THE BAKERStflELD CAL1FORN1AN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1036 WELCOME FOR Kfc-ENFORCEMENTS Two More Codies Recovered in Colliery at Logan, West Virginia (Asiociatcd freti Leatcd Wire) ' LOGAN, W. Va., Sefct. 3.—Th« number o£ known dead from an ex ploilon In the MncBeth mlno rose to four today with the recovery of two bodies by rescuers digging desperately through a 400-foot wall of slate behind which six more are trapped. The blast killed two men outright and spread deadly after-damp fumea through the working, eight miles south o£ thin mountain town. After several hours digging, ..the rescuers came upon tho bodies of the other two, 'lying almost burled In muck and debris which filled tho shaft, E. II. Skftjcgn, tipple foreman for tho Hutchlnson Coal Company, owners of the property, said: ''It's only a matter of n few hours now until wo know whether the other* In tho fthnft are dead or not. We've got about 150 more feet of digging to do before we can reach them." • Tho dead wore Ellsha Watts, 82; Andy Oazdlk, 60; Orover Sauhders, 28, and William Reffett, 40. Ab Lambert, who was working with Watts and Qazdlk, escaped their fato by crawling several hundred feet from the blast area. Comrades picked him up unconscious and carried him to a hospital, where attendants said he llkelj^ would recover. A crowd of almost 2000 which gathered about the mine Into yesterday, dwindled to about 250 early today. The mine shaft sinks at a 3C-de- * greo angle for 840 feet, then levels out for more than two miles. Tho explosion occurred near the end of the shaft and rescuers were forced to work through a crooked entry' way, so small only 40 could operate at a time. TWO HOLIDAYS DECLARED I,OS ANGELES, Sept. 8.

AMBRTOOE:, Mass., sept. 3.— Anyone liking to add, subtract and multiply easy numbers can take pencil and "sit in" today with the world's foremost mathematicians as they near tho solution of a 250-year- old problem announced at the Harvard Tercentenary. Tho solution Is of Wnrin's problem, It started in the middle a«res with tho arithmetic thnt school children learn when they find that two times two Is four, or two squared, and that adding two squared twice gives eight. In tho middle ages there was much discussion of the fnct that every whole number Is tho sum of, not more than four such squares.' In 1770 tho mathematician. Wnr- Ing, projected this simple mathematical rhythm Into higher mathematics by declaring that every positive Integer can be written as not more than the sum of nine cubes. Thereupon began ono of the preat mathematical "marathons" of modern times. It was found that every number can bo written aa not. moro than 4 squares, fl cubes, 19 fourth j powers nnd 37 fifth powers. I In 1809 tho German malliematl- ' clan, Wlefrlch, proved that Wurlng's nine cubes were correct. The finish of tho Marathon wa.s announced today by Leonard Hupene Dlckson, professor of mathematics, University of Chicago. Ho Is the mathematician who once figured that the chances of a perfect bridge SEARCHING FOR MISSING JUDGE hand of 13 of the same suit is ono In 040,000,000,000. V Today he announced a short formula which gives tho number of powers, from seventh power Inclusive tip to Infinity, which can bo added together to give any chosen number. Thus, ho said, tho largest number of seventh powers needed who«re mim will add to any chosen number is 1*3, Probably only ono number requires addition of H3 seventh powers, he said, and that number is 2176. Tho formula Is two to tho nth power, mlntiB two, plus the fraction throe halves to tho nth power. N la tho power sought. Thus to discover tho maximum number of seventh j powers, X Is given the value seven, j It IK worked by raising two to the ! seventh power, subtracting two and | adding three halves raised to tho s«v- onth. Tho decimal resulting from this fraction is didcnrded. M. F. Tighe Will Quit Steel Union PITTSBURGH. Sept, 3.—Michael F.
