i i 0 RAINS, WINDS . HIT AREA BUT STORM PASSES Rains driven by winds of storm force estimated not to have exceeded 40 to 45 miles per hour yesterday Inundated an apprehensive Penln! ula as threats of a hurricane or full gale apparently passed without caus- Ing appreciable damage. Following the strong storm Sept. 14, wary residents closely watched the progress of the tropical hurricane as it swept across Cuba, through Florida and up the coast and were ready to weather a blow but the storm diminished in intensity as it approached and apparently passed by at a harmless pace. Weather reports, followed eagerly, wera that the storm would strike with some force about 10 or 10:30 last night but up to a lat hour the storm failed to materialize. Conflicting reports left the populace in a quandary, some people believing the storm passed before noon, others still waiting and ready for a gale as forecast by the weather bureau. Rain started falling lightly about S a. m. and Increased as the winds grew fresh. By 9 a. m., the winds were strong and carried sheets of rain. Shortly after noon, skies began to clear but intermittently rain fell . between the sunshine. Only a few persons reported tree limbs, some large, torn from trunks and no reports of damage to homes, other than by water, were heard. Streets and roads were inundated at places but the water ran clear shortly afte rthe downpour stopped. Only fairly high tides were reported and these caused no damage. At noon, during flood tide, the water edged over seawalls in the Hampton area and some water stood in Bridge St., a low place that easily fills with a strong northeast wind. Transportation service was not halted and no power failures were reported in contrast to Sept. 14 when th storm, while not as severe as predicted, caused considerable damage. Telephone communication apparently was not hit yesterday. The So-Called (Continued From Page Four) has a higher percentage of rural Inhabitants than has Utah. And the other two states carried by Willkie,' Michigan and Indiana, are calssified as urban. This classification ; is based on the 1940 census, and wide shifts of population have occurred since that was taken. These shifts make predictions based on a rural-urban alignment especially haz-' ardous in 1944. For instance, many farm workers from pro-Willkie states in 1940 have removed to California, but most reports frcii California still give Roosevelt the edge there. Many Southerners have migrated to Michigan, but that migration had occurred also prior to the 1940 election, which saw Michigan In the Republican ccjmn. In New York state it is commonly said that the result depends on how large an up-state majority the Republicans bring down to the Bronx (the northernmost of the five coutnies which make up New York city). In 1940 Willkie carried the state outside of New York city by 494,019, but Roosevelt carried New York city by 718,459. Roosevelt carried also four upstate coutnies Albany, Clinton (bordering on Canada), Erie (Buffalo), Monroe (Rochester). In Illinois it is commonly said that the result depends on how large a down-state majority the Republicans bring up to Cook county, which Includes Chicago. In 1940 Roosevelt carried Cook county by 222,687. Willkie car- M4 11 t . I ' ; f , I 1 f j , ' , f - 4 I I ' fin " Is ' ' it FAMILY WELL-REPRESENTED IN SERVICE Mrs. W. E.

Mishaps Keep Pace With Highway Use Richmond, Oct. 20. fP) The increase in highway traffic during the first six months of this year over the gasoline-rationed days of 1943 ugnt corresponding increase in June 30. Two hundred and fifty-two of the number were fatalities, of which only 50 were women. Violation of traffic laws other than speeding caused the most acci-: dents, the report said. j The summary indicated women may be safer drivers than men, for only 997 women were involved in accidents compared with 8,133 men. Most of the drivers had more than eleven years driving experience.; More than 65 per cent of the colliding automobiles were either standing still or proceeding at less than, 25 miles per hour. Saturday is the worst day of the week for accidents, the report said, and dry road surfaces were noted in nearly four times as many accidents as wet roads.
