PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Berlin Dance Hal! Fire Fatal for 81 Clothing from Victims* Salvaged to Protect •Bodies of the Living BERLIN, Feb. 10 (UP)—German rorkers shuffled through Hie blackened ruins ot n Berlin dnnce hall today seeking additional victims of the flash fire that, killed it lenst 81 masquerading dancers Saturday night. Berlin Police President Paul Markgrnft officially set the death toll at "at least 81" last night when shivering laborers searching the embers of the Cafe Loebel called a halt until dawn. Eight of the dead were British .soldiers. The cafe was in the British Zone of Berlin. Markgraft said 27 complete bodies were removed first, and Hint the rest of the dead were tallied from portions of bodies removed from stacks around (he dance pal- nces's exits. Another police official s:\ld the bodies were so horribly dismembered that the exact death toll might never be known. 100 or More in Hospitals More than a hundred persons were reported by hospilnls to have been treated lor burns and other Injuries. British authorities in the Span- dau Boroug O f Berlin, where the flr c occurred, turned n large museum into an emergency morgue. An estimated 800 revelers at a masquerade were in the building when fire broke out :il n p.m. Saturday, apparently cl llc to an overheated stove. An official British Army spokesman, after inspecting the ruins, Jiaid, "I saw bodies lying nil over »ic place, it was n gruesome sight. Tficy didn't resemble human beings —they were twisted, distorted shape hulks." United Press staff correspondent Roebrt iracger reported from the scene: "I saw German workers fill six caskets with bodies or parts of bodies and take them nwav on a truck. Later, they wcr c in the process o f filling 12 more cefllns." Clothing is Salvaged Clothing salvage operations were a masterpiece of efficiency hi this city where the dead cannot be buried fully clothed as long as the living shiver for lack of garments. The laborers made neat piles of useable shoes, handkej;; 'chiefs, hats and other articles that* might be worn again. Cameras and purses also found their way to two long salvage tables set up within 10 feet of n doorway where scores died in a desperate stampede for freedom from the holocaust, j..., I *H : Olio survivor, Lisclotte Sleeker^ confirmed the British Army view that the stampedes caused more deatlis than the lire itself. "It was Impossible—I cnn't tell you how it was." she said. "Such foolishness—my God!" The siilphurbottom, or blue whale has lower jaw banes weighing iwo tons.
