Seventy-two disasters, with hun
dreds reported killed and Injured, and
more than 145,000 either homeless or
requiring assistance, called for emer
gency relief measures and the cx
pendltiv of $1,441,480.80 by the

The greatest toll of lifo was
taken by hurricane and tornado,
while the overflowing of rivers, tho
breaking of dams and torrential rains
drove the greatest number of people
from their homes. The property loss
was estimated at mor*? than $80,
The year's disasters reported In
i eluded twenty-six floods, nineteen tor
nadoes, fifteen fires, four epidemics,
two thcatro collapses, two shipwrecks
(one an airship), ond o bridge col

property loss, $6,000,000 and the high
mark of fatalities, 100, while the
flood In tho vicinity of Vicksburg and
Natchez, Miss., forced 81,000 persons
from their homes.
A National Calamity
In the Rod Cross disaster relief
records there will probably remain
for many years one calamity which
touched nearly every state with a
sense of horror and of loss. This was
the distressing collapse of the roof ;
of tho Knickerbocker Theatre In
Washington, D. C., resulting In nine
ty-six deaths and 125 persons Injured.
Situated In tho center of the beauti
ful Northwest residential section, this
motion picture theatre wss patronized
by many persons of prominence both
In the official and civil lifo of tho Na
tional Capital, whoso family and per
sonal connections radiated out over,
the entire country. The horror was
Intensified by a terrific snowstorm
which, though, It retarded, did not
block Red Cross relief.

the first disaster of Its kind to call for

In medical relief that was quick and
effective the smallpox'epldemlc In San
Domingo, which had a total of 22,000

tested the readiness of the Red Cross
for action, and the same can be said
of the San Domingo hurricane, which
killed 12 persons and reduced the
homes ef 182 persons to wreckage. A
flood In San Salvador, with a death
toll of 50 and 2,000 refugees, was also
effectually handled by ike local Chap
