Sev- Catastrophe Worst Since 1923 Tremor By JOHN RODERICK TOKYO (AP) - A tremendous earthquake set off fires and caused millions of dollars in damage today to Niigata, major port city in northern Japan. Eight persons were killed, two were missing and 108 injured by the quake that jolted the city for 2V6 minutes. Police listed the over-all toll in the stricken northern Japan area including Niigata at 21 dead, 2 missing and 129 injured. It was the third disaster to strike Niigata in two decades. The important industrial-commercial city of 290.000 was destroyed by a U.S. air raid in the closing days of World War II. The city was rebuilt, only to be leveled by a fire in October, 1955. The temblor — strongest in Japan since the catastrophic quake of 1923 wiped out Tokyo and Yokohama—hit a vast area of the main Japanese island of Honshu at 1:01 p.m. Sending a massive ground wave through IO northern prefectures with a total population of 15 million, it left behind a trail of dead and suffering, flaming industrial installations, broken highways and railways and ugly fissures in the countryside.

But an emergency telecast from the stricken city showed blazing oil tanks, a destroyed bridge and an ejght-story hospital tilting on its shattered foundation. Explosions could be heard in the background as the pictures flashed on screens in Tokyo. Shortage of water made it impossible to fight flames from burning oil tanks. There was fear that oil spreading over the waterfront and lowland areas might ignite. Besides Niigala, the hardest hit cities were Murakami, Mi-zuhara, Mitsuke, and T'oyosaka. Damage was not as heavy as in Niigata, which was without gas, water, electricity or normal telegraph and telephone communications. In the northern area the total of houses destroyed was listed at 371 with 825 others damaged 138 slightly damaged and several hundred flooded at first-floor level. Five bridges were washed away, the railways were cut in 24 places and highways damaged at 24 places. ' BN « , * $ | A Good Project?

First proposed last week when the group held its initial session in preparation for its summer program, it was furthered last night when a representative group asked City Council for assistance.
