U.S. FLOODS MISSISSIPPI RIVER

This aerial view shows the wild rush of Mississippi River flood water through the gap dynamited by army engineers in levee of Birds Point, a new floodway of Madrid, Mo., Jan. 26, 1937. The opening eased pressure on levee protecting Cairo, Ill., which between Ohio and Mississippi Rivers at confluence was in danger of almost complete submergence. (AP Photo)
