Chile Quake
One of Worlds
Great Disasters
Famine Now Adds to Horroi-s of
Stricken Country Where 30,000
Are Reported as Dead.
SANTIAGO. Chile. Jan. 2S (Copy
right 1939 by UD Starvation
threatened today the survivors ot
Tuesday night's earthquake which
took, it was indicated as more; and
more reports arrived from isolated
communities, more than 30.000 lives,
making it one of the worst ningle
disasters in the world's recorded his
tory. The first survivors reachin? the
outside world from the leveled town
of Sauquenes where 2,500 persons
were killed and 2.500 injured re
ported that hundreds of children
were starving and that the situation
was "desperate." Cauquenes' popu
lation was 10,000. Not one building
was left intact.
The United Press radio technician
Rodrigues Johnson returned to San
tiago from Concepcion, one of the
large towns hard hit by the quake,
and reported the food situation so
acute that Armando Cosani, United
Press staff correspondent, and his as
sistants, had had nothing to eat in
two days, and that only minute
amounts of drinking water were
Reports by private ar.d military
t;hort wave radio brought reports of
acute shortages, not only of food and
water for the survivors, but of es
sential medical materials with which
to treat the injured, and of serums
and vaccines to fight the danger of
epidemic. Thousands of bodies still
remained under the debris of ruined
buildings. A hot summer sun has
tened natural decomposition, adding
immeasurably to the threat of epi
demic. The stench pervaded every
where. The government ordered all sur
vivors evacuated from the ruined
cities and towns of south central
Chile as quickly as possible and con
centrated on repairing highways and
railroads so as to bring about the
evacuation as quickly as possible. A
constant stream of planes and trucks
were moving out of here, loaded with
fcod. water, and medical supplies.
The entire region was under..strict
military law and drastic orders were
issued to deal with every phase of
the emergency. Looters were
rummarily shot. Food supplies were
expropriated for government distri
bution. Wei's and other sources of
fresh water were taken over by
troops. Trocps were digging new
President Pedro Aquirre reached
Valparaiso last night on his tour
of the region and ordered troops to
commandeer the automobiles of
sight-seers who had rushed into the
area. He announced that any for
eigner who exploited the situation
by raising prices of prime necesdties,
would be expelled and that any
Chilean guilty of the same offense
would be severely punished.
Aquirre was landed at Valparaiso
by the destroyer Serrano. Exhaust
ed from his tour he went at once
to the summer place and after a few
hours sleep, he will drive here where
the cabinet planned to stay in con
tinuous pession through today and
"I thought at first that news of
the catastrophe had been exagger
ated." he said. "I did not attach the
great importance to it which the
disaster really has."
He outlined what he had seen,
adding: "The crimes usually seen in
such catastrophes are not seen. On
the other hand there are acts which
honor us as where 15 prisoners es
saped from a ruined jail but eight
returned to seek bodies in the ruins.
In Talcahuano, the fishermen gave
their catches free to the people."

Father Flanagan
Condemns System
of Handling Boys
Speaking at Presbyterian Banquet,
Head of Boys Town Tells
. of Rehabilitating-.
LINCOLN, Jan. 26 (UP) Father
E. J. Flanagan, who founded Boys
Town, last night condemned the
present system of dealing with de
linquent boys as "rotten to the core"
at a Father and Son banquet at West
minster Presbyterian church here.
Father Flanagan said one-tenth
of the present cost of crime, if used
constructively along the line of the
Boys Town project, would solve the
problem of rehabilitating so-called
delinquent boys'. He pointed out that
citizens do not flinch at paying the
16 billion dollar annual crime bill
and do nothing to establish a system
of prevention.
The Boys Town founder favored a
system built along the lines of a CCC
camp, where offending youths could
have an opportunity to express them
selves. He said they would not be
prisoners under this setup and could
earn their way back to respectability.
He said the system at Boys Town
wasn't ideal, but said officials were
trying to get at the heart of the
trouble for each boy. Father Flana
gan flayed parents for taking their
responsibilities too lightly, adding
that "the unspoiled child was born
and loaned by God for training. Par
ents have the responsibility of bring
ing them up."

Women's Clubs
to Aid Planting
Shelter Belt
Will Joia Forestry Service in Mak

for More Tree.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb.. Jan. 28
(Special) The Nebraska Federation
of Women's clubs are planning a
tree planting and beautification pro
jiram for the rural Bchool grounds of
(he area, according' to Mia. S. A.
Lutgen of Wayne, Nebraska, presi
dent of the third district. Shade
trees, shrubs, vines, and hardy flow
ers plus a few demonstration tree
windbreaks will be planted.
The program, which is getting un
der way this spring was originally
conceived by Mrs. Lutgen and it is
being considered as a state-wide
project by Mrs. Walter Kie:hel, presi
dent of the state federation. It is
hoped that the showing this year
will arouse interest enough to carry
the work to completion in years to
come, thus removing Nebraska from
the list of states in the Great Plains
where more than ninety per cent of
the 29.000 rural schools are com
pletely at the mercy of the continu
ous winds which frequently whip up
into blizzards in winter and sand
storms in spring and fall.
State Superintendent C. W. Tay
lor, A. L. Burnham, executive sec
retary of the Nebraska Teachers"
association, district presidents of the
Teachers' association, county super
intendents, and niany civic organiz
ations are cooperating with the Fed-
oration of Women's clubs. The aid
of the forest service of the U. S. de
partment of agriculture has been
enlisted to help get the work off to
h good start, and this spring the
forest service will assist by planting
wo demonstration windbreaks in
Antelope, Wayne, Cedar, Madison,
Pierce, Boone, Knox, Colfax, Platte,
Nance, and Stanton counties in ad
dition to the beautification or land
scape plantings made by the Women's
clubs. These wirdbreaks will comsist
of a planting around the school yard
of the same general type of the field
shelterbelts which the forest service
j regularly plants on farms.
I In charge of the work in each
county will be a committee consist
ing of the president and past presi
dent of the county federation, the
c unty conservation chairman, and
ihe county superintendent, with a
Icrcst service officer as adviser. The
county committees will determine
the schools where planting is to
be done, complete agreements for
planting and'furnish a design of the
plantings, and arrange for soil
preparation of the area to be planted,
for excluding livestock from the area
planted, and for the cultivation and
care of the plants.
Insofar as practicable, it is said,
school children will plant the trees,
shrubs, vines, and flowers and care
fcr them. In this way the youngsters
will gain a working knowledge of
the principles of plant culture of
the? plains which in turn can be ap
plied to their homes. In addition, it
is pointed out, the plantations will
be valuable textbooks for the chil
dren in the study of trees and flow
ers in respect to their value in the
Plains States, as well as showing
patrons of the school what can be
