EARTH TREMORS SHAKE BOSTON FINANCEGENTER Severest Quake- in 174 Years Attributed to Crust Shift. Bu United Prefix BOSTON, Nov. 19.—Preliminary study of seismographic records by scientists indicated today that a strong earthquake which shook the northeastern part of the United States and eastern Canada Monday had its center either in a fault in the ocean bed just off the New Eng land coast, or in the valley of the St. Lawrence. The disturbance caused high buildings and towers to sway as much as three feet, broke windows and sent residents of many cities scurrying to the streets in alarm. Women working in offices in tall buildings here and in Augusta, Me., were reported to have become ill of dizziness caused by the undulations of the structures. Others fainted with fear. The most severe shock was felt in Boston about 3:35 p. m. and lasted for two minutes, and the tremors continued for nearly two hours. It came just 174 years to the day after the worst quake in New England’s history. Reports from Nova Scotia de scribed the quake as the most se vere in that island’s history. It oc curred during a heavy snowstorm. Several persons fainted at Halifax after rushing" to the streets from quivering buildings. Professor Kirtley F. Mather of Harvard university, where wireless towers swayed in an ar-c of three feet, expressed opinion that the earthquake was the result of a shift- THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES Convalesces mitfti '*■ - i Dr. David Starr Jordan, above, chancellor emeritus of Stanford university and world famous as an educator and peace advocate, is recovering from a serious illness.

Bearing cut this theory,' United Press dispatches from St. John’s, Newfoundland, told of a small tidal wave accompanying the shock on land. On the southern coast of the island, the water suddenly receded six feet and then rolled back to nor mal. Schooners lying at anchor were tossed about severely by the waves.

H. Heide, secretary of this world's largest agricultural show. Over 12,000 head of the choicest livestock, horses, cattle, sheep and swine which the world produces will be on view. Opening at the Chicago stockyards on Nov. 30, the first Saturday following Thanks giving, the exposition will be in progress until Dec. 7. Entries were received in the cat tle department in such numbers and representative of such quality that the management predicts with surety the largest and most Im pressive exhibit of cattle ever seen at the International. Sheep, swine, and horses main tain their high totals established at the 1923 exposition. An astounding growth, practically 100 per cent, in the number of farm boys and girls showing livestock will be witnessed in the coming event.

Similarly with the Herefords, herds will assemble at Chicago on this occasion from such separate points of the compass as Alberta, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and California, as well as many other states. Educational exhibits this year promise to be as fascinating as they are instructive. The United States Department of Agriculture will baa large exhibitor; so will the State Agricultural Experiment Sta tions, where farm-minded scientists each year are making new and im portant discoveries of practical significance to the man or woman ! living on the farm, which this ex j position serves to spotlight to pub i lie attention. Bolstered by the thousands of practical examples of perfection on all sides in the form of livestock and crops exhibits, these educa tional tableaus make the Interna tional more than a great show or a spectacle. It is in effect an “Eight Day University,” where the city man can gain knowledge while being entertained, and where the farm expert, however proficient he is, still can learn profitably from fellow experts.
