Floods Recede After Youths Riot in Causing Heavy Loss Over Families Affected in 5 States By The Associated Press Floods still menaced some areas in five eastern and cen- tral states today but waters from swollen rivers and streams were receding in most sections. The worst of the mid-winter flooding ap- peared temporarily ended. The chief problem for the thousands hit by last week's devastating floods in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Indiana was the huge cleanup job. The Red Cross has estimated more than families were affected by the floods, with thousands forced tem- porarily from their homes. Cold air, with snow or rain, spread from the central plains across the northern half of the country, adding to the incon- venience of flood victims. Great Late Tonight .In Ohio, one of the states hardest hit by overflows, the Ohio river was the last of the state's waterways threatening further flooding. At Cincinnati the big river edged up to 55 feet, 3 feet above flood stage. The weather bureau predicted an expected 57-foot crest will be reached near midnight to- night. However, only minor damage was expected unless fresh rains should hike it above the 60-foot mark. Floods in Ohio caused an es- timated damage of mil- lion in 76 of Ohio's 88 counties. In western Pennsylvania, he cleanup job was in prog- many roads were re-op- ened and public transporta- ion was returning slowly to normal. Schools and indus- ries also planned to resume operations as soon as possi- ble. At Meadville, Pa., the ice- choked French creek returned lowly to its banks and some if the persons evacuated moved back into their homes. Efforts continued by demoli- ion experts to blast openings Italian Cabinet Members Resign Rome Premier Amin- tore Fanfani's cabinet resign- ed today because of a defec- tion by a minority moderate socialist. ,.The 50-year-old pro-western prime minister who heads the Christian democrats handed his resignation and those o his 20 ministers to President Giovanni Gron'chi.

Germans Detroit Deputy Un- der Sec. of State Robert Murphy said today Russia's uneasiness over conditions in Soviet-ruled East Ger- many account partly for the Kremlin's readiness to talk over the German problem. "The U. S. S. R. has fail- ed utterly -to win over the East German he said, "and Moscow leadership is concerned lest a wave of public and international sentim e n t should reunite the people." Murphy reviewed Ger- man policy in an address before the Economic club of Detroit. He also cautioned busi- ness leaders against believ- ing that the visit of deputy Soviet Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan would suddenly open the way to large scale Russian-American trade. Some increase in Soviet purchases of equipment is possible, in such fields as chemicals, construct ion, mining machinery and tire manufactures if such items are not on the govern- ment restricted list. But Murphy said no sig- nificant Soviet buying of American consumer goods is likely. Further, he said, a big permanent increase in Soviet American trade is unlikely because Russia has a limited amount of dollars to pay. Stevenson Blames People for Of Education in U. S.

Police said that he was killed by a stab wound in the chest.

Used Only by Army Only the army now uses the draft, but Finucane told the committee young men would not enlist in any of the serv- ices in the necessary num- bers if it were not a matter of enlisting "in lieu of being in- ducted."

The pope did not announce the date for the beginning of the council. Because of tha gathering's great size and possibly long duration, the preparation may take many months. The meeting does not have to be held at the Vatican or in Rome, but other sites seem unlikely. Ecumenical means world- wide, representing the church. The 20 previous ecu- menial councils were called to deal with major problems ing the church, such as heresy and schism, to resolve ques- tions of faith or to establish dogma. Invitation to Unity The Vatican announcement said: "Regarding the celebration of the ecumenical council, this, in the thought of the holy father looks not only to the edification of the Christian peoples, but is intended as an invitation to the separate (Christian) communities to seek unity which so many de- sire in all parts of the world." This was seen as an invita- tion for a return to the fold of the churches which have brok- en away from Rome, primari- ly the Eastern Orthodox.
