part of a day of race rioting.
Official figures on the niimbeP of dead arc not obtainable
because of the chaos antl disorder that have accompanied
the riots antl the lack of time by relief workers lo keep an
accurate count of casualties. They are unofficially placed
at 100 -00 negroes and 10 whites.
"We have the situation well under control," Adjutant Gen
eral I tarred statetl at 8:.'?0 o'clock. "Wo do not anticipate
any further rioting, although nothing has been overlooked
as a precaution against its recurrence. With Tulsa under
