Sausage Baffles Sfirewd Scientists By Hal Cooper LONDON Iff — A government spokesman says modern, science, [which has plumbed the innards of the atom,, has been stopped cold by the British sausage.

Only small amounts of precipitation were reported, with 1.10 of an inch at Topeka the heaviest. Garrett said radar reports indicated there may have been some heavier amounts in areas not making reports.
