Quake Victims Attempt Return To Normal Life Refugees in Long Beach, Compton, Watts Make Way to Homes By United Press Southern California earthquake victims turned asid© the terror of recurrent settling shocks and a threatened pneumonia epidemic today in a determined drive to bring the stricken region back to normalcy. Money from reopened banks and emergency funds voted by the Btate legislature eased the financial situation in a dozen cities and towns where wrecking ! crews were clearing the debris from last Friday’s major earthquake and making way for new , buildings. Refuges Return Home Thousands of refugees in Long Beach, Compton, Watts and other t temblor-torn cities joined slowly i in a migration from parks, golf courses and vacant lots back to their own homes. Thorough engineering inspections of every dwelling convinced most of them that the homes approved by experts were safe. Sci- S. C. Buildings Declared Safe by Engineer Sims All buildings at S. C. ivere declared to be in excellent condition and perfectly safe, in a report made yesterday by Charles E. Sims, university engineer. Only minor damage, chiefly to chimneys and plaster, were reported as a result of the quake. Some of the chimneys were removed Monday and guards were posted at the rear of the Administration building where ths furnace flue, although cracked, is resting securely except at time of temblors. The complete report follows: A careful inspection of all * portion of the tower at the Ad Students Will Meet Team at Station Today Coach Barry. Nemer To Talk in Bovard; Gough Also Featured campus buildings left no doubt in our minds as to their safety. All exits and flre escapes were found in proper condition. Plaster was cracked in most of the buildings and chimneys broken off at the roof line. Some chimneys were removed Monday. Guards are posted at the rear of the Administration building where the top section of the furnace flue rests securely except at time of quakes. Some damage was done to the upper ministration building. Most of the buildings are modern of Class A construction, hence the university is fortunately able to report but little damage done. Even Old College suffered but little loss of plaster and is entirely safe structurally. Mudd Memorial hall and tbe Doheny Jr. Memorial library show no damage at ail. Charles E.

Woman Throivs Gold Pieces In S. F. Bay SAN FRANCISCO, March 14. —(UP*—A mystery woman who threw gold coins by the handful into San Francisco bay was reported to ferry officials tonight by John Luprin. second officer of the Ferry Lake Tahoe. Luprin said the woman got out of her expensive automobile and walked to the rail, carrying a tobacco can. The lid fell off and some gold coins fell to the deck. Luprin retrieved them. "I’m going to throw them into the bay," he said she told him. “Nobody has any more use for money. I’m getting rid ! it. I’ve made several trips already, and I’ll be back.’* She told him there was $2,-000 in gold in the can. Luprin followed her to the rail, still believing she was not serious. She hurled the can Into the bay. Roosevelt Puts Final Touch on Relief Program WASHINGTON. March 14.—(EE) —President Roosevelt tonight put the finishing touches on the farm and unemployment relief programs he is expected to presnt to congress this week. In a cabinet meeting that lasted for nearly three hours the two subjects, which are high on the agenda of his “new deal" schedule, were overhauled along with latest developments in the banking situation. Well-informed White House sources believed the farm program would be the first of the two submitted. It le no secret that the president is desirous of having legislation enacted along those lines before spring planting so a definite start can be made toward price stabilization and general economic recovery ln the industry. What form his recommendations would take, however, no one was prepared to say. that the possibility of added dan-Capt.

McKay, coach of forenslcs at. Long Beach Polytechnic, high school; and Charles A. Sunderlin, Los Angeles attorney Martyn Agens and Trevor Hawkins will meet the Ucla affirmative team Friday evening at 8 o’clock in Royce hall on the Bruin campus in Westwood. Phi Beta To Hold Speech Contest Lehavah Club To Meet Tomorrow There will be a meeting of the , Lehavah club, tomorrow evening at 7:30 o'clock at the home of Dr. Knopf, 4850 Angelus Vista boulevard. Reservations must be made immediately at Dr. Bruce Baxter’s office or in the Biblical Literature office. All members and others Interested are cordially invited by Dr. Knopf. Dr. Campbell of St. Paul’s Episcopal church will be the speaker. Before selecting a woman to represent S.C. at the oratorical contest of the Women’s Intercollegiate forensic league of Southern California, to be held in April at Redlands university, a preliminary contest is being sponsored by Phi Beta, national honorary music and dramatic fraternity. Finals will be held Friday, April 7. Women who are interested in entering this contest will meet today at 2:15 p.m. in room 326, Student Union.

