MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2T, 1»M XLZl'HEVTLLE. (ABK.) COTJUTBR NEW! The Nation Today: Diustor on Hi* Move Disasters Take Over the Nation's Headlines /rom Political Activities Bj MAX HALL (For Jamej Marlow) WASHINGTON, Nov. 27. Congress starts a short session today but the major domestic news of the last few days nas not been political. Rather/ the big black tBrillnes have had to do with dls- First. the nation was appaled by the rear-end collision on the Long Island Railroad, one of the most sickening train wrecks In American history. . Then, while the investigations of this account were getting' underway, the eastern third of the country was ravaged by one of the worst cold-weather storms on record. The death toll of this storm has reached at least 200 and the property damage was steadily growing. It was an unusual storm! not only tn violence but in Its character. Terrific wind banged the northern seaboard but It was not the "northeaster" that often strikes In that area, for it blew out of'the east and southeast. The air was warm, and there was no snow. Snow Falls Inland At the same time, astonishing snowfalls occurred inland, in the region . of western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. There, the air was icy cold. Stiff winds rushed out of the north, northwest, and west. The storm, in this region took on the character of a blizzard, though the Weather Bureau says it wasn't n "typical blizzard," which fillF f 'r with snow blown from the ground. How Mis i:, ,ound like two different storms, but the Weather Bureau says it was all the same storm caused primarily by a big area of atmospheric pressure which feed up from the Carolinas and svTcked air inward from various directions. The storms that kill the most people In this country are not cold- weather Storms at all. They are hurricanes and tornadoes. September is the height of the hurricane season, and May is the height of the tornado season. The nation's worst death-dealing hurricane was the one' tha struck Galveston, Tex., in • 1900 driving a huge wave out of the gulf About 6,000 people died. The worst tornado was the "tri- state" tornado of 1925. It slashed a path through Missouri, southern Illinois, and Indiana and 'killed 689. ' = The worst flood, In' terms of deaths, killed an estimated 2,200 people at Johnston, Pa., in 1889 though other floods have cause; more widespread damage to pro- 'perty. Forest fires have been known to kill more than 1,000 people, ant the San Francisco earthquake and lire oJ 1906 killed hundreds. Bu' the greatest fire toll In'a singli Wilding occurred In the ' Iroquols leater. at Chicago, In 1903. when ! people were, either burned or trampled to death. 1943 A Dluster Year The year 1947 was a year of dis STORM CENTER^— A Senate ^jrfit is brewing over confirmation of President Truman's appointment of Seth W.

Clements of Kentucky—arranged to take the oath of office today. Both are Democrats. They are the first to begin service of a crop of u new Senators elected Nov. 7. Three other new faces will appear in the Senate shortly: Prank Carlson, 57, Republican who resigned as governor of Kansas after his election, will take the oath tomorrow or Wednesday. Richard M. Nixon, 37, California Republican moving over from the House, probably will take his seat Dec. 5. John O. pastore, 43, Democratic governor of Rhode Island, expects to resign nnd come here after Dec. 5. The other freshman Senators are scheduled to take their places in the new session starting Jan. 3. The date on which a senator starts his service is important because of seniority, or length of service, is a controlling factor on choice committee assignments. Committee chairmanships are normally given on a basis of seniority. asters In the u. S. In March, a coal mine explosion at Centralla, III., killed 111 miners, n April, a ship explosion at Texas 3ity, Tex., look a toll of 512. Then here were four major plane crashes, In which « were killed at La- uardia Field, New York; 63 near Bainbrldge, Md.; 50 at Lookout Rock, W. Va.; and 52 near Bryce Canyon, Utah. Those aviation disasters were exceeded last .June by the death of 58 persons In a plane which fell Into Lake Michigan. The largest death list in a u. S. train wreck was 101 at Nashville, Tenn., In 1918. Motor vehicle accidents are not usually classed as "disasters" because the deaths come In'ones and .wos, but the victims are just is dead—and they mount to a fearful annual total. The record year was 1941, when 39.969 were killed. The National Safety Council says this year's total may be about 35,000, a post-war record.

World's bwt-kiMwn horn* remedy to r*lnv* miMrnt «f coldal Carl Schaffrin, 217 Perry St., St. Charles, Mo., says there are some folks In this old world who feel good and there are other folks who feel bad. The folks who feel good he wants to. congratulate, but lor the. folks who feel mighty bad he says he wants .them to read what he has to say and then take a word of advice—take HADACOL if you suffer from a deficiency of Vitamins Bl, B2, Nlacin and Iron. Here Is what Mr. Schaffrin hns to say about HADACOL since II overcame the effects of such deficiencies in his system: "I have been a shoe cutter for over 32 years— I jiow work for the Boyd Welsh Shoe Co. in St. Louis. For quite some time now I haven't had any appetite at all—seemed like I didn't have enough energy to do my work, I was tired all the time—and really didn't enjoy doing anything. It affected my work too. Then I heard how other folks who took HADA- COL had increased their appetite and seemed to have a limitless amount of energy. I tried HADA- COL and It Is amazing what r a change It has made. Now I feel like eating everything on the table, my disposition Is 100% better and my worlc—In fact, everything I do I now enjoy. For an entirely new outlook on life I recommend HADA- COD." Whj HADACOL Glr« Such Fine Results HADACOL does not bring symp- lomallc relief. HADACOL now makes It possible to actually relieve the cause of nagging pains, lack of energy, lack of appetite, and & general run-down weakened condition when these are due to such deficiencies of Vitamins Bl, B2, Nlacin and Iron In your system. HADACOL not only supplies deficient systems with extr» quantities of Vitamins Bl, B2, Iron, »nd Nia- cln but also helpful amounts of important Calcium and Phosphorus- elements so vital to help maintain good health and physical fitness.
