TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 29 H 1937 nile court building. Ten expectan .mothers waited for their "floo babies" in another makeshift hos · pilal. . . . . . Meanwhile, 1 assured that th worst was past, stricken commun ities in middlewestern · state pushed plans for rehabilitation aided by state and federal govern ments, and the care of the home less. These victims of the disasle numbered 1,035,000, latest esti mates said, with 333 dead. Prop erty loss estimates were S400, 000,000. As the crest of the nation's mos devastating flood passed slowb down the Ohio a pick and shove · army of 100,000 men-fortified fertile, cotton, growing valley the south against the impact o flood waters which will pour dowr the Mississippi next week. 3 Danger.Points. Danger points along the 1,00 mile front between Cairo, 111 where the Ohio spills into the Mis sissippi, and the Gulf of Mexic were at New Madrid, Mo., Hick man, Ky., and Mellwood, Ark., 3 miles below Helena. Like a fort jn militarv siege 4,000 men battled behind a 60 foo seawall to save Cairo, southern Illinois shipping center, from th oncoming flood crest. Most of th city's 13,000 population had fled I safety! Several" days ago engineer "pulled the stopper" in the grea 131,000 acre floodway below Canto ease the pressure against th seawall. Thursday night thej dynamited another hole to reltcv the pressure on a setback levee near New Madrid, Mo. Thousands o£ refugees who livei in the inundated area campec along the Missouri border hoping Cairo and southeast Missouri' "boot heel" would be saved frorr enguUment. 100,000 Evacuated. As 500 men labored to strengthen the levee near Mellwood, Ark. evacuation of 100,000 threatenec acres of farmlands, was compleled Another crew was at work repairing the levee at Hickman. The big test of the government's billion dollar flood control system along the Mississippi will not come until next week. While the engineers were prepared for any eventuality, Maj. Gen. Malin Craig, U. S. army chief of staff said qualifiedly he expected Mississippi dikes would hold. He based his belief on the expectation the levees will hold at Cairo and no abnormal floods develop in tributary rivers. While some predictions were made that the flood crest on the Mississippi would be considerably under first expectations, . Lieut. Col. Eugene Reybold, directing operations at Memphis, went ahead with plans to protect the levees against a flood of water the equivalent of 62 feet on the Cairo gauge. Only Possible Threat. Above Cairo .the only possible threat'- to gradual, return to : normalcy,appeared to be the weather. R a i n - a n d snow were forecast but it was not expected lo change the situation appreciably, and Walter Mo.xom, the weather bureau's flood forecasting expert, said the worst of the flood in the Ohio valley had passed. A Herculean task was involved in restoring the towns- along the Ohio waterfront from Pittsburgh to Cairo and government agencies . developed a broad rehabili- tation.program with provision for placing about 200,000 persons on relief rolls. The. handmaidens of disaster-hunger and disease--caused concern in many cities. Supplies of food and medicine were rushed into the area and drastic measures weije . considered to stop .the spread of disease. Soldiers and police guarded against looting. Stand on Estimate. Louisville officialdom stood on the estimate 'of 200 dead made four days ago' as the Kentucky . metropolis struggled with . wartime fervor to care for thousands of the. 230,000 persons driven from their homes. Across the river, Jefferspnville Ind., its 12,000 inhabitants reducec to 300, sent word it was "down bu not out." The 300 survived the flood in a barricaded factory on the river front. An alarming.reduction in Cin' cinnati's water supply caused the daily water .ration to . b e ' c u t in · half as the city's disaster counci made plans lo have 10,000 WPA workers start a cleanup, perhaps by Monday. · The national guard remained on duty in the flood stricken town: of southern Indiana to preven 'Sit Downers'No Longer Considered as Employe 'General Motors in Petition for Eviction of Men looting and aid in rehabilitatioi which some said might requin years. Proposes Conference. After surveying' the damagi wrought by the flood, Gov. Mar.