Sixteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Showboat Damaged By Fire ST. LOUIS (UPI) - An early morning blaze burned through the blackness on the Mississippi Riv. er- at St. Louis and gutted the historic showboat "Goldenrod. 1 •The only apparent victim was a 1%-year-oId dog "that belonged to the river" and was called Fluffie. • Captain-owner J.W. Menke, 81, his brother Charles, and a woman from Olathe, Kan. — Blanche Forbes, who has been with the Menkes for 25 years—all made iI to'safety from their second floor sleeping quarters.. • ,The four-alarm blaze of as yet undetermined origin started aboul 3:30 a.m A witness said both decks of the showboat were .ablaze when he came on the scene. .In the early morning light of dawn with the remains of the "Goldenrod" still smoldering, Menke sat shoeless on a log mooring at the foot of Locust Street by. his craft. •. "I'm still too dazed, I don't faiow what I'm going to do," he said in answer to a question as to whether he planned to rebuild the craft. "I was offered $80,000 for. it {the Goldenrod) two weeks ago and didn't take it," he said. The boat was not insured. .The "Goldenrod" was the final symbol of an era now passed from the American scene. Built •in 1904 it was bought by the Menkes in 1922, who plied the towns along the banks' of the Mississippi, the Ohio and other livers from as far north as Pittsburgh to the southern reaches of !New Orleans. . The "Goldenrod" was the largest of all the showboats in existence. It seated 1,400 patrons when constructed. Three Vehicles Damaged in Crash Three motor vehicles were damaged slightly at 3J48 p.m. Thursday in a collision on the South Cicott Street bridge. According to police records, a 1954 sedan driven by Virgil Poor, 36,' ,of 500 Culbertson St., going north, had stopped on the bridge waiting for traffic to clear at the school crossing. A 3953 sedan, driven by Elmer Grabbe, 41, of Russiaville. had stopped behind the Poor car for the same reason, A 1952 truck, driven by Robert Viney, 21, of Monticello, and owned by the Dye Lumber Co. struck the Grabbe car, pushing it into the Poor automobile. The rear of the Poor car, the front and rear of the Grabbe automobile, -and the front of the truck were damaged. There were no injuries nor arrests. Read the Want Ads!

Although the death loll exceeded the old record of 109 set six years ago for a 30-hour period, it fell below , the. figure of 120 which the National Safety Council feared might be reached. And since more Americans took to the- highways Tuesday night and Wednesday than in the same period in 1956, this holiday's fatality rale was only 5.9 deaths per 100 million .miles traveled, .as compared to 7.5 six years ago. A final United' Press' International count showed that 112 persons died in traffic'accidents, 38 in drownings, 13 in plane crashes and 29 in miscellaneous accidents for an over - all violent death count of 191, Revival Services Revival services will be conducted Saturday evening and all day Sunday at the Mt.
