FLOOD SUFFERERS TO RECEIVE FOOD Rations for 2.»,<HH) Will Be Distributed In Natchez District; Relief Work Organized. Natchez, Miss., May 9.—With 7,000 persons already rationed in the flood areas of Concordia, Catahoula and Tensas parishes, all of 25,000 flood sufferers in this district will have been supplied with food by the end of the present week, W. P. Connell, chairman of the Executive Committee of the Louisiana State elief Committee, said after a series of conferences with workers and planters here today. Fifty thousand rations were ordered today for distribution at Vidalia and points along the river south of Vidalia, under direction of a committee headed by George Bullis of Vidalia. All ap peals in the territory extending from the west bank of the Mississippi river from llougere to Waterproof to the towns of Clayton and Frogmore must be sent to Mr. Bullis. Distribution Points. Points of distribution in this district will be Ferriday, where a barge al ready is stationed under direction of Maj. Frank Green of the Red Cross, Vidalia, L’Argent and points below Vidalia not yet decided upon. Frog more and Clayton will be supplied from Jonesville by barge. These points have not been cared for before, with the exception of Ferriday. ' Distribution of rations will be through the Red Cross. The National Guard of Louisiana will have charge of transportation of supplies. Distri bution will be made to the planters who will distribute rations to their negroes. people wm ue awoweu iu swj wi their homes where* it is possible to reach them with barges and other points of distribution. When this is impossible they must come to the camps to get Red Cross supplies. Camps have been and are being es tablished at Harrisonburg, Rhinehart and Sicily Island, in charge of the state and Red Cross. No more camps in this territory are contemplated at present. Mr. Connell and other members of the committee held hearings today on board the Wanderer II, which carried the committee from Baton Rouge to Natchez, D. . Weller, president of the Standard Oil Company of Louisiana, acting as host. A meeting also was held at the Natchez Chamber of Com merce with the Natchez Flood Relief Committee. ‘From all our investigations, we can find no one who actually is hun gry,” said Mr. Connell. “When hunger impends, people have gone to the camps, according to reports given us. They stay at home as long as possible to take care of their belongings. “The present outlook makes it seem that at least $300,000 will be needed to take care of the situation in Louisiana We are trying to take care of the sit uation during the emergency only and this estimate applies only to the emer gency. “We are adequately organized to handle the situation so long as the emergency exists.” Report of tlie Condition of BANK OF WILTON Wilton, Little River County, Ark., at tlie Close of Business May .'», 1922.
