TWENTY PAGES.- GRAND JURY'S FREE DINNER STIRS -RANKIN a ~ Commissioner 1 n s i s t s County Home Shouldn't Foot Bill. House Crushed by Landslide During (Los Angeles Storm BUCK PASSING GAME, HE SAYS' Special to The Courier. UNIONTOWN, Mar. 4.--County Commissioner John W. Rankin is vehemently opposed to free dinners for members of the March grand jury at the expense o£ the Fayctte County Home. Steward Alex J. Mead 'prepared a buffet lunch for 30 on 45 minutes notice yesterday morning. "They have been passing the buck to the County Home every term of court and the home has had to foot the bill of expense in feeding the grand jutprs and court attaches," Ranhin said, "with no question being raised. But the County Home shouldn't be responsible for feeding people who are not dependents. By right this item should be added to court expense if the right thing is done and this buck passing stops. "It's a matter of -keeping the records straight' and I mean straight," he continued. Applications May Be Filed for 1938 Crop, Feed Loans Applications for emergency crop and feed loans for 1938 are now being received at 319 Second National Bank, Uniontov/n, by Miss Donna Van Gilder, for P. E. Day, field supervisor of the Emergency Crop and Feed Loan Section ol the Farm Credit Administration. The loans will be made, as in the past, only to farmers who cannot obtain credit from any other source. The money loaned will be limited to the farmer's immediate and actual cash needs for growing his 1838 crops or for the purchase of feed for livestock, and the amount which may be loaned ;to any one farmer in 1938 may not exceed $400. Farmers who can obtain the funds they need from an individual, production crecT* association, bank, or other concern are not eligible for crop and feed loans from the Emergency Crop and Feed Loan Section of the Farm Credit Administration. The loans will not be made to standard rehabilitation clients whose current needs are provided for by the Farm Security Administration, formerly known as the Resettlement Administration. As in the past, fanners who obtain emergency crop" and feed loans will give as security a first lien on the crop financed, or a first lien on the livestock to be fed if the money borrowed 5s to be used to produce or purchase feed for livestock. Where loans are made to tenants; the landlords, or others having an interest in the crops financed or the livestock to be fed, are required to waive their claims in favor of a lien to the governor of the Farm Credit Administration until the loan is repaid. · · · Checks in payment of approved loans will be mailed from the Regional Emergency Crop and Feed Loan Office at Baltimore, Md.

California Flood Toll Mounts Hourly; 169 Dead or Missing LOS ANGELES, Mar. 4.--The latest count of dead and missing in the flood which devastated this city and its suburbs for miles around was 169, according to reports filed with the United Press at daybreak. The toll was growing hourly. Less than half the bodies of, the reported dead had been recovered and the majority were listed as missing. As bodies were found and identified, police transferred their names from one list to another. Some bodies were found in, homes where the flood trapped them unexpectedly Wednesday night, or landslides of the foothills buried them alive. Others were p(pked up from the banks of receding streams, or from snags where their clothes had caught and held them. Not until late last night was it learned that the flood crest, Just before whipping out to sea, wiped out the village of Atwood and swept through Anaheim to take a toll of 10 known dead and eight missing. Isolated mountain regions were sending their first reports oC disaster. Two CCC youths reached a telephone from Camp Baldy, in the San Bernadino Mountains, early today and reported that the camp was destroyed; two were dead and several missing. There were 200 guests,at the resort when the storm struck. Airplanes were used to drop food ,n some sections where roads were impassable. There was a form of martial law in force at the town of Indio, 175 miles southeast of Los Angeles, where the xlice chief blocked the roads, to cecp refugees out. There was no serious damage in the town, and pubic food kitchens were providing for the natives, but authorities said there were no facilities for any more people and scarcely enough food to go around. The report, was broadcast from an United Airlines plane. The collapse of utility lines left one-fourth of Los Angeles, principally the west side, in darkness last night and more than 20 surrounding communities had no power. The nunicipai power and light bureau icre reduced the current generated by emergency steam plants. High waters were delaying repairs to the damaged Boulder Dam transmission me.

By midnight the stars were shining brightly in Los Angeles, where 11 inches of rain fell in four days, water was draining from the streets and some refugees were returning to their homes. In the lower, worse-stricken areas, others had no homes left. The Los Angeles River, spread out a block wide had carried away buildings and bridges and strewn the debris along its banks or swept them out to the ocean. The worst catastrophe so far reported was in the Anaheim-Atwood area, about 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles, where the Santa Ana River poured out a wall of water through a levee break. A groat wave swept through the Mexican settlement, destroyed more than 20 homes and swept on to join other flood waters roaring down Carbon canyon. The two streams converged north of Anaheim and wrecked another 20 houses. Ten bodies were recovered in the area; many persons were missing, and both towns were still submerged. The destruction of property ran inlo countless millions of dollars. City Attorney Lloyd Aldrich of Los Angeles reported at n meeting late last night that it would cost $3,000,000 to clean up this city and replace the ruined streets and bridges. He said it would take three and a half months to clear away the debris and a year to replace the bridges. He said Federal old was needed for reconstruction. Aldrich called it "the greatest SPRING HATS Smartest New Shades and Shapes Manhattan $2.95 and $3.95 Stetson $5.00, $6.00, $7.50 BiLLY GOLDSTONE Title \- Trust Hide. catastrophe In LOJ Angelci history." Army engineers explained that the four days of heavy rains on the steep-denuded mountain areas 80 miles east ot Los Angeles had sent a deluge into the headwaters of the Los Angeles and Santa Ana Rivers. The channels o£ the streams were nnrrf.w nnd shallow, fnr inadequate for the x'olumc of water. Brush firos had stripped the vegetation from many of the mountain slopes, nnd the water rolled down deep gorges, gained momentum from the cloudbursts in the lowlands. and spread out fanwise over the 30 f 000 square miles of watershed. The city lies midway between a line ot mountain ranges and the ocean. West of Los Angeles, in the path of the flood, were Santa Monica and Malibu Beach; south \vcve the commercial ports of Long Beach and San Pedro nnd many smaller towns; eastward wore the citrus fanning communities of Santa Ana, Riverside and San Bernardino. The first threat of food shortage occurred today at San Bernardio, a Continued on Pace Fifteen. COLORFUL PARADE OF prettiest prints to make you your prettiest this Spring!
