Weather Experts Refuse
To Make Prediction On
The Subject
(By Associated Press)
Flood inundated a part of Kentucky
yesterday after showers and heavy
rain had freshened portions of the
parched Middle West.
Prairie state residents said this
meant the beginning of the end of the
costly drought.
Weather experts, however, would
make few predictions on that subject.
They said the rains were caused by
the "collision" of cool air from cen-
tral Canada and the heated atmos-
phere which has hovered over the
north central states.
Whatever they did for the farm'
belt's wilted crop, the showers tem-
pered the intense heat wave in all but
a few states. The day saw the tem-
perature drop from its three-figure
high in all the mid-continent states
except Missouri and Kansas, whichl
were-missed also by the rain.
The mercury climbed again to
marks of 109 and 107 in those long-
suggering states and approached 100
in down-state Illinois. Fifteen more
heat fatalities were reported -seven
in St. Louis, bringing the summer's
total to 407; one in Jefferson City,
Mo.; four in Kansas City; two in
Chicago, and one in Michigan.
The hottest town in the plains
states was Topeka, Kansas, where l
noon found the mercury at 109 de-
grees, the highest reading ever re-
ported for that time of day and within
two derfee ofthe 2.11-imh ata -r

PALO ALTO, Aug. 10. -OfP) -
Former President Herbert Hoover was
in a jovial, smiling mood today as
telegrams of congratulation poured
into him home here on his 60th birth-
day and friends and neighbors called
"I have never felt better in my life,"
he explained, as he sauntered through
the garden of his San Juan hill home
on the Stanford campus.
His two dogs, "Pet," a police dog,
and "Weeige," a Norwegian elkhound,
which once frolicked on the White
House lawn, trailed at the heels of
their master and growled for the priv-
ilege of sitting at his feet when Hoo-
ver rested.
Mr. Hoover declined to talk on na-
tional issues, although one questioner
pointed out "there are many interest-
ing things.to talk about."
"That's just the trouble," Mr. Hoo-
ver said, with a chuckle. 'The inter-
esting things are those we can't talk
He was slightly tanned from his
recent trip to Yosemite Park with
former Secretary of Agriculture Ar-
thur M. Hyde, and he remarked, some-
what proudly, that he had caught the
limit of fish each day they were there.
Mr. Hoover was asked about his
birthday cake, and he replied there
would be none at his dinner tonight.
Among the callers who paid their
respects were Laurence J. Judd, for-
ier governor of Hawaii, aid James
Garfield, son of the President and
secretary of the interior in the cabinet
of Theodore Roosevelt.

At the same time it was announced

a forfeit should he play football be-
fore the end of the diamnod season,

The possibility of one of the city's

Grain Yield In
Thirty Years
Secretary Wallace Denies
That There Will Be Any
Food Shortage Danger
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. - (P) -
The smallest yield of grain in 30
years or more was predicted today by
Federal crop reporters, but Secretary
of Agriculture William A. Wallace
reiterated his belief that there was
no danger of food shortage.
,The drought's ravages affected not
only the grain crops but directly or
indirectly the entire food supply of the
Nation and cotton as well.

For example,. the Crop Reporting
Board forecast that this year's pro-
duction of corn would be only 1,607,-
108,000 bushels, a decline of more
than a half billion bushels over its
estimate of conditions on July 1. The
average yield of corn is around 2,500,-
000 bushels.
. The wheat yield, to the surprise of
many observers, increased six mil-
lion bushels today over the July pre-
diction. The estimate today was 390,-
960,000 bushels, the lowest figure since
the 1890s.
The dry seige is rapidly paring the

cattle and sheep are being bought by
