A weekend downpour of more than half a foot caused damage estimated at 15 million dollars to the city and suburbs, and hundreds of thousands of dollars more elsewhere in northern Illinois and Indiana. The Weather Bureau predicted showers tomorrow but said the deluge which spilled rivers over their banks and made Chicago and environs a veritable swampland appeared ended.

Saturday until the sky cleared Monday night was 6 72 inches in Chicago and more than 9 75 inches m Blue Island a southern suburb.
