NO 342 TORNADOES' DEATH TOLL FOUR SOUTHERN STATES Approximately Correct Figures Have Been Collected Tlie Number of Victims is 3."() While Many Hundreds are Painfully or Seriously Injured. Forty-Six Towns Were Wrecked or Damaged. New Orleans. April 26. The totals of death, misery and ruin caused in four soul hern states by Friduj's tor nartrr came to hand today in an ap proximately correct form. They are: Killed. 350; injured painfully or ser iously, ljm't; homeless, several thou sand. Towns reported seriously wrecked. 46; habitations and business houses practically in complete luins in these towns, about 2, "'. These fig ures do not include the wrecking of plantations and farms, scores of which were struck and damaged. The num ber of dead may never be known ac curately for the reason that about 300 of them were negroes and they were buried in many communities without lareful records being made of num bers. By following the wreckaee of towns tht- general direction of the tornado can be traced closely. Apparently the storm struck In three currents each describing the arc oZ a circle, travel ing toward the northeast. The first of these struck through northern Louis iana. Mississippi and Tennessee, be fore daylight on Friday morning. The second appeared farther south about 7 o'clock in Louisiana and Mississippi. This was apparently a portion of the storm which swept through Alabama and Georgia on Friday night and Sat urday morning. The third portion ap peared during Friday afternoon fur ther south than either of its prede cessors. This is the storm which de molished Amite. La., and Purvis. Miss., where the wreckage was the worst. Why the fatalities were so large was apparent today from a glance at the photographs which arrived here from many tortions of the tornado belt;' They all teii the same story. Whole blocks of ii.it were formerly lit tic residences tun! cabins Ut: sheared over the ground ii separate boards. 7f a huge lumber piie hart len rattored over these areas the number of boards unattached to anything else, could scarcely b-en greater i'nilor the mass of wrec kage many persons were bur ied, not one in a hundred escaping without some injury. The homes of the whites held together better than those of the negroes. Along with the accounts of suffering have come many recitals of many re markable experiences. Today has been one of relief measures throughout the wrecked district. The ruined towns have been visited by thousands of spectators, many of whom went with a few dollars in thefr pockets to dis tribute among the needy. The following is a list by states of forty-six towns repreesnting more or Irss damage: Louisiana Lucerne, Kenmore, La mourie. Richland. Amite, Essie, Pine, Angle.

The total number of dead and missing of the Gladiator's crew as a result of a collision between the American liner St. Paul and the British cruiser ot'f the Isle of Wight is twenty-tight. The total number of known deaths is five. Twenty-three are missing and six are suffering from severe injuries. The secretary of the admiralty ex presses a fear that there are eight others missing. Divers today searched a part of the sunken cruiser for bodies but were not successful in finding any. The oninion among shipping, men and naval officers appears to be unani mous that the accident was unavoid able.

Glendale was very much outclassed yesterday and did not play at all like was expected. Either a wrangle which occurred among themselves or stage fright when L. Quiros began steaming up. ended their chances of making good before the game had gone two rounds. Neither Johnson or Blanton had much control, though the substitution of the former helped matters some. But for an un fortunate error at third Quiros would have shut out the Beet Eaters. Con go was the receiver. Most interest centered in the sec ond game, which was called at 4 o'clock and proved a very entertain ing, lively contest for one hour. This expected clash of ancient rivals was st.-irted under auspicious beginnings. Mr. Shue escorted the Fraternal drill team of ladies who. bedecked with rib bons, insignias and banners, marched to the home plate and formed an arch way through which their heroes filed onto the field of battle. It would have been a sore disappointment had their proteges lost. But they didn't. How ever, they will have to thank their stars, for Millett's muffs in center and Cisney's bobbles at short which gave the Frats the long end of the score. The only earned earned run was made by the Orphans in the third. These two teams wore finely matched up. Hull had good speed and pitched a magnificent game for the first this spring. Hull was up against the bun gle, but Vermulen had timely support. He however got in one deep hole In the third, when the bases were full a couple of times, but fly balls and fouls saved the day. Harter caught a bril liant game as did Morris. Tebben nd Warner, new men in the line ups. were there with the goods when occasion called Firit inning. Vinson bkied to cen ter. Lewis sinrled, Tebben f'.ied to -holt, and Magoftin was out swond to first. Things' started with a vim. Warner drove oti tn Mtl!tt, who muffed, Rudolph struck out, Williams hit to Hull. Warner was cut off at third and Williams at second in a lightning double play. No runs. Second inning. Cisney was out sec ond to first. Harter fanned and Millett died short to first. Congo drove an other to Millett and it got away, Sul livan fanned, Morris hit clean for three bases and Congo scored: Vermuelen struck nut and Mitchell died second to first. Frats, one run. Third inning. Towers was hit by Pitcher, Hull missed three but arrived at first on the Joint mistakes of catch er and first sacker; Vinson two-based and Towers scored. Lewis drew a base on balls and the bags were pop ulous: Tebben singled and Hull reg istered. No one out. Magoffin flied to third, Cisney fouled to catcher and Harter flied to short. Byers singled, took second on Warner's sacrifice and third on Rudolph's ping at home, on which he was retired, catcher to first; Williams fanned. irphans. two runs. Fourth inning. Millett smote the Sullivan were both safe on Cisney's errors, Morris drove a hot one to Lewis in left, Vermuelen hit for two bases and scored both Congo and Sullivan. Mitchell went out third to first, and Byers short to first. Frats. two runs. Fiftli inning. Lewis struck out. Tebben drew a base on balls, took sec ond on a 'wild pitch stole third and scored the tying run later on Cis ney's fly to left; Magoffin in the in terim was safe on Surry's muff and Harter struck out. With the tie on. disaster tread fast on the Orphans' heels. Warner died short to first, Rudolph hit through Magoffin and stole second, was cut off at Congo drove a hard one to Millett, who didn't haul it in, and Williams scored: Sullivan drove a two-bagger to left and Congo scored, but Sully cut second and the ball was called back and he was put out. Frats, two nins. I Sixth Inning. Woefully brief. Mil lett sawed the air. Towers Touled to Morris and Hull ditto. Morris was safe on f'isnev's bungle. Vermuelen j fanned. Morris stole second.

