Miss Townley Cited
Miss Townley is cited for "note
worthy public service." She remained
on duty at her switchboard from 11
0 clock In tho morning; until niglit
while a tropical hurricane rnged over
the little town of 800. More than half
of tho citizen nnd her two assistants
fled to places of safety.
Toward niglit it was reported .that
tho Brazos river near the mouth of
which Freeport is situated, was rising
rr.d overflowing the prairies.. The wind
was driving tho tide upstream and it
seemed likely the waters would in
vade the town. Miss Townley stuck to
her post, handling fifty-four toll calls
and r.lne hundred local calls. She left
lut once during the day for the pur
pose of procuring food and while o
doing was thrown to tho ground by
the wind and slightly Injured.
Her work lu giving service to the In
habitants of Freeport. helping them lo
cato relatives and assisting their prep

eicus other service. arising from the
trcmgeiny was beyond value.

.Ir.Hpch, then called a eeoond time and
tcld Miss Barry that her two children
were unconscious from the effect of
inhaling Illuminating- gas, and sho was
pfraid they would die before the doctor
ai rived.
Miss Barry knew of a lungmotor
closer to the Hornkohl address than
ir,y posted on the emergency list at
i he exchange and she dispatched It,
(vilh trained attendants at once. Its
arrival within two minutes, resulted in
the resuscitation of the two children
Although forty-five minutes work was
rccessary before they were pronounced
cut of danger.
Promptness Saves life
Mrs. Hornkohl hod been giving her
soiw Cleorgo fifteen months old and
Siegfried, Jr., three years old a bath.
She found it necessary to leave the
b-ithrooin for a short time nnd return
ed to find both boys overcome by
I'uinea from tho bathroom heater. One
ihild was lying in the tub, which was
half filled with water, while the other
bud collapsed on the floor.
