ST. LOUIS, April 25 (AP)
The Mississippi river, in the reach
between Louisiana and Cape Gir
ardeau, Mo., was on a new ram
page today as a result of heavy
rains in Missouri and Iowa, and
the United States weather bureau
warned that it would rise at St.
Louis to within one foot of the
crest during the disastrous flood
of 1927.
Government observers said there
would be much flooding of low
lands in the vicinity of St. Louis
and along the lower Missouri in
St. Louis and St. Charles coun
ties. A stage of 35 feet in St.
Louis Sunday, five feet above
flood stas;e. was forecast. This
would affect railroad service and
cause some flooding of industrial
plants in north St. Louis.

Here are some tips on where to to the 28th row, only 40 per cent

the result of an acoustic surrey
made by the physics class of Miss
June Pbllpott at the suggestion of
the principal:
The audibility of the north side
of the assembly Is slightly better
than for the south side, possibly
due to air currents from heat reg
isters or position of the machine
shops on south; the extreme right
and extreme left sections at both
the front and the rear of the room
give poor hearing satisfaction;
there is tendency to a dead spot
in the middle section, from the
ninth to the sixteenth row.

to open a diagonal street from the
present terminus of Liberty at Su
perior, to Commercial 6treet,
members of the commission have
Such a move had been proposed
in connection with the suggested
use of Liberty as a feeder to the
Pacific highway south, after the
new Liberty street bridge is open
ed. Members of the commission are
not of the opinion that traffic
will be so heavy that two parallel
streets will be needed, and if they
are, traffic out Liberyt may use
the right angle turn at Superior,
they stated.
If any new route to the high
way extending south is mapped
out, it will probably be well to
the east of the business section, a
route for persons who wish to
drive directly through the city
without stopping downtown.
On the other hand, it is pretty
generally the concensus of opinion
among the members of the com
mission that one street is all that
is necessary to carry traffic in the
city which must after all be con
fined to one narrow highway af

(AP) President Hoover gave his
approval in an address here to
night to the program for the beau
tification of the national capital
by the carrying out of the present
and projected program of new
government buildings on the south
side of Pennsylvania avenue.
Emphasizing the need of such
structures, the president declared
that nearly 25,000 of the 70,000
federal employes In Washington
are now housed in temporary
buildings, many of which are in
sanitary, with the various depart
ments divided among scores of
unworkable and scattered build
ings. "For instance, agriculture fs
housed in 46 different buildings",
he said, "and the treasury in 27
places; commerce in twenty places.
We are paying rents and losing ef
ficiency in sums far greater than
the interest upon adequate build
ings." The chief executive, who spoke
at a meeting on the beautification
of Washington, held in the United
States chamber of commerce build
ing, said the new building pro
gram must be fitted into the tra
dition and symbolism of the cap
ital. He added that he hoped to
live to see the day when there
would be removed from Washing

Divorce Are
Sought Here
"When were they married?
Where were they married? Was
it the wife or the husband that
sought and obtained the divorce?
Were there children Involved in
the suit?
These are Questions to which
Willamette university students
are seeking an answer as they
probe the files of last year's di
vorce suits in circuit court. Loret

are the Investigators and the
work they are doing will be sub

course in sociology.
While the young women have
not completed their study, they
bare found that 135 divorces were
issued by circuit judges in the
county last year and that the
great preponderance of these were
granted to women.
Vancouver, 'Wash, appears to
the Investigators as a poor place
to be married Inasmuch as many
weddings which went on marital
rocks were begun from that port.

Election of officers and a re

Mr. Stimson's note concluded by
saying that if Canada stiU found
itself nnable to concur in the
findings of facts and the conclu
sions of law set forth by him, the
United States would gladly agree
to submit the mattes to arbitra
tion as provided In Article IV of
the treaty.
Arbitration Offer Is
Accepted By Canada
Accepting the American sugges
tion of arbitration, Canada's reply
expressed regret of "inability to
concur in certain important as
pects" of the I'm Alone and the
speed of the vessel were said by
the note to "appear capable of

The correspondence showed a
wide divergence of opinion be
tween the American and Canadian
governments on the question of
pursuit outside the one hour's
sailing distance from shore when
the pursuit is begun within that
limit. The Canadians contended
that the pursuit should be con
fined to the boundary of the one
hour limit unless begun within
the three-mile territorial waters
limit recognized by international
law. Mr. Stimson argued that
when hailed within the one hour
limit, pursuit might be continued
outside the area.
The United States deplored the
loss of the life of Leon Maincui, a
member of the I'm Alone crew
who waB drowned, but said the
vessel's captain had within his
power to remove at any time prior
to the sinking the danger in which
the lives of the members of his
crew were placed, by complying
with the order to stop.

exception of these, and a proposal
by Representative Crisp, a Geor

amendments of the more than
two score offered were rejected
by votes. The Crisp proposal also
was declined on a point of order.

Representative Auf de Heide,
democrat, New Jersey, who was
