Commit.tee For Flood Control Elected
In (Chicagro Coference To Prevent'
Possibility Of Future Floods
(By Associated Press)
NEW ORLEANS, June 1.-Having
engulfed approximately 10,000 square
miles, or two-thirds of the alluvial
land of Louisiana, as it strained from
more than a dozen crevasses, the un-
precedented Mississippi valley flood
slowely drained into the Gulf of Mex-
ico tonight with falling stages every-
where except in the south portion.
In the central part of the Missis-
sippi river, however, high water
again was threatened, and at Cairo,
Ill., the weather bureau predicted 47
feet, two feet above flood stage, by
Sunday. At New Madrid, Mo., which
suffered severely a month ago, new
dikes were being thrown up in anti-*
cipation of more high water.
A lake more than 235 miles long and
ranging from 50 to 100 miles wide,
lies over the lowland along the west
side of the Mississippi river and
through the level basin of the Atcha-
falya river.
As ridges of land emerged from the
flood *with recession of waters to the
north, another great exodus was about
to begin. Joyful refugees, glad that
they can go back to the homes from
which they were driven by the raging
waters, prepared to set sail on the
receding sea to be in their houses and
ready to plant crops as quickly as
they can get into the fields.l
Twenty parishes were involved in
the sweep of the flood through Louis-
iana, and thousands of acres went un-
der water where floods had never
been known within memory of the
inhabitants. Major John C. Gotwals,
army engineering corps, estimated
that 6,400,000 acres were submerged+
from the northern boundary. of the
state to the Gulf coast.
Return to Point Coupee
Fifty, persons have gone back to
their homes in Pointe Coupee parish,
overwhelmed by the last flood from '
McCrae crevasse. Diminished flow
from that break has resulted in re-
cesssion of flood levels. Far to the
north in Ouchita parish nearly half
the land affected by the overflow has
been planted, advices received here
today said.
A general exodus back to the farms
is in sight in the Bayou Des Glaises
section. The inhabitants hope to get
fixed up and put crops in the ground
in time to assure a harvest.
The weather bureau reports that
considerable water still is poring fromI
the Cabine Teele and Winter Quarters
crevasses on the Mississippi river, and
concludes that this water may prolong
flood conditions in the Tensas and
Atchafalaya basins. The weather bu-
reau said that the chief effect to the
lower valley of the new flood up the
river might be prolongation of the
present flood in some sections.
CHICAGO. June 1.--First steps to-
ward organization of the Chicago
Flood Control conference sponsored
by the mayors of Chicago, St. Louis,
and New Orleans, were taken late to-
day when a group of 75 men, forming
the advance guard of the thousands
expected tomorrow from 27 Missis-
sippi valley states, met and authorized
ap~pointment of a committee of 11 to
fix a program of procedure.
Prograin Is Outlined
The conference program itself was
outlined in the formal call-for the
purpose of formulating practical
plans for presentation to the Federal
government through petition, the ful-
fillment of which will prevent future
flood catastrophes in the Mississippi
valley"-and the Republican and
Democratic leaders in the prelimin-

ary meeting stressed the necessity for
harmony and the submerging of per-
sonal plans and ideas in reaching a
set of resolutions looking towards that
The hour for the opening session
was fixed at 2 o'cloc in the Grand
ballroom of the Hotel Sherman, which{
tonight was being dressed in the na-
tional colors and those of the various
states which will be represented.
A special section of 200 seats was
marked off for members of President
Coolidge's cabinet, United ,States sen-
ators, members of the National House
of Representatives and governors.

tary of war, was enroute to Chicago

Cardboard Squares And Possibility Of
Temporary Cheering Section Awake
Storm Of Opposition
Violent protest was registered by
the Student council in its meeting last
night against the new regulation of
the Athleti association prohibiting
extra tickets to the members of the
cheering section next fall. The action
of the Athletic association was taken,
it is said, due to the fact that in-
stances of sudents scalping the extra
tickets had come to their attention.
Unanimous opposition was also
voiced by the members of the. council
to the new plan of using cardboard
squares in place of the uniforms for
the bloc "M" in the new stadium, and
the tentative plan of making the
cheering section temporary instead of
permanent for all of the home games.
The Athletic association has recently
ruled that no students will have to
take places in the cheering section for
the whole season, making it necessary
to fill the block for each game.
At the close of the meeting a reso-
lution was drawn up to be forwarded
to the Athletic association protesting
against the regulation recently pass-
ed by them prohibiting students in the
cheering section from securing extra
tickets. The opinion of the members
of the council was unanimous on the
point that few students would be
willing to participate in the cheering
section if by so doing they lost their
option of securing their allotment of
extra tickets.
Uniforms Thought Effectite
The uniforms on the other hand, it
was felt, present a very fine appear-
ance throughout the course of the
game, and are effective in any weather
conditions or any instance. The uni-
forms were used last fall and the
councilmen were of the opinion- that
for the first trial they were especially
The action of the Athletic associa-
tion in refusing to make the section
permanent for the season eliminates
the possibility of using the uniforms,
since they cost a dollar and it would
not be worthwhile for' students to buy
them for a single game, or even two
Pending the outcome of the protest
which the council forwarded to the
Athletic association last night there
was no decision reached by the coun-
cilm n, but the opinion was unani-
mous that abolishing the privileges
of extra seats for those who partici-
pate 'in the cheering'section and mak-
ing the section a temporary group
with cardboard squares were both un-
wise policies.
Will Consult With Assocation
The matter will also be takeh up
with the Athletic, association -by the
two councilmen who hold membership
in that body, although it is possible
that the Athletic'body will not meet in
time to alter its policy. The members
of the Atheltic board feel, it is report-
ed, that the project of cardboard
squares will be more or less experi-
mental the first year in the new sta-
dium, and that if it fails a return can
be made to the permanent uniformed
group.. The attitude of the Athletic
association is to the effect that pro-
viding sudents seats near the 50 yard
line for the cheering section is a val-
uable concession to the students in
itself and that the actual operation of
the cheering section is of secondary.

importance to this opportunity, it was
reported by members of the council
committee who consulted with the
athletic authorities.
t In addition to the business in con-
nection with the cheering section sit-
uation the council took, up the ques-
tion of ailling in plans for the Fresh-
men week which is to be held next
fall.. Fred Asbeck, '29, newly elected
councilman, appointed to consult Prof.
William A. Frayer on the question, re-
ported that 50 seniors could be )used
as upperclass advisors to the fresh-
men next fall. Steps were immediate-
I ly taken by the council to provide the
50 men for the puropse. Members of
the senior honor societies, Mjchi-
gamua, Vulcans, and Druids, together
with members of the Student council
will be solicited to assist in the work.
