W) — The terror Hint tornadoes brought to .seven Oklahoma communities Rave way today to [he dreary and heart-breaking job of picking up lhe pieces and .starling over. There were three dentils to learn to toilet, and more than a doyen victims are still hi hospitals with serious Injuries. The twisters, probably just two of them, churned (com Oklahoma to Kansas along the dfagonnal face of a stationary cold front. Kending from Southwest to Northeast, the first one bit Canton, LoiiKdale, Hotn.stcad ami Isabel) H. The second tornado, headud the .s»tne way but farther north, passed close to Enid and Mcdford | and raked Blackvvell en route to i Kansas Each did up to half a mU- lion dollars dumnge. | The tlrst WHS (he worst, it tore part of Canton down tuui killed !

A brick church was razed lo the ground, but across the alley a flimsy frame garage stood untouched. : A (J-months-old baby girl was snatched from her home and set down gently in a field several hun- t dred feet away. j One house was unmarked outside I —but. the inside was crammed with debris carried through the windows by the blast. Although tornado winds approach '100 miles per hour—nature's most concentrated form of fury—their peculiar destruction comes from the extreme low pressure, a near vacuum that apparently lies In the vortex. Surrounded by this sudden vacuum, a houseful of air blasts outward like a bomb blast, scattering Ihp timbers far and wide. The house ol Charles SUiwers was taken apart almost naJJ nail and spread over ten acres The body was found 200 feet from the foundation.
