Commenced by Th'outandt General
Conditions 8how Improvement.
Columbus, O., April 1. The number
jf recovered fiood victims in Colum
tfus still stands at C2. Sarvlvors of
the .flood xone and Coroner Benkert
maintain that many more bodies will
be found, particularly In the lowlands
south of Green Lawn and Mt. Calvary
cemeteries, both located on the West
Side. The search for bodies has been
centered in exploring the surface of
drifts. Many of the corpses recovered
have been found lodged against wire
fences and trees. ,
I North of the cemetery section are
located Glenwood, Centner, Cypress,
Rogers, Yale, Princeton and West
Prk avenues, 'which were swept
clean. The greatest logs' of life was In
C'fenwood, Centner and Rogers ave
nue. bAt the south end of Glenwood,
near Mound street, only three houses
are landing. Some homes are such
complete wrecks that they will have
to be torn away before It can be as
certained whether bodies are hidden
in them. '
'Numerous families are searching
for loved ones of whom they havo re
ceived no word since Ue flood. Their
worn and anxious faces present a piti
ful aspect as they file through the
morgues seeking their friends. '
"Farmers in the vicinity of Green
lawn and Mt. Calvary cemeteries and
the district south of Greenlawn ave
nue should be on the lookout for
bodies;" said Coroner Benkert. "Un
less the utmost aid-Is given us In this
matter ,the bodies will be In such x
terrible state of' decomposition before
we xet them that identification will
be almost impossible."
"There is another side to tills do-'i
mand for watchfulness," added the
coroner. "Unless the bodies are re
covered' promptly, an, epidemic of dis
ease vesting.. tue)tve pf hurWreds
The actual work; of rehabilitation of
the West Side Is under way. Wo.""".-
meir by the hundreds, Ohio State uni
versity students, members of "the
state militia, and property owners and
frlf-nds spent the day in the renova
tion of the, stricken districts.
Broad street Is the first to receive
concentrated attention from the work
ers placed by the city. Sidewalks and
streets are gradually being cleared of
the tons of debris left by the mad
waters. Residences and stores along
the main ' thoroughfare are being
transformed as much as possible from
mud-covered and water-swept build
ings to places which will be near-habitable
within as short time as possi
ble. 'Sections, as far west as the Balti
more & Ohio were able to secure wa
ter from the maln and plugs, which
have been repaired since Saturday.
Numerous residences and stores were
aejng tidded of mud by the use of city
water turned tnrough a hoso. Thank
ful for the admission to their section
of .gas and water, the residents are
now looking to the time within this
