Red Cross workers in Norman were set up to care for the families that fled nearly 25 flooded homes, but no one came to the shelter. "I don't know if they're staying in motels or with relatives.

Butterfield Butterfield Auctioneers Appraisers Inc. will auction off the treasure- trove May 25-28, and Crosby's widow Kathryn hosted a preview on Monday. "Our attic was overflowing," she explained. "I was storing dining room furniture in the upstairs hallway. The basement was so full of records and photos, you couldn't get to the wine. We decided an auction would be the happiest thing. "I'm giving up things that are very precious tp me, because I thought they'd be even more precious to someone who doesn't have anything of Bing's,"she said. Leading visitors from item to item, Mrs. Crosby recalled how Bing felt about a certain stuffed fish, how he looked in a goofy straw hat or felt about a pretty co-star. "It's kind of like having a baby: parting with one's possession's is like haying a child. You're glad to see it leave, and yet you're not," she said. One display case is filled with gold and platinum records, i n c l u d i n g the platinum album of "Silent Night," which had 300 million sales.