Quiros struck out seven men in the ; first four innings and only thirteen men were up to bat. So there is not much of a story. The Beet Eaters scored in the fifth. Two were gone when Johnson grounded to third and was sa'e: Davis hit by pitcher gave him setoud and two more third base bobbins ittt-hlm to.lh platen - ark fanned and eo did Krkkson. They were easy in the sixth and got two on bases in seventh by an error at third and a safe hit but were given no chance to score. A review of this ef fort shows Glendale only got 'two safe hits off Quiros and that he struck out twelve in seven sessions. For" the Maroons Grijalva. first up, singled and scored on Jose's single, a stolen base and pitcher's error. In the second Congo was hit, stole second and third and scored on an error at third. Frank singled, stole second, took third on an error at third and scored on Grijalva's single. In the fourth the Maroons saw home again on a single by Sc itt and an error at first. A base on balls to Joe. a single and stolen base by Scott, and a passed ball let home two more tallies. In the sixth though they were not very anxious, two singles and an error and one man hit by pitcher gave the Maroons three (Continued on page 2.) Santa Barbara, April 2$.

Today, rest and too much merrymaking it is believed is going to militate against a strict main tenance of the splendid efficiency gained by careful training and the long cruise around South America. Al- J ready men are beginning to think more of the pleasure program at the next port of call, according to the officers than to their routine duties abroad. Thirty-six hundred sailors and ma rines came ashore today but found little to amuse them. The fighting force on the vessels outnumbers by several thousand the entire population of Santa Barbara. Rear Admirals Thomas, Sperry and Emory in full dress uniform .accompanied by their staffs came ashore this morning and officially returned the call of welcome paid to them yesterday by Mayor Boeseke, Rear Admiral McCalla and other members of the local committee. Aboard the Mississippi careful in quiry was in progress to determine the extent of the damage done yester day when the high pressure cylinder head of the port engine cracked and blew out. It is feared that It will be sometime before'' the damaged parts can be replaced. Fire at the plant of the Newport News Ship Building ocm pany. where the Missouri was con structed, destroyed some of the detail ed plans of the engines, a year and a half ago, and it is said that this will result in a long delay. In the mean time the disabled cylinder will be iul out ot the triple expansion engine. wrr1h WiU La compounded u a two cylinder basis. It is possible" that the MfSsourl will be left at Mare Island while the other ships go to Puget Sound in the latter part of May. Rear Admiral Evans is expected to rejoin the ships at Monterey on -Friday. The proposed call at Port Har ford has been cut off the itinerary and instead of leaving here on Wed nesday the ships will not sail until Thursday morning. . Details of the entry into San Francisco harbor and the maneuvers of the ships prior to and at the naval review of May S were announced on board the Connect icut today. The Atlantic fleet will sail through the Golden Gate alone, but the ships of the Pacific fleet will join them at Angel Island, just within the harbor entrance, and the combined force of forty-six battleships, cruisers, torpedo boat destroyers and auxiliaries will parade through the bay to the re viewing anchorage. The ships will an chor in four long columns, holding to ward Goat Island and extending south in the bay from a point off Market street and the ferry terminal buildings past Mission Rock on to Portrera Point.
