Cleveland, O. Loss ot life In Sat
urduy's tornado which wrecked a large
portion of Lorain and parts of San

as great as first reports indicated, but
rechecking ot casualties showed that
more loan 100 persons lost their lives

where the tornado tore down a quarter
of the city, organized rescue work
went forward smoothly and Btate
troops kept order among the inhabi
fonts, hundreds of whom were thrown
out ot their homes and hud to be shell
ered in tents and with friends.
The great loss of life at Lorain took
place in the State theater, a four
story building, which partly collapsed
and crushed many of the spectator
at a matinee movie show. As soon as1
rescue work was organized a survey ot
the situation led to the deduction thai
many scores had been killed, for build
ingB had been whipped down over the
heads of several fairly large assemb
lages. At a bathing beach house the
structure was torn to pieces and It ,.
announced that dozens had lost their
lives at this place.
Investigation Sunday when light per
mitted a search of the ruins' showed
that probably everyone at the beach
had escaped with his life. The fact
that the tornado struck both Sandusky
and I., rain w.hlle factories were
emptied on account ot Saturday after
noon holiday probably reduced the
death toll by hundreds, fur a number
of manufacturing plants were torn
