Norway, Ajiril 7. (UP)—A tremendous muss of mountain rock which crashed tniu the narrow, deep Norddalsfjord today caused two waves that <wr- whelmed Die fishing villages ol Tafjord anil I-jo:rra and killed perhaps 40 to 50 peisoas. T.l.e peasant fishermen and their families, who make up the villa? es, were as!.e;i when the rock crashed into (he almost boltomlesj fjord nt 3 a.m. They thought the judgment day had cotne when the first great wave roared through the villages and struck their little homes. It immersed the power plant and plunged the valley into darkness. Cri.sof drowning per..ons, groans of victims buried in debris ot homes, continued until there came a second uave which swallowed up many who were calling from windows for help. The. pastor of the liny church at Taf^ord—the larger of the villages, with a population of 200—said to a United Press correspondent: "Motor boats and rowboats were tossed half a mile up the valley by the waves. The crash of the rock had been expected, as it was overhanging, but nothing could be dune to avert it." Four B- jrtntined Full »f Girl* . A x-\f' .OELES, April 7. (DPI -%/' j& hours of quarantine w.
