D. 2, Box 237 acid and one for caustic soda. The Long Beach Cal. Soda storage tank had sunk Down to april 1, 1933 editor Delta Herald and times dear sir r you have no doubt read All Thedac ounts of the earthquake that hit Long Beach and Vicinity on but i thought it might be of interest to you to have an account of it All from some one that was in the midst of it. I while i have been in California Over four years i have up until March 10, experienced several Small of moderate intensity but they wire nothing compared to the one that i went through three weeks ago yester Day t my wife baby and myself were just placing our order for dinner Iolj a cafe at american and Anaheim streets in downtown Long Beach when the major Shock struck. My wife jumped up and ran out the door just in. Time to miss the plate Glass window theft fell out. I had to grab our by that time the table was jumping around so and the floor was weaving so much that it was All Over Lefoi i could get my balance to move. Tie buildings were still falling Down that is the bricks from the fire Walls and the towers of radio station were still vibrating. In an Alley across the Street where we were standing an automobile was almost completely covered with bricks but the two peo ple that were in it got out without a scratch. I the quake struck at exactly p. M. But at you could not be the Sun for the dust in the air. To make things worse the Power was off and the people were driving up Ana Down the streets like mad. The major Ity of them did not know what theft were doing while some of them Rushing the injured to the hospitals we got in our car and ? Long Beach to go Home to see what damage was done but it took us until to get there where ordinarily it would have Only taken me five min utes. The traffic was so heavy and the debris from All the buildings in some places Only allowed one car at a time. When we finally got Home i went into the House and found almost All our dishes broken. Our floor lamps were on the floor and most of our furniture was moved about a foot to the North. We found All our neighbors in a vacant lot with blankets and food and you could easily see that no one in tended to sleep in the House that Nite. While we were standing talking to them we had several Small shocks that did not feel so Good As most everyone did not know what to expect next. About this time my father and pulled up to see if we were still alive and to Tell us that they could not locate my brother and his wife As none of us knew where they had intended to go that night. We then decided to go out to my Mother s House in Hopes that they would come out there but when we got out there and found out that they had not been there we began to get worried. But there was no use in looking for them As by this time the Navy had taken Over Long Beach and would not let anyone Back into town unless they had a pass so we decided to just wait and Hope for the Best. They came in the next Day All o. K. My father and i went Over to the Plant to see what damage had been done to it but we had to Detour As several water Mains had broken and the streets were flooded. When we pulled into the Plant we sure had a Surprise As we have three Gal Lon storage tanks two for sulphuric i the ground forcing the steel supports Twenty feet into the ground and All the lines had broken All swing the caustic and acid to mix and you could hardly see anything for steam i could t help but think How Lucky i was As at three o clock that Day i had sat on top of the caustic tank and watched it fill up. In those three tanks alone we lost 572 tons of acid and Gallons of caustic with a Market value of around most of our equipment in the acid Plant was shifted and most of the lines broken while in the caustic Plant most of the damage was in broken pipe lines. In the Shell Oil refinery across the Street the Dubbs stills had blown up causing quite a fire. Our damage Here in the Plant amounts to about but we Are rebuilding just the same. In Long Beach most of the damage to buildings was confined to Brick buildings of poor construction and to Frame houses with poor foundations. None of our Large buildings fell while nearly All the schools were completely destroyed. If the quake had struck three hours earlier there would have been thousands of children killed. At the present time they Are investigating All the schools and also All the contractors that put them up As it is Plain to see were not built As they should be. Of the fifty eight listed dead in Long Beach Only three were killed inside buildings while the remainder were killed fleeing from their Homes and stores. In the Stockwell building in Compton alone there were fourteen persons killed. A Friend of mine sent us some newspapers from Wilmington Del., and it sure is funny How the Eastern papers have played up this quake. I noticed in one article that it said my the streets in a Daze. I have yet to see anything like that As everyone has been doing their part and every thing was very Well organized by saturday morning. But i must admit that it is All nerve racking because since the major quake we have had around seven Hundred shocks that could be Felt and about fifteen Hun dred that instruments have recorded. Most of these reoccurring shocks come at night and a person does not know whether they Are bad ones or not until they Are All Over. The last one i have Felt was at eleven o clock last night. There has been wild predictions of another quake that be As bad As the first one taut no one seems to much thought to it. Long Beach is Back to Normal now and is rebuilding a bigger and better City. All buildings have to be of the class a Type and they Are As near quake proof As they can be. Long Beach is following the example of san Francisco and Santa Barbara. Note i wish to Correct that state ment about the last Shock we Felt we just had one at in closing this account i want to say that it is not at All a pleasant sensation to feel old Mother Earth moving under your feet and no mat Ter How Brave you Are when you feel it hit you get a funny feeling in the pit of your stomach but it Only lasts a Short while until the next one hits. Scientists claim that we will have these Small shocks for about three months. I am hoping you will publish this so that All my old friends Back there will know that i came out All right and also that they will not think that Long Beach is wiped off the map As some of the accounts would make you think. The fluting of the flutes Constitution flutes the Gay lad with his shining tin flute. Just multiply that by one Hundred and you la begin to realize what Kunter Wilder has done to Delta by equipping an army of school children with these novel music makers. Pick up your Pencil and try to write in on you As some embryo musician tries to play Amer try to get a Little Nap and another one will pipe in with As he at tempts to relate the Story of Yankee and so the fluting of the flautist and his Little flute is abroad in the land. There was a time when the Small boy filled the air with less produced on his Home made Chestnut whistle. The Ris ing of the sap in the springtime was the signal Tor a sudden invasion of the Forest where the Youthful whistle manufacturer and Amateur musician sought out the nicest straightest and smoothest Chestnut Sticks he could find. These were made into whistles. Some were very crude affairs while others showed remarkable ingenuity and painstaking Effort. That they did not Rise to the level of the scientifically designed tin flute of modern times did not materially effect the Zeal and enthusiasm of the boys so Long As they possessed noise making possibilities. Blight blasted the Chestnut Groves and put a. Crimp in this springtime activity of Rural youngsters but the making of tin flutes is still with As is the of an untiring lad near my window at this moment. N. Me add that fifty of these tin Hooters have been turned Loose in Dublin also be a hot time in the old town Airville passion week services began wed april Llewellyn Grafton.
