Some of the men trapped this time survived the one in 1956. COMING WITH a sudden, explosive force that shook all of Springhill, the upheaval sent tons of rock, coal and earth crashing around 172 night shift workers Thursday night. Gordon, chief of the collle'ry operations of the Dominion Steel & Coal Cprp., brought the word of the lost hope hours after teams of rescue men entered the mine. Gordon said the two lowest levels of the mine were shattered. Floors heaved upward, upward, jamming machinery and conveyers against the roof. Miners coming to the surface surface said gas was so bad there Turn to Page 2, Column 2 that even men with respirators could not penetrate it. Gordon said the only reason hope still was held for men at the third level 13,000 feet from the pithead was that they have not been located. About 36 men were working at this level, 400 and 800 feet above the others.

The crown weight three pounds and is valued at $12,000. i pithead in Springhill six mine supervisors were trapped with the men. THE MINE slants 4,400 feet down into the ground, for a distance of 14,300 feet. Sometimes Sometimes the slant is as steep as 45 degrees. Gordon said underground upheavals called bumps by miners occur when pressures pressures above and below the mine shafts build up, then let go- go- They are common in this soft-coal soft-coal soft-coal mining area, but usually usually cause only minor rock and coal falls. AT THE first sound of the rumbling that accomp a n i e d Thursday night's disaster, the miners' families feared the worst. Mothers, fathers, children children and other relatives of the miners flocked to the pithead for what turned out for & ome to be an all-night all-night all-night vigil. Mayor Ralph Gilroy, who said earlier the disaster may mean the end of Springhill mining, vowed later: "There always will be a Springhill." "Miners of Springhill are a very peculiar breed," he added. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mich- Mich- niak, 8430 Birch, Taylor Center, Center, finally abandoned hope late in the day for Michniak's father, Theodore, 57. He was one of 87 men trapped in the mine.

The relief came with the news Friday morning that Mrs. Husar's father, George Hayden, 58, was rescued early Fridaj'. Hayden was hospitalized with a broken ankle and back injuries. "But thank goodness he's alive," Mrs. Gloria Husar, 30, said. Two other relatives, Husar's father, Steven; and Mrs. Husar's brother, Glen, 23, both of whom work in the mines, escaped the disaster. But the Husars' joy was marred by the Michniaks' grief. The two families are very close.

Mrs. Michniak, who has one son, recalled Friday how often she and her husband had tried to persuade his father to leave Springhill. "He wouldn't listen," she said.
