Large Number of Men
Fatally Injured
by Blast.
150, Imprisoned, Wait
in Mine Gallery
for Rescue.
(By Assoiated IPres)
ALSDO), GermayO ()ct. 21
- ilhe explosion of a ton of dyna
mite in the No. 2 shaft of the An
na coal mine here early this morn-
ing killed probably oo men..
The number has not been dein-
itely established, with the Prussia
government press bureau estimat-
ing loo, and mine oficials caln-
lating the total as less, but 6 od-
ies had been recovered by o'clock
tonight and it was felt more would
be found.
Many Await Rescue
In addition, 76 miners are in the
hospital, with the liklihood of some
of them dying, while about 150
others still are awaiting rescue
from a gallery beneath the scen
of the explosion. Relief experts be-
lieve part of these, who will be
reached from neighboring galler-
les not damaged, will be found in
The explosion, which occured
1200 feet below the surface, dealt
death and destruction for miles a-
round and brought grief to the 10,-
000 inhabitants of this mining
town. All day long weeping wives
and children waited outside the
pit mouth.
Three Ip4osi ns LHeard
Apparently there were three ex-
plosions. The first, a gas blast,
caused the dynamite stored in one'
of the shafts to explode. The great
force of this upheavel blew out gas-
oline tanks in a building on the
surface and the administration
building also collapsed. This lat -
ter inflicted a score of casaulties.
Mine officials said part of the dif-
ficulty in estimatng the casualties
lay in the fact that many of the
666 miners who went down on the
day shift escaped safely but were
so frightened they did not check
out with the company.
The 150 imprisoned men are at a
depth of 1,550 feet and ceaseless
efforts are being made to reach
them. Damaged ventilation and
pumping machinery has been re-
paired to facilitate the work.
When the blast occurred the f r't
thought of the countryside was of
an earthquake, with panic-stricken
country-folk for miles around flee-
ing into the open.
This was the second large Ger-
man mine disaster within four
months, the previous one being at
Neurode, Silesia with a death roi
of more than 150. -

Then there is an economic treat-
ment of the question of "dates."
Gargoyle's theory is that the success
of a date depends ultimately on the
amount of money that is spent.
In accordance with this principle,
an enterprisng economist has work-
ed out a series of problems, deter-
mined the variable factor and found
out which "dates" should be avoid-
ed. The conclusion which he reaches
may prove rather startling.
Another of the features of this
issue of the Gargoyle is the en-

occurred during Orientation week.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-A na-

unemployment problems began to
take shape today when President
Hoover after a conference with a,
special grop of cabinet members,
announced desigiation of C o 1.

Last year, upon action of the
board of directors of the Union, the
Michigan Opera was discontinued
after its 24th annual presentation
because of financial losses. The pro-
duction, which was presented by
Mimes, was staged in Ann Arbor for
a week, and then went on the road
during Christmas vacation, visiting
cities in Michigan and neighboring
states. The first show was produced
in 1908; Donald H. Haines, now a
member of the journalism depart-
ment, wrote the manuscript for it.
