Pueblo, Colo., June 6. "Tell the world we are going to
rebuild," was the message Pueblo business men gave to the
correspondent of the Associated Press today. "Send out
word over your wires that we are going to have another city."
Optimistic signs began to appear in the windows of stores
in the down town district.
"Are we down hearted, no. Let's go," read one sign in a
furniture store in which there has been several feet of water
up to this morning. Although in some instances, business
men lost all of their property from the flood waters, they are
not disheartened. They believe, they said, that Pueblo will
rise from the desolation to a new city of greater beauty and

Collection of Dead
and Relief Measures
For Rescued Speed
ed Up Today
Pueblo, Colo., June 6. After a
night of quiet,' Pueblo awoke this
morning to find the waters in the
lowlylng sections of the city reced
ed to below the five foot mark
and still going down. The flood
is at its lowest stage since its sud
den onslaught last Friday night.
Today the work of removing the
bodies from the drove and Pep
persauce bottoms districts began.
Colonel Pat Hamrock in charge of
the military announced the situa
tion, is well in hand and that
order is rapidly being brought out
Guards Patrol Area.
All during the night the devas
tated areas were patrolled by a
heavy guard of Colorado soldiery,
while the state rangers in auto
mobile and armed with riot guns,
patrolled the streets of the resi
dence districts. Every person
found on the streets after night
fall was stopped and questioned.
Some time after midnight re
ports of looting in the flooded
areas began to come in. The
guards brought between fifteen
and twenty men to "military head
quarters for investigation but in
almost every case it was found
that the supposed ghoul was mere
ly an ignorant, frightened Mexican
who, homeless and forlorn, did
not understand that shelter had
been provided for him. Only one
or two cases of actual looting have
been brought to ligst since the
military assumed control of the
situation, according to Captain H.
O. Nichols of Denver, adjutant,

Today there will arrive from

houses and other public buildings,
will be removed to the camp.
Also it is expected that during
the day there will arrive from
Dodge City, Kansas three army air
planes which will be used for ob
servation and scouting purposes.
Repotrs last night that the big D.
and R. G. bridge at Buttes, Colo
rado had gone out for the second
time are unverified.
Volunteers Turned Back
This morning on all roads lead
ing Into Pueblo mounted guards
have been posted to stop and turn
back all those except persons hav
ing official business in the city.
According to military officials and
officials of the Red Cross, hun
dreds of persons have come into
Pueblo and have volunteered for
relief work. The motives of these
volunteers are appreciated, of
ficials say, but they point that the
facilities of the city are being tax
ed Just to care for the suffering
homeless and arrangements for
quarters and rations for any more
volunteer workers positively can
not be made.
J. E. Morrhead, secretary to
Governor Shoup. who is In Pueblo

sage to odorado Springs asking
that a supply of anli-typhoid and
