(Press photos) Shadow Lake Waters Burst Dam, Flood Road 30 Are Killed County Tahles Plea for Span Freeholders Fail to Act on Neptune's Request for New Bridge (Staff Correspondent) FREEHOLD The board of freeholders yesterday tabled a request by the Neptune township committee and the Shark River Hills Property Owners association that it construct a permanent structure to replace the wooden bridge over Shark river at Tucker's point. Freeholder Joseph Mayer said that he had been approached by Interested persons, but that he promised them no support. The condition of the present bridge, he said, is all right. The request was referred to the board as a whole for further consideration.
The board received another request from Leon Reussille, Sea Bright boro attorney, asking that the county contribute to a proposed project to construct two beachfront Jetties, four bulkheads and three additions to present jetties at a total estimated cost of S300.000. The boro. the attorney wrote, expects a $135,000 federal grant and seeks a 15 percent contribution from tlie county. Director Raymond L. Wyckoff commented that there is county property along the beachfront which should be protected.
The request was tabled for further consideration. County Asked to Take Road Committeeman Howard R. Woodward. Manalapan township, and Committeeman Herman Shteir, Millstone township, appeared before the board to ask the county to take over the extension of the Smithburg-Manalapan road in their townships. The road, they said, is about two miles long and is heavily traveled.
Director Wyckoff suggested the two townships might apply for state road funds, but the delegates said their townships were unable to pay even the 10 percent required in such state projects. The request was tabled for consideration. A representative of the Hill Dredging company, which submitted the low bid last week for dredging a channel at the proposed new Oceanic bridge, asked the board to return the bid as his firm needed its equipment for another job and was being hampered by the delay in starting the Oceanic work.

The British prime minister reached the conference scene after a 20 minute ferry trip across the Rhine from his own hotel at Petersburg. A black-uniformed drum corps beat a salute and blaekshirt elite guards presented arms with bayonets fixed as Chamberlain left his hotel. He had arrived there two hours earlier, having flown from London to Cologne and motored the rest of the way. Cheered by Nazis Nazi salutes greeted him even as he descended the hotel's grand stairway. There officials, guests and uniformed 1 guards shouted "Hell" with outstretched arms.
Chamberlain smiled warmly and hurried down a long length of carpet to a waiting open automobile. Sir Nevile Henderson, British ambassador to Berlin, followed behind him, chewing his cigar. Chamberlain seemed In extraordinary good humor. He said his flight from London to Cologne was particularly interesting because the plant flew so low he could study the "simply beautiful'' The warm reception given him by the German population, he said, was deeply impressive.

More than 150 were known to be dead in the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont and New Hampshire alone with 104 bodies already definitely Identified and the toll rising fast as flood threats added a new danger to storm-wracked New-England. The damage to property to hundreds of smashed boats, to growing or maturing crops, to homes, utilities, public buildings, transportation and communication was beyond calcula tion, rising to uncounted millions of dollars. How many thousands were homeless could not even be guessed. Many thousands of men and women in the great area of disaster troops, police, coast guardsmen, naval reservists.

Wr-From a maze of conflicting reports and a mass of wreckage, relief workers attempted today to count the dead and damage left on Long Island by a virtual tidal wave, a hurricane that attained a velocity of 100 miles an hour and torrential downpour. The unofficial toll of dead ranged as high as 30, with 100 missing, among them 20 passengers and a crew of nine on a ferryboat somewhere off Port Jefferson, where it was long overdue from Bridgeport, Conn. In the West Hampton Country club, a once pleasant retreat now under the pall of death, lay 12 bodies victims of the blow that leveled West Hampton Beach, summer playground for New York city society. Two women were known to have died on Fire Island, four miles off the south shore of Long Island. Two were killed at Rockville Center.
One died at Point Lookout, one at East Hampton and two in New York city. Additional reports, unverified officially, indicated possibly 10 more deaths. High Seas Batter toasts Northern and southern boundaries of Long Island Long Island sound and the Atlantic ocean shores, respectively were battered by high seas. Shoreside buildings were flattened; coast guard stations and even a lighthouse which had withstood 75 years of pounding by the waves were washed away. Thickly-settled residential sections also were hit.
Houses were crushed by the wind or carried away by huge waves. Farm lands were flooded and crops leveled. Highways became rivers and railroad tracks in some places were twisted masses of steel.

