(AP) — A 10- story concrete and steel skeleton stands overlooking the downtown Topefca business district, mute evidence of ttoe mighty, force unleashed against the Kansas capital five years ago yesterday. It is the most dramatic, tangible remMler of the kiilier tpr- naido that cut a four-block wide path eietot miles long through this city of 125,000 people. One wall of this former office building stUl bears the ironic, laded sign: "A refuge in time of storm." The funnel in flhe 1966 storm touched ground southwest of Topefca and never once lifted until it reached the extreme northeast cornier of the city. There were 550 persons hi- jured. Some 2,500 families were directly affected. Eight hundred dwellings were destroyed. Another 810 suffered major damage. Four hundred had minor damage. All major structures on the Waistaibum University campus suffered damage ainid everal were a total loss. At the time it was the most damaging tornado ever known. Property loss was placed at $100 million. Its only rival sinice was the 1970 Lubbock, Tex., tornado. The storm reached the southwest limits of the city at 7:15 p.m., 13 minutes 'after Weather Service radar had identified the funnel. It lilted ait the Kansas River northeast of the city, 15 minutes later. Today apartment complexes have been rebuilt. Homes have been replaced and repaired. Washbum University has been reborn with three impressive new buildings and its repairable structures fully restored, 'and in some oases improved. Some emergency, portable classrooms are still in place, and young new trees dot the campus, otherwise, you would hardly know the university had ^almost been dealt a dearth blow five years ago. Follow the twister's path through the city and you will find, here and there, foundia- •tions standing starkly bare; an occasional structure that as been boarded up and not repaired. But these are exceptions rather than the rule. While time erases most of the physical traces of that 15-minute spree of nature and its agonizing aftermaith, it will remain engraved indelibly, however, Sn the minds of those who lived through its PEPPERMINT PAD 27 Haven le» Crtam or Sherbtt Reg. 45c SUNDAES (ixeept Hot Fudgt) 33c Sttfftn's Half & Half ..-.-.- Pt. 29e HOMEMADE LEMONADE Mad* from fresh Ltmons!

(AP) — Two more Presbyterian churches, one in Kansas City, Kan. and one in Jefferson City, Mo., have protested their national church council's $10,000 gift to the Angela., Davis Defense Fund. 7 Dr. E. Russell Lynd of the First United Presbyterian Church in Kansas City, Kan. said his church criticized the national action because Miss Davis is an avowed Communist, her family is capable of providing defense funds, and if they are not, U.S. law assures her of a fair trial. The Jefferson City church also said thfe grant was not needed to provide Miss Davis an adequate defense. Or. M. D.
