SINGAPORE, June 21, via Tokio,
August 2 (Corespondence of the
Associated Press) The awful scenes
which prevailed when the volcano of
Kalut in Java burst into erution on
May 20, destroyed 26 villages and
caused a loss of life estimated by
some at 50,000, are vividly described
by Miss E. W. Crancn who Iias ar
rived here from Soui-abaya.
A river of boiling mud and lava
which overwhelmed the village of
Blitar where Miss Cranen was staying
she says, was ten miles wide and four
feet deep.
The first symptoms of the coming
eruption, Mis3 Cranen said, N were
sounds like thunder and vivid flashes
in thes ky. Enormous boulders were
flung from the volcano into the low
lands around it for immense dis
tances. There was pitchy darkness
owing to a rain of ashes.
Then carne warning to the occuants
of the hotel at Blitar that the river of
larva and mud was aprpoaching. "We
were almost besidc ourselves as to
what to do to avoid a hideous end,"
she said. Twenty four of those stay
ing at the hotel cscaped death in the
boiling mud by fleeing aboard a
motor car driven by the wife
of the Assistant Resident Commis-
wiwr, .-.
According to Miss Cranen the river
hof mud ran for three hours and
property. It covered the railway
wrought fearful damage to life and
station, buried the locomotives and
cars and destroyed virtually every
house in Blitar, Wlingi and Srengat.
A Mr. Boekhont managed to rescuc
his wife and some of his children, but
owing to the velocity of the mud riv
er was unable to save two of his little !
oncs who perished before his eyes. j
One European, while in bed in his1
house, was carried away and deposit
ed miles distant.
A Sourabaya paper which placca
the total loss of life at 50,000 says
that 15 Europeans perished, and that
after the volcano subsided the arms
and legs of the victims were sccn
protruding through the mud ali over
Kediri district, in the vicinity of Kal
ut. Many thousands of pei-sons are
rcported missing. I

- COBLENZ, Aug. 2 The pian of
Gustav Noske, the German sccretaryj
for military affairs, to retain the
home guard throughout Germany, by
transferring them to the civil author
ities and calling them "locai police
reserves" is going into effect accord
ing to information reaching the Am
erican army of occupation. German
newspapers carry advertisements say
ing that recruits for the home guards
are no longer required to take oath
to defend their country against in
vasion. . '
An American army bulletin says
"this is the first confession that such
a pledge had been taken by the home
guards. It confirms the suspicion
that the home guards were intended
to be a great rescrve army and jus
tifics a former suspicion of home
guards under their new guise of
civil polied reserves."
