New Bern, N. C.-An army of grimy
chimneys, standing as grim sentinels
amidst an area of smouldering ruins
which extends for half a mile from
the western boundary of the city to
the Neuse river, marked thd course of
New Bern's two million dollar lire, the
worst in the city's history.
When Interviewed, Mayor Clark

including the Roper Lumber company
mills, was in excess of $2,000.000.
The war devastated towns of Bel
gium and France hardly presented a
more pitiable spectacle of complete
destruction than that section of New
Bern which was swept by the fire
throughout the entire day.
Over an area of a mile or more in
length and from two to five blocks in
width nothing remains but row after
row of ghostly chimneys, standing as
vigils in the midst of charred tim

Not a single piece of framework

thing in the path of the terrific fire
was swept before it. It was a grims
and pathetic spectacle.
Scores of families were wandering
among the ruins looking for the site
of their former homes, trying to see
whether the fire had overlooked any
Women and children were crying
and men gazed at the ruins with
hopeless and sullen expressions upon
their faces. In several places the
charred timbers still burned and the
homeless people gathered about those,
seeking warmth from the cold which
was beginning to make itself felt. In
spite of the fact that both whites and
blacks had been informed that sleep

them, many apparently paid no heed;
they seemed too stunned to think of

away from them by the roaring,
crackling fire which spread terror over
the city for more than nine hours.
In one of the empty fertilizer ware
houses are huddled from two to three
hundred negro men, women and chil
dIren. Several of the women sit wvith
infants hugged tightly to their breasts.
Here andl there a child sleeps, but for
the most part everyone is widle-awake
and talking tn low tones of the great
toll exacted by the conflagrations.
Many of them have nothing left except
a few articles they managed to save
b)efore* the fire was upon01 them.
,Other fire victims are being housed
in somel of the churches and halls of
the community. The wvhites, for the
most part, have been taken into the
homes of their more fortunate neigh
