LITTLE CHANGE IN
(By A??oelated Preu.)
MEMPH1S, TBNN., March 3.?There Is
Uttle change ln the river situation to
nlght, although tho waters are stlll slow?
ly rislng. The gauge to-nlght shows n
stago of 84.8 feot and three-tenths above
the danger Une. Tho Weather Bureau has
glven notlce that It wlll hold Its faoillties
ln readlness to issue special flood warn
ings should the situation take a turn for
the worse, It ls expeoted that the river
from Memphls to Helena, Ark., wlll show
but Uttle ohange ln tho noxt day or
two. It Is thought very probable at tho
ond ot that tlme that tho waters wlll
take a sudden boom and.that past records
may be smashad ond untol'd damage
The englneers are stlll confldent of the
lovees holding even lf tho floodi roaches
