Mining co. accused of negligence

WASHINGTON ( P) -- A 21-year-
old survivor of the Idaho mmne
fire that killed 91 men told
congressmen yesterday of dead
and choking men a mnle under-
ground and said he had no in-
structinons on what to do in
such an emergency.
The survivor, Byron Schulz,
testified before a House sub-
committee along with a panel of
union officials who alleged the
miners were trapped in the Sun-
shine silver mine at Kellogg
with no maps ofsecondary es-
cape rouites, carbon monoxide
masks that in some cases did
not work, and elevators that soon
stopped.
Testifying with Schulz w e r e
officials of the United S t e e l-
workers of America, including
Adolph Schwartz, the union's
safety director.
Frank McGee, director of the
union's District 38 covering 14
Western states, said further that
partly because of what he called
a primitice telephone system to
the lowest shafts, some of the
miners were taken to supposedly
safe upper shafts only to find
the fire was there too.
McKee accused the Sunshine
Mining Co. of "the most callous"
disregard for even the mo't basic
protection of its employes" and

accused the U.S. Bureau of Min-
es of minimal cooperation 'vith
the union.
"I could better shai acterize
the cooperation as sabotage," he
said, "and an attempt not to
investigate but to bury the dis-
aster with the dead."
McKee also said the com-
pany announced the fire in the
mine might have been going

three or four days before it was
detected May 2 and ,aid, "it is
not beyond possibility that min-
ers could have been missgin-

The subcommittee said mining
company and Bureau of Mines
officials have been ivited to
testify but hearings for them
have not yet been arranged.
