PITTSBURGH IS BEGINNING TASK OF REBUILDING

Great Flood Rolls Back Leaving Six Known Dead And $25,000,000 Damage

UNDER MILITIA

Mayor Proclaims Holiday; Business Areas Deserted; City Still In Darkness

Pittsburgh, Pa., March 19 America's steel capital threw all its resources into relief and rehabilitation work today as a great flood rolled back, leaving six known dead and damage of more than $25,000,000.

The renowned "golden triangle," wealthy business center, was under martial rule with more than a thousand national guardsmen holding back all unnecessary traffic and keeping out the populace.

By proclamation of Mayor William N. McNair it was a legal holiday and the business section was almost deserted.

There still was no electric power for the great metropolis of 700,000 inhabitants and little prospect of any for a day or two.
