Selma. April 24. ? A spring tor
nado struck in the Pine Level sec

afternoon about 6 o'clock, leaving
in its wake thousands of dollars
of property damage and at least
six people injured.
The storm leveled trees and
buildings in its mile-wide path.
The length of the path of de

it extended through the Princeton

a distance of probably 15 miles.
The homes of Mr. and Mrs. J.
A. Roberts and Mr. nnd Mrs. J.
E. Little were demolished in the
Pine Level section. Mr. and Mrs.
Roberts and daughter, Maybell,
received treatment in Johnston
