Juneau, AK Landslide Hits Apartments, Nov 1936
BODIES OF 10 ARE FOUND AT JUNEAU.
SIX PERSONS STILL ARE ON MISSING LIST AFTER LANDSLIDE.
Juneau, Alaska, Nov. 25. -- (AP) -- Mud and ruins of Sunday's great landslide surrendered two more bodies to rescue crews tonight, raising the known deaths to ten and leaving six remaining on the missing list.
One other body was recovered earlier in the day.
MRS. GEORGE LEE was found dead among the debris of the demolished Nickinovich Apartments and OSCAR LAITO, Sitka, Alaska, in the wrecked
rooming house operated by MRS. FRED MATSON
who is still missing.
PETE BATTELO'S body was the first one discovered today in the Nickinovich pile.
Rescue crews composed of business men, laboreres and miners continued digging into the mass of mud, rock and jumbled timbers in the hope of finding more of the missing.
Those unaccounted for and known to have been in the slide area when the 100-foot wide avalanche rushed down a mountain are:
MR. and MRS. HUGO PETERSON in the Peterson building.
MRS. MATSON in her boarding house.
MRS. JAMES ROMA in the Nickinovich.
MRS. LENA PETERSON in the Nickinovich.
JOE VANALI in the Nickinovich.
VANALI'S 3-year-old daughter, LORRAINE, was found alive in the ruins last night and died in a hospital a few hours later. MRS. VANALI was among those found Monday. They and BATTELO were dining together when the slide caught them.
