Mr. Hoover told the president that state legislatures -are unable to raise aufBclent funds to carry on the imt?eratlve work of closing the levees. Furthermore, he said, local communities cannot meet the burden of taxes falling due on the levee bonds because it has been 'possible only to restore about 2,000,000 of the 3,500,000 acres covered by the flood to crops this year.  Asks U. S. to Close levees.  Without mentioning a special session of congress, which is under consideration by Mr. Coolidge, the secretary did recommend that the government go to the Immediate relief ofr the levee program; Insisting that it was necessary to have these closed before fall. Some funds, he thought, could be obtained from government money on hand, including the rivers and harbors appropriations.  So far as caring for the flood victims is concerned, Mr. Hoover „.declared, there would be $3,000,000 on hand from the Red Cross relief contributions on Nov. 1, and he was confident that they could be taken care oi until congress meets in regular session in December.

Additional Millions anted.  He gave an estimate that an addition of $16,000,000 to $20.000.000 annually over a period of 10 years to the (present appropriation of .<>16.000.000 annually for flood control would complete a program providing tor flood control, navigation and power development of the «ntlre Mississippi river system and Ita tributai]^.
