Full Page of Flood Picturet on Page AS. By the Associated Press. A slight earth tremor injected a new and fearsome element into the Mississippi Valley flood fight today near Tiptonville, Tenn., as a pick and-shovel army of 115,000 men labored along both banks of the river to strengthen levees against a de gtructive “super flood.” Dike workers and townspeople re ported there was a brief trembling of the earth about 3 a m. in the area where a century ago an earthquake formed the vast Reelfoot Lake east of the river. A hasty inspection by engineers Indicated the earthen walls were not breached. "It lasted for several seconds,” ■aid Chief of Police Pete Smith, "but there wasn’t any damage. The levees are still holding above town.” The Weather Bureau said today rain was expected tonight and Sun day over the Ohio Valley. Occasional rains are expected over the lower Mississippi Valley. Warmer weather was forecast over most of the flooded areas, but it will be colder Sunday. Defenses Are Bolstered. Meanwhile a pick and shovel army, bolstered by reinforcements, raised breastworks on both sides of the river and awaited the aero hour, to come when the crest of the flood from the Ohio River sweeps past Cairo, 111., probably next Wednesday, and begins its rush down the Mississippi to the Gulf. Then will come the test of the gigantic billion-dollar levee system. Anxious thousands in the river low lands between Cairo and New Orleans prayed they would be saved from the fate of their fellow Americans in the Ohio River basin. The pick and shovel army waged a strenuous and apparently successful fight to hold the dike across Slough Landing Neck, a few miles above Tiptonville, Tenn., and redoubled its efforts to raise a bulkhead as the flood waters inched toward the top of a 60-foot seawall at Hickman, Ky. Live Stock Removed. Preparing for any eventuality, re moval of live stock and cattle was Under way in threatened lowlands along the 'Mississippi from Hickman to the mouth of the White River in Arkansas, while evacuation of resi dents along broken tributary levees Virtually was completed. On the lower Ohio the rampaging flood waters forced complete evacua tion of 8,000 persons from Paducah, Ky., after the State health commis sioner reported the city was unin habitable. Military authorities were ordered to use force if necessary to remove the citizenry. As the water crept higher 4,000 em battled residents of Cairo, 80 years old today, could only watch and wait for the crisis. Its seawall raised by hurriedly built bulkheads to 63 feet, Army Engineers confidently predicted the old river shipping center, resting in a "V” formed by the Ohio and Mississippi, would escape as it has done through all the floods since the Civil War. Backwaters of the Ohio forced resi dents of Karnak and Ullin, small towns on the Cache River in IlUnois. to higher ground, and at Mounds 300 persons awaited rescue from second Story windows.

CAIRO. 111., January 30.—Slowly, so slowly as to belie its power, the mighty Ohio River rose today to 58.75 feet bringing nearer and nearer its cer tain test of Cairo’s emergency defense against inundation. Each 60 minutes, at a rate of one one-hundredth of a foot—12-100ths of an inch, a measurement barely per ceptible to the eye—the river crept up. hour by hour during the night, to the highest stage in the history of the city, 80 years old today. One and one-fourth feet of leeway— a desperately small margin of certain safety—remained before the turbid waters topped the city’s 60-foot •'sea wall” and lapped at a hastily con structed wood and dirt bulkhead thrown up In a last-minute effort to stave off the river. Of Cairo's 13.500 population, only 4,000 persons, all but 500 of them men who had labored to strengthen and raise the protecting embankments, still were here to await the Ohio’s whim—and the river’s whim along its upper course has been devastation and destruction.

Rates of the Potomac Electric Power Co., beginning Monday, will be reduced by a total of $504,021, with the cut divided nearly equally between do mestic and commercial consumers, under an order issued today by the Public Utilities Commission. The rate reduction results from ap plication of the sliding scale plan for annual adjustment of consumers’ bills, on which a public hearing was held Monday. At the time, commission calculations showed the company had earnings during the past year of $1, 000,266 in excess of the basic return of 6% per cent fixed in the plan. The new rates will mean a reduc tion of about 20 cents a month on the bill of the average domestic consumer, calculating that such average con sumer uses 84 kilowatt hours of power a month. The commission did not approve the request of the Federa tion of Citiaens’ Associations for a reduction of the basic return allowed the company on an agreed valuation from 6% per cent to 6 per cent. The commission found that evidence taken at the hearing tended to show that the rate base of the company— that is, the estimated value of its plant for rate-making purposes—was $70, 136,259.79 as of December 31, 1936. It is against this figure that the basic return is applied to determine the amount of excess profits during the past year, which sum is used in cal culating what should be the rate changes for the new year. There have been annual rate reduc tions each year since 1925, when the sliding scale plan was instituted. Last year the rate cut amounted to more than $300,000, and the much greater rate cut this year, in spite of the re duction in the basic return from 7 to (See PEPCO, Page A-ll.)

Lewis, chairman of the Committee for Industrial Organization, for the peace conference when she received Sloan's message. Murphy Ready to Act. Before the breakdown of the agree ment became known Gov. Murphy of Michigan said: "I have plans which I could not put into effect while Federal conferences are in progress. If I don't get good news from Washington I will be pre pared to act immediately to bring the parties together.” One usually well Informed person here said John Thomas Smith, New York attorney for General Motors, planned to go ahead Monday with a suit to evict ‘‘sit-down’’ strikers from G. M. C. plants by court order. This person said Smith advised against the proposal that would have renewed negotiations with the strik ing United Automobile Workers. Friends said Miss Perkins was “stunned" by Sloan's decision, but still was determined to bring the cor poration and union leaders together around a conference table. It was the second time Sloan had left the Capital during an attempt to find some basis for negotiations. When he left Washington after talking with Miss Perkins last week, Sloan said he could see no use in further conferences. He declined Miss Perkins’ later request that he return, and President Roosevelt expressed dis appointment he had refused.

MOSCOW, January 30.—Karl Radek was spared from death as a traitor against the Soviet government, au thoritative sources declared today, 60 his testimony might be used at future conspiracy trials. The fiery Radek, who refused to beg for clemency and leered at the un expected leniency of his Judges, was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment and deprived of his political life for five more.

It was their last chance and despite it, informed sources said, the first an nouncement that “the verdict of the court has been carried out”—meaning the 13 had been shot—was expected tomorrow.

The Senate today passed the Robin son bill setting up a commission to make plans for a public auditorium in the National Capital.

It designates the chairmen of the Senate and House Public Buildings and Grounds Committees and Secretary of Interior Ickes as a board of three to study the subject and report later at this session recommendations as to location and estimated cost of an audi torium suitable to be used for inaugural ceremonies, large conventions and other important events that are held In the Capital. The commission also is instructed to advise Congress how the cost of the structure should be borne. Approved two days ago by the Sen ate committee headed by Senator Con nally. Democrat, of Texas, the bill was taken up as soon as the Senate met today. The only debate was a statement by Minority Leader McNary that he had intended to ask that the bill go over until Monday because he thought it oontained the legislation to provide for the auditorium.

In the next breath he told his ex ultant Reichstag and the world that “the time of so-called surprises" from Nazi Germany is “ended.” He pledged Germany’s “loyal co operation” in the problems that beset humanity. He renounced German “Isolation.” He asked friendship with Prance. He reiterated Germany’s claim for restoration of her former colonies and left the door open for an “arrange ment” with Portugal, although saying nothing about the expected acquisition of Angola.
