Thousands of spectators lined rocky Mann Hill beach Sunday after the creature rolled to Ihe shore on a high tide and touched off reports that the remains o! a sea serpent had been found. Andrew Konnerth, a research associate at Woods Hole Occan- ographic Institute, said alter in inspection today that the crea- ture was a basking shark, larg- est of the Atlantic sharks.

Four islands 60 miles south of Dacca in the Ganges Itivcr del- ta were lashed hardest by the 150-mile-an-hour winds and 20- foot waves from the Bay of Ben- gal- Officials said so many were dead or missing that rescue teams were counting survivors, not the dead. Some sources said there appeared to be almost no survivors on at least one of the islands. The 1961 census listed 1.4 mil- lion persons on the four Islands Ramagati, Charjabbar and other sources estimated the population was less than half that when (he storm hit. However, there had been a recent influx of workers for the rice harvest. The official death count to 32.871 Monday, but fatal- ity estimates grew hourly from scores o( reports. A former as- semblyman said local officials indicated had perished in Patuakhapi district to the west of the four islands. A utility offi- cial said thousands of farmers were swept into the sea when a tidal wave roared over the 15- foot dam which had reclaimed the land on which they were liv- ing. The area is a cyclone alley, with storms hitting almost ev- ery spring and fall and with huge tolls because of the lack of a warning system or of speedy transport for the masses of farmers and fishermen. In June 1965, perished in a cyclone there, and histo- rians say died in a storm and tidal waves in 1737. The greatest disaster recorded in history occurred in China's Ho- nan Province in 1837, when a flood took lives.
