The dam of Cardenas, 160 miles Tth of here, crumbled under the ure of heavy rains which fol- a killer hurricane. The hurricane itself had left more than 150 dead In Jamaica, slammed Into the Quit of Mexico and left one person dead in the oil port city of Tani- plco before spending itself against the Mexican mountains. The government railways said 27 bodies of persons living in the town —a few hundred feet below the dam —had been recovered. About 23 others were missing, searchers were still hunting in the corn fields below the dam. The 60-foot dam, holding some 375.000,000 gallons of water for the railway shops at Cardenas, gave way about noon yesterday after more than seven inches of rain had fallen in 24 hours. The dam broke without warning and cut a cluster of 75. railway workers' homes to the foundations. A relief train to Cardenas was held up by a landslide which covered nearly a mile of the tracks. Word from the train was that it would be many hours before it could get through. Meanwhile, Tampico began digging itself out of the mud and debris left by the hurricane. p Troops patrolled the streets to prevent looting and the residents were kept in their candle-lit homes by a 9 p.m. curfew. Damage was expected to run I'jttt above $1,000,000 and Associated *Wss Correspondent Robert P. Allen said about 1,000 lightly built houses were blown down.
