There'll be no more welcome at

The police reported that the
door mat had been taken from the
front door of the Kappa house
sometime last week by "person or
persons unknown."
The girls reported their loss
Thursday, and claimed that they
had not missed the mat until last
Monday. An extensive search for
the culprit is being made by Ann
Arbor's 29 police, for the Kappas
want their "welcome" rug backn

The country is moving rapidly and

Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
School, Dean Bates states this opin-
ion in the current issue of the Mich-

day.
His conclusion is based on the de-
tailed report on "Recent Social

was prepared at the oficial request of
former President Hoover. Dean Bates
offers his opinion as part of a sym-
posium participated in by himself,
Prof. Robert C. Angell of the socio-

ment.

unexpected strength in qualifying for
five places. Chicago and Illinois had

TheQhakeAt A Glance
(By The Associated Press)
Earthquakes shook southern California violently for hours last
night, causing widespread damage to lives and property. A quick
glance over the district showed:
KNOWN DEAD-Total, 123.
INJURED-2,500.
SHOCKS STARTED 5:55 p. m. P. S. T. (8:55 p. n. Ann
Arbor time), continuing with varied intensity for hours. Heavy
shocks at 8:40 p. m. P. S. T. (11:40 p. m. Ann Arbor time) and
9:19 p. m. P. S. T.
LOS ANGELES--12 dead, about 1,500 injured; numerous
buildings damaged as cornices and facades toppled into crowded
streets; hospitals crowded.
LONG BEACH-65 dead, about 1,000 injured; large part of
business section is in ruins; fires reported in many sections of the
city; communications practically cut off for hours.
COMPTON-13 dead, many injured; buildings damaged.
HUNTINGTON PARK-12 dead, many injured; buildings
damaged; high school burned.
WATTS-4 dead.
ARTESIA-4 dcad.
BELL FLOWER-3 dead.
WILMINGTON, HERMOSA BEACH, GARDEN GROVE,
NORWALK and WALNUT PARK-Each, one dead.
SAN DIEGO-Slight dlamnage; naval vessels depart for Long
Beach to render aid; 600 nxmines landed from ships at Los Angeles
harbor; 800 soldiers from Fort McArthur, San Pedro, aid police.

Although a toll of only 123 known dead was re.
ported early this morning, thousands were listed as
inissing as hysteria reigned through California, Esti-
mates of the total casualties ran far above 500.
BULLETIN'S
LONG BEACH, Calif., March 10.-(AP)-Sixty-five bodies of
earthquake victims were reported recovered from the ruins here at 10:45
p. in. tonight (1:45 a. m. Saturday, Ann Arbor time). It was estimated
the death toll might be considerably nearer 100.
LOS ANGELES, March 11.-(Saturday)-(AP)-Violent earth.
quakes continuing three hours after the first shock of death and destruc-
tion added confusion to the scene of the increasing damage and terror
to all of Southern California.
At 9:14 p. m. yesterday (12:14 a. m. Saturday in Ann Arbor) the
toll was reported from most authentic sources available reached 64 dead
and more than 2,500 injured.
The isolation of Long Beach continued almost complete at this hour,
but reports from persons arriving from that area indicated that radio
flashes and terror-inspired rumors of hundreds being dead in that city
were without foundation. One police teletype report had 500 dead in
Long Beach.
The path of death stretched from Santa Ana to Long Beach and
Los Angeles.
As these lines are being written the building of the Los Angeles
office of the Associated Press is swaying, with accentuated jolts from time
to time and, at intervals of 10 to 20 minutes, extremely violent shocks
caused all hands to reach for some support as in a swaying small craft
atsea.
Hospitals are crowded to overflowing at emergency centers of the
city and urgent calls have been sent out for al emergency hospitals.
Surgeons found extremle difficulty in handling cases of the injured
j as the great shock shook the operating tables upon which were stretched
the patients.
The wide area affected by the destructive convulsions of the earth
strata made it extremely difficult to make a survey of the toll in lives
and property.
Recurrent shocks added new damage as attempts were made to
check the fires.
Los Angeles at this hour through official sources had reports of prob-
ably 12 dead, but estimates of more than 1,500 injured.
L s Aw eles said that the exigYencv of caringv for the injured and the
