Less Loss Of Life Than Estimated
Early Communication Furnishes
One Hope In Disaster



(By Associated Press)
BOSTON, Nov. 5.-Cold and hunger
stalked the hills of New England to-
night in the wake of the most disas-
trous flood of this section's history.
Substantial reductions in the appar-
ent loss of life furnished the one
bright spot in late reports today. Ap-
prehension over the fate of Montpelier,
capital of'Vermont, was removed with
the establishment of direct communi-
cation. Although 30-square miles in
and near the city have been complete-
ly inunated, only one know death has
Crashing through power dams, res-
ervoirs and all other man-made ob-
stacles, scores of ordinarily peaceful
monutain streams are raging towards
the mountain towns, bearing with
them debris of mills, stores and
The crest of the flood and the crisis
in the cases of scores of towns will
not be reached before tomorrow noon,
but already there has been recorded
a toll of two score and more known
dead and a,property loss which will
run into many millions.
Shortage of food and of medical
supplies to meet the grave conditions
left by the rushing waters is the im-
mediate problem bf the most stricken
districts. The exact number was im-
possible to ascertain because of in-
terrupted communication.
Village Wiped Out0't
It was learned that the village of
' Gaysville In -the township of Stock-
bridge, Windsor county, Vermont, had
been virtually wiped out by the flood-
ed waters of the Whi~te river. A mes-
senger tramped over the mountains to
Burlington to report that because of
the floods the town of Waterbury was
in need of food.
That seven persons, including Lieut.
Gov. S. Hollister Jackson, had lost
their lives in Barre, Vermont, was
definitely learned this afternoon
through a radio message from the
Barre Times to the Associated Press,
which was picked up by an amateur
in New Bedford, Mass. Later word
was that 13 others were believed dead.
The lieutenant-governor fell into a
pool in Potash brook while trying to
reach his home yesterday and was
drowned. His body was recovered
yesterday afternoon.
Barre Suffers $2,00000) DamageI
The message said the city of Barrel
has been damagea to the extent of
$2,000,000. A radio message to Army
headquarters in Washington from Fort
Ethan Allen near Burlington, Vt., said
that there were eight known dead in
Vermont, but did not give names or
locations. It was uncertain whether
this included 'those in Barre.
A report reached Burlington late
today that a large dam at Pittsford,
Vermont, had gone out, and that the
city of Rutland was "panic-stricken
as a result."
The only message to get through
the crippled wires from St. Albans,
Vermont, today to the Associated
Prss, said that the St. Albans Mes-
senger was trying to verify reports
of "big loss of life" in the the Missis-
ouoi valley in northern Vermont.
To tle deaths previously reported
there were added Iate today seven
more fatalities due to the flood wat-

Lecturer Is Nationally Known Writer
Of Seve al Books, Including
Work On German Poet
Dr. Lewis Browne, nationally known
author and lecturer, will speak here
this morning at 11 o'clock in Lane hall
on some phases of the life of Hein-
rich Heine, famous German poet and
philosopher. Dr. Browne has spent
several years in the pulpit where he
attained national fame for his theories
and practices of liberalism in the pul-
pit. In addition he has written sev-
eral non-fiction books which rank
among the best .sellers of recent
years, including "Stranger Than Fic-
tion," "This Believing World," and a
very recent book, "That Man Heine,"
which has aready evoked much fav-
orable comment., His Ann Arbor ap-
pearance will be under the auspices of
the Hillel Foundation.
Dr. Browne was born in England,
but received a great part of his educa-
tion in this country, coming here at
an early age with his parents. He
worked his way across the country to
California, desiring to come into con-
tact with laborers and people of all
classes.. He found the working man in
his true conditions through this work
and became immediately interested in-
the laboring class and its problems of
life. After residing with his parents
in California for some time, he en-
rolled in the University of Cincinnati
where he studied for several years.
Dr. Browne, in writing his books
and preparing material for his many
platform speeches, has always main-
tained the policy of personal investi-
gation and research, often travelling
widely for many months in order to
gather material. Commenting on his
attitudes toward certain subjects, Dr.
Browne has remarked, "When I fil~
ished college, I was very much the
radical with all sorts of theories re-
garding the working man, the labor
problem, and so forth; I asked my
father about these matters, and he
said: Go, find out for yourself!'"
This procedure has been followed
faithfuly by Dr. $rowne in all his
President Clarence Cook Little will

tion series at the Plymouth Congrega-
tional church in Lansing this after-

President Little, who returned this
morning from Chicago, where he ad-
dressed the alumni banquet held Fri-
day night and attended the game yes-
terday, will speak on "The Evolution

decisive score of 20 to 0.
While the chilled crowd of close to
40,000 spectators looked on, Prince-
ton's brilliant sophomore halfback, Ed
Witmer, of Pittsburgh, scored all three
of the Tiger touchdowns with one of
the year's greatest exhibitions of ball
carrying. Witmer's flashing, plunging
drives were the outstanding features
of a game that kept Princeton's un-
beaten slate clean.
In the closing minutes of the game,
led by the twisting dashes of Byron
Eby, Ohio's forces swept down the
field from their 18-yard line to Prince-
ton's 3-yard line where Eby made it
first down. Four plays were unable to
buck the Orange and Black wall, and
the Tigers took the ball on downs as
the final whistle blew.
Ralph Welch, whose playing is well-
remembered by Harvard, appeared in

Rich smashed for 4 yards at left
guard and Chicago took time out. The
strategy apparently did little good
and Rich went through behind Baer
and Bovard for eight yards. He failed
Ito make first down by inches on the
next smash but he followed this up
by making it first down on Stagg-
men's 4 yard line. Here the Maroons
stiffened in a desperate effort, Rich
making a yard on each of his next
' tries.
Michigan Scores By Lateral Pass
Wolverine smartness w'ould be
