Ehrenfeld Disaster Is One Of Most
Terriic Recorded In History Of
Central Coal Fields
(By Associated Press)
HARRISBURG, Ill., March 30.-
Eight miners were burned to death
in a gas explosion this morning in
the Saline County Coal corporation
mine number two at Ledford, five
miles south of here. The bodies char-
red almost beyond recognition, were
found by rescue workers late today.
The bodies were found two miles
northeast of the bottom of the main.
shaft which is 9500 feet deep. The
explosion was due to ignition of a
pockt of gas, presumably from an
open light used by miners.
About 300 miners employed in oth-
er sections of the workings ascended
to the ground level in safety after the
explosion. Rescuenworkers for a time
had held a slender hope that the
eight victims, who were reported miss-
ing, had retreated to safety but were
unable. to leave the mine.
EHRENFELD, Pa., March 30.-Three
hundred coal miners of this region
were safe in their homes tonight, sur-
vivors of one of the most terrific ex-
plosions in the history of the central
Pennsylvania coal fields. They walk-
'ed to safety, unharmed b the ter-I
rifying blast, which took a toll of four
The explosion ripped through mine
number three of the Pennsylvania
Coal and Coke company, shortly after
noon, when the entire day shift was
at work in the headings leading from i
the main drift. The force of the
blast was felt ten miles away, rocking
this mining village of 200 houses as
if it were the center of an earth-
Hundreds of miners and familes of
the miners in the working rushed to
the mine mouth. They held little hope
for their fellow workers and loved
ones. believing that a blast of such
force would surely claim the life of
every man in the underground tun-
nels. .
As they watched rescuers trying to
push their way in to the main incline,
they saw a miner, besmeared with
coal dust, walk erect from a nearby
entry which was not damaged. Then
camee another close behind and still
others followed. The watchers at last
realized these were survivors stepping
from what was believed to be their
tomb. A great shout of joy went up
as wives and children of the sur-
vivors pushed forward to grasp their
husbands and fathers.

DETROIT, March 30-Sources close
to Henry Ford said tonight that they
considered the injury to the motor
manufacture last Sunday night when
bis coupe was forced over an em-
bankment to have been a deliberate
effort to kill him.
"A great many" investigators,
ether than members of the Ford or-
ganization staff have been placed at
work, it was stated, and the automo-
bile which dashed past Mr. Ford's car
and swept it off the road, is believed
to have been identified.!

Mr. Ford is understood to have
stated that when he left the gates of
the Ford River Rouge plant, driving
alone as is his custom, he noticed,
that he was followed by two men,
dr'ving in a Studebaker automobile.
As Mr. Ford, driving a light coupe
