Thousands Flee Ohio River Area CINCINNATI (AP)—A Weather Bureau forecast that heavy rains w’ould taper off today above Cincinnati brought a bit of good news but the Ohio River continued to surge toward its fourth highest level in history and highest since 1945. It Mas a cinch the situation would get worse before it starts to get better, particularly in the stretches of the river below Cincinnati. The weather bureau stuck to its prediction that the stage here would reach 66 feet by Thursday and cagily said ti 3 eventual crest probably would be higher. The stage was 62.8 feet at 8 a m. and rising at three-tenths of a foot an hour. Flood stage is 52 feet. The 1945 crest here was 69.2 feet on March 7. Thousands of persons here and both upstream and below Cincinnati already had been forced from their homes and evacuations were being continued. The rainfall, more than five inches here since 8 a.m. Sunday, turned to snow in the early morning hours and then that stopped. But upriver it still was raining. At least two deaths in Ohio Mere attributed to flooded roads. The southern half of Indiana and western Kentucky Mere hard hit.

More than 1,500 persons were moved from their homes in Falmouth. Ky., below Cincinnati as an earthen dam at Kincaid Lake was threatened. In Cincinnati, many low-lying streets were flooded along with the River Downs race track and the Coney Island amusement park. Upstream about 50 miles from Cincinnati, the business section of the little tobacco-growing center af Ripley, Ohio, was being evacuated with businesses being moved into tobacco warehouses. The same situation existed at other small riverfront towns. At dams near Ripley, Vanceburg, Ky., and Portsmouth. Ohio, the river was rising ct from three-tenths of a foot an hour. Portsmouth is protected by a flood wall. Pittsburgh weather forecasters predicted a stage of six to nine feet above flood stage from that city to Wheeling, W. Va. Throughout central and southern Ohio scores of roads were blocked by high water and many March Rains Already Top Average Total One of the major area problems last summer was water— lack of it. Water is a problem again today, this time too much of it. A flooded ditch along County Road 16, south of Gnadenhutten, claimed a life early this morning. Inconvenience and property damage reports are mounting as rain continues to douse the area. As of noon today, a total of 6.05 inches of rain had fallen since March I, including 2.79 inches within the last 24 hours. Normal rainfall for the entire month of March is 3.34 inches, which means the county already has 2.71 inches more than the average with 21 days to go. The perennial flooding of the Beaver Dam Creek area in New Philadelphia, numerous road closings, flooded basements and the like point up the problem. City crews in New Philadelphia were hurrying to complete an earthen dam on North Ave. NE where water had rushed into the basement of the Kiser Paint Mfg. Co. Inc. Ray Hunter, Kiser vice president, said there was approximately 2 feet of water in the plant at ll a.m. and it was still rising. He reported considerable damage U) pigments stored iii -the basement but said an estimate could not be made for at least a week. “Water started coming in about 8 or 8:15 this morning,” Hunter said. Earth for the dam is being hauled by truck from a soil bank near Tuscora Lake. Elsewhere in the northeast section of the city, file overflowing Beaver Dam Creek has caused major damage. The Jerry Rausch family was forced to evacuate their basement home at 249 Forbes Ave. NE because of the flood waters. I At 10:30 this morning the water j had reached within 3 feet of the The Frank Liggett home at 429 Kaserman Ave. NE is inundated by flood waters from Beaver Dam Creek. 'Cooperation' Hit As Firm Drops Phila Assignment Plans for the city's storm-water sewage system got a jolt Monday night when New Philadelphia Council learned that W. E. Quicksall & .Associates Inc. had turned down its invitation to submit a proposal for enlarging and extending the system. At its last session on Feb. 24, Council had approved the invitation to Quicksall, with no contract to be legal or binding until the firm’s proposal be studied and a decision made. In a letter directed to Service Director William Stevenson, the New Philadelphia engineering firm stated it had. in the past 2 weeks, tried unsuccessfully ll times to obtain preliminary in- Fire Damages 2-Story Home On Seven-Mile See OHIO RIVER, Page 2 See COUNTY FIGHTS Page 2 Newf Philadelphia Fire Chief Glenn Heck said this morning he has not set a damage estimate to a home at 1881 Seven Mile Dr. that was gutted by fire last night. The residence, occupied by the Ralph Anderson family, is owned by John Barlock, chief sheriff deputy. Firefighters, called at 8:21. had the blaze under control in 15 minutes although heavy damage was done to the first floor of the 2-story. home. Moderate damage was reported to the second floor. The structure, according to firemen, is insured, although the Andersons had no insurance on the contents. Firemen said* the I blaze, which started near the liv-ingroom. could have been caused by an ‘‘electrical short.” The fire was discovered by Larry Harris, no address given, who notified the Fire Depart ment. The Andersons are staying with relatives, according to firemen. Barlock’s brother, Carl, is operator of the Hi-Spot Bar in Dover, which was gutted by flames several weeks ago.

Holt, superintendent of public instruction of the State of Ohio, will be guest speaker when dedication ceremonies for the remodeled and new facilities at Dover High take place tonight at 8 in the gymnasium. formation needed to supply the proposal on the storm-water sewer. Even though Engineer Arnold Rosch had at several public meetings previously exhibited .the description of the scope of the work, the letter declared, Quicksall was now given to understand that this information “will not be made available.” “Since full cooperation would be necessary to the completion of the plans within the limited time available.” the letter went on. “we feel we must respectfully decline Council’s invitation to submit a proposal.” The Quicksall letter named Councilmen Gomer Watkins, William Hicks and Lloyd Dinger as members who had opposed letting the firm submit its proposal. It expressed appreciation to the rest of the Council “for their interest, cooperation and their expressed desire to have plans prepared locally if at all possible. “Speaking only as local employers and taxpayers, we respectfully suggest to those who opposed our submitting a proposal, that they re - evaluate their positions concerning area development,” the letter concluded. “It is entirely inconsistent to promote our area and industry, while, at the same time, being firmly against the consulation of local firms for city projects,” Watkins, at the end of the meeting, stood to protest the attack by Quicksall on himself and the 2 other councilmen. “I am not against the local businessman,” he insisted, and said he wanted the public to know it and that his past record in Council action would prove it. Watkins said his opposition to Quicksall stemmed from the fact that he had been present at previous meetings where another firm had been given the “go” signal on submitting the proposal. He declared he had not been present at any meeting in which the Quicksall firm had been approved. No other comment on the matter was made by any other council member, nor did Council President William Hinig suggest any further action.
