Thousands of rescuers battled against time Thursday in search of about 125 people still missing after torrents of mud smashed into villages in southern Italy, killing at least 55 people. The government civil protection agency, which has the grim duty of updating the death toll, issued a fresh bulletin Thursday evening saying 55 bodies had been recovered. Agency officials raised the number of people believed to be missing to 125, more than 50 over what it had been estimating for most of the day.

At least 33 people were dead and 70 missing Wednesday after days of downpours drove rivers of mud and rocks through several towns in southern Italy, sweeping away cars and flattening houses. About 2,000 people were left homeless after the mud spewed into low-lying villages in the Campania region around Naples. One village square, in Sarno, was turned into a muddy plain littered with half-buried debris, and a house on the edge of the square was flattened.

Congressional budget cutters took their axes to it. The vice president temporarily halted its construction. Even a harsh Italian winter marred the building process. Nearly a decade after it was planned, the Ronald Reagan Federal Building in Santa Ana is set to open next month--a year behind schedule but on budget. It is a spacious 10-story building draped in glass and marble that houses state-of-the art courtrooms and airy public galleries with sweeping views of the county.

After surviving the axes of congressional budget cutters and the knives of government cost reviewers, the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana faces another formidable challenge: where to get tons of Italian marble needed to adorn the building. Officials said the 10-story structure, which will house 14 elegant courtrooms, will not meet its December 1997 completion date because of contracting snafus and concerns over the quality of the travertine marble being quarried in Tivoli, Italy.
