SCORES REPORTED MISSING
Morgue Attendants, Judging From the
Number of Inquiries, Are Convinced
That the Death List Will Be Greatly
Increased Work tof Relief Now On
a Definite Basis Cleaning Up the
Stricken West 8lde.
Columbus, O., April 2. With the
recovery of eight additional bodies,
the list of Columbus' known flood vic
tims has reached 70. All but three
have been identified; Most of the
Bodies found were in the lowlands be
tween Mt. Calvary and Grcenlawn
cemeteries and the territory Immedi
ately south. This section received the
bodies from Ulenwood, Centner, Rog
ers and Central avenues, which felt
the full force of the West Side flood.
The district to the Bouth is still
partly covered with water from one,
to two feet deep or with a con of
slimy mud the bhiiio depth. None of
the drift has been 'removed. When
the water recedes, allowing searchers
to remove the mud and debris, It Is
expected that additional corpses will
be given up. -
Prom the number of Inquiries at
the morgue for' missing ones, attend
ants are convinced that'the death list
will be greatly Increased. Scores of
persons from the flooded zono visit
the West Town street morgue dally to
leave descriptions of missing 'rela
tives and frlouds, nnd ask that they be
notiiled if bodies answering such de
scriptions are brought In. Members
of families, some of whose bodies
have been recovered, are missing.
Work 4f Relief.
After n trip of Investigation Into the
needs of the flooded district of the
West Sfde, tho general relief commit-'
tee divided the; territory Into sections
Identical with board of education dis
tricts for the distribution of relief, At
each . school Is a superintendent in
charge of tho distributions to the resi
dents of that district. Residents liv
ing In one district can not obtain food,
clothing or supplies In another. The
object of the arrangement Is to pre
vent all duplication and to expend the
1200,000 .called for in the most effec
tive and economical manner.
Out-of-town relief, other than finan
cial, amounted to 90 carloads of pro
visions. The supply on hand on the
West Side was completely exhausted
last night. There will be enough on
hand this morning, however, to pro
vide for today.
Colored people of the city have
been active. In relief work for mem
bers of their race. The I. O. O. P. hall,
Garileld avenue and Long street, has
been operated as a relief station for
the last week, and hundreds of refu
gees are being cared for.
