The storm hit much of the midwest, leaving at least nine dead and thousands of persons stranded for hours. Tornadoes killed three in Arkansas, rigors of snow shoveling caused two deaths in Iowa, one person died in Michigan in a highway acci- dent resulting from poor visi- bility and a pulp cutter died in his Michigan cabin of ex- aosure. An Ohio man was blown off his second story porch and died. A Texas fire fighter died battling a prairie fire that burned thousands of acres of range and timber land. Moro than a score were injured. Trains Stalled Well-practiced highway and street department crews, got their equipment onto the streets and roads Saturday evening and by this morning had things pretty well in shape. In Appleton, 98 per cent of the streets were passable, and most state roads and county trunks were opened in the county. Highway travel is hazardous. Many town roads still are blocked. School buses were operating where roads were plowed. Some schools in the county are closed to- day.