- lin L. Davey of Ohio proposed ·· conference between governors o the "flood states" and the federa government to discuss a long range flood control program. He said the slate could not possibly raise enough funds to mee the needs for rehabilitation. · At Huntinglon, W. Va., the police force was augmented by American Legion volunteers to aid law enforcement after one man was killed by (hieves seeking valuables in the flooded area Skiffs and launches were used by patrolmen. FIRE IN SHIP'S HOLD PUT OUT Captain Wires of Success in Fight-After Earlier Sending, SOS. NEW YORK, W--The captain o£ the coastwise vessel Shawnee wirelessed late Friday morning he had succeeded in extinguishinj a fire in the No: 2 hold after a fight of several hours during which he dispatched a peremptory SOS distress call. Laden with 190 passengers and a cargo, of fruits, vegetables and cotton, the Shawnee, of 6,209 tons with a crew of 174, was bounc Irom Jacksonville and Miami loi New York when her skipper wire- lessed a ' c a l l Irom a position off Cape Henry, Virginia, for assistance at 6 a. in. (GST). The City of Birmingham and the coast guard responded. An hour and 20 minutes later the Shawnee advised all ships in the vicinity the fire was undei control. Then, at 8:50 a. m. (CST) the captain wirelessed his New York office: "Fire in cotton now out. Proceeding to New York." The Shawnee is a passenger carrying vessel of the Clyde-Mal- 'ory lines operating usually be- ,ween New York and Miami. She is registered at 6,209 tons and was built in 1927. She is propelled with four steam turbines itted 1o twin screws. ' The Shawnee sailed Jan. 26 from /liami, calling in at Jacksonville. She was due in New York at 10 '. m. Friday night. CALLSTfilALOF MOONEY "FAIR" California Supreme Court Special Referee Gives His Ruling. SAN FRANCISCO, (£)--A. "K. Shaw, special referee o£ Cali- ornia's supreme court, held Thursday that Thomas J. Mooney vas fairly convicted of the 1916 "^reparedness day bombing here. In his special findings of fact filed vith the supreme court Thursday, Shaw ruled with the attorney general's office t h a t Mooney was not entitled to release on habeas corpus from prison. Mooney has served 20'years of a life term for the bombing, in which 10 persons .vere killed and 50 injured. "It is established by the preponderance of evidence," Shaw found, "that the petitioner had a fair and impartial trial, and thai he was not denied any right or privilege guaranteed or granted him by the constitution of the United States or of the slate of California, or by any statute of the United Stales "or the state of California. * » * "II is .established by the ponderance that . petitioner not a victim of a frameup nor was he convicted as the result of any improper act of any kind on the part of Ihe district attorney, or any of his assistants, or on the Part of any person representing the state of California." pre- was From Plants. AUTOrLABOR AT A GLANCE By The Associated Press. General Motors petitions for court order evicting "sit down" strikers from two Flint (Mich.) plants and reveals it no longer considers them employes. · United Automobile Workers of America directed lo appear for hearing on the petition Monday. Union indicates discharge o£ s t r i k e r s i n discrimination against its members and may raise new issue to be negotiated. Three federal agencies assign o p e r a t i v e s t o investigate phases of strike. Secretary of Labor · Perkins and Gov. Frank Murphy of Michigan remain "hopeful" of break in deadlock "soon." Flint Alliance says it will continue to insist upon state protecting returning workers. NO LONGER CONSIDERED EMPLOYES OF COMPANY DETROIT, (/P}_A petition seeking a court order lor eviction o "sit down" strikers from two Fisher body plants at Flint, Mich., revealed Friday that General Motors corporation no longer considers the men to be employes. Roy Brov.-nell, Flint attorney for General Motors, filed the petition with Circuit Judge Paul V. Gadola of Genesee county (Flint). It requested an injunction prohibiting the strikers from continuing to occupy the plants, they have held since Dec. 30. The court directed the United Automobile Workers of America, which called the.strikes that have- crippled operations of General Motors, to show cause why an injunction should not be granted at a hearing Monday at 1 p. m. (CST). The bill of complaint with the injunction petition'deferred to the "sit down" strikers as "former em- ployes" and said "they are no longer employes of the p l a i n t i f f and have no right to remain on the premises." Evacuation of the strikers has been demanded by General Motors before it would meet with the union to settle the widespread strikes. However, should this be accomplished through the asked- for court order, negotiators might be confronted by a new issue. Differences between Gov. Frank Murphy of Michigan and the Flint Alliance continued. The governor declined Thursday to answer a request ol L a'n . Dalliance delegation that he guarantee "full protection" to men returning io ,vork in the reopened General Motors plants and blamed the al- iance "in part" for the failure of he "Lansing truce" between General Motors and the union.

