CLARKSDALE, Miss., April 8.-(/P)

wrought havoc in the Mississippi
river lowlands of the state, Arkan-

and menacing the lives of people.

No national crisis would have oc-
curred had Snowden failed to re-

April 14, for the nation's $4,000,000,-

nounced either by the prime minis-'
ter or by a deputy chancellor.
But a Laborite budget would lose
much picturesque popular appeal
without the canny little Yorkshire-
man scrapping with his critics in
the house of commons.
Ordinarily in the rough and tum-
ble of politics the Laborite guardian
of the British national purse asks
for no quarter and gives non.
But in his unequal struggle for'
health, Snowden at 66, still a giant
of inteligence in finance and ec-,
nomics, is but a vulnerable scrap cf

Sleet Coating on Wing
WASHINGTON, April 8.-()-
The tricky factor weather has offi-
cial blame for the airplane crash
that killed Coach Knute Rockne
and seven others at Bazaar, Kan.,
After saying unofficially that ice
broke the plane propeller, the com-
merce department asserted Tues-
day that a coating of sleet on the
wings of the plane apparently was
responsible for the mishap.
In formal findings, the depart-
ment said its aeronautics inspector
found evidence which indicated
weather was the "primary cause
of the accident."
After the plane pilot received
radio reports from Wichita, Kan.,
that the weather was clear at that
point, the statement said, he prob-
ably attempted to get above the
"In doing so," the findings, "it
is thought that ice collected on the
plane and possibly rendered inoper-
ative certain instruments that func-
tion through the air stream.
"Without these instruments to
assist the pilot, the plane apparent-
ly went into a steep dive. The re-
sults seem to indicate that on com-
ing out of this maneuver, the
change of direction occurred with
such unusual rapidity as to build
up an enormous load on the wings,
which in turn brought about the
The decision was changed, it was
explained, because a missing pro-
pellor had been found. It was
thought at first ice had shattered
the propeller, the subsequent vi-
bration tearing off a wing, but the
missing part was discovered buried
in the ground.
