Former North lowan Tells Horrors of Flooded Ohio Anxious Waiting for Boat r Described by Mrs. Estel Budd. "Believe me, it's no fun being a flood defugee." How would you like the experience of seeing the water creeping up the second floor of your home and be taken into a boat from the attic and then come back later by boat to snatch a tew things to help you while a flood refugee. That was the experience of Mrs. Estel Budd, Moscow, . Ohio, formerly Miss Martha Grimes, daughter of J. C. Grimes ot Buffalo Center, and a roommate of Miss Miriam Ingraham of Mason · City at the University of Iowa. A graphic description of these experiences, which included that of getting her sick husband out of the flooded house, is given in n letter received by Miss Ingraham from her friend. Mr. Budd suffered a fractured hip some months ago and was just recovering when the flood came. Town Inundated. "The lown of Moscow is completely inundated and all property a total loss as far as we know," said Mrs. Budd. "The river- is now 80 £eet and still rising. That puts 19 feet of water in our house if it's still there and it js one of the highest houses in town. "To begin at the beginning--on Wednesday it began to look as though the water would get in the house so I called Batavia and asked for a Red Cross crew to move furniture. We got a crew of six PWA men with a foreman in charge at 8:30 that night. They worked until 1:30 moving furniture and taking up . linoleums. I worked on till 3 o'clock, moving up some small things. "We still had a foot to go so I locked the doors and went to bed. I had boots so I never dreamed but that it would be possible to get about on the lower floor in the morning. When I awakened in the morning .the water was two feet deep on the floor. I spent an hour trying to telephone but everyone was yelling for help and I couldn't get hold a person. Estel said the doors had to be opened or they'd buckle and anyway no one could get in the house it they'did come : there was nothing to do but ·ait. Threw Boots Away. "By that time the water was al- of Estel and Aunt Harriet's silver and left. By Ihe time I got back to the school house the national guardsmen were there with a motor boat trying to take people out. Everyone was hysterical and refused lo leave. The water was coming on the lower floor o£ the school house--the furnace was out and the electricity was off and the gas gave out. Everyone crowded upstairs, dogs, sick persons-what a mess. I wanted to leave --il was slill raining and sleeting but 1 thought it was safer to take a chance on Estel getting wet than to sleep in an unheated building under existing conditions. It was only about a 30 minute ride in the molor boat to where the buses were waiting to take us up in the hills. "The national guardsmen wanted us to leave and the PWA foreman refused to let Estel and I go. We finally got out at dawn and I got them to take what luggage we had with us on the plea that Eslel was ill and had to have proper changes of clothing. The motorboat took us to John Black' where the buses were waiting. There were six others in the bus with us--the rest all refused to leave. They took us to the Red Cross station at Bethel and found that full of colored people from New Richmond so they decided to take us on to Wiiliamsburg but had orders to leave Eslel at temporary Red Cross hospital at Bethel.

Vocational instruction in each of these three occupational areas is offeree to three major age groups o individuals, the high school slit- dent, t he youth who atlends school'parl of the time and works part of the time, and the adul 1 worker. -· The largest number of students are engaged in the agricultural education branch of the training in Iowa at the present time, according to Mr. Keister, who stated the number taking the work has increased from 8,200 in 1927 to 20,014 in 1936.

They were too swollen lo latch shut so they just cept banging and every time one slammed we would feel the house shake and window panes shatter and dishes falling o f t the mantles. She Was Nervous Too. "Estel was terribly nervous and I wasn't so calm, either. It began to look as though we'd have to get out of the house so I cut Eslel's cast off and got him into some warm clothing. We thought if the boat ever did come we'd be ready to leave. Aboul 2 a. m. someone out at the school house (Ihe Red Cross station) thought of us and sent a boat for us. The water was three feet from the second floor of tiie house when we left and it was pouring rain, "They look us out an atlic window and'took us to the school house. I found a place for Eslel lo lie down and waited for daylight The foreman promised me a boat and some men if I'd wait till daylight to go back to the house but by t h a t time everyone was calling for help lo take people out o£ houses.--there were so many invalids and sick persons in the town and the Red Cross only had two 18 fool boats.

"I think we got out of Moscow with more than anyone else--few of those people had even a change of clothing--and w h a t we got out wasn't much. Believe me, it's no fun being a flood refugee. As far as I know there was no one drowned in Moscow but there win no doubt be deaths from exposure. The Red Cross, PWA and national guard did everything they coulcl and without them there would have been many persons drowned --ourselves included. Have Martial Law..

They were so hysterical that they didn't know what to do--even the men went lo pieces. Lots of them could stand at the window and see their houses floating down the river. It's a terrible thing to witness. "I don't know where we go from here. I can't even collect myself enough to think beyond the present moment. Estel and 1 both have colds. He has a head cold and is sneezing and mine is high in the chest and pretty tight--I guess that was to be expected.
