Palm Beach, March 19.-(By A. P.)
-A check today of guests listed at the
Breaker hotel and the Palm Beach
hotel, destroyed by fire last night, al-
though still incomplete, showed no
loss of life in either hotel. The early
estimate of $4,000,000 was declared too
low by Fire Chief Schultz today, when
he gave as his opinion that the total
loss, including thousands of dollars of
jewelry, will reach $7,000,000.
Although the Palm Beach postmaster
continued to deny rumors that the
post office was robbed of $20,000 dur-
ing the fire, authorities were said to
be searching for clues that would sug-
gest existence of a plot by which
thieves might have started the fire,
that the harvest in loot might have
been looted from wealthy guests. More
than a score of prisoners are held by
Palm Beach police on charges of loot-
ing after the fire.

As a result of petitions received by t
ifficials of the Union, requesting at
change in the constitution of the or-
anization, a meeting of all Union
nembers of the campus will be called w
ext Wednesday, March 25, for the h
urpose of voting on a proposed t
Lmendment. The change in the con-
titution which is proposed relates to k
he method of nominating men to run
or student offices in the organization. f
The petitions, started by Druids,j r
enior literary honorary society, re- I d
uest a change to the effect that any g
nan, to become a nominee for an
>ffice in the Union, must have the p
anction of the board of directors. b
Che object of the amendment as stated i
y the petition, is to eliminate politics l
n the Union elections and to make it s
ossible for only men who have done
some work for the Union to run for
Ln office.v
In order that an amendment may n

f at least 600 men will be necessary. j n
[f two thirds of the number of men s
oting on the amendment cast their c
allots in favor, the amendment will a
>ecome a part of the constitution. p
At present, candidates for offices are 1i
elected by a nominating committee p
ppointed by the president, and other h
andidates may run if they secure a4v
detition of 200 names. The new clausev
would not eliminate anyone whof
wished to run on a petition, but it
would make his candidacy subject toe
the approval of the board of directors.0
[he new clause would also make the0
names chosen by the nominating com- E
mittee subject to the approval of the E
board of directors.
The board of directors of the Uniont
onsists of the president, recordingI

elected from each school in the Uni-
versity at the annual elections, three
members of the faculty, five alumni

roperty tonight still remaibs the
reatest ever recorded in similar
atastrophes with 848 reported killed
nd 2,909 injured in the five states af-
While the casualty list had been re-
luced from first estimates in some
nstances, word came from hitherto
inreported places to keep the total
asualties almost as high as indicated
n first messages from the devasted
owns and hamlets. After a night of
error, dawn revealed that some small
owns had been virtually obliterated
while whole blocks of larger places
ad been leveled and fire had added
o the horrors of the wind.
The fire for the most parts were
ept from buildings that escaped the
ury of the twister. Outside help ar-
ived from many places during the
ay and by noon relief was well or-
Where there had been happiness,
rosperity and future, the tornado
lasted all in a few cities. To others
t showed fiendish eccentricity by
eveling and blackening portions while
paring the rest.
Nearly half of Princeton, Indiana,
was smitten. A sister city, Griffin was
irtually carried awa, De -Soto, Ili-
ots, with 500 people lost its exist-
nce. A neighbor, Gorham, of 3,000
opulation, was wiped out. Murphys-
oro, Illinois, lost nearly three square
piles of its business and residential
ection. Darkness still hampered res-
ue workers tonight in a few towns
nd lighting systems have not been re-
paired. Autolights, candles, and flash-
ights are - substituting for power
plants. Pullman cars have arrived to
house refugees in one or two sectors;
villages of tents are being used else-

The tornado took its toll over a
territory of 300 miles in 5 hours and
within the same period of time out-
side aid was covering that distance to
carry help and comfort to survivors.
The Red Cross rushed supplies from
St. leouis. Chicago offered $500,000,
ThP Illinois legislature appropriated
a like amount, the Missouri legisla-
ture $25,000 and the southern Illinois
American Legion $6,000. Other con-
tributions are expected to reach $100,-
From the Associated Press casual-
ty list tonight it appears that more
than 100 children and infants were
victims. Every available dwelling
was a morguo in the zone of visita-

ed virtually outdoors. Columns of

Apparently rising in the Missouri
hills, the tornado jumped and zigzag-
ged. Its path was about a mile wide
in some localities; in others it could
be measured by feet.
So tremendous was the force of
wind that in Murphysboro eleven lo-
comotives were reported wrecked, six
of them of the heavy type. Heavy ob-
jects were found several miles from
their original position, and papers
were carried 50 miles.
