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.”
