Tornadoes sweep,

Texas, kill 56

From AP and Reuter
Emergency crews strung lifelines
yesterday to splintered neighborhoods
in this north Texas city and three other
_Tornado Alley" towns hit by tor-
nadoes that killed at least 56 persons
and injured more than 800 others.
Officials. in this town of 96,000
residents said 44 people were killed
when twin tornadoes struck Tuesday
night, levelling two shopping centers
and several residential districts.
POLICE SAID looting started shortly
after the storm struck.
"There's been plenty of it," a police
spokesman said. %


Texas Governor Bill Clements or-
dered 150 National Guardsmen into the
OFFICIALS SAID the area had little
or no warning of the impending
Texas Gov. Bill Clements took to the
air to survey the damage left by
Tuesday's killer twisters and said the
cost to rebuild would run between $200
million and $300 million.
The Department of Public Safety
reported 44 bodies had been found in
Wichita Falls by noon, plus 12 in Vernon
and one in Harrold, a few miles to .the
west. Across the Red River in Lawton,
Okla., three more were counted dead.

AS THE CLEANUP was under way
along the Texas-Oklahoma border,
several other tornadoes struck in
Arkansas, injuring at least 26 persons
in the Polk County communities of
Grannis and Wickes.
The Red Cross said 21 mobile homes
were destroyed and 15 others were
damaged when a twister hit Grannis in
the western part of the state.
Other tornadoes touched down in
rural areas of Washington County,
Conway County, Stone County and Van
Buren County.
BRACED FOR "one horror after
another," often working with emergen-
cy power supplies, doctors and nurses
struggled to patch up the tornado vic-
tims who jammed city hospitals.
The lack of electricity hampered
medical personnel at Wichita General
Hospital, although an extra generator,

sent from Fort Sill, Okla., 50 miles
away, was expected to help. Mean-
while, said nursing supervisor Peggy
Horn, many bones had to be set without
"I think we are going to have one
horror after another when they clear
the rubble," said Ms. Horn.
RESIDENTS milled outside Wichita
General and Bethenia Hospital, waiting
for word of relatives. -
Meanwhile, the south Arkansas town
of Hamburg was hit by its second tor-
nado in four days and while buildings
were damaged, there were no reports of
injuries. A tornado Sunday caused
more than $1 million damage and in-
jured 17 persons.
A small tornado swept across an area
north of Topeka, Kan., yesterday, over-
turning two mobile homes, but no in-
juries were reported.

FOR THOSE too shaken to report
their assault, Krasny suggests that they
ask a third person to report it. Working
under the assumption that the victim

be unwilling to go to trial against her '
assailant, Krasny said the department
"accepts the information and hope tht
we can lipk it to other cases.
In 1973, the legal definition of sexual
assault was broadened in Michigan.
The law, which included four degrees of
criminal sexual conduct, was no longer
sex specific,. The statute was expanded
to include not only intercourse but the
unsolicited touching of private body
to make prosecution of lesser counts of
-sexual abuse a simpler matter. As well, o
assaulted women cannot be questioned
about their past sexual history in court.
