communist-held Gromyko Dobryrtin, dor to Brezhnev Kissinger, Embassy officials originally said Kissinger planned to stay at the country dacha discussing bilateral relations and a summit agenda until today, when he would leave for Leningrad territory « . flight to Gi. Lin h , h ~ elong the Demilitarized Zone The Viet Cong later denied the reports and said the only firing that day wa9 at an unmanned U.S. reconnaissance plane that appeared over Communist- claimed territory. In other incidents Sunday, Saigon command spokesman Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien said Communist saboteurs wounded one person and damaged a locomotive and five boxcars in the mining of the newly reopened Saigon-to-Xuan Loc rail line. Trains resumed operation on the 50-mile stretch of track Friday. He also said a civilian died when a truck struck a land mine in Quang Tri Province northeast of My Chanh. Czarist capital, but has failed to do so on three previous trips to the Soviet Union. The sources said Kissinger now has put off the trip until at least Tuesday, if indeed he goes there at all. Hampton, Va., settled in 1610, iS the oldest town founded by the English still in existence in the United States. Removal of Trees STUMP REMOVAL TREE PLANTING TRIMMING — FEEDING SHADE TREES FOR SALE SOUTHARD TREE SERVICE Nixon's Retreat Under Shadow Of Watergate KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (UPI) — In the week since President Nixon declared the Watergate scandal had "claimed far too much of my time and attention," there has been little evidence he has thought about or attended to much else. Nixon today was winding up four days of nearly complete seclusion during which he divided his time between his villa beside Biscayne Bay and a privately owned island in a remote part of the Bahamas. White House officials turned aside all questions about the Watergate bugging and subsequent efforts to cover it up. But they, like their boss, appeared to be preoccupied by the scandal and its implications. The President spent most of the day Sunday on Grand Cay in the Bahamas, accompanied only by three personal friends- Robert Apblanalp, the industrialist who owns the island; C. G. "Bebe" Rebozo, Nixon's next door neighbor at Key Biscayne, and television producer Paul Keyes. A spokesman said he spoke by telephone with aides who remained in Florida and worked on papers he brought in his briefcase. Nixon's wife, Pat, and daughter, Julie Eisenhower, accompanied him Thursday on the trip from Washington to Florida. But they remained in Key Biscayne when the President went to the Bahamas and they returned to the capital Sunday afternoon, shortly before Nixon left the island. In his speech to the nation last Monday on the political espionage scandal, Nixon said: "Since March, when I first learned that the Watergate affair might in fact be far more serious than I had been led to believe, it has claimed far too much of my own time and attention ... I must now turn my full attention once again to the larger duties of this office." Since making that speech, Nixon met with West German Chancellor Willy Brandt in a summit conference scheduled much earlier, and tightened his Phase III price controls, a move which had been under consideration for weeks. The President also issued his "State of the World" report, a book-length review of the nation's foreign policy which was prepared much earlier by his National Security Council staff. The rest of Nixon's time apparently has been dominated by the Watergate.
