Relief Workers Estimate
More than 1,000 Left
Destitute by Hurricane
HOUSTON, Tex., Aug. 16.-(P)-
Tenant farmers were the principal
suffers of the hurricane which
swept southern coastal Texas Sat-
urday night and Sunday, taking at
least 35 lives.
Relief workers estimated more than
1,000 persons were destitute. Emer-
gency stations continued the treat-
ment of the injured, estimated by
station attendants variously from 200
up and in most cases requiring only
first aid.
The Red Cross and Houston relief
societies furnished food and other
necessities. The government ordered
the coast guard cutter Unalga from
Fort Lauderdale, fla., to aid in relief
work.
Agricultural authorities said the
damage to crops would run into mil-
lions, with the major ones-cotton
and rice--estimated to be damaged
to the extent of $2,000,000.
At West Columbia, Rev. H. R.
Spraker, named to head relief in that
section, said 800 persons, in addition
to the injured, must be cared for.
"I mean 800 persons in addition
to those who, although hard hit, will
be able to finance themselves in re-
building and repairing their homes
and carrying on until they are able
to harvest a crop next year, or who
have jobs which will feed them," he
said.
"They have lost all their posses-
sions. They aie without homes, suffi-
cient clothing or means of earning a
living. About half are Negroes and
Mexicans."
Floyd Enlow, county attorney of
Brazonia county, heading the relief
organization at Engleton, had a simi-
lar story.
A citizens committee at Freeport
was supplying food to 400 persons,
and perhaps the same number were
being cared for by friends and neigh-
bors, members of the committee said.
Grand Rapids Without
Car Death in 6 Months
CHICAGO, Aug. 16.-{R)-The Na-

Grand Rapids, Mich., completing a
six-months period Saturday without
a motor vehicle death, made the
best record of any city of its popula-
tion in the country. The city this
year has had but two motor fatali-
ties, the last on Feb. 6.
The winners advance automatical-
ly to Saturday's finals.

Fleeing Convicts Alarm
Residents of Oklahoma
GRANITE, Okla., Aug. 16.-()-
Southwest Oklahoma residents were
as vigilant today .in their look-out
for 19 escaped convicts from the
state reformatory here as were pos-
ses searching for them.
Reports of the depredations of the
fugitives, described by one guard as
including some of the "toughest" at
the prison, only added to the fear
of the dwellers in this plains and
mountain country near the Texas
border. Guards expected most of the
convicts to flee into the Wichita
mountains, from whose granite peaks
the prison town was named.
A youth was stabbed, another shot
in the shoulder, a 17-year-old girl
choked by two fugitives who attempt-
ed to attack her, and several other
persons were kidnaped and their cars
seized by the fleeing convicts, who
used a smuggled pistol to overpower
a sergeant and two guards Sunday
night.
Four of the 23 who escaped were
recaptured Monday soon after Mrs.
George A. Waters, warden, had re-
turned to the prison. She was absent
during the break. Mrs. Waters dis-
charged two guards for negligence
but did not make public their names.
Soviet Drops

Americans and Foreigners
Take Cuts Along with
Soviet Citizens
MOSCOW, Aug. 16.--()-Food ra-
tions alotted to American and other
foreign specialists stationed here in
the employ of the Soviet government
are cut in two by a recent order to
the store in which they buy their
supplies.
A general shortage of foodstuffs
has been felt by the natives for some
time but hitherto has not affected
foreigners in the government employ.
The new reduction, while it cuts the
amount of food available to foreign-
ers, leaves them fairly well supplied
with basic staples, except butter, and
still much better off than the average
Russian citizen. Prices remain un-
changed.
In case of a family of two, the
ration is not doubled but increased
by about one third.

A new instrument, the only one of
its kind in the world, has been in-
vented by the Badger astronomers,
in order to carry on their work, ac-
cording to Prof. Huffer. This instru-
ment, called a photo-electric vacuum
amplifier, was developed by Albert E.
Whitford, of the department, under
the direction of Prof. Huffer and
Frof. Joel Stebbins, director of the
opservatory.
This instrument consists of a cyl-
indrical vacuum chamber which can
be securely fastened to the lower end
of thes large -telescope in the observa-
tory. The chamber contains a photo-
electric cell, vh'ich' catch'es the light
of the stars and transforms it to 'an
electric current. Below the cell in the
chamber is a vacuum tube, which
