The Philippine News Service reported, "hundreds" dead or missing in the Tugaya district alone of Lanao province. Earlier PNS said there were 164 confirmed deaths in four districts of that province. For nearly eight hours the earth trembled and shook. The ground split • open, and and hot water were "reported issuing from cracks in the ground. Some houses toppled into Lake Lanao.

His supporters were jubilant. But a Labor party spokesman said there is no WS swing to the ConseratLves. "The Labor voters," he said, "are just not turning out." On the other hand Lord Woolton, chairman of the Conservative party said: "The results are encouraging. They show a movement to the right which has been evident for some time now." Watched Closely Though the races have no effect on the makeup of Parliament, trends were watched closely because of speculation that the Conservative government may call a general election this year to take advantage of current rifts in the Laborite ranks. It has to call an election before October 1956. The voting is light in the 20 counties that are balloting this week. Party leaders predicted the same apathy might show itself in the 42 oilier counties which vote next week. Blame was placed on a strike which has choked off the massive circulations of London's national newspapers since last Friday. In London's County Council— where Labor has ruled without interruption since 1934—the Conservatives have unseated 14 Laborites. Labor retained its control. Gain Six Seats In suburban Middlesex County, the Conservatives picked up six spats from Labor in retaining control of the Council. The new lineup there was 52 Conservatives, 35 Laborites. In .some of the districts less than 20 per cent of the retristered voters ! rcmn[ j_ trip turned out. A labor .spokesman attributed this to the strike which has halted publication of London's 13 daily newspapers since last Friday. Political observers said if the Conservative trend held over into tiny forthcoming general election, that party could count nn a jump in iUs present House of Commons majority of 21. The local and parliamentary voting districts are tlie same. studded belt of northwestern Mindanao, second largest island in the archipelago. The lirst heavy shock hit the area at 2:15 a.m. Thereafter a chain reaction of tremors set in, heaving the earth on Panay, Negros, Samar, Cebu, Leyte and Bohol islands. The Philippine Red Cross said the death toll appeared largest ai Lake Lanao on Mindanao, Coastal towns to the west were devastated. Houses crumpled, churches collapsed and the power 'failed. 164 Confirmed Dead Capt. Angela Cruz, public relations officers of the 4th Military Area, embracing Mindanao, reported there were 164 confirmed dead in Lanao province and 15 missing. A Philippine News Service dispatch from Iligan. reported earth fissures measuring as wide as a foot in some places. The tremors caused landslides. The news service, said 10 persons were hurt at Iligan and a waterfront office building there slid into the sea. From Ozfimis City (Misamis), a town of 35,262, an estimated one million dollars in damage was reported. At least 2,000 were homeless there. "Everyone in this city and nearby towns thought the world had ended and death had come," a Manila Times correspondent messaged from Ozamis. The Weather Bureau plotted the epicenter at some 600 miles south and southeast of Manila or a point between Ozamis and Iligan cities in Mindanao. Worst in North Ozamis is located in Misamis Occidental province, IHgan, with a population of 25,725, is in Lanao province to the east. The Weather Bureau said the greatest intensity of the earthquake was recorded at Dlpolog City, population 40,618, on the northern tfp of Zamboanga province on Mindanao.

Our English j Uni GOP or^Jim/ftUoij Draff Ike Move is Underway NEW YORK //7V--Prf;:-:drnt Ki- senhower's "home county" Republicans in Manhattan have started "a draft Ike" movement for lflf>fi. The New York County word "angel" is derived, through the Greek from a Persian word meaning courier or messenger. The angels were messengers of God. At a time when God seemed far away, it was felt that He must ave such beings to keep Him in touch with His world, ft was believed that particular angels were charged with responsibility for special parts of the creation. This imagery appears in the Book of Revelation, where there is "(he angel of water" (Rev. 16:5, RSV) — Tertullian thought this the baptismal angel; 'the au^et who has power over fire" (Rev. 14:18, RSV): and "four angels standing at (he four corners of the earth, holding; back ihe lour winds of the earth" (Uev. 7;I, RSV). Yet another angel mingles incense "with the prayers of all the salnta" (Rev, 8:3, RSV). In all these ways the Bible pictures God as being in close touch with His creation. Sometimcfi God's care is represented as committed to others of His creatures. When Eliahj hid himself by the brook Cherith, "the ravens brought him bread and meat In the morning, and bread and ment tn (he evening" (I KJnjfg 17:6), It Is the teaching of JCSUK that God knows about our need.
