Alvin Shipp of Mason City, state highway patrolman, said the majority of the damage was confined to outbuildings on at least three farms in the area. The first place hit was the Fred Kill farm, 34 miles southwest of town on Route 29. The wind missed the house but demolished the outbuildings.

A galvanized! roof on a barn was rolled up like fence wire. A garage was smashed and a car inside was mashed down like a cardboard box. Outbuildings were also destroyed on the Edward Schaubs and C. T. Ainsworth farms.

The houses escaped untouched. Men working on a new home near the south edge of Mason City reported seeing the cloud lift and pass over the town. El Paso One man at El Paso said he saw the storm cloud as he drove a Ion the hichway about two miles south of town. He reported no extensive damage at El Paso but said it rained about one inch in 15 minutes. Lights were off for 3i hours and basements usually kept dry by electric pumps flooded.

Chris Miller of Carlock also was driving down 51 when he saw the funnel-shaped cloud in the southeast. As he reached the Ev- er-een farm he saw tne rooi sections scattered over the ground. He said there was a nar row furrow in a field east of the highway that looked like it had been freshly plowed.

Tele phone lines and four or five poles were also blown down by the storm, according to Deputy Sher iff Curtis Gilberts. Phone lines between Hudson and Blooming ton were also down. Eureka A small tomado struck the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Fehr, destroyed a machine shed, unroofed a chicken house and tore the chimney off the house.

Mrs. Fehr saw the funnel shaped cloud approach from the southwest. Most of the crops on the farm were already harvested so little damage was done in fields. CHILI SUPPER CARNIVAL At Towanda NOV. 15, 1951 5:30 to 9:45 Sponsored by Towanda P.T.A.
