Training School j By BILL VOGRIN Associated Press Writer CARBONDALE, Kan. - An unusual late-season tornado tossed and tumbled house trailers as it ripped through a mobile home park, killing two people and injuring 10 others. The flurry of fall tornadoes Wednesday also hit Oklahoma, where the National Weather Service said as many as three twisters touched down and damaged houses and vehicles. The twister that struck this eastern Kansas town Wednesday night gave residents little time to react. "It happened so quickly it would make your head swim," said Mildred Boyer, 79, owner of the Mineral Springs Trailer Court in this town about 10 miles south of Topeka."It got still. It got dead hot. It seemed like it came right down and dropped." The tornado killed a middle-aged man who was found buried under debris, and killed a woman whose trailer home just outside the mobile home park was demolished, said Osage County Sheriff Robert Masters. The names of the victims were being withheld until relatives could be notified. The 10 people injured at the mobile home park were treated at the scene for minor cuts, bruises and shock, said Osage County ambulance squad director Tony Bell. Masters said he did not know the extent of the damage to the 16-trailer court, but said at least five of the homes were extensively damaged. The weather service reported several tornadoes near Selling and Chester in northwest Oklahoma. "We may be talking about only one tornado, possibly two or as many as three in the same general area," said Mike Branick, a forecaster with the weather service. At least one home in Chester was destroyed, but its occupants escaped injury as the house col- Summer farm accidents kill 16 in state By The Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Farm accidents claimed 16 lives in Kentucky during a three-month period, the Kentucky Farm Bureau reported today. . The deaths for the months of July, August and September raise the total number of farm fatalities in Kentucky for 1984 to 45. The quarterly figure is lower than the, 21 deaths reported for the same period last year. But there were also 45 fatalities at the end of the first nine months of 1983. Eleven of the 16 deaths were tractor-related, said David Finney of the farm bureau. He said that pattern has been consistent since the group began compiling figures two years ago. Of the 45 deaths this year, 15 have been caused by tractor overturns. "Farm tractors, even relatively small ones, are very powerful machines that tend to continue in motion after accidents until they reach a very solid obstacle." He said there is growing support for adding roll bars as standard equipment on tractors. The farm bureau's safety advisory committee recently recommended that the organization seek their use. Deere and Co., a major farm equipment manufacturer, recently announced its 1985 models will include a roll bar and seat belt combination. Many of the deaths in Kentucky could have been prevented if roll bars had been used, Finney said. lapsed around them, police said. In Carbondale, Ray Bames said he had been taking a shower and his friend, Tanya Pearson, had been watching television when the tornado struck. Barnes said he ran from the bathroom to the bedroom and dived under the bed, while Pearson grabbed onto a couch. The trailer was turned over repeatedly by the twister Barnes ended up on top of his bed on a pile of debris, while Pearson found herself sitting in the grass next to the destroyed trailer, he said. Victims of the tornado were told to go to a school where a relief shelter had been set up, but a dispatcher for the sheriff's department said all the displaced people d found shelter with friends and relatives. The tornadoes are "a little bit unusual for this time of year," said Pete Reynolds of the National Severe Storms Forecast Center. cm if ft IT'S TIME TO VOLUNTEER FOR GIRL SCOUTS Whatever time you can give GIRL SCOUTS HAS A PLACE FOR YOU! b IJfcrrtttnr, ; litaflhh r. .-.