WASHINGTON, (if)--A. decision on placing all postmasters under civil service rested Friday with the senate after the house in a boisterous overtime session approved the administration proposal. The bill would empower the postmaster general to fill the positions permanently, without senate ratification, either by reapppinting Incumbents who passed non-competitive examinations or by promoting postal employes. About 14,000 first, second and third class postmasters would go under the merit system, which already covers 23,000 fourth class postmasters in'small communities. Republicans contended the proposal would keep thousands ol democratic postmasters in office for life. Some democrats called foi a return to the "spoils system." In the confusion--the lights w e n t o u t once---Representative Collins (D.-Miss.) put through amendments to restore presidential appointments for four-year terms, with congressmen advising on the selections. Finally democratic leaders marshaled their forces and killed the Collins amendments, 216 to 164. Republicans lost, 270 to 109, an attempt .to substitute their own bill. At 7 p. m., two hours before the members were due at a white house reception, the bill was passed without a .record vote. WHAT CONGRESS.

The Howard county sheriff said his deputy, Percy Haven, and County Attorney George Mikcsh were Investigaling incidenls con- necled with the ease in Hancock county and planned to make the auto trip from there to Osceola at about the same time of night, and traversing the same road as that taken by Landa, 45 year old representative of an Owatonna nursery firm, or, if he had been slain, b.y his murderer. Landa was last seen at Hayfield at 8:30 p. m. Jan. 19 and his car ivas found at Osceola at 1 a. m. Jan. 20. There were h u m a n bloodstains in the rear seat, lending credence to the murder theory.

CHICAGO, ()--Motor vehicle accident deaths reached an all lime record total of 38,500 in 1936, the nalional safety council said Friday, exceeding the nation's previous mark of 37 000 set in 1935. Tornadoes, floods, excessive heat and increased employment helped push the 193G total of accident deaths from nil causes to 111,000, wiping out the 1934 records of 101,139. The council added t h a t accidents permanently disabled about 400,000 persons and lemporarily disabled 10,300,000 others. For the first time in eight years fatalities resulting from accidents within homes--39,000, or an advance of 7,500 from the 1S35 figure--exceeded the number of deaths on the highways of the United States. Increase of 1,500. "Neither I nor any other safety worker will attempt to explain away a 1,500 increase in traffic deaths during 1936," said W. H. Cameron, managing director of the council. "Growing death totals emphasize more than ever that the job of the traffic courts, the traffic engineers an dthe traffic educators has only begun. "193G will go down , in safety history as a year of marked advancement in all kinds of safety activity, blit also as a period in which more travel, more employment and _ high temperatures placed tremendous obstacles in the path of safely work, x x x Mile for mile, the American motorists operated, more safely t h a n in 1935.' : IMore Cars Registered. Council figures showed that while traffic deaths increased 4 per cent in number, automobile registration jumped 8 per cent over the 1935 total to 28,270,000, "a greater number than ever before traveled American streets and highways," and that these vehicles traveled 225,000,000,000 -miles, or 22,000,000,000 more miles t h a n iti any other recorded year. ' The council's survey Indicated t h a t 1,000 of the 1,500 increase in accident deaths as compared with 1935 came in November and December, when "open roads and fair weather permitted heavy t r a f - fic iti the north half of the country, where winter usually cuts the volume of highway travel." 18 States Reduce. The council found that I B states and the District of Columbia reduced traffic deaths an average of 7 per cent although experiencing a 10 per cent increase in gasoline consumption. The other 30 states, with gasoline consumption up 12 per cent, reported a nine per cent increase in deaths. Of states in the impro'/ed group, the council found, all but two carried on "either a complete program of safety engineering, legislation, law enforcement, education and safety organization, or have done excelelnt work in one or two of these lines." Of the others, the council's report said, "more than half have r.ot performed notable work in any important branch of t r a f f i c safety effort, although several have recently slartcd such aclivi- lies. These should show results in 1937."

RADIO SETS PRECEDENTS TO AID FLOOD EMERGENCY The unprecedented midwest flood disaster also set new precedents in radio. 24-hour national emergency, w i t h CBS. NBC, MBS and other co-opernting stations joining in. (The only other p u b l i c event ever lo be on the air overnight was the historic democratic national convention of 1932.) In the first five days of the crisis it rolled up n total of at least 24 special broadcasts from 31 major flood points, on the Columbia Broadcasting system alone -- the most ever accorded such an event in this country. For the first time, a governor of a state spoke over an emergency telephone line in an appeal for aid from the nationwide audience, delivered over CBS through station 1VHAS, Louisville, Ky.

It also brought together for the first lime direct and regular coordination on n large scale, of commercial and amateur broadcasters in the aid of a far-Clung emergency. Specific and direct appeals for aid were organized by both, establishing a swift multi-way communication between ' relief headquarters, rescue squads and the general public. As an example, in addition to the tireless operations of the key flood-area stations WHAS in Louisville and WKRC in Cincinnati, the engineering staff of WBB'AI, Chicago CBS headquarters, set up an ox'crnight operation to clear Coast Guard, Red Cross and other official flood messages. Many of these messages not only were cleared through WBBM, but its engineers were .designated to keep wave-length 'channels in Ihe flood sections cleared of unnecessary interference. In short, all branches of radio demonstrated what can be done to meet a national emergency by unofficial but nonetheless effective co-ordination of their facilities. * A liing Is to be crowned in St. Paul, Minn., Saturday. He is Boreas, king of winter, and his coronation marks the opening of the St. Paul Ice carnival, to be described over WCCO between 3:00 and 3:30 n. m. Gov. Elmer A.
