7 MEET DEATH FROM TORNADO.
NORTH DAKOTA COMMUNITY HAS BAD STORM.
Grand Forks, N.D., July 3. -- (AP) -- At least seven persons were killed and 14 hospitalized when a tornado struck three places near Grafton, N.D., early tonight.
Six migrant farm workers, three of them children, were killed on the LUTHER KYKKEN farm two miles west of Auburn, and one man, FRANK ROGALLA, died in a hospital after the twister hit Warsaw, N.D., south of Grafton. MRS. ROGALLA was reported missing.
Nearly the entire town of Warsaw was wiped out, states attorney WALLACE WARNER said, with only the Catholic church and town hall left standing.
The migrant laborers were all members of several families, about 20 persons, living in one house at the LYKKEN farm, seven miles north of Grafton.
