(By Associated Press)

Henrietta, Tex., April, 25--Virtually every building in this community of 3,000 in north central Texas was wrecked by a storm which came up suddenly last night, leaving an estimate damage of $200,00. A 30-mile wind, threw hail stones as large as a hen's egg, breaking every window in town. Hail to a depth of a foot on the streets and water two feet deep in the cellars sent many folks on their way to Wichita Falls, 20 miles away, for temporary protection.