The winner will als* be awarded a plaque by Phi Beta. mote. Pneumonia Breaks Out The plight, too, of 16 pneumonia victims who contracted the affliction from sleeping on damp i ground was a compelling factor in diminishing the crowds of I stay-outs. The first outbreak of • pneumonia Monday night was dealt with summarily by health J authorities, and yesterday only a : few' cases of influenza and severe colds were added. At least six new tremors shook the Los Angeles - metropolitan area yesterday. Like their predecessors, the jolts sent tottering walls crashing in districts where Friday’s quake claimed some 129 lives, injured hundreds more and caused $60,000,000 damage. Six Tremors The first tremor was at 4:21 a.m., the second an hour and nine minutes later, the third at 11:06 a.m., and the fourth at 2:40 p.m. A brief, jolting quake of moderate intensity shook the city a 6:05 p.m. Another followed at 9:45. Appalling damage to Long Beach schools, where four of five major plants were reduced to varying stages of ruin, brought action from the Long Beach Taxpayers’ league today in opening an inquiry to “learn the truth” about school construction. Meeting Called George W. Moyle, president of the league, called a meeting for Thursday night to consider bringing suits which would open the board of education’s books for inspection. Moyle claimed $2,000,-000 damage was done to schools built at appioximately the same time as many major downtown buildings which escaped the quake virtually unharmed. “The fact that the quake provi-(Continued on Page Four) Scoring its second straight victory'. the S.C. women's debate squad defeated the University of Redlands 3-0 yesterday afternoon in the Women’s Residence hall.

The dance will not be a costume affair. Glendale J.C.; and Mr. Guy Moore, Manual Arts high. C. Graduate School Plans Reception Dr. Tully C. Knoles of the College of the Pacific will be the featured speaker at the reception Friday afternoon in the President’s suite, Hoose hall, in honor of the Associated Graduate students. The reception itself will be held from 2:15 to 3:15 o'clock. Dr. Knoles will follow with an address, “America’s Way Out,” in 206 Hoose hall. In the receiving line will be President Rufus B. von KlelnSmid, Dean Rockwell Hunt, and Dean Mary Sinclair Crawford, from the faculty. Walter Barrager, president of the Graduate school, and Genevieve Hale, vice-president, will also perform in this capacity. Both the reception and the addresses by Dr. Knoles are open to all graduate students and members of the faculty. Bids sold rapidly yesterday after the banks opened and many members of the four service organize tlons had sold their complete allotment. This gave favorable Indication that the dance will be a sell-out as it was last year. Featuring the music and entertainment of Sherwood Beasley and his Manhattan Music, along with plenty of refreshments in the way of doughnuts and cider, the Panic Parade will rate as the most colorful social affair of the spring semester. Plans are being made for novel decorations for the Breakfast club, where the dance is to be held. Blackstonians Will Vote on Members Despite the fact that Troy’s champion basketball team lost the Pacific coast title in a thrilling playoff with Oregon State college last week-end, Southern California will turn out en masse this morning to honor the players with a station rally, triumphant parade, and rousing rally in Bovard auditorium. Classes will not be excused but events have been timed so that the campus rally will take place at 9:55 o’clock.

March 14.—(UP) —The senate today authorized federal reserve banks to make loans to state banks and trust companies for one year or until President Roosevelt suspends this practice by proclamation. The bill extending the emei» gency banking laws to embrace these Institutions was sponsored by senate majority leader Joseph T. Robinson. It was designed to meet criticism that the new bank bill rushed through congress last week wa« unfair to state banks. Under the measure any stato bank or trust company may ol* tain a loan upon the certiflca-tion of state banking authorities that it Is in sound condition. An amendment was adopted to allow the reconstruction finance corporation and federal reserve banks to make loans to conservators named under the new bank law "to aid the conservator In administering the affairs of the bank to which he was appointed.’* Anthropologists To Hold Meeting!
