Mallory Construction 450 N. Third - Wood River, III. Wegman Electric Co. 915 Whitelaw - Wood River, III. General Refrigeration & Heating 308 East St. Louis Ave. East Alton, III. MIAMI,,Fla. (AP) — Residents of the southern coastal areas of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti were warned today to flee to higher ground before the arrival of dangerous tides pushed up by hurricane Edith. At 8 a.m. (EST), the 100-mile- an-hour storm was churning up the Caribbean Sea 175 miles south of Puerto Rico and increasingly heavy swells were racing toward : I that island. l\ This afternoon and tonight, fol- :i; lowing the passage of the hurri- ;J ] cane, (he San Juan Weather Bu* i reau said flooding could be xpect- ed on the south coast and central regions of Puerto Rico. Dangerously high storm tides,! the Weather Bureau said, will I reach the southern coast of Hisan- iola (which embraces the Dominican Republic and Haiti) some itime tonight. | Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center at Miami declined to predict what course the 'hurricane might take beyond the next 12 hours. Forecaster Arnold Sugg declared, however, that the storm "is not going to dissipate and it cc.nnot get out of the Caribbean without hitting something. Somebody is in trouble." Since it was born in the Atlantic Ocean, and crashed through the Windward and Leeward islands, the hurricane has maintained a beeline course to the west-northwest. If it continues in this direction, the storm center would pass south of Hispaniola. Cuba was next in line for trouble after Hispaniola. A northward turn, always possible, would be necessary before a threat developed to Florida and the rest of the U.S. mainland. Radio reports received here by Pan American World Airways said the hurricane damaged 90 per cent of all property on the French island of Martinique at the eastern end of the Caribbean. There was no mention, however, of death or injuries. Boy's genuine marbles, made of stone from Bavarian quarries were once manufactured in enormous quantities for export from Germany. Sixty such fills still existed at the end of the 19th Century.

The new sewer lines will conduct the water from an extended section of Elm Street pavement to a duct under Mather Street. City Council recently acted to approve jhe sewer project to relieve a condition long complained of. GRIND EXCEEDING SLOW WICHITA, Kan. ff— The wheels of justice appear to be slowing down at Wichita. A recent spot check of civil jury cases pending in county courts show that an average of 22 months elapses from the time suits are filed until they come to trial.
