LOS ANGELES, Calif., March 11.
-(IP)-Southern California trembled
tonight as she measured her earth-
quake dead in scores, her injured in
thousands, and her property damage
in tens of millions of dollars.
Recurring earth shocks, in addition
to the 23 major convulsions that
killed many and maimed and har-
rassed the densely populated metro-
politan area, kept rasping at'the al-
ready raw nerves of the 2,000,000
persons who escaped unscathed. -
As afternoon wore on into night
the less severe shocks got' beyond
count. Grief, suffering and fear edged
into the wide. picture of death and
destruction as the citizenry watched
the corpse hunters fill. the maarble
slabs of the morgue, read the casualty
list and inspected the far-lung ruins,
all the while keeping on edge for the.
shocks which scientists said might
continue for days or even weeks.
1,000 Hospitalized
The ever-changing casualty figures
stood unofflicially tonight at.126.dead
and possibly 5,000 injured, including
everything from scratches . and
bruises to cases that may prove fatal.
The number of persons requirng-ac-
tual hospital treatment was estimat-
ed at 1,000 for the entire area.
Property damage was estimated as
at least $45,000,000 including wrecked
business buildings and schools,
broken utility lines, damaged streets
and harbor channels.
Bodies were still sought in ruins at
Long Beach, which bore the brunt of
the quake.

ism, looting and ghoulish acts,

Failure to recognize the prin-

for the disastrous damage caused
by the recent earthquake in Cali-

"Rigidity is a false principle,"
he said. "Resiliency is the qual-
ity which will allow buildings to
withstand earthquakes."
Other features of buildings which
will allow them to resist violent
quakes are, according to Mr.
Wright, a low center of gravity,
foundations not too deeply im-
