Thought Lost, Mine
Owner Finds Way Out
MARION, Ill., Aug. 11.-(P)-The
strength that led him to safety,
through mud, water, slime and com-
plete darkness, returned rapidly to-
night to Jesse Wilson, 28-year-old
coal operator, who had been lost 36
hours in the tunnels in an old aban-
doned mine.
Wilson reached the entry while
members of a searching crew still
were far in the recesses of the mine.
He had gone into the pit, which
adjoins his own mine, on an inspec-
tion trip. His miner's lamp went out,
he said, when he stumbled into a
shallow pit of water. His matches
became soaked and he was unable to
light the lamp again.
"I haven't any idea how far I
wandered," he related. "Finally I
stumbled over a piece of track. I
knew that if I could follow the trackI
long enough, I would come to a
switch. Then I could find my way
out, because a switch always points
to the mine bottom."
Court Fines Last
of6 Lansing Strikers
MASON, Mich., Aug. 11.--(P) -

court here today assessed Lee Gla-
zier, 38, and Homer Meister, 24, both

Wrecking Company plant of Lansing.

of six cases which grew out of the
Lansing strike. The defendants were
accused of unlawful interference with
a workman.

Lansing local of the United Auto-
mobile Workers, and Lawrence Chris-
tian, previously were convicted but
their cases have been appealed to
the Ingham County circuit court.

Washburn, wife of the union of-
ficial, and Mrs. Vera Christian, were
dropped.

Walls of stone are no barrier for this powerful Austrian .tank, shown in maneuvers near Bruck. Plowing
along at high spoed, this metal monster crashes headlong through a brick barricade as though it were made of

others.
