who returned hero today from Al

Victor Emmanuel, said words could
itt describe the horrors, he had wit
nessed. The town had been wholly
levelled, he said, and residents who
escaped death were destitute.
"King Victor Emmanuel told me,"
said Mr. Marconi, "that,he.had vtaK
?xl tito scenes ot all earthquake dis
inters tn Italy ilnce ho was a child.
but that this surpassed all, including
Messina. The king said survivors or
\verzano were onl>\ between two a?id
three per cent- of. its population,
while In Messina one-third escaped."
Describing tho damage in Avaxzaoo
lr. Marconi said: i
"Avezsano has ceased to exist. In j
Messina some buildings give one the j
Impression that they are still Intact, j
their facades having survived tho j
shock. Not so with Avessano. No j
sall there remains erect. It Boomed j
M though tba town had been ground j
to powder by some gigantic machine." j
Tba people ot /??esca?o, siwifrfcag' j
to Mr. Marconi, have abandonad el- '
foru to take bodies tram the wreck
age and are trying only to rescue the
living who are prisoners ra tb? de
bris. The catastrophe was of such
vast proportions, Mr. Marconi added,
that ao organisation of men could
possibly have done anything to give
immediate relief. The noonie were
in despair at titers ftewarlesan csa to
render aid to those entombed.
During the first day of the disaster,
Br* Marconi continued, "the, rescuers
were so few they could not even at
tempt tc excavate pt places from
which cries of dlsireas came and
they planted coles her? and there at
ruth spots hoping to roturo later
with adequate forces ot men to re

ourse it is a great innovation; but as

vould-bc rescuers did arrive, how
ever, most of the voices wee stilled
.nd tho poles merely were markers

Mr. Marconi personally, heard coni
ng from under the ruins of the

if two pupils imploring aid. The1
iris said they were uninjured. They
pero protected from injury by a
dano under which they had fallen
