Flood Victims' Needs Appallingly Great DEVASTATION OF PUEBLO PROVES AS BAD AS AT FIRST ESTIMATED. The Denver committee on the re habilitation of Colorado Hood suffer, era during the pa d week, has not been marking time but has lieen consider ing ways and means to l»est serve their co-religionists of the devastated areas. To that end tjiey felt it de sirable to receive first httad informa tion as to the needs of the suffer ers. Pueblo having had the greatest losses was first considered. Last week, Mr. George A. Levy visited Pueblo, at the request of the Denver committee, to make a survey of the devastated district and to make u report on conditions found and the necessity for raising a fund to aid Jewish business men in rehabilitat ing themselves. Mr. Levy found conditions to lie so had that they defy all description. Every Jewish business had suffered heavy losses. Rome had lost every earthly possession. Rome had lost businesses and homes. Rome had lost their business and properties. No one entirely escaped the tragedy. The only redeeming feature of the unhappy situation was the wonderful optimism of our people. There was no real suffering at the time, but how soon there may lie no one knows. Mr. Levy believes there is urgent need for for a drive to raise a liberal fund to loan, without interest, to those of our people needing aid in re habilitating themselves. These loans are to tie returned to the Denver committee whenever those aided are able to repay. Our people do not want charity, states Aft-. Levy, but they do want and do expect help. This help is not only intended to purchase new stocks of merchandise, but to help rebuild their stores, buildings and obtain fix tures and other equipment with which to do business. - All the Jewish people of Pueblo thoroly understand and appreciate what is in the min'd of the Denver committee and are a unit In tlielr ap proval, and happy in the hope that something constructive is to he done for them. Mr. Levy In his recommendations also outlined a plan of organisation to properly care for the safe and fair distribution of the funds to lie raised. Mr. L, tJ t ‘ Guggenheim tWt«l Pu eblo this aWk toglve'ati'added report to the committee which was presented at its meeting late Wednesday after noon. The committee has established liermaneiit headquarters at 503 Rail road building. POST GRADUATE PLAY.

The auto-park camp which the Santa Barbara chamber of commerce owns and places at the disposal of its motoring guests is only one of many such open-air hotels now scat tered over the length and breadth of our country.
