Damage Estimates
Still Unavailable
moth tidal waves-receding slowly
at nightfall-swamped the Louisi-
ana coast yesterday in the wake
of hurricane Audrey, leaving at
least 167 dead and hundreds in-
. Jured.
No overall damage estimates
were, available.
SMaj. Gen. Raymond Hufft, state
civil defense commander, said
there were 150 known dead in the
Cameron area alone and "it may
be a week to 10 days" before the
t final count is finished.
17 Others Dead
Seventeen other victims were
counted elsewhere.
An armada of helicopters and
fleets of boats roamed through the
flooded Cameron area south of
here in the southwest corner of
the Mate.
A 20-mile strip along the coast
is below sea level.
Cameron Parish county Sheriff
C?. B. Cartei predicted the death
toll would be at least 200.
Rescue teams brought out hun-
dreds from the town of Cameron
and ordered helicopters into the
Grand Cheniere and Black Bayou
sections of the parish during the
late afternoon.
. A civil defense spokesman here
said possibly 1,000 remained in
those communities, waiting on
rooftops and high spots without
food or water.
1,000 Safe
Red Cross sources said about
1,000 persons stayed in the parish
when Audrey struck Thursday.
Bill Mertena, an American
Press reporter, toured the Cam-
eron area by plane and helicop-
He said Cameron was about 90
per cent destroyed, with "at least
50 per cent of the buildings, de-
molished completely and many
others so badly damaged they
were a total loss."
"Only projecting foundations
and chimneys told where there
had been houses," Mertena said.
"The resort community of Holly
Beach no longer exists. It was
completely wiped off the map."
Bodies of dead cattle, horses
and wild animals littered stretch-
es of the marshlands.
Four hundred persons were res-
cued on one boat alone, the ma-
jority picked off rafts, trees, rem-
nants of rooftops.
Some were swimming or just
floating when spotted by rescuers.

UN Ruination
SAN FRANCISCO ()-Granting membership to Communistj
China would lead to the "destruction of the United Nations, Secretary

Dulles said.

'Peaceful' Nonaggression
"Soviet Russia, in 1933, had a
decade of peaceful nonaggressive
relations with neighboring coun-
tries, while Communist China's
past record is one of armed ag-
gression," he declared.
"The Soviet regime seemed to
want peace for the future. In the
case of Communist China, the sit-

'He Baia the Red Chinese am-

$1 Billion
More Added
To Defense
WASHINGTON (1P)-The Senate
Appropriations Committee heeded
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
pleas yesterday and voted to add
$971,504,000 to the defense budget
for the fiscal year starting Mon-
Acting unanimously, it recom-
mended atotal of $34,534,229,000
to run the Army, Navy and Air
Force the next 12 months.
A bill passed by the House con-
tains only $33,562,725,000, nearly a
billion dollars less.
Difference Cited
If the full Senate goes along
with the' increase, the difference
will have to be adjusted in a Sen-
ate-House confei ence.
While the Appropriations Com-
mittee was restoring hundreds of'
millons to the defense budget,
President Eisenhower himself cut
4561/ million dollars from his
budget request for military public
works, covered in a different bill.
The White House sent Congress
a revised request for $1,665,500,000
for this purpose.
Savings To Be Made
The proposed savings would be
made by deferring less urgent con-
struction projects until next year
or later.
President Eisenhower had asked
the House to restore $1,200,000,008
to the defense bill in what he
termed the interests of national
defense, but his plea went practi-
cally unheeded by the economy-
minded legislators when they
passed their version of the bill
May 29.
The Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee's figures are still about 11 ;
billion dollars below what the
President originally requested al-
though they are much closer to
the minimum he said he could get
along with.

-in ankle deep mud which sur-
rounded the premises they eager-
ly waited. One youngster came
equipped with fire helmet and
boots to assist the city's firemen
--who never showed up.
University maintenance men
had been there earlier to fill the
building with papers and assorted
garbage that was to help start the
blaze on its merry way.
The building, constructed of
wood and looking (with its brok-
en windows, leaky roof and dismal
appearance) much like a haunted
house out of a Hollywood who-
done-it, is situated on a small
mound overlooking a wooded and
sparcely populated section of West
Liberty, about two miles from the
main part of town.
Photographers from press ser-
vices were also present with full
motion picture equipment to re-
cord the fire. Setting their cam-
era tripods up in the deep mud
they waited for the wail of sirens
that would indicate the coming of
the fire fighters.
But only a lone car dispatched
by the University arrived to an-
nounce the change in plans.
The house still stands, still
filled with waste, and surrounded
by mud, its future still uncertain.
Perhaps some worldly philoso-
phers will look upon this event