Hardgrove, Farmingdale. unless he is prohibited by court The vice chancelor announced his ruling after a full day of testimony in a hearing brought against Mr. Hard-grove and the Irvington National bank, testing the right of the former to keep the bank account which passed to him on the death of his aunt, Mrs. Hattie E.
Hardgrove. Harry C. Chandler. Union township, brought the action as administrator of the estate on behalf of nine other relatives. Chandler, a brother of the dead woman, was named administrator by the Essex surrogate Feb.
1 after Mrs. Hardgrove died intestate at Irvington. The petitioners charged the nephew influenced Mrs. Hardgrove to turn over the $9,500 on deposit in the Irvington bank and induced her to give him a joint interest in the account. It was also charged that Mrs.
Hardgrove, who was 77. was enfeebled when she agreed to the transfer. Witnesses testified that Hardgrove and his wife hod attended the aunt during her final illness while the late Mrs. Hardgrove's physician. Dr.
Frederick H. Lowell, attested her mental fitness, thriftiness and indomitable will. Sofa Burns at Red Bank (Staff Correspondent) RED BANK Local firemen were called out late yesterday afternoon Just before the storm abated by a small fire in the second floor living room of a house owned by Mrs. Helen B. Isaacs, at 31 Riverside avenue.
A sofa had caught fire and was tossed out a window by firemen. Deputy Fire Chief Raymond Brower said the origin of the fire could not be determined and estimated damage to furniture and woodwork at not more than $50. Box 121, Maple avenue and West Front street, was pulled by Joseph Yaneralla, Little Silver fireman, under the direction of Chief Brower after a still alarm had been sounded.

Boro firemen extinguished the blaze which burned out the motor cuing and part of the bow.
They said the fire apparently started from a short circuit that developed In the drenched motor of the craft because of the rocking of the boat. Not a single community along the coastline escaped. Boardwalks from Asbury Park south to Bay Head were ripped away, in some instances for a distance of a mile at a stretch by the tidal waves that eve-witnesses described as between 40 and 50 feet high. With them went portions of public buildings and private homes. An inflated blimp enevelope.
fastened to a mast at the Lakehust Naval Air station and used for experimental purposes, was ripped by the wind. Inland Areas Suffer Inland areas suffered from roaring winds that at times reached a velocity of over 100 miles an hour, as trees were felled, streams flooded and telephone and light service disrupted. Some municipalities were In darkness thruout the night as power company crewi were swamped by calls for assistance. Halsey D. Polhemus, vice president of the Jersey Central Power and Light company, said today a conservative estimate of the utility's loss by storm damage had been fixed at between $75,000 and $100,000.
"It was the worst storm in the his-tory of the company." Mr. Polhemuj declared as he revealed that an emergency crew was expected to arrive here from Pennsylvania at 5 p. to augment the company's local crew which has been at work repairing damage for the past 24 hours. The company official said he feared that new cables laid under the Asbury Park boardwalk last year would be a total loss. He added that many of the light standards on the long stretches of boardwalk wrecked in the southern section of the county were company property.
Trees Cause Line Breaks Comparatively few poles were lost, Mr. Polhemus reported. Falling tree were responsible for most line breaks, he said. The Barnegat area was badly affected and the New Lisbon station, servicing Hightstown, was shut down after water flooded the cellar.

Mr. Faulks was washed from a bulkhead in front of his home on the occanfront at Elberon avenue, Allen-hurst, carried 50 feet to sea and deposited back on the beach, penned in a 12-foot-wide area of frothing ocean between two bulheads.

Juliette, 108 Heck St. adv (Staff Correspondent) RIVER FLAZA More than 200 feet of the Shadow Lake dam collapsed at the height of yesterday's severe wind and rain storm which swept over this section of the county. The resulting roar as thousands of gallons of water tumbled over the dam's steel core and then cascaded over Nutswamp road could be heard for almost a mile even above the howling wind. Heavy rains of the past several days had so swollen the mile long lake that the water had risen four feet to the top of the quarter-mile long embankment which protects Nutswamp road and limits the eastern boundary of the lake. The northern spillway, dry most of the time, carried off some of the surplus water for several days but on Tuesday when the lake continued to rise one of the two emergency gates was opened and yesterday the second was likewise turned on but the constant rain of Tuesday, Tuesday night and yesterday more than offset what was drawn thru the gates.
Sandbags Arrive Too Late According to Lionel W. Lancester. Fair Haven engineer who was driving along Nutswamp road at 3:30, the lake was near the top of the dirt embankment then and started to flow over shortly thereafter. He notified Frederick Frelbott, Port Monmouth, who did extensive work at the Shadow Lake bridge over the causeway last January, and steps were taken to reinforce the dyke with Before they arrived, however, the wind-lashed lake chewed away at the soil and large chunks began falling away. The dike weakened first almost midway between the northern and southern spillways and by 5.30 over 200 feet had been torn out by the rushing water.
Telephone and electric light poles tipped and were kept from falling only by their wires. Several sections of Middletown township were without water today after one of the mains supplying the area was carried away when the (lam collapsed. It was not learned whether the main which broke was an eight-inch or 12-inch line, thru which the Monmouth Consolidated Water company services the northern section of the county. A County Gas company main buried In the renter of the road was also laid bare but, according to that company, it was not damaged. Street lights along Nutswamp road and Hubbard avenue were cut out and Light company.
