Late todava field telephone was

i"phone company's wire five
viles from here, and the Associ-
ated Press through the San Angelo
Standard, opened, up the first di
rect communication.' The first
message was .from Assistant Ad
jutant General Nichols who asked
whether rangers or national
guardsmen were needed. General
Nichols -said he would be guided
by Associated Press reports of the
disaster in determining whether to
move state troops.
The; lobby of the First State
bank, all of the windows of which
were blown out. was converted In
to a morgue. The Edwards County
Wool and Mohair company's
building became a temporary hos
pital. Many injured were taken
to Camp Wood, 42 miles away,
where a movie theater was con
verted into a hospital.
Witness Tells Story
Frank Rahmstorf, San Antonio,
eye witness to the destructive
sweep of the tornado, reached
Camp Wood today with a vivid ac
count of the disaster.
"I was driving to Rock Springs
from Junction," he said. "Miles
before I reached Rock Springs 1
saw the sinster funnel-shaped
cloud racing ahead of me. There
was a greenish yellow tinge to the
main cloud, set in a background
of inky blackness.- I feared trouble.
"When I got into Rock Springs
the cloud was hanging just above
the city, not a breath of air stir
ring. At 7:29 it broke. Just a
swish and a roar, then havoc and
"The cloud dipped and seemed
to grasp the city. For six min
utes it raged and roared. I had
taken refuge in the Valentine
hotel. A number ofther people
also were there.
"They dashed to the concrete
annex. Bat I was unable to follow
them .before the entire roof col
lapsed. Fortunately I managed
to seek refuge under some heavy
timbers and escaped unhurt.
"But the sight when I reached
the streets was one of indescrib
able horror. From my vantage
point under the hotel roof I had
seen trees, human beings, houses
and larger buildings hured about
like so much chaff. Scantlings
were lifted and driven through
the bodies of victims who sought
to escape the storm's furyr The
sidewalks literally ran blood. It
resembled more a battlefield in
France than a peaceful little west
