Shaub said that decision to advance the date for the vote was made at a meeting of the union's executive committee last Wednesday night. He gave no reason for advancing the date nor for the delay in announcing the decision of the executive committee. Actual balloting on the strike vote authorization will be preceded, Shaub said, by a meeting of the union membership at the Moose Hall, 220 East King St., starting at 2 p. m.

Miami, Fla. (Saturday) (AP) A tremendous hurricane bored through Central South Florida Friday night and pounded toward the Northeastern section of the state. Still packing winds of super hurricane force, the whirling monster was neanng the town of Okeechobee City at 1 a. m., moving between Northwest and North Northwest at 12 to 14 miles per hour. STRONGER WINDS AT CENTER Vero Beach, midway up the coast between Miami and Jacksonville, had 97-mile-an-hour winds with jrusts up to 110 miles. Winds probably are stronger near the storm's center, the weather bureau said in a midnight bulletin. Ominous red and black hurricane warning flags remained displayed from Fort Lauderdale to St. Augustine and around Lake Okeechobee, where the wind reached 110 miles an hour. Storm warnings were up from St. Augustine to Charleston and on the Florida West coast from Fort Myers to Panama City. NORTH EASTERN FIARIDA WARNED Most of Northeastern Florida was warned to take precautions for the protection of life and property. The storm slammed into the Southeast Florida "Gold Coast" with l.iO-milo-an-hour winds. It hit Canal Point, 40 levee prevented new Catastrophe at lake By LUTHER JONES Publisher, Belle Glade Herald Belle Glade, Fla. uP) We have been through a real hurricane, and there isn't anyone in these parts who has any doubts about it. Except for the big government levee around Lake Okeechobee, this would have been a repetition of 1928. In that year a great hurricane blew the water out of the lake and drowned about 1,800 people. The loss of life wouldn't have been that great this time, because we know more about hurricanes and have more substantial buildings. But I would estimate that the wind caused a 10-foot tide on the South end of Lake Okeechobee, and waves were up probably another five' feet. That would have covered us except for the levee.

Both St. Joseph's and the Lancaster General Hospital ambulances were summoned. Regan was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident bv Dr. Wallace G. Obenshain, of the St. Joseph's staff. The home had been constructed on solid ground and several weeks ago workmen, including Markley began to dig out a cellar. The bungalow, about 24 feet by 60 feet, was supported on a number of posts set into the excavation. Friday night the men were digging out in preparation to laying a cinder block and cement foundation, when the posts on one side of he bungalow apparently settled into the ground. T t 1 CL r C n When thev did it caused the lOtalS Snow Uains ror Uemo- house to siide off the posts on the opposite side and fall into the excavation which is from four to six feet deep. Markley at the time was under the house. When it began to settle he tried to run up one of the embankments to crawl to safety but the falling house struck him across the back and pinned him against the bank.
