Richard Bloch, 78, who helped found tax preparation giant H&R Block Inc., died of heart failure yesterday at his home in Kansas City, Mo. Mr. Bloch founded the company in 1955 with his brother, Henry, to take advantage of the vacuum left as the Internal Revenue Service stopped providing free income tax returns service. The Kansas City-based company became the world's largest tax preparer, serving 21 million clients in 11 countries. Mr. Bloch's other main focus was cancer. He received a diagnosis of terminal lung cancer in 1978, but was found to be cured after two years of aggressive treatment.

MOSSY GROVE, Tenn. - Dazed residents of Tennessee, Alabama and Ohio spent yesterday picking through vast piles of rubble, looking for friends, for belongings, for anything familiar after about 70 tornadoes, a few of them extraordinarily powerful, cut a broad swath of wreckage across the South and Midwest over the weekend. At least 36 people died in the storms and hundreds were injured. Scores of houses were obliterated, several manufacturing plants were destroyed, and uncounted cars, trucks and trailers were lifted, twisted and hurled into the raging funnel clouds that pulverized whole communities.
