29 Jan 1938 Clyde Hawthorne in flood - : The Star's Red river pictures were made...
: The Star's Red river pictures were made between 2 and 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon when the stream reached a standstill at 33.1 feet, compared with flood- stage of 25 feet and an all-time flood mark of 35.6 in 1035. The pictures were made on the west (Miller county) county) bank, opposite Fulton. TOP LEFT—There's a divorce in this family. High water has stranded the rooster on a table on the house porch, while the hen is perched precariously on an overturned overturned coop in the foreground. The scene is a flooded farm of J. B. Shults on the west edge of the river, and the photo was made from a boat. TOP RIGHT—Old Red river, its fearful eddies showing showing plainly in the foreground, while in the background lies Fulton, with the flood almost up to the levee top. The picture looks east from the Missouri Pacific railroad railroad bridge. BOTTOM LEFT—Farmers conic through the home gate in a boat. The men are Clyde Hawthorne and William William Wheat. The picture was made from the porch of the house in top picture, BOTTOM RIGHT—Livestock stranded on a minor levee, photographed from a boat.
