Freezing weather was expected In
Houston Friday morning with a tempera-
ture of 26 degrees or six degrees below

The coldest point in Texas at 8 p. m.
was Amarlllo 18 degrees; the warmest
at Brownsville 74 degrees at the same
time. The coldest point at 8 p. m. In the
United States was Helena Mont. where
the thermometer registered 22 degrees be
The heaviest rainfall recorded for Texas
