One Girl At Hall Complaint Says, Has Gained 16 to 20 Pounds On “Lousy” Fare Liner Aground But All Saved Columbus, O., Dec. ll—bp)—Ohio State University officials apparently remained unperturbed today over coed Vera Goldman’s calory and vitamin revolt in Neil Hall dormitory. Miss Goldman, freshman from Cleveland Heights, yesterday obtained the signatures of 102 of her 275 follow dormitory coeds on her complaining petition that dormitory diet was deficient, or as she tersely summed it up, “lousy.” Making the Napoleonic observation that “an army travels on its stomach," she buttressed the petition, filed with the student senate, with a supplementary letter listing these lapses in culinary art; “The meals are badly planned, starches and cheap fats predominating x xx meats are tough, stringy and unappetizing and vegetables are cooked to soggy messes and there is too much of stalish bread and cornstarch pud- d:ng. “Two hundred and seventy girls are being literally starved by those who are supposed to be caring for their welfare while at school, xxx. “One girl at the hall has gained between 16 and 20 pounds in two months because of the starchy food served there.” Other alleged bits of domestic mis-feasance, mal-feasance and non-feasance included: Breakfast served too early, meals (3) not worth $1 per day, poor coffee and no cocoa, condoned milk for coffee cream and canty Sunday evening meals. The student Senate gallantly jumped into the breach by appoint eg a committee to investigate the charges but university officials, including those who supervise the residence halls, said that no co’ plaint had bern made (Continued from Page One) gers and her predicament. In San Francisco, it was reported there were 650 passengers and 408 crew. Information here said approximately 380 passengers, including 300 Chinese steerage, and 333 crew. Hong Kong dispatches reported the liner, one of the American merchant marine’s five major ships, was pounding heavily with a large hole in her bow, but line officials here and at San Francisco headquarters said they were without such information. Dollar Line officials said they had not received information concerning the cause of the grounding. The ship was making its first journey over a new course between Japan and Manila, where she was due today.

RESCUE SPEEDED UP FOR SNOWBOUND FAMILIES Buffalo, N. Y., Dec. ll— (A ’)—A new snowstorm swirled into blizzard-hit Buffalo and suburbs today while emergency crews struggled to open roads and administer relief lo snowbound families. Snow fell rapidly in downtown Buffalo, but it was not accompanied by the gales that have contributed to misery and even death since the storm began four days ago. The storm’s death toll in West em New York stood at six, with four others dead from snowstorms in other parts of New York State this week. Tales f suffering and dramatic rescues came today from the suburbs, some of which were so far bm led under snow as to be scarcely recognizable. One of several ski and snowshoe relief parties reported that families near Sheridan Drive—usually a busy thoroughfare—had even been burning furniture for heat. One party which trudged through tile night with groceries for snowbound homes came back with a report that they had found one i v ther feeding her children tile last scraps of bread dipped in hot water. Other families also wet re out of food, they reported. Governor Lehman announced in Albany that the federal government has authorized use of all available equipment of tile 106th Field Artillery, New York National Guard, to help municipalities in the Buffalo area “dig out.” All available fire equipment was called out in Niagara Falls, also hard hit by the storm, when fire swept through two downtown stores. Although the fire remained out of control six hours after it started, firemen said they did not fear that tile flames would -plead. I mted Slates Meteorologist James ii. Spencer said reports coming from snowbound Kenmore, Tonawanda and Amherst, a& well as tile North residential sections of Buffalo indicated that Hie storm was the worst rn the history of those areas. 'Die Weather Bureau reported an average of 32.6 inches of snow nice the storm began in Buffalo. In the towns of Tonawanda and Amherst two babies were expected to be born momentarily to marooned mothers, without aid of physicians. A reporter who flew over the snowbound zone north of here reported that “hundreds and hundreds” of automobiles could be seen stalled in snowdrifts where t hey had been for three or four days. Paths leading from the cals in onie cases could be traced to farm houses and filling stations. In several ca.-es buses were off the roads and abandoned. “Everything looked dead and quiet,” he said. “Except near one or two main roads we saw' few people. Eveiy body seemed to be staying indoors. Occasionally there was somebody shoveling -now. Even several large factor* ies appeared to he surrounded by unbroken snow.” Meanwh Ie, Ogdensburg, city of 17,000 on the St. Lawrence river 300 miles north of Buffalo, dug its way out of drifts five to ten feet deep n the wake of a severe .snow storm.

FIRE CHIEF GIVES WARNING AGAINST “RED CHRISTMAS” Grounds Of Villa Of Death Searched sayinc 'n by Hoven (Continued from Page One) against Roger Million, supposed head of the group, and his woman companion, brunette Collette Tricot.

Collette Tricot, who police said was Million’s mistress, disclosed to questioners that she had a husband working in an automobile factory and an eight-year- old son.

Danger of Fire Pointed Out as Holiday Season and "Rush” Approaches Despite the high spirits of tho coming holiday, tragedy can enter any home unless precaution is taken against blazes, Fire Chief George Hall said today. “Beware of a ‘red Christmas,’ ” Chief Hall said and went on to explain that a “ ‘red Christmas’ is one that is marred by fire.” Fire hazards are usually great; er in stores and homes during the ! Christmas season, he said. “This : is tile lug season for merchants,” Chief Hall said. “If a fire puts them out of business for only a few days, their losses in business will be great." Most fires are easily avoided, he continued. Rubbish, paper, and other wrappings should be removed from homes and stores quickly and not allowed to accumulate. the fire department head said in his warning. “The Christmas tree is also a danger spot," Chief Hall said. “The old-fashioned candles were beautiful but electric lights of good design are far safer. Since fir trees are very inflammable, and since they dry. out very quickly, natural Christmas trees should be removed shortly after the first of the year. To keep them in the house longer is allowing a fire hazard that has given much trouble in the past.” J I is.
