Coals Cover Homes
In its wake lay thousands upon
thousands of tons of fiery red coals,
piling higher and higher over homes
and orchards and vineyards.
The towns engulfed by the molten
rock were San Sebastiano and Massa
di Somma, both about a mile and a
half from the top of the volcanic
mountain. Faced with a similar fate
was Cercola.
Over Vesuvius, indulging in its
most fearsome eruption since 1872,
hung a black pall, and the entire Na-
ples area was in a strange twilight
caused by a cloud of gray dust. The
stream of lava, 90 feet deep at points,
sent'up flames and sulphurous fumes:
Trucks Rushed to Towns
Rushing more than 200 big trucks

last night, the American and British
armies, the RAF and Allied military
governmentplayed a major part in
evacuating the two doomed towns.
Platoon after platoon of soldiers,
including military policemen, entered
the area to assist. A food dump was
established at nearby Pollena where
the townspeople, all homeless, were
given bread, meat, cheese aid coffee.
So bewildered was one woman that
she poured a pitcher of water on the
smoking mass as it piled up behind a
stone wall at the edge of her garden.
Others, protesting that Saint Jan-
uari, protector of Naples, would halt
the flow, tried to prevent the author. ,

Because the film will last only half
an hour on the screen, it was decided
that the story should be told simply
and that only the most typical acti-
vities could be taken, according to
Larry Towe of the University News
Service who is directing the film.
Pictures have already been taken of
a washing machine test, a test in the
wind tunnel and a high temperature
test of steel being made in engineer-
ing research. Also a small group of
freshman nurses has been filmed at
work in the anatomy laboratory.
Three or four classroom shots prob-
ably will represent the hundreds of
classes held in the University.
Extension Service Filmed
At the same time this picture is be-.
ing taken, a shorter film is being
made for the Extension Service
showing its many activities, how it
serves the people of Michigan and
in what ways the citizens outside of
Ann Arbor are making use of it.
Both pictures are being filmed by
Charles H. Chapman of Evanston,
Ill., a former Pathe and Paramount
news photographer. The script is be-
ing written by David Owen of the
speech department and Donald Har-

It is expected that the film will
