Steps are being taken by the officers of the Freeland Community Corporation in the local group's effort to get the Fond Creek and Upper Lehigh coal basin back into production. Officers have written to Con gressman J. Harold Flannery ask ing his advice on the governmental agency which might assist the local corporation to push the project for driving a drainage tunnel which would drain this basin and permit the operation of the Upper Lehigh, Highland No. 6 and Pond Creek coal mines with the subsequent employ ment of several hundred men lor a number of years. Following is the text of the letter written to Congressman Flannery: Hon. J. Harold Flannery, Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Flannery: Between his work as a legislator, the intolerable heat and the im portunities of his constituents, the congressman finds little or no time for relaxation. With this admission on my part, you will realize it is with some re luctance that I address myself to you for your assistance, but I do so because the interests of our entire community demand that some fed eral agencies be approached with a view of creating employment in this section of our county. There is a coal basin about one mile north of our town, running east-west for a distance of about four miles, divided between three separate owners, the western por tion being owned by the new Upper Lehigh Coal Company, the middle section by the Jeddo-Highland Coal Company and the easternmost section by the heirs of the Hemsath, Fairchild and Brandmier families. Mining operations in the said basin were conducted by the said groups for about twenty-five years, until ten years ago, and with profit and success. For the past ten years or so, several attempts Jiave been made by the owners or their lessees to con tinue operations in that section, but after starting the work, the operators were confronted with the necessity of pumping the accumulated water at considerable expense, which made it impossible to operate the mines in question with profit. The recently organized Freeland Community Corporation, of which I am the acting president, and which has a membership of over five hundred residents of our town, conceived the idea that if the problem of pumping from the mines were solved, the mines could be operated with profit, with the resultant employment of hundreds of men who would be taken off the relief rolls or WPA projects. At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors of the said Community Corporation, we had a mining engineer, Frank Lubrecht, of Hazleton, consulting with us. Mr. Lubrecht studied the entire situation and came to the conclusion that the water from the entire basin could be drained by a canal to be constructed at the eastern end of the basin. The length of the canal would be approximately one and one-half miles. Having had a conference with the Jeddo-Highland Coal Company officials upon this matter, the officials of this company agreed that the construction of a canal would dewater the mines in question and would make it possible to mine coal in the said mines with a profit. Neither of the owners of the said three groups of owners, however, is able to construct that canal at its own expense either separately or combinedly, and for that reason, the three mines are closed and the several hundred miners and laborers who were formerly employed in the said mines, are idle and mostly on relief rolls. Our Community Corporation is greatly interested in trying to create employment in Freeland and its immediate vicinity, and the board, at its last meeting a few days ago, instructed me to turn to you to find out whether or not the canal in question could be constructed with federal funds. The construction of the canal would cost approximately $120,000, as es- timated by the engineer. The quantity of coal in the mines Dandy Surprise RESIDE IM THREE, HOTEL? I SIR.

In question, according to Mr. Lubrecht, could glvo between BOO ami 1,000 men employment for a period of about ten years. That the expenditure of tho said amount of $10,000 would ultimately result In saving M'veral times thnt sum for tho government, there is no question about it, It will-be appreciated if you will direct us to the right governmental agency in an effort to obtain the necessary funds and general assistance for the purpose of building the drainage canal mentioned above. Very sincerely yours, G. John Bruger, Acting President Freeland Community Corporation, Sunday League Games.
