As thousands of workers raced against time lo shore up shattered sea defenses In Britain and The Netherlands, some 2.000 vessels and more than 12S plniics rushed the evacuation of thousands numbed by co!d and suffering from three days of exposure in isolated villages throughout stricken Southwest Holland. H*t Vrije Volk said that the death toll on the .Zeeland Island of Schouwen-Duiveland alone may be nearly 1,000. It quoted the burgomaster of Zierikzee as saying between-300 and 400 persons drowned In the (own of Nieuwerkerk, or, that island.

After Mr. and Mrs. Drabik were married in 1941 they announced they wanted 10 children — all girls. Mathematicians figured the odds against such a thing happening 'were 512 to 1.

And now they have their seventh girl, beating the odds on seven in a row of 64 to 1.

In Britain more than 400 square miles were flooded. In • Brussels, newspaper estimates placed Belgian losses in tlie neighborhood of 30 million dollars. The final death toll in lhe disaster may exceed 2,000. The latest count from official and the best available unofficial sources was: Holland, 1,053 England, TT7. Lost in ships at sea, 169.
