Ernest J. Swift Appointed Head
of Red Cross Body; Confers
With American Minister.
MANAGAUA, Nicaragua, April 3.
-(P)-The task of directing the
feeding and rehabilitation of Man-
agua's 40,000 residents, made home-
less by Tuesday's disastrous earth-
quake, was taken over today by
Ernest J. Swift, Red Cross official,
after his arrival by airplane from
The Red Cross official's first step
after reaching Campo de Marte-
marine and American headquarters
where Mathew E. Hanna, United
States minister, is housing his lega-
tion in the center of tents, was to
confer with Mr. Hanna and then
make an inspection trip through
the devastated city.
Swift Holds Conference.
Later Mr. Swift conferred with
marine and medical corp officers
and others to decide what immedi-
ate steps should be taken.
Meanwhile, other n a v a 1 relief
groups congregated at Corinto, to
which city a number of. wives and
children of the United States ma-
rines were taken by airplane today.
From there they will be returned to
their homes in the United States.
Naval ships brought food and
medical supplies to Corinto from
Balboa, Canal Zone. These will be
brought to stricken Managua by
airplanes, trucks and trains. Since
the railroad is not open all the way
to the capitol, trucks will meet the
trains with relief supplies at the
end of its line, several miles from
the city.
The medical corp, which sorely
needed aid for a while, is carry-
ing on its work efficiently although
doctors and their assistants are ex-
hausted from long hours of nerve-
racking work.
Hatfield Leads Medical Work.
Leading the work of the medical
detachment, Lieut. Comemander W.
B. Hatfield, of West Virginia, has
shown unfailing energy throughout
the disaster. His leadership has
been an important feature of the
rescue work.
The iron hand of martial law to
prevent looting in the destroyed
city resulted last night in the shoot-
ing of four plunderers by the na-
tional guard. This is unofficially
reported to have made a total of
approximately 20 looters shot to
date, although marine officers have
not confirmed this.
One of the commodities of food
most needed is milk for the babies.
Although marines had a large store
of condensed milk on hand, it was
insufficient for the wants of thous-
Ronny Johannson to Conclude
Recitals; Debut Made
in Vienna.

Ronny Johannson, Swedish danc-
er, will appear in a dance recital at
8:15 o'clock tonight in the Lydia
Mendelssohn theatre. She will con-
clude a series of dance recitals
sponsored by the theatre this year,
which included Yvonne Georgi and
Carola Goya.
Miss Johannson has been asso-
ciated with Elsa Findlay and John
Martin in their New York dancing
school since her arrival in the Unit-
ed States. She made her debut in
Vienna, and has appeared in Co-
penhagen, Berlin, Budapest, Stock-
holm, and Prague, as well as in
New York, Chicago, Baltimore, Co-
lumbia university and the Univer-
sity of North Carolina. In Chicago
she appeared as guest-artist with
the Adolphe Bolm ballets.
