LOUISVILLE, Ky., ((P)-- On (he main street ot Louisville, in the hcnrt of the blue grass' beautiful derby town, people were f i s h i n g -from second story windows for food with 20 foot poles, baskets tied to the ends ot them. 3t was the weirdest sight I've ever seen, this heart oC Louisville under 15 feet of water, bright sunlight, streaming warmly down on a fantastic world ot eddying muddy water with houses, factories, h o t e l s , warehouses, growing up out of this strange surface. There were stores filled wiih food, and yet 20 feet away people were starving. There was nothing but a vast world of water, and still people were choking with thirst. You had to see it to believe it. Start From Platform. We started out from a pontoon platform at Eighteenth street and Broadway in the good ship, "Port Huron," a coast guard launch from the Great Lakes, towing a his lifeboat manned by stevedores from New York, lo gel a shipmenl of bread and milk for the hungry sufferers of flood lorn Louisville. Straight down Broadway we chugged, headed across the devastated west end section of (he city where the raging Ohio is attempting to cut a new bed for itself, now that it has all but torn Louisville in two, where suffering has been greatest, death tolls highest in a country where both now are commonplace. You have to duck the trolley car wire down the middle of the street as the boat passes under it. The wire, dead as the lighting system, the water p u m p i n g works the gas heating supply, is dangerous only that it might cut youi head o f f . It is noxv only f o u r ot five feet above the water. Siffht SubmerEcd Trucks. There are lookouts sighting submerged trucks ahead. It was along this crazy waterway only a few hours before that a powerboat ripped out its bottom scraping over n big truck that had been caught in (he rising waters. Underneath the surface, far loo f a t down to see, are thousands ol passenger cars, 'resting s t i l l jus where they stood when the mighty Ohio swept miles above its normal banks. You pass a cigaret factory at 30th street, then one after the other some of the biggest whisky distilleries in the south. They stand deserted in the water, like great misshapen houseboats. Then come a string of two story frame houses, once a drab white, now daubed with the mud of the opulent river. Windows pop up, heads bob out, both men and women. "Hey, where you bound, sailors?" Everyone yells back. More windows- pop up. People run out on t h e i r second story porches, just above the waterlinc, As! for Ciearels. "Got anything to eat? Any cigarets? When are they coming 'or us? Hey sailors, take us ·Uong!" But we're supply boats, on a mission for milk that thousands o£ babies and children need desperately in the refugee camps on ihe highlands back from the Hood; bread for the battered, hungry grownups who are rationed to the bone. A few more blocks ahead is our goal, a railroad siding at the end o£ the deep water at 30th and Garland. There are five boxcars, standing up fo their axles in the muddy flood, but water hasn't touched the precious cargo packed in right up to the roofs. The sailors tell me the food has just come in from Chicago. But just a hundred feet or so short of the siding, is the strangest sight of all. On both sides of '.he street are grocery stores, drug stores, fruit stores, their windows smashed in by the weight of. the waters. Edibles in Windows. In the windows of the food stores are piled edibles of all kinds. Much of the stuff has floated away. And from the second story porches of houses clustered around, men gaze hungrily into the water, holding long poles with baskets tied to t h e ends, spearing as you would net for fish anything with an eatable look that drifts by. They h a u l in t h e i r "lines," vvafch us, and yell like the others. Their eyes never leave us as the longshoremen p u l l up to the boxcars, and in scarcely any t i m e at all, load the supply boat until it sinks to the gunwales. We start back. It's againsl regulations, but how are you going In get by those d r a w n , bewhisk- crcd sufferers? We toss t h e m loaves ot bread, promise we'll be sending relief right back. Discharged Helper Sought for Beating Albert Lea Farmer ALBKUT LEA, Minn., M) Sheriff Helmer C. Mylire said he was seeking Leonard Gade, a discharged f a r m helper, for an attack on Lawrence Cipra, prominent f a r m e r and two other workers on the farm. He said Cipva was nr;ir death from a beating w i t h an iron bar; Reuben Mollcr, his hired man, was s u f f e r i n g from a possible fractured skull and Mrs. Sarah Johnson, the cook, was being treated for frozen legs and other injuries. She ran a mile to a neighbor's house for aid. Myhre said said Gade was discharged several dnys ago at Mrs. Johnson's request, because of his unwelcome attentions to her. He returned to the farm Wednesday night, beat her when sho refused to leave with him, and attacked the two men.
