Atomic Plans Stolen,
Returned In Flatbush
NEW YORK, May 17 (JP) A
- government car carrying 10 non-
secret atomic energy commission
blueprints was stolen from a
Brooklyn street corner today and
abandoned two hours later with
Police said they believed the car
had been taken "for a joy ride'
by persons bound for a good time
at Coney Island. It was aban
doned on the Belt Parkway near
the famous playground.
None of the AEC blueprints
were missing from a brief case
that an atom plant inspector left
in the car while he went to lunch.
John Burt, a public relations
man at the Brookhaven National
Laboratories for research in
peacetime atomic energy use, lo
cated at Brookhaven, said the
blueprints would not have been
"particularly dangerous in, the
hands of an unauthorized person.
In Washington, a spokesman
for the Atomic Energy Comrnis
sion said the missing papers were
simply routine blueprints for
non-secret atomic c work. The
spokesman said a check with
Brookhaven showed there was no
cause for alarm in the loss.
"The worst thing is that the
government still is out one auto
mobile," the spokesman added.
Brooklyn police sped radio cars
to all bridges, ferry slips and
main highways leading out of the
borough to Manhattan, Staten Is
land and the rest of Long Island.
Atomic Energy Commission of
ficials said the blueprints dealt
with construction work at Brook
haven on a new nuclear reactor.
This is a pile of fissionable atom
ic material used for research in
controlfed chain reactions.

17 Per Cent Under
WINNIPEG, Man., May 17
(JP) Flood-stricken Winnipeg
was 17 per cent under water to
day and more areas of this prair
ie city were threatened as sand
bagged dikes . weakened under
the added burden of a light rain.
The Canadian press estimated
that about one-fourth of the
city's 350,000 population had left
for higher ground since the ram
paging Red River of the north
rose over flood stage 27 days agd.
The river stood at 30.2 feet at
8 a.m. today unchanged since 6
p.m. yesterday. , . .
This puts the muddy waters of
the Red 12.2 feet above flood lev
el, make it the worst the city
has seen since 1826.
Most of the flooded area is
residential, with mud and debris
seeping through many of the
city's finest homes. Unofficial
estimates of damage in the busi

Officials called for intensified
patrols along the dikes at the
river, winding through the city,
and at the levee foundations.
Mud and rain caused the sand
bag reinforcements to slip and
slide. Some 5,000 workers are
employed in the flood control op
eration. South of Winnipeg, all the way
to the U. S. border, a flood lake
of 540 square miles has covered
the wide river valley, inundating
every town but one Letellier.
With rich farmlands under water,
crop damage was estimated up to
$15,000,000. Many of the towns
Winnipeg's flood troubles
started when unusually heavy
snow in North Dakota and north

Little of the water was absorbed
by the ground at first because
temperatures " in the minus 40s
had frozen the land several feet.
