The major break In this area was the washing-out of a large: bridge north of Chestnut on the Beason-Chestnut blacktop mad on Monday.

The main bridge over Salt Creek is scheduled to be rebuilt this summer so this will now re- quire two bridges instead of one. All creeks and lake ditches in the area have been running wild. ly out of their banks, but are now getting back into their ehannels. !Lowlands, however, are ,going' to have water on them for some time as the ground was already so saturated that it can't get away. The road to Lincoln was under water for a short time but a brok- en levee at the Deer Creek fish- ing area, released a heavy deluge and helped clear the water from the road. Many basements in Mount Pul- aski were flooded' with storm waters which the sewers couldn't handle fast enough. Pumps were installed at various points to help get the water out of the sewers to lessen the hazards of backup waters. Some basements in the country were also filled with wat- er following Sunday's heavy rain. G. Conrad Miller, county super- intendent of highways, has been making an inspection of the roads and said damage to the county secondary highways and town. ship roads has been tremendous, especially to ditches, filled hy eroding silt.

He will take over again as coach of basketball and baseball as well as being advanced to assistant superintendent of the district. This offers a nice ad- vancement and speaks well for  his previous record there. While Hi,,topper teams have not been too successful this sea- son, Jim has made a lot of friends who will be reluctant to see him leave.
