Readings ranged down to as far as 47 below zero in Drummond, Mont. The mercury plunged to zero or below in at least 19 states. Low marks that had stood for as long as 81 years were erased from the weather books. The arctic air mass moved south and east, bringing shudders and suffering to added millions.

Eight inches of snow coated the ground in parts of Arkansas andj Tennessee and five inches or more That was the question posed time and again by Justice Floyd Jackson Tuesday at the Supreme Court's hearing on the volatile legislative reapportionment issue. To this question there were an- swers as diverse as opinions in Oklahoma on reapportionment. Range of Answers They range from "do to a request for a court order re- apportioning the House and Senate in accordance with the constitu- tional formula that has been ig- nored for years. jal reapportionment.

The constitution also says the chambers should be apportioned to conform with population shifts after every 10-year census. Recent reapportionment acts by the legislature haven't conformed to Ihe constitutional formula.

What brought about the hearing blanketed much of the rest of the South. Gov. Ross Barnett declared a state holiday in Mississippi be- cause of the storm. Temperatures were not expect- ed to get above freezing during the day in some sections of Dixie. Some of the nation's top mis- sile experts were marooned in their homes atop Monte Sano Mountain in Huntsville, Ala. Elsewhere temperatures ranged from freezing, or 32 degrees, to -42 at Drummond, Mont., early to- day. The Midwest was by far the widest area in the grip of the bit- ter cold, the worst of the new ear. Chicago's -11 degrees at 2 a.m. was the lowest reading for the date in 74 years when -10 was re- corded.

Added Dimension Suits were filed by prospective legislative candidates asking the court to force the board to'hold elections. The case took on extra dimen- sions with briefs filed by Edmond- son and the senators. Four sides to the question were presented: 1. Attorneys for the prospective candidates said the board should be forced to follow the 1961 House apportionment act and the 1941 Senate apportionment act even though they don't conform with the constitution.
