Same as Catalog #513539. News in Brief: Blizzard in South and Midwest. "A 3-day blizzard blankets the Great Plains - a wintry ordeal for 5 states in which at least 38 perish, as hundreds of cars are marooned, and a crack transcontinental train buried - isolated with over 200 aboard - for days." Cars and people battle wind-blown snow. Aerials of passenger train half-buried, stuck in snow. Man shovels snow off roof of house. Back to the train, mostly freed - a man chips away at the ice and snow.
