Send Sfreams Higher By The Associated Presl Rivers and creeks in some sec- tions of Oklahoma surged to flood stage today, fed by unremitting rains which turned roads in many rural areas into quagmires. The weather bureau said the Nprth Canadian at Woodward stood at 4.2 feet early today and was rising rapidly. Virtually all rural roads were impassable because of three days of precipitation which totaled as high as seven inches at Durant. More Rain Due No relief, from the downpour was expected for at least another day, the weatherman reported. The forecast is for more rain ex- cept snow in the Panhandle today tonight and Wednesday. There 'is expected to be no decided change m temperature, with the low to- night 25 to 30 degrees in the Panhandle to 45 to 50 in the southeast. Snow still blanketed the Pan- handle area but the worst of the storm which swept down from Colorado seems lo have ended. Highway officials at Guymon re- .ported that at p. m. yesterday Boise City had 24 inches of snow and it still was falling. That was the last message received from the far western Panhandle city Guymon reported three inches of snow. At Four Corners, 24 miles west of Guymon, on U. S. highway 64, 20 automobiles were reported stalled. Water was over the high- way throughout the area, and was hub deep at some points. A deep snow covered U. S. highway 54 southwest of Guymon and traffic was halted between Guymon, Amarillo and' Dalhart Texas. From all sections of the state, reports show unusual amounts of rain with no apparent letup in sight. Durant reported one of the heaviest rain falls, over a four day 7.06 inches. Bryan county country roads are virtual- ly impassable. The rain at Tulsa since Thurs- day now totals 5.71 inches. At Duncan, Stephens county rainfall since Friday totalled 2.1 inches.

County's Cotton Crop Unimpressive For This Season Ponlotoc county's cotton crop for this year seems lo be about the same as last year's, very low. Appro jnalely 75 per cent of tfiis country's crop has already been harvested, and only C50 bales have reached the gins at Slonc- wull, Ada and Allen. _ Only 3C3 bales had been ginned in Pontotqc county to October 18. These figures are a far cry from those of earlier years in the county, such as for 1924's crop and for 1919. Back in May of 1921 it was estimated that bales were still being held by county farmers with prices 6.5 to 11 cents on the streets and with an average of more than 100 bales daily being shipped from Ada. A large percentage of the crop was lost due to boll weevils and to rain. Pontotoc county in former years ranked as one of the highest producers of cotton in the .state, but in more recent years it has faded far down. The highest pro- ducing counties in the state now arj usually Muskogee and Caddo counties. Although Oklahoma is not up par in cotton, the national crop will be about the same. Arkansas has a larrje crop with approxi- mately bales already in. Texas has ginned around one mil- lion bales already. The Rio Grande valley in south Texas boasts the largest cotton crop in its history. With about 80 per cent of c'rop already in, Oklahoma has around bales. By The Associated Pren Heavy balloting in many big population centers pointed to- ward a possible record "off-year" vote today as Americans chose a new congress in Ihe first peace- lime general elections in six years. Election officials called the early turnout in Chicago "very heavy" although Illinois had neither governorship nor senior- Sal races. In Ohio, it was "unusually heavy." In Michigan it was the same. Similar reports came from Pennsylvania. Kansas City. Mo, reported an exceptionally heavy early vote. The first precinct to report wag Pointe Aux Barques in Huron county, Michigan. Twelve of Ihe 13 eligible vot- ers there cast straight republi- Cc.n ballots, one a straight demo- cratic. The count from the pre- cinct in 1944 was 14 republican, six democratic. In 1942, last off- year election, republicans carri- ed the precinct, 7-6. Weather Generally Favorable For the country as a whole, fine fall weather encouraged a large vote.

On that prime issue, republi- cans confidently predicted the democrats would be swept out of power in congress, where they have held the upper hand in both houses since 1932. Democrals, generally fighting a defensive bailie against GOP assaults on their handling of re- conversion problems, conceded they may suffer some losses. But they contended they will keep the legislative machinery in their grasp.
