Approximately 700 or 800 persons had been placed in Frisco cars, preparatory to the movement to Memphis, at one o'clock this aflernoon. Frisco officials said It would probably be three or (our o'clock before the train would get underway. Tlie refugees were being loaded in a long line of freight cars on a siding along Ihe main Irnck of il:e Frisco from Ash' street'south. 'National guardsmen were handling Ihe removal of refugees lo the train. Mayor Cecil Shane, who went to Memphis yesterday to complete arrangements for handling Blythc- ville refugees there, said the Blytheville group would be transported from the central railroad station - to the Memphis auditorium, which | has bsen turned into a receiving ' station, and would be sent later to camps established in Memphis. Buffalo Island Exodus Delayed Some 400 refugees at Leachville were removed yesterday to Paragould in buses and automobiles but the exodus was halted today on order of Red Cross officials, Walter Cox, Red Cross chairman at Leachville, said.

Ark.. Jan. 28 — The major tragedy of the Hoods ill Ihe Chickasawba district of Mississippi county occurred Tuesday night, five persons being drowned when a boat overturned on Buffalo ditch near here. Walter Cox, head of the Red . Cross organization here, said five persons were drowned when a res- !

As practically nil cotton had been ginned by that date It Is apparent that the 1030 crop fell short of 200,000 running bales. The total in 500-pound bales, however,, presumably will run over 200,000. The county ginned 115,111 bales of 1935 crop cotton prior to January 10, 193G.

Miss Henrietta Wilkins, Red •Cross executive, said-this afternoon that the removal of refugees from Manila and Leachville to Para- BCiild had been halted temporarily in order to allow more time for completion of arrangements to care for them at the Paragould concentration center. More Refugees Coming In fn tlie meantime the flow of refugees Into Blytheville from the Big Lake and Little River areas continued. Evacuation , of sections where waler has already made removal by any method 'other than .boat impracticable is proceeding from two principal points in the northern district of the county at this time, one at the Roseland ditch Highway 18 crossing and another at Ihe state line ditch, above Calumet Oliver Coppedge. in charae of the j state line receiving station, has boats plying out into Ihe low sections of the Ei? Lake swamp lands west of Gosnell where water from the state line ditch break is now reported as deep as eight feet in some places. At Roseland ditch a swift current is pouring under and slightly over the west end of the bridge, the receiving station being located •at the cast end. Probably a half mile east of the ditch, where a railroad trestle released flood water, held" back at other points by the Frisco railroad embankment, the full force of the current Us easily noticeable as swirls across the highway.

Meyer, Drainage District 17 engineer, but a major crevasse in the east levee of the lake.Would be a much .more serious proposition and it might bs 'mnossibie" to close it in time for this year's crop. Slagc IE Stationary Although much of the slate line levee is scheduled for ultimate abandonment with the putting int3 effect of the army engineers program for enlarging the Big Like- Little River Headway, the cost of repairing it would be amply, justified by the value of even just one year's crop, Mr. Meyer said. The drainage district owns draglure equipment which it will mil'oil the lob'there a s soon as conditions permit, he said. The stage at the lake remauud . eluttert In the group were three members of one family, an a»es1 man and a 17-year-old boy. Tolav only two of the bodies had been recovered. The names of the victims could, not be learned today. The accident occurred about 10 o'clock at night. Warm weather today accelerated i the work of boatmen operating as | far south as 12 miles below Lench- ville -from the evacuation base here. Two large government boats were plying Buffalo ditch south bringing out 25 to 30 persons at a time. Smaller boat spuslied \helr way into isolated sections where the wa- ler ranges from five feet to IB inches In deplh. : Marooned residentsSre brought out of the lowlands in the smaller .boats and .transferred -to the larger-boats at the'.;ditches and carried upstream to 1 the steel bridge on the Manna.-Monctte cut-oil road then transferred again into smaller boats above the bridge and brought to solely. One of the boat crews working below Leachville removed a mai and woman and 'their little daughter from the attic of a house wiiere they had been marooned with the flood waters creeping steadily higher. The boatmen smashed their way Into tlie upper part of the building and made a hoie through which they removed the trio. at an approximate stand today, just under 251.4. but thawing of the ice crust which has covered the levee complicated the job of holding it. As the levee softened water started flowing over it in two places last night and at another point it started coming thr^igh in considerable volume.
