SAN MARINO, Calif.-(/P)-The
exact cause of tiny Kathy Fiscus'
death in a lost well still was im-
determined yesterday.
A story, heard even in police
circles, that she had been stran-
gled to death during the very first
rescue attempt, was emphatically
denied by the county coroner's of-

MINUTES AFTER the three-
year-old fell into the abandoned
well pipe while at play Friday a-
ternoon near her home a rope was
dropped to her.
But, said Dr. Harry L. Deutsch
of the county coroner's office,
she was not strangled by that
rope. Nor, said Dr. Dutsch,
could he immediately confirm
the diagnosis of the Fiscus fam-
ily physician, Dr. Paul fanson,
that Kathy died by drowning
100 feet down in the wall.
Dr. Deutsch said it would be
four days before he could establish
the cause.
LABORATORY tests and mi-
nute examination of the lungs will
be necessary, the autopsy surgeon
Dr. Deutsch said there were
no broken bones. Ie arreed with

E. E. Howard, Kansas City con-

"Bridge Engineering" at a meet-

meeting will be a final report on

the honor committee and a talk
on the civil engineering survey
and geology camp in Wyoming.

"CAN YOU hear me, Kathy?"
she shouted.
"Yes," came back a faint voice.
"Are you lying down?" asked
Mrs. Fiscus.
"Yes," answered Kathy.
There followed more screams,
and the anguished mother fi-
nally made herself heard again.
"Kathy," she asked, "are you
standing up?"
Kathy's answer to this was still
another "yes."
THE FRIGHTENED little girl
had no way of judging her posi-
tion in the fearful black tomb.
Rescue workers lowered a line
50 feet into the rusty old well and
casing and shouted instructions to
Kathy. They told her to grab the
rope; to try to hold on while they
pulled. They thought they felt a
tug at the other end, and then,
gently, they pulled upward. The
noose dangled empty as it came
further down the well casing while
she was trying to comply with in-
structions to grab the rope.

The longest journey human beings ever took is
over for most of the Jewish Displaced Persons.
They started from a point in darkness.
Terror, oppression and death were their baggage.
And now they have arrived at the freedom sta-
tion-the new state of Israel.
Now they are free.
Pause and feel the word in your throat. It bursts
with joy. It is sunlight after darkness.Warmth after
cold. A healing hand on a scarred back.
But freedom is not bread. Freedom is not shelter.
Freedom is not medicine. Freedoin is not a plow,
a lathe, a brick. Freedom cannot unchill the wind
that bites into bones when it is night on the Negev.

Freedom must be fed with the materials that
build life, materials that only we can supple:
Shoes for their feet. Lumber for their houses.
Medical helpso that they may use their new strength
to build the land they have come to live in freely.
Schools, so that torn minds may be healed and put
back to work for a better life.
All that takes money. Money that can come only
from you-from all of us-here in America.
You helped them live through the misery of DP
Camps. You helped transport them to their promn-
ised land.
WVn't you help them now to become free, self-
supporting citizens of their own free land?

Just Five of the Many Things
Your Money Will Accomplish in 1949
1 (losing of DP Camps in Germany and
2 Bring 250,000 Jewish refugees into Israel.
3 Make possible a housing program to speed
the absorption of the newcomers in Israel.
4 Provide for the rehabilitation of hundreds
of thousands of Jews in Europe and North
5 Aid Jewish refugees who enter the U. S. to
integrate themselves into the community.
